Ponn- svlvania Ave. Ihe end of her own life of service al the age of 103. Mollie Ward Greist was a remarkable Hoosicr although her name is unfamiliar to most citizens of her native state and her funeral Sunday al Monlicel- lo was not u headline event. She had been preparing to die •for several years by .recording her years as a nurse, doctors wife and missionary and' by placing some . of her early Alaska possessions in museums. "Most people drop dead in homes or on streets hut there are a few thai have a life that hangs on like that of a turtle.; she wrote of herself in 19fi8. "I just don't feel 1 am ready to sil and roll my thumbs yet." Mrs. Griest described herself in an interview with this reporter several years ago as -a reluctant missionary." 'In 1917 she thought all the rest of when the demands for their healing skills were heavy in Monticello. But relucanlly and with tears, she joined her husband on his new- career as a Presbyterian medical "missionary lo the remote edges of Alaska north of (he Arctic Circle near the Arctic Ocean, first at Cape Prince of Wales and laler at Barrow, working to save lives against injuries and diseases Monticello never knew. H was a career that lasted 1" years and provided Mrs. Greist with'a variety, of experiences she preserved by writing them down before she lost her eyesight. Of the deaths of famed humorist Will and aviation pionce Post, she wrote. "This was the first plane crash with us and one of our family of Eskimo were nearby and saw it all.' The operating room at the the mangled bodies were sewed into human semblance before being sent back lo the United Slates. As they worked by flashlight. an Eskimo woman helping in the hospital asked Mrs. Greisl: "Why do so many the white people so sorry about Mr. Rogers? What did he do?" Mrs. Greist recorded her reply: ••Helen, he was a very good man: he loved everybody: he Wiped people: he wrote funny things in our newspapers all over the United States." To which she added her own comment later: "We. need another Will Rogers now to help this world out of trouble. In recalling the visit of Charles and Ann Lindbergh to the Barrow hospital-home of the Greists in 1929. she wrote hours. It was midnight when, they arrived." The Lindberghs stayed with the Greisis for three days, visiting Eskimo homes, walking out upon some icebergs and taking dogslcd rides on tundrn. -They attended' church on Sunday." Mrs. Greisl rcmem- •bered." "Mrs. Lindbergh' wore mv fur coat and he wore a fur- lined coat of Dr. Greist. Lindbergh spoke to the people in the, church Sunday evening. While in the hospital, Mrs. Lindbergh showed the Eskimo how to dance the Charleston. In her book "Nursing Under Ihe North Slar". Mrs. Greist included, other things she thought people might like to know from those early years. One is a pattern of a quilt Eskimo children gave her after she had substituted as a school teacher. She gave the quilt to Indiana University. Mrs Greist gave a collection of'Arctic eggs to Hanover and Earlham colleges and some of her furs, ivory, hunting gear, a expec.a- of serving it at the usual mwl time "It was a oTe dinner and jus. like any dinner than had waited for Society for what she thought would' be display in the State Museum.

Today, let's indulge in a few kicks! -Stand tall with your toes pointing forward and your hands on your hips. Kick forward-upward with your left leg as high as you can and keep your back erect. Lower leg with a stiff knee. Do the same Ihing with your right leg and continue "alternating left and right -Lie on your back on the floor with your arms resting on the floor at your sides. Bend your left knee up to your at)-.,. "domen and kick toward the ceiling. Lower leg to floor. Do the same with your right leg :and continue, alternating. Do this briskly. —Stand lacing a wall and place your hands on it. liend your left knee up to yrtur ab- domen and kick back Hard. Return left foot to the floor. Do the same with your right leg and continue, alternaling left and right. —Sit on the floor and lean back on your hands. Bend your left knee up to your abdomen, straighten the left leg and return it to Ihe floor. Bend your right knee as your left leg straightens. Do this briskly, one leg bending' as the other straightens. —Lie on the floor on your back with your arms resting (in the floor at your sides and your legs straight. Lift your left leg up with a stiff knee.,As you lower your left leg raise your right leg. One leg moves up as the other moves down:. These are easy motions but they will contour the leg* and tone the abdominal muscles. I urge you to "try- them with music;' They can be quite enjoyable if you do. By AILEEN CLAIRE NBA Food Editor Apple growers say this will be -a prime year for apples with fall crops high in quality and flavor.'So. it is time to make the most of your favorite apple and apple cider- recipes and to have fresh apples on hand for out-of-hand munching. Apples also add to the flavor and aroma-of a variety of meat and poultry dishes and Cornish hens stuffed with apples, rice, walnuts and- seasoned with apple cider make a relatively simple but attractive meal to serve family or friends, This recipe may be divided or multiplied to serve one or a dozen persons easily. By KAREN BLAKER, Ph. D. DEAR DR. BLAKER - I absolutely cannot get my ' children to pitch In with chores around the house. I ' come home from work ex' bausted and try to convince. '. them to help. They object, complain and even cry. Over 1 the years, to tell you the truth, ' 1 have found that it actually take less energy just to do everything myself. They are ' 10 and 12 years old. Shouldn't they be old enough to unders- ' tand since their father and I 1 were divorced, and I've had to ' co to work myself, it just isn't 1 like the good old days? Why do * they keep making my life so ' unbearable? DEAR READER - I iro- ' agine that,in the "good old . 1 days" you did all the : household work. Instead of : punishing yourself for the ' changed circumstances ' ; however, you need to ask ' yourself whether or not the "good old days" way was in fact the best approach for raising your children. 1 believe that when children adapt to doing certain household chores, they are preparing themselves lor the repetitive, sometimes boring, but necessary tasks of adulthood. Surely you wouldn t want them to turn out like a former patient of mine who never had to lake responsibilities at home. He grew up believing instead, in the "infinite variety of life's experiences." But he encountered severe / problems in his job as a , carpenter. While he loved car.', ving the first leg of a chair, he , could not bring himself .to finish the other three. It went against his grain, so to speak. If in the past you have been " able to influence your children " not to play with knives, or not ' to take rides with strangers, or not to cheat on exams, you ; CAN influence them to help you around the house, You can, if you really want help. It may be that you are more doubtful of your children's love since the divorce and need to continue the "old kinds of mothering tasks to- reassure yourself that you are still a lovable mother. You ask their help but they sense that vou are not serious. A solution: Hold a family meeting. Make a list of the chores. Divide them up. A matter-of-fact approach is the most helpful" Expect them to follow through faithfully and have certain consequences ready for the times they will test you, — as they most certainly will. The less ambivalent you are, the less struggle you will encounter from them. And believe it or not, you will be loved more : than before. A martyred mother clutters a household with guilt, pain and anger. Her anger is a major obstacle to freely exchanged love. Even if your children don't provide you with a spotless house (remember they are not yet adults), the change will have a cleansing • effect — emotionally. Good 'luck.
