and some who have sent their daughters to college are often faced with this question Some people seem to think that since most women many at a relatively young age the money spent for higher education is wasted The question is not being asked so frequently these days for the practice of extending the educational careers of America's young women is growing and many who have had the advantages of advanced education have proven the general merit of the plan Today as never before there is a real place in American life for educated women With the present world crisis being extended from year to year by the lack of real leadership on the of the leading nations of the world there ia more son than ever for the education of our young women Selective service seems destined to defer or hinder the education of the young men of the country and there are many fields of modern endeavor that require the knowledge and skill of experts Many modern jobs do not require any great degree of cular activity since much of the drudgery of modern manufacturing is performed by the power of and steam Atomic energy is in the ready to take over its share of the lifting and turning energy requirements Trained brains are needed rather than brawny arms and in many of the technical fields young women have been found to excel young men in performing the in- tasks required of workers in these modern times There is a great shortage of workers in the field of human medicine and this shortage is not likely to be eased by the selective service requirements Women doctors and surgeons already have carved nice niches for their sex in the fields of medicine and surgery and it would seem to us that more women should enter this field in the years ahead An education is something that cannot be taken from an individual No tax has as yet been devised that could lessen the sum total of knowledge that has been acquired by an individual and there are no signs on the horizon that such a tax can be designed even by the experts The writer has never been one to discourage early marriages It seems to us that there is a time for everything and our own observation lias been that those who enter the portals of marriage at a ably young age but with fairly matured minds are more likely to find happiness and security there Even if the girl college graduate marries shortly after her tion from college she has not lost anything by being educated and her parents have not sacrificed in to give her an education A real education is an obligation for greater ice to one's fellowmen The man or woman with book learning that does not recognize this obligation is not really an educated person The inspiration to render better service to one's family and friends and to one's community stale and country is best achieved in those institutions of learning that have devoted and tional leaders at their heads and that are staffed by teachers who recognize the real values in human life and relationships Educated wives and mothers can be of real benefit lo their husbands and children and thus the circle of influence starts to bear fruit at home Educated women also can find many opportunities to serve in their home communities and as the circle widens more and more people get some from the sacrifices of the parents and others who made the education possible No one ever pays for the full cost of a college tion The physical plants which most colleges operate are the contributions of preceding generations A great portion of operating costs comes from endowments or from state and federal support which in turn is by a vast number of people Self-sacrificing instructors and professors con- tribute mightily to the over-all cost of the education by serving for salaries far below what many of them could command in outside fields of endeavor Some men and women have paid with their very lives to perfect the processes of modern education To the mothers and fathers of the world God trusts His most precious jewels the segments of human life which are to build or destroy His universe These less babes are like the uncut gems that have been for centuries in the bowels of the earth Their true beauty can be brought forth only by cutting and polishing No one would think of giving a great diamond or emerald into the hands of an unskilled craftsman for he might mar its beauty How much more precious then are the jewels beyond value that have been en- trusted to the care of the parents of the In America today parents still can select the school or college of their choice The talents that have been entrusted to them in the life of their son or need not be buried in tho earth but may be put lo the best possible use by a training for greater service to mankind Those who have daughters of scholastic ability and of proper age for college may well answer the question Why Educate a in a positive fashion by saying For the betterment of mankind JU N Korean APPROACH MAINi CHINESE ARMY Darms
