"/NK in my VE/NS" By MARIAN INMAN MONDAY, NOV. 1, 1 W« - ALOONA, I6WA We live in an age when we alhiost worship security and demand protection against every'possibility of loss of income of failure to maintain our living standard at its present level. This is in many ways unfortunate because such protection or security often holds us back from taking full advantage of our opportunities, which our forefathers always enjoyed under a system of free enterprise. We must have the courage to take, the risk for what we believe is right. Wt cannot substitute security for courage, at more «g- grestive ptople will ttkt over all wt posses* and. make slave* of us. In slavery we will find the true state ef 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. : If we cannot have all these things and security too, how much better it is to have courage with freedom than slavery with security. v We need enthusiasm to help us make bur daily tasks more, palatable. But ever •» often our enthusiasm buds need refueling. We find it hard, really a tough proposition to get hold of this elusive stuff enthusiasm which stems to evade us as readily as quicksilver: Reading surely helps. And probably the wisest reading is that which includes both the maga- lines of general interest aa well as well-eelected articles in one's own .field. Conversations with fellow.workers helps, if there is e sprightly exchange of ideas instead of endlass argument. This often leads to a renewed spirit of achievement. And we must try to act enthusiestic and we'll actually grow to feel enthusiastic. « • ' We can find the meaning of enthusiasm in the word itself. It is formed from two Greek words meaning in and God. Enthusiasm is either God or spirit inside us. Not something to be put on like a topcoat. So the reeding of a good book, perhaps a talk with our priest or minister, a family get-to-gether, may get to the heart of our lag of enthusiasm. Surely zest doas not come from anything outside. And it is more valuable than capital, for it makes capital. Don't fight enthusiasm or it dies. We can wsely check on our enthusiasms as we would the gasoline supply in our car. They are the fire of the soul. The celebrated Chinese Philosopher Confucius had some rules of life that are as timely today as when we wrote them long ago. , Confucius said, "The rule of life is to be found within yourself, Ask your constantly, "What is the right thing to do?" Beware of ever doing that which you are likely, sooner or later, to repent having done. It is better td live in peace than in bitterness and strife. It is better to believe in your neighbors than to fear and distrust them. I The superior man does not wrangle. He is firm but not quarrelsome. He is sociable but not clannish. The superior man sets a good example to his neighbors He is considerate of their feelings and their property. Consideration for others is the basis of a good life, a good society. • . Feel kindly toward everyone. Be friendly and pleasant among yourselves. Be generous and fair." It has been said that nobody grows old merely living a number of years; people, only grow old by deserting their ideals. NoV. is youth simply a matter of ripe cheeks and supple knees. Youth is a temper of the will; a quality of the imagination, a vigour of the emotions, and a freshness of the deep springs of life. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up' enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Whether seventeen or seventy, if there is in one's heart the love of wonder, the childlike appetite of what's next, and the courage to play the game as the rules are written, that person is young. "Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing." Oliver Wendell Holmes once ,said, "To be seventy years young is sometimes far more cheerful and hopeful than to be forty years old." I couldn't agree with him more. And even,if my birthday cannot hold all the years candles, I still like birthdays and after awhile one forgets another year is added. Happy birthday to me. • The moment we feel ourselves getting moody and miserable, we should seek Divine support by prayer, and then set ourselves a task at once. Something that will compel us to exert ourselves, and we'll be surprised at the relief it will afford us. We need to especially employ ourselves in doing good, and softening the sorrow of others: for while we are taking a thorn from the botom of another, we will lose the one which rankles in our own. Occupation cures one half of life's troubles, and tend: to soften the remainder. So be happy. Be enthusiastic. Sing at your work. Think of others before you think of yourself. Make the most of small everyday moments. Be peaceable. Be cheerful. Be true. See you at me election polls November 6th.
