Mason City women will again have an opportunity to do something for the soldiers of the United States army who are stationed on foreign duty in making the Christmas bags under the direction of the American Red Cross. The American Legion auxiliary has for the past 10 years made 27 of the bags and the quota of 40 this year will be completed with 13 bags made by the Harmony guild of the Congregational church. The bags contain toilet articles and useful small gifts specified by the National Red Cross. They are wrapped individually and must be in San Francisco by Sept. 1 to be mailed out to the various posts. Mason City's bags have usually been sent to the soldiers on the island of Guam. Last year 15,000 of the bags were distributed altogether. One thank-you note received here the past year reads, "I received your presents and it sure made me feel good for I have no-one to send me gifts--no parents., no relatives. When a person is by himself, hardly anyone knows that he lives except the Red Cross. I thank you for your lovely Christmas gift." Ten bedside bags and six pairs of knitted socks made locally have been received at the Veterans hospital at Musltogee. Okla., according to word received by Mrs. J. B. Blythe, chairman of volunteer service in Alason City. This is one phase of the work which is being done under the supervision of the Red Cross in behalf of the ex-serv ice men.

But for some reason she did not read the books, nor find the discus sions of interest, and seemed to be growing up with no knowledge of the world's best thought. Finally her parents started a library for her. If they wanted her to read a book they bought it for her, until gradually quite a collection of inexpensive classics filled the shelves in her room. Owning the books seemed to make a difference. Sophie began to read and to take pride in her collection, even recommending and lending special favorites to her school and playmates. It is often posible to stimulate a taste for reading in this way. Pride of ownership awakens an interest in one's possessions. In this day of cheap editions, it is possible to build up a considerable library at very little expense, and in so doing, one can always be sure of the lasting value of the gift. In time these books will be the nucleus of the child's own choice of books to live with. If the father has any talent for carpentry a. set of shelves with space fo'r additional stock will be an added incentive to the collecting instinct. The simplest kind of shelves will do. Often they can be built about a steam heater in a comer otherwise useless for furniture. In one household all available ENDLESS STAIRS. This quilt block is a great favorite with quilt historians, as well as all quilt makers. The simplicity ot the pattern and the ease with which it may be pieced do much for its popularity. The various steps, each one of different colored prints, create a design of everlasting appeal The inherent quaintness of the com pleted block speaks of the antiquitj if the original design. This pattern is from Quilt Book No. 22 which contains six other pat :erns. For your copy send 10 cents m stamps or coin to Quilt depart ment Mason City Globe-Gazette 200 Fifth avenue, New York. N. Y.
