Wednesday, October 9, 19?4 HOPE tARtu stAU Give bully an out-of- school lesson By Abigail Van Buren • 1974 by Th« Chicago Tribune DEAR ABBY: If someone tries to pick a fight with you at school and you have done everything you can to avoid a fight, but that person starts pushing you around, and you have to use force to defend yourself, do you think it's fair that the person who was trying to defend himself should get punished just the same as the troublemaker? What is a person supposed to do when he is picked on by someone who is trying to get him into a fight? I am not going to just stand there and let him push me around. Fighting is against the rules on our schoolgrounds. UNFAIRLY PUNISHED DEAR UN: When someone tries to provoke a fight by pushing you around, instead of ^pushing HIM around, report him to the authorities. This may sound like the chicken's way out, but it's the only way to protect yourself from the punishment of breaking the "no fighting" rules at your school. (P.S. You might consider taking some lessons in self defense, and give that bully a surprise lesson in case he ever tries to push you around OFF the schoolgrounds.) _ DEAR ABBY: I read about that mother who never wanted children but she accidentally had two anyway. She said not all women were cut out to be mothers, and she was one of them. She may be interested in my story: My husband and I always wanted a large family. Ten months after we were married I gave birth to a healthy baby boy. We couldn't wait to have more. Twelve miscarriages later, I had another son. He' was born dead. A year later, I gave birth to another son. Eighteen months later, a third son was born, but we soon discovered that our second and third sons were both severely deaf. They needed special education. After thousands of dollars worth of tutoring and much hard work, our two deaf sons are now able to talk nearly as well as our normal son. I wanted children desperately, and their being handicapped doesn't make us love them any less. Some handicaps can be overcome. I hope that mother realizes that in her refusal to love her children she is handicapped. And I hope she overcomes her handicap before it handicaps her unloved children. LUCKY IN ILLINOIS DEAR LUCKY. Your children are lucky, too. God bless you. DEAR. ABBY: Three cheers for the young .mother who had the courage to admit'that she'felt "stuck" with her two kids who were both accidents. I have one child, but she wasn't an accident. I really wanted a child, but I soon realized that I wasn't cut out to be a mother. I have never abused my child, but I am positive that I do not want another one. Now if my in-laws and friends would just leave me alone, and quit telling me how "wrong" it is to raise only one child, I would appreciate it. And if this letter is printed, I hope my husband s family in New Jersey reads it and sees the light. Thank you. y ONE IS BEAUTIFUL IN N.Y. DEAR ONE: Leave nothing so important to chance. Clip this column and mail it to them. CONFIDENTIAL TO J. IN MINNEAPOLIS: Tell your husband that you'll lose ten pounds if he'll lose 20. I can't think of a better way to have a closer relationship. Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclo** stamped, self-addressed envelope, please. Hate to write letters? Send $1 to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Beverly Hills, Calif. 90212, for Abby's booklet, "How to Write Letters for All Occasions." Cuban Chicken By Gaynor Maddox As a rule, women who enter chickemcooking contests are of the family type, churchgoers, PT A parents. Of else they are home economics students. Their interests are more along lines of "practicality than of style. • But here is a switch. The winner of the position Of New York State representative at the National Chicken Cooking Contest recently held in Winston-Salem, N.C., was Cubati'born Maria Zobel. She is a fashion model for Molly Parnis. She is tall, wlllowly, divorced and remarried. There was a representative in the contest from each state plus one from the District of Columbia. Each Was selected in a preliminary contest and received $100 and the all-ex: penses-paid trip to North Carolina. „»• Cuban Chicken wasrMfs. Zobel's entry in the 25thNCC contest. It cantaihrnaoth garlic and wf$e. She explained that ifwas derived from a recipe of an aunt, a remarkably gifted cook who became a local Cuban legend. In her deliberately artistic East Side New York apartment, Maria Zobel, flanked by her .two black Burmese cats, said she hopes her children one day willlalk about her cooking the way- her aunt's children and relatives talk about her fabulous croquettes...,,.;,v 1 / '!,' ;\T' Her Cuban Chicken calls for a whole broiler-fryer chicken rubbed inside and out with a mixture of monosodium glutamate, salt and pepper. Then it is marinated for three hours in lime juice, oregano and chopped garlic. Next, it is browned on all sides in corn oil in a Dutch oven. A half glass of white wine and a chopped onion are added and it is then cooked slowly for 40 minutes. Sauce is served separately. History, Recipes Are a Good Mix - ' - / TO ' , -r y • I - , PIE—As it's sometimes PLANTATION PEC Steam a bone-in cut of cod and serve it with tomato sauce for a pleasant supper main dish. By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Fpod<Editor When the women who belong to the Junior League of New Orleans decided on a new fundraising effort to aid them in supporting some community betterment projects, they chose to assemble a nookbook — one that would appeal to travelers and history buffs as well as cooks. The result was "The Plantation Cookbook" (Doubleday), published a few years ago and still going strong. The first half of The Plantation Cookbook consists of profiles of 22 plantation homes, built prior to 1860 and now open to the public, that represent five basic areas of Louisiana. There's also a "tour" of seven pre-Civil War houses in New