WHAT THREE NATIONS SAY OF HIM
U. S. A.
He has a most forceful personality, swaying his hearers repeatedly from tears to laughter by his wonderful eloquence. Captain Upton makes good citizens of the children of the individual community, and he makes better citizens of the adults who have the opportunity to help the children.—

His lecture was one of the most worth while in years. He is a play-ground leader of wide experience. He urged the conservation of the boy and girl life and interest in their welfare as the great community and social asset.—
Anderson (S. C.) News.
Captain Upton is virile in appearance and his address holds his hearers from the beginning of his lecture. While he spoke the audience was carried forward by a magnetic personality, either laughing or well nigh weeping at his drolleries or his sentimentalities. His main message was that love is a driving force that keeps the young man playing the best game instead of drifting, because there is the esteem of no one but his own at stake. His concluding plea was his sympathy for the boys and girls of the community, and the applause was loud and continuous.—

A born humorist, 'Dinnie,' as he is popularly known on two continents to thousands of kiddies, has that most happy trait of a worthwhile speaker of putting his audience in the best of humor. The ripple of mirth ebbs and flows as gently and with the rhythm of waves on a calm day beating on the seashore. At times his hearers roar outright. And then 'Dinnie,' as if by magic wand changes all this. There is something akin to a big lump that rises in his hearers' throats, and Dinnie has got in one of his home truths.—
