A new feel- ~g of hope comes over the mind as ttie days become longer and the sun rises higher in the hea- ven. The increased warmth thaws out cold, feet and chilled desires and purposes of the heart. People form new pro- Jects, and branch out in new Undertakings. In former years many imagin- ative persons were so thrilled that they wrote poems about spring, and sent them on to the newspapers. The editor may have put many of them into his wastebasket, but some got print- ed. They expressed the joy that People feel on being relieved from the cold and restrictions of Winter. The farming districts will soon be full of activity, as the farm- ers prepare to plant their crops. The home gardeners are laying out their plans, and deciding What to do about seed and fer- tilizer and digging up the soil. The country will bless them if they increase the space they cul-i tivate, and take a hopeful view of their ability to care for it. Life seems on an ascending SCale in spring. The trees will Soon be budding and plants sending up their little green SProuts in the garden. The peo- l~le look forward to pleasant life OUtdoors, to their favorite sports and pastimes The sap rises in the maple trees, and the sugar maples gather their sap and turn out a grand products. As the season of growth has Come, people feel that they can Share in that advance and de- ~iaelopment, and so may be more ely to start new enterprises in the spring. As the plants in the garden and the field show themselves above the ground, so new . plans and aspirations in \ l~uman life appear and people try to accomplish them. The spring this year finds at- tention on the tremendous un- dertakings of the American for- ces to invade the continent of EUrope and free it from Nazi domination. If it succeeds, and there are strong reasons to be- lieve that it will, those countries Will be like the land which was COvered with deep snow in win- ter, but which is set free by the Warm sun, so that the soil can SPring forth in beauty and pro- dUctiveness again. POST-WAR BUILDING The prediction was made by a high official of the Federal Housing Administration that some 20,000 builders will con- struct 350,000 or more dwelling units in the United States the first year after the war. This will mean a great revival of em- ployment in these trades, and will provide jobs for a grea~ number of workers. It will be pleasant to hear the sound of the hammer in all these places where homes are going up. The people who work on'this construction will only be a par~ of those benefited, as this new building will create an enormous demand for a variety of materials. The progress of the new con-i struction will be watched with the keenest interest by the many families that will then be look- ing for homes. Many families that have been living in crowd- ed cuarters will welconle [hese dwellings. Many women who want to live with their parents while their husbands were in the service will be candidates for such homes when their men re- turn. Probably it will be quite a number of years before the sup- ply of new dwelling units is equal to the demand. The con- struetion of homes has not kept up with the growth of the popu- lation. The demand for new houses will probably be greater than it ever has been before in the history of the United States. The posses/on of one of these new homes will realize the dream that many families have cherished. They will be happy te feel that they can have a home all their own, and can de- velop it and furnish it according to their taste. Many will plan how they can decorate the sur- rounding grounds, and make these dwellings nests of beauty. The new homes built before the war were very attractive, and those to be constructed after the war will be equally so. There will probably be new fea- tures which modern ingenuity has devised. The sight of all these homes going up will cheer the people, and give evi- dence of a new period of hope and prosperity. ~V--~ LETTERS FROM SOLDIERS The navy's flying boat Mars recently brought nearly 800,000 letters from service men to their home folks, the same being landed at San Francisco. This is an indication of the tremen- dous number of letters that are passing between these men and their home folk. Whether the service man's letter was written on some roll- ing ship, on an improvised table in some camp, or under what- ever circumstances, it is an ex- pression of his love and longing for the home people Those folks at home~ look eagerly for those letters, and it is a day of joy when one of them appears. They watch anxiously to see if the postman is going to leave them. The eagerness with which they are received teaches them the eagerness which he feels to get them, and is a reminder to write to him just as often as possible. Even if there seems absolutely no news to give him, just the to make him happy. letter from home is enough The folks who think the old home burg is the best place on earth are apt to make it still better by taking hold to help good movements.

