Speakers on the program, arranged by Barney Medintz, boys’ worker at the Community Center, included A. L. Myers Sr., a member of the board of directors and local Boy Scout commissioner; Al Loeb, former Georgia Tech football star, chairman of the institution’s athletic program; Rabbi Harry H. Epstein, and David Gershon, leader in youth activities.
