Household readers will be interested to learn of the honors won by Hope's sons. Ernest, the second son, this year duplicated the record of his brother, Wilbert, by being chosen the winner of the bronze plaque of Gamma Sigma Delta, honor society in agriculture at the University of Illinois.
Wilbert is at present in the army. Ernest is enlisting in the navy V-5 program and will be a member of the newly formed third wing of the Flying Illini, which reports for duty in June.
The third son, Joey, is busy setting new records in high school, while the daughter, Ruth, mother of Caroline Lucile, well, Grandma Hope might have a further report to make some of these days!
So, there, Householders, and a fig for Hope's modesty. -- The Editors.
