Tireen and Barney Threlkekl. th c northeast corner of Arkansas to live, nut Eileen Hetler, a British war bride, who has arrived in Lcaehville to Join her husband, Huston Hetlcr, seems to have just that. This very pleasant young girl from the British Isles and her equally pleasant 13 month old daughter, Ruby, landed in New York a short time ago. Their welcome to tills country was not too exciting, as they were confined to the boat for two days and Mrs. Hetler was required to be vaccinated for sjnall ]x>x, which didn't plense her at all and furthermore, it took. Then by iroop- train lo St. Louis and by train to Blythevillc where Mr. Heller met to accompany them on to ionic at Leachviltc by bus. Mr. Hetler is farming land for Bill Brown of Lcaehville, This Arkansas farmer and his wife from north of London—Peter- nost likely to sue- , ,,„,.„_ to bc cxi , c t_ mc t, O f all places, „ , 'on a merry-KO-rovmd at the Pair. : 1 !f,"' c . < !. a ! 1 , el ^. C L,? f Mi-s. Hetler reports: "His car bump- td mine; they I bumped him and his hat fell off and got all greasy, .so we met." It was the opinion of those present that most marriages usually wind up on a merry go round, but few start off that way. He was an American soldier stationed about nine miles from her home town which made It easy to i follow up this chance meeting al I the fair—and so. they were married. He sailed from England Aug 25 and immediately made plans foi his wife and daughter to join him but when the time came, he almos Kot a wife without a child, because the English grandparents beggc< her to leave Rvtby \vith them to 1 , , , . three of four vears and then they'< on this scholarship b| . ing hcr QVe j. to Ulc SMes tllcm selves. Nevertheless, she made H awa with the baby, her teapot, lea co'/.j and her own stock of tea. Tha brings up thc point that she can 1 understand tlie way the Anu'ricar drink tea. Kirst. they put lemon t t to make it sour,—then sugar t nake it sweet. She also is having difficulty wit his hot weather. She was might sold Bind she luid a cooler "frock" In her bag us 11 was becoming warmer and warmer. In tli e iveanUme, Rut>y was show- Ing off her new shoes. The slices were a birthday (jlft—bul-ns her mother explained, In England if someone wishes to give you clothes for a gift, he must first get the coupons from the person to whom v the dirt will eventually go. And coupons are an Important factor In their lives. She recalled that it was quite o tragedy when her young brother •.lost on,- nf his new shoes in the river while he was fishing with her husband. Those shoes represented seven of the 24 clothing coupons he was allowed for the year. It's different over here. When thc war bvlilcs got lo St. Louis, they went downtown shopping—and such fortunate shopping. Some of the girls, when the management found out (hey were British war brides without stockings, were nylons. There were nine girls on the ship llh her who were coming to Ark- isas to make their homes. It was fairly good trip except Mrs. Het- r wns sea sick nncl thc baby cut vo new teeth, she commented that ie Red Cross had given (hem dls- osable diapers and bottles for . ie babies on the way over. And ' lie also seemed appreciative of ie fact that she was met In Bly- nevillc by the local I * ccl Closs c*- cutlve, Mrs. Julia Limbcrg Hnr- Ison. who took thc family out to :er home for breakfast. Ve.s. sir. „ little bit of England las now taken root In Arkansas, t's mighty pleasniH lo hear » back ard called a "back garden," a rigldairc. a "trie." and candles, "sweets." When a reporter admired the nlttens Iluby was wearing and the sweater Mrs,.Hetler wore, Mrs. Het- ci 1 replied that she made them lersclf, but she added "I would nuch rather stitch than knit." Some time later, a surprised repoi't- learned that stiti.-hing Is sewing.
