She's Jessie Shearer Camp, a resident of Friendship Haven at Fort Dodge, and a fellow writer. Recently she wrote, "I'have always'been connected with the law, as my husband was a lawyer in Crestqn and I was a legal secretary until I ,weht into court reporting, which occupation I followed for a number of years. I did so enjoy the trials of cases in court, and the association with lawyers and judges. Every case brings out different points of law and : ,t{ieir idnterpretation,/, it; seems; and it • was most interesting to me to see how cases are built up, with material evidence retained, the immaterial rejected on valid objections by opposing counsel." * . * * MRS. CAMP SAID EVERY- thing at Friendship Haven is lovely now; The 35 acres of grounds are beautiful and so many flowers everywhere that it is like living in a park. She is an avid gardener and writes, "The lady.who had the plot next to me ,la$t year concluded to take another flower bed this year,; so I annexed the one she .had whijch I now call my 'north 40' and my original plot I refer to as my 'south 40'." She raises onions and tomatoes and has one plot all flowers. Mrs. Camp sent me zi booklet compiled by members of Friendshio Haven writers groups. The stuff is really good and the writers exhibit discerning eyes and a lot of good humor, I especially enjoyed one of Mrs. Camp's contributions: GARDENING A philoshper of old, Wise among men, Said: A task well done Needn't be done again.
