Whose idea is the CCC? President ,-oc-covt, a friend of all alike, Concoivod the idea of this organization before he was nominated by the Democratic Party for the Prosicdncy From the study of statistics h learned that around 3,000,000 ostly young men, wore idle during no rmal non-depression times. He n -O- many young men out of emplym-nrt boc' .me dissatisfied with li-fe
.nd often bcame criminals. If our bo ys could bc placed in some orga,.ni:
savo to the nation those boys as useful citizens, but would raisc the m,.ro -of the ontirc country. The
gr(. test opportunity seemed to offor itself. in the forest. Hence we foco story grateful to our far-sooing rocsident for this opportunity
to serve our country as w oll as oursJlves in this grca.t conservation movement.
Con there be any question, judgig from past results, that this achietvoment will go down in history a:s the grol.test accomplishncht of
-his outstanding ago of achievements in the United States.
"More than 50 % of the boys and
girls of high school age in America are now in school'?, according to the "New York Times", This is indeeood a significant fact in the rapid growth of education in any country. The percentage is higher in urban
than in rural communities. In some cities almost the entire population of these ages are in school~' Education is rising to higher and higher levels. What can be more Incouraging for the future of our Capital Democracy in Which the people rule, than the fact a large percentage are acquainting themselves ,with what constitutes a. good and well governed Democracy When Alexander Hamilton said,"You common -people are a boast" he mont those who are uneducated. In
a country where talent has a ch.Ance to rise, all who possibly can, should avail themselves of as good education as possible. That is why President Roosvolt, in his wisdom, has made it possible for the boys in the CCC Camps
to continue their education during on.rollr nt. Thousand of us follows will go back home bettor proporod to assume le- ,'r3h:p in our respective communi- -.... - -0- -------- -Why o,-s the president use more tha.r one pen in signing treaties and other important document s?
Such pens are prized 's souvenirs and a president often uses several so that he may present them to people
especially interested in the document.

Too many of us are more duplicates of what alreadyy exists. Every man, in himself, is a "' uiiqiL.,4 no two people think exactly alik,. We are made in the image of other men, but from a dit forent mould.
