2-Alfdna (la.) Upper D«* Moin«l Thursday, Jun« 16, 1966 Linda Agard and LeRoy Korslund wed at LuVerne ONE OF THE BIGGEST POPULAR fallacies is that all men long for the gay, free bachelor life. What a guy would do if it weren't for all the ball-and-chaln has been built up to what amounts almost to the great American dream. Most husbands think they are supposed to chafe a bit under the responsibilities that come with family life and, theoretically, about the only time they admit to being glad they have offspring is when they can take those deductions at income tax time. And, of course, Father's Day, which comes next Sunday. - o - WOMEN, FROM THE TIME THEY are little girls, know blamed well that the most rewarding experiences in life come from having a home, a husband and children. They are allowed to admit it and they are encouraged to play house. Not so with little boys. If a little boy is unusually preoccupied with dolls, he's considered somewhat of a sissy. "What's the matter with you, kid ? Why ain'tcha out there batting a ball or beating up on the kid next door ?", he is asked. What the child may really be doing is role- playing for what will turn out to be even more thrilling than making the big league ball team - fatherhood I IP WE COULD GET THE guys to be absolutely honest, and we seldom accomplish this, they might tell us that given a choice, they wouldn't want to live any way but tied down and married. After all, In marriage there is a maximum of both temptation and opportunity, and marriage has the sanction of the church, the state and society in general. And it can even be less expensive than bachelorhood if you consider the price of dinner dates with a different blonde every few weeks, upkeep on apartments with all the cooking and cleaning hired, and flowers, gifts, and telephone calls to keep a romance going. Not to mention, the aforementioned nick out of the paycheck for Uncle Sam. - o - MEN DON'T LOOK FORWARD TO fatherhood quite as much as women do to motherhood. But when it happens, either by accident or by plan, men really get hooked. There's nothing more proud than a brand new father handing out cigars. And he has every reason to be so I - o - THE FIRST BIG BONUS OF fatherhood is that a man is really needed. A woman can live quite happily without a husband but if she is a mother of a family without a father around, life becomes infinitely more complicated. You guys who get to feeling like a fifth wheel once in a while should remember this. - o - ANOTHER REASON MEN TAKE TO fatherhood like ducks take to water is that it is such a boost to their vanity. Never before or after will a man get such uncritical admiration as he does from his child until the child is, say about ten years old. "My Dad" can lick anybody, fix anything, and is an unquestioned source of knowledge. I've known some cases when a father was considered so smart that he could have said black was white and his son would believe him. Unfortunately, children get more sophisticated when they reach their teens and often find out that Dad is only human after all. But after a little growing up, Dad becomes something better than an Idol - a good and valued friend. - o - WELL, EVEN IF I HAVEN'T convinced you guys that you are much happier staying home with your wife and kids than you would be having an affair with somebody like Sophia Loren, go ahead and enjoy yourself on Father's Day. Enjoy these gifts - they are the very nicest your money will buy. Live it up while everybody is treating you nice ! - o - THE FIRST HURRICANE OF THE season, Alma, visited us last night (June 8) and has gone on her evil way. This was the closest we have ever been to a bad hurricane but it turned out better than was predicted. Work and schools were dismissed at early afternoon so everybody could go home and tie things down. Stores were cleared in a hurry of bread, cold meat, candles, shower curtains, etc., and I fried chicken and boiled eggs, and filled every available vessel with water. The power was off at our house from 9 p. m. to 6 a. m. and although the actual eye of the storm missed us, it had me fooled for I thought Alma was with us all night long. Only damage at our house was some tree limbs down. Makes us more sympathetic toward people up north with their blizzards and tornadoes. - o - DURING THE WEEK OF June 12 through 18, people having birthdays include Duane Jensen, Rex Voyles, Keli King, Pearl Simpson, Marie Scuffham, D.

It is not easy to do with love, to consider others rather than concentrate on self-preservation. When we become obsessed with self-love, our perspective is shallow; we tend to grasp and take; we never give and share. Man lives with the hope of eternal salvation, and this very hope is founded upon a great sacrifice. Let the example of the life of Christ guide us to a firm stand for right things, an eagerness to do with love in our hearts, then we shall know the rewards of God's love.
