Busy Maplewood Women Proud of Clubhouse By SONNY SANDERS Courier News Correspondent CABUTHERSVILLE — A project decided upon a year ago has led lo a dream-corne-true — the clubhouse for the Mapleview Extension Club of Pemiscot County. The building cost $850 — a third of what it would cost under ordinary circumstances — because the two dozen members of the organization and their husbands did all the work. It was at Kennett Park when the Mapleview club's annual picnic was in progress. Members decided in favor of the suggestion of Mrs. Loy Cox, president, to accept a building on Bert Richardson's farm at no charge. Richardson even took partitions out of the original four-room house, nine miles west of Hayti on Highway 84 and l'/ 2 miles south on a gravel stretch known as the Rice Road. Richardson said jt was for the club "to usa as long as they wish." Besides making some repairs, he furnished paint for the outside of the building. New Interiors At various times, the women, who are led by Mrs. Truman Hicks, current president, would meet to tear down old wallpaper, sweep the floors and clean the yard. Husbands were handy at weed cutting as the building had been vacant for about six months. With most of the building then comprising, an "L" shaped auditorium, the women put walnut paneling .on the walls and added sheet- rock to the kitchen walls. The house was re-wired and both porches were repaired. While club members furnished kitchen utensils and crystal, businesses contributed. Being of assistance and thereby being rewarded was the Mapleview 4-H Club which shares the building for its meetings. "All workers and no shirkers" is the club's motto, according to Mrs. Thelma H. Davidson, county home agent from Caruthersville. Club members from both Pemiscot and Dunklin counties lived up to their slogan by doing many things to finance the project. The women each donated 100 pounds of her husband's seed cotton, which was ginned into a bale and sold. They sold Christmas cards, had rummage sales, sold chances on quilts, took a school census and are now selling cook books.

By SONNY SANDERS Courier News Correspondent CARUTHERSVILLE — An unus- u&l type of journalistic effort in the form of an obituary appears in this month's issue of The Christian Visitor, mimeographed publication of First Christian Church of Caruthersville. The Rev. John L. Bennett, pastor ind editor of the bulletin, said that while attending Cincinnati Bible Seminary 10 years ago ,he ran across the funeral notice, which he says he's sure isn't copyrighted. The minister titled the article, "Mrs. Prayer Meeting Dies a Horrible Death." ' It read as follows: "Mrs. Prayer Meeting died recently at the First Neglected Church on Worldly Avenue. Born many years ago in the midst of great revivals, she was K strong, healthy child, fed largely on testimony and spiritual holiness, soon growing into worldwide prominence and was one of the most influential members of the famous Church family. -"For the past several years Sister Prayer Meeting has been failing in health, gradually wasting away until rendered helpless by stiffness of knees, coldness of purpose and will power. • "At last she was but a shadow of her former happy self. Her last whispered words were inquiries concerning; marts of trade and places of worldly amusements. Her older brother, Class Meeting, has been dead for many years. "Experts, including Dr. Words and Dr. Joiner, disagree as to the cause of her fatal illness, administering large doses of organization, socials, contests, drives, and religious education, but to no avail. of Federal income taxes. Cohen in 1951 was sentenced to five years and fined $10,000 for evading 5156,123 in taxes for 1946-48. He has accumulated 480 days credit for good behavior but unless the fine was .paid,he would have to take a pauper's oath or serve 30 days more. "A post-mortem showed « deficiency of spiritual food, coupled with lack of fasting, faith, heartfelt religion, shameless desertion and non-support as contributing causes or her death. Only a few- were present, at her last rites, sobbing over memories of her past beauty and power. "Carefully selected pallbearers were urged to bear her remains tenderly away, but, failed to appear. There were no flowers. Her favorite hymns, 'Amazing Grace' and 'Rock of Ages,' were not sung. Miss Ima Modern rendered 'Beautiful Isle of Somewhere,' but none had any idea where this fancied isle might be. The body rests in the beautiful cemetery of Bygone Glories, awaiting the summons from above. "In honor of her going, the church doors will be closed Wednesday nights save on the third 'Wednesday of each month when the Ladies' Pink Lemonade Society serves refreshments to members of the Men's Handball Team."
