From where I sit _. fy Joe Marsh Recipe for a Perfect Marriage Dee and Jane Cuppers celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary last Saturday. Having so many friends, it seemed like half the town stopped in that evening to pay their respects. Little Ida Moffat brought a home-made poem to read, called Love Enduring. Bert Childers fiddled "Silver Threads Among the Gold." Will Dudley made a speech and proposed a toast. And as I watched that toast— Dee with his glass of beer, Jane with her buttermilk—I thought to myself: There's a recipe for happy marriage. Two folks with different tastes—no doubt an honest fault or two—who through the years have learned to live in tolerance and understanding. From where I sit, Dee and Jane are a mighty good example to young married people of today—an example of how mod* eration, tolerance and understanding can build lasting happiness and solid homes.
