FACTS AND FABLES By Publlus Meet me in the Memorial Day Parade next Wednesday. Real American Story By Typical American The light of Western Stan By leant Grey STARTS THIS ISSUE OF THS NEWS-TIMES (EDITORS NOTE:) The following article was written by a local reader of the News-Times. He Is planning to have similar articles each week. In publishing these artlobs, we believe we are giving to our readers interesting, educational and truthful thought and hope that they will be appreciated. Fact Is simple event; fable, reflection thereon. True tact ever has local setting, and for that reason is not without wider concern. Fable need not be idle tale, nor always Aesop style. It may be Greek myth or Tolstoian proverb, the wisdom ot an alnclent sage or the folk lore of a modern country aide. Pact must bear the light of all honest investigation; fable must stand tbe testing of all philosophical Inquiry. Fable may bulk larger than the fact, but it must never be divorced from sense. And who shall determine sense? They who posees proportion and balance mingled with quiet humor— the philosopher, those who have experienced much and reflected deeply. Wheen John Wesley was in college, he on of his letters to bis mother, he told how he spent his time, giving certain hours to one activity and another. That wise mother wrote back: "John, I like your plan, but you do not set aside enough time to think, to meditate. You need to digest what you see and read, view it from muny standpoints, make It your own. Thus your words and actions will spring from the depths of your soul nnd carry power. Thus you will become a strong and useful man." John listened to his mother's wise council and the world has felt his power. This fast age might pause long enough to give ear to a like council. Common sense may be the gift of the gods but the gift Is for everyone who will pay the common price: Stop, look, listen and think. While we pause, suppose we auk ourselves, who are the seven great est Americans? Read what J>ohn Robinson says in the June "American" Who are your seven? The three best letters are not more than 400 words telling why you select a particular seven are to receive cash prizes—the letters to be in the hands of Contest Editor, The American Magazine, 381 Fourth Ave., New York City, by June 20; the September issue to announce results and publish letters. Now Amherst and Vermilion prove your common sense; but forget not, "they fall, and they alone, who have not striven." Can any good thing come out ot the Ohio Fanner? Two tarmere were passing the time of day. Said one, "Did you read the 'Farmers' Sermon' by Oeorge Black?" "No," replied the other, "I saw the heading, but supposed it was some preacher stuff about raising bogs that I knew more about than he." "You ought to read those (Continued on hack page.)

WANTED—RAGS. Will pay live cents per lb. The Amherst News Co., Church street, Amherst, Ohio. ElllMllllllll'llllllillliillllll'IIIJIIIIIlIM Under the light of a great truth, America was born. It waa a thought in government so new and overwhelming that it thrilled men's souls. For tl they would face any fate. It was the idea that all men are born free and equal. The most receptive brains of that time crouched it in a wonderful phrasing of our Declaration of Independence. In that setting, we have cherished it to the present day and will cherish it for all time to come. It has been the big theme about which have clustered big deeds and big sentimentB for a centurv or more. Both for America and for the world, let us keep firm the high resolve and meet the enemy of our flag, whether that enemy be here or over seas. Only by so doing can we hope to honor our soldiers and sailors for their high, unselfish and heroic services, —only by so doing can we prevent those who made the supreme sacrifice of offering their lives on the altar of ligerty from having died in vain.
