February 25, 2006 - Posted at 12:21 p.m. CST

LEAWOOD, Kan. (AP) _ The former finance director for a Kansas

City-based agency founded by President Dwight Eisenhower admits he

stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from the nonprofit organization.

David Schlotzhauer pleaded guilty in a federal court yesterday

to stealing more than one-hundred-forty-eight thousand dollars from

People to People International in a scheme prosecutors say went on

for more than two years.

Prosecutors say the Leawood man stole from the group's checking

account and charged items for himself on its credit card. They're

seeking a sentence of 18 to 24 months.

People to People promotes understanding, peace and friendship

through programs in 135 countries, ranging from youth camps to

efforts against land mines. The agency's president and CEO is the

former president's granddaughter Mary Jean Eisenhower.
