Waiting For Happy Home: Some of the 200 Project Warnhoff dolls pose before Santa takes them off to make Christmas merry for many little girls. The dolls were dressed by some of the over 400 area women who responded to the Kiwanians' appeal in The News for seamstresses. The dolls will go to their little mothers in cradles completely outfitted by the members of the King's Daughters and by Mrs. H. B. Horton of 2110 Baker Rd. in Dexter, who alone made 60 complete sets of doll-sized bedding. Club president Duane Butler (left) with a wagon load of miniature building materials, admires a doll, slumbering as Paul Roeder holds her, but ready to wake up under the Christmas tree for the right little girl.
