The three men often wondered if they were crazy, and so did some of their friends. to invesl so much money imo a trailer park on Longboat Key that mighl never be discovered by the rest of the world .

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor: "Constitutional Revisions?" If you do not have an educated opinion, why not try to obtain one. Your suggestion to vote " no right down the line" is indeed. " acopout" and a display of ignorance. I suggest you review "Common Cause", the thoughtful, careful work of the League of Women Volers, to name a few of the many sources available to you. I trust yo ur advertisers will make note of your irresponsibility. Mabel L. Richardson Longboat Key Editor' s reply: Ms . Mabel L. Richardson (Councellor at Law) is entitled to her opinion as is Common Cause, The League of Women Voters and THE OBSERVER. Ms. Richardson doesn't say how she stands on the issues, but Common Cause and the LWV disagree on 5 of the nine. We are pleased 10 print her l,tler and we feel thai most advertisers would not think us ' ~i rre spons ible" for not agreeing with them on matlers of polilics. Afler having read at leasl fi ve different opinions and analyses of the proposed revisions. we feel that a "display of confusio n" might be a more accurale appelation than a "display of ignorance" . The voters of course had the final word and vOled " no " on all of the nine proposed re\ isions.

by Janet F. Post Corundum is by far the most imponant of the colored gem minerals. Almost any of the many colors and qualities are desirable. Golden sapphires often are very attractive and also pink, paJe blue stones, plum sapphires and many other types. When a jeweler offers ruby and sapphire, he offers not only beauty, but durability. Only very heavily flawed stars are the subjeci of concern with respect to durability \Lnlike such stones as emerald , which is rather too fragf"-f>r a man 's ring . any o f the corundum varieties are practical for men and women alike. The word corundum came to us through the French "corindon " from the old Hindu word " korund ". Ruby is from the Latin " ruber", meaning red. In ancient times, it .:; was believed thai if one wore a ruby, he would be blessed with health, wealth , wisdom and outslanding success in affairs of the heart . Further, he acquired the magic ability to live in peace with his enemies. provided a ruby ring was worn o n the left hand or ruby brooch on the left side. Early Romans included it with other red Slones under Ihe name "Carbunculus". These stones were imitated in glass, and were easy to counterfeit by the art and skills of the lapidaries, who put a piece of foil beneath them 10 make them brilliant and g litter like fire . The Bible says Ihat the ruby represenled Ihe tribe of Judah . This noble gem has always been a favorile adornment for royal crowns, and from Judah sprang the royalty of Israel. The Hindu s believed for centuries thai the while (colorless) sapphire was an " unripe " ruby that would eventually "mature". And even in the last few hundred years , many believed in the therapeutic action of rubies and other gemstones. There was even a famous " ruby elixer" compounded by a secret process at greal expense and was .:; used by only wealthy patients in Cashmere . Large gem quality rubies are not common , therefore , only a few specimens have gained importance . No gem expert has ever examined such monstrous rubies as are described in medieval romances and Oriental lilerature. If such stones actually exisled. they probably were garnets or to urmalines or were non-transparem. The American Museum of NalUral History displays one of the largesl star rubies in ex istence; the 100 carat Edith Haggin de Long Star Ruby . Ruby is the accepted birthstone for July . Because of its importance in the gem field , it has been greally imitated, and in p'urc hasing a piece of jewelry containing a ruby. one must be certain thai the stone is nOI synthetic .

Circling St. Armand's Circle The Mister Shop hosted an Open House late Sarurday afternoon at 354 Harding Circle to announce their grand opening . Many of the Circle's merchants were on hand to wish Phil Coward well as he takes over the new store owned by Bob Eppenberger, also the owner of Pappagallo. Phil was with Reasoner's for over 7 years and is presently the VP of the St . Armand's Merchant's Association. The party featured a two spigot fountain of champagne and delicious hars d'hoe uvres that must have been hame made. Fortunately the two stores are now connected thru a recently made doorway. so the guests could browse at will in both stores ... sort of a His and Hers shopping expedition. Carman Shoes bas almost completed their renovations and the Columbia Restaurant is in the middle of their expansion out back, with Cayce acting as sidewalk-superintendant almost daily. Drop into both and ask how they're doing .

Cont"d fwm page I There was a big fashion show at the Meadows Wednesday to celebrate the opening of the Meadows Club House . Barbara Ross made many of the arrangements which included clothes from St. Armand's . The merchants involved included Taffy's, John Baldwin, Edlyn, Young ·Islanders and Cecelia Wellens. Chuck Armitage and Vern Koch of the Merchants Association were there as were Nonn Albert and Arden Smith . AI Sager, PR for the Meadows set it up, and over 75 women viewed the latest and best from St. Armands. A nice tribute to what we all knew anyway . We 're #1. •
