Main, bathes a rubber baby doll in a Red Cross class for expectant mothers are Mrs. Dennis Gish, 315 E. 9th (from left), Mrs. Neil Garrett, RFD 2, Wellsvillc; and Mrs. Pat Jefferson, 409'/ 2 E. 9th. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith) Preparing For The New Baby Several young women have completed a series of six sessions |>n a Red Cross class planned to Ijielp prepare them for one of SUie greatest experiences in their lives — motherhood. /The free class for expectant Jnothers has been taught at Ran- porn Memorial Hospital by Mrs. Aria- .Lickteig, of the county health office. Both Mrs. Lickteig 8 and Mrs. Rosalie Osburn, conn- .health nurse, took a week's Bourse in Topeka to enable them teach the class "I am glad to get authentic iformation about a lot of questions which come ups," says one klass member. "So many people told me so many conflicting things Ihat I was all confused." I i Each class member is expecting her first baby. However, the tlass is not limited to this group. It is open to grandmothers, ba- S- by sitters, or just about anyone who has a special interest in the subject. Sessions averaged about eight in attendance. One mother gave birth to her baby after attending two sessions. The others stated with some amusement that no doubt the uncomplicated, fast delivery was due to her attendance at the classes. There might be more truth than fiction in the statement. The first lesson, "Before the Baby Comes," deals mainly with anatomy and the second is on the mother's nutritional needs and the layette, including supplies for both mother and babe. Class members took home diet sheets and checked foods in one day's meals with the recommended list. All admitted their food intake fell a bit short of the listed types of foods. "I particularly liked the lesson on layettes," one class member said. Through courtesy of several Ottawa stores, Mrs. Lickteig displayed various articles of baby clothing. Also on hand was a collection of supplies furnished by the Red Cross including a basket on legs, bottles and nipples, waterproof pads, different kinds of baby shirts, and many other supplies. The third lesson, "The Baby is Born," includes information on labor and delivery, when to call the doctor, and when to go to the hospital. Lessons Four and Five are "The New Baby," and "Daily Care of the New Baby." The final lesson, "The Baby's First Year," includes information on development, childhood diseases, immunizations and some on accidents. "The films we saw during the class sessions helped me," a third member states. "It means a lot when you see illustrations of the things you hear." Members had regular reading assignments. Used as class texts were "Prenatal Care," and "Infant," both State Board of Health publications, also, "A Healthy Personality for Your Child." Class members learned of the emotional changes they will undergo as well as the physical changes. Those completing the course received certificates. Husbands were not left out. They accompanied their wives on a tour of the labor and delivery rooms and had a peak through the nursery windows. "I'll keep in touch with the women by visiting them after their babies arrive to see how they are getting along," Mrs. Lickteig says. "We plan to start another class in April," :; RECEIVES CAP — Helen «Lederer, daughter of Mr. and "Mrs. John Lederer, Pomona, -recently received her cap from £Stormont-Vail School of Nursing £in a ceremony at MacVicar JChapel, Washburn University. Set World Day Of Prayer Observance For March 1 The local observance of the World Day of Prayer will be in First Methodist Church Friday at 2 p.m., sponsored by the local Council of United Church Women, headed by Mrs. Henry Alban. Rev. Roy Armstrong will be the speaker and others will participate in special music and other program numbers- The service is open to all. Planners point out that prayer will be the invisible space ship which will orbit the world on this 77th anniversary of the World Day of Prayer with hundreds of thousands of services around the world. The observance is not just a program. It is planned as an active experience of prayer, to give us a sense of unity with the world-wide church •>* £ MY ALL YOUR BILLS and a response to this in informed giving. "More Than Conquerors," is the theme of the 1963 service, inspired by the Apostle Paul's encouraging words to the Romans that neither tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, or peril nor sword can separate from the love of Christ for, "in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." Foe many of the Christian people around the world who will participate in the World Day of Prayer, these words are more than words, for as with the women of Korea who wrote the serv- ice, they have seen tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, peril and war. On March 1, the United States will be one of 150 areas in six continents in the world where some group will be gathering at some time during the entire 24 hours to girdle the world with prayers.
