Ruth Hazelton flew to Baltimore, Md., on Sunday to visit her granddaughter, Melissa,, and hus-band and great-granddaughter, Taylor. Taylor is celebrating her second birthday and Ruth is de-lighted to be with her on this occasion. Maxine Cram is “baby sitting” Ruth's parakeet, Trieksy. She has music all day and even enjoys the talking.
