mrii \NnU Donna Miller Of LuVerne Engaged To Wed ACCORDING TO AN ASSOCIATED PRESS story, even with her girdle on, the average American woman has a broader "seat breadth" - that is, she's broader across the derriers than the average male. This information was among the results of a survey by the U.S. Public Health Service and could scarcely be termed as a big surprise to most people. Nevertheless, I can't help thinking there must be broader and more deep-seated problems on which to spend the taxpayer's money. - o THE SURVEY MUST HAVE BEEN a little sneaky. After all, they had to go behind the backs of 7,000 people. The article said they represented a cross section of the population and I don't blame them one bit. I'd be cross too, if any of those survey takers got so personal with me I - o THE ARTICLE WENT ON TO SAY that the average women is something • like 142 pounds in weight and 5 feet, 3 inches tall. In applying this personally, I find that I am still less in weight than average and considerably over the average in height. Just the same it doesn't eliminate a nagging little notion I've been having lately that I am getting much too fat. - o - FOR THE MAJOR PART OF MY life - that is until I moved south and got into this relaxed living bit, I've been concerned about my weight. But the worry was how to put on a few pounds, not to take them off. It wasn't that I didn't eat, my appetite has always been terrific and I could eat everything just like a goat. But when some problem, big or little came up, I shed ounces and pounds no matter how much I ate. - o - SOME OF MY WEIGHT PROBLEMS ARE now behind me. But the major part of them are right up front in the mid-section where its easy to watch my weight. The gain is gradual. When the scales crept up five pounds, I celebrated, when they got to ten pounds, I rejoiced, when it was fifteen pounds I casually remarked that this Florida life was agreeing with me, but when that little monster in the bathroom said I had gained twenty pounds, I kept mighty quiet. That little dial is still climbing^ and I won't say just how much I've gained, but it amounts to a ridiculous figure. - o - THE /THING THAT REALLY Jolted me was one of my nursery school .'acquaintances. She's a charming blonde and we had such fun together. One day with devastating frankness she said, "You are sure a chubby lady. But you are very nice, anyway!" That did ft. If a four year old thinks I'm fat, it is high time to do something about it. - o BACK COMES MY LURID PAST to haunt me. I think of hen parties where all the gals discussed the latest diets while I sat there chomping on the mixed nuts. When they would moan and groan about what the pecan pie was doing to their diets, I'd smugly accept a generous helping of whipped cream. I thought, ? and I didn't mind saying so, that if the time ever came when I; had to lose weight, I could do so easily. After all, I'm very fond of cottage cheese! It's a wonder somebody didn't strangle me. - o FIRST IN MY PROGRAM to reform came some stretching and bending exercises. These not only made me stiff and sore they also gave me a tremendous appetite. When I sat down at the table I found that although I'm still fond of cottage cheese, I'm still even fonder of macaroni and cheese. Those desserts that I'd always said I could take or leave alone suddenly became irresistible and I'm almost ready to sell my soul for a hot fudge sundae with marshmallow, chopped nuts and whipped cream. - o I STRONGLY SUSPECT THAT those automatic dryers at the laundromat have been shrinking my clothes. Why else would I have so much trouble zipping up my dresses? I suspect that sizing has changed during the three years I didn't buy any clothes, because when I finally went shopping the other day the saleslady said, "Ma'm, I would suggest you look on the size 16 rackl I went so far as to buy myself a girdle! Unless I start dropping pounds very soon, I'm even going to wear it! - o DURING THE WEEK OF July 4, through 10, people having birthdays include David Cowan, Cindy Hardy, G. Russell Cook, Chuckle O'Connor, Clayton Percival, Marlene Dutton, Melvin Bay, Chuck Hinken, Mrs. B. A. Frankl, Lucille Everds, Betty Granzow, Jim Schutter, Joan Diamond, Judy Ann Knoll, Beatrice Miller, C. G.

"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment and he who fears is not perfected in love." H —/ John 4:18 We do not love God and obey God's commandments because we fear punishment. We are not constantly reminded that a good Christian life holds forth the promise of salvation while a life of sin and error determine eternal damnation. Instead, we strive to please God by doing good, by being good because we know that the way of God is perfect. We shall never attain perfection in this life, but we can, through love, seek the promise of salvation. Our motive is not fear, but faith.
