One of the bestWas."young: person ca n prepare to. be a good citizen is to get the best possible education. Lately there has been much controversy over the p0ssi, ble superiority of Russian schoolS. As a student I can destroy this possibility by applying myself to learning. No hool can be any better than the students who at tend. rie students must excel scholastically and must also de- velo p proper fftitudes. THE 1 STIJDENT who does his best: in school is giving his na- tion his best service, Where would the, Declaration of Independenqe have .come from if Thomas Jef: ferson, hadn't bothered to learn to write? How long wpuld our na- tion have. survived without the Constitution, :which was written by learned men with the ability to express them,elves clearly? : The student does have. other bb: ligations besides studying. He should take an active part tn the extracurricular ctivities of, his School: By joining clubs he learns to, get:,along with others. He be gins to understand Democracy and how it functions. These extra ac- tivities can help relieve the ten- sions of .Scholastic life. They are also a means of developing one's self confidence. When! speak of a good educa- tion. I include also moral and re.- ligious training which mUst begin in the home. Our land was Settled and our country was founded by religious men. Faith in Cod'has comforted and led many .gTeat men of our country. Our country is .based on Christian principles with freedom of religionf0r ai .... A CLOSE religious Lie gives one a high moral standard. It is a fact that all former empires fell due to moral decay and.corrup- tion.from within the country it- self. A belief in God is the grea- test. deterrant to moral decay. ] can serve my country, ,by be a moral citizen and-religiou givc this high moral standard. I, as a young American, can serve my country by keeping in- formed on current affairs. By hav- ing a knowledge of the circum- stances. I can have a better un- derstanding of the decisions made by our government officials. I be- lieve it is the right and duty of every .ctizen to criticize the gov- ernment leaders if he disagrees with a policy or decision. Timre- fore, a knowledge of current af- fairs is essential h fulfilling this obligation. I also feel that young peop should take an active part in pub- lie service organizations such as Boy Scouts, Church youth groups etc. These organizations help by giving leadership training and op- portunities for the older members to help and guide the younger members. Another way rot youth to streng- then America is being brought out by President Kennedy and his physical fitness program. To be By Doris Ili('kson IX)ST LAKE -- Jim, Barb ad little Scott Bm'ell were the four day weekend guests of the Don Saegers. During their stay they joined the Saeger's in a picnic, at the South fork of the Skokomish River. Recent Luncheon guests of the H. A. Loertscher h0me were San- dra Mattson. Mr. Richard Matt- son, Mrs. Pat Dugger. Dave Dugger, and Dora Brown. Dur- ing the luncheon Mrs. Brown en- tertained the guests with a show- ing of antique glass. MR. AND MRS. R.EILY and children spent Friday with the Clyde Norris family. Saturday night there was a "whooping" good time at the Bill Wivell home, because it was Mr. Wivell's birthday. Guests of this party were: Mr. and Mrs. Stan Armstrong, Mr. and Mrs. hen Freeman, Mr. and Mrs. Layman, Mr. and Mrs. Jim Burwell. Mr. and Mrs. Don Saegar, Maradee Guyer, Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Cole, man and H. M. Wivell St. MR: AND MRS. DENNIS Loer. tscher of Seattle were the Sun- day guests in the H. A. Loertsr eher home.

Turning out.for school sports is xdellent and it also teaches teamwor k and sp0tsmanship. A strong country needs strong citizens, young, ad old alike. As a young citizenI can keep myself physically fit and thUs help strengthen America:. PERHAPS ONE OF the grea.. test services I can give is to help younger people to become better. Few teenagers realize that smart ler children often lo0k tip?to them if I set a good example for these children, then .by helping them, I have helped America. However, to set this example, I must always obey the laws, be courteous, have & high moral .character.and ShOw patriotism to my. country. I can do one more service, >but I need the help of every young per- son in the land. The prestige mid honor of young people has ebbed to a new 10w in the past fewyears. The word "teenager" has become synonymous with delinquent. By being a better person mentally, morally and physically, I can help aise the reputation of American youth. It is said that a country's greatest resource is its . young people. If I can raise the .stand ard of young people, then I have raised the wealth of the country, Another way to.prepare to be a valuable citize is to learn about the _Tnited St.stes, the. traditions; aud the heritage. We have rich traditions and an inSpirifig heri.- tage. By learning of our history I can understand out present and help guide our future. IN SUMMARY, .I believe I can best sezwe the United States by preparing to be a future citizen #nd voter. I must receive an edu- Cation, for without it I cammt hope to make' wise decisions in -this ever-changing world. I need' a re ligious background for I must have a belief in God. Without this faith I will be fuII of uncertainties and doubts about right and wrong: I need to take an actiVe part in school and public affairs, for this is preparation for a greater 'role in te future. I need to keep phy- sically fit, I need to learn about our great history. Meal/ important, though, I must strive to become a good, moral honest, and patri- otic citizen. My goal is to be a person of whom the United State can be justly proud. To serve in this way, I must now prepare fo the future. : i i i By Rachel FTeelin BELFAIR Much of the ac- tivity in this c0mmtmity the past week has centered around grad- uation activities and the last days of school before summer vacation.
