MONDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1970 -THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Page 3 Life is Worth Living Prairie Extension Club Meets Claim the Universe Sow to yourselves in righteous-, ness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. (Hos. 10:12) The still of winter settles upon the earth, stripping the trees of their colorful foliage and leaving the grass barron. Yet, the chan-, ge is just for a little while. The trees stand stately and tall resting in nature until due season when God's rain and sunshine will once again bring forth the sprouting leaf buds. Life has many seasons in which quietness and growth each play an important role. There must be times of silent observation and waiting where we can evaluate our place in the world and our true relationship with God. These periods of time are as important to living a fulfilled life as time spent actively doing our daily tasks. We must, however, watch that we do not lead an idle life for there is no gain or reward in fallow ground. As we search for meaning and purpose in life, we turn to active faith, sowing constructive efforts for the benefit of all mankind. Living on fallow ground bears no fruit and we soon find ourselves stagnated and without goals, living a humdrum existence. The whole universe is at our fingertips waiting to be claimed. Opportunities, knowledge, guidance to a better life is available to all who would seek the challenges. Christ is ever waiting for us to trust in His promise-"ask and it shall be given to you." Life takes on new meaning when we lean towards God for wisdom, waiting patiently for His direction and then moving forth in active faith as the doors open leading to that purpose in life He planned for us.

I (Advertisement) i Let the Holidays Go to Your Head : If you were twisted, pinched, squeezed, tinted and baked over and over again, how would you feel? Like Scrooge, undoubtedly. I "Yet. this is the way women treat their hair—and they expect it to be as shiny as a tinsel-trimmed package," explains Alberto Rottura. leading New York hair stylist. For holiday parties, he decks coiffures with ornaments. To create" his style (left), you comb back all shoulder length hair, except short cheek curls, and pull it. through a pony-tail holder decorated with imitation holly berries and leaves. Roll hair under and pin into a bun. Rottura has more than festive styling on his mind. He is concerned with the damage women do to their hair and he suggests a solution to this problem. The stylist advises shampooing as often as < needed followed by ' .'-> conditioning for all hair types. "Many women overlook con-•- ' • ' ditioning because they think It has to be extra time-consuming, but this need not be so," he says. i The stylist explains that "Twice As Nice," a new liquid shampoo and conditioner in one, with a visible layer of golden conditioner on top, accomplishes both steps in one process. Custom-formulated by Lever Brothers in three, different colors for dry, normal and oily hair, this new shampoo pampers hair abused by too many settings and gadgets and makes up for the loss of precious oils from exposure to the elements. It is safe for tinted hair. "Clean, super-manageable hair is essential for pretty holiday hairdos and for creating new natural-looking styling at all times." says Rottura. These are easy to achieve with a shampoo and conditioner that leaves hair tangle- free when wet, lustrous and without frizziness when combed into a sleek style. Happy Holidays! John W.

Would it occur to these conceited fellows that we don't think they are that great? I prefer to choose carefully, and take my time about it. Yet I get the same old line, "What's a matter — you got a hangup about sex?" ' ; I guess they figure to make us fell "repressed" and inadequate so we'll immediately prove we aren't Well, it doesn't work that way. I figure men who accuse me of having a "hangup" see women as stupid things to be conquered — and they start first with belittling words. They don't, get another chance. . .which is a shame because some of these dates might have developed into nice relationships, with the proper timing. How do you derail a one-track mind? —BACHELOR GIRL Dear Bach: You might throw the switch before he gets rolling: Tell him early on that your biggest -hangup is men who ask "What'sa matter -- you got a hangup?" —H. Dear Helen: I'm 46, a divorcee, but not a gay one. I do not approve of unmarried relationships. I was recently introduced to a man who took me out twice, was quite "bold," but I kept him in his place, explaining my moral values. He said I should loosen up, so on the third date • I wore a shocking pink short dress trimmed in purple. He never came back. Would putting on that wild dress be the reason?—JILTED AGAIN Dear Jilted: • More likely the reason is: You wouldn't take it off. Sorry; but see above, re hangups. — H. Dear Helen: , Is this a new trend? I always thought women were anxious to marry again, once they became widows. But almost without exception, the older "singles" I know prefer remaining that way. "Why tie yourself up to an old codger you may have to. nurse for the rest of his life?" they say. They quote statistics about men being the weaker sex, more prone to diseases of the elderly, and add, "If you get one, you'll have a liability on your hands." So they prefer non-permanent arrangements, which means they can walk out any time the old boy starts ailing. Besides, "you keep your Social Security that way." Now this makes it rough on "old boys" who weren't that "modern." Fm a strong, healthy, 65-year-old widower, and I can have my pick of nice widows, but not one will marry me. Talk about the "new morality!" It hasn't happened only to the young! —SHOCKED BY ELDERLY BELLES Dear Shocked: .. Well, if that's the way your elderly belles bounce. I .But surely a strong, healthy eligible widower can make one ring only for youl —H. Dear Helen: In the human flood, as in any other,.trash floats to the top and is first seen. So when "Unfair" downgrades all women because a few get drunk and live easy, he's being as "unfair" as the reactionary who calls all kids "longhaired hippies.",—AGAINST GENERALIZATIONS •Nativity Program Slated The Miami-Bennett's Switch United Methodist Churches will Stage a live Nativity in the parking area of the Bennett's Switch Church on State Road 18 one mile east at U.S. Highway 31 from 6:30 to 11 p.m. on Sunday December 20.
