Making Good by Doing Good
We often have occasion to make mention of sons of Fulton County who are winning honors, for themselves by the services they are rendering out in the world:  We are glad to make such mention for we are proud of them and we realize that the best and most valuable crop the county ever has produced is the "crops" of young people that have grown up her in Fulton County and then gone out into the world to work and to serve and to demonstrate their worth and 'mettle'.
   But it's not only the sons of Fulton that are "making good" and giving us reasons to be proud; there are daughters of Fulton as well as sons!
   One of them is Mrs. Ione Adrich Conant of Santa Monica, California, a school girl and later a teacher (and an excellent teacher) but she found her opportunity for her best service out on the Pacific Coast.
   We have just been reading from the Santa Monica Evening Outlook, an account of a visit of the Music Section of the Santa Monica Bay Woman's Club to Sea Cliff House, Playa Del Rey, where Mrs Conant presides over her home for mentally retarded girls and is succeeding in developing in the lives of her charges the consciousness of their own ability for usefulness in the world and at the same time an ability to get something of the joy of living out of their existence.   The article refers to Mrs. Conant as "The woman who has found the real meaning of love, that it is not always joy, but is always service; and may be sacrifice."   The words of appreciation of Mrs. Conant's wonderful work reminds us that she is one more of Fulton's daughters of whom we may well be proud: Another who is "making good" in the only possible way, by doing good.
