At any rate, Gar;.- died leaving this same woman as his vidow, aad they had, one child, a daughter. Then there .-as Hodolph Valentino, the famous "Sheii-" - and so many more — Mary Pickford, but no O^ea Moore, an actor she married aad divorced to marry Douglas Fairbanks, then he asked for adivorce to marry a Lady Sylvia somebody, and Mary married Buddy Rogers, who was also in one of the magazines. I could go on endlessly with the "old timers", and I remembered seeing so many of the plays mentioned. And of course, Maurice Chevalier, whom I still admire very- much. I made a scrap book years ago which I am loaning Bob and he will get a big kick out of it as it contains many of the persons pictured in his books, but with their families. Marg Dahl sold tickets at the old Call Theatre years ago and with Bob's permission she is going to look at his magazines, too. She saw my scrap book a few years ago. Then there was a paper Bob had kept - a re-hash of items gleaned years ago. The sort of "Dear Abby" column contained a cute question and answer. A girl had been asked to be a bridesmaid for a couple, the groom whom she had met at a party a year previous. It was at a taffy pull and just as she was . pulling hers to the pale tan shade as all we taffy pullers of yore know about, the young man put his arm around her waist and is -»to finally got the taffy that Trouble-i dri-pp-rd vhen her -.list vas encircled by the man -t.o also press*-; her lightly tchirn. 1 ' Trc-utlec ^as advised to accept the triies-aii offer and forge; -tat hapt*r.5d a year ago. Td like to have &:-« of that eooi old ta£y. I; used to be a I;t cf fun and the cazrfy was mighty tasty. A gjod many columns were given covering the triai of some doctors over the question of -ho left the sponges tooloig in James King vno had surgery in ISTZand died from - what shall I call it ? Misdeal ? Fashion note of June, i860, described a house dress of ciel blue to add to the trousseau. I assumed it was made of a rather sheer material and took 20 yards to fashion the garment with pleated skirt, princess waist buttoned up the back (real handy for a house dress!) kilted skirt and sash of upright folds. Sleeves were to be left open part way, making it easier to do the housework. To me it looked like an appropriate formal frock. Pictured to wear with it were two styles of slippers—French heels, one with four straps and bows, the other not quite so fancy, but the same style heels and less straps. She'd have a hard time doing housework in such slippers. I KNOW because I had a pair of patent leather dancing slippers with French heels and I know they're no good for walking. I decided not to carry a slipper bag one fine spring night — just wear the fancy slippers but since there was a slight possibility of rain, I had taken the bag and a pair of rubbers. The rain didn't materialize, but when we had walked from the old Woodman Hall, where the dance was held, and got as far as the Akre grocery, on the Dau garage site, I balanced myself against "Hump" King, my date for the evening, and discarded the slippers and donned the rubbers. vater I" U stwved i horss- dravn vater tani and vas an ad for VoiiSTOgen and Porsche cars. Then there -vas a foldsr of the old Bam Dance gang - the Scngfelioi-s, --to sazg over radio WHO to rr.y delight, but the only two -ffto •••ere ca radio that I remember ~ere Stevart Steelman and Sill Austin, pianist- accompanist. "Fitter and Moll;.-" st-jm i loved were picture: - ether familiar persons, too, and i had such fan looking at it and recalling the programs. I am just SURE "Pepper Young" is a TV announcer now. I am certain i recognize his voice. I agonized too long over "Pepper 's Family" to forget his voice. * * * Thanks to the one who sent me the Disneyland folder. There -•as ao name, toe town was too faint to read, but ended in M so it might be Anaheim. At any rate, thank you. It must be a very interesting place to visit. I was past Knott's Berry Farm where It is located, but at that time there was not a hint of a Disneyland. It seemed sort of like being in the country as there were no houses or buildings. We had eaten breakfast at Fullerton so we did not stop for food. I understand now the area is built up closely. Also, thanks to Glenn Naudain for his Rock Hills, S. C. newspaper which on the front page pictured him with a group of Rotarians who had gathered for the annual conference, held at Wlnthrop College. It Is the second conference to be held in Rock Hills, the first occurring in 1935. Conference co-chairmen were pictured and Glenn is conference secretary. He has taken on some weight since I last saw him, though he was always on the rather "chunky" side. * * * The Sherman Littles of San Rafael, Calif, are enjoying southern California, for another message came from them a few days ago. They were In Los Angeles and the card pictured the Bellevue French restaurant at Santa Monica. So NOW I know who sent the Disneyland booklet. It was Estelle Little, for the handwriting on today's booklet duplicates that on the card of a few days ago. * * * Another ad was "Look Mai No I forgot to mention that the How to improve the atmosphere of any home... with a world-famous Grundig Stereo Add the enjoyment of precision stereo muiic to your home with a beautiful Grundig stereo.

The rest on the program didn't mean a thing to me - in fact, I was bored with their "NOISE." A letter from Gayle Henderson Kierullf bears the news she and Herb and little Katie are moving to Glendale - have bought a house which sounds very nice, and Herb will have less driving to do. She sent me his picture which was in the Pomona paper. He is a fine ng man and the item reads- "Ecoiiomlst Dr. Herbert E. KleruUf has been appointed assistant' economic research manager of Security First National Rink. He holds degrees from Stanford and t'SC." Yeah Man! "If God would grant me tut one thing, Td choose another spring." A fine idea, but I wonder if the man (F. E. Paul) wouldn't ask first for the ability to get around under one's own power to enjoy the spring. That would be my first wish, much as I enjoy spring.
