INK in my VEINS' *"" MIAA QI6S •y MARIAN INMAN Today I atn saddened with the new* of the death, through an accident, of the little grandson of my friends the Eldon tlosenes of Madrid. My heart goes out to them tnd the young parents in this their -hour of sorrow. It takes a great faith to accept and try to understand why these things happen to us and just what plan God has in store for us. But we must humbly accept the cross Me gives us to carry. There is a reason. Gold must be tried by fire. Cedars must have the wind. in Oregon Thi» morning whtn I w«nt to my biMitMnt, I into anklt dttp wattr.

June has gone by so fast and I am still nursing my summer cold. Not a cold all winter and now. this. Looking back over what I have written so far this morning I seem to be in a state of griping. Really things aren't as bad as I sound and I'll soon snap out of it. I feel better just to have sounded off. Duo to all tho rain wo havo had tho smoko troos that I thought had wintor killod aro lush and groon.

This rain has been good for many bushes and shrubs that looked pretty sick earlier. When you read this column, Independence Day, July 4, 1967, will be past. The Declaration of Independence is with(jut doubt of the most extraordinary nature both with regard , to sentiment and language: 1 We have come a long way since tho declaration was first signed and many times havo reinterpreted its moaning «nd have amended it but the basics still hold true and we cannot supply the old and tried with too many things now and temporary. Ponton — Mrs. Settm Godden, 56, Afltoria, Ore.* died at the hospital after an apparent heart attack eight hour* earlier Mrs. Godden was born In Algona, March 12, 1911, daughter of August and Martha Kressen Meyer. She received her education in Iowa and had lived here until 12 and a half yean ago when she moved to Astoria, Ore,, with her family. She had been employed as a nurses aide at the St. Mary and Columbia hospitals there. March 23, 1946 she was married to James W. Godden at Algona. He survives as does two sons Richard 1 and James, Astoria; four daughters Mrs. Kenneth (Rae Jean) Handsaker, Roberts, Wis.; Joyce Godden, Marlene Godden and Patricia Godden, all of Astoria; three brothers William Meyer, Algona, Martin Meyer, Burt, and Ferdinand Meyer, Waterloo; five sisters Mrs. William (Matilda) Elmers, Mrs. Merle (Edna) Culbertson, Ringsted; Mrs. Emil (Delia) Elmers, Fairmont; Mrs. Tom (Lydia) Frankl, Algona; and Mrs. Roland (Alma) Rehmer, Chester, 111., and two grandchildren. Married at St. Cecelia's "What was good enough for my Father," is an ex- ELECTION '* HELD pression used often. "What was good enough for my father is .•> ,p ne ^ c ^ u ^ me ^ Tuesday good enough for rr.e," may be poor philosophy when it comes afternoon with Mrs. Lloyd o plumbing, school systems, teacher's salaries, .roads, etc., but s a .very good brake upon our too reckless c.nd wasteful head- ong living, and many things that were gcod enough for our athers would recapture the meditative faith and sincerity of vorship which those slower ways encouraged. . If we would only strike a happy medium' wo could sur« 'ive the onrush of the present and temper it with a bit of tho past. Being human beings our clay foot shoe through too often. , We seem to be following the path of many proud na- ions of the past who became so, sure of themselves, so reek- ess in spending, so steeped in crime and immorality that they aecame divided and weak and were easy prey to the enemy. "God grants liberty only to those who love it end aro ilways ready to guard and defend it. Let our object be our jcountry. And by the blessing of God, may our country itself i become a vast and splendid monument, not of oppression and terror, but of wisdom, of peace, and of liberty, upon which tho world may gaze with admiration forever." It has been said that the world is hungry for what c have, not only for wealth like ours, but also for the freedom nd enterprise that produced our wealth. God has sown that unger for freedom in every human heart— and , then He ilanted the wheat of freedom here in America and gave us lands to reap it and make it bread for all mankind. And our /ork is not done, nor may we take our rest, as long as any- vhere in the world a human being hungers for liberty and is not fed." Sunde. Election of officers was held with Mrs. Robert Krause elected president, Mrs. Jerry Waite, sec., and Mrs. Lloyd Sunde, treas. The gift committee is Mrs. Clarence Wegener and Mrs. Adolph Hansen. Plans were made for the club to go to Mrs. Jack Tieman's the last Tuesday in July. Haven't you often wondered how countries received tneir names? Behind most names there is • romantic and interesting story. Semetimes these stories have been lost and forgotten, while in other cases :t.-dints have been able to trace tm origin of the name back to it; very beginning. For instance, take the name Ireland. This name pro- pefly should be Erinland, derived from the Phoenician word hiiernia, which means farthest habitation. Several centuries before the Christian era the Phoenicians were great seamen. They voyaged as far as Ireland, and believing this to be the most western land they gave it its name, meaning farthest land, or, as it is today, Ireland. I The Phoenicians also gave the contingent of Africa its'name. Africa means.simply black, in reference of course, to he black race found there. Our own continent of America received its name of Anerigo Vespucci, an early navigator. The name of Canada, whch is such a beautiful word in English, is not so compli- meitary when we discover it? origin. Canada is an Indian wo'd and means a collection of huts, which is hardly a fitting designation for the largest dominion of Britain. The name Bri- tah, by the way, is derived from Britannia, the name given to thii country by Caesar's legions, England can claim the distinction of being the only country to receive its name from in invaders instead of the natives. The Angles, who settled in early Britain, were called Englise by the native Saxons, and finally the land became known as England after the invading Angles. 1 Australia really means the land of the south, while Neqr Zealand is named after the Dutch province of Zealand and Tasmania receives its name from Tasman, the Dutch ex- ploi er, Asia is the Und of the dawn, while Europe means the brpid face of the earth, The name is derived from two Greek words, euros meaning broad and op meaning face, Spain was formerly called Hispania from the great number of rabbits which swarmed over the land.
