ALEXANDER the Great organized the Macedonian Phalanx
and his army conquered the world; Caesar marshalled the
Roman Legions and his minions swept Europe. The impor-
lant changes in civilization have all been wrought by the piastic
hand of a master mind that could feel the powerful impulse of a
jjreat world as it frets and moans for able leadership. In every
ige progress has waited in attendance upon real strategic men
who could comprehend the sweep of human action and see world-
wide opportunities as they twinkle in tl>e distanoe.
A MACEDONIAN PHALANX
Let those who would weave at the loom of civilization and
thread the destinies of nations first organic the mighty forces
of progress, occupy the frontier of human thought and produce
fpecifications for the conquest of the w orld's commerce. Texas
needs great men.
