Sometimes she suspects that her neighbors hide when they see her coming up the walk for fear she is collecting for something when often all she means to do is drop over for a friendly cup of coffee. 1 • * • ' '' PREVIOUS TO'EACH DRIVE, maneuvering has taken place that would do credit to an army planning its battle strategy.

Hosts and hostesses included'their children, the Wm. Gilchrists of-St. Joseph, Mo. and Mr and Mrs Don Crank. The Wesley Pattersons were unable to be present due to a recent illness of Mrs Patterson. Refreshments were served atJ* beautifully appointed lace cover> ed table centered with a heart shaped, three tiered Wedding cake, baked and decorated by Mrs Leo Crowley. It was flahk- ed on either side with lighted pink tapers and spring flowers. A bride doll completed the centerpiece. Presiding at the silver service were Mrs Martin Henricksen of Ringsted and Mrs Henry Rasmussen of Kansas City. The wedding cake was cut and • served by their daughter, Mrs Helen Gilchrist and the'punch was served 'by their daughter, Mrs Mary Cronk, Mrs Cecil Bailey and'Mrs Alfred^Petersen. The 'gifts were opened and displayed by two grand nieces, Georgia Lee Roberts and Marty Rasmussen, both of Kansas City. Dorothy Petersen registered the guests. ?

If such a .fund '/r-is established, Workers "must refuse to work on drives other than '' .United and contributors must refuse to give. ' '" ' ONE OBJECTION TO THE UNITED Fund lurking in the back -"my mind until I attended the recent meeting, was that, sad .but true, .'at our house it is easier to give, say $2.00 ten times a year than ' "it is $20 once a year in one big lump. Evidently there, are other -people like that for in other towns the situation is handled by ., " taking pledges on the one drive and then breaking the contribution down to several "easy" payments. ^ < ESTABLISHING A UNITED FUND here will take a lot of work. !'About'a-year's'time is also the expected'requirement. To be truly ", -''democratic, it can't be. left up to a handful of people on a board. ' f , There will be meetings called in the near future.

It had it that a drive worker could save ^ / -eight* hours' a year by going under the United Fund plan. The esti- f ' • mate ds,'far,too'conservative to my way of thinking. It takes much /"'. more" than'eight'hours for just one drive. What'll we gals do ." '!with, all that extra leisure if we g<?t a United Fund plan? Well, rM , ''Ve 'could clean up 1 our dirty houses, we could bake three month's ^»V;'^*WPW of-pies for our families, we could read all sorts of uplifting SW^/Mliterature o'r we could get caught up on our mending.
