"INK in my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN •••••••••••••eeeeeeeeeeeeeteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee This past week 1 did something 1 have not done for a few years. With Granddaughter Marjorie, 1 took a long hike on the farm. We went througn the sand pit* picking odd and beautiful rocks, laid them in a pile and continued on. Came up under the bridge on one side, crossed over and down on the opposite side and on around the river to the site of * former dam. i »i Her * ' r ** tfd iwhiu «nd Mariori* went en to return • Uttlt later with tern* lovely fungu* growths lor fell tlower arrangements, one of the things I started out to find. The day was cool and quiet and we set by the water to watch and listen and quietly discuss further plens for our hike. After awhile we started back, picking wild flowers on the way. Phil and his family were on vacation and their little dog Brownie was happy for our company and raced ahead of us. Lver so often he tiushed out a rabbit but was never last enough for it but seemed to enjoy the race. Collecting our rocks at tue sand pit we came home to rest and sort out our loot. Marjorie returned home with her parents on Friday afternoon and by evening Phil's were back and the little tolks dashed over to tell me of their wonderful adventures, happy and bubbling over with pleasure. On Sunday I enjoyed the Lone Rock Legion and Auxiliary picnic, at the i-enton park. This is a vary special group ot people some of whom 1 have known a long time and some wno are new friends. Wonderful food and conversation, on a day of ideal weather. Fenton park is a wonder!ui place tor cnndren ana small enough so that you can keep your eye on them ana enjoy grown-up talk at the same time. A uay to be remembered. August days are slipping by. Last night's rain helped all growing things take on a lusn beauty, almost outdoing themselves as though they can hear a faint warning of autumn and early frosts in the air. National Aviation Day is over, Hawaii has been our 50th state lor seven years and soon President Lyndon B. Johnson will celebrate a birthday. There is evidence of moral decay through all classes of our society. One tends to dread what we read in our daily papers. Among the privileged class we find a growing callousness to human misery. Among the underprivileged classes there is a growing feeling that society owes them a living and prefer to get by without the old-tashioned traits of per severance and hard work. There should be but two goals in life and they are not the winning ot fame and fortune. Instead, they are self-preservation anu service to others. The person who serves otneis uenves true satisfaction from life. The person who is good, Kind and considerate is helping to rearm our country morally. The remedy for many local, national and international ills may lie in the return to these simple home truths that most ot us learned in childhood and which many of us have forgotten and neglected—honesty, purity, unselfishness and love. "Friends and neighbors, the taxes are indeed heavy, and if those laid on by the government were the only ones we nad to pay, we might more easily discharge them; but we have many others, and much more grevious to some of us. We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride, and tour times as much by our folly; and from these taxes the commissioners cannot ease or deliver us." The above which is true today was quoted by Ben Franklin in 1758. Sometimes we become impatient with our task because we are so slow in achieving it. Most of us are too much in a hurry about everything we do. We want things to grow overnight like mushrooms. Important results don't happen that quickly. We must plan carelully and work constantly at our task so that someday we may complete it as we wish. A most important piece of advice is, "Don't look too far ahead or you won't see how far you have come." Take it a day at a time, you'll get there if you are steady. We live in an age when we almost worship security and demand protection against every possibility of loss of income or failure to maintain our living standard at its present level. This is in most ways unfortunate because such protection or security often holds us back from taking full advantage of our oportunities, which our forefathers always enjoyed under a system of free enterprise. Sometimes too much security can be disastrous. There' are times when a certain amount of risk insures greater success. Courage and daring usually bring their own results. A person who is willing to take a risk, and has the courage and ability to back up his decision, can in most cases gain success in almost any undertaking. We must have the courage to take the risk for what we believe is right. We cannot substitute security for courage, as more aggressive people will take over all we possess and make slaves of us. In slavery we will find the true state of security, no worries about where we are going to eat or sleep or work. We will have everything but liberty, freedom and the right to make the most of opportunity.

When times are tough and the struggle is hard, we should not become too discouraged. Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise for us and we have our opportunity to lay the foundation for a secure future and sound prosperity. In all of our towns and cities there are campaigns "buy at home" "patronize home industry" and so on. The theory back of these campaigns is that a community can prosper only as its members prosper and such prosperity will be possible only if the people of the community support the various business and industrial institutions located in their midst. I am for this but I also feel that our home businesses and industries have a responsibility to give the service to attract our patronage. They must improve quantity and quality. We'll respond. Then our community will be for the welfare of all. We'll recognize this and patronize our local merchants and industries so we are helping to pay city taxes, maintain schools, provide police and fire protection and many other facilities offered by the community. Only together can we help ourselves to the better things in life. "Be not simply good; be good for something."
