Also a sort of wry humor possesses me at the idea of the government summoning me to help settle these world shaking questions by the most primitive device known to man' has its implications. It is a confession of bankruptcy in intellectual leadership the world over.

"Those fuzzy faced boys who are at each other's throats whatever their nationality I cannot hate them. The only emotion they arouse is one of pity. I may have to kill some of them, but there will be no hate in my heart while I'm doing it And if they kill me? Well, I hope something blooms in the blood besides another crop of bayonets, I am not afraid of going out where the men play for keeps. While I do not like the game, if I must, I can play just as tough as any. "My wife has elected to hold down the farm while I am gone.

She wants to keep the cows. I am doubtful if she can manage by herself, but she is the type who will' give it a good try before she surrenders. "While the government is talking of rationing dairy products, the selective service is drafting any dairy farmer who isn't milking sixteen cows. We have only seven.

Then in a glade of maples I found my buck. Even after the kill, he seemed a part of the wild symphony; "We have listened to your radio programs. Keep the old kitchen viewpoint.

Some will not be impressed, but the world is going to need such views as yours, to bring it back to sanity. It will take many years to wash hate out of the world; many years before men will see more in a level field than terrain for operating tanks-, placing guns. Maybe from your kitchen you will be able to help." Truly, dear friend, I want to. Since I can't do it in your way, maybe I can in mine.

The widened stream with acolor unlike the one inspiring its name was filled from bank to bank with logs and broken pieces In a drift half a mile long, it was estimated. Smaii trees and bushes' at the water's edge were mowed down with a great deal of snapping and popping, The knife-like pier in the center of the bridge split the jam, allowing it to pass under with no more damage than a good shaking up.
