A FINE EXAMPLE
Douglas Corrigan, the 31-year-old
mechanic who hopped over the Atlan
tic in his 1900 old plane, did an unusual
thing when he refusedi a glass
of "Irish whiskey" and took Instead
a glass of cool water. His refusal
was not offensive In the least. In a
most courteous manner to those '-who
wished: to?do-hftn honor, he said,
"Thanks, I don't drink; give hie a
glass of water." The refusal was the
6anie as If sitting at a banquet table
where a most delectable menu was
being served'. If there were something
on the menu one did not like,
why partake of the same because
others did? And why should one do
things because it i? considered
smart? Today there is little Individuality.
The masses are followers' antl
not leaders. Reflected glory is a 111 >
mentary thrill, hut the man who
thinks deliberately and wisely is the
one who makes history worth reccrding.?The

Life is a funny thing, If is made
of upa and downs, good and bad,
happiness and sadness, and sometimes
these come together. Now
take for example when the boys
and girls "go off" to school for the
first time. The mothers and fathers
are happy that they can afford
their child a college education...:
but at the same time it Is a very
sad experience for most mothers
and fathers when they realize
their son or daughter will not be at
home like he always has. They
wake up to the fact that John, or
Bill or Mary will not be home for
their three meals a day, and will
not sleep in the same beds they
have since they were babies. I
know from personal experience
that it is pretty tough or. Mothers I
and daddies. I heard how two |
mothers were talking this week,
one had a son who was gone and
the other had a daughter, they I
were happy, yet they were sad. 1
Coth had a good cry together. J
son is leaving Sunday, and I actually
felt sorry for him. He wanted
h's son to go to college, yet he
wanted to keep him home with
him. But such is life .TIME

I slipped off Monday and saw

I was out at the ball park Tuesday
to see the fellow do some fancy
.hooting, and believe irte. he was
really good. He splashed eggs, cabbage,
potatoes, oranges, canned tomatoes,
milk, all over the park.
The expert marksman, who Is a
cousin of Rev. W. A. Parsons, during
his exhibition said that he had
never smoked a cigarette or taken
a drop of intoxicating liquors.
Preacher Hamm was tn the omce
after the shooting and said if he
could preach and I could publish a

I was up at the Victory Qin the
other_ day, and got into a conversation
with P. D. Herndon and Tom
Harmon on the subject of cotton.
And that fellow Herndon certainly
knows his cotton. He knows it,
from the seed to the bale, and then
back to seed again. And talking
about "pulling" the fibers to determine
the length and price, he is
a champion puller too.

In several recent utterances, advo
catcs of the various forms of totalitarian
government have described theii
methods as evidences and attributes oJ
But they are wrong. The surrendei
of the rights of the common citizen U
either one man. as In dictatorship, 01
one group, as in Communism, indicate:
precisely the opposite. It is ah evidenc*
of national weakness.
The rise of a dictator to unlimited
power docs not prove that that dictatoi
(s strong. It shows that the people whe
accept his tyranny are weak.
The^ success of a clique in grasping
control of an entire nation docs not
prove that that clique is able and courageous.
It shows that the natloria
character has become feeble and timid
For both the dictator and the politics
clique gain power in proportion a* Uu
people lose courage, self-reliance anc
the civic virtues. That's why the newei
Isms of Europe, however they may fascinate
the few, can never win the great
body of American citizens.
Courage, pride and self-reliance art
part of our national heritage. They art
the seeds from which grew our Constitution.
They constitute the basic elements
of our Bill of Rights. They an
the qualities which give reality to oui
