Jama Alvays Managed - Her Secret
By: MRS. II. JOINER
(As Told To Me By A Friend)
When I was a little lad of 12
year, and the oldest of three chil
dren, my father died. While he had
never made but very little money,
it had been a living. Young as I
a I understood the helpless feel-
; itg that Mama must have had as
ant talked to her only brother after
the funeral, and he was asking her
ii he could help, and the replied,
No, we'll find a way, so go on and
try to make a living for your crowd,
for somehow, I'll manage." After
that, those words, 'I'll manage' took
- on great meaning, for no matter
how impossible things seemed,
Mama always meant what she said
When she said, "I'll manage."
I Mama took the little money that
she had hoarded and set up a little
bakery shop In our kitchen. She
laid it was the only thing she could
do and still be at home to take care
of us. When Christmas arrived soon
afterward, she told me that while
I would understand why she could
"nt buy any gifts, that the little
ones would be awfully hurt to
find empty stockings. I was still kid
enough to cry when she tried to
prepare me, but when she put her
.thin arms around me and said,
fSon, dry those tears, for I shall
nake enough to fill all the stock
ngs and yours too, you just wait
fend1 see, for somehow I'll manage.'
After this, when she promised that
She'd manage, I never doubted
f We made a bare living with the
kitchen bakery, and Mama was
trying to think of something more
profitable to try. While she had
always sewed from necessity, she
badn t discovered any extra talent
But when one of my little sisters
tame home and said that she simp
ly must have a new dress for Sun-
day School, as one of the children
had called her old one "tacky",
then Mama, because she was ang
rier than I had ever seen her, in
having her little daughter made
fun of, she went to work with a
will. Taking an old faded silk bed
ipread, she first dyed it a lovely
sky blue, and sat up most of the
night making the new dress. When
It was finished, it was to our
Children's innocent eyes "the love
liest dress in the world." Soon af
terwards, several mothers came to
her to ask her to help in designing
clothes for their girls, and they
were so well pleased with the dress
ts that Mama planned, that they
paid her generously. So by baking
all day and sewing half the night,
$ About this time Mama's only
later died and left an alcoholic
husband and two little helpless
children. Naturally, she went at
once and carried the children home
with her, and told their drunken
father to send what he could If,
and when, he ever sobered up.
When he was killed in a drunken
brawl soon afterward,, Mama be
gan calling them her children and
loved them along with us.
. During my last year In high
school; I had given up the thought
of entering college. But Mama had
a different idea. She promptly sent
for registration blanks and I saw
that she meant business. When ask
ed how she would be able to get
that much money, she gave me a'
great surprise. She explained that
one of the well known Fashion
Magazines had been accepting her
sketches of "Children's Clothes",
and If her good luck continued,
she'd manage. And knowing her, I
knew that she would.
Since her sketches vnere proving
so profitable, and took up the great
er part of her time, she soon dis
continued her baking. She'd laugh
and say that she was living a life of
idleness now, yet none of us child
ren ever remembered seeing Mama
During my last year in college,
studying to be a lawyer, I was hurt
seriously in a bus wreck. I realized
from what the doctors said that
they were doubtful if I'd make it,
but I refused to believe it until
Mama said so. Finally, she arrived
at my bedside. Although she had
ridden all day and all night, she
was as bright looking as an Angel.
She looked me over carefully and
when I tearfully asked, "Mama, am
I going to die?" She smiled as fear
lessly as always, "No, my son, for
God knows that I need you; 'you
just wait and see, for we'll manage."
As Mama promised, I did re
cover and am now an established
lawyer. What little success that I've
enjoyed has been entirely due to
the wonderful example that she set
me of never giving up when theh
going seemed hopeless. Now that
she's gone, I've come to realize
many things that I here-to-fore
hadn't understood. The most won
derful thing is, I've uncovered her
secret of always having complete
confidence that she could manage.
This secret, I found in her old
worn Bible, where most every line
of the promises that God made,
were underlined and litterly rub
bed out from constant reading.
With complete confidence that God
never fails, she knew that she'd
never fail her children when she
promised, "Don't Worry, for we'll

Barden Gives Views
On Education Plan
To Farm Delegates
"I will not compromise on the
principles of separation of Church
and State in Federal aid to educa
tion," Congressman Graham A. Bar
den said in an address before the
KmJi Carolina Farm Bureau in
Raleigh recently.' -
i A pending Senate measure. Bar
den said, would permit too much
"meddling In the affairs of the
states' by federal officials and
would compromise on the principle
of separation of church and state.
Speaking of the House bill on
federal aid to education which be
helped .write Barden said that it
would set up and equalisation fund
to be distributed among the states
without Federal control and for
public school only. i ;
He recalled that he was denoun
ced last year by Francis Cardinal
6pellman of the Catholic Church.
Cardinal Spellman crltized Barden
because a federal aid meeasure he
introduced would not provide fed
eral funds for parochial schools and
for such services as transportation
and school lunches.
"On this Issue I will not compro
mise and I hope the American peo
ple will be alerted to it and will
not compromise," Barden said.
State College Hints
To Home Makers
Iodised Salt - Many people think
of Iodine as a brown liquid in the
medicine chest rather than as a
food essential Tet small but steady
quantities are needed by the body
for normal growth and develop
ment, healthy skin and hair, alert

People who know our physi
cians, nutritionists and others con
cerned with health are asking all
to look for the word "iodized" when
buying salt and to make sura they
are getting this health protection.
Because only one part iodine in
10,000 parts salt is needed. Iodised

make up for vitamins and minerals
