Once a Profession, Cooking Now Hobby ByMaryLeeHagert Cooking has been Mrs. Augusta Bartosh's livelihood for many years. She is well known in the area for her culinary talents, having owned and operated the former "Gussie's Restaurant." "Most everyone knows me by my nickname, Gussie," she said. "They don't even know my last name!" She began the restaurant "from scratch" in 1964. It closed in July, 1972 because of the downtown urban renewal program. The Carroll Theater is located at the site of the former restaurant. She did "some talking" to try to save the restaurant building. But it was inevitable, the building just had to go, she said sadly. Many people miss Gussie's place. She also misses the constant stream of activity in the restaurant. She owned a restaurant in Webster City before moving to Carroll with her late husband in 1956. She ran the Corner Cafe here before opening Gussie's Restaurant. "I know most of the people in town," she said. "In an eating place you get to know the real facts about people," she said with a twinkle in her eye. Instead of serving hundreds of people a week, she now usually cooks for herself and her sister, Goldie. Cooking is now just her main hobby, Gussie said. Her apartment, above the Carroll Medical Center, is too small to entertain large groups, she said. Instead of cooking on a large restaurant grill, Gussie now uses an electric skillet when just cooking for herself, she said. She feels pa,rt of her culinary success may be due to her early training, she said. "My mother was a real good cook. She and my grandmother spent a lot of time teaching us children how to cook," she said. She is now so adept at cooking she does not heed to measure the ingredients exactly. "After baking so long, you get so you can just take scoops of the ingredients and know it is the right amount,"she said. "When I first try a recipe, I always measure," she said. Because homemakers do less baking today its harder for young girls to do baking and not measure everything, she said. Although she does not use a lot of prepared box mixes, "I don't object to using mixes," she said. "A lot of time and money is spent in perfecting the mixes by the manufacturing companies." Gussie said, "I'm just loaded with cookbooks. Every Timei Herald, Carroll, la.

She has some cookbooks that have been handed down to her from her mother, which she frequently uses.' The secret of fine cooking is "flavoring the dishes with wine and beer," she said. She adds wine to many of her foods, including cakes and especially meat dishes. The food has a different taste when wine or beer is added, shetsaid. "It takes away the flat taste," she added. She does not limit herself to just cooking American foods. "I love to cook everything, from Bohemiam to German foods, all kinds," she laughed. Cooking is not her only activity. She is serving her second year as president of Wa-tan-ye club, a professional and business womens' service organization. Gussie has so many "good" recipes she had a hard time choosing which one to publish. Here are some of her "best Counter Talk By Jewel Tooley Green, green, green! Sure, and St. Patrick's Day is almost upon us! If you're not Irish, it's hard to tune out those who are, so why not join them, just for the day, by cooking something Irish? The beginning of Irish cooking was over turf fire, a slow burning fuel like peat, good for stewing and foods requiring steady heat. Irish cooking is noted for being simple and wholesome, and recipes have been handed down through many generations.

Since rural economy was based mainly on the land in early . days, it was important that holdings should be safeguarded and improved.- if possible by a suitable marriage arrangement when control passed to the younger generation. An accessory to matchmaking. particularly in Ulster, was the cooking of a matchmaking cake, or Caca Cleamhnais. It would be baked by the girl's mother on the morning of the day on which final arrangements were to be made, and passed around to those assembled as soon as agreement had been reached regarding dowry and date.

YOUR BIRTHDAY March 16,1976 It's very likely you'll be far more enterprising this coming year than you've ever been. An auxiliary venture could provide you a source of additional income. recorded in each of the two previous years. The average age of the workers that died last year was 40; the youngest lowan killed on the job was 15, the oldest 76. Nearly $23 million in projected earnings will be lost because of the death of the 109 workers, according to Stale Labor Commissioner Jerry Addy. Tihis is a conservative estimate, said Addy; and is based solely on the employes' earnings at the time of death and normal retirement. Only those fatalities that occur in the face of existing occupational safety and health standards and under circumstances that are susceptible to inspection are considered controllable, Addy explained. Of the 109 deaths, 66 were placed in the "controllable" category, 19 fewer than the 85 recorded in 1974. "This represents a significant decline of 22 per cent," Addy stressed. Falls, being struck by an object and crushing injuries caused more than half of the so-called controllable deaths. In the non-controllable category, nearly all of the 43 employe fatalities were caused by vehicle accidents or heart attacks suffered while on the job.

From the very beginning, what really made Redken products so outstanding in a sea of virtually thousands of other beauty products, was the advanced research and technology that led to their formulations. The hair, skiri and scalp are naturally, mildly acidic. This is measured in the laboratory by "pH." Scientists use the convenient pH scale of 0-14 to determine acidity or alkalinity, 0 being extreme acidity and 14 being extreme alkalinity. The hair and skin's natural pH registers from 4.5 to 5.5. Ordinary complexion soaps, including those with cold creme, often register an alkaline pH of 8.2 to 10. So, too, do many lotions, beauty cremes and hair preparations. All of these alkaline products are incompatible with Nature's normal acidic state. The vast amount of original hair and skin research done by Redken Laboratories has resulted in the Scientific Approach to Beauty. So influential has been the Scientific Approach upon the world of beauty, that today the Redken name stands as a hallmark of product superiority and technological advancement. Many women throughout the country are already devoted to Redken's line of acid balanced, organic protein products. This complete line includes shampoos, conditioners, hairsprays, setting lotions and cremes. As well as skin moisturizers, night cremes and a non-soap cleansing agent. All formulated for the health and beauty of your hair and skin. The "pH plus" Skin Treatment Collection is the most recent example of Redken's endeavor to create superior beauty products through scientific research. The "pH" represents the acid balanced nature of the products to protect and sustain the skin's delicate acid mantle. The "plus" is the ingredients formulated into the products: coHagen protein derivatives, moisturizers, emollients, vitamins and herbs. It is Redken's belief that to receive the most benefit from the products you use on your hair and skin, they should be distributed in a total atmosphere of beauty. By professional cosmetologists — those people specifically trained and educated in the art and science of beauty. Redken products are primarily formulated for use by the professional only. However, many of the products are available to you in retail packages from your favorite salon. In this way, you are insured continuous beauty benefits between salon visits. It is ! imperative that before you purchase any of Redken's : products formulated for salon retail, you first consult ! your cosmetologist as to the correct products and direction for use- so as to meet your specific beauty I requirements. For 'without a professional hair and skin : analysis prior to retail product selection, best ! results cannot be guaranteed or expected.
