Our hearts were truly enriched to see her many friends come to our aid, bringing comfort and hope. We shall never forget that you won- derful people thought enough of Ernestine and us to help should- er the burden and lighten our heavy load. Please accept our humblest gratitude for your labors and our loss has become yours also. In time, we hope to thank each of you individually.

But, we are thankful to have been associated with her as long as we have, and to appreciate all of God's gifts that brought joy to us through her, wlm so enjoyed living and doing for others, according to the way God intended. Perhaps we have noticed that sometimes we are grateful for the blessings only after some unfortunate circumstance removes them. So from now on, we should give daily thanks for companiunshfp, for work and the ability to do good work, for beauty, for the moonlight and starlight, shelter, health and strength, and for the very air we breathe. With this in mind, let's remember Ernestine and ber never ending desire to be loyal and always eager to be helpful to others, giving God the glory for her job, which was always well done, even though it impaired her health. Someday, in that land beyond the rainbow, we will meet her again and say how much we have missed her, as she was such an asset to our club. The plant and bake sale was postponed last week, due to the untimely death of Mrs. Howell. It has been rescheduled for this Friday, April 23,at 10:00a.m. on the sidewalk in front of Florala Thrift Store. We will be able to offer those interested, an assortment of baked goodies and growing plants at a fraction of the cost you would spend for them otherwise. Come on down and help to make this sale a success. You'll be glad you did, for it will be contributing to a worth- while cause. Now that I am nearly recovered from my bout with a bad knee, I will be abletogo strong and help in any- way possible to be a winner in our club work, as far as the sale is concerned at least. Until later... Vera. Hemlich Maneuver, Life Saver More than 4,000 persons died from choking on food in the United States last year. Most of them would be alive today if someone near had known how to use the Heimlich Maneuver according to Larry Nave, chair- man, Physical Education Divi- sion, Enterprise State Junior College. "Every adult member of a family should learn to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation on drowning or heart attack victims and learn to dislodge objects from the throat of choking victims," Nave said. Instructions and demonstra- tions of these life-saving tech- niques will be provided at En- terprise State Junior College in a short course, Save-A-Life- Clinic,Thursday, April 22, 1976. Nave urged all individuals working in occupations where children and others are involv- ed to attend the two-hour ses- sion from 7 to 9 p.m. "Every school teacher, scout leader, nursery worker, busi- ness personnel administrator and others in the Wiregrass should be willing to spend two hours to prepare themselves to possibly save the lifeofa loved- one, a fellow worker or a child in ones classroom," Nave add- ed. Many persons slap a person on the back to dislodge food and often drive the food further down. This could result in death. "Since immediate ac- tion is required, familiarity with the proven method involved in the Heimlich Maneuver could very definitely save a life," Nave said. Hello Friends & Citizens: Lt. "Kojak" solves the crime or mystery pronto and seems to be a national hero. Yet an ordinary citizen like me is labeled an outcast for stating facts and asking questions which are also vital and or important to the public today and tomorrow. Facts on tobacco, alcohol, drugs, gambling, cover-up, collusion, protection, bribery, blackmail, scientificdiscoveries and advances in aH fields including weatherprograms, etc., etc. affects every- one's pocketbook and well being and is everyone's bosihess not just the various authorities and news media for most of them are with- holding and misrepresenting vital facts and it is easily proven. When the hour of truth arrives thoydudge the issue. And now what are the facts on Miss Quiulan's coma, Gov. Wallace's paralisis, Howard Hugbe's' strange disappearance and circumstances and so many, many morg baffling, weired, mind boggling events, as along with E.S.P. the sub-conscience mind, etc. An important question arrives and or has beenon many peoples mind for some time. Could thousands of prayers be rewarded on behalf of Miss Qulnlan's and Gov. Wallace's affirmities, sickness, etc. and if not, why not? The grapes are ripe or are they? Hope to continue this.
