.W-Z-INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELEGRAM 10NO 1I»CH 13, CAkir v IUNOAT, JANUAIV J1, "All this and link, too" THE BENIGN smiles of completely satisfied people have continued to play on the faces of those who attended the big Ike dinner Wednesday at P a n Pacific a l l through the balance of this week. We talked to s e v e r a l staunch GOP- e r s a f t e r wards a n d a 11 agreed, "Thrill of a lifetime." Even the food was good and, considering that 7200 dinners were served, that's a n accomplishment t o match mounlains! T h e menu: Half a pineapple filled with fresh fruit cocktail -- thick Chateaubriand steaks--garden crisp green beans--fat, baked potatoes --and finally, individual cakes, iced in white and red with the inscription, "Welcome, Ike!" At least 120 people from Long Beach attended which accounts, in part, for the happy looks you've seen about town worn by such localites as Supervisor Burton and Polly Chace, Mildred and Ken Wing, Cecile and Marshall Stone, Frances and Harry Buffum, Ruth and Mac Todd, Emily and John Cottrell, Dorothy and Dan Dunlap--et al. * * * « SNUG as a pair of parakeets In a gilded cage are newlyweds Gary and Kay (Miller) Thompson who are finally all settled In their first apartment at 2223 E. Ocean Blvd. Revelling in their new role as In-laws are "the folks," Margie and Milton Thompson. * * * * : TWO delightful spur of ithe moment parties were .whipped up last weekend ·in honor of Barbara and ·Don Davis, who announced mid-week they will be moving to San Francisco soon. ·Corinne and Vernon Fay hosted a dinner Saturday in their Rolling Hills home which sparkled as brightly as if it had "been in (he ·works" for weeks. Present 'were Dorothy and Bill Macrate, Jane and Jim ·Kresl, Helene and Jack Drown, Georgia and Frende Xombs, Curtyne and Gene .Driscoll, Ann McCarry, and Marge and John Clarke. · Then S u n d a y , about .noonish, Phyllis and Joe Madden and Georgia and ·Frende co-hosted a brunch at Kelly's. Same gang as ;above attended plus Lois and Odie Wright, Margaret 'and Julian Davis and Emily and John Cottrell. At both affairs, by the use of printed signs and letters of "recommendation" Don learned things about his business ability he'd never drenm of before. Not even when he was the most discouraged! But they didn't shatter Barbara's faith in the future. She flew to S. F. Wednesday to go on a house-hunting spree. * * * * AN INFORMAL sandwich with luscious music WBA Unit to Install on Tuesday Mrs. Helen Smith will be inducted as president of Review 15, Woman's Benefit Assn., during installation of officers at 1 p.m. Tuesday in Machinists Hall, 728 Elm Ave. Eleanora Ashby, installing officer, will be assisted by May Potter and Gertrude Seymore.

The engaged couple, downtown that day, began debating the when and where of getting married. Just for the heck of it they walked into the Western Airlines office to inquire about flight schedules for Las Vegas. "It's too bad you aren't ready to go now," mused the ticket seller, "we just got two cancellations for the Celebrity Flight tonight. A bunch of Hollywood stars are going over to open new shows. However, the bus leaves in four minutes for International, so . . ." One, quick confirming glance passed between the two and, sans luggage of any kind, they were soon riding the clouds in company with Zsa Zsa Gabor, Diana Styore, Rosemary Clooney, Harry James and George Jesse!. In fact he was Jessel's seatmate and she sat with the Gabor. Following marriage, vows at the Chapel of the White Stars they toured the town to see how their travelling companions were doing in their simultaneous opening night performances! Who cares about toothbrushes on a night like that! * « * * ETHEL CASE has always had a reputation for taking direct action. Ahout three weeks ago she was musing about how nice It would be to see son, Nelson, and his family in New Hope, Penn. About V/z weeks ago she was there! Naturally, she saw a lot of granddaughter, Ginxi Huestis, and her family who live just about two miles from Dad Nelsons. On one of her trips into New York, Mrs. C. went to see, "Marriage Go Round" and fell into conversation with the woman next to her. Learning she was from Long Beach the woman remarked that she'd heard we have a wonderful community theater here and Ethel quite naturally beamed. She's business manager of the group. "Long way to go for a compliment but worth it" she quipped. » * * # EXTRA fine winter holi- day ended last Saturday for "Rod" and Cal Strong who flew home from Guatemala City, after a three week journey. First they' flew to Mexico Gity where former localities, Jane and Frank Cornwall waited to drive them to their home in G. C. Fiesta! * * + * LONG trail winding into the land of memories was travelled by Gussie and Joe DeMasters, Mary O'Hare and their guest, Bess (Mrs. L. E.) Lester, when they celebrated Bess' birthday day Thursday. Friendships began 39 years ago at Mare Island S h i p y a r d , when "Dardenella" was a brand new tune and "When You H a v e Another's Arms Around You Do You Ever Think of Me" was the best dance tune in the country. Joe was a Marine then stationed there, Bess and Mary were clerks in the accounting office and Red Lester, an ex-CPO, was working in the yard's welding shop. To get as close as possible to the feel of ships, the sea and old memories they chose to celebrate at Tom Cod's colorful s e a f r o n t restaurant on Pier A. * * * * BOTH well versed with the ways of babies, clinically, Drs. Dee and "Ike" Van D y k e are n o w learning the ropes f r o m the other side of the fence -the Qne re . served for parents. Wednesday at Seaside Hospital they heard, the familiar words, "It's a girl", but this time it wasn't an announcement it was* a song, Most "doctored" baby in town, the 7 pound 6 ounce Miss has grandparents by the name of Dr. Milton and Sallie Van Dyke and an aunt and uncle by the name of Sally and Dr. Dick De Golia. Dee and "Ike" are both resident physicians at Children's Hospital, Los Angeles. * * * * LIKE good soup, when a plot thickens it gets better all the time! That's the way tilings are simmering for Soroptimists getting ready to present their annual spring fashion show Feb. 20 at Petroleum Club. Lillian Crawford, general chairman, keeps the. phone busy calling committee members. When the bell rings at Horlense (Mrs. John) Wyatt's home, for instance, or Catherine (Mrs. Edward) Lund- quists they just say, "I'll get it. It's for me." "lnt.rn, Notes From the Sick Bay, 'Doing Nicely, Thank You' Now to the "sick bay" for a cnuple of items. For a few more days, at least, the word "golf" should be carefully avoided in the presence of Charlie Campbell, particularly if he happens to be carrying something heavy at the time. With Gladys and their children, he went "back home" to Hawaii to visit. Naturally, he and his Dad played golf. One day ,i.^j on such an excursion, Charlie, obviously ' « determined to beat his partner, took a "Ah. yes. Hmm" mighty swing at the pelota and tore a muscle. It will heal, of course, but in the meantime . . . sssh. The other accident--Gladys Chapman fell and broke her hip a couple of weeks ago. Quick as they heard the bad news daughter, "Pi" Swett came a-planing out from home in Colorado Springs and cousin, Mable Carlin, converged on the apartment at 3800 E. Ocean from Santa Cruz to help. Thus surrounded by family, sprightly Gladys (already getting around in a walker) has been having a ball. "Pi," who thought she might go home this weekend, brought her newest baby (No. 8), 4-month-old, Caroline.
