BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Bookmobiles A Common Sight Nowadays Above, Harvest Day royalty visited the demonstration bookmobile during its tour through Hettinger county this fall. Marlene Beck is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carlyle Beck of Amtdon, and Linda Austin is a daugh- ter of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Austin of New Eng- land. Below, the state demonstration bookmobile stops at Dickinson State Teachers college in Dickinson. by Margaret Anderson Stgv l~'blie and school libraries all over the state, as well as in other states, are preparing to have a special observanceof National Book Week the middle of November. IMsplays, fairs, exhibits, story hours and open houses will all be used to draw attention to books for young and old the week of Nov. 13-19. The interest in reading has become more and more widespread throughout our land. Some libraries will feature the contrast of old and treasured volumes with the most recently published fiction and non-fic- tion. Others will emphasize books of particular authors or a par- ticular subject. No matter how they are displayed books will take the spotlight. Throughout North Dakota a signal recognition should be given the North Dakota Feder- ated Clubs for their long stand- ing interest in and support of libraries in dozens of commun- ities. Since pioneer days wo- men's clubs have been one of the strongest supports to the library development program in our state. At the 63rd annual conven- tion of the NDFWC held in Valley City last May reports indicated that in most of the 140 clubs in the 8 districts there was some library promotion work being done. Mrs. C. A. Thaland- er of Beulah, is chairman of this department. Since 1897 when the Feder- ation was formed these clubs have continued their support of local libraries. Presently 21 clubs maintain libraries; 11 are the sole support of their local li- brary; a~d 39 others cooperate with mufiicipal agents in main- taining such facilities. Their ef- forts materialize in funds, do- nations, and hours of service in all phases of library work from mending books to catalog- ing. Specific areas of action in- clude the following. Minerva club of New Rockford promot- ed a new city library by cam- paigning for the passage of a 2 mill levy for its support, and by other fund-raising drives to furnish it. The Bowesmont Evening Li- terary club moved an old rural school into town, renovated it, furnished it for a community social room complete with a lending library stocked by the State Library Commission. The New Town Study club created a working library for their town by replacing books lost in a ~lash flood 3 years ago. Adequate library facilities were e~tablished by the Steele Fine Arts club to aid their commun- ity. Some 1,400 volumes were catalogued. A public library in downtown Columbus is one of the projects of their Improvement League. The Thursday Study Club of Napoleon is the sponsor of their library; purchasing $100.00 worth of books the past year plus donations. The Bottineau Woman's club was honored this year for her service to the public library owned and operated by the club. Hospital library carts are man- ned by members of the Rugby Literary club. A summer library was the pro- ject of the Velva Woman's club. Members kept the school library open one afternoon a week dur- ing vacation. They also present- ed 10 new books. Outstanding achievement in the library field has been the record of the Beulah Woman's club. This year after promot- ing the erection of a new City Hall they were given a large room in one wing to house their library which has been growing since its inception in 19:)1. Money for the furnishings had been earned over a period of the last 25 years in a variety of ways. With the assistance of Miss Eva Fogderud of the Library Com- mission staff, the members pre- pared and arranged the books in a professional way. Circula- tion has increased; a student assistant has been installed and a story hour is conducted. Club members are on the Board and each takes a turn at the story hour. The club also had promot- ed the acceptance of the county bookmobile service in conjunc- tion with McLean county. Not only did these various clubs actively engage in estab- lishing and operating libraries and bookmobiles but they par- ticipated in hundreds of clubs programs which featured: book reviews, discussion of ehildrens literature, authors' lives and works, reading aloud and poetry, recruitment of libraries, prob- lem of ~bscene literature and dramatic literature, One club furnishes weekly readers for patients in a Home for the Aged. Statistics such as these are most impressive, the influence for good that comes from the com- bined efforts of these North Da- kota clubwomen staggers the im- agination, but many many com- munities see the results directly and salute their friends and neighbors who do serve others. The following quote is certain- ly most pertinent "Accessibility is to books what propinquity is to love". Eleanor Stephens, Ore- gon State Librarian. Hurray for Books! is this year's slogan. It carries the implica- tion that books can be read for fun and knowledge by everyone. The wonderful world of books awaits each and' all through the libraries of our land wherever they may be found in small and large towns, in schools, in churches, in colleges and in pri- vate offices and homes. Hurray for books! [] Use a recommenaed louse kil- ler on your cattle now, while the weather is still mild, to eliminate your winter lice prob- lems when cattle are confined. ---C]-- Boxelder bugs are completely harmless, but a nuisance. Spray infested areas as soon as the bugs appear. Malathion, chlord- ane and dieldrin are all effective. --[~]-- Large amounts of frost inside a package of fronzen food may be the first sign of quality loss.

