By WANDA MAYFIELD
AS A preview to the Easter parades that.wjll be staged
next Sunday a shopping tour of AbileriW outstanding
shops is not out of order. .
Beginning at the corner with LaModewe see a large
variety of dresses and suits in dainty colors with ye)lov and
pink being featured in the window displays. Frothy lace
collars and tailored stitched bands arc important nbtes that
top the style list this season.
Fresh as a spring posy herself Mrs. Minor1 ACC-ox at
Minor's attractive store induced us to look over her array
of Easter bonnets a cleVer lot of flower-trimmed hats in
the latest pastel shades. Catching the eye is an unusually
clever pink straw with a band of blue forget-me-nots swath-
ed in net that encircles the crown. s
Footing the list for the perfect Easter wardrobe the
Zesmer Shop in the Fifth Avenue is competent to suit the
most fastidious coed. Patent sandals are the most popular
sales pink and yellow and green shiny shoes without toes
and with all sizes of heels.
Especially tricky for the spring outfit are. the varicolor-
ed beaded bags found at the Fifth Avenue .shop They are
worthy of these nice adjectives: kaleidoscopic conventional
ipractical (think of all the frocks they can be used with)
attractive convenient and modish.
Other accessories hose gloves bags and slips of col-
orful flowers and fruit are .found in profusion at the So-
rority Shop reminding us of a gay basket of Easacr eggs.
Mary Louise Moore who is to be marridd to Andy An-
derson Easter Sunday April 12 at her home in Abilene was
:omplimentcd with a pre-nuptial shower Tuesday evening.
Doris Clonts and Marguerite Bell were hostesses at the home
)f Doris Clonts on 18th and Walnut streets.
James Graham gave two readings and piano music was
played by Doris Clonts.
The featured item of the evening was a story told by
Marguerite Bell. Using the love story of Cinderella and. the
Prince as a theme the romance of Mary Louise and Andy
was woven in appropriate words. The traditional silver slip-
V pel was brought forward by little Shirley DejfiTBeicher"who
: Gftcd it on the honored guest.

The Mystery Of The Fifth Chair
Is Solved At Last By Catlock Hi
Shining bravely with its green
and ornn'ge lacquer a 'single chair
stands (maybe it's Bits to you I) in
tho middle of the cast sun parlor
in Zcllner If all. There id nothing
wrong with this poor chair but It
is seldom occupied. You don't fnll
through when you sit in It. Why
don't you sit in it? Ah. you are
with your lover (J Eddie's own

late days bedecked with coat andiflIrt wilh thia on0's or tlat one's

groups of two chairs at the front
nnd back probably at tho back.
That chair tries hard to fulfill
Its sedentary function. It Is
brighter than tho other four nnd
Its wicker Is less marred than
theirs by the attacks of nervous
fingers. Its scat is less tired al-
though tho other four chairs on
the sun porch aren't often burden-
ed with fat people. The sun porch
is strictly Lover's Retreat.
That fifth chair is lonely but
it has had its momci.ts.
Wo had to conduct quite nn ex-
tensive research before I learned
thnt. In the Nelson Era the fifth
chair was.fffv tho chaperone. Well'

Porhaps the chair has held a
hot-BO-populnr visitor from home
to a popular Inhabitant of the

found its work to do ih a friendly
conversation among a young cou-

Without doubt that fifth chair
in the enst sun parlor of Zcllner
has found Its greatest happiness in
observing tho joy of others. It
has seen Elico and Little Hcrby
come out for a minute at first

on. It has rcferecd tho little spats
