I I I I li+w+^H-H-1-i-H-f-1-t-H-f This morning we awakened to a winter fantasy. Jack Frost and his little fairy artists had been busy through the night creating the beautiful scenes. Fence rows were laced with intricate patterns of sparkling frost, trees and bushes, the very air was like a lacey screen, lovely to the eye. "The lowliest weed was a thing of beauty." This breath taking beauty could not last, it was too fragile but this glimpse ot beauty stored in our hearts can tide us over some drab days to come and ease the way for us. January 17 is the anniversary of the birthday of Benjamin Franklin, a great exponent of thrift. The national thrift committee calls these days around Franklin's birth, National Thrift Week. Its purpose is to focus attention on the virtues of thrift; to encourage prudent spending and regular savings on the part of American families. If Benjamin Franklin were to look in on us today, he would look over his steel rimmed glasses with honest indignation at the way we interpret thriit today. Our philosophy is puy now, pay tomorrow, it we can't pay then tne government will take care of us. : After the Constitutional Convention wise Benjamin Franklin said, "We have tormed a Republic, it we can keep it." This republic was founded on freedom and liberty. And we whose loreiathers were thrifty and hard working, have become fat and lazy. We like governmental dominence and the nch spoon feeding programs. We drift along the easy way, land has become inflated, taxes are going up and up. The generation growing up now know little of thrift and about saving for a secure future. Why worry, even though the increase in all taxes federal, state and local lor fiscal year liwa was $746 million more than the entire cost oi operating the tederal government in 1939 betore , the beginning ot World War il. And last summer Congress voted to increase the debt limit of the United states Govern- mentto »a^t,U(X),uoO,uoo to cover recent additional lederal borrowing, me average indebtedness lor each man, woman and chilu in the United States is $6,382.00. Where is the limit? Where do we stop? While many of the proposals are desireable, the question we nave to iace is how many can we at tor d? How long can we go on spending money we uo not have? Benjamin Franklin's name is also associated with national punting week celebrated annually during the week ot his oirthday, January 17. This week is set asiue to bring more forcibly 10 tne youth of America in the nations scnoois the democratic principles and wisdom ot benjamin Franklin; to call attention to "wnat printing is, how it wonts, wnat sort 01 career it otters, and why it has a social value aoove almost any other industry." Lord Byron once said that a drop of ink may make a million think. Print is the cneapest mind opener there is and the best. Ail tnat we are is the result ot what we have thought. 'Ihe mind is everything. What we think we become. A true American "is"one'who wants to stand upon-luV own two ieet, solve his own ditncuiues, overcome his hardships, and who can work out his own destiny through all his years. ...... The welfare state would be a tremendous idea—if someone would now just solve the problem ol how to keep it from costing so much to get something for nothing.
