Just when I can't think a new thought or can't make some idea behave long enough to get it down on paper, whet) the well of imagination runt dry, the mail comes and friends and-readers write of hdw they enjoy the column and of the inspiration they receive from it and send me some interesting clippings and 1 am started again.

The lovely, lovely gifts these brides of now-a-days receive and how sweetly and graciously they will preside in their newly established homes,; In • pleatant note from my friend Sally, Mrt. Francit Johnton of Friendthip Haven, Fort Dodge, in which the en- cloied a number of good clipping! of newt end poemt, the sayt, "Dean Marian: Surely you are not in 'need' of thole imatteringt, but I'm tending 'em anyway." Little does tho know that I did need them and until her delightful letter came I did not know what I would write. Jutt reading her letter nspired me, to pleat* dear friendt keep them coming. In a recent column I told a story of our adult example lo our youth in deception, lying and underhandedness. This week a read a bit of John Ruskin on deception by word of silence and I quote, "And this is especially to be insisted on in the early education of young people. It should be pointed 'ut to them with continual earnestness that the essence of lying is deception, not in words: a lie may be told by silence, by equivocation,. by the accent on a syllable, by a glance of the oye attaching peculiar significance to a sentence; and til of these lies are worse and baser by many degrees than a lie plainly worded; so that no form of blinded conscience is so far sunk as that which comforts itself for having deceived, because the deception was by gesture or science, instead of utterance; and finally, according to Tennyson's deep and trenchant line, "A lie which is half a truth is ever the worst of Lies." •;.••.: Ronald Reagan, at the library dedication in Eureka, called on youth to help "Redirect our notion'* courte into the pathi of freedom and morality and high principle." But ho defended hit generation't accomplithmentt. "We have to re- ttudy tome of our social legitlation, legitlation that meant well, but hat failed in itt goalt or hat created greater brob- lemt than the onet it wat meant to cure," Reagan wont on to say, is it enough to have material things? Aren't liberty and morality and integrity and high principles and a tome of responsibility more important?" r This is pretty much the sum and substance of what he said to the riotous students at the University of California Hp^fSVJl? 11 th f, y were a . ctually th n>wing things at Hime. • d l end « dj the college authorities for the stand and the rules they had laid down from their experience and urged the students to take and like or plaase leave the college. He also said that if mistakes had been made in the rules that if these were presented in a reasonable manner all could be disbursed explained and understood so they could be squared awav I was proud that he stood his ground, ' • We must come closer .together not only through 7 the modern meant of communication, we muit come togothor, with our hearts in mutual understanding, esteem, and love.
