I went back to my native Vermont to try to renew acquaintance which had been largely severed for a generation — a dar ing adventure and one I approached with a mixture of eagerness and of fear that I should fail in my cjuest. And just what, you ask, has this to do with the "foreign affairs" I which I am supposed to analyze? Well, that's a lair question and I plead guilty to straying a bit. However, the dictionary says "for eiyn" means, among other things, "irrelevant," and so I venture to go ahead with my story. And if you will come along, I suspect we may find a moral which will justify the aberration. I'm not quite sure what impelled me to make this trip, but I felt that I had to gel back to the old days among the mountains and lakes where my dad was a Methodist clergyman in various par ishes. I have the uncomfortable feeling that my missus called the turn when sho remarked: "Mac, this is a sign we are getting on in years. When folks ac quire gray hairs they begin to think about their .youth." Well — maybe. Anyway, the upshot of it all was that I finally piled into my car and wandered off on my own, since my lady was otherwise engaged. Thus it was that finlly I crossed Lake Champlain on the ferry from the New York side, and arrived in Northern Vermont amidst u burst of Indian summer which surely had been prepared for the "prodi eal. A glorious bla/.e ot color filled the countryside — an amazing medley of gold and browns and reds and yellows and greens. It looked as though Cod had been painting a variegated picture and had dropped his paJelte upside- down. That was an auspicious welcome, and !l w.is followed by a warmth of greeting throughout' my tour of tne state. We haven't space to go I 'Mln all my reunions, but among jtliem was one with Charles K. jC.rane, the Green Mountain philosopher who daily broadcasts his nev. s and views to Vermonters.

I didn't know anyone there, but the little church to which jny father had been attached still plays its part in the life of the community, as it has for scores of years. And you don't need to know people to encounter friendliness in Vermont — or in any other state of our grand union, as my experience has shown me. church of Hope, is led by Floyd Osborn and Ansley Gilbert. •Negro troops located in Hempstead District are Troop 111, Hope led by Booker T.
