8-The Journal, Thursday, March 101 1977 Sr. Citizens Center having Birthday March 18 Rites are held for Lou Hart The Rev. Van Nickels announced that there will be an anniversary celebration on Friday, March 18, at the Senior Citizen Center. The occasion marks the first anniversary for Perkins residents. l'he building originally was the Payne County garage which housed county equipment to be repaired• In the latter part of December, the building was turned over to the Senior Citizen group. Shortly after it was contract- ed work began and the Center became ready for activity on March 19, 1976. At this time. board members were elected and by-laws were drawn up. New board members will be elected the evening of March 18 for the coming year, but the exact time has not yet been determined. Immediately after the Senior Citizens were organ- ized, work, money, and time were donated by interested citizens of the Perkins community, and the entire interior was re-done. Two new pool tables were installed, two refrigerators, an electric cook stove, and more recently a large and small kiln. Also, a new public address system, two speak- ers, three microphones and an amplifier has been purchased. These are a great asset to the regular Monday night entertainment provid- ed by area residents which make up the western band. In addition, the building is completely carpeted throughout with available rest rooms, smoking room, and three air conditioners. The anniversary celebra- tion will be held at the regular luncheon time, the third Friday of the month.

Also, when shaving or • washing at a basin, don't leave the water running. That just wastes hot water you have to pay for. Faucets -- If your faucets leak, repair them quickly, One drop each second adds up to 200 gallons each month. That's a lot of hot water down the drain! c::,. : ,, , ili Washing -- Always try to wash a.full load. This saves both hot water and electricity. If you must wash a partial load, be sure to select a water level to fit the amount of clothes. Whenever possible, use cold water with cold water detergents. This helps you avoid needless overwashing wherever cold water washing can do an adequate job. Temperatures -- Setting the water heater thermostat between 150-160 degrees will give you the required water temperature for dishwashers and laundry. Drying -- Don't overdry your clothes. Not only does it waste electricity, it also sets wrinkles in the clothes. Clean the lint filter after each load. Be sure your vent is to the outside to save on air conditioning. Electricity works hard for you all over the house. Use it correctly and you will get even more done -- for less. CENTRAL RURAL ELECTRIC O.OPERATIVE D. J.

Fast from resentment, and feast on contentment. Fast from jealousy, and feast on love. Fast from pride and feast on humility. Fast from selfishness and feast on service. Fast from fear and feast on faith. (Copied) Mrs. Thora Cundiff re- ported that she, Mrs. Grace Hudgens and Mrs. Francis Burton attended County Council, Feb. 17.
