There's no one dressed in silk and lace, With painted roses on her face. No voices trained to please a guest; No time to dance, no time to resi. A poor and honest man lay ill. His friends are gathered on the hill. They stood about to see him die, For lack of treatment gold could buy. To them he said, "I soon must go; For God has now decreed it so. Farewell, my friends, I now see rest, At home in heaven with the blest." A king in mansion filled with wealth, Was stricken down with broken health. He'd drunk of wine, and lived too high, On this world's goods that gold could buy. All art of man could do no good; Alone and facing death he stood. No sight of rest allead in view; And naught of help his friends could do. They stood about to see him go; For God had now decreed it so. His gold could not his death atone; For each must pass through death alone.

This fall, some teens will be heading for college just because they and their parents have not considered other alternative. Some teens have particular abili- ties and needs that would be more adequately fulfilled by other types of schools or through on-the-job training. Going to college because someone else did or because an individual feels college is his or her only choice is not always productive. In fact, it can be a frustrating dead end. Individuals do have other choices. When teens don't know what they want to become, work can provide them with opportunities to develop realistic ideas about job expectation and their own abilities. Today, you may wish to en- courage teenagers in your family to seek employment so that they can gain these insights. Some youths go to college af- ter a year or two of working. Many who take this route feel they have gained more from col- lege because they waited. Despite the emphasis on the value of a college education, many jobs are available that don't require a college degree as a qualifJcalion. However, more and more, training for jobs is being required, although it isn't necessarily college training. Many jobs require training that can be received at a vocational center or by participation in an apprenliceship program. Teens who are not interested in college need to be encouraged Io consider their work life atti- tudes, their values, and their do- cial and emotional maturity. Their decisions are important and worthy of parental support. A person's career choice doesn't have to last a lifethne. Many people change jobs or ca- reers often during their working life. At every age, the college doors remain open and other training opportunities are readily available. Young adults who are not mo- tivated to become professionals shouldn't be urged to do so. but they also must be reminded that they need to explore and expand their abilities and not sell short their potential Io achieve. Perhaps the teen in your fam- ily would want to enroll in one or two classes at our community college while getting work experi- ence? TODAY's CHUCKLE: One of the nicest things about growing old is finding your children crossing the generation gap to your side. STOCKING HINTS --- I discovered great uses for knee-high hose and pantyhose with runs. I cut the top elastic band from the tops of knee-highs and the elastic from the thigh and waist areas of pantyhose. I now have three different sizes that can be used for several things. They are great to tie up boxes or piles of magazines or newspapers. They stretch beyond belief and leave no marks or indentations. I cut them in strips to make "rubber bands." Jill C., Zanesville, Ohio ARTIST PAINT BRUSH -- My hobby is painting, and cleaning the oil paint off my brushes was a problem. I used to clean my brushes with odorless turpentine, but got this tip from my art teacher. Clean the brushes with bar soap. Put the soap and brush under warm running water and rub the brush into the soap from side to side, making sure the soap goes all the way up the bristles. Gently rub the soap through the bristles with your fingers until all the paint is removed. Rinse with clear warm water, squeezing out the excess soap ........................... You'll be surprised how beautiful Ciean the brushes get. One more tip: I even removed a spot of oil paint that got on my blouse using the face soap. Turpentine can discolor clothing, but the soap doesn't. It came out great -- not a trace of paint left. Kelly P., Fremont, Calif. OLD RECORDS -- I found out what to do with all those old, scratched 78 rpm records I had. They make great-looking pots for plants. I put a small clay pot upside down on a foil-covered cookie sheet and placed the record directly over it. I set the oven on 350 degrees, and the record heated and melted down over the pot. I let it cool and lifted the record away from the pot. It turned out great, and even has a hole in the bottom for drainage. Melanie D., San Antonio, Texas BATHROOM CARPETING -- For several years we had carpet in our bathroom. To ensure a perfect fit, we made a brown paper pattern to fit the entire bathroom floor and used it as a tracing and cutting pattern on the back side of the carpeting. The carpeting fit nicely since all the mistakes were made on the pattern before the carpeting was cut. Just remember to reverse the pattern when laying it on the back side of the carpeting.
