We need men...
...who cannot be bought.
...whose word is their bond.
...who put character above wealth.
...who possess opinions and a will.
...who are larger than their vocations.
...who do not hesitate to take chances.
...who will make no compromise with wrong.
...who will not lose their individuality in a crowd.
...who will be as honest in small things as in great things.
...who will not say they do it--because everybody else does it.
...whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires.
...who give thirty-six inches to the yard and thirty-two quarts to the bushel.
...who will not have one brand of honesty for business purposes and another for private life.
...who are true to their friends through good report and evil report, in adversity as well as in prosperity.
...who do not believe that shrewdness, sharpness, cunning, and long-headedness are the best qualities for winning success.
...who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular, who can say "no" with emphasis, although all the rest of the world says "yes."
