those kind, considerate, attentive, unselfish, benevolent acts 
that cultivate and strengthen the moral nature; and that the 
successful doing of all these things brings into activity man's 
will powers and thus tends to the evolution of a high type of 
manhood which should be the ultimate end of human effort. 
The Chairman: It has been the custom in the past, and es- 
pecially when we have had such an able President's address, 
for the chair to appoint a committee on the President's address,

you ever look at cans in which milk was carried to the factory? 
I have. I have taken my thumb and scraped around on the 
edges or just above where the top of the milk comes. I don't 
know what it was that I scraped off, but it was something that 
looked kind of yellow or green. Do you suppose there is a 
creamery in the state of Wisconsin where some man does not
