SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 104-1 BLYTH15V1LLE. (AKK.) COURIEtt NEWS Advises Return To Classrooms Educator Says Youths J pjeed Preparation For Competitive Future "There !s nu emergency in the rduciilioii of American youth today," stilled President Horace E, Tliamiisoii of Arknnsas Slate College recently, lit discussing the need for young people below 18 to continue their schooling until thcj are In a position to render grcalci service to tlielr country. "There are fewer young people in high schools of the nation um than hi many yenis," continued Mr Thompson, "mid the greatest contribution that any youth can render to the war effort, is to ready for the national service which n'ost of them will be called on lo give when they nrc 18. "Tlic motive;, which encourage 'oulli to leave school now are im- lerstandiible. The attraction of ilgh wages, (he desire to do soine- lifng definite to help (he war ffort, and the Inducement from hose who exploit the lauor of •outl), None of these are compensative enough to off-set the great dirth in education that will follow tlie war. "Bays ami girls 10 and 17 can render the greatest possible service to themselves and to tlicir country now by getting the needed education which will help them In competing lor positions in the highly competitive labor market in the )»sl-ivar era." declared Mr. Tlioinp- ion. "A year ago the Educational "olicy Commission called attention to tiic alarming decline in high school enrollment. At that time they called attention to several reasons why tlie youth should con- tlieir education. JJiidilions are different now In \iint the war is one year nearer its conclusion. Enrollments will probably continue to be lighter; therefore the conditions pointed mil then arc applicable now. CD "Industry, labor, business, and society in general will profit lest by the proper education -of all youth. (2) "Youth who have not been called into tlie armed services can he more effecient when they are carrying forward their regular schcnl work phis the special curricula and activities provided by the schools as a recognized part ol total war effort. (3) "School officials should interview pupils who left school before the end of the preceding term am attempt to encourage them to return to sclioDl. (4) "Each school should surve; the loeal situation for the maximum amount of 'schooling provider for the esscntia^ work as may be necessary. "The' reason for .small enrollr menu in colleges is explained by the armed services taking the men and by industry and government taking the young women. This Is to ue ejected, but 1 am afraid ASunless the school officials, onls, nnd other interested people use every effort !o get students to go back to school that there will 1 be more high school students ab] cent than ever when classes begin this Fall. A good slogan for all I to adopt is 'Persuade your boys and girls to get set for tomorrow I by going to school today.' "The youth of America has the I greatest challenge that has ever been presented the youth of this country in any generation. They 1 will have to cotnoelc with the I youth of the world, since the way, 1 transportation, and communication have made us neighbors with all I other countries and since the youth I of so many of the other countries [ outnumber the youth of America. "It is necessary that the youth I of this country be well trained I in order that they may con] linue the traditional world Icadcr- Ithip that this country has always 1 furnished," Mr. Thompson urged I In conclusion.
