of versatility, was the display in the

flaunting hibiscus crowned the top.
The necklace of radishes was con

George Renne supervised the
The miniature shadow boxes
created much comment. There
seemed to be some difference of
opinion as to whether these en
tries were to have or not to have
highlighting accessories. At any
rate, the judges must have been
in a dither when decisions had to
be made, for the exhibit, both in
tricate and simple, was based on
a wedding theme of bridal bou
quata and the anniversariat of
wood, crystal, pearl, china and
silver. The various categories
were expanded so that sheila, fib

Cleaning up the Elks Annex
after the Garden Club Flower
Kiow is a Herculean task. On the
laat night spotted Joe Toth toting
loads of gadgets away from the
exhibit. Behind him came his wife,
picking up things that dropped
from his load. Someone who knows
orchids and how to steal them
without injuring the plants took a
thousand dollars werth of the ex
otic blooms from Mrs. A1 Mills
garden while she was at work in
the annex. 1 hope the thieves have
allergies and start sneezing their
beads off. . .and that reminds me
. . .any old gold dealer and jewel
ry ebops in the area can be on
the lookout for a weddingband
which belonged to my great-grand
mother who gave it to me when
I was two months old, saying this
is for “Little Roundhead” ... I
was nicknamed for her husband's
regiment. The plain gold circle is
engraved inside “S. N. Douthitt”
.. and I believe has an 1865 date.
That, my Aztec mesh necklace,
which Is only plated, and a big
rimmed modern wedding ring
which was locked around the heir
loom, and hung on a chain, and an
enameled pin, are missing from
my house. Whoever took the things
can have them all and no questions
asked if only they will Return the
old family wedding ring. It’s
medium in depth —and can’t be of
too much value except to me.
