It used to he thought that only i' lC11 required education, that n little Ivninmjr in the lighter arts was preparation enough for a woman's life. Kcirluniilcly we have gotten away from that idea, and have come lo realize that girls have the same right to education and the same need for it that, boys have. lint arc we ronriiiK to the point now where more than elementary rchuolinjr is lo he considered !i luxury, appropriate only to prospective .school teachers and to those who have time for extra years of idleness? Never siiu'e the world began has education been so essential as it is today. It has become an economic and a psychologic necessity. Tile man or . woman who goes through life without it is not only under a serious handicap in the winning of a livelihood, 'but is out of adjustment with the social order of which lie i.s a member. !tc is a worker in the laboratory of life, to use the baccalaureate speaker's simile, without knowing what it is all about. Obviously it is hard to find real satisfaction in such, an existence, even forgetting the undeniable relationship between economic well being- f.n.l contentment. Education does not have to be obtained at fchool. All of us know men • and women of little formal education who nevertheless have litte;! themselves for life in a way that puts to shame many a university graduate. But the man or woman with high school and college training has the better chance. and other things being enual will reap the greater reward both in the material and .the intangible values nf life. Parentfi can, hope for no better justi- licatitiii for their own lives than to see their children grow up with a better preparation for living than they had, Schooling is not the beginning and the end of that, by a long way, but it is a part of it—a pan important enough lo justify real men lieu for those who show even a secniintdy slight aptitude for mental development. George Toelh lm<1 I\uerly And CY/rne Poverty, misery tin.I crime j;o hand in hand. 'I hey I'onn ;• uch a closely- knit triumvirate th;it one sometimes is forced lo believe trial most of the s<>- talkd wickedness, purversily and general cus.scdnost of I he human race would vs.ni.sh from the scene if only economic conditions i-uuld l.c improved -utl'icitnlly. A few days nyo the health council of a representative American city submitted its repoi'l (in the city's "submerged tenth"—the viry ponrest class, which ucuipii's a part of the town that soiioloKisis have dubbed the "economic Kiaveyaid." Ninety thousand people 1 live in this particular .-ection. They malic up 10 per cent 01' the city's population. Listen to some of the figures about them: To begin with, this 10 per cent of tht city's inhabili-.nts occupies only li per cent of the city's ni-ea. It contributes 11 per cent of the city's births, but only (i per cent of the hospital Lirths. It has 1C per cent of the infants' deaths, 18 per cent of the city's total unemployed and 24 per cent of the childly cases. It furnishes 17 per cent of the city's illegitimate births, 20 per cent of its juvenile delinquency cases, ;to per cent of its murders and 'IU per cent of its houses of prostituti- tion. A glance at tho-c figures is enough lo show the inroads Dial vice, crime and general all-around unhappiness and misfortune make on the economically under-privileged. The child born in such an area does not get u fair chance in life. The cards are .stacked against him from the beginning. Nor is that all. The more fortunate man, who lives miles from such a neighborhood and grows to manhood without ever nii-:sing a meal or spending a night in jail, is affected by that neighborhood's existence far more than he usually imagines. Because of this submerged and poverty-stricken group' in: his-town, his taxes are higher. • Because of the crime- breeding conditions that prevail there, his chance:i of getting held up by a bandit some day are higher than they should be. Because of the illegal enterprises that flourish there',-iris-pity government, is infested with, graft.. Such an area, in other words, i.s a point of infection; a. plague-spot, influencing the entire city. No city can be healthy when poverty rests on any con-'idtrable number of its inhabitants. —Bruce Cation. ..MAY 27,_lOf!l- "Dirr" i llrallliv secret of its The lock is in ik<-ljii?d t!:-it ' key will not cir.c-r il. civ.-e il • lo^keJ, uiile.-LS a S?LT>M word i.s fl : celled out hy whirl n; j bit?, i dial attache:! to l'.o luck, much ! n tuimbc:- is dialed 0:1 a nndi . tclci>lione.
