In a recent Round-table Discussion Group the
question was asked of the Ministerial Panel, at what
point does life begin.
The Catholic Priest spoke first and
said "At conception, of course!"
The Presbyterian Minister said
"No, no, its certainly begins at birth."
The United Minister tried to buffer the
obvious argument point and suggested "Perhaps
youre both wrong, and its a compromise in
that the fetus is not functional with a heartbeat until
the third month".
They had to prod the Jewish Rabbi for
his answer, and he finally leaned forward to his mike and
spoke softly "All of my friends here are wrong. Life
begins when the last child leaves home and the dog they
left behind dies!"
Computers are not intelligent.
They only think they are.
A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Prof. L.E. Robinson
Cards have been received by friends in
this city announcing the marriage of Prof. Luther E.
Robinson and Miss Anna E. Dysart at Springfield. Prof.
Robinson is president of the Normal and Fitting School of
this city and Miss Dysart was one of the teachers last
year. The announcement of the wedding is somewhat of a
surprise, but their friends join in extending
congratulations and best wishes.
Results Still in
The Oronogo saloon petition again
occupied the time of the county court all day today. This
time it is J. R. McLaughlin, who wants the license, and
it is given out that he has 76 names where 82 are
required. The case will probably not be settled today.
There were the usual delegations for and against the
petition and they, with the attorneys, made things lively
in the courtroom all day. Del Beeson represents
McLaughlin and Harry Green the remonstrators.

The old sayin that if
its worth doin, its worth
doin right is absolutely right. The rub
comes in the interpretation of the key word
To bring this into proper
perspective, consider the "right"
way to plant a garden. Dont know of two
people who do it xactly the same. Even
the "experts" (another ambiguous
term in any circumstance) cant agree
most of the time.
Course most of the
time doin it right means doin it
the way who ever is complainin about
the way you do it thinks it should be done.
This usually has little to do with the how it
would actually get done if the complainer was
in your shoes.
I suppose everone has
the right to complain ever now and then, just
as you have the right to completely ignore
This is some fact, but
Just Jake Talkin.
ART NOTES from
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
Of all the exhibitions we hold
here at Hyde House, I think the most popular is
the Annual Membership Show, which is our next
official event. On Friday, June 24th, we will
again host an outside picnic supper on opening
night for members and guests, and this is always
a fun time to see and visit with our artist
members and their families, but anyone who is
reading this is invited to attend! We will be
providing the meat and barbequed beans and
deviled eggs, using Clouds as our
"cook", and will ask our members to
bring a dessert or salad as their contribution.
This year, we are asking our adults to contribute
a small $5.00 donation towards the cost of the
caterer, but children under 12 will be free. The
invitations to our members will go out a bit
earlier than usual, as I want to remind our
artist members of the days to bring in their art.
I will be accepting members art on Sunday
June 12, and Monday June 13, both days noon to
5:00pm, and all art must come in during these
days unless otherwise arranged with me prior. Our
underwriter again this year is our own
McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital and we thank them
for this courtesy at this a busy time for them!
Beth Simmons will again be choosing the winner of
the Underwriters Award, and three other
awards will be presented by artCentral. Our judge
this year is Laura Lowry- Greene of Columbus,
Kansas. Laura and her husband Mel are the owners
and operators of the "Maple Un-Common Hotel
& Gallery" in downtown Columbus. Our
Membership Show will remain in both galleries
weekends noon to 5:00 through July 10th. I hope
you will consider attending, rain or shine! We
will have tents pitched against the rain or sun,
maybe some bluegrass music, delicious food and
drink, and alot of good art to view--- something
for everyone. Come out and be with us on the
