Colored Community News WINIFRED SANDS JOHNSON. Editor 2-2136 National Golden Rule Week Is A Time For Remembering This if National Golden Rule Week. “Golden Rule” is a term applied to the principle or conduct twice enumerated in the New Test* ament The former given in Mat thews 7:2, is that generally current: 'Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law of the prophets” (see also Luke 6:31). This admonition is widely accepted as a fundamental requirement of morality, especial ly from the point of view of prac tical affairs. When we look around and see the troubled world in which we are living, we are prone to feel that we woyld hate to be treated by others as they treat themselves. There is so much trouble and anx iety in the world. We dare not, however, take a pes simistic attitude. There is still a silver lining behind every dark cloud. Our own leader, President Ei senhower sets a wonderful exam ple. No one is more troubled than he, yet he can find a bright aid. It is interesting to hear his Wash ington pastor, Rev. Dr. Edward L R. Elson of the National Pres byterian Church over “Sounding Board," a Mutual affiliation pro gram speak of the celebrities in his church and just how they are not ashamed to pray. He made special note of President Eisenhow er’s inaugural prayer, his church membership, his opening of Cabi net meetings with prayer, his ha bit of private prayer and just how his attitude has invested religion with true masculinity. If we would but take our Pre sident and other noteworthy per sonalities as examples and turn back to religion then the' “Golden Rule” will have a true meaning. With good Christian lives as ex amples we could well afford to say: “Therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ys even so to them.” Gray Ladies Give Party For Aged A Christmas party given by the Gray Ladies Corps for the colored old folks was held last Friday, December I, at the Colored Old Folks Home.

' At the request of the Herald a trust fund was set up for Cora Lee without charge, by the First National Bank of Miami; and a three-man board appointed as a disbursing committee.

Let’s Observe Safe-Driving Day • Wednesday, December 15, has been selected as SD (Safe Driv ing) Day. While jt is true that every day of the year should be ob served as SD Day, special emphasis has been placed on this day. Thousands of needless deaths occur each year in traffic accidents. Approximately 19 traffic deaths occurred in this county alone in the past year. A great number, if not the majority of them, involved our immediate group. Each time an accident occurs on December 15, our fire bell will ring. Let’s keep that bell quiet! Drivers are not theonly ones at fault in traffic accidents. Pedes trians too are greatly at fault. Following are some rules for “Safe Walking.” 1. Carry or wear something white at night to help drivers see you. 2. Cross only at crosswalks. Keep to the right in the crosswalk. 3. Before crossing look both ways. Be sure the way is dear before you cross. 4. Cross only on proper signal. 5. Watch for turning cars. 6. Never go into the roadway from between parked cars. 7. Where there is no sidewalk, and it is necessary to walk in the roadway, walk on the left side, facing traffic. .... , *• cialist who performed the opera-- tion hadn’t donated his services. There now is $9,493.63. Of that, $493.63 is in cash; $6,- 000 in United States bonds, and $3,000 in treasury notes. It will be used for Cora Lee’s schooling, training, medical expen ses and other needs. In event of her death, any un spent funds in the trust fund would be used for the benefit o t other persons similarly afflicted, or giv en to the Lighthouse for the Blind, to this fund. What was done for Cora Lee is an example of what Americans do to help the needy both at home and abroad. Regardless of race, color or creed, Americans come to the aid of the needy —a good practice of the “Golden Rule.” JOIN OUR MERCHANDISE CLUB Shoes Fabrics SANDS' OK Shoe Shop - Fabric Center 706 DUVAL STREET NAM'S BAR MANI PEREZ.

SEA. SECRETS Q. While I was vacationing In Canada on the Atlantic Coast, I watched some men gathering sea weed. They told me that they reg ularly sold this sea weed.

There are many sea weeds which find utility in our daily lives here and abroad. Irish moss, a multi-use sea weed found in abundance on parts of thsf Can adian Atlantic Coast, is used in tiw preparation of some foods, and acts as a “stabilizer.” It is used in ice cream to prevent the formation of large tee crystals during freezing, thus producing the smooth mixture of creamy con sistency. It is used as a jellying agent in mjlk puddings, and as a suspending agent in such drinks as chocolate milk. It is also used in making doughnuts, cake kings, and marshmallows.

The American crocodile, Cvneedyhm acwtvs, is sometimes seen in the salt and brackish wat ers along the south east coast of Florida. Dr. J. C. Moore, Biologist for the Everglades National Park, has made a list of a number of recent reports of specimens seen in Florida Bay between foe Flor ida Keys and foe mainland. The crocodile is normally very timid and difficult to approach, though it may be much more aggressive than foe alligator if cornered. Cap tive specimens usually retain their viciouseness, but no record is avail able of an attack by one of these crocodiles on a parson. The crocodile may be distin guished from foe alligator by its long pointed, rather foan paddle shaped snout and by the fact that it is somewhat lighter in col or.
