Eteughters of 1812 discussing plans for the State Council to be held in Panama City March 23 include left to right, Mrs. Francis D. Campbell of Marianna, Mrs. Marvin McCain, a new member of the chapter, and Mrs. Paul S. Fensom of Port St. Joe. THREE NOTCH TRAIL The magic of a pretty doll in contemporary dress has cliarmed both children and adults for centuries. In sharp contrast to the millions of mass-produced dolls available in toy stores today, are the wonderful old dolls of yesteryear, who were by no stretch of the imagination "child-proof," as their heads hands, and feet were made of such vulnerable materials as wax, tin, bisque, china and glass. Due to the obvious reasons for the scarceness of these old dolls, they have become highly collectable objects. As the interest in "DoUology" increases, many people are beginning to dig into old family trunljs, attics, basements storage rooms — any place where they might find old dolls. Often-times their efforts are richly rewarded. However, many people don't have to look very far to find an antique doll. They may be fortunate enough to have the delightful china-head doll which their great - grandmother played with when she was a child. The value of a treasure such as this is certainly twofold. Besides the monetary vakia of the doll, there is the un- measurable amount of sentiment attached to it. Many readers may possess a doll such as this. Usually very little is known about the doll itself, other than who it belonged to. These doll owners are in luck because the Junior Museum is sponsoring an antique doll show February 24 and 25, at which a nationally recognized authority in the field of antiques, Robert W. Miller, will identify and appraise dolls brought to the show for this purpose. The public is urged to take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn the facts about their charge. Also available at this show will be catalogs from shops where matching replacement parts for dolls may be ordered, Information concerning doll hospitals, made to order doll house furniture, and many other doll accessories. All persons interested in dolls, or antiques in general are urged to see this show and enjoy the wit and wisdom of Robert W. Miller. Parents are encouraged to bring their children to see the many fine examples of the dolls of yeasteryear. Of particular interest to childen will be the dolls like those thejr grandmothers and great- grandmothers played with when they were young girls. The antique doll show will be held Saturday and Sunday afternoon, February 24 and 25, between the hours of 1:30 and 4:30 at the Junior Museum, which is located on Jenks Ave., one block north of Airport Road.
