important thing is not the depression

Individual or business depends ab
aolutelv on his or its conduct now.
This generation is undergoing for the
first time, a crucial test. The depres
sion will strengthen the characters of
some and destroy tne characters of
others, depending on the stuff they
are made of. We are going to learn
that the real failure is not loss of
money or posit ion but loss of char
acter; and in the same way we are
going to learn that real success can
orly come by maintaining, through
thick and thin, high standards of con-!
duct both in business and in life.
Those concerns and individuals who
either meekly accept failure or. un
der pressure, resort to unethical or
dishonest practices as the easiest way
out. can never share in the future
prosperity of the country. Theee hard
times are rapidly sepalating the fight
ers and the “square-shooters ’ from *
the cheats and the “quitters." You can ;
easily tell them apart. The quitters j
are fleeing to the personal bank- ,
ruptey courts to escape their just
debts. They fail to realize that by so j
doing they are blasting their char-J

One group of business men will
shade the quality' of their g«M»ds by
putting in inferior materials, thus

before, need every bit of wear and j

other group of business men will main- [
tain their same standard of honest I
quality and refuse to be pushed into !
the “gyp goods" class even though
they temporarily have to operate at
a loss. They will lower prices but will
refuse to misrepresent their mer
chandise in order to undersell com
petitors. They know that the only >
sound foundation upon which to build
a business is fair dealing with their
customers. They will not try to es
cape the present depression by en
dangering the reputation of their

though temporarily thay may make
profits from the abuse of labor and
by unfair competition in established

out finally will be the one who has

days, and I gave then a chance to

‘Thoughtful of you to build a great

Holmes gloated with a half-sneer.
His very posture was a taunt.
’Those things will happen, don’t

Livingston said, laughing at hia own
expense. *‘l cautioned the men to

“And you were too deeply en

Livingston, on the other hand, was

for a mistress, he wouldn't think of
