A BUSINESS MAN'S TESTI-
THF modern Sunday school
movement has always been
distinguished by the large number
of laymen who have been its chief
leaders and supporters. Mention
has been made of Mr. John D
Rockefeller, John Wanamaker, E.
K. Warren, H. J. Heinz and others.
One is bewildered by this masb of
testimony as to the value of the
Sunday school, its contribution to
individual lives and its hold upon
men who rank very high in the
business world. There has receut-
ly come under the writer's eye a
letter which he is impelled to
quote. It is from the president of
a great cereal manufacturing com-
pany of St. Louis, Mr Danl'o. ih,
who is greatly interested in the r ;c-
ondary or older boys' work ami has
liberally supported the sum 'ier
training school at Lake Geneva,
Wis. He says. "As a boy tilt .ig-
gest man I knew was my Siifday
school superintendent. He inndo
the greatest impression upon siy
life. The biggest gain since has
been in teaching and working in
the Sunday school. The inspiration
of such men as Heinz and Wana-
maker has confirmed me in my de-
cision that as long as I can hold
my job in the Sunday school you
will find mt> right there."
Mr. Danforth is one who has
come to realize that it meana far
more to reach and transform u boy
plus a life than to reach a roan
without a life of sorvice to follow.
Judgo Fawcett of the New Vcvk
juvenile court, a life long Sunday
school man, says that he had naver
had to sentence as a "first offend-
er," a boy who was a faithful, reg-
ular Sunday school attendant.
The late Mr. Lindsey Woodcock,
vice-president and general mana-
ger of the Marshall Field retail
store of Chicago, once said: '-We
always feel fairly confident of the
future of any boy who comes into
our etrploy when we know that he
is a Sunday school boy." These
men are not moved by sentimental
and emotional appeals, but their
hidgment rests upon the practical
material contribution that the Sun
day schools are making to tho
I >'ot'.th of our land.
