Library Corner MRS. CHRIS JUHL, ESTHERVILLE, has the fifth quilt she has finished since last July in her lap. It must now be attached to the quilting frame and tied. Beside her are some of the others, including one in Star of Bethlehem pattern. She finds the double knits a good fabric for quilting. Quifa {vv Fornix BY CAROL HIGGINS In the summer, they had a nice garden, Mrs. Chris Juhl, Estherville, remembers of the farm. "It was nothin' to do 400 quarts." Then there was butter to churn, bread to bake, she had sometimes helped with cultivating and all the washing and ironing far her family with seven children. Five were daughters, and as she says, "I stood two days and ironed.'' The seven children grew up and eventually Mr. and Mrs. Juhl moved into the modern house on Third Avenue South, where they celebrated their golden anniversary in 1959, two years before Mr. Juhl died. One of the daughters has died now also. The other six children, with her 14 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren now look after Mrs. Juhl with daily visits, attending to odd jobs and errands, and frequent letters from those away. But the feeling never really left her that she must be doing for the comfort of her family. Thus, since living alone, Mrs. Juhl has turned to making quilts-thick, soft, bright-colored coverings, smoothly pieced together in all the old favorite patterns. Last July a daughter came with a large plastic sack stuffed full of scraps and in the past five months five quilts have been finished. The last few have been in simple checkerboard design, because as 83-year-old Mrs. Juhl says, "I don't see the best. Sometimes I have to poke quite awhile before 1 get my needle threaded. On her old treadle sewing machine, she sews the pieces into blocks and then the blocks together. In the basement she has standards and frame for quilting and sets them up and pins the quilt top herself. Her daughter, Mrs. Ryan Hoffmeyer, comes over to help place the batting and back. After that, Mrs. Juhl explains, "I can go down for an hour at a time, tieing it. 1 use the pliers to pull the needle through." When asked how many quilts, Mrs. Hoffmeyer began to calculate — each of the children has so many and then- Mrs. Juhl broke in anxiously, "Don't say too much, that would be bragginV She makes them only for the family, she adds. "It gives me something to do. I can't sit just in space and do nothin'."

Close Piano Cover By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY—and Becky—Every piano I have ever seen has a cover for the keys, so close it and your dog cannot jump on the keys. Then merely discipline the dog by GENTLY 7 spanking him with a rolled-up news- paperif he jumps up on the piano lid.—BARBARA DEAR DOLLY—My Pet Peeve is in the form of a suggestion to authors and book publishers. When unusual names and places appear in a book I do wish we could have a phonetic pronunciation list printed either in the front or back of the book. Some authors have names which even various librarians pronounce differently. Thornton Wilder is pronounced "wild" and Robert Wilder pronounced "willed." Also, when maps are printed to aid in visualizing the area written about they are often printed on the inside of the book cover just where the librarian pastes down protective jackets or the library stamping date and the card envelope. This makes it impossible to study the map as one reads.—V. S. MILLER'S ReSale Burt, Iowa 50622 \t price sale continues with best buys around. Shop now while selections are still complete.
