COMMUNITY INSTITUTE A SUCCESS
The Community Institute con-

seven other workers from the exten-
sion division of the University of
Oklahoma closed Tuesday eenlng

Somo will remember most vividly
tho work of Mr Twlchell In leading
the community singing; others the
sincere nddresses of Dr. Scroggs;
others the appeals of Mr. Armstrong
for cooperation between tho town
and country; while others will long
remember the pleas of MIsb Turner
and Mrs. Yost for a cleaner happier
association of our boys and girls
and a higher standard of home rela-
tions. Yet others are most grcatetul
for the medical Inspection conducted
under tho direction of Dr. Wiggins
and Miss Smith. The program was
so extensive that every phase of life
In the community was touched and
everyone feels that tho community
Institute will leave a lasting effect.

Choosing as his text a selection
from St. Paul "Remember my
bonds" vDr. Scroggs urged that ev-
ery one be more charitable In con-
sidering the faults of others. No
one who heard this eloquent eermon
could have left without the resolve
to lead a better life.
Then followed the basket dinner
prepared by ihe housewives of Beav-
er and tho surrounding country and
directed by the Beaver Mothers'
Club. Because of the heavy rains
tho Blngers from the southwestern
part of the county could not get
here; and the community singing
during the afternoon was conducted
by Mr. Twlchell.
Botween songs the community In-
stitute staff was Introduced and
each member outlined the work to
be carried out In his department
during the three days.
Following the singing an Informal
reception was held and everyone met
the members of-the staff.
The Sunday evening program was
moved to tho Christian church
where Mr. Twlchell opened with
community singing. Then Dr.
Scroggs followed with an address
on "Complete Living." He outlined

farmers organize for three purposes:
1. For legislation. Legislation
to promote their own Interests and
to prevent adverse legislation.
2. For cooperative marketing.'
Heretofore most attention has been
given to the producing crops with
very little attention to marketing

centB of every dollar paid by tho
ultimate consumer goes to the farm-
