The "New" Young People's Weekly

In the old Nine Partners Meetinghouse where we attended meeting this morning, Jacob found a Quaker publication from 1947 entitled The New Young People's Weekly.

Interestingly, there was a section of the journal that was dedicated to helping young people form strong marriages because of the concern that, "In the last few years, divorces have increased until there was one for every three marriages."

The advice included in the article was rather elementary and I am not sure of its efficacy, but it was a rather quaint piece that may be enjoyed (click on picture below) as a step into the past by some of our readers who were young in 1947.
