Gun Garrel City also has Brawner Hall in addition to their City Hall building. It's just about the liveliest spot in the area. It's used for some activity almost every day and night including Sundays when the congregation of the Beacon Church of Christ gather there for worship services. Last Thursday night was typical. The Fire Department was holding a meeting with Malakoff Mayor A.M. Thompson as their special guest. Mayor D.C. McNeely was circulating between the Firemen in Brawner Hall and the Avanti Sociaty meeting in City Hall. The whole area was buzzing like a bee hive in cotton blosson time. The Avanti group heard good news as President Don Ray, Secretary Margo Green and Treasurer Linda Manning reported on the success of their recent production, "Curse You, Jack Dalton." The cast members and Mayor McNeely's Barber Shop Quartet, who were also a part of the program, declared that they had more fun than the audience. Future plans include many Mabank Wedding & Catering committee to produce a spring Art Show. So all you artists can collect your brushes and start spreading paint on canvas and be ready when Jane announces the time and place. Another ambitious project is the possible production of the timely Bicentennial mu- sical comedy "1776." It's a big undertaking and many talented people would be needed for both cast and production technicians. Don Ray announced that open auditions will be held on Friday and Monday, February 20th and 23rd, at 7:30 in the Band Hall at Mabank High School. If you have a little "ham" in you, can sing a note on cue, drive a nail, slap a bit of paint, install lights, sew a seam, or just generate enthusiasm and think good thoughts, don't hide your light, come forth and shine. The Avanti Society needs you and you'll have ment Women Plan To Organize TOPS Club A group of area women are planning to organize a TOPS {Take Off Pounds Sensibly) Club for the Cedar Creek Lake area. The women, headed by Edna Malone of Malone's Hobby House in Gun Barrel, are planning an organi- zational meeting for Tuesday, Feb. 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the Mabank Chamber of Com- merce Building on Market Street. This organizational meeting, says Mrs. Malone, is to learn if there will be enough people in this area who would like to participate and to explain the organizational procedures to those present. The information to be pre- sented to the group was received by Mrs. Malone from the National TOPS Head- quarters in Milwaukee, Wis- consin. Along with the organi- zational procedures she has statistics regarding it's successes and failures as wll as some of the reasons for them. She noted that unlike other weight losing groups, there is only a small yearly member- some of the best of times with ship fee which is used in part the best of people in one of the for research into causes of best places in Texas. obesity. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::':':':::::i :.':':: :: :: :'::-'::::-'::: :::":::: :::::::::: :'::::: :::::::: the jeweler's more activities to showcase the talented people amoung us.

The nurse put her in a drafty room clad in a scanty costume and promptly disappeared. She grew tired of waiting so when she heard some noise in an adjoining room, she cautiously opened the door. There was a young mand clad in a white jacket so she assumed him to be the doctor. "I was wondering," she said "if we can get on with the examination. I have an- other appointment later." "Look lady," he stammered "I'm from the cafeteria down stairs. I just come up here twice a day to pick up the coffee cups." It is really a humorous incident but it points out how a person placed the the proper sur-. roundings can appear to be an expert on something he knows nothing about. A few months ago a couple came into our store right at closing time. They had pur- chased a diamond from a reputable store down town and then taken it to a discount store where they asked the clerk if they got a 'good deal.' The clerk had knocked their purchase and they were upset. The woman's eyes were splattered with not respect and trust. If a customer feels it is necessary to seek the opinion of another jeweler after a purchase, he lacks the proper confidence in his choice of jewelers.

Quick or old fashioned oats and pecans add a pleasant chewiness, so charming with the butter- scotch flavor. To "curl" the baked cook- ies, turn them upside down on a rolling pin or on several straight-sided glases. Either type of surface should be wrapped with paper towels or napkins so cookies won't fall off. Remove Pecan Curls when cool and store tightly. So good when you're "curled up" by the fire!

Cool about 1 minute, then carefully remove cookies from cookie sheets with wide spatula. wrapped in paper towels or napkins. Allow to cool completely before removing from rolling pin. Sift confectioners sugar into a small flat bowl. To "frost" carefully dip edge of each cooled cookie into sugar. Still another goodie for this season is fruit-nut bread. All the ingredients for this delicious Fruit-Nut Loaf can be mixed in one saucepan, then into the baking pan and into the oven. For variety, use any one of your favorite dried fruits or a mixture of several. The finished loaf can be served plain or with butter.

Why would a seemingly intelligent young couple seek the advice of a clerk in the discount store? This particu- Lar clerk had only been employed in jewelry sales for 3 weeks yet represented him- self enough of an expert to appraise their ring. The proper thing to have done was to have gotten a written appraisal at the time of purchase. Verbal appraisals mean nothing when buying or simply 'asking' for an opinion.
