The mood o< antiquity is emphasized by a background scene of the Chateau Chambord in the Loire Valley The picture was obtained through the French tourist office and was made in France. The shadow box title is, of course, “Li Val de Loire.” A simple floral arrangement of cool green mint leaves ai-d native peri winkle was placed in a small bronze Empire vas; adjacent to a volume on architecture dated 1682. a French edition of Palladio. Candelabra d’or of the Louis XVI period on a marble base hold white tapers.

SOCIETY - PERSONALS - NEWS OF INTEREST TO WOMEN Tuesday, March 3, 1953 it took a red ribbon, is “Heir looms,” shadowbox story arranged by Dr. and Mrs. Aubrey Hamil ton. One of the most detailed and carefully selected sludies, the col lection of objects conveys the sa ga of a family through several generations. The flowers were pink roses, apropos of nostalgic memories, a sampler done in 1754, an exquisite wedding fan, a Louis XVI locket with a plait of hair, a handmirror, a horsehoe tie pin, a silken covered book of LongfeUow’s “There Was A Little Girl Who Had A Little Curl,” and other treasures. Blue ribbon also went to Mrs. Everett Winter’s second picture of a “Red Shawler, ’ this time of washday in a Key West sandy yard, behind a weatherbeaten house, where dogs, children and chickens run riot while mammies in bandanas supervise the boiling of clothes and the hanging of the garments on a line. Tubs, buckets and the backyard fire under the trees evoke a familiar view which is one of the Southland’s most typical. Stylized period is shown in “Pas torale” by Mrs. H. J. Steinbreder. A shepherdess figurine seems to listen to the music of a flutist or piper on a lawn sprinkled with tiny florets and studded with china cats and chickens. An elaborate ironscrol! gate and fence make up the back ground against a painted sky. Marie Antoinette would have loved this. A Chinese shadow box with unique touches was artistically created by Mrs. W. E. Baughman and Mrs. Mary Shec Kester. The title is “How Chi Bombax.” The composition is guarded by a blue porcelain Foo Dog, Chinese watch dog image. A mauve, gold and li lac-pink figure of a robed woman preparing the bombax petals for food and clusters of the actual crimson bombax flowbrs, give au thenticity to the exhibit. The glory that was Rome's, but with nco-slant, is “Bas Relief.” Fred Johnson arranged this most unusual display of medallions, a statuette of a discus thrower and accessories in white and gold. A snlash of crimson with green foli age completes the creation which is both classic, ancient and mod ern in mood. Other descriptions of the show divisions will appear tomorrow.

FT A Study Course On Environment Given At Harris “How Environment Helps Or Hinders,” the study course article from the National Parent Teacher magazine was presented by Mrs. Jeanne Knowles, Study Course chairman, at the monthly meeting of the Harris School room repre sentatives last Tuesday evening in the school library. • Some of the aids that make an environment which helps children grow were brought up.

Wood from the mulberry tree often is used to make tennis rac kets. ITEMS OF INTEREST TO EVERYONE CONCH C W QWDER By RAYMER The Flower Show was so daz zling that I bought my thesaurus to the office so that I couldn’t be too repetitious in describing the ex hibit. If all the adjectives were simply lumped into one paragraph ala James Joyce by way of Cecil B. DeMille’s press agents, that would be at least one way of writ ing about the gorgeous arrange ments. Sample try: bright, vivid, splendent, resplendent, lustrous, sparkling, shining, effulgent, ruti lant, meteoric, showy,. . .and that is just a beginning. A slip of paper fell out of the book which startled me. I haven’t, the slightest idea where it came from or who wrote it but it couldn’t have been Conch Shelley because this book was never in his hands. Here’s what was on the slip: See that tower up in tha staapie? Saa tha crazy purple people? Saa that chair? It's name is Jot. . . Crack me, I'm a pistachio. . . On the other side: “If I had known that one brief golden hour was all that we would ever know. If you had told me when you brought the flower, so soon to wither and crumple in my hand, flame of love short-lived. . .” Well . . .1 do remember where the slip must have come from, on second thought. . .He’s a newspaperman now and was one of the editors on the college paper. . .Ah me! How many would-be poets end up doing sports news! CONCH SHELLEY does have a contribution however. He sends on a pash pink paper a verse dedicated to Bill Gibb who wrote “This Rock of Ours” and is now on the police force. Conch Shelley’s thought for the day: Concerning myself with the subject Of girls in shorts I think decisions on them should not bo made By ancient sports I add an old proverb with A newer quirk Never tend an old man to do a young boya's work. FASHION SHOW coming up on Saturday at the Casa Marina will bring out lights and socialites, and maybe opera glasses. The models are professionals who know how to wear Saks, and could probably still look good in sacks, not Fifth Avenue. There’s another bright star on the season's hori zon come Monday. . .that’s the Red Cross Victory Dance, also at the Casa Marina. I must have the diamonds replaced in my tiara. 1 was polishing it up for the Cee- Cee Cromwell etc. etc, Hoffman wedding to Raymond Asserson, Jr., alias Bob Ellis, but they mar ried in secret and not until the cablegram from the Virgin Islands arrived did I know the details. The suite was decorated with American Beauty roses. Well. . . so was my house on Saturday. Thoughtful designer Eugenio de Berrayarza saw to that. . so there! it was a joint party in a way. Not that mil casa esta a joint. . .but Jim Cobb was sort of co-host with Everett Wood mak ing the daiquiris and doing the serving. People arrived in relays. We honored Jobnoy Meyers who left yesterday. For separate story see society page. Some of my best friends are people. Next day, Meyers was feted by Joanne Ver mette and John SpezialL . .a grand sendoff for a nice guy. V.D.C.

POLICE OFFICER’S WIFE (Continued from Page One) since he had arrived in Kev West. “Hit health doesn't seem te be tee good he always seems te be able te use up ell ef hit sick leave.” King added that his fellow ofti cere have complained bitterly about Garrison’s frequent ab sences from duty which had creat ed ill feeling in the police depart ment, hence the check on the night in question. Mayor C. B. Harvey, after the commission had declined to take any action on the charges, said that he “felt that King was acting within his official capacity when he made the check at the patrol man’s home.” King said nothing, except that he is “thick skinned. I am used to these things.” he added. Advice to new cooks: To blanch almonds, pour boiling wa ter over them and let them stand Just until the skins wrinkle. Oram the nuts and slip off the skins with your fingers. If you want to cut the blanched nuts in to even slivers, do so with a small sharp knife while they're still damp and warn* Good flavor combination: Tiny pieces of semi-sweet chocolate added to orange tapioca pud ding.
