Maxie Miller: I am, bringing you
a problem which to me is serious and
embarrassing. I am married and be
cause of lack of means I am com
pelled to live at home with my par
ents. But we are cramped. My moth
er is all right but my father is a dif
ficult proposition. He doesn’t smoke
and doesn’t like for my husband to
smoke in the house and when we
have company I’m always afraid he
will explode about smoking in the1
Another thing we can’t have any
social affairs at our home because
father objects cards cigarettes and a
little harmless dancing. And he in
sists that we should not allow our
company to remain late and disturb
his rest. I wonder if you can advise
some way to bring father up to date
so things will be better for us. Mag
Maggie: My sympathy is more
with your father than with you. He
has his ideals and has the right to
have them and practice them- He has
worked hard for his home and has
the right to enjoy it without the an
noyances you young people give. His
views ar.d his ideas of conventions
are well founded. My advice is that
you'll not try to change your father
but that you will conform to his
standards or MOVE. Most young
people are both unfair and unreason
able in such cases as yours but they
are wrong. However prevalent may
be the custom of coercing and humil
iating parents it is wrong. Again I
advise conform or move—Maxie Mil

‘Tis not in arrant “thumb-worn '
We find the world’s most urgen.
These by searching we shall find
In “the art of being kind.”
Well to learn whate’er we can
Learn from nature God and man
But chiefest for human mind
Is this “art of being kind.”
Solemn vows men often break
Friends and friendships dear forsake
But the tie which best will bind
Is “the art of being kind.”

Text: Give us this day our daily |
bread—atbhew 6:11
The lesson of this petition is three |
fold. It presents the following:
1- The Dependence of Man. Of
ten people are won’t to boast inde
pendence but it is p f.b m- '
The richest man in the v. oi .d -is de
pendent on the lhany who supply h's
dqily needs- Especially is he as well
as all others dependent on God- God’s
| sunshine and rain make food pos
j sible. God’s oxygen laden air an
God’s abundant water give him life.
He may call this the work of nature
but God is the God of nature.
| 2- God’s Bounteous Provision. Be
cause of his helplessness and his
. utter dependence God delights to
supply to man freely and fully what
ever he needs for physical susten
ance and man is so constituted that
this must be done daily.
3. The Spirit of It All. Jesus
Christ was expressing and emphas
izing the spirit in which man should
make his necessities and his desires
kr: .v.n. II '■ n. . to make arrogant
demands. He : not to plead any
rights or claims* Cut r.s an earthl)>
child would do he is to go humbly yet
with confidence to his own heavenly
Father and ask for daiy bread- And
we have the wTord of Jesus “Ask and
it shall be given ”
The Father will give more than
physical sustenance. He will g'^e
constantly and unstintingly of Hie
Bread of Life that comes down from
heaven and which satisfies and sus
tains the soul
_ Founder’s day exercises honoring
the late Dr. Lucy E- Moten were held
