Chureh Sopiety Will Meet— There will be a regular meeting of the Congregational church Association Thursday at the church. A luncheon will be served at one o'clock and the business meeting will begin at two-thirty. From where I sit . ... oe Marsh IT'S real puzzlin' when you stop to think about it... I mean the way the human race has worked out a whole set of cut- an'-dried alibis for its misdeeds and shortcomings. * » * Some of them's harmless alibis —like the office boy's grandmother who always passes away just before the big baseball game. Here's some others. "My alarm clock didn't go off." "I left my money in my other suit"—"I was eettin' up with a sick friend." * * * And then the one about the two beers. Now that one is downright exasperatin*. Because there's not a shred of truth in it. Every once in a while I read in the papers about some ornery cuss, who never did know the meanin' of moderation, gettin' himself into trouble— —and then proteatin' that all he bad to drink was "a couple of beers." He knows it isn't true. He's just that because he known that "a couple of beers" 1 sounds moderate and sensible-likc— and it is. Personally, I don't ever remember seein' a couple of glasses of good beer, enjoyed among friends, hurt any normal, sensible person. If you won't get in trouble without beer, you aren't going to get in trouble with it. Matter of fact, it's been my observation right along that a friendly glass of beer in pleasant sociability leads to just the opposite of trouble. It goes along, seems to me, with good companionship, and moderation, and tolerance for the other fellow. Tes, sir, from where I sit, it looks like the fellow that goes and gets himself in trouble, and then blames it all on a "couple of beers" isn't really foolin' anybody. But he is bein* mighty mean and unfair to the people that enjoy the right to a sensible moderate drink like beer—yes, includin' "a couple of beers." Keeping Prices Down I am glad the brakes were put on advancing prices. Mr. Henderson did the right thing at the right time. But remember ceiling price is only maximum price to be charged. We can sell as far below ceiling as we wish. Ceiling price is a direct hit at inflation and selling below ceiling is taking another shot at the same object. At Neville's you will find prices the same as they were in March. Never higher, but many many things selling below the maximum March prices. We are on an all-out basis to win the war. War is an invention of the devil. Decency and democracy must win. I know we will win but we must all pull together and help. I have faith in our president and our army. I believe in working not weeping, in boosting not knocking. I love the shoe business and believe in the shoes I sell and the low pricea I sell them at. I believe In low prices and quick sales. The little store up town makes a place where I can go meet my customers and enjoy their company. .So in the golden sunset of life I am happy. I would much rather wear out than rust out. I still love a good horse race, always take a second look at a pretty girl and just before dinner a littfle drink doea not go bad.
