This space is given for the use and

Written for the Scout.
There is worship in fashions caprice.
1'or the ones in fashions thrall,
To the nobler type of manhood
This in not worship, at all.
Not this towering chapel,
With paint illumined pcus.
Rut the grander temple of Nature
Is the one I willingly choose.
There the walls resound with knowledge,
And the soul of all Is love.
1 seek assistance around me,
Hut ask for none Irom above.
Why should I ballle my vision
Piercing the unknown skies?
All the aids and In Ips that befriend tt.s,
On a level with mankind lies,
Our heaven is social harmony,
Our hell is anguish and vice,
To heaven, kindness ailures us.
To hell, sin will entice.
Our idol, Is pure morality
Our duty, to help mankind:
Lift the mind to high aspirations,
Keep the heart in virtue enshrined.
