ON TO NICE, FRANCE, for Rotary's
1967 Convention May 21-25! That is
the message of nearly every word,
photo, drawing, and advertisement in
this special regular issue. Now you
may miss the carnival parade in Nice
you go in February-but ah,
-unless
the parade of flowers!-you may catch
a drift of petals right in your face during Convention week . . . and it is our
hopeful prediction that where'er you
wander in this wonderful wanderland
of Europe your way will oft be blocked
by the little processions and the elaborate parades that so often pop up be-
fore the traveller, or vice versa, in
mountain village and city boulevard.
ADVERTISEMENTS we mentioned.
So many advertisers are so sure you're
going and are so eager to serve you
when you do that they have come in

Kindness, by A. R. Roalman
How to Make Good Bricks Better
In a recent issue of TnB RorlnreN I
read an article on Korea (Hopes Rise on
Chungnung HiIl, May, 1966) telling
how houses are being made of earthen
blocks in that country. These blocks are
very durable, but with an asphalt emulsion now on the market the same blocks
can be strengthened and waterproofed at
a very low cost.
In the past quarter century a petroleum company has developed a process
of chemically breaking down molecules
of asphalt and suspending them in an unnatural state, thus making asphalt soluble in water. This emulsion, mixed with
water and clay-bearing soils (non-alkalinic), produces strawless adobe bricks
ing such a wortbwhile topic as kindness.
In fact, we thought it was such an excellent idea that we are transporting the
idea from Japan to Belvidere, Illinois.
Our pastor, Father McCarren, and our
school principal, Sister Mary Julice, are
both very much in favor of it as are all
the teacbers. Our motto is "Let's Applaud Those Who Are Nice to Know."
The parents of tbe school children have
been made aware of our campaign. We
hope to get a city-wide campaign going.

Drunk Driver Story Helps Judge
Curb the Drunken Driver, in THe
RotenreN for October is of great interest
to me as I am sure it is to other judges
confronted with the drunk driver.
There seems to be no quick cure for
the problem, but I feel articles such as
this one by Robert E. Malkin do help

a mathematical formula or computation
to take the drunken driver off the road,
reduce crime, and help salvage that seg-

adults on an increasing scale in this area.

the number one clue as to where the

are merely a means of determining
whether a person can be arrested, and
maybe convicted-but are not a solution
to the problem.
Nor will there be satisfactory solutions, in an increasing number of people's thinking, to this and the myriad of
other tragical conditions related to alcohol on a fast growing scale, until the
use of alcohol as a beverage is wiped
out. Whenever we are willing to face the
alcoholic beverage problem squarely,
courageously, and honestly, then there
may possibly be some solutions found
toward reducing crime, drunkenness
(driving or not), alcoholism, youth erosion, poverty, child abuse, and the
wrecking of family life in a multitude
of ways.
There is much conversation about
"moderation" and "discipline," etc., in
the matter of drinking alcoholic beverages. Up to date no one seems to have
come up with an acceptable or remedying definition as to what is "moderation
or discipline" in the use of narcotics and
drugs as a beverage (science, I believe,
includes alcohol in this category), especially when placed on the market legally
for easy availability by the public with
little restriction.
Mr. Malkin's article does an excel-
lent job of establishing the fact that there
is a problem, much bigger than the limited area which he writes about. Unfortunately, in the same writing there seems
to be an attempt to justify indulgence in
the very basic contributor (alcoholic
beverages) which creates the problem.
It appears that the time is fast coming when we need to wake up and deal
with this WHOLE problem of alcohol
as a beverage, wisely, sincerely, and
honestly-especially honestly.

"The land of France is remarkable for the clearness of its

Paul Valery. These differences range from the sparkle of Paris,
"City of Light," to the splendor of the chateau country

a great center of intellectual and artistic life. The large
regional cities-Marseilles, Lyons, Bordeaux, Nice-have their

The landscape is different in every region and, even
at its sternest and most desolate, as in Castile. it has a
special quality that impresses itself upon the soul.
The big cities of Spain can be bustling on certain
hours, but they can also be quiet and still as cloisters.

