what he was trying to say. It
just depends on where you are in
the U. S., which way sounds right.
From where I sit, whenever we
criticize someone for sounding fun­
ny to us, we ought to think how we
sound to them. It’s the same as
choosing your liquid refreshment.
I’m accustomed to a moderate glass
of beer—you may like ginger ale—
but who's to say the other's wrong?
I’d say we're both right!
Following are quotes from the
address of Benson Ford, before
the Los Angeles Junior Chamber
,if C om m ence W e r e p r in t esp ee- |
ially for our Jaycees:
‘•We all talk so much about the
material benefits which we have
achieved in this country that I
think we may sometimes forget
that our accomplishments stand on
a religious foundation. Any future
accomplishments must stand on
the same ground. We can't hope to
do anything significantly new un­
less we work toward high purposes
— unless we keep a sound balance
between the material and the

at a free society is being attacked
by selfish interests in many parts
of the world, it is especially im- |

has not only rights, but responsi­

How Would You Say It?
Curley Lawson's cousin from back
last and a few of us got talking
,hen he was here visiting, and I
ouldn’t help noticing how different
e said things.
For instance, he said, “ Lifting
hat 200-pound bag of cement al-
nost killed me.” “ You mean sack
f cement?” asks Curley. (That’s
he way we’d say it.) “ No,” inter-
upts young Elliott who'd spent a
ot of time down South, “He means
i ‘poke ot see-ment.’ ”
It was good for a chuckle, any-
vay. Bag, sack or poke—we knew
