She progressed at last to knitting squares to be assembled into an afghan, and then to baby booties. "My mother was great for attending meetings where the ladies made items for charity or for bazaars," states Shirley. "She couldn't knit, so 1 went with her to make the things required." When she was in the fifth grade she made her first sweater, a complicated pattern including a design with reindeer. Mrs. Butters was born in Canada and came to Shelton three years ago from Covina, Cal. She and her husband Frank, a machinist in the Bremerton Navy Yard, have three children. Jeffrey is 11 years of age; Brenda is eight, and Cindy is five and a half. Their home is in the Skokomish Valley, where they attend the Skokomish Community Church and Mrs. Butters participates in the Wednesday morning Bible Study. "We're sort of city farmers," she explains. They are raising ten little piglets, with the able assistance of the mother sow, and they grow a half-acre garden from which Shirley cans and freezes her winter supply of vegetables. In addition to her knitting, sewing, crocheting and embroidery work, Mrs. Butters enjoys reading. She is a registered nurse and is often employed as a baby-sitter. "'Anyone can learn to knit," she declares. "There are many good step-by-step books on the market and they are easy for a beginner to follow," She suggest~ as a first pzojcct for a new knitter a muffler or scarf, made in simple SHIRLEY BUTTERS learned to knit as a six-year-old, and still finds the hobby a rewarding one. knit and purl using only color.

WCTU Sets Potluck The Women's Christian Temperance Union will hold a regular meeting and noon potluck on Friday in the home of Mrs. Merritt Wingard, 604 Franklin St. 7' " It was with many misgivings that I attended a New Year's Eve party unescorted, but as I am not one to sit silently on the side lines soulfully contemplating the happy two-by-twosomes, I took up a rather strategic position right under the mistletoe and within easy reach of the punch bowl. I was having a wonderful time until the liquid refreshments began to take their toll. " Gee!" I thought, " I'd sure like to dance." " Well, why not?" whispered my alter ego. " Here's what you do...." The band was playing a rather wild rock-and-roll number, and I waited until the floor was well populated. Then I took a quick look around and slipped unobserved into the melee. With a great stomping of feet and twisting of shoulders, I let myself go, pausing to flash a brilliant smile at which ever gyrating gentleman I happened to approach. Occasionally I got in return a " where the h-- did you come from" sort of look, but for the most part they just grinned back in numbed oblivion. The really sticky part came at the end of each dance set. By careful timing and clever maneuvering I contrived to disappear from the dance floor without emphasizing my solitary status. I employed a number of rather ingenious little ruses. There were my small shrieks of delight and the riotous waving of my Guild To Meet Georgine Reed Orthopedic Guild will meet at noon on January 15 in the home of Mrs. Peter Overton.

I had a ball, and not until the cheek-to-checkers were swaying to the strains of Auld Lang Syne did I forego the floor. As I resumed my former stake-out on the punch bowl, an extremely happy and slightly inebriated fellow approached the buffet for a final bit of the bubbly. He leaned toward me and murmured most confidentially: " 1 came here alone, and I've been dancing without a partner all evening and nobody knew the difference." " You," I thought;" and me; and how many others?"
