MRS. MAY WATKINS, DAUGHTER, BERTHA, CENTER, AND A PLAYMATE LOOK OVER A RELIGIOUS PAMPHLET JUST LEFT AT THEIR NEW HOME, BY A LOCAL MINISTER. MRS. WATKINS BELIEVES IN GOD AND TOLD HER CHILDREN THEY SHOULD GO TO CHURCH, AND NOT CURSE OR SMOKE. THEIR NEW HOME IS LARGER AND HAS GAS HEAT THROUGHOUT COMPARED TO THE OLD OIL BURNING STOVE IN THE DOWNSTAIRS OF THE OLD HOUSE. THE MOVE WAS AN IMPROVEMENT FOR THEM, BUT MANY OF THEIR FORMER NEIGHBORS IN KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, WERE NOT AS FORTUNATE, 05/1975
