He is really a bully you know and it will be his last roar for this year. Then April showers will bring May flowers, and if the showers are a bit snow like they are moisture and will bring the greening. Last evening I had a phone call from Shirley Renger Licktieg of Algena. We discussed tour dough bread, the weather and past 4-H day*. Shirley was net in club while I was leader but the girl* met here occationally and the remembered the good timea and the home made bread. It Wat to pleatant te hear her nice young voice and I am to proud of her, the bake* all the bread they eat. ;' When the song, "Catch a Falling Star", was being sung '^everywhere several years ago 1 remember telling a " youth group to catch all the stars they could and fiem in their pockets for a rainy day. So many things irs to tuck away for rainy days. Smiles, kind deeds, favors and the like. Shirley's call on Sunday night rtstar that brightened my evening and I was glad that any little kindness I had done for her was tucked in my pocket, to pull out and enjoy on an otherwise lonely evening. l; l believe in the joy of our everydays. I believe in the beauty of humble ways. I believe that in sharing and caring and giving, we reach the heart of life's living. Fast and abstinence are excellent lenten penances. We can also gain merit by doing for a religious reason some of the not-so-pleasant tasks of our everyday life. Like attending meetings of our farm organization and other groups we belong to, discuss farm problems without losing our temper, write a letter to our congressman, volunteer for some civic task and remember to smile. As soon as the snows melt is an appropriate time to begin a clean-up project on our farms end city lots. Besides being a morale booster, this is also a safety measure.' , Weren't you proud to read the story of the farmer's night school of Algona as written by Glenn Cunningham for the Sunday Register? Nice to have our farmer's, night school used as being typical of such schools over the state. We can be very proud of our Mr. George Sefrit who instructs this class and did you note that these schools are a regular part of the work of an instructor in vocational agriculture in high school. There's no extra pay. Brotherhood week'is not long past. Remember it was not for just a week but to emphasize a year round program, aimed at achieving a lasting peace through brotherhood. There . is a further purpose to promote justice, understanding and co-operation among Protestants, Catholics and Jews. The long-range objective is to finally eliminate in- tergroup prejudices which disfigure and distort religious, business, social and political relations, and thus to establish a social order in which the religious ideals of brotherhood and justice shall become the standards of human relationships. The first Friday in Lent is observed as "World Day, of .Prayer." It's purpose is to unite the peoples of the world in a spiritual fellowship. •I v - .•, .•>''r ,. "Prayer is so simple ., ,, ' , : - *It is like quietly opening a door And slipping into the very presence of God; ;; -I- There in the stillness to listen to his voice; :" Perhaps to petition Or only to listen; It matters not; . Just to be there '•': In His presence is prayer." ';••, March is the designated month for Red Cross fund raising. You will soon be asked by one of your neighbors who' has volunteered for this, so make your contribution. "Give plenty of What is given to you, listen to pity's call; Don't think the little you give is great, and the much you get is small." We hear and read so much these deys in favor of or against the black lace mesh stockings. I for one like them and wear them. They remind me of the lace stockings we wore when I wes growing up. But these are nicer and finer, those of yesteryear were coarse and the lace pattern more open. When I was growing up, my lovely Aunts Elizabeth, Anna and Barbara wore large hats with beautiful ostrich plumes. I remember how just looking at them in longing and admiration I held my head and actually felt the lovely creation upon it. I longed to hurry and grow up so I could really wear a hat with a plume. And sad to say, they have never been worn since. Another dream that never materialized. But then and all I enjoyed the dream, and who knows, they may come back yet. I can at least tuck a small one on Grandmother Remley's little chiffon bonnet which I treasure and come bobbing toward you. Meanwhile, keep the nice letter* coming. I can't answer all of you personally but 111 do my best to mention you in the column. I do appreciate the ideas and suggestions as some weeks my ideas are slow in originating. Your help makes this such a friendly adventure, Quiet minds cannot be perplexed or frightened, but go on in fortune or misfortune at their own private pace, like a clock during a thunderstorm.
