The Social Science medal offered by the Dud Cuson- post of the American Legion went to Chester •alchvell, son of Mr. and Mrs. tester Caldwell. The speaker in his address on Youth «and the Years Ahead" utlined four main topics of dis- ussion "Commencing to Begin o Commence," "The Challenge of he Immediate Years," "Some Lcs- ons for Tomorrow" and "Youth's Place Today." His first section dealt with the lew adventure in life which lay Uiead and a contrast Jof the 'ollyanna years of the recent past .0 the difficult present times and uture. A start now will count for nuch, the Rev. Mr. Smythe said, is vast new fields of progress will open up in a post war world of •ehabilitation and reconstruction! He told the students: "Your future s to build,. .Your future will ring with the challenges of all the past ages and the new ages to come." Calls For Courage To meet the challenge of the immediate years, young people will need courage and optimism. It must be an "unfaltering courage of the high type your fathers and mothers showed who forged this nation and whu are defending it now. "These dork years are only a small interlude in your young lives, but the possibilities of the future are your greatest inspiration., .and should evoke the highest optimism ...Tomorrow is exclusively for youth. Age lives in the past. It cannot dictate the Future or even influence it for youth. The one exclusive job for Youth is the job of Building Tomorrow." He pointed out that young people should build from where they are as it would not be wise to scrap all wisdom, knowledge and examples of the past. The great needs of the world today as outlined by the Rev. Mr. Smythe are inter-racial understanding, international fellowship, some form of world government and common re- "It is a far cry from here to your part of the world", writes Mr. Kennedy, "but I am just writing to .say 1 had the pleasure of meeting your son when he passed through these parts. I met him when he was visiting Perth for a few days and as he seemed somewhat lonely and quiet, I had him to our house and he spent a nice quiet night with us and left next morning." Mr. Kennedy knows what it means to have word of one's sons, as he lias three sons in the mountains of Syria, another still in Australia, and an adopted son. "who has unfortunately suffered in the Singapore defence and' so far we cannot trace or hear anything of him. He went up with the Australian troops." He closed by saying, "Those of us who have sons overseas have a joint interest in this war and 1 hope .someday soon it will end and that we will each have our sons back again... I send you greetings from Australia. . ." There are probably ways and ways to get out of the Army, but Mrs. William R. Whitehead and Mrs. Freeman Robinson have a foolproof method. When Herman Steelman, former chemistry instructor in the city high school took his physical for induction he told examining physicians he had an ulcerated stomach. But ulcerated or no, he was good enougl for the Army until the two Blytheville girls fixed him a box o food. Immediately after sampling the cookies, he was carried to the hospital and received an honorable discharge from service.
