INK in my •y MARIAN INMAN On Sunday Sept. 3rd the torrance, California, Press- Herald carried this ed'torial called. "Everybody Does* It." Please read it and think and do something about the example we are all giving to our youth and for which we blame them. Whan Johnny wts six years old, ht was with hit father when they wert caught speeding. Hit father handed the officer a $5 bill with hit driven license. "It's okay, ton," hit father taid at they drove off. "Everybody doe* it." When he was nine, his mother took him to his first theatre production. The box office man couldn't find any seats until his mother discovered an extra $2 in her purse. "It's okay,.son," she s,aid. "Everybody does it." When he was 12, he broke hit glattet on the way to school. Hit Aunt Francine persuaded the insurance company that they had been stolen and they collected $27. "It's okay," she said. "Everybody does it." When he was 15, he made right guard on the high school football team. His coach showed him how to block and at the same time grah the opposing end by the shirt so the official couldn't see it. "It's okay, kid," the coach said. "Everybody does it." When he was 16, he took his first summer job at the big market. His assignment was to put the over-ripe tomatoes in the bottom of the boxes and the good ones on top where they would show. "It's okay, kid," the manager said. "Everybody does it." When he was 18, Johnny and a neighbor applied for a college scholarship. Johnny was a marginal student. His neighbor was in the upper three per cent of his class, but he couldn't.play right guard. Johnny got the assignment. "It's okay," they told him. "Everybody does it." When he was 19, he was approached by an upper classman who offered the test answers for $3. "It's okay, kid," he said. "Everybody does it." Johnny was caught and sent home in disgrace. "How could you do this to your mother and me?" his father said. "You never learned anything like this at home." His aunt and uncle were also shocked. "If there's one thing the adult world can't stand, it's a kid who cheats." Jack Griffin in Chicago Sunday Times. This clipping from the bulletin of the Rotary Club of Graham, Texas. Read this and think. "Gather around, little children, and I'll tell you a fable. Once upon a time three dogs were walking down the street. Passing a butcher shop, they saw some bologna sausage temptingly displayed in the window. "That looks good," said one of the dogs, "Let's go in and buy some." "No," said the second dog. "Let's ttay out here and howl until the butcher givss us some." So, they set up a mighty howl and sure enough, the butcher threw them some bologna to quiet them. Now the sad part of this fable is that from that day to this, these three dogs have been howling and the poor butcher is broke, frantically searching for more bologna to throw to those dogs and the many, many more who have joined them. Have you been around long enough to remember the old wood shed? That's where the kids wound up when they misbehaved, and it was a lesson long remembered. "Has it occured to you that our moral decay began about the time garages began to replace the old woodshed?" a H That was about the time Dad switched to a safety Sraior and the razor strop vanished from the home. It wasla 'pretty good safeguard against delinquency, too. I read today that the erratic hurricane 'Doria' took the lives of three persons in a cruisar. Even the power of a hydrogen bomb pales in comparison to the devasting power ., of .a hurricane. These awesome storms can lift two billion tons of water from the sea in a single day — and in a single hour release more energy than is produced in all the power stations of the nation in a decade. Car thieves must be the world's, worst drivers. Safety officials say their accident rate is 200 per cent above that of motorists driving their own cars. Incidentally, owners of 40 per cent of the 600,000 cars that will be stolen this year will make the job easier for thieves by leaving the ignition keys in their parked vehicles. Here is a bit more of folklore: To kill a wart, rub it with a penny. Hang wolf teeth around a child's neck and it will grow up to be fearless. If you recite the Lord's Prayer backward at midnight, the devil will appear to you. Now really! A woman with a "Widow's peak" — a V-shaped hairline will lose her first husband but remarry soon.
