M*** •»••••••••••*•**»• MM MM M MM MMMMM6* "INK in my VEINS" BY MARIAN INMAN Whittemore Elevator sales top 3 million Have you been noticing the night sky lately? It shifts scenes several times in a matter of hours. For awhile just after sundown last evening it had black back drop curtains with a sliver of mysterious silver light showing through a parting in the curtains. As the moon arose it was a cotton batting sky, so near I felt I could reach and touch it. A great spread of • cotton batting with here and there a break through with sky showing and an occasional twinkling of a star. 1 am sure a mischievious angel poked the holes through the batting to peek down at us earthlings. A mere half hovr later the silver moon was riding wide and high and the back drops of black and the cotton batting were gone. I heard the drone of a plane but I could not see it and I fell asleep thanking God for my nice cozy home and warm bed. And this morning w* awakened to a frostv fairy wonderland, courtesy of Jack Frost. Trees, bu«.hes, fences all a marwl of frosty he«, to quote the pqfit, "the lowliest weed is * thing of beauty." And overall this hanrjs a swaving frosty white curtain of fog, beautiful to envision, treacherous to drive in. Our salute to the Boy Scouts of America. "We 'have read many profound works on oatriotism; «-e have b'rtened to long-winded orators expounding on the privilege and sacred duty "f every free man to express his love of countrv by deed as well as word; but we have npver thrilled with the true meaning of patriotism as when we. heard a sr"ill Negro Boy Scout. . when a^ked for hi« definition, answer. -It's jes doirt' my dog- gondest to be the. bertest that I is'." , The*«? ara the hov« we deptnd on — Our hooe f*r the futur?, and then, ; <V»»« orobfemc o* state anH the world's work await Such boys when they grow to be men. — Origin Unknown. Here is suggested pood reading for Febrmrv and all times: -For teenage scientists, the story of Thomas Alva Edison, bv Cousins for reading on his birthday, Thomas A. Edison, one of t*>« world's mo^t remarkable inventors, out the orincinles of scientific discovery to work in .instrument" ?nd machines which woulrl sprve mankind. The greatn°ss of his inventions is rivaled onlv bv hie cawoity for work. Ta him there was no fun in the world like work. It was nothing for him to maintain a schedule of eighteen or twenty hours of each day in the laboratory where he conducted thousands of experiments. When Edison was developing the 'mcand»«cent light, he mad* pxneriment after experiment without diccour»qem»nt or *lack«>ninri of once. On- of his assistant* beeominn dis- couraqed, said to him, "Mr. Edison, we have made fifty thousand experiments and have no results." "Results," exclaimed the great inventor with enthusiasm. "We have wonderful results. We know now fifty thousand things which won't work." At thi« tim* of the year we ar» celebratinn the birth- t'av of Abraham Lincoln, who has been praised for many things. In mv ooinion he deserves Braise e*oeci«lly because he m*d° honesty respectable and achieved the title of "Honest Abe." Some people define honesty as "the fear of getting caught." Some neoole are dishonest because they are lazy and seek the easiest way out. The life of "Honest Abe Lincoln" teaches us that man can win success and gain fame bv .being straight and honest. In other words, it is possible to climb to --considerable heights by remaining on the level The personality of Lincoln glows like a torch through the years to the present. The great simplicity -of the man, his humbleness, his courage, moral and social, his achievement in pulling himself from the lowest beginnings into the seats of the mighty, form an increasing inspiration for the youth of all nations and point the way for statesmen to follow. Abraham Lincoln did not have the advantages of education when he was younger but he kept Dn trying to educate himself all his life instead of stopping when he had finished school, as so many do today. Historians tell us that it was not until he was 40 years old thnt Lincoln mastered Euclid. In this age of easy education we might take a lesson from this preat man and recoqniie the need for continuing our intellectual development all through life. The young man or woman who leaves school and closes the door of education behind him or her is putting an obstacle in the path to further intellectual development. "Fellow-citizens, we cannot escape history. We of this Congress and this Administration will be remembered in spite of ourselvos. The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor to the latest generation." (Second annual message to Congress.)

They say habits are difficult ;o break. That works both ways. Once; broken, habits are also hard to resume. Like writ- ng this column which has been running along, more or less continuously, for almost 25 years. A few weeks ago, I thought I had it whipped but I was mistaken. A few days trip to Minneapolis revived my interest in the movies, although frankly, ttie fare was quite mediocre, with the exception of some of the road-show productions like Ag : ony and Ecstasy at the Academy, Sound of Music at the Mann, Battle of the Bulge at the new St. Louis Cinerama and Bear Facts By NEILNURRE Homemaker Burt — Claudeen Cranston, 17, was named Betty Crocker Homemaker for the Burt school.

Garrigan's game with Granville Spalding on Friday, February 4 was called off because several players caught a virus which kept a large number of students out of school on Thursday and Friday, the third and fourth. The game has been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 15. —GHS— Saturday Garrigan traveled to Carroll Kuemper. The Sophomores played first game and won with a score of 64 to 52.

Kathy is now eligible for state and national scholarship awards '., ranging from $500 to $5,000. —GHS— Twenty-one students from Garrigan,. participated in the :YO speech contest at Pocahon Cooker. I had either seen most of the latter or was not particularly interested. The big B.O. smash is at the Orpheum where Thunderball is rolling along for its sixth week with tremendous crowds. It's one of thosei James Bond thrillers with pretty girls and a fantastic plot. Life at the Top, with celebrated Laurence Harvey and the cast of the hit, Room at the Top, is a rather depressing domestic drama but the word is out that the next attraction at the Downtown World will be an outstanding - : productioii-^ namely Dr. Zhivago.

The Monday night audience gave Boeing, Boeing a warm welcome which proves that my estimate is of little consequence. But there are some jood ones coming up on the February calendar. Don't miss The Train, with Burt Lancaster, on tap this week—13th thru the 16th. It's good exciting "train" drama, well done and expertly acted. The Cincinnati Kid is another box office smash and has been well received by the critics. Do Not Disturb, with Doris Day and Rod Taylor, shows our popular little heroine in a new and rather sexy role. That's as far as I care to go.
