tt-AI|MM««M)M»Mtt THURSDAY, JULY V, IMf Heritage Apartments 'INK In my VEINS' been in Oaiy* tod visiting with her pafente. A Th« OtM ftyteff •?••»» Hit weekend at Okoboji. Mfs. Taylor spent a day UM week at Lake Mills with her fcttter •y MARIAN INMAN Recently relatives and friends at Friendship Haven in Fort Dodge have sent me a copy of the summer issue or the Friendship Haven, 'Reporter 1 . This is most interesting copy of this very special place of retirement. The invisible benefits of Friendship Haven »r« compiled in an article by Mrs. Cecil Semens. The visible side by the executive director, Mr. Clarence TompMmi and an •>• pecially Informative article on financial health by Robert D. Blue. Pictures and poems and stories of hobbiet and mos e and friendship tell the story of the wonderful place thaf Is Friendship Haven. Mrs. Seman's story of the invisible side takes into account the physical and spiritual surroundings of the home. The good food and the food service, the freedom from worry and frustration of trying to do the physical things age helps make one incapable of, to have time to involve oneself in the cultural and service projects of the home, church and community. The privilege of sharing Bible study and the entertainment, book reviews, movies, concerts, lectures, community sings and the participation in fun night. The home has the happy combination of privacy and companionship in whatever proportion one may wish. Being treated as persons of dignity and integrity. All this brings good cheer and sweet fellowship and brings warmth to the hearts of the cititens of his haven of a home. The visible side of the sheet embraces the good food, the health services, the freedom from financial worries, the pressure of work when one is not able and the circle of friends to dispel the lonely hours. In Mr. Blue's article on financial health he stresses the need for educational programs to assist retired persons In maintaining financial health, in making the most of their pensions and their savings during their retirement years. He gives the warning to beware the "get rich quick boys" and door to door salesmen with their plausible stories of health plans. That we had best check with reliable persons before we part with our cash or get involved in a so called magic scheme. If you have never visited Friendship Haven you must do so. They will be happy to show you about I know, and you will see the outgoing spirit of sharing that prevades the haven. There is the story of the prayer room and the comfort it brings to slip away a moment from the day's cares to quietly ask God for strength and courage to carry on.

Upon completion of all requirements, any reader who is IB or older may obtain five English elective credits towerd high school graduation from the Los Angeles City School System. Registration forms will be printed with lesson 1 on July 9 and must be postmarked not later than July 18. You would be amaied at the interest this has created. The conductor of the course is an experienced Los Angeles teacher, who also spent many years as a newspaper editor and reporter, free lance writer, advertising and publicity man. He has been selected to conduct this pilot project because of his experience in both the fields of journalism and education. The titles of the courses sound so interesting especially the one, "Falling in l.ove with Words." I mean to take the course on my own without registration as I am not a native.

It's not the things that can be bought that are life's richest treasure, It's just the little "heart gifts" that money cannot measure . . . A cheerful smile, a friendly word, a sympathetic nod And priceless little treasures from the storehouse of our God . . . They are the things that can't be bought with silver or gold, For thoughtfulness and kindness and love are never sold . . . They are the priceless things in life for which no one can pay, And the given finds rich recompense in giving them away. —Helen Steiner Rice Sterling went to Earlville, 111,, to visit his sister, Mrs. Roy Yairnell and DoKalb to visit with his brother Rex Sterling.
