WORLD YOUTH DEMANDS
EQUALITY FOR ALL PEOPLE
1. VERIFICATION—Typical of hundred* oi
cases handled “on the spot” is this one a t Godman
Field, Ky., in which Cpl. Stephen 0 . Lawrence
tells Grant Hawkins, ARC field director, of In­
dianapolis, Ind., th a t he is worried about an
emergency a t home. Field Director Hawkins
rushes a message to the chapter asking for veri­
fication which may be needed by the commanding
officer in deciding the question of Cpl. Lawrence’s
furlough.
2. NOTIFICATION—Field Director Hawkins
passes on to Cpl. Lawrence the report from the
chapter and the assurance th a t Home Service is
already on the job helping the family. He offers
to lend the serviceman the money he may need
for the trip if his request for a furlough is
granted by the commanding officer.
