Hears Mrs. Overtoil Give Lecture Outlines Many Confusions Faced by Young Folks of Today. "Children of today are of a chao tic world, and this chaotic condl tion has done things to the ambi tions of young people," is the opin ion of Grace Sloan Overton, execu live secretary of the Federation o. Churches of the division of Greatei New York, who was the speaker a a general meeting of the Paren Teacher council Thursday evening Mrs. Overton believes there is no certainty left among the young people of today. They cannot go into the work that they like and are fitted for, but must take up anything that they are able to get into. Xalks on Confusions. "The high schol graduate of today is standing by and watching the money that was to send him to col- ege disappear. The college graduate sees the money that has been spent o send him through school become useless," Mrs. Overton said. Two lundred and fifty thousand regis- ered college graduates are unem- loyed at this time and many are orking for board and room because of inability to find more remunerative work. Every profession s crowded, according to tie speak- and less than nine per cent of ast year's graduates have received mployment. Mrs. Overton divided her talk into he various confusions which the oung people of today face, taking p the economic, moral and religious onfusions. So many of our moral odes have been destroyed, Mrs. Overton believes, that today the ·oung people have-a new, concept of right and wrong.'She feels that the young folks are trying to do the decent thing so as not to destroy iemselves, and not only so that :hey will go to heaven. Mrs. Longley Chairman. Mrs. Overton stressed the point that the older people must retire earlier in order that the younger generation will have a place in life.
