n in my By MARIAN INMAN Electron day is over. The people have made their choice. As the smoke of the political campaigns clears away the analysts are coming up with reasons for this vote, and that and why this-happened and so on. tiegardless of the reasons the situation is here and we can put 0,1, our hats and get to work. ... I imagine that torn* of the choMn candidate who prom, bed much and »Urt out with • burden of premlm with they had their hat back out of the ring, but it li too late now, .The expression, throwing their hats in the ring, originated in Spain where it was the custom of persons participating in bullfighting to cast .their hats into the-riitg before entering the .arena, All in all, it seemri very appropriate. ^ Hats are many and varied, hats make announcement*, hat* have a lot to say about personality, hats bring good luck and a bit of magic. I believe there b a hat for every occasion, a hat that tells whet the occasion is. There is -a kind of hat that could be labeled a Wife of a Minister hat, .it can't be described in specific terms but it is in- atanfily recognizable. There is also a High-School Principal hat, a lady executive hat, a Volunteer Charity Worker hat, a garden club lady hat, and ; an animal lovers hat. There is even one for women writers wheto the occasion arises. There are librarian hats and bridge-fiend hats. One of the most famous and most quoted hats is the Clubwoman or Madame Chairman hat, which seems to be speaking, on its own calling the meeting to order and asking what funds do we have in the treasury. There are types of hats for queens, for tomboys, mantillas for church and evening, hats, hats of many sites and shapes. I can picture a towering stack of hets one upon 'the other much a» the alphabet hats on the Cat in the Hat story by Dr. Seuss. ' • •'!; . A women Lknow treasures what she calls her Traveling Hat; initially she wore it to keep her hair in place when she was riding in an open car; but the hat quickly became a habit, something she wore whenever she was traveling any distance in a car; and before long she realized that it was essential to the success of every trip the family took. She forgot her hat once, and thai time it rained eight days out of fourteen, a high wind blew the contact lens out of her left eye, the ocean was full of sting rays and the oldest .child was sensationally car-sick four times. With some women, hats become an obsession, to others something long outdated. I love hats and a new hat is the best cure for the blues for me. I am going to, Des .Moines this week and I can wear three kinds of hats. My executive committee hat, my board meeting hat and finally my convention hat. I'll have a fine*tjme in each of them end if they iielp me speak up, well, so much the batter. Wish you could see me. . Eyes tired? Don't retire. Doctors are saying, don't worry if your eyes get tired. There should be nothing alarming about the gradual tiring of eyes, even after the age. of 50. A Dallas Doctor, who has made a life-long study of eye fatigue in middle- age people, said it is safe and desirable to use the eyes, but when,_ fatigue occurs, frequent eye breaks ara advisable. Abraham Lincoln one time defined democracy as a government of the people, for the people end by the people. Democracy, however, to us is more than just a form of government. Its influence enters all phases of our lives and we become democratic in attitude toward our fellow men. Theodore Parker once said, "Democracy means not that I am as good as you are but you are as good as I am." . Democracy and equality go hand in, hand,,but the subject of equality is one which has caused debates ever since democracy achieved a stronghold q».-j|^'>Ji)^'Am)^atetV(dip«itin- enit. Some* would claim that all men are equal. It is upon, this thesis they base their arguments for democracy. Anybody who makes a claim knows little of human nature, human intelligence and human industry. There can be no true equality while some of us are born with better bodies than others, with better minds than others, with traits of industry or perseverance which brings success where those who lack these traits fail. Democracy is not equal!- ty it is only equality of opportunity. Democracy doas not make everybody equal in the sense that everybody is a great singer, a great writer, a great doctor . or a great business man. It-simply gives every person who has talent lor success in any field an opportunity to achieve greatness. , One thing that is characteristic of a democracy and not found in a complete measure in any Other type of government is the right to freedom of thought, freedom of speech and freedom of religious worship. Let's keep on working together to keep these freedoms, working with those whom we have chosen to office in our gov,- eminent and seeing to it that they are worthy of their hire.
