Some of them use their heads and some of them . are the taking variety, grabbing everything in sight with no thought for the future; how fortunate for us all this type is the exception and not the .rule. I cm the mother of some of these mod- ern'youths who cause some folks to lose so much sleep and am very much in earnest .when I say that I have 'never seen any work 'o'f God's creation that I admire more. They are a great improvement over their parents. Stop nd think, then ask yourself H you would not consider it a privilege to be the mother of one, even though he might wear a uniform. Speak in generalities if you must, but try at least to give credit where credit is due. I think it is a mistake to refer to people as a class; certainly it is wrong to pnint out any small group of men and say what they do as a class. There are just as many different kinds of soldiers as there are kinds of people. A Mother. ' « * * D EAR Mother: .Thanks for your letter wriich" seemV'tCPbe filled with •'. paradoxes.
