The Detox Center is the alcoholics division of the South Central Alabama Mental Health Center with offices in Andalusia. The Reverend Bates serves as coordinator-counselor for the center and says that now they will only have to raise $13,950.00 supplementary funds for the 1974-75 budget. The Women's Civic Club has set an excellent example. It will be good if other civic organiza-. tions and interested persons in the four-county area served by the Detox Center (Covington, Coffee, Crenshaw, and Butler) will follow suit.

About 1.5 million women in 35,000 local units in all 50 states will join in the obser- vance. The Call, inspired by spe- cial mission needs, focuses on prayer, a deepened spiritual life, and a guided mission study. Major events of the observance include the Quiet Day and an interpretation of the mission projects in the United States and abroad for which a special offering will be made. Each woman who takes part is asked to give for others by denying herself, and to cultivate through prayer a spiritual oneness with planners, mission workers, and those served in church-related ministries. The Call to Prayer and Self- Denial Prgram will be held at 7 p.m. o'clock on Monday, March 4, 1974, at the parsonage of the church. An agape meal will' follow. The Women's Division of the United Methodist Board of Glo- bal Ministries sponsors the Call to Prayer and Self-Denial and has designated two aspects of the large United Methodist mission program to benefit from this year's special offer- ing. The Division says of the 1974 Mission aspects: "In the United States" the offering will be used for "Min- istries to Young Children and Teen-Agers." Through this Christian service the needs of many young lives will be met in community centers, schools, . homes, career development programs, and day care. Health, meaning, and pur- posefulness will be brought into some young lives, where special approaches will be used to reach neglected, mistreated, or hostile children or teen-agers who have already formed pat- terns of antagonism and resent- ment. "Overseas", the offering will be directed toward "Ministries and Movements for Peace and Justice." Some oftheseminis- tries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America are a part of the pro- gram of partner " churches abroad. Some join hands with religious and secular move- ments not contained within fa- miliar and formal structures of the church. These efforts may range from projects in an ur- ban community to the struggles for national independence, to the international programs con- cerned for change and develop- ment. Missionaries and nationals from around the world have pro- vided information for the Call to Prayer and Self-Denial talks to be given at the meeting. The Wooten service for the Quiet Day, "The People's Story", was written by the Rev. Ms. Jeanne Audrey Powers, staff member of the Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church. United Methodist Women is the successor body to two for- mer denominational women's groups - the Women's Society of Christian Service and the Wesleyan Service Guild, and is related to the Women's Division of the United Methodist Board of Global Ministries. Last year the call to Prayer and Self- Denial offerings of United Me- thodist Women totaled $680.144. Speaks To History Club The Florala History Club was entertained by Mrs. W. T.

Now the grand total stands at 3,808 1/4 lost. Less than 200 pounds to go. Come on class let's reach the goal. It sounds fantastic to me. Especially when we can speak in terms of tons, of weight lost. We had one new member and five life-timers, and we have two or three more almost to their life-membership goal. For our recipe this week how would you like stuffed crab?
