An Open Letter To Parents . . . . .
From Our Principal
This is written as an open letter to you in an effort to familiarize you briefly
with our educational mission. Public schools and education have come a
long way from the old concept that they exist merely to impart knowledge to
boys and girls who would soak it up in sponge-iike fashion. The schools of
today are as different in methods and outlook from those of a hundred years
ago as the modem automobile is different from the old horse and buggy. They
have grown in stature and in wisdom.
Enqiewood High School shares with other secondary schools in Chicago
and throughout the United States the responsibility for developing all-around
well-baianced personality in the boys and girls who come here. It is not e-
nough to purvey knowledge of subject matter, because experience has taught
us that a 'iiearried" man may be an unpleasant one, unable to get along With
his feiiow-meri. He may have "swallowed the dictionary" but still be a poor
example of American citizenship. He may be academically sound, but morally
or physically sick. For these reasons the public schools have enlarged their
horizons. Not only do they still present subject matter, but they have a re-
medial attitude toward the slow learner which is far more humanitarian than
the old "off with his head" policy which used to be the vogue in public school
circles. More children are taught something today than ever before in contrast
to the old quueeze-out" system under which a few of the best mentalities were
taught to the exclusion of the lesser scholars. This requires patience, under-
standing, and better-trained teachers, as well as new-type facilities and mate-
rials of instruction.
However, this is not considered enough. Iust as "man does not live by
bread aloneX' so he cannot become a weil-balariced personality by study
alone. Because he must live in a world with other people, he must learn to
get along with other people, and in this learning, he must develop traits of
character and personality which are socially desirable. Hence, we promote
and. encourage clubs, teams, and socializing activities such as assemblies,
proms, dances, athletics, dramatics, and special interest groups. Faculty spon-
sorship is provided to the end that adult guidance and encouragement may
develop all the latent traits of good citizenship in our boys and girls! loyalty,
kindness, control of emotions, perseverance, the ability to listen, leadership,
a sense of belonging, appreciation of other people, a basic honesty, patriotism,
habitual good nature, good taste, and respect for work.
It is a large order, and we recognize that it is not always achieved, but it is
our vision. Civilization is a race between education and catastrophe, and
without vision, the people perish.

Three To Whom We Owe So Much . . .
tln appreciation of their outstanding service and accomplishments as educators and educational
administrators, the present issue of the PURPLE AND WHITE has been gratefully dedicated to Dr.
Benjamin C. Willis, our General Superintendent of Schools; Dr. Thaddeus I. Lubera, our Assistant
Superintendent in Charge of Secondary Education: and Dr. James H. Smith, out District Superin-
tendent. Following are sketches of the three distinguished leaders and their careerseThe EditorsJ
Dr. Benjamin C. Willis
There was something finer than mere courtesy, something simpler yet deep-
er than diplomacy m the welcome Dr. Benjamin C Willis, our General Superv
intendent of Schools! gave a delegation of students who interviewed him for
the PURPLE AND WHITE on November 16, 1954. There was something warmer
in it than just good public relations.
The natural heartmess of the man along with his ability to project himself
intuitively into the mind of a teenager and see the high school students world
through the eyes of a high school student somehow shone forth in the glow of
his smile and was quickly conveyed through the very way he opened his
office door and shook hands with his visitors.
Instantaneousiy, and without visible effort, he gave the Engiewood repree
sentatives a feeling oi being with an undeistanding friend. This was brought
about not so much by what he said or did as by the kind of person that he
is. The same elusive son'iethiha pervaded the atmosphere throughout the half!

He began teaching, he said, with the idea of earning some money and
getting some work experience. His primary ambition then was to become o
lawyer, and he wors studying low with that end in view. But his second year
of teaching proved so enjoyable he decided to remain permanently in the
field of education.
His greatest satisfaction professionally has come from the accomplishments
of his former students and of teachers who have worked under his direction.
In this connection he spoke of c: mom! formerly associated with him as 0

