Youth, With Its Dual
Even Fight
By DR. A. E. STEARNS, Principal of Phillips Academy.
NoImkIv ran understand boys or deal with loy who dora not, first of
all, appreciate the dual nature of the human U injf, and particularly as it
is intensified and exemplified in youth, becaue youth starts with just about
an even fight on its hands, and has that dual nature in ita intensest and
most vigorous form. On the one side there is the weaker, tha baser, tha
animal, if you will, pulling him in the directions in which he knows, on
hia better side, he ought not to go, thrusting tempation in his way, calling
him off the beaten track.
And then, on the other aide, there are those fine ideals, never finer
than in the days of youth, those beliefs and convictions in the things that
are fine and true and manly and pure, the spiritual side of his nature, the
higher man, the manhood that ia in him, calling him away from these
things, and challenging him to play the game and to play the game' fair
and true.
If you want rugged manhood in tha next generation, it is there just
waiting to he 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 can
continue to lead thia nation and not undermine ita strength by their own
weaknesses, then do what you can to make these'eonditione to which youth
will perfectly and naturally and wholesomely respond.

France rejected. Then new plana
were snjrrcated by Britain, by France

mittedly a temporary compromise,
might be adopted. This provided for:
