Seattle University student group plans summer project in rural Mexican village... Volunteers will continue com- munity development work begun last summer by Amigos Anonymous students from California. A group of students at Seattle University has unusual summer plans. The group, num- bering 15 at present, is going to Mexico to do Peace Corps-type community development work in a rural village. The S.U. project is affiliated with Amigos Anonymous, begun last year at the Univer- sity of California at Berkeley, under the national Conference of Inter-American Student Projects. The University of Washington also has an Amigos unit. Last year, the California volunteers spent the summer at Apaseo El GrsMe, a small Mexican village where they set up a library for the children of the town with books donated by individuals and schools in the Northern California area. They also began a school and established a dispensary, providing supplies and medi- cines for both, and trained the villagers to continue the work when the summer ended. All three projects are still in operation. Seattle University's student group now is going through an intensive training program, including instruction in Spanish, taught by two S.U. graduates. The members are required to eat dinner together daily, and during the meal, no English is allowed. They also are studying the history and culture of Mexico, in addition to raising all necessary funds for materials, transporta- tion and the costs of maintaining the group during the summer. Leading the project are Jerry Harnish, a sophomore from St. Patrick Parish, Tacoma, project director, and Annie Cud- man, junior from Los Angeles, chairman of the training pro- gram. Other committee chairmen are Janet Link, freshman from St. George Parish, Seattle, publicity; John ,1". Richmond, junior from St. Leo Parish, Tacoma, research: Winnie Wynhausen, junior from Santa Monica, Calif., public relations; Bruce A. Weber, junior from Los Altos, Calif., on-campus fund-raising, and Anne Collier, senior from Mt. Virgin Parish, Seattle, supplies. Others from the Archdiocese engaged in the project are Peggy Ryan, junior from St. Margaret Parish, and Mimi Bar- beris, senior from St. Anne Parish, both Seattle; Judy Homer, senior from Blessed Sacrament Parish, Grandview; Michaeleen Rotchford, freshman from St. Michael Parish, Olympia; Sue McMachon, sophomore from St. Francis if Assisi Parish, Sea- burst. Other volunteers are P. . Andrews, junior from Pacific Palisades, Calif.; Tad Prinster, sophomore from Gram Juno- tion, Colo.; and Gall Fuller, junior from Portland.
