•-ALOONA ()«*•) ADVANCI MONDAY, JULY It, 19M ••••eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee* "INK in my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN •••oeeeeeeeeeeeeoeeoeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeo At the recent summer conference of Iowa Farm Bureau Women, held in Des Moines, Kossuth county was well represented by Mrs. Glen Clark, Swea City, county women's chairman, Mrs, Joseph Skow, Wesley, county women's vice-chairman, and myself as a guest. At the Sunday evening Vesper service, which annually open* this conference, the speaker was the Reverend Robert W. Rae, D.D,, Pastor of Highland Park Presbyterian church In Des Moines. Hi* theme was "Sowing Unto Harvest," which dealt with the thought — as ye sow, so shall ye reap. Dr. Rae compared the law of the harvest to our lives. The type of harvest is decided by the kind of seed planted. According to God's law, each life has its potential yield and has a contribution to make. He commended Farm Bureau women on the many aspects of their program and stressed that wherever man's talents meets human needs there is God's place for him. The future of the world depends on man's spiritual health. He encouraged the women to turn obstacles into opportunities. God seeks to bring His dreams to fruition through us so we are not alone in our efforts. Dr. Rae left us Yates, 'Just For Today.' with these thoughts from John W. "Just for today, I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do some things for twelve hours that would appall me if I felt I had to keep them up for a lifetime." "Just for a day, I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires; I will take my family, my business and my fortune as they come, and adjust myself to them in a mature manner." "Just for today, I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer all day. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration." "Just for today> I will exercise my soul in three ways: (1) I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out; (2) I will do at least two things i don't want to do; (3) 1 will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt." "Just for today, I will have a quiet half hour, all to myself, and relax. In this half hour sometime, I will think of God, so as to get a little more perspective to my life; and strengthen my faith in God and man." "Just for today, I will be unafraid, especially unafraid to be happy, to enjoy what is beautiful, to love, and to believe that those I love, love me." Another challenging speaker was Dr. Robert W. Young, DOS, of Des Moines, that man must cope with a certain number of problems or he is not happy. His talk centered on socialism and he used Sweden as an example. Sweden has complete freedom from want; freedom from class consciousness; a standard of living unequalled outside of the U. S.; they have no slums, no unemployment and are not afraid of communism. On the other hand the people have no incentive. There is not a burning desire to get ahead. The chance for advancement does not prevail and they have no new industries. The only thing in which they excel is the steel industry as they have for many years. In Sweden there is a sameness with everyone that is difficult to cope with. They have the highest rate of illigiti- macy in existence, the third highest rate of suicides and a tremendously 'high rate of crimes. Dr. Young's message was not a diatribe on Sweden, but a warning to us. Is Sweden in a state of degeneration? And are we tipping the scales in the same direction. We talk of making our work days and weeks shorter. This will mean more idle hours for our people. Does happiness exist from not working? What is our path? What are we going to do? How much government is good? These are problems that have existed down through the ages and we will always have to cope with them. The carpenter of Naiareth stated long ago, "Man shall not live by bread alone." Each speech at this conference, every part of the program enlarged on the theme, "On This We Build," and we came away with much food for thought, much challenge to build happier and more useful lives, so we may reap a good harvest. A wise old Englishman admonished, "As you go along the road, hold fast to God with one hand, and open wide the other to your neighbor," His motto can well serve as our foundation. On this we build happier and more useful lives, make a small start in the construction of a better nation and world, and, with each deed of love, erect a beautiful temple to God."
