"Things That Matter" by Lucien Coleman The religion of the Bible is woven ? into the very fabric of our folkways, customs, and even our eating habits. It crops up in the most unpredictable places. 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 prayer. 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 gave us the phrase, "red-letter days." Information on ALASKAN and OVERSEAS employment. Ex cellent income potential.

TIME SAVING, TIME-SNATCH ING KITS 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 moments. 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 mation. Shoe Polishing Kit - Collect brushes and rags for shoe polish ing, cleaning, and buffing in a large zip storage bag stored in an appropriate cupboard or drawer.
