H "INK In my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN Htl-t-t-it-l Mi t i4*M.*.J4-H H H I HI) H 4H H M 1 H j H | ft World good wilt day, originally known as "Peace Day," is observed annually w\ May 18. this date marked the opening in 1899 of the first Hague Peace Conference. It has, in recent years, received comparatively little attention. I visited the Peace Palace in the Hague an Sept, 5, 1950 when I went to Europe at a delegate from Iowa Farm Bureau Women to the Associated Countrywomen of the world conference held that year in Copenhagen. We learned that the peace -palace was started by the tizar of Russia in 1899 and was finished/in 1913 by gifts from many countries. Carneeie donated one and a half million dollars to help build it. There is a huge bust of black Russian marble, with a fan light and iron grill doorway. The sun shines through Belgian glass. On one of the vast stairways stands a statue of Christ of the Andes. There is a new statue of Justice, no sword or scales in hands, no blind eyes, rather a statue of youth with open eyes and hands outstretched. This statlie was given by the United States to the Peace Palace. Here the International Court of Justice holds ilts meetings. Words on the floor in latin, say, "Sun of Justice Shine on us." And still we seek peace and why I ask can we not achieve it? No peace will ever be successful if we merely sign peace treaties. Peace must be an everyday living reality. It must be made of the stuff df brotherhood, of humbleness, of trust in God, of walking in one another's shoes. No bands, no trumpets, simply unexciting everyday living. Milton S. Eisenhower' once said, "Genuine peace is not a negative thing. Tt is not merely the absence' of open warfare. Rather it is a positive program .having four component parts, no one of .which can be ignored. The components are economic cooperation, political cooperation, controlled power to enforce, and genuine understanding among peples." To me the latter is most important. We can have the other components, sign all the treaties we want but to carry them out we must have genuine understanding among peoples. And where do we start? Right here and now in our homes, our communities, developing the feel of brotherhood and understanding of each other. Then our attitude will spread out into our state and nation and our world. But first we must have the firm foundation right here in our everyday living. Citizenship day known alternately as "l-Am-An-American Day, is designed for the* third Sunday, in May by a Congressional resolution passed in 1940. the .original act specifies the day as a public occasion for the recognition of those persons who have come of age, or become naturalized citizens during the preceding twelve months. We in Kossuth can be proud of our two new citizens, Mrs. Inge Str&yer and Mrs. Helena (Alfred) Schultz. It has been said that citizenship is not. a passport giving the right to shelter under the umbrella of the state, rather it is a share certificate in going enterprise, the biggest and best of all enterprises. There are 3 R's of citizenship, rights, respect and responsibilities. A group of second grade students once wrote a letter to General Dwight Eisenhower, asking 'how they could be better citizens. His answer: "A full and complete letter on how to become bettar citizens would, require many hours of preparation and composition. I can only make one brief suggestion, tackle every task, every, day as If, it were the most important of your life." ' W6rTd"Trade Week comes ih" here the latter part of May and simply reiterates what we have, been saying about peace through understanding and brotherhood. We are citizens of a nation that can no longer live apart from the rest of the world and the benefits of trade need no armies. She of the open soul and open door, • With room about her hearth for all mankind. • - — James Russell Lowell, I am home from school today and while I must wash more of the soot smoked dishes and do a few more curtains, I mean to take time out to discover some of the magic of spring. Trees and bushes are leafing out, the lilac buds are showing color and many of the plants (thought were winter killed are peeking through the moist earth; Looking out of the window this morning I saw my friendly rabbit, he to whom I have given a healthy diet of tulip salad this spring. He just wiggled his ears and wrinkled his nose at me in a very nonchalant manner. . I'll do my work first artd then I'll go out of doors to soak up some of the beauty of God's world and dream as my imagination takes wing to far off lands. And no matter where I may journey in dream, no matter:what worries the day may bring, growing things will soothe the irritations and after the long day, as darkness comes down around me I'll know it covers only safe, well loved and familiar things. Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting, a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing. —Emerson.
