Distributed to the subscribers the second and fourth Sundays of each month. P. o.

The pool will not open officially for the season until May 21st but it is planned to have it open weekends between now and that date if patronage warrants it and weather permitting. The pool will again be operated under the sponsorship of the Temple Terrace Civic Association and will be managed by Mr. Alvin Parks, assisted by Mrs. Parks. In addition to Mr. Parks, who is an excellent swimmer, another qualified life-guard will be employed. Several improvements are planned for the pleasure of both swimmers and spectators. It is hoped that a water-polo team and a swimming team will be organized to compete against Sulphur Springs and the Tampa Municipal pools. Persons familiar with the pool know that it is one of the finest in the state and one of the few all-tile pools in this locality. It has a capacity of 250,000 gallons and is filled twice weekly with cold, pure water drawn from the City wells. The pool is treated chemically by a chlorine solution, fed through special intake valves, as is required by .the State Health Department. A constant of 25,000 daily also helps in maintaining the and purity of the water. The pool is a pleasant, healtful and safe place, both for children and adults to while away the hot summer days; and in order that State standards can be met and improvements made it will be necessary that the erit1re community support the project and assist in keeping it in a sanitary condition. During the 194g season more than 5000 swimmers enjoyed the pool and it was at no time taxed to full capacity. Tell your friends about this spot and make your plans now for swimming parties, swimming and picnics in the patio---or just plain sunbathing. Any suggestions that will make the pool more attractive or assist in more efficient operation will be N 0 T I 0 E SEVERAL PROPERTY OWNERS HAVE RECENTLY COMPLAINED ABOUT VARIOUS NPISANCES: DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY, THEFT OF ORANGES AND OTHER FORMS OF TRESPASS.

' @ """ .r.1 l g 0 U MR. AND MRS. H. P. WARDWELL Probably one of the best known couples in Temple Terrace is Mr. Hilliare Powell Wardwell and his charming wife, Elizabeth Hill Wardwell. Both are better known by the names, Larry and Betty. Betty was born in Pennsylvania but came to Flor.ida when she was only six, so she considers herself at least part Cracker. She attended schools in Winter Haven and then went North to attend Marjorie Webster College. After graduation, she taught physical education and dancing at &ajorie Webster and at various private schools in and around Washington, D. C. ,vhile still in high school she was active in sports and was a champion swimmer. Betty was recently elected President of the Garden Oircle and since it was first organized has been actively interested in its work and progress. Larry grew up in Maryland--(on the Eastern Shore, which 1!,_not in any way connected with Baltimore). He went to Johns Hopkins University and was active in sports there. He attended law school at George Washington and National University; and was admitted to the District of Columbia Bar (legal) in 1936. After being admitted he worked in the law and enforcement section of the Interstate Commerce Commission in Washington and surrounding area until January of 1942 when he went into the Army. He served in L:ilitary Intelligence during the war and was relieved from active duty in January, 1946 with the rank of Maj or. He spent a good part of his army life overseas and was awarded the Bronze Star medal and four battle stars. In July of 1946, the Wardwells moved to Temple Terrace, after looking over the rest of the state and deciding that Temple Terrace was the best place to live. In July of 147 Larry assumed duties of City Manager of Temple Terrace. He also serves in the capacity of Tax Collector, Fire Chief, City Clerk, City Treasurer and City Purchasing Agent. If anything goes wrong; whether it be a tree down, water b.ill too high, taxes too high, streets not clean, husband staying out late at night, most of the ladies call on Larry for help and he is always ready to help as much as possible. Both Larry and Betty like to play golf; Larry likes to hunt and has a fine hunting dog, 11Happy11 Besides his City work, Larry is on the Civic Club Board of Directors and is on the Swimming Pool Committee. Hardly any civic project has been completed without help from either Larry or Betty, or both. Betty is equally at home and equally good at pouring tea at a fancy party or hoeing weeds out of the flower beds on the Temple Terrace Highway. e

