Together In Prayer United Methodist Women of Florala United Methodist Church will hold one of their most important annual ob- servances this week -- The Call to Prayer and Self-Denial. More than 1.5 million women in 34,000 local units in all 50 states will join in the observance, The Call, inspired by special mission needs and by the op- portunities" to be made possible, focuses on prayer, a deepened spiritual life, and a guided mis- sion study. Major events of the observance include the Ouiet Day and an interpretation oi the mission projects in the United States and aborad 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 one- ness with planners, mission workers, and those served in church-related ministries. The Call to Prayer and Self- Denial for women of the Flor- ale First Methodist Church will be held at 3:30 o'clock on Mon- day, April 9, 19%, at the church. 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 mis- sion program to benefit from this year's special offering: l) In the United States the offering will be used to repair and improve mission properties and to renew programs of Christian mission. Through these instrumentalities the re- newal of lives in the name of Christ is sought as well as a strengthened Christian pre- sence in cooperative community efforts. Mission facilities are in constant use and demands for help increase daily. It is the belief of the Women's Di- vision that mission programs, to be effective, must be sen- sitive to the varying conditions and needs of their surrounding communities, and staffs must be ready to work in new or old directions and combinations. 2) Overseas the special of- fering will be used for leader- ship training for women. This will enable women around the world to follow earlier Chris- tians ip carrying on the respon- sibility of training other women for leadership roles in family, church, community, and civic life. A woman receiving such training has often passed it on to her whole community. Missionaries and nationals from around the world have prd- vialed information from. theCaU to Prayer and Self-Denial ob- servance. The Quiet Day, "Our Life Together: A Pilgrimage," was written by Miss Peggy Hal- sey, formerly a US-2 short- term missionary to retarded children in the United States who is now Secretary for Fin- ancial Promotion for United Methodist Women. United Methodist Women is the successor body to two former denominational wo- men's groups -- the Women's Society of Christian Service and the Wesleyan Service Guild, and is related to the Women's(Di- vision of the United Methodist Board of Global Ministries. Last year the Call to Prayer and Self-Denial offerings of United Methodist Women totaled $651,31Z.96. II LIBRARY NEWS By Muriel Savage Information regarding the display of the school children's art work has been handed to the various schools in the area. This work will be displayed in the Florala Memorial Lib- rary for the second year in observance of National Lib- rary Week which will be the week of April 8-14; however, the children's work will be se- lected by the child's homeroom teacher and picked up at the schools by the librarian on Tuesday, April 9, and will be on display from April 9 through April 20. There will be se- lected judges to come to the library and name the winners of first, second and third place from each grade. The first place winner will receive a cash award; the second and third place winners will receive rib- bons. Parents and Teachers alike are asked to encourage the chil- dren to express themselves on, paper, not merely to win a prize, but from an emotional standpoint. This participation might serve as a stimulant for future contests and could bring out a hidden desire for draw- ing, painting, and other hand- works and crafts.

Weight Watchers Corner BY ALBERTA GAMBLE Well here we are again with our progress report, you may think it's not so good, but we are really proud of it. Our 48 regular members lost 61 3/4 pounds shoes and all. We received orders at the last minutes that no one weighs with- out shoes on. And believe me that caught us with our boots on. Ha! But our class still kept up the fine Weight Watcher spirit because they have learned the lesson of patience, that is we do not lose it all in a week oi two, or a few months. But one day at a time, a meal at a time, a bite at a time (quote). This is what wins the victory. We had 48 regular members and 6 new members, makes a total of 54 members. Our total weight loss to date is 1,627 pounds lost. Only 373 pounds and 4 weeks to go to reach our 1 ton by May 1st. We can and I believe we will reach it since we have weighed all of our shoes, and too, one of our fine members made us a supply of tally sheets for mea- suring inches lost. And l hope one day soon we can give you the total inches lost. That IS what amazes people because the Weight Watchers program (not a diet) makes you lose inches all over. And now the common expres- sion with people around Flor- ale when they see the "stream lind" smaller figure wearing clothes so m-u-c-h smaller, they say, "There goes a Weight Watcher". Do you remember many years ago when the Ford's advertis- ing expression was, "Watch the Stream Lines Be By"? Now, Floralians will soon be saying, "Watch The Weight Watchers Go By." Now some people do not un- derstand how this miracle pro- gram works, and makes you lose inches all over, not just in your face and neck and. The first thing they say is "Now you have lost enough, don't you lose any more. Why you will be an anemic." They just don't know how much good, well balanced food we have to eat. It puts color in your cheeks, not on them. The program is made up by some of the very best Inter- national Nutritionist in the world. And they are still com- ing up with new foods and re- cipes. When you stay on the program you loose weight and have better health, more energy and ANNUAL FEES FOR CEMETERY LOTS LOTSNOW DUE The Cemetery Board an- nounces that the annual dues for mowing the lots in Green- wood Memorial Cemetery are strength than you ever had. Keep "on" the program and bring up a good weight loss next week.