The Spanish, it is said, are natural gentlemen.
Washington Irving said there were more natural gentlemen in Spain than in any other place, except perhaps
among the American Indians.
Gentlemen or not, the Spaniards are natural. In a
world where every day people are becoming more standardized, they are still different, even among themselves.
Andalusians, Basques, Castilians, Galicians-not only
their language and customs but also their temperament
is different.
Everyday life in Spain contains adventure for the
visitor.
Spain represents an encounter with art, mysticism,
and the highest achievements of the human spirit.

spectacle of religious festivals-Holy Week in Seville;
ports from which men like Columbus sailed to discover

is an overlarge villa the color of the thick cream the
French use as a mortar to mix with wild strawberries.
Awnings shade its windows and pebbled walks lead off
across the grounds which are a kingly estate by the edge
of the Mediterranean, a sea that varies between turquoise and royal blue depending upon the sun, the sky,
and the season.
Ever since 1888 the Hotel du Cap has been in the
same family which has made a studied science of catering to the overprivileged. In World War I, U. S. Army
nurses persuaded the management to stay open in
Summer. Before that it had catered to the chilled
English, the frostbitten Russian archdukes and snowdusted Polish counts. Winter was its only season. In

It is one thing to swim off the crags at the hotel's
watering hole called Eden Roc and to have lunch with
the elegant by the side of the sea. But it is another
pleasure, using the hotel as home, to journey off on
excursions into the fascination of the hill towns that
nest among the slopes rising behind the shore. Up at
Biot, a village between Antibes and Cagnes, not far from
a greenhouse filled with carnations, is the handsome
museum exclusively dedicated to the works of Leger
in the 50 fruitful years of his life, 1905 to 1955.
Picasso dominates the village of Vallauris, the potter's
center to which he came at war's end to try his hand in
the plastic arts. One of his celebrated pieces of sculpture
stands
in the town square, a gift from the artist to the

village that gave him shelter. The shops still sell some
limited editions of his plates and plaques, but the sidewalks are also lined with the art of other ceramicists,
most of it brilliant and imaginative.
Yet nowhere is the setting more appealing than high
in the hills at St. Paul de Vence, a marvel of a town
where villagers play a bowling game called pltanque
and the walls all around are hung with the best of

"Yes. Older than the centuries; older than

So they spoke, Tess of the d'Urbervilles and her husband Angel Clare, when they reached Stonehenge on
the last night of their flight. Tess flung herself upon an
oblong slab which was warm and dry, heated by the
sun during the preceding day and she soon fell fast
asleep. With the dawn the pursuers were upon them
and Tess was taken to the prison at Winchester.
The description of Stonehenge at midnight in the
last chapters of Hardy's Tess ol the d'Urbervilles, which
46
I read when I was young, left such a deep impression
upon me that when my wife and I had a chance to take
a trip in the southwest counties of England about ten
years ago, we drove to Stonehenge from Salisbury late
one afternoon.
Stonehenge is a circular setting of large standing
stones situated about eight miles north of Salisbury,
Wiltshire, which is a part of Thomas Hardy country
of ancient Wessex in England. Modern research holds
that the oldest part of the monument belongs to the
late Neolithic period, about 2,000 B.C.
We left the car at some distance from the outer earthwork and approached the huge central standing stones,
Tne RorenrAx
about 30 of them, all six to eight feet tall. The stones
were still warm with the June sun. There were no other
people around, no sound. My imagination was wandering in the scenes 4,000 years ago with these gigantic
monument of huge blocks of stone mysteriously arranged. Nobody knows from where and how these
stones were brought to the present site. These majestic
stones have stood through the ages, through the wars,
through all weather; and through all other natural and
human happenings.
The sun had already fallen beyond the horizon of
the Salisbury Plain. Everything was still and quiet.
There was no perceptible movement. Age of 4,000
years gave the massive stone pillars strange dignity.
The neighborhood of Salisbury was one of the most
important areas in prehistoric England and a meeting
place of early cultures. Stonehenge is an example of
such a site. Old Sarum, a prehistoric fortress, is two
miles north of present Salisbury, where one of the oldest and most beautiful cathedrals in England is situated.
Such moments passed in the quiet atmosphere "far
from the madding crowd" is an important experience
of our life.
Salisbury and its neighborhood is the place I want

far-from-homeness. I savoured sight,
sound, and smell-the dirt and the glamour, the beauty
and the ugliness, the good taste and dinginess existing
side by side in the holy places; the splendor of the minarets and the grace of the quite young and lovely belly
dancers at the Kervansaray (offering the tourist one of
the best shows in Europe).

