SAWWDMES RIGHT ATTITUDE Osage Superintendent Says Youth Is Impressed by Businessmen. . The importance of the right attitude of youth toward life and religion was stressed Monday noon by Supt. George H. Sawyer in an address to the Rotary club In Hotel Hauford. Superintendent Sawyer cited examples to show that youth 5s thinking about religion and morals. It was pointed out by Superintendent Sawyer that youth is greatly impressed by the attitude of busi- Bessmen on moral and religious issues. In this connection, he stressed the part service clubs can play through indirectly helping youth. As an example, he cited the instance of a boy he knew who returned to school because several ·businessmen evinced an interest in him and urged him to return. Boys juid girls believe a businessman 13 practical and will often heed words oE advice from them where they might disregard advice from a teacher or pastor. ; Suprlntendent Sawyer, speaking Tfronf'many years' experience · in Osage schools, urged thrift among boys and girls. He also emphasized that proper use should be made of leisure time and that youth should be trained to do the things which are worth while in spare time. A spirit of stability is also an essential among youth, the speaker continued. He urged youth to think for himself. Superintendent Sawyer said that a lack of respect for the church among some boys and girls liad the effect of undermining them. Guests of the club were Principal James Rae, Dean S. L. Rugland, Howard B. Bruce and Charles Neveln. BowlingAverages (Continued limn sports pare) 1* ' LYONS CLEANERS W. R. LTon«, Capt. W. R « -' K- · · · · « ?! HoKn, B. ...

CHIC AGO RUN TOO HEAVY FOR TRADE Values 10 to 15 Cents Under Friday With Top Held at $3.40. CHICAGO, Dec. 11, UP)--Expansion of marketings was the lever which forced hog prices into lower ground today. Receipts of 37.000 were as estimated Saturday, but were too heavy for trade needs with demand for dressed pork at a low ebb. Receipts at principal markets were far heavier than either a week or a year ago. Prices dropped 10 to 15 cents below Friday's levels, although the top at 53.40 was the same peak as was paid Saturday. Most good hogs sold around $3 to 53.55 with the top paid sparingly. Large Purchases Blade.
