Adoption Service to Sponsor. Mary Martin Concert Nov. 12 Mrs. Johnston F. Northrop of Mount Kisco, Mrs. Barclay Shaw of Chappaqua, Mrs. Peter Kent of Pound Ridge and Mrs. Frank Mee- han of Yorktown are among the ticket chairmen for the concert to be given in White Plains by mus­ ical star Mary Martin. A block of 2,000 tickets has been distributed to volunteer workers for the Adop­ tion Service of Westchester Inc., 17 Longview Avenue, White Plains, for sale in communities through­ out the county. The concert, \Music with Mary Martin,\ is one in the Broadway star's first national tour and is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 8:30 P.M. at the Westchester County Center. Her appearance in the county will be the first of two in the metropolitan area in a \thumbnail\ review of the suc­ cesses that have identified her with music theater history. The Westchester agency is the only organization in the eastern tour area selling tickets for the concert as a fund-raising benefit. Mrs. Gene Rayburn of Mamaro- neck, county benefit chairman for the Adoption Service, is in charge of arrangements. At a recent meeting of the agen­ cy's Advisory Council, tickets were distributed to the chairmen. Mrs. Rayburn declared that \this is an exceptional opportunity for Westchester people to spend an enchanting evening with the fabulously successful first lady of the music theater and, at the same time, to contribute to the support of the Adoption Service of West­ chester in its steadily expanding much needed service to children in the county needing adoption and to couples wishing to adopt.\ She pointed out that the benefit is the agency's only county-wide fund-raising project this Fall in a campaign drive for a $135,000 bud­ get for 1959 and that the event coincides with observance of the third anniversary of the Adoption Service. Preserve Flowers for Winter Use Why not preserve some of the outdoor beauty for winter flower arrangements? It's easy to do right in your own home, says Prof. Ernest Schaufler of the New York State College of Agriculture at Cornell. No matter what flowers or treat­ ment you use. always remove the foliage from flowers you plan to dry. The natural drying technique works well with celosia, cocks­ comb, delphinium, globe thistle, hydrangea, sumac, and weed plants such as curly dock and milkweed All >ou do is put them in a container without water. Larkspur, dahlias, globe ama­ ranth, goldenrod. wild grasses, thistles, straw flower*;, bells of Ire­ land, and sometimes, marigolds and roses respond well to the hanging treatment Simply hang them up in bunches. For both the natural and hang­ ing treatment, keep flowers in a dark, dry. well ventilated place. The borax and cornmeal or bo­ rax and sand method works best with larkspur, delphinium. Queen Anne's lace, shasta daisy, pansies, mangolds, and zinnias. Spread a mixture of half borax with half sand or cornmeal in the bottom *of a shallow cardboard box. Put flowerheads down on the mixture and cover them with an inch of the mixture. In about a week, the flowers will be dry. Small zinnias, marigolds, and pansies. given the hot sand treat­ ment, keep well. Sift dry fine sand over the bottom of a box. Place flowers heads down on the sand, thr.i cover with about two more Inches o' sand. Then put the box in the brightest, hottest spot of sun jou can find. Anyone of these easy methods will give a winter-long supply of materials for flower arranging. GOP to Conduct Politics School The Westchester Women's Re­ publican Club's annual school of politics will be held on two Mon­ days.

Dancing Class Sponsored By Bedford PTA From Kindergarten through sixth grade, Bedford Village school children may learn the modern dance beginning this month tinder part sponsorship of the Bedford Village Parent Teach­ ers Association. Bvrne Miller of Stamford Road, Bedford, instructress, explains that the course in modern dance can be a first step for a child to­ ward self-expression. \This course is like helping children to master a different language; to see things their own way.\ she points out. Having studies, performed and taught the dance for more than 20 >cars, Mrs. Miller has a philoso­ phy about this art. In essense, the philosophy is this- Modern dance students learn to express what they see, feel and think as they see, feel and think- that is. instead of mimicking what others see, feel and think. While Mrs. Miller will not claim her classes are going to produce another Martha Graham, she, along with the PTA here, believes the course is a distinct opportun­ ity for> the youngsters. Here is one example she gives of what the course did for a tod­ dler recently. The girl, arriving for a lesson, refused to leave her mother and join the other students, at first. As the lesson progressed the child's interest swallowed her in­ security. At the end of the hour this tot actually led her fellow students in dancing to a drum beat. \This is an over-simplication of the way modern dance can help the youthful mind,\ Mrs. Miller said. \But at least, it helps get across the point\. Classes for the children, just beginning, will continue through April 18 and kindergarten through second graders have classes 9 to 10 A. M. on Saturdays and third through sixth graders have classes 10 to 11 A. M. Saturdays. Between 11 and 11:30 Saturdays there is a workshop for fifth and sixth grade students who also are interested in dance composition and performance. Byrne Miller began dancing in the early 1930s. She has been as­ sociated for many years with Lu­ cas Hoving, member of Jose Limon Co., a dance group recogniz­ ed the world over by those con­ versant with the art. She is in­ structing youngsters here under the sponsorship of the PTA for the third year. Parents interested in entering children in the modern dance class should contact Mrs. Jane Jonge- neel, BEdford Village 4-3582.
