That was rather surprising, since it was one of the worst years of the great depression. There were few positions, but plenty of jobs, he assured them. Not all of them were paying jobs, it was true, but the work was there to be done. The picture has not changed much in those ?5 years. The expanding economy and the emergence of the space age brought jobs in number and of a type that Mr. Landrum and his listeners never dreamed of, it is true, but every one of them presents an opportunity for a job to be done only by hard, consistent work. In 1964 not all the jobs are paying jobs either. Communities grow into towns and towns into cities because jobs are done to make them that way . . . and most of the time, this work is done without pay; the doers seek only community impi'ovement. The successful men in Collingsworth County got that way because they did jobs well, and are still doing them. If-, is the same in every city. And those who are said to be "occupying a position" usually are less concerned with that than they are with the jobs before them. We congratulate the graduates of 1964. We believe them to be fully capable and willing to do the jobs of the future. DR. JACK L.
