Visiting the museum first, the two groups learned much of the hardships of early farm life in America, seeing firsthand their tools and means of livelihood. The Hall of Fame presented the boys and girls with a panoramic view of baseball past and present in the form of pictures, plaques and relics. Those who always follow the sport stood in awe of such attractions as the uniforms and equipment of Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig, and the last balls pitched in every no-hit game.
The last to leave camp where the freshman and sophomore boys' crews, and the junior girls, with a freshman going to Cimarron City and the others to West Point and Bear Mountain. At Cimarron City the campers saw the old West come to life just outside Monticello; at the Point, they encountered the school which is the foundation of military professionalism in this country, and saw in the buildings and grounds the pride and stature that has come to be associated with the academy.
Ranger thus experienced memorable times no matter where its campers went--from the Thousand Islands to Cooperstown to Gettysburg. In all the places visited, there were things to see and do which could not help but leave the travelers more enriched and informed then when they had first arrived.

THE WAR OF THE GROUPS
or
THE PRICE OF TALENT
by Ronnie Berkowitz & Nanci Janoff

This year, Camp Ranger has had talent among its counselors and campers.
The Moons, formed by six male counselors, sang two songs which would over well. But the same night six girls got the idea to form a singing group named the Starlites. Then came the competition.
The next Saturday, at the Talent Show, the Starlites were born. They sank two songs which were like by both camps . . . and the Moons!
Many groups have been started: the Suns, Half Moons, and Quarter Moons. There has been a lot of competition among the groups, but they all have had fun doing it.
