ADVENTURE That's it, the spirit of Youth. Yes and we’re always out for something new at Yelden; and here's the Mag. to prove we're having another shot.
A great find ...., a budding poet unearthed in one of our own members: read his works for yourself.
We have also discovered a 'He-man', who can make 'every picture tell a story' up, bend, in, out, Breathing, is his topic for this edition.
We also find that the Secretary loves you all, because he commences his remarks, 'Dear Club-mates'.
'DO YOU KNOW' is a page of gleanings, straight from the Editors' garner of knowledge.
We have long foreseen the need for guidance of our members in the realm of books and films. Here we bring to your notice a list of books well worth reading, furthermore can be obtained at no cost to yourselves, and the film guide which should be of interest to our picture-goers. For these reviews we thank Mrs. Wagland and the Management of the Rushden Cinemas for their co-operation.
Future Features We hope in the near future to secure an article from the Rev. E.L. Bedford for the Mag.: we should also welcome a short story, or any suitable material for the Editors' review for our next publication, which we hope, will be ready on 1st. May 1938.
Now let us end our work in a lighter vein with 'Smile Please'.
Cherio ... or is it Cheerio ...
This little book was found amongst discarded
papers and rescued.
Volume number one, edition number one,
dated February 1938, price 2d. (Two old pence!)
Does anyone know how long the club ran for?
Or have any photographs to share?
Breathing to Improve Health and Strength
The process of breathing, is one by which carbonic acid, is removed from the blood, and oxygen is supplied.
The carbonic acid, produced by combustion in the tissues, comes from all parts of the body, chiefly the blood fluid.
The oxygen combines with the red corpuscles and is distributed to every part, hence the necessity for maintaining the blood in a healty condition.
Breathing is controlled by the size of the chest cavity, therefore for free and full breathing, it is necessary that neither the chest nor the abdomen shall be hampered by tight clothing.
Breathing Exercises : In such exercises, the normal breathing movements are exaggerated, with the result that more oxygen is taken into the blood and more carbon dioxide is expelled in the lungs, and the circulation is improved.
These exercises are particularly beneficial to people who lead inactive lives.
Stand in a natural or easy position with the shoulders erect. Always breathe in through the nose, and keep the mouth closed until breath is exhaled.
Do not repeat this exercise more than four times in succession.
It is interesting to note that, the number of respirations of a healthy adult is 14 to 18 per minute; one respiration occurring to 4 or 5 beats of the heart.
During every 24 hours, the immense quantity of 400,000 to 600,000 cubic inches of air passes into, and out of, the lungs of an adult person at rest; in hard work the quantity is greatly increased.
OUR CLUB by George Cole.
Our Club is but a small one,
And in case you do not know,
Takes place behind the Chapel,
And we'rc much in need of 'dough'.
Now Mr. Payne and Mr Smith,
The founders of our Club,
Have come to Yielden through thick & thin
And even when there's a flood.
We have the 'Lovies' of our own,
The pictures are a treat;
So when the cry 'Lights Out' goes up,
We scramble for our seats.
The games are all exiting we play,
In that little cosy room,
We are warm and happy,
Despite the winter gloom.
And so for our two heroes,
We give three mighty cheers;
And may their names ring in our ears
For many, many years.
Members to compete in designs for either
Front Cover, or inside material.
Closing date for entries 1st. April 1938.
THE EDITORS' DECISION IS FINAL
DO YOU KNOW ? ? ?
That on 22nd. March and 22nd. September, day and night are exactly the same all over the world?
When you're rattled, don't rush.
Its easier to find fault, than to face facts.
That your body is not you?
In fact, it is composed of very common and cheap materials - water, about 10 gallons; iron, sufficient to make two small nails; a dab of phosphorus, a little whitewash, oxygen, hydrogen, carbon.
Traces of cheap metals and salts - all worth, in the open market, less than eight shillings.
Genius is largely a capacity for hard work
One tenth inspiration, nine tenths perspiration.
It is not so much what we have, as what we do with what we have.
Great things result from the skillful combination of little things.
Sin is the conscious rejection of known good.
Eternal Life is the experiencing of the absolute real.
COURAGE by George Cole.
As I lay sprawling on the grass,
One sunny afternoon,
I saw an ant go struggling past
With a pal who’d met his doom.
Oe'r burning stones his path was set,
Through tangled grass as well;
Oh, if that ant could only speak,
What story would he tell.
Our hero climbs another stone,
Though scorching was the sun;
No matter what lay in the path,
Our hero struggled on.
And as ho carried out the task
Of carrying his work-mate home,
I thought of the love he must have had
For the one whose work was done.
When at last his work was done,
He vanished from my sight,
To take the prize which he had won,
Though hard had been the fight.
And so, dear friend, when this you read,
You'll see that courage won;
God grant us all such a courage,
Until this life is done.

As you see, this is headed Secretary's remarks, and I am supposed to give a commentary on the club in general.
To start, I should like to wish the Mag. every success.
As the club is divided into three sections, I will take them separately.
I think it can be said that progress is being made in all the activities. Hand-work and Fretwork are both going well.
The films for the season have been up to standard, whether travel or comedy.
Mr. Payne has unearthed many new competitions and games that have been both interesting and amusing.
Attendance at this activity has been good.
This being the first season of this activity, I feel we must congratulate our instructor on the way he ‘put it over’. All those who have attended regularly, have made good headway, but unfortunately, some of our members are only 'tough' in their talk; for although the first two meetings had two groups, the others have only had enough members to make one group. So you 'Tough Guys' next time, turn up and show us how 'Tough’ you are.
If there are any members who have not attended these, they certainly missed something.
Mr. Payne has spent a lot of time in preparing his talks, which have been real common-sense.
I think I have said enough,so I will turn the 'agony' off. If ever you see a page in any further edition of the Magazine the same as this you will know what to do, ---- 'skip'it.
Have you heard this one?
Staunch Captain :"Now then my hearties, fight like heroes till your powder's gone, then run; On account of this rheumatism in my leg, I'll have to start now".
"Now look here, Johnson, this man is doing double the work you are".
" That’s what I've been telling him, sir, but he won't stop".
Father: "No, I won’t do your sum for you; it wouldn’t be right".
Bobby: "I don’t suppose it would, but, you might have a try".
Teacher: "How old is your father?"
Tommy: "Thirty-eight, sir".
Teacher: "Well, I must give you home-work more suited to his age".
Barber: "Will you have anything on your face, sir, when I have finished?"
Customer: "I don’t know, it depends on your razor".
Orator: "Remember, my friends, we are all of one mould".
Voice from the back: "Yes, guv’nor, "but some is mouldier than others".