.. GARDEN CLUB The members of the Garden Circle enjoyed a very pleasant and profitable meeting on Wednesday, April 13th. New officers for the coming year were unanimously elected as follows: Mrs. H.P. Wardwell, President; Mrs. Ray C. Knopke, First Vice-President; Mrs. Walter Reynolds, Second Vice-President; Mrs. Laurence Perry, Recording Secretary; Mrs. O.M. Whitman, Corresponding Secretary; and Mrs. Thomas Cureton, Treasurer. Mrs. Helen Renick, as chairman of the automobile tag sale, presided at the selection of a slogan for the new tags that are going on sale this week. "Home of the Temple was the selected slogan. This was deemed a very appropriate slogan since Temple Terrace was named for the Temple orange and the first Temple orange nursery is reported to have been located here. Mrs. A.L. Strickland, who is an acknowledged authority on chrysanthemum culture, was the speaker for tne day. She gave a most enthusiastic and helpful talk on her favorite subject----"The Chrysanthemum". Mrs. Roland Lewis was chairman of hostesses for the day. The luncheon table was unusually attractive with an arrangement of spring flowers in pastel shades. Each member was served an individual cake in the shape of an Easter egg with her name on it. The members are looking forward to the Second Annual Easter Ball, which is to be held at the Recreation April 23rd Temple Terrace has an interesting history that sparkles in places with a touoh of glamour. It seems that the origtnal Temple tree is now located in Orlando, where it is enjoying a ripe old age. W hen Temple Terrace was being established a man by the name of Mr. Collins Gillett set out groves budded from this original tree and those who bought acreage were required to sign a contract stating that they would not allow any buds to be sold for eight years. These were supposed to be the first nursery stock of the now popular Temple orange. Four thousand acres were set in Temple groves and a tower was erected so that visitors oould. gat a better view of the extensive planting. With these facts before us, we decided that the slogan; "Temple Terrace, the Home of the Temple Orange" is not only highly de-sirable but especially BRIDGE CLUB: Mrs. W.M, entertained the Bridge Club last Tuesday. Mrs. Walter ReynolQ.s won high score and Mrs. Mc Sweeney, second. Mrs. Frank Porter wishes to advise.her many that she has had her slip-cover patohed and $Ptings and tied. ****** Mr. and Mrs. Henry Van Dyke are spending the weekend with the Larry Wardwells to the ****** Mr. and Mrs. Robert St. alsoare spending this weekend with.Mf, the Ball.

: e e WHEN WERE .YOU BORN ? If your birthday is between the April 21st and May 21st, your Zodiac sign is TAURUS (The Bull), ruled by the Planet Venus Your favorite jewels are diamonds and emeralds; favorite flowers, lilies and lilacs; lucky star, Venus; lucky day, Friday; lucky color, green; lucky numbers, 3 and 9. Persons born in your division of TAURUS have a keen fascination for acquiring money as the sign influences everything financial. "The Bull" symbol of TAURUS means "I have" and those born under the influence of this sign, with few exceptions, have a generous share of worldly goods. They are natural born "reasoners" and and are successful in all vocations where the use of their head and mental faculties is required. They figure out their own way of doing things and do not like to follow other people's suggest ions. There is e.l ways harmony and order surrounding them, as they are very exacting in all things involving time, measure or any kind of service. Their characteristics in this direction usually make them manager of the business or department in which they are working. They are inclined to be a little bull-headed and want their own way and hate to give in if they are wrong. TAURUS-born men are successful in lines such as real estate, lumbering, stock-raising, agriculture and anything connected with the great out-doors. They also have a natural cunning which gives them a great advantage in matters pertaining to law--and the fact ttat they are natural born leaders makes them successful, in politics. Important undertakings started in June or July are, with few exceptions, very Friday might well be considered their lucky day. TAURUS women make excellent teachers of music and voice as they are by nature very musicai and artistic. They are inclined to be temperamental and often destroy their best talents and chances of success through jealousy. They are lovers of fine clothes and elegci ,nt surroundings and often extravagant in matters of dress and personal apoearance. They also enjoy good things in the home and take great pride in domestic affairs. Persons born under this sign a+e generous and with those whom they like and are just the opposite with persons they care little about. They should strive to cultivate patience as this will helu them to control their quick temper and save them many unpleasant experiences. This sign's influence on sex is very strong and the fickle and jealous of persons born under it often makes them slow in discovering the lovable qualities in the opposite sex. Through this jealous nature they are inclined to be very in their demands on sweetheart or 19ver--and often get perturbed over imaginary slights. TAURUS-born find most partners in marriage in persons born under PISCES, SCORPIO or VIRGO. Prominent Persons Born Under TAURUS Wm. Shakespeare Duke of Wellington Ulysses S. Grant Robt. E.
