The Spokane Min- *u?To atl< i n obscr ved the first recognized Father's day h in June ' 191 °- The occaslon has ^en va- »^ v ? rious states in different ways, and on h A < t But there is now * eneral acceptance of the third Sunday in June. It hat bam Mid that a Fathar i* a thing that is foretd to endure childbirth without an anatthatic. That a Fathar it • thing that growls whan it faals good and laughs loud whan scared half to death. A father never faalt worthy of the worship in a child's ayas, Ha's navar quita the hero hi. daughter thinks, navar quita tha man his son baliavas him to ba, and this worrias him, somatimas. So ha works too hard to try and smooth tha rough placas in tha road for those of his own who will follow him. A father is a thing that gets very angry when the first school grades aren't as good as he thinks they should be. He scolds his son but secretly wonders if it isn't the teacher's fault. Even in heaven, after he has a good rest, I hava an idea that Dad won't just sit on a cloud and wait for tha girl ha loved and tha children she bore. He'll be busy there, too, repairing the stairs, oiling the gate, improving the streets, smoothing the way. Yes, fathers are pretty wonderful. If you are fortunate enough to have yours still with you do not forget to say thank you now, and do some nice little things for him. Flowers and bouquets now while he can enjoy them with you. I read not long ago that it is an error to think "Father's day" is a North American institution. It was initiated by the ancient Greeks and has long been observed in China. The early Greeks honored Zeus, father of gods and men. Worshippers bore gifts to his shrines and later set aside a day for gifts to all fathers. The Chinese have been celebrating "Father's day" twice a year, in spring and autumn. On these occasions, sons of the household first visit the tombs of their forefathers and then put on a celebration for their own fathers, including presentation of gifts. According to the customs of the Indians of Ecuador in South America, when a child is born the father goes to bed for six days where he receives visits from friends and congratulations. The mother must go out into the jungle to bring tasty foods for the father of her child. So those Indian fathers take more than one father's day. Well, anyway, this is what I read. A Midwestern father regretted that he couldn't give his home the fine gifts that many another parent was able to place before the glowing eyes of a wife and children. It became an obsession and he lived a dismal existence. That is, until his oldest son earned a high and responsible position. You see, this father spent his days in a wheelchair. His wife had to work. His children all had to earn what they could from small jobs. And he was miserable, longing to give his family what other families enjoyed. But when the fine job came to his son, the son told his father that tha greatest gift he had received was courage and this from his father. It had come to him when he saw his father rising from the pain of a factory accident to make a grand fight for life and existence. Said the son. "Where any father would have died, you refused to. And the doctor told us it was all because you had the greatest courage he had ever seen. And Dad, I'll make good because you some way passed that courage to me." I have been making jewel boxes from goose eggs. My friend Hertha Dau makes such beautiful ones and I never tried. Now I've started I am learning and enjoying making them. No « one is alike. I just get ideas as I go along. "Come up and see me sometime." We are all conscious of our daily tasks, and they usually are many and frequently quite annoying. Sometimes we are frightened by the immensity of the task we have undertaken for ourselves. However, that fear can be overcome by doing just as a woman motorist I know overcame her fear for driving her car on those narrow metal runways in service stations used to hoist the car for a grease job. She always had managed to get someone to do it for her. One day, however, she mustered up nerve, did it herself and was amazed to discover how simple it could be. Nothing to be frightened of at all. "Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others." ARE YOU SURE YOU CAM STOP? Good brakes are our concern ^ yours, too! Better see us for a brake check now, Also, let us check and align your front wheels. You'll save on wear. See ug today, ^Sinclair, former Bode man is killed in accident — Donald Glenn Johnson, 19, son of the Everett Johnsons, Lanesboro, who was instantly killed Monday in a one- car accident north of Lanesboro was a former student in Twin Rivers high school.
