Mr. and Mrs. Neal Morton of Champaign, 111., are announcing the daughter's approaching marriage. The bride-elect, now ·a teacher in Rantoul public schools, is a former staff member at the Tucson Young Women's Christian Assn. Her fiance is a commercial photographer and sales representative for the Carl Hirsh- mann Co. By^BETTY 1WLBURN Citizen Woman's Editor What does quality mean to you? Think about it for a minute, and perhaps you'll find, as I did recently, that quality is a very elusive thing--hard to ·de- fine and harder to find. I was lucky enough to be one of the 100 homemakers invited to discuss "The Pursuit of Quality" at McCaU's Congress on Better Living, held at the Shoreham Hotel, in Washington, D.C. What fun it was to sit down in this first year of a new decade, with 99 other women from all parts of the United States to discuss the needs and wants of America's 50 million families. No claim was made that this was an average group. From thousands of nominees, McCall's s e l e c t e d 100 'who seemed most thinking, articulate, active and trend-setting. The average delegate was 33 years old, with an average of 2.4 children whose median age is, 5.9 years. Most, husbands were in professional or executive positions; 92 per cent own their homes; all but one owns a car.. Further, the delegates were selected to give a diverse cross- section of American families, geographically, economica 11 y and by living pattern. Purpose of the Congress is to provide women with an important platfonm to present their views, their likes and dislikes, about today's home products and services. So come along and pretend you're the delegate. Enjoy the fun and see if you agree with us. You arrive in Washington Sunday evening just as the sun sets into the Potomac, casting a luscious pinky-purple-glow over the Capitol dome and the slender shaft of the Washington^ Monument, symbols of democracy the wide world over. A quick cab ride from the airport takes you through Rock Creek Park, and you realize you had forgotten how lush, verdant, almost overpoweringly green and growing that part of the world can be in summer. Those tall trees are the same which saw Teddy Roosevelt riding horseback each day, and which saw Robert E. Lee leave for Arlington to cast his lot with the South. At the 'Shoreham Hotel, you're greeted by the conference co- .ordinator, Jack Oldham, .and over a Coke or a cup of tea, you begin meeting the other delegates. Also attending the congress are observers from industry- research directors, design consultants, sales managers from such concerns as General Electric, General Foods, Westinghouse. DuPont; and award-winning homebuilders from throughout the nation. (The Lusk Corporation in Tucson has won several McCall awards, and its representatives, for example 1 , were eligible to attend.) "Have you ever seen the Lincoln Memorisl at night?" someone asks. So a group of you cab down to the completely breathtaking majesty of that monument to the man who saved the nation. As every schoolchild knows, Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is enisled in stone on one side of the massive seated Lincoln, and his Second Inaugural Address is on the other. But have you read these lately? As Washington and the world fret and fume today over the collapse at the Summit, Lincoln's words»should be engraved in our hearts as well as on our monument walls. Let's remember his warning about insurgent agents "in the Murphy-Bowles Vows Exchanged Saturday --Mi if vet E. Herrtr* MRS. J. J. MURPHY JR. ... Elizabeth Arm Bowles Elizabeth Ann .Bowles became the bride of James J. Murphy Jr. Saturday in a double ring ceremony at St. Ambrose Catholic Church. Elizabeth is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Bowles of Wichita, Kan. She graduated from West High School, Wichita. Ed Sawa'ya gave her in marriage and Mrs. Fred Sawaya served as matron of honor. Mrs. Val Samtrdich and Mrs. Donald Caid were bridesmaids, and the bridegroom's sister Judy Murphy was junior bridesmaid. For her wedding Elizabeth chose a gown of silk organza and lace, fashioned with a chapel train, V-neckline and calla lily sleeves. Her fingertip veil was secured by a tiara of sequins. . Patty Ann and Russell Ross served as flower girl and ring bearer. Mr. Caid, Pat Lopez and Jerry Murphy, the bridegroom's brother, ushered. John Murphy was his brother's best man. A wedding breakfast for the bridal party was held at Vaughan's Monterey Inn, mid the newlyweds received guests at a reception in the Elks Club They will take a honeymoon trip to Las Vegas and California and live at 2926 E. 18th St. Mr. Murphy is the son of Mr. and Mrs. James J. Murphy, 5306 E. 19th St. A Salpointe High School graduate he attended the University of Arizona where he was affiliated with Phi Kappa Theta. An employe of the Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Co., he is a member of Tel-Orators and the Tucson Catholic Labor Society. city seeking to destroy it (the nation) without war--seeking to dissolve the union and divide effects by negotiation." And his resolve to "accept war rather than let it (the nation) jjcrish." What better tim, 6 - as th fi Lincoln Centennial Year approaches, for us to hearken again to these famous words, uttered nearly 100 years ago, and nil "here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." » From the Lincoln Memorial, you walk the full length of the shimmering reflecting pool, around the Washington monument, and down past the tidal basin, with its fresh salt-water smell, to the Jefferson Memorial, where that apostle of greater freedoms for Americans stands massive in white marble splendor. By tliis time, some of you are barefoot, all are weary, and you begin thinking of the 8 a.m. call to order. So you hail another cab and head back to the Shorcham, subdued by the beauty of Democracy's home town, and reminded tha^ quality and better living both have deeper meanings than most of us realize in our day to day lives. Tomorrow: What do you want in » home? Coward- Hatheway Betrothal Mrs. Irene Coward, 1218 E. Mitchell St., is announcing the engagement of her daughter Jeanne Ruth to David Rodger Hatheway. The couple has not set a wedding date. Mr. Hatheway is the son of Mrs. Pauline Hatheway, 3622 N. Santa Rita Ave. The bride-elect and her fiance will graduate from Amphitheater High School next week. Taking his .cue from ihe conference theme, · Douglas Marin told Arizona homemake*s this afternoon, "Our tomorrows are shaped by our todays and our yesterdays." Several hundred women are attending the Hth Annual Town and Country Life Conference at the University of Arizona. This year's theme is "Homemakers Focus on Tomorrow." In his speech prepared for delivery nt the opening session of the four day conference, Prof. M n r t i n traced the history of the university--"the warm, human account of the working partnership of a frontier community and its first and largest i n s t i t u t i o n of higher education." No mailer how great Ihe problems we face today, he continued, they can not compare wilh the d i f f i c u l t i e s of the early settlers who fought for over a generation to survive the attacks of ihe Apache and to raise enough food to feed their families. At Ihe same time, they worked to support a government and build free schools. "There is no more KtJrring story in .the history of the Southwest than the tale of comradeship of the pioneers and the little school they opened amid the grease wood of the desert," he continued. "Out of it came rich mines, unbelievably huge dams which assure continuous irrigation to thousands and thousands of acres of once barren land, the development of Pima cotton which has enriched Arizona, and 20.000 graduates who have enriched not only Arizona but the world." ' Later in the afternoon Miss Jean Wilson, assistant dean of women, discussed "Students in the University Community." Registration will be open in Coconino Hall tomorrow from 3 to 10 a.m. The public is welcome to attend any or all sessions. Opening tomorrow's program will be a panel discussion "Know Your Home Agent" at 8:30 a.m. in the Student Union Senior Ballroom. Miss Lucinda E. Hughes will serve as moderator. Mrs. Verne Alden, president of the National Home Demonstration Council, will speak on the "Significance of Education in the Lives of Homemakers." Highlight of the afternoon session will be an address by Mrs. Iris Davenport Mahan, former woman's editor of Farm and Ranch magazine. She will describe "Achieving Distinction in Dress." The conference c o n t i n u e s through Thursday. TUCSON TALK Walter W.
