This of officers of the Charles Town use ideas and skills that had been helps us to grow ourselves and gained from attending club meet- ings, craft schools and demon- stration meetings where new eq- uipment and processes were tau- ght by specially trained persons. There were fiften members present who each agreed that her home was definitely improved by these opportunities to learn how to make the best use of materials and furnishings already on hand and how to make the wisest pur- chases, if new equipment or fur- nishings was the order of the day. Their comments ran in this wise "I had two pieces of antique fur- niture th~lt I loved but did not enjoy looking at because of the treatment they had had during the years. I felt that my family did not appreciate and enjoy them either, so when a workship for refinishing furniture was of- fered I took the smaller piece and there recerated a work of art. Now even the children say, "Mo- ther, how beautiful the wood and the lines of that chest are. It is a joy to look at." Another member added, "Oh yes, rye made several stools and caned some chairs that are so very comfortable and beautiful to look at. I jdst couldn't buy any that would give me the satis- faction or fill the corners as those do." One member contributed her most valued experience in home improvement by saying, "Well, the kitchen, bedroom, and living room improvement projects that I Caperton I had help with from lessons and Brothers instructions booklets has made I~n my home so much more attract- ive and liveable that I want to tell Hardware Co. / every woman what she is missing by not belonging to our club."

One of them put it this way, "Since I have rearran- ged some of my old paintings and added some new ones and improv- ed the entrance to our home, I feel like I'm looking at a pretty picture which I have painted i S " with living th ng. The older members listened to the enthusiastic comments and ~ experiences mentioned above and one very quietly said "All these things have meant much to us to as we have sought to improve our surroundings, but now I wonder if perhaps the greatest improve- ment to my home hasn't been the the improvement in the home maker. I know that as a result of some of the books I've read in our purposeful reading program and some of the ideas I've gained from lessons on "Family Recreat- ion" and "Happy Family Relation ships," not to mention the situat ion shared with fellow club mem bers, I am a broaded, happier and better adjusted wife and mother". This, brought into focus a new fine eft thought and there were quick responses of "Yes, that goes for me too. I can always cook a a better supper and plan a more purposeful day when I know that it's club meeting day and my hus band will let me out of the "holl- er" once a month anyway." Finally, it seemed that this member more or less summarized the personal improvement and en richment that comes as a result of membership in a wide-awake club when she said, "Club work f/f,.

There is only one YOU in all the world-make the most of YOU in every way.

Pond On George Hough Farm Was Big Help In Fighting Barn Fire According to firemen on the sceno the pond built hv Mr. Geo- ~rge Hough in Nov. 1958 was a big !ldp in Iighting the fire on his farm Monday morning. The pond about 300 feet from Having a good supply handy made it possible for those fight- ing the fire to confine it to the barn area. Lacking a water sup- ply several other buildings would have been lost including two sil- os and the milk room next to the barn. George Cole, Soil Conservation Service technician says that when the pond was built it was design- ed to be about six feet deep and hold approximately 244,300 gal- lons. While most ponds put in by the Soil Conservation Service are for use by livestock they also furnish excellent fire protection and it is a good idea to let the fire com pany serving you know where your pond or water supply is loca ted.

Whether you like it or not, children do fol- low in their parents' Johnny learns that kindness and courtesy are virtues, because you are kind and courteous. He learns to love good books and music, because love them. He learns, through your example, to speak truthfully.

THIS ADVERTISEMENT SPONSORED BY THE IN SUPPORT OF THE CHURCHES OF sponsored April 22 and April 23 by the Shenandoah-Potomac Gar- den Council, reports the tour one of the best, though she lacked final figures for the two days. Figures refer to attendance and thus to proceeds, which are applied to the cost of furnishing the Harper House in the Harpers Ferry National Monument. Success of the tour was twofold in respect to total attendance and with regard to "foreigners" making the tour, those not res- idents of Berkeley and Jefferson counties. In this respect 200 of the more than 300 visiting "Boyd ville" were from a distance-as far away as France. * Mrs. Riely expressed extreme gratitude for the cooperation of so many persons in making the tour the success it was.

ALL FOR THE CHURCH "l~le Church is the greatest factor on earth for the bui]ding of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. "There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. f3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support.
