Hoffman when he addressed the Woman's Society of Christian Service Friday evening at First Methodist Church. This was the first of three evening meetings planned for this year and it opened with Mrs. Albert Rogers leading meditation in the chapel. Dr. Hoffman referred to the movement toward Christian unity as the greatest thing in the world today. While avoiding debate on method, he pointed out that the important thing is that people must feel a need to understand each other, and not be content with their own prejudices. After this need is felt, understanding can begin to develop. It will not happen by itself. "It is a difficult thing to be truly liberal and generous in our attitudes. That's why we have so many denominations. It is easier to separate than to unite on corn- won ground. We need courage and we need grace," he concluded. Presents Selections The program closed with two vocal selections by John Hirst, "Morning" by Oley Speaks and "My Task" by Ashford. Mrs. Hirst was the accompanist. Wesleyan Service Guild members were guests. Mrs. W. 0. Seward, president, conducted the business meeting in the dining room. Plans were announced for the bazaar which will be Dec. 4.

First Book by Former Local Reporter Writs' 3& 9 kt y 0 utkfJtv DM t Sky Pioneers by Jeanne Le- Monnier Gardner, Harcourt Brace and World Inc. This must indeed be the book of the year for the elementary and high school set. Interest today is so firmly centered on men's exploits :n the upper ah 1 , and in space, that every learner ought to have a grasp of the great milestone in flight, which occurred when Wilbur and Orville Wright flew the first powered plane at Kitty Hawk, N. C, many years ago. Mrs. Gardner has put the narrative into a pleasant and compact little volume, not at all a textbook yet just as informative, not at all a nonsense book yet just as much fun to read. She has managed this by em- Business and Professional Women's Club CARD PARTY WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16 7:30 P.M. MOOSE HAU Prises and Refreshments Donation: 75c i A #4 h rt&Mmm Jeanne LeMonnier Gardner broidering, into the bare facts of the Wright Brothers achievement, just enough of the human interest element — some true, some evidently imaginary — to make the narrative come alive. The reader meets the Wrights' sister and parents, views the rehabilitating of a sewing machine, the building of kites, and some other early handiwork of the boys, all in a lightsome way, thence the steps to the momentous flight at Kitty Hawk, and finally the close of the brothers' careers. Technically, it is a workmanlike job of communicating to young readers, with all that statement should imply. It occasions feel­ ings of pride to senior members of the Galesburg Register-Mail news staff to acknowledge that Jeanne LeMonnier Gardner is one of our alumnae, having spent the precise-center years of the 20th century as a reporter on this newspaper. Is some youngster of today baffled by non-participation in the age of flight, with its huge and complicated airplanes and space craft? Then this book is especially for him. It testifies (by example and tacitly) that the application of imagination and skill can bring forth new and wonderful creations, that there are always frontiers for those who are resolute pioneers as were Wilbur and Orville Wright. Sky Pioneers is Mrs. Gardner's first book. Near her home in Irvington-on-Hudson, New York, with her husband and two children, she has employment as a research assistant. Husband Richard, Knox class of 1951, an Air Force veteran, is in magazine advertising work. The writer is a native of Chicago and before her marriage was an airline stewardess. Her next book will be awaited with interest following the approval that seems certain to accrue to a writer who can enliven history and depict, sans preachment, the rewards of study and persistence as Jeanne Gardner has done. — M.H-E, The Tri-Arts ball general committee, meeting this week at the home of Mrs. Clark Palmer, worked out the schedule of events for the evening of Nov. 2 at the Custer Inn; added plans for music and refreshments in the upstairs House and Garden room; decided to include a fourth music group of Knox Hootenanny singers; outlined the procedure for the Grand March and awarding of costume prizes; and offered further costume ideas. Attending the meeting were Mr. and Mrs. John Mellican and Fred Rathgeber, Mrs. Dale Sward, Mrs. George Madsen, Mrs. James Hacker, Mrs. Robert Cabeen, Mrs. Palmer and Mrs. William Gerstner. The ball will open at 9 o'clock in the evening with dance music by the Western Illinois Stage Band; at 9:45 o'clock the "Old Pros" offer a 15-minute Dixieland session; at 10 o'clock the Knox- Galesburg Symphony plays a 45- minute program of Viennese waltzes and show tunes, followed by the Knox Hootenanny singers with a 15-minute series of folk songs. The Stage Band resumes at 11 o'clock playing the Grand March which will be directed by master of ceremonies Tom Poole, who will also introduce the judges at this time. Costume prizewinners will be announced at midnight, and then dancing continues until 1 o'clock. Discussing costuming, it was agreed that almost any desired costume could be fitted into the theme, which is intended as an aid to costume choice and is not mandatory. A pioneer couple might be Sweet Betsy from Pike and Her Lover Ike, Indians might be Hiawatha and Mine-Ha- Ha. Such famous twosomes as the Owl and the Pussycat or the Dish and the Spoon would be quite in keeping. Specific personages need not be portrayed; there might be Newly weds (or Newlydivorcees), a couple clothed in gold might be a Golden Anniversary; a lone reveler might be Narcissus admiring his reflection or some celebrated rejected lover as Cyrano De Bergerac. It was also emphasized that formal clothing may be worn, but masks are required of all and may be obtained at the door. Ladies may attend unescorted. Remembering that many persons came to last year's ball purely as spectators, conversation groups of comfortable upholstered furniture will again be placed in the ballroom.

Mr. and Mrs. Pettit are assisting Mrs. Elmer Jagow as decorations chairmen, and Mr. Rathgeber is general cochairman of the ball with Mr. and Mrs. John Mellican. Expressing the theme "Fantasy of Love," decorations will feature fanciful bird cages constructed of metallic rings, ribbons and art papers, based on Japanese paper constructions (Origami).

One of the groups to benefit from Tri-Arts ball proceeds, the Galesburg Civic Art League for two generations has brought exhibits of original art, artists to demonstrate their techniques, and art lecturers to Galesburg. The walls of the gallery in the Community Lounge, YMCA, have held paintings and prints by Rembrandt, Toulouse-Lautrec, Thomas Hart Benton, and many other artists of worldwide reputation, and have been a source of gallery credits for talented local painters. The whole world of creative arts and crafts have been represented in monthly exhibits from November through May, the season concluding with the colorful outdoor art fair on the Public Square each spring. The gallery is now outgrown, limiting such wanted services as art classes for children and adults, and audience capacity at exhibits. The Art League has started a building fund and plans an arts building for the city.
