tractive living quarters. Most de-
sire their homes and grounds free
of rubbish. Civic-mlndedness re-
sults in building the reputation of
a town. Its neighborhoods are
what give a city its name for
pleasant living. Careless .shiftless
conditions express the sort of folks
who dwell therein. Neat dwellings
point to stronger characters. Lawns,
gardens and flower beds are being
worked on now and the result of
such activity will soon be evident.
Trimming bushes, repairing fences,
painting lawn furniture, is a citizens
tribute to his neighbors.

Uncle Bob hasn't been to spry
lately. To tell off on him just a
little, he was plowing in the gar
den with one of those push plows.
The plow hit a snag. Uncle Bob
lost his Scotch temper; gave a big
shove on the plow ,and sprung a
"Crick" in his back.
April has been a busy month for
Uncle Bob, first; the "Crick" in
his back; then on April 9th came
his eighty second birthday, with
the beautiful hand decorated birth-
day cake, given to him by the wo-
men of the Washburn Club. He let
us take a picture of the cake, but
no one could cut it until the proper
Also in the picture with Uncle
Bob and his lively wife stood a
china cabinet filled with all man-
ner of keepsakes; a plate brought
over from Scotland, shoes from
Turkey, heather from their native
land. Unusual to me were many of
the trinkets; a miners candle hold-

day Uncle Bob made us hold the

He dldnt want folks to go to any
more trouble for him. Anyway, now
it can be told, April 14th, their
60th wedding anniversary. Fifty
joyful yean have pasted Into his*
tory for this hm>py couple. It hat
left them rich, not in gold, but In
love, happiness, faith In humanity,
and a never ending devotion to-
ward each other. . .
Among the keepsakes were some
recommendations from people in
Scotland to us In America. They
are only keepsakes now; for Uncle
Bob's recommendations are writ-
ten in the hearts of his friends
and loved ones. 1 asked several
how far I could go in talking about
Uncle Bob, they all said, "Say any-
thing you can think of and his
neighbors will agree with you . . .
Thanks Uncle Bob, and, thanks to
your lovely wife for the pleasant
visit, and the cookies. I hope we
can visit with you again soon, for
it is of such as you that we are
justly proud to call our forefathers.

Warning that the 1949 polio sea-
son is "just around the corner," the
National Foundation for Infantile
Paralysis today issued a list of pre-
cautionary measures to be observed
by those in charge of children
during the epidemic danger period
which usually runs
from May through
October, reaching its
peak during the hot,
The five easy-to-fol-
low health rules for
1. Avoid crowds and
places where close
contact with other persons is likely.
2. Avoid over-fatigue caused by
too active play or exercise, or ir-
S. Avoid swimming in polluted
water. Use only beaches or public
pools declared safe by local health
4. Avoid sudden chilling. Remove
wet shoes and clothing at once and
keep extra blankets and heavier
clothing handy for sudden weather
5. Observe the golden rule of
personal cleanliness. Keep food
tightly covered and safe from (lies
or other insects. Garbage should Le
tightly covered and, if other dis-
posal facilities are lacking, it
should be buried or burned.
The National Foundation aUo
listed the following symptoms o:
infantile paralysis: headache, nau-
sea or upset stomach, muscle sore
ness or stiffness, and unexplained
fever. Should polio stril;e in you,
family, call a doctor immediately.
Early diagnosis and prompt treat-
ment by qualified medical personnel
often prevent serious crippling, the
National Foundation pointed out.
The organization emph&f iZ'-'d
that fear and anxiety should lie
held to a minimum. A calm, confi-
dent attitude is conducive to health
and recovery. Parents, it said,
should remember that of all those
stricken, 50 per cent or more re-
cover completely, while another
per cent are left with only slight

CUT OUT AND KEEP FOR REFERENCE

of a life after death. Today pro-

Even the atheist wonders about
life after death. Robert W. Ing-
ersoll, the most militant atheist of
the last century, admitted that per-

tality. Kneeling at the grave of his

ness of death, hope does glimpse a
This starving for life is natural,
for we are spiritual, for we are
spiritual beings created by an im-
mortal God. Because of our inmost
nature, we respond to the new life
of spring and constantly seek ever-
lasting life after death. Through-
out the ages, philosophers discuss-
ed eternal life. But it was for
Jesus Christ to promise and de-
monstrate that it Is truth.
Men before Christ had merely
speculated on triumph over death.
He made it a fact. "Because I live,
ye shall live also," He sold his fol-
lowers, and 'He that believeth on
everlasting life." Jesus
Christ alone la the answer to our
craving for Ufe, both in this world
and in eternity. Through Him, the
new life of the springtime Easter
becomes a promise of life eternal.

Riding out of the brush country
before his feet were comfortable in
boots, the cowboy liked the great
grassy vistas of the west. He liked
the endless challenge of riding into
new country with another distant
purple ridge always Inviting like
the unturned leaf of a book before
him. Great distances and solitude;
years of meditation made him a
silent man. His eyes had the far-
away look of a dreamer listening
to soft music. His old spurs are
silent now; he has beheld the I
splendor of eternity's endless hori-

A friend has a favorite story
about the old cowboy whose lack
of sobriety was a community prob-
lem. Near the week-end the rider
said, "Tomorrow is Saturday and
I've got to get drunk tomorrow
night, and I shore dread it." More
truth may be contained in the
statement than is apparent for
the sake of a joke. My experience
with drunkards has been extensive
and I believe most excessive drink-
ers approach the state of intoxi-
cation against their wills. The ex-
ceptions are probably the unfor-
tunate ones who drink to forget,
knowing they will remember more,
and that they will be unable to
escape their troubles.

NEWSMAN IS 'SCOOPED'
A rival newspaper scooped Pho-
tographer Kirk Braun of the Port-
ljjnd Oregonian when he was sent
to take a picture of the first man
to sign up at draft registration.
He was readying his equipment at
the head of the line when Mrs.
Betty Speer, registerar, said. "How
old are you?"
"Who, me?" asked Braum.
He became the first man to sign
up. Braum, an Air Force veteran,
is 25. A photograph from a rival
paper took his picture.
PLAN 'FLYING MILK CANS'
The British Ministry of Food is
planning to use "flying milk cans"
to. bring daily milk supplies to in-
dustrial towns of Northwest Eng-
land and from Northern Ireland.
The flying milk can service of 15
planes will operate this month and
In October, when there is a season-
al milk shortage in England. An
estimated 50,000 gallons a day will
be flown from Belfast to Liverpool
AROUND THE HQUSE:
Put a small hand brush, bristle
side up, in soap dish. Keep soap on
top of the brush and when you
need to use the brush it will be
full of soap. . . Save soap slivers
and put them in a dish of water
by the sink and use on greasy
pots and pans. . . Stick a piece of
adhesive tape on the wall before
putting In tacks to hold pictures.
This help« prevent the tack from
cracking the plaster. . . Build cup-
boards or sliding racks into wasted
space under. stairs. This makes a
convenient place to keep bridge
tables, folding chairs and games.

We also suggest the use of Mixed
