Busy Life is Led by Minister's Wife By Mary Lee Hagert School bus driver, day care center and pre-school director, church secretary, Sunday school teacher, organist, minister's wife, mother. ,. Sound like a long list of responsibilities? Although many people would be feeling frazzled with all these activities, Mrs. Paul (Shelby) Pillow is able to talk very casually about her busy life. Her alarm usually wakes her at 5:45 a.m. during the weekdays. She can usually be found warming up her school bus around 7 a.m. She is Carroll Community School District bus driver for the Mt. Carmel to Lidderdale route. She picks up students at Lidderdale and delivers them to the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School in Mt. Carmel. Every afternoon she returns the children to Lidderdale. The petite Mrs. Pillow does not fit the normal image of a burly, stern bus driver. However, she is a veteran kiddie chauffeur. She has driven a bus for three different school districts. She was a "little leary" of bus driving when she first started a route while living in Paducah, Ky. In the Paducah district there were 25 women driving the buses and only three men, she recalled. After driving her bus route, she is ready to begin her day as director of the Happy Times 'Day Care Center and Pre-school. She has been the head of the center since she and her husband, the Rev. Paul L. Pillow and family moved to Carroll in February, 1975. Rev. Pillow is paster of the Assembly of God Church, located north on U.S. 71. . As a pastor's wife, she has taught vacation Bible school and Sunday school, but this is her first endeavor at directing a day care center and pre-school; She has charge of purchasing equipment for the non-sectarian center and pre-school. She also has charge of the bookkeeping, the Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, April 12, 1976 state grant paperwork and the federal government program for reimbursing the center for food costs, and many other related duties. Her desk at the non-profit center is in the main activity room. "I'm right out here because I enjoy being with the children," she said. "If they have a question, they are welcome to come and ask me," she said. "If one of the children needs a shoestring tied or loses a paper, they come and ask me." she said as one pre-schooler asked her to help him find a peach crayon. Children age two to five attend the Monday through Friday center. After morning kindergarten classes are dismissed older children attend the afternoon sessions. During the summer children up to age 10 may attend the school. Because the school is non-profit, it has the benefit of having the Heartland Area Education Agency serving it. "We have been able to use the agency's speech clinicians, psychologists, and psychiatrists to aid the teachers with children who have problems, she explained. Although Mrs. Pillow's children are older, she said she did not have to make a big adjustment being around small children most of the day. After teaching Sunday school for many years, she said she was used to being with the younger set. The Pillows have three children age 17, 15 and 14. Between all her many activities. Mrs. Pillow says she finds it hard to relax. "I don't have much extra time," she said. During her spare moments she relaxes by reading. On top of all her other duties, she has even had to "pinch hit as the cook of the center." The center serves Handicapped Pupils Eager to Learn By Susannc Burks ALBUQUERQUE. N.M. (AP) — Nineteen-year-old Donna Jean Nodinc is handicapped and has never been to school — but she's bright and "eager to learn."- Kindergartener Mark Abeyta is confined at home to recover from rheumatic fever, and Paul Lapicrre. a sixth grader, has been hospitalized for weeks with fractures received in a football game. Suzy Mound, a high school sophomore, faces a six-week stay at home to recover from a stubborn, extended illness. And Mitzie Morrato. a senior, partially paralyzed after a gymnastics accident, still needs minimal help at home to graduate. All are students of Kathryn Peloquin in Albuquerque Public Schools' homebound program, which enables youngsters to continue their education even while incapacitated. Mrs. Peloquin, one of 13 teachers in the program, also teaches a third grader with emotional problems, a 10th grader with mononucleosis and an eighth grader on chemotherapy. Together they're representative of the people and situations with which homebound — this year renamed "home and hospital" — teaching deals: school youngsters of all grades in circumstances ranging from the mundane to the tragic, in settings ranging from the well-to-do to the poverty-stricken to the sterility of hospital rooms. Mrs. Peloquin said she had had students who graduated directly from the program and several students who later died. "Even when they're terminal, we take them. It means a lot to these students," she said. Regardless of how serious the circumstances may