Moslem guide who spoke an exquisite English and apologized prettily each time she found herself mentioning
the fact that the Crusaders had looted a favorite monu-
ment. She insisted on buying me tea, not Turkish
coffee, outside the bazaar, and after accompanying us,
on her own time, on an unsuccessful shopping expedition for a leather coat sweetly waved away all suggestions of reward.

ROTARYS EYRIE ON THE RIVI ERA
An 'eogle's nesl' odds o medievql touch to o modern four-lown Rotary Club on lhe Riviero.
II|}ALL IT the height of inspiration: Friedrich
V
Nietzsche, the dour German philosopher, climbed
up and down a mule path here while mulling over one
of his major works, Thus Spake Zarathustra. Call it a
perched village, chosen centuries ago with a practical
eye for defense and thus meant to be inaccessible. Call
it, as sometimes it is called, the Eyrie, or eagle's nest,
for the way it nestles atop a rock mountain high above
the sparkling Mediterranean. And, finally, call it Eze,
a medieval town that has been declared a French national monument where no modern buildings may be
erected and all the wiring is underground. It is located
near Nice on the Moyenne Corniche, or middle ledge,
along the Riviera. Eze is one member of a quartet that
speaks with a single Rotary voice: the Rotary Club
48
of Beaulieu-Eze-Villefranche-Saint-Jean-Cap Ferrat. Admitted to Rotary International in November
1957, this combined Club composed of members from
the four towns meets regularly at the Casino de Beaulieu. President Paul P6lissier is an engineer who resides
in Villefranche and Secretary Ren6 Fassio is a druggist
in Beaulieu. The ntembers of this combined Club live
in one of the most scenic sectors on the French Riviera.
In the old port of Villefranche, the tiny Chapelle St.
Pierre is decorated with a superb series of frescoes done
by the French poet-moviemaker-artist Jean Cocteau.
The medieval and the modern exists side by side in
these four towns, everything from Rotarian Robert
Wolff's converted castle in Ezr, to Secretary Rene Fassio's American-style drugstore down in Beaulieu.

F( n.urlv five months distant. but the delishts of
Nice, on the elegant French Rivieia, are already" working a magnetic spell on the world's Rotarians. Plans for
travel to Nice are bubbling in hundreds of Clubs and
Districts. The largest single effort is the work of the RI
North American Transportation Committee. It will
guide Convention goers to dozens of planes and ships,
including the S. S. Independence, which sails from New
York May 9, carrying, among others, many past, present, and incoming officers of Rotary International. The
RI Australia and New Zealand Transportation Committee is arranging passage for Convention goers from its
area on jet flights and aboard the S. S. Orsova, which
sails from Auckland
April
15.
Rotarians of District 516 in California have engaged
a special train to whisk Convention goers from Paris to
Nice. With space for up to 700 passengers, the train will
make the run using equipment similar to that used on
the French National Railroad's 100-mile-per-hour
Mistral. As the train races to Nice, passengers from
District 516 and elsewhere will enjoy a full-course meal
and events calculated to give an early start to Convention Fellowship.
Rotarians and guests from England, Ireland, and
Sweden will be aboard the 27.000 ton S. S. Andes when
it sails from Southampton, England, May 16, for a two
week cruise to Mediterranean ports. During a five-day
stop at Villefranche, adjacent to Nice, passengers will
live aboard ship while attending the 1967 Convention.
In South Africa, Mexico, the U.S.A., and many other
parts of the Rotary world, Rotarians are booking air

HOLIDAY FOR SIXTY
"A wonderful holiday" had been promised, and so 60
11 and l2-year-old boys laden with clothes, toothbrushes, and high spirits gathered at the Town Hall in
Auckland, New Zealand. The boys, drawn from 30
schools in the area, climbed into cars driven by local
Rotarians and whizzed off to a campsite at nearby Kelston. During the six days that followed the boys lived in
cottages and enjoyed some of the busiest days of their
lives. In addition to the usual sports, games, spirited
singing, and other camp activities, there were trips to
nearby places, movies, and several kinds of in-camp
entertainment. Camp Rotaboy, the Rotarians called it,
and it took nearly the entire Club to bring it off properly, plus donations and assistance from local businesses.
All too soon for the boys, the outing came to an end,
and the Rotarians delivered them to their homes. All
of them thanked the Club members and some put their
appreciation into letters, but the best assurance the Club
had of the project's success came in a letter from David
Tobsis, who wrote: "It was the first holiday I have had
away from home, and I didn't even get homesick."
LAW DAY, U. S. A.
It's a relatively new observance and hasn't

reached the picnic and parade stage, so Law Day slips by
almost unnoticed in most U.S. communities-but not so

With 3,500 pamphlets, numerous

staged a Law Day banquet on April 28. The guest
speaker was Jon R. Waltz, trial lawyer and author of the
recent book, "The Trial of Jack Ruby."

