You have heirlooms, other family treasures and mementos you have collected over your lifetime. You are very proud of them . . . certainly they should be preserved and passed along in the family. But your children, all married now, don't take a fancy to old- fashioned stuff. They prefer the plastics and twin beds to the burled walnut and four-poster. They think the family Bible and old family portraits a bit gauche in their way of life. What do you do in a situation like this? The Walter W. Davenports, who retired a couple of years ago, have been giving it some thought. In talks with their lawyer and with library and museum people they have gotten one unanimous piece of advice: Just see that the heirlooms aren't lost because sooner or later, even if in a generation from now, somebody in the family will appreciate them . . . and treasure them as an invaluable inheritance. How, then, to insure they aren't lost after the Davenports pass on? The Davenports have done this: — Set up in their wills a provision that $500 from their estate will be deposited in a local bank, and the interest from it used to pay for a large safety box in the bank. In the box they will place all family papers, photos, mementos, etc., which will remain there until, in the bank's judgment, some family member proves a genuine appreciation for them. At which time the $500 will be distributed to heirs; — Made an agreement with their local Historical Society that upon their deaths their bedroom furniture, with marble-top washstand and dresser and four- poster bed, and three of the most treasured living-room chairs —all brought over from the old Country by the family — will be loaned for a period of 20 years to a memorial home in the country that has been restored for the public. At the end of 20 years the furniture is to be turned over to any member of the family who, in the opinion of the Historical Society, will treasure it: — Donated $250 to the local Public Library for a glass-in- closed display case in which, after Mrs. Davenport's death, the choice pieces of her glass collection will be placed on loan. For ten years or until some member of the family, acceptable to the Librarian, comes to repossess them. — Informed their children what they are doing, and left for the executor of their estate a written account of where everything is.
