PROMPT AND COMMIT Wf OOmO INVITATIONS AND ANNOUNCIMIMTS AT TNI ADVANCII Mere is a bit of something interesting that I read the other day by Dr. B W. Beadle of Springfield, Just what he is a doctor of and more about him 1 am trying to find out. Mere i« his philosophy. The article was captioned, "As financial officer, must she still chase pigs." "Farm wtoM ol MM future may preferh/ refer te themielvet «* 'tecretary and financial elf leer* ef the farm corporation/ Quick meali and fancy coekinf will permit farm women and children to spend lets time in the kitchen and home and mere time to be 'heavily involved In the operation of the business/ "There will be more automation on the farm and farm machinery will be cleaner, air-conditioned and smooth* riding," said Beadle. "These developments will make it possible for the wife to participate more in agricultural activities and enjoy her work. One farm woman foresees three eight' hour shifts a day during the peak seasons, with family members taking turns in the operation of one-trip-over machines." But Beadle reported also that some women are skeptical of how research will ease the farm wife's chore. One observed recently that, "I can't imagine that the run-to-town, shut-the- gate, chase-the-pigs, take-me-to-the-field type of hustle ever will be eliminated from the farm wife's role." This would make • good topic of conversation when • group get together, fun to hear the cemmtntt. Well I rtad just the other day. (hat if wa want a quiet spot, we'picked the wrong century to be born in. Recently, our school purchased some plastic book covers, interesting and colorful with a picture of the "Thinker" by Rodin, with these words, Always remember, 1. The power of prayer 2. The success of perseverance 3. The pleasure of working 4. The value of time , 5. The influence of example 6. The power of kindness 7. The obligation of duty 8. The virtue of patience ' 9. The worth of character, 10. The wisdom of economy 11. The improvement of talent 12. The presence of God. There is a sermon in each of these statements and we will do well to ponder them carefully. The world is nearly 2,000 years eld. We started out in darkness and bondage. Christianity and faith brought us great courage, liberty abundance, selfishness, complacency, apathy, which are sapping our back-bone leading us into dependence and back to bondage? Work like you will live forever and pray like you will die tomorrow. And please remember that a 'halo can be quite a nusiance if you have to keep explaining it. ( > .. . Political rumbles are all about us these days and this person and that person as a' possible candidate for the highest office in our land, the presidency of the United States. Have you ever thought about why a person seeking an office is called a candidate? The reason is that it was the custom in ancient Roman days for all who sought political office to appear before the public dressed in a white toga. The white toga was supposed to represent purity, freedom from evil or prejudice, and other upright qualities. The name of this white toga was candida- • tus, and therefore those- who woreMt Were referred to > as : candidates. Thus modern office seekers are also called candidates from .this ancient custom. We have cluttered up our lives with so many laws. Laws upon laws, laws to cancel or correct laws that I some* times think it would be good if we could make a great bonfire of these many laws and start all over again with only the Golden Rule and the Ten Commandments. .1 am sure we would get along better. Now is the time to: Greet old friends, Make new ones. Finish your Christmas cards. ' . • Feed the birds. Write Aunt Barbara. Bake ginger bread men. Decorate for Christmas. Make out gift cards of "I owe you so many ironings, or so many hours of baby sitting. Young mothers will appreciate this kind of gift. Be happy.
