Youth and Jobs Speaking before a South side youth audience last week, a well-informed vocational adviser told the boys that far -too many youths are attempting to get white collar jobs, considering the number of such positions open. Otto Dillner, dean of boys at Proviso Town- ship high school and a vocational counsellor, made the statement that two-thirds of all high school boys want these jobs but not more than one-third will get them. Lyle Spencer, director of Science Research associates, has pointed out that in the average city high school 40 per cent of the students would like professional or technical positions. But there are only eight or 10 per cent in jobs that can be classified under this heading. And on the other hand there is a much greater demand for skilled non-white-collar jobs such as machine operators and brick masons. What is too often ignored by the boy setting forth to make his way or by the boy's family in making plans for his future is that economic principles are often laid upon the shelf in consideration of the supposed prestige of the professions. But facing reality and cold, hard facts, in an age that is becoming increasingly techno- logical, the skilled boys who can master a specific, technical or mechanical the edge over contemporaries. While more and more youths seek strenuously and often vainly for white-collar employment, the lad with a technical skill has less trouble find- ing work. World's Best Seller Surveys of the book publishing field fre- quently are undertaken to determine the "best seller" among volumes issued to the public. At one time it is this novel, at another that biography that rates the top position as the best seller. These books, however, have only passing popularity. One book alone maintains its lead among all others, which are after all only "second best sellers." Publishers report consistently, year after year, that this volume always sells many copies more than the novels, travel stories, mysteries, histories or biographies which are accorded the best seller distinction. The book that leads the literary field Bible. Translated into scores of languages and dia- lects, the Bible has lost none of its potency and effectiveness when made readable for other nationalities; all over the world the Bible is sold with greater frequency than any other single volume. Even in Nazi Germany, where "Mein Hitler's autobiography, is a "must" on every German's reading list, the sales of the Bible there during 1938 have been reported as being copies in excess of the "Mem Kampf" circulation. In recognition of the continued influence of the Bible, churches throughout the nation are observing "Bible day" on Sunday. Call- ing attention to the volume's importance in the lives of so many, services Sunday will be dedicated to the perpetuation of the Bible's philosophy. It is fitting that this great book should be so honored. THE PASSING SHOW My Dear. When winds blow cold, How good it seems To sit at home, Content with dreams. And moonless nights And starless skies Can cast no gloom, Evoke no sighs. And frosted grass And leaf-fire's scent But spell the time For dreaming lent. I have one wish This time of year. A hearth-fire bright, And you, my dear. PS ETHRID. AND HOW! SIB: THERE'S A NEW GADGET for those who suffer from insomnia. It is a machine which makes sheep jump over an imaginary fence and also tabu- lates the sheep. The machine counts to and by that time the insomnia victim is supposed to be snor- ing and dreaming of lamb chops. Life becomes simpler every day, doesn't it? BILL G. PS GENERAL TELLS WHY THIS WAR IS SO DIFFERENT IT'S A COMFOBTING THOUGHT that someone knows the answer. PS EVOLUTION. THE PEBSON WHO IS content with his place in life and has no desire to progress is of no service to himself or anyone else. Dissatisfaction is one of the incentives tb evolution. Evolution begins when we sense that there must be something better than what we now have. Each of us is here in this incarnation for a purpose. The sec- ond step on the path in evolution is to come to the realization of this fact. Now that we have taken this step our hearts long for that inner understand- ing, the wisdom and light that is our heritage. But the key to these divine treasures is love, love that em- braces trust, kindness, patience, long suffering and forgiveness. Down through the ages we find that love was the dominant factor. Uniting two pillars in the spacious hall of columns at Karnac are these words, "The secret of life is love." On the Island of Elephantine are found these inscriptions, "Love is the secret of "Love with wisdom is the secret of life" and "The torch of life is fed by the oil of love." Love is a great purifier. Combined with wisdom, it can be the means to an awakening to a realm of peace and grandeur. When we have evolved to the point where we can live and work for the greater common good, we have reached the third step on the path. And from this point we may at times step across