Auxiliary event coming Dec. 3 And again -- for the tenth year In a row — the women of the Orange City Municipal Hospital are In process of making - gathering -assembling home made (BUT professional) Christmas decorations. Mrs. Paul Van Engelen- hoven, speaking of the decorations, put It, "It Isn't hard to make things over — but when you start from nothing!" The women In that area don't start from nothing," of course, but the roles common, ordinary things assume are fascinating (and have called forth amazing Imagination). For example there are heavy candle holders -- for large candles « made of discarded Insulators that have been antiqued. There are angels made of burlap and individual dinner table setting candles made In baby food jars. Empty spools from the sewing basket have been transformed Into Christmas tree ornaments. Little shells have become mice on a small round of orange cheddar cheese — that's really a cross section of a large candle. Napkin rings have been made from odds and ends of yarn. An Inverted painted flower pot now sports a wick through the hole in the bottom and serves as a candle. And, of course, no candle is new — they're all made from discarded stubs. Junior-size baby food jars now serve as clear, small Christmas candy jars with Santa Glaus lids. Detergent boxes have become front door decorations with the addition /antasy and evergreen sprigs. Mrs. Orvllle Dorschner, chairman of the handmade gifts asks people to get busy and make things because there is still time. Things needed are crocheted lace, purses, scarfs and caps, slippers, mittens, vests, ties, dish towel sets, children clothes, white handerchiefs with crocheted edge and "any Ideas you other people have." Articles for the bazaar should be taken to the Town Hall on Thursday, Dec. 2, between the hours of 2:00-4:00 p.m. and 7:00-8:30 p.m. In order for the workers to price the articles.

"Officials from the Community Development Section of the Iowa Employment Security Commission, which Is doing the statistical research on the study, say they need a minimum of 6,700 returned questionnaires for a good study, but we would like to hit hippie types—the youngsters with the long hair and all.
