ATTENTION, LABOR UNIONS
As anyone knows who has studied the cal-
endar as closely as we have to determine the
number of "paydays" in each month, he would
have noticed as he leafed through the month
of September that an American holiday, Labor
,Day, falls on the sixth day of that wonderful
month. September is full of good things. It
is the first month of the cooler weather; the
starting of school and Labor Day.
All this perusing through the calendar and
the all but incidental discovery that Labor Day
is all but upon us calls to mind the first few years
we spent in Port St. Joe when Labor Day was
made a memorable occasion each year by the
labor unions of the city.
The labor unions took about the surest way
we know of in bringing their holiday forceably
to.the attention to the citizens of this city. Most
of the older residents remember their sumptious
barbecues they would put on each Labor Day
up until the advent of World War II. Since
ibis wars now over but not forgotten, we would
like to see the unions take up their old habits
again and give some more of their famous "La-
bor Day barbecues" in their own special pre-
war lucious s'yle.
Just think, men, of the t,ood neighborly feel-
ing you would create at such gatherings. You
woula give everybody -, holiday, except the
cooks, as nobody, but nobody, would dare stay
inside and work with one -of your barbecues go-
ing on (and remember it used to be for ,free).
Sucb events are all but forgone and forgotten
in our modern day communities, but we feel
that the friendliness it bestows upon everyone,
even for just the one day, is worth the effort

TO ALLAY THE WORST FEAR
The Christian Science Monitor
When the widely respected Governor of
South Carolina, James F. Byrnes, told a corres-
pondent of this newspaper he opposes ending
racial segregation in the public schools chiefly
because it "will lead to mongrelization" he was
voicing the great underlying fear that besets
many of the white people of the South.
That fear needs a bit of spelling out to
bring it into the focus of the segregation issue.
"Amalgamation" (a more objective term than
that used by Governor Byrnes) goes on wher-
ever races live in contact. The speed of the
process depends less on the fact of contact than
on the traditions and mores of the respective
groups and on the amount of racial pride and
self-consciousness possessed by each.
What Governor Byrnes and his fellow deep
Southerners fear is that placing white and Negro
young people in the same schools will accelerate
amalgamation by making social relationships be-
tween them so matter of course that interracial
marriages might become acceptable.
It is always good sense and good strategy
in solving a problem to ameliorate its most acute
phases first. And a thoughtful Southern- woman
has made a suggestion to this newspaper which
we think worthy of sharing with other good peo-
ple of the South who are faced with a condition,
not a theory: "Integrate" the races in the public
schools and colleges. But at the high-school
level "segregate" the sexes. Place girls, white
and Negro, in separate high schools from boys,
white and Negro.
Such an expedient, of course, promises no
complete solution. And there is a strong case
for coeducation under most circumstances. But
it might allay somewhat the worst of white
fears. And it should be acceptable to much of
Negro leadership, too. 'For Negrd leaders, gen-
erally, teach pride of race also. They are no
more eager to accelerate amalgamation than are
their white brothers. They ask simply that the
individual be not shackled by an inferiority im-
posed upon a whole race.
With us, and to have us visit their
countries. Incidentally, I would say
gton that American business men are
missing a bet if they don't inves-
AW tigate the Latin-American ,area for
trade and investments," Sikes said.

