We know that about us are many poison- ous iniduences. Therefore we must necessarily examine carefully not only those things which sustain the life of the body, but also those which influence our moral life, such a lit- erature and our associates. Unless we keep a constant watch, our fruits by which we are judged by our fel- low men may prove to be only chaff, dross, and leaves. As Catholics we are under moral obligation not only to bear fruit, but we must be constantly bearing good fruit. No doubt it seems we are not aware of it, nevertheless every thought, every word, and every deed is that seed, which will finally spring up and bring forth its fruit. Whether the fruit which we produce will be good or bad depends upon ourselves as human beings with intellect and will. llow many times have we not been urged by our Right Reverend Bishop to make the most of our opportun- ities? That is to say, to do that which our conscience tells us and what we know to be right. If in our dealings with our fellow men we would ob- serve the first requisite 5 i. e., to mind our own business, we would always beneht somebody, because every kind act brings forth good fruit. About making the most of our opportun- ities, Bacon says: "Do not despise any opportunity because it is small. The way to make an opportunity great is to take hold of it and use it." In order to produce good fruit, we are obliged to have noble and elevat- ing ideals, i. e., our soul's aspiration should be that which is most worthy of itself and of its last end-God. "The situation that has not its ideal," says Carlyle, "was never yet occupied by man." Let us then strive for high ideals and make, as the Bishop said, the most of our opportunities and let us cultivate the talents God has given us. Finally, let us bring forth such fruit that our fellow men may be bet- ter for our having come in contact with them.

' THE ECHO 13 Perhaps the love of autumn and of that sport which is most typical of it -nut gathering-is nowhere so strong as in the heart of a fourteen- year-old lad. If, perchance I meet a younger boy than I, engaged in nut seeking, I cannot foreloear a pleasant greeting, and if the youngster is will- ing-a little conversation. Having no destination myself, we would go where he wished-ambling along together-picking nuts and dis- cussing everything in the woods. Before a wide stretching view from a hill top we stop and gaze with delight for a moment or two--no words be- tween us, perhaps, but yet we under- stand. N0 lad who indulges in this pas- time does it merely for the profit to be derived from it-if he does and one tries to become his companion it will be a difficult and unpleasant task. Boys, generally, see more than others and with different eyes. What young lad but enjoys the stroll in among the trees more than the nut feast after- ward? How many of them gather nuts diligently and even husk them under a wide-spreading tree and then through the whole winter eat only a tenth perhaps of what they have stored? The enjoyment is in the autumn and in the woods. No grown-up pleasure can compare with that a boy, in his early teens, can get from this quiet sport so useful in its aim and so pleasant in its practice. -Edwin O'NeiZZ, '23. Likeness Life is like an ocean wave Which fiows then ebbs away. Death is like a scented flower If souls are cleansed each day. -T. S. The Days of Real Sport Boys, be goodg Oh boys be right, Don't feel itchy for a fight. Though black rings about his eyes, Johnny Jones his deed denies. But the teacher wants to know Why no duties he can show. Johnny says with happy glee, Pardon, teacher, "I couldn't see." Then the class begins to roar While the teacher's getting sore, Every task without delay With some duty he must pay. Johnny now heaves heavy sighs For the trouble has left his eyes, Long he writes, for well he knows, That, unpunished nothing goes. Soon the teacher grew real nice To disgust John with his vice, Tells him how his terrible ways Brings for him unhappy days, -M. S. Just Songs Keep the home fires burning In the cottage by the sea, Some day I'll wander back again, Then you'll remember me. When the harvest days are over And the swallows homeward fly, We'll listen to the mocking bird And let the rest of the world go by. Remember. me to all at home Until we meet again, Keep the sunshine in your smile, And sing that sweet refrain. Ah, I have sighed to rest me When the lights are low, On the road to home sweet home Where the black eyed Susans grow. -James Belof, '23, Contrast Muggy days are my delight, And rainy days and soggy soil Are just what make my heart feel light For then I can enjoy my toil, -George McG1'atlz, 'QL

THE ECHO 15 The Parents' Duty The desire of the boy or girl to enter a religious order or congrega- tion should not be treated as a mat- ter of parental self-will, subject to the cold calculations of worldly prudence. There is question here of making or marring the fortunes of an immortal soulg in such a crisis there can be no justification for mak- ing objections founded on the maxims of interested self-seeking. All parents should understand-right thinking ones do understand-that the ex- pressed desire of a son or daughter to join a religious congregation springs ordinarily from motives of supernatural charity. Such a desire, therefore, is not a passing fancy or a sign of mere youthful enthusiasmg it is an inspiration from on high, a movement of the Holy Spirit sweetly urging the soul to follow the path of evangelical perfection. Far from opposing the Divine Will thus made' known, wise parents will readily make the sacrifice which God demands of them. He will compensate them for this deed in granting to them and their beloved ones the hundredfold of blessings to those who leave father and mother to follow in the footsteps of Christ's privileged companions. Hours of Study It is probably the theory of most school boys that a few hours study a week will suffice, but are they sure it will. The average length of required study in school is about forty min- utes. This is not enough unless the student does considerable study at home. The length of study any senior needs will vary from three and a half to five hours a day. He cannot do his work satisfactorily in any less no matter how bright he may be. It is only reasonable to expect that every student spend as much time in prepa- ration of lesson as he spends in the recitation of the same. This prepa- ration is not provided for during school hours. The study period in school is set aside so that the student is able to review what he has pre- pared at home. It is not a time for original study much less a time for copying someone else's work. If a student is worthy of the name he will do his home tasks and study his les- sons conscientiously. If he has not the backbone to do this of his own ac- cord, his parents-if they have the boy's best interests at heart-will see to it that the boy is at home and that nothing wfill interfere with his get- ting his lessons. If parents would see to it that their sons bring a reason- able number of books home-it is not enough for boys to take books from the study hall-each night, and then see to it that the books are used at home, there would be less complain- ing when reports go home and less disappointment when promotions take place next June. -John Hzfguenard, '23, A Word About Our Advertisers At the close of the year and espe- cially at this blessed Christmas sea- son, we wish to express our sincere thanks to our advertisers.. We are deeply indebted to them for their generous co-operation, and we ask our readers to express their apprecia- tion by patronizing them and show- ing that an advertisement in THE ECHO is profitable to them. They de- serve this consideration from you be- cause it is only through them that the publication of THE ECHO is made Possible. "Patromfze our advertisers."
