Losey St., is one of 40 American Field Service students studying in Norway this summer. Carol, the first from Galesburg to qualify for such a trip abroad, will return for her senior year at GHS this fall, but some of the students will remain for study in Europe. The following is a letter sent to the Woman's Department of the paper, telling of her stay in Norway. "My stay in Norway with the Finn Arnesen family is coming to a conclusion. I've met many of the 20,000 people of Moss, and I find that they are a free, natural, and uninhibited people who are very fond of the out-of- doors. My experiences have ~' Moss, but I shall soon leave for Oslo where I will stay for one week. The 40 summer students will meet together to evaluate the Americans Abroad Program of American Field Service. We will also go sightseeing. On the 29th of August the summer students will leave by train for Rod- derdam where we will take the MV Seven Seas for New York." Written on Aug. 20, 1963, at Moss, Norway. been great and varied. I have gone swimming in icy cold water, visited the highlands, and played Norway's version of football. People have asked many questions concerning the United States, ranging from American dating customs to the Berlin Wall. "On a trip through the mountains we visited Bjornstjerne Bjornson's home. We also saw the Independence Hall of Norway. We have also gone to Oslo several times. Among the many sights we saw Frogner Park, famous for its statues, Holmen- kollen Ski Jump, and a village of farm buildings originating in the 1700's. We have also seen the King's home and the castle. "My Norwegian sister Astrid, has started school at a nearby town. There she studies Norwegian, German, French, English, mathematics and business administration. Her school differs greatly from GHS. Each class is 40 minutes long and the teachers move from room to room instead of the students. They have a student council in their school, but there are no other activities. "I have had a lovely time in News for and About Women Collector's Jstem • • • by Marion Maxwell Now important accessories in modern decor, trivets, those functional little stands grandmother used to keep hot kettles and flat irons from marring the furniture, are a far cry from their original utilitarian purposes. Artisans who fashioned them are for the most part unidentified. The early hand-wrought ones which came into use in England during the 17th Century were probably forged by blacksmiths who made the trivets only as a sideline. The first wrought iron trivets had three long legs attached to a circular plate or ring at the top with a strengthening stretcher between and were used in the fireplace to hold large iron cooking kettles. In the 18th century as their function changed more skill went into making the top plate. The legs became shorter and the top more decorative and they were used to keep the tea kettle warm on the hearth. The primitive hand wrought ones which are becoming hard to find, show remarkably fine workmanship at a time when tools were few and no patterns or designs available. Trivets came into use in America in the late 17th century although they were not plentiful. Century Later A century later cast iron trivets were introduced. The first ones which were quite heavy, honored Miss Bcrnadine Gricr The engagement and approaching marriage of Miss Bernadine Geier to James Williamson is announced today by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. August Geier of Canton.

Soon cast iron trivets appeared in hundreds of designs and shapes from hundreds of different sources. There were lodge motifs, animals, stars, hearts, horseshoes and harps to name only a few. Some were delicate and others were more sturdy in appearance and were dated in the center grillwork. They ranged in size from the large round ones to tiny ones 2 ',2 inches long by 1 inch wide made to go with a doll's iron. If you have no scruples against adapting authentic antiques to modern use this miniature trivet makes an intriguing door knocker for a young girl's room. Trivets of more recent vintage were mostly flat-iron shaped without handles. Descriptive names include Lyre, Sun and Star, Eight Bar, and Maltese Cross and Crown.
