"INK In my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN October has come over the hills atid 1 a'ft..'reminded of one of Inez Hind's poems: "v» "The hills are dressed up in a colorfiiV way Ih their red, brown, yellow, and g/eert, And over them all hangs a lavende^'naze* With purple vales lying between;/. These paintings by God beneath' the blue sky My conception of beauty fulfils, And I wish — o, 1 wish! — tfiat an artist were 1, When October, comes over tJhe hills!" After yesterday's high Winds, the ground around my walnut tree is covered with t!/y» f«|{e n nuti, Wi pl*n to gather them after school and Keng them up to dry In net sacks. Neighbor friends brought n,fe . gift of apples and today I had baked apple and cream for my dessert. Mmmm, delicious. I read that U. F/farm exports hit an all-time high of $6.7 billion during the year ending June 30, 1986, according to a recent report. This 'is $600 million above the previous record set last year. All the/increase was in commercial exports which are helpful in mair.n'taining a balance of payments. Most of these increased experts were in wheat, feed grains and oilseeds. Japan remains the/ biggest customer for U. S. farm exports. According to USDA, both farm prices and costs went up in the second quarter of 1966 and the parity ratio edged up from 79 to 80 per cent. Although food costs arc 7 per cent higher than /a year ago, Americans are spending only 18.2 per cent of* their disposable income for food, compared to 18.4 per cent last year. Food is still our best bargain. Oh the average, $3 has been returned to the farmer, for every $1 (Invested in fertilizer. Yet farmers commonly use less than the most profitable rate of fertilization on their crops. "What was good enough for my father is good enough for me" may be poor philosophy when' it comes to plumbing, school systems and teachers' salaries, but it is a good brake upon our too reckless and wasteful headlong living. Many things that were good for our fathers would recapture the meditative faith and sincerity of worship which those slower 'ways encouraged. . :'-• We had a short but pleasant visit today with Karl Kiilsholm who is campaigning for the office of state representative on the republican ticket. A clean, an honest man, a man whom ,we can be proud of is on our ballot-this fall when .we vote our .choice at the polls. Be sure you exercise your privilege of voting. This is a part of our responsibility of citizenship. Governments, science, industry, politics, morals — all of these are of man. Each has its problem, each a part of the life of man. As we recite the problems ahead, we must remember that none can be solved without men— and our biggest problem is men. There should, be but two goals in life and they are not the winning of fame and fortune. Instead, they are self preservation and service to others. The person who serves others derives true satisfaction from life. The person who is good, kind and considerate is helping re-arm our country morally. Life must be lived in light and sunshine to be worth living. The diamond in the sunlight, absorbing beautiful atmosphere, is itself beautiful, but in darkness the costliest diamond is dull and lacks luster. Service and kindness are the light and sunshine of our lives. .,.• .../. One of the best pieces- : of advice ; -r'have heard is this 5 " one: Instead of sitting around and waiting to go to heaven, why not make heaven out of your surroundings? The Iowa Development Commission will join with 17 state-wide associations in observing "Salute Industry Month" .during October. Industrial development groups, Chambers of Commerce, press, radio and television stations, banking, transportation, restaurant, and educational groups are urged ' to sponsor local observances honoring industries in their communities. It is not too early to think of Christmas, overseas mail. Persons sending Christmas gifts to armed-forces personnel stationed overseas are advised by the post office department to mail as early as possible, and no later than November 10. It is not generally known that Mark Twain, the famous American humorist, wrote an autobiography but it will not be published until the year 2010. Mark Twain specified that this story of his life, as written by himself, should not be offered to the public until one hundred years after his death. Mark Twain didn't have much business judgment but he had a highly developed sense of responsibility. A wealthy friend offered to settle all of his debts at fifty cents on the dollar and friends sent in contributions. Mark Twain refused all of these offers and instead took to the lecture platform, although .he hated it, and traveled around the world, sacrificing six years of his life to repay his debts in full. You Jcnow, I'd like to be around in 2010 to read his autobiography: ' • , , It has been said that rebellion against your handicaps gets you nowhere. Self-pity gets you nowhere. One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world, 'making the most of one's best. "It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little. Do what you can." ,. "When the best things are not possible, the best may bo made of those that are."
