The idea of ser- vice must bo Instilled In order to im- prove the standard of citizenship and a great responsibility lies upon the I shoulders of all those engaged in (hoys' work. It is those {already engaged In thin unselfish line of. work to still, greater efforts and to increase their interest and enthus- iasm that this banquet is being held.

An ounce of training when young Is worth a pound ot prohibitive legislation and other remedies later.

Let us all pull to- gether for greater numbers of work- era, greater enthusiasm and above all greater results In this lino of work.