Conducted by SALLY OREMLAND TO CLEAN CLASSWARE (Mrs. A. E Mandan) In answer to Mrs. J. M.'s ques- tion on how to remove hard water deposits from glassware, particularly baby bottles, I sug- gest she use about Yz to 1 tea- spoon cream of tarter in the boiling water. This advice was given to me by my sister-in-law and Worked very well. Soda has also been said to do the trick, although I have never tried it. BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS (Mrs. N. K Mandan) How are some party ideas for the lady who asked for them. Children in the four-to-seven group will want to go home with paper hats and a basket of can- dies. See that each child pre- sent receives a little gift pack- age sometime duing the party. Two hours is long enough for these parties. You might have a game of Farmer In The Dell or Ring Around the Rosie. Dropping clothespins in the bottle is al- ways fun. as is pinning the tail on the donkey. The refreshments should he the children's dinner: small sand- wiches, carrot curls, cartons of chocolate milk with short straws plus a paper party napkin and some birthday candy to take home. For the cake. you might make it a merry-go-reund type frosted in white and decorated with a parade of animal crack- ers around the edge. With this. serve a scoop of ice cream. The seven-to-12 age group will like this type of party: send ready-made party invitations, plan a group of games in ad- vance. Relay races are always en- joyed by this group. One may be a peanut relay. Divide the group into two teams. At the word "go" each team starts, re- lay fashion, to carry a certain number of peanuts from a bowl at one end of the room to a howl at the other end of the room, using a teaspoon for carry- ing. The peanuts may not be touched by hand; if dropped, they must be picked up by the spoon only. Small bags of pea- nuts make good prizes for mem- bers of the winning team. If the weather is good and the children can play outdoors, any kind of hunt is much fun. Hide jelly beans or small pieces of wrapped candy throughout the ya?d. Pass out small paper bags for collecting; after ten minutes, a prize goes to the luckiest collector. Games such as lotto are entertaining. The refreshments can suitab- ly be the dinner. Include a var- iety of sandwiches, potato salad, pickles and cocoa or chocolate milk. Ice cream and cake nat- urally follow this. Use colored paper plates, napkins and heavy paper mugs and serve buffet style or as a "sitdown" supper. AUTOMATIC WASI~ERS? (Mrs. R. S Bismarck) After reading the discussion on foam rubber mattresses, I would like to see one on auto- matic washing machines. My old wringer-type washer is about worn out. After figuring the cost of a new automatic wash- er. the cost of electricity etc I have decided it is much cheap- er to do my washing for our family (2 school age children) at a laundromat. Have any read- ers found this to be true? COFFEE SPONGE PIE (Mrs. G. H Center) For Mrs. L. T Bismarck~ here is a delicious coffee pie. Coffee sponge pie: one en- velope unflavored gelatin, 1/3 cup water, 2 eggs separated, cup granulated sugar, 1 cup strong coffee, 1,4 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons vanilla, cup gran- ulated sugar, one 8-inch baked pie shell. Soak gelatin in the water. Beat egg yolks in top of double boil- er; add sugar, coffee, and salt. Cook over hot water, stirring constantly until mixture is thickened. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Beat egg whites until stiff; beat in other sugar gradually; stir in vanilla. Fold inte coffee mkxture, turn into baked pie shell. Chill un- til firm two to three hours. Top with grated chocolate (op- tional). POEM WANTED (Mrs. H. M Bismarck) I am interested in learning the last four or five lines of the following poem: These are the twelve apostles' names, Peter, Andrew, John and James. Two pairs of brothers, fisher- men by the sea, When Jesus said, "Come follow me," James the less and Thaddaeus, tOO, Phillip also and Bartholomew. I hope someone can supply the rest of this little poem, mention- ing the other five apostles. PUDDLING POOCH (Mrs. M. W Bismarck) For Mrs. C. K. You have a dog with a weak bladder sphinc- ter which is a hereditary defect, and is permanent. There is no cure for the dog. You can either have a ruined carpet or put the dog away. I am assuming it is a good breed for which you paid a good price as this trouble is seldom found in a mongrel. The purchaser should observe a dog closely before buying, several times if possible, for excitable wetting. If the dog is bought unseen through the mail, the buyer should demand a writ- ten guarantee that the animal ~md its parents are free of this ~defect. " i am sory to give you bad news but the~e is no other answer to your problem. Consult a veterinarian if you have any doubts. I would be glad to give advice on dogs to any other readers with problems. (Readers' ~ra~ia~ Post oper- atos as a public service exchange of ideas between readers.
