Fear of Scandal
BY VIDETTA ISH
(For Literary Service Bureau)
Back in other days women were
“mortally afraid of being talked
about-” A man would not visit the
home of aonther man, in his absence
If one did, the wife would s«e to it
that blinds were open, and shades
raised. If it was summer time they
would sit on the porch- But now,
it is “all different.”
In those days it wa» considered im
proper for a woman to go to the of
fice of a doctor, a dentist, or even of
a photographer, without somo one a«
companying her. But “them d^ys is
gone forevor,” and women, married
and single, go wherever they choose
and remain as long as they choose.
Those were the days of chaperon
es. Often little brother or little sister
“went along” with big sister and her
beau, not for fear of what they might
do. but so the people would not talk
about them- Now. girls down In their
teens go anywhere, go to parties and
go to distant communities without
chaperones. Beter the fear of scandal
and the observance of conventions
than the laxness of these times.

Text- Be not deceived; God it not
mocked; whatsoever * man soweth,
that *hall be also reap—Gal- 6:7.
The series began with the thought
expressed in the text, “No man liveth
to himself and no man dieth unto
himself.” It means no man can be
independent of his fellows—that every

man sees the effects of his evil life
upon his 0wa children, and grief
tears and distresses him, he is in the

4. Retributive Justice Comes In.
Justice in inexorable; it Is relentless
It demands “the pounr of flesh.” The
punishment may be deep sorrow,
heart-rending disappointments, shame

ostracism by one’s fellows, penury in
«ld age; but the reaping is inevitable.
Yest, social sins affect others—
many others; and they bring their
own punishment. This is the force of
the text used here.

CCC CAMP NEWS
Company No. 1728
Oar first council meeting was held
last Wednesday night- We accom
plished the task of appointing var
ious officers for oar government.
After the meeting, there was a pro
gram. Harry Swanson made wonder
ful speech, the subject of which was
“Keep Climbing.” After talking to a
number of fellow members and co
workers, I find that many of them
don’t have faith in it. They seem to
think that it is a good thing but don’t
think it can be made a success. We
now have a chance to make good. and
also to make historp. This ohanca
is one of the greatest ways to learn
to be good citizens in the cities or
states in which we live. We should
have faith in our new government,
and be willing to cooperate with it
Faith must be good for you. Fear is
a poison, and faith is the antidote
Fear produces failure and misery;
faith produces happiness and success.
Faith not only should, but does, ac
complish lots of things. I am not
referring to any forms of religious
faith- I am speaking of certain at
titudes of ir,ind. It strengthens the
mind and helps us to think clearly. It
creates ambition, confidence, deter
is the secret of efficiency, success.
So if each and everyone of us
would cease to doubt and would have
faith in ourselves, we could mak«
this go over big.
And ahvays remember:
“If the hill of success you would
If the medal of honor you would
You must not stop to pine and sigh
Just because others are passing by.
But keep climbing ”
The road may be rugged, steep and
And you might have to travel it
In the heat and in the bitter cold.
But keep your eyes on your goal,
And keep elimbing.
If your fe«t slip and let you fall down
Don’t lie there on the rocks and
Any cry like a helpless child,
Get up and face life’s problems
with a smile,
And keep climbing.
Others may quit and fall by the way
“I can fiad success here,” they
But remember that there will always
Better fruit ®t the top of the tree.
So keep climbing.

at our last meeting.

BETTER NOT SAY
BY R. A. ADAMS
,(For Literary Service Bureau)
If you should ever feel inclined
In haste, to utter words unkind,
If you’d pursue the wiser way,
Take this advice: “Better not say.”
If you ar® tempted to resent
Some cruel thrust, your wrath to vent,
Remember, gross offense despite,
“Two wrongs can never, make one
When angry words would utterance
Such as ’•would catfse another pain,
Or heavy burden on Him lay,
Remember this: “Better not say.”
If calmly should be one’s lot,
Should proof of guilt be, or be not,
Judgement suspend, and, lest you
Be thus condemned, “Better not say.”
