Back to college with the three sons I still had with me after WWlI but while my sons were growing up, I wrote news for the old Stillwater Gazette, under the tutelage of Edwin H. Brown. In 1938 I was named "Champion Writer of Rural News in America" in a contest conducted by Coun- try Home magazine, a CroweU publication.

You, readers have seen my columns in the CRN, the Perkins Journal and other publications sometimes. Of them all, I like the Journal best. The Perkins Journal represents the best of editorial responsibility to its readers. The Journal carries a balanced ration of news stories that challenge the best performance in living of every reader. Down to earth honesty, basic decency, reverence, the best of humor. Ideals of the highest are presented with- out preaching. Right living is upheld in a way that we know is within the reach of every person. It is a privilege and an honor to be a correspondent for the Journal, a publication that informs, interests and pleases many readers. I say these things in deep sincerity. Sincerely, respectfully yours, Edna Eaton Wilson Funeral services were held at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday in the Church of Christ at Ames for Bert Dryden who died Sunday, April 3 in Enid.

Mr. and Mrs Walter Harmon are planning to move to a new home east of Diamond Valley located on a portion of what is known locally as "The old Tony Dean place." Dale Carothers has been building the house for the Walter Harmons. When the formica chip hit Dale's eye. Dale thought little of the incident, and consented to see a physician only after his wife Viva became alarmed. The time was late in the day when it is difficult to obtain the services of a physician. Viva Carothers called Walter Harmon whose work keeps him in touch with various technicians. "Dale's got something in his eye and needs a doctor." Viva announced. "Bring him in," com- forted Walter. "We'll find somebody!" When the Ca- rothers arrived at Harmon's office Walter and Dr. Garnier were waiting. Infec- tion had set in on Dale's eye, but under the Dr's minister- ing Dale is now making steady recovery.
