The Clarendon Prdss, February 8, 1973,Page 2 Shower honors Around town Miss Celli The Pre sbyterian-Episcopalian Sunday School classes have certainly been having some intriguing aswell as informative classes lately. Each session isheldSunday mornings. Thanks to Wesley Knorpp, there'splentyofgood hot coffee on hand. This is one class where you better talk back to the teacher. Enrollment has averaged out to almost a dozen. However, like I said, there's plenty of coffee and chairs are waiting to be filled. The meetingplace is in the Presbyterian base- ment. To date, the class lessons have involved the basic church doctrine. Each session is designed to invite investigation, stucnd discussion. Betty Boston's home was the scene of the February Les Beaux Arts meeting held last Friday afternoon. Acting as this month's hostesses were Mrs. W. K. Hardin and Mrs. Jimmy Roberts. Betty Boston presented the program. This is needle-point for the group. Having previously taught a course on the subject, Betty was able to demonstrate new skills and "tricks of the trade." Each attending member brought an article that she had designed herself. Mrs. L. E. Holloway, this year's President, conducted the business meeting. Plans for future products were taken under discussion. Coffee, tea, finger sandwiches and strawberrycream cUvi- pities were served after the program. I don't know who got the most compliments -- the straw- berry cream divinities or Betty's enthusiastic program! The Les Beauxs really are the "Busy Beesl" The club is planning to sponsor an art exhibit in the Farmer's State Bank April 29. Ben Coals' specialty of Southwest Art will be the featured display. If all goes asplanned, a showing of a local collection of Indian artifacts and relics will be on hand to accentuate Mr. Conls' work. The Frank Whites and Heckle Starks returned from their Ft. Worth trip Friday. The couples have been traveling to "Cow Town" for years together and always enjoy themsel- ves immensely. To situate themselves between convenient shopping facili- ties and the stock show, the foursome lodged at the Broadway Hotel on Lancaster Boulevard. Highlighting the excursion was their tour of the Kimbell Art Museum. The museum boosts of EuropeanandAmerlcan 19th century works of leading masters. "For next year's trip we're looking forward to attending the automobile showing," replied Mrs. Stark.
