THURSDAY, JANUARY 23, 1941 iiii i AMERICA'S BETH-ES-DA" Text: "There is in Jerusalem a pool which is callec" John 5:2 "From time +o time, according to leg- end, an angel came to stir the waters of Beth-es-da, and 'whosoever then, first after i the troubling of the water, stepped in, was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.' "It is not revealed how many of those who trusted in ancient Beth-es-da's ancient leg- end had been made whole. But one was there who for thirty-eight years had kept alive his faith in the pool . "There is a pool which conforms to the of legend . It is the pool of America's confributlons to the war against Infantile Paralysis . . . Each dime is a drop -- silver drop which joins its silvery fel- lows to form our Beth-es-da . . None of our afflicted waits long, weary years beside the pool we create and replenish The waters of our Beth-es-da rush out to fil the afflict- ed and care for them . . "Powerful are the waters of our Beth- es.da. ' IT SEEMS INDUSTRY WAS MISTAKEN ABOUT "OLD MEN" It has been hard of late for men over 40 or SO years of age to get o job in many trades. But now in many occupations, particularly the defense industries there is a demand for skilled men up to years of age or even older. It may seem hard to some young fellow, if he loses a chance at a because of fear by employers that he might drafted. But under present conditions, he )bably won't have to wait very long for em- The older man has hod an even tougher time, the world did not seem to value his-judgment and experience. It seems a waste of human resources when a ret body of elderly folks, both men and wome re dropped by industry as unprofitowe.  Tun of'skill and knowledge has been accumulated by their toiling hands and brains. Setting aside that and experience seems like allowing some rich of nutritious fruits to go to waste, without gathering it for the benefit of the hungry. WORTH-WHILE HOBBY His job is feeding the maw of a tremendous furnace with cool. His hobby is feeding a horde of bird friends. As the custodian of a large suburban junior high school, Dick has a full and busy day end often, on cold nights, he is shoveling cool far into the night. Yet he always finds time to feed his birds. If you were to look in upon Dick any school after the pupils had filed out of the cafeteria and the waste had been brought to the boile room for disposal, you would find him on his hands and knees separating the sandwiches, apples, end pieces of cake which pupi s had thrown away, from the waste to be burned. He fills a ten-quart pall with this bird food. Tle food is chopped u and put out every day, at the some time, Tar his witing friends. When asked what he does for food over week and vacations when the school is closed he "1 haven't disappointed them yet. I save out each day for several days in advance of vacation so that they don t get as much but they don't go hungry." "Yes," continued the book lover, "1 have a i ire volume here and there on my shelves. You , ! ,l do know what a rare volume is, m nape. " " said the fellow who favored food, 1 what rare means in a Parents everywhere, are always interested in the way other parents train their children and handle the problems that come up, especially those concerning boys and girls of teen age. It seems as though this job quite often falls mostly on the mothers, so I feel sure you will be interested, as one woman tells her experience: "When I was a child, my parents taught me to make my own decisions and this method was most effective during ad- olescence. When I wanted to do something, they would tell me what to expect if I did it, and what to expect if I did not do it. Then they would close the conversation with something like this: 'Think about it, and if you believe that you should do it---do it.' t "It made me furious at first, because if they had said "no" I could have cried about it, pouted, or ,, "" ,e' bad results of the action could have been b on them. But with the responsibility all on me, there was nothing to do but make my decision and take the consequences. This training has been invaluable +o me through college, my professional life (teach- ing) and now as a wife and mother." Maybe you have solved a similar problem in your family and could help some other mother by teJJlng us about your method. Won't you wrfe a let+er felling of your experience? Your name will not be used. From Springfield comes a leHer, from one who says she reads our column each week. She sends this suggestion: "When friends call on cold afternoons or evenings, mulled grape juice and dainty cheese crackers are appetizing, quick- ly prepared, and easily served." Recipe for mulled Grape Juice. To one pint of grape juice add two cloves, a stick of cinnamon (about two inches long) two tablespoons of sugar, juice of half a lemon and one orange. Heat to the boiling point and simmer a few minutes. If you prefer a sweeter juice add more sugar. Other juices may be substituted for grape juice. (Thank you, M. D., for your lovely leHer.)
