A generation ago there was fl marked trend
to take the youth out of apprenticeship, to in
augurate a play schedule to develop his body.
The trained master in the several arts or trades,
facing unemployment himself, refused or hes
itated to take the apprentice to his side.
Twenty years later we have forty per cent
of our young men physically unfit for military
service, and not enough trained men to handle
the jobs in this emergency.
The greatest mistake the leadership of this
nation ever made was when it started teaching
youth the foolish doctrine that one could get
rich without working, instead of impressing
hint with the fact that all work, no matter how
lowly, is honorable.
Too many mothers have bent over the kitch
en stove and stood at the wash tub while their
children wandered at random to gain the idea
that they were too good to work
Even when production exceeds demand, it is
a good thing for the youth to know how to do
the things that are needed in just such emergen
cies as the one now facing this nation. The first
of those needs is to know what sacrifice means.
Ignorant of the meaning, we will be forced to
sacrifice before we accept even 111 an emergen
cy the trials and tribulations that were accept
ed without complaint day after day by our fa
thers and their fathers before them.
?fji/iroi'r Enslavement and Death
In clinging to pacifism, many Americans are
doing nothing more than approving the en
slavement of millions and shutting their eyes
to barbaric cruelty. We can hide behind our
pleas for peace, but it is not like the religious
leaders of old to stand idly by when the help
less were brutally attacked and hounded by ag
In far-away China comes the story how sev
en hundred defenseless Chinese were suffo
cated to death during a disastrous Japanese aer
ial attack. From Greece comes the story telling
how the right to follow one's own religious die
Utes is being trampled by German guards
From Germany, the seat of modem barbarism,
comes stories telling how religious leaders are
concentrated in camps, how the aged are kill
ed in the name of a "new order". Everywhere
Hitler's iron heel has made its imprint, it has
trampled the rights of mankind and the teach
ings of Christ. And, yet, we boast of our peace
ful intent It would seem that there is a broad
ening of the yellow streak that was noticed dur
ing those hectic days when brave men, God
fearing men marched forth to battle and offer
ed their lives that inherent rights might be
maintained and the teachings of the Bible might
be heard without fear.
The economic order is being pointed out, and
realistically so, as a sufficient cause for action.
But aside from that the atrocities chronicled
against human decency and God are, sufficient
to cause America and decent people everywhere
to act against the barbaric cruelty.
Relief agencies despite repeated attacks from
those fortunate enough to escape the depression
clutches, have played a prominent part in ward
ing off internal strife and disunity, but the time
is now at hand for liquidating some of those
agencies and especially so in those cases where
policies of self-perpetuation are being advanc
If there is need for the WPA in a given com
munity, then let the WPA program continue.
There is good reason for continuing the farm
program along with various other government
al agencies created and advanced in the name
of needy humanity. But it is fairly apparent
that some of the relief agencies are drumming
up subjects. Reliable reports state that NYA
leaders are canvassing the high schools for
graduates with the apparent intent of increas
ing the NYA lolls rather than extending aid to
those in need NYA aid has been a primary fac
tor in the lives of quite a few young boys and
girls. The agency has aided numbers in their
struggle to get an high school education, and
possibly a few of the graduates are deserving
of aid, but this business of soliciting is taking
the relief idea a little too far.
When Congress settles down with it three
and-one-half-billion-dollar tax program it will
do well to start eliminating unnecessary expen
ditures in those agencies that have already serv
ed their usefulness, for the present at least.

Courage is required 111 these days to do what
Baylor University has done. In an effort to
"combat the rising tide of smoking on the part
of high school graduates," its president, Pat M.
Neff, former Governor of Texas, has announc
ed rigid no-smoking rules for women students.
Beginning next fall "high school girl graduates
who have contracted the habit of smoking will
not be admitted." Those applying for admission
are being pledged not to smoke.
Baylor, a noted denominational school in Tex
as. now close to a century old, has a high stand
ing of scholastic excellence. Evidently it seeks
to inculcate good morals, as well as learning.
It may be argued that whether one smokes or
not is a matter for personal decision ? even
among 18-year-old high school graduates. But
not many high school children smoke with their
parents' permission. And certainly Baylor?or
any college?is privileged to set non-smoking
standards, while the opportunity of attending
should be an incentive to students to refrain.
