HS Diploma Worth $17,500 WASHINGTON. — Parents of high school students have a chance to make this year worth an average of $17,500 apiece to their children. It is a startlingly large sum for a teenager to get for a year's effort. Many persons highly skiHed make far less. JBii't If parents keep their children in school this year, they can reasonably expect them to earn an average of $17,500 more over their working lives than if they dropped out, according ito the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, A full four years of high school would be worth $70,000 extra. Youths who drop out, moreover, may drift from one transitory job to another throughout fcheir lives. For educated persons 1 , good, permanent jobs are plentiful. The problem is critical. We have one time for schooling, when -we are young. Yet about one million youths will quit this year unless parents, 'busi- nesmen, friends, teachers, and others act to help the waverers now.

FROM AN Ulh ON1UIY FRENCH PRINT. ROM the beginning of time, man has striven to find a source of power to make life more enjoyable; to reduce his work load. Meager ideas have led to the greatest source of energy for turning dreams into reality... electricity. There is virtually nothing that electricity cannot do... faster and cheaper than any other form of energy. America's growth to the dynamic and industrialized civilization that it is today stems from the country's utilization of electrical power to produce a better way of life, more products, jobs and services. Electricity powers progress... something to think about during National Electrical Week.

Future Farmers are in the forefront of the communities of our county . and that's natural! They're always building a gate for someone, or a cattle guard or trimming fruit trees, or helping doctor a sick calf. Part of this is assignment as class work but much of it is friendly willingness on the part of Collingsworth boys to be accommodating. Out of this comes the kind of young men our bank wants as customers ... the kind our community needs as builders. There will always be a need for farmers and livestock men, but now they must be better grounded in the fundamentals. They must have better business judgement. They must have the leadership that FFA teaches. This bank is proud of the work the Future Farmers and the vocational teachers of Collingsworth County are doing.
