Since the club is planning to delve into the subject further and to start collecting ma- terial for a history of Jewell County, there were many stories and facts given by various members. It seemed as though most of the pio- neers who settled this ter- ritory came here from Illinois and Ohio. Seven members were present to answer roll call and to join in the dis- cussion. Following a short business meeting, Mrs. George Cesand conducted a discussion based on a booklet about the early_bi~ory of this part of the country. Almost everyone had something to add to the information, and Mrs. Gillett had brought with her a scrapbook made by her mother-in-law many years age. There was much interest in reading the clippings in the book, especially the accounts about Burr Oak's population, businesses and grocery ad prices. The discussion was lively and informal. We will have our April 9tb meeting at the City Hall at 7:30 p.m. and it will be open to the public so that we may interest as many people as possible in our undertaking. --Mrs. Roscoe Wrench ALPHA OMEGA CLUB Six members and two guests, Miss Edna Masters and Mrs. Mildred Muliins, answered roll call telling what she likes about the March wind at the Alpha Omega Club meeting, Thursday afternoon, March 26, with Mrs. Mary Cobb.

G.F.W.C. -- BURR OAK EXCELSIOR STUDY CLUB Roll call was answered by recollections about when our ancestors came to this part of the country when Excelsior bring in a change in the weather, that a March wind is not the lonesome-feeling and -sounding that a September wind is, that it pumps water if anyone is so fortunate as to have kept a windmill in good repair.

A welcome visitor, Glen- adean Terrill, became a new member at the meeting. Gerry Rhoe, vice president, presided in the absence of the president, Jean~ Ferguson. Gerry announced that each unit should have a member in charge of sales of subscrip- tions to HOMEMAKER mag- azine. Wanda volunteered to serve in that capacity. Diana Dethloff offered to bring a copy of the magazine to the May meeting so that mem- bers could see what it is. The Finance Committee reported that the unit needs to have a money making event, as the annual $60 to the city is due. The Finance Committee will bring ideas for this at the next meeting or sooner. The unit will have Tuesday Hap- penings at the hospital in May. Shirley Loyd is organ- fling a Bike-a-Thon for June .to raise money for fighting diseases of children. More about this later.

She mentioned that each member is asked to contribute 25 cents to lobby on the State level for contin- ued help to E.H.U.'s. This idea did not catch hold, al- though there were no dis- senting voices raised. Louise Gillett presented an interest- ing lesson on "Window Sill Gardening" as Sandra Franco was unable to be present. Some ideas: house plants need plenty of light, either natural or artificial; soil should have air and not too much watering; use fertilizer, well drained pots, and mix" spagnum, peat, pearlite or vermiculite in the soil;, heat soil at 200 degrees to kill unwanted seeds or insects before petting; use chlorine bleach to clean an infected pot, and wash infected plants in mild soapsuds. "Prevention is the answer to pest control." Louise also gave a short lesson on indoor gardens, and illustrated it by showing a terrarium she had made her- self. Indoor gardens may be made in many ways, but all should be where there is little traffic and no drafts. Tem- peratures should be approxi- mately 75 degrees during the day and 65 at night. She said that indoor plants are in- creasing in popularity. Wanda served a delicious dessert with nuts and good coffee at the close of the meeting.

Centering in this area, he showed us sunrises, 'sunsets, cloud formations, ice storms, snow scenes, flowers, stained glass windows and a variety of other local events. "Life with a Capital.'L'" was the theme of this month, and Winifred McNichols used this in her presentation of the meditations. During the fun time Edna Masters presented Oscar awards to the group presenting the most popular skit. Beverly Burgess and Marjorie Suchsland were the social committee.
