talent and genius unless it is -ba.sed on veracity? It is this quality ln one s character
which commands respect, in fact, it is -the foundation of ali personal ence-ellence.
Rectitude is Htruth in action", and no one denies that a man who can be relied upon
i.s the one to whom success awaits. "His reliability becomes a passport to the general
esteem and confidence of mankind." 0 u
The -type of character one builds depends very much upon the environment in
which he is placed. Therefore I say that the young man or woman who has the en-
vironmental influence of a ch-urch school has more advantage than the one who is
placed in a state school. A Christian school holds up higher morals, promotes spirit-
uality, and, because of 'her not participating freely in inter-scholastic activi-ties, gives
her students the greater chance of making good in their educational pursuits.
The truly great person has become great, not by his- constant th-ought and achieve-

a en , u 1-n his youth, h-e, like Daniel of old, 'purpose-d in his
heart" to have a character above reproach. Surely greaftness is not cre-dited to rank,
for many of our great persons were of lowly birthg not to wealth, for the inheritance
of not a few 'has been p-overtvg not to talents, for men of g-en-ius are very few."
Truth and morality are the backbone of character. A sad fact i-t is that many
studentsnwho entered some of -our modern colleges and universities h-ave graduated with
their faith in the !B1ble completely .shattered because their teachers regarded the
Sacred Book merely as -a. code of ethics, or a fictitious tale. True they may have
gained heights intellectually. but if that education has not been the ineans of enrich-
ing gheir character, -t-heir education has been 'a. failure. A
