Tho criticism slips wsre given out at just
the right time*. Perhaps heretofore we ware at
a low ebb in ova* smiling and spreading of good
ohaer. And now these l it t le bits of advice
have given us now l i f e . At least on third floor
there is quite a bit more spark. May I say
quite a b i t more in the main hall and on the
outside. Just an hour ago I heard at least five
'‘hallos” in three minutes. Several weeks ago
five ''hellos'1 would have been the sum total for
an entire day.

photography, ohocolates, one lone candle to lengthen
the day, bouyant s p irits, and the atmosphere
of Spring characterised the meeting.

had a way of helping people, and other variations
of human personalities.

Good evening, folks* Have seats. Thefie tx-ch
become a leader of man you must learn fir s t to
be led yourself. I f you wish sometime to have
respect from others you must learn from youth
up to have respect for others. I f you ever
wish to be a congenial, cooperative and desired
member of sooiety, you can’t learn too soon to
be that* And i f you as high nohool students
have not yet learned that, it is a bit latej
but there is s t ill time.
Right now in your teens you are laying down
the foundations for your life * body, mind, and
character. I f you are going to be careless,
and foolish, these* precious years, in your
choice of materials that go into those foundations,
God pity you when you go to build on
them in your twentie and t h ir t ie s . I f you put
into your character now any rotten or worm-eaten
timbers, when your building of oharacter
is up God is not going to replace them with
good beams. Do not expeot it of Him. Your
building w ill sag, and as such you’ ll have to
live in it the rest of your life2 Tell me,
answer for yourselves, are you digging into
sand or are you trenching into the rook?
I am doing much for you. I am piling about
you stores of quality goods for your charactert
sermons, classes, prayer groups, mission

I notice you are glancing around to see who

Hero’ s popcorn, take goals, incentives, warnings, restrictions,
advice, correction, even punishments, and scores
of good influences from your fellow schoolmates.
Why, oh why must you spend the virtues
like to have a ll who have been before the discipline you have at the D e v il ’ s shop for his rotten
oommittee or should have been, perhaps# I have a
number of things on my heart for you. You are my
problem children, my straying sheep, iny naughty
cnasi you are my headache, my heartache* Now
just go ahead, eat your popoomB
But I love every one of you. Perhaps you
have not had opportunities that could have developed
h i you higher idea ls, nobler purposes#
better habits* Perhaps you have more to put up
with than the re st, more to overcome, less
power to overcome evil tendencies and temptations.
There are doubtless other reasons too why you can't
behave, why you must be so noisy, so reballicus,
so irreligious, so immorally minded. You have an
influence on others that pulls them in your wrong
directions• Only tho Lord knows what damage you have
done to others who but for your influence may have
had a cleaner slate here at E .M .S . Only God knows
to what ends your hurtful influence may yet lead.
But while you are here registered aa one of
my students you are my ward, my charge, my oare,
my concern, tho object of my love, Asia I want
to do for you s ll I can* Do you believe that? I
know you do. Perhaps you have been used to
having your own way, and here you chafe and fret
under restraining guidance and directio n . You
must oertalnly 3maw ( i f you have an intelligence
of high school level) that this is necessary if

failed in the past, remember that others heave

tho fine qualities of the persons before you.
This w il l help you to forget to think about tho
impressions you might bo making on them. Kake
a special effort to win the confidence of the
one whom you think io snubbing you. Some day
you w ill discover that this same person thought
you were snubbing him.
I f you aro a person that is liked, yo\i do not
count the favors you do for others. Few people
expeot friendship in return for favors. Moat
of us feel that we would rather do vfithout the
favors. You feel you prefer to be liked for

Is it a hearsay-based opinion? I hear something

QUESTION BOX (Ones not answered)
Why do not all our church leaders, who are
popular and widely usod, put the same Btrese on
some of our church dootrines that others do?
Does it mean that this doctrine (non-conformity)'
is only of minor importance?
Can Christians always wait for some very
definite sign from tho Lord to show them Hie
w ill in some particular problem 'Vhich thoy may
be facing? When do wo know that we should wait?
The husband of a Christian mother had been
a ohuroh member for many years and then backs
lid . Now instead of going to church with the
reat of the family, he spends his Sundays at
home listening to •'ihe radio or talking with
other men of his kind. The mother beiievos
that if she would stay home from ohurch sorae~
times, her husband would stay home with her and
she could encourage him to start going to
church. Would it be wise for her to do this or
should she keep on attending services regularly

DTo De Jarnette further said, "The mind is
like a performer who plays upon the pianoa"
Only when the brain is well and strong is the

used insulin or metrasol shots.
