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.

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.

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.
