Advice From Baruch
When he went to work for Wright,
Bernard Baruch advised him, "Give
your best to the job you're doing
and your job will do all right by
you," and Mr. Smith has followed
that advice well.
But he underwent an appendectomy and his" doctor directed a
change of jobs. So in October of
1947 he accepted the principalship
of the New Haven High School at
Union, Ky, largely as a gesture of
service to his community.
Since that time, the school has
undergone tremendous changes.
Since Smith was forced to commute 20 miles from Burlington,
where he lived, he was hardly making automobile expenses.
Other principals usually quit the
post after the first year, but he decided to stay. He launched a campaign for improving the school.
Classrooms were painted with unorthodox color schemes by student

To Interview Godfrey
This summer. Smith has an appointment with Arthur Godfrey to
enlist his aid in getting every American high school marked to make
air travel easier. And some day he
hopes to introduce a program of

A fitting tribute to Smith and his
community was printed in an editorial in the Cincinnati Enquirer on
March 30 which said in part:
"For community enterprise the
standard order of procedure in dealing with most problems of local
need, and housing in particular, is
to adopt a resolution and demand
that Congress do something. It is
refreshing . . . and heartening . . ,
variance from this custom that is
being demonstarted in the community of Union, Ky."
Then, after explaining the progress made at New Haven High, the
editorial continues:
"Life magazine has evidenced interest in pictures of the actual construction of the principal's house
this summer . . . We wish the people of the New Haven High School
district the best of luck in their enterprise. We have a hunch that the
nation would be better off if there
was more of this type of 'Let's see
what we can do about it' in every
community in America."

over the meeting and Dr. Groves opened the session with a lecture on
"Dynamic Marriage and Family Living."

Persons dissatisfied

to correct their difficulties.
Gladys Hoagland Groves, director of
the Groves Conference on Conservation of Marriage and Family. Chapel

Dr. Groves, whose topic was "Dynamic Marriage and Family Living."

"Marriage and family living are
more than a way of life." Dr. Groves
continued; "they are the result of

world we are to live in tomorrow

basically unhappy because of their

An unhappy home life is particularly dangerous to the child. Dr.

his confidence in his own ability to
make a satisfying marriage.
"Since parents cannot predict
whom their son or daughter will
marry, they should take action to

helpful education for marriage, she
asserted. Dr. Groves urged that
greater efforts be made to provide
education for marriage in the high

also that such educational facilities
should be provided for those already married so they will learn the

Lefs think back through the years

college undergraduate days. Can
you remember all your old chums
and what their plans were, and
then compare that to what they

Come on now, think hard. What!
Why you don't even remember
what they are doing! How about
that cute little girl that sat next

one of your chums? If not, then
chances are that you haven't the
slightest idea where she is.
