OT—About 126 elementary school children here are learning a foreign language. It's part of an educational idea that has spread across the country since 1947. More than 700 elementary schools are teaching foreign languages. Ann Arbor is typical. Third, fourth and fifth graders are taking part. Associate Prof. Otto G. Graf, of the University of Michigan and two assistants teaching French, Spanish and German find that children having difficulty with reading English are the first to pick up the idea of a foreign language. This, he said, is "partially because their verbal abilities are better than their reading abilities at the moment and partially because foreign language excites their imagination, while reading does not." The object of the classes. Graf says, is to help break down the one-language barrier in students' minds and to help them in later studies. At Hays!

Organized .15 years ago, our American Hoy Scouts have done a wonderful job. Almost 23 million hoys and community leaders have played the great game of Scouting . . . have enjoyed its healthy outdoor living . . . have learned the Scout philosophy of patriotism, citizenship, faith, and resourcefulness. Boy Scouting all over our nation helps our hoys develop high physical, mental and moral standards—helps them grow straight and strong. Their service to their communities and their country range from war-time scrap collections and bond and stamp sales—to local clean-up campaigns—from gcl-oul-the-vote drives—to their current nation-wide conservation projects. Because of their training, resourcefulness, and courage, our Boy Scouts are indispensable in many emergencies. Yes, sir, the Boy Scouts are mighty fine fellows to have around. (And if yours, or the kid next door, is one of them, you know just what we mean.) On this, their '15th birthday, the men and women at Ark-Mo Power Company salute our own Hoy Scouts here in this community, and all the Hoy Scouts of America. Happy Birthday, Scouts—and many more of 'em. Ark-Mo Power Co. "A CITIZEN IN EVERY COMMUNITY WE SERVE" Boy Scout leaders are devoted to a great cause. It is building character.
