foeeeeeeeeoeeoeaeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee "INK in my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN •eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoeeeeeee Remember the Pied Piper of Hamelih? The piper rid Hamelin of rats. When the town fathers did Hot pay him -he led away the town's children. He had a cause and a purpose. Many of us have a cause. We must be careful that it's not so small a cause that we soon run out of purpose. I know e young woman in one of our Urge cities who was a pied piper at the age of twelve years. Ann, we'll call her, lived in a slum. Her father worked at a packing plant. Her mother also worked part time. They made fair wages but more of it went for liquor than for food, clothing, and warmth. The family's life Was miserable. U was the same with the neighbor children. Ann wanted to seek help from some interested person. Whom could she ask? She often looked longingly across the river. Perhaps over there people cared if children wont hungry and cold. One day the cause loomed.high, the purpose climaxed. She was sent to the store with a dollar arid a list of groceries. She fiercely loved her two little brothers and sister. This day •he bundled them Up and took them with her. The grocery was a magic place, of warmth and light. They admireo wonderful foods they could not afford. Tney looked so longingly at the candy display that Ann recklessly bought them ten cents worth. While they were blissfully enjoying the candy, she bought the groceries, ell but a ton cent can of pork and beans. She decided to steal a can to cover up the candy spree. Several times.she had her hands on the can of beans but could not bring herself to take it. So she went home to take a severe beating. Because of her mother's anger, there was no supper and. the little brothers and sister crept into .bed with Ann to soothe her hurts,and. to keep warm. Cold and hunger awakened them early the next morning. Their parents were sleeping in a liquored stupor. Ann scurried about for a bit of food for them, then put on* all <the clothing they had and took them out of doors. Tney found Bill, the boy next door, and his sister hopping about,, trying to keep warm. Ann end Bill hit upon an idea. They gathered ell the neighbor children and started to cross the river on the ice to the opposite shore. Ann (planned to tell of their plight to anyone who would help. , '' ' Half' way across the' ice broke. They were marooned on an ice island. Their screams attracted people on both shores. Police and firemen rescued them. They told their story at police headquarters. As Ann identified the children, they were taken to their homes. As the ringleader, Ann was turned over to the police matron for the day. A kind and understanding woman, she gave Ann the first real bath she had ever had, even shampooed her hair. She awakened Ann's pride by admiring the girl's hair. She told Ann the welfare workers would try to improve her home. She advised Ann to study eagerly. Soon she would come of age and could carry but her purpose of a . ••• better life/ :.•• - •' -• ;, . . • ,:• ' • •• - = ': The police matron,remained Ann's friend through the following dreadfully hard years but the day came at last! Today Ann is happily married to Bill, has helped her brothers and sister and many others to a better life. There are many more stories about Ann's struggles but they are for another time. Ann did not have too small a cause. She will never run out of purpose. , A freezing method for making salty water fresh enough to drink .has been granted a patent by the U. S. Patent Office. The freeze-crystaillizatkm method is now being tested in two pilot plants at U. S. Department of Interior's Test Station at ,Wrightsville Beacih, N. C., one of which produces 15,000 gallons a. day and the other 200,000 gallons. Several different processes for desalting; water are being investigated at the North Carolina station, which, is operated by; the Interior's Office of Saline Water. A '• • '' •. •.. ; : i ;' ' \ ' : /. - • v. Sea water begins to freeze at 28.4 degrees F., and the ice crystals that then form are essentially salt free. The patent covers a progess for freezing saline water in such a way the ice crystals are sufficiently large and they can 'be easily separated from the remaining brine, drinkable water is then prepared from the crystals. To help in the beautification program, either to keep or to make. America, bsautiful, Allen B. Sharpe and Richard A, Hull of Ottumwa, Iowa, have devised an apparatus for crushing «nd flattening junked automobiles, The machine is sufficiently compact that it can be moved to used car dumps, over public roads on a truck. It crushes the cars in an hydraulically operated jaw so that the flattened car is about six inches high and substantially the same length as it was originally. Mr. Sharp and Mr. Hull assigned rights to patent to Al-Jon, Inc., Ottumwa. Our librarian was able to get Grace Neis Fletcher's book "The Fabulous Flemings of Kathmandu," for me. I hope you do not pass up the reading of this book, the story of two doctors in Nepal. The Flemings, whom the author calls "Silent Samaritans" for they went to Nepal not to preach the cause of Christianity — but to show it by their work; they have brought to a remote isolated part of tha world the kind of medical care that country had never known, Two me/diciai missionaries; Dr. Bob an ornithologist, his wife Beithal a physician, practiced in His name, for they understand that the kingdom of heaven is not situated either in Washington or in Katihmandu, but in the hearts of rnen. In the Christian kindness of Dr. Bob and the luminous, beauty of Dr. Beithal, a beauty that comes from within, quiet as .the cross shining all night in the hospital quadrangle, their way of showing their faith is to demonstrate it by their deeds.
