PETERSON - FORD SALES llclta - - - Utah Dear Suzy: I am not one to make speeches, and wnen the Jolly Stitcners asked that I give a tnoute to them at tlie.i 4uin annual banquet I wrote up the "tribute" and then lost my nerve and couldn't read it. So r'uz. pinch hitled for me and read tne letter. He says nothing vvas thrown at him, but maybe ..hey were afraid of his size. You nad belter read the tribute and judge for yourself. Dear Jolfytitchers: It is wonderful of you to as't me here to talk to you. It is also nice to see so many smiling smil-ing faces, and a few sour pusses too, such a nice name, Jolly Stitchers, Stit-chers, a group of women gathering gather-ing twice a month to darn socks, sew an apron, or put on a quilt, and all the time visiting together. In fact visiting along such lines that no woman dare leave the meeting for fear she will be talked talk-ed about as soon as she goes out the door. The idea of becoming good sewers sew-ers is very commendable, it's too bad none of you ever learned to cook. If you had spent a little time learning to cook you could have disguised a little arsenic in the food and gotten rid of some of those old goats you are tied to for better or worse, and from the appearance of the men here I would be the first to say leave the better off, and make it just plain worse. It was long before my time when the Jolly Stitchers club was organized, but my grandmother remembers how it got started. It seems that one of the women got a new buggy and wanted to show it off to her neighbors and so de vised the plan of starting this club, and so she used that as an excuse for going all around the North Tract.' Roughly half of the new club members were Indians, because in those days everyone lived in tents and they were all so sun burned it was hard to tell which was which until the winter of 1913, when the whites started to bleach out a little. One of the first members was Nell Munster, who had just come to live here as the new bride of Herman. What she ever saw in that old buzzard is a great mystery. my-stery. Nell is such a nice person, per-son, but I am sorry I can't say thesame for Herman. Another new bride was Josie Walker who had just married Windy Walker. They called him Windy, not because of the manner he had of talking, but because 'he hauled so much beet pulp you couldn't stand him around unless the wind was blowing real hard. Etta Underhill was an early member. mem-ber. She taught school, out in Woodrow so that Clyde could stay home and rest in the shade of the tent. Clyde didn't get rested up until just a few years ago when Etta retired and Clyde was forced to go to work. If you call leaning on some scales work. Then there was Henrietta Bar-ben Bar-ben and her daughter, Venice. Venice Ve-nice was sparking around with Leo about that time and her mind was not on sewing, unless it was wanting Leo to stop sewin those wild oats. Mae Wind and Alice DeLapp Jensen are still with the club. Maybe the reason they have been here so long is because they haven't learned to thread a needle yet But the men began to resent these meetings around the North Tract, and so they met one night at George Webster's store to make plans whereby the women would meet in one place so that the men could keep their eyes on them. George ran a high grade store, he bought eggs and sold beef, iron and wine, tonic and vanilla extract. The men who gathered there were Hi Sherer, Clyde Underhill, JeM Clark, J. J. Clark, and of course their host George. The men were not well when they arrived, but George got out the tonic and the men felt much better. In fact they felt so good that Mrs. Webster set out a cold lunch and went to bed leaving the men with their plans. She also set out a large pan of tarts that she had spent much time in making, but they were wasted on the men, because J. J. Clark set down on them, ruining the tarts, his pants and his son. Dick's sleep, because when Dick peeked out and saw his dad come home with this gooey mess attch-ed attch-ed to him he couldn't sleep wondering where his dad had been to get a frosted posterior. But the plans the men made that night bore fruit and soon a hall was built right where it stands tonight, and where the women wo-men could meet twice a month and the men would know where they were. When the meeting would break up. Judge Tracy would send up smoke signals and the men would all get back to work, at which their wives would find them hard at it when they came home. Later the club turned the hall over to Lafe Osgood to hold dances dan-ces in Saturday nights. The orchestra orch-estra a mighty tough on the Miss Helen Turner, atending the 4t-.kltlt. M the weekend , BAC, vvas home for with her parents, Mr, R L. Turner. . and Mrs. pianists and they changed them so often it is hard to remember very maftv of them. But. Tom Johr.s onSme fiddle and Dee Green on the drums were sights on? will never lorget. The orchestra played until the woe small hours or as long as the dancers could take it, that with lrequent trips outside for some North Tract air and other things of course, the dancers became a little giddy as the nights wore on. , The dances would probably still be held there if Air Wick had been invented i.i those days. But the husbands of the club members mem-bers put a stop to the dances. It seems that the fumes of the home brew lingered long in the hall and many a wife came home to face an irate husband, who when - he smelled his wile, he figured she had been doing a little tippling, and probably some of them had run across a cache out in the weeds at that. Billy Van took over where the Jolly Stitchers left off, and saved the crowds, that long and dusty drive back to Delta. Now that the hall has been aired air-ed out thoroughy the club can use it again for meetings. But for what good reason I don't know, it has been going forty years now and still some ofthe women can't sew. It's too bad they didn't keep the Indians as members, to learn from them. In closing my talk which I hope you have enjoyed, at least you can say you have, let me leave you with this little poem: Oh the Jolly Stitchers are a grand club, They make quilts and patch up britches, For their husbands, but here's the rub, The men are worthless sons of the soil. If I hadn't lost my nerve I probably pro-bably could have made that rhyme. rhy-me. Toots. , AllIIOtlEH't'.l Mr. and Mrs. R. N.