"wE DID lT, BOYS!"
It was the first major public
ap-
pearance for the three-year-old Rotary Club of Chembur (Bombay), India, and more than a dozen Rotarians
spent months working on the arrangements for the Club's Conference on
Employer-Employee Relations. The
topic was a "hot" one, according to
the Club, and no stone was left unturned in finding notable men of every
shade of opinion to serve as participants in the discussion. 1965-66 Club
President Kishore Udani opened the
meeting by welcoming audience and
participants and telling the Club's purpose in sponsoring the Conference.
Then a justice of the Bombay High
Court established the tone and topic
of the conference and turned over
the meeting to the participants. What
followed was a four-hour discussion
of wage policies, capitalism, employees' rights and obligations, socialism, and laws affecting employers and

One nice thing about taking the
ss United States to Europe is all that
deck space we put at your feet (five
acres to be exact) ! Makes it easy to
take a hike . . . or play a few fast sets
ofdeck tennis . . . or curl up in a deck
chair away from everyone else.
It's hard to believe a ship so big can
be so fast. Yet the ss United States is
thefastest ship in the world, An average
crossing takes just four-and-a-quarter
days. Since rnost of our crossings include a weekend, a business traveler
can enjoy a wonderful change of pace,
yet be away from his work just three
business days.
Best of all, when you travel to Europe
by ship you arrive at the top of your
form ! Step ashore and tour a museum
. . . or close a business deal. No need
to spend valuable time recuperating.
What else will you find aboard
America's Superliner? Superb European cuisine...everything from steamed

SHOW BIZ BONANZA
The song you're most likely to hear
sung and whistled by Rotarians of
Virginia Beach, Va., these days is
"There's No Business Like Show
flusiness"-and they have proof to
back up the claims made in this old
tune: three years of box office-busting
success on stage with the Virginia
Beach Civic Chorus (see photo).
Beginning in 1966 the two organizations have presented "Carousel,"
"Show Boat," and "South Pacific,"
playing to audiences of 2,000 or more.

This is the 100 hp Evinrude motor that
holds the world's outboard speed record
(130.9 mph) !
How come it also beats all other big
outboards in fuel economy ?
There are two reasons:
First, it has a unique fueling and ignition
system.
Each cylinder has its own fixed-jet car-
buretor. . . its own straight-in manifold
. . . its own individually sealed compres-
sion chamber, with internal exhaust
tuning. The combustion climate is
thermostatically controlled. And ignition is all-electronic
with no mechan-
-
ical contacts to wear or need servicing.
It all adds up to faster firing,
cleaner
combustion, more power per fuel charge
Second, the low-friction, low-profile
V-4 design is inherently balanced. lt
runs smoother. lts short, rigid crankshaft has less "torsional whip" than tall
in-line designs.
The high-torque, short-stroke V-4 design delivers higher thrust over a wider
speed range. Propellering is less critical.
Its versatile power is more efficient under varying load and speed conditions.
lf you enjoy passing gas docks, you'll
enjoy it oftener with a Starflite 100-S.

By RALPH BUGG
CHURCHWOMAN was dismayed when she was asked to
arrange a banquet for international per-
sons
in her college community.
How
would she contact them? What would
she feed them? Wbat kind of program
would she arrange?
After consulting experienced persons,
she obtained a roster from the college's foreign-student adviser. Invitations
stressed that although the dinner would
be in a church hall, it was purely social.
She followed up with letters offering es-
corts. The menu accommodated most
diets, and the guests themselves presented a program of music and readings.
The party went without a hitch.
Entertaining international
persons
need not be an ordeal. Often the seeming gulfs between cultures are figments
of our caricaturing minds and the real
differences are easily bridged by mutual
interests and shared humanity. But because of fears and notions, many foreign
visitors do not gain the intimate insights
into their host land and its people which
only volunteer ambassadors can provide.
But, comes the protest, being a fire-
side diplomat is a grave responsibility.
A bobble might alienate rather than endear. If only there were some rales.
True, an experienced host will relate
a delightful exception to every projected
rule. The only definite requirements are
interest and common courtesy. How-

