7\ FTER R PHOUGHTS l \ By L ADELINE New Residents 'The Daily Register-Mail, Galesburg, 111. THE RUSSELL SCHMITHS OFF TO AFRICA, MRS. BERG SAILS FOR FRANCE, MRS. MURCHISON AND MISS WILLIAMSON RETURN FROM EUROPE Strange to bo sitting in Chicago writing a column about Galosburg. It is Tuesday late evening—lights of traffic are stealing swiftly along the Outer Drive and beyond is the blackness of the lake that was yellowish today and restless, with while capped waves rushing in to shore. By the time this reaches Galesburg, Mr. and Mrs. Russell Schmlth will be in Chicago board ing a plane for New York and from there will fly to Cairo, Egypt. There, (hey plan (o take the Luxor tour to sec the Valley of the Tombs. While in Egypt, they will also see Miss Mary Patterson, niece of Mrs. Falthc Oltn sted and daughter of Mrs. B. F. Robbins of Alexis. Rome Is next on their itinerary and there Miss Marie Slavcn's aunt, Mrs. Mrnest Martini, will have a call from them. In Paris they will meet Mrs. Schmith's brother, Wilbur Wedan, who will be flying from Casablanca, Africa where he has been doing administrative work for the U. S. Government for three years. Paris will also find them as visitors at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Andre Connan (Gloria , Rerg). There too they will see Mrs. Harold F. Berg who sailed Friday on the S. S. Liberie and was all agog over seeing the Connans and her grandchild again. The thrill of sec ing Paris was secondary. * * * BACK FROM THE 1 CONTINENT in time to say bon voyage to their neighbors are Mrs. J. C. Murchison and her sister, Dr. Elizabeth Williamson who have been gone two months. Their main objective on their travels was to visit their mother's home in Glasgow, Scotland, and to journey to the birthplace of their maternal grandparents on the Isle of Arron. Touring the Robert Burns country was of particular fascination because the famous bard was a third cousin to their grandmother, Mary Burns of Kilmarnock. , Since this was Miss son's fourth trip to Scotland, she had the pleasure of introducing her sister in person to six cousins in whose homes they were guests. Journeying to the Isle of lona, an important seat of the Episcopal Church, they srent three days at the Bishop's house, where also as guests were the Bishop of Edinburgh and his wife and ..on. Thus on their stay, they had the opportunity of attending the services of Eucharist and Compline. • * * Mrs. Murchison and Miss Williamson were not with a tour and much preferred this way of vis iting Europe. They had no difficulty with the language, particularly in France as Miss Williamson speaks French. Three weeks were jspent in England seeing the traditional famed spots including the country of Shakespeare and Sir Walter Scott—this extended slay there was because of the dock strike at Calais, France. As for France, it was a disappointment after the cultural things had been viewed. Paris is not what it used to be and Mrs. Murchison felt the French, in general, to be grasping for the American dollar. Belgium was their next stop and then Holland where they spent a week and saw Queen Juliana twice. Only one week a year does she occupy the palace in Amsterdam and that was the week they were so fortunate as to be there. Once the Queen was inspecting the guard — the Americans foundi (Tuscarora Club Travels lo Black Hawk Stale Park I Tuscarora Club members had somfthing unique in the way of a j meeting this week when the*'«»-, h „ 0ur Amcrican Heri- joyerl a visit to Black Hawk Male P"" 1 „ planned by the program Park at Rock Island.
