St. Luke 6:13. PUT OR PIT By Ruth Taylor “Put” or “Pit”—which do you do? The other day I was typing, in a hurry as usual, anc when I read over what I had written, there it was—“pit’ instead of *'put.” Unfortunately that is what impatient people are toe orien doing. I hey pit their energies against suspected oppo sition, wasting precious time and strength, rather than pu their energies to work to achieve their desired ends. They strive so hard in fighting off attacks, both real and imagin ary7, that they7 never drive ahead. I do not mean that we should follow the line of leas* resistance, that we should compromise or accept as perfect half-measures. No indeed! Compromises usually leave botl sides discontented and please no one. We should struggle hard to establish the things in which we believe, but we should do it positively by working, rather than negatively by fighting. We should put all our efforts into constructive work into labor which will build up upon a firm basis and wt should not spend our strength by pitting it against force: that are too often created out of our own minds or by7 ou: own prejudices. Half the troubles we dread never happen Half the opposition we deplore exists only' in our own think ing. “Put” is constructive—it is motion forward. “Pit” i: negative—it is placing against. “Put” it productive—it i: action ahead. “Pit” is static—t is only7 opposition. Wha' we need is a lot more putting forth and a lot less pitting against. Put it together—and put it across! Put the facts, not the fancies, together, fitting them ir logically and harmoniously, not just letting them jut ou into thin air. Put your energies to constructive use, working tint l-\ -f r\l 1 rvttT 1 n i 4 -r ▼ »-> r v%/-l T~\ w ' 4- -v* -1-4- « strength in senseless competition, hoping to beat someone else, trying to get things for your own group and not for al the people. Put it together and put it across. Don’t waste time argu ing but see through whatever you start to do. Argument i: good when the plans are under consideration and we have yet to determine what we shall do—but when the plans are laid, we should not pit ourselves against the will of the ma jorit}’. We should wTork together to put it across. Put or pit—which do you do? SUCCESS TO ALEXANDER SCHOOL Southern Wholesale Company BUY WAR BOWS AW STAMPS BROOKHAVEN, MISS.

From The State Health Officer Most physicians list false mod esty as a powerful ally of disease. Because they are loathe to submit to a thorough examination of the body by a physician, many men and women allow certain conditions •to go untreated in the hope that the trouble will clear up spontan- 1 eously. Thus medical science, so ; able to help in the early stages of : disease, stands helplessly by while certain ailments are given a chance to do their worst by the victim.
