THIRTY MINUTES {JOCKEY KAREN ROGERS} (TV)

Summary

One in this series of programs devoted to the interests and concerns of young people. In this program, the first story covered is a look at the Klan Youth Corps, a division of the Ku Klux Klan. In Alabama, Christopher Glenn examines how 10 to 17-year-olds are recruited, trained, and indoctrinated (including training in the use of weapons) in an effort to groom them for eventual adult membership in the Klan. Includes interviews with young people for and against the Klan, whites and blacks. The next segment profiles Karen Rogers, age 17, the leading female jockey in America. The program concludes with viewer response to a previous report on the possible return of the draft. Includes commercials.
