Training For Leadership
We ,verlo,,,k the fact that the
real s5(urc('s of leadlership in the
communitiy come from the bottom.
We 1imuet see to it that the bottom
is left open; we must see to it that S
the soil of conllon feeling, of conm
molt cons.iousness, is always fer
tile anld unclogged. for there can
be no fruit uless the roots touch
the rich resources of life.
And it seems that to me that the
schoolhouses dotted here, there
everywhere over the great expense
of this nation will some day prove (I
to be the roots of that great tree of
liberty which shall spread for the
sustenance and protection of all H
I do not wonder that men are l
exhibiting an increased confidence
in the judgment of the people, be. i
cause whenever you give the peo
ple a chance such as this move
ment has given in the schoolhouse
they will avail themselves of it.
This is not a false people, this is A
not a people guided by blind im
pulses; this is a people who want
to think, who want to think right,
whose feelings are based upon jus- I
tice, whose instincts are for fair
ness and for the light. - Woodrow A

AN UNCOMMON COM
Once on a time there was a maq,
Who always from iis youth
Made friends of Continuity,
Of Honor, Thrift and Truth;
His name was Patient ludustry
Frugality, his place.
Was always bright with'eheerfulnes
And winning homely grace.
Economy, his bosom friend.
Kept his expenses down.
While Stinginess and Willful Waste
Were banished with a frown;
Discurning Hospitality a.
Was present at hie board. O
And Worthiness to any guise fr
H as treated like a lord.
He did not fellowship Debt.
Knew not Extravagance. F
To Speculation. Greed and Craft
Gave not a single chance;
And while to schemes chimercal
His mind was ever dense,
He always kept in ready touch N
With quiet Common Sense.
He rose at dawn and went about
The work he had to do.
Was kind alike to man and beast,
To good traditions true;
His wife and children were his friends. F
He made his neighbors glad. F
And only when Ihe saw distress
Was his demeanor sad.
He was a useful citizen, c
Believed in human rights, ii
Kept out of heated arguments e
And steered aswlear of fights;
His character is radiant
With Truth's effulgent beams.
But be, alas! root and branch. A
A creature of my dreams.
