'INK in my VEINS' •y MAftfAN INMAN My daughter Mary Frances lives in the friendliest neighborhood. You usually think of lack of friendliness in a large place, but these are the nicest people. Each one different and as to nationality a small U. N. We have a Polish family, three daughters from a first wife who is dead and three small ones of their own, a young doctor and his wife who have four adopted children of different nationalities. A young couple with an eight year old son and just this week a little adopted daughter just ten months old. We have teenagers and babies, morning coffees, informal street get-togethers, consultations about lawn care and food and what have you. There is a small nearby park where we all get together for pot luck supper on the 4th of July and mild fireworks on the street later in the evening. We have a lawyer on our street, the doctor, an insurance man, a salesman and a liquor store and grocery market owner, a Japanese horiculturist, two school teachers and others. I have been here not too long but I am part of it and if I step out on our porch little folks call, hello Grandma and their fond Mamas wave as though they had always known me. A few days ago we went to downtown Lot Angeles to tour tht Music Confer, • beautiful group of buildings dedicated as a "Living Memorial to Peace." This is a monument to the city's community pride and cultural maturity. Located in the Los Angeles Civic Center, it includes the Pavilion, the Center Theatre and the Mark Taper Forum. The Pavilion, the 3250-seat Symphony Hall, the first completed unit is a part of Los Angeles' ambitious $33.5 million Music Center for the performing Arts. It is 330 feet long and 252 ft. wide. It rises five stories high and besides the Grand Hall, theatre part, 17 ft. high crystal chandeliers, many beautiful dinner rooms, rooms for theatre parties and club luncheons. We had a wonderful smorgasbord luncheon in the blue ribbon room, elegant beyond words. There are wonderful fountains which are lighted at night to make a veriatible wonderland and the view of the city from this high is something to see. We have toured China Town and Olvera Street with the Mexican Spanish flavor. We have toured the waterfront, the beaches, visited Al Jolson's burial place, viewed bridges of height, seen a zoo, beautiful parks, Hollywood and the Farmer's market. Some of these things I have seen before on my last visit, some new and there is much more to see and do. I do not care to revisit Disneyland but wd do plan a day at Knott's Berry Farm which has a few new attractions, they say. All wonderful to see and fun to go in good company but after the heat of the day our home here in Torranco and the cool ocean breexe makes us ask ourselves why we over leave it. There is no place like home. And I mean that more ways than one. I have had a grand summer but it will be nice to be in Iowa and my nice little home again and so* the Iowa grandchildren again. I am sure our baby Richard has grown so much I'll be surprised. I wish they were with me to enjoy some of these California pleasures. I always seem to want my cake and to eat it too. Well, that's me. Do not allow idleness to deceive you; for while you give him today, he steals tomorrow from you. If your enemy has injured you, or your friend deceived you; or your reputation blackened, pray for your enemies, and then be up and doing. Feeling sorry for yourself and letting yourself drown in idleness can never help. Better gather field flowers, plant rushes, weed the garden, or black your own shoes than be idle. Occupation will raise your spirit, while idleness will bring it down to the dust . . . Occupation will often blunt the edge of the sharpest grief, keep the body in health, and preserve the mind in comparative peace. He that is in trouble should do something to get rid of it. The moment you feel moody and miserable, seek Divine support by prayer, and then set yourself a task immediately, something that will compel you to exert yourself, and you will be surprised at the relief it will afford you. And especially employ yourself in doing good, and softening the sorrows of others: While taking the thorn from the bosom of another, you will lose that which rankles in your own. Occupation cures one half of life's troubles, and tends to mitigate the remainder. Never give up. If adversity presses, Providence wisely has mingled the cup, And the best counsel, in all your distresses, Is the stout watchword of "Never give up." —Tupper LEAGUE BOWLING STARTS AUG. 28 For Team Spots, Call 295-2305 or 295-2831 ALGONA LANES 60-61-62-63 »i coioww "vimct" ;;IN fxar/NC MINNIAPOIIS w « and stay at W, R.
