How rich is Mason City in having a woman so capable of speaking to young people? These are questions-any high school student can answer with positive enthusiasm. Wednesday, Jan. 13, Mrs. Cerney delivered one of the finest brief talks ever to ring through an assembly audience. We felt her warm understanding and friendship for us high school students, and we gave in return 100 per cent attention. We are so grateful to Mrs. Cerney, and to the American Red Cross for sending her to us. We xvere made to feel that WE, the YOUTH of TODAY, are meeting the tests of life in a real American way. We were regaled by Mrs. Cerney's references to our modern vernacular such as "clap trap." She said, "Our y o u t h in the armed forces are not soft, but are co-operating and serving admirably in the stupendous war duties confronting them." Mrs. Cerney complimented us of the Junior Red Cross for our help and the members of the Home Nursing class especially for their time spent in training to receive their certificates Wednesday. She gave a new and meaningful interpretation to the immortal Miltonic line we, seniors, have just been studying from "On His Blindness"-"They also serve who only stand and wait."--Don Brewer.
