Y., WEDNESDAY, JULY 20,1949 PAGE FIFTEEN 3 S3a hi About WOMEN By PAT FALLON- Gaming pl'X aloug, dear, and let jreat-?randmother make out hpr wedding invitations," said Mrs. Frances Huxley to the small child who clamored beside her. In the graceful, scrolling script which has earned her clients in many countries, the 58-year-old woman penned these words: "The honor of your pres- nee is requested at the marriage ceremony of France Huxley and Edwin George Hill, Saturday, June 25, 1949, jsi iu o ciuun PAT Holy Apostles FAI.LOX Qurch, Rochester, N. Y." That was nearly a month ago. Now Mr. and Mrs. Hill are happily nettled at their home at 296 OtU St. and looking forward to a honeymoon vacation at Keuka Lake next week. Mrs. Hill, whose first husband died last year at the age of 92, found it "a strange and thrilling experience" to pen her own wedding invitation. Since she was & young girl, she has followed the rather unusual career of pen-engraving wedding announcements and invitations, diplomas, honor rolls and personal cards. Her work has found its way around the world to Latin American countries, the Far East and nearly every European capital. She believes that she and Mr. Hill were first attracted to each other by loneliness and their common backgrounds. Both were widowed after some 30 years of mrried life and both had raised families of their own. Mrs. Hill, who was a grandmother at the age of 36 when her stepson's child was born, takes great delight in the fact that her great-granddaughter was one of the members of her family attending the wedding. Her own daughter served as tnatron-of-honor for her mother, and her grandson was best man for Mr. HilL The couple's nieces and nephews acted as bridesmaids and ushers for the pair.

Seems a former high school music teacher In the. community was a-ahop-ping on a Saturday in one of th city's department stores. A striking, statuesque woman with an admirable store of patience and dignity, she was playing the waiting game in a second floor fashion department, standing stock still, meanwhfie watching for her friend to come up the escalators. Suddenly, she felt a gloved-hand touch the back of her neck and fidget at the collar of the becoming new suit she wait wearing. She turned to see a little woman behind her, panic-stricken and maroon with embarrassment. "Oh, my goodness," sputtered the stranger. "I thought you were a mannequin and I was looking for the price tag on your collar!" LMA JEAX FOULDS, who is currently datelining her letters "somewhere in France," is becoming a modern prototype of the singing troubadours. With other members of the Students International Travel Association, he is cycling from one. Provin cial town to another, singing folk songs in the village square. Her mother, Mrs. HamiUon Foulds of Forest Lawn, explains that after .Alma was graduated from Denison this Summer, she joined a group of some 25 other students and teachers and sailed in mid-June for England. Their leader held language classes " on the boat and also taught them European folk songs, which have gone a long way toward winning them a place in the hearts of the townspeople in the country areas of France. f Before she returns the last of September, she will have done a strenuous bit of biking in Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Scotland, and sampled various types of archaic transportation old-world boats along European rivers and canals, French railroads in the hinterland and pony-carts that creak over roads along the Mediterranean. "pHE TERRIBLE TRIO" Js the title of a true story In the May Wmie of Master Detective, telling the story of the John Gemtner murder by the Gay brothers here in March, 1948. The author is Mrs. Gordon Johnson of Webster, the community's correspondent for The Democrat and Chronicle. JAMMA JANE DLNTRUFF, the proficient and understanding woman who escorted more than 250 "Fresh Air Children" to the area for a two-week holiday away from sweltering New York, is a former local girl herself, and a graduate of the University of Rochester. She spent a few days after her journey here with relatives in North Rose. JENNIE PIZZATI, of 1054 Goodman St. N, 14-year-old East High School pupil, may not be returning to her classes there next year. She will lea'e next Friday for Calabria, Italy, to visit her grandparents, whom she has never seen. She expects to stay in Italy for several months. Protest Restores Service At Store Deprived In Error Horseroom telephones were "temporarily ouf of order" yester day. The -Rochester Telephone Corporation moved quickly in response to Police Chief T. Herbert Killlp'g order of late Monday to discontinue telephone service to "proved" horserooms. Said John W. Morrison, presi dent of the' telephone company: "W have cut off the service to those places listed by Chief Killlp. We haven't yet removed equip ment. We are awaiting a decision. from our attorneys." Said Chief Killip: The telephone company s coop eration Us most gratifying. I am certain we have hit this racket where it hurst most." Fhone Cut Off in Error The reaction to Chief Killip's order that telephone service be dis continued at proved horserooms he furnished a list of 13 such places where convictions had been obtained after raids was virtual ly instantaneous. It was so instantaneous that the telephone of ficials shut off service in a cigar store whi;h was listed incorrestly on Chief Killip s order. The police had it listed at 274 Clinton Ave. N. Telephone work men couldn't find that address, so they moved into the first cigar store available, and shut that serv ice off. It was a mistake, there was a prompt and loud protest. Morrison admitted it was with some reason. The telephone service there was restored. The horserooms on Chief Killip's