Club Delegates
(Con't. from page 1, col. 5)

The Slater-Marietta Chapter
is proud to announce that they
received a certificate of Supe-
rior Rating on their J. H. A.
activities for the past year and
a certificate of Superior Rating
on a home project entered by
Harriette Talley, a member of
the local club. They also re-
ceived a certificate of Superior
Rating for camping last sum-
mer at the J. H. A. Camp at
Mountain Rest, S. C.
In 1904, a French scientist
named Benedictus dislodged a
bottle from its shelf in his
laboratory, and it fell to the
floor with a crash. It shattered,
but to the scientist's astonish-
ment it retained its shape. None
of the particles were scattered.
Benedictus remembered he had
been using collodium in solution
in this bottle. By some chance,
the solvent had evaporated,
leaving a skin of cellulose ni-
trate on the walls of the bottle.
A few days later, he read in his
newspaper of an auto accident
in which a young woman had
been seriously cut by flying glass.
The two events connected
themselves in Benedictus' mind,
and laminated safety glass was
the outcome.

The youngsters who attend
the library clubs are very en-
thusiastic over the recordings

work. The recorded stories
just mentioned consist of the
following, each told with a
musical background: "The
Laughing Jack O' Lantern,"
"The Little Engine That
Could," "The Shoemaker and
the Elves, " "The Three Little
Pigs," "Johnny Cake," "White
Easter Rabbit," and "The Nut-
cracker and King Mouse."
Two of our Story Hour girls,
"Jackie" Clary and Carol Ann
Richardson, recently celebrated
