Cerro Gordo county home project groups have been concentrating upon a study of homemade musical instruments and children's music this past month.

Above, at a meeting held in the home of Mrs. Seymour Hall, Lincoln township chairman, Mrs. Clarence Trego of Clear Lake plays a children's record on the phonograph, Mrs. Ben Skadeland, Lake township chairman, puts the finishing touches on a homemade drum. Mrs. Hall tries out her completed drum as Mrs. Forrest Cary of Grant township accompanies on a toy xylophone. (Lock photo, Kayenay engraving.)
