Those who have the truth in their hearts are always openhearted, helping where it is necessary. They lead out, and others imitate their example. If there are some who should have the benefit of the school, but who cannot pay full price for their tuition, let the churches show their liberality by helping them.
Besides this, in each conference a fund should be raised to lend to worthy poor students who desire to give themselves to the missionary work; and in some cases they should even receive donations. When the Battle Creek College was first started, there was a fund placed in the Review and Herald office for the benefit of those who
wished to obtain an education but had not the means.
This was used by several students until they could get a
good start; then from their earnings they would replace
what they had drawn, so that others might be benefited
by the fund. The youth should have it plainly set before
them that they must work their own way as far as
possible and thus partly defray their expenses. That which
costs little will be appreciated little. But that which costs
a price somewhere near its real value will be estimated
