It is an editorial that was printed in the Hi-Tide of Rocky River (Ohio) high school after an accident in Michigan. Two automobiles were racing down a highway — filled with high school students. One was critically injured.( The following is a statement by the injured boy's father.) "I wish every boy and girl who drives recklessly could suffer as Forest is suffering—for JUST ONE will suffer for days, HOUR. "Forest weeks, months. If he lives, he will be crippled for life. "No, I am not bitter at young folks. I don't want them to think I'm cruel—but, if they could suffer the torture Forest is going through for JUST ONE HOUR, never again would they endanger their own lives and the lives of others.

In retail selling one learns how to apply for a job, how to get along with people, fundamentals of selling, merchandise informa- ion, window and interior display, color, arithmetic, speech, and organization. Advantages of enrolling in the jart time program include morn- ng classes only, store experience n the afternoon, reasonable remuneration, full school credit for ielling, valuable experience in ielling, particularly in selling one's :elf, and the opportunity to pre>are for one of the large fields of msiness. The program is designed primarily for students who do not dan to enter college after gradua- ion; however participating in the irogram does not defeat college raining. Students enrolling must often work during regular school vaca- ions such as at Christmas and Easter. Students receiving training this year in retail stores include Katherine Kavars at Damon's, Mar- :aret Matthews at Merkel's, Dorithy Arnold and Wilmyth Everist it the Kresge 5 & 10 store, Ma 3emis at Woolworth's, Dixie 3ooth and Shirley Kropf at Pen- Joanne Bower at Eaton's, Barbara Green, Virginia Bradbury nd Ivajane Hedgecock at Ward's, nd Marion Kelck and Shirley Mil- rath at Kresge dollar store.

"Four of the'boys who were in both legs broken and splintered, i that car are dead—DEAD, I tell One ankle is literally crushed There's a great cut on his head The nurse says he is deaf in one ear—probably due to concussion.' (We stepped to room 312 where another boy in his 4th day of suffering moaned and mumbled. A nurse was at his side. His face was discolored, and a bandage covered part of his head. The father clenched his teeth and swallowed hard. We stepped out.) "One of the 2 boys who were not hurt told me that Forest kept warning the driver to stop racing. Forest has never been reckless.

They can't talk. They can't tell what happened. They are gone. I knew all of them—their folks. It's terrible! "You can tell the fathers and mothers who read your school newspaper, for me, that they, too, have a responsibility in letting their boys and girls drive cars recklessly. "I don't want to be unfair, I want to think sanely about this thing, but I tell you when I see MY boy lying there all broken and crushed, I cannot help but think, THINK—AND PRAY." WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS ACCIDENT? The boy driver? Parents? School officials? The lenient state government which permits_ almost no restrictions on the issuance of licenses for motorists?
