WASHINGTON
THE MAN
Oa this the anniversary of the
birth of "The Father of His Coun
try" It Is needless to repeat histori
cal facts or tales concerning the
life of our almost sainted hero, but
it Is fitting as well as inspiring to
look once again at Washington the
man.

In civil as well as military life,
preeminent among his
for the clearness and
soundness of his Judgement, for his
terfect moderation and
for the quiet dignity and Indomitable firmness with which he
pursued, every path which he had
deliberately chosen. The man had
keen sensibilities and strong pass
ions, but his power of self-comand nevtr failed him, and no act
of his life can be traced to personal
caprice, ambition, or resentment.
The absolute unselfishness
of
Washington Is probably the most
outstanding and admirable charac
teristic which he possessed. The
entire story of his life is one of a
continual subordination of things
he should liked to have done In
order that he might perform what
he felt wsu his duty. He sacrificed
everything to the betterment of the
country which he so dearly loved.
The man knew failure and disappointment; yet even when malignant plots were formed against his
reputation, at the time of constant
quarrels, rivalries, and Jealousies of
his subordinates, in the dark hour
of national ingratitude, he was always the same calm, wise, Just and
man, pursuing the
course which he believed to be right
without fear, or favor, or fanaticism. Even though he valued very
highly fortune, position, and reputation, at the command of duty he
was ready to risk and sacrifice all
of them.
Above all, he was in the highest
4ense a cultured gentleman and a
man of honor, carrying into public
life the severest standard of private
f:e wart

self-contr-

rn

single-mind-

ed

morals.
Although many have attempted
to pick flaws in his character,
Washington has never been criticized since his death so severely as
have many of our national figures.
Truly, being human, he was not
perfect and his entire life utterly
beyond reproach, but he exemplifies the highest in 60 many praiseworthy traits that any
short-comin-

gs

he might have had fall into
the shadows. He is, and rightly,
the model for every American
youth. But whether young or old,
