Emerson Berryhill There was, .a time when a boy[ could expect to inherit his fa- I thers workbench. If his father[ were a carpenter, the 'son looked ] forward to `the day when. he] would be ,a carpenter. The ,shoe- I make,r trained his son in .the ar of making shoes. The candle- maker, the wagonmaker --,all handed down their workbenches to their children. Times ,have changed! Today, the farmer's son is more likely to become an accountant than a farmer. The carpenter's boy will likely be an insurance sales- man. But, 1o they still inherit any- thing from their father? Of this you can be sure. Many of the father's traits and ch,araceris- tics will be with the boy all hi,s life. He will :act very much like his father. The f,ather may not give the boy a workbench, but he can ,be s.ure his son will be moulded by hi individual role as a father. Good or bad, Dad will influence .the boy's life.
