r r r r u JEFFERSON REPORTER, Thursday, April 2, 137- -- Lcnd Uco Consultant ' hi miji ; 111 'a Perils Soferas BY RAMONA MARSH accustomed to. Vettiner is 61 years old. "After 23 years of this and 16 years of school teaching there has been a lot of decision making. I wanted to let somebody else do it for awhile and let me enjoy some of the fruits of the labor," he said, adding that, "Of course, I didn't want to get fired first. I wanted to resign on my own." His new job as consultant will let him do what he had planned all along, he believes. Vettiner said that his duties, as described in his contract, Charlie Vettiner, who had director of the been Metropolitan Parks and Recreation Board for 23 years prior to his firing last August 4 by then Mayor Kenneth Schmied and County Judge E. P. Sawyer for alleged fiscal irresponsibility, returned to the parks department this week. Vettiner was Friday by the parks board as a consultant after recommendation by present Mayor Frank Burke and County Judge Todd Hollenbach. His new job, which will pay $15,600 annually, will make him responsible for seeing to it that 20 years from now Louisville area people will have adequate park space for their needs. He will also be responsible for obtaining all possible federal funds for acquisition of parkland. Vettiner, who began work from a Central Park office Friday after the board voted and announced its decision, said that he feels "very good about the way things have worked include "consultation, planning, reporting and advising in the field of parks and for purposes of recreation supplementing and aiding the regularly employed staff." Vettiner was proposed for the position by Carl Bradley, y former department head for the state highway system who succeeded Vettiner as parks chief. Bradley said on Monday that he was "delighted he (Vettiner) is here. I told the mayor and the judge I thought we could not afford to waste any assets, whether physical, fiscal, human or any other kind, and certainly not the human. "I thought the best human asset in the field of recreation and parks that we have in the nation is here and since he's right here I thought we ought to avail ourselves of the asset," continued Bradley. Bradley explained that Vettiner will "help in all phases as a consultant" and that "right now he is working on land utilization." .. right-of-wa- out."

"We wanted to take the message to the people," said the Reverend Harvard, "and theologically it makes good sense." A temporary wooden stage was constructed in the midst of the Mall's Easter traffic. Three times during the evening (at 7, 7:30, and 8 p.m.) the actor, singers and dancers ascended the stage and presented a virtually unrehearsed free-fordramatic interpretation of the crucifixion. The Mall's Easter shoppers were curious and fascinated, and the crowd of onlookers swelled.
