P«g» B-6--INDEPENDENT I HI imt. CII4. MM. AwM t IM1 Faced With Death, H e r L i f e B e g i n s By 1SABELI.E McCAIG GOSHEN. Vt. (UPI-- Four years ago Elsie Mastcrton thought her life had ended. She discovered a lump on her breast. Today, fully recovered "from major surgery for a · malignant cancer, she says the past four years have been the most productive, and perhaps the happiest, of her life. Mrs. Mastcrton, 46, is the mother of three daughters, co-properietor of Blueberry Hill Farm, a ski resort turned summer inn, and a successful author. "When a woman is faced with cancer, she figures her life is over, that she will look and feel terrible," she said in an interview. But being aware of death has made her aware of life. . . . "Of all the things you take for granted. Life becomes more precious." A FORMER* New York secretary who just 11 years ago thought lamb chops and frorcn peas were a culinary production, she opens the third season of her unique cooking sclwxil in the Vermont Hills in May. Meanwhile she's writing a second cookbook. It will be the fourth book for the author-innkeeper, who moved here when her husband. John, gave up practicing law in New York to start a ski resort at Blueberry Hill. The venture failed in the snowlcss winters of 101!) and 1950 and they decided to open their rustic, old farmhouse t o s u m m e r guests. The day Mrs. Mas- tcrson gave birth to their oldest child. Luanda, now 11, Blueberry Hill 1'arm also born. An advertisement boasting of Lucullan fowl and "nothing whatever to do" btought results. WHEN they 'couldn't find a cook, Mrs. Mastcrton took over the kitchen. With the challenge to produce the - sumptuous meals her husband advertised, she soon h^j^in to make the boast a reality. Her secret, she says, is that she still rooks "scared". "It took me five years to learn to cook without a qualm," she admits. But she still worries about every meal "like a mother over a child/In her first book "Noth- ing Whatever To Do," she confides, "I approach each meal with the fear and trepidation of the young bride who is expecting her husband's boss to dinner. I never know for sure that I won't bum the stew." Her cooking school students move right .into the farmhouse for their weekly sessions when Mrs. Mastcr- ton imparts common sense cooking. She warns of the pitfalls she fell into and dispenses imaginative hints such as adding sugar to almost everything, including beef stropanoff, to make it interesting. * * · · AMONG the gourmet de- lights that have made Blueberry Hill famous arc her succulent hot biscuits which she cuts out with a whiskey glass so they will be bite size. A cucumber soup she invented is another. Its elusive flavor is the result of chicken stock made with cucumbers, onions, milk, pepper,' garlic and cinnamon sticks. Blueberries, which grow in abundance on the mountain behind the farmhouse, turn up in preserves, pancakes and sauces. Mrs. Mastcrton's full life has followed her brush with disfiguring cancer and the determination to make the most of every day. Let's Explore Your Mind ·TOED pea CHURCH-GOING 2ING A HIS3AK? AW Wi?£ CIC5-Z IDC-TUSH? V3Q By SYLVANUS AND F.VELYV DUVAI.I. 1. Some people arc born selfish. False, c.xccpt that in one sense, everyone is born selfish. We have to learn to become considerate of others. As we grow up, we find that certain kinds of behavior get us what we want. If, as small children, we find that crying, wheedling and temper tantrums are successful, \vc tend to depend upon these to get what we want all our lives. If We were brought up by parents who did not let us get away with such behavior, we learned to get what we want in different ways. In any case, selfish or unselfish, we are what we arc because of what we h.ivc learned, not because of the way we were born. · · » ·* 2. Does church-going bring a husband and wife closer together?

Many churches have a number of activities and groups to which the people can belong as couples-which help bind them together. One important reason for marrying a person who belongs to the same church is that such activities bring you together, rather than pull you apart. This is just one of the factors which result in happy marriages, McGowan-Stuht Betrothal Told Mr. and Mrs. T. Albert McGowan, Lakcwood, announce the engagement of their daughter, Patricia Ann, to William Russell Stuht, son of William N. Stuht, l.akcwood, and the late Mrs. Stuht. A senior at Mayfair High School. Lakcwood, Miss McGowan is a member of the National Honor Society and Mayfair Honor Roll. Her prospective bridegroom also attended Mayfair.

Alicia Hart Disguise Figure Faults It's a lucky gal who doesn't have a figure problem. The plump gal can slim down with proper diet and exercise, and the too-slim gal can build up some weight. But there are tricks that will create the illusion that you've solved your problem even while you're working on it. If you're too heavy all over, w e a r unobtrusive shades such as navy, black, gray, and beige. Slick to lightweight fabrics t h a t have no sheen. The neckline of your dresses should rw V-shaped or oval, and your suits should have narrow lapels. ' * * * * IF YOUR excess weight is all on top, wear dark tons with lighter skirts and flared skirts in bulky fabrics. The hippy woman can reverse the process, wearing light tops and darker skirls that have only a slight fullness. To draw the eye away from the hips, she should wear p o r t r a i t necklines often, and bulky jewelry. Even the girl who feels she is too tall can minimize her height by wearing large hats with width, straight to m e d i u m - f u l l skirts, hip- length jackets and large handbags. On the other hand, the tiny girl c«n add height by wearing outfits of one color, with vertical triming and narrow self- belts. Small hats, such as toques, also will add height. So, you see, an illusion can be created for all. A Book by Any Of her Name YOUR "FOR RENT 1 signs come down fast when you use Classified. Dial HF. 2-. r 95!).

ABBY * * * * DEAR ABBY: It was very nice of you to tell that lady not to blame her husband for calling her another woman's name In his sleep. You said, "A man can't be blamed for what he does in his sleep." I disagree with your advice. I would have advised that woman to give her husband a good punch in the eye because "a woman can't be blamed for what SHE docs in HER sleep, either." This works because I have tried it, and my husband has never called me by another woman's name in his sleep again.--"SIXTY" * * · · DEAR ABBY: Last night i felt very blue and depressed. My parents were not home so I telephoned my boy friend, who is taking basic training in Texas. We got carried away in conversation and talked for 35 minutes. When we hung up, I called the operator to find out how much the call cost and she said $23.80. Now, Abby. I am only 15 years old and do not have that kind of money. I am afraid to tell my mother because I know she will be furious. I am terribly sorry for w-hat I did, but that won't help now. Would it be proper for me to ask my boy friend for the money? --TELEPHONE TROUBLES DEAR TROUBLES: Don't ask your boy friend for the money. He has his own troubles. Tell your mother and ask her to take It out of your allowance (If you get one). Otherwise, offer to "work It out" somehow. Your .parents \vere lucky your boy friend wasn't In Korea.
