John D. -ockefeller, Jr., told his
Bible class on last Sunday that the
0110 thing above all others he admired
his father for was that "In the great
business he had built u,i he apliled
the lrinei ple ol' sicking to that bltsi
ness and building it up. Ile I has never
attempted to go into a thousand oth
er undertakings il whiclh he has been

We do not know what oteii good
things Mr. lRockefeller said to his
class of church workers, but we are
ready to concede that lie preached a
great sermon il the few vords we
have quoted. 'l'he old saying abolit a
jack-of-all-tradecs, beiig good at iotne,
we all recall, 'but in spite of that
logic we see wreeks alonag life's pike
