The "cooking encounter" will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 4 in Moody Memorial First United Methodist Church, Avenue U and 53rd Street, and will include a salad luncheon. At the two sessions, a morning class from 9:30 to 11:30 and an afternoon lesson from 1 to 3 p.m., Sanders will be demonstrating technics in preparing French cuisine which she learned at Paris' Cordon Bleu and La One-Sex Tradition Prevails By RICHARD FOGALEY News Staff Writer The liberation of women, and men for that matter, has come a long way, but it seems for all the gains in equality in the office and home, the club remains the last bastion of separation of the sexes. Hitchcock Events Set The Hitchcock Home Demonstration Club has a number of events scheduled for the fall season. Club members will participate in the Holiday Workshop to be held by the Galveston County Demonstration Club Council from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday in the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall in AltaLoma. Members interested in giving demonstrations are asked to contact Mrs. James Price at 925-2489. The Hitchcock club is also planning a bus tour to the Herb Farm in Cleveland on Oct. 22, and members are welcome to attend the 4-H Awards Dinner at 6 p.m. Oct. 7 in the Santa Fe High School cafeteria. The dinner is covered dish. The one-sex membership is a tradition in many of the nearly 80 private and public organizations on the island which range from professional to civic to social, and out of respect for tradition it will probably stay that way. For some, "it's the one chance to have a meal without the women," said one local club official. The Jaycees national organization gave six states the opportunity to have female members on a trial basis, after which the national delegates could decide on the future of women members. Otto Schikschneit, district supervisor for Jaycees and a delegate to the recent convention, said a voice vote on the proposed new members was taken and, although it sounded to him like a tie, women found themselves still barred from the Jaycees. None of the local Jaycee organizations have women in the clubs. Schikschneit said it should not be that way, and quoting the Jaycee motto, added, "Why should we deprive women of 'individual development through community service?'" The subject will probably be raised at the 1980 convention, he said. Klwanis International has voted against female membership at every membership convention but the last, and the subject was not directly broached this year, according to Steve Huffman, a local delegate to the meeting. Huffman said the delegates agreed to award honorary memberships in the organization to citizens who make outstanding contributions to the community. When asked if these awardees could be female, the officials answered, "If she's not allowed as a regular member, how can she be an honorary member?" While the parent club remains for "Men Only," the Key Club, Kiwanis' affiliate for high school students, will induct its first female members in ceremonies Monday night. Several of the women's clubs, started many years ago out of a need for organizations similar to the ones for men, are also sexually segregated. Membership in the American Women's Association is by invitation only and no males have been invited, according to Mary Jane Martorell. president of a Galveston ABWA chapter. As for the REDUCE LIKE A LADY AND FEEL LIKE ONE, TOO! ! had been overweight all my life. When I graduated from high school, I weighed 185 pounds. By Christmas. 1976, I had reached 202. Later in January. 1977, my Mother showed me some family pictures taken at our reunion. I had never seen them before. One was taken from the back. It was horrible. There were just rolls of fat. I actually cried over the picture. My husband had been asking me to do something about my weight for years. Being as big as I was and with a bad back I didn't want people to see me trying to exercise. Pat Walker's tola) figure correction program has been the answer to my prayers. With no discomfort to my bad back, I took the Pat Walker gentle treatments. I lost weight, firmed and toned, and regained my dignity. The counsellors taught me aood nutritional eating habits that have benefited my family and me. I have felt good the whole time I have been losing my weight. I have never felt tired or starving. Everyone has commented that my skin hasn't sagged as mosf people's do when they lose a lot of weight. When I started with Pat Walker's I was wearing size 20's and they were skin-tight. Last week I bought a size 6 pair of pants. I was so proud of my new figure. I can't wait to return to our reunion and i certainly won't be afraid of anyone taking my P icture - Signed Pamela C.

An expert chef who grew up in Luxembourg and came to the U.S. 10 years ago, she lends a modern, practical approach to classic French cooking. She will emphasize the use of fresh ingredients at the two sessions. Each will focus on different courses in the meal. Sanders, who is a member of the faculty of Batterie de Cuisine in Houston, is adored by her students, not only for her expertise, but for her charming approach to the subject of cooking and for her insistence that everyone sample the dishes she has prepared. The event is open to the public, and the $7.50 charge .will include both cooking sessions and a salad luncheon prepared by the auxiliary members. Funds from the event will go to support pre-school vision testing for children throughout the county, a project of the Galveston County Medical Society Auxiliary. Door prizes donated by Eiband's, the World of Cookery in the Baybrook Mall and Upton's Tea will be awarded. Appliances for use in the demonstration are being supplied by Sears.

Sainthood Is Expensive possible future invitation of men to join the club, she will bring the subject to the attention of the national membership at the November convention. Organizations like the Junior League and the Pilot Club remain bulwarks against male intrusion. In the past, medicine was a man's profession, with women tolerated. The Galveston County Medical Society, though, has been coed throughout its existence, according to President Henry K. Davis. Even the auxiliary is open to doctors' husbands and wives. The local Propeller Club has no female members, but its Anchorage, Alaska, chapter is governed by a woman. The local Rotary Clubs are male establishments, as are the Optimist Clubs, and representatives for each said that women as members would pose problems which would have to be resolve-J by the national organizations, which have in the past turned down requests from other chapters. The League of Women Voters has allowed men to join since the early 1970s, but for 50 years prior it was "Women Only." By Abigail Van Buren i> 1«W Bj CMc*eo Ttibun* M V Newt S/od Inc. DEAR ABBY: We are three married sisters deeply concerned about our mother who, up until a few months ago, was a normal, healthy mother and a loving grandmother. Mother got involved with a weird religious cull, and now she's taking part in voodoo rites. She gave them $5,000 to make her a "saint." They locked her in a house for seven days and nights with another "saint" who is her "Godmother." She went through a ritual during which her head was shaved, and chickens and doves were sacrificed and their blood poured over her body. For a year she must wear a white turban, support her "Godmother Saint," and get permission before going anyplace. Mother now actually believes that she has the power to cure, curse and kill! Her lovely home has become filthy —cluttered with candles and all sorts of ceremonial paraphernalia. She hangs up the phone when we try to reason with her, and says if we can't accept her new religion we can all drop dead. She vows she will never give up her religion even if it means never seeing her children or grandchildren again. The police know all about this cult, but they say they can't do anything about it because our mother joined it of her own free will. Her doctor says she definitely needs psychiatric treatment, but we can't get a psychiatrist to commit her. Meanwhile, our lawyer says that he is powerless to act without a psychiatrist's affidavit. Please help us. WAITING IN NEW JERSEY DEAