The religion of the Bible is woven

customs, and even our eating
habits. It crops up in the most
Who would ever suspect, for
instance, that those pretzels sitting
on the table at the neighborhood
tavern had a religious origin? But
they certainly did. Pretzels were
originally given by priests to good
children who learned all their
? prayers. The design represents little
arms folded in an attitude of
Or consider those ten pins at the
end of the bowling alley. At least
one of them would never have been
there had it not been for those
staunch men of the cloth who ran
things in early American Puritan
colonies. In their zeal to stamp out
all forms of evil, which, of course,
included anything at all that was
? fun, the Puritans outlawed the
English bowling game, "nine
pins." You can guess what hap
pened next. It wasn't long before
the local boys got around the law,
but preserved their fun, by in
stituting the game of "ten pins."
That's why, even today, bowling is
a nine-pin game in England and a
ten-pin game in the United States!"
You know that lattice-work crust
^ seen on thousands of mince-meat
V pies every Christmas? It was ori
ginally intended to symbolize the
manger in which the baby Jesus was
laid after his birth.
In earlier days, school children
learned to read from primers filled
with reljgious passages. Sometimes
a little cross was printed before the
first line in a primer, to remind the
child to pray, "Christ's cross me
speed," before beginning his
studies. You know, of course, how
^ children have a talent for short
ening words. That little prayer
eventually was contracted to "criss
cross," a word which has several
uses in our language.
It is said that the game of
tic-tac-toe originated from a
symbol of the cross. And, as your
dictionary will tell you, the game of
dominoes got its name from the
black winter hood worn by clergy
? men. And, by the way, the red
inked dates in the church calendar

TIME SAVING, TIME-SNATCH
Are there too many demands on
your time to get everything done?
Why not make use of those small
parcels of time that normally go to
waste throughout the day; time
spent commuting by bus or train,
waiting for a ride, holding on the
) telephone, waiting at a child's
music lesson or doctor's office.
A "tifne-snatching kit" in a desk
drawer, by the phone, in the pocket
of your coat, or in a briefcase or
purse can help you use those
parcels of time. To assemble your
kits, merely place all the materials
for an easily interrupted activity in
a zip storage bag to keep the
fe activity handy. The following sug
gested "time-snatching kits"
should spark your ingenuity:
Stationery Kit - Place stamps,
address labels, stationery, enve
lopes. letters to be answered, and a
pen in a zip storage bag in your
briefcase, purse, or a handy draw
er. When you find yourself with a
few minutes of waiting or riding
time, write a letter.
| Mending Kit - Keep needles.
? thread, buttons, and patching ma
terials in a zip storage bag in a
drawer or on a shelf near the
phone. When you know you're
going to be chatting (or waiting),
pick up a garment that needs
mending and pull out your mend
ing kit to snatch those minutes.
Reading Catchup - Occupy those
irritating times when you're forced
^ to wait with a professional article
you've wanted to read, or try an
article in your favorite magazine
you haven't had time for. crossword
or other word puzzles, or that best
seller you've promised yourself to
read. Clip and slip article<s) into a
zip storage bag or your purse,
briefcase, or coat pocket.
Hobby Kit - Organize a hobby
kit with a large zip storage bag and
. several smaller zip storage bags.
f Place your project-in-progress
(needlework, model building,
stamp collecting, etc.) in the large
bag~.with materials and tools in
separate, smaller bags. Place your
kit in a convenient place for you to
pick up when you have a few spare
Coupon Kit - Sort your coupons
into categories and place coupons
in small zip storage bags labeled by
category. (The bags allow you to see
your coupons at a glance.) Place
the smaller bags in a large zip
storage bag, then store the large
bag where it will be convenient to
take to the grocery store. As you
clip coupons from magazines or
newspapers, stash them in the large
zip bag. When you're waiting on
the phone, use the time to sort the
newly gathered coupons into the
smaller bags. Keep a red pen in
your coupon kit for circling expira
tion dates or other pertinent infor
