[[?ng]] New for Debutante [[?]] --- Auxiliary Committee

home of the debutante's paternal grandparents, the late W. H. Crockers, will be the setting for the debut, as it has been for a couple of generations of Crocker debs.

for the convenience of guests, and to relieve the parking problem at the charming mansion, transportation will be arranged from the near-by Burlingame Country Club, beginning at 10 o'clock, when the ball is slated to start.  Dr. and Mrs. Crocker have come up from their place at Pebble Beach and are in residence at New Place now.

Before this event, too, a great many dinner parties will be given, and the debutante herself will dine ahead of time with her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. William W. Crocker at Sky Farm.

In honor of Count Cecil Pecci-Blunt of Italy, presently in Santa Barbara, is the dinner at which Mr. and Mrs. George T. Cameron will be hosts.  The count will come north to spend Christmas with the Edmunds Lymans, as he did last year.

The Burlingame Country Club will be the locale for the dinners being planned by the Daniel G. Volkmanns, as well as the Paige Monteagles and the George W. Nickels.  Similar affairs have been arranged by the Kenneth Monteagles, by Mr. and Mrs. John L. Bradley at their Carolands abode, and by Mr. and Mrs. Christian de Guigne III at their home in Burlingame.  Mrs. Dorothy Earl is coming down from Squaw Valley to be the house guest of Mr. and Mrs. Francis A. Martin Jr. for the week end, and, of course, will be among their dinner guests that night.

The parade of holiday events continues, apparently unending.

Anne and Virginia Giannini, daughters of the L. M. Gianninis, will entertain 14 guests each (and at separate tables) next Monday for lunch at the Hotel St. Francis.  Virginia, a deb of the past winter, is due home from her studies at Hollins College in Virginia.

Convivial gatherings have been planned by the Philip Daltons at their Clay street menage for tomorrow night, and by the Forbes Wilsons for December 27, when they will make up a batch of eggnogs for their chums.  Also over eggnogs, a group will gather December 30 at the Kentfield home of Mr. and Mrs. Scott Cauchois.  The Richard Hermans are holding [[?]]

Christmas south of the border is on the agenda for Mr. and Mrs. Edison A. Holt of the Monterey peninsula, who, with their daughter Ann, left last week for Mexico, planning to be there a month.  Their older daughter, Elsie, who's a student at the Madeira School in Virginia, will join them in Cuernevaca for the holidays.  The Holts' son, Ted, also plans to join them for Yuletide if Army leave permits.

Due back in San Francisco Wednesday to join their parents, the Edmund Andersons, are their daughter, Jane, a student at Chatham Hall in Virginia, and their son, Forrest Anderson, a third-year student at Dartmouth.  Sister and brother will arrive on the same plane.

Mr. and Mrs. John Gallois left Friday evening for Palm Springs, where they plan to be for most of the winter, as is their annual custom.  The Bernard Fords, however, have rented their house in the same area, and Mrs. Ford went down Friday to make the necessary arrangements.

Florida – specifically Delray Beach – will be the holiday winter playground for Mr. and Mrs. John Boit Morse and their children.  The couple left their Pebble Beach home last week, heading first for Lake Forrest, Ill., where they will spend a short time with Mrs. Morse's mother, Mrs. Donald R. McLennan, before going on to New York.  They'll also enjoy a few days with Mr. and Mrs. Artemus Gates at their residence in Locust Valley, Long Island.

In Manhattan, the Morses will be joined by their sons, Peter and Richard, who attend St. Paul's School in Vermont.  Then the quartet will head for Florida.

"Cindy" (Madison) and Bud Sampson have a change of address coming up next month.  Bud is being called to active service in the Army and will be stationed at Camp Roberts, so the pair will be making their home in near-by Paso Robles for the time being.

Here from their homes in France are Mrs. Charles Raoul-Duval and her daughter, Mrs. Jean Coutuie (Elisabeth Raoul-Duval), who'll be with family members for the holidays.  The former is presently visiting her sister, Mrs. Tobin Clark, in San Mateo, and Mrs. Couturie is the [[?]]

Nancy Fish Is Married In Berkeley

All Souls' Episcopal Church in Berkeley was the setting Saturday at 8 p.m. for the wedding of Nancy Fish and Peter A. Parmelee.  Immediately afterwards, guests went on to the Berkeley home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs George A. Fish, for the reception.

The Rev. Albert H. Olson officiated at the nuptials.  White flowers decorated the altar and there were smaller clusters marking the pews.

Nancy was given in marriage by her father, and wore a wedding dress made with Chantilly lace bodice and a net skirt over satin.  With this she wore a lace cap and a fingertip-length veil.  Orchids were in the center of her bouquet, which also was composed of valley lilies and stephanotis.

Mrs. Neil L. Hospers was matron of honor for her cousin.  Also preceding the bride down the aisle were Marilyn McCreary, Mary Louise Henkle, Mrs. James W. Shock and the bridegroom's sister, Mrs. Arthur Munzig Jr.

Their dresses were ballerina-length models of a silver and green brocaded fabric accented by a green velvet trim.

David Parmelee was best man.  Ushers were Nancy's brother, George Fish Jr., Lorren Hibler, John Colyer and Arthur W. Munzig Jr.

The bride's mother wore a ballerina-length dress of gray taffeta and a cloche with beaded trim.  The bridegroom's mother, Mrs. C. Allyn Parmelee of Tacoma, Wash., was in a honey beige gown.  Both had corsages of orchids.

The bridegroom is in business in Los Angeles, and the couple will live in Westwood.

The bride is the granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Fish of Berkeley, and of Mrs. E. L. McNeill of Oakland and the late Mr. McNeill.  She was graduated from the University of Oregon at Eugene, where she was a member of Alpha Phi sorority.

Peter, son of the C. Allyn Parmelees, received his degree from UCLA.  His fraternity is Phi Delta Theta.

The bride-elect is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Burton C. Rawlins of San Marino.  She was presented at the Las Madrinas debutante ball in the South a couple of years ago.

Her fiance, son of Mr. and Mrs. Homer D. Teafatiller of Tacoma, Wash., will be graduated from Stanford this month.  Before going home for Christmas, he will visit Cynthia's parents.
