February is the mouth of birth-
days of great men and women. All
of their achievements have been
reached through some supreme ei-
fort. They did not waste their
time. Most of these lcuple who
have achieved great things have
sacrificed pleasures and comforts
of life to do it.
We may wonder some-times if
the effort is worth the reward we
receive, but perhaps we have
ucver stopped to think about the
full reward of sncces.
Success in any line of work does
not only bring wealth and "social
standingng It gives self-satisfac-t,ion,
which is a wonderful feeling. Have
you ever felt that you had done
your best. lt is not a wonderful
feeling? Perhaps you did nat'
succeed, but you still felt at east
in your own mind.
The most important factor in
success Lis choosing the right vo-
cation at an early time. It would
be intcrestingxto know how many
of the seniors know what they
rcally want to do in life. If they
can find what they really want to
do they can succeed in it.
There ure hundreds ol' jobs, but
there are also liundrc-ds of ap'
plicants for these jobs. The one
that can do the job best is the
one that will receive it: the one
who has prepared himself best.
Employers are looking for efficient
workers. They are also looking for
origlnal ideas, so if you are plau-
ning to apply for a job take some
original idea that willinterest your
