A Real Man
A real man never talks about

ought to have, and all that All
that he claims is the right to live
and play the man.
A real man is just as honest
alone in the dark, in his own room,
as he is in public. A real man
does not want pulls, tips and favors.
He wants work and honest wages.
A real man is loyal to his friends
and guards their reputation as his
own, . j
A real man is dependable. His

A real man does not want some
thing for nothing, so the "get-rich-

A real man never hunts danger.
