Thursday, Novtmbar 4, 1454 Bi iSS :. f til . n * 1 feannetf The time has come for yours truly to fold her Red Shawl and lovingly and carefully put it away. Were not the reason for this such a happy and joyous one. the sad ness that I feel at leaving my be loved shops and you wonderful people might take over completely. Asa matter of fact—could very easily get teary-eyed at the thought of an honest-to-gosh “ ‘bye by Bliss "—but Gee Whiz—am afraid the orbs are too busy being “dew ey” with gladness for you see, the ring I mentioned yesterday, very shortly, will be joined by the tra ditional gold circle. You have all been splendid friends and belive me, yours truly i., most deeply and sincerely garte ful for your kindness in allowing me to visit with you—write of you —and take you shopping. Consequently, today—after our usual manner of chatting between shop visits, would like to speak of —Our Town as memories and thoughts occur to yours truly. May I?

S 5 5=3 E Before arriving in Our Town, was impressed by either rather violent championing or condemna tion of the place by those who had been here before. Though the former group wer4. definitely in the majority, my curiousity was still revved up. over a town that apparently produced no middle reaction. They were either ‘for” or “against” and so It was, that I decided to make up my own mind but was already anxious to see Key West. Because I had ne\er been out of the States, many said “well, now you will —as the atmosphere of the town is Cu ban” others remarked that liv ing here would add ten years to mv life as the ways and manners and customs were leisurely and casual” S 5 535 £ ® Has your glamour gono gad ding?

Took turns being belligerent about it and succumbing to it. Remember there was no air conditioning then and that summer set a record high temperature. On the third day. though, something happened. It could have been that the trade winds came up (there had not been a breeze) it might have been a change in daily routine— getting up earlier than ever be fore siestamg in the afternoon having dinner in the middle of the day or just, that I found the joy and pleasure of going bare foot all dav. ££ = £ Sure don't intend to miss ih ing my friend, Madame Blacka moor who adorns TRIN KE • TERO'S window because this accessory shop is always e tre mendous amount of fun.

These ere e ter- Society - Personals - News Of Interest To Women THE KEY WEST CITIZEN rific buy for Christmas giving end toe, they ere guaranteed. With the thought that Decem ber 25 is not too far away, may I suggest that you put TRINKE TERO at the top a# your gift list because here you will see ell the delightful, nonsensical items and inexpensive tee—which will make milady se happy. Y'knew, jewelled handbag accessaries —• handkerchiefs—flowered perfume guns—compacts galore end di vinely deintiy or supremely so phisticated costume jewelry end of course, ceuld rave an end enumerate—but until you vlelt TRINKETERO (next deer to Her man's, 512 Duval Street) —end see this terrific accessory shop, you've missed a lot of shopping fun. ■ ans s s Though I can not pin R down exactly, shall nevfer forget .look ing about and thinking “I love this town with all my heart”. Can recall just walking iround and feel ing so very good about being here. Couldn’t get enough of looking at the blue, blue water which always -seemed to greet you at the end Of a street gorgeous and mag nificent flowers and plants such as I had never seen before buildings whose appearance tan talized the imagination. One day Joan and I had to do some shopping (oh yes, even then) and we turned the wrong way on Sfmonton and you can imagine our surprise when we thought we were heading toward* the motel at the Atlantic end, and found the enchanting sight of the waterfront instead. Then there was the time when I asked Floy how many cemeter ies there were here and she laugh ingly told me onlv one but that it was in the middle of the town. Howsomever, for days I always seemed to land there regardless of where I was going. Honestly it was funny and it was some time before I learned how to avoid it. Of course, having as much of a sense bf direction as a blind mouse *- it was more my fault nan ac tual location. s s sa ■ ■ Buildings are fascinating things —and more so when they belong to you. Of course, ovpn then you shouldn't settle for just any littlp old building—but one BUILT BY BENNSTTI Tho M. E. Bennett Construction Company, 217 Duval has an en viable reputation for building beautiful, well-put-together build ings, including commercial and residential. So, by phoning 2-2333 you'll know you've contacted a mightly fine construction com pany because BENNETT BUILDS BETTER. V 9 ■ W Then I started to meet the peo ple of the town. Having already fallen hopelessly in love with the place so it was that I immed iately sensed their deep courtesy and warmth and hospitality and loved to hear them talk. Conchs are truly a marvelous people. They have a sense of humor and an approach to living and a gener osity which in my experience, is not found elsewhere. Having lived all over the Island at one time or another— Johnson Street first in Frank and Doris I Johnson's guest house —then in Hattie Wilson’s home across the | street) Grinnell Street (one of General Barmine's cottages in iConchtown) comer of South and George Thompson apart ment on Yon Phister that pre cious house way out on Flagler the Byrnes' apartment on Truman and now. in Midge Jeffers delight ful aoartment on Olivia tt was my privilege and pleasure to meet lots and lots of people, and so it is that I feel I know them very well and sure do love them all. 3,S 55 £ S Am convinced each time yours truly drops in Hi# Ditty Box, 832 Ouval Street that I have seen all the shapes straw can be wound around in for baskets end then, by jingo—if there doesn't appear —a brand new one! Until you see the terrific collection of ell sizee end shapes of the beautiful baskets at the Ditty Bex, you'll find it difficult to believe hew ernenmentel as well as useful they can be. Saw some unusual lovely ones from Yugoslavia made of rusk with sturdy handles. A particu larly captivating one is shaped like a fish and would be grand 1 for fruit, flowers or her d'eevres. Also, PICNIC HAMPERS in ell sizes ere new at the DITTY BOX. £*S S * The third thing which completed my deep enchantment and love for Our Town was the fact that it is j really a way of bung.

