THE OHI0 COUNTY TIMES HARTFORD, KENTUCKY, APRIL 10, 1975 2 Whatsoever Things By Donald E. Wildmon "I Don't Want To Learn A Trade" I was on my way to Memphis. It was a cold day. Rain had been falling all morning. Down the road I spotted a youngster with his thum b stuck out. I figured it wouldn't take long for a person to get soaked in the rain so I pulled over to pick him up. He didn't talk much once he got into the car. But I was able to get a little conversation from him. He was on his way to Memphis after visiting his brother* for a few days. He was sixteen years of age and had dropped out of school in the ninth grade. He made his living repairing guitars. I gathered that business wasn't all that good He was going to night school to get his GED degree, the equivalent of a high school diploma. "After that, what?" I asked. He wasn't sure. I suggested that he volunteer for a branch of the armed services. I told him that they had a program to help finance his college education if he decided to go to college. I suggested that he could even learn a trade while in the service, and would be able to make a living through skills of trade. Evidently I had touched a sour note, for he then made a statement which reflected his attitude very vividly. "I don't want to learn a trade," he replied. "Why not?" I asked. "Because if I learn a trade it might be too confining," he replied. I have done a lot of thinking about that reply the past several weeks. A young boy, living on a few dollars a week, future uncertain, didn't want to learn a trade because it was too confining. He wanted freedom, freedom to do as he pleased when he pleased. I guess his attitude is typical of many across our country. They are afraid to commit themselves to something which might require something of them they didn't desire. They want their freedom. And they want it without responsibility. Well, freedom without respon- sibility is no freedom at all. It is laziness and cowardice. It is living off the labors of others, which is a form of selfishness and even stealing. Suppose Alexander Fleming had desired that type freedom that he didn't want to commit himself to something, learn a trade? We wouldn't have penicillin. Or what if Frederick Banting had made the same decision? We wouldn't have insulin. Or Albert Sabin and Jonas Salk? Polio could very well still be claiming thousands of lives every year. What many people have failed to learn is that life will not pass out any meaning or purpose until you commit yourself to something worthwhile and then pursue it. Pursue it through good and bad times. Pursue it despite the setbacks which will come. Pursue it even when it is disgusting, and hard, and lonely. Pursue it in the face of every temptation to quit which comes. It may seem odd, but nevertheless it is true, that we hardly ever find freedom outside of committment. Freedom doesn't come with irresponsibility, but freedom comes in the midst of responsibility. Responsibility which requires something of us. "Make me a captive, Lord, and then I shall be free." So wrote George Matheson. His truth is yet to be realized by many, including my young friend who rode to Memphis with me.

Joseph O'Donnell Desperate Situation About one-quarter of this world's citizens lack the simplest pre- conditions of human dignity - food, shelter, health, education, work and hope. That is a problem, especially for Christians. The lack of these basic human needs is a far more dangerous problem for the future of the human race than even the atom bomb or progressive military armament. Today we Christians must take some sort of action before it is too late. Fifteen percent of the world's people (a figure about equal to the combined population of the United States and Russia) live and die hungry and are overcome with malnutrition. Something has to be done by us about that, especially if we want to bear the name of "Christian" proudly. It is so very easy to sit back and say "there is really very little I can do to help the poor in distant lands." And as far as direct contact is concerned that is obviously true. But there are many things we can do. Here are some examples: You can encourage your church organizations to make greater con- tributions to overseas' relie! and self- help programs You can enccrage your own national church causes to the economiCS nations? Are you willing own standard of living in order that other a chance to rise up hunger? The problems of poverty and illiteracy is i social problem for perts to solve. It is a well. Our Lord must do unto our would want done for most certainly we to face hunger and wretched poverty ff we How about our Just because most of I live in far-off lands excuse that we are oceans so we cannot has fought wars sent men to the moon Mars. Surely we cannot therefore, that too far away or the ficult. One of the greatest of the Christian we did not rally of aiding needs. Let's get to organizations to send more people with technical know-how to teach the R 1 underdeveloped peoples to help -- eviva themselves. You can write your congressman and senators to encourage them to vote their hearty approval of foreign- aid programs that will really benefit the people -- not just the army or political leaders. (There is so much pressure on our political leaders to cut back on foreign aid that they need encouragement to fight against current).
