Has civilization as we know it come to a elose- and are the great cycles of time, turning as relentlessly as the tides of the ocean, about to swing into new orbits?'Are the frontiers closed to us? Is there no future? No—the only frontiers that have been crossed are those of geography. The frontiers of the mind, of research and Idiowledge, are virgin wilderness, marked only by the footpaths of those intrepid adventurers who dared to think . ahead. Never .before has there been such an opportunity to learn. There were never so many things to study, so much to be found out. Every day discoveries are made beside which the conquests of Columbus or the ancient voyagers pale into insignificance. Each adventure in knowledge, each new discovery paves the' way for others far more important to mankind—for each rests upon a broader, firmer base— and offers far greater possibilities to the next inquiring mind. But Youth says—"We want to get ahead—to make a living. WE haven't the opportunities to carve out a life for ourselves that the pioneers had." Haven't the opportunity? With our three dimensional lives opening up new trades, new professions, new types of work—or new ways to improve old ones? There are not the same opportunities—and there are no easy jobs—but the pioneers to which they so glibly refer did notv have easy lives and their work was not that to which they were accustomed. They had to learn., Youth today has the opportunity of going, on from where the previous generation left off, -with the same initiative, resourcefulness and adaptability. They can "go further because of the efforts of those who preceded them: .Man's opportunity is limited only by man's knowledge and;,his ability to utilize his experience. There,is always a place in the world for "the learning individual—-"he "wiirj thinks—who wants to give his best and to make his work the Jfee&ns of helping others. ,Tlie, frontiers are not closed. Beyond them lies a challenge to stir the courageous in heart and spirit—a challenge to do and dare, and to find out! Will Germany Split Apart? Early in the war the British and French had great hopes of what could be accomplished by propaganda. They sent' flocks of aviators over Germany to drop pamphlets urging the, German people, to overthrow Nazi rule. Apparently thisjforni of attack.accomplished little. The German people were, told that this propaganda was all lies, and they were gullible enough to believe it. ,The hope -is still entertained by many that the German people will get disgusted with the war, and will rebel violently against the losses they are sustaining and will finally throw put Hitler and his crowd and submit to reasonable peace terms. They would save themselves great distress if they wd*uld do so. - ,Xhey are told that they were tricked and deceived when tiliey laid down their guns "in 1918. It was said that the allied leaders promised them a peace of reconciliation and friendship, based on President Wilson's fourteen points. These promises, it is claimed, were not fulfilled. The Nazis further claim that if the Germans give up now, they will.have to submit to an even more disastrous settlement. ft,is unfortunate that after the World war England and France .did nbt adhere more closely to the understandings on which peace was secured. If the Germans had won that Avar "they would have imposed,far. more severe terms on their beaten foes. Anyway the Germans feel they either have to win the "war or else be crushed to earth. So they fight with a terrible determination. They are like a man who holds a mad bull by the horns. He may not be able to hold on, but he. dares not let go. *-_. The,Nazi government has treated the conquered countries,, with, such atrocious cruelty that it may well fear what will.happen if it surrenders. So it seems doubtful if anything less' than severe military defeat will lead those Germans to quit. When the war ends, it is hard to see how permanent peace can come unless there is an attempt on the part of the victors, whoever thejr are, to produce a genuine reconciliation. Pooling Their Brains We've heard a lot about shortages in the defense pro- ..gram. Silk, copper, aluminum—the list is growing. But we haven't heard much about the greatest shortage of all—the shortage of facts. Facts about" taxes, strikes, priorities, price control and other vital problems affecting business in the inidst of the greatest upheaval in the history of private enterprise. America must Have such facts. That's the only way we can solve the complex problems ahead. The Congress of American Industry being held in New- York next week by the National Association of Manufacturers will be a big step toward passing the facts on to the na- tidn's industrialists, large and small. Men in the know about current business problems are going to get together and thrash them out. They have a big job ahead of them, but t»e fact,that they're pooling their knowledge and experience in this congress indicates their determination to solve their , difficulties with speed and accuracy.

Unlike many senior classes which have gone before them, the present class continues to place a large number on the roll, even though class activities may take more time away from their studies.

Send Mail Early, Postoffice Warns With the beginning of December and the very,first indication of the annual Christinas rush at postof- fices, postmasters throughout the country are urging their patrons to get their letters and-packages into the mail at the earliest possible moment. Due to the fact that there may be heavy use made of the railroads in .transporting troop movements of soldiers home for the holidays, it is possible that there will be less facilities than in previous years in handling Christmas mail. This, coupled with the fact that there is expected to be heavier mail than ever before, all persons are urged to get their parcels and cards into the mail at once'if they must travel any distance, and the earlier the other Christmas greetings are sent out, the better. 3 Momm MV£ YOU FORGOTTENWrOM?
