Kucher Art editor Eleanor c. Lewis december 1933 for Christmas thinking / a Christmas Means Many things to Many men but above All else it Means that Christ gave new emphasis to this teaching therefore All things whatsoever be would that men should do to you do be even so to them. And to this thou shall love the lord thy god with All thy heart and with All thy soul and with All thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it thou Shalt love thy neighbor As thyself. On these two commandments hang All the Law and the prophets there is enough in those simple sayings to save the world from its trials and tribulations and it cannot be saved from them except As these teachings get full expression in the doings of men. This meaning of Christmas we commend to your thought with our Best wishes for a merry Christmas. Her business a farm woman in Wisconsin pistol in hand held at Bay a crowd of seventy five men strike pickets who invaded her husbands farm to capture a loaded milk truck. I f you were to ask her whether or not the economic changes and adjustments of these times and the accompanying turmoil were any business of the farm woman she would quickly and emphatically give you Quot yes Quot for an answer. Farming is More of the farm woman s business than to help with the production of milk eggs and what not and to stand guard Over the products. It is her business to study and to understand All else that is a part of farming a to the last step. In the past she has usually allowed herself to be shooed away from the economics of agriculture and related subjects but no longer so. She is destined to learn about them and farming will be the better for it. Things Are moving even when you Are on the Way out of a deep j Woods it takes patience and time to get out sometimes As much time to get out As to get in. That is Worth remembering when most of us Are complaining that the governments program for agriculture is moving slowly. Believe it or not the general situation has been much improved. Let us recall a few facts mortgage foreclosures have been checked. The government is putting Money into the refinancing of mortgage debts at the rate of some millions a week. The government is helping Farmers to finance current farm operations both As individuals and As cooperatives. About $100,000,000 of government Money has gone to Cotton growers around $150,000,000 is going to wheat growers $30,000,000 has been made available to take surplus butter off the Market probably about the same amount went into reducing a surplus of pigs and sows now Steps Are under Way to put out $350,000,000 in a plan to reduce Corn and hog production and raise prices millions have been added to the tobacco growers income. As compared with a year ago the Farmers situation As to prices is improved. ? further the government is committing itself to new policies for agriculture such As were not considered possible a decade ago. Shout a Gid Dap Quot if you will but remember also that things Are moving. Search yourself there a bodily health and there s mental health. Both Are essential. It takes a sound mind in a sound body to give life its fullest satisfaction. If either one were to be rated As the More important we might find reason for giving first place to mental health and yet As we go about it to get Well or to keep Well we usually concern ourselves Only with the body and rarely with the mind. We regulate our diet we change our habits we increase rest and sleep we take special exercises. We rarely think about adjusting our mental habits. But in Illinois Rural women Are giving heed to mental health. They Are asking themselves a series of vital questions and then adjusting mental habits accordingly. Here Are the questions try them on yourself 1. Do i have a definite goal for my Job As a homemaker 2. Do i believe in my own ability to do the Job 3. Do i perform my work cheerfully 4. Do i have a Well developed sense of humor 5. Do i make adjustments easily 6. Am i generally free from worry 7. Am i interested and enthusiastic 8. Do i cooperate Well with other people 9.

Do i keep Cool in an emergency 14. Do i cooperate in Community enterprises 15. Do i avoid Quot feeling sorry for myself 16. Do i a enjoy poor health Quot 17. Do i alternate work rest and recreation with these searching inquiries you May make a diagnosis of your own mental state and you May also be Able to make a pretty Good prescription for yourself if you need one.
