program of Sunday school workers

Hayden was inspired to undertake
the dynamic kernels project by a
sermon in his home church in Sept

of 360 kernels of wheat on a tract

tithing, Hayden set out on a six
year program, giving one tenth of

The first crop was a quart jar
the second crop yielded 70 pounds

^T'HERE were twelve children in
our family and it was necessary
to have a pretty strict rule about
being reasonably quiet in the house
and at the dinner table. My father
repeated so often, “Children are to
be seen and not heard” or “Silence
is golden” that just to think of those
old adages brings back the echo of
his voice. I can’t agree with the
principle of those sayings. Chil
dren who are encouraged to join in
the conversation are likely to have
more self-confidence and to be more
social minded. In some cases, their
very talkativeness may be golden.

but for a while it looked as though
he might be a professional song
writer instead of a lawyer or a
politician. He wrote several songs
which were published and made a
national hit by composing “Will
You Love Me in December As You
Did in May?” None of his other
songs enjoyed the popularity of this
one, however, and Jimmy decided
upon a more conventional career.
He went to work as a clerk for
