Description (Abstract)

They Also Serve: A teacher should not think of herself as one left behind in a world at war, but as one forging ahead with the power of ideas—ideas that can be just as penetrating and resistant as any steel weapon or heavy armament. She should think of herself as serving her country through teaching, so that when this holocaust is over and someone asks, "What did you do to help win the war?" she can proudly answer, “‘I was a teacher.’ " (page 2)

Dial Dance: Seventy-five dance orders will be sold to girls who are inviting their own escorts, who do not necessarily have to be in uniform, and seventy-five will be sold to girls who will entertain servicemen invited by the committee.


Dean Edith A. Savage retires after two decades; Framingham remembers the late Ella C. Ritchie, who was the college librarian for 18 years (page 5).
