Taken individually, they look like altar boys, members of boys’ choirs, or the lads on the Chrismas Cards that stand surplieed in the candle light singing “Noel, Noel, Noel.” Collectively, on a punitive mission, they probably look like the Molly Maguires, a commando of Britishers or a swarm of the locusts that sometimes darken the Utah trail. * * * No peace serum yet discovered will innoculate these young bravos .with an antipathy for adventure. Something more drastic will be require...

Women Rush To Register 8 p.m. This Evening Will Be Deadline For Wartime Sugar Quota [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 7 May 1942
Women Rush To Register 8 p.m. This Evening Will Be Deadline For Wartime Sugar Quota Shortly after pappy went to work last Monday local housewives started heading for the nearest school to register for sugar. The requirement that registrants state their age and weight caused an occasional complaint from signers who declared that they couldn’t see just why anybody needed to know their age and avoirdupois to sell them sugar. However,- registrants explained that the applicant’s physical description must go on each ration book to identify proper holders in case of disputes or attempted unauthorized use of the books.' The registration was heavy from the very start, although citizens with a sweet tooth have today to register for their wartime quota—a half-pound per person per week. To be able to buy sugar tomor- row and thereafter, every citizen ' from a new-born babe to an octogenarian or older, must be reg- ! istered personally or by proxy through the head of a family and obtain a War Ra...

What Do You Think ? [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 7 May 1942
What Do You Think ? Mother I wonder . . . does Heaven give mothers A sort of a separate place — With clothing to mend And tears on a very small face? And do you suppose there are kitchens With boys seeking something to eat, And pies, and cakes, and jells, And heavenly smells — Sought out by small pattering feet? There must be, for how else would mothers „Find joy that is promised above — When all of their days Are spent finding ways Of serving the children they love? —ARTHUR FREDERIC OTIS O Mother's Day In the 28 years since its inception in 1914, Mother’s Day has grown to be one of the most pleasant among national holidays of the holiday-loving American people. It has taken on the happy significance of a time' for family reunions, for surprise visits to mothers from far places, for the delights of letters and telegrams and candy and flowers for sentimental mothers who love such attentions from sons and daughters—especially from sons. But Mother’s Day on May 10th of this year will i...
