would cut their huge paychecks by 15%.

It is mainly in the home that the heart is opened, habits are formed, the intellect is awakened, and the character is molded for good or evil.

 — Character is property.  It is the noblest of possessions.

– Paul W. Finch, The World’s Greatest Need, (Belfast, Ireland: Nelson & Knox, 1954), 23.
