take their share of life's knoks and
build their lives and characters into

are determined to have. We don't
care where one goes he is going -to

fewer and lighter will be his knocks

LAST STORY ABOUT
"A Community Effort."
No peeople is great or good eriept
in character. Character is the prod.
uct of thcught. "Tell me what you
think and I will tell you what you
rre," says a write*; and a greater
authority than man has said, "As a
ma-i thinketh in his heart so is he."
It is ideas and ideals that really gov. -
ern the world. When they are oper
ative character is the result. It is
but one half of religion to live in
secret with God. The true man owes
to himself to give out to his fel
lows the best that is within him. The
end of our effort is to bring to the
minds of our community the best
ideas and -:asa iof the day.' The
channels adopted-'are those throd'h

The' moving pictures are catching
the eye of the multitude. Ten millions $
of our people daily attend the picture

pictures has become the fifth largest
business in our country. They have
me and -apparently to stay. In
them there4s a chance of untold harm
and an opportunity for much good.
Where these shows are run for finan
cial profit there is a temptation to
yield to the popular demand whetter
that demand be for the best or not.
The moral sense of the. country is
being aroused to the peril from this
source. What all we do? Ban
them 'or convert them? We believe
the latter can be done, is going to b
done and should be done. There are
difficultieslto be overcome. Chie
among tlse is the lack oA
