Don't Forget the Fourth's Real Meaning Why cclebi-alc the Foiirlh of July? , That's the day the United States declared its independence of Britain in .1776. Well and good, Hang out Hie flags, march in or watch the parades, enjoy the picnic and the ball same. Independence of Hu'lniit was proclaimed 163 years ago. The one-time colonial status of the United States has no reality lo men today. It is mere history, interesting but noi vital. But the Declaration of Independence, proclaimed by CongriiiS 103 years ago, is .still a >vital part of American life. as- part of your Fourth of „ ' July observance. It is as clearly a part ' of our fundamental charter of liberty as the" Constitution itself. It contains the basic cornerstone on which the •Coii&titntion and the American Republic were built. ' "We .hold these truths lo bo self- evident, Hint all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these arc Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness . . ." Note that the rights of man arc con. .teivcd as natural, fiom God, attributes • which nobody can take away. They are not rights granted by a paternal government, or suffered by a tolerant majority. They are not rights that anybody or anything can take away. They are conceived as being part of the' very blood and brain and soul of man. "That "to secure these rights, 'Governments are instituted among Men, , deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." Note the primary purpose of government as the franiois of our Declaration of Independence saw it: not for glory of nation or race, not for gaining a place among's powers— sim- • ply^to secure lo men their natural • rights. That, said the Declaration, is the" basic reason why the United States of America was set up. A moment's reflection will show how diilercnt is that massive cornerstone from the foundations of newer govcnmiciils in Europe. And then, after reciting the grievances yvhich brought the decision to cut loose from Europe, and rcaflirm- ing the right to set up a new government if ever .this one should fail lo serve that purpose oJ? protecting men's rights, the Declaration closes with this stirring pledge: "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the pro- lection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge^ to each other our Lives, ou iwes^ and our sacral Honor." Arc we today prepared to pledge as much to preserve the liberty these men risked everything to win? Thai is the question end) of ought: to ask himself on the Fourth of July, 1039, Grain for Dnxt ' The success of the shelter-belt plan of tn'e-planling in the "tlii-sl bowl' areas is marked enough after five years lo justify Secretary Wallace in nay- ing that they may help to make the Great I'lain.s region a breadbasket for the nation rather than an ever-threatening desert. At foiir cents apiece, t!ii> government has helped : plant 127,000,000 trees along 11,000 miles of windbreak. Some of the trtcs, which vociferous and saraislic critics insisted wouldn't grow, arc now SO and 315 feet high. And on more than 20,000 farms, new liiVhns 'come lo the crops, and new hope to Hie fanners. Without faith, there can be no progress; without tin; willingness to lake a risk there can be no solid gain. The cellars, pines, locusts, elm.s, and willows waving in the prairie brcox.e are a row of banners to a risk justified and a faith vindicated, SIDE GLANCES A New One Kveryfoocly is for (.ruffle Hafcly.

A youth had come around a corner of the house, a bullet-headed youth with brown hair. In one hand he carried a golf club and in the other, a white cloth bag.

Then he gripped the club, took a stance and made a furious practice swing,! lifting n fair-sized livot from the Canning lawn. "It's only stopped..
