Well, the Silver and Turquoise is over for another year. Hostesses will gather at the Old Pueblo Club on Monday, the 13th, to report, rehash, discuss the weather problems and decide on next year's theme. Then they'll busy themselves with other activities during the summer, and start on plans for the 1964 ball around the first of the year. Meanwhile, the social set settles back to recall recent parties, smaller and more private, and plan future ones. Clothes and the weather got their share of conversational attention Thursday evening when Ted and Ann Schoenhair entertained in the newly redecorated African and Gold rooms of Arizona Inn. That was the night it rained--remember? Doormen carrying huge umbrellas escorted guests from their cars, and rain drenched the flower-laden terrace where Mrs. Shoenhair had planned to serve cocktails. But spirits were dampened not one speck! Clothes plans of a few of the guests changed with the weather, however. Betty Haskell wore a stunning black sheath instead of the colorful pink she had planned. Lou Swinehart and June Brainard also wavered in favor of black, although Lou Little stuck to a fringed white sheath; Viola O'Neil, Betty Krucker and Helen Tidmarsh wore blue print; and Peggy Steinfeld brightened the scene in fuchsia Thai silk. Favorite conversational topic of partygoers, however, has been the Art Center nude. Discussing its pros and cons at the Shoenhair party were Edna Amos, Leon Levy, the Fritz Talbots, Betty Ronstadt, Jane Hill, Jeanne Schwab and her visiting sister Gloria Howe of New York, Mrs. Cleon Knapp and her daughter Gail Stockton of San Bernardino, and a great many others. More Party Talk That same rainy Thursday evening, Palmy Fowler invited guests to greet her visiting son-in-law and daughter, David and Patsy Twachtman of St. Louis. . . .

PENNINGTON ST., EVERY MONDAY AND FRIDAY NIGKT TILL I By SUSAN SZEKELY Do you own a house or a car or a bank account? If so, what does it mean to own them? What rights does ownership give you? Are there different ways of owning property? "Ownership is a bundle of rights to deal with particular articles of property," said James A. Robb, Valley National Bank assistant trust officer, in the third of the bank's series of finance discussions yesterday. "The size of this bundle of rights may be determined by the form of ownership." Mr. Robb compared ownership under joint tenancy with community property ownership and emphasized that joint tenancy, an extremely popular form of ownership, may severely limit one's rights. "Of 16.3 million American shareholders, 9.8 million hold stock in joint accounts. The popularity of this form of ownership extends to other property such as bank accounts and cars," Mr. Robb said. Why is joint tenancy so appealing? "It is well known that upon the death of the first tenant property passes to the survivor automatically, free of probate. That is the only advantage of joint tenancy," Mr. Robb emphasized. "It loses some of its allure when analyzed." First of all, Mr. Robb explained, estate settlement costs may not have been eliminated but simply postponed u n t i l the death of the second tenant. Secondly, work and ex- I- e n s e still exist. The change of ownership must be shown on record title to real estate. In order to do this it is necesary to prove by means of an affidavit and death certificate that the first tenant has died. It must also be shown that federal and state estate taxes have been paid or that waivers of these taxes have been obtained. F u r t h e r m o r e , securities must be transferred. What are ihe disadvantages of joint tenancy as a means of owning property? Mr. Robb cited several examples. 1. A husband and wife hold title to a bank account in joint tenancy. The husband dies and in his will bequeaths one half of the account to a child by a former marriage. The will does not hold because property held in joint tenancy is not subject to testamentary disposition (the right to dispose of property by will). 2. A man works for many years and all his possessions are held in joint tenancy with his wife. The man dies and when his wife remarries everything is carelessly reregistered in joint tenancy. The wife dies. Her children by her first marriage are left totally unprovided for as everything automatically passes to her second husband. 3. A husband and wife are childless. The wife has no near relatives and they both agree that upon their deaths the husband's parents will receive everything. Both husband and wife are killed simultaneously. The wife's distant relatives automatically receive one half of the property. "Joint tenancy impedes effective estate planning," said Mr. Robb. "It lulls some people into thinking that a will is not necessary. Some people don't realize they have holdings in joint tenancy and then will draw wills which will be ineffective. "Some people believe that joint tenancy will minimize estate taxes," said Mr. Robb. "Actually it frequently pyramids taxes. The use of a trust device, on the other hand, can defend property from being repeatedly taxable." There are situations, however, in which joint tenancy can be effectively used. These exist when: 1: the estate is modest; 2, both husband and wife are aware of the pitfalls of joint tenancy and have plans for avoiding them; 3. each has complete confidence in the other to carry out the plans. Community p r o p e r t y ownership is dependent upon marriage. It refers to all property acquired by either spouse's labor or industry during a marriage. Property gained by gift, devise or inheritance is not included. Each person's interest is subject to testamentary disposition; each half can be disposed of separately. "At one time," Mr. Robb explained, married women were not given many rights. Under common law, the husband and wife were one and he was the one." Under community property law the wife becomes an equal factor in matrimonial gains. Although the husband is the manager of personal property, he must act in the interests of the community. Conveyance of any property must be joined in by the wife and she cannot be denied -the right to testamentary disposition. "Merely moving to Arizona and bringing property with you does not make it community property," said Mr. Robb. This type of ownership can be established, however, by contract between married parties. Under community property ownership, if o n e spouse dies his share first passes to his descendants. In the absence of descendants, it passes to the surviving spouse. The last session in the Finance Forum will be held Tuesday and Wednesday in the YWCA Auditorium. A. Ney Eldred, VNB assistant trust officer, will discuss "Wills and Trusts in Estate Planning."
