THAT DAY AGAIN 3-U-*tt CF. I. Prosperity Pattern Switzerland is a small country without seacoast, without natural resources, without enough -fields to produce her necessary food. The non-homogeneous people—one part speaking German, another French, and a third Italian—add to her domestic difficulties. '"Under these conditions Switzerland should naturally be expected to be one of the very poorest nations in Europe. On the contrary, however, Switzerland had before the war, and has yet, the highest per capita wealth in Europe. This little country pays the best wages known in Europe and maintains Jjhe best living conditions for her workers. Why should a •^ople with the least possibilities come out with the highest average wealth, highest wages, and best living conditions ? Switzerland has a real republic, through which the citizens reserve to themselves real individual freedom. Nearly all laws touching the lives of the people are made locally in districts called "cantons," corresponding roughly to our states. Even the amo.unt of income tax to be paid by the people of each canton is decided locally. I Political responsibility is a reality. And real freedom of individual opportunity exists. Switzerland has the right type of economy. All industry is privately owned and operated. Individual ownership of property is encouraged and protected. A high percentage of people own their own homes and their farms. Thrift is encouraged by both the local and national governments. Switzerland has equal responsibility placed by law upon both labor and capital. Industrial peace is encouraged, both by local and national government. Industrial cooperati-sa prevails throughout the mation. ..- v . '"- . The Swiss do'notfBttNSe eyerafraggression on thei£ neigh bors, in a' search for.living- room." Content with th<Mr_6wn mountains, they have found that the resources of individual freedom, sane economy, and hard work can give them all they ant. These moral resources the Swiss can call their own.

ELEVEN YEAR OLD GREENSBURG BOY DIED France, adjoining, with plenty of natural resources and abundant fertile fields, should now be the most prosperous country in Europe. Instead she is one of the poorest.^ Her socialistic form of government, her nationalization of industry, and her industrial chaos have made prosperity impossible, despite natural resources. France hasn't the right formula. America, for 150 years, has had the right formula. In our own land we have achieved that highest wages, and the best general living standards ever known. We have had the natural resources. But more important, we have treasured these same moral resources that have made the Swiss great. We have had freedom of opportunity. We have made the formula work. Shall we keep the formula and keep prosperity, or desert the formula and revert to mediocrity for everybody? A Cross, or a Torch, or a Living Tree? Each of us has a burden to, carry. Each of us has a load that seems too great for our strength. With one it may be a burden of <n*ief, with another poverty, with another ill-health — or heavy responsibilities, heartaches, misunderstanding, stifled talents, expected opportunities that never materialize. ft) What we make of these burdens, depends upon ourselves alone. They are our load of wood, which we alone can carry. To some their burdens are a cross under which the body is bowed. The valiant may strive to carry the cross, but each step becomes more difficult as the load weighs down the spirit and tires the heart. A few glory in martyrdom—but being a martyr is a lonely life. To others their burdens are a torch. Out of the dead wood of their lives they make a flaming beacon to light the way ahead for those who, follow. They use their sorrows bravely as they face them boldly. The light they give forth is the high flame of courage, brightening the paths of those around them. Still others make of their burdens a living tree. They assume the thankless task of planting their griefs that cut of them may grow a living* thing—a tree which will give shade and comfort to the weary traveler, a place of beauty in the world, where the song of nesting birds may bring solace to the ear as the leafy branches give rest to the heart. They tend their sorrows, not to remember them—but because their griefs have made them warm-hearted, ready to give to others even that which they may never possess for themselves. *■&" To bear a sorrow bravely is a noble thing. But, I think, to bear a burden graciously is the better part. Once I knew a woman who. was living a_ life of what seemed utter drudgery, added to by the ingratitude and querulousness of the one whose burden she was trying to' lift. When someone commiserated with her on her lot and commented on her cheerful, considerate attitude in face of provocation, she said: "Well, if I am going to be a martyr, the least I do is to be a gracious one. There is no sense in both of us being uncomfortable." I've remembered that, and in my own dark hours have tried to follow her teachings. She planted a living tree whose seed has been sown far and wide. a We can make of our burdens a cross, or a torch, or a living tree. Which do, you do? Donald Eugene Jordan, 11, son of Mr. and Mrs. Merrill Muckley of GJjaensburg, died Wednesday, March 5, in Massillon City Hospit- •Jj^li^wp. a heart condition. He had roeen--iinseveral months.
