Girl Scouting Program Opens Garner—The eighth year of girl scouting in Garner has begun, with an adult committee organized and some troop leaders selected. More than 100 girls are enrolled here at 3 program levels. Twenty-five local girls were among 150 scouts from Belmond, Clear Lake and Garner at a fall roundup held at Mclntosh Woods state park last Sunday. The town committee on girl •couting which will set ihe poli- cies for local scouting, met recently at the home of Mrs. Bud Pritchard, Garner director of girl scouting. The group consists of the following committees: Finance committee (representing Rotary club)—Con Roe, Curtis Riehm and Luberne Wetterling; leadership— Mrs. Pritchard; camping—Mrs. Chet Stille; program—Mrs. H. G. Voetberg; advancement chairman—Mrs, E. F. Bock. New leaders are: Troop I, senior—Mrs. Don Roe, Mrs. H. G. Voetberg; Troop II, junior high— Mrs. Chet Stille; sixth grade- Mrs. Edward Buntenbach, Jr.; fifth grade—none yet available; fourth grade Brownies — Mrs. Doris Young, assisted by Mrs. Kenneth Juhl; third grade Brownies—Mrs. Hugh Bush; and second grade Brownies—Mrs. Luverne Welter! ing. The leadership committee would welcome the services p£ any adult woman who would give an hour a week to the fifth grade group. At the recent roundup, Mrs. Bush had charge of the "Melody Ranch" assisted by senior scouts Claire Lou Housh and Norma Jean Houdek. Their stunt included a cowboy song and dance. Two Garner scouts, Virginia Bock and Sharon Yohn were presented with swimmers' badges earned during the summer. Seven adult leaders from Garner are attending the weekly train ing course at Mason City. They are Mrs. Wetterling, Mrs. Roe, Mrs. Buntenbach, Mrs. Juhl, Mrs. Young, Mrs. Stille and Mrs. Bush. Harvest Soybeans Britt—Harvesting of soybeans is in full swing in the community and elevators are kept busy. The moisture content is the lowest of any year since soybeans have been produced here. Beans are averaging 25 bushels an acre. After the American Revolution, loyalists fled to the Bahamas where they started a boom in cane and cotton plantations—a boom which faded when slavery was abolished in 1838. Jaycees Defer Jamboree Plans Charles City—The Junior Chamber of Commerce adopted a policy of sponsoring no further jamborees, pending outcome of county fair promotion. The Jaycees have had the jamborees in the 4 post-war years. At the same time plans for a dinner meeting with other representatives of Floyd county organizations which might be interested in organizing a county fair were approved. The proposed meeting would include representatives of agricultural groups, Chambers of Commerce and fraternal groups. Members expressed the opinion that the jamboree was too big a project for the limited membership and financial resources of the Junior Chamber. It was pointed out that the jamboree proper has not been a financial success for the past 3 years, and that the Jaycees cannot stand the financial drain. A team of Jack Wintering, Aron Borner, Gene Woolridge and Harley Peters will make up the Jaycee team for a water battle with the'volunteer firemen team. The battle, a part of the city's fire prevention week program, is scheduled for Oct. 15 at 10 a. m. on Blunt street, north of Central park. Nine members were selected to arrange for store windows to be used for a soap drawing contest Halloween. They are Glenn Frey, Elling Goplerud, Bill Mathis, Bob Monroe, John Tift, Bud Conrady, Lou Nefstead, Dick Binger and Bob Eggert. The members authorized the board of directors to prepare a ballot to be submitted at next months' meeting. Voting on officers and directors for next year is scheduled for the December meeting.
