The ceremonies were held to drive away the evil spirits who were responsible for ill- ness, darkness, barrenness and cold. The Maypole was the symbol of o O o life and fertility.

This may be hard to rites were performed. Sinister paw- believe but Friday was once the Sabbath for many peoples. The word "Friday" comes from a com- lnation of three Norse gods, Frey, Lord of the solar disc and god of fertility, Freya, his sister, goddess of love and Frigga, the wife of Wo- den or Odin, the one-eyed god. In honor of Frigga, the goddess of love and marriage, the early Scandin- awans thought Friday was their luckiest marriage day• Many Hindus regard it the same way and today most Scotch people expect the best fortune to follow if they marry on Friday. O O o Our words "hell" and Friday both come from goddesses intimately as- sociated with cats. Hel was the daughter of Loki, and goddess of the dead and underworld. The Norse mythology made the cat a figure of worship. Freye, the Venus of the North. goddess of beauty and fruitful love, rode in a car drawn by a pair of cats. In time in South- ern Germany, Freya came to be known as Hell, and though still kind and beautiful, she now repre- resented only the winter season and became known not only as the god- dess f ][fe, but also of death. When the N 'ald Teutons were con- verted i lristtanity, Freye was corqd :'the mountains as a witldm 'name 'Trlday" be- ca os bY witches for . 2eje ;were sen-, erally in--ties in the dark of the moon andn a guP of twelve.

Pioneer Manufacturers of ROTARY LAWN MOWERS AND SNO-BLOS ers were supposed to ride through the air. To banish them• fires were built around the villages. The next day, the youngsters brought new green boughs and flowers to their cottages to be used in the ceremon- ies. At dawn a wreath was left at each cottage door by a troop of joyous carolers who wakened the sleeping householders to greet the mornin of May day. Good fairies blessed each house which had some- i thing greeff on the door. Those who believed in fairies put out howls of milk for the refreshment of the visitors and soon it was nll gone. I can just bet it was! e Oo A May day custom that we have inherited and which is practiced ex- tensively, especially in smaller com- munities, is that of giving May bas- kets. Among the New Englanders the practice was to give dainty baskets of pretty crepe paper, filled with fresh flowers• adorned with tiny bows and containing a hidden sweetmeat in the bottom• The bas- ket was taken to the homes of special friends and after a quick ring of the doorbell the donor ran off as fast as ever he could. In the case of members of the opposite sex the giver was supposed to receive a kiss (if caught) from the one who got the gay remembrance• May bas- ket giving is quite popular among the small fry in Park River each year but, I have gathered, it is not so popular with the mothers  who have to fix up the baskets. In fact, the "baskets*' mostly turn out to ,be slaezy paIr napkins with, the o, hers brout to the cl.ter wttha string or rubber band $1oldilNL,the candy inside 'til it begins falling out the bottom, that is. Can't say that I've heard anything about any kiss- ins accompanying local May basket deliveries. But it sounds like a good idea. Oo But to get back to Friday, the 13th --here's some advice for tomorrow. Don't walk unaer any ladders, es- pecially if somebody is working part way up on the thing. You may get a conk on the head from some tool. or other item and THAT cer- tainly would be bad luck. If you accidentally spill some salt. grab a little of it as quick as possible and throw it over your left shoulder to avoid evil consequences. Spilling salt any day is mighty ominous, but on Friday, the 13th... it's curtains! I o O o If a black cat should loom on the horizon tomorrow, run for your life and be sure the black one doesn't cross your path or you are in for a I spell of bad luck. Such as stumbling over him. maybe, if you are on the fast move. And for pity sake, watch out what you do with mirrors on this day of ill repute. Should you be so unfortunate as to break one, you may as well resign yourself to some tough going the next seven years, because that's what the old superstition says, You smokers had better cheek carefully on that three- on-a-match business tomorrow. Its never a wise practice, but on Fri- day the 13th. Wow! Mighty unlucky, they say. And. while you're at it. keep a weather eye out for any big trueks or vehicles with careless drivers tomorrow or any day--its bad luck to get run over by one of 'era and I ain't kiddin'• R Have You Heard?
