They are respectable citizens. There's not a needle- j taker In the crew. "We wanted to restore dignity to the dance band," Sauter said.

That before we could recover we must experience a personality change. One that will give us n new outlook on life, will enable us to meet the demands of each day and to adjust ourselves to each situation as it seises. One in which we experience no feeling of self-pity, no resentment or remorse. In giving up drinking we do nol regard ourselves as heroes or martyrs, entitled to make unreasonable demands on our families and friends. We appreciate the seriousness of our way of living and regard it as the most important thing in our lives. We have learned to rid ourselves of fears, resentments, false prides, jealousies and emotional disturbances that have formerly been our enemies. We have learned to be tolerant. We arc beginning to live honestly and truthfully. • We believe in EASY DOES IT — LIVE AND LET LIVE — FIRST THINGS COME FIRST.
