About fnur year ago theJhectors nf the Woman' Club sought a new line of endeavor for the Social Bcrv-ice di'partment, one thut would make an especial appeal and arouse a new imireat amontc the numbers, ienrn-iir; of the splendid work can led on mi suiwBHfully by the fcSchonl Chil-iln n's Aid committee of the Chicago W inan's Club, It was decided by the directors to try out this name line of work In H looming ton. A committee I was appointed to curfer wltn the llureuu of Social Service uni the a -hool authorities and get their point nf view. The plan met wltn hearty approval and close co-operation was promised. It was decided to work thru the Bureau of Social Service and Hie truant otnVer, and thu uvoid duplication of effort, the Woman s Club furnishing tho gai-mont and the llureau and truant oltlcnr to Investigate and report any child kept from school because of the lack of u indent clothing. , Children and their needs r.- very dear to the hearts of women, and when the work for the sch3ol children was put before the members of the club they took hold very eagerly and earnestly and many pledged themselves to help carry on tho work. During the first year one all-day meetin.T was held each month at the club rooms, with luncheon served at noon. During the intervening weekj, the lirH year, afternoon meetings were held at tho homes of 'be members, and the sewing combined with a cup of tea at tho close uf the afternoon helped to bring the members closer together and created a wider portability and acquaintanceship. The garments made have always been dark outing flannel bloomers pnd one piece petticoats. As fast as the garments are completed they are taken to ths Bureau of Social .Service and put upon the shelves reserved for the Woman's Club, to be given out as the need arises. It Is not ottcn that new garments find their way to the rooms of the llurc-au of Social SerV" ice, and Mrs. Seymour ttnd Ilrs. fry have often expressed their dvllght ut having such clean, "comfy" clothing to hand to a shivering, illy clad little kiddle, and the Joy of the kiddle In the possession of the clothing has many times been pathetic in the extreme. It Is needless to expect children to attend school tind t'.o good work with shivering and empty stomachs. It is the aim and the pleasure of the School Children's Aid to help supply this warm clothing. In the three years the committee My Most Memorable Thanksgiving Day Frank W. Alclrioh Mv mrtar mem. nrable Thanksgiving was as a boy at McLean. 1 skated upon Huirar creek on the holiday and there was ten-Inch Ice. Harvesters were at wor!; cutting tho congealed product. It would be difficult to Imagine ten Inches of water now In that nrrnm at Thanksgiving time. Itev. J. N. Klllntt My most mem-orable Thanksgiving was at Muhcb-tlne, a., twelve yean ago. Some of my congregation at one time heard m remark that my favorite pie was puinjiKin inn tnai never in my life had I been able to get enough of this pastry. That Thanksgiving everybody got busy. No less than forty pumpkin pies were sent to us, and, at last, I could truthfully say that I had enough pumpkin pie, Egbert Hawk All my Thnnksglv-Ings have been memorable, but perhaps those thut stund out most prominently In my memory were those at my grandfather's farm. There was always two turkeys and such a quantity of other good things that there was no chance to leave the table hungry. Those were the gusta tory uayg nnd the present Keneiutlon has little conception of the Thanks giving dinner that mas served on the Illinois farm of my boyhood. John O. Welch When I was a boy and assisting my father In conducting a grocery store we sold 100 dressed turkeys one TankBglving and each one brought 10 cents per pound, full dressed. I recall that a farmer from Leroy came In w:th thirty and we paid him somethlmr like 125 In trade for the lot. lie went home well sat.sfled. 1 well remember that rain fell Incessantly the day before Thanksgiving, the roads were bot tomless and the deliveryman was swamped. I had to help deliver the hundied birds and It was some Job, believe me. DR. JONES SPEAKS AT ROTARY CLUB Former Bloomington Minister Delivered Eloquent Address On "The Pilgrim Fathers." WAS THANKSGIVING EVENT A. M. Kltchell My most notable Thanksgiving was as a boy. I wenn out hunting with "Jack" Welch, now city commissioner. While we were out the Evans block on North Main street was destroyed by fire. During the trip the pair of us vat upon n fence with a cun between us. One, I don't remember which, dropppd the gun and It was discharged, the load passing between the two of us. It was a narrow escape for both. We never sat on a fence thereafter car rying a loaded gun. When we reached home the folks joshed us for being away when the big fire was in progress and missing the Bight. It was a disappointment to both of us, but we were thankful that we es caped Injury from the falling gun. The meeting of the Bloomington Rotary Club was held In the Illinois hotel dining room Wednesday noon, Thanksgiving necessitating a change from the customary Thursday gathering, .The dining room was appro. prltely decorated for the Thanksgiving season and there was an unusually attractive program. Former President John D. Cunningham wai chairman of the day and he wai In troduced by Charles F. J. Agle, also! a past president. Unusuul "pep" featured the club singing and two numbers were given by the new Rotary quartet, composed of "Doc" Gibson, "AP Bergen, l.yle Straight nnd Hoy Atkinson. Itev. Charles Mctcalf read President Wilson's Thanksgiving proclamation. Dr. Jonsi ths 8peiker, Rev. Edgar DeWltt Jones, now of Detroit, and formerly pastor of the rirst Christian church, and a mem ber of the local Uotary Club, was the guest of honor and speaker for the occasion. His topic was "The Pilgrim Fathers Still Dive." He was greeted with "Auld Mng Syne" when ne appeared. He gave an eloquent description of the character of the Pilgrims and of the hardships they endured on the Massachusetts coast 300 years ago. "Thclr's was the spirit of youth," he said, "with all Its courage, buoyancy and faith. The spirit of the pioneer lives today and keeps our face toward the east toward the rialng sun." Dr. Jones described the Pilgrims as the least Purltaniral of all the Puritans and declared thnt for their time they were remarkably liberal tnlnded. ine meeting ciosea wttn tne notary salute to Dr. Jones and the singing of "America." ' GIRL RESERVES PUT ON THANKSGIVING PLAY BY MISS VERNA HARRISON The high school freshmen, Tliomni Mctcalf and grade school Girl Reserves put on most creditable Thanksgiving service programs Tuesday and VVednesdny afternoon In tho Y. W. C. A. gymnasium. Two hundred and fifty girls took part. F.ach ecrvlce progrum was opened with a march, during which each girl deposited In decorated baskets, potato! end apples. More than two bushels were turned over to the Social Service Bureau to be distributed In Thanksgiving baskets. The whole program was In com memoration of the tercentennial of the landing of the Pilgrims. The most Interesting feature of the two days celebration was the putting on of "Pilgrim Days." with a prologue telling of ths first Thanksgiving, which wss followed bv a two act play rlrnmatlrlng the courtship of Mil' Standlsh. "Pilgrim Days" wi written and staged by Miss Verna Har rison, girls' work secretary ut the Y. W. C. A.

