KEEP us, O God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in work, in deed. Let
us be done with fault finding and leave off self seeking. May we put away all pretenses and meet each other face to face — without self-pity and without prejudice. May we never be hasty in judgment, and always generous.
Let us take time for all things, make us to grow calm, serene and gentle. Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straightforward and unafraid. Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences; that in the big things of life we are as one.
AND may we strive to touch and to know the great common woman's heart of us all; and, O Lord God, let us not forget to be kind.
—Mary Stuart.

"There are three kinds of people in the world. The Cants, the Wonts and the Wills.
The Cants fail in everything;
The Wonts oppose everything;
The Wills accomplish everything."
Salute to the Flag
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands. One Nation, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.”
The American's Creed
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable, established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its Laws; to respect its Flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

"When do we meet with our husbands.
The mighty, the strong, the great?
Why, down at the Park where the meadowlark Sings to his charming mate.
So bring your "date” October 8th,
Be he skinny, freckled or fair,
For mysteries rare await you there And a picnic feast we'll share.”

THE TREE OF POETRY Only its blossoms are palpable—ivory petals Cupping the essence of dream for waking delight;

Closing Prayer
We bring to you, dear Father, the fabric of high purpose we have woven in the days just past. Perchance in our lack of skill and ignorance, we have knotted some threads and others have been tangled; yet Thou knowest we want to follow the pattern Thou has set for us; and if Thou dost find interwoven some scarlet threads of sacrifice, a blue strand of courage and mayhap a tiny silver line of faith running through, wilt Thou take it all, O Master Weaver, and make it flawless and beautiful in Thy sight.
AND as we now go our separate paths, O Father, make us to know that every road, each tiny trail, under Thy guidance, leadeth into the Broad Highway of Thy Love. For the sake of Christ, Thy Holy Son.
—Betty Manroe Sipple.
