W. C. T. U. COLUMN
b e n e d ic t
Some one when asked how they
managed to accomplish so much that
w>g v.orth while in life, said, “ It is
because I have a friend.’’
We can count our acquaintances
by the score, but those friends who
really know us and understand our
problems, most o f us can count on
the fingers c f one hand, and these
are they who influence our lives
largely— they love us not because of
our faults but regardless o f them
fortunate is he who possesses a few
such valuable friends. Frances ' E.
Willard, who was a friend to the
friendless protrayed in her life the
motive power o f the Master Friend
who said, “ Greater love hath no
man than this, that a man lay down
his life for his friends.”
Not many o f us are in a position
to do the worth-while things to the
extent that Frances Willard did to
them, but each o f us can try to be
a sincere friend to those who care
for our friendship. The question that
confronts me, is not so much wheth
er 1 have a good friend but whut
kind o f a friend am I to the other
The most wonderful thing in this
world is to have
A friend, who you know under
Who shows it in his eyes and who
lists it in his voice,
Who throbs it in the grasp o f his
Who sees all the good, and is blind
to the bad,
Who shares in your sorrow or jo y ;
It matters not what, he judges you
Keep the gold and forget the alloy
Who shares his portion and asks not
Be it wealth, be it love, be it
Such a friend has a wealth beyond
wealth o f this earth,
A solace in life ’s darkest hour.
Who don’t have to tell you in words
he’s your friend,
It shows in every act he bestows;
Let come, then, what will, blow wind
good or ill,
He never misjudges— he knows.
— Anon, from Boy’s Life
Foreign Minister Vandervelde is
reported to be o f the opinion that
Belgium will eventually go dry.
Principal A lfred E. Stearns of
Phillips Academy, at Andover, Mass,
indicates what he believes to be a
typical attitude on the part o f youth
by quoting a prize winning essay at
a large city high school. The essay
was entitled “ What Young People
Should Do About Prohibition,” and
the paragraph quoted reads:
“ What can we young people do?
Not all o f us may vote. But we may
all treat the law with the common
decency which it demands; and may
expect our friends to do as much.
We may study into the problem of
prohibition, weighing carefully each
proposition and each table o f statis
tics. Wre may each hold an opinion
and know why we hold it.
whatever our final theories may be,
we may exert whatever influence is
ours to give this ‘ infant law’ a
chance in life. It asks no more. It is
you and I that shall benefit from
this great experiment. If the test is
allowed to continue, you and I shall
know at last its worth. We shall see
its effect upon our children, and
our children’s children.”
The Dallas News says, “ Un
doubtedly, personal liberty is a good
thing. But we don’t like to ride with
a driver who is full o f it.”
Great emphasis was recently laid
''pon an alleged report o f the Met
ropolitan Life Insurance company c f
a sixfold increase in the number of
deaths from alcoholism in the past
six years. The Metropolitan in 11(20,
reported a death rate o f only .6 of
one per ecnt from alcoholism and
*n 1026 the figure was 3.6. It will
be noted, however, that 11(20 was
the first prohibition year. The rate
>0 IK 13 was 5.2. The figures indi-
aete an increased death from alco
holism since the first benefits of
prohibition were realized, but a
rate far below that obtaining in the
uays o f licensed liquor traffic.
Mr. Mark R. Shaw, who rcpre-
r»*nts the Boar d o f Temperance, pro
hibition and Public Morals o f the
Methodist Episcopal church in Japan
recently called attention to the fact
tha* the savings because o f prohibi-
tlor- in the United States amounting
^ach year to six billion dollars,
have amounted in the seven and a
half y»ars since the prohibiUon
liolicy was adopted to over fifty
tillion dollars, or more than the en-
*,r* wealth o f the Japanese empire.
