tation, Faith—Christ Is Prince
Miss Inabelle Coleman, former High
Life adviser, spoke to tire girls at

hidden talents. “I do not think God
would give a person a soul and no
talent. Every girl has a talent, but she
often fails to develop it,” declared the
She told the story of a prince and a
princess. The princess’ kingdom is Life

Seven being a lucky number. Princess
Talent has seven little ladies-in-waiting.
First among these is Lnselfishness.
“Self-forgetfulness causes Princess Tal
ent to thrive.” Then comes the Good
Fairy of Good Health. No one can
find talent and successfully use it with
out physical aid. Purity is next. She
wears a dress of true blue. “Imagina
tion is Puritj-’s constant companion.
Then comes Courage, the real symbol
of the princess.
Meditation is one of the most essen
tial ladies. She is beautiful and sweet,
and thinks of her God and her God-
given purpose. Faith is clad in rose
and gold. Miss Coleman said, “Through
Faith and Trust we find our talent.”
The Prince of the kingdom of our
hearts must be Christ. tVhen Christ
enters. Princess Talent has been found.

These were some of the thoughts ex
