It't Time To Stmrl!
Early Monday morning down in
South Carolina jo Dr. W. P. Few
used to tell us, an old farmer neigh
bor used to "roust" his boys out of
bed calling to them in a voice that
would have starred in a hog-calling
contest: "Get up, up. up?right now.
Here it is Monday, tomorrow Tues
day, next day Wednesday?half the
week gone and no work done yet."
Maybe some of us need a "new year
start" like that for 1941
