Six clubs are having this lesson, two are having ca'ke making, anc one will have a;.les30n In the uses of canned products. The one-dish meals' lesson seem- eld especially popular because man women are doing'inOre outside work than they have been doing and feel the ne'co" of speeding up the work of food preparation. The dish to be prepared will be a meat and .vegetable dish, that can be baked a long t i m e ' i n a meduim oven, so requires little watching. Mrs. Win.- S.

The pretty dining table was centered with a potted lily plant Mrs. Frank Wimbcrly poured ·.he Coffee. Following the social hour, Mrs. Cove'y Baker gave the devotional, and Mrs. E. T. Johns presided over a short business .meeting. The program was given by Miss Alma Sweet, who talked on, and exhibited, 'her .interesting collection ' of buttons. Attractively mounted and carefully classified, the collection, including unusual and rare specimens, proved a fascinating subject. Guesta at the meeting were Miss Lottie Sweet, Mrs. W. W. Wim- bcrly of El Paso; and'Mrs. Clyde Smith. Former L.C. 'Woman Sends Music Award Mrs. Hugh L.

GORDON* WHITE Summer was almost over, most of the orioles had become restless and gone to the mountains as they do before the fall migration. Pete, too, was getting restless and, like a youngster with nothing to do and no playmates, was into everything. Pete Empties Ashtrays If an ash tray was not emptied as soon as it hfid been used, Pete would attend to it. And what a help that was! First, sitting on the edge of the tray, he would drop all the cigaret stubs to the floor, then hop down and pick them to pieces. There was a wall basket for flowers hanging above the breakfast table, and Pete had started a collection in it--in fact, he started several collections. Every now and then when the basket was emptied, we would find hairpins, but tons, dried cherries and figs, bread crusts, rose petals and little scraps of cloth. As soon as the basket was cleaned out and hung up again, he started another collection. Also Collects Hair He had one habit that was quite annoying, and very embarrassing when guests were the victims of his pranks. There are three doors that connect the kitchen, bedroom, hallway and living room in our house. This makes a kind of circle that he used for flying round and round. And any time he found someone standing or walking in the line of his flight, he would light just long enough to grab twu hands--or rather feet -- f u l l of hair, and continue on his flight, pulling hair as he flew. Yon can imagine what that did to a nice hair-do. More Restless After Kishing Home from the fishing trip Pete seemed more restless t h a n over, and for the first time, anxious to get. He had hud a real taste of freedom and liked it. The hours spent in the willows fit the lake, and. t h e , p l e a s a n t visit with the little Ken oriole were a mere foretaste of the long, lazy days he was to enjoy in .southern Mexico during the winter. We could have k»ft him at the lake, with the little hen bird to keep him company and to fly fiouth with him. but we felf that he would be more likely to return to us in spring if he started his trip from home. Few Orioles to Visit The only orioles left in our trees were young ones that remain in the valley when.their parents go to the mountains in August, and we wanted Pete to start his long journey south with them. Late in the afternoon of Sept. 8, I walked out the back door with Pete on my shoulder and watched him fly up into a tree For a while he flitted about from one tree to another, · answering when we called, gradually going- up higher and higher up into the big cottonwood tree. When the sun had set and it began growing dark we stood under the big old tree and said, "good night, Pete," and he answered with a steeply "teet-teet-teet; an hour PARTY LINE Mr. and Mrs. Seth Acres and son Larry, and Mr. and Mrs. W.

Soon he flew into a locust tree and called again. And for a while we called back and forth -AS he moved from tree to tree, always WSCS Holds Program Meeting Mrs. C.

Finally the tiny black speck that was Pete faded into the sky, and he was gone. noise that might tell us that Pete wanted to come to us, and finally went to bed with a little silent prayer for his. safety. Lying awake for a long time, we talked of the fun and pleasure our little feathered friend had brought into our home during the past summer, and were almost sorry we had released him. There were so many things that would remind us of Pete: The little holes in the curtains, a soft yellow feather under a chair, bits of bread and dried fruit in the basket, the Jittlo dishes that had held his :~ood. Whenever the sewing machine was opened it would be a reminder df Pete. How we would miss the little fellow! How still the house would seem without his cherry call ringing through the rooms. We felt as if we were losing a very dear friend, whom we might never .see ngain. Then He Says Goodbye Bright and early the next morn- I --.'
