Download PDF for this date

The survival of human freedom and the realization of the ideals set forth in the American Constitution and in the Bill of Rights depends to a very great extent on the young Americans, Mrs. Olive Remington Goldman, United States representative to the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women, today told the national convention of the B’nai B’rith Girls held at the University of Illionis. Miss Renee Romick of Dallas was elected national president of the organization at the concluding session of the convention.

Declaring that proper leadership among women for military services can be secured through training while in college, Mrs. Goldman explained: “I am thinking of the innumerable jobs needing advanced education, technical training, professional degrees and study, which women can and do fill and for which they could be prepared in Reserve Officers Training Corps to hold commission in our armed forces or render service in some civilian capacity as so many of us now do–as technical executives in welfare services–or in United Nations technical assistance.”
