"There are two ways pointed out in life: The royal path, and the othei way Is too well known to need description. It we chdose the one that truth and reason tell us leads to honor, success and happiness, we have wisely chosen the royal path.

If we build our lives with pure and noble, upright d.eedn we will have a fair temple, honored by God at the end of time. One leak will sink a shipv one flow may break _.a qhain so may we compare our deerfs. If we. have all noble deeds our building will be complete if not It will be like a broken vessel or a broken chain. "The value of character Is the standard of hunlan progress and any individual, community, or nation which lightly esteems character Is low. Wherever character is made secondary crime will prevail. "It Is men Ijke Washington with character that mean much to the life of each one of us today.

'.'Should misfortune overtake, work harder but never 'fly the track'— confront difficulties with unflinching perseverance. Should you then fall, you will be honored; but shrink and you will be despised. "In our voyage of Hf£ we must not drift but steer.
