Study Club Holds Interesting gram Mrs. C. L. Eiland gave a most interesting and enlighten- ing program at the January 28 meeting of the Florala Study Club, which was held at the Din- ner Bell Restaurant. Mrs. Eiland's program was entitled "Will Rogers: A Man For All Time." She told how Will Rogers was a sougM-afler public speaker, whose speech for a political candidate whom he did not know led to his writ- ing a column, which appeared in hundreds of newspapers for 13 years. In addition, Mrs. Eiland entertained club members with many of Will Rogers' com- ments, which, although 45-55 years had passed since he said them, were very pertinent to this day and time. She empha- sized that Rogers always had great faith in the United States and its people even though he made fun of them. Mrs. S. E. Faine was acting hostess at the meeting, sub- stituting for Mrs. J. F. Halley who was unable to attend. Club members were served delicious refreshments of sandwiches, fruit compote, mints and cof- fee. In addition to the regular members attending, honorary member Miss Helen White, new member Mrs. E. P. Rodwell, Jr., and guest, Mrs. A. A. Harper, were present. The business session was presided over by Mrs. Marcus Gunter, Vice-President. Dur- ing the business portion of the meeting, Mrs. Julia Jernagan gave a very current report on International Affairs which gave highlights of President Ford's trip to China, as well as the state of affairs in Angola, Spain and Lebanon. The next regular Study Club meeting will be held on Feb- ruary II. Club members were asked to assemble at the offices of Franklin-Ferguson Company at 3 p.m., on that date, instead of the usual meeting time of 3:30 p.m. Clear Springs Church News by Gracie Adkison • . .

FROM THE ) • 9 I RESIDEN r S DESK OF GARDEN CLUB by Vera Whiddon It is time to be thinking of our next meeting, February 12, when we will be fortunate in having a bicentennial program and planting of a Liberty Tree. Mrs. Myra Nell Mickelson has the regular program, along with this patriotic program, which is a salute to America on the 200th birthday of this wonder- ful nation -- the most religious one on earth. Another thing that we should not forget is the Florala Gar- den Club's "Woman of the Year". This is quite an honor and each of us should give it serious thought as we pre- pare to cast our ballot for the winner. Turn your minds to- ward positive, powerful, beau- tiful experiences of the dif- ferent members and you will be sure to vote for the right one -- remember your club appreciates you and all that that you may be able to do for it to further its progress. Until later... Vera. - PERSONALS - Mrs. John Maddox of Anda- lusia spent several days last week with her sisters, Miss Norma Giddeons and Mrs. Cenie Williams.

After the president, Mrs. W. T. Perry, called the meetin~ to order, the group repeated the club collect in unison. Mrs. Donald Dean, program leader, spoke on the topic "The Golden Period in American Li- terature." Hemingway, Faulk- Her, Sandberg, Lewis and other literary writers were men- tioned in her interesting and informative talk. Mrs. Dean said that America's writers have given us living documents of all that has gone into the making of the greatest demo- cracy in history, and the saga is still being written. The living body of American literature offers powerful inspiration to the writers of today and tomor- row. Because we thrive on diversity of opinion and free- dom of expression, this country will continue to encourage the talent to carry on and enrich a proud literary tradition.
