Are You Holding Out?
It seems that there is a large
number of students who have not

College students are being asked
to cooperate in the general .object

The begirining of the functioning
of the National Youth Administra
tion’s program has a timely signifi
cance for every college student.
The general state of our national
affairs, economic and social, makes
it imperative for every individual,
in or out of college to apply his best
thought to the solution of these
problems which confront us today
It is certainly true that what is
needed more than any one thing is
a revival of self-dependence, which
dependence is likely to be lost in
time of national stress. The gov
ernment’s intervention in the field
of youth activities reveals clearly
the need for thought about tomor
row, lest we should develop a habit
of receiving outside aid, and lose
this virtue of self-dependence.
J. W. Williams
James Wesley Williams, Dean of
Men, Assistant Football Coach, A. B.,
was born December 23, 1908, about

his life work.
It is a natural and normal desire
for every individual to want happi
ness. But happiness must radiate
from within the individual.
Let us overlook the faults in others,
remembering that we have some,
possibly even more irritating to
The only true happiness is deriv

We have but one short, short life
to live. Let’s make it a great deal
more useful by administering _

stead of a sneer, and see how much
more true enjoym*ent we can get
out of lifs. .