be, the objective is education and Mrs. Peloquin, though kind, is ; firm and all business with the students. -Staff Photo Mrs. Paul Pillow two lunches and a hot meal daily to the children. Mrs. Pillow says she enjoys cooking. These are two recipes she has fixed for the children and are ones they especially enjoy, she said. Quick Dessert 1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding 1 No. 2 can crushed pineapple 1 Qt. Cool Whip Sprinkle pudding over crushed pineapple and add softened whipped cream. Stir until well mixed. Marshmallows. nut meats or bananas may be added. Gaunter Talk By Jewel Tooley Easter traditionally celebrates the rebirth of faith for Christians and also the rebirth of nature in its glory of greenery and color. It's a time for dinner gatherings of'friends and families, fashion parades, egg hunts and the giving of decorated eggs and candy bunnies in pretty baskets. The foods and customs surrounding the Easter celebration come from many sou'rces. Rabbits play a big part in the celebration in North America. Actually, it is the rabbit's relative — the hare — that should be the true symbol because the hare is a symbol for the moon and the date for Easter depends upon the^>hase of the moon. Lamb is the traditional Easter dinner feature for many people; however, ham also is a favorite throughout the country. Ham on Easter Day was a custom in early England, so its popularity today may stem from the influence of English settlers. ! When a modern smoked ham is the star of the Easter dinner menu, the hostess can relax, knowing that the meal , is well in hand. Boneless and i fully-cooked, ham requires ! little attention. It can be fancied-up easily by glazing or garnishing with fruits or sprigs of parsley. Table companions might Include white or sweet potatoes — baked, scalloped or glazed — sharing the oven with the ham; fresh or frozen asparagus, and rolls from the refrigerator or freezer. Add a spectacular dessert for the .final touch.

Reg. 77« Helpful Definitions of the Heart Terms 792-9394" By Gaynor Maddox (NBA Writer) Recently in Atlanta, Georgia, the National Dairy Council presented a dictionary of terms in nutrition, diet and heart disease. Here is the dictionary in part. Many of the words are becoming daily more familiar in this time of increasing deaths from heart attack. Angina Pectoris — a sudden vice-like pain in the chest, caused by insufficient oxygenation of the heart muscle.. It is often associated with emotional stress or undue physical effort. The pain acts like a "safety valve," stopping the strain or effort. •Anoxia — literally, no oxygen. This condition most frequently, occurs when the blood supply to a part of the body is completely cut off. This results in the death of the affected tissue. For example, a specific area of the heart muscle may die when the blood supply (and hence the oxygen supply) has been blocked, as by a clot in the artery supplying the area. Arteriosclerosis — loss of elasticity in the arteries, a process which occurs as aging proceeds. Cardiac — pertaining to the heart. Cerebral Vascular Disease — disease of the blood vessels leading to the brain. Blockage of cerebral arteries is called a stroke. Cholesterol <— a steroid, present in all animal fats and oils, blood, bile, nerves and all cells of the body. It can be made in the body or obtained from the diet. It is probably a starting material for the synthesis of bile compounds, vitamin D and some hormones. It is also important in the transport of fatty acids. Coronary Artery — there are two small coronary arteries which supply blood to the heart muscle. They run from the root of the aorta over the surf ace of the heart. Coronary Thrombosis — presence of a blood clot or thrombus in the coronary artery. Essential Fatty Acids — three fatty acids are "essential," i.e. the body . cannot make them. They are linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and arachidonic acid, all polyunsaturated. The body can convert linoleic acid into arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid is essential for growth and certain other functions in infants. Fibrillation — uncoordinated contractions of the heart muscle occurring when the individual muscle fibers take up independent irregular contractions. Heart Attack — a sudden damage to the heart muscle, a result of insufficient blood reaching the heart. Hypertension — abnormally high blood pressure. Myocardial Infarction — damage to the heart muscle which may be partial or total. Plasma — the fluid part of circulating blood as distinguished from serum. Risk Factor — an inherent or environmental factor which is associated with increased incidence or coronary heart disease, but is not necessarily a cause. Serum — fluid part of coagulated blood. Thrombosis — formation of a blood clot or thrombus within the vessels. heart or blood PLANTERS DRY ROASTED F&F COUGH LOZENGES DIRECT AID HAND LOTION SKIN BRACER AFTER SHAVE PEANUTS Reg.
