REAL friend is one who is sympathetic, encouraging and reliable. He is one to
whom a person feels he can go for real comfort, help or inspiration without being
laughed at or talked about when his back is turned. A friend shares pleasures as well
as troubles. He encourages another when he is on the right track, turns him to some-
thing better when he is on the wrong track and brings him out of the depths when he
is in despair. But friendship's greatest service is to understand, to sympathize and
Sometimes it seems that a person's best friend is his dog, for that animal wistfully
watches his master leave in the morning and eagerly awaits his return in the afternoon.
He seems to understand perfectly when his master is happy or downcast. His simple,
quiet way of offering sympathy may be more comforting than useless and meaningless
words. Everyone needs friendship. Without it a person soon sinks into the depths for
lack of encouragement and sympathy.
Not only in times of trouble, but also in times of success, one needs a friend. A
little encouragement accomplishes considerable when a fellow is just starting up the
hill of achievement. A friendship may give the man on the hilltop courage to climb
the next hill, even though he slip back into the depths between the climbs.
The best way to be sure of having friends is to be one. What kind of a friend
are you? Are you merely an acquaintance, or are you one who knows enough of life to
be able to understand others' feelings, failings and successes and to sympathize

Leaves are like men
Who live on this great earth,
They turn their backs on threatening storms
To dance in glee and mirth.
In spring they come out fresh and green
New to the ways of life,
By summer time they are full-sized
Half through this world of strife.
But Autumn is their mardi-gras
They gain the height of glory.
Before the icy winds begin
They'Ve almost told their story.
In youth they swing with grace and ease
And nimbly whirl around,
But in their age, like us, they shake,
And die upon che ground.
Through bluet fields the cattle pass,
Leaving the violets in the grass
Inviolate and all alone
Except for blossoms white as foam.
Grey horses plow a copper field,
To make its russet treasure yield
A barley crop or golden corn,
For later colts or calves new-born.
The ploughboy whistles like the lark,
Hailing the spring from dawn to dark.
The horses like his merry tune,
Recalling clover dells in June.
Along the river lies cowslip gold,
As if I-Ieaven's floor had grown too old,
And cracking near the weakened edges
Had dropped bright pieces on Earth's sedges.

THIS KIND lf IMMORTAIITY
ll SH ULD lLlIlKlE
HERE are two kinds of immortality. One is religious, the immortality of the soul.
Some people believe that after death one's spirit lives forever as a separate con-
scious personality. The other kind of immortality is everlasting fame. I should like
this kind of immortality. There are many different paths to this goal. The qualities
necessary are indomitable courage and great ability. I want to be a supreme master,
a genius who will contribute to the world something that will add to its sum of human
knowledge and happiness.
There are different kinds of geniuses on earth and different ways of becoming
immortal. The artist, like Michelangelo or Raphael, lives forever because he portrays
great truth in beauty. The writer, as Shakespeare or Milton, lives through the ages
for his originality and universality. The spiritual leaders, Christ, Mohammed, Buddha,
are immortal because they shape human destiny by teaching men how to live better
with themselves and their fellow beings. The scientists, Pasteur, Darwin and Koch, will
never be forgotten because of their services to mankind. Their wonderful work has
done something really beneficial for the world.
The qualities that made these men immortal are in their characters and abilities.
Indomitable courage, patience, painstaking care, bravery and perseverance are necessary.
All geniuses must have,.of course, great ability. Artistic works must have an 'tupliftf'
a signihcant meaning, to live forever. This meaning must be for all times and in all
places. Interest in human nature is indispensable to all artists, especially to the scientist.
Without the needs of mankind at heart, che scientist will not sacrifice life, fortune,
everything, to help mankind.
Immortality comes to scientists, artists, writers and 'spiritual leaders. If these have
the necessary qualities of character and ability, they will forever be remembered. To
me the scientist is one of the greatest artists because he aids in alleviating the sufferings
of humanity and cuts throughmdarkness to discover new brilliant light. I should like to
be a genius, a scientist, because I want to do something to improve the world.
