THE HAPPY SEASON
Now with the coming of the cooler weather
one starts thinking to the "happy" part of the
year. The cool days of the past week are but
a reminder of the winter season to come. And
with the immediate beginning of this season the
influx of holidays comes upon us. This is the
"happy" season; the season of wishing "good
will" to our fellow man. At this time in the
course of world events, this season is sorely need-
ed by this old world and its inhabitants.
For years now, in fact as far back as some of
the youngsters can remember, all that can be re-
membered of the world state of affairs is war
or talking of impending war. Always the threat
of danger. Now another war has just ended
temporarily just in time for the seasons .of
Thanksgiving and Christmas to help influence
the world in their talks of peace. Maybe this
season of Christian, and brotherly love holidays
will influence the peace talks and not fade away
after the-season is gone.
On the brighter side, we have the children
thinking" of Hallowe en, looking for awesome
masks, planning carnivals, etc., the nation look-
ing forward to Thanksgiving and offering their
thanks that it will be a peaceful Thanksgiving.
Last but not least, the whole nation is looking
forward' to. C eristn ,j- and:;not losing ite of thed;
fact .tat it i tl- I ,!thdav of the one who died
to make this a world of respectable men and
to offer man a haven of everlasting security.
This is the best season of the year to prac-
tically everybody and it is nearer than you think.
THE CREAM OF THE CROP
You may or may not be excited over the fact
that more than half of all Americans read weekly
newspapers. We arrive at this statement by
starting from the most reliable base available-
N. W. Ayer and Son's Directory of Newspapers
and Periodicals-which reports there are 9,782
weekly papers with an average weekly circula-
tion of 20,944,000. These are very round fig-
ures, which do not include the readers of more
than 750 papers which do not give circulation
figures, and about 450 more with free, or partly
free, "controlled" circulation.
Thus, while you may be sure there are far
more than twenty-one million American families
depending on the weekly paper for their window-
on-a-cockeyed-world, we'll be ultra-conservative.
Multiplying the N. W. Ayer figure by four (the
average US family is four-plus, and the country
family is larger) we still come up with 83,776,-
000 readers, which is well over half the national
Far more important than the figure, is the
fact that it represents not merely half of all the
people in America, but the TOP HALF.
It represents the CREAM the most in-
dependent, self-reliant and influential half of
America. It represents, the ,people who know
their representatives-on the town council, the
county board, in the state legislature and in the
Congress. It represents people who know the
source of all strength and wealth is in the good
earth. It represents people who, for the most
part, actually own a piece of their country-if
only enough on which to reside.
STAMP LICKS MAN
What this country needs, according to Sena-
tor Frank Carlson (Rep) of Kansas, is five-cent
postage. The Senator, as chairman of the Sen-
ate Post Office Committee, and also head of an
advisory group studying the Post Office Depart-
ment, says that his students may recommend
that Congress boost non-local first class postage
from three to five cents. This, he thinks, would

of forming a town band here. Dean
said that if at least twelve mem-

you think of a better community

he was here to stay until he died,

Its significance is largely in the
area of security and military pre-

"Preparation" is written over
every aspect of the whole story of
the founding of Christianity.
John the Baptist, whom Jesus
called the greatest of all men
born of women, prepared the
way, and called for preparations
"Prppare ye the way of the Lord,
make His paths straight."
We must never forget the long
period of preparation in the life
of Jesus himself.
Think of the boy Jesus in Naz-
areth, waiting patiently, pre-
paring ,ully, listening obediently
,before He began that ministry
: which was to last so shortly in
S'earthly years, but which was to
be timeless and endless in its

Education is a basic means of
preparation today. It is.not the
only means, of course. The poet
Tennyson prayed in "In Me-
morium" that knowledge should
grow from more to more, but
along with more of reverence.
And Paul's prayer for the dis.-
ciples was that their love should
abound more and more in knowl-
edge and discernment.
Without education we could
not fave had the English Bible
or the church.
"Be prepared" is still the
arftchword of'Christian Droares.
