PAGE FOUR Monroe Monitor. Local Daughter Visits, Reports On Turkish Lite Reports indicate a gala day at the Wallace Grweli home, 346 S. Blakely St., last Sunday, August 5, when their daughter, Baubara, and her hushand, Ronald Pum- phry, and their two children, Debbie and Ronald Junior, re- ceived family and friends at a family reunion picnic. The Pumphrys are in Monroe for a visit with her parents. Aft- er another week of vacation they expect to ,leave for Wichita, Kan- sas, where he will be stationed for 18 months with the Armed Forces. Three-year-old Debbie was born in Degemender, Turkey, where Ronald was staff sergeant in the U. S. Air Force. The whole family talk Turkish fluently since they lived among the natives and heard very little English. Debbie was the first white baby ,born in that commu- nity. Barbara eared for her ac- cording to American standards. The Turkish mother binds her baby from head to foot for the first six months. This is done to straighten the legs and arms and consequently the ,baby cries all the time, Barbara said. The Pumphry's Turkish friends and neighbors were much wor- ried about the American method. Barbara said they called regu- larly to see if the baby was pro- gressing satisfactorily. Turkish parents never punish their chil- dren and one time when Barbara spanked Ronnie Jr. the Turkish people didn't speak to her for five days, she reports. The Pumphrys lived in a Tur- kish home on the bay of Ismit on the sea of Mara Nora. Flies and fruit were abundant, and since the .flies are sacred in Turkey and never destroyed, the Pum- phrys took care Of that problem behind closed doors of their home. Barbara translated letters for ex-army and ngvy people. One time in the town square she was surrounded by 40 hill people who were listening intently. Another time in the town square she was surrounded by 40 'hill people who were listening intently. Another time she came across the word airplane and couldn't think of the word in Turkish, so she motioned skyward with her hands and everyone nodded their approval. Barbara says she had always dreamed of beiwg a gypsy prin- cess 'but after seeing them in person she changed her mind. She realized their personal hab- its are different from ours, she said.
