Mrs. :hrunc Enjoys Work In Mason General Hospital ':It's a real pleasure," says registered nurse Frankie Zehrung, "to work in such a beautiful hospital with such excellent equipment." Since October, Mrs. Zehrung has been a part-time employee of Mason General Hospital. She was born in Seattle, but raised in Sonora, Cal. where she was graduated from high school. After attending Modesto Junior College, she enrolled in Chico State College. Upon the completion of her schooling she became a Public Health Nurse with the Solano County Health Department. At this time she lived in Vallejo, Cal., and to Frankie and her husband, Robert, were born a son and a daughter. Roderick, known as "Ruddy", is now three and a half years old, and Rebecca is 11 months. Robert Zehrung is employed as a tool m~ker at the Puget Sound Naval Station at Bremerton, in which city the family lived for four months prior to the purchase of their TODAY'S Skokomish Valley acreage. Extensive remodeling and landscaping are under way. Frankie and her husband have completed a garage, doing all the work themselves except for the pouring of the concrete. They hope to grow a large garden and to raise a few beef cattle. Frankie is a member of the Washington State Nurses Association, and she assists with the Hood Canal Pry-school. As a hobby she collects stamps, and also match books and menus acquired on vacations and during their periods of traveling. Since her high school days, Frankie has loved square dancing, and she recalls the many festivities of the California club of which she was a member. "Many of the dancers," she explained, "travelled in trailers as a group to attend meetings throughout the country. Entire families participated, and took their vacations in this way." As a wonderful surprise for his bride just before their marriage in 1964 Robert took a course of square dancing lessons, and promptly became an enthusiast. They square danced in Roseville, just out of Sacramento; a yearly all-night dance was a feature of club activities. "It was great," Frankie declares. "After a seven o'clock dinner, we danced until breakfast, Iota Chapter THE LOVABLE ANTICS of little IRebecca are constant Pleasure' to her brother Roddy and Frankie Zehrung. which was served at 3 a.m. The dancing continued until everybody quit, and this never before 5 a.m., and usually later."

Q. Can I mix two shades of hair coloring to get an in-between color? A. Yes, so long as the two shades are from the same color family. For example, two brown colors, two golden brown colors, or two red colors can be mixed. SHADOWING GREEN EYES Q. I have green eyes, but I don't like the way green eye shadow looks on me. Is there another color I can use? A. There is no "rule" that says girls with green eyes must use green eye shadow. Use any color that flatters you. As a start, why not try blue eye shadow? It will make your green eyes look bluer, especially if used with a blue outfit. Turquoise and dark blue together can give a striking effect.
