St. Terrace, Lonuconing, will soon to enjoy their own home, etalls of which were worked Chile Mr. Harrison was serving corporal in the Air Transport nand. Before entering the E in July, 1942, Mr. Harrison fod much of his spare time to decorating, and it was his ability to make sketches looms and furniture arrange- 6s that he arid Mrs. Harrison, | were married while he was in Service, were able to plan'their ,vaf home nnd compare their and cUslikos, even though scp- jrd by hundreds of miles, toig with Cpl. Harrison's letters ks wife would come sketches of fe.i us he liked them, complete in detail, down to flower vases Tknick-knacks. Then Mrs. Har- would mark X's beside the ires of the rooms that failed to le her fancy, write a letter giv- (ier views of the points in ques- und fend the sketches back to ' husband. Within a few days, would come the sketches, this with controversial details ted out in a manner to suit the Es of both husband and wife. f medical discharge brought Mr. ison home sooner than had expected, at a time when a ftRiie of building materials pro- Is the erection of new homes, [the Harrisons will move to an V'nient in Woodlawn, LaVale, a the next few weeks, and rooms will be furnished "acting to plan." Mrs. Harrison was i to. assemble many of the need- jnicles for her home before her sand waa released from the because she knew the things (iked. Both are employed ai tlie \t?e plant, Mrs. Hurrison in the Laboratory and Mr. Harrison e Warp Knitting Department. Sews and Cooks : <ing care of a child is usually dered a 24-hour job for any 1:1, and getting out a daily let'.o ft husband overseas ]ust les a busy day busier. But Mrs. IB Stitcher Nies, 517 Dilly whose husband, 1st Sgt. Wili H. Nies, has served in the Nor- I'.iie invasion, the battles of :. St. Lo and Aachen, and is fighting inside Germany with |jllrih Field Artillery, finds time [ many other activities besides big: care of "Buddy," her 28- lr!i-olri son, and writing to her pand every day. .

Nie* intend to build after the war. The plans of the new Nies home are • beyond the Intention stage, however, with war bond purchases and savings bank deposits being made with religious regularity, the "G. I. Bill of Rights" being studied for all possible advantages, and small pieces of furniture and household accessories being purchased from time to time by Mrs. Nies for the postwar home. And by the time Sgt. Nles returns home there will be an ample supply of home- canned foods on hand to sooth his palate after years of eating Army "chow." Mrs. Ntes already has nine dozen quarts and eight dozen pints of fruits and vegetables that she "put up" last summer, plus some 50 bottles of ketchup—and she hopes to be able to do more canning this year. : • •• • Keeps Scrapbook One of the most Interesting hobbles found among war wives is that of Mrs. Dorothy Ptrdew Pitzcr, who, with her two-year-old son "Jimmy," reside* with her parents, Trial Magistrate and Mrs. Frank A. Perd/ew, 4H Goethe street. Mrs. Pitzer's husband, Sgt. James £. PiUer, former AUegany Kith School and Maryland University athlete, now serving as a tank commander somewhere in the European theater of war, was a salesman for the Proctor nnd Gamble Co. before entering the service, and although he and Mrs. Pitaer always wanted a home of their own, the necessity of moving from city to city on business prevented them from establishing a home In any particular place. The desire for a home of their own Is greater than ever since the Pltzers have been separated by the war, and since It seems assured that Sgt. Pitzer will receive a permanent assignment in Washington D. O. upon his return, Mrs. Pitzer Is making sure that there will be no lack of plans or specifications to hold up construction of the new house when the time comes to build it. Mrs. Pitzer keeps a scrapbook consisting of pictures she cuts from home and garden magazines, floor plans she draws herself, sketches she makes of furniture arrangements, and a whole array of material on home construction and good housekeeping. Through drawing anc redrawing her plans she is becoming quite an architect, and by rearranging her furniture, and changing her layouts for wall and closet space JOl—ft—flfl-H—(i-^n-g* REMEMBER WHEN —the hanging • lamp hung from the ceiling above the center table in the parlor?

Pitzer Is kept informed of the progress of the plans, but Mrs. Pltzer's chief reason for working out so many of the detail* now Is because she wants to relieve h«r husband of a« many petty worries as possible when he returns to enjoy his home. Save* Home Picture* Cpl. James A. Glover has been In N«w Guillen for 16 months with the Quartermaster Corps and has had practically no association with his two-year-old son, "Jimmy," But his wife, Mrs. Gladys Franlcenberry Glover, who lives with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Frankenberry, Cresaptown, records every move the boys makes and every word he utters, realizing that her husband Is being deprived-of the pleasure of watching his son "grow up," and will want to know all about hLs growth and development when he returns home. Photographs, taken at frequent Intervals, graphically 11- lustrate the boy's growth, and Cpl. Glover will be able to follow almost every day of his son's early years la the thorough record that Mrs. Glover Is keeping. Mrs. Glover also keeps a service scrapbook of clippings, pictures and souvenirs, and although her husband now says that he doesn't want to see or hear anything about his war service after he returns home, she is playing safe—and in case he someday wants to sit down and reminisce with "the boys," thera will be material on hand to refreth his memory. • . The Glovers had an apartment before the war, but they too «re planning on building a home. Since they hnv« most or the furniture they will need, and know pretty well what kind of a house tl>ey want, Nfrs. Glover spends much of hoi time crocheting and embroidering accessories for her home. Spaoe limitations prevent Ih* use of additional examples of the constructive pursuits followed by war wives in the Cumberland area, but the foregoing are a few example* (o dispel the Idea that scrvlo* men's wives generally are neglecting their martial duties, AT FIRST J10N Of A -a -t 't t J'P •Cold PitparatiQnt.asidirtct+4 £> ^F Furnish ly'oiir home completely and smartly at one stroke with Hits'out- standing home value now lei\hired nt tlie City Furniture Company I Or buy any outfit sopuriilcly, ii you dt-slvf. 9 PC.
