—Paul Bauer Photo MRS. A. N. HANRAHAN (Sandra Bienemann) A. N. Hanrahans Visit Mackinac on Wedding Trip After a wedding trip to Mackinac Island, Mr. and Mrs. A. Ned Hanrahan, the former Sandra Kay Bienemann, are residing at 500 Greenfield Road. The Rev. L. J. Schneider officiated at their marriage at 11 a.m. July 3 in St. Patrick's Church. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Virginia Bienemann of 1116 Villa St. and Robert Bienemann of Rockford, 111. Her husband is the son of Mrs. William Hanrahan of Escanaba, Mich, and the late Mr. Hanrahan. The bride's gown of peau taffeta was empire styled with A-1 i n e skirt. Re- embroidered Alencon lace and pearls were appliqued on the bodice and on the attached redingote which extended to form a chapel train. Her bouffant illusion veil was held by a double bow of the taffeta with pearl and crystal drops and she carried a colonial bouquet of white carnations and white roses with ivy. Her father gave her in marriage. Five attendants preceded her. Sharon Hupperts was the maid of honor and bridesmaids were Mrs. Dennis Vallner, Edwina Hanrahan, sister of the bridegroom, Barbara Evenson and Patricia Zabroski, cousins of the bride. Their empire dresses had candy coral bodices with oval necklines and elbow sleeves, and melon colored skirts, floor length, sheath style, with flyaway back panels. They wore candy coral caps of petals with pouf veils and carried tropicana roses and foliage caught with green velvet ribbon. The bridegroom had Dennis Vallner as best man. Groomsmen were brothers of the couple, William Hanrahan and Robert Bienemann, with Dean Eberhardt and Michael Zabroski. Cousins of the bride, Charles and Herbert Zabroski, were the ushers. A dinner for the bridal party at the Hub preceded an evening reception at Danish Brotherhood Hall. The bride's mother wore a champagne lace knit over taffeta dress with matching coat, green accessories, and a corsage of tropicana roses and carnations.

ELY, England— (if )—A gold and silver altar cross, created by British artist Graham Sutherland and architect-goldsmith Louis Osman for the high altar of Ely's Anglican Cathedral, has been rejected by the cathedral authorities. The work was commissioned by the dean, the Very Rev. Cyril Hankey, and cathedral chapter. They say they wanted a cross which would dominate the cathedral building. The Sutherland-Osman cross stands only three feet eight inches high and weighs one hundredweight. The dean called it "a great disappointment." "Because of the way its surface is broken up it becomes almost invisible," he said. "We have decided very reluctantly that we cannot accept it." Now the 5,000-pound ($14,000) cross will find a place in the permanent collection of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths as an outstand ing piece of modern work. The Ely Cathedral authori ties have not yet decided whether to commission some one else to make them an altar cross. Graham Sutherland designed the huge tapestry which hangs in the sanctuary of Coventry's postwar cathedral. It has been both admired and criticized. Salute to Missioners by Buddhist Bell MARYKNOLL, N.Y. — i/P) — A huge 114-year-old bell, which once called Buddhist monks to prayer at a temple in Japan, rang out here in mid-June, marking the departure of 47 newly ordained priests as Catholic missioners in foreign lands. The bell, a landmark at the MaryknoU Major seminary here is rung only once a year — on "Departure Day." Healthy, Cool Air for Your Home A modern air conditioning system removes dust and pollen for relief of allergy sufferers. It also controls ef x c e s s moisture and keeps a house comfortable and clean, as well as cool, during the summer months. The big search is on—collectors, buffs, sightseers, (many are calculating females) are rubbing elbows in discovering the gratification of collecting china, or more accurately, pottery, the symbol of today's affluent society. Recently there has been a renewal of interest in the fascinating hobby of china collecting. Why? Prior to the last few years, and since the end of World War II, the hobby went into decline, not because of lack of enthusiasm or interest, but because of space and a change in dining habits. With the boom of ranch-type houses and the dearth of dining rooms, many a collector found herself without the space to display her prizes. With the transplanting of gracious living to the outdoor patio where plastics, crockery or paper all but replaced the elegance of table settings, the status of owning beautiful, rare conversational