These beautiful spring days always create a natural feeling for play, and pupils often remain on the streets near the schools, and congregate on the public square to take part in the various games. If parents wish their children to take part in these games after school hours, or for other reasons do not need them at home, a written statement to that effect will be required.

Honesty is the best policy", may be true, but it places honesty on too low a plane, lie is a more honest man who takes for his standard the commandments, Thou shall not steal". "Thou shall not bear false witness". In our country we need states men, we need patriot citizens, but I am not sure that we have a piace for the politician. , The statesman whether in office or out of office seeks the welfare of his country. The politician seeks first his own welfare, then that of his political ring, then that of the special interests that keep him in office. The policy man keeps on the popular side, invariably fights for the pillow on top. It takes manhood and womanhood to ttand with the few for righteousness, against the many for corruption, with the few for freedom against the many for tyranny. Real men and women stand for principle, not for policy. Let conviction be supreme. We want men and women who will not swerve in allegiance to truth or duty; who shall stand even though alone for brotherhood, righteousness and God.
