Volume 15 Number 13 HOME OFGENKVA KTUK2L OREM, UTAH THURSDAY, APRIL 3 1947, WXt ACROSS THE EDITOR'S DESK "What good is a law if it is not enforced?" is a question often asked concerning the speed limit which has been established in the school zones along the highway. high-way. It has been the observation of many that drivers simply do not observe the 40 mile speed limit. Several people have made it a point to watch the traffic going past the Lincoln and Spencer schools on the highway, and have found it not uncommon for cars to exceed 50 miles per hour in the 40 mile zone durinlg the hours children are crossing the highway either going to or coming from school. Parents of children who have to cross the highway to get to school are becoming increasingly increas-ingly alarmed at this unhealthy situation. Granted, the city police have their hands full with other matters, but can there be matters of more concern to Orem parents than the adequate protection of school children crossing the highway? No! Let definite and continuous action be taken now before Death leaves his footprint upon the highway a footprint which no amount of consequent protection can erase. An Easter Thought One of the most beaatiful times of the year is Easter. Eas-ter. Like the hatching of a baby chick from an egg, the world breaks out of its chrysalis at Easter and everything every-thing is bright and strong and beautiful. New hope is borm in the hearts of men. Discouragement Discour-agement and doubt flee as a vampire from the sunlight. The world has a new birth. "I am the Resurrection and the Light!" spake the Savior. And who' can doubt, with Christ's message ringing through the ages, that all good men may one day rise from the dead to a beautiful life ... a life everlasting. everlast-ing. Our Forgotten Servicemen The war has been over for more than a year and a half but thousands of our young men are still serving at home and abroad in the peace-time services. Many j.f of these young men did not enter the servcice until just !V before the end of the war or perhaps a few months after. af-ter. Now they are serving out their enlistments with little glory or recognition, and the people at home have forgotten them. The letters that meant so much to. the men during the war still mean a great deal to the men who still serve. But that lad over in a far. corner of Korea isn't getting much mail these days. That sailor somewhere . in the Atlantic doesn't answer Mail Gall very often now. That Marine in San Diego doesn't hear from home very often any more. Are we letting them down? C.E.W.
