  Ladies and Gentlemen. my topic today is "Honesty".

  As a correspondent of the Oingdao Morning News. I visited Dr. James Gilman. the President of the International Committee for Marco Polo Studies in England. I have a picture of James and 1 looking at a dragon's tooth. This is a true story.

  years ago. James lived in Oingdao. Then he was only 5 years old. He often visited the Aquarium and was fascinated by a creature on display there, which he thought was a dragon. He was afraid of its sharp teeth and wanted one to keep as a treasure.

  In the late 1930s, when the Japanese occupied Oingdao. his family had to leave. On his last day in Oingdao* he ran to the Aquarium and pulled out one of the teeth from the dragon's mouth.

  He kept the tooth for the next 65 years, but the feeling of guilt at having stolen it was there in the background all through his life. It was always on his conscience, and ihe feeling intensified as he became older. Finally he decided to put right hes childish error. In 2002. he visited Oingdao and returned it to the Aquarium with his sincere apologies. He received a warm welcome.

  When James visited Oingdao, I accompanied him throughout his stay and reported on his visit. I was deeply touched by his honesty. It has taught me a lot. I think to err is human. The important thing is to have the courage to admit and corrcct one's error.

  Honesty is a vital quality of human behavior. So we shoulJ try to keep an honest mind in everything wc say and do. I would like to say to all of my friends. "Let's Ik* honest people of good moral character." Thank you.