Ffforts will be made to stimulate Interest In the movement thru the parent-teactier association of the various schools.

The first enabling act provided for a referendum vote on the proposition. The next gave the school boards outright authority, practically every Hate has a similar law. Three state California.

My brother, Hudson, was teaching school In the country and became snowbound. He could not come home and the rest of us enjoyed the good things and felt sorry for Hudson. We usually looked for heavy snowfall In New England tn November and It wai not unusual tor that period. John Becker The Thanksgivings that are no more, those when we could so up town and get a Tom and I Jerry and a turkey lunch, those are the most memorable and stand out by reason of the facthot there can be no more of them. Those were the days, tho good old Thanksgiving days, now but a misty memory. A. able that .G. JSrlckson My most memor-Thunksglvlng? Well, the one I never forgot was tn 1803 Mrs. Gertrude Bock is Claimed By Death Mrs. Gertrude Bock, wife of As sistant City Clerk Herman Bock, tiled at 6:30 p. m. yesterday at St. Joseph's hospital. Death was caused by typhoH fever. She had been 111 three weeks. Rhe was 80 years old. Mrs. Bock was born In Bloomington April 16. 1890. She was a daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. Jabei Skelton. She married Herman Bock October 11, 1913. Besides her husband and parents, she leaves a son, Stanley, nnd a sister. Mrs. Claud Carlock, wife of Deputy County Clerk Claud Car- lock, Mr. Bock was widely known In Bloomington. She was a member of Kevstone chanter No. 617. O. B. S.. and First hrlstlan church.

In addition to the outing flannel garments, blouses made from halt worn men's shirts, aprons and little dresses made frjm materials eiven bv cluo memuurs have also been furnished neydy school children. A shoe fund has been allowed each year, and In tho neighborhood of fifty pairs of shoe have been furnished when shocp to Ml have been lacking at the Bureau of Social Service. The committee wants to ever stand ready to meet the need whin tha call comes, but to do this there must be money and It was to augment tho amount available from tae. club treasury that the card-lea was Dlanned. It Is interesting to note in passing that all during tho war the Social Service department was the only one Ihut functioned, and the School Chil dren's Aid was most active. Much Red Cross work was rtono r,y the Woman's Club but the members did not forget the children In our mid3t; their need3 were looked after just as faithfully as before or since tha war. The Woman's Club is pledged to do its utmost In the great work of Americanization, one phase of which is the School Children's Ala. uy assisting the Bureau of Social Service to meet the need for proper clothing the club is making it-possible for every child, even the poorest, to have an education, and education makes for good Americans and good citizenship. The future depends upon the children of today, and it Is obvious that they must he clothed, fed and prcperly cared for that they may make the most of their opportunities.

I did not know that there was such a bird as a turkey in the Philippines and when Thanksgiving dinner was served at the Oriente hotel I was amazed when the menu presented roast turkey.
