Rector Prefers Bad Boys For Sunday School Pupils

Connecticut Pastor Says There is More Hope of Making a Good Citizen of Him Than His Opposite.

Middletown, Conn., Feb. 25.–The Rev. George B. Gilbert, rector of Christ’s Episcopal church in this city, has been making a study of the boy problem and announces that there is really more hope of developing the typical bad boy than the typical good boy into a useful citizen.

Mr. Gilbert prefers bad boys for Sunday school pupils and the more devilry they display the more hope he has of them.

It was announced today that he has rented a fifty acre farm, bordering on a small lake, and will turn it into a practical plant for making bad boys into useful citizens.– From The Chicago Daily Tribune, Feb. 26, 1910.
