The Green Bough
There is an old Chinese sa~'ing " If
you will keep II ~'!'een bough in )'our
heart, the singing bird will cOllie."
You know, that's a pretty good maxim
for any woman 10 adopt into h('r own
life. There are far loo many unhappy, embittered, soured-on-life individu;lls in th" wodd lind 1'\1 bet in
e\'ery instance the situation wall
bl'ought on when that spirit of hopefulness and receptiYeness which the
"h"TCCn bough" of the provcrb SYIllbolizes, was (ol'ced out of theil'
helltts,
Who Has Ih" Gree n BQu ){h ?
Let's take a few exnmplcs to sec
how it wOl'ks, lIIary and Jenny W(' t'C
ft'if'lIfl!; f rom gil'ihoo(1. Fmnl t hl' liml'
they were vCl'y ~'oung they dreamed
of gelting manied and having homcs
()( their 'Own and children, As fate
would hu\'e it, they 1I('\'cr mnnied,
Whell Mary's chllnce came along, she
had to care fOl' un invalid mother alld
felt she couldn't IlIal'!'y, When her
mother died, l\Ial'~' WIIS In her latc
forties nnd Ilobody nsked her. J enny's
case was a little different but h:ld the
S:lIlIe end result. She was engaged to
II fine man who was killed in an acd-
•
denL nlarbe her gl'le( drove othN

UII in her latc fOI'lies, likewise n

Out what a difference in the two
women, Mary Wll8 a kinrlly, I'hl'l'rful
indh'idual. Most certainly she kept
the "gl'een bough" Jiving in hel' heart.
She worked, and at the office she wus
always cooperativc :lIId pleusunt. She
decol'ated her smull npal'tment brightly :lI1d taste fully, She invited people
to her home nnd made them welcome.
Her nieces and nephews 10vI'd her
verr much lind wel'e al\\'uys dl'o]lping
in to ask "Aul1~ MalOY's advice."
So it was with Mary, What about
Jenny? From a pretty, friendly girl,
J enny, wrapped UI) in her own sorrow,
forgot everybody's (eelings and interI'!;I!I hllt hl'r own, f'ih(> 111'''1'1' rOllllirlN]
hel' friends and whell they called her,
she was gTUff mid l'esel'ved to the
point of nldeness. She was CI'OSS, embittered. It even showed in her fuce.
She looked years older than Mal'Y and
they were the SlIme age. The childl'ell in the neighbol'hood called her
"Old Dragon" and cruel us it was, it
was partly justified.
There was no green bough blooming in Jennr's hem·t. Thel'efore, no
Hinging bird of huppiness could eve r
come,
ulle ww; kill~J ill th ... """, th .. uthel'
is in prison, lI er son's wife died 1('1\\' ing two small children. She has to
do charwoman's work fol' a livin,!:tsupporting h('rS('lf :lIId the grandchIldren. She is :.IW:l)'8 cheerful .md
smiling and seemll hllppy e\'en at \tel'
hard work. She is keeping the green
bough in her hetu1. And every night
the singing bird comes, when she gets
home hom \\'ol'k and two little children thl'Ow glad arms of welconlf'
around hel', lind she fixes supper for
them and tuc ks them safel)' in h('d
:md tells them stOl'i<'6,
JUllt (I few blocks (I\\'1\y ill anothe)'
house. 1'hel'e liyes an eldel'ly \\'om[l11
also-a womall with a beautiful home,
mOlley, sel'\·ants. But she sits alon(',
night after night. !leI' childl'ell and
grandchildren seldom come to sce h('l'
because she is always so cross and
unpleasant, chiding them fol' ima,~i ­
nal'y wrongs, sharply correcting the
ehildl'en for small tr:ulsgl'essions. Th.,
gl'Cen bough is dead and no singing
bird of happinen would dal'e to find
its way into hca' hard old heart.
And so it goes, friend rellden;,
Illease keep a green bough in 110111'
heart.
The S in ;:in K Hird CotllCS
A real singing bini of hap piness
cume to Mary'lj g)'cell bough, holl'c"er. When she WIIS 50, a chlll'ming
widower asked her to marry him. She
did and is sUllremely happy, She never
had the childl'en of her own she always longed for, but her husband's
,!:t1'Own sons aud daughten; 10Ye lind
)'espect her and their chitdren adore
their jolly, 10\'in", "grandma."
Thel'e are many "green bough"
stories all around us, We see examples e\'ery dny.

