THE CHALLENGE TO AMERICAN YOUTH
(Continued from page One)
Look at Europe Boys and Girls of America. Where are her
boys and eirls? Where is her vouthr Europe has not realized yet
just how great her loss is. She is building trying to cover up the
traces of the great struggle. She still has leaders but look they
are all old or are aging rapidly. Then look again. Who will take
their places when they pass on? The youth of Europe was killed
n the war or is now working physically rebuilding their civiliza-
tion. Who will lead Europe when the old leaders pass on? The
mantle falls upon your shoulders Young America. Will you be
prepared to lead when she calls or will you have to call back
"Wait! " "wait! "will you?
Before the war the civilized world looked to Europe for
leadership. Now there has been a great change from now on the
world will look to the United States for leadership. We have
wealth energy and youth. America is one huge laboratory work-
ing out the destiny of the world. The world needs leaders. Young
America you must be those leaders. The world is at your very
finger tips. All any one could desire is within your grasp. Will
you be prepared when our time comes to take the reins of civili-
zation into your hands? Of what "stuff" are you made Young
merica? Are you made of the same material as Washington
Lincoln or Wilson? Are you reliable or would you rather go to
a dance a skating rink or a movie than to stop and think for a
moment and then take the lead and carry the world to her high-
est peak of civilization?
Young America you as a whole deserve to become leaders.
You are good clean sports; truthful courageous loyal and true.
You have but one terrible vice; you many times throw away your
most precious possessions. You are ashamed of having imagina-
tion inspirations and of being wholesome human beings. You
like to be "smart" or you think too much of dancing movies or
other lesser things. You seldom stop and take life seriously. You
'jo spinning off somewhere in dad's auto to have a good time. You
seldom think of the higher things in life as good literature music
constructive imagination science and other constructive things. You
so many times become commonplace dull and sometimes cheap.
The world does not ask you to die for it. It wants real lead-
ers to live for it. Are you ready to live? With your background
ou should make the greatest leaders the world ever saw. Wash-
ington Hamilton Jefferson Paul Jones Perry Jackson Boone
Houston Crockett Morse Henry Grant Lee Wilson and the
rest are back of you. You can't fail them now. You must carry
on. Go high l oung America go high.
Why did America enter the war? You say "to save the world
for democracy." You are correct to a certain extent; count it so.
Is the world safe? Is democracy safe? That is part of the results.
Young America democracy is not a success yet. Your task is to
make it a success. The world is looking to democarcy. Its hope
and destiny is in democracy. Is its destiny safe in your hands? The
world does not ask you to die. All it asks is that you think. Think!
Sounds easy does it not? Well that is your task and if you think
the world is safe. The world is entering a great revolution.
You are the leader. Upon you depends the destiny of the world.
Where will you lead the groping world? Are you going to fulfill
the demands of the world? If you are you must stop and think.
The destiny of the world is in your hands. Lead on Young
America. "YOU are the HOPE of the WORLD."
THE CALL OF YOUTH
(By Thomas Curtis Clark)
You whose hearts possess a dream
You whose vision still is true
Will you follow still the gleam?
Will you build the world anew?
Futile is the reign of hate
Fated is the rule of gold;
On your deeds great issues wait
Let your hearts with love be bold.
Vain are all the tools of war;
Vain the boasting of success;
These the 'dreams you battle for
Faith an dtruth and righteousness.
Let who will despise your youth
Let them trail your words in dust;
You shall conquer with the truth;
In your visions be your trust.
You whose hearts possess a dream
God is God; His word is true
' Follow still the luring gleam
Till the world is built anew.
What la the need sometimes be-(
comes the cry. There's no use of go-
ing on. I'm not doing what I should
just drifting below the mass acting
in a haphazard manner feeling half
dead not knowing what to do and not
caring. Nothing seems to matter any
more not even the very things that
meant so much just yesterday.
It comes to all this feeling of futil-
ity; to some perhaps more than to
others. All depends upon the temper-
ament of the one affected. Some are
usually happy some generally blue
optimist pessimist genius or every
day common folk; all at various times
are forced down to the line marking
the ebbing tide.
Here comes the differentiation be-
tween the great and the little the
good and the bad. To allow the hid-
den undertow to pull one out to the
sea of oblivion is easy. No effort at
all is required; first one only feels a
gentle tug but once allowed to obtain
a firm hold struggle is well-nigh use-
less. A few have gone under and then
fought their way back; just a few.
The common end is an unrecogniz-
able body cast upon a beach far re-
moved. But the great are rarely found up-
on the wrecked fringes. They fight
back to the normal and with the im
petus of their fight go on pass man
to greater achievements than before.
It is by the very intensity of the bat
tle that genius is shown. Many have
the determination combined with the
will power to face the rough road
and plunge over all obstacles. Others
self-analyze with clear introvertive
eyes laugh at the spectacle of how
they look and shape their course back
around the lowest to the highest pin-
nacle. The majority forced by their con-
science plod back to normal through
the common place knowledge of what
is right and wrong.
So comes it that if you are as
big as the majority you will not be
carried over the verge even in your
darkest moments. If you give way
completely and continually cry "What
is the use?" why there isn't any.
Cowards can not count in this
world. E. E.
True greatness is not inherited. True
enough we inherit many of our qual-
ities from our predecessors but not
true greatness. True greatness Is
personal. You can make of yourself
what you want to. Do not misunder-
stand me I do not mean to say that
that you can become rich be a great
athlete or things of that sort if you
so desire but you can become great
if you so desire. A man may be rich
and be widely known because of his
riches but how long will he be re-
membered for his true worth after
his death? That is one way of judg-
ing true greatness.
True greatness is not in circum-
stances but character. Circumstan-
ces can place you in peculiar places.
You look at some one and say "If I
lust had his chances I would make
good. Circumstances have placed op-
portunity within his reach and he
seems not to want it." Your true
character is what you are to be judg-
ed by. How much are you worth to
your fellow man? Some one is look
ing to you for leadership how will
you guide them?
True greatness is not in self-advancement
but in social usefulness.
Do you make this world better by
your being here? Are you helpful
to society? You may not be rich but
you can enrich some one's life by
your deeds. Are you living to your-
self and for yourself? If so you will
never be truly great.
True greatness is not restricted to
individuals but the common posses-
sion of the good. Any one can be
good and in so doing can be great
if he so desires. Earthly pleasures
seem at times to be for the few but
the highr things in life are for every
one. Live for others think less of
self and you will be truly great. Rob-
ert Browning says "My business is
not to remake myself but make the
absolute best of what God made."
Pope says "Unblemished let me live
or die unknown; O grant an honest
fame or grant me none."
