Youth, With Its Dual
By DR. A. E. STEARNS, Principal of Phillips Academy.
Nolmily mo understand boy r dial with lys who does nut, first of
all, appreciate the dual nature of the human Ix'iiifT, ami particularly as it
is intensified and exemplified in youth, lierause youth starts with just about
an even fight on its hands, and has that dual nature in its intensest ami
most vigorous form. On the one side there is the weaker, the baser, the
animal, if you will, pulling him in the directions in which he knows, on
his U tter side, he ought not to go, thrusting teniation in his way, railing
hi in (T the beaten track.
Ami then, on the other side, lhere are those fine ideals, never finer
than in the ilavs of youth, those beliefs and convictions in the thinpt that
are fine and true and manly ami pure, the spiritual side of his nature, the
higher man, thr manhood that ia in him, railing him away from these
things, and challenging him to play the game ami to play the game fair
If you want nigged manhood in the next generation, it is there just
waiting to b called into control and action. If you want men of ideals,
men who will uphold our laws, men who will stand for the things that are
pure and clear and fine in home and family and civic life, men who ran
continue to lead this nation and not undermine it strength by their own
weaknesses, then do what you ran to make these condition to which youth
will perfectly and naturally and wholesomely respond.

want to kill a wolf, never take him
by the collar. No. 2, that temperance
means a total abstinence from things
wrong and sinful, and a reasonable
indulgence in the things which are
good. The President persuaded about
forty persons to sign the temperance
pledge. We hope President will come
back again. Mr. and Mrs. James

PKOBABI.T before this rearhee the
