TWO MINUTE TALKS
by D. J. P. P. for
The Ann Arbor Savings Bank

W HEN the sun rose this morning it
brought with it the most modern day
you ever lived in. For ages this day
has patiently waited its turn to reign. Yester-
day had to come and go before today could
possibly exist. Yesterday and the day before
and so on for countless days and weeks and
years. Centuries have passed; men have lived
and worked and conquered and finally died;
empires have risen, held their sway and passed
on; monarchs and despots have ruled and gone
their way; republics have risen and held their
own - and through it all civilization has ad-
vanced until a few short hours ago the sun
broke over the horizon and brought with it
this, the modern day. Tempered by the hard-
ships of centuries, mellowed by all the wisdom
of the ages, invigorated by the youthfulness
of its first and only existence this day comes
to you for you to do with as you will.

Look well to this day. For someone it is
brimming with opportunity. Watch carefully,
for as sure as the sun rose this morning you
have opportunity in store for you. This day
may bring it to your door. Be ready, for only
a few short hours and this day, with all that
it brings and means, will pass on into the great
field of yesterdays. Once by, your opppor-
tunity is forever lost. No power in your com-
mand can turn the hands of time back one
single second or stop them in their progress for
as long a time.

Attractive separate skirts,

enjoyable.

When your opportunity arrives it will make
certain demands of you. Be ready to meet
them. If it requires brains, have them. If it
demands capital or goods, be ready to supply
the need. Prepare for the call for you may
expect to hear it. But above all, watch-look
well to this day.
