to the Corinthians where the great
apostle deals In charity or love In
iljo new version The speaker is an
entertaining talker but his message
was intended more for an educated
class of Juveniles than for a rural
community Ho said that he had been
doing heavy mental work for 16 hours
a day or a double shift as miners
call it that he was tired and would
much rather be In Youngstown than
here He spoke of Aristotles phllos
ophy of Honesty and said that the
Saviors Truth is based upon Aris
totles Idea of Honesty which was
rather too deep for the average hear
