4-ALOONA (lew.) ADVANCE THUHSOAY, MAY 19, 1966 ' "INK in my VEINS" PV MARIAN INMAN •eeeeeeeeeeeeeaeaeeeeeeaeeoeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaeeoee* Our congratulations to Miss Margaret Durant upon receiving the very special honor from Iowa poetry circles. We are very proud oi this wonderful talent in our midst. I wit interested in the story in the Picture Magazine •ection of the Sunday paper to read of the "Comeback of Horatio Mlger." my brother* and I read Hit ttoriet with great interest though I am sorry to say wo never kept oar Alger books. Then at we grew older there teemed to be much criticism of hit stories because of the success of his heroes to overcome every obstacle and either because of this or our reading tastes changed, we lost interest. 1 recall reading just a few years ago that the saying "do as 1 say and not as 1 do" certainly held true for Horatio Alger, Jr. This writer of books for boys who was so popular a generation or so ago could turn out novels at a tremendous rate. Once he wrote a tall-length book in only two weeks. His stories dealt with success and related the rags'to-riches rise of poor boys to financial leadership. (. The boy Heroes in Alger's books were strong characters, aggressive and full of courage. The article went on to say that Horatio Alger himself was a miserable, timid and discouraged'man. He was unhappy because be could never write a really good book. Hit horoet always won financial success but he himself was a peer man and died penniless. Ho worked hard at his writing* tor a poar living and hit own life contracted in every detail with the life of the boys he wrote about. How nice if he could have known when he was alive that hit books would become collectors items and that scholarships in his name would be awarded by a society in his name. . .:j - '.•'•,We<wait too many times to give the flowers and the thank yous until after people are gone. Let's start a club for ourselves and each of us resolve to try to appreciate people when, they are living. When they are gone irom us, tney couldn't care less. I believe that really deep down in most of us there is an appreciation and admiration for the creative impulse. We admire individuals who are capable of makmg or doing things but,we do not always express our admirat;on, and many times. in this day and,, age we are blinded by earning power rather than by the creative impulses,within the individual. Basically most 'of us admire those who can make things and especially those, who can make something useful out of their lives. Let's remember to say so while they are with us. The third Sunday in May was designated by a Congressional resolution, passed in 1940 as Citizenship Day or "i Am An American Day." The'original act spsdfies the day as a public occasion for the. recognition of those persons who have come of age, or become naturalized citizens during the preceding twelvemonths. "THE AMERICAN WAY" She held her precious "papers" close to her; . At last, at last she was a citizen. The nightmare of her past a fading blur, And yet her manner was disturbing when She flared at me, her anger partly pent, "Free spgech, free press, I know, but is it right To print such stuft about our President?" She read me something she had clipped last night. "The people are his conscience prodding him," ; ; So 1 explained. "He needs our rough disputes | Lest acquiescence turn his vision dim; Au4^ r ' He is the nourished tree, we are his roots. We must let him know when we must disagree And he must pause to listen, even he." ; —Christian Science Monitor We who have had our American citizenship as a part of our heritage take it pretty much for granted. At no time in our history has it been so important to be good Americans first and good farmers, bankers, doctors, businessmen, any profession second. Our citizenship is not a passport giving us the right to shelter under the welfare tent of the state. Rather we should consider it a share certificate in a going enterprise, the biggest and best of all enterprises. And this great enterprise will b». only as successful as we who are share-holders remember ths 3 R't of citizenship, rights, respect and responsibilities.. .'•/.' • The eagle is a symbol of victory. It also has this remarkable peculiarity among birds: When a severe storm occurs, all other birds either hide from the storm in any convenient, natural shelter, or they try to fight it as long as their strength will hold out. The eagle, however, neither fights nor runs away; he soars above it. And here; is a story on the lighter side. A young woman who was filling out an application form puzzled over the line, "Are you a natural born citizen of the U. S.?" Finally the answered, after much pencil chewing, "No. Caesarean." Resolve today to be a more alert citizen. Resolve to tackle every task every day as if it were the most important, of your life. We'll all reap dividends. '.
