THE JCUHKAL NAIL BAG--
I have been thinking (an un
usual thing to do these days) and
the following interesting and
strange facts happened to come to
Since the first Republican
president, a Quaker, was elected,
there has been 13 Republican
presidents up to the time of
Eisenhower's election, an un
lucky number. These presidents
served a total of 56 years, or, if
equally divided between them,
one term and about one third
Only one Republican president
served two full terms. That was
Gen. U. S. Grant. Civil War hero.
Four served less than a term,
Johnson, Garfield, Arthur and
Four served just one term each,
Hayes, Harrison, Taft and Hoov
er. Four served more than one
term but not two full terms, Lin
coln, McKinley, T. Roosevelt and
It is up to Eisenhower, World
War II hero, to break that Re
publican "jinx" and serve two
full terms and no more, thanks.
Ohio certainly fared well. It
furnished six of the whole num
ber of Republican presidents up
to Eisenhower and we almost
have a half interest in the seven
th. B. Harrison, who was born
and raised in Ohio but was elect
ed from Indiana.
Now let us look at the Demo
cratic side of the picture. They
have done a little better (or have
they?) in time of holding office.
There have been four Demo
cratic presidents in this same
period and they have served a
total of 36 years or an average of
nine years each. That would be
two full terms and one year more
Cleveland served eight years,
F. D. Roosevelt served more than
12 years too long.

CARD OF THANKS
I am taking this means of ex
pressing my most sincere thanks
to all those who visited me, sent
cards, letters, flowers and gifts
while I was a patient at St. Fran

You should revamp your
slogan to read "Covers Noble
County and Ohio Like the Sun
shine" why? Well, you
published my letter of Dec. 15 in
your issue of Dec. 25 and the
following is what resulted:
On Jan. 6, I came down with
virus or flu, whichever you wish
to call it, so my wife was the mail
carrier. On Jan. 7, she came home
with a letter from Cleveland. I
have several cousins there so I
naturally thought one of them
had written to me.
But no, it was a letter from
Mrs. Gerald M. Cover, 2588
Ashurst Rd„ Cleveland, 18, Ohio.
She is the daughter of James Van
Fleet, who ran a store in Cald
well. In her letter, she wanted to
know about the Niswangers. I
answered her letter and gave her
all the information I could.
I then received a letter from
Mrs. Elmer Davis, 3039 Roosevelt
Dr., W. Crescent Gardens, Mas
sillon. She is the former Bertha
Blake, daughter of Clay Blake.
In her letter, she corrected me.
I had said in my Journal letter
that Charley MeKee ran the
hardware store. She was right in
saying the hardware man was
Charley Caldwell, son of Fulton
Caldwell. The Caldwells lived in
the large house on the banks of
Duck Creek, near the bridge be
tween Caldwell and Olive.
In your issue of Jen. 29. you
printed a picture of Zeter Hanes.
He and I used to work for the
old B. Z. &C„ (later the O. R. &
W.) at the same time. I remem
ber him well. He no doubt re
members Jim Pollard and Baker,
who were conductors, also Sam
Farley, Charley Sinclair, Homer
Swain. Virg ilerlan, Milt Mc
Commas and others, too num
erous to menton.
Due to the fact that Mrs. Nis
wanger has also decided to have
the flu, I have not answered the
letter from Mrs. Elmer Davis but
I am certainly enjoying the
three bucks I sent you for the
Journal. The memories it brings
back to me is worth the money

Yes, we are on our way?
Where to? What- When? Why?
It's different too! It won't be but
three weeks now until we get
together once again for our
Church and Rural Life Institute.
Perhaps we might even call it as
some counties do, the Town and

question when and what.
Where to? It's Caldwell Meth

year, another church might like
to act as host. Our morning ses

the .church. The afternoon will
be upstairs in the sanctuary and
the youth section this year will
be downstairs again.
Some of you are asking why
should we have an Institute and
really what does it accomplish.

very important decision that

In our constitution, earnest men

of the United States, in order
to form a more perfect union,

this constitution for the United
States of America."
We have caused to be formed
the most important cause in his

need for unity. We cannot live
alone. We must be a society with
a common interest in one an

enlarge the range of one's per

Free individuals must unite
their energies in cooperation to

success that keep urging us on.
