"Love and Youth" is commented upon in the Register,
20 January 1923, page 14d:
When I stray away from the beach proper and accidentally come across lovers enjoying the peaceful bliss of seclusion, I feel I am trespassing on holy ground...

Do not drive the young people, the hope of the race, into dark places.
