By Their Fruits You Shall Know
How often has not the truth of this
Biblical proverb been proved? 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
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
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

' 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-
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
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.
Life is like an ocean wave
Which fiows then ebbs away.
Death is like a scented flower
If souls are cleansed each day.
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,
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,
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
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
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.
