RESEARCH By Hilda Hunnicutt Everyone over here had a very nice Thanksgiving from what I’ve heard. Charles and Thelma Glazener spent the day at Sanford, N. C., which meant a good bit of driving for one day, but they made it and reported a nice time. Times passes so rapidly, and I haven’t reported on Mary Jane McCall’s vacation at Wichita Falls, Texas, yet. She had a grand time looking for oil wells and what went with them. None suited her, so she came back without them. To answer a question many people have asked me — No, she didn’t go to Texas to see "Satch”, but she did have a glorious two weeks. Gene Eggert and wife spent their vacations in Washington and New York. Gene said the traffic in New York, as usual, was terrible—he got around faster by walking. Gene saw a Volkswagon and really would like one. Shall we fulfill his wish and give him one for Christmas? "Rice” Robinson drove to Washington during her vacation—all went well with the exception of a flat tire. Lillie Nicholson must be a plutocrat—she went to warm, sunny Florida for her vacation. Bob McDarris spent his vacation farming at Barnardsville. Some people just don’t ever tire of work! Charles Jolliff reported a nice time way up there in Boston during his two weeks of vaca tion. Others taking vacations during the past two months were Marcus Laws, Harold Owens, and Harley McMinn. We are glad to hear that U. G. Batson’s son. Bill, is recuperating nicely from an operation; and also that Harry Kolman is back at work with us after a recent illness. Oh, by the way, I haven’t reported on the Hal loween Masquerade Party in Brevard and which several members of our staff attended. Bob Rhyne seems to have been the "lady of the hour”. He was unrecognizable with his make shift feminine figure and womens’ apparel. He really had a way with the men, just ask those who had the honor of dancing with him! Frank Ferrell went to the party impersonating Groucho Marx, cigar and all. How did you get along with the "eye-rolling” so characteristic of Groucho, Frank? Word has gone around that Lloyd Harris has been wanting a new car, and since his wife wouldn’t let him buy one, he thought it could be accomplished by wrecking his old one. As of now — no success. Gunther Baldauf is extremely proud about the way his chickens have been laying. Up to now,, one chicken has laid the total sum of two eggs! Lloyd Harris’ daughter, Nancy, was given a very nice birthday party on November 17. When I asked Lloyd how old his daughter was, he re fused to tell me on the grounds that he would be giving away his age. As far as Lloyd is concerned, he is still 22; but when he combs his hair every morning, his dreams are shattered! Here’s hoping everyone has a very Merry Christ mas and a prosperous New Year. IT’S YOUR SKIN Few persons realize what an important function their skin performs. Its functions can be sum marized as protection, heat regulation, secretion, water balance, and absorption. It protects us from infection and secretes sweat and oil to protect us from light and heat. If yours is a job that may cause injury to your skin be sure that you use the protective creams which are supplied to you. Bathe frequently with soap and warm water and thoroughly rinse off all soap. Remember that your skin serves you well and you must assist in its protection by using good judugment. There is a wonderful mystical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life—happi ness, freedom, and peace of mind—are always at tained by giving them to someone else. "Don’t just try to be yourself with other peo ple. Try to be your better self!” 22
