It was a time when dress codes were rapidly changing. I had been called into the high-school principal's office to receive an ultimatum on length of hair, mustache, and so forth. Either they go or you go, I was told. I was not to return to school until I had shorter hair and was cleanshaven. Having just begun my junior year, I felt this was a mighty blow to my aspirations for a scientific career. Here I was, just sixteen, being kicked out of high school for what seemed a senseless reason. I returned home feeling discouraged and hurt; there seemed no way to compromise with the principal's views.
I could fight this injustice; I would protest! But this is not exactly how I had been taught to deal with problems. I had been seriously studying the Bible and Science and Health. I opened, in my Bible, to the Sermon on the Mount. I read: "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven" (Matt. 5:43–45).
