Tie recent war, to be sure, Pas lad a potent part in causing stress and strain to young and old of this generation from anxiety, fear, grief, and bereavement to the uprooting of thousands of youth for the nation1s service then trying to relocate them and their families in the post war days. Adjustments from surface to air travel, with possible weekends in Europe, tell how man has mastered time and space in this world of ours. Now the great unsolved problem before him is mastering himself. His physical prowess, greatly magnified through machines which his own brain has invented, has far exceeded his spiritual strength, also far exceeded his knowledge of his own health and welfare.

So those of us who wish to keep pace and contribute to the world's work must of necessity be strong enough in mind and body to be able to equate ourselves in balanced living in this magic modern world. Etheridge says, "balance living gives health to body, mind, and heart." This involves more than just wishful thinking on our part. It calls for sober planning of our lives with definite health goals, not only in our minds but in our daily practices. We must seek to live larger lives than just routine. Abundant living with work bring? radiance and service into life. Thus it is found that health is the best working tool for operation on the highest level of which we are capable, the is, being useful contributing members of a society which demands service to our 2 community and to our nation and to the world.
