February 20, at the New Hanover High school auditorium, at 8:30 o’clock under the auspices of the Community Forum, he will discuss his ten trips to Russia since the revolution. Although born in Rus sia, Mr. Hindus is an American citi zen, having come to this country at the age of fourteen. He holds de grees from Colgate and Harvard uni versities. In his new lectures, Mr. Hindus will show that mankind has never known a world such as the one the Russians are seeking to create. Re ligion, private property, the mod ern family, western standards of sex morality, western conceptions of sex iove, have no place in this world. Just hfcw they are seeking to rid themselves of these institutions, what the consequent reactions are on the Russian mankind and on Rus sia's relations with the outside world — these make up the chief them of the lecture. He tells how and why Russia is seeking to uproot religion, private property, the modern family, exist ing standards of sex morality and western conceptions of romantic love, and what she is offering in their place. He parades before his au dience, group after group of Russian humanity, the peasant, the prole tarian, the intellectual, the commun ist, the Jew, the Cossack, the youth, the women—and shows the transfor mations they have undergone since the coming of Sovietism. He explains the meaning, failures, and possible successes of the move ment of the world revolution, to the new kind of war that the world will witness if and when Russia becomes involved in military combat with a group of nations. Tickets may be bought at the door the night of the lecture. ‘Youth’ Work Takes Away Time From Job-Hunting, Writer Says BY RUTH MIELETT John is througlh school. Like every young man he is faced with the problem of making a living, and getting ahead. It is a tough problem in 1940 — but it has always been tough. What is the best thing for John to do? Shall he identify himself with the "American Youth Congress” —which gathered in Washington to demand “Youth’s rights?” If he does that, much of his en ergy and his thinking will be direct ed toward showing how badly off American youth is today—and pro phesying what will happen if it is not given a "square deal.” He’ll sit around figuring out just how much the government should be spending on youth, and the best way of getting it. He will be "Youth”—the nation s great problem. Of course, he could be plain John Smith. John, whose father—without government aid, without even young John’s education, was self-supporting before he was twenty, and has man aged to support himself and his family for the last twenty-five years. “YOUTH” IS ONLY MILLIONS OF JOHNS If that is what he is going to be — an individual, young John Smith his main concern right now will be getting a job, spending every bit of his energy and thought doing that job well—and planning how he can move up a notch. He won’t waste any time feeling sorry for himself, or for the thou sands of other young men and wom en like him. He won’t worry about Youth knowing that fine-sounding tferm is just a cover-all for millions of John and Mary Smiths — each of whom has his own way to make in the world. He may have some hard years getting started. it is true there aren’t enough jobs for the young who need them. It is true that many young people today are trying their best to get work and meeting disappointment day after day. But a philosophy based on what the world owes him or the conical belief that “you gotta know a guy,” won't help. And neither will government aid to youth help for long. The Johns aren’t Yoth forever. Even in a so cial-conscious democracy, individuals have to make their own w’ay sooner or later. John smith’s father — W’lio hasn’t done so bad'ly himself—would prob ably rather see his son working at a job and studying at night than being vice-president—or even presi dent—of any Youth movement. * • * LOCAL GIRLS ATTEND DANCES AT VIRGINIA CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va„ Feb. 14.—The Misses Ann Kidder, Lossie Taylor and Jane Emerson, of Wil mington, are attending the Mid-win ter dances at the University of Vir ginia this week-end.
