HENDERSON ON SEPTEMBER 12 YOU CAST A VOTE FOR THE BETTERMENT OF WALTON COUNTY I LOt ISA'S Dear Louisa, I am engaged to be mar- ried in September and my fiance and I have rented a small apartment. It is just what we want--with conven- iences and as we both ex- pect to keep on working and eating our lunches out it GOLDEN GLEAMS Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatever ye do, do all to the glory of God. -1 Corinthians 10:3~. Man is often vainglorious about his contempt of gl dry. -St. Augustine. How quickly passes away the glory of this world. -Thomas A. Kempis. I make no haste to have my numbers read. Seldom comes glory till a man be dead. -Robert Herrick. seems like a good arrange- ment. But this is our problem. He has been living with his mother who is about fifty years of age. She also has a good job and many friends so she is not the lonely old lady type. But she has re- cently suggested that we give up the apartment and live with her, rent free, but share all the other expenses. She has a yard to keep and has a maid several times a week so I doubt if we would really save any money by giving up the apartment. But the truth of the mat- ter, Louisa, is that I think we will be happier if we are in our own place with no third party around. My hus- band-to-be seemed to like the idea of living in the home he has always lived in but I would like to know what you think about It? Fiancee--~ol. swer: Your mother-in-law will always be the head of the house in which she owns and unless you are willing Are A Dog's B?st Friend assistant director of the National 4-H Service Committee, who has been closely associated with the program for 14 years. Caring for and training a dog is something that can be d one by 4-H members wherever they live in cities, small, towns or on the farm. The 4-H members in the dog care and training program come from all of these areas. Club members involved in the program, not only take care of their family dogs, but they raise and train dogs that aid others, notably the blind. Marianne DuBois, of E1 Centre, California, raised and trained seeing eye guide dogs for the blind. Miss DuBois, who was a national winner last year in the 4-H dog care and training program, also recruited and taught other 4-H'ers how to raise dogs for the blind. "You need a love of animals and a love of people to succeed in this project," Miss DuBois says, "I already have learned patience, the ability to use psychology on both dogs and people, and how to be a weight-watcher for a bunch of Labradors." Ronald Chavez, of Faxon, Oklahoma, another 1971 national winner, set up his own dog kennel for other dog owners. He now plans to start a dog obedience school, for dogs and their owners. Besides the satisfaction of caring and training your own dog, or dogs for other people, 4-H members who participate in the dog care and training program can receive other benefits. Ralston Purina offers four gold medals of honor for outstanding 4-H'ers in each county. State winners in the program receive a transistor radio. The Cooperative Extension Service selects 18 sectional winners from among the state winners. These members receive an expense-paid trip to the National 4-H Congress in Chicago, Nov. 26-30. Scholarships of $700 are given to six national winners at the Congress. Ralston Purina Company September Days also gives educational assistance to the program t h rough offering visuals, record forms and attractive instructional materials on canine care and training. For more information about the 4-H dog care and training program contact the county extension office. School Discipline It is well to take stock of our local schools every so often, and the beginning of the new school year is a good time to review local conditions. Inthe first place, capable school administrators--from the superintendent and prin- cipals on down--are not as easy to find as some imag- ine. The really good offi- cials in this field are the subject of much competition. Parents of children--many of whom have been raised on progressive theories which are now largely discredited --have an obligation to co- operate with school author- ities in every way possible and to make their task easier as they attempt to guide, train and educate the chil- dren of this community. Children must be disci- plined, as well as educated, for if they are not disci- plined they cannot be edu- cated. This is one point parents must keep in mind. LEGAL NOTICE ESTATE OF d C GAUTNEY DECEASED PROBATE COURT Letters of Admimstration of said deceased having been granted to the undersigned on the 12th day of August, 197~., by the Honorable Leland Enzor Judge of the Probate Court of Covington County, notice is hereby given that all persons having claims against said estate are hereby required to present the same within time allowed by law or the same will be barred. Elmer Gene Bass, Administrator, Allen Edward Cook, kttorney for said Administrator 8-17-3tc September, according to the calendar, is the last summer month. The days, until the 21st, are still longer than the nights; warm weather usually predominates. But one detects a change in the sun's light, in the air, in the trees and fields-a change which is reall2~ summer's gentle good-bye. The first cool nights and clear, northern- air skies are autumn's greeting. For theyoung in school, free summer is already over. Fall lies just ahead--with its football, hunting, studies and cold weather, when it ends in late December three months hence, Christmas will be at hand and 1972 practically over. PAGc 9 to accept that fact I think you will be happier in your Jwn place. Privacy is a great help in the adjustments two young People have to make after they are married so if I were in your place, I should think a long time before I gave up the apartment. Louisa.
