Often we fall into a “blue funk”
and go grooping around in the mist
of discouragement with the prospect
ahead. On Sunday we were in
such a mood and simply couldn't
shake it off, Everywhere we looked
for reassurance there appeared to
come out of the past and the future
a droning voice that sounded to
us as if it were saying “Futility!”
Indeed we were overwhelmed almost
to the point of beleiving that all of
efforts to make the Watchman worth-
. while to its readers have been futile.
When one looks back over forty
years of earnest effort only to raise
up doubt as to whether they have been
wasted it is the zero hour in mental
That is exactly where we were on
Sunday until we were told of “how
much good” our “Christmas Sermon”
had done some of our readers; until
we opened a letter from far off Cali-
fornia in which the writer spoke of
having been so much impressed with
it that he had a number of his em-
ployees read it,
Then we dropped in here
the desk was the following:
New Brunswick, N. J. 1-2-31
Dear Mr. Meek:
Enclosed you will find a check for
our subscription and with it our
sincere wishes to you for a most
happy and prosperous New Year.
We look forward to the coming
of the Watchman, each week, and
if 1 received as much pleasure and
utility from all the money 1 spend
as 1 receive from the $1.50 which
goes to the Watchman each year I
would indeed be a happy person.

I see the winding path, edged
with butter cups and daises, that

the old orchard, moss covered spring

STUDENTS EARN FUNDS
DOING HOUSEHOLD WORK
A working acquaintance with mops
and dust cloths is a valuable asset
to a young man who is seeking to
earn spending money at the Pennsyl-
vania State College, an analysis of
the calls for student help received
by the student Y. M. C. A. reveals.
More than half of the calls for help
are household jobs, Harry W. Sea-
mans, secretary of the Y, said.
While some of these are such work
as taking out ashes and shoveling
snow, the majority specify washing
woodwork and household work using
a growing number of students. Sea-
mans pointed out that the number
of jobs are too small to warrant the
average State College student
pending on work at the college for
all of his expenses.
