Palm Beach Post, Monday, Nov. 18, 196813 It's Christmas Seal Time r$. rs r- Goodwill And Breath For All! is just that. Except that both Ruths, who have been friends for more than 20 years, are taking a bit of goodnatured kidding about it. "Some say it's more line a pregnant pheasant." admits Ruth Shepard. "But that's all right, as long as it's productive for our cause". It goes to show you can't discourage good workers like the women involved in the BY VEDA GRAVES Staff Writer Palm Beach County's honorary chairman for the 1968 Christmas Seal campaign. Miss Ruth Ransom, and her professional associate in the effort. Mrs. Ruth L. Shepard. have a favorite song for the holidays. It's "A Partridge in a Pear Tree." The design on the 1968 Seal Breath of Life campaign of the Tuberculosis and Respiratory Disease Association of Southeast Florida. The seals are mailed traditionally to almost everyone. Some 121.000 appeals in the area, and 90.000 in the county. This year the association and its volunteers hope to surpass last year's returns of $119,000 in the area. Emphasis of the appeal is emphysema, a lung-crippling disease, asthma, bronchitis and tuberculosis. Funds received are used for education, research, health careers in this specific field, development of breathing clinics, and encouragement of "clean air activities." Miss Ransom and her volunteers, who come in daily for a variety of tasks besides mailings, will breathe more easily if each one who receives a mailing sends in even a modest amount. Miss Ransom, a retired registered nurse from the Palm Beach County Health department, where she was the director of nursing, was ap pointed by George Boutwell. chairman of the campaign committee for the southeast Florida association. She has been cited for her work in public 'health service by the county commissioners. She has been an able and charming spokesman for public health and nursing, and active nationally in her proles-sion. In 1957 she was one of a small group of Florida nurses attending an international council in Rome. Upon her return, she helped broaden the public image of the public health nurse. A member of the First Presbyterian Church of West Palm Beach, she has appeared before church and clubs. She came to the county originally to work, with agricultural migrants. Her compassion for them led her into development of public health nursing services. If anyone feels neglected because they haven't received a mailing of seals, or wishes to help with service, they may call or drop a card to the headquarters at 615 Iris St.. West Palm Beach.

Joan Kennedy likes to combine early American antiques with European period ones for an effect of freedomand individuality. (Besides, she looks absolutely beautiful with all that blond hair spread over the raccoon pillows. ) Rafael Ramos Cobian, the biggest film distributor, exhibitor and theater owner in the Caribbean reaches, and his darling Dutch wife, Juliette, gave a party at Washington's International Club for Greek Actor Theo Roubanis and his darling English wife, nee Lady Sarah Spencer-Churchill, daughter of the Duke of Marlborough. Theo and Sarah were in Washington for a special screening of his new film (he stars and directs). It's a Greek-Byzantine scorcher called "lmperiale," purported to smoke up the screen with torrid love scenes. It will be released early in 1969.

Friends also speculated that Jackie is returning to the States to visit her first husband's grave at Arlington on Nov. 22, fifth anniversary of President Kennedy's assassi-natin. Meanwhile, back in our nation's capital, Joan Kennedy has almost finished decorating the bilevel multibalconied residence she and Sen. Teddy Kennedy moved into last March.
