Librarian BY CAROL HIGGINS In the old brick library in the center of Estherville, are four librarians, all with a readiness to go out of their way to be of service. Head librarian in this storybook world is Mrs. Christine Anderson with a storybook background of her own. She met her husband during a student drama production in her senior year at the University of Massachusetts. He was a stage manager and she was the princess of Puss-in-Boots. Soon after, the princess became Mrs. • William J. Anderson and after graduation they transferred to the University of Iowa for graduate study. But they still needed a little of the "Puss-in-Boots" ingenuity and gift for making things turn out well. Christine had never quite decided what her profession should be. In high school she had taken a Kuder Preference Test which told her she should be a librarian, but Christine was not convinced. She majored in English at the University of Massachusetts, and for part-time work, found a job at the university library. At the University of Iowa she found another part- time librarian job. But the time came for a decision on her career. "Young ladies with a B.A. in English are a dime a dozen," she said. "I hadn't had any training in journalism— I had started in library work— so when a friend said, 'Why don't you get a job as a librarian. . .' " The decision was made and she took study in library science and received her master's degree in that area. When the Estherville librarianship was offered her, it seemed exactly right, in spite of being an inconvenient distance from Iowa City where Bill was still hard at work studying for a Ph.D. In Estherville, the pert, little "Puss-in- Boots princess" with her quizzical grin has thrown herself into the job of helping the library grow as "a community information center." It is well-stocked— 33,000 books, she found—and a developing collection of records with folk music and rock, "I have always had a sort of an awe of libraries," she says and is anxious to operate it as a center for both young and old. Too many people think of it as something like the dentist, she feels, as "a place where you ought to come. But you only have to be mildly curious." She likes Estherville as a place where "you can walk in the street at night and where you don't have car pollution. And I really like the people I work with and work for." What doesn't she like? Both streets and avenues being called by number, is confusing, she finds. But it is a good place and she and Bill have bought their home and are here to stay. Bill is working on his dissertation this semester, she says, and will continue to spend much of his time in Iowa City in research and studio theatre work. The seven-league boots are still much needed between Estherville and Iowa City but "hopefully, he will be qualified for teaching at a junior college and will find a situation nearer by. And according to form, they will live happily ever after. Recycle Used Holiday Cards The holidays are over, but don't send your Christmas cards to the trash heap. "Recycle them," says Maridel Kumbier, extension specialist in applied art at Iowa State University. She offers some suggestions for putting old cards to new uses. Many cards have pictures which can be cut out carefully with fingernail scissors. The pictures can then be decoupaged on boards to make attractive wall decorations for next year. These might be made and given as gifts to friends and relatives during the year. The cut-out pictures can also be used as package decorations. Old Christmas cards can also be made into new gift tags. Pick out a pretty part of a card and fold in an appropriate place. Cut around the design, through both thicknesses. If you like, put a small hole at the top and insert a small cord or ribbon. Some of the greeting cards can be transformed into attractive, original valentines. A fine parchment rectangle, taken from the back or inside of an old Christmas card, can be decorated with heart shapes cut from gold or silver foil taken from other cards. Raised designs can be cut into thin strips and used as edging for large red hearts. The possibilities are endless, and children will enjoy creating their own designs. And what's to prevent a grown-up from making an original valentine for her spouse? THE L0CKH0RNS " POSTAL RATES HAVE GONE UP. WE'LL HAVE TO CUT POWN ON YOUR LETTERS TO YOUR MOTHER." © If You Have...

Clean as the Driven Snow By NANCY MEREDITH Family Environment Extension Specialist Iowa State University One of the nicest things about early January is that it's symbolic. There are twelve whole months of 1972 stretching ahead like clean, new snow. Our footsteps will soon be there, and we're determined to make a better path than we did last year — to avoid those missteps that we later regretted. We find ourselves not wanting to stumble into anger or impatience as easily as we did In the past. We wanttotake firm strides toward our goals — with the help of New Year's resolutions. The journey will be easier if we've made realistic resolutions. It's pretty hard to live up to generalizations like: "I'm, not going to lose my temper"; "I won't be grouchy with the secretary"; or "I promise to stop nagging." Those are such big orders we don't know where to begin! How much easier it is to keep a resolution that's related to a specific situation: "I'm not going to lose my temper when Billy spills his milk"; "I won't be grouchy with the secretary when the mail is late"; "I promise to stop nagging Fred when he leaves wet towels on the bathroom floor." Perhaps these are small vows — but they have a chance of success! They are milestones that can be reached; resolutions that can be kept. Later fn the year, when the first resolutions are easier to follow, other specifics can be added— more milestones to head toward. There's nothing magic about resolutions that says they can only be made on January 1. They can come In February, July, or even December. For the success of a resolution doesn't depend on the date on which it was made. ft It's realistic and if we really try to keep it we can use it to get back on course any month of the year.
