5-ALGONA (Id**) ADVANCE MONOAV, MARCH 21, 1966 •«•*••••••••§•****•*••••••«••••••••*•••*••••••**• WK in my VEINS'' SY MARIAN INMAN ••••••••••••••*••••••••••«•*•••*••••••••••••••••• Congratulations 7 to the senior class of Swea City high School on'their very able presentation of the play, "Our Town" by Thorton Wilder, "pur Town depicts the life .of a New Hampshire village — with its humor, picttiresqueness and pathos set against a background of centuries of time, social' history, and religious ideas. As the stage manager says: "This is the way we're in our gro\Ving-up and in our marrying arid in our. doctoring arid in our living and in our dying." The play begins in 1901 in Grover's Corners where the Gibbs and the Webbs are neighbors. During their childhood George Gibbs and Emily Webb are neighbors, and their lives are inextricably woven together as neighbors' lives are likely to be. But as they grow older they pats into a state of romantic but embarra*«*rt int»r»«t in one another. And one day George proposes to Emily in the drug store over an ice cream soda, which he discovers he hasn't the money to pay for. But their happiness is short lived, for Emily is taken in death and placed in the village ceme- ' tery on a rainy, dreary dav. In the most vitallv movirio scene In the modern theatre is shown the peace and quiet of dtath which can never be understood by the living." ! Faculty and students deserve much credit for the fine performance, for the long lines memorized, the acting ability along with speech and acting the silent parts. Alice Weber took Mrs. Pastor Nelson and myself and we three were congenial spirits. An evening to be treasured and stored with other pleasant memories. There were friends to greet and meet and delight in the very evident pride of parents whose offspring were performers of the evening. Nostalgia too in the costumes and the manners of the era of the play. Sadness too as we realize how .busy and wrapt we become in everyday cares and do not take /time to savor the happiness of the moment. "We do not understand." ", "Build a little fence of trust ; > Around today; V: Fill the space with loving works, '- And therein stay; t: Look not through the sheltering bars •" Upon tomorrow, *•' God will htlp the* bear what comes i" Of joy or sorrow." , V; On my return home from the class play at Swea City, I was in a dreaming grateful mood. Grateful for the many rich experiences that haye corne my way. Grateful for the very specjal people whom I count as' my friends here at home in iowaiand all over the world. • I felt very humble as I thought over th* many privileges that have come to me and I hoped I would always keep • true; appreciation for them. I hope I never grow so set that little occasions in my life will not stand out as special. H 1 thought of my dear older brother, Phil, long since gone and of the many, happy experiences we had together. ;'" We were born and reared in Moprhead, Minnesota. Just across the. Red River in Fargo. N. Dak. lived our stately paternal Grandmother Sheridan, (our friendly, playful, maternal Grandmother Remley lived in Moorhead.) We could walk across the big bridge (now gone) from one state to another. Oh, it was a big achievement! Lean see us yet, a little boy and girl hand- in-hand and a big knot in a certain plank was half of the way. "Now we are in Minnesota." "Now we are in North Dakota." The little boy is dead, the little girl rather gray but still not so old at heart. There have been difficult times in her life, but theylhav* helped her savor the happy times that much more. ./•• Remember she was the girl who longed to have lived in pioneer days and grew up to find- that facing up to life, whatever it brings and no. matter the year, is being a pioneer. Now is the time to order your garden and flower seeds if you have not done, so. It is the time, to finish reading that good book on your reading , list. Visit a sick friend, make cookies for your grandchildren, put your head out of doors, breathe in fresh sweet air and thank God for letting you be here. Enjoy a sunset, really look at your family and friends when you are with them. Life is so short, make the most of every moment. Say an extra prayer, deny yourself some luxury, get your spiritual garments ready for Easter just as you are getting your Easter regalia ready. .
