DUTY O l TY and conscience are very closely related ; conscience, good or bad, prompts one to do or not to do his or her duty. Everyone, rich and poor alike, has some duty to perform and we are held responsible for this duty according to our ability. A dutiful man does not live for himself alone, but for others as well. Duty well done adopts a larger creed and a loftier code, and is usually performed cjuietly — not looking for applause and flattering comments. It is our duty to be honest and truthful. Also it is our duty to guard against any form of bribery, and the man who can be bought is a traitor to civilization and the briber is equally as despicable. It is true that it takes courage to perform one’s duty, but valor is a part of duty. Sacrihces are being made daily among men who endea or to discharge their duty to the fullest degree. The captain is always the last to leave the sinking ship; the soldier looks death in the face without flinching; missionaries brave the dangers and hardships of heathen lands; all leaders shoulder the responsibilities of their followers — all these are examples of duty. And now, class-mates, throughout the game of life it is your honest and sincere duty to make the most of the education you have acquired, and end your active days with the supreme con- solation of duty well done. Edgar Carrico, ’25. 62

time ago? How foolish you were! “Never more shall I mur- mer under my tiny burden,” you whisper. You look for many minutes over the rolling plains of green, the almost minute darker patches of trees, the waters — tiny silvery serpents run- ning to the sea, and then the minute specks — man’s habitation. You heave a heavy sigh from the bottom of your heart when the little silent messengers of sun and shadow whisper, “’Tis time to return.” Onward down the hills you trudge picking up your burdens with renewed courage and your heart singing a paean of joy as you go. Margaret Brewer, ’25. 61

1 H E GIRL OF TODAY do the majority of the pcojilc condemn and speak so n uch harm of the girl of today? V ' hy don’t they study the girl a little more before the exj:ress their opinion and see if they don’t find more good than harmful things to say about her. ! think if we would only take a litt’e more time to consider her good qualities we would not haA c any spare time for criticism. Let’s do a little analyz.ing of the girl of today and see if her way of li ing isn’t an improvement o -er the ways of the older generations. We vill take the three main faults that most people criticize her for. First, she bobs her hair; well it’s more con- A cnient, it’s more sanitary, and it’s more becoming. But some say, “Yes, but she bobbed it only for style’s sake;’’ probably she did, and I guess our grandm.others wore rats for the same reason, amd I am sure they weren’t cither healthy or convenient. Next, her clothes are — well, there is no fit or shape to them and there is no over supply of material in them. That is all true, they are not so heavy, long, and tight, so as to hinder proper circulation, and they are not long enough to be used as a vacuum cleaner to gather up the dirt that might be in their path. d he last criticism is that she is very unladylike. Why? Be- cause she takes an active part in all healthy outdoor e.cercises she can, such as swimming, skating, basket ball, running the car, etc. I guess she should be sitting by the fire, in an air- tight house, piecing a quilt. If she did this rouge would have to take the place of the natural coloring in her checks. I want to mention the education of the girl of today. Did you ever see larger graduating clas.ses than those of the present time, and such oung girls too; the average is about scv ' enteen or eighteen. Those classes of yesterday were not so young and the a crage then was from twenty to twenty-fi ' e. Then, too, the majority of the class are not willing to stop with a high school education, but strive on and study until they are capable of entering into the line of work they have chosen as their vocation. So now, you who may have criticized, admit that you have judged her too harshly, and let’s give three cheers for that Avonderful creature so full of life and ambition — the girl of today. Marie Hardy, ’25. 63
