THIS 'N' THAT \ By Sarah M. Harvey THOUGHT FOR TODAY: “True culture does not come from without, but from deep with in oneself. It is no shining var nish to be applied at will, but an integral part of the perso nality. . . The Science of Culture— PREPARATIONS FOR FIRST CLASS CITIZENSHIP ... An important step in our preparations for FIRST CLASS CITIZENSHIP is to prove false the often made statement that all Negroes have a ‘cultural lag’ . . . and to do this, perhaps we should dwell for a time on the real meaning <r CULTURE. . . . Somewhere we have read that— “Culture is the fullest possible growth of the fin est human qualities. . . Culture begins with the desire to be cul tured . . . The first, the most im portant, is a desire for growth and self-development, for know ledge and understanding—a desire to live the richest and fullest life possible. . . Culture lies in what one actuall yis—not what one appears to be, or what one’s an cestors were. . . Those who are truly cultured—by breeding, by education, by environment, by natural instincts—are truly sim ple. . . They have no use for cheapness, vulgarity, display, and the exaggaration that goes with such thines . . . Those who are truly cultured do not give them selves airs of superior wisdom, do not try to impress the world with the fact that they are better than their neighbors—for, after all, no one is less cultured than the snob. . . Those who are truly cultured do not ape the habits and dress of others. Those who are truly cultured show respect fo rthe customs, habits, and ways of people who are strange to them . . . They do not scoff at the things they do not understand . . . They are above all, TOL ERANT . . In our Preparations or First Class Citizenship, let us ever remember that, ‘Merit and culture will make a way for us anywhere an d everywhere . . . Knowledge will introduce us and good breeding, or culture, which is the same, will endear us to the best company. . . CAST THY BREAD UPON WATERS, for thee shall find it after many days. . . August, three years ago, our dear friend and neighbor, CARRIE WILLIAMS SHEPHERD went on to her re ward in the great beyond . . . Dur ing her life time, to our know ledge, this friend “cast much bread on waters" ... in acts of kindness, in charitable deeds, in providing clothes, food, medical aid, educational opportunities for ’ a number of young people. . . Be ing closely associated with her, we know that at times she felt that hers was a thankless job . . . that what she did was not prop erly appreciated ; . . but, on Sun day last, as we stopped for a coke in SHEPHERDS KITCHEN ETTE, we had a feeling that out there somewhere, friend Carrie must be happy in the knowledge that her beloved husband is now benefiting (maybe in a small way) but benefiting, never-the-less, from “bread cast upon waters” years ago. . . Sunday, on the job, helping Mr. Shepherd to conduct his business in the efficient man ner that characterized his late I wife, were three of the people for whom Mrs. Shepherd cared most and possibly did most . . . ‘Little Bit’, Allyne (Skeets) Lock hart and little Willie B. Cameron. . . . Yes. it was good to see Little Bit hold down the kitchen, just as she did years while Mrs. S. was living and as she has done | since her death. . . to see Skeets come in from church and find ing “D. D.” without sufficient help, go right to work in the I kitchen, behind the counter or wherever she was needed . . . and to see little Willie B. install ed as dishwasher, waiter and reg : ular ‘handy man’ at Shepherd’s Kitchenette, can really be appre ciated by friends of the late CARRIE WILLIAMS SHEPHERD. OUR PROFOUND SYMPATHY IS extended to Dr. and Mrs. C. B. ! Christian in the death of Mrs. Christian’s mother, Mrs. BERTHA HOWARD, who died this past week after a lingering illness. . . :At the time of her death, Mrs. Howard was making her home with her duaghter on E. Cohea Street. . . A devout Baptist, fu neral services were held Friday August 26. at Pearlie Grove Bap tist Church, the Rev. Sorrell of ficiating. ... HENRY YOUNG, JUNIOR, IN CITY ; . . perhaps one of the finest specimen of young man hood we have seen in many a day, is this son of friends, ESTELLE G. and HENRY H. YOUNG , . .tall, tan and terrifi cally handsome. . . ‘Little’ Henry is home to attend Jackson College and complete his college educa tion that was interrupted some three or four years ago when he went into the armed services. . . He’s recently back in this section after a vacation in Washington, D. C., with his aunt, Mrs. MOL LYE Y. SIMS, and uncle, GEOR GE YOUNG. . . . Looking at this handsome ‘big’ fellow, who has spent sometime in the Far East, makes her realize how ‘time flies’ . . . seems only yesterday when his mom was referring to him as ‘Doll Baby’ ... We wish for Mr. H. H. Young Jr., much success during the coming school year. . . .
