Franklin Phone 3617 Another "From-Me-to-You-Letter" From HARRY FRITZIUS This week's "TIME" Magaiine reports the following Olid, and lo me, curiously interesting news item: In Manhattan Beach. Calif., a sea lion, devoted to Mrs. Ruby Bigelow after she had ungummed his tarred-lip jaws. (Lcmncd after her all over .town, took no notice when she repeatedly led him to the oceim and nudged him in, finally wore down her resistance, became her ]>et. I say curiously interesting because it piques my curiosity as to what obscure or hidden mental process caused this untamed marine animal to feel so deep a sense of sincere gratitude toward a strange human being as to cause it, through a benign sense of loyalty, to leave its natural environment and attach itself unreservedly to its benefactor. Many humnns could learn a valuable lesson from this intelligent sea lion—one of the tragedies in many a person's life is the disappointment caused by a friend whom they have helped in time o! extreme need and who. when the positions were reversed proved not onlv disloyal Vmt even dishonest. One of the rarest and vet the finest Af human trails is SIMPLE LOYALTY. When someone has been your friend—though the whole world turn against then), ami though it may mean that your stand is "unpopular" never—never—let thnt friend down. Only this kind of friend is worthy of the name. You will pardon me if in this letter 1 seem to be preaching—this is just one of thow things that 1 feel pretty deeply about.
