JUST A MUSUT
Bys BOB GRADY
It's been a beautiful Easter Day.
As I quoted last week:
God's In His Heaven

paring the ad for Warsaw Floral
Co. - "Spreading Frangranee Over
Duplin," and that Just what Mr.
and Mrs. Smith did.
When I walked into their floral
shop Saturday afternoon and saw
the piles of corsages ready to go
to Kenansville, Falson, Beulaville,
., Magnolia, Warsaw, and literally all
over Duplin, I thought "all this
being spent for flowers, and Just
for one day how much good all this
- money could do." This morning
when I stood in the church yard
and saw the smiles on the faces of
the girls and ladies parading to
church in their new Easter bon
nets and all trimmed out with a
corsage, I thought: "It's worth It
all. Yes those few dollars spent
on the fairer sex made even the
hardest of males swell up with
pride." And as the choir sang in
the choir loft the beauty and frag
rance of everything seemed to
make us all more humble and peni
tent So if Easter can create this
feeling, then isn't this Just what
Christ lived and died for? The
more often we can feel and act in
this vein the more we will get out
