Just a reminder that Liberty Hill was two miles north of Caddo and had a school, store, and several families in residence. The store was owned by my great-grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Banta. He wrote for the paper as Rufe Bolts. My grandmother, Della Springer was his daughter. My mother was very fond of her grandpa Banta and often wrote about him in her column. He died in 1943 and his wife, Mary, died in 1947.

A large crowd attended the funeral service of Mr. Howard t. Faudree in Caddo on Wednesday of last week. He lived most of his life in our community and was an active citizen in building up the country; to him is due the credit for building and maintaining our present school system as much or more than any one man. He was one of the first members of the school board and served in that capacity almost continually until his death.
The change in the personnel of our school kitchen was well pleasing to most everyone; not because of any dislike for the former cook, who gave satisfaction, but because of the high esteem in which Mrs. Murray is held in our midst. Mrs. Murray is a worthy widow who is trying to make an honest living and is thoroughly competent and trustworthy. We are glad to have her as cook for our children.
Our Sunday School so far has survived the rigors of winter and bids fair to bloom into a lusty and healthy youngster come spring; and we hope it does anyway for Liberty needs a revival of religious sentiment.
Health remains good and the news scarce. Maybe we will have more to report when we dig out of our winter quarters and start farming. RUFE BOLTS
Liberty H. D. Club
We missed several faces at our fireside chat at the club meeting held at the home of Mrs. Nunn last week. Don’t let it happen again for we need you with us. Mrs. Nunn is a very charming hostess and a good time was had by all who attended.
The talk by Mrs. Hughes was both interesting and instructive and quite a bit can be learned from her talks on the lessons that we study. In this time of turmoil and strife the greatest need is that we have healthy bodies and minds so how better can we mothers help our country than to learn how to feed our families to build stronger minds and bodies for our children.
After the business of the meeting was over delicious refreshments were served by the hostess.
Our next club meeting will be held in the home of Mrs. Della Springer on Feb. 18 and we well be glad to have you whether or not you are a club member. There is always room for one more so come and be a member with us. DELLA SPRINGER