Identify yourself to your prospective

Describe the event to which you are
inviting him, and, if expense is involved,
state that you are treating. (This is of
special concern to students.) Tell him

Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Kansas City, Tulsa,

Read about your guest's locality.
Country-by-country guides are helpful,
as are books on understanding other
cultures.
Avoid triteness. A student com"I stepped off the plane and
plained:
immediately somebody asked me, 'How
do you like it here?' I replied, 'I like
it fine. It looks just like the airport back

As to controversial topics, some say
that when host and guest are of equal
status. each can take care of himself.
Others say it should be the guest who
introduces any issues. A criterion may
be: can tbis topic be discussed fully,
honestly, and mutually?
(A
student
who was reluctant to discuss his unstable
government and its sensitive officials
noted: "One is hesitant to disparage tbe
regime to which we must return.")
The National Association of Foreign
Student Advisers says: "In a hospitable
situation, there is real encounter between
persons of vastly different opinions in a
genuine dialogue. The real issue is ftow
one discusses an issue,"
Differences spice international friendships. And explaining things to an outsider may open your eyes to your own
situation and clarify your philosophy.
Sir Walter Scott wrote: "Breathes
a man with soul so dead. Who
never to himself has said. This is mv
own, My native land!" Talking about
there
one's country is entertaining, but selling
it too hard is being obnoxious.
Il there is a language difference: Speak
slowly and clearly, but not loudly. The
foreigner (like the blind) often is addressed as if the din would help him to
comprehend (and the blind to see). Repeat or elaborate, if necessary, but don't
labor.
The National Council for Community
Services to International Visitors advises
that escort-interpreters should be included in any invitations where it appears
there will be a language barrier or ex-
treme cultural difference between host
and visitor.
"If
he is not needed. he mav
well prefer to be excused. (You mav

"How reassuring it would be if mature
friends invited us to call if we needed
advice or other assistance," a student
said. "Not to hover over us, but just for
the security of their interest."
Students seeking employment some-
times experience difficulty in trying to
convince employers of their capabilities.
There are complications, like a foreigner
being able to drive a truck, but lacking
a license. Businessmen can be especially
helpful in such cases.

Men are valuable as guides, especially
for visitors from cultures in which women do not lead men around.
Occasional projects are appreciated.
A club can invite guests to send "voice
letters" home, for example.

your responsibility is great, your task is
pleasant, your rewards are boundless.

expression on his face as he tried to
muster all the sympatby he could for
his poor dear friend who stood before
him, a Rotarian.
I must mention here that to a great
extent my friend and I have identical
ways of life. Each of us reserves to
himself the rigbt to give full vent to
what he feels about things, personal or
otherwise, but neither of us ever tries
to convince the other of his own "right-

ment. It usually turned out that after
the meeting some Rotarian friends
would sit together and discuss the talk
given by the speaker that evening. I
found that my friend, after a little while,
would get involved and absorbed in the
discussion. Seminars and symposiums
are so much a part of the intellectual
world that they tend to become the first
infirmity of these noble minds. After
one such occasion we were walking
home when my friend remarked:

"Yes, not only the bespectacled

Another incident that I particularly
remember took place in my shop. I was
in my office when my friend came in.
He saw an envelope lying on the table
addressed
to the Rotary

"What on earth is this flscal business

amused.

I left them with that query. When
I joined them later, I was told that my
| friend had gathered all the information
regarding the humanitarian services being rendered by the Rotary dispensary
at a Gorakhpur village for which those
medicines were being purchased.
My friend is, among other things, a
bibliophile. He happened to be present
when the postman brought a packet of

of our Club toward The
Rotary Foundation. My friend is a true
internationalist and thinks of nationalism as a great menace of our times. He
was, therefore, quick to appreciate the
idea and the motives behind such a program as The Rotary Foundation.

"Are you taking up some course in

"No, these books are on familY Planning," I said and explained to him that

My Favorite Story
The director, producer, and backer of
a Broadway show were discussing matrimony one evening. The director insisted
that marriage was 60 percent work and
40 percent fun; the producer thought
75 percent work and 25 percent fun;
the backer said 90 percent work and 10
percent fun. The assistant stage manager then appeared at the door, and the
backer asked him. He replied, "Marriage is 100 percent fun and no work at
all." "How do you figure that?" asked
the producer. "Very simple. If there
was any work at all to it, you guys
would have me doing it."
