By Sarah M. Harvey THOUGHT FOR TODAY: “You can make more friends in a week by getting your self genuinely interested in other people than you can in a year by trying to get other people interested in you.” PREPARATIONS FOR First Class Citizenship. . . In our efforts to build for ourselves and those who come after us, a fuller and better life ... it would be well that we follow the advise of John Harsen Rhodes when he said, “Do more than exist—LIVE; Do more than touch—FEEL; Do more than look—OBSERVE; Do more than hear—LISTEN; Do more than listen — UN DERSTAND; Do more than think — PONDER: Do more tnan taiK—say suiviuthiinu 1 .... and whatever else you do. . . REGISTER TO BE COME A QUALIFIED VOT ER. . . A Voteless People will ever be a Hopeless People. SUNDAY PAST, FATHER Reigned As King for a Day ... and as we looked around us and saw the honors being be stowed on FATHER. we were happy in the realization that n one could be more deservant of such honors than many of the fathers whom we knew. . . FATHER’S DAY in Jackson was once when actions spoke volumes; wdien a gift from his son, daughter, or his wife, told Dad, wordlessly, the things that were in their hearts. . . And FATHER NEEDS to be told, as much, or even more than Mother does on Mother’s Day. . . Father needs to know that his children appreciate the sacrifices he’s made for them; the hours he’s worked that they might play; the strength he’s allowed them to lean on in time of trouble and the guidance offered out of his experiences ... We wfere happily privileged to let our dad, “Brother Mack” know in a small way what he means to us. THE FAMILY OF the Late Mrs. Bessie White has our deep and profound sympathy in her death and we say to ujiuiv/ugxi icaiJ£jL there is little we can say or do to make this sorrow any the less, we pray that time, the eraser of all our ills, will soon cause this grief to pass and leave in its place, the beautiful memory of the Mo ther that was Mrs. Bessie White. . . It was our privilege to know this very fine woman for many years, through her daughter CORA, when we all were attending Smith Robert son and Lanier.
