WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 1955 BI-YTHEVIU.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN STARR GAZING By BETTYE NKLLfc STAKK Courier Newi Staff Correspondent 1 Julius Caesar was assassinated on March 15, 44 B. C, The first marker, District of Columbia, was laid on March 15, 1791.

Lose an hour in the morning, and you will be all day hunting [or it. The pssimlst looks at, a plum tree in full bloom and says he hopes a freeze doesn't kill the fruit. Congratulations to my favorite gal singer, Dinah Shore, one the adoption of a baby son, John David. I like what Emerson said: "The crowning fortune of a man is to be born to some pursuit which finds him employment and happiness, whether it b* to make baskets, or broadswords, or canals, or statues, or songs." Public opinion is a compound of folly, weakness, perjudice, wrong feeling, right feeling, obstinacy and newspaper paragraphs. Isn't that right, Hank? Man endures pain as an undeserved punishment; woman accepts it &£ a natural heritage. The shoeihaker makes a good shoe because he makes nothing else. Every man ha* thr;e characters, that which he exhibits, that which he has, and that which he thinks he has. A woman, so some nut once said, seldom writes her mind, but in her postscript. I'll admit the substance of a lot of letters are In that PS at the end of A letter. The angel of spring, the song birds, mocking birds and red birds. There Is nothing that ties In as beautifully with cocrus and daffodils as those two. Intelligence was given to man that he might hide his foolishness. To find out the truth isn't easy, and not always desirable. The man of talent seizes circumstances, the man of genius creates them, the fool looks at them without seeing them. If you're hell bent on tooting your horn, Join a band. An old fish can swim down stream, but it takes a live one to swim Up stream. Never show your teeth unless you con bite. Friends forgive, parents forget. It cost more to live nowadays than It did In the old 'days, but you get more kinds of life. The men who do the big things are like war horses. They can stand the. roar of the cannon and the thrust of the bayonet, but the fly stings, Irritates them past endurance. Men among men is one thing and men among wojnen is another. Bet you have one' in mind right this minute. Honesty is the best policy, but ft lot of folks are unable to keep up the premiums. Well, what do you knowf The couple In Stow, O., can keep their own baby, after a ruling of Juvenile Court Judge Russell Thomas of Akron. Things are getting mighty bad, when a couple, legally married, and are of good sound character and mind, hai'e to go to court in order to keep their newborn son, Just because they are blind and deaf. Does that keep an otherwise normal person from the desire to cuddle their very own? Having lost two of their senses only strengthens the other three. Their onjy senae of feel, where their own flesh and blood is concerned, would compensate for all others. Imagine parents, holding a warm little body up against their hearts, with the dread that the courts deemed it necessary to deprive a mother and father that priviledge. This would certainly have been a bad state of affairs had this thing happened. I can't imagine who was the first to start that move. It. couldn't have been a mother. Man's Unknown Fortune Found .CAMBRIDGE, MlM. (Pi— Blind Wallace Andrews, 63, never showed any evidence of wealth as he went daily from his $3-a-week room to his job at the Work Shop Industry tor the. Blind. When he died yesterday, authorities found cash and securities worth more than $34,000 In hfs room. Ruth Hanley, 15. his guide, said she had no idea her charge had •ny money.
