I really don't know about that, for my bravery has not encountered that much of a challenge. But I am afraid to throw things awayI I am a confirmed packrat, having the outstanding symptom of the I-might-need-this-sometime syndrome. As a consequence, every closet and shelf in the house is bulging with things I continue to hang onto because I just can't bear to throw them away. Not long ago I was making one of my every-single-day searches for something I put away in a place whose whereabouts I could not possibly fail to remember, but had; and what do you suppose I found there on the top shelf of the closet? A large grocery bag just bulging -- with what? I dumped the contents out on the bed. It held, incredibly, two old can-can petticoats, a tangled mess of odds and ends of woolen yarns, and a handful of doll clothes left over from our oldest daughter's beloved JackieI My bookcase contains a whole shelf of pamphlets, old Bible teacher's manuals and booklets that I shall probably never use again, but I MIGHT, you seel I have endless sheets of paper filled with Bible notes dating from many years ago until now. Earlier this year I did gather them all together, intending to arrange them according to subjects and file them; but I have not done it yet. These are obviously not in the packrat category, for they are valuable to me as reference material; but they do add to the clutter. I periodically trim back scraggly house plants, but I can't bear to put the trimmings in the waste basket.

There are other things stashed away -- pretty bottles, news clippings, a collection of picture postcards, magazines I might want sometime, old Christmas cards and greeting cards of all kinds, bits of lace and trimmings and used zippers and buttons, a basket of wooden spools (because not many are made any more and they might get to be valuable antiques in about a thousand yearsl), a box of beads, a drawer full of scarves and gloves and doodads that I shall probably never use, bits of memorabilia tucked here and there, letters by the boxful, baskets and boxes and drawers full of scrap of piece goods, off season plastic flowers and foliage, piles of old beginners music left over from the children's early lessons, stacks of business records dating back nearly forty years ago -- you name it and I have itl There are some things that I simply have no excuse for keeping, like a pair of fancy shoe buckles, an old chignon no longer wearable, boxes that rings and watches came in, old spectacle frames, plastic boxes of all kinds, useless jewelry, old handbags and other junk. Why do I keep them? YOU tell MET ! was talking with a Seymour friend, Inez Boyd, along these lines the other day. She had what I consider a good solution -- potentiallyl She said, "1 have a big box in my closet (and she measured off about a 30-inch square with her hands, saying her collection had outgrown a smaller one) that I call my "cooling-off box." When I can't make up my mind whether to throw something away, I put it in my cooling-off box for a time." Of course, my friends, there would be the obvious necessity of a weeding-out now and then. You know, 1 have a hunch that Inez still has a problem. That outgrown smaller box tells me something, and it sounds exactly like what would happen to me if I had a small cooling-off box! Dam site cleared, ready for inspection Wilbur DePauw, owner of DePauw Construction Company, said Monday, October 15, that his workmen had finished clearing the site of the flood control dam he has just completed 13.5 miles south of Clarendon. He said an inspector representing the Flood Control Department of the State Soil Conservation Office, Temple, was scheduled to make an inspection Tuesday. DePauw Construction Company had the contract on this project and the cost was approximately $525,000. This is an SCS flood control project. The dam contained more than 500,000 yards of dirt. The lake which the dam backs up is already full with water going through the spillway. It is already stocked with fish and is located on Bitter Creek, on the Lawrence Hagy Ranch.
