DAIRY® FRESH fc^DAILY For that real get-up-and-go feeling,——- rely on the wholesome energy pro- vided by fresh milk. Consolidated Co-op Creameries Whittemore - Lone Rock - Swea City "For God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. " — Proverbs 3:34 We live in an age when a small portion of the younger g eneration is engaged in re- elllon and attempted with- 1*^ drawal from the society in which they live. The inability to accept authority, unwillingness to accept the demands of conformity, these are not a sign of strength, but an evidence of weakness and diffidence. It is a false pride these youngsters claim. In his first epistle, Peter reminds us that we are all children of God — elders and youngsters alike. "Feed the hock, and "do what is right, willingly", he urges the elders. Heed your elders, he suggests to the younger generation. "All of you be subject to one another ..." We are all members of the one flock. Each of us has an obligation to God and to our fellow man that cannot be fulfilled by sticking our head in the sand and saying we are too proud to do anything else.

Gas cools like nothing else, and it cools your entire home so that every room and every corner is one hundred per cent livable. A silent, natural gas cooling system is economical, too. And it has no moving parts to break down or wear out. So, don't pack up your family and move :o one room for the summer. Cool your entire home the modern way—with efficient, dependable, cool, cool, natural gas. See your local gas company or gas appliance dealer for the names of people who sell and service gas air conditioning equipment. Gas makes the big difference. ASK FOR A FREE ESTIMATE AT .
