' •. ' , St. Valentine's day found Willits humming With excitement. At the home of Dr. and, Mrs. G. T. Barcklow, Mrs. Baroklow was hostess at a tea honoring her sister, Mrs.^ "M. G. Bell of Nora Springs, Iowa, who is visiting here'with her husband. Mrs. J. J. Keller and Mrs. George Howard presided over the !ea table, which was set with a gold tea service on a lace cloth with white, candles and carnations" as a center piece. The carnation- theme was further carried put by the corsages worn by the guest of honor, the hostess and those assisting. With such a table 'against a room decorated with huckleberry, it is no wonder that the tea- was a success. Another social success on the 14th was the. Valentine luncheon given by Mrs. .Sidney Black for the local small fry. Those attending were the thiree Black sisters, Laura, Maurine and Karen; Beverly and Claudine Recagno, Charmel. and Melvin Butcher, Marjorie and. Bonnie Harrah, Ralph, George arid Sonja Hagg and little Diane Koster. In addition to an appetizing luncheon cooked and served by the hostess, the children had true Valentine cakes. These were baked by Mrs. Jane Harrah, who frosted them in white and trimmed them with red hearts. ' Little Miss Pam Kiraly took advantage of Valentine day to celebrate her fourth birthday with a party of young folks. Although her birthday was actually on the 11th, Miss Kiraly invited Karen Black, Susan DeLong, Gayle Zanella, Glaudine Recagno, Beverly Cinek, Marsha Cameron, Judith Steadman, • Edith Tattersfleld, Patty Quigley, Ellen Williams, Dianne Hildebrand, Sally and Joanne •Johnsrud, Bobby Whittaker, Jerry Stringer and Jock Kiraly on Saturday so they \yould not have to play hookey.from school to attend. All enjoyed cake, ice creain and chocolate milk, served at a table decorated in the Valentine motif complete with matching cloth, napkins, plates and cups; Nor did they overlook the red and white baskets full-of candy that were used as place ct.rds. Beverly Cinek came the closest to pinning Mickey Mouse's tail in thp proper place, so she won first prize. Second prize went to Jerry Stringer; Judith Steadman received third. Saturday night found the dancing population of .Willits at the •Valentine dance sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. With the hall fairly oozing with tradi- tiont' hearts and frills, music by Pacini and his Riffs, and four door prizes, it was even worth braving the drizzle to attend. The first prize, a-$10 merchandise order by Johnson's, was won by the visiting policeman from Berkeley, Bill Bergsen. Bruce Steadman walked off with the second, a $5 order on the J. C. Penney Company, cburtesy of Al Greenberg, while Mr. and Mrs. Herb Waud anticipate two chicken dinners at Andy's, for that is the prize M--^. Waud won. George Recagno took the fourth prize, a 7-piece glass set donated by Sprouse-Reitz. Although .final count has not been made, it is safe to assume that the auxiliary's first dance was a success. ' " All the excitement in Willits was not limited to parties, and the "dance" for the police department had a busy evening. Climaxing an evening of fighting, Lemuel Ogles, David Long, Mirlin Bohall, Leslie Bohall and Robert Withrow found lodging in the Willits jail. At least they could continue their battle verbally while cooling their heels, but Gertrude Hunter-had to stand alone as she was the only woman arrested Saturday. Sunday found things almost quiet, but for the antics of one Thomas Gilley, who the local peace oilicers picked up for drunk driving. Members of .Willits Post 17" American Legion, gave Fred .'itaii- ley a military funeial on Saturday. Mr. Stanley, although not a member of the American Legion, was a veteran of the second world war. Mrs. Estelle Talley, Kenne^ Butin and W. E. Rucker went to Ukiah Monday to attend a dairyman's meeting. It is hard to figure the future cost of milk on paper and approximate the poundage the cow will produce, but the hardest part of all is to explain it to the cow, so she will cooperate. The third of a series of card parties sponsored by the Rebekah lodge was held on February 16. Of the seven tables that played, Ed Quinliven, Mr. Cook, DarroU Page, A. Recagno, Alicia Cureton, Mrs. George Pinches, Gert Orcutt, Helen Smith, Josie Booey, Jiose Federated' Church members, Friday, February 13. Lawrence Hurt and Grover Vann made a business trip to Ukiah this week. Heckendorf and Gil Elliott took high scores. The next party is to be held on February 23. The miracle men of Miracle Maid waterless cooking utensils were busy this past week. Representative See proved how quickly, economically and easily a dinner for 12 could be turned out, -at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Turner. Others w^o enjoyed/the dinner were Mr. and,Mrs. James Smith, Mrs. John Brooks, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Williams, Mr. and Mrs. Stan Turner and Ken Cunningham. Theii on Saturday Mr. J. H. Rea of the same company demonstrated how fat- a small ham would go toward feeding six hungry couples. The home of Mr. and Mrs. Ned Wilburn was the scene of this dinner. Those di.scovering how a complete ham dinner, including eake, would be made and served in 15 minutes, were the Ned Wilburns, Louis Zanellas, Wilbur Pullens and Carl Schloegels, The residents of Willits wpre shocked to hear of the death of John C. Spaletta in Santa Rosa. Mr. Spaletta- was well known among the older residents, as he was with the division of highways at Laytonville 15 years, after which he did private contracting. He was a member of Willits Lodge No. 365, F.