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.”

To make the 384 Things for Home, Gift Days and Fairs Good-night Chick first blow the egg, then, boring with a needle in the mannerpreviously described, run a line of perforations lengthwise aroundthe shell, as seen in Fig. 556. This will allow of the shells being opened quite evenly.Cover the edges neatlywith lutestring ribbonpasted down on bothsides like a binding.Paste a piece of the sameribbon, twelve incheslong, across the twohalves of the shell, toconnect them, as in Fig.557. Make the littlechicken, which shouldnestle coseyly within theshell, of two worstedballs, using rings twoinches in diameter forthe body. Trim the bodyinto a slightly oval shape.The chickens head ismade in the same wayas described for GoodMorning. Glue it tothe body. In the illustration (Fig. 558) the egg is shown bothclosed and open, which will give some idea of what a pretty littlegift it really makes. The entire chicken must be glued in theshell as it is not intended to come out.

If you haventthe clay, why not get some at onceand begin this most fascinating work?Candlesticks are always decorative;even the old tin candlestick with itshalf burnt tallow candle has a certainpicturesqueness that the artist recog-nizes when he chooses that as anaccessory to his picture instead of theprosaic oil lamp. Then again, candlesticks give a wide scope toindividuality in design, and that it gives expression to onesoriginality is one of the greatest charms of pottery making. A potters wheel is not at all necessary. The primitivemethod of coiling the clay and gradually, without hurry, buildingit up into the form desired is far the better way for home workers.
