"Home Builders have lesson on smiling or frown- ing pants." The lesson on pants was given by Carol Jo Costner when the Home Builders Home Ex. Club met for their regular March 2nd meeting at OakDale. She emphasized the im- portance of having them fit correctly. The shape of te individual, the length of the pants can control how you look such as slender, short, or just plain sloppy. Members were measured and their needs to alter patterns discussed. Roll call was answered by telling the style of pants you wore when a teenager. Nine members answered and it was a very interesting roll call. Years ago it was a disgrace to be seen in public wearing your father's over- alls, but today pant suits are worn by everyone in all walks of life. Mimmie Bieberdorf gave the devotion on "whether women should wear mas. culine clothes". To prove her point, she read several Bible verses and an old English poem. The Bread and Cake show was reportecL by the members who attended it. The Educational tour is June 8th. The Safety Committee reported on safety precaution in the home and on the road. The social hour followed, Helen Allen drew the penny prize and refreshments were served by Belle. Vernon Bruce and Vern VanBebber were callers at the F.A. Whitmore home Saturday. Wes Thurman is new merchant at Carney West Thurman, local resident announces he has bought Don Wilson's Gro- cery and Gas Station (Carney Grocery) south of Carney Bank on Highway 177. He will be closing out some of the old stock in order to make way for a convenient type store open each day of the year. The store will also remain open longer hours, especially through the sum- mer to accomodate the farmers of the surrounding area. The self-service gas sta- tion is an attempt to save the customer money, but there will be an attendent to help the ladies become ac- quainted with the pumps, as well as a demonstration for all customer's benefit. Thurman plans a Grand Opening in the near future. As an OSU graduate in the School of Agronomy, he is familiar with the farmer's problems and needs. He has been in custom farming and big roll hay baling. His wife teaches school at Luther. The couple has two daughters, Stacy and Jonnell, who are in the Perkins school. The Thurmans have been back in this area for the past two and one-half years. They cordi- ally invite all area residents to come in and get acquainted with their new neighbors. Glenwood Cemetery Association will meet Saturday The annual meeting of the Glenwood Cemetery Asso- ciation met at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, at the High Prairie Community Center.

Sizes 8 - 20 REGISTB FOR DOOR PKIZES Heavy equipment came in handy when these 60 foot light poles were set in the ground at the new park Saturday morning. Jaycees and other volunteers provided the elbow grease. Letter to the Editor Dear Sir, On March 3, there was a premium sale at the fair- grounds in conjunction with the fat stock show. This was our first exper- ience with this type of sale. We were artazed! It was wonderful to see the support given to our young people by the leaders of this area. Lidies KNEE HIGH HOSE The Journal, Thursday, March I0, 1977-7 Park Lights Go Up All the communities did a great job, but Perkins was head and shoulders above the rest. It makes a person proud to be part of such a community. May we say to all the help, so much, many "thanks." Pete Schroeder and family Bill McDaniel, Park and Recreation Committee mem- ber and Bud Redus in charge of construction met with Jaycees and several inte- rested area residents Satur- day to install nine 90 foot lights in the Bill Dickson Memorial Park. Each pole has 21 lights. These were originally on the school grounds and were trans- ferred to the park through mutual consent by both parties. Heavy equipment was brought in for this work made possible by local volunteers. Of major concern other than the remaining work to be done on the park, the committee is interested in getting coaches for the boys and girls little league ball teams. Bob Dickson and Bill McDaniel are coordinating this project. They announce plans for a meeting March 17, Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. at the City Hall. All persons interested in coach- ing a team are urged to attend this meeting. Grady Gardner, committee member, said 1978 plans for the Park and Recreation Board include a new picnic pavilion and meeting room, and walkways. The $27,000 project which is matched by the federal government (BOR) is possible due to much of the labor being donated by the Perkins community and civic leaders. The town council and P-T school board will be in discussion regarding four and one-half acres of school land known as Emerson Park located in the southwest part of town between the cemetery land rodeo gr- ounds. The town would like to clean up this area for a "kiddie park." No develop- ment is planned but merely maintance which involves little more than the town is already obligated to do. The matter has been discussed with Shelby Wy- att, school superintendent, who has already voiced his agreement pending the approval of the school board to give the city access to the area. However, Winfrey Houston, town attorney advised that the agreement be worked out on a yearly contract basis in order to avoid any legal problems. Local Mr. and Mrs. H.T. Henderson from Broken Bow visited Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Grimm from Saturday noon to Sunday morning.
