The Society ol American Flor ists suggests several ways o using heather. Perhaps one o the most attractive is to feature a large spray of the dainty flow ers on one side of a wreath o mixed greens instead of the us ual bow of. red satin. Since the flowers are so delicate, it i wise to select small - leafed greens such as box to avoic overpowering the dainty spray. Many people traditionally gjv a plant of either white or purpli heather at Christmas time. I is believed that luck will hold a long as the plant flourishes Christmas activities reported Christmas activities were reported and a Yule program given when the American Leion Auxiliary met Wednesday evening at the Legion Club. Mrs. H. L. Hettler, assisted jy Mrs. L. H. Mohr gave "Legends of Christmas Hymns and Carols." She also told about Dells, flowers and the trees of Christmas. Carols were sung by the ;roup with Mrs. R. H. Berkland accompanying. Holiday activities of the Aux- liary reported included the giv- ng of 13,000 coffee strips and certificates. New articles valued at more than $25 were sent :o the Clinton domiciliary to be ilaced in a gift shop where hospitalized veterans could select 'rom them to give to their families. The Past Presidents Parley of the Auxiliary sent Christie a s gifts to hospitalized ex- service women in the Independence Hospital. During the social hour, Mrs. H. H. Boyce and Mrs. A. Bianco acted as hostesses. Tables were decorated by Harriett Hirsch and her junior activities group. Beautify Your Home for the HOLIDAY SEASON Throw Pillows Assorted shapes sixes and • Antique satin and embroidered silk textures • Assorted colors HIER WOLF & SONS Thanks to a hardiness which belies its fragile appearance, the little plant is likely to flourish for a long time when given proper care. Growing originally in the misty moors of Scotland, heather likes moisture and should be Occasional kept well-watered, spraying of the leaves is advantageous, too. An amusing little fancy might ie to make small corsages of heather tied with a bright ribbon. These could be kept on a tray near the front door and given as a token of affection and Godspeed to parting Christmas friends. Heather, either in a small pot or a few cut sprays, makes a delightful centerpiece for the Christmas feast. It is also a happy choice for an arrangement on a coffee table. "White heather for luck," say the Scotch. And, whether or not it is truly a magic talisman, it is a beautiful flower and one that is well beloved.
