They have been there about a year. I planned to take them to a doll parts store in Seven Points for new wigs but the shop moved to Florida before I got over there. I made a purchase in a store  a few weks ago. Wt,-I Jessie and Roxie Robertson opened the trunk of the car to let a stock person put my pur- chase in, he uttered a strange sound and stepped back. I was surprised at his action, then I saw him looking at the dolls. I asked if he thought the dolls were children. He said, "Yes mam. At first I did." He prob- ably imagined himself running in the store and dialing 911 be- fore I could getaway. Doing foolish things seems to be the story of my life. This once - I let Dorothy Arthus push the tight button to talk me into making draperies and cur- tains for her new house Dorothy is such a nice per- son it is hard to say no to her. She has been secretary at First Baptist Church. Malakoff -tMvty-one, years:t have known W.W. and Eliza Robertson her twenty-eight years. In the years I taught Sunday School in the church and the year I spent writing the church his- tory, she was most helpful. I have never heard her say she was too busy to stop her work to grant requests from church members. Arid I have never heard a complaint about any- thing or anybody. This is Dorothy's second house I have made draperies for. I had lots of help with the first job and wasn't eight five years old. My friend Betty helped not only with the hand- work but with my morale When we became tired and weary we could always come up with a prayer, a joke or something that would relieve the tension. Betty is one of my weaving friends. The house isn't finished but the draperies will be by the time you read this. Dorothy hasn't seen them, not even the fab- ric. Hopefully, she will be as pleased with these as she was with the ones I did seventeen years ago. My "cute cutie" for this week happened in the late 1880s. Myuncle, J.B. Scott, related this story to me. He and my mother, Roxie, were wild west cowboys riding the range on - what else? Stick horses. One day when they were herding make-believe cattle, he wanted to cross a stream. Roxie didn't want to get her shoes wet. When he insisted, she practically beat the stick horse to death, but it would not cross the stream. That horse pitched all over the hill until J.B. finally gave in. He said it was amazing how calm the horse became as soon as they changed directions. God's blessings. 489-1463 Ex-teacher says hit road Continued frompage 1A TVCC home base. But it was a visit to Dartmouth College in the late eighties that changed -.everything ...... The busy teacher was attend- mga literary institute on the New Hampshire campus and her sister Helen planned to go along for the fide. But Helen got sick the week before the trip and had to cancel Seeing her disappointment, Doris decided to take her sister along.., vicariously. She pulled together a kind of homegrown travelogue consisting of road maps, written material and tape recordings describing the sights along the route. When she returned home, Doffs listened to the tapes and looked at the other materials she had prepared for her sister's enjoymerm Suddenly shereal- iz, et that she had creatsome- thing of value to anyone travel- ing cross-country by them- selves. She began collecting material in advance of future trips and out of that research came "A Single Woman's Guide to Travel." Now in retirement, Doris is busy as a volunteer for worthy causes. She is starting a ven- ture dear to her heart as coor- dinator of the Newspapers In Education program for The MalakoffNews and she's be- ginning a travel column called TRAVELOLOGY on Page 10A of this issue.

Delgado I thought love was made Up of two people That no one man Could ever completely eradicate. Yet for certain, Fierce and kind hearts do end. My fool driven heart Has lived through the long years Of my youth. But love shall not be its bitter end. Waning through laughs and tears; Happy thoughts still hang a common Place in this old memory box. But I, a poet, Have only my dreams. I gave them to you And spread them at your feet. And heard you tread lightly On them and say "Love is a delighOul kind of dream That one awakes from slowly From kiss to kiss." A NURSE By Joyce Coder, Cedar Lake Nurse Aide To be a nurse would have to be, The hardest job I've seen. Even when it seems to me, It's really sometimes mean, To stick a needle in the arm, Of someone young or old. Even though it does no harm, It takes somebody bold. And if you take a look around, At what she has to do. To her duty she is bound People counting on her too. 0000rlaeki: Malakoffs young folks' :, leave home and head to college, don't let them forget their roots... send The MalakoffNews with them!
