Sea Disaster Leads To Celebration
By MARIPOSA MIMI HAYES, M/N
Interpreter and Author of the Hollywood Glamour Cook Book
Thirty-two French Seamen
arrived just in time for the open
ing of the new home of the
F.ghting French Foyer Club at
709 Ashe Street under the direct
ion of Mariposa Hayes, President.
The weekend was given over
to a round of celebrations and
parties with the usual gay French
atmosphere of singing, music and
French wine. Being shipwrecked
and stranded for ten days on a
desert island did not dampen
that wonderful French spirit
Key Westers have grown to
know and love, since the war
has brought us so many of these
cheerful and gentlemanly little
“pon-pon rouge”. Mademoise.le
Mimi wishes to express her ap
preciation of the full cooperation
by Mr. Henderson and his effic
ient staff at the Jackson Square
U.S.O. for their help in making a
more rounded welcome for these
brave young French sailors.
Madelaine Toppine, assistant
hostess to Mariposa, did her part
in helping these lads to feel more
at home not only by her gracious
ness but also because she herself
is French and was able to talk
to them is their native tongue.
It was like Christmas at the
Fighting French Foyer as Mad
emoiselle Mimi these
“marins” quantities of “Bundles”
of all sorts of clothes to take
back to their French islands in
the. West •Indies tjistast isles,

like all French colonies, wai' torn
and suffering from privations- r ;>
These seamen were caught! in

Stream and due to the high w’inds

his traditional high collar at !

get the high collars in the cor

war. The company notified him:
and regretfully he turned to the

the war emergency is not yetj

| treacherous reef, it was only by
' a miracle that they were all
j saved. For days they made smoke
! signals from driftwood fires and
slept on the sands of a wild and
jungle-like island called Inagua,
—fighting vicious wild hogs and
“Hooties”. Mimi can personally
testify that these wild jungle
animals are desperately danger
ous, for we ourselves encountered
tnem in ous trip s to the “Out
islands” to pick up young stud
ent fliers of the R.A.F. who had
crashed into the sea! “First-aid”
was necessary, not only for their
wounds from “cracking up”—
but often from the attacks of
these beasts while they were
waiting to be rescued. Anyone
interested in the subject of the
strange jungle creatures, and ad
vesture, might enjoy reading my
ariicle in Nature’s Path maga
zine in the August issue 1942
(Herbs and Hooties by Mariposa).
These French seamen will be
picked up by another French
boat soon, having lost their own

Comptroller Lee said he was
deeply concerned over the educa

cause they presented a companion
headache to the lack of housing
facilities for veterans.
“When our boys and girls went 1
out to fight our battles we prom
ised them much,” the state official
said. “They won their battle for
us. We cannot afford to lose our
battle for them. A barrage ofj
words will not be enough. Action
