This past week we had another visit from the people involved with the Special Olympics and the Kennedy Foundation which sponsor and are the driving force behind the games. AICF is involved through our "Outreach" Program and Publishing is producing the souvenir grames program which is going to be a very fine production. The Kennedy Foundation people have been very impressed with us as individuals and with our facilities here in Pasadena. They were even more impressed that during our darkest hours during the struggle with the State of California that we still had time for them.

The Quest advertising staff in New York sold about $40,000 worth of advertising space for the program and at the special dinner recently Mrs. Ethel Kennedy was making very complimentary remarks about Quest and the Ambassador Foundation to Phil DuVal, our advertising director.

The Special Olympics is for mentally retarded children 8 years of age and older. These young people love the chance to show what they can do — in fact the games in past years have changed the life of many of the participants.
