…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 not lose their individuality in a crowd;
…who will be as honest in small things as in great things;
…who will make no compromise with wrong;
…who will not say they do it “because everybody else does it”;
…who are true to their friends in adversity as well as in prosperity;
…who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning and hardheadedness are the best qualities for winning success;
…who are not afraid or ashamed to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;
…who can say “no” with emphasis even if all the rest of the world says “yes”;
…whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires.
Our country is in great need of such men as we lurch from one crisis to the next. The times call for men who are motivated by the highest and the most noble ideals.
Men who are eager to give a whole lot more than they receive. Great men who are quiet in their greatness and whose mission is to serve, not to be served.
Men of faith who are not gods unto themselves. Men who are humble in the greatness.
Men whose lives reflect the words they speak. Men who do not fear the wrath of God because of the righteous life they live. Men who are set in their determination to do what is right even if it costs them dearly.
And, finally, men who are comfortable with themselves and their manhood.
