“Young Americans have a moral obligation to prepare themselves for the increasingly complex responsibilities of citizenship in the world of tomorrow,” Don Newmann, international president of Aleph Zadik Aleph, B’nai B’rith youth organization, told the opening session of the 30th annual convention of AZA at the University of Illinois here last night.

“Growing up in the age of the atom and jet propulsion could be a rude awakening if youth is unprepared, ” Newman said. He pledged youth’s continued willingness to “die for our country if need be, but primarily to live for it, which is the AZA motto. Our contribution in fighting men was surpassed only by the contribution of AZA-trained young men who have been made aware of their community and country,” he said.
