Ann Landers Readers Resent "Shelter" Advice Dear Readers: Recently a mother from Flint, Michigan wrote and asked me to settle a family argument. At first glance it appeared to be just another man-and»wife squabble. over a money matter. But it wasn't nearly so simple- -^ the question dealt with death or .survival. The question: Should they go ahead and .spend $800 on • recreation room or should they invest in a fallout shelter instead' I sided with the wife who felt tfiat parents have a moral obligation to pro ANN tect their children as best th«>y can against accident, sickness or death — whether ir means keeping a bottle of poison out of reach inoculating children against smallpox and polio or protecting them against the devastating effects of nuclear warfare. I also pointed out in my reply that President Kennedy has urged Americans to provide shelters as « nuclear war deterrent. The President argued that a country ill-prepared makes an inviting target for the enemy. Heated reactions to my advice have been spouting forth from every state in the union. The mail Is fascinating, and it i s enlightening. And 90 per cent of the writers are in sharp disagreement with me. Here are some samples of the most provocative letters received by this writer in the six years since she has been turning out this column. From Lima, Ohio: Your advice to the Flint family to invest in a fallout shelter was unrealistic and foolish. The only people who will benefit from shelters are the manufacturers and the salesmen. They will rake in the shekels from gullible and ignorant saps who believe what the ads say. From Chicago: I love your column but I wish you wouldn't get involved in matters of defense strategy. Chills ran up and down my spine when you advised that Michigan family to invest $800 in i fallout shelter. If your own beloved Chicago should be a target, the enemy would not aim for the Prudential Building of The Sun-Times. The Russians are to smart for that. They would at' tempt to paralyze the city industrially, 'then come in later and take over. Their best bet would be to drop the egg right in the ,middle of Lake Michigan. The | tidal wave would be about 14 feet I high. That's all, Brother. ; Los Angeles: Bless you for advocating shelters. Prudent preparation can help to diminish the feeling of panic and hopelessness. Minneapolis: The fallout shelter racket is an unconscionable scheme to part fools from their money. It is -the lousiest fraud ever perpetrated against a nation of sheep. Shame on you for falling for it. Detroit: So you hide in a hole for two weeks. Then what? You have to come up some time. What's left above the hole where you hid? Contaminated water. Contaminated cattle. Contaminated vegetation. How long could you live, anyway? Cleveland: Most fallout shelters, particularly t h e do-it-yourself types would be death traps. If President Kennedy believes we should have shelters, the government should build them and not let a lot of blood-suckers get rich. So. my dear readers, this t s what my week has been like. In tomorrow's column, I will do something I have never done before. I will tell you why I would not take mv own advice. Miscellany FANCY POULTRY — Mrs. Albert Hamm, RFD 4, prepares two young White African guineas for cooking. She has raised this breed for many years. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith) Guineas Make Good Eating Holiday Wedding ! Announcement of the approach- j ing marriage of Betty Lickteig, j daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Law- j rente Lickteig of Garnett, and j Douglas Hermreck, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lee Hermreck, Richmond, has been made. Vows will be exchanged on Thanksgiving at the St. Boniface Church, Scipio. If you like wild game but wish it had a less pronounced 'wild' flavor, then guinea is just the fowl for you. Guineas are raised in captivity and classed as fancy poultry, but they retain some wild flavor.

Plans were made for the annual Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 17. Refreshments were served by Mr. and Mrs. Henry Smart and Mrs. Fred Guyett. Hear Reports At their meeting Wednesday evening with Mrs. Lee Roberts, Franklin County Nurses heard reports on the recent state convention in Topeka. Speaking were Mrs. H. J.

