Homemaken Hear Of Iceland From Mrs. Yvonne Moran The Leetown Extension Homemakers Club met on Wednesday, July 19, at 1:30 at the home of Mrs. K. K. Cavalier in Harpers Ferry. Seventeen members and two visitors were present. The devotions were given by Mrs. Margaret Harris reading on "Trust" taken from various verses from Mark, closing with the Lord's Prayer. The lesson on Iceland was given by Mrs. Yvonne Moran. She said Iceland was declared a republic in 1944 and only one- fifth of the land is inhabited. The climate is cool and the tem- rature averages 30 to 50 degrees. The winters are long and dark and the summers short. It is called the "Land of the Midnight Sun." Ice'land's closest neighbor is Greenland. It has many waterfalls and hot springs and their homes are heated by hot water from the natural springs. Icelanders eat mostly fish and lamb. In the Cod War, because of the 200 mile limit for fishing rights, Iceland has fought Great Britain. When the women marry, they keep their own name. As a method of saving, most Icelanders invest in property. At the conclusion of the lesson, the business was conducted by the pesident.
