PAGE FOUR FARM BUREAU WOMEN STUDY 4TH LESSON [• New Ways in Care of Mothers and Babes are Taught. The homo project leaders of Greenwood and Ramsey townships met at the Bancroft public school- louse last week Thursday to study the fourth child care and training lesson, Now Ways in Mother-Baby Care. Ways of safe-guarding the health and well being of mothers and intents through proper medical care, diet, and health practices were discussed. Lists of materials and '. articles nee-dad for minimum and ! more adequate layettes wore considered. Samples of infant gar-' ments wore shown to the women, ! and patterns for a kick-proof baby blanket and front-opening infants' dresses were provided for leaders who are to pass on the lesson. Next day, Friday. Ifi homo project leaders and members attended .a training school for Ledyard and Lincoln townships at. Mrs. J. H. Holcomb's. Mrs. Holcomb is township chairman. Mr.s. Tnrt Wnllen- tino added greatly to interest, in the_ display of infant clothes by'ex- hibiting her christening dross. Other I raining schools wore dated for the month as follows: Tuosilav. Feb. S—Port land- Burt, at Mrs. Ted Rintrsdorf's. Wednesday. Feb. !) — Whilie- more-Carfield. at Mr.s. P. J. Fuchsen's. Thursday. Feb. 10—Prnirie-Trv- Jnglon, at Mrs. John Weber's. AVodnnsday, Feb. Ifi — Plum Yes, Sir, We Can Raise Cotton in Good OP Kossuth Cotton is a southern product. It requires warm weather and can't be grown to maturity in the north. So say the experts. But Matt Kelley, of Rich Point, has his doubts. He knows o£ at least one boll—if that's the name — "which matured right hero in Kossuth. And 'he has the evidence to prove it. Last May Mr. Kelley planted some cotton seed—or whatever it is that the cotton farmers plant—in a flower pot in the house. The seed germinated, and the cotton grew and flourished till he had 19 bolls of cotton, one of which ho brought to town the other day as an exhi'bit. Mr. Kelle-y has a friend at Oskaloosa, or near there, who wanted to know how the cotton experiment came out, so Mr. Kolley has sent to him a small bale put up just like the southern cotton farmers bale their product. Falls Off a Pony; Found I Lone Rock, Feb. S—Earl Swan, ;son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Swan, I suffered a peculiar accident last |week Tuesday night at the school j grounds, after basketball games. | He mounted his pony to return , home, but was later found a block away in the road unconscious. The •saddle presumably slipped and the boy secin.s to have boon dragged i for some distance, as there were j dec]) scratches in his boots from ^hc gravel. He was taken to the I doctor at Fenton. and head and TEMPERANCE FILM TO BE SHOWN HERE Mrs. Jurgen C. Skow, of Wesley, county W. C. T. U. president, writes that The Beneficient Reprobate, a motion picture film tolling the story of ethyl alcohol, beneficent in industry but a reprobate when taken into the body, is about to be shown at various points in the county. The film begins with the ancient alchemist discovering alcohol by distillation, and this has led to many commercial uses of alcohol in our time. The third reel is most interesting. Five students In the Northwestern university medical school at Chicago were selected for alcohol tests to measure effects on the cerebro-spinal nervous system. The same tests were made before and after 1% ounces of alcohol had been taken into the system. The results are shown just as (pictures were taken of the boys. Every effort was made to make the pictures authentic. The effects were eye-openers to the teaching staff and students alike. The last reel presents a present- day busy street scene with its hazards to a driver who has had a drink or two, and contrasts this with glimpses of the Olympic games at Berlin in 1936. This picture will bo shown at the Algona Presbyterian church next Tuesday evening at 7 o'clock.' jAn offering will be taken to defray expenses. » '— African Traveler Lectures at Burt Fenton, Feb. 8—James Roger, son born to Mr. and Mrs. Walter Pert!
