It is to carry on a detailed study in all its 12 districts. The women will study California laws as they pertain to four specific fields--inheritance tax, probate, community property, and homestead. This Is to be completed by Jan. 1, and is under Beryl DeWIU of Madera, state legislation chairman. At the recent state board meeting in Santa'Rosa, Federation leaders pledged their eforts in ferreting out any legal inequalities between- men and women. The complete report is to be given at a Board meeting to be held here in Pasadena Jan. 11 and 12, with state president, La Dovia Ellis presiding. * * * FRIEND OF MOTHERS There has been heartbreak here this past iveek. of a most unusual kind. Seven mothers who have been sending their deaf or partially-deaf children to the McKinley School to be tutored and loved, and mothered, and even admonished on occasion in a kindly way, by Mrs. Jessie Burdetta Welngarten, special teacher, have lost their very best friend. Mrs. \VeiiiRarten died Monday, "ft isn't just what she did for our children," one of the mothers said with tears in her eyes. "It's what she did for us mothers. She helped us with every problem about our children, and was so much more than a teacher of academic things." It would be unfair to say that Mrs. Welngarten cannot be replaced as a teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing, what with all the highly-trained experts about these days. Many teachers not only give children academic training and even "mother" them. The tragic question* is--who will there be--like Mrs. Welngnrten to mother the MOTHERS In their search for answers that do not come out of textbooks. * * * HARVEST TIME Marketing Is a chore, but has Its rewards, especially at this time of year when fruits and vegetables are in abundance, with late Summer and early autumn varieties crowding each other in the produce stalls. The last bright red berries of summer get pushed aside to make way for plums, peaches, grapes, nectarines and pears, but there they are a provocative'crimson spot among all the mellow autumn shades. -Summer's harvest has been most satisfactory this year, say the dealers, and fall products promise to be equally abundant and luscious. Both fruits and vegetables have been unusually flavorful as well as plentiful. Besides the satisfaction of picking out her own produce in all this array of the earth's riches, the woman who does her own marketing may enjoy a rhapsody of color. For no matter how nature m^xes up the hues of the rainbow with all their variations, she does it with a skillful hand, and during the harvest season she is at her best. ADAM'S RIB: See Page Dl R. G. Hillmans Mark 70 Years of Marriage Mr. and Mrs. Richard George Hlllman, who are among the longest-married couples in this area, marked their 70th wedding anniversary with a family dinner party this week in their home, 1800 Fletcher Ave., South Pasadena, at which four eenerations were present. * * * ' THE HILLMANS, married in Redwood City Aug. 28, 1887, have been California residents for 92 years and built their present home in South Pasadena 46 years ago.
