WEST VIRGINIA'5 OLDEST NEWSPAPER CHARLES TOWN, W. VA. BEST MEDIUM OF ADVERTISING FOR REACHING THE BUYING POWER OF JEFFERSON COUNTY AND ALL SURROUNDING AREAB FOR MORE THAN ! ieYEARS. Thursday, May 11,1961 MOTHER'S DAY Americans have a phobia for having Special Days. It has gotten so that there is hardly a day on the calendar that special tribute isn't paid to one person or ahother. But the day we observe Sunday, May 14, fits into that catagory of days we think are especially worthy of observance. Sunday is Mother's Day. It is a day for paying special tribute to the mothers of America, and we are glad to join in the chorus. There is no love that quite parallels that of a mother for her child, and that which is good in most of us is but a reflection of the love borne for us by our mothers. There are few things in the world that can be described as totally unselfish. Short of the love of God for His children, we can think of nothing as totally unselfish as a mother's love. It transcends the power of words ~ describe it. It is a tender love; it is a sacrificing love. In a world that seems at times to be going to ruin this example of love stands out, shining through all the darkness. Would that mankind could find some way to harness this power for good and follow its example in the hundred pursuits that it does not touch, except indirectly. For if this kind of love was uni- versal we would have really reached that as yet unattained era, where the brotherhood of man becomes reality. We are glad a day has been set aside to honor the mothers of Amer ica. And we hope the honor for them will not be confined'to a single day, but will be a year 'round matter.
