After the meeting they adjourned to the city park for a picnic while Nan- nie went to a dinner meeting of her lodge. While Naunie was at the lodge meeting, her guests returned and set- tied in for the night. Imagine her surprise when she re- turned home to find the mat- tress off her bed. She finally found it in her backyard sur- rounded with cots filled with pranksters awaiting her re- turn. Following this incident, staying all night at the Rid- path home became an annual event. Mrs. Scott recalls having club at Nannie's house on the day before the County Fair. They brought with them an exhibit with furnish- ings for a living room which had been a club project. There were drapes, curtains, refinished and re-upholster- ed furniture and rugs. On the trip over they stopped to pick goldenrod on the roadside to further enhance their dis- play. There were pleasant memories of the camp outs on the A. & M. Campus, when Farm Club Women from over the state met to at- tend Farm Congress. Ses- sions for these 3-day meet- ings were designed for learn- ing and recreation. Many neighborhood parties, ice cream socials, and surprise birthday gath- erings were planned at club meetings. Club was not all fun and games. There was much work to do. Everyone had a garden project; many were landscaping their yards, and they were learning to use the pressure cooker. They were encouraged to share their learnings with neighbors who did not belong to the club. Hazel Scott remembers the day the club women went to Golda Stalcup's home to help her can a beef. Enough cannot be said of the dedicated Agents from the Extension Service. Throughout the years they have helped their women in ALL RCA & WHIRLPOOL APPLIANCES STILLWATER'S MOST COMPLETE & SPORTINGI GOODS ITEMS China, Crystal, Silverware So.

Be- tween the years of 1927 and 1943, Olivet Club was served by Home Demonstration Agents from Lincoln County. They were Miss Mahoney, Susie Gray, and Nadine Hol- der. After they transferred to Payne County they had the leadership of Made Calloway -Wallace, Jeffie Thompson, Dorothy Black-well, Ladora Chesbro and at the present time we are enjoying our 1 lth year with Betty Dahms. We have observed many changes within Extension Clubs. While they originated in the rural areas, their serv- ices have extended to the town and city. "Farm Women Clubs" are now known as "Extension Home- makers Groups." Farm Con- gress is now "OSU Days for Women" and the "Home Demonstration Agent" is ti. fled "County Extension Home Economist". Demon- strations are no longer taken to the individual clubs, but program leaders from each club in the county come for instruction, and go back to their clubs as teachers. Many new types of projects are promoted, such as Cul- tural Arts, Creative Writing, International Understand- ing, and now the Weigh-in program. Remaining the same throughout the years are the high standard goals aimed to enrich the lives of those who belong. Extension Home- makers continue to hold high their regard for Home and Family and concern for neighbors. -o- PERSONAL Those visiting Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Grimm last week were Mrs. Gertrude Dilliner of Portland, Ore., Mr. and Mrs. Richard Grimm, Mrs. Nora Sadler, Helen Hem- don, Mrs. Opal Baker, Ray. and Mrs. Charlie Thompson and Violet Brake. .o- I I I I I II I t Mo,n STII.I.WAI"ER 377-0083 Eden Chapel and Lost Creek will hold a revival starting Sunday night at Eden Chapel.

When you compare your electric bill with your neighbor's, one bill is going to be higher than the ; other -- maybe a lot higher. So, naturally you think that a mistake has been made somewhere, that a meter is not working properly or has been misread. Meters are probably not the reason. They are very accurate measuring devices, and almost never run fast. And since a meter records continuously, if a # i human error has been made, it will be corrected the next month. The difference in electric bills lies in the fact that no two homes use electricity alike. Habits, insulation ! and the weather have a lot to do with the amount of l your electric bill. Some people set air conditioners for very cool temperatures, while others are happy in Lee Slater, secretary of the State Election Board, presents plaque to more moderate temperatures. Some people prefer a NaMe Selph [left], as Patdcia Charles looks on. warmer temperature in the winter than others. And County election officials honored Payee County's top ,two election officials Friday were honored with the State Elec- tion Board's Bicentennial Award during a regional workshop for election offici- als in Guthrie. Nolda Selph, Secretary of the Payne County Election Board, and Patricia Charles Assistant Secretary, received the plaque from Lee Slater, Secretary of the State Elec- tion Board. The plaque honors the Payne County Election offi- cials for superior service ex- emplifying the Spirit of'76-- a State Election Board pro- motion during the Bicenten- nial year. that can make a big difference. Electric bills vary for the same reason that different families have different grocery bills: it's a matter of what you use and how well you use it. "While this award is pre- sented for the work of the Payne County Election Board during 1976, it could have been given for any year dur- ing the'70s," Slater said. "There is not a single elec- tion board in Oklahoma which responds more quickly to changes in election laws and procedures than the Payne County Election Board. Nolda Selph and Pat Charles don't waste time complaining--they just do the job. "That undoubtedly is why Payne County has the fewer number of staff members of any county its size in the state. Typically, a county with the number of register. ed voters that Payne County has would have at least four full-time election employees. Payne County does the job with.
