"William James said 'The great use of life is to spend it for something that outlasts it.' Dr. Stewart told the grad- uates it is imperative they lis- ten to the right people. "Get reliable advice." The Pilgrim in Bunyan's tale fell into the "Slough of Des- pond" and then became a pri- Soner in Doubting Castle through heeding bad advice. Dr. Stewart said a forgotten quality today is integrity. He urged the students to have in- tegrity of character and inte- grity of purpose. TO GO ALONG "There is too much tendency today to go along with the he said. "There is too much tendency to go along with the crowd, to go along with the popular trend and not to take a stand on issues."

Other points touched on by Dr. Stewart: Persistence of purpose des- pite discouragement is impor- tant. Need of divine guidance and encouragement. A dimension that needs emphasis among young people today. Example of Abraham Lin- coln: Two business failures, one election defeat and a ner- vous breakdown by the age of 27. (He had lost his mother when he was 11 years of He had seven more elec- tion defeats, including his try for the vice-presidency and U.S. Senate but Lincoln became president at the age of 51. Pursuing happiness or con- tentment is the right way. It comes not from receiving but from giving a state of mind that depends on YOU. We make ourselves happy or unhappy by our attitude to- ward ourselves, our work, our neighbors and our world.

By AUDREY MARTIN Special Correspondent PICTURE BUTTE If it's recreation you are interested in, there is one man in our town who can inspire you to action. Morley Roelofs, recreation director for the north area of the County of Lethbridge, makes it quite clear he hasn't been hired for the purpose of leadership or sports direct- ing.

Not only did the wo- men who completed the course hold an art show in 'the hall, but later it was discovered that much of the background scenery for the Picture Butte High School play was paint- ed by one of the graduates of the painting course. ''We want people to be so interested in what they've says Morley, they'll be willing to use it profitably in the community and teach others the craft, sport, or whatever." Morley is well qualified for his work. Born and raised at Leth- bridge, his interests included curling and badminton, and a girl named Susan.

Upon completion, and after his marriage to Susan, he transferred to Eastern Wash- ington State College in Chen- ey, Wash., where after two years he received his bache- lor of arts in parks and rec- reation administration. One year of graduate work followed at Brigham Young University, Provost, Utah, where he completed his mas- ter's degree in recreation education.
