This 'N That
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.
CONGRATULATIONS are
extended to the WRIGHT
BROTHERS . . . both Harry
and Amos ... both young men
