The five baby goats pictured above are rare animals, indeed, because they're all brothers and sis-
ters born at the same time. If you count them you will discover that there arc five—kid quintuplets,
in fact. J. L. McFail, goat breeder who lives near St. Louis and who owns Nancy, their mother,
said he had heard of only one such case before. Kids, it seems, are usually born in pairs, and even
triplets are considered rare—no kidding.
There is an association of
ftlovie stunt pilots called "The
Associated Motion Picture Pil-
ots" that has existed since 1032.
There are 10 members.

Easter Theme Used
At Club Meeting*
CHAMPION — In keeping
with the Easter season, mem-
bers of the Champion club chose
a religious theme for their
meeting last week with Mrs.
C". G. Naylor.
"Elest Be The Tie" was the
opening song, followed by the
clul> prayer led by Mrs. W. T.
Lavfield.
Mrs. .Jim Johnson gave a
summary of the subject "Charac-
ter Building", in which she
stressed the fact that there are
many choices to be made in life
to make or mar the character of
a child. Wise training of a child
was suggested.
Variations of angel food cake
and sponge cake were included
in the demonstrations given by
Miss Christine Czako, county
agent.
Since the sponge cake is in-
clined to dry out easily, it is
wise to slice it lengthwise, said
the agent. After it is sliced in
three layers, lemon filling is ap-
petizing.
Plans were made for a group
of women to attend the home
demonstration meet April 30.
The club scrapbook was return-
ed after having been in the A.
and M. college library for ob-
servation.
Miss Czako told the club that
their report for March as sel-
ected by the district agent, Miss
Ruth Thompson, was one of the
best and it traveled the dist-
rict.
Visitors present were Mrs. W.
H. Harris and Mrs. Herbert
Lang of Azusa. Calif., who gave
a resume of the sunrise Easter
service held annually in the
Hollywood Bowl.
Attending were .Mines. Oscar
Smith. Lavfield. C. G. Naylor,
Johnson. Floyd McBride, G. W.
Folmar. R. L Bankhead, Clad
Garrett, John Richey, John
Parrel!. A. M. Hauntche, E.
J. Recce. Flovd Blackwell and

Highland Church
Circle In Meeting
HIGHLAND — The woman's
missionary society of the High-
land Methodist church met in
the home of Mrs. L. J. Starr
with 11 members present.
A program on "Rebuilding
the Rural Community" was led
by Mrs. Adams of Maryneal.
Mrs. Jim Johnson, Champion,
led the devotional. She stressed
that fact that the day has come
when people are not judged by
material possessions alone, but
by what they are in character
and citizenship. "All who are
faithful to their daily tasks, liv-
ing up to the best that is in
them can help to rebuild their
community and make the world
a better place in which to live",
said Mrs. Johnson.
A great deal of information
and inspiration was given by
those on the program who dis-
cussed the work of the deaconess
in rural sections throughout the
world.
Mrs. W. T. Layfield and Mrs.
Johnson were elected delegate
and alternate to attend the
meeting of the Northwest Texas
conference of the woman's mis-
sionary society to be held April
10, 20 and 21 in Snyder. Several
members are to attend the ses-
sion.

nxt hostess to the WMS at her
