Hunter Dial 725-5239 ERA MEETING On Tuesday, Aug. 22. a receptive audience heard Mrs Lela Gardner, Jefferson Terrace explain the Equal Rights Amendment. She pointed out that. if ERA becomes a law. there are more disadvantages than advantages for women. She quoted U.S Senator Sam Ervin, Jr.. who said "We don't need ERA". however, that all his amendments were defeated in the Senate. Mrs. Gardner wore a large STOP ERA badge, the symbol of Eagle Forum, the organization which is the alternative to women's lib. It is their belief that ERA is a big power-grab by the Federal Government and that it will transfer jurisdiction over marrmge, property rights, divorce, alimony, child custody, and inheritance rights out of the hands of the individual states and into the Federal bureaucrats and the Federal Courts Mrs. Gardner urged thinking people to request their State legislators to vote no on ERA.

East Congress Street, has returned from a visit of several days at the home of Dr. and Mrs John Marriott. Burlington, Vermont. Mrs. Stokes flew to Burlington to attend the blessing of a civil marriage of her son Samuel to Carol Ann Marriott. The civil marriage ritual had taken place April 16 in Bellaplains, Kansas, The second marriage ceremony was per- formed in the Burlington Episcopal Church by the Rev. Robert Ebge Aug. 13 at 2 p.m. Following the service a luncheon was given at the home of the bride's parents. While in Burlington, Mrs. Stokes was entertained at a concert performed by Burlington Concert Band which was held on the village green overlooking Lake Champlain. Included in the program, several selections were rendered by the Green Mountain Barbershop Quartet of which Dr. Marriott is lead singer. Of special interest to Mrs. Stokes was a motor trip through the famed mountains of Ver- mont with lunch at the Von Trappe'lodge after which she had the privilege of speaking with Mrs. Von Trappe of The Sound of Music musical. The newlyweds, Sgt. and Mrs. Samuel Stokes returned to Charles Town with the groom's mother where a family picnic was held at their home with Mrs. Lina Stokes, grandmothel; and with Stephen, Calvin, Sam, Middle and Kelly, all children except Paula who lives in Florida.

Another festive occasion was a luncheon on Aug. 17 at the Cliff side Motor Inn, Harpers Ferry, by the groom's parents which included several family members for a going away party for Sam and Carol Ann. Bet you wonder why the civil ceremony. Reason: The young folks wanted to be married in the U.S. before going to Guam but departure orders were changed to a later date which gave them time to have a church wedding in the bride's home town.