Orleans plus a brief history of that city in its early years. League members involved in preparing the historical portion of the book visited the plantations and explored New Orleans, doing a thorough job of research. Charming line draw* ings are used to help a real or ^armchair traveler recall or en-. I visage the scenes. '•Other league members , w6rked, at gathering recipes that preserve Louisiana's cu-• Unary achievements and they 1 tried them on their families and guests.. Because each recipe serves^ eight, there were lots of dinner parties during this preparation period and frank comments on the worth of each recipe were invited; only those that tasters were enthusiastic about were chosen for inclusion in the book. For the most part, the recipes rely . ' on foods available in Louisiana in antebellum days. We were attracted to The Plantation Cookbook's Pecan Pie because it is less sweet than most recipes for this very American dessert, and because it suggests an interesting chocolate embellishment. Here's our adaptation of the recipe. made in Louisiana. PLANTATION PECAN PIE 2 eggs Ms cup sugar V4 cup dark corn syrup 2 tablespoons butter, soft 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans Unbaked 8-inch pie shell Vfe cup (about 28) pecan halves Garnish of 1 cup heavy cream (whipped) or 1 ounce semi-sweet chocolate (melted), if desired Beat eggs slightly; add sugar, corn syrup, butter and vanilla a.id beat gently until combined; stir in chopped pecans. Turn into pie shell. Place 4 pecans in the center, petal fashion; place remaining pecan halves around edge. Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven until set — 30 to 35 minutes. If garnish is used, serve pie hot or cold with the whipped cream or drizzle chocolate ' over the cooled pie in a zigzag design between center pecans and those around edge and let chocolate set. Coming and going Mrs - Harris s P eaks to L y dia class Mr. and Mrs. Andy Burton Taylor and.Mr. and Mrs. • i Doyle Bruce -of -California; are visiting relatives^ here. Mrs; Taylor ah'd'Mr's.Bruce may be remembered as the twin daughters, Adell and Estelle, of the late Mr. and Mrs. Alex Purtell.

One weighed 118 pounds and one, 112. Mrs. Robert Singleton, the former Mary Ann Lile, and her daughter Julia have returned to their home in Fort Worth after a visit with Mrs. L.M. Lile.

POLLY'S POINTERS COOKING Bride confused by pots, pans By Polly Cramer : Polly's Problem DEAR POLLY - I am a bride trying to decide on the best type of cookware to buy. Many people say stainless steel "is best. I want to know what others think after using the various types. I have one kettle that is coated cast iron on the inside and enamel on the outside and another older cast iron kettle that has a tendency to rust I feel food cooked in it tastes rusty. Does the coating put on pans to keep food from sticking have any effect on food? Also how do I keep the cast iron from rusting? - SALLY. DEAR POLLY — When any member of my family buys a new garment or new pair of shoes I immediately mark the size in the item with a marking pen. When they are passed on to someone else, given to a clothing drive or whatever the next person can ascertain the size immediately. The back of the neck is usually the best place in a garment for this. - K.G.B. •NKttsi'Ai'th K.vm;riust: ASSN. SPONGE CAKE This high and handsome cake comes from a fine cookbook, "Gourmets and Groundhogs" by Elaine Light. 8 egg whites 3 4 teaspoon cream of tartar 1 1 2 cups sugar 6 egg yolks 1 cup unsifted flour 2 tablespoons water 2 teaspoons vanilla Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until they stand up in soft peaks. Beat in, a tablespoon at a time, 1 cup of the sugar. Set aside. Beat egg yolks with remaining '2 cup sugar until thick and lemon-colored. Stir in flour, alternately with water and vanilla. Pour over the beaten whites and fold together with a spoon or rubber spatula. Bake in an ungreased 10-inch tube pan at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Invert until cool. Loosen with a spatula and ease cake out of pan. String art is a new way to use ordinary string and cord. It isn't difficult, and the effect can be spectacular. Use imagination to come up with interesting designs or find inspiration for simple outline designs in a coloring book. Supplies: String and cord of various sizes and weights, liquid or powder Rit dye, white glue, masonite or heavy cardboard, pastel colored felt or fabric. General directions: Decide on a variety of related and contrasting colors and prepare dye solutions for coloring lengths of string. For each color, add 4 teaspoons liquid dye or Vt teaspoon powder dye to one quart hot tap water. Stir short lengths of white cord or string in dye solution for 8 to 10 minutes (heavy or tightly twisted cord and dark colors may require extra time). Rinse thoroughly in cold water and dry looped over a hanger or on paper towels. Note: To keep long pieces of string from tangling and dyeing unevenly, make a skein as for yarn about 18 inches long. Insert wooden rods or sticks at ends and rotate up and down in dye solution. Cover board wilh felt or fabric. Lightly draw design outline onto fabric with a pencil. Following design outline and working on one small area at a time, apply small amounts of glue to fabric and work the string into a simple line, circle or zigzag pattern. Knots or raveled out string can be used for special effects. Press string lightly into place and allow to set. Continue applying glue and siring until entire design is filled in. To complete wall hanging, make a border with several rows of dyed string and add a picture hanger to the bm;k. When dry, spray with protective plastic or acrylic coating, if desired. SOLAR ENERGY FOR ALL On sunny winter days, open draperies and blinds to let the sun's heat in. Keep them closed on cloudy days and at night so they they'll act as extra storm sash.