Guests were Mrs. Victor Evans and Mrs. Ronald Haug. Mint Sauce To make a delicious sauce for roast lamb, combine equal parts of water and distilled white vinegar; heat. Add sugar and chopped mint leaves to taste and allow to stand about half an hour so the mint flavor will develop. apply to Mr.s. Albert Hamm, RFD; 4 She raises her own guineas and I keeps them confined in large pens during the day and in houses at night. She reports that she has had a few African white guineas even' year since she and her husband moved to the small acreage 18 years ago and has increased the number every year. She now has about 100. She buys them at the aye of four weeks, which saves feed and time. The babies are called keels, the mature birds hens and roosters. Mature birds weigh around 3 to 3'/2 pounds. "Guineas dress out more meat than other fowls of equal weight," says Mrs. Hamm. "This is because their heads and feet, and all their bones are small. They carry a rather heavy plumage on the breast which is well filled out." Mrs. Hamm says that freezing the dressed fowls has a tendency to remove some of the wild flavor. However, the white guinea which she raises has less of a wild flavor than the dark, or "pearl", guineas. She says she has found out that in large cities a guinea dinner costs about twice as much as other wild fowl such as duck or pheasant. She stresses that they should be cooked at moderate temperatures to prevent the meat from becoming dry and losing the delicate flavor. She stalls baking at a high temperature to seal in juices then reduces the heat. Mrs. Hamm says that broth from white African guineas is very mild and tasty. Since there is less heavy fat suspended in the broth, it is excellent in special diet cookery. Mrs. Hamm, a member of Fairmount HDU cooks the guineas, either young or mature, much like chicken. Below is a sample of her recipes. Guinea Fricassee Stew one guinea, remove meat from bones and shred slightly. Dice giblets and add to meat. Crumble several slices of bread and add melted butter to them if desired. Into a buttered casserole, put layers of the toast crumbs and alternate with layers of meat. Sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Add broth to casserole and bake in a moderate oven for 45 to 50 minutes. Baked Guinea Rub inside of guinea with butter, salt and pepper. Brush outside with same or with a very light cream, salt and pepper mixture. Start baking, breast down, at 450 degrees until back is well browned, turn over and brown breast side well, basting with broth in which giblets have been cooked. After fowl is browned well, decrease heat to 250 or 275 degrees and complete baking. The time will depend greatly upon maturity of fowl. The fowl may be stuffed with dressing before baking. Mrs, Hamm says that barbecued guinea is good if one likes that kind of flavor. Special Creole Guinea One young or mature guinea cut up or quartered. 2 c. milk or buttermilk 1 egg beaten 1 tbsp. flour 2 c. flour to which has been added Ic. crushed potato chips chili powder salt and pepper Beat egg, add to milk with flour, salt and pepper. Beat thoroughly. Dip pieces of guinea in the mixture and in the flour-chip mixture, place jn baking dish, pan or skillet. Brown well on both sides. Sprinkle lightly with chili powder. Pour 4 tbsp. water over the browned Guinea, cover and smother slowly at 375 or 400 de- gress for about 40 minutes or until thoroughly done. This method should form a very delicate sauce like gravy over the meat. The new electric broilers are fine for cooking the dainty whole 'fowls as each section of the fowl comes into contact with the heat and is evenly browned on the spit, according to this cook. She reports that stewed guinea may be removed from the bones and stored in containers in the freezer. It is fine for creamed dishes, sandwiches or guinea scallop with mushrooms. It is also good for canapes. By L.M.S. Now and again we get around j to opening up some of the mail which stacks up on the northwest | corner of our desk. These assort- i ed size envelopes, which must j wait our attention until all local and other strictly news material is attended to, yield some interesting things. A p r c v i e w from the current issue of Life magazine, is entitled "Evening E s t r av a n g- Estravag- West c o a s t opulence with Oriental touch. Fhe colorphoto- graphy is tops LOIS and brings out the motifs in brocades copied from priceless antique patterns. (Some of the evening wear dress styles resemble kimonos.) A letter from W. Atlee Burpee Co., Philadelphia, Pa., advises that the search for a prize $10,- j 000 white marigold is still on. So far it has eluded gardeners, but they are getting closer. (We tried some nearest • to • white marigold seeds, too. No white blooms but the pale yellows were beauties. We haven't given up hope.) The contents of the next big envelope almost caused a hassle among masculine members of the editorial department. There were four large pictures of bathing beauties in new little suits. "Melody" swimsheath was described as "light as a lilting tune" of featherlastick, nearly weightless, yet wonderfully controlling. "Sea Leaves" promised "sweet caresses for your cruves" in leaf print maillot of Vyrene. Gently rounded in front, deeply scooped in back, it weighs only ounces, yet practices the art of persuasion to perfection. The next one gives a beauty tip: The luxurious bath is a practical necessity. Use your bath or shower to soothe inner tensions, advises an expert in these matters, Miss Catherine R. Ready, director of health and beauty services for the Bristol-Myers Co. She suggests you turn your bath into a multiple beauty treatment by using a new bath oil with the name, "Softique," (This one we | liked. It included a free sample of the bath oil which is in a little foil envelope.) With time for only one more thing, we pick up a card from Mrs. 0. L. Breckenridge, RFD 1. On it she advised that the Centennial color picture with the six attractive grandchildren, which the woman from Washington, D. C., took, was probably her of her grandchildren. She read the note about it in last week's miscellany, (She came in and identified and claimed the picture and said that she would write a note to the lady who sent it.) Now is the time to call or write in to the women's page of the Herald about your Thanksgiving plans. There is always a rush at the last minute just as there is in your personal Thanksgiving preparations. We would like to hear from everyone.