DR. THADDEUS J. LUBERA
Should you happen to see a stocky man about five feet nine with
a massive head and rather Wavy brown hair in a hlgh school core
ridor anywhere in our great city, dont be surprtsed If someone says,
"There goes Dr. Lubera. You know Thaddeus I. Lubera',, our As-
sistant Superintendent in Charge of Secondary Educatlon.
You'll be struck by the benign expression of his full face and the
springy vigor of his walk, talk, and whole personallty: You should
be too; for your welfare is much in his mind day and night.
He is vitally interested in you w whether you be a student or a
teacher. If you talk with him individually or hear h1m speak in pub-
lic, however briefly, you'll quickly sense that he thinks, feels,
dreams, hopes, plans during Virtually all his waking hours in terms
related to the high schools and junior colleges of our vast metropolis.
Specially close to his heart are the refining phases of education e
those which mold character. Fittingiy thus one of his favorite words
His service in the Chicago public school system covers more than
three decades. He has taught in elementary schooi and in high
school. He has been an assistant principal in high school, an elemen-
tary school principal, an evening school principal, a high school
principal, and a district superintendent. In addition he has been an
instructor in the Department of Education at De Paul University.
What better preparation could he have had for his present influen-
Moreover, his own higher education was equally comprehensive.
A graduate of the Chicago Teachers College, he attended three other
seats of learning also and received a degree from each of them: a
BA. from Lewis Institute, an MA. from De Paul University, and a
PhD. from the University of Chicago.
High school students and high school teachers couldn't have a
better friend than Thaddeus I. Lubera. Ever and always he is on the
lookout for means of helping them make their various activities
DR. JAMES H. SMITH
A man who uses words sparingly, Dr. James H. Smith, our District
Superintendent, makes each one count. He is an engineer and a
scientist. Fittingly thus he utilizes language in the manner of a tech-
nician working with a precision instrument. At the same time, how-
ever, he is unaffectedly human and has a sunny sense of humor.
Dr. Smith's "prep" school education began in Canada and was
completed at Tiiden Technical High School in Chicago. After grad-
uating from Tiiden he went to the University of Illinois, where he took
a BS. degree in engineering. Following this he attended the Univer-
sity of Chicago, taking an MA. there, and then Loyola University,
where he received the degree of Doctor of Education. Subsequently
Bradley University awarded him a Doctor of Science degree.
He has taught at an elementary school, at Fenger High School,
and in the graduate school of Loyola University. He has been prin-
cipal of Sherwood Elementary School, of Fenger High School, and
of Lane Technical High School.
We at Engiewood are fortunate, indeed, that such a careful man
of deeds is at the helm of our district tDistrict Fivei. To him we are
much indebted for the improvements we qet-particularly in the
way of new facilities and equipment. He always sees to it that the
schools in his district receive their due share of good and useful
things. This is in keeping with his conviction that high school stue
dents should get the fullest possible instruction an attitude for which
he is widely known and highly respected.

Perhaps you wish to become a physician, perhaps
a nurse. Or maybe you look forward toward a career
as a beautician or a teacher, a social worker or a
secretary, an engineer or an accountant, a lawyer or
a merchant. The list of possible vocational aspirations
could be extended over pages.
But whatever occupation or profession you choose:
whether you become a farmer or a banker; whether
you amass a fortune or manage only to make a mod-
est livelihood; whether you remain an obscure John
or Mary Doe or become President of the United States
o-you'll be a man or woman, a citizen, and most likely
not only a husband or wife but also a father or mother.
Regardless, too, of whether your life work is to be a
humble factory job or the kind that will bring you
worldwide fame, you'll have lifelong opportunities to
see the sun rise and set in breath-taking splendor and
the stars bejewel the sky with sublime artistry, you'll
be a witness to the magic and mystery which the sea-
sons cast over the open country and to the ever-shiftinq
paqeantry of day and night in teeming cities.
You'll Have to Deal With People
Whether you turn out to be a tailor, a bookkeeper, a
scientist, or writer you'll have to deal with people;
you'll make friends and enemies; you'll experience
frustrations and tragedies, Victories and defeats; you'll
have to cope with the problems of youth and adult-
hood, middle age and old age.
Whatever your occupation may be, the likelihood is
you'll have to make decisions as to Where and When
to travel, what books to read, plays to see, music to

This brings to mind the controversy which has kept
the rafters ringing since before the Flood. It has to do
wilth whether the practical or the theoretical should be
stressed in education, whether the function of schools
and colleges is mainly to develop the mind or to pre-
pare young people directly for the specific demands
of adult life.
Common sense, it would seem, could take the thun-
der out of this argument. Common sense suggests that
a balance should be maintained between the two: the
practical and the theoretical, the inculcation of ideas
and training for specific tasks.

