From where I sit ... ly Joe Marsh
p. A Lesson
We were Kitting on BiU Webster's
porch the other night, chatting over
a glass of beer ? when the talk turns
to forest preservation, soil erosion,
and other things that affect a farm
Judge Cunningham speaks up:
"It's all right to worry about con
serving our natuVal resources," he
says, "but there's a far bigger
problem when it comes to conser
vation ? and that's preserving our
democratic way of life, our sense
of personal freedom, our respect
lor one another's rights."
From where I sit, the Judge
is right. All America's great re
sources, our abundant natural
wealth, are lost the minute we lose
the right to work them as free
people in a free land!
Whenever you see or hear of
an encroachment on our rights ?
whether it's the right to free
speech, or the right to vote as w?
see fit, or the right to enjoy ?
friendly glass of beer in licensed,
law-abiding places . . . watch out!

Thanksgiving was first celebrated by our Pil
grim Fathers because a bountiful harvest made it
possible for them to live in the New World. In much
the same way your family will be thankful if you
provide now for the "new world", in which they will
find themselves should you no longer be able to
provide for them
You can do this with adequate life insurance, care
fully planned to meet your every need. Call or write
your Jefferson Standard representative today ? he
will be glad, at no cost to you, to help you work out
your "Planned Protection" program.

daughter of Marvin Howard, of
the Mulberry section, last month
won third prize at the State
Fair for the curtains she maae
as a part of her room .mpro.c
ment 4-H club project.
But the $2.50 prize doesn't
mean nearly so much to her as
the pleasure she gets from her
room, and the satisfaction of
having completed a project.
It all started when she de
cided she wanted new curtains
and a cover for her dressing
table. Her father and older sist
er became interested, and when
they learned help could be ob
tained lrom the home agents, it
was decided the whole room
could be improved.
Sue has a small room with
one window, so "the sheetrock
walls were painted a light blue,
the ceiling a lighter blue, and
the furniture white, to make
the most , of the light available
An application of boiled linseed
oil gave a pretty finish to the
j pine floor.
To give more room, a three
quarter bed was taken from an
other room, to replace Sue s
double-bed The rose in the
dressing table was repeated in
the small, bedside braided rug.
. giving the room a color scheme
of white, blue, and rose.
"the. total cost of the project
was $986 ? $436 for the mate
rials for the curtains and dress
ing table: $3.52 for paint; and

It's not only wise, but it's downright important to give

care to save that car is an important "must" to see you
through! See your neighborhood Esso Dealer now!
