It is one of an entirely hand made collection of Turkish rugs obtained by her father over a pe riod of some 40 years, and she says quite frankly that the col- through the doorway Answering our inquiry for additional information, Mrs. Ruddell pointed out that she did not wish to' appear unduly concerned with the past when it is the present that counts. Her great great grandmother, she explained, was the Countess d'Antichamps, a first cousin of :he famous French writer and poet, Chateaubriand. He wrote a poem for her great great grandmother's wedding which she would never part with and asked to be buried with her along with all the family portraits. Souvenirs were very dear to her, Mrs. Ruddell said. Pointing out two quite ection is her pride. Some of her collection are smaller rugs made, not for use floors, but for use as cush- furniture. These Turkish wall plates, Mrs. large Rud dell said they were of origin Ku tahia. They are 500 years old am have been handed down in her family. A cheaper quality o Kutahia is made now, she added and the raised design on the plates is now very rare. She has several paintings. T\v are by the Hungarian artist. F Zsabo. and one bv A.

Sixteen were present. the belly of the sheep when it is young. Serving tea at her carved antique Japanese table while seated on an authentic Louis Phillipe mahogany sofa, Mrs. Ruddell explained that the sofa and its matching arm chairs and chairs once belonged to her maternity great-great grandmother who was from Brittany in France. some colors which she believes to hav been painted by a Russian artis From a French glass cabinet, Mrs. Ruddell withdrew a pure white alabaster Chinese vase which had been given to her father by the Turkish Minister of the Interior. Her father has his own tobacco business, and engages in commerce with the American and German firms. Among other articles of interest that the cabinet holds are two clay plates which were found in the antique ruins of Ephesus, ne of the seven towns of Asia linor, B.C. A tear vial from the tiins is said to have been used or burial in the tombs, filled /ith the tears of mourners. In the dining room of her home, Irs. Ruddell showed us a brass ay, hand etched, that had be- onged to the Sultan's household nd bears the stamp to verify it. Jso from the Sultan's household vas a sterling silver hand-made -ase that is one pound of solid ilver. Another very rare and precious wssession is the liqueur cabinet nadeof rosewood, which dates back to Louis XVI. It is complete with a stand inside, bottles and {lasses. These are just some of the rare and lovely furnishings in the Ruddell home. Because shipping them from place to place has caused some damage, ' Mrs. Rude! hopes to dispose of them before it becomes necessary to move again. It is her hope that when Carl': assignment in Greenland ha been completed he will return to Turkey arid she and the girls can join him there. It was in her home country that she met Carl in 1956 when he was serving with NATO. They were married the same year. In March, 1959, they came to Wellsville for a visit prior to going on to Keesler A.F.B., Biloxi. Miss., where Carl was stationed until July of this year. Looking ahead to the future, we asked Mrs. Ruddell what type of furnishings she planned for her home when she had disposed of those she has presently. She ex- alained that, if she returned to Turkey, she would prefer Greek furnishings, which are hand-made and hand-carved. However, there will likely be at least one American made furnishing in her home for, as she emarked with appreciative aughter, "Nothing can beat the American spring mattress."
