Other funds are water works, What do we need most? Well, one day I was listening to a group of arm chair experts say what they thoug t he VIFs of the world should do. Finally, one woman, rich in years and experience, began shaking her head as they takej glibly of training and education. At last she cut in with a particularly trenchant remark: "Seems to me that what £44.200; mi_tary>Se«r; we really need to settle the mess is a few men with backbones!" She was so right. That is just what we do n?ed today. Men and women with, backbones. Who have the self-respect yay improvement, $4,150; main- to stand upright in all thing,.

Men and women with backbone enough to tell the truth not unkindjy, but because they makei it a habit to be accurate, to be honest both with themselves and others. Men and women with backbone enough not to listen to rumor or gossip or slander. Who have backbones enough to say, "I'm sorry, but my only interest is in facts. What is the sources of your story?" Men and women with backbone enough to be friend'y, to extend a helping hand to those who are in need, to say the understanding word to those who are hurt at re rt, to give of themselves without thought of return. Men and women with backbone enough to praise even their woist enemy when he or she does the right thing or does some one thing exceedingly well. Men and women with backbone enough to be loyal. So loyal to their friends that they will not permit 'them to be criticized-without-a.-protest. So loyal to their country that they will not sit idly by when little people disparage it or those in authority. So loyal to their God that,they will not stay in the presence of those who talk evil. Men and women with backbone enough to have self- respect. Too much self-respect to do a small ac'ion, or mace a snide remark. Who try to live up to the best that is in them, rather than down to the worst. Those are the kind of men and women we need today. And where do the backboards come in?