Hope To Stimulate Interest
Much of this is obvious, but much of it also is dis-
regarded. It is hoped that making the development of
the well-balanced personality the theme of the 1955
issue of the PURPLE AND WHITE will induce students
and teachers to think about this aspect of a high school
education. Thus they will be prompted to pay more
attention to it. The idea of developing the well-
balanced personality is certainly not new. Philoso-
phers and educators have been aware of its import-
ance for more than two thousand years. But at no
time has the need for well-balanced personalities been
as urgent as at present.
Immediately ahead of us lies a whole new range of
possibilities for the betterment and enrichment of hu-
man life. Likewise, we are confronted with a whole
new range of horrifying possibilities for destruction and
the spread of destructive ideas.
The development of well-balanced personalities is of
Oh! The magic of the artist's brush- inestimable importance in this connection. In a sense
the whole future of mankind depends upon it.

On the other hand a normal person is not content
with just being a task-performing robot. A normal per-
son has other interests, desires, objectivesepotentially
a considerable variety of them. This is becoming in-
creasingly evident and increasingly important as work-
ing hours are progressively shortened and leisure

MY FUTURE CHICAGO
By Mark Upchurch
IThe essay which follows was awarded first prize of $300.00 in U. S. Savings Bonds in a city.
wide contest among high school students. This contest was cohducted by the New York Life
Insurance Company, developer of the Lake Meadows Housing Protest and Shopping Center. That
it was written by Mark Upchurch, a member of Englewood's graduating class of June. 1955, makes
us exceedingly proud.eThe EditorsJ
Chicago is my city. I have lived here all my life. I am very proud of it and
the contributions and advancements it has given to the civilized world. There
is still a whole world of advancement ahead for Chicago in this oncoming
atomic age. What advancements wiII Chicago have made perhaps five cen-
turies from now? I have given this matter serious thought and here are some
of my views as to how I would like to see Chicago designed in the future.
When I take my imaginary visit to Chicago of 2454 AD. I shall be surprised
to find no streets, highways, roads or alleys of any sort. What became of
them? I shall discover that Chicago's transportation system had gone under-
ground. The roadway system was converted into a new safe remotely con-
trolled subway for transportation vehicles. This subway I shall find is con-
stantly lighted by atomic energy and there are convenient entrances from
every City street.
Other reVqutionary changes in the Chicago of the future, CIS I Visualize it,
will be the elimination of telephone wiring and the sewerage system. The tele-
phone wires will be replaced by an electronic wireless system of telephone
communication. An irrigation arrangement employing a unique canal system
will utilize the city's rainwater to irrigate all of its lawns and gardens. Any
excess water will be quickly vaporized by atomic powered vents.
Smoke producing factories will be eliminated by machinery and production
controlled by smokeless atomic energy. Cleaner, fresher air and c1 greater
margin of health will be enjoyed by OH.
Street lights will be unnecessary because of luminous sidewalks. These
sidewalks will be made of a revolutionary plastic product Which will be very
easy on the feet and Iong testing. In addition sidewalks located in busy shop-
ping districts will be movable to aid shoppers.
The most marvelous advancements made by the future Chicago will be in
connection with the buildings themselves. New and amazing features like
automatic buiIdinq cleaners, universal escalator service, mobile hallways,
fuel abolishing electronic heating and air conditioning, unbreakable, trans-
parent, fibre glass walls, and even mechanical robots will be present in busi-
ness and residental buildings of the future. Lawns and trees will flourish over
the entire city. Beautiful fountains will be found on every street corner of the
Extensive housing projects will add beautiful acres to our city and eliminate
the problems of slums. The city will expand and comfortable living quarters
will be acquired by everyone.
Our que front will have become c1 receiving end for tourists and trade from
all over the world, Beautiful public parks Will add much culture and beauty
to the city. Hard working, ambitious, and far-Visioned citizens can make such
0: dream City cm actuality for our future generations.

Foreign Language Assembly A
High-Light Of Fall Semester
One of the memorable school events of the 1954 Fall Semester was the For-
eign Language Assembly held on October 27. The Latin, Spanish, and French
departments participated. Classes taught by Mrs. Harris, Mr. Gordy, Miss
Keating, Miss Holmes, and Miss Hutfcxker were represented. The program
was delightfully effective and entertaining.
An ancient Roman wedding ceremony was the opening scene. Other scenes
included the Pledge to the Flag in Spanish, by Etta Price; counting in Spanish,
by Frances Samuels; the singing of La Cucuracha in Spanish, by Miss
Keating's Spanish 4 class; and impressions of La Raspe, the Mexican Hat
Dance, by the Spanish Club e under the direction of Miss Holmes.
Members of the French 3 class told Why they study that language. The
French 5 and 6 Classes sang La Seine. a song dedicated to the Seine River -
which flows through Paris .. and Dites Moi Pourquoi from "South Pacific."

