In 1910, a year later, her dream was realized, when with the help of Spokane's YMCA and the Spokane Ministerial Association, all the ministers of Spokane preached Father's Day sermons--I on the thrid Sunday of June.]  (Mrs. Dodd had preferred the first[  Sunday of June, her Father'sl k k birthday that year, but the ser-[ kl ....... mons could not be simultaneously1 ,, "lltl J MRS. JOHN BRUCE DODD, MOTHER OF FATHER'S DAY DIES AT 96 Mrs. John Bruce Dodd, who conceived the idea of Father's Day in 1909, died in Spokane, Washington, her home town, on March 22, 1978. She had celebrated her 96th birthday on February 18. Active in the Fatherhood Movement until a few years ago, Mrs. Dodd, born Sonora Smart, had been in failing health for the past three years. She had been an active business woman, artist and poet. She is survived by her son, John Bruce*Dodd, Jr., a former executive in the U.S. Forestry Service, from which he retired about 10 years ago. National Holiday, to be cele- brated always on the third Sunday n June. Early on, William Jennings 3ryan, the great populist, recog- nized the value o1 observing a Father's Day. A few years later, his declaratory position was echoed by President Wilson. Then, in 1924, President Coolidge urged observance of Father's Day as a national celebration. William Smart, a Civil War veteran, died in 1919, but not be- fore he saw the holiday his devo- tion and love for his family had inspired, become a growing reality throughout the United States. Today, Father's Day is observed in more than thirty (30) countries around the world, and the spread of its appeal is growing conta- giously. Father's Day became a National Holiday by act of Congress in 1972, and the enabling legislation !provides for a Presidential Procla- mation every year. In that year, the State of Washington delcared a "Mrs. John Bruce Dodd Day" to mark th e .legislative national- izing of her dream to honor The American Father. Mrs. John Bruce Dodd was 96, on February 18, 1978. She passed away on March 22, after several years of declining health. But, all the world will long remember that her vision to honor Father has be- come a symbol of family solidar- ity and unity.

John Molin, an Amoco product man- ager, says the program, adminis- tered by the National 4-H Co- operative Extension Service, was formed originally to help farm youths repair and maintain petro- leum-powered farm equipment. The program now includes city kids, too," says Molin. "Some of these students even have their own businesses repair- ing and maintaining this equip- ment.

Most fires can be pre- vented. But should fire strike, lives can be saved by early warning devices that are prop- erly installed, tested and maintained. The National Safety Council reports that in a re- cent year about one-fifth of all home accident deaths 5,100 out of a total of 25,500--resulted from fires. turns, asphyxiation and re- lated causes. For young people 9-19 in the national 4-H safety pro- gram, these statistics point to the need for continuing fire .safety education for them- selves, their families and their communities. Boys and girls enrolled in 4-H safety projects and activi- ties learn-by-doing about fire control methods. They in- spect and rid their homes of trash, papers and other com- bustibles. 4-H members check to see that flammable liquids are stored in sturdy metal.con- tainers, and that electrical wiring and equipment are kept in top condition. And they educate their families to the vital importance Of instal- ling smoke and fire alarms. Fire safety is only one emphasis" in the 4-H safety program. The program en- courages young people to de- velop and practice safety skills in all areas of their daily lives: at home and on the farm, on the highway and during recreation, and as an integral part of all 4-tt proj- ects. Lie down and be counted. :2 President Jimmy Car In America, 3% of the people give 100% of all the blood that's freely donated. Which means that if only 1% more people- maybe you-became donors, it would add over thirty percent more blood to America's voluntary bloodstream. Think of it! But forget arithmetic. Just concentrate on one word. The word is Easy. Giving blood is easy. You hardly feel it (in fact, some people say they feel better physically after a blood donation). And, of course, everybody feels better emotionally. Because it's a great feeling knowing your one easy blood donation has helped up to five other people to live. So how about it, 1% of America? Are you going to lie down and be counted? Red is OCt
