Wyt &lgona dipper EASTER IS A MOST MEANINGFUL day for all Christians. It is especially significant for women. That's the day we dress in our new spring clothes and there is certainly nothing wrong with that so long as we think of the finery as merely an outward expression of an inward job. It might also be well to remember than in the life, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus, women found a position unique in previous history. - o- WOMEN WERE FIRST AT THE CRADLE. When God sent His Son to mankind, he chose a woman, the sweet and gentle Mary, to bear Him, thus glorifying motherhood for all time. Another woman, Elizabeth was the first to recognize that Mary was blessed above all women and that the coming baby was indeed the long- awaited Lord. - o- WOMEN GAINED A NEW SENSE of being worthwhile as they followed Jesus during the time He was teaching. It is no wonder they loved Him for here for the first time was a man who treated women as if they had hearts and souls and brains as well as bodies. He was not shocked at their foibles nor did he deprlcate their potential for good. He listened to them, understood them and taught the revolutionary idea that they could be forgiven no matter how scarlet their sins, if they repented. - o- TO THE SAMARITAN WOMAN at the well, He revealed that He was the Messiah and many were led to believe because of her testimony. He told the woman who washed His feet with her tears and dried them on her hair, that she had shown greater love to Him than the Apostles and that her love proved her many sins had been forgiven. The law of Moses held that no one but the woman was at fault in the sin of adultery, and that the penalty was always stoning. But when Jesus encountered a case of this sort, He said to the men who brought her to Him to be judged, "That one of you who is faultless shall throw the first stone." The men got the point and crept away. Jesus dismissed the woman, forgave her, and told her to sin no more. - o JESUS LOVED HIS FRIENDS Mary and Martha and visited them often. The practical Martha was always fretting and fussing about her housework while Martha preferred to sit and listen to Jesus' words. There's still a lesson in this today for Jesus reminded them that although household tasks are necessary and He didn't demean them, the things of the spirit are "the better WOMEN WERE LAST AT THE CROSS. On that terrible Friday when Christ died, the crowd that had assembled for the spectacle saw the mid-day darkness, heard the earthquake and witnessed the crucifixions and went home beating their breasts. But the women - Mary, mother of Jesus, Mary of Magdala, Mary the Mother of James, and Joanna remained. They took note of the location of the tomb and observed how His body was laid. Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. The Sabbath was, about to^begin. when, they ^must rest in obedience to the commandment. - o WOMEN WERE FIRST AT the empty tomb. Very early Sunday morning, when the Sabbath was over, Mary of Magdala, Mary the Mother of James and Salome took aromatic oils intending to anoint the body of their Lord. It was to be a last womanly service to Him. They had a big problem and they were worrying over what to do about it. The tomb was sealed with a huge stone and they knew that even their combined muscle power might not be enough to roil it away. - o- BUT THE STONE HAD already been rolled away when they arrived at the tomb I They went inside but the body was not to be found, While they stood utterly at a loss, all of a sudden two men In dazzling garments were at their side. The women were terrified, and stood with eyes cast down, but the men said, "Why search among the dead for one who lives?" - o- WOMEN WERE FIRST TO SPREAD the good news. They ran quickly to tell the disciples but the story appeared to them to be nonsense - a mere rumor started by a bunch of grief- stricken women so they would not believe them. So the disciples went home but Mary of Magdala stood at the tomb outside, weeping. Jesus appeared to her but she did not recognize him. She thought He might be a gardener, "They have taken away my Lord and I don't know where they have laid Him," she said when she was asked why she wept. Jesus then said, "Miryl" and she recognized Him. Then she went out' with her marvelous news^'I have seen the Lord I" But the men still didn't believe it until they saw Him with their own eyes. - o- MUCH OF THE ABOVE was gained from the study of the New English Bible which was given to me by my Algona church when we moved away. It's a wonderful version of the Holy Book, one that has brought me comfort, inspiration and new Insight. It can even be read for entertainment! I hope that you and your's will have a most blessed Easter. - o DURING THE WEEK OF APRIL 3 through 9, people having birthdays include Cynthia Ringsdorf, Laura Trout man, Kevin Nelson, Bruce McCullough, Fran Parrott, Robert Deal, David Macumber, James E.

Q tmtctiHio IMS AlOONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, APRIL 7, 1966 2nd No Electricity, 110 Hours - What's It Like? SWEA & EAGLE - Since news gathering has been nil under the circumstances, the following reports are word of mouth grapevine reports, but they Indicate what can happen in modern times, when a mldwestern blizzard strikes, as it did last March 23 - 24. Three members of the feminine sex, a mother, daughter, and passenger, spent 11 hours stranded northwest of Swea City on the blacktop road when their car slid off the road. They had walked aways down the road but didn't know Just where they were, and went back to the car to wait. A nearby farmer found them the next morning and took them to his home. Several farmers were reported to have purchased portable generators to aid in operating pumps and other facilities about their farms. One man who has a milking herd was reportedly unable to get home until Thursday and had to treat 26 of these valuable animals for mastitis. Many television antennas were partially stripped, some bant over double, decorative trees and shrubbery ruined, from the ruthless winds and heavy snow and Ice. At one place It was calfing time and new mothers and about-to- be mothers had to be rounded up repeatedly and driven back into the cattle shed. The high drifts and water shortage contributed to the wandering of the cows. One family sought refuge at another home whan their oil burner smoked up the house during the fierce wind. They were lucky to be able to reach another place to stay. A farmer lost 400 baby turkeys one night, and no reports as to how many were lost before he was finally able to get heat and water for them. One man said he used a blow torch to heat water for coffee. They had some light, as his wife had several antique lamps. Another man walked a mile, late Wednesday afternoon, to do what chores he could, and tried to get home on a tractor, but got stuck and had to walk a half mile the rest of the way. He arrived home around 8:00 and made the remark he would have stayed at the place where his chores were but since his wife wouldn't know where he was she might try to find him. It was still blowing somewhat, and the man had been ill most of the winter, and wasn't used to braving the elements. He was exhausted when he arrived home. This Immediate vicinity was with out electricity for 110 hours and 40 minutes. The first welcome electric sound to reach this reporter's ears was the buzzing of a clock radio at the home of her parents. It was so sudden and unexpected, her head snapped around to the abrupt sound, and she yelled "light, lights, lights!" That was at approximately 10:40 Sunday morning. Some stories had it that we wouldn't have lights until Monday and others, Wednesday, so It really was unexpected. The cold incapacitated houses had different effects on different people. Some sat around huddled up, trying to keep warm. Others had to get around, care for children, livestock, oldsters, etc. This one worried about her parents, managed to get Uiere to see them Thursday afternoon, by walking over a mile, part of the way over a plowed field, which was rough doing Indeed. She found them fit as a fiddle, and snug as a bag In a rug. Willard Mitchell Now Air Force Lieut. Colonel SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. Willard L. Mitchell, above, son of Mrs. Edna M. Mitchell of 15 E.