Presid("nt Edward S mith, 1(,(1, makes
a p resentation in bt' half of th e me mbers,
in thc city of Cincinnati. I am writil1lt
about thc Cathedral of Saini P('ter
in Chains, Th(' histol')' of this beautiful cathednll goes back to th(' rears
flu ring the 1820'a when th(' first
cathedral WU8 put into the building
stuges, Thcn on Non;mbel' 2, 184!)
th(' ol'iginal cathcdral, callcd the
"White A llgt'I" was conseCl'llt('d when
A rchbisholl SUllluel Eccleston of n altilllol'e, l\!:\l'yland blessed this beautiful house of worship, Theil in 1938
the Archbishop tnlllsfelTC<! th (' cuthedral of the u I'chdiocese to Suint
Monica because thC' a rea BI'Olllld the
cuthedral had d('teriOI'ated very badly,
III Avdl u[ 1951 the d."ci"iull WBS
made to I'estor(' the old cathC<!ral.
This was made possible with the gre at
work done by 251 pUI'ishcs which
pledged $;),052,46;;, (This sum al60
was to help continue the building o f
St, Gregol'Y Minor Seminary which
had been hulled a quarter of a century hf'fore.)
Then begall O\'CI' four years of hard
work. Delays were caused by the job
of finding the right kind ot hard
beautiful Dayton limestone that was
nece.ssary to match the original stones.
But all kinds of obstacles wel'e 0\'('1'comc and the wOI'k progrcssed
lhl'Ough the following fouz' yeal's and
on Novembel' ani, 1!/IH thi!! monument to God was I'eady [01' rededication, wi t h Il solemn pontifical muss

Lunslng, Mlchfgan as eelebl'llJlt (he
had bt>en Ol'dained here) and Edwnl'd
Canlinal Mooney of JflJtJ'Oit, as
speaker.
This building pl'oject over a period
of four years had an electrical contract of over $;)00,000 and was haJldIed by the Bertke Eleetl'ic Company
of Cincinnati, onl' of our \'el'Y big
electl'ical contractol's here in t he

on standby at all times and will go
to any town in Jackson County, Mississippi, where relief is needed. I t is
at the beck and caU of all city and
county officia ls, Red Cross and Civil
Defense officials, and any organization
which dccms an emergency exists. I t
can be diJ'ectcd to the most disastrous
area thl'ough emergency units set UJ)
at the police station, fire station, and
l)t'ivate homes of all the amateurs
who comprise this organization.
The Amateur Club Headqual·ters is
centl'al1y located in the building which
also houses Local Union 733, I.R.E.W,
I n the pictures we find depicted the
Disaster Relief Mobile Unit itself,
the equipmellt that makes up the unit
and a tY'pical sight, familial' to quite
a few Mississippians of these Yigilant
men in action going through an emel··
gency drill.
Ail the equipment shown is furllished by the amateurs themselves
except one piece,
First of all we see a nadia-TeleIlhone 50-watt output. custom made
rig for the I ngalls Shipbuilding Corl)Oration of Pascagoula, )Iississippi.
Also are seen one Stancon 120 watt
C.W. Transmitter, one army sUl'plus
rcceiver, one 11S \'olt gasoline driver
power plant, four heavy duty battel'ies for 50 watt transmitter, which
can also be used in case of power
plant failure. Omitted in the picturE!
is one 120 watt Collins Transmitter
..... hich was being O\'erhauled at time
of IliclurE!.
More equillment is vitally needed to
continue the carl'ying out of successful missions and t.his is being solicited
thl'ough tile variotlS Ol'ganizations
associated with the Disaster Relief
:\Iobile Unit,
T he tJ'uck which houses the equipment for the disaster unit was initiated by a 99-year loan fl'Olll Local
Union 733 and it has been continued
throu/{h the effol1:s and spal'e time
work of individual amateUl·S. Local
Union 733 has proudly admitted that
these amateurs are a lso Brothel'
members and has also recognized the
fact that amateul' radio operators
have been very instrumental i n maintaIning disas tel' relief communications
when all other utilities f a il.
Shown operating the e(juiplllent al"C
fi l-othel's R. L , Puul, E. A. Brown,
and R. L, Lide, Also ShOWll entering
the (!J'iver's seat of the mobile unit is
Brother R. L, Lide with Brothe l' E .
A. B rown receiving last minute directions to the afflicted area.
The continued effol·ts of these
amateurs have given Local Union
733 great I))'ide of achievement as
demonstl"ated in the wholeheal·ted
support of the amateurs and various
other organizations.
