Her parents were Francis Marion Burke and Zerelda Montgomery Burke, members of pioneer families who came by oxen-pulled wagons from Missouri to California in 1849. Grandfather Alexander Burke brought the first prairie schooner into Ukiah Valley. Burke Hill Drive and Montgomery Redwoods are reminders of thpse early settlers. Betty, as, ^;lizabeth was called, spent many evenings with her brothers and sisters cbzily gathered around the glowing family fireplace, listening, spellbound, to recoCmted tales of the perilous crossing of the plains, she has oftai told her daughter Mary.' In 1896, Ukiah High School graduated its second class, composed of six students. Elizabeth Jane Burke \yas one of them. Mrs. Porterfield's Acadefny of Ukiah prepared Betty for a brief period of teaching. On Christmas Eve, 1898, B^tty became the wife, of E^ias . Frederick Scholl, a' native of Indi£(na, now deceased. They made their" home in Ukiah throughout their married life. Six of their 10 children are still living.

No place like home for fatal acBtdents "Home sweet home" may are some tips on how to be an oasis of comfort and pirepare: security, but it also may be a 1. — Post a. list of important booby trap for your children, telephone numbers on a wall For, according to'the Health by your telephone. Insurance Institute, there's no 2. — Take a first aid course if place like home for having an accident—especially a serious one involving youngsters. The evidence, as provided by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, is that the leading cause of injury and accidental death of young children today is accidents in the home. How is that possible? Experts cite these two major factors: 1. A child-is naturally active and curious. But his. sense of balance and fear of danger do not develop until he matures and has sorhe experience. He gets thai experience at the wrong time in the home. If nobody's watching him, look out. 2. For the child, an average home, unfortunately, is full of danger. What an adult cain cope with easily — staircases, hot stoves, electric wires and the like — can be killers and maimers to children. Falls at.Top The leading accidents suffered by children include severe falls, blows, cuts and animal bites,, suffocation and strangulation, poisoning, drowning, fires, burns and electric shock. But the most common home injuries to the very young, reports the HEW, is caused by falls. Some precautions that might save you grief are: —Keep crib sides up so a baby won't roll out. —Keep stairs free of objects which could cause you to fall while carrying your child. —Keep hallways and staircases well lighted. ^Remember, even a small child can open doors. So lock those that lead to danger. —Lock gates leading to stairways and doorways. —Don't ever let a child lean out of windoAvs. —Make a practice of opening windows from the top. If you use screen, be'sure they are sturdy and cannot be easily pushed out. —Use non-skid mats on the bottom of the bathtub. The Institute points out, too, that even after a parent has done everything to protect the child from accidents, they can still happen. So keep calm. . In Emergency Its wise to plan for an emergency just in case. Here you can, or at least keep a first aid chart taped to the inside of the medicine cabinet and familiarize yourself with its instructions. 3—Have on hand in .your medifiyie cabinet the items needed to treat common emergencies. If another adult or older child can help during an emergency, one person should take care of the accident victim while the other telephones the doctor. If you are alone, quiet the child as quickly as possible administer any urgently needed first aid, then telephone. For night emergencies , or when a doctor is not available^ dial the all-emergency code which is published in any phone book and should also be on that telephone Ust.

Scholl, who was born in Ukiah Valley Jan. 31, 1878, will be celebrating her 100th birthday Tuesday at Ukiah Convalescent Hospital in a special party planned for her by her daughter and son-in-law Mary and Miles Post, shown with her here.

Oh where, oh where can our seniors 'park' Life in Mendocino County By FAE WOODWARD Have you ever felt like the whole world is out to get you? Well, it is! Especially if you are a senior citizen living on a fixed income. With the cost of living' beleaguering all oiir bu^igets from every side, ^veral hundred of the area's seniors are presently facing that straw that may break the camel's back — another rent hike. These are citizens that are residing in some of Mendocino County's over 100 mobile home parks. Just In the Ukiah area, alone, rent hikes in the past three years have brought in owners of just three of the trailer parks in which senior citizens reside. In one trailer park, a social , seciu-ity recipient told me that when her benefits were increased $8.50 more a month, her landlord raised her rent $8.50. Since that timie the rent has gone up twice again, first $7.50 and then $5 a "month. Although these rent hikes have just about inundated the more than two-thirds of its residents on social security, this trailer park's hikes are bnly half the amount of those in two other parks where rents were higher to begin with. , In almost every mobile home park, the seniors say they might understand if the cost of maintaining their parks was increasing, but they say there is little or no maintenance. In one court, mobile home owners pay for this extra. One trailer I park owner informed those with their homes in his park that he had purchased the park on speculation and.that he didn't intend to put one penny into it. What is the answer for these Mendocino County residents? Are they going to be forced to sell their little homes in. favor of an institution?; Well...some trailer park owners have even anticipated this and already have informed their tenants that the park owner must approve any purchaser. One senior citizen told me it costs from $1,000 to $1,500 to move a trailer home ft-om the park to another location. And \yhere would they move? A meeting to seek a temporary solution to hotising problems of seniors is being held Monday at 1 p.m. in the recreation buildlAg at the Senior Center, 495 Leslie St., Ukiah. A representative of the housing authority will discuss subsidized housing and rental assistance. ^yhether or not this particular Meeting will be & solution to the problems of the mobile home owners, it will give these people an opportunity to get together and pool their complaints. If, as was suggested to one mobilehome i owner by a person in the social security office, they decide to draw up a petition to Governor Brown, this could be the start of positive action on their behalf. Many of our seniors simply swoUow their pride and say nothing. I would like to remind them of that old adage: "It is ^Lhe squeaking door that gets Igreased."
