Her work has been outstanding and she comes to St. An drews-Co'venant highly qualified in training, experience and person aiity. Slightly Off The Record (Continued from Page One) “Tommy" Hines has returned from Augusta, Ga., where he spent | several weeks with his aunt, Mrs. Eugene Hoke. Mrs. Marsden Bellamy, Jr., and Mrs. Lawrence Lee left on Thursday night for New York City where they will spend about ten lays. Mrs. Bellamy who was formerly Miss Jane Snyder, is planning to meet her husband, Captain Marsden Bellamy, Jr., when his ship docks in New York harbor tomorrow-. Mrs. Lee who prior to her marriage was Miss Mary Borden Wallace of Harbor Island will visit relatives and friends in the metropolis. Eugene Hardin, Jr., who is a student at Oak Ridge Military Academy, will arrive next v/eek to spend the Easter vacation with his father, Eugene B. Hardin at his home 102 South Fourth street. . Mrs. Sam C. Sw-eeny left on Friday for New Bern for a brief visit with her daughter and son-in-law-, Mr. and Mrs. A1 Ward Mrs Ward was previously “Muggins” Sweeny of this city. Sam C. Sweeny left during the past week by air for Honduras, Central America, on business. Quite the swanky thing to do these days, It seems, Is to gather to gether one or more automobile’s full of congenial friends, drive to Southport, and partake of a delectable sea-food luncheon-or dinner at one of their waterfront restaurants. Style is conspicuously abseM and no frills are to be seen anywhere, but the small cafes are spot lessly clean and the ocean fresh seafood is prepared to a Queen’s taste, so that the finished product Is simply “OUT OF THIS WORLD.” You would be amazed at the numbers of your friends you run Into down there, especially over week-ends. Society en masse seems sud denly to have become decidedly Southport minded. I wonder if the natives resent our wholesale intrusion of their quaint, prettv little village by the sea? J i had a chat with two girls yesterday who had just returned from New York City and when we got around to discussing HATS, they said that; “Color romped through all the millinery showings with blue dawn the high note in the array. It is a vibrant shade that leans to the darker tones. On various models it was combin ed with pink or those light shades of green classified as lime. Crowns are high on narrow brimmed sail ors, and in many instances banked with flowers, blue dawn roses be ing outstanding. Contrasting with these are huge cart wheels. De signers believe in them for late afternoon and Country club wear. A shade beautifully adapted to summer is burnt toast, a golden brown Milan straw being dramatiz ed with big gold poppies. New York hat stylists are also showing balloon berets and many of the favored open-crowned hats of medium size.” A great deal of interest is being shown in plans for the reorgani zation of the Inter-Se Cotillion club, which were definitely com ¥ Pleted last week, and for the club’s initial entertainment this year, which will be their Easter German on Friday evening, April 26th, a1 he Cape Fear Country club, when Miss Louise Hooper, daughter oi Dr. and Mrs. Joseph W. Hooper of Wilmington, and Herbert Mill er Wilson, of Pittsburgh, whose marriage will take place the fol lowing evening, April 27, at St. Tames’ Episcopal church will be the guests of honor. Never has a local bride-elect been more ex tensively feted than has Louise. Her prenuptial parties started two months ago and from Easter Monday until April 27, there will be two or three entertainments a day given for this popular young member of society. I will tell you more about her wedding plans next week. I am hoping hourly to receive a telegram from you saying that you are coming to visit me for Easter. Wilmington offers you many in ducements at this season. The foliage and flowers are at the height of their beauty; the serv- | ices in all the churches on Easter I are wonderfully impressive and up . lifting; and the post Easter parties will be numerous and of widely dif ferent varieties, extending courtes ies to our many out-of-town guests who are usually here at this time, as well as to our radiant bride elect of Easter week, Louise Hooper. Eagerly anticipating your early arrival and with dear love. I am, VIRGINIA Fondly yours, i MISS MARY DORIS LYON—Daughter of Mrs. Karl V. Lyon of Wilmington formerly of Elizabethtown and the :late Mr. Lyon, whose engagement is announced today by Jlef 1^l°th|r ,to Robert Benton McKenzie of Wilmington, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lee McKenzie 1 of Rockingham.

The customary American’s creed and pledge of allegiance to the flag were repeated in unison b- the assemblage. Miss Lena Berry, naturalization chairman, reported that April 23 had been designated as Naturali zation day, and urged the mem bers to attend this interesting program. Miss Berry also read a letter from Jennings Ott, Immi gration officer, stating that May 19 would initiate New Citizens’ day. Mrs. Spencer reminded the members of their decision in co operating with other organizations in sending a souvenir to Wilming ton, England. It was decided to send book-ends, and Mrs. N. L. Foy promised the wood from which these will be made. It will be interesting to learn that this wood came from a tree in Gover nor Tryon’s garden and marked the spot where the Stamp Defi ance act took place. This wood was presented the Stamp Defiance chapter by Dr. James Sprunt, and gavels and other book-ends will be carved from this historical wood. The members were delighted to hear that Mrs. Spencer had been appointed State Chairman for Red Cross by the State Regent-elect, Miss Gertrude Carroway. Stamp Defiance chapter will be cooperated with other organi zations in assisting with tire Can cer drive, the members alternat ing in maintaining the booth at Belks.

The meeting was then turned j over to the program chairman, Mrs. Andrew J. Howell, who pre sented Ray Galloway, executive manager of Wilmington post No. 10, American Legion, who gave an informative and impressive talk on America and world peace. T^ie highlights of this address were that the youth of America will be challenged to foster and maintain peace, and that it rests with the American people to keep the vet erans satisfied. Visitors were Mrs. Charlton Pope of Greensboro, and Mrs. George Davie. Mrs. Brindell, as sisted by Mrs. George Davis, served attractive refreshments consisting of punch, cake with me D. A. R. motif, dainty sandwiches, and mints. The wholesale business of the United States amounts to $70,000, 000,000 annually.___ Miss Avery To Become Bride Oi W. R.
