THE CANADIAN RECORD
The wind blew in a great crowd for our
program on Sunday afternoon. Alison Moore
and Phil Lancaster presented the "Riders on
the Orphan Train" with a mixture of videos,
music, and storytelling that had you crying,
laughing, and enjoying an often forgotten
history. The story of these children relocated
so long ago was correlated to the present day
foster care program. Too little money, and
too little money dedicated to the care of chil-
dren. This analogy left the crowd thinking of
why we can't learn from our past. Ms. Moore
pointed to the audience that our history is full
of displaced people, slaves, Native Ameri-
cans, the orphans, Japanese during World
War II, to name just a few. An interesting
and thought-provoking program that had the
crowd talking long after the program ended.
We want to thank those of you who made
your first trip to our museum. We hope you en-
joyed the museum and the program. This was
our first program for the spring and summer
season. Next month will be a special reception
on Memorial Day for our veterans. Stay tuned
for more details. We are continuing to prog-
ress with organizing our museum collections.
Dorothy and Lovella, with the assistance of
Mildred and Fern, are finalizing our inven-
tory of our newspapers. Dorothy has already
taken one set to the binders. This will greatly
assist us in researching topics. The other ad-
vantage is that it frees up shelf space.
Histur cal Musings
I have two history musings today. The
first is a puzzle we are trying to solve. It is
apparent that a photo was published in the
1920s newspaper of a church. The byline stat-
ed that t was the Baptist Church at Higgins.
This same picture appears in our history
book with the byline of the Methodist Church
at Higgins, 1903. We need someone to assist
us in solving this history.
The second musing is to provide you with
Building listed as Baptist Church at Higgins in
1920 article and as Methodist Church at Hig-
gins in the Lipscomb County History book
one of the many stories that Mr. Skaggs found
011 the news wires to include in his weekly
newspaper. This one appeared in 1929 in the
Lipscomb Limelight and Follett Times.
"The Ford is now an auto; I shall not
It maketh me lie down in muddy roads;
It leadeth me into trouble, draweth upon
I go into paths of debt for its sake.
Yea, though I understand my Ford per-
I fear much evil lest the radius rods or
the axles might break or it hath a blow-
n the presence of mine enemies.
I anoint the tire with a patch;
the radiator boileth over.
Surely this thing will not follow me all the
days of my life or
I shall dwell n the hours of poverty for-
Moral: Equip your Ford with one of the
new improved cuckoo clocks. When the car
attains a speed of about 25 miles an hour, the
bird will come out and sing: "Nearer My God
to Thee." And at 40 miles an hour, it will sing:
"Lord, I am Coming Home."

For musical entertainment, the
residents enjoyed Fern Young and
Annette Meek in the afternoon and
the Colliers in the evening. These
residents were never entertained so
much n their lives. It's something
from breakfast to suppertime, at least
five days a week.
On Friday, Wayne Baker had his
usual humorous time with the resi-
dents and then his devotional time. No
bus ride on this day because Wayne
was busy entertaining his great-
granddaughter at home. If you see
him, be sure to ask him about her and
watch his chest swell.
Remember our Activity Director's
birthday on April 26th. Send her a
card or let her know she's not too old
to have birthdays.
Also, the Abraham Home staff
would like to thank Canadian Glass
Company for sponsoring our Kabl 6

ng on at the Home and at what time.
Thanks again, CGC.
