Vol. 2 No. 19

Recently, I and a good many others spent a most enjoyable two and one-half hours.

Where? Well- at the Tons of Talent Show at the school, Saturday evening. The show was

staged by the P.T.O. as their big fundraiser of the year. If they didn’t raise any money,

they sure raised the spirits of a few hundred persons. The show, written and directed by

Vivian Cypcar, was a “take off” on three television shows, Art Linkletter, Ed Sullivan,

and the Miss America Pageant. The efforts of all who participated were, in my belief

(sic) well appreciated by the audience. In my opinion, only one part of the show lost the

attention of the people in attendance, but was hurriedly brought back with the appearance

of the most beautiful “GIRLS”??? in Troy Township. Their beauty was so overpowering,

the audience was in awe. Nowhere in all the world could anyone find more dazzling

“beauties”. If you are in doubt at this statement, ask anyone who was there or better yet,

find someone who was taking photos of them and see. Also in evidence were a few

husbands and wives taking part in the show. Troy needs more of these and other

activities, designed for the family as a group, as it has nothing of great interest (illegible)

the community as a whole. We have our Little League for the boys, Scouts for boys and

girls, but there is nothing where a family can spend an enjoyable evening out without

going out of the village. All of us know a show of this sort is a great undertaking, but

with all the groups there are in Troy Township, there must be a way.

Mother’s Day (handwritten)

Did you ever take the time to look up the word in different languages? In Russian, it is

“mati”, German it is “mutter”, French, “mere”, Greek it is “meter” and in Latin it is

“mater”. Other countries, they have other ways and words to express their mother. Some

speak of the Mother Country or Mother Land as the place they were born. Mother’s Day

is a day proclaimed, the second Sunday in May, as the day for honoring our Mothers.

Julie Ward Howe is often said to be the originator of Mother’s Day. She held an annual

Mother’s Day meeting in Boston in 1872, and for several years hence. Others who took

up the banner on behalf of Mother’s Day were Mary Towles Sassen in 1887, Frank E.

Hering in 1904 and in 1907, Anna Jarvis began a lifetime of effort and it was she who

selected the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. In 1915 the President authorized to

proclaim Mother’s Day a Yearly (sic) National Observance. Have you paid tribute to

your mother lately? My Mother’s Day gifts from my two sons were very simple and from

the heart, and I believe these are the kind that are really the best. The first one, a fly

swatter adorned with felt, buttons, and yarn in such a way as to make the face of a girl.

The second, was a potted plant, a pink petunia wrapped in green aluminum foil and

accompanied by a card of yellow construction paper. On this card was a red flower, (I

still haven’t decided what variety), and the following verse. Dear Mother..I send this in a

special way to thank you for the work and play and try to please you in every way. Your

son. It may not be the best poem in the world, but he sent it and some of himself went

into it. What more can a mother ask?

Notes On Our Youth!

I have no Editorial this week, but if you want something to ponder—read what the youth

of Troy Township has done the past week. Scouts have received honors, 4-H girls have

learned more about homemaking and the Track Team has broken records. This all takes

time, work and patience. I think we do not give our youth (text in parentheses is illegible)

enough credit or moral support. What other township can boast of such youth?

gunned her to 60 and began passing. He saw the car approaching from the opposite

direction, too late. They gave him a nice funeral. One of his track pals figured the odds

he took when he pulled out of at 60 this way: “30 years old – maybe 40 years to go.

That’s 40 X 365 days a year with 366 for leap year makes 14,610 days, times 24 hours a

day makes 350,640 hours, times 60 minutes each hour, makes 21,038,400 minutes. He

tried to save five minutes. The odds? 21,038,400 to 5 – Whatta Dope.”
