citizen, as one who had a princi

interest of people and community
above selfish Interests.
"A good citizen is one who liva
at peace with his neighbor, and the
world," he continued. "To be a
good citizen, one should be pro
gressive and aggressive, and pos

The speaker then reminded his
audience that while it was a little

citizens exercise the right to voto
and vote for the individual who has
the greatest character."
Rev. Mr. Wall then urged that
