Mrs. Nelson Cundiff and Son Enjoy London and Mrs. Nelson Cundiff recently ac- companied her son Jim Cundiff of Tulsa, on a trip to London and Paris. They visited Meryl's niece and her family in Weybridge Surrey U. K. and saw so many of the fabulous sights, touring the Tower of London where they saw the Crown Jewels. One dia- mond in the royal sceptre is the largest cut diamond in the world (530 carats). They went to Windsor Castle, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral. Saw the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, also went to Hampton Court Palace, the early home of Henry VIII. They enjoyed riding in a London cab and a double decker bus. They saw Big Ben and the Parliament Square, Trofalga Square, the River Thames, Picadilly Circus and went shopping at Harrod's and in Carnaby Street. They went into the Great Maze {and got out) also saw No. 10 Down- ing St. and went to Stonehenge and the city of Winchester and saw Win- chester Cathedral where King Ar- thur's round table is on display. Meryl and Jim hired a car in Lon- don and drove to Dorset where Meryl's mother grew up. They spent the night with a cousin of Meryl's and met three other cousins that they had with minutes or until mushrooms are tender and liquid is almost evaporated.

They looked up M eryl's mother's childhood home and the church she attended. The old church cemetery is where Meryl's grandparents are buried, so it was very interesting tracing back to their roots. In the church was a memorial to the WWI and WWII dead, and they saw Meryl's unde's name re- corded. He died while serving on the HMS Queen Mary in WWI. From London they went to Paris, France where they had three days of sightseeing. They walked along the Champo Elysses and saw the Arc De Triomphe, the Hotel DeVille, The Louvre, the Grand Grand Opera House, the Sacre Cuer (a magnificent cathedral), also Notre Dame and the Palace of Versailles. They went up in- to the Eifel Tower. There was so much to see in so little time. All this in such a short time after Meryl and her husband Nelson and Jim had gone to an October family reunion in Australia. On this trip the trio had a day in Honolulu, three days in New Zealand and while in Australia went to Canberra, Australia's capitol territory and to Cairn's in North Queensland where they went out on- to the Great Barrier Reef in a glass bottomed boat for viewing the reef. They went to Green Island which was really a tropical paradise. They really had a truly wonderful yacat~on and enjoyed a great reunion with Meryl's family. Since returning, the family has had a niece of Meryl s and her two daughters from Australia visiting for a week. It's been an exciting six months for the Cundiff family. -O" 2 days or frozen up to 4 months. Serve with Parmesan cheese. Makes 4 servings.

Young folk must think up some kind of outdoor ac- tivities In an early day in this coun- try, boys and girls had to make their own activities. The boys took to playing marbles, wearing the knees of their overalls thin to threadbare. Mothers sometimes had to patch britches and wash often to keep their smallfry presen- table. They also played mumble peg with their two bladed pocket knives on the school playground. Marbles was sometimes played for keeps. The girls made their own entertain- ment, playing Hop Scotch on sidewalks by marking off spaces with chall~ They also loved to play a game called Jacks, with a rubber ball, rather small, and steel jacks. You could buy these at a novelty store or Kresses. They enjoyed these a lot. Time passed quickly at recess or noontime for them. Older young people both male and female, enjoyed the game of croquet. It was played on a smooth cleaned off court and very much en- joyed on Sunday aftemoc~ or Saturdays, when not working in the crops. I know my father cleaned off. with Attic's help, and erected the steel hoops required, after ordering a set of croquet from Sears, Roebuck catalogue. Young people would come on special afternoons and holidays to play. It was an ac- tivity that went over big. Young people gathered at the Bellis homestead with Kodaks, of an early make, to go back on Eagle Mountain for picture taking. Couples paired off and courting • their best girl often resulted. Often these matches did not last long but one or two matured with marriage and some are still growing old around old Basi~ It was a way for young people and sometimes elders to spend a happy Sunday after- noorL Later, coming off the hill, they wandered thru our dooryard to stop at the Bellis ho~ne, where mother or someone played the organ and sang church songs until time for evening service. We called the building where we had Sunday school and other s~r~ vices the Hall. At Singing School the teacher would charge a small fee to teach us to sing by note. For a week or more we tried to train for bass, soprano, alto or tenor, whatever voice was suitable as the teacher advised. Later in life, as the years grew in numbers, folk got so they could af- ford a phonograph that played records. Some were so prosperous they could afford tobuy many of the latest hits that came ouc and put on records for folk to buy, and many listened long hours enjoying every new record such as, "Pretty Red Wing, .... It's a Long Way to Tipperary" and "Round Her Neck She Wore A Yellow Ribbon," and many late World War songs and musicals. A victrola as they called it then finally decked, just about every household during those years. Soon a stack of records would ac- cumulate. I remember my first machine I ordered from Sears. It cost $125. Quite a piece of money at that time. A whole teacher's salary for a month. This was great entertainnmet for the whole fami- ly and friends. Traveling With Ephraim Florence's and my visit to the Guthrie Masonic Temple last week brought back memories of the Na- tional Theater of Costa Rice. Both edifices were built out of a felt need for art centers in developing com- munities. Both were designed by utilizing traditional architecture and art Out of Europe and Asia--' with no financial limitation on the ultimate design. The Guthrie temple was the crea- tion of a New York architectural team, Marien and Katharine David- son. European craftsmen were '~hn- ported" to work on the building. Undoubtedly the Scottish Rite leadership had a hand in setting the stage for the overall plan; Scottish Rite symbolism and history is featured through out the building. Katharine Davidson elaborately detailed the interior design of the structure. The various rooms, however, each has a particular theme. Even the of. fice has a style all its own--15th Century Renaissance The entry hall is in the style of the ancient Roman Empire. There is a Pompeiian room, an Assyrian room, a Crystal room (18th Century English), a Gothic library, the Italian Lounge, the Egyptian room, King Solomon's Arch. Other rooms carry out themes probably stemm- ing from Mrs. Davidson's mind-- each is unique in itself and elaborate in detail. This was. not the first Masonic temple in Guthrie. The first was constructed downtown soon after the 1889 opening. The stained glass FORMER PERKINS STUDENT CELEBRATES 25th Festivities began with a 6 p. m. Mass on Saturday, April 15, with Rev. James A. Greinsr celebrating his Silver Anniversary to the priesthood at St. Matthew's Church in Elk City, Oklahom& On December 18, 1963, Father Greiner was ordained in Rome at the church of St. Ignatius. A host of friends and relatives traveled to Elk City to share and take part in the ceremonies.
