EASTER
People's sense of valye .differs so. To one
man Easter is just another holiday-time to
spend with the wife and kids; big dinner,
maybe a movie, or a ride out to see the old
folks; or perhaps a day's fishing on the
Dead Lakes.
To another man Easter is the time for
some deep thinking; a chance to come to
terms with himself about his aspirations, be-
haviour, and relationships with other men.
Go to church? Oh, sure. They'll both go.
But one will be a sort of disinterested par-
ticipant-just going because it's expected of
him; only half listening once he gets there;
perhaps embarrassedly waking from dozing
when the time comes to start 'home.
But the other fellow will do some tall
thinking on his way to church. He'll wonder
whether a universal prayer for peace can't
help the world. He'll think about the millions
of people nowhere near a church of their
faith today; people for whom totalitarianism
has darkly tried to turn back the calendar
hundreds of years. And he'll wonder whether
the Easter spirit isn't even surer, clearer and
brighter within them for the suffering they
bear. Once in church he'll hear the promise
of the triumph of right in the choir's song
and in the preacher's words.
Leaving church he'll think of how grateful
we Americans should be for the very simple
-and precious-privilege of observing Easter
as we always have-and always shall. He'll
look sympathetically at his dozing neighbor
and think: "Wake up, mister. What you can
hear in church today is important. Important
because it's one of the most valuable free-
doms guaranteed you by our country's Bill
of Rights. You wouldn't want to be caught
napping, if that freedom was to be militantly
threatened! Better wake up now, mister,


let's .all stay wide awake, land our freedoms
can't be taken from us!"

WHAT OF APRIL?
In looking .over the major -wars in which
the United States has participated, we find
that five out of six were entered during the
month of April. 'Check the list:
April 19, 1775-American Revolution begun.
April 24, 1848-Mexican War started.
April 12, 1861-Start of War Between the
States.
April 25, 1898 Spanish-American war
started.
April 6, 1917-United States entered World
War.
Many in high places have been predicting
that this country will become involved in the
present European war very shortly. With the
past record before us, will i. be this month?

One of our local boys pulled a real boner
at the last dance held in the Centenniia au-
ditorium-he told the girl he was dancing
with that her stockings were wrinkled, and
she informedd him that she had on no stock-
ings.

The merchants and business men of Port
St. Joe start their Wednesday half-day clos-
ing next week. We'd like to see the custom
continued throughout the year, instead or
just during the spring and summer months.

Many amateur gardeners of Port St. Joe
have planted their plots of ground and are
sitting back waiting expectantly for a crop
similar to those shown in the seed catalogs.
Trusting souls.

A government bulletin on "How to Treat a
Black Eye" is now available. A better bul-
letin would be "How to Explain a Black EyL.'
--Winter Haven Herald.

One of the unexplained mysteries of gar-!
dening is why the weeds always grow so;
much better than the flowers.-Brunswick
(Ga.) News.

Income payments increased at the end of
the year to the highest dollar total recorded
since October, 1929. Groans and gray hairs
probably followed suit.-Savannah Press.

A doctor has discovered that dancing makes
warts on the feet. Some dancers won't have
to worry about that.

If the meek inherited the earth today they
would sure have a big repair bill.
