BLYTHEVIU.E Readers' Views Editor, Courier News:— I should like to express my Ion about an ordinance recently passed by the city council in re- Bard to children using flic cemetery lot on Chtckasawba .for a play, ground. I think It is a shame that they are hot allowed to piny there any more. ' f have a grandfather, a grandmother, R brother, a sister and a number of aunts ,uncles and cousins whose remains became a part of mother earth In {his plot yeans and years ago, and who, I am sure would be pleased to know that happy children were \ising this spot for a playground. For what Is any more beautiful or any nearer Heaven than a" group of lovely children happily playing together? I can think of nothing that would make me happier In Heaven than to know that little children were romping and playing over my grave I would much prefer that (o the loneliness of a deserted "graveyard " I am sure there will be wor«c things take place on this hallowrci spot, than precious little children Playing, judging from the liquor bottles and other rubbish to be seen there. It seems to me that we are prone to make on issue of unimportant things and overlook the vital ones Alter all, which should concern as more, the future generation or lhr> past? It Is what we do for the livlii" snd not what we do for the dead" that counts In this Jlfe, as well as the one hereafter. Sincerely, A Friend of Children THAT LAST CHECK—Theodore J.
