"INK in my VEINS" IIIH By MARIAN INMAN >M"H"l-H"l'Hr|-|-|rii-H-f-n t-l-l-l mi IITI-M Last week we talked about thrift. Thrift in our personal budget and thrift in our government's budget. But right alohg with money savings we must not overlook another kind of savings account. One that is like drinking at the fountain of youth, one that will keep our hearts young and enrich our older years. One account that never runs out, but brings tenfold interest in return for what we put into it. What i» thli kind of bank account? Th« depo.it* art mad* in tha companionship and Underitanriing feve wo fivo our childron in thair growing up year*. Our Iriterett In thfcir homo life, their religion* ilia, their tcheol life, their 4-H club or other youth actlvtie*. Making the home a center where they and their friend* enjoy being, whero , they are proud to bring friend*. A home where love, and family fellowship abide, a pleatant welcome place for happy timet and an understanding Haven for troubled time*. - For years the local hoys 4-H club held their picnic dinner at our farm on club tour day. Many and many a girls 4-H event has been held here. Mr Intnan led the hoys club for several years and one of our sons assisted the club in later years. Some of my happiest experiences Were in the years I served as girls 4-H leader. Our three sons and three daughters were 4-H'ers. Many a little girl did some canning in our kitchen to achieve her food preservation goal (some Of the mothers did not have time or patience to , help them), and evidence of demonstration teams strewed ou> house through the summers, a nice kind of clutter for people lived and worked together here. ;' "Milk is nature's most nearly perfect food" — so we started a custard demonstration. We made custards for our entire township for practice. We refinished furniture. We learned how to care for hosiery and shoes. Each of the girls is a mother now, and I expect we will never forget our -fun and hard work together. Those were extremely busy days for me on the farm, but I am glad I always answered a call to the door to see how fine the 4-H club calf was, how he Was growing. I, tan still hear them say — "See, how he leads,, Mother." When the boys were away in the Army. I thought of their little boy faces, their pride in their 4-H projects, and was comforted that I took some time out to work and play with them. They do grow up v» fast. j We draw upon this bank account so often. Seems where ever I go some nice note of hospitality comes to me from .school friends of the girls and I spend some pleasant time learning to know their nice little families. To be with all of these nice young people again really rolls back the years. Some few year* ago, a young mother ?n bur community (not one of my 4-H girls) said to me, "Mrs Inman, if I thought I would have to wait as long as you have for the many conveniences you now enjoy, I'd give up today." I tried to help her see that conveniences are not all there is to life. They are nice, 'tis true, but if in' the years our children were growing up we had pined for conveniences, we would have missed those precious years of working and playing and planning together. I'd have no wonderful bank account to draw memories from today. We have so few years to be together and we must never put off doing things together as the perfect day, the day when allis just so, doesn't come. We must make with what we have as we go along. So fill your bank account of human relations now so that you have a tree- ; sure store to draw upon. 200 50th wedding for Johnsons Swea-f «gl« — More than 200 attended an open house at the unday visitots at August ftobitt- Grace Lutheran church, Fairmont* Dec. 27, for the John C.
