One of them asked, "What is a star, I've often wondered," The other little boy said. "Here's what my mom told me," "Stars are the windows of Heaven where angels peep through. Up in the sky they keep an eye on kids like me and you, they cry each time we are naughty, their tear drops are the rain, but when we're good, they are smiling and they shine again." Sounds good to me. Who knows? (from a popular song I have.) lorence's rner On the Lighter Side- As the minister was complet- ing a sermon on temper- ance with great emphasis he said, "If I had all of the beer in the world, I'd pour it in the river.

"How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of and which no other people on earth enjoy" Thomas Jef- ferson. That is a statement worthy of consideration. One might wonder what specific blessings Jefferson would list when he made this statement. Initial thought may turn to gov- ernment, as Mr. Jdfferson, at this point in time, is known for his role in the founding of America. There are always comments about the government, are there many, however, that describe it as a blessing? Can it be that the form of government can be a positive or negative thing, as well as the people who are governing and the actions they undertake or do not undertake? M. Tait's Jus' Thinkin' America was founded and organized as a Con- stitutional republic, not a pure democracy, nor a dictatorship, nor a mon- archy. Some degree of study would be needed to compare and con- trast these and other systems. It is said that a constitutional republic is desir- able as it allows for development and growth of individuals and their gifts and ideas and abili- ties, more so than other systems. It also needs participation by knowledgeable, unselfish citizens. Could these be the blessings of which Thomas Jefferson spoke? Our role in circumstances and the form of government under which we live, are these things on which we should be thinkin'?
