Byyno means is talent rare in the world, nor is 6?'V8I1.g'9I11l1.S: Bfut who can trust 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- ment toward th t d b it '. l ' ' ' V ' ' 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.
