All types of floral arrange-.. ments catch the eyes of Mrs. Earl (Mary) Maurer Jr. of RD 2, Dundee, and Mrs. Abe H. (Esther) Mast of Sugarcreek. Mrs. Maurer, who takes les, sons in ceramics frpm -Mrs. i Wendling, has;discovered; thai; by taking a .course in flowet; arranging : from Mrs? Fred; : Turner of Nevy Philadelphia, she is able v to : make beautiful arrangements in; pieces she makes at ceramics'classes. , The Maurer home is filled '.. with yute arrangements: inV eluding one in an .old-fashioned telephone on the kitchen wall. Some that Mary has designed include pine cone and boxwpod.,wreaths with bows, artificial fruit, candles and birds. .'•'.'• Mary, noted that:in designing the centerpieces, mixing velvet' (fruits) with plastics adds more interest and that it is better to have less than three different kinds and colors of flowers in one arrangement. Mrs. Maurer said advantages in making her own floral arrangements and ceramic pieces are that they are less expensive, more creative and. although they are more time consuming, they are a great pastime. At times, Mary can make an arrangement in half an hour or whip one up in 15 minutes. Wreaths take about four „. or five hours to complete, but Mary works steadily until the project is finished. Once in a while the homemaker gets a."helping hand" from her hUsband 'and children, Eric and Rena, who en- j o y w a t c h i 1 n g "Mommy" create unusual gift items, Mrs. Mast began arranging colored weeds and fixing dishes of artificial fruit and has grown to make arrangements on finished bed posts and backs of mirrors. WJien going-to flower shows, Esther takes a pencil and pad along to write down different types of articles 7 and ways of arranging 'them and keeps various pieces in mind. . . Mrs. Mast does her \vorfc in a storage barn where most of the supplies are stored/She has discovered that making arrangements is less expensive than purchasing them and it gives her something to do in her pastime. "If I see something, my nri'nd works fast and I 'can change it or make it with a snap of my fingers," she stated. "I have found that spraying the finished products with lacquer helps preserve them and they are easier to clean." Although she designs these as a hobby, Esther sends some to area bazaars and makes and gives, them as Christmas gifts. Mrs. Mast says she feels her real talent is not in making arrangements, but in playing the piano. Her family i's musically inclined. • For the first time in four' years, the Mast family comprising Abe, Mrs. Jim (Wanda) Knox of Bluffton, Mrs. Harvey (Bertie) Showers of Sugarcreek, Mrs, Vic^ (Marilyn) Mattevi and Eugene of Lima, and their spouses, 22 grandchildren and a great- grandchild will gather at son Abe's home at Trail for a Christmas celebration and ca- rpi singing 'round the. piano.

We mothers teach our daughters to be good cooks, only to have them change over to hubby's mood of eating after they are married. Evelyn Roth Don't forget about poor hubby ... he has to change from mother's good cooking to wife's experimenting! Heloise Dear Heloise: When filling the fish aquarium or large fish bowl, you always have trouble keeping the gravel in place. To keep the gravel still, place a small bowl in the jot- torn of the aquarium to catch the water. The bowl will rise with the water, but the gravel won't budge.
