Church II the 1940's, the table was small. about 24 inches two trays with puice wee set Was set up on the long. At that time Luster Stokes was the minister. He and his wife Geraldine lived at Glen- coo and they would drive to Olivet each Sunday to teach and preach. One Sunday morning Luster pointed out to the congregation that the communion table was Full getting old. It was shaky, and it had some scratches and blem- ishes on it. He said that even though we don't know the day nor the hour when Jesus will return, Luster was of the opinion that it would be on a Sunday morning, the Lord's Day. We would be better prepared for Jesus' return, if we had a nice communion table. The next week some of the members of the church went to a furniture store, and a nice new communion table was in place the next Sunday. The third communion table was at the Perkins Christian Church. The top was 28 inches by 46 inches. There was a small drawer in it, and in the drawer there was a book of blank counter checks, in case some- one forgot to bring their check book for the offering. In those days personalized and coded checks were not required. Cecil Shaffer was chairman of the church board. Lenore West was church treasurer. In 1969, the Vassar family presented the church a beauti- ful new communion table in memory of I.D. Vassar. Before his passing, Mr. Vassar saw the need for a new communion table. The table is still in use.

Then we :: came home and it ended one of the most happy days of my life. i Originally published March 27, It Is not often that I have had as much real pleasure as I had last Thursday fore-noon and all on account of the kindness of Mrs. McClain, who took me to the WKY broadcasting and TV studio at the City. I was always afraid of lady drivers, but we had not gone only a few miles till I felt at ease and began to enjoy the ride. Mrs. McClain knows all the rules of driving and drives perfectly and at moderate speed. If she ever has an accident I'I1 bet a jug of but- termilk it will be the other driver's fault. We drove past Rolla Goodnight's place in Guthrie and stopped a few moments in Edmond and talked to Brother McCown and then on down to the TV station. We were met by Mrs. Thomas who gave us a cup of coffee after which we went to a dressing room and from there to the TV room. There were some brilliant lights and enough machinery to sink a battleship. We sat on a divan and talked and Mrs. Thomas read exWacts from the book. When it was all over my old friend Claud Seymore of the Crime Bureau and a crowd of other boys gathered and we visited till a lady came and said that some lady wished to talk to me on the phone. Mrs. Thomas called and I talked to her. She was the daughter of my old friend with whom I used to ride the line from Baxter Springs to Caldwell. It was sure like old times to talk to her. Then we were shown all through the building. There are machines in there that 1952.
