Oolesbur ster-Moil, Golesbur Saturdo Organizing Williamsfield History Data WILLIAMSFIELD - When the Home Culture Club entered the General Federation of Women's Clubs Community Improvement Contest last fall, the project chosen by the members was to write a history of Williamsfield. A committee was appointed to begin work and with Miss Martha Larsen as chairman, has been assembling material. Last week a meeting was held in Miss Larsen's home to go over the material and start work on an outline for the history. Among materials so far assembled, is a picture taken in 1887 of the actual construction of the Santa Fe Railway through what is now the town- site. Miss Myrtle German, St, Louis, contributed the picture. Mrs. George Kneer has loaned a Knox County History written in 1912; and a History of Illinois with a large section on Knox County, published between 1892 and 1895. Mrs. Nettie Caldwell has in her possession many pictures and items of value to the committee of which she is a member. Letters of interest have been received from readers of the Williamsfield Times, including Harold Winchester, Chillicothe; Mrs. Ralph Mahaney, LaFayette, whose great-grandparents, Annie and James Mahar, sold the land on which the town is located, for $100 an acre, and Mrs. Celesta Potts. Committee members have visited with A. L. Doubet, who lent his high school report card, and explained that one of the first classes to complete the course of three years of high school, did so in 1900 under P. S. Gristy. The three members of the class were Mame Kimler, Laura Tucker and A. L. Doubet. The committee would like a copy of a history of Knox County published in 1918. Copies were given to all the schools by Supt. Boyes. If anyone has a copy of the Bishop Hill History and would care to lend it, it would be of help. Meeting with Miss Larsen were Mrs. Nettie Caldwell, Mrs. R. E. Murdock and Mrs. F. H. Jaquet. OUR ANCESTORS •axwmtf mykm BANK RD8BCRY!

Defense Gem For Thinkers By OSWALD JACOBY Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Here is a little gem from "Winning Defense." South ducks the first heart and wins the second in dummy. Then he plays a low club and East should rise with his king. It won't do him any real good to hang on to it and if West has the ace of clubs the play of the king will allow him to save it as a later entry for the heart suit. If East doesn't play the king it is still possible to defeat the contract, but a lot of defense is necessary. To start, Wes 1 must hold back his ace. A second club lead will knock out East's king and East will return his last heart. South will take his ace and lead his queen of diamonds for a finesse. East will be in with the king and have no better play than a diamond return. Dummy will cash three diamond tricks. East will follow suit while South will discard either two clubs or a spade and a club. It doesn't actually matter. However, West's one discard is most important. He is looking at two rather little spades a couple of good hearts and the ace of clubs and if he is careless and throws away one of those spades he will give South the hand. Instead, he should discard a heart. Now South leads a spade to his king and East must play carefully. He must play either the nine or ten of spades—not the five spot Finally, South leads a second spade and you can see why it was important for West to have one left. He plays the eight of spades and if South ducks in dummy that eight will hold the trick.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Texas-born Negro who grew from a hard-knocking football lineman into a gentle-mannered schoolmaster has been picked to handle one of San Francisco's toughest school jobs—the new post of human relations officer. With the rank and $17,400 salary of assistant superintendent, Dr. William L. Cobb is the first administrator in a metropolitan American school svstem charged with exclusive and specific responsibility for dealing with race and civil rights problems. As a football center at Texas College in Tyler, Tex., Cobb was the center choice on a Negro All America picked from Negro college teams in 1934. Still near his playing weight of 190 pounds, Cobb has shaped a personal philosophy in 24 yearso f school teaching that is sharply different from his football purpose. "If you want to get somewhere, don't push somebody else down," Cobb said in talking of the aims of his new assignment in an interview. "Let's all go there together." Cobb did not seek the job to which he was appointed Sept. 28 by Dr. Harold Spears, San Francisco school superintendent, with unanimous confirmation by the Board of Education. Cobb was appointed principal of San Francisco's Emerson Elementary School in 1947 as the first Negro public school administrator in Northern California. Cobb, 52, served 16 years at Emerson, now a predominantly Negro school in the North Fillmore district, a major center of Netrro population. Cobb came to the San Francisco area in World War II as a civilian worker in the Navy's supply organization. He had been a teaching principal for eight years in all-Negro high schools at. Kilgore and Hawkins, Tex. He had earned a master's degree at the University of Southern California in 1940 and his doctorate at the University of California at Berkeley. The post of human relations officer was authorized following a stormy year during which Negro organizations charged that there was de facto segregation and the citizens committee for Burnett accompanied Lauretta Parli, Susan Donaldson, Marilyn Knox, Nola Conger and Kyle Kennelly to Quincy Friday. They visited Sunset Home and Chaddock Boys School in preparation for their presentation to the church over the next five weeks the work of the benevolence institution of the Central Illinois conference. The facilities are supported in part by the MYF's Festival of Sharing.

WILLIAMSFIELD - The mystery of Home Culture Club's October party was solved Tuesday when the caravan of cars arrived at the entrance of LaFayette Home Nursery. A conducted tour" of the 120 acres of tree and shrub plantings was arranged by the Ingels Nurserymen. Members rode hayrack style and the vehicles were equipped with 2-way radio so that all could, hear the tour conductor, ask questions, then have them answered. LaFayette Home Nursery has been in the same family since its beginning and as the conductor, Roger Ingels, pointed out, the FNA—Future Nurserymen of America, the fifth generation of Ingels, are now in process of growing up. More than 500 varieties of trees and shrubs are raised but r nothing has been found tot take the place of the American Elm. Ingels believes that eventually a strain of disease resistant elm will be discovered and they will make a comeback, just as the chestnut tree is doing now after 30 years. Following the mobile tour half the members were served coffee, cold drink and doughnuts in the shade of the office building with Mrs. Roger Ingels as their hostess. The other half toured the greenhouse with James Ingels as their guide. Chrysanthemums were in all their glory both inside and outside the greenhouse. As the tour groups exchanged places, Mrs. Ingels told of some of the recent landscaping jobs which the Home Nursery had completed and on which they had won medals in Peoria's City Beautiful Contest. One of the largest enterprises the firm has carried out was setting out six large trees at the John Deere plant in Moline. Each maple was 12 inches in diameter and over 100 feet tall and required a large semi-trailer to transport it to Moline. For ready shade the cost is a mere $600 apiece. Planning the afternoon event were Mrs. Lloyd Smith, Mrs. Richard Fuller, Mrs. John Englund, Mrs. F. H. Jaquet and Mrs. R. E. Murdock. Refreshments were provided by Mrs. Lester Johnson, Nfrs. Howard Coe and Miss Pluma Elburg.
