WMMttft* 'INK in my VEINS By MARIAN INMAN Hal Boyle, who is one of my favorite columnists writes in his "Gold all around you" that the spirit-electrifying words of Jesus Christ have been translated into,scores of languages, but if Me returned to earth and spake again in the same tongue. Hd would be understood only in three small villages on the Syrian-Lebanese border. They are the only places left where Western Aramaic, the language of Christ, is stUI in daily use. Still room for more! Despite all the worry about the population explosion, the United States is far from crowded. Only 6 per cent of our land is used for residential purpose*. Be this as it may some areas are not fit for residential purposes. Can you recall later in the day the dream that seemed so vivid last night? Inability to do so may indicate you're aging. Tests show that young people remember their dreams better than old people. No, Matilda's blueberry slump, isn't a posture ailment among underprivileged berry pickers. It's a type of bread pudding popular on Cape Cod. Today is August 20th, the 232nd day of 1967. There arc only 133 days left in the year. Doesn't this make you stop and think? Where has the year gone? What have we accomplished? What worthwhile things can we do in the remaining 133 days? • This week I saw the Pr. Zhivago movie for the second time. The music is so beautiful and haunting. The portrayal of this story so sad and cruel and true that you feel you are there suffering the sorrows of an oppressed people and witnessing the weaknesses of our human natures. Soon we'll be returned to school. Bnck in the routine and tv.joying it. In my reading I run across this old English ihyrnc which reminds what school is and what we learn there. Tis grammer teaches how to speak, And logic sifts the false from true, By rhetoric we learn to deck Each word with its own proper hue. Arithmetic of number treats, And music rules the Church's praise; Geometry the round earth metes, Astronomy the starry ways. Dear friends of my daughter and family are mourning , tt>.^ sudden death of a husband and father. It is so herd to try to console anyone in their first hours of sorrow. You cannot S.-M/, "You must not grieve, Heaven is beyond the start, th—-b is another country." They must grieve for awhile until they realize that the deeper you go into pain the more certain am you that all that happens to you has an explanation and a purpose. You do not know what they are but you know they are there. You do not suffer any the less because of the certainty, but you would rather suffer and have it than just enjoy yourself and not have it. Tonight as we sat down to a lovely meal at a graciously set table, we sighed with satisfaction and pleasure. Then in the course of conversation someone mentioned that in the near future we need not do all this preparation, that all we would need do would be to open a bottle and extract a pill which we could chew or swallow that would take caro of our food needs. When that happens let's hope it'* really healthful. But we will have lost a great deal too. Today for the first time for us we used'a floor polish put out by a California firm; Shaklee; Products Co.^You're in' 1 for a big surprise if you use it. (It is economical, needs no buffing and never turns yellow. It's exceptionally hard yet resilent finish absorbs the shock of foot traffic without powdering, resists penetration and scratching, repels heel-scuffing and soil and moisture. Our tean-agers' heel marks in the game room wipe up easily. It gives the floors a mirror-like look and you can keep them that way with a minimum of work. I really sing its praises. After your floor is cleaned and these manufacturer* have a solution that does that, you apply Super Polish thinly with even strokes. You do not rub or buff and if you desire easier spreading you can dilute the polish with equal parts of water. Sounds fantastic but it's true. I am all for something that saves work and yet does a super job. On August 12th, 1851, Isaac Singer was granted a patent on his sewing machine. He really gave a wonderful product to the world but I'll wager were he to come again he would be amazed at the progress his basic machine has undergone through the years with rerearch and inventions. I think he would feel sad and delighted at the same time. My King, make me understand that moments of darkness are a necessary part of your plan for me.
