With the proper drainage, a garden Under glass will last for months without water. And Miss Anita Persinger Weds Dennis Bonham CEDAR GROVE-Miss Anita Fay Persinger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bertis Persinger of Cedar Grove, became the bride of Dennis F. Bonham. son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Bonham of Belle, at 8 p.m. Friday in the Cedar Grove Baptist Church. .The Rev. Ross C. Harrison officiated and music was provided by Wayne Dicken and Terry Taylor. Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a'floor- length gown of Chantilly lace over organza styled with a high neckline, bishop sleeves and an A-line skirt with back tiers extending to a chapel train. A matching lace headband held her silk illusion veil and she carried a lace-covered Bible with a white orchid. * * * SUSAN SILMAN was maid of honor and Sherry Kincaid was matron of honor.

Her husband graduated from the same high school and is employed by Walker Machinery in Belle. with almost no care at all. All it takes are very simple materials, advises, C. V.'Stanko, horticulturalist with the F. W. Woolworth Co. Any clear glass container is fine, whether it be a brandy sniffer, fish bowl or apothecary jar. Make sure the container is completely clean and dry, Mr. Stanko cautions. This will prevent the soil from clinging to the sides. Because dainage is so important, the bottom should be lined with one or two inches of gravel or pebbies. Next, one and a half to two inches of potting soil, sweetened with a sprinkling of charcoal to prevent souring. * * * THE SOIL should have slopes and valleys, not only because it makes a prettier design but to accommodate plants with long and short roots. Some of the more common plants that take beautifully to living in a glass house are lichen, moss, maidenhair fern, begonia, philodendron, African violet and wandering Jew. You might also want to add tiny rocks, bits of driftwood or a sparkling sea shell. And don't worry if you goof and somehow get soil on the side of the glass. Just remove it with a long-handled paint brush. Now comes the most important part of this botanical borscht: the water. Add, the water (never use soft water) slowly and carefully, warns the Woolworth expert. Add only enough to slightly moisten the soil, pouring the water down the side of the container, rather than directly on the soil. If you have problems squirting the water where you want it to go, use a funnel. TOO LITTLE water is'bet- ter than too much. You can always add a bit more later By Virginia Lee Warreu © Washington Star-News NEW YORK-Sheila Tronn Cooper and Penny Morell Hochman thought they had a good idea and now quite a number of other women think so, too. The idea? Mrs. Cooper and Mrs. Hochman would go to Paris, call upon manufactuers to line up clothes, and later take Americans over an a shopping spree. So far 81 women have signed up to leave here early on'Monday, Oct. 9, and return on the 13th. The two promoters, who are doing most of the paper work for the trip while parked in the Coopers chocolate-colored Mercedes, a r e willing to take 150. The reason for the parked car is that it is the most peaceful spot to be found. Sheila Cooper has two sons, one 2 years old, the other 5 months, and Penny Hochman has a 4-year-old daughter; housekeepers look after the children. At first each person who wanted to go with the group was to agree to buy $500 worth of clothes. This was to be in addition to $350 for plane fare, hotel room, breakfast and lunch. But so many women objected to the $500 requirement that it has been lowered to $200. There is another requirement everyone must be in the size range of 6 to 12. Mrs. on but soggy soil can cause root rot or fungus. And that's all it takes to make your own terrarium (from terra, the Latin word for earth, and arium, meaning a place for.) Keep it in a semi-shaded place for a week and then, depending upon the plants you have chosen, move it into the light or sun the plants require. Turn it occasionally and check to see if the soil is evenly moist. And there you have it. Ecology in a jar that can be enjoyed by anyone, no matter how little space or sunlight your home has.

"The women who go on the trip wjll be offered fashions at 30 per cent or more off the current Paris prices," according to Mrs. Cooper, who used to produce fashion shows and whose husband. Stanley, is with the brokerage house of D. H. Blair Co. * ¥ K MRS. HOCHMAN, who used to be a model in Paris and whose husband, Sam, is a contractor specializing in doing over brownstones, believes that "prices in Paris are generally one-half of New York prices and if a woman spends $500 for clothes over there she will be getting fashions worth $1.200 or more by New York standards." Other recent shoppers in Paris have not found the advantage to be that great--but then they were not buying direct from the manufactuer. At any rate, most of the women who have signed up seem to be thinking more in terms of convenience than economy. For instance, Viveca Lind- fords, the actress, said the other day, "I don't have much time to shop. As a rule, I spend a couple of weeks selecting things and that's it. This way I'll do it all in four days." * * * THE CONVENIENCE is to come about through a system devised by Shelia Cooper and Penny Hochman whereby the clothes they have selected will be brought to where the wom- en are staying and displayed there throughout the mornings. Then the women will try on the fashions and whatever they decide they want to buy will be brought back on the plane with them and the two promoters will take care of custom duties. "We've found that we will be paying on the wholesale price because the actual selling is to be done here," said Mrs. Cooper. "The whole thing sounds like fun, and it will be quick," said Norma Copley, a goldsmith who makes jewelry and who lived in Paris for 25 years before 1964. She heard about the shopping spree from Hochman when he was doing over her co-op apartment. "The trip will not only give me a chance to shop' in a hurry but will let me spend afternoons seeing what goldsmiths over there are doing," she said. About 90 per cent of the women who have signed up are from this area, with em- nhasii; nn ] f\na TclanH Wo*t- Gnitiihsviiie. Aug 7. boy. pndblb on L«ng iSiana, wesi- Brown , Mr. and Mrs. Jam« Edward.
