Capable Shirley Flood served a buffet dinner of fried :hicken and au gratin pota- toes. Thank God, it's not turkey, sighed one male guest who was apparently suffering from a surfeit of the Thanks- giving bird. Music was live and the dance floor was crowded all evening...In the crowd were the Ray Donnells and the G.J. Clendennens...Duke Doyle and Gladyce Trusler, Joe and Mary Girard...the Howard Hensons with his parents, visiting from out of town. Newcomer Jean Hunt and his wife joined the celebra- tion...also Dan and Evelyn Closser and Evelyn's mother from Dallas...and a whole table of Alexanders...The party went on until the wee hours of the morning, we hear. Another party is on the horizon on Dec. 11 when the members of the Stitcbery Club hold their annual Christ- mas party. This year they're having a buffet dinner at the Yact Club. Husbands will be honored guests and there will be live entertainment. The Stitchery will meet next Wednesday at the home of Mrs. Dave Ramsey.

Hardly a week passes that a customer does not bring in an item {purchased from a dubious source} stamped "14K". When examined and found not to be 14K, the purchaser is puzzled and almost always asks, "How can this be so when the item is clearly stamped 14K7" The answer to this is simple. Anyone owning a 14K stamp can stamp anything 14K whether it be a car fender or a ring. Of course it is illegal, but those who do this sort of thing are very transient, never setting up shop anywhere. They usually sell on the sly using the pitch that they are in need of money therefore must sell a treasured item quickly.