England . . .
Face To Face
By Alba Biagini
During the 1953-54 school year Miss Biagini, of our
Biology Department, taught at the University of London
Institute of Education. Thus she exchanged places with
Miss Butler. who for two terms took over Miss Biagini's
classes at Englewood. It is fitting. therefore, that. having
published Miss Butler's stirring impressions of America
last year, the PURPLE AND WHITE should this year
carry Miss Biaqini's lively impressions of EnglandeThe
The purpose of the exchange of teachers
internationally is to provide opportunities for
observing people in countries other than one's
own while they're at work and play. It is
hoped that this will foster better understanding
among nations. Vfith that in mind the United
States Government sent one hundred American
teachers to EngIand, Ireland, and Scotland as
unofficial ambassadors of good will to take
over for one year the positions left by that
number of British teachers who came to A-
merica in exactly the same capacity to teach
tor the same length of time.
What a tremendous experience it was for
me to be assigned in London for a whole
school year as one of the fortunate hundred.
As a result this fabulous old City and the glori-
ous English countryside have found a perma-
nent lodging pIace in my mind and heart
which time will never be able to wear away.
Big Ben has left an oft-recurring echo in my
consciousness, and the River Thames stiII tIows
vividly before my mind's eye.
A high school course in Eninsh Iiterature
had given me a poetic qumpse of "merrie
oIde England" through the qux; rind a bit of
English history. My childhood rrmdjrw had in;
troduced me to Robin Hood, The Knights of
the Round Table, and a wide range of lords
and ladies; but all this had not prepared me
for the overwhelming beauty of the tiny land,
for the sights and sounds in city and country,
town and hamIet, tor the magnificent structures
left by generations past. Above all I Was
greatly surprised by the warm friendship and
generous hospitality shown me by the Enghsh
people, whom we misiabel as reserved, aus-
tere and haughty. I am firmly convinced that
Americans know IittIe or nothing about the
British except that we fought to tree ourselves
from dominance by their government in 1776-83
and that their smaII island homeland once
commanded a world empire.
THE BATTLE OF ACCENTS
We think of British accents. It surprised me
to find I had an American accent 777 about
which I was teased constantly, but not without
retort. We think of England as the land of high
teas and crumpets. What about our hot dogs
and cokes? By the way I introduced to my
English friends the sharp delights of Wiener
roastsi We think of the London fog, and III
admit I was heartily disappointed because
I managed to glimpse onIy a few respectable
pea-soupers all winter!
I expected pageantry linked with the 01d
traditions, and happily I found it. I saw pages
as it were lifted right out of King Arthur's Court,
Ivanhoe. Rob Roy, and history books, much to
my delight and that of other Americans. We
lined the streets to view these coiortut cere-
monies and traditional spectacles, in which
present-day knights and royaIty partic1pated.
Understanding Britishers stepped aside to let
American visitors wriggIe up to the front for a
I saw patient and courageous people stow-
ly but surely putting themselves up, after tour-
teen years of meat rationing and thirteen years
of butter ratioinq, and clearing away the last
remnants of devastation left by World War II.
I saw a courteous people 7 7 not merer polite,
but genuinely considerate with an extreme
respect for the older generation, for their lead-
ers in government tregardtess ot partyi, and for
their Royal Family, who set the pattern of
gentleness and dignity.
TAKE TIME TO LOOK A THING OVER
The British are said to move at a slower
pace than Americans. I think this is true but it
stems from a distrust of all extremes as well
as a reluctance to change just for the sake
of changing. They are more apt to take their
time looking a thing over and digesting it
thoroughly, discarding that which is of no use
and retaining that which has some value. They
are determined and unshakeabie when it
comes to basic principles. Their spirit of free-
dom matches their love of learning and doing

