IT ISN'T YOUR TOWN IT'S YOU If you want to live in the kind of town Like the kind of town you like, You needn't slip your clothes in a grip And start on a long, long hike. You'll only find what you left be hind For there's nothing that's real ly new; It's a knock at yourself when you knock your town, It isn't your town it'u you!!! Real towns are not made by men afraid Lest somebody else gets ahead; When everyone works and nobody shirks, You can raise a town from the dead. And if, while you make your per sonal stake," Your neighbor will make one, too; Your town will be what you want to see. It isn't your town it's YOU. Anon.

Missionary to Germany Otto Fetting, of Port Huron, has been asked by the joint coun cil of the presidency, the Twelve and the Bishop of the church of the Latter Day Saints, now in session in Independence, Mo., to go to Germany as a missionary.

If Mr. Fetting de termines to accept the charge he will become virtually head of all such work in Germany. He has not yet decided as to what decision he will make. Complying with the desire of the council, would mean that Mr. Fetting would have to live in Germany at least five years.
