Young men may be equally sure that girls who are the best daughters and' sisters will be ihe best wives. If a young mfin, before he is married; is destitute of those affec- tions and principles which come out in filiant obedience, courtesy, and a controlling sense of duty, he will be equally destitute of them after he is married. The mere fact of wedlock will not change the fundamental prin- ciples of his nature, He will be es- sentially the ame human being after marriage-or, at least, after the hon- eymoonthat he was before it, The same principles hold true with regard to women.

"One who is acquainted with the traditional social teachings of the Church instinctively favors the Plumb Plan of railway operation, rather than immediate operation by the State. Such a person realizes the opportuni- ty for individual development and in- dividual control of one's own life and enviromnent which are inherent in the Plumb Plan, and ho fears the bureaucracy and the danger to indi- vidual freedom and initiative which seems to be inherent in State opera- tion.