ENGLAND FACE TO FACE
Continued from Page 24l
for arts sake rather than for personal reward.
We know next to nothing about the unique
British geography and exquisite ccountryside,
which is as varied and picturesque as our own
only on a smaller scale. tBigness doesn't neces-
sarily indicate betterness.l How wonderful are
the rolling hills of southern England, the miles
of seashore and cl;tt formations, the desolate
and haunting moors, the ri:h river valleys that
nourish crops and orchards or provide pastur-
age for the dairy industry.
Intensive farming has carved up all the
available land into fields divided by hedge-
rows neatly trimmed, or by miles of stone
fences beautifully kept. This gives the land a
distinctive combed and brushed look. The
quaint and very old inns found in the tiny
hamlets or towns or scattered along the roads
are delightful reminders of days gone by. The
houses themselves are masterpieces of stone
masonry and intricate patterns. You find some-
thing different in every county. Each county
offers an individual appearance, a distinct
language inflection, its own folk lore, special
cookery, and memorable showplaces to which
any inhabitant will guide you with a fierce
In Yorkshire you find the people drop their
h's and adore Yorkshire Pudding and Parkin.
In Devorshire folks fight off the Devonshire
Pixies while making their untorgettably deli-
cious Devonshire cream. So it goes from county
THE POETS DIDN'T EXAGGERATE
The mountains of Wales and the Scottish
Highlands are as rough and exciting as the
Lake District is soothing and breath-taking. The
Iake District, by the way, looks exactly as
Wordsworth and Shelley saw it in their
poetry. If variety is the spice of life then the
British have it in good measure. They are
enthusiastic hikers, cyclists, and motorists.
They travel all over their country. The most
remote places can be reached in a matter of
hours, or at the most a day or so. The young
People spend all their holidays hostelinq.
Miss Butler, my opposite number texchangel,
came to America to see the technical advances
made by a nation much larger and younger
than her own. She found a scene quite un-
' uwyuw J. r .- '
known to most of her own people, for, to match
the American ignorance in regard to Great
Britain, there is an equal British ignorance con-
cerning American lite. She found giant build-
ings, broad highways, superstructures, etc.
I, on the other hand, found the old world
tradition from which America took her founda-
tions and upon which she built the innovations
necessary for her own unique development.
I saw the independent shopkeeper still taking
great pains with his wares, the narrow streets
winding in and out and roundabout. London,
Edinburgh, Dublin and Glasgow are far from
old worldish with regard to merchandise. Yet
even in these large cities one can find rem-
nants of former days in side streets, in some
shops, and in certain whole districts. All of
this delights the English, the Irish, and the
Scotch as well as the Americans. One would
have to be very superficial not to enjoy these
remainders and reminders of the past.
Of secondary importance is the question:
Which is better or worse? The fascinating
"differences" are appealing, regardless of
whether one would or would not like them as
part of one's permanent environment. My year
abroad taught me above all that it isn't im-
portant to judge whether something is better
or worse than its counterpart in America. What
is important is to realize that it IS different. and
to attempt to understand and appreciate the
reasons why it is different. It is a mistake to
compare too closely. It all hinges on the values,
standards, and ideals of a people; and this is
determined to a large extent by cultural back-
ground and heritage.
An American is an American because of
these factors. So is an Englishman. We must
understand each other better and be willing
to learn from one another those things which
will fit into our own modes and methods.
Others should be rejected without condem-
nation or arrogance. It goes without saying
that this give and take should operate in both
directions across the ocean.
Ignorance gives rise to misconceptions and
false notions. So I'm going back to visit Ye
Olde England again, as soon as I can, to learn
a bit more. Want to come along? It's jolly good

Cross-Country Champs Once Again
Our track team 1Qst year continued its dom-
inance of the cross-country field by winning
the city Championship for the fourth time in five
years. Our 1954 low score of 28 points has been
bettered on1y once in the twenty-seven year
history of the Chicago Championship meet, and
then by the great Englewood team of 1951
which set the record 10W score of 21 points.
Our team was in 1954 again undefeated in
City competition, losing only in the state Cham-
pionship meet at Urbana, Illinois, where our
boys finished in eleventh p10ce. Eng1ewood also
won the 1954 Bloom Township invitationo1 meet,
detecting strong teams from Oak Park, LG
Grange, Ioliet, Dunbar and Du Sable. In addi-
tion we were victorious in seven dual meets,
concluding the season with on easy victory in
$52391 Wilma .,tmtmm:bwfftsif arv'j? '
the Sun-Times invitationa1 meet on November
13, with a record 10w of 19 points. Our leading
scorers were Percy Brown, Leonard Wi11ic1mson,
Eugene Fountaine, Robert Johnson, Wi11c1rd
Stewart, Theodore Saunders, E11iott McNea1,
tomes Ash1ey, Delano Martin, Astor Jones,
Claude Brown, and John Hoskins.
1n indoor and outdoor track competition in
the spring of 1955 our contenders have included
L. V. Morrow, in the high hurd1es, pole V0u1t
and the high jump; Leonard Wi11iamson cmd
Astor tones in the 440 race; and W111CITC1 Stew-
art in the mile run; Reginald tones, Oscar Can-

