THE JACKSON PROGRESS- ARGUS, JACKSON, GEORGIA
At Boys’ Estate
Dr. R. H. Pinckney, chairman in
Butts county for Boys’ Estate at
Brunswick, in directing attention to
the current campaign for funds,
quotes from a recent column in the
Atlanta Journal by Ernest Rogers
as to the effective work being done
at the institution. Rogers in an inter
view with Ardell Nation, guiding
spirit at Boys’ Estate, says:
And to build boys, Mr. Nation and
his associates have found that once
the youngsters are fired with an en
thusiasm for rehabilitation that they
can do much of the building them-
selves. And that is the theory on
which Boys’ Estate operates. It is
a self-governed community with its
own mayor, chief of police, judges,,
etc. Any infraction of the rules is air
ed in open court conducted by the
“And the encouraging thing," says
Mr. Nation, “is that impartial justice
is meted out. Every one is given a
The citizens of Boys’ Estate cover
an age span of from 8 to 18. The
average is 13. All of them are Geor
gians. On arrival at Boys Estate they
are told to stay only if they want to.
They want to.
Mr. Nation, in discussing Boys’
Estate, says it is not a question of
whether the institution will survive
but how fast it will grow. He feels
that 1952 may be the most fruitful
year since ttie beginning. Plans call
for opening a pountry farm, install
ation of a laundry system, building a
city hall and completion of the Ma
But to do all of this takes money.
And that is why, duriftg February,
the friends of Boys’ Estate are con
ducting a campaign for funds. They
are appealing to the generosity of
those who believe in giving young
sters a real chance in life.
So, when the appeal for Boys’
Estate is put squarely up to you may
I suggest that you recall the words
of a radio performer who enunciated
Take the wheel to get the feel of this amazing performer!
You have to take the wheel of a "Dual-Range* Pontiac
yourself before you can completely enjoy the thrill of
having, at your finger-tips, two entirely different types
of performance: quick, easy acceleration for traffic—
or economical, almost silent cruising for the open road.
When you do, you’ll say, “This is it!”—for never before
has such spectacular performance been combined with
such remarkable economy. Come in today—experience
the most exciting driving in all the world.
