Society Members Bring Their Heirlooms The history of silver was given by Mrs. Hazle C. Stock before the Twentieth Century Club at the home of Mrs. Edwin C. Henry.

Sh told in detail the ancient art of silvermaking and the symbols used by silversmiths from the Sixteenth century to the present time. Sterling silver, she said, was a highly refined metal which derived its name from the English of the same name: Sheffield silver was the metal annealed to a copper core; and plated silver was electrolytically coated after a piece was shaped. Mrs. Stock displayed from her collection, jeweled boxes from the Orient, gold embossed bowls from France, a pair of ornate Sheffield silver candlesticks from England, a Spanish brass lamp that used oil for fuel and a Grecian Aladdin type lamp that used lard. The members brought for display, heirlooms of mother of pearl.

Sandwich glass, Meissen, amberina. Limoges china, jasper- ware, flow blue, Dresden and Delft. A century od dress was displayed and books from the Sixteenth century. Mrs. finished her talk by saying, own taste is the only arbiter of what is right in your home, but fine silver reflects a person with an appreciation, a sensitivity to the culture of the Stated Conclave Hu- ka Commandery No.

Wallace Termed Pathetic Figure Though a sincere, patriotic fearing man, the merciless searchlight of history has revealed Henry Wallace, 32nd vice-president of the United States, to have been a pathetic figure in American politics. Mr. Bradford White, history major at Hillsdale College, told Hillsdale Rotarians of the motives and events that elevated Wallace to his presidential candidacy on the Progressive Party ticket in 1948. Wallace, an man who felt that he had been double- crossed at the Democratic convention in 1944 which nominated Harry S. Truman for V.

P. was an extreme liberal in both international and domestic affairs. He was so liberal, in fact, that he favored with Russia at any and voiced his belief that Pentagon and munitions makers had deliberately created the cold Domestically, he pictured himself as champion of the minority groups in their against the more favored including Wall Street and big business. White related how a clique of top Progressive Party officials, all communists or strongly sympathetic, almost incredibly isolated Wallace from existing facts of the world at the time. Their method was simple: they flattered his hungry ego with things he wanted to hear.

Now' living in retirement on his farm in New York State, Wallace is no longer associated with the almost defunct Progressive Party. His patriotism overcame his antipathy to Truman when he supported this action in Korea. That stand, of course, alienated him with the Student White was introduced by Arlan Gilbert.

During these many years we have made an incredible number of friends and and business acquaintances. We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every person for his or her part in making the operation of Varnum's such a pleasant and successful one. We extend our sincere thanks to Charles Wilde for his part in managing the store since the death of Henry Varnum.

and also to the staff for doing such a splendid job. They have carried out the policies that Henry Varnum maintained: his service was available to all, day or night. He loved people and was especially interested in the young folks of our community. He once remarked, "We have some fine young folks in Jonesville, and it is always a pleasure to have them come in the store after school to talk while being served. Their conduct is always admirable.

This also applies to the boys of the Manor Foundation who never miss a day to pay us a visit." We hope our many customers will come in and meet the new owners, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Holmes of Eaton Rapids, and will continue to give them the same loyal support that we have received. To Charles Wilde: success in his new business; and to Mr, and Mrs. Leo Holmes we wish success in their new business adventure here.

Mrs. Henry Varnum Charles Varnum.