Our Team Improves
Coach Yamadq had in 1954 few veterans
from the previous year's team to build around,
but results achieved were better than the year
before. Our gridiron huskies won cx game, tied
in two, and lost three.
We opened the season by dropping the
HLittle Brown Shield" contest to Hyde Park 19
to 14. Next we lost to the sectioncd champs,
Du Sable, by the score of 28 to 0. From then on
our boys began to C1ick, whipping Farragut 20
to 7, tying Bowen 19 to 19, losing to Parker 6 to
0, and tying Harper 7 to 7. Or1cmdo Denson, left
halfback; Cicero Brooksl center; and George
Miles, captain and right end, received honor-
able mention by sports writers in their sec-
tional and city-wide selections.
The following boys received footba11 1etters
for the 1954 season : David Bates, Cicero Brooks,
Oscar Cannon, Arthur Clay, C1arence Daniels,

Englewood swimming teams recently partici-
pated in two tnter-schoiastic meets, one with
Phillips and another with Du Sable, losing both.
A few of our boys, however, showed enough
improvement to be entered in the City Meet.
More Enqlewood fellows are passing the Red
Cross swimming tests every semester. This is
an indication that Englewood may soon again
be in 0 position to participate in city champion-
ship swimming competition with full represen-
Plenty of Room For Improvement
The past few years our baseball record has

Edgar Cameron, Theqrs Iudkins, George Miles,
Emile Nicholas, Donald Scott and Archie Wash-

We started our season with victories over
Hyde Park and South Shore, but then lost tour
in CI row to Phillips, Morgan Park, Hyde Park!
and Du Sable before winning from Harper. We
were then defeated by Parker in our first game
in the Illinois Tech Holiday Tournament. In our
conference games after the holidays we won
three and lost six contests. This gave us an

Friendly rivalry runs high in these bouts of

Juniors, by the time you get your 1955
Annual, you'll be almost through with
your third year in high school. That is,
most of you will. Some of you, being 335
this semester, still have or year and o half
of high school to look forward to. In any
corse, however, you'll soon be seniors.
As such it will be up to you to set an
example for the rest of the school. You'll
be expected to serve as models of good
conduct, good scholarship, good citizen-
ship. You'll have the responsibility of set-
ting the tone for the entire student body.
This is something to think about, and now
is the time to begin thinking about it.
You con have or glorious time as sen-
iors, but in o desirable way only if you do
your very best as students. You don't have
to become solemn, long-foced drudges;
but you should reodize that you are no
longer smoll children, that you are now
well on the way toward becoming full-
fledged personalities with G whole new
range of challenging possibilities.

Youth is too good to waste on the young, on old man once sold. Do you
believe this? Of course, you don't. Neither did the old man who made the re-
mark. It was merely his way of focusing attention on the beauty, the glory, the
power of youth and the heedless way all too many youngsters kick their most
priceless treasure Ground.
Oh, if one could but retain all the freshness and Vitality of youth while acquir-
ing to the full the ripe wisdom Which only advanced age seems to bring; or if
one could ottoin rounded Wisdom While still in the full bloom of early youth.
Either of these combinations would require a miracle - a miracle we can only
hope science will sometimes somehow evolve.
Meanwhile, graduates of 1955, we appeal to you to give your youth a chance
to do all it com for you and others.
; The Freshies look upon you with awe as high and mighty adults or near-
; adults. And they're right, from their standpoint; for everything, as you know,
or nearly everything at least, is relative. Though you're very young, you stand
on the threshold of adulthood. Your youth won't stay put. You can't place it in
storage. As you enter upon the next phase of your lite-ewhether it be as 0
college student, Ct worker in commerce or industry, a member of the U. S.
Armed Forces, or CI homemaker on your own-don't fritter away your youth.
Use it fully, constructively, understondingly.
