There are two distinct types of
character—the weak and the strong.
From one point of view the develop-
ment of character is never complete,
but an individual who has or has ac-
quired a weak character, does not
make much progress in the world. He
does not gain worthy and influential
friends and companions, he is gener-
ally of no great value to humanity.
Those of strong character who have
worthy and noble ideals before them
are of benefit to the world. We look
at the great politicians and financiers,
and leaders of today as well as of the
past. Do they not posses a strong
character? Jesus, the greatest of al
men, was he not of a strong cLoracq
ter? Let us, then, work for a noble
character to gain our ideals. Now in
our youth, in the springtime of our
lives is the time to develop such a
character. We as student*- of Clifton
College should strive to do so for the
benefit of our college as well
as self. For Clifton College is re-
flected through and judged by our
character and conduct.—By M. L. S.

shouted Travis, the orator. “He looked
neither to the right nor the left but
pressed forward with definite pur-
pose. Neither friend nor foe couid de-
lay him, nor turn him from his course.
All who crossed his path did so at
their peril. What would you call such
a man?” He paused for effect. Came
a knowing voice from the rear: “I’d
call him a truck driver.”
“Quick,” exclaimed Ruth Ekrut as
she hurried into a grocery store. “Give
me a bag of flour, a half dozen eggs,
a pound of butter, and a bottle of
vinegar. I want to make a train.
