I7 at 1:30 P.M. ~[ am still looking for some help and encouragement to start- ing up the Crop and Livestock Improvement Associations. Isn't is strange that for years it was said, poinsettias were poison. Ohio State University ran a test with 160 rats, feeding all parts of the plant - couldn't even make one sick. Dean Martin, Extension Horticulturist at South Dakota State suggests that the plants be kept out of reach of small children. This is to protect the plant! Three men were discussing the worst sounds they had heard, and one said: "A groan in the dark, when you know nobody's there". An~Rher said, '.The buzz of a rattle snake at your feet". The third man thought and fin- ally grunted, "A long, low whistle coming ~om an auto mechanic underneath your car". By Jessie Blllem A FEW C~RISTMAS decora- tions still remind us of the hap- py season just ended. Now we are starting out on a fresh new year. $9 many unthought of things happen each year nationally, in the area, or locally; that it is iml~ssible to guess what will be coming up this year. However, most of us go along day to day with the hope of contentment, a longing for a little excitement, and, the figurin.g of how our mon- ey can meet these needs. "Living Married" is a new TV series starting in our area Jan- uary 9. The program is planned to help persons recently married, planning marriage, or ones wish- ing it to be more compatible. The series is based on the mean- ings and ideas for better under- standing. In the 12-week series R win cover the changes in mar- riage and society, importance of individual identity, life styles, goal setting, sex roles, angers and coRflicts, communication, satisfaction, decision making, etc. The "Living Married" series is produced by the Cooperative Extension Services of Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minneso- ta, and W~seonsin. The program begins January 9, Thursday, at 7:00 p.m. over channel 8 - Brookings, channel I0 - Pierre, and channel 2 - Ver- million. A leaflet on this TV series can be obtained at your County Ex- tension Office. Later we also should receive a booklet for you to have w~th it. NOW THAT WE are re-reading our Christmas~ cards and tieing them up to put away, maybe we could tie up our wishes with them. We can take a piece of paper and number to 15. Now it may take us several days and lots of thinking to fill that paper. On this paper we will write the 15 things we most enjoy doing, whether it is reading, skating, singing, playing cards, etc. We then tie this list up with our cards, Next holiday time when we rattle the cards we will ~nd that WOONSOCKET NEWS Woonsocket.

Life is short. this year we will crowd in things we really want to do. holiday season is time, and we can see if we changed ourselves. Sometimes we are "too with details that are of little portanee. Maybe that is takes away our pleasure. H we are feeling rather after the holidays maybe should treat ourselves to a walk. Part of the noon spent walking in Alexandria week before Christmas.

Come To Church On ..%. ,:.:. i!iii ::::; il!i S#aws/ You can see by the car tracks that people are going places despite the heavy snows. Others, like you and me, perhaps, are going places because of it~because the new-fallen snow is beautiful and we want to en- joy it and look at the pictures it makes on the lanct- scape. Also. that frosty, crackly wind that comes with the first snows blows roses in our cheeks and new energy and expec:ations into our hearts. \Ve can't wait to get out and do things and be with people. A New Year is upon us. What wonderful things this year can bring. Does the New Year lying before you, with its promise, fill you with new life and excited exp~tatiom like the new snow mentioned above? May your New Year be a happy and prosperous one, and may you find great peace every day through worship and spiritual blessings each week through attenc~ing church.
