pressman's declaration as to the ul-j

have heretofore been strong Bupport-'

TEACH GOOD CITIZENSHIP
Strength. Corn-age and Good Man
ners Inculcated Great Pos
sibilities in Work.
Washington. Feb. 15. American
boyhood should be resourceful and
Inventive, so that the American man
of the future may be ever ready to
help in the hour of the nation's need
in the opinion of Theodore Roose
velt, whose letter to the Boy Scouts
of America was read at the banquet
of the national council of the organ
ization here last night.
"It is unfortunately out of the
question," writes Mr. Roosevelt, "for
me to accept your invitation to speak
at the boy scout banquet. I am very
sorry. I earnestly believe in the bov
scout movement, because I see the
national possibility of this movement
among boys. There are several
things which we should see in ths
lives of our American boys. They
should grow up strong and alert, able
to 6tand the strain of an honest day'
hard work, and of an honest attempt
to help forward the material and
moral progress of our nation.
I'RGISS GOOD MASKERS.
"American boyhood should be re-
jsourceful and Inventive, so that the
American man of the future may be
ever ready to help In the hour of the
nation's need. American boys should
always show good manners and the
desire to help those who are in trou
ble or difficulty, and, indeed, to help
the weak at all times. Courtesy is
as much the mark of a gentleman as
truthfulness and courage, and every
American boy should be a gentleman,
fearless in defending his own rights
and the rights of the weak and
scrupulous to inflict no wrong on
"The boy who is to grow into the!
right kind of a man should soorn
lying as he scorns cowardice and he
should remember that the right kind
of strong man Is always considerate
of and courteous toward others. In
this nation of ours the ideal of ev
eryone should be to help in the work
of all. Therefore, let each boy try
to render service to others, and try
to do well every task that cornea to
his hands, big or little."
