As a Family Life Demonstrator
in 1941 Arlene shows by these
statements that she has grasped
the significance of 4-H philosophy,
A girl feels like she is working
with and helping her family and
other people of her community
when she i* a Family Life Dem-
onstrator,” and “I thing that if
each one of us would do some-
thing like this our home would
seem more like home rather than
just a place to eat and sleep.”
Arlene has improved the family
living with equally the saiqe skill
that was used two years before
in her closet improvement. Her
story of this improvement in part
is, “Since the living room was such
a dark room, I decided to use as
light colors as possible. Before
papering, I lined the walls and
ceiling with • heavy cardboard
heavy brown paper. Before paint-
ing, the woodwork was a dark col-
or, so I took kerosene and covered
the jrood with it, let is dry thor-
oughly and then washed the wood
with soap and water, thus cleaning
and taking off the kerosene.”
Throughout her 4-H eareer Ar-
lene has shown the willingne* to
work and work hard, a *be
istic which has made it possible to
attain the achievement* the has
reached. She is now president of
the Olney High School Club, where
she ia a senior. After graduation
she plans to attend college, study-
ing home economica. With her
determination, she should be a suc-
cess in whatever field of endeavor
There are still some people who
are sick. We hope -they have a
very speedy recovery.
