A short and to-the-point business meeting is always a problem in women's clubs. We gals cer- lainly get off on a tangent easily. Now. Grace has to plead guilty 1o contributing to the delinquency of a business meeting for it's many a train of thought I've derailed at club meeting. 'I've often wondered h liw the 'minutes would sound if the secretary wrote down a really accurate report of the meeting. If she wrote down everything that went on it might go something like the following. It's an • xagcrated version and it wouldn't happen in any of the club; you and I bHemg t'j Or would 'it? ^ "The President called the November meeting of the Jolly Joint is Women's Club to order", the real minutes rniiiht start "Fifteen men-be: s ie-ponded to roil call." In reality. Madame Chairman was fif'ei n minutes late, her-flf and when she got there- she had to pound l 'o;- navel for another ten minutes in order to yet the uo;r<>n to -top \-ak- \\\n:\ ! .;',!; enough foi ii"i t . b. h",i:d. • * m When Mrs Lena Gulch's name was called on the roll, somebody reported her ill.

She told the group that she had had Tonsilitis for three whole days ;-.nd nobody sent her a card from the Club. If they were that careful about who they sent cards too, said Mrs Smith, they should have lots of money left. At the word Tonsilitis. Annie Amber perked up : . Her boy, Alphonse harl been having Tonsiitis. too •ind she wondered what did Mrs Smith. Jr. do for it. Then the nros and con* of having your tonsils mit when you are a child wore discus.'-ccl and thirty more m'mites went by. Madame Chairman had to pound her gavel and veil for order again. * * • Then, according to- the secretary's report. "The President apked if there was any unfinished business." What business there might have been is still unfinished for it was at that moment tin* I aura Luscious arrived w-aririi; her new fur coat. She wa-; late, as usual. This divided the meeting into three m >ups. One was crowding around Laura, stroking the skin? of the coat and gushing about how beautiful it was. Another. less enthusiastic group w a s gathered over in the corner in- volvd In a low-toned conversation. Then- w;-s an opinion or two voiced in this (lathering that f Lr.ura'; husband. Harry would pay his bills. Laura wouldn't have that coat. There was also •: MV akin;: suspicion that Harry playing around a bit and 'id h"iu:!it the coat as a peace ..ffe.-ing' I:i all probability, this ;ioiip concluded, the coat wasn't mink at all. merely dyed rabbit. The third uroup consisted of Madam" Chairman. Mrs Secretary and the Treasurer. They iworc filming up how much j Lain,- Luscious owed the club i in baek dues. I » * * | "New business consisted of a ! M; '.it n by Mr- Ti//ie Li// that i the club ladie:- hold a Christmas i party for the husbands. Mrs Agatha Earp seconded the motion i <• Santa Claus, Annio Amber 1old of what her boy did on Halloween and like an atomic chain reaction there were forty-seven tales about offspring. Plus three reports about how mael iClra Arthur Armitridge, an absent club member, is always getting at her husband. * « * "There being no further business, the meeting adjourned", says the report. Don't you believe it. There was more business conducted after the meeting ww closed than there was during the official session. The club voted on flowers far Mrs Abernathy, decided on committees and place for the Christmas party and switched the next regular meeting to Mrs Jones' house because Annie Amber was going to have company. Light refreshments followed— Chicken Salad, Hot Rolls, Jam and Marmalade, Pickles and Olives. Pumpkin Pie, Whipped Cream, Ceif- fee and assorted mints and nuts. The rest of the time was spent in social conversation. The whole- club meeting only took six hour? and forty minutes! * • • At pur house this week we are enjoying two gifts from generous readers. The first is a jar of Amber Jam from Mrs Jim Butler of Whitlemore and it is really delicious. Mrs Butler wem the' recipe contest with this jam a while back and it was the first chance we had to sample it. • • • The other gift was both practical and beautiful. Carrie Durant made up a box of vegetables from her garden and brought them down to u.s. The:e were, beets, carrots, squash, pumpkin, radishes and a much appreciated pot of growing parsley. Miss Durant is an artist as well a.s a gardener and they were arranged so beautifully we hated to break up the picture to eat the vegetables. * * • From last week's recipe contest I have a wonderful collection of cookie recipes. There' have been several phone calls from readers who said they would like to see lots more eif the cookie recipc-s in print because the holiday season is coming up. So here's a couple of them that nearly won in the contest. The recipe for Princess Gem.-: THESE WOMEN!

Oct. 15. for the beautiful autumn wedding of Amy Fisher, daughter of Mr and Mrs Frank Fisher and John Boehm. son of Mr Jack Boehm of Spirit Lake'. The processional aisle through which the.' bridal party passed to the altar was lighted by cathedral candles on tall standards. Maurice? Sathoff and Reginald Sehutjer served as altar boys, and lighter! the candles. Rev. B. II. Schwerin perfornled the double ring ceremony m the presence of 350 guests. Entering the church with her father, who gave her in marriage, the bride appeared in an exquisitely designed gown of imported hand clipper] chantilly lace and nylon tulle over bridal satin. fashioned with a fitted bosrnie bodice, buttoned snugly down the buck to a lowered waistline- with tiny buttons. The sweetheart neckline was fashioned with intricate handclipped lace medal- ions appliqued on the sheer tulle. Slender fitted sleeves came to a point of the hands. The very billowing skirt of luce of tulle and satin, was worn of hoops and cnmahn's cascading back into a full circular cathedral length train. The tiered overskirt of lace swept into wide points in front and back. Completing her bridal costume was a fingertip veil of silk illusion net. cascading from a tiered lace shell hall. The veil was the same veil worn by the bride's mother 27 years ago. The bi id"'s only jeweli '• c;v,;;.-. a ;;:Tt '.,!' the f-ar.'ie.i a white oM-hul (rimmed w;lh M"phan;,U.-- on a whi'c bibl.e.
