MEN ARE BETTER COOKS than women. If you don't believe it, just ask any man. He'll assure you, in dead earnest, that the little woman may do all right on common everyday dishes, but when it comes to gourmet food papa is the boy to give it that epicurean touch. Then he'll tell you his own secret for a perfect steak, or crepes suzettes, or perhaps just hamburgers fit for a king. Don't try to stop him at this point — it can't be done. And don't ask him how he makes biscuits, or how to boll an egg. Those are the common everyday things that pop doesn't bother with. This is the season when the master of the house gets out his chef's cap and asbestos gloves and tunes up the backyard barbecue grill. The preparations are elaborate, and the equipment impressive. « • « * FIRST. HE MUST HAVE a supply of gleaming, razor-sharp carving knives — not just one, mind .you, but a full set. Then he must have a steak board, exactly the right size and grain and scrubbed to pristine whiteness. Next there must be a couple of long-handled forks, a folding wire sandwich grill, an outside spatula for turning things, some gleaming spears ro shish-kebabs, and a full assortment of all known seasonings and spices. Pop is likely to shop happily for a week or two before he gets his tools assembled, adjusts his chef's cap, lights the charcoal in the grate and goes into hijs act. For proper execution of his steak ritual, pop needs at least two assistants. » * * * ONE ASSISTANT HOLDS THE TOOLS in readiness, the other stands by in case of emergency. Bowls of melted butter, chopped Bread and other bakery products consume 12,5000,000,000 pounds of flour annually. TIME TO BUY LIQUOR IS NOW from the only Liquor Store in Mt.

The wedding Saturday climaxed a mixup of five years standing over names. In 1946, letters from John Mc­ lntyre (48 Highland street) Pawtucket, R. I., kept going to his namesake,' a BaltimOTe resident stationed at Fort Brkgg, N. C. So the Baltimore John soon discovered that these Rhode Island letters signed "Dad" were meant for the Rhode Island Mclntyre's son of the same name, also stationed at Fort Bragg. The Pawtucket Mclntyre eventually became interested In the Baltimore Mclntyre's sister—and the wedding resulted. / , chives, mushrooms and such must be prepared in advance, and a rack of condiments placed close at hand. Meanwhile pop stands with fork in hand, wielding it like a baton, until the exact degree of donenesa is reached, when the steak is lifted to the carving board with a flourish. Comes the ritual of carving. * • * * IF POP IS A TRUE GOURMET he'll mix the ..aiad himself, tossing in garlic, oil and vinegar with an artist's gestures, while his assistants stand ready with the makings. After it's all' over, and each guest has reiterated — "Best Steak I ever ate" — Pop retires for his nap and mom spends the rest of the afternoon washing the dishes and polishing the tools for the neit bout. Mom. if she 's an experienced wife will agree with the consensus: "Of course, men are the best cooks!"
