CLARION--The marriage of Miss Mabel Dunning, daughter of Mr. and Mrs: M. Dunning of Clarion, to Everett Woodley, son of Mr. and Mrs. WILLIAM FISCHBECK Golden weddings to most people suggest yellow roses and tier cakes, family dinners and congratulations. To Mr. and Mrs. William F. Fischbeck of Ottumwa. parents of Ralph W. Fischbeck, 1104 Adams avenue northwest, their golden wedding Sunday meant that, of course, but in the mind of Mr. Fischbeck, it meant something else, too. Mr. Fischbeck had always said that the day he celebrated his golden wedding anniversary, he wanted to plug a watermelon. It got to be a family joke--watermelon in March. Who ever heard of it? A few weeks ago when the anniversary was approaching, Ralph Fischbeck began making inquiries about the possibilities of getting some sort ofa watermelon for the celebration. He wired to San Francisco and to New York, but the theme song of his quest seemed to be, "Yes, we got no watermelon." He wrote to his son, Ralph, Jr., in Chicago, .asking him to make inquiries, and a lone melon was located at the Stop and Shop. It was the only watermelon in the United States as far as the manager knew and with the care which such im- jortance demands, it was shipped to Ottumwa. Meanwhile the relatives were as- at the Fischbeck home in Ottumwa to celebrate the anniversary. When late Saturday afternoon arrived and no melon, Ralph Fisei- 'et worried, so he wired his son to send a tracer after the famous fruit. It was discovered Harry Woodley of Clarion, was solemnized in the presence of the immediate family by the Rev. C. L. Duxbury of Jewell Brides sister Miss Elva Dunning, served as her attendant. The bridegroom was attended by his brother, Laurence Woodley. Following the ceremony the couple left on a wedding trip.

Production "Snowed Under" wearing Fleisher $ Garment No. 2332 THERE'S still T I M E to win a F R E E T R I P to Hollywood in the National Movie MRS. WILLIAM FISCHBECK Ralpii Fischbeck, Jr., got the melon to bring it to Ottumwa himself. It was necessary to unload one-fourth of a car of merchandise to get it. You can imagine the excitement when it arrived in the Fischbeck home, and no one was more excited er amazed than the elder Mr. Fischbeck who had found his favorite saying had come true. The watermelon shared honors on the table with the tiered wedding cake. It not only shared honors, ut was divided among the 25 relatives. What's more, everyone got a generous portion. It was no puny weakling--as you might expect a March watermelon to be, but a big 42 pounder. Taste good? Ask Ralph Fischbeck. It was one of the sweetest, reddest, juiciest melons he's ever eaten. From the price of the melon with railway fare, telephone calls and telegrams added, the expense of the delicacy mounted t 0 almost $20--but it was worth it. For those who wish to know where watermelons in March come from, a man in Cuba grows about an half acre of them every season, just in case. Mr. and Mrs. Fischbeck are both *3 years old, their birthdays coming within 10 days of each other. Following the family dinner at which the watermelon was divided College 'Y' to Sponsor Production Original Musical Comedy to Be Staged Early in Apnl. t College Y will again sponsor its original musical comedy this year, planning to present it early in April.

Meat Loaf with Mushroom Sauce. --Ground left-over meat; one egg, slightly beaten; one cup cracker crumbs; salt and pepper; milk to moisten; "one can cream of mushroom soup. Grind the left-over meat, add cracker crumbs, the slightly beaten egg, season with salt and pepper and moisten with milk. Pack firmly into a greased loaf pan. Pcur mushroom soup over the top and bake in a slow oven (300 degrees F.) for about thirty minutes. Meat Roll.--Chop the left-over meat quite fine, season it with salt and pepper and perhaps a little onion juice, and combine with a thick white sauce. Spread a thick layer of this on biscuit dough which has been rolled to a thickness of one- fourth to one-half inch. Roll like a jelly roll. Cut into slices about one inch thick and bake in a hot oven until the biscuit dough is done. Serve with left-over gravy or cheese Dressing for Broccoli. A new and different dressing for broccoli is made this way: Melt a package of cream cheese with half as much butter in the top of the double-boiler. This mixed with a little cream, if desired, and poured overlooked broccoli, is delicious. Also good with fresh asparagus or spinach. Avoiding Accidents. There's no place like home for accidents, says Katharine Fisher, of "ood Housekeeping magazine. A little extra care and knowledge will prevent them. For instance, many serious falls are caused by slipping, on scatter rugs, and most of them can be prevented by placing safe "anchors" under all scatter rugs to keep them from skidding. Do not place scatter rugs'just at the head or the foot of stairs, however. To avoid serious falls in mounting to high places, be sure to use a strong ladder or stepstool instead of a chair. Lock the adder in place before mounting it, and use a step-stool that offers a secure footing. Bathtubs are another cause of serious falls. To be safe, all bath- .ubs should have one or more strong rails or handles where the bather can grasp them easily when getting into or out of the tub. Worn connecting cords are dangerous. Check up on all your cords :oday, and replace or have repaired al! worn ones. In disconnecting a cord, grasp the plug, not the cord, and never bend it sharply.. It is safer not to use any portable :lectric equipment in the bathroom. A heater, if used there, should be built in and permanently connected to the house wiring system. There should be no convenience outlet in the bathroom for curling tongs, vibrator, or other devices. The kitchen is the scene of many accidents, especially scalds and burns. To protect young children, turn the spout of the kettle and all handles of saucepans in out of their way. Keep matches, knives, and sharp-edged tools well beyond their reach. Always use a non-inflammable Gloves for Housecleaninjr. "Wear a thin pair of white cotton gloves under your rubber gloves, first rubbing your hands with, cold cream, while doing any dirty work, such as housecleaning," writes a housekeeper. "Thus your hands" will get a beauty treatment and you can also use hotter water. Besides, the rubber gloves slip on easier and last longer."
