Miss Meyers Gives Program For Mosaic Mfss BtiSsie Meyers entertained members of Mosaic Club this week when she presented a program on Madam Schumann Heink, in the first person. Hostess for the luncheon was Mrs. David AUensworth, 1621 N. Prairie St., assisted by Mrs. W. R. AUensworth. Born in Prague in 1861, Ma-j dam Schumann Heink's mother was a singer so at the age of 3, she was singing. Since her father was in the Army, the family moved from place to place, but finally the artist's father consented to let his "fat and ugly" daughter take singing lessons from an Army friend. At age 14 she had her first opera company tryouts with discouraging results except for a business man who thought she has possibilities. He signed a contract with her. Her voice by then had a three- octave range and acting was second nature to her. At 18 he married Heink, and her career suffered as a result until the day Brahms heard her. Then success was hers and she started singing throughout Europe and later the states.' The opera singer subsequently divorced Heink and married Schumman.

ALICE BROCKMAN (Staff Writer) It's hard work keeping up with a 4-H'er these days, since these busy youngsters are into crocheting, painting, macra- meing, baking and candle stick making. One 11-year-old girl, when asked if she did babysitting, replied, "How can I, I'm much too busy with 4-H.'^ Since its inception in the first part of the century, 4-H has broadened its emphasis in the 70's to include urban youth, as well as rural. Membership is. open to all youngsters, 9 to 19. There are 50 clubs now in Knox County, with a total membership approaching 900. Agriculture clubs number 21, 27 are home economics clubs and two are general. The trend is toward making all clubs general, since this would allow both boys and girls to participate in all 4-H activities and projects. Perhaps the reason for the growth and interest in the club is that its objectives are not just to have fun^ but to learn practical, new skills through individual projects and to develop leadership abilities. This was aptly demonstrated at a recent meeting of the Gale Elves Club, led by Mrs. George Stephenson and Mrs. William Brady. Members learn public speaking as they give talks and project demonstrations. This is not without its perils, however, as one girl, who wanted to show her cat to illustrate a cat care talk, couldn't find Smokey in time for the meeting. Each club participates m money making projects, conducts all meetings by parliamentarian rules and in a democratic fashion. Record keeping is also stressed, since diagrams and progress charts * must be kept on each project for eventual exhibiting at Finale Day or the Knox County 4-H Show in August. Complete Projects Maybe the most valuable lesson taught is finishing any project which is started. Bach member strives to be an "Achievement Member" each year. This means completing at least one project, plus any others signed up for, and attending at least two-thirds of the meetings, which, are usually held monthly. Members also choose their own club names, but they sound as if they were rhymed by a poet. For example, some of the Knox County club names are Sugar and Spice, The Happy Hustlers, Lucky Leprochaums, Make and Bake, Stitch and Stir, and Mix and Fix. The list of projects available includes something for everyone. Home economics favorites listed by Mrs. E. G. Tribbey, associate extension advisor, are candlemaking, ceramics, leathercraft, bird study, sewing, knitting, cooking, crocheting, stitchery, and painting. Farm boys and girls can choose from these, but are also interested in crops, dairy, horse and pony, livestock, science, gardening, poultry, electricity, forestry, gun safety and dog care, among others. As if this list were not all inclusive, there is also one entitled "Do Your Own Thing." Don't let it ever be said that 4-H isn't keeping up with the times. Plan TV Programs Since the main goal of 4-H administrators is to reach more youngsters, Mrs. Trib^ bey emphasized, the organization is turning to TV. Starting Saturday, April 21, a six- part nutrition series, "Mulligan Stew," will be seen on WQAD, Moline (Channel 8). The shows, all in cartoon form with a "Sesame Street" flavor, are geared to fourth, fifth and sixth graders. The shows are sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture and the IVinois Cooperative Extension Service. They will be seen on six consecutive Saturdays at 1 p.m. A manual disguised as a comic book accompanies the shows, and each member will fill out the "lessons" which will be discussed in all the Middle School's science classes, Mrs. Tribbey said. The manual includes songs, puzzles, games, recipes, food experimei^ts and a nutrition chart. April 28 is the annual i^H "Share the Fun" Night. Various clubs give skits, which include music, comedy and dramatic acts, dancing, baton twirling, and so forth. Some clubs will enter master of ceremonies, who announce the acts and keep the audience 's attention. Acts will be judged, and one M.C. and one skit will be selected to go to the Illinois State Fair. Share the Fun will be held at George Churchill Junior High School at 7 p.m. The end of the school yedr does not mark the end of 4-H activities. Members wiU be busy finishing projects for summer shows, camping at Camp Shaubena, taking all day picnic and bike trips, and attending workshop demonstrations by professionals in all the available projects. The 4-H pledge says it all: I pledge my Head to clearer thinking, my Heart to greater loyaJ,ty, my Hands to larger service, and my Health to better living, for my club, my community, and my country. •. • Calendar of l/¥ji • • • GHS PTA Galesburg High School Parent - Teacher Association will meet on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of the high school.