pieces became almost extinct. Symbol of Elegance Now with the return of elegant living, probably stimulated by Jacqueline Kennedy, and the restoration of the dining room to its rightful place in the home, beauty and good taste are again prompting the search for finer wares. The art of collecting, whether china, pottery, glass or silverware, can be successfully learned and you will add an extra dimension to your family enjoyment with festive table settings of unusual china, silver, or glassware. By learning from others, you avoid costly mistakes that are time-consuming and wasteful, and in most cases losses that cannot be recouped. Read books: After speaking to professionals, they may suggest that you read some books about the category you are interested in. Should you be stimulated towards glass, a book by Richard Carter Barrett entitled "Identification of American Art Glass," shows art glass in full color. Barrett is director curator of the Bennington, Vt. museum. The work describes such items as "Opalescent Custard Vase" with the Inverted Fan and Feather raised pattern in dark red with gilt trim, which comes in complete sets of fruit bowl, six sauce dishes, covered sugar bowl, creamer and vase—a very handsome set that inspires approval from most viewers, and is a proud addition to any home. Ancient Art While on the subject of glass, it is interesting to note that glass-making was a highly developed art in ancient Egypt—and the Romans took the secret home with them when they conquered Egypt shortly before the birth of Christ. The Gauls, Franks, and Britons used glass goblets at their feasts — but guests had to drink chug-a-lug since the glasses had rounded bottoms which couldn't be put down without spilling! This probably accounts for the use of our word "tumbler" to describe a drinking glass. Identifications: Most potters, glassmakers and silver smiths, being proud artisans, identified their works with special markings. In the manufacture of glasswares and china, especially, in their production they had several categories or lines. A clear example of this is the work of Harry Northwood of Northwood, Ohio, probably the most aggressive producer of "Carnival Glass" or Taffeta Glass — an imitation of the more expensive Tiffany and Aurene Glass—who used an "N" impressed in a circle to mark his creations. It is interesting to note, however, that if the circle lacked an "N" there were imperfections in the piece. Risky to Bid Auctions: This can be tricky, and can lead to frustrations unless you are acquainted with the process of bidding and holding off. If not, ask a friend or acquaintance who understands the vagaries of auctions, to accompany you. Remember: always make it a rule to get to the auction in plenty of time to judge the selections at leisure. Another rule of thumb is: set a limit for each piece that you plan to bid on; otherwise, you might become emotionally embroiled with another bidder and let yourself be led astray for later re morse. Often times it is better not to have a piece if it cost more than your entire collection. Decision: What you collect is your decision, if you enjoy your pieces and cherish them, don't let others discourage you. If your tastes run to English Bone, Chelsea, Wedgewood, Lambeth, earthenware, porcelain or plain Blue Willow: or your purse only allows early mail order "Game Sets" or "Fish Sets"; or if you prefer the beauty of glass, be it black, or milk glass, one criterion should prevail. Be pioud of your choice. Sunday, July 25, 1965 RACINE SUNDAY lULLETlN How to Keep a Home Neat SB What makes a home look messy? Stacks of old newspapers, over-flowing closets and waste-paper baskets all contribute to a cluttered look. No cleanup device gets rid of .so many things so quickly and thoroughly as a smoke­ less-odorless incinerator. This, • modem household appliance inspires homeowners to get rid of cartons, paper and as- ,, sorted trash quickly and with, little effort. It saves on cost of garbage and trash removal, <, too. Sticky Varnish Needs Smoothing Will waxing help sticky varnish? Nothing put over sticky varnish will help in any way, according to Gertrude Hoffmann, home furnishings specialist at the University of Wisconsin. The surface of the varnish needs to be smoothed down and the best way to do that is with powdered pumice and steel wool. Mix salad oil or linseed oil with the pumice to make a paste. Dip fine steel wool (number 000) into the paste and rub lightly with the wood grain. When the surface is smooth rub on a paste wax. Monday — Last Day SALE!
