"Durn stuff should go up. It ain't split in five years." A young man regular in at- tendance at a downtown Abilene church came to grips with a problem a recent Sunday. As vice-president-in-charge-of- opening-exercise he realized he had fallen into the habit of giv- ing all the prayers himself. Determined not to be piggish, he called all the fellows together as Sunday School opened and he laid it on the line. He knew he was doing all the praying, he adinitted. And he knew it would be difficult lo single out a single friend for the honor. So, "I've given my brother a num- ber. Now. you all write down a number anil the one who comes closest gets to pray." A Johnston school youngster, bringing home the last tidbit of school news for the term, re- ported to her parents, "Bobby in my room is sick.'' "What's with "He has romantic Mrs. Harold Beaird.

All plans had to await report cards needed school work gets priority, Mrs. Roberts says. Vacation Bible Schools and sports programs are worked in. And there are the decisions, ar- rived at by the' youngsters and Roberts, about the "summer trip." "Camp" for the children is no problem. Over in Shackelford County there's the fine Hendriek Ranch for the children to use com- plete with playground, swim- ming hole, boat, picnics, hikes and all the vacation fixings. Twenty-four little girls arc- now on a Tuesday-to-Friday trip lo the ranch. Others will go in rotation. 7'here're facilities to care for 60 at a time. As usual, the high schoolers will have a trip this summer, destination (o be determined by the teenagers and Roberts. Sev- eral such vacations have been spent in Mexico, the group traveling by auto and station wagon to the border and then by train lo Mexico City and points south. They're thinking now about Colorado or maybe the Big Bend this summer, Mrs. Roberts says. They'll decide soon and the lo- gistical problems of moving some 30 people across country will be tackled. Some of the older Hendriek boys will work at the ranch this summer, before or after the trip. Arid as isual, you may he sure, everybody will have a fine time. One family problem the Hob- ertses don't encounter in their planning. Thanks to the endow- ment program of the late Mr. and Mrs. T. G. Hendriek. there is, within reason, no money worry about vacation.
