(Herald Photo) Cyclone Doins Make Plans For Next Year As This One Nears The End By MARGARET WILLIAMS and ANNE MACHIN Ottawa High students began their last six weeks of the school year Tuesday. The following day, grade cards were distributed to the anxious students. Thursday afternoon junior and senior high Kayettes took their fifth hour class time to listen to Wanda Mae Vinson, slate director of the organization. Miss Vinson talked to the group about the club's motto, "Laugh, Love and Lift." The state director also stressed the importance of being loving and appreciative to everyone with whom the girls may come in contact. After her talk, the club gave a donation to her scholarship fund for senior Kays ans Kayettes. Following the meeting, Miss Vinson met with the junior and senior high boards to discuss the years' work. Next years officers in the junior high club are Jane Wollen, president; Sarah Wood, vice president, Jewel Scott, treasurer, and Martha Hill, secretary. Assisting the 1963 senior high officers will be the following board members: Vicki Kelley and Dalene Waymire, co-program; Sue Reynolds, student council; Linda Showalter, recreation; Cheryl Campbell, pianist; Anne Geiss, song leader; Marcia Stevens, spe- By BERNICE 1IOLDEN WELLSVILLE — A pair of flags, the American and Christian, have been presented to the Wellsville Baptist Church as a memorial to Mrs. Therressa Wright by her children. The flags were in place recently for the beginning of revival services and were dedicated on Easter Sunday, April 14. The flags were made by Mrs. Linnie Tyler. They are the third pair she has made for the church. She has been church clerk for 10 or 11 years, and presently teaches the Phi Delta Sunday School Class. The Woman's Missionary Society purchased the material for the first pair of flags. Mrs. Tyler recalls they were made of Indian- head cloth costing less than $5. This pair of flags was given to the local Assembly of God Church later on when Mrs. Tyler made the second pair flags from silk material provided by Mrs. Arend Van Vliet. Checking the date she had placed on the back of the American flag, Mrs. Tyler noted the silk pair was made in April. 1956. Unfortunately the silk material did not stand up as well as the cotton cloth, she said. The blue background for the stars had turned purple, the red stripes were not as bright, and the white stripes were streaked. The white stars made of pelon (material used for interfacing) were good as new. Mrs. Tyler chose pelon for the stars as it stays white. For the third pair of flags, she had used sailcloth. The cost was about double that of the first pair. Both flags are 45-inches wide and nearly 70 inches long. The assembling of the American flag is not an easy task. She said four of the red and three of the white stripes are at the side of the blue field, and the other stripes are below. And just think of how tedious cial program; school service; Virginia Paul, Gwen Myers, it would be to place 50 stars on that field of blue, then repeat the process on the opposite side of the field with another 50 stars, getting them in the same position as the others. Mrs. Tyler solved the problem of getting the meven on both sides, beginning with the fifth flag she was making. At that time it occurred to her they would be even if she would put a patch of pelon on the opposite side of the field as she stitched on each star. She could then follow the outline of the stitching on the front to cut out the star on the back. Mrs. Tyler said she had found a picture of the flag in The Ottawa Herald, showing the stars distinctly. This helped her. Altogether she has made six American flags. She also has made a Rebekah Lodge flag for the local Rebekah Hall. She describes the Rebekah banner as pale green with pale pink emblems. She saw one in Orlando, Fla., and received permission to take i pattern from it. Mrs. Tyler said this was the only Rebekah flag she has ever seen, with the exception of the one she made. In our conversation with Mrs. Tyler, we learned she had once stopped to see the home of Betsy Ross in Pennsylvania. We suggest that if Betsy Ross were living in this day and age, she would probably be singling out Mrs. Tyler's home to visit.

Contrary to public opinion, Ot tawa is not being infiltrated by a large sort of mouse. The red "mouse" travelling Ottawa's streets is Bill Douglas' red car painted to resemble a kind of roaring mouse, complete with ears, found only in Grand Fenwick, the setting of the senior play. Going into its last week ol rehearsal, the play will be given April 26-27 at the Municipal Auditorium. Tickets can be obtainec from any cast or senior clasb member for one dollar. Also making the senior class realize the nearness of gradu ation was the arrival of gradu ation announcements and name cards. The endless line of eager ANNE seniors waited after school Thursday at the office until all the >ackages were distributed. Luck- ly, only a very few misses found 'Mr." in front of their names! So, with all this activity, OHS students are considering Easter vacation as far behind as Thanksgiving and Christmas. Governor On Oil Committee INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Gov. John Anderson of Kansas is among seven governors named to a committee on conservation of gas and oil. Gov. Matthew E. Welsh of Indiana announced the appointments Thursday as chairman of the Interstate Oil Compact Commission.
