Wilson 'arm ,1% miles south of- Moravia, where they ha,ve been for three years. Ronald has been a farmer all his life, and enjoys farm life. The whole 'family is fervent sports fans, Ron would even give up a good meal to take part in a ball game. For last summer Ron would ride the tractor and combine all day in the field and hurry in, do up his chores and rush to town to take/.part in the Softball games, He gets equal enjoyment out of witnessing, witnessing, a 'good baseball game and often tries to attend some of the league games, .

When the ajupp blows Ronnie trades off and "en- gineors" hia electric train. The Woodwards farm 420 acres ia tee N*w Hope community and year has 160 under cultivation.. They da hot take an active part in fairs, etc., but have taken their soybeans to the fairs and Doris some bakery goods. Primarily they just naturally enjoy raising good crops and baking respectively. They now also- have a' fine herd of milk cows and a very fine strain of hogs, 'however as yet they have not registered their, stock. Their religious life is a rich one also as both regularly attend the Wesley Chapel church. Ronald is the Sunday School superintendent at Wesley, and Doris also shades Sunday School responsibilities by teaching a class and plays the pi- ano. The Woodwards this year even had their trials with sickness at crop planting time this spring as Donald was stricken with a siege with the mumps followed with a type of pneumonia, upon which it was necessary for him to be taken to the hospital for a short while. And in a few days the community came to Ron's assistance, and tractors, tractors, plows, discs, planters converged converged on the farm one day, putting in hia crop and preparing the bean land. A deed quite typical of this community and one which the Woodwards are quick to take an active part.
