THERE IS A SHORT ARTICLE in the current Coronet magazine entitled "My Home Town" by Barbara Black. She gives many good reasons for being glad of living in a small town - the familiar and unchanging buildings, the proximity of fields and woods, houses with big yards- but she touches only briefly on what I consider a small town's chief selling point-the people who live there. - o FT SEEMS TO ME THAT SMALL TOWN PEOPLE, or at least the ones in my small town, are more friendly than city people and have more of that quality which, for want of a better word, we call neighborliness. - o THIS IS NOT TO SAY THAT big city people aren't friendly if you can get them in small enough groups. Nor is it necessarily true that every one who lives in a hamlet, even our fair town, has a heart of pure 14 carat gold. If s just that living so closely together, we have more opportunity for neighborliness. If you want to look at the situation a bit more cynically, it may be that most of us don't dare to be other than friendly. It goes pretty rough on an uppity person in a small community and he hurts mainly himself who looks down his nose on his neighbors. - o NEIGHBORING IS SUPPOSED TO be an old-fashioned art, but it's far from a dead one in these parts,, I've heard of too many good deeds and have had too many nice things done for me to ever believe that friendliness is out-moded. Maybe there isn't quite so much running in with broth and calf s foot jelly when there is an illness, but neither is there so much competition to have the whitest wash earliest on the line Monday mornings. Or leaving out of an ingredient in an exchanged recipe so that one cook's cake will be the best in the neighborhood. - o - I'M NOT MUCH CONCERNED WITH the book of etiquette on neighboring - things like making a proper call the minute the new neighbor gets her curtains up. I don't think I've ever made a formal call and left a visiting card in my life. What does bother my conscience is all those little things I might have done to show friendliness and then failed to do them. - o - HOW MANY TIMES HAS MY heart ached for someone who is grieving over a death in the family and though the budget didn't run to floral wreaths I did think of them constantly and yet I didn't even get around to sending a printed sympathy card I And the time Pve blithely said, "If there is anything lean do, just let me know," when I know blamed well'the only way to be of real assistance is to offer something definite like a casserole for lunch or my services riding herd on the little ones for a half-day. - o WE ARE ALL PLENTY BUSY BUT that isn't much of an excuse when it comes to helping out a friend, for some of the most hardworking people seem to find 1 time for a little thoughtfulness. If s a knack, this helpfulness some people have, and one that we all should cultivate. But the least I can say for myself is that I have never made a call on a sick friend who was surrounded by mountains of work that had to be done and wagged my finger at her with the admonition, "Now don't work too hard. Get plenty of restl" - o YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR DEATH, illness or any other ' catastrophe to be neighborly. A card on someone's birthday can bring a glow, though I usually forget to send them. Even a small conversation or a cheery hello can brighten things for a moment. And a little extra attention to the small fry can gain you life-long admirers. We've had some good examples of this in our neighborhood recently. - o LAST SATURDAY NIGHT THE WORD went quickly around that there were going to be some movies at the Richardsons. Roy and Beulah had secured a bunch of comedies and the flock of youngsters that responded to their invitation must have overflowed their living room. 'They were home by bedtime, each with a candy bar treat and with the report that Mr. and Mrs. Richardson are the nicest couple in the neighborhood. - o THERE ARE BANDS OF CHILDREN who wait along the mail route for Henry Guderian. He always has some conversation for them and he can call all of them by name. Whaf s more he collects agates and his pockets hold samples of the rocks which he gives to the youngsters. Henry has adult assistants who collect agates for him to give to the kids. If the kids happen to find rocks they suspect are agates, they consult with the mailman on the subject. All the extra attention doesn't rob Uncle Sam of any time that should be spent delivering mail for Mr. Guderian moves at such a clip he finishes his work in record time every day. - o HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THAT the people in the neighborhood who are the most cross about children running over their lawn are the very people the youngsters single out to pick on most? It must not be much fun to have little brats ruin your flower-beds, especially after you have reared your own children to the point where they don't bother them, but here, as in so many instances, the old proverb "You can catch more flies with sugar than vinegar" again applies. - o THE TERM 'NEIGHBORHOOD 1 means more than just the few houses in our own block. Our neighbors include the people in our town, our state, the nation, and the world. We are reminded of it more every day.
