Success and Failure
Every human being Is more or less desirous of achieving success.
It matters not how evil a life may be there is a time that a wish arises
. for "Something better than they have known."
As we know, in anything there iB one of two results, namely suc
cess and failure. The latter needs no explanation, except that it is the
opposite of the former. It must be remembered that those who go the
successful road are traveling the road of difficulty and discouragements.
Rut regardless of all obstacles it is a consolation to know:
"Since all that I meet shall work for good,
The bitter is sweet, the medicine food.
Though painful at present, 'twill cease before loin,
And then O how pleasant the conqueror's song."
The successful life must be willing to take what comes. Whether
It is to "conquer the earth like Caesar or to fall down and kiss It like
Brutus." It 13 like a person in a crowd that is rushing for a gate he
must hold his ground and push forward. If seemingly no honor comes,
bo much the better, for more than one life has been a failure all be
cause of seeking "honor.
Success never comes to an individual, but he must go after It. A
certain writer has said, "He that would win success in life must make
Perseverance his bosom friend, Experience his wise counselor, Caution
his elder brother, and Hope his guardian genius."
I say that the young life that takes these guides as its interpretor
of the road need not fear failure; but
"He who from zone to zone,
Guides through the boundless sky thy certain flight
In the long way that I must alone trend,
Will lead my steps aright."

How to Help Win the War
I can help win the war by not
buying so much candy; every time
we go to the store to buy candy
we should think of the French boys
and girls and say to ourselves, "I
am not going to buy candy; I am
going to save the sugar for the
French children. 1 will not eat
much candy so that I can save the
sugar." We can help win the war
by saving the sugar for the soldiers.
We can save by eating all the
food we put on our plates. The
e food that we save for the soldiers
would give them more strength so
they could fight better and win the

How to Catch Monkeys
When I was on the Bahama Is
lands, I saw how they caught
monkeys. First they take forbaow
as the men call it, a narcotic, and
sugar it. Then they go out in the
forest and get some cocoanuts.
They chop off a piece at the top of
each one and put in the forbaow
and sugar. Then they take glue
and pasto the top again. The men
then hide.
Now a monkey always takes a
cocoanut off the ground when he
can. So the monkey comes up, east
the forbaow and goes to sleep.
The men then throw the nets over
them and carry them away while
they sleep.
