Mr. A. C. Virtue said that tho school and thn uluirch .wore not prov- ing real, constructive factors in thc character building of the boys to- day, boyss between the ages of ten and sixteen. The Sunday school exer- cised a somewhat more helpful influ- ence, hut that institution was not meeting the situation as it should. As a means or getting in heart and soul touch with the boy, Mr. Virtue urged tho closer association of fathers and sons. A spirit of chumship and comradeship should be established between the fathers and their sons. Where fathers did not interest them- selves sufficiently to take up this responsibility, the speaker offered the C.S.K.T. as a solution of thc problem. This movement was spreading, he said, and wherever the Tuxis boys were organized beneficial results wore noted. Following the address a lively dis- cussion took place.
