Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 24. 1968 C13 Galleon II Houses Uncommon Family M i : Jft? small," she said. Mrs. Smith got away by going to Denmark last summer to have her second child. Her husband was planning to sail to Europe to meet her but had to turn back because of Hurricane Dolly. Consequently the trip has been put off until early next summer; the best time to cross the Atlantic. They plan to stay for a year traveling aboard the Galleon. "My husband couldn't imagine living ashore." she said. "I must admit I like it too. It is a nice feeling to know you can always move." Making a home in what most women would consider claustrophobic quarters is a difficult task but Ytta Smith manages calmly and resourcefully. "Some things are a nuisance and space and double sinks would be nice but are not worth living ashore for. My husband loves living on boats and doesn't need things perfect." He may not. but he seems to have found the perfect wife. continued. "It must be difficult for an American voter to vote on all the offices." She also feels the government at times oversteps its bounds. "In Denmark there is no law against pornography. It is freely sold and not many Danes buy it. It is wrong when you try to have laws to interfere in people's . personal lives. You don't get the results you want," she said getting coffee from the tiny stove. The baby began to cry but the wails turned to smiles as soon as he was sitting in his mother's lap. "It is no probelm having kids in a boat if you take the proper precautions. It is a good life for children. In St. Thomas there are a lot of families living on boats." St. Thomas is home base of the Galleon II. Her husband captains charter sail boats and also checks the qualifications of people who want to charter a boat to sail by themselves. St. Thomas is a rather small place to live, however. "You have to get away, at times you feel the world is too By DIEDRA VAN DUZEE Staff Writer Marinas are known for their colorful boats and fascinating people and the West Palm Beach Marina is no exception. The Galleon II a 32-foot sloop vintage 1938, moored at Pier one is inhabited by the Smiths, a deceptively common name for an uncommon family with a good share of interesting experiences. Attractive Ytta (pronounced Uta) Smith had her first baby, a son now two years old, while shipwrecked on an island in the Bahamas. She and her husband were sailing across the Atlantic from Denmark in an old square rigged Danish freighter he had bought with the intention of using it forcharter. Two other men were aboard to help them. Unfortunately someone wasn't helping enough and they wrecked on a reef an experience she had never contemplated during her days as a reporter for a Copenhagen newspaper. The blue-eyed young woman who speaks rapidly with a pleasant accent it originally from Denmark. During one and one half yean of her journalistic career she reported for the women's section of the paper. "We did more subjects concerning the consumer; more attacks and campaigns," she said comparing the Danish women news to United States women news. We never had weddings, never, never, never, and the same with engagements." About as many Danish women have careers as American women, according to her. "If you've got an education you want to use it. I miss the job with the paper. I thoroughly enjoyed it." Although she likes the United States and would like to see more of it (she has only been on the east coast), in some ways it compares unfavorably to Denmark. "I don't appreciate so much the American system." she observed. "In Denmark there are a lot of political parties you can find the group that suits you." Judgeships and similar offices are not political, she CREATIVE BEAUTY SALON 5904 South Dixie 582-7420 Hair Shaping 230 Style Set 3" & 350 PERMANENT WAVES 10 anil up Staff of Expert Hairstylists Mr. Don (owner) Miss Phyllis Olive LAND HO Two-year-old Stewart Smith is a seasoned sailor and enjoys living aboard the sloop Galleon II as much as his trim smiling mother, Mrs. Stephen Smith. Don't Discard Lipstick Tubes When a lipstick gets down to a nub, there's probably a good deal of it left in the bottom of the holder. Do not throw it away. Either keep such stubs and use them when you brush on lipstick or even better, dig them out, mash them with a little spatula. If they appear dried out, moisten them with a drop of baby oil. Replace the resulting paste in a small jar. thus providing yourself with lip rouge which will last a long time. Miss Katherine Zmn j OFF STREET PARKING OPEN EVENINGS BY APPOINTMENT Stars' Hubbies Tell About It What's it like being married to a star in the public eye? We have just taken at random the husbands of three famous women to see their reactions. CinestarRita Tushingham is wed to Terry Bicknell who positively hates sharing her stage and screen life. He says, "I'm no part of this public lite. I might drive Rita to an appointment, but then I go off and do something else while she's busy. People don't want me there, and it would be unfair to tag along." On the other hand. Frenchman Claude Wolff, husband (and manager) of songbird Petula Clark stipulates firmly, "Who wants a wife who stays at home all the time? I am proud and happy about Petula's success. To me she is a wife, a mother and a star, andion top of all that, she makes lovely onion soup." And finally there is Alexander Plunket Greene, married to international fashion designer Mary Quant, who says, "What gets me down is the people who come up to me at parties and say: 'So glad to meet you, Mr. Quant. And what do you do for a living?' " On the other hand Mr. Plunket Greene does admit to one advantage. "I always call myself Mr. Quant when I phone to book a table at a restaurant. It works wonders."
