ber that character is capital;
that character should be made
up of honesty, truthfulness, and
integrity."- "Third, do not be
a dandy who is a dry goods sign

labor. There is dignity in toil of
the hands as well as toil of the
head." "I cannot think of a
young man worth while as being
unkind to anyone; true gentle
nun will never inflict pain"
"A young man worth while will
not smoke cigarettes which are
filthy and offensive." "Lastly,
the young man worth while must
be a Christian for that is the
greatest thing in life."
Mr. Guy Lee of Perrydale gave

Worth While." These are some
quotations from his paper: "Some
homes have untrained, helpless
daughters which are waiting for
a man to board." "A fcirl mut