&A.M. Tuesday afternoon, Erletta Kiraly wasj hostess to her bridge club members, Margaret Elliott, Rose Heckendorff, 'Violet Wise, Mecca McPeak, Ella> Bondison, Alicia Cureton, Bernice Campbell, Pat Stringer, Mrs. George Jamieson, Mrs. Alex Hansen, and Mrs. A. H. Thompson. There were no prizes awarded, inasmuch as the score is an accuipulative one, with prizes being given once a year. On prize awarding day each member brings a gift and the highest score gets first choice, next highest second, and so on down the lino until even the lowest scorer receives a gift. Now, it is obvious why refreshments were served before the card game began, for one peek at the delicious jelly roll cream torte, or a whiff of the fragrant coffee would take even Culbertson's mind off of bridge. The ambitious members of the American Legibn donned work clothes Tuesday and really worked. Their job was to remove not only all the steam radiators from the Veterans' Memorial building, but to remove all signs of such equip- rnent having been installed. It is all done with due pride over the newly installed automatic electric heating unit. If only some kind Legionnaire would sliow the auxiliary members how it works! The Willits Horsemen's Association will go on their first trail ride on the morning of February 22 at 10 o'clock. The ride will start at the Shell Oil station at the foot of Sherwood road and v/ill follow the road to Brooktrails Guest Ranch, then down the trails back of Brooktrails. All who are interested in horses are invited to attend, but it you have the habit of eating every few hours consider yourself I 'orewarned. Bring your own lunch as the association is furnishing coffee, only. Should you for any reason be us.able to attend on the 22nd, try to be present on February 27 at Leak's hall at 8 o'clock. Hosts for the occasion will Ije Mr. and Mrs. John Brooks and Mr. and Mrs. Russell Edwards. With Valentine day behind us we are looking forwad to the St. Patrick day card party on February 26 at Leak's hall. It will be sponsored by the W.I.C. of Willits, and will feature whist and bridge. Proceeds will be donated to the assistance of the cooperative nursery school. The door prize will be donated by Mrs. Grace Williams. Mesdames George Petersen, Hildebrand, Jack Williams, Gladys McCray. and Erletta ^ir- aly will be hostesse.s for the occasion. Looking ahead, we find that the Lions Club committee for the annual Easter egg hunt is composed of Fred Lindeman, Dr. R. B. Smalley, Louis Bertain and Ward Young, who are to don ears and cotton tails and see that all the children in Willits are once again reassured that there is an Easter bunny, when they find the brightly colored eggs hidden in thickets and on the lawns". Now, at long last, I realize fully what my English teacher used to mean when she said that one word or one comma can change the structure of a whole sentence. It was brought home to yours truly when I read the February 16 issue. As the sentence stands it means that the car driven by Jane Williams jumped the curb while the boy came to rest against a convenient telephone pole. Actually the car jumped the curb, and the boy, then came to rest against said telephone pole. Regardless, none of the three were seriously hurt or damaged. Frontier Day^s Forecast The latest report on the Wililts Frontier Days and Centennial Celebration, according to Louis Zanella, president and general manager, is that thus far three local organizations have volunteered to sponsor a girl between the ages of 17 and ?1, who is single, a good rider, and of course, •pretty, to run as their candidate for Sweetheart of the Rodeo. The three organisations are the B.P.W., Wiilits Horsemen's Association and the American frrfertain Friends At Vaienflne Party Feb. 14 Mr. and Mrs. Charles Sams were hosts at a Valentine party given at their home on South Dora street Saturday.

Rose, Mrs. Pauline Lawson, Leland Hotel, Chuck Fautz, Beverly Hinckley, Diana Hinckley and Carol Brennan. Legion. Besides sponsoring a candidate for sweetheart, the B.P.W. will take charge of the floats to be entered into the parade. The Hot-semen will handle the caravan and be responsible for lining up ranchers for the parade. The 20-30 Club will decorate stage coaches, and will help in the grandstands, selling programs, etc. The Willits Lions Club will be the big shots in the annual Whisekrino contest. Music and uniform groups in the parade will be under the supervision of the American Legion. Advertising will fall into the hands of the Willita Chamber of Commerce. The ball will really start rolling 'or is'it the rope twirling) on February 28, when members of the Willits Fire Deportment will contact business houses for the purpose of selling annual certificates as an advertising medium. It is shaping up to a mammoth event with the orchestra of Ralph Rawson of Napa under contract to furnish the music for all three nights. Friday night, July 2, there will be a free-for-all street dance; July 3 and 4 the dancing will be in the Willits Park pavilion, with the usual charges being made. The Shell Oil Company promises a suppr firecracker display. Shorty Wrightsman will be on hand with his carnival. Credit for much thought and planning to make this Fourth truly something to remember, goes to all the members of the Willits Volun teer Fire Department, but especially to Lou Zanella, previously mentioned; Bob Alcott, chairman of the dances; Lloyd Elliott, certificates; Wilbur Pullen, parade; Alan Sacry, tickets and sweetheart contest; Jack Crocker, caravan; George Harms, Jr., advertising; Louie Bertain, parade music, and Bob Harrah, concessions.
