IB G BUSINESS Modern transportation ties together far-distant places. The railroads especially are responsible for shortening distances. To keep informed on this subject. lVlr. Sundermann's RAILRCAD SO- CIETY meets twice a month to discuss various phases of the development of that type of trans' portation. They show movies, conduct quizzes, or hold open discussions on current improvements or events of importance. Air travel will undoubt- edly play an important part in post-war travelling, but this group feels that the railroads will have an equally important role. llWlfN'l'lFlt A I ION tklpprr lefty Row I l XYliltc.umlw.

R lllargfnau Unnoticed and unpraised. the members of the SERVICE CLUB, under the able leadership of Mrs. Taxter, toil arduously for the common wel- fare of the school. The compensation for hours of clerical work done in the office is the satisfaction of lending a helping hand. Always courteous, efli' cient, and willing to serve, these students carry on the work behind the scenes. Their untiring efforts are aptly dehned by the name of their organiza- tion: The Service Club.

The world of business surrounds us on all sides: yet, it often proves bewildering to the inexperienced. Mrs. Stanitis's RETAILING CLUB endeavors to acquaint students with all the intricacies of the retailing system. and to show them the practical application of methods learned. The group discusses problems and solutions, and then visits stores and factories to watch the theories become actual practice. With practical expe- rience behind them these students will know how to cope with the problems of the business world. ll5lfN'l llilt'A'IilON M. fw.il1.ilunx li l'm1li M Pasture. Mrs. St XV.

When the youth of today assume their place in the postwar world, they also assume the responsibility of remodeling it. This remodeling will place before them many problems that will put their competence to the acid test. There will be situa- tions that will need the expert treatment of an ambitious, far- sighted and reconstruction-educated youth. When we think of preparing youth for this monstrous task. we think of means of shaping their hands so that they, in turn, can better shape the world. The fate of civilization rests with these hands. The actions not only of statesmen and business- men, but of all the people, will lay the foundations of this ciivil- ization. If the hands are skilful, the foundations will be strong, and capable of withstanding a good many storms. If not, we'll face more wars and more depressions. Compared with matters so important as this, sports may appear insignificant and unrelated. However, they can serve not only as an engaging pastime for millions of Americans, both young and old, but also as a means of inculcating some valuable character traits in the youth of the nation. For when youth are meeting opponents and when they are learning the need for teamwork and the importance of the individual in sports activities, they are being faced with many of those ele- ments that will try them later on in life. Sports emphasize the kind of conduct that calls for cooperation, consideration of the other fellow, and self-reliance, qualities which later will stand youth in good stead. . We know that experience is a good teacher. and this, simply speaking, is precisely the role sports can play in reconstructing the postwar world. They can serve as a proving ground for a youth whose hands will shape the future of the world for the generations of tomorrow. 76
