She Knew The Value Of Our Spiritual Part By ROSS NELSON Franklin County 4-H members will observe 4-H at 7:30 p.m. Sunday May 5, at Ottawa Westminster United Presbyterian Church, 13th and Maple. There will be a tribute to Roberta Anderson who was killed in an auto-train accident last December during this service. The following item was written by Miss Anderson concerning 4- H Sunday: "The thing within us which generates dreams and ideals and which sets up values" in life is generally referred to as the spiritual part of us. The 4-H Club program encourages the development of the "spiritual" in its members, knowing that this is the thing that deepens and sweetens the quality of their lives and makes them good homemakers, good neighbors, good citizens, there are various things club members are encouraged to do which help develop the spiritual side of their lives. Always when we reach out the hand of helpfulness to a cause or to a neighbor, we experience spiritual growth. Likewise, when the 4-H leader stops in the midst of the field hike to have members listen to the tanager singing out his heart in the top of a tree, or to the bobolink bubbling over in song from the meadow, he is helping the spiritual within the members. In club camps and at club banquets when grace is sung together at mealtime, and in the Homemaking Authorities On HDU Week Program Highlighting the observance of Kansas Home Demonstration Week, April 26-May 4, are 23 meetings throughout the state. Franklin County home demon- station unit women attended a meeting at Topeka with women from Osage, Douglas and Shawnee Counties. The meetings, planned by county and district home economics agents in cooperation with district directors of the Kansas Home Demostratiqn Council, have become a tradition in Kansas with thousands of homemakers, members of home demonstration units and their guests attending. On the program at the meetings in Northeast Kansas was Dr. Marjorie Stith, head of the department of family and child development at Kansas State University, and Mrs. Winona Starkey, extension home furnishings specialist, KSU. Dr. Stith's topic is "Bringing Up Parents," and Mrs. Starkey discussed "Trend in Home Furnishings." Dr. Stith joined the K-State school of home economics staff in 1961 as director of the child development laboratory. She be- evening when leaders and members hold vesper services at the hilltop or in the valley — as the sun goes down — and shadows lengthen — and the silence deepens — something is put into their souls that we call the spiritual. Club members practice the spiritual in their club work, when they treat their animals with kindness, when they are considerate of wildlife and build bird houses, put up feeding boards and furnish our feathered friends and the squirrels with food in winter and stormy weather. They feel kinship with their Creator when they lay out nature trails, when they plant their gardens and dig in the brown earth, cover the seed in the furrow and wait for the sun to warm the soil and the rains to moisten it and new life to appear. The 4-H leader who stops and points out the beauty of the wayside flower, the orchard in bloom, and the setting sun is re- MRS. WINONA came head of the department in July, 1962. Since coming to Kansas, Dr. Stith has been doing special work with parents who have handicapped children and last summer organized and coordinated a day care center at Holcomb for young children of migrant workers. Buildings Destroyed *> By Fire WELLSVILLE - A vacant farm house northwest of Wellsville and a barn on a vacant farm south of Wellsville were destroyed by fire Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The farm house was located about a mile north of the K33- K68 junction. The blazing structure was noticed about 11:30 Tuesday night by Dale Whiteford, Wellsville, as he was returning home from Ottawa. Whiteford made several attempts to find help and he and two men tried to put the fire under control without success. The vacant house was owned by Roy Lawson who lives in the Black Jack area northwest of Wellsville. Lawson learned of the fire about noon yesterday. The barn was located on the Baumann estate south of the Walnut Creek Cemetery south of WeUsvUle. Mrs. Jay DeGarmo who lives nearby said she noticed the fire about 1:30 Wednesday morning. She said the building appeared to be engulfed in flames at the time. The cause of the fires wasn't determined. There was insur ance on both buildings.

When members stand in salute as the Stars and Stripes are raised to the morning winds and the flag unfolds in the sunlight, something spiritual is called into being within them. Four-H leaders are developing the spiritual in club members when they put into their minds the need of fair play in games, contests, or exhibits, and the virtues of smiling in defeat and in wishing the winner well. The spiritual in members is also quickened when the clubs sing their many fine songs and the old hymns that have come down through the centuries.
