Open House will be from 2-4 p.m. with the actual dedica- tion service at 2 p.m. Open House is for all who would • desire to view the home and share in this great occasion. Dedication of the home serves as a reminder that this also will be a part of God's work in this area. Both experiences are open to the public. Construction began on the building just a few short months ago with much of the work being done by mem- bers of the church. There was more work contracted out on the parsonage than on the church building, and yet the final indebtedness will be much less than half the appraised value of the home. The members hope to see this project paid for as rapidly as they did the church. Pastor Tom Hunter com- mends the church for their willingness and eagerness to enter into such a project and sees it as one more evidence that these people have a de- sire to expect great things from God and attempt great things for God. He feels the home has been exceptionally well-planned for use as a parsonage with adequate room for small group meet- ings and counseling ses- sions. It also has "Prophet Quarters" built to accommo- date visiting preachers and evangelists. Pastor Hunter said, "Our family has enjoy- ed the ministry here among these gracious people and we rejoice in their faith and courage. God has been very good to us and to this church in our time together and we look for even greater things to occur in the days ahead." The church has spent a great deal of time consider- ing what God would have them do next. They are as- sured that the first priority is to be of service to the com- munity to share the Word of God with people. But their vision also includes • projects and programs that will help bring this Great Commission into a reality in their lives and through their churcht Whatever happens, you can rest assured that the mem- bership desires that all praise and honor be focused on one name--the name which is above every name-- the Lord Jesus Christ! it is His leadership, guid- ance, and provision that has made all of these things pos- sible! Praise God from whom all blessings flow! The new and the old--the old 1907 stained glass win- dows grace this new church building in Ripley.

In the June report issued by the Oklahoma Tax Com- mission, which indicates April business activity, Perk- ins collected $4,449.45 in 2 per cent sales tax as com- pared with $3,815.21 for the same month in 1976.

Bloodmobile plans July 11 Perkins visit The Regional Blood Pro- gram of the American Red Cross is the sole supplier for 58 hospitals in 261/3 counties in Oklahoma. Their philoso- phy is that "individuals should receive blood because they need it. There should be no other criteria." Opal Olson, member of the Payne County Board for the ARC said the bloodmo- bile will be in Perkins July 11 at 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. The facil- ities will be set up at the Lions Den. Both the Lions and Jaycess are backing the project. The Cimarron Valley Ex- tension Homemakers Club is sponsoring the bloodmo- bile program in Perkins. They will provide workers as well as orange juice and cookies for the blood donors. Volunteers who give blood may schedule their time for convenience or "walk-ins" will be accepted, Mrs. Olson said. An orientation for workers is scheduled for June 29 at 1 p.m. in the Lions Den. Workers from the regional office out of Tulsa will instruct workers participa. ting in the drive. Mrs. Olson said that in checking with Stillwater Municipal Hospital she found numerous names from the Perkins area. "'Over one- half of the patients receiving blood transfusions were from smaller towns in the Stillwater vicinity." The ARC does not buy blood nor charge for it. It should not be confused with Community Blood Bank, Inc., in Okia- homa City. John Duck, chairman for the Payne County Red Cross said "Anyone having any problems getting blood out- side the Tulsa Regional area should let the Red Cross in Stillwater know about it. "The last thing a patient needs is harassment about replacing blood when a pa- tient is ill enough to need transfusions in an Oklahoma City Hospital or an extra fee for doing so," Duck told The Journal. The patients in these hos- pitals are being asked to re- place blood by providing donors to come to Oklahoma City. If not they are charged an additional fee by the Okla- homa Blood Institute," he said. Tulsa hospitals or an affili- ate with the Red Cross co- operate. Therefore, the di- rector of Tulsa Advisory Committee stated it is true that he would advise persons to go to those hospitals which can provide Red Cross blood. Duck said the Red Cross will go so far as to "boycott" hospitals charging persons additional fees for blood. He believes the testing fees are one of the major facfors for not using Red Cross blood which is already tested• The same problem seems to be developi.ng in the Enid hospital, the Stillwater manll said. Blood must be given in. advance to be readily avail- able in emergencies• Donors (Continued on Back Page) 135,000 bushels deposited at Co.op By Allan Wall The grain harvest is con- tinuing and completely fin- ished by some farmers. The Co-op elevator in Perkins has taken in an amount in excess of 135,000 bushels. The average yield per acre has been about 30 bushels per acre, and the approxi- mate average weight per bushel is 61 pounds. The moisture content of the grain is about 101A%. In wheat, the content of moisture should not be above 13%, because wheat has such a concentrated product too much moisture messes it up. Dwain narrow of the Co- op also reported harvest is probably about 75% finish- ed, and that we've had "ex- cellent weather conditions" for harvest this year. As I said before wheat is very concentrated. The main part of the grain is composed of carbohydrates. The wheat plant uses sunlight, water and minerals to manufacture the wheat grains, which are a source of energy for hu- mans and animals. So actual- ly, wheat is a more produc- tive source of energy than oil, because it possesses the ability to multiply and make more of itself each year. Once there's some oil and you use it up, it's gone. (But no wisecracker better sug- gest I run a car on wheat!) Harvest is the time of each year that a farmer reaps the produce of his planning, i work, time, and money• A lot of money is tied up in it, and it's meant to make a profit for the farmer• When a farmer invests money to work the soil, seed it, and l manage it, he's taking a risk, If his wheat is destroyed by a : (Continued on Back Page) : Dana Taylor New at Bank Dana Taylor, 1977 P-T graduate began full .time employment at the Payne County Bank June 6.
