Ht i rt 1 H«H"H H-l H in my VEINS" §y MARIAN INMAN f-H-l-HM 1 1 Mil m 1 HIM | i rm..H-Hi'H"H I MM t-H'H-t Today In our high schbol llhrary. two voting girls a«ked me to help them find some research material for an essnv ihev planned to write. "\Vhat t. A Tecnaset* Owe to America." What wbtltd you have referred them to? How would you have helwd tnehi? We found some articles in current magazines with articles on challenges to teenagers. We discussed their resnonsi- buities toward America in the light of learning to be good citizens while they are on the threshhold of adult cUizenshin. We discussed their responsibilities toward good moral living, responsibilities toward their home, school, youth groups and work they do for themselves and others. They talked and smiled and nodded and wrote copious notes and gathered up their references and left for their study room. I will be interested t«i read their article. Did I help them? I am sure they will help themselves and we will be proud of their thoughts. , A few evenings ago. Emily McGuiro and T visited with Mrs. Charldtte Habeger. Wo found her chfeerful and busy, taking up the pattern of her life where her husband and she left off together and seemingly determined to continue the tapestry pattern as beautiful as ever. Golden threads of happy memories woven in with colors of everyday living solashed with purples and rose of friendship and her wonderful children. Charlotte will be proud tp show her banner when she is called to give an account of her, stewardship. Each day Will help hei* pats,through these first lonely hours, help her say,"But this will pasY, and where the sad winds sang, buds* will'green the hill* of some tomorrow." Charlotte Habeger is so like and looks so like a friend of my youth, June Charlotte, that I call her that without thinking. As I travel about and_sce. so many look alikes here and there I cannot"help"butT think thatthe good Lord has a number of molds alike and casts them here and there so that many times we think we see a friend and say hello and it is another person who looks like our friend. I am still accumulating materials for the egg artistry, I long to begin but must put it off until we have finished the •eel cleaning and school is out. Then do come and We'll have fun together. ., A very special piece of this week's mail is an invitation froth.th4 GreenWood 4-H girls to their annual Mother's tea at which they entertain their mothers and former leaders of the club. I look 7 forward to this and always come home refreshed and inspired to do better. These girls give one a new sense of values. Discussing values reminds me of this bit of philosophy I read the ether,day. A bar of iron costs $5. Made into horseshoes $12. Made into needles it's Worth $3,500. Made into . balance springs for watches its value is $300,000. Your own value is determined also by what' you are able to make of yourself. It matters not whether the wind blows north or south or east or west No wind serves the many who has no port of destinationf^Our young 4-Hers have a* port of destination. A port of service in which they pledge their heads, their hearts, VV« can tike « lesson from their courage, deir «uM«tk urtdftufifidneti. They do not lit the" whol« b*wih»rtnt picture of challenges discourage them; they take ante tHf«f at a time. They remind us never to be discouraged but td remember that at one time all of our United States was a forest and one man and one axe chopped one tree at t tlmiV Certain primitives bind their skulls with strips of hide so that their heads grow "on a bias." Wh'ert these wrappings" We removed, the first flow of blood is extremely painful. In our society, many people bind not their heads, but their minds, and as a result of this tourniquet on their iffifi gtnation, their thinking is biased and their opinion hidebound, To remove the wrappings and permit a flow of new ideas is painful here too, and these narrow-minded people ere careful to avoid it. Does your mind have a tourniquet? Be sure you build high but be sure you build strohg for we must be aware of the upper winds. This takes courage and patience. Remember Burket's poem patience. "How many rocks pour into swamps, before one stone is found above the rnur ; key waters, yet each helped to build firm ground.