the threshold into that realm of "peace that passeth all understanding." MABIE STABKEY. PS HOW ABOUT WATSON? SIB: THE WOMAN'S EDITOB of one of the dailies advises the gals: "If you're on man hunt, let it be se- cret." Why all the war paint, then? Is it a part of the disguise? Mebbe Sherlock Holmes could solve this one. He's always on a man hunt and it's always a secret. NELEH. PS PEBHAPS WE SHOULD CALL in a detective on the case. We spent an idle evening in going through clip- pings of past performances and we find that there are several actors who have not been on the boards for a long time. THE COUNTESS, MUSICAL DOT, FIBE EATEB, ELAINE TllE EVA LYNN, SWORD SWALLOWEB, AGNES'TIGHE, WILL WOOL WAY. Is there anyone in the audience who can volunteer in- formation? We don't like to lose touch with thoses who have played on our stage. We like to know whether they have gone on to greater successes or whether trouping was just a whimsey of the moment to them. Strange, how the approach of the holidays always brings that nostalgia for people we have known, have greeted briefly on Life's highway and lost again. And here we deviate from the sublime to the ridiculous to f emind our audience that there are only 20 shopping days before Christmas. Notes to Santa Claus should be written early. He wants to get his shopping done, too. And think of it. Today a lot of people will be eating turkey arid dressing and mince pie again. And for us it is only a memory until next year. H. M. L.

EDITOB: The United States post office has a brand new sales line. A news article last week quoted the depart- ment as issuing a statement plead- ing with the public to put three- cent stamps on Christmas cards. 'Preserve the dignity of your Christmas the article read. "Send them first class mail." Well, that's a new way of getting suckers. The government can't con- scientiously add any more taxes; now it's trying to use persuasion to get extra pennies from each of us. Why should I or anybody else put three cents or two cents on a Christ- mas card when the same card can be sent for only a cent-and-a-half? When a person sends perhaps 20 cards out of town, he must pay 30 cents extra if he adopts the post office's suggestion of paying three cents for postage. Dignity? What dignity? When a stack of envelopes protrudes from your mail box the week before Christmas, you know what they are without examining ;he stamps and the cards can all be boiled to say one ihristmas." So I'm sending all my cards with one and one-half cent stamps. They will get there just the same and they'll all be appreciated as much as if sent with three-cent stamps. TIGHTWAD. The writer refers to the post office rates on first class mail and third class mail. Cards may be sent via the latter, unsealed, with only one and one-half cents of postage, bearing inside only the signature of the sender and no other writing. If three-cent stamps (or two-cent stamps for local mail) are affixed, the envelope may be sealed and any desired mes- sage written inside besides the signature. SOCIAL ACTIVITIES IN CHURCHES. EDITOB: In regard to social activities in churches, I would also like to voice my opinion. If the churches were to use picnics, sports and entertain- ers as "bait" to entice young people to join their ranks, then I would say "Stop them by all be- cause the church must stand upon its merits and when a church ac- Write a Letter!

Make use of it. cepts for membership anyone who desires to join because of ulterior motives spiritual life of the church is weakened. Instead of lowering the bars and coaxing people to join the church, I would suggest that the bars be raised so that becoming a church member would indicate that one has accomplished some- thing. I cannot imagine a young, red- blooded person having a great de- sire to jump over a two-foot wall. But make it a 10-foot wall, and my! how they will attempt to scale it. It is not Jesus and the principles He laid down for our conduct that have lost their attraction for young people, but there is something rad- ically wrong in the way most churches present them to youth. They continually insist on putting new wine (the younger generation) in the old bottles (the conventions and customs and rules of conduct of a previous generation) with the result that there is life in the new generation which expands and bursts the old confining bonds. Refer to Matthew Mark and Luke Let me hurry to explain that Christianity is ever new and ever suitable to every generation. By all means let us have picnics, parties, social and recreational activities in the churches, but let us have them under the guidance and leadership of adults who understand and are in sympathy with young people and let those leaders teach our young folks how to play in a Christian way. When they grow older and go to work, they will just naturally work in a Christian way. WILLIAM LEGANT. Mr. IJegant has expressed another opinion relative to the problem of youth and church- going-.
