Mrs. Norbert V. Schwartz, Jim Thorpe, experienced quite a thrill while vacationing with her family in the Adirondacks in New York. While in The Lavender Shop at Lake Placid, she met Kate Smith, nationally-famous vocalist of "When the Moon Comes Over the Mountain" fame. The proprietress, who is hospitalized, is a close friend of Kate, so the singer and a number of friends have been taking turns staffing the store in her absence. Kate owns a cottage at Lake Placid. She leaves each customer she serves with the greeting, "God bless you."
