Mrs. Heath speaks here Women's Council of the Christian Church held their regular monthly meeting, March 16 at 1:30 p.m. Meeting opened with group singing "I Am Thine, O Lord." Prayer was given by Mae Vassar. After a short business meeting, Aletha Coldsmith, president introduced the guest speaker, Mrs. Marilyn Heath, and presented her with a corsage. Mrs. Heath gave a very interesting and informative talk on India. She told of how she had studied the history of India, and then demonstrated how to put on a sad. She pointed out the mountains, plains and pla- teaus on a map. She told us that civilization started along the Indies River, and showed where the first wheat and cotton were grown. She spoke of the hundreds of caste systems and how many religions have floui- shed there, with the excep- tion of Christianity. Many missionaries have gone there but only two precent of the population are Chris- tians. They started trading with the Britians in the 1800's. She showed several small YHO Club meets The Perkins chapter of Y.H.O held its monthly meeting Monday evening in the Home Economics cott- age. The regular business meeting was held during which Virginia Sasser, Per- kins Home Economics teac- her and Y.H.O. advisor agreed to be the Y.H.O. Representative for the Town "100" Meeting Saturday. After the business meet- ing was adjourned, refresh- ments, provided by Janet Trybom, Sharla Drake and Barbara Tarelton, were served. The ladies followed a St. Patrick's Day theme with the lovely green and white refreshments and table, decorations. Debbie Strickland of the Nimble Timble provided the program. She introduced a relatively new product on the market, serving patterns which contain 3 sizes in one pattern envelope.

Mrs. Strickland also dis- cussed and demonstrated how to change the look of a basic pattern by changing the collar or sleeve style. She also demonstrated the var- ious features and stitches of a Beinina sewing machine. The program was very interesting and informative and was enjoyed by 10 members and 6 guests, Elaine Gardner and Lou Ann Area members attend annual Delta Kappa Gamma convention Delta Kappa Gamma, a society for women educators held its 43rd annual state convention March 11-13 at the Skirvin Plaza Hotel, Oklahoma City.

By Edna Eaton Wilson Price predictions on cotton now are that by harvest time next fall, lint cotton possibly could be bringing as much as 87 cents to 92 cents per pound. Figuring wheat yield at the 30 bushel per acre average, and the price at $2.50 per bushel, which is very optimistic considering that we have enough wheat on hand now to supply our food needs for at least three years besides a surplus to sell on the world market, the gross cash return on an acre of wheat can be reasonably estimated at some where near $82 an acre. Average cotton yield c an safely be expected to be three-fourths of a bale per acre, or 375 pound of lint per acre. figuring 60 cents per pound of lint, the gross cash yield per acre of cotton can be expected to be approxi- Perkins cemetery association elects The Perkins Cemetery Association held it's annual meeting Wednesday March 16 in the Perkins Lions Den. The board members whose term expired were voted back on the board to serve another two years. One board member whose term expires next year resigned and Pat Cameron was voted in to take his place. It was voted by the members present that the Cemetery Association would serve Memorial Day Dinner, in the Perkins Lions Den if it is available on that date. The exact place will be announ- ced later. Also, the board is ready to start the building of the tool shed and rest room building in the very near future so it will be ready before Memo- rial Day. The Board is asking any person that is available to help with the building in donations or labor to contact, "Si" Blumer, or any of the other board members. mately $220. These yields are not wild either. This writer has known a number of fields of cotton that have yielded a bale and a half per acre of cotton year after year. Granted this was fertile land, but wheat, cotton, corn and alfalfa all are produced on fertile land. Given the advantages we have now of better farming methods, weed control, soil conditioning, fertilizers and pesticides, it is not wishful thinking to expect huge yields. There is a way to change from wheat to cotton even this year. Pasturing off the wheat growth, using some dry hay to feed the cattle before turning into the fields to control bloat and other digestive troubles in the cattle, fast and profitable gains can be realized on the wheat as feed. Then the land can be plowed and smoothed into planting condition be- fore time to plant which here is from the 1st to the 25th of May, ideally. Yes, there is time to realize a profit on your wheat, and still harvest a much more profitable crop of cotton this year. This writer_personally has seen one field of c otton that was planted on upland as late as the 8th day of June that yielded 800 to 900 pounds of seed cotton per acre. That was, we will admit due to exceptionally lucky weather conditions for in that day and time nobody knew about any fertilizer for field crops other than barnyard manure, but the facts are as stated. There will be a meeting of those farmers and others who are interested in keeping the Glencoe gin open for the 1977 season. In fact some are interested in forming a cotton co-operative with farmers buying shares in the gin its e!f. This cotton meeting is called for Thursday evening March 24, in Glencoe. If you are interested in seeing Pavne county prosper agri- culturally come to the cotton meeting this Thursday night. Bill Cavett, who farms east of Glencoe says he is planting 110 acres of cotton this spring. Diamond Valley Music festival will be held at the community building on Fri- day March 25.

She told of how they refuse to kill animals, reptiles or insects. They use many different dialects and lightly give percent are illiterate. She emphasized the fact that in spite of all this it is not all squalor and filth. She showed slides of many beautiful scenes and build- ings, including the Taj Mahal. She also showed slides of many beautiful works of art. She gave a very fascinat- ing description of this almost unknown land and remarked that she hoped to go back some day.