There has been for many years a distinct growth of such unity. The divisions that separate the Christian denominations are not quite as sharp as they were. People have grown more toler- ant of differences of opinion. When a country is at war, all elements are drawn together in the common effort. There is an increased tendency to respect those who hold differing opin- ions. The young people do not seem to take their religious dif- ferences quite as strongly as their elders did. Some people look forward to the time when the Christian church will all be united in one great organization. That time is probably far distant, for there are still important differences between the various religious bodies. The various rerlgious or- ganizations represent to some extent different types of per-i sonality. People often work'be~- ter among their own type ,.f personality than they would if submerged in some big group including all kinds. Out on the battlefronts where the men are encouraged l~y the chaplain of all faiths, the de- nominational fines at home are largely forgotten or they seem I less important. In the home field it would seem as if many of the smaller denominational bodies c o u I d !consolidate and join together, SUPPLIES FOR PRISONERS One of the reasons for gener- ous contributions to the Ameri- can Red Cross, is the wonderful service it gives in sending sup- plies to the Americans who are prisoners of war. The men who are confined in German prison camps probably have very plain and limited fare. It is a grand day for them when they get packages from the Red Cross. The package will bring tears to their eyes, with the conscious- ness that the nation at home has not forgotten them. If they are despondent, it will revive their courage. The Red Cross supplies make up for many lacks in their food, md make them stronger and )etter able to stand the hard- ships of their confined life. ADVERTISING IS NEWS Business people otten ask what is the best way to write ad- and accomplish greater results. There are many towns in which there are too many churches and more than can be well sus- tained, and they would promote the Christian cause if some of them would unite. Religious Unity can be obtain- ed even if such unions are not brought about. It exists when church people respect the rellg- lous convictions of neighbor churches, ~and where a thor- oughly friendly feeling exists be- tween the various churches. All forms of religion in this country represent the honest aspiration of the human soul, and any sin- vertising notices for a news- paper. Perhaps the best way to ido it Is to keep in mind that ad- vertising is essentially news. It gives people information that they want to get, and it tells about what is happening in the stores. It tells of business places that have obtained lots at spec- ial values, which they offer be- low the usual price. And it tells of stores that have surplus stocks that they want to clean out and will cut prices to do it. It is a story of what the stores are doing to please the public, and all the advertiser has to do is to tell the story in. plain cere belief is entitled to respect, language.

PAGE R~qREE iii RETURNING VETERANS The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States raise the question of how many of the re- turning service men after the war will settle down in their home towns. They suggest that many may be drawn away by the ties which they are forming elsewhere. They recommend a program which communities can adopt to induce the returning men to settle in their home towns. Millions of these men have traveled widely and seen many cities and states, and some may be inclined to settle in some of these places. This will be a mis- fortune for their home towns. These communities should be thinking of how they can per- suade these men to come back. Providing them with a good job will be the mot influentual ar- gument. The old saying has it lhat distant pastures look the greenest, but there are great ad- vantages in settling in a place where a man is familiar with conditions and where his friends are located. YOUTHFUL FOOD GROWERS LAYS HIS PISTOL DOWN They are full of eagerness to help the armed forces and bring victory, and they know that anything they can do on weed- ing and hoeing and harvesting helps defeat our enemies. In ordinary times many boys and girls are reluctant to do garden work around their homes. Things are different now, with food shortages and the necessity of sending vast supplies to our armies and allies. Millions of youngsters will heed this appeal to help raise the food. ---V RATION TOKENS President Roosevelt has ap- pealed to rural boys and girls to help food production The mes- sage was read on a national Chaplain William D.

Entering~ this non*combatant branch of the service, the Rev. Holland ttope of San Jon, N. M., left behind his well-kept collection of target and hunting weapons. Despite his local reputation as a crack shot, he must now be obedient to the interna- tional law which requires that the only armament allowed a chaplain is "the sword of the Spirit".

ALCOHOL FROM POTATOE~ The potato shortage of lasL spring induced farmers to plant a great crop of this favorite vegetable. The potato crop was so big that all these spuds can't be consumed before the spring and early summer ones reach the market. So the government is going to convert more than 18,000,000 bushels of lower grade white potatoes into industrial alcohol. Such alcohol is greatly needed in expanding quantities for .production of war supplies. in Ration Book Four. The plan This will be a good use for is simple and confidence is ex- . .......
