— by Ann Umders —- ANN LANDERS: I've been going with Mervyn for three years. We are 1 not officially engaged but I am expecting a ring on my 22nd birthday which falls next April. . Mst inontfa Mervyn won a trip to London in a sales contest. I was very proud of him because I know how hard he worked. I know, too, he was up against some mighty stiff competition. Mervyn said he would be too busy to write but he promised to bring me a nice gift: Last night he came to the bouse, straight from the airport. The first thing he said was, "Here's your gift, honey. Mrs. G use man Reviews History Of Volga German Mrs. EArl E. Griggs and Mrs. Ralph Powers were guests of Progressive Readers Club Wednesday evening in the home of Mrs* Dale Eddblute, 1706 N. Srd. Thirteen members were present ' Mrs: Flossie 'Guseman rer viewed "Copquering tbe Wind," by Amy,Brungardt Toepfer and Agnes C. preillhg. Mrs. Toepfer is a first generation American descendant of the Volga Germans who came to Kansas in the mid 1970s. The book is a factual history of those people, who opened two frontiers to civilization —the Volga River region of Russia, and tbe High Plains of the United States. The story, said Mrs. Guseman, is valuable not only to descendants of these intrepid pioneers, but to any student of American history. The book records courage, loyalty of strong families and strong conviction, to endure persecution, suffering and danger with equal fortitude. It is 1 record of which these descendants can be proud. : Bertha Yoxall read three poems, "Happiness", "Lady My Age", and "Time I» Spring."

"I was so. excited [was actually shaking. I could not believe it when I opened my; eye g and saw the clump of dirt lie had placed in the palm of my hand. "It's; genuine British soil," he sighed. "I couldn't .) take you to London so I : brought London to you!' I managed to say, "Thank ' you, dear" but I had a bard lime concealing my disappointment, Ann. Dp you think I am materialistic and unsentimental because I was expecting something more gift-like? — DOWN TO EARTH Dear Down: Mervyn wins another prize — one for ingenuity. A clump of dirt i s an unusual gift, to say the least. Furthermore, it is something a person can pick up at the last minute and bring in duty free. It would have been nice, however, if the big sport had taken the time to go into one of those lovely British .shops and purchased a small token of his affection. It needn't have been costly, mind you, just a little something with a ribbon around it; * * '.* DEAR ANN LANDERS: I had a fight with my sister-in- law and decided to iet her knoyp exactly how I felt. So I sat down and wrote a 10-page letter — a real blockbuster. 1 reviewed all .the petty things she ha s done to me in the last 10 years. It took me three hours to write that letter and then I walked to the mailbox and mailed it. ' When I got to bed I couldn't sleep. I kept thinking maybe. I should not have written some of those things. I remembered the times she helped me out when my kids were sick and how she was the first one at the house when my husband was hurt at the factory. After a few miserable hours I decided I had been too hard on her and the letter .was out of line. So I put on my clothes at 2:00 a.m. and walked to the mailbox to see when the next pjck-up would be. It said 7:20. The next morning I was at the box at 7:20 to get the letter back but the postman wouldn't give it to me. I argued till I was blue in the face but he refused. Well, Ann, my sister-in-law received the letter and that ended our friendship. I blame the postman. He could have been a good fellow and given me tiie* letter If he wanted to. What is your opinion? — DALLAS •- . .' •..• _-:,...-• , * • *- "' ,' '•: Dea r Dallas: The postman could also, have been fired for being a "good feDow.' 1 All letters become the property of the postal authorities ;once they are dropped in the box. Actually, 'it is Sometimes ' possible* to - retrieve a letter ty filling put "a forin at the Post Office. But the best thing to do with a letter written in r anger is to drop it in a drawer, not a mailbox. Re-read it after 2 hours, and if you still want to mail it, go ahead.

But even if the theologians should reach absolute agreement on every point, Christian unity would get nowhere without harmony among all people on the street level. "We must understand each other personally and work together at the street level. Women's activities can be one of the most effective means oi producing Christian unity when their purpose is to gain under* standing and cooperation among peoples of all faiths."
