ENID, Okla. —
“I have to live with myself and so, I want to be fit for myself to know.
“I want to be able as days go by, always to look myself straight in the eye.
“I don’t want to stand with the setting sun and hate myself for the things I’ve done.
“I don’t want to keep on a closet shelf a lot of secrets about myself,
“And fool myself as I come and go into thinking that nobody else will know
“The kind of man I really am. I don’t want to dress myself up in sham.
“I want to go out with my head erect. I want to deserve all men’s respect;
“But here in this struggle for fame and pelf, I want to be able to like myself.
“I don’t want to think as I come and go that I’m bluster and bluff and empty show.
“I never can hide myself from me. I see what others may never see.
“I know what others may never know. I never can fool myself, and so
“Whatever happens, I want to be self-respecting and conscience free.”
Wouldn’t that be a wonderful way to live and make choices!
In keeping with my commitment to live healthier, I make these biscuits. We like them.
Whole Wheat Biscuits
2 cups whole wheat flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 cup butter
1 cup milk
Mix flour, baking powder and salt together. Cut butter into flour mixture like pie crust. Stir in the milk. Mix until smooth. Knead a few times until smooth. Press dough out with hands until about 3⁄4 inch thick. Cut with round biscuit cutter and place on cookie sheet. Bake in 450-degree oven about 10-12 minutes.
