Volume 50 Number 30 August 21, 1964

This IFYE has just finished an experience that he shall never forget. Place yourself in this atmosphere and you may know how I felt when I first arrived in Teresin, near Warsaw, to participate in an International Youth Meeting. Here were gathered youth from eighteen nations of Europe all representing socialist or communist youth organizations in their various countries. "What am I doing here," came to my mind more than once during that first afternoon beside the pool. I was never so relieved in my life when I was a familiar face at supper that night. It was June Cunningham from Minnesota a fellow I F Y E to Poland. We were both just a little worried about what the next ten days held in store for us, but this worrying was needless. We found the other delegates very friendly and enjoyed our stay greatly. What I enjoyed most was the free time when you would gather around a coffee table and just talk. Topics discussed always included politics, economics, and world peace. This being the week of the Republican Convention in San Francisco, Barry Goldwater and his foreign policy was discussed widely. In the end, however, all discussion boiled down to a philosophy of life and a belief or disbelief in religion, which made further discussion fruitless. I shall never forget the closing words of a young Pole, "You believe in a unseen, unproved God, but I prefer to live for man." Toward the end of the conference I was trying to evaluate the impact we had made on the group, but met with little success. My answer came a few hours later when a member of the Russian delegate told me, "Dick, you and June have restored my faith in the youth of America. You came to this conference seeking answers and not with the attitude hat you know all the answers."
