"INK in my VEINS" 4 By MARIAN INMAN teoe«»'eeeeeeeeee**e*eae«aeeeaaeeeeeeeeoeeeeeeeeee ; Long ago an Eastern monarch, plagued by many worries, harassed on every side, called his wi°e men -toother. Ma asked them to invent a motto, a few magic words that would help him in time of trial or distress, It must be brief enough to be engraved on a ring, he said, so that he could have It'al- ways before his eyes. It must be appropriate to every situation, as useful in prosperity as in adversity. It must be a motto wise |hd true and endlessly enduring, words by which a man could be guided all his life, in every circumstance, no matter what happened. The wise men thought and thought, and finally came to the monarch with their magic words. Thev were Words for every change or chance of fortune, declared the wise men . . . words to fit every situation, good or bad . . . words to MM the heart and mind in every circumstance, And the words t : hey gave the monarch to engrave on his ring were: > "This, too, shall pass away." Century after century, this old legend has survived. Whether or not the motto was invented for a troubled monarch, no one really knows — nor is it in the least important. But this much is certain: The words are wise and true and endlessly enduring. They have proved their power over and over again through the centuries, to uncounted numbers of men and women, in every land and every conceivable situation. They have given- comfort to the afflicted, courage to the frightened, hope to the worried and distressed. This, too, shall pass away. Poets and philosophers have stressed these five magic words over and over again, each in his own fashion, but always with the same inspiring influence. Countless other stories could be told of this inspiring phrase, (each of us has one or more) these five magic words which legend says were engraved by wise men on a monarch's ring many Centuries ago. They are comforting words for all of us to remember in times of trial or trouble, in times of hardship of affliction. When nothing else helps, it's comforting to know that no pain or grief can last forever, that whateyer your burden may be . . . this, too, shall pats away. : To the young graduates who are launching their careers upon the world, my congratulations and good wishes to you. Be of good courage and face up to whatever comes your way. There are those who say that there is nothing new ahead, put I believe that,careers never dreamed of lie ahead for the young man or woman with ideas, ambition, ability and courage. In 1890; most top physicists were convinced that there was nothing new left-to come to this science. And yet, in 1895, the X-ray was discovered; a year latar came radioactivity, and it was followed in 1897 by the electron. These discoveries sent physics off in entirely new directions and created thousands of new opportunities. Then in 1940, one of the world's outstanding physicists made a statement in an address to the effect that he saw nothing new ahead for physics. But at the moment he was speaking, nuclear fission was being developed and we were on our way to the atom bomb and the dawning atomic age. ; To our young people I say, look up with courage, up to the mountain, bayond the seemingly inaccessible foothills. The richness of promise has not run out. It is yours if you keep faith for this your time. This is not an idle dream, its realization is distinctly possible, but only on the condition that you fight for it, fight with undiscouraged faith. The world is yours, you can look ahead to the greatest opportunities in history. . . ( 1 When you are reading this column, I'll be away on a visit to my little Aunjt Barbara, in Fargo, N. D. She will be 90 years old on June 19th. Beautiful and frail but so alert and alive. She is an example to all of us. Wherever she is, the world is a better place. She makes it so. Her's has always been a life of love and service to others. Are you taking time to enjoy and appreciate the wonderful showing of the Great Painter? Beautiful canvasses spread with living color from a sunrise and from an evening sky. The fresh green of trees against a blue sky, fleecy clouds and spots of color from spring flowers. Take time to look and enjoy, take a moment to hear a burst of song from His birdlings. You will return to your task refreshed and will accomplish it in no time, "So methinks that all creation, Tells you of your Gob above, While the starry heavens whisper, Look up, Lift up, God is Love."
