This year they had a very good parade in fact it was the largest one I can remember. Everyone seem to enjoy the many food booths, game booths, the arts and cafts displays, the free bar-b-que, fiddler's contest, street dance and teen dance. Plus the children had a full day with water guns and squirt bottles. It was a beautiful spring day for us this year which made it great for the Rodeo and the children games in the park and the horseshoe pitching contest. A lot of hard work was done by all too few people. I don't know any class, club or organization that couldn't have used a lot more helping hands had they been offered. Thank God we still have enough people (young and old) that have enough self respect and pride to pitch in and get this thing done. But out town is no different than any other that has people full of fancy words and ideas which is great but with out the action to go along with them. You still have what you started with "Nothing" and I might add because you gave an hour of your time six months ago by no means ends there. If you have doubts, "share" is full defined in the dictio- Y , nary. I m sure glad Mr. Webster when writing that dictionary didn't decide he had done his share with just the idea or all of man kind would be short of a few million words and their meanings. So the next time someone asks for your help whether it be your family, friends, town, country or world, ask yourself one question, am I doing, my share or am I too selfish to share? PARADE THEME This years parade theme was "We've Come Along Way". The floats all did an outstanding job expressing their ideas. The Ripley students had some very good floats which an awful lot of young folks put in a lot of work on so I want to try to name them all, I'll just say you all made a lot of parents and teachers and towns people happy to say thats our kids. The Chamber of Commerce had a nice float which was built by Don Sneed, Rick Baker, Don Mattox, Ruby Baker, Vicki Watts and Elaine Garmen. The Payne County Civil Defence Units did them- selves proud as did everyone else who entered the parade. I'm sorry I did not have the pleasure of seeing each entry NOW OPEN PERKINS DRUG 246 S.

But in any case the Student Council and Ripley Town Council, Chamber of Commerce, Ripley Fire Dept. VFW and Lions wish to say thanks to each and every entry of the parade and hope to see you back next year. It would be impossible to name each person who gave their service on Pioneer Day. As per usual Sheriff Frank Phillips and the Sheriff's Posse were on hand. They are a grand group of men and are always ready to help us when we need them. We thank you again for another job well done. Also doing a fine job were the Cushing Auxiliary Policemen and our Ripley Deputies. All I can say is its great to know these men are on hand when they're needed and their pay is knowing they have helped themselves by helping ot- hers. It was also a pleasure to see Mr. Joe Manning, Mr. Robert Murphy, Mr. Ulysses Cruzan and Retired Deputy Sheriff Harry McKnight. To Larry Eslinger who put in many long hours working with the school and the town getting this Pioneer Day put together, we can only say Larry there aren't enough words to express how happy we are to have you back in Ripley with the School system. I understand there will be a meeting soon to start plans for next years Pioneer Day. With the hopes of starting early it will ease the last minute work load. EASTER EGG HUNT There was an Easter Egg Hunt at the track field for kids of all ages. There were prize eggs. The hunt was sponsored by the Ripley Chamber of Commerce, Ripley Lions Club, Ripley Cafe, The Shop and Get Quik. There was a sum of 110 pound of eggs for the children to enjoy. Vice President, Rick Baker of the Ripley Chamber of Com- merce expressed his thanks to those who donated their money and time. Those people spent a lot of time wrapping those eggs they are Vicki Watts, Clydene Lemon, Ruby Baker, Jeanne Osborn, Doris Dodion, J.O. Dogion and Elaine Garmen and many others who help get the eggs out. I might add Mrs. Lemon is a member of the Chamber of Commerce (Ripley) but lives in Monette, Mo., so she and Jeanne Osborn came down from Monette to help out with Pioneer Day. Elaine Garmen once again did a lot to help as she did with the C of C Pancake Supper earlier this year. Somebody's missing the boat by not getting her for a Chamber of Commerce Member. Cancer Drive is said to be a success We would like to take this opportunity to thank every- one who has helped with the Cancer Drive this year. We are in sight of our goal for the Cancer Crusade this year (as of Monday, 11th, our contributions totaled $966.78) and we are urging everyone who hasn't given as yet to join other generous citizens in fighting Cancer. Anyone who would like to contribute may do so at the Payne County Bank or mail contributions to Ellen Dick- son, 216 N.E. 4th, Perkins or Joan McDaniel, 520 N.E. 6th, Perkins. A special thanks goes to Clarrcy Cook and the Senior Citizens for preparing the Crusade Packets, to Naudain Lore for serving as Business Crusade Chairman, to Elsie Grant for hosting a coffee in the Olivet Community which raised $54.35, to the children and teachers in our school system who have helped with the "send a mouse to college" phase of our campaign which now totals $57.36, and last, but certainly not least, to the following volunteers who canvassed door to door: Stella Hughes, Dorothy Lancaster, Lorene Redus, Shirley Hall, Judy Spillars, Roberta Hooper, Connie Walker, Willa J. Casey, Sherry Henigman, Barbara Tarlton, Virginia Hawxby, Dennis Hawxby, Katrina Jarivs, Twila Longan, Judgy Moorman, Galene Moorman, Karen Branstetter, Mary Nelson, Mary J. Alexander, Linda Doyle, Opal Baker, FROM ME TO YOU I personally would like to say Thanks to all the peple who gave their time. Names of these wonderful people need not be named as they will feel the Thank You l So if you don't feel my "Thank You" why not join in some of the many activities going on around Ripley and next time you'll have the feeling. And I might add it's a great feeling being on the inside looking out. So goes the news in the "Biggest Little Town in Payne County." Carol Acuff, Barbara Miller, Linda Shingleton, Teresa Niles, Betty Branstetter and Linda Parrack from the High School Student Council and Diana Herring, Lori Hatfield, Peggy Smith, Joana Bostian, Donna Saunders, Brad Clay- born and Travis Fowler from the Middle School Student Council. Again, many thanks to everyone who has contibuted so generously with the hope that "WE CAN WIPE OUT CANCER IN YOUR LIFE- TIME." Ellen Dickson and Joan McDaniel Co-Chairmen, Cancer Drive Perkins Concerned Property owners board will meet The Board of Directors for the Concerned Property Owners will meet at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14, at the Cimarron Valley Co-op conference room. The board will discuss a general meeting for the membership at this time. However, the main purpose is to analyze the future course of action in relation to tax problems. Interested persons may contact Leo Graves, chair- man of the Membership Committee, for information regarding membership, etc. Wayne Allen will also be available for help in these areas in the future.

Although this meeting of the new tax organization is basically for the board of directors, it is open to the public. However, tax pro- blems as such are not on the immediate agenda as much as plans to meet these problems in the best possible manner, Youngker stated to the Journal. 8x.10 PORTRAIT (in Living Color) ONLY PER PERSON potO plank's PLUS 50( CAMERA CHARGE ay 4'1p try" ANY AGE . . .
