A LULL before a solemn
holiday is felt over Sa
lem this weekend. L.ven
though there -was much of
social activity connected
with the past World war yet
there is nothing to inspire
gay parties and much merri
ment in its annual observ
ance. Thirteen years ago today
society was bent on knitting
things for its men who were
either gone or getting ready
to go; it was organizing Red
Cross erouDS to make hospi
tal supplies; rummage sales
were sponsored for the bene
fit of various "war needs";
and many of the maids and
those a bit older were tuck
ing away the party dresses
and donning service uni
forms and finding them
selves a place in the great
scheme of war. Clothes were
mere essentials those days;
' entertaining was done for
those who were home on
leave or just leaving, and a
little bit later for those in
hospitals who were just get
ting able to be about in tne
So today there is a pause
for reminiscence among the
matrons and maids of socie
ty. And then the gay whirl
fipoat Thanksgiving events
wsl begin. . , ;' ' '.
' Brides are to come in for a
lion's share of the entertain
ing. Affairs are being plan
ned for Miss Catherine Hart
ley whose wedding date has
not yet been announced. Mrs.
Eex Adolph began this series
of parties with a bridge tea
Miss Nancy Savage whose
wedding to Ellis Von Eschen
will be an event of November
24 is being extensively enter
tained. This week Mrs. J. F.
Billiter will entertain for
Miss Savage Monday night;
Mrs. Lars Bergsvik Wednes
day night ; and another large
party is being planned in her
honor Friday night.
Club women from all over
the third district represent
ing nine counties will meet
in Salem Friday and thus
there will be much activity
in club circles.
There will also be a large
tea given Wednesday of this
week at which time Episco
pal women from the nearby
towns are to be the guests of
Mrs. George A. White at her
home between the hours of 3
and 5:30 o'clock.
In addition to these larger
things there will be much
preparation throughout the
week on musical programs
which will be presented dur
ing the next two months.
The first week in December
holds dates for two lovely
concerts a Salem Chamber
Music concert and a Salem
MacDowell concert. The two
symphony groups, junior and
senior, are working hard
each week and much prog
ress is being made toward
the development of greater
music expression for Salem.
