By THARON HORNBERGER Berea Boosters During the past summer one of the leaders of Berea Boosters 4- H Club learned how much she was appreciated by members and their families. Mrs. Kenneth Cunningham spent several days in the hospital and then quite a while at home recuperating from her operation. "A time like this," said Mrs Cunningham, "is when you realize who your friends are." Mrs. Cunningham received cards and visits from many of her club members and former members. The club sent her a potted plant which is blooming beautifully in her home today. Many people gave gifts of food and other useful items, many of which had been mode by 4-H'ers. The club responsibilities were farily well divided among junior leaders while Mrs. Cunningham was inactive. Leon Sobba made meeting arrangements, and Mrs. Raymond Wagner and Albert Dunbar helped prepare Club Day entries. Everyone pitched in at fair time so the event could go as smoothly as possible. Each member gave up some of his own activities to help his leader get things done, thereby show- WANTADS CH 2-4700 Public Sale As we have sold our farm, will sell at public auction at the farm, located 4^ miles north, one and three- fourths west of Richmond, Kans., or iy 2 miles south and three-fourths west of Princeton, Kansas, on Thursday.

Last summer Tharon Hornberger drove her car to help make egg deliveries and carry on the business This winter, on vacation from College, Judy McClure made a beautiful brown wool suit for her leader. In November, Judy attended National 4-H Club Congress as Kansas clothing champion, and she felt making the suit for Mrs. Cunningham was one way she could say "thank you" that would have a lasting meaning. Mrs. Cunningham commented: "The rewarding part of being a 4-H leader is others showing their appreciation in even the smallest, actions, and the satisfaction in the realization that you've helped others more fully to achieve their goals." Recreation A Vital Phase Of 4-H By JUDY HAMILTON Greenwood Rockets Recreation is one thing we have very little trouble planning for the members of our Greenwood Rockets 4-H club. When the motion to adjourn is made and the club is dismissed for recreation, we know what the rest of the evening will bring. Our recreation leader shouts: "Everyone get a partner," and, at the same time, the record player starts playing. It's do-si-do and away we go. Square dancing is lively, everyone can take part. It teaches good sportsmanship and is good practice for our personal development project. Dancing after our monthly meetings was so popular the club members voted to have a square dance party once a month. This doesn't stop here. We are always planning ahead for the County Club Days, planning to have a set or two ready to compete with the other clubs. . The girls always are thinking about and making plans about what they will wear, and they always ccme up with something real pretty. Our mothers need a big hand here because after the plans are made, they take over, It sounds as though dancing is all we do, but really it isn't. We always find time during the winter to have two or three skating partys and this we love. We are all allowed to invite Table Wichita University Bill TOPEKA (AP) - The House Ways and Means Committee has tabled the controversial Wichita University bill until Monday. The action, designed to give the House Assessment and Taxation Committee time to work out a financing measure, climaxed an afternoon of heated debate Tuesday. Estimates are it would require $2.8 million in state funds for operation of the school at its present level the first year. Proponents suggested a sales tax increase or a severance tax on oil and gas as possible sources of revenue. DO SI-DO TIME AFTER BUSINESS - Members of Greenwood Rockets Chib end business meeting with square dancing. In action are (front row, from left) Judy Hamilton, Gerald Shep- hard, Cathy Flager and Donnie Hamilton, and (back row, from left) Diana Slankard, Jim Hogue, Sandra Church and Joe Reed. one guest. This makes a nice crowd and gives us a chance to meet friends of our members. Many of our parents like to skate, and we always welcome them because they are pretty swell people. Then comes summer. Swimming fills the party dates. One of the highlights of our summer fun is the family picnic. We start this day with Sunday School and church, then off to Forest Park in Ottawa. The first to arrive brings out the baseball and bat. As the members arrive, the game gets into full swing; then it is a problem to get them to eat, but in due time lunch is WATER HAULING GORDON PAUL CH 2-5425 24 Hour Service HUBBARD LUMBER and BILL DING Congratulate 4-H Members and Leaders We at HUBBARD LUMBER, are proud ol the growing interest in the 4-H in our community.