In the above picture. Mrs. Winston Jones ia lighting Isabel Walker's candle as othar new members look on.—Photo by Spillman. New Members Of Junior Woman s Club Welcomed Tuesday Evening Jhe Woman’* Club was the scene Tuesday evening for the in duction of new members into the Junior Woman’s Club of Key West. Twenty-three young women were welcomed into the club. The impressive candle light ceremony was conducted by Mrs. Winston Jones, a past president of the Juniors and now second vice president of the Woman’s Club. Mrs. Jones was introduced by -Mrs. Raymond Blais, program chairman. Mrs. Jones spoke of the impor tance of clubs and community work in today's everchanging society and told the new members that the Woman's Club was a “yardstick to live by.” She stressed that Junior Club work was a preparation for train ing for future community work. Mrs. Jones also said that the sen ior membership was proud of the Juniors and was looking forward to the time when Junior members “graduated” into the Woman’s Club. As each new Junior was called to the front of the room she was presented with a corsage by Mrs. Blais and given an unlighfed can dle. Mrs. Jones then lighted her can places, when I'd wake up in the morning I'd think “oh. rnigosh gotta do thic and this and this" and then— someone would drop in for coffee or Joan and I would go to the beach and the fact that all those little items which I had ticked off in the morning never got done didn’t matter. This last fact was most amazing and astonishing. However, all the necessary chores did get done but in anew way carefree and sunburned. Then I discovered that here the people took time for you. They were interested in humans. And sometimes I shall write of the those I’ve met who had been helped by the people of Our Town either by sympathy, understanding or materially. Y’know, many have arrived here with tragedy, unhap piness. sorrow, and trouble, and they are mighty appreciative of the great kindness of the Conchs both the fresh water and salt water ones. S 2 9B S 5 Because busy days are ap proaching would like te tell you of a peachy idee for dinner. The A end B Lobster House 700 Front Street have excellent feed and if you dine there, you II see a tre mendously beautiful waterfront view. However, when the day has been one of these hectic ones —why not pick up as many of their delicious seafood dinners es you need because A and B Lob ster House FILLS ORDERS TO TAKE OUT! Also—chatting with George and Lil Stone, the gracious and ex pert managers of this marvelous seafood house is always a plea sure. m s sas m m My good Conch friends will smile at this —but Our Town has chang ed quite a bit. Though that year was only 'SO there was no air conditioning. television. street lights or one-way streets. Will never forget the constant presence of the building noises. Seemed as if the sound of jack hammers, riv eting guns, pile drivers and con crete mixers were an ordinary part of the town. Yes. there has been a tremendous amount of con struction. And of course, though yours tru ly preferred Our Town the way it was and hope sincerely that it doesn't get too glossy know in my heart that many things will never change —and am so very glad. • s ss m m Th Caroline Shop, 223 Ann I Street is known as one ef the ITEMS OF INTEREST TO EVERYONE dle and in turn the candle of each new member, symbolizing the con tinuity of service and the close re lationship between the Juniors and the senior club. When all the candles were light ed. the new members repeated in unison the Junror pledge. The impressive ceremony was closed with Miss Mary Ann Mat chett singing, “Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life.” Mrs. Ray Byrns. president of the Woman's Club and Mrs. Robert Dopp. senior advisor were special guests at the meeting. Cake and coffee were served to the members by the hostesses for the evening, Ruth Scadlock, Char lene Smith, Francine Johnson and Gilda Kalmus. The beautifully decorated table was covered with a white lace cloth > most delightful shops in Our Town. There are many distinc tive and lovoly “gift thoughts" horo. The majority of those ore imports, but all of them are beautiful, end while not expen sive, they are unusual and origin al. So, with Christmas coming— don't forget the Caroline Shop's many itoms for that perfect pres ent. In addition to their line of : gifts, the Caroline Shop is fa* 1 mous for their beautiful fabrics for slipcovers, drapes and all decorating purposes. You can either make them yourself, or *ake advantage of tho decorator strvicos offered by the Caroline Shop. Thoir workmanship is ex cellent and guaranteed.

The civic or ganizations the Art and His torical Society the Concert Ser ies the Players the Garden iClub the Woman's Club the Rotary —and the many fraternal groups ail work very hard for the good of Our Town so that it is an outstanding place to live.
