Manners and Conduct in School and Out

FOREWORD

"The supreme business of the school is to develop a sense of justice, the power of initiative, independence of character, correct social and civic habits, and the ability to coöperate toward the common good."--Dr. Frank Crane.

How do you develop correct social habits, the habits of a gentleman or a lady?

You develop correct social habits just as you develop correct habits in playing ball, or in swimming,--you discover the rules; then you practise, practise, practise. A good general rule is, Do what a kind heart prompts; for,

    Politeness is to do and say
    The kindest thing in the kindest way.

We earnestly hope this little book may help girls and boys to become happier, more agreeable, and more effective citizens.
