In France, sho snys, they have separate stores for ouch of those. Cemeteries Fascinating Tho cemeteries fascinated Mrs Waller because they arc so pretty. 'You could very well have a picnic in a cemetery hero", she said. "They are just like 'parks. At home? our cemeteries are cen- lurios old and they not only have headstones on the graves, there are also body stones." The squirrels delight Mrs Waller, not only because they arc "such dear little 1 creatures" — they also remind her of her family! This brought u chuckle from her husband and a protest that he didn't think her family was al all squirrelly. Jacqueline maintained that they were, too.

Weddings have some similarity the world over, but there nre a few things that are a little different about them in France. Every couple is pronounced man and wife at least one lime, but most people have two ceremonies. The first is a religious ceremony in the morn- inn and the second, a civil ceremony in the city hall in the afternoon Friends customarily send flowers to I lie couple so there is a profusion of bouquets at both the church and the place of the reception. However, the bridegroom buys the bride's bouquet just as they do here. Jacqueline, said her mother is a skilled siinmstress and makes all of her clothes. Hut because it is considered bad luck for a mother to make her daughter's bridal j.;own, a friend of the family made Jackie's.

Mr and Mrs Henry Graefen a n d Iwo granddaughters of Chicago have been spending a week's vacalion at the home of 20.000. It's .in the dep'artmen^ of Maine et Loire on the Loire river. She is the eldest of three children and her father is a retired French army officer. During World War II. the family was evacuated for five years. Jacqueline went to Blida, Algona, when she was 5 years old, then to Le Havre and Kasba Tod- hi, Monaco. When- they returned to Saumur, they found much bomb damage. Schools Different School starts for French children with nursery school at six. Students not desiring to go into tho professions attend classes until they are about 14. Grades i tm 6. 5. 4, 3. 2, 1. If they plan to go on to school, at grade 3, students are introduced to math, French. English, geography ancj history. Children go to school Monday through Wednesday, have Thursday off. and then attend Friday and Saturday. University work begins at about 18, Jacqueline completed her French school and then went to London as an exchange student. She lived with cousins and attended New Cross College. She worked fur a year and a half in her home city as a secretary in an accounting firm. , The Hoycr family home was built in 1889 -- a new structure by French standards for many buildings are centuries old. They use very few rugs in the homo and the wood floors are polished with wear and good care to a beautiful .patina. TV Receplion Poor Utililies such as refrigerators, telephones and electrical appliances are scarce and expensive. The Royers don't have a refrigerator because they don't lika things very cold and they hava a cave in which to keep perishables. Private telephones are scarce. Most families share a phone with another family or Iwo. They don'l watch television because reception is poor in Saumur and there aren't many programs telecast as yet. Jacqueline picked up quite a bit of the fine art of French cooking from a relative who studied at the famed Cordon Bleu. Her husband says she is a very good cook. Wine is used., in cooking, especially in sauces, but Jackie said her family doesn't care too much for., them. Wine, greatly diluted with water, , is served with meals and there is champaigne on special occasions, but there is very little drinking of hard liquor. The big . meal of the day in France comes about 7:30 or 8 in the evening. Breakfast is light. Jackie said her father usually has cheese, jam. and some sort of pork for breakfast. Children have milk and coffee, or chocolate milk and bread and butter. Lunch hours are long — from 12 until 1:30 or 2 p.m. but work continues until about 7:30 in >the evening. Variation In Sizes Pam, daughter of the local Wallers, took her new aunt shop-> ping in Algona. When asked about clothing sizes, Jackie calmly staled she wore size 42 or 44 in dresses and bathing suits and a size 37 shoe! This seemed a little doubtful to Pam for Jackie has quite a trim figure. It turned out that dress sizes go by shoulder measurement and in a figure olher than inches. Jackie'3 shoe size in America is 4V2. Al Ihe conclusion of Col. Waller's leave, he will be stationed at Long Island, New York where they will live for three years. Before that time they plan to visit the Twin Cities, where the Colonel grew up, and take a trip to Colorado. Jackie will undoubtedly continue to be amazed at the variable landscape of this country and at the number of miles you can drive without crossing any national borders.
