2—ALGONA (Iowa) ADVANCE THURSDAY, SEPT. 8, 1966 ••••••••••*••••••••••••••••••*•«••••••••*•*•••••» "INK In my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN ••••*•••••*•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Labor day observance in the United States Was selected to fall at a time between the close of the summer holidays and the resuming of business activity in the fall. The designated date is the first Monday in September. This year the date was September 5th. Labor day is marked as a definite national holiday honoring working men and women. It represents "the industrial spirit", the great vital force of the nation. A day to honor labor. My Mother taught us the fact that all labor has dignity if we perform it with dignity. Her philosophy was that the task at hand never lacks dignity. I recall reading in a study of General Ulysses S. Grant, his statement, "Labor disgraces no man; unfortunately, you occasionally find a man who disgraces labor." ' Who is this labor we talk about? It is the millions of American men and women, our neighbors, our friends, the people who live next door to us, the couple who live upstairs, the people who help pay the taxes of the United States, whose sons have supplied a large percentage of the armed forces in time of war, the people who have built this great country and who have contributed their time and money and their blood in every important moment of its existence. No man is born into the world whose work is not born with him; there is always work, and tools to work withal, for those who will; and blessed are the horny hands of toil. James Russell Lowell. Our responsibility never ceases. I think back to the time when our oldest son was a little boy and liked so much to , play "grown-up." When Mr. Inman came into the house froht doing chores, little Paul liked to step into his dad's boots and stomp about playing he was a man. Almost more boots than little boy. When Mr. Inman went out to finish the day's chores, Paul would say, "Daddy, don't do all of the chores, save some for me when I am a man." Well, he is a man now and he has learned that the chores are never finished, in the home, on the farm, in business, in the community and in the world. There is always something to do and a decision to make as to which pair of boots to step into. When we have decided for ourselves which pair of boots then we must take strides in these boots. They must be more than something to admire, they must walk. As I go about my daily tasks, I've thought how wonderful it is to live in America where we can choose our boots, where .labor is respected and dignified, where we work but we are not slaves, where we are our man to choose our job and are free to enjoy the fruits of our labor. The American way of life is our precious heritage to defend and cherish. We gripe about so many things—cost of living, taxes, what government does or does not do, but our America is a special place because we can gripe, let off steam and then don the boots of our choosing and do something about it. Today we in America need a slogan to arouse, our enthusiasm and determination. Americans have'always been moved by slogans. A slogan to arouse our enthusiasm to defend our way of life and bring the story of democracy to the world. This is just part of our responsibility of citizenship. Good citizenship should begin in our own community. We must love our own homes and be good citizens there before we can be like the pebble dropped into the water with ever widening circles until the influence of our citizenship reaches throughout the entire nation. : We do enjoy freedom in our America, freedom to make the choices we want, but hand in hand with our freedom must go responsibility. Have you ever thought that with freedom their 1 must be restraint? If each of us had absolute freedom we would soon be encroaching upon the liberties of .'others. We have freedom to accumulate property but this does not include the right to use it as We please. We have freedom to drive automobiles but we can't drive as we please. There are , traffic laws to obey so we do not speed and go through traffic lights. We have freedom of speech but this dpej not mean to cry "fire" in a crowded theatre. So along with freedom goes responsibility that, spells restraint, else freedom can equal anarchy. Here is a thoughtful bit that I read not long ago in a medical journal. A tourist spending the night in a small Vermont town joined several men sitting on the porch of the general store. They were a taciturn bunch and after several vain attempts to start a conversation, he finally asked, "Is there a law against talking in this town?" "No law against it," answered one of the men. "But there's an understanding no one's to speak unless he is sure he pan improve on the silence." More presidents and ex-presidents of the United States were alive at the time of the inauguration of President Lincoln than at any other time in the history of the country, At that time, beside Lincoln, there were Van Buroit, Tyler, Fill».ior«, Pierce and Buchanan, all living former presidents. , This past week I have seen three beautiful Seeing Eye £>ogs. I had just read in a magazine that these dogs can bs trained more quickly to lead a blind man than a blind man can* be trained to follow a dogv It takes about three months to train a dog to lead the blind, but a blind man requires a longer period of instruction to' follow the dog. Recently an author of many beloved children's book* described thus her idea of a good book for children: "It has grass and earth and familiar things on a level with the child's \ eyes; but it also has treetops and wind and stars to draw his gaze upward." Edith Patterson Meyer. Book-of4he-M0nth Club News says that a recent survey of more than 15,000 corporation officers and executives, shows that 55% of them read more than ten books a year, and 19% more than 25 books a year. Books are windows for our minds and never has clear vision been more needed.
