IN MEW OF PROF
STEVAN R. YOUNG
Mr. Stevan R. Young who came to us
as teacher in Industrial Art died at
Camp Lee, Virginia. Jan. 29th 1918.
When the New High School was
ready to enter and the department of
Industrial Art was added, Mr. Young
was chosen to fill a position In that
department. He was among us only
a short time, being called by his
country to train for service.
Though with us as a co-worker a
very few weeks we had the opportuni
ty to see and Judge of htm to be a
worthy young man, well trained for
the work, gentlemanly In his bearing
and we had bright prospects for his
Mr. Young adopted for his, a life
of service. He had entered upon his
work here with enthusiasm and re
gretted very much having to give it
up so soon, but after remaining in
camp a short time he expressed him
self as finding even greater service to
render there. He was promoted from
corporal to sergeant.
While we regret the sad news of his
departure, we feel that the Lord has
a purpose in visiting this sorrow up
on us and we yield to His will for he
doeth all things well.
.Resolved, That in the death of Mr.
Young the teachers have lost one of
their number whose place was a uni
que one, and will not be easily filled.
Resolved, That a copy of these
resolutions be sent to the bereaved
family and the Pearl High Voice.
Mr. C. L. McKissack, Chairman.
Miss I. A. Du Pont.

A good wife must be a good house
keeper. No matter what a .girl's ac
complishments may be, her educa
tion is Incomplete, if she has not
some knowledge in the science of all
branches of domestic science. All
experience and observation show
that good housekeeping is one of
the most essential elements of hap
piness in the household. Even If a
girl should never be required to do
the work herself, she ought to know
whether the work is done in the
proper manner or not. "Give me the
fair one In city or country whose
home and its duties are dear to her
heart." The greatest defect In our
social system is the aimless way 111
which our girls are brought up. Nine
tenths of them are prepared in
neither body nor mind for the lofty
duties and serious responsibilities
which marriage implies, and mar
riage, In consequence, has been
brought down to a low moral plane.
Let our girls be brought up to have
their dally domestic duties, let Idle
ness be forbidden them, anil let
every woman be clothed with the
dignity of a useful life. The great
secret of domestic tranquility lies in
a good square meal. One writer
"We may live without poetry, music
We may live without conscience, we
may live without heart;
We may live without friends, we may
live without books,
But civilized man cannot live without

knowledge but grieving?
He may live without hope; what Is
hope but deceiving?
He may live without love; what Is
passion without repining?
But where is the man that can live
With Dr. Holland we believe that
there is but one cure for many of
our social evils, and that is "univer
sal housekeeping." No hotel or
boarding house, no cafe or restau
rant,' however pleasant, can supply
the want created by an' instinctive
heart longing for some place "be It
ever so lowly," which can be called
