Leonard England and Oleva Copeland were the attendants. The bride was dressed in a lealle blue I found red foil, silver in reverse. And we made, dyed and strung popcorn in long ropes. I forget what else we did but it was fascinating work and what fun we had. Tho thick foil emerged from our amateur hands as cornucopias, baskets, small boxes and envelopes, depending on tho skill of the short fin- gcr.s that devised them. That was a memorable tree. II was different. After thai, hanging the funny, home made holders on the tree became a ritual at our house every year. They were put away carefully after each holiday along with then- braver and glassier kin, nnd next year Ihey would be included somewhere among the green branches.

Elizabeth Ann, who was revealed lo the country by her mother, Nan Britton, in 1927 as the daughlcr of tho late President Warren G. Harding, is today a -fine-looking, grown-up young woman of 20. A year ago she became the wife of the assistant manager of a Chicago business building. This sequel to a story which rocked the country 12 years ago is told by Helen Walerhotise in a copyright story in the Sunday Akron (Ohio) Beacon- Journal. Miss Britton,' who lives quietly in a secluded apartment in Evanston. 111., told the story to Miss Waterhouse as follows: lizabclh Ann's romance blossomed after her graduation from high school, where she was an honor pupil.

Life Devoted (o Child All Miss Brillon's life in rceenl years has been devoted to bringing up her child. Miss Britton, who keeps se- crel her residence and telephone number, because she wants no publicity and is loathe lo give interviews, is i- slender, shapely woman, almost frail in appearance. It is hard to believe that she is now 43. Her hair glints golden and nor skin is fair- and white. As she talked, her eyes strayed frequently la a framed .photograph standing near her on a table. "Ann has her father's moments of deep tranquil! ty, and is very like him in many little ways," she said Miss Bntlon had planned a college and writing cilr ccr for her dau.gh.tr •she admits, for Elizabeth Ann had' been "scribbling things since childhood. £lizuhclh Ann's Own Story She exhibited a story Elizabeth Ann had writlcu when she was less than b, shortly aflcr she had heard the story of her birth from cr motor's hps: "There arc different kinds of babies," child had scrawled. "Jesus was born with a gold ring around his head which meant Holy Other babies which are not holy, and are natural, are just born from their mothers. "1 happened lo be a baby born by my mother. "One day 1 a sked my mother, 'Who is my father?' " 'Who is the man your mother talks most about when she is at home with you?' she asked me. 1 said President Harding. 'You arc right. Presi-! dent Harding is your father," she I .suid. "After our lalk I did not love my mother no less lo know that she was President Harding's love-wife J loved her just the same." Motherly pride shone in Miss Brition's eyes. "But now her whole hie is wrapped up in her cooking and housekeeping, she said, "brie is a wonderful htile housekeeper." Mother Wrtics New Book Miss Brillon says her present income is derived from an advertising business she entered six years ago I wnen she came lo Chicago from New I itochellc, N. Y. Every day she works I n JittJc "hideout" in Chicago as she terms it, using a fictiitious name m her business hours, and writing steadily from dawn to dusk at a book which she expects to have completed within a year. She refuses to reveal its subject, but says it is not a sequel to 'The President's Daugh- UT." Bitterness still rings in hc r voice, however, whenever she mentions the Harding family, and the way they rc- lused her appeal tor a trust fund /or her child, fcnc will not speak of Mrs Harding. Nan says sh knows that somewhere there is a fund which President Harding arranged lor his child belore he died. "Faith makes me believe that time- will uncover where it is." she adds. Miss Britton prefers not lo reveal ic names of Elizabeth Ann's husband and his place of business because she is anxious to keep her family out ot the lime light.

The Paisley P. T. A. will meet Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock at the school. being annually overstuffed with candy or nuls, faded finally to purplish pink and had lo be hung where they didn't show. But when we'd sort the ornaments out lo leave for Ihc good old man, Ihc children insisted they he there. Now Used (>y Grandchildren Bugs ale up tho popcorn .strongs, and cotton dollios lost their features. But the little containers lasted for so long that my grandchildren now have them on their tree. Just two or three arc left but mother explained that lo her it would not be Chrisl- mas without them. Just think, an hour or two one winter night, stubby, little fingers pasting and folding un-' dor rny direction, and . a sentiment was born too sweet to lose. I hear parents say once in a while that a tree is too expensive. Yet, more than once when the purse was just about flat, I managed to get a litlle crooked tree, left ignominiously standing after its sllawart brothers were sold. I think a quarter was the proud sum I paid, one time. It was very small nnd very one-sided, but il was u Iree. The children didn't critize. It was their own and they loved il. And ornaments are such fun to make. Some colored paper cotton, tin toil, cranberries or popcorn make a display. Almost anything is belter than lo permit a'litlle child lo feel he is not on Santa's list.
