and fun to cook it! I thought, as I sniffed the Saturday baking,how many women could adapt some of theworking-wife-kitchen ideas. A handy mancould always build racks to hold kitchenutensils on the wall. Knife racks of variouskinds can be bought inexpensively. An eatingcounter could be made of old lumber, andwhy not use a pair of secondhand pianostools for chairs? The window sill in mostkitchens would stand widening, and thereyou have a place for telephone, radio, booksand files. The magazine rack and bulletinboard could be homemade in a short time. Breakfast equipment can always be finedup in one place, food supplies stored in groupsaccording to use. And the gift of color is any-ones, for paint and brushes are availableeven at a crossroad country store. Curtainsmay be made of inexpensive cotton or dressfabrics or dyed sheeting. A little planning,some help from the man of the house, andthe kitchen is ready for business and the busi-ness girl of today. the end WHY BE UP IN THE AIR ABOUT

CAMP HUMPHREYS — “Rain, sleet, or snow, Earth Day is a go,” said Onsemus Smith, Chief of the Pollution Prevention and Compliance Branch of the United States Army Garrison Department of Public Works’ Environmental Division.
Indeed, despite the rain and cold, the Earth Day Celebration went ahead as scheduled, April 21, at Transformation Park and it was well-received by the attendees.
“I think it’s pretty cool,” said Pfc. Aaron Boutin. “It looks like everybody is having fun, even though it’s raining.”
“It’s good, because I’m here with my family and my friend and I got a lot of prizes,” added Daniel Ward, age 9.
The event started at 10 a.m. and was scheduled to last until 2 p.m. However, the weather created a different outcome. But there was still plenty of activity despite the truncated time frame. There were prizes awarded for homemade crafts created out of recycled material, clay leaf projects, trivia games, arts and crafts, and free food. The Army and Air Force Exchange Service donated gift certificates for photo contest winners.
The event was a partnership between Outdoor Recreation and DPW Environmental, and there were also volunteers from USO, the Boy Scouts, and the Girl Scouts.
“I think it’s neat that the kids get an opportunity to learn how to better the environment,” said Spc. Randall Shaver.
“I’m proud of our Girl Scouts and we prepared them on how to reduce, re-use, and recycle,” added Summer Young.
“We want the community to know what we’re doing as an installation to be good stewards of the environment,” Smith said.
When asked what Earth Day was all about to her, Victoria Caldwell said, “Being able to give back to the community and help preserve Earth for future generations.”
Private First Class Kevin Wade may have summed it up best when he said, “It’s cold, it’s wet, but a lot of people showed up. The outcome was bigger than I thought.”
