AND A LITTLE CHILD"
Quite often adults can learn a great deal from
youngsters. We too often speak of child delinquency
instead of trying Ko understand what h a child's
In recent years we have been amazed at the in
tellect shown by youngsters in this modern space age.
Their knowledge of current developments and their
quick manner in grasping the modern terminology
of this age is startling. Too, their inner thoughts
are often more sensible than those of adults. The
youngsters of today are, in our opinion, much more
advanced in nearly every phase of life than young
sters of yesteryear.
Below is a poem recently written by Marilyn
Chandler, 11-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jo
nas Chandler, of Mars Hill. Marilyn is a Junior Girl
Scout and is working for her Writer's Badge. After
reading her poem and realizing the uplifting lesson
in its words, we are positive that she will earn her
badge. It would do some of us adults well to "copy"
Marilyn. Her poem follows:
The old year has come to an end.
The New Year is ready to begin.
Id the old year I tried to do the best I could ;
I really tried to do only good,i....(. , ,

GOAL HALF REACHED
The goal for the current Red Cross Drive is $3,
000. To date, $1,481.61 has been reported raised.
This is noe-half of the necessary amount to maintain
the many services of Red Cross in our county.
This may seem discouraging to many as the drive
will close at the end of this month but it must be re
membered that this total thus collected and reported
is from Marshall and Mars Hill areas. Other sec
tions, including Hot Springs, are yet to report. In
addition to the three main sections, the watches of
our county are asked to take special offerings for
the next three Sundays.
We believe that our citizens realize full well
what it would mean to lose the Red Cross services
of which the vital blood program is a part. We fur
ther believe that the $3,000 goal will be reached and
surpassed as it was last year,
To achieve this goal, however, it is going to take
the cooperation of many more. We cannot fail to do
our part to maintain our Red Cross services.
We urge you to make a substantial contribu
tion to the current drive if you have not already done
STOP RABIES NOW
We must do everything possible to i iiwipw
spread of rabies in our county. 0
Thus far, our people have responded well to
-the call to have dogs vaccinated. To .dateOtter 4,000
dogs, have been treated. We hatfenwoi know
ing how many dogs there are m our county but it
must be assumed that there are TOWrtfTttore which
have not been treated.
Why get excited? Why be c!noeri?b
Bear in mind that there are now 131 cases of
rabies in nearby Greene County, Tenn. 75 persons
are now undergoing treatment. In adjoining Cocke
County, Tenn., there are 50 cases of rabies.
This is ample proof that we must not fall in
different to the warnings.
Have your doss vaccinated NOW bfore
