Business Honesty

“It is one of the unsolved mysteries that some evil genius can captivate a man’s mind and alluringly suggest that the rules of a fair game may be beaten and success and positive reached by a short cut. Those who have tested the delusion, and failed, are among the human tragedies on every hand, which call to the passerby and should impel them to pause and ponder.

“Honesty and fairness can not be beaten in the commercial game, for a delusion is a delusion and a lie is a lie. No matter how elusively they may be –decked. There may be hints and trappings of success; there may be appearances of reward for questionable practices, and there may be suggestions of prosperity, but the testimony of a good conscience, the peace from work well done, the consciousness of manliness that takes from no one more than is his due, and his ability to step into the great unknown with fearless confidence are absent.

“WE PIN OUR FAITH TO THE HONEST GAME and it is definitely our responsibility in the important work of conservation to sound the caution and keep the eyes of men upon the inflexible rules of the eternal verities.”
