Faithfulness. Whatever happens, nover forsake a friend. When enemies gather, when j sickness falls on the heart, when the world is dark and cherless, is the time to try true friendship. They who turn from the scenes of distress be- j tray their hyixierisy, and prove that : interest only moves them. If you have a friend who loves you, who has stud ied your interest and happiness, be sure to sustain him in adversity. Let him feel that his love was not thrown away. Ileal fidelity may be rare but it exists in the heart. They only il.-ny iis worth and power who never loved a frii-ud or labored to make a friend : happy.

TN 1847 a play by an American author was produced in a New York theatre. It was the custom then, as long since, fof Americans themselves to believe that that which repre sented purest culture must come from over seas.-' Before the curtain rose on this new play, the leading actor stepped before the footlights and read a poem-prologue which scoffed at the idea that an American could write a drama, and then rebuked the sneer by emphatically declar- ing that an American can. The audience preetod the patriotic plea and the play with cheers Since that day manv Americans have written mnnv treat plays. An American culture has expressed itself as well in the field of fiction, ietry and philosophy; in art, music and in science. Culture is just as much a crop as corn. It is the refinement of the product of the cultivated field. Growing great crops, producing great bulk, we have refined our output into the best makes of food and clothes the world has ever known. From the earth we dig both gold and iron ore, and through the refining processes we produce the delicately intricate watch. The genius that can dig out the hillside and convert it into a watch can find the melody of the brook in the string of the violin. An American pianist who had acquired inter national note went abroad to play. With the skill of 1922 she had the frail faith of 1847, and had to go abroad to discover America. In her first performance only once, and then for an encore, did she play a composition penned by an American composer. The critic rebuked her, "We know what European musk i,M they said. "We came to get your message. We came to rejoice 'over the harvest of your crop of culture. Give us not that which is ours; give us that which is yours." America is developing an architecture as dis tinct and as secure as that of Ancient Greece or Rome. One of our greatest sculptors found : his art on the parched plains of Utah. One of our greatest painters came from a little town hidden in the foothills of the Adirondack."!. He has pictured for the future historian the ro mance of the opening West O. 'Henry, the -master, artist of short-story writing in the Knglish language, found his fic tion in the ranch life of Texas. When a $10,000 prize was recently offered for the best contributed movie scenario, it went to an Unknown writer from Apalachicola, a small town with a big name. Brains are found on Main Street as well as on Broadway. The phonograph, the radio and the moving picture screens arc building, not only apprecia tion, but the creative genius to which apprecia tion resjKnds. We need no longer look east for the finer things. That east is looking westward for that which we have to give. We are ripening a crop of culture just as surely as we are ripening a crop of corn.
