What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Melton \Time goes, you say? Ah no. Alas time stays. We go.\ —Austin Dodson This is a motto once carved on a huge fountain in one of the nu merous parks in Chicago. And it carries with it one more story of our stockmen’s trip to the Nation al Livestock Show. Our escorts, who had arranged our intinerary, had busses waiting to carry us from place to place. On each of these busses the driv ers pointed out things of interest. They spoke through microphones so all in the bus could hear, and the people on our bus were almost instantly taken with the fine lang uage and nice speaking voice and a certain kind of appeal our driver had. He quietly introduced himself as Lloyd Rust. \Just call me Rus ty.\ And from there on his won derful memory, the historical' back ground of every show place, which he carefully explained, endeared him to all of us. His efforts to in form us seemed above and beyond the call of duty. The quotation at the top of this column had been erased by time and the water of the fountain but still Rusty quoted it. He remem bered even the name of the author. The details and history connected with so many places precluded the chance that he could have mem orized the talks he gave. I could not help but think what a wonderful teacher he could be. And sure enough I found out in conversations with him, while waiting for the bus to load up, that he had graduated from a col lege in Chicago, through his own efforts and in odd times.- And fur ther that he had taught other drivers. And, although he would be the last to mention it, he was proba bly one of the top men of his com pany. He had done some teaching, he said. And later I found out why teachers of his kind are in demand in Chicago. Herewith are parts of an article that explains a wonderful endeav or now being carried on there by some really big forward-looking people. I t seems America has that kind of folks and somehow they come out and show themselves when needed the most. Becoming alarmed at the blight of unemployment that is settling on their city and on others, they decided that the only effective way to get these people jobs is to educate them. So, in the beginning, they or dered 381 reliefers back to school on pain of losing their relief checks. From there this kind of schooling has soared almost be yond belief. Next month enroll ment in these schools will reach 8,000 and 10,000 more are waiting to sign up. Nine months ago a cab company rejected five reliefers as drivers because they could not fill out a trip sheet. But with night school treatment managed by a Mr. Hil liard and some 210 teachers (with more needed), these five all passed and were hired. Humble dramas of 1 achievement are taking place in ten schools scattered over the city. It’s beginning to look like a two million dollar bargain (for that is what Mri Hilliard needs to run his school, not much compared to the 16 million dollar Cook County monthly relief bill. As a follow up on the cabbies, they decided to keep on with their schooling and for a model they can look to Hillard’s star pu pil— a laborer, 43, jobless since 1959 Who recently outshone hun dreds of rivals in a stiff exam for high school entrance.. “No kid of mine is ever going to drop out of school/’ he vows. That’s saying a lot—he has 14. Rusty has a little crew of 4 out at the edge of tdwn, too, he told me.
