"I don’t see how a group took hoi home last May.    here could ever organize along the lines of that club they have in Tulsa/’ he said. “Something else might be just fine. But we wouldn't want to do it the way they have” Dr. Harvey Price commented on possible “duplication” of the club's activity and noted the increasing demands other activities are making on everyone’s time. More Support Roderick Ham felt the group could “promote agriculture'* as a whole. “We could sway ideas.” he said. “I think all of us could learn something.” Bill Thompson noted that people in agriculture, or at least some of them. had gotten the reputation cf always coming forward with their hands out. asking someone to take care of them. “We know it isn’t like that,” he said. “I think we can organize an active group here to perhaps change a little some of the public’s thinking.” Jovial Jimmy Thomas felt the group would be just fine if for no other reason than “the fellowship.” And so. the step was taken. It was decided to officially launch the group. As yet no name has been chosen but one will be adopted in the immediate future. The club will meet at a fixed time on a monthly basis. The fairer sex will be urged to participate. And, to get things off the ground in good shape, the first meeting Is set and an outstanding speaker is on tap. The first meeting will he at 7:30 p. rn. in the Terrace Room of the East Central Student Union Building. It promises to be an interesting affair. Dr. P. H. Stephens, research director for the Federal Land Bank, Wichita. Kan., will be the speaker. His topic will be “Changing Patterns in Livestock Production.” Undoubtedly, this meeting will be a springboard for the club. It may take off on a soaring flight to a success or fall fiat on its face. But, at least, a number of dedicated people are determined to give it the old college try. Anyone interested in agriculture is welcome. The “wimmin” folk are welcome. Reservations may be made at the County Agent's office. Or, contact may be made with any member of the steering committee. which includes: Dale McDonald. Bill Thompson, Ivan Blair, Jimmie Thomas, J.

The old building is on the right. Connecting in the background is a handsome new w ing which leads into the splendid sanctuary. The Latta church has enjoyed a steady and healthy growth since its foundation in 1932. Rev. F. H. LaFnllette is pastor at the church. He said the expansion represents an investment of approximately $25,000. Members of the church's building committee were Bob Mayberry, Joe Lovelace and W. P. George. Coy Shortes. Riley Green and Orville Maxey served on the finance committee. Picture at left is from the front, at right, across the rear of the new plant.
