Quote of the Month: Youth's great possibilities
"The youth of every generation has stood in a critical position, for the scales have been tipped one way or the other by the training they received from their elders. This is particularly true today. Our boys and girls have greater freedom, exercise greater power, and have more opportunities for both good and evil, than ever before. How important it is, therefore, that youth’s great possibilities for good be realized and developed!"
— Angus S. Mitchell, 1948-49 RI president, address to the 1949 convention in New York City
