Take My Word for It
By Frank Colby
Julius Caesar, in 46 B. C„ revised
the calendar, and made January
the first month of the year. It was
not until the 17th century, however,
that Scotland and England made
January 1 the first day of the New
Year. Our celebration of this day
is, therefore, a modem custom.

rice will bring good luck during the
coming year, and rice cakes are
used as offerings in Ceylon.
In America, in spite of the ela
orate banquets, dinners and feasts,
some strange traditions still are very
much alive. In the South good luck
is believed to follow all persons who
eat black-eyed peas on New Year’s
day. And strange as it may seem,
this custom, with the help of a bit
of commercial boosting is fast
growing in popularity throughout

Naggi ng backache, loss of pep and energy,
headaches and dizziness may be due to slow