list didn't have any telephone serv ice yesterday, however. A check of the places In the afternoon showed that a number of them weren't even selling cigars the doors were locked. At the others, even the pay station telephones " had "out-of- order' signs draped on them. Ef forts to call either from or to the telephone proved fruitless. Legal Opinion Awaited What's going to happen now? The telephone corporation is wait ing for an opinion from its attorneys as to how far it can go legally. The ctiy officials, appreciative of Morrison's first response, are sitting back to wait also. Both sides said there was a pos sibility one or more of the "shut off clients might start court action for reinstallation of the tele phonet services. "That," said President Morrison, "is one of the things we've got to face. We're cooperating fully with the city, but if any law actions are siariea, tne telephone company. not the city, will be put to the ex ense of defending them." In a formal statement issued to the press esterday, President Morrison said he had written a let ter to Chief Killip in which he said, "We shall doubtless rekuire your cooperation and assistance in connection with removal of our equip ment from such premises. Killip Pledges Cooperation Said Chief Killip: "The tele phone company - will have all the assistance it seeds." The official statemment by President Morrison follows: "The Rochester Telephone Corpo ration has repeatedly reaffirmed its policy of cooperation with law enforcement authorities in its territory. This was emphatically stated to City Manager Cartwright and the then Commissioner of Public Safety (Thomas C. Woods) as recently as Nov. 29, 1948, in connection with so-called horse rooms. Since tha date, the corpo ration had not received any official advice from law enforcement offi cials until late yesterday (Mon day), when it received a list of 'bona fire' horserooms from Com missioner of Public Safety Brady and Chief of Police Killip, together with an 'order that tele phone service at the premises listed be discontinued. "In pursuance of our policy, we have taken action immediately to discontinue telephone services at the premises listed."

The City Desk sent a reporter and photographer to Hotel Seneca esterday to cover the 42nd annual convention of the New York State Weights and Measures Association. 'Go up there," said the City Desk (if you can imagine a desk saying that) "and find out what's going on." The foyer outside the Hotel Sen eca ballroom was iitterea witn scales all kinds of scales. Among this litter was a young man who turned out to be Charles J. Walker of Syracuse, a representative of the Yale & Towne Manufacturing Co., Philadelphia; There was no one else. Mr. Walker was gently dust- i: 3 a large scale. "Some convention," muttered the photographer disgustedly. "Shut yer trap," said the reporter. Maybe it ain't started yet." . Picnic at Point Pleasant Mr. Walker, observing the two newcomers, put down his dust cloth. "Hello," he said in the man ner of a man sensing a quick scale sale. "What can I do for you?" "What time does, this thing start?" asked the reporter. "Oh," murmured Mr. Walker with just the slightest tone of dis appointment. "Newspaper men, eh 1 Horry, but the convention is over for the day. They broke up at 2 o'clock and went to a picnic at Point Pleasant. But they'll be back tomorrow morning and if you can't make it then, they'll be here Thursday. My name's Walker. Is there some way I can help you?" "Yeah," growled the bored reporter, in the typical manner of Dorea reporters, "you can tell us what this thing is all about: What'T happened here before they left?" Mr. Walker looked sorry. "I'm awfully sorry," he said, "but I can't. I just arrived here a few minutes ago." Even Weigh Boxcars The photographer was fidgety. He nudged his associate in the ribs. Lissen, let's git a shot of this: thing and get outa here." The reporter ignored him. Pointing to the scale, he said to ,Mr. Walker: "That, I suppose, is" a scale." Mr. Walker brightened. "An industrial scale," he said. "We make all kinds of scales. The largest is the kind they use to weigh boxcars. Would you like to be weighed?" The photographer, a boorish fellow with a crude sense of humor, like most newspaper photographers, made sounds like a hungry mule. He was laughing. "Well," he said finally, "trot out the biggest scale and give ol' Boxcar here a weigh." But Mr. Walker was serious. "No," he countered seriously "just take a look at this scale and then I'll weigh you. See? It has a printer attachment. You don't have to depend on the dial at all. Just step up on it." He thrust the open flap' of a book of maches under a contrivance attached to one side of the scale. The reporter got. aboard. The long indicator, swung .back and forth slowly, and finally Out of the side of the printer came the match book. On it in large numerals was the reporters weight. No Chance of Cheating "This sort of thing," remarked Mr. Walker proudly, "makes it possible to keep accurate" records of anything weighe don this scale. Very hand. And there's no chance of anybody cheating a customer. See?" "Yeah," said the reporter glumly. Yeah. Are you sure this thing is right?" "Absolutely," Mr. Walker told him firmly. "No question about it." "Didn't think I weighed that much," replied the reporter, narrowly eyeing the machine for some mechanical defect. turned to the photographer. "Here, you get on." The photographer complied grumpily 'I still gotta git some kind of a pitcher," he said. "Hurry it up Can t stand around here all day gettin' weighed. When the souvenir matchb6ok came out bearing his weight, he shot the reporter a look that plainly said: "You big slob, you." Then, grinning: "Haven't gained or lost an ounce."
