Sharon was wondering what type
costume to wear while singing
“Around the World.” Mamma
suggested an Air Hostess uniform
and that’s when another country
was heard from ... Wyn walked
around little sister in a specu-
lative way. “Say,” he opined,
“how about dressing up like the
big fat world, that would be ap-
propriate !” When this costume
was objected to, he further sug-
gested, “You could be an air-
plane, that’s romantic enough.”
Oh, for the practical mind of a

This writer enjoyed the public
forum held at the school house
Monday night. We feel that per-
sons attending this meeting had
the interest and love for their
community that every man should
have . ,. . anyone having a griev-
ance or failing to understand city
business should have been on
hand . . . the Mayor’s resume
of finances was specific and re-
vealing, and Joe Daniel’s steer-

People from time to time shake
their heads and say, “Slow down
or you’ll have a nervous break-
down.” Others will say, “My, how
can you be so happy!” Having
had personal experience with
nervous breakdowns leads this
writer to believe they are caused
(1) by inability of one individual
to steer a loved one away from
some weakness, or (2) worry
over circumstances in private
life over which you have no con-
trol, (3) inability to turn prob-
lems over to the Lord.
When a fellow sings loudest,
he may be the most worried . . .
when he blusters most, is the
Very time he is most unsure of
his future ... human beings are
complicated machines, and if one
infinitesimal being must rant and
rave and scream to keep another
from sinking into quick sand,
then there’s just something wrong
with that set-up.
This writer has always had
friends who dearly loved to char-
acter analyze and tell themselves
exactly what sort of person she
is . . . but no matter how var-
ied the analysis . . . about an-
other human being, you can be,
oh, so wrong . . . and don’t we
keep finding that out each day!
