JUNIOR PLEDGE

                 I pledge my loyalty
          To the Junior Clubwomen
                                      By doing better than ever before
             What work I have to do,
By being prompt, honest, courteous,
                               By living each day, trying to accomplish something,
                 Not merely to exist.
                                                                                  -Helen Cheney

A COLLECT FOR WOMEN

    Keep us, oh God, from pettiness,
Let us be large in thought, in work, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding
          And leave off self-seeking.

May we put away all pretenses
               And meet each other face to face;
Without self-pity and without prejudice.

May we never be hasty in judgement
And always generous.

Let us take time for all things,
Make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.

Teach us to put into action our better impulses,
Straightforward and unafraid.

Grant that we may realize it is the little things
That create differences,
That in the big things of life we are at one.

And may we strive to touch and to know the great,
Common, human heart of us all;
And oh Lord God, let us forget not to be kind.
