By Jay Copeland, age 8 t019 Millwood Drive Members of the Central Kansas Flywheels make wholehog sausage. Rywheels plans events Central Kansas Flywheels has a fantastic museum being built at 1100 W. Diamond Drive. For the past five years, Central Kansas Flywheels has gathered in a lot of antique machinery, tractors, tools, and anything that will preserve the history of our area. Most every weekend a group of people has been working to get this museum open to the public. Last month, a group had fun making sausage for a big show in August. Wholehog sausage will be served as one of the evening meals. One of the winter projects being worked on was a second steam electric generator. One was running at our August 1984 show. This year two will be running, in the building, with the exhaust going out the north side of the building. A tractor pull in May will be one event for the museum, July will bring our threshing day, August has our 3-day Antique Tractor & Steam Engine Show. Food is served at all events to help those hungry stomachs that start growling because of all the interesting antiques to look at and watch. Some children's activities will be happening during each event through the year so children are welcome to come and learn about our past heritage also. Watch in the papers and around town for future dates of these events coming up at the museum of the Central Kansas Flywheels.

SaUna Pastor Larry & Ethel Knox Those Smiling Eyes (Claude Betterson) I walked down the hall and felt his smiling eyes, warm and wonderful were they. Day by day we shared a glance and sometimes a word or two, for that's the best he could do. Then one day to my surprise he was breathing on his own. Sitting there with a twinkle in his eyes waiting for me to arrive. "I feel wonderful," he said. "You look great," I replied, for he truly did. He smiled and said, "I lied." He talked ever so long, cheerful, loving and kind. Spoke of his mother, sister and all the greats. It was wonderful. I went home feeling elated. Today I strolled the halls looking for those smiling eyes. I searched and searched some more but to my surprise, those smiling eyes were here no more, God had called them home. I find time has passed and I search no more but often ache for those smiling eyes, those eyes I see no more.

History is a never-ending tale By LAURIE OSWALD Staff Writer When Joyce L. White, 510 State, compares studying history to "going around a wheel with many spokes," she speaks from experience. White, who has been a librarian, historiographer and archivist in Salina since 1979, said she became a librarian nearly 30 years ago in Philadelphia, where she was a librarian at the University of Pennsylvania. Her profession leads her through a maze of other interests — wherever she travels, she said. "I have been in the library world for 30 years or so. And I'm always prepared to be surprised. I've done a variety of projects in Salina, but I have not sought out any of these. The phone rings and the person on the line says 'so and so said I should call you...'," White said. She received her first phone call in the Salina area from Sister Evangeline Thomas, who asked White if she would help with a research project on a survey of the holdings of the archives of women religious (deaconesses and nuns, etc.), she said. Their research produced "Women Religious History Sources," found at the Salina Public Library. "That project took two years. And during that time, I fell in love with Salina. I stayed, around and one thing led to another. A lot of different projects dovetailed. One finishes and another starts," she said. In the years since the women religious project, she established the St. Francis Boys Home archives and created a library at Brown Mackie College where she works four days a week. She works at the research desk at the public library on Fridays and is doing research on the stained-glass windows at Christ Cathedral. White is concerned about Salina's historic buildings and works on the Heritage Commission. She also volunteers as an the archivist and historiographer (a specialist in the methods of historical study) for the Episcopal Diocese of Western Kansas, she said. Her church work weds two deep interests, libraries and religion, as she traces and files church records and writes church history from those. The Episcopal Church is part of her own history, for she has grown up in the denomination. She also has a degree in the library field and a masters degree in religion, she said. In her work at the church she received a call last summer from a Japanese national broadcasting company wanting to do a documentary on the Nichols family, the oldest American-born family living in Japan, White said. Four generations of the Nichols family have lived in Japan, beginning with two single people from the United States who were sent by the Episcopal Domestic and Foreign Missions to Japan at the end of the 19th century. They met and married, giving birth to a daughter named Hasuannah, White said. Hasuannah married Shirley H. Nichols, a New Bishop Shirley Nichols and his wife, Ha- suannah. York City seminary student who had gone to Japan. They returned to the United States during of World War n, and Shirley Nichols became the bishop of what then was the Missionary District of Western Kansas, with its headquarters in Salina, from 1941 to 1955, White said. One of their sons, Walter, remained in Japan and began to work for an import-export company. He married and had a son, Nickoli. His wife, Aiko, came to the United States with the national broadcasting representative last summer to interview people at the church, White said. White said the study of people and places such as the Japanese saga remind her that the present is shaped by the past. "Being a historiographer helps bring history to life. I have the privilege of knowing there -were things going on before I arrived on the scene. "A great many people approach a new job or place as though nothing happened before they arrived. A little sense of history changes that perspective drastically. "One begins to ask questions like 'How was that put here, who built it, and why is it the way it is?' And the questions always lead one back to people. Nothing happens without people. Someone planted the plant. Someone built the house. "We have wonderful stories on every street corner, right here in Salina, but we miss them because we don't bother to look behind the scenes or ask the questions. "We have to get away from thinking of history as a list of dates. It's really the stories of cities, buildings, people and institutions," White said. "And it's a curious thing. Once you start, there's never an end." SPRING CLEANING SPECIAL THE TIME IS NOW!
