Marian Echelbarger, Norma Ter- llrri, Alice Yarde, Frances Andrews. Tlie girls sang beautifully, with perfect accord, and their elections were appreciatively received. They were "Bless This House." by Brake, and "In a Japanese Garden." by Gibb. The main address was given by Mrs. E. C. Holmqulst of Galesburg. state American home chairman. H«r message under the topic. "The Home Maker Looks to the Future." was presented with an enthusiasm Inspired by her recent attendance at the homemakers Institute In Chicago and an Institute tour of the state. She noted the educational advantages In federation work and the aatisfaction derived from holding hands with the women around the world in making thte world a little better. Through the general federation we are recognised and consulted by the government in ovir departments of work, she said, and urged active Interest in the new department of national defense, and appoint a chairman of national defense in each cliw. Under her theme Mrs. Holmqulst stressed the thought that the home is the spirit of the nation, that it is the nation and that democracy depends upon the spirituality of our homes. Through our homes we serve the nation, so our American home must have a three-fold nutrition: Spiritual, mental and physical. The home must teach appreciation and respect for our religloua institutions and create a desire ambng our young people to have an interest in the church. Give religloiu instruction in the home arid revive the family altar. Bidotie the teaching of the fundamentals of religion in the public schools, for we all believe in God and the Ten Commandments regardless of religious creed. Character and" personality should be developed hi the home. Replace Hat* with I*ve What can dub women do in religion, she questions. They can replace hate with love. We do not hate people, or persons, but what _ is going to live— but Hitler and Italy's ruler will be the comic art of history-. Where is our faith, she admonished. when war comes. This time will pass; look beyond this, to the future. Our problem is living in a world of war. Homemakers. concentrate on improving your minds, study, learn new methods of cooking, enter adult classes in education, take advantage of the classes in home nursing being organized and the nurses' aid classes which offer employment. Learn how to care for and to keep in repair your home electrical equipment. Study federated club work. Even,- department helps to make you a better homemaker and a more interesting woman. Study nutrition for your family; spread the gospel of correct nutrition. The United States is said to be the test fed nation of the world. Yet took at our malnutrition. was advised, and again this malnutrition ~~ti "Tar from being limited to the underprivileged. lira. Hoimquist gave emphasis to the ideas she wished to especially stress with appropriate verse, and concluded with a short talk on Park Ridge school for girls, one of Illinois' projects lor federation work. Park Ridge, which provides a home for homeless children, maintains a grade and standard accredited high school, including a home economics department. She urged the clubs to include Illinois cottage at Park Ridge in their benevolences. Chairmaa Speaks Mrs. P. M. Keck of Freeport. thirteenth district first vice president and district chairman of national defense, said, "We have to stand by our country in need and work together at this time." She listed the 14 departments under national defense and each club msy choose the departments in which they wish to serve. She told of a new organization being started for knitters, named "Knitting for soldiers at camp." Mrs Keck recently visited Camp Grant and Savanna camp to investigate the needs for the iobifers.

Rochrllr as many are planning to, make the trip to see the contest. The preliminary is scheduled to start at 6:30. followed by the varsity contest at about 8 o'clock. Fortunately. Rochelle has a flnel ty-ass field, located j<ist west of the, high school, and if it stops ruining.! it should be in fair condition, although It is bound to be slippery. On a slippery field anything can happen, so the outcome may depend ; much on the breaks A wet field is I to thc disadvantage of the Rock i Falls team, which depends on per- feet execution of the plavs. With! a wet ball, this is not always so easy.

Rock Falls, re- rpi\rd a very pnlnful bruUe across the lower pnrt of hi* back in an sc- rident on First avenue, about 5:15 Thursday evening. Lawrfnce. who was delivering some Chicago papers at the time, had Just come out of a driveway on tin east side of the highway, between Eighth and Ninth streets, when a truck loaded with large Ran pipe passed by. Joe Kerekes of Tulsa. Okla, driver of the truck, honked at the boy as he passed him. According to the story- given police. Mr. Kerekes had to pull off the paving onto the shoulder, being crowded off by a car In the rain. The youth, apparently, pulled alongside the long pipe, and. he states, the first thing he knew something struck him and knocked him off the bike. Thi. pipe is quite long, being held up by a trailer at the end. He was removed to his home, and felt better today, except that hi* back was very painful. It is possible that an X-ray may be taken to determine if he possibly has some broken bones. The bicycle was badly damaged. Both the driver and his wife have called at the Benton home, and it Is understood that the company is doing everything possible to help the boy.

"I am taking three hours of trigonometry and two of algebra, bot.h under Profen*or Arnold. The algebra Is the second- semester course, and the trigonometry is also a little more advanced than the regular trigonometry because of my high school course. 1 made an A on my six weeks triglnometry test, but 1 don't know what 1 made on the algebra test. Right after I handed in my algebra test I remembered a mistake that will "make one problem wrong. Now why couldn't 1 have remembered it a little sooner? My other courses are five hours of Oer-/ man. three of English, and two of speech. "I hear Rock Falls is doing flno in football. There is a Pekin boy out for freshman football, and we had a big talk about, thc game last year. He sa.vs he is the one who quick-kicked after they stopped Rock Falls' first drive.
