Ill University of Virginia; Thomas Jefferson, Architect F4( Leaders...for tomorrow "What greater or better gift can we offer the republic than to teach and instruct our youth?"* "SHOULD I GO TO COLLEGE?" That all important question is in the minds of many high school students. That they find the right answer is equally important to every one of us .. and to the future of America. GREAT GAINS TO YOUTH have been accom plished through education. Still, four out of five of our young people do not go to college. Some of these may have a spark of genius, or leadership talent, that will be wasted through lack of educational opportunity. 400 UNION CARBIDE SCHOLARSHIPS have been provided for through The Union Carbide Educational Fund to encourage able and deserving students toward successful careers in business. Scholarships are now open without special restrictions-through 34 selected liberal arts colleges and technological institutes-to all students of high schools and preparatory schools. THE PEOPLE OF UNION CARBIDE hope you, too-as you think of the future for your children and other deserving American youth-will do everything you can to encourage their ambi tions for adequate education. Also, that you will join in giving co-operation and encouragement to those who guide and teach them.
