TWO EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1952 Phone 4600 for * WANT AD Taker Mary Hatvvrth's Mail Wltor'i Note: Trained in tincom- pruinf cod* of honenty, moman reari daughter in »»me creed, with painful letulti DEAR MARY HAWORTH: My good wife was reared by a rigid code of honesty; and she is rearing our <l»USht«r Terry (now 10) by the *»me code. The child is growing into *. «nu« unpleasant little character who told no friends. Recently she When I remonstrated, my wife said Terry spoke the truth. If so, I feel the truth is better left unsaid at times. Not long ago rny sister Ann and her husband stopped by to see us. They kept house for me when my wife was confined and always have been kind to us. During the visit my sister said jokingly, "Why don't a neighbor child, almost her ^ u ' ome ° see £ f "I'j^' lone companion nowadays, "Your d °? l yo " "*« m f ? 1( L W *! eh TO mother is a dirty housekeeper;"my * lfe " pUed , dead P a % T llke . ^ aether aalrf " for wnafc >' ou ve done for us; but ; | can't understand people who don't tell the truth." Smarting at the impltcaMon, my sister and her husband asked what Amy meant, and she cited instances of "social lies," in which Amy had told someone she would be "glad" to do them a favor; that it would be "HO bother." My wife insisted that Ann hadn't sincerely felt that way; and should have told the truth. Other people's "honesty"is a fetish with her. I no longer bring office friends home, for fear she'll start a. real feud; and most of all I mind what she is doing to Terry. When we were going together, and early in marriage, I got a kick out of Amy's honesty. Then it was alJ sweetly favorable to me; but nowadays she hasn't a good work for me; and finds it necessary to say many unkind "truths." I am not the man she thought I Quits Laxatives —finds amazing relief "Had tried metrjod after method to relieve constipation, until I lost faith," admits New Jersey woman.

The spirit has gone out of marriage, though I expect to stick, for Terry's sake, i uon't know how to meet Amy's arguments in favor ot •truth;"—anything I say seems so lame. What is the answer? W. P. /* Such Honesty Welcomed By Her? DEAR W. P.: If we were to apply Amy's criteria of truth and honesty to her own fallible performance ,it would be necessary to point out, to her face, the following: She is shrewish, nagging and hateful in the role of wife. She is a self righteous gossip and busybody in the role of neighbor. And in leading her child to think that bumptious rude faultfinding is a virtue in social interchange, she is a bad influence in the role of mother. Altogether, she poisons every relationship in which she figures, Or, taking the diagnostic view, it were factual to say that Amy is a neurotic character. She is scarred by a benighted brand of rearing, in which hereditary patterns of hostile rejecting attitudes towards people were piously justified,—in the name of "honest" sentiments. The crux of Amy's difficulty lies not in others' flaw*, but in her Ingrained hostility. She involuntarily evaulates individuals through unloving eyes. As your sister intuitively knew, Amy doesn't "like" her—or any person, self included, I may add. It is this inner negativism that accounts for her dour .dissatisfaction with marriage. And I am sure she disdainfully tickets your mild endurance of her carping as evidence af unmanly caliber,—due to her training in the theory that a gouging exchange of criticism signifies moral backbone. Love Encompasses Spiritual Truth The Bible says: "If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man."

In Amy's lexicon, it is her narrow value-judgment of what she sees. But in the spiritual sense, truth has to do with underlying "laws of life that inexorably determine results—whether one instinctively obeys or ignorantly flouts them. And it is my understanding that the essential law of life, the "truth" to be applied to human relations, has to do with loving-kindness, practised in thought and word and action, gee Luke 10:27. M.

Bills No Joke, One Located In Hagerstown HAGERSTOWN — Three dollar bills—the subject of many a joke- actually were in use here a little over a century ago. John L. Miller, well known Ui this area as a collector of old money, recently came across just such an "animal" in his own collection. He figures he had it for several years, having probabl;- procured it with a group of old coins he bought from a fellow collector— but never realized before what an oddity it was. The United States has never issued a three-dollar bill, but back in the 1860's, when the currency in circulation was critically short, the Treasury Department had an engraving made for a new series of five-dollar bills, and a revolutionary series of three-dollar bills using the same design. Before the tri-dollars were released, though, the depart- ment changed its collective mind, and none were ever circulated. In 1869, however, with the volume of paper money In circulation still limited (because in f ,hose days no one had yet gotten the bright idea of printing notes without backing), Congress took a drastic move—apparently encouraging a type of legalized counterfeiting. By an act ot May 10 of that year, merchants •and manufacturers were permitted to issue currency backed by their j own bank accounts. The previously! unused gravings of the throe-dollar bill were made available to implement this plan, along with engraving for bills of other denominations. This type of mercantile currency appeared at first glance to be bona- fide U. S. notes. On the face of each bill, however, was the name ol the merchant or firm which had issued it as a guarantee it was back- Cheap Expedition ed by a local bank. j Lewis and Clark made one of the The few facts known about this | most important expeditions in unusual piece of currency have been!

It is an active, working freedom for every citizen to enjoy. Here, a total of 50 churches, representing 28 different faiths, minister to the religious needs of the people. These things, along witLeach person's own ch"o!c5 of creed, are part and parcel of a free society and individual freedom. As we see only too clearly every day in other parts of the world, when freedom of religion is lost, not only democracy but the very rights of the individual must perish. In addition, there are many men and women who support church activities while belonging to no particular group. Thousands of children regularly attend Sunday School classes where they learn the ideals for good and decent citizenship which will stay with them through life. Most Amcelle employees are members of a church' and follow its precepts in their daily lives. Their fundamental belief in religion, democracy, and the American economic system are important factors in the developing teamwork which is bringing Amcelle to a position of leadership in the industry. However, church attendance and support do not make up the whole picture. Another measure is the community's support of its charitable institutions through which the ill, the disabled, and the destitute receive needed assistance. This is one of the fundamentals of all religion, to care for the needy. The good and lasting effects of this practice of faith are shown in the individual's standard of conduct and in a wholesome pattern for the community life. CORPORATION OF AMERICA
