My mother, Sybil did most of the work on the scrapbook. I had worked on the FFA record books. Some of my projects were beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine and field crops. The: materials were turned in at the FFA office in the state Vo-Tech building just west of where Stillwater Medical Center is now. To fill out the application, we borrowed a big standard L.C. Smith typewriter from Earnest and Lillian Westfall, our neighbors. The typewriter was a good one and it was similar to the Smith-Corona typewriters in the typing room at Perkins High School. The Westfall family had this type- writer because their daughters, Wilma and Edna studied typing and shorthand in high school and attended business college. The typewriter had elite type; which had ten letters to thel inch, whereas the Wall family typewriter was pica which had; eight letters to the inch. Elite', was better for filling out forms: and applications. We got the material ready and! turned it in.
