They arc, he Hlat.es, working closely with veterans' <>r- gani/.ations, Cambers of commerce, service clubs, church, eili'/ens' corninitteos, town and county officials, parents and j'urm Croups. .\fr, P.arclay says: "The community programs are liein.u 1 concenlrated almost. overwhelmingly on 'living war memori- yls.' These are ol' a type which the returned veterans and their famines, the •people of the town ami the coming generation can enjoy. Memorial plaques and Hhitues still have their place, Mil major emphasis is on something useful in tin. 1 daily lives of the citizens." -• Questionnaires were sent out to more than ;")() newspapers, representative of tho country press in every state in the '(,'nion, Kditors were asked: ''Is your town planning a war memorial.^" Of those relmniu.u' the nuestionmdiv, 70 pel- cent nnswered "yes" and -7 per cent n'aid "no," Three per cent said their community was "considering the matter or was still nnoerlain about plans, 1 ' "\Vli.nt form will this memorial take?" WHS another question asked editors, Tn reply, ".'!.- |ier cent of I lie editors stated Hint "living memorials" would he or w.ere ali'eady hein.n' 'erecl'eil in their l,n'wns; I!'." per cent said llml plaques or statues were lieiu.i; 1 installed; ".."> per cenl said the matter was undecided, Tn some .instances editors reported (hat hotli living memorials and plaques wei-e hein.i;' sponsored l>y their communities, The "living memorials" reported by editors include such worthwhile things as community centers, athletic fields, lighted stadiums, lihraries, hospitals, s\vim- TTiinK pools, veterans' hitildiinu's, memorial trees and shrill) plantings. fn one or two instances, Mr. Barclay tells us, some very unusual living memorials are sponsored. Kor example, M. X. Taylor, publisher of the Tonkawa (Okla.) N'ews, reports that World War "IT veter- '** aas and local cili/.ens in his commiindy are raising an $H,<)(10 fnml for a home for a permanently disabled Tonkawa veteran and his family. In ( 'oopersville, Midi., L. W, Shears relates thai a memorial pipe oiyan is beiny sponsored by the youn^ people of the .\relhodisl church, while at the same time the American Legion is ivorkitii; on a program for a community Mr. Barclay's article is both interesting and informative, Tho "Publishers' Auxiliary is lo be praised and complimented for its public spirit, in conducting tliu survey, Jewels In Demand The jewelers are doini; well, and they oxpect to KO right on doin.u 1 well, they said at their annual convention in New York, "There are still unfilled wants of people who wish to satisfy (heir desire for beautiful thiu.u's," said (', I. Jos^pli- son, Jr., president of the national association, delicately describing a rushing business, Many people who did without luxuries during tiie war are buying (hose beautiful things now. Husbands and sweet- liearts homo from tho war are buying jowohy for their wives and fiancees. .The .bwejers say they're having a lit- tlo troublo, like everyone else, getting enough to ndtl to the joy of more women every clay.
