Lewis number 12 merry Christmas to you a the wish you and yours a merry Christmas w wish that y0ur Christmas May have in it a Good measure of the simple pleasures that give greatest Joy. We wish that the fires of hospitality May Burn on your hearths and that the spirit of love and of Goodwill May warm your souls. We wish that you May have Many of the Good material things of life but Over and above that we wish that you May find it possible to say with Dickens Quot i will Honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it All the let youth try its wings t Tow much of a share in the activities of your com Unity do Young people have quite commonly the complaint is that they Are not consulted when plans Are made nor Given a reasonable part in carrying them on. Wherever that is True the Community suffers a distinct loss and Young people themselves have just that much less Chance to fit themselves to take Over the Community responsibilities that they must Bear in due time. It would not be amiss if Young men and women were Given fair representation upon nearly every official governing Board or committee in the Community whether civic or religious. Where that plan has been tried it has brought Good results. Young men and women have a far reaching imagination and a liveliness of invention that lifts plans and programs out of the humdrum and makes them different. One possible cause of an organizations getting into a rut May be its failure to give youth its fair Chance to suggest and to help to do things. Youth is everywhere in place said Emerson. Nowhere More so than in enterprises for the common Good. So let youth try its wings. 50-50 marriages succeed Best it is the �?�10-50&Quot marriage that is most Likely to be successful and Happy that is the marriage that is a democratic co partnership. Young people who Are considering marriage will find in that fact something Well Worth thinking about As Well As in several other facts that were disclosed in studies made recently of some thousands of marriages in All parts of the United states. One such study by or. Paul Popenoe is reported in the journal of Home economics. Of the 50-50 marriages found 87 percent were Happy. Of the marriages in which the Man was Quot Boss a 61 percent were Happy. Of those in which the woman was Boss Only 47 percent were Happy. This discouraging situation appeared among the marriages studied Only 37 percent of All the marriages were democratic co partnerships. In 35 percent of the cases the Man was dominant and in 28 percent the wife. To work out a sound co partnership is not As easy As it sounds. It is not achieved by setting up two Heads in the family with equal authority nor by conducting family affairs like a debating society. It can be achieved Only the studies show by a fair division of labor and responsibility a such a division As was common in the households of the american families of colonial and Pioneer Days. If a cooperative partnership is to be set up by Man and wife then they need to study areas in which their interests and activities overlap. Here Are some of them 1. The fundamental biological relationship of sex. 2. Handling the family income. 3. Dealing with children. Men Are less trained for this than women. 4. The routine of housework. 5. The use of Leisure time. 6. The attitude toward relatives. Quot it is sad to recall Quot says or. Popenoe Quot that a recent study of marriage led to the conclusion that the chances of happiness Are greatest when the parents of both husband and wife Are of All the several thousand marriages studied Only two thirds were counted As successful and that was among marriages of people of much better than Ordinary education. A proportion of one unhappy marriage in three suggests the importance of a careful study of the problem both by those thinking of marriage and those already wed on the credit Side to Ere a another Blessing to put on the credit Side when balancing up the books on farm life and work farming offers men the safest most healthful occupation. Surgeon general Cumming of the United states Public health service sought last summer to find what bearing a Many a occupation had on his health. He found that the deaths per thousand persons men ranged As follows deaths per 1000 population agricultural workers. 6.2 professional men. 7.0 proprietors managers officials. 7.4 clerks and Kindred workers. 7.4 skilled workers and foremen. 8.1 Semi skilled workers. 9.9 unskilled workers. 13.1 one unsatisfactory thing about such figures As these is that farm folks Are too Likely to conclude that because living conditions of farm life and work Are better they need to do less to maintain their health than do Urban people. Urban people have made a great improvement in the past 20 years with respect to health through their maintenance of Public health services. For example about 20 years ago the infant mortality rate in cities was 103 per thousand and now the rate is Given As 66. In the same time the Rural rate was decreased from 94 to 69, and is now greater than in the City. To make the Best better that would be a Good slogan for farm people in this matter of health. Play play probably first place As natures Quot Sweet restorer Quot still belongs to sleep but play is a close second it belongs in a close Hook up with labor. It supplies essentials to life that work alone does not provide. When we work we Bear Down upon our faculties and sympathies when we play we give them new life and Force. So what ? your Community May Well give play full place in Winter plans and not for youngsters alone but for oldsters of every age.
