scale. The first V.F.W. National
Poppy Sale was held in 1922,
using French poppies made by

order to extend the relief af-

memory of those buddies who
were left behind. Since then
every V. F. W. Buddy Poppy
carried a copyrighted green la-
bel which identifies it as the
handiwork of disabled and
needy ex-service men.
The original plan has expand-
ed annually with the success of
each sale and is recognized by
the U. S. Veterans Administra-
tion as an important part of the
occupational therapy work in
the goverment hospitals where
the Bubby Poppies are made.

The entire proceeds of the
Sale are use for relief and wel-
fare activities among disabled
and needy veterans and their
dependents. A portion of the
funds is allotted each year to
the maintenance of the V. F. W.
National Home for Widows and
Orphans of Ex-Service Men at
Eaton Rapids, Michigan.

This Home is a living tribute

age of reverence for their deeds
and the testimony of immuata-

Friday, May 16, was "happy
birthday" for Bobby Hawkins
who was nine years old. Bobby,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley
Hawkins, is a member of the
Boys' Library Club.


The librarian wishes to pub-
licly say "thank you" to Miss
Coleman's class of first grade
children for the nice basket of
fruit which they sent to the
library last week. It was
thoughtful of this group to re-
member the librarian in this
way, and their thoughtfulness
is greatly appreciated.


Several more books have been
added to the collection of "Best
Sellers" which the library has
been featuring for the past few
weeks. These new titles are as
follows: " Roosevelt-As He
Saw It" (Elliott Roosevelt);
"The Shore Dimly Seen" (Ar-
nall); "Up front" (Mauldin);
' Dragon Seed" (Buck); "Hun-
gry Hill" (Du Maurier); and
"General Ike" (Hatch)


We are happy to recognize
the following new library mem-
Mrs. Evelyn Hughey Tilman
--Mrs. Tilman is a member of
the faculty of the local school
and teaches the seventh grade.


Gene Peterson-Gene is a
new member both of the library
and of the Friday P. M. Story
Hour group. He is the son of
Mr. and Mrs. Ibra Peterson.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Peterson are
employees of the Slater Manu-
facturing Co., Inc. and work in
the Weaving Department.


We hope everyone will plan
to attend the public program to
be presented by the Story Hour
groups at Slater Hall on Thurs-
day night, June 12. We will be
expecting you.

Let us join to "honor the
dead by helping the living." In
these days the flower of Ameri-
ca's remembrance, the Buddy
Poppy, carries an added signi-
ficance in its appeal "to care
for him who has borne the bat-
tle and for his widow and or-

of 12 and 20. The results of
proper training received
through Scouting can be found
in the grown man, for although
a grown man, he never forgets
the basic laws of Scouting
which include trustworthiness,
loyalty, obedience, cheerfulness
straight- forwardness, cleanli-
ness, and reverence.
