Each participant wore a badge advertising his effort and kept a jour- nal in which he recorded his activi- ties and feelings concerning the week-long project. The project was kicked off with a school-wide assem- bly which included a mock funeral for a television set. The set was draped in black, and a number of students and teachers dressed in black read eulogies for the televi- sion. Jo Long, a first-grade teacher at the Frankford school who organized the event, said, "We like to try differ- ent things here. At first the kids were really 'in shock' and had some trouble adjusting to being without tell, vision. But we put it to them as a challenge, and they quickly adapted., rye heard a lot of parents say they'd like to continue this--they say they got +a lot more done around the house."

Overnight stops are planned in White Sulphur Springs and Rainelte. The group will travel U. S. 60 through the county. Goldy Norton, deputy executive chairman of the International Korean War Veterans Memorial Committee in Los Angeles, said it is difficult to determine how many bicyclists will take part in the event. Participants may join the trip at any point on the itinerary, which will roughly follow the thirty-eighth parallel of latitude (on which the border of North and South Korea lies) throughout the trip across America. The trip will con- clude June 24 in San Pedro, Califor- nia. The organization's purpose is to raise funds and increase public awareness for the $5 million Interna- tional Korean War Veterans Memo- rial to be built in San Pedro. Target date for completion of the monu- ment, contingent on sufficient dona- tions, is November 1991, according to Mr Norton. "The memorial will sa- lute the men and women from 22 nations who served and died under the United Nations banner to pre- serve freedom in South Korea," ac- cording to a press release from the veterans' organization. ]he tour begins May 7 in Wash- tngton, D. C., with overnight stops the first three days in Winchester, Harrisonburg, and Lexington, Vir- ginia. The group is expected to ar- rive in White Sulphur Springs the af- ternoon of May 10 and spend the remainder of the day talking to re,sL-. dents and inviting them to make pledges based on the miles covered by the riders. A bronze model of the memcria! will be transpcrted alcng the route and will be displayed at each overnight stop on the trip. Participants will travel to Rainelle May 11 and spend the night there. Rainelle will also be an overnight stop May 24 of motorcyclists from the Pew (Prisoners of War) Free- dom Foundation in their cross-coun- try trip from San Diego to Washing- ton. Mr Norton said his Korean vet- eran participants are looking forward to visiting numerous small towns along their way. "We're very enthusi- astic about the potential of fund-rais- ing because we're going to have to avoid the interstate, making it nec- essary for us to go through many small towns. Many veterans groups have found that small-town folks get a lot more excited about such events than those in large cities." Two of the bicyclists, Rik Yoshi- zawa and Gordon Greene, have pledged to make the entire 3,000- mile trip. Mr Yoshizawa is from Car- son, California, and was a member of the Army's Twenty-fourth Infantry Division, the first division to see ac- tion in Korea. He is an American of Japanese descent. During World War II he and "his family were con- fined in a re-location camp in Man- zanar, California. After his discharge from the Army, Mr Yos hizawa worked as a technical illustrator and later spent several years as a ship- yard machinist for the Navy. He is now retired. Mr Greene, from Lincoln, Ne- braska, served in Korea in the First Marine Division as a rifleman, pla- toon runner, and fire team leader. Following his discharge from the Marines he taught elementary school and is now a professor of education at the University of Ne- braska. The idea of the cross-coun- try bicycle trip was originated by Mr Greene. ENRICH FAILS! w..
