THE HOME The Home is gradually changing in its significance. An open fire was the center of the first home. Around its warmth on cold nights gathered the family group securely protected from world blasts. Here beneath an over hanging rock, or within a sheltering cave the family found safety, comfort and companionship. For these reasons the people of long ago came to look upon the fireplace as a sacred spot. It was here that the head of the family, the father and his helpmate gathered their chil dren around them and talked to them of the lives they wanted their chil dren to live, of the noble characters and ideals which had long been cher ished through the line of ancestry. They spoke in glowing terms of the fact that not one among that line had betrayed the family name, but remained loyal to the trust. The chil dren must walk in the same path and be proud to say: I am a Brown. Home life meant then, and it should mean today, the center and heart of life, the place where little lives were shaped and moulded while they were yet ten der and easily yielded to nobler char acter formation. The word “dwelling place” never had the same meaning as the word “home.” A person may dwell in a palace and be a stranger there, or he may live in a hut and be at home. Marble floors and gilded walls will never make home. The home feeling depends on whether peace and affection and train ing are found within the dwelling place. The focus is the home fire, whether it blazes upon the heartstone or quietly within the human heart. The home circle, the fireside training, and in structions, the zealous interest of par ents in the cultural background of their children is passing. The home fires are becoming dying embers. The home has become a dwelling place. ARIZONA GLEAM QUOTATION CONTEST Third Week 1. The man that will steal for you will steal from you if he gets a chance. 2.

You can be good sitting in a chair, but who cares. The race isn‘’t interested in what you know, how many college degrees you hold, how good you are or have been, but in what you can do. Are you one of those kind with a sign out, “I have the goods, but don’t deliver?” Suppose we take up a few defini tions. The modern definition of a friend is one who will come and tell you all the gossip that’s being said about you, and tell you, and tell you the name and initials of the per son who said it, and when and under what conditions it was said. A social bore is a person who talks about him self all the time, won’t let you talk about yourself and always knows the news before you do. A society butterfly is a person who knows nothing, says nothing, does nothing. He’ll put a ten dollar hat on his ten cent head and thrust him self on society. A social climber is a person who seeks introductions to the first people of the city and starts his ascent, but where in the name of common non sense is he climbing to? Culture and merit are keynotes to social success. A social critic is a person who looks out his window and observes that his neighbor’s washing is dirty this week, when the truth of the matter is that his window glass has not been washed since the last rain and the smeared pane gives him a blurred vision. MYSELF By Lawrence A. McHenry If I was an artist, the picture of life I would draw, From birth to the age of six months old, It would be to my mother as precious as gold. From the cradle through education, romance marriage and to fame, I would do my best to play my part in the game. Then to my narrow home to rest. Life in my body would be none, But in my name which would live for ever for the great things I had done. N—Say, fellow, I don’t see any use in marrying that girl because you won’t take care of her. J —That’s the trick. I am tired of taking care of myself.
