IT TAKES A MAN
It takes a man these days to stanc
the mighty storm that is and has beer
sweeping over this country for the pas
three y,. ars. It takes a man with a vis
ion to stay on top in such a time a:
this. Babies and pigmies, pussy foot
and weaklings at the head of grea
concerns such as the Church or Stati
can't s'and. The test of man is showx
in his ability to do things, to put ove'
Lig problems to lead people success
There are men in the world, but no
all good men are destined to be leader:
The world is not full of leaders an;
way. We have a large number o
WOULD BE LEADERS but in such ;
time as this they have been made
known to the world. They havi
drown themselves to bo complete fail
ures. It takes a man to successfull;
pastor a church. It takes a man t<
successfully head an organization. I
takes a man to pay debts. It takes :
man to do things in such a time a
GREAT MINDS DO NOT WAIVE!
We have some people whose mind:
waiver. They turn and change witl
the wind. They are ready to follov
anybody, they are ready <o follow anj
new proposition. The world today need
men whose minds are solid, men who
have vision, men who can see far a
head. I know some men who will take
up with anything in order to be con
sidered leaders. I know some men whe
will join in with organizations and
concerns that have no future what
ever, but if they can be named Pre
sident, Score'ary, etc., the name oi
the office sounds so big that they will
join hand in hand wi*h some person
who has never done anything just tc
wear the ti'Ie President, Secretary
Real men do not take up wi*b
cverylh'rg that passes. Real men will
examine 'hings thoroughly before
they join in. Have you thought of the
fact friends that you can almost ruir
your life and reputation by mak'ng a
decision to hurriedly? I know Severn
men who have lowered themselves ir
my es'imation by joinning in with
some new concern that was not wort!
the snap of the fi’« er. It is not i
good idea any way to yoke youseli
up with men who have never done
anything If you want to do big things
if you want to know big things see <ht
man who has done and knows bit
things. See the man whose mind ii
steady and sound. See the man whost
vision is far reaching. See the mar
who has a cool head and a warm hear
S~e the man who has OLD COMMOh
HORSE SENSE. It takes a big man tt
do big things. Little men with littli
minds just can't do big things. I havt
seen many little men trying to do bij
things But it is bke wearing a num
ber 10 shoe on a Number 5 foot. Th<
shoe is too big for the foot, so is th'
job too big for the little man.

THE TEST OF A MAN
(By Miss Naomi Crawford)
- It's er er.scy thing to be pleasant,
i When bread and meat comes cheap,
■ An' you’ve got the price
For your su ar and rice,
An' a conscience that’ll let you sleep
But take a fellow at’s hungry
When groceries are out o’sight,
No work to do,

For the test of a man is hunger,
An’ i’ll hafter go hungry too
IP I ain’t got food
An' ‘is credit ain't good.
Well, it's time to be go tin’ blue.
