Evening Independent (Newspaper) - November 2, 1974, Massillon, Ohio 6Massillm tertepwfcnt Nov x Norman Vincent Peale Positive Thinking You can if you think you can He was one of the most unforgettable characters I have encountered in life A Syracuse banker told me he was the wisest business he had ever known A clergyman ritod him as the host example he had ever seen of a downto earth practical religious man His name was Marlowe B Andrews and he headed Andrews Brothers wholesale procers who did business on Salina Street Syracuse New York many years ago He was a modernthinking man even that far back and it is said he operated the first supermarket in the country bringing in perishable goods by fast express train from California HE DROVE a magnificent team of fast horses down James Street breaking whatever speed limits they had in those days And he won many a horse race on ice when Onondaga Lake was frozen in those cold upstate winters Brother Andrews as he was called due to his religious predilections was president of the local rescue mission He became so interested in saving souls that he turned his business over to his brother so he could give time to Christian work But a fortune was lost so Brother Andrews went back and made the money over again He retired a second time to the mission work and again a fortune was lost This time Brother Andrews went back took control of the business and kept the fortune I never knew a man who had a more acutely developed gift for making money In fact I hung around with him for a long time hoping to acquire his secret but never did get the bang of it Brother Andrews aJso had a flair for Invention He had a big family and noticed the enormous effort required in washing and drying dishes three times daily There was no such thing as an automatic dishwasher at the time but Brother Andrews figured out one for himself It really worked although his wife complained that he broke most of her dishes in his experiments It is said that some of his ideas were incorporated in the subsequent development of this piece of household equipment I was Brother Andrews pastor young and unmarried at the time But I did have a young lady and one day I took her to see my friend at his farm in Tully Valley As we walked with him in his garden he picked a peapod in which nestled two peas and he pointed out to us that all nature goes in pairs a nonetooveiled hint that we should get married We did that quite soon to Brother Andrews delight I had a problem one time raising money for the church and went to consult Brother Andrews about it I told him I didnt think I could raise that amount of money He said If you think you cant but If you think you can you can So start thinking Then he declared that one should never begin any undertaking without praying about it and he directed me to Ret down on my knees and he did the same I shall never forget that prayer of his II is printed on my memory as though it were yesterday and it has been all of 40 years Dear Lord this young man needs to be a positive thinker He is dedicated to Your work but his faith is weak He needs money for Your church but doesnt know how to get it and in fact doesnt believe that he can raise whats needed Now if he will start having some faith I will give him five thousand dollars I asked in bewilderment and still negative where will we get the rest of it Why where you just got that five pryaing for he answered with a grin He then proceeded to make a list of men who should give Theyve got it that I know So go to see them and show some enthusiasm think positively have faith believe in your cause and in yourself and they will come And he added Tell them what Im doing That should shame them into doing no Activated by his faith and sensing his canny approach I made the calls We went over the top and raised the money Over the years I have often heard the voice of my old friend saying You can if you think you And how right he was POSITHOUGHT FOR
