SOUTH APRIL 28, 1928 SINGLE COPY 5c FARM MEUP27P 3ft Rural Pupils Place Articles On Display Here m BEE AND MEETING TODAY'S PROGRAM Winners to Represent Schools at State Fair in September; Ex- hibits Made Without Manual Training. Fifteen hundred articles made by Beadle county rural school children were on display today in the farmers' advisory room at the county court house. The exhibits were under the direct supervision of Mrs. Nellie Brusso, county superintendent, assisted by Mrs. Catherine Bischoff, Charlotte Sprung and Ethel Glazier. Fifth. Sixth, Seventh and Eighth grade pupils from the county's 125 rural schools were in Huron today, either with their exhibits or to at- tend the county-wide spelling contest at the .Huron High school. The cor- responding grades in the city schools were participants in the spelling con- test, the first and second winners of which will represent Beadle county at the State Fair in September. Teachers 3reet Beadle county's 125 rural teachers were meeting this afternoon at the High school. Tho children's exhibit at the court house will remain .open until 5 o'clock this afternoon. One of the interesting things about the exhibits, aside from their variety and workmanship, it was pointed out by Mrs. TSrusso, is that all of them were made without the benefit of man- ual training. The exhibits are divided into eleven classes. These include wood work, basketry, enamelac, sewing, health posters, water color, work, pen and ink work, pencil drawing and map draw- ing, the latter including products ami relief maps. Bird houses seemed to lead in live v-ood work class, although furniture articles play an important part. The bird houses, which show exceptional thought and execution, range from modest bungalows to the more pre- tentious type. Some of the articles of furniture are so well made that Huron furniture stores have asked to be allowed to display them. In the sewing class will be found articles of almost every kind, includ- ing handiwork towels, doll dresses, aprons and dresses that real children can wear. Lamps on IHsplay Lamps and lampshades are othev articles made by the pupils on dis- play. The same care was observed In the basketry class as was seen in the other classes. Some of the min- iature wagons show remarkable care as to details, ami the miniature air- planes, of which there are a number, evince great attention to detail. There is the "Spirit of Cavour" and the "Spirit of Huron and the "Spirit" of every town where there lives a boy who decided to submit a flying ma- chine model. No prizes were to be awarded at tho exhibit, although the best articles will be selected for display in the school exhibit at the State Fair.

The ministry today in such a church as ours is not an easy task. But we enjoy hard tasks and our relationship with our people has been most delightful. "We want to express our apprecia- tion to all of our officers and people' for the interest arid sympathy they have shown. It has strengthened and encouraged us through these weeks. There sare few churches that would carry on in such fine spirit and so successfully as this oneThms done. We pray and trust that your zeal -will con- tinue through th e coming w eeks a 1 so.

I believe I am im- proving and if the race between the tortoise arid the hare is always won by the former, I'll surely win the race. Looking back over the progress of a few idays makes one discouraged, but when I look back two or three weeks I can see progress. I am not able to prophesy how long this nervous ex- haustion will take in rebuilding. I am hoping that sunshine and moder- ate exercise and freedom from worry Wil speed it up. -'-'I-want you to'know that I have al- ways looked to the mountains and my vacation with joy in other years. As I now go', il is with sorrow and reluc- tance. My. work lies here, the work i love. I want to be at it but I can't and it makes me grieve. My heart is here and'I'd, sooner-stay right here. But on tho whole I think it is best not. I-would just get into these problems too soon-again and perhaps delay my complete recovery."
