Children are the '.hope of despairing Europe. Therefore American Y. M. C. A. workers among j boys are planning their future work largely among those who tomorrow , must run the half-wrecked machinery ' of the world. j Fifty of these workers, from 20 countries, gathered reeemlv in o KirU town in Czechoslovakia to prepare for jihe Second World's Conference of Y. jM. C. A. Workers Among Boys which 'probably will be held in Austria next ; summer. They pledged themselves to .bring together 500 delegates from all i countries with Y. M. C. A.'s. and to ; raise funds to finance a cnnfrnrA where the men who are working among hoys may exchange ideas and give practical demonstration of their methods in building character among the boys of Europe. "The most practical thing and the 'easiest said Professor Frank Thomas, vice-president of the World Committee, "is to win over the youth that will be the humanity of tomorrow. Young people are easier to win over than adults because thev are mnrp (supple, more enthusiastic, more ardent -ana less sen-interested than their el ders ,and because they are sick of the state of the world and we hove prepared it for them. They have had enough of all these compromises and meannesses, and of the pretexts of diplomatic skill, and many of them are determined to attempt something quite new, something with more uprightness, more nuritv. honestv. kind liness and beauty. They are young and the young have illusions. They have confidence in life and in man, and the j ardor and hopefullnees that no one jlonger finds in older men.'1 j NOTICE i Eva Miner my wife, has left me without just cause; This is to notify 1 all persons that I shall not pay any debt contracted by her after this date.

Clark, one of Hardwick's weil known and industrious young business men died after an illness dating back to Thanksgiving time in 1921. James Huntress Clark was born in orris -town January 19, As a boy he attended the grades of the public school cr.'i completed two years in high school at Peoples Academy. Leaving that institution at the end of those two years he went to the Burlington Business College from which he graduated. Returning to Morrisville he began learning the polishers' trade. On March 9, 1900, he was united in marriage to Miss Jepslyn Towne, and to this union four children were born. Soon after the marriage Mr. Clark went to Barre and continued in the polishing business, and about 20 years ago came to Hardwick with his family and his father, the late W. M. Clark, where they opened and conducted a barber shop in the same rooms where George A. Dixon is now located. Mr. Clark still continued working in the polishing mill and working in the shop with his father after working hours, until they built up a lucrative business. During the last of Mr. Clark's school life he entered the bicycle racing game and made a most enviable record on many tracks throughout Vermont and other Xew England states. Mr. Clark then began devoting his time to the rapidly increasing automobile business, both ast to the sales end of the business and the repairing part, and rented quarters, a part of which are occupied for that purpose today. In 1915 he acquired the Wakefield property on Brush street, part of which was used for a modern barber shop and the other for automobile purposes. He kept enlarging the plant as business Increased until today it is a modern equipped garage. Vp to about two years ago he handled the Knrd cars for this district and made an anviable record of sales. Mr. Clark's father died March 3, 1920, and after his demise the barber shop was riispsed of and Jim gave his entire attention to ihe other part of hte business. On June HO, 1920, only a fw months nfter his father's death, his wife, Jesslyn died. On August '20, 1921, he was united in marriage To Glee Towne of Morrisvilie. who sur vives him, together wun the tour cnil- i dren, Huntress, Chester, Isadel. andj James Clark, Jr., and Mrs. Towne's eon.
