The gods oT all peoples, ancienT or modern. are Godlike or manlike even as The men are who believe in Them, and men who believe in These gods are big or liTTle men according To The gods They believe in. There's no myThology abouT ThaT. The gods oT myThology could bring no peace or harmony inTo The lives oT The people because They knew no peace or harmony in Their own lives. The God of The ChrisTian peoples oT Today is a God of harmony and peace, Therefore, ChrisT- ian naTions are lovers of peace. They are keepers oT Their broThers because They wish To keep broTherhood in The world. There's no myTh abouT ThaT. -Thomas l-l. Elson I-IE greaT epic poems oT l-lomer sing To us oT The adven- Tures oT cerTain myThological characTers of ancienT Greece. and Through The heroic exploiTs oT These men, reveal To us The TradiTions. The hopes, and Tears oT a glorious people. Who shall say our annual oT Today is noT anoTher epic of young heroes valianTly overcoming The loTos lands and The sirens oT The modern world? Epic or, if you prefer iT, commonplace as The lives of These young peoples have been, They have neverTheless esTablished an honored place Tor Themselves in Torrance l-ligh School.
