Page 6 - Wednesday, September lp, 1980 American Legion Auxiliary William Russell Ledford Unit 293 THIS IS IT?.?? On national television, August 21, 1980, Madline "Stop Prayer in Public Schools" O'Hare, proclaimed in words loud and clear, "All religion is a scare. People can live rewarding and fulfilling lives without it!" * This'isit? This is all there is?? If so, then all our energies and desires would be directed toward survival...survival and .self-interest because there would be no hope. If this is it...if this is all there is...why do we humans con- ' tinue to desire...reach for...search for...and struggle with... "perfection? i We know we can't change  the world. We know we won't change the world until the world is ready and by now we are ; smart enough to know how difficult it is to get along with, let  along change, even one person. ' If this is all there is...why am I so appalled and horrified by the offenses and abuses against innocent little children? How i do I justify the violent ugliness of my fellow man...against my i fellow man? How do I explain imd reason the exploding mountains, earthquakes, fires, droughts, floods? How do I reason and justify the starvation of whole countries of ! neovle...whfle listening to the greedy demands of those who i already have more of...or most of...the world's goods? i We are surrounded by many beautiful treasures in this world but we are also surrounded by their illusion of perfection...and i allwe have to do to be reminded of the illusion is to walk on the green grass in any field and all too soon we will step on a stone or feel the sticker beneath our toe. If this is all there is I would ;have to "accept" or become blind to the imperfections surrounding us...just for the sake of survival. Yes, there are many beautiful treasures in this world...but" there are also many, many sufferings. Most of us can accept this life and its imperfections but as human beings who care for one another we can never be totally happy, which we all desire, or even rest knowing there are starving, neglected little children on this earth. What a horrible thought for all those little children...this is all there is...this is it! And what a sad thought for Madeline O'Hare, who makes that claim, for she also publicly vowed she will never again speak to...nor will she ever forgive...her own son. Her reason? The child she "used and allowed to be abused" to promote her cause...now grown and with a family of his own has become ...a Christian. HOPE  A wise Bishop one said to an atheist, "If you are right, when I die I will be going into nothing but I won't care because I won't know it. But if I am right,when you die you will be going into hell. Either way my way is best...for I have hove!" PERFECTION Perfection...according to thine own self...through thine own eyes is an illusion. EIGHTEEN?? Eighteen million dollars for a 4.4 miles of a two-way bypass??? Is this in the best interest of this community, the total community??? I complain too much about government waste, taxes and spending to consider a two-way cop out ! iLA freeway is one thing...a two-way bypass is another. And d carefully, it will tthe taxpayer (that's me and you) more like $30 million before it actually is built. $30 million...for 4.4 miles! And we "wonder" what our problems are ! Oh, boy ! Round 'n round we go, where it stops nobody knows. ' A FAMILY AFFAIR Bill Newhart (husband of that good cook, Gabby), along with older brother George, helped brother, Terry Newhart, put together the car that took third place in the Destruction Derby which was held at the Redwood Empire Fair Grounds n Ukiah on August 24, 1980.

By DENA GAMBETrA Now that the National Convention is over, and the new chairmen are returning to their homes in the various sections of the country, they are getting their procedure books in order, and notifying the various units of their winnings for the year 1979-80. This week William Russell Ledford Unit 293, American Legion Auxiliary, of Cloverdale received two great surprises, by receiving from the chairmen of the National Auxiliary two top awards for their outstanding work in two programs. The first was a lovely citation igned by the National president, Agnes Ken- nedy, and the National Energy Conservation Chairman, Mary Norby, presented to our local Energy Chairman, Donna Wooldridge, and the citation read, "American Legion Auxiliary presents this cerlificate to Donna Wooldridge, Energy Con- servation Chairman, William Russell Ledford Unit 293, Department of California, for submitting the most out- standing narrative report in lhe Western Division. This citation presented at the 1980 National Convention in Boston, Massachusetts." When one considers the tremendous competition wiih fifty stats and seven territories, this is a tremendous honor, and we all congratulate Donna for an outstanding job. She is again this year giving leadership to this program for 1980-81. The second first prize award was presented to the Lee Silvers for the most outstanding Auxiliary" Emergency Fund, the program she chaired last year. The citation reads, "Unit Essay winner presented to Lee Silvers, Chairman, William Russell Ledford Unit 293, Depart- ment of California in recognition for the most original and novel methods used to secure contributions io the Auxiliary Emergency Fund on the unit level. The National Committee extends its deepest appreciation, 1979- 1980, signed Agnes Kennedy, National President, and Ordean Couvillon, Auxiliary Emergency Fund Chairman. Congratulations to Lee.

Here is a small quote from the article under the title Industrial. "A Pepsi- Cola canning plant in Watertown, Wis., has reduced its natural- gas consumption 40 percent by burning old wood pallets, paper boxes and other materials it used to throw away. Its new incinerator eliminates previous garbage disposal costs, heats the plant, provides all the hot water needed for its two canning ]'fro:s, and is expected to pay for "Rself in three years." The Auxiliary Emergency Fund is a fund founded several years for the auxiliary members only. The various units contributeto the fund. The auxiliary member must belong to an auxiliary for five years,and in times of special difficulties, and when trouble strikes, the member may apply for tied-over funds from the Auxiliary Emergency Fund and in this way receive immediate help when no other help is available. Thanks to Maud Silva, Jane Burke, Marie Hill and Mrs. Crandall for the nice donations of good readable magazines, which will be sent to the California Veterans Home at Yountville.

Besu there will I prise, and hostessing County on the same q Don't eve Manzanita Manor Musings By JAN FREEMAN Thank you, thank you, thank you! What a beautiful word and one rm saying quite often these days. So many wonderful people made "Love and Friendship Week" at the Manor a beautiful success. I can't thank them enough. Each person who took over an area of the program did it above and beyond the call of duty and that's the key to a sful enterprise. "Whatsoever thine had findeth to do it heartily, as unto the Lord!" Is there any higher authority available? I'd like to give special thanks to Louise Morris, R.N., who took over the wonderful wedding picture and memorabilia display. She took an idea I had and made it into something to remember. She was in the background all the time taking care of the small details (like paperwork and cataloging) and giving me historical advice. I aw preciate so much her won- derful help. She came in on her days off, in the midst of company and even on her breaks during work to {let everything done. Thank you, Louise! Another person I have to give special recognition to is volunteer auxiliary secretary, Mary Wright. ironed wedding gowns, spent time giving advice I needed, and along with Lou Lampson, gathered and arranged the lovely flowers we had for the Bridal Show. All this with a house full of company! LoLl Lampson made most of the gorgeous artificial flower bouquets. They looked real! Ethel Garrett made two beautiful bouquets of ribbon that were given as gifts to Mrs. Wilson and her attendant, Ruth Tankersly. Mary also -assisted with dreing the models, took some wonderful pictures of the show and kept an eye on things during the show. Thank you Mary, Lou and Ethel! Now I must tell you about the refreshments! i lvea Otto to handle that department and as many of you know, she is very talented in things.  has assistance from 5 year old Julie' her granddaughter, on Tuesday, at the Musical Revue as well as Thursday at the Bridal Show. Along with this I have to tell you about the unknown emergency and the mirade of the cake. A wedding cake was planned to grace the table and be a crowning touch for the festivities. Phylis Warner, our head cook, was all set to do this. However, her granddaughter decided to make her entrance into the world at cake baking time. The cake was finally baked, and poor Phylis, who was the Bank already exhausted, besan to attempt to fro it. W,you Mrs. guessed it! Our wedding we cake became an earthquake make it do cake and there was no time to do anything else. What was the miracle?
