Parents, Montreat-Anderson Is certainly
glad to see you. That's not to say your sons
and daughters aren't. Some of them are
running short of cash. Others, unaccustomed
to mounting hills, have lost weight. A few
may even be wiser. In summary, the composite
offspring is without money, thin, and fairly
bloated with ideas.
You may even find yourselves involved in
heated arguments with the children you raised.
But, mostly they'll be glad to see you, your
check book, and afterwards, find out what's
going on back home. They can't argue with
you too much. Who wants to lose a free ride?
And that's one of the best rewards for a
"Parents' Day". Without transportation, long
weekend won't be merely "long". Try grim.
Can you imagine.- Four days, or ninety-six
hours, or 5,760 minutes at Assembly Inn?

environment, many young people leave the
