Serve over a cold salmon or striped bass, or other firm fish. The Wine and Food Society's Justly famed series of cookbooks has just been embellished by a volume called succinctly "Eggs," and another called "Bakery." "Eggs" Is W.95; "Bakery" is $10. Both are distributed here by World Publishing but printed In London. Both are quite beautiful. The egg author. Margaret Sherman, goes from the ridiculous to the sublime from her chapter on boiled eggs, for people who can't boil an egg, to a chapter on souffles and mousses, and the theory of Just as Cognac can come only from Cognac, so the 29 million pounds of Roquefort, made every year, can be genuine only when It sports the famous "red sheep" on Its foil. Because Roquefort is Roquefort, it is protected in every country where it is sold (which Is about every country in the world) and a special corps ol snoopers watch to see that no Blue or (iorgonzola (which resemble Roquefort) are substituted for the real thing. They have a special chemical test that separates the sheep from the goats or, in this case, from the cows! If by chance or by design, a crumb Is found in a Roquefort dressing, or on a Roquefort cheese plate, run for the exits, men! But, just so you don't think the Roquefort folks are just negative, they also run around the countryside giving out Roquefort awards handsome wall plaques to reward the restaurants who serve and use Roquefort with the proper respect. I was there that glorious day when Savarin's Inn of the Clock, over in the United Nations Plaza, was awarded the honor by the head Roquefort man in the United States, ably abetted by the Commercial Consul of France. Then I had lunch Roquefort for dessert!

Then come Scones, Cakes, Pastries. Petits Fours, Confectionery even "how to Ice a wedding cake." The color shots are exquisite and the wood cuts and drawings, in black and white, to illustrate or instruct, do just that. Time-Life, look to your laurels. These Wine and Food Society books are superb examples of book making (which you understand at once when you read that George Rainbird of London designs and produces them). ALN 532 A REGAL TRAY - Fit for a king is this platter, featuring genuine, cu-red-by-winds Roquefort cheese. in four Maine?" t BEAUTY st Import By ROBERT J. MISCH NEW YORK (WNS) Are you, perhaps, looking for trouble? Well, you could manufacture a few home made $5 bills, or. pilfer from the A & P, or take your neighbor's car for the week end, or burn a draft card you'll have trouble, right enough, but nothing like palming off Blue Cheese as Roquefort! The Roquefort people are quite willing to admit that they're trouble-makers. But who can blame them? After all Roquefort Is unique. Genuine Roquefort cheese comes only from Roquefort, a little village in the south of France. It is made only from ewe's milk, from a special breed of sheep, the Lacaune, that like living down there; and it is cured in the windswept caves that undermine the place. "Bhafii Today's column discusses the fifth most common name in the United States. The fact that it ranks fifth and not first or second will probably come as a surprise to many persons. The name Is Jones and it is a patronymic surname which means "son or dependent of John". In England, the name can be traced back at least as far as 1276 when a Willclmus filius Gene (William son of John) is recorded In the Hundred Rolls of Edward I. The name was derived from the popular personal name John and took several variations including Johns, Fitz-john, and Johnson, as well as Jones. One reason for the evolution of so many different forms for this name was the popularity of the personal name John, which by the 14th century had rivalled the name William. In Wales the Jones form became especially popular since it was closely related to the SALE JOYCE RED CROSS SOCIALITES COBBIES COBBLERS MATCHING HANDBAGS HALF PRICE ALL HEEL HEIGHTS COLORS AND STYLES TO SELECT FROM pendence knows of the adventures of John Paul Jones, although many may not know that his original name was John Paul and that he added the surname Jones after settling in Fredericksburg, Virginia in 1773. The world of sports lists among its most Illustrious members, Robert Tyre "Bobby" Jones, the great golfer. Partly because of the popularity of the surname, but also because of the many contributions of persons named Jones, there a number of coats of arms on record for this name.

On her 21st wedding anniversary, she took that number plus the ages of her oldest and youngest children and bet them on the "tierce," the French version of the daily double. The numbered horses came in in proper order, and Mme. Laffont now has $7,000 as first payment on a new house to replace her three-room apartment.

Brigltte presented her 100 lines of homework later the same day, but the police chief discovered that she had used carbon paper to make several copies at the same time.

The records abound with persons of this surname and in 1279 we find a record of a Matilda Jones in the Hundred Rolls of Buckinghamshire. History hooks record many exploits for persons bearing this surname. In America every student of the War of Inde I was reminded of this by a neighbor. She was telling about her upcoming retirement from her secretarial job with a large corporation. "My company just gave me the figures, although It's almost two years off. I know what I'll get from Social Security (and that may change for the better). I know what my pension will be. Barring unexpected demands on personal savings and other holdings. I know approximately what these will add. It all amounts to enough to live on comfortably. "Yet, I can't imagine not working at all. Every woman in my office who has reached retirement age in reasonable health has gone on to other work of some kind. They don't want as much responsibility as they've had. They don't want to feel the same push and hurry. But many are widows or single women who arc used to a routine, out among people. They would miss all that. And a weekly paycheck, no matter how diminished, still helps the ego. "There must be satisfactions in continuing to work, or many who don't actually need money would stop short." A 65-year-old reader wrote: "I could have continued my teaching Job in a private art school for several more years. But I had to give It up when my husband retired and we moved to another state. I was still poing strong and my students were as enthusiastic as any I ever had. And the school had wanted me to stay. Of course, I went with my husband. "However, I couldn't imagine a life where I no longer had contact with ambitious young people. I couldn't stop dead In my tracks after years of usefulness. No school in the new area would consider me at my age. "So just for fun I invited some children in the neighborhood to come in once a week. Suddenly I had an informal class, and was enjoying it. Then a local art school heard about me and offered a part-time teaching job, which was like an endorsement of my work all over again.
