Name Fits Hobby of Collecting Bells AUBURN — When your name Is Mrs. John Clapper, and you have a good sense of humor, what would be a more natural ihobby than collecting and studying bells? (Clappers make the bells ring.) "I started studying bells and collecting a few because of the name," Mrs. Clapper said. "It was amusing, and my collection just grew." Friends and family bring her bells from their travels. A granddaughter, visiting in Texas, brought Mrs. Clapper a ceramic bell, and just this summer, another granddaughter, visiting in the West, brought back a twin for the first ceramic belli. These bells hang in the entrance way to her kitchen. Other bedls decorate living room walls and her bookcase "galleries. M Her intereit in belli led to a memorable talk on bells at the Carroll Toastmistress Club. Toastmiatress Club is another interest of Mrs. Clapper's, not because of any connection with her name, but because "it helps you to learn to express yourself, and learn how to accept people and develop a better understanding of people with interests different from your own." Mrs. C 1 a p p e r is currently serving a six-month term as president of the Carroll club. Her main goal as president has been to interest more women in Toastmistress and to increase the club's membership. "Toastmistress," she explained, "is not a social or civic-working club. It is interested in self-improvement; to help the individual take a better part in other activities she is personally interested in." Some women are hesitant about becoming interested in Toastmistress because they feel they must be highly educated to participate, Mrs. Clapper commented. "But this is mot true. All levels of education are represented in the Carroll Toastmistress Club." The important thing, she said, is to attend a meeting with the feeling thait you can accept constructive criticism. "We all need to laugh at ourselves once in awhile."

Mrs. Clapper is beginning her fourth year as a Cadette Troop Girl Scout leader and is a member of the Lakota Council Board . She enjoys working with the girls, and a special part of the basemenit in the Clappers' new home in Auburn is set aside for use by the girls for cooking. The troop normally meets in the Auburn school. The Clappers have been living in their new home a little over two years. When they decided to move to town from their farm (Mr. Clapper is a retired farmer), they purchased an old home and planned to remodel it. "But the more work we did on it, the more things we found wrong with it," Mrs. Clapper laughed, "so we tore it down and started over using the plans we had for the remodeling." Their home features many built-in cabinets for a cup and saucer collection, bhe bells, and a utility wall, all finished in a fruitwood stain by Mrs. Clapper. With only one of their eight children living at home all year, one might think the Clapper house would seem a little empty. "Not so," said Mrs. Clapper, "with 28 grandchildren, we always have someone here." The oldest Clapper child, Nan, is a director and instructor at the School of Anesthesis, Veteran's Hospital, Des Moines, and her daughter is a surgical nurse at Iowa Methodist Hospital. Mrs. Kenneth Dirks (Sherry) of Breda supervises the McCrary-Rost Clinic at Lake City, and Mrs. Kenneth Reicks (Kay) of Mansion, is a liab worker there. The other Clapper children are Mrs. Ed Bachman (Joleen) of Auburn; Neil, a senior at Iowa State University at Ames; Mrs. Don Dernier (Peggy) of Carroll; Jim, a student a>t Parsons College in Fairfax; and Chuck, a s e n i o r at Lake View-Auburn High School. Mrs. Clapper likes to cook. She said, "I've ihad a lot of practice with my family and the grandchildren." Her meat loaf recipe is a special favorite. The secret of it, she says, is the tomato soup. This recipe is popular with her friends, and many other organizations have used it, and line variations, for group dinners. She has also given a favorite quick trick and a recipe for homemade French dressing.

Launch Family Planning Service for Iowa Women (By Dnil.v Trrsi Association) IOWA CITY - A comprehensive family planning service for low-income women has been launched in Towa. Now in opera! ion in Black Hawk. Johnson. Linn, and Scott Counties, the service is expected to become a model for similar programs throughout Iowa. The program is an expansion of prenatal, postpartum, and family planning clinics which have been conducted for several years in each of the counties. The clinics are held at Allen Memorial Hospital in Waterloo, the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City, St. Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids, and the visiting Nurse Association Building in Davenport. The clinics have been staffed and directed by The University of Iowa Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Division of Maternal and Child Health of the State De- parfment of Health, with aid from community physicians and hospital staffs. Now. with a grant of $180,000 from the National Council for Family Planning Service, the family planning phase of the clinics is being expanded and more emphasis is being placed on family planning as a primary health measure. With the increased emphasis on family planning, project staff members hope to improve maternal and child health and to help parents space their children to fit the family's economic, social, and emotional situation. They also hope to find decreases in illegitimate births, in maternal and infant deaths and illness, in the number of births in large families, and in premature births when an extensive evaluation of the project is done at the end of the first year. The four counties ehostn for the model family planning project this year were selected because they are arras of "high risk" for maternal and child health. An estimated 9,000 women in the counties have need for subsidized family planning services. The program is open to all low income women or others who, for reasons beyond their control, cannot obtain comparable services. Referral to the clinic can come from community agencies or from an individual's own application. There is no requirement for legal residence, except the woman must reside in the project area.
