-A; .SONA (low*) ADVANCE MONDAY, AUG. 8, 19e« •••••••••••••••••••••••••*•••••••••••••*••••••••• "INK in my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN • ••••••••• e) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Friendship Day, August first, was originated by a greeting- card manufacturer, and thus has some commercial connotations. But there are many who feel we really should have a special day set apart to remember our friends With tokens of appreciation. The day has thus attained some usage, and may in due course become quite generally recognized. NO FINER FRIEND Sometimes a dullness clouds your mind . . . And sort of shrouds your view . . . And then someone approaches and . . . brings confidence to you . . . Someone who pats you on the back . . . For something you have done . . . And honestly believes in you ... in battles to be won . . . Who lifts you from your lethargy ... or maybe your despair . . . And who revives your courage and . . . Your readiness to dare . . . Well, if and when that happens, you . . . May write it in your book . . . There is no greater friend on earth ... No m*t»T where you look . . . There is no finer person than . . . The on* who takes your hand . . . and leads you to the peaceful place . . . Where people understand. — James J. Metcalfe Cultivating a friend is like traveling in a country. Perhaps it is a new country and one is discovering the interesting things about it. Perhaps it is a realm one knows and loves and likes to return to. Friendliness in the long run calls forth friendliness? kindness breeds kindness, and active goodwill multiplies. Without friends we would be very lonely. "May old friends seek you out and new friends prove themselves and all life's good things gravitate to you." The mistress was showing her new maid around the house. As they came to the dining room the mistress said, "This dining table goes back to Louis the 14th." That's nothing replied the maid, "My whole living room set goes back to Sears the 15th." It was such a busy time on the farm when daughter Alice Mary and her family were here but we had a wonderful time. Her children were so pleased to see the place where their Mother was a little girl and Alice Mary herself was happy to see well loved familiar things she grew up with. They brought me an air conditioner and for the first few hot humid days of their visit it was a comfort. That is when we could keep the doors closed. Since their departure our weather has been delightfully cool but if it turns hot I'll turn on the conditioner and enjoy the relief. I read an inteersting fact the other day, "It is a strange fact that whenever the moon is directly overhead or on the directly opposite side of the world every object on this earth loses a little weight as a result in the shift of the pull of gravity. The loss of weight to a human being would not be perceptible. A weight of four thousand tons would lose exactly one pound when the moon passes directly overhead. Also, as the earth approaches closer to the sun, there is a loss of weight by everything on this world, and, should the earth approach close enough to the sun, a two-hundred pound man would weigh no more than a newborn baby." Did you know that in early days authors were paid by printers in copies of their books? It was left to the authors to convert these volumes into money; In 1514 John Froben, printer of Basel, Switzerland, arranged with the great scholar Erasmus to pay cash for his work". Thus came into existence the present system of authors receiving cash payment for their writings. In spite of the many misdeeds we hear of as done by our youth, be assured these number only a small percentage. We do not hear so much about the worthy ones and their number is far greater than these who have errored. Instead of griping about them we should ask ourselves what kind of example we have been to them. In our present times our young generation is growing up without the opportunity of learning certain habits which will teach them to adapt themselves to regular schedules of work. In the past every member of the family had certain responsibilities and chores to perform daily. Today most growing children are completely free of any horn* responsibilities and even their parents no longer find themselves so tied down. As a result home life has suffered and parents are generally inclined to shift the responsibility of child training to our schools. The result of this has been to develop a generation which is interested in its comfort and convenience and look* upon work as a special hardship and something which should be done as cautiously as possible and as few hours a day as necessity requires. Because of this attitude, most of our young people do not develop their talents to the utmost or make full use of, their natural capacities. . , . . , , . ••.-I .«,'-&, )l • r ! 1 , v V • • ; '. >' I • ' is the greatest force in the world for character building through practical effort. Just as religion will build character through the spirit and mind, so work creates character by allowing one to earn the respect of others. The man who works and can hold a regular job or be otherwise employed knows that his services are of value and that his life is important to others. Let's think more in terms of work for our youth than in terms of more and more recreation. A balance of each is good, is healthy. Let's be sure that we accept our responsibility to give our youth the inspiration to face life with courage, that they may be able to meet whatever conditions that may befall them courageously. There will be no time left over for wrongdoing and they will be happier. The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. Have we given our youth the knowledge that they must seek happiness in their own way? That happiness isn't a question of having things: it is a question of enjoying things. Haven't we made the mistake of giving them too much? The boy of today, surrounded by libraries, somehow misses what Lincoln got from his books by the fireside. The boy surrounded by playgrounds and swimming pools doesn't get' half the fun out of life that came to Whittier's barefoot boy. We are so busy paying attention to the so-called big things in life that we overlook the small things. This is where w*> are foolish, because it is the small things in life that are important to us. It is the little things that count. Look at the horse and the wasp. Any one would rather sit on a horse than a wasp. A tiny atom contains more energy than a huge power plant. An insignificant termite can destroy a building that resists the fore* of a storm. Much happiness is overlooked because it doesn't cost anything.
