All the little Sunday School kiddies from the nursery group to the more sophisticated pre-teens have been in a whirl this past week what with practicing and fittings and long discussions with each other about accessories and what not. The small fry fashion show is a feature of the “Country Fair” ba zaar sponsored by the church for the benefit of the building and re pair fund. The fashions are being presented by Mangel’s.

The bazaar will open at 4 o’clock Monday afternoon with booths for dart games, white elephants and a special booth where dolly can be outfitted for the holidays. The booths are the ones used in the scenes in the Paramount movie “The Rose Tattoo” filmed in the church yard last week.

What Became Of All The Pastry? During the filming of the bazaar scene at St. Paul’s Church, a lav ish display of pies and cakes were collected for use in one of the mo vie scenes. Everyone who saw the pastries agreed they were beauti ful. Because of Saturday’s rains, the scene was not shot but the pies and cakes were put to good use. They were donated to the USO YMCA and the County Home by Paramount officials. The pastries were baked by the cooking class of the Key West High School under the direction of Miss Kathryn Lowe, head of the depart ment of Home Economics. Para mount bought the ingredients, high school girls did the baking and County Home oldsters and USO sailors ate them, and all lived happily ever after.