CHOOSING THE BEST
Scripture lesson, Matthew 6:25-33
Philippians 1:9-11 and 4:8.
The Best Investment
An important section of the Ser-
mon on the Mount is devoted to the
matter of choices. Jesus opened the
discussion with, "Lay not up for
yourselves treasures upon earth"
(Matt. 6:19). He was after the
hearts of men, desiring that they
should be full of -light. Jesus knew
that men are given to worrying
about things to eat and wear, and
that they like to hide their trea-
sures and gloat over them.
'Then Jesus told his disciples that
it is .foolish to be anxious about
euch things. God feeds the bird's of
the air and cares for the flowers
of the fields. He gives them food
a.nd sunshine and rain so that they
nveer need to worry nor to be anx-
ious, and "are ye not much better
than they?" (,Matt. 6:26).
Again, what is the good of being
anxious, anyway? Does it make one
any taller or better looking? So
why not trust God for what we need
and live in the calm security of his
love? Worry is a poor investment.
But there is a perfect investment
of life and energy and all that we
have-"But seek ye first the king-
dom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these thinks shall be added
unto you" (Matt. 6:33). The best'
investment' one can make is in
The Best Fruits
Every choice has its effect, every
act its result, every sowing its har-
vest. The Christians at Philippi
lacked understanding and the pow-
er to make proper and accurate
judgments. They lacked the love
and knowledge. which enables 6ne
'to say that one thing is best and
that all others are less good. Paul
wanted to see them grow so that
they might be able to "approve
things that are excellent".
A person can be sincere and at
IGUST 8, 1954
!he same time be wrong. He may
earnestly desire to build' a good
home adn equip it for good and
practical living, bu the will not suc-
ceed unless he has the knowledge
and the good taste to buy and plan
and build all to the one desired end.
In the spiritual realm, Paul said,
"That ye may be sincere and with-
out offence till the day of Christ"
But as every life produces some
fruit, either good or bad, Paul
wanted his friends to be "filled
with the fruits of righteousness,
which are by Jesus Christ, unto the
glory and praise of God" (Phil.
1:11). tnd "the fruits of righteous-
ness" do not come by chance but
from the deliberate plowing, plant-
and and cultivation.
The Best Thinking
Nearly every act of life is the
result of thought, conscious or un
conscious. So the surest way to safe
conduct and superior living is in
thinkingg clean and wholesome
,thoughts. Someone has said that
sowing a thought is the beginning
of a chain of events which may re-
sult in the harvest of a destiny.
Paul must have had some such'
idea in mind when he wrote to the
Philippians. After several items of
exhortation, he said, "Finally, bre-
thren, think on these things"
(Phil. 4:8). The things which he
recommended for meditation were:
things true, things honest,- things
just, things pure, things lovely,
things of good report. If we look
around and remember our own ex-
periences, we will find enough such
things to occupy our thoughts day
What are the real values of life?
How may we find them unless we
are alert all the time, seeking,
weighing, and evaluating? We are
to approve only such things, those
acts, those associations ,as- are dis-
cerned by love and disciplined judg-
ment. God demands that we put
the kingdom and its interests first.

BY RUSSELL KAY
A pencil probably doesn't give
you much of a thrill. You find them
everywhere. They are all over the
house, in your desk drawer, just
about everywhere you turn yo.u
find pencils. Salesmen pass them
out like cigars. They are as com-
mon as pins and easier to find.
If someone were to give you a
little s.lub of a pencil about four
inches long, all chewed up with
the eraser gone, you would feel
insulted. Our sense of values in
this land of abundance easily be-
At the close of World War 1, a
ragged orphan b.oy of 13, in far off
Syria, was trying to learn to write
by rmarking in the dust with his
finger. A sympathetic friend gave
iimi a little stub of a pencil. It
was the first pencil he ever owned.
A precious tiling of great value. It
came f-om America.
The little boy's name was Salom
Rizk. The pencil was his inspira-
tion. A symbol of hope. With his
pencil he learned to form letters
and thep words. It was the start
of an education that eventually
brought him success.
Today, Salom Rizk is an Ameri-
can citizen, a successful New York
business man. But he never forgot
that four-inch stub of a pencil that
he could call his own, nor the won-

DR. WESLEY GRACE Rizk, now known as the Syrian
OPTOMETRIST Yankee and author of a book with
,317 Reid Ave. Phone 456 that title, is a noted author and
Slecturer. Remembering his early
experience he has organized a cam-
paign to provide pencils to the un-
OFFICE HOURS fortunate children of the world.
9 to 12 a.m. 1 to 5,p.m. He is asking generous, warm-
SEYES EXAMINED hearted America to help millions of
youngsters by giving them pencils.

where they are sorted and packed
FOR THE BEST for.shipment to needy children all
over the wo'ld.
Mr. Rizk points out that in Ko-
rea, I-ndia, Burma and many other'
points in the orient and in the Mid-
dle East there are few pencils
available. In some schools there
are only 10 pencils to be shared
by 600 pupils.

Millions of old pencils lie idle in
American homes and offices, in
-factories and schools. They can be
put to good use through distribution
to the children of many nations.
Pencils are treasured possesisons
of children in many lands who are
fortunate enough to o wonne. They
are a source of inspiration and
hope and encouragement. They can
help the voice of democracy spread
throughout the world. They are the
friend of freedom and the deadly
enemy of tyranny.
Rizk treasures a letter from an
11-year-old boy in Pusan, Korea,
Jai O Choy. Jai wrote: "I received
a pencil as a gift. My mother heard
this was sent by American children.
She is glad and thanked you. She
said I should reward you by study-
ing hard. 1 think American chil-
dren must be very fine and good."
If you would like to help in this
worthwhile effort gather up your
old pencils and send them to SAVE
THE CHILDREN FEDERATION,
1721 Park Ave., New York 35, N.Y.
Boy and Girl Scout organizations,
Sunday Schools and other groups
can conduct pencil drives in their
community. An example of what
can be done is shown by results
achieved by Cub Pack 91 in Long-
meadow, Massachusetts where ov-
er 17,000 pencils were collected in
a few weeks. In New York City
Scout Troop 154 gathered a gunny
sack full in less than a week.
.1 went through desks in our of-
fice. and found 33 old pencils; at
home I picked up 12 more. They
are on their way to Mr. Rizk.
