8 Galesburg,.Regi.ster«Moil» Golesburo, HI. Tuesday, Aug. 13, 1963 JlUt People a J ft aces • • • The W. R. AUetisworths Take European Tour Due to a full agenda at a fall meeting in 1962 the president of the local branch of the League of Women voters had to skip over some announcements, one of them being a flier about a proposed trip to Europe. When the hostess, Mrs. W. R. Allensworth was picking up after the meeting she noted three fliers on a trip to Europe, being sponsored by the Wichita League of Women Voters tn Wichita, Kan. After some thought she wrote for further information, and eventually decided to take the tour as did Mr. Allensworth. Called an European Seminar, the tour's purpose was to examine the major foreign policy issues vis-a-vis Western Europe and the United States, with special emphasis on the European Common Market, the United Nations and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Jet Trip Information, talks and tours Were under the guidance of the Associate Consultants for Education Abroad, with offices in London. AH members of the tour, ranging in age from 18 to 80, were members of various League chapters throughout the United States. Six couples were part of the group, under the guidance of a young courier, who had just completed his work at Cambridge for a law degree. The trip both ways was by jet. As an aside, Mr. Allensworth found that many of the questions he answered while traveling were about the jet flight, how high, how fast, where were the clouds and what was it like? During their 30 days in Europe the group stopped in London; Amsterdam; the Hague, where they visited the Peace Palace; West Berlin, with three trips to East Berlin and one to Potsdam; Prague, Vienna, Geneva and finally Paris,\ before returning home. In London they heard the head of the Conservative Party explain about their government and their policies; in Amsterdam the secretary to the employers of industry, gave the details concerning the Common Market and in West Berlin they heard a representative of the state department and a faculty member at the Free University. Part of their trip included a visit with Willie Brandt at t h e city hall, where the welcome was faultless, with white damask cloths on the tables, which were beautifully appointed. Mr. Brandt stressed the need of "a protective roof" meaning the U. S. for West Berlin. Visit Potsdam At Potsdam, which they reached by taking the underground to East Berlin, and then a bus, they had lunch at the castle where the Potsdam agreement was signed. Here the woman who served as their guide pointed out "the difficulties between USSR and US were due to the US not living up to the agreement." She gave the background and then proceeded to prove why she was correct. While in Berlin the group attended the grand opera in the restored opera house, seeing "La Traviata." Lavish settings, beautiful costumes and a 55-piece or­ chestra were all part of the presentation, which is subsidized by the East German Government. In Prague, the group was the guest of the Women's Communist Committee, whose president spent three years in a German concentration camp following the massacre at Lidice. The meeting was in a palace, which has been restored by the state, (the USSR). The committee, which is composed of 100 women, was represented by a dozen members and two men. All spoke through an interpreter. The committee, as nearly as the travelers could tell, was financed through the sale of a magazine. Included in her serious comments about peace and the ways of attaining it the president commented, "they weren't satisfied with what they had but wanted more." This the two groups found to be a common ground. Pointing out that all life is planned by the state, the president stated "there was no unemployment, but that they need workers." Later the group was told by a first secretary in the embassy that "there was no unemployment because if material was Juture $3ride . . • Miss Patricia McCoy Mr. and Mrs. Myron McCoy of Knoxville announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter, Patricia Anne, to Richard V.

As a people the Czechs hope for "a relaxing of our discriminatory trade policies," but would still buy their agriculture products from Russia, and their technical material from the States. Included on their tour were two delightful restful days at an Alpine resort, before traveling to Geneva, Paris and home. — By I. E. J. News for and About Women Miss Dorothy Moore Bride of R.

(UPI) When buying sheets, measure the length, width and thickness to make sure you're getting the correct size sheet, advises Minerva Partin, extension home economist. Flat sheet sizes are measured before hemming, she said. This means that a sheet marked 108 inches will be 98 inches long when you deduct five inches allowed for hems and five inches for shrinkage.
