Farm Bureau Women Plan Program Themes 10 Timt* Htrald, Carroll, Iowa Wednesday, July 3, 1957 rrlscilla Atdcn Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, asks all business places and homes to display the American Flag on July 4. John Adams thought the United States of America would observe July 2 as Independence Day, because it was on this day in 1776 that the Continental Congress adopted the resolution of independence written by Richard Henry Lee. John Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail, whose picture is on the seal of the national society. Daughters of the American Revolution, that this country would always remember July 2. He said, "The second of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America." But the day we all observe is the Fourth of July, because it was then that the formal Declara t i o n of Independence was adopted. Iowa Editor Sits in on 2 Mass Burials By W. EARL HALL Editor. Mason City Globe-Gazette LAKE CHARLES, La. W-The Gulf Coast's greatest catastrophe of wind and water since the Galveston disaster of 1900. was impressed on me in a way I shall never forget Monday afternoon. Within an hour I sat in on two mass burials in which some 67 un identified bodies from last week's tidal wave at. nearby Cameron were lowered into huge trenches by a giant crane. Children in Arms At the first of the two services In Combre Memprial Cemetery for Negroes, there was a crowd made up largely of distraught and weeping women. Many had children in arms or at their side. Fifty crudely built pine coffins were stretched out side by side in a trench 200 feet long. At the second service for the unidentified whites, there were 17 such boxes. But at the end of the rites, participated in by Protestant, Catholic and Jewish clergymen, cranes and bulldozers left uncovered some space for additional bodies. Unidentified victims may total several hundred. On a visit to Red Cross shelters, one for whites in a magnificent senior high school Jjere^ one for General program themes for the coming year were decided by members of the Farm Bureau Women's Committee at their July meeting Tuesday afternoon in the Farm Bureau building. The three general themes selected were "Basic Concepts of Freedom," "Neighbors Near and Far," and "Talents," the last- named to include art, music, or any talents the women might wish to use for program material. Mrs. Orville Best of Sac County, fourth district committee woman of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, will meet with the Carroll County committee in September to present materials for use in carrying out these themes. Mrs. George Maze of Maple River township and Mrs. Henry Huegerich of grant township were appointed as a committee to nominate new officers for next year. Mrs. F. P. Collison of Maple River township, chairman of health and safety, reported on work of the Iowa Society for Crippled Children and Adults in Carroll County. She said that if contribu-! tions could be raised to average 38 cents per family, a higher percentage of funds collected for the society could be kept in Carroll County for work with local citizens. Plans were made for the annual Farm Bureau picnic which is to be held in Graham Park, August 15. All Farm Bureau families are invited. The Women's Committee will have charge of the potluck dinner. Negroes in a grade school not far distant, I met up with many escapees from the storm and sensed their anxiety to some extent at least. At a dock on the Ahrles River, which broadens out into a sizeable lake here, I watched sorrowing relatives of missing persons as they inspected, unidentified bodies for distinguishing marks. Transition in Disaster In a real sense this mass burial constitutes transition in this disaster story. Up to now it has centered about those who died and those who were rescued. It has been told in the headlines. From this point on there is going to be nothing spectacular or glamorous. The task of getting hundreds of displaced families back ' in their homes and kindling in them a blaze of hope, has now started. Almost 100 Red Cross specialists in disaster relief are now here. An Iowan, Don Stoup of Atlanta, a native of Cedar Falls and a graduate of Iowa State Teachers College, is in general charge. AT CHRIST CHILD CAMP (Time* Herald News Service) ARCADIA — Mr. and Mrs. Cyrenus Diers and family of Arcadia were Sunday dinner guests at Oliver Enenbach's in Omaha. In the afternoon the Diers and Enen bachs drove to Blair, Neb., where Robert Diers and Craig Enenbach stayed at Christ Child Camp to spend the week. of 1957 G-E APPLIANCES G-E Room Air Conditioners I ton Thinline with thermostat control.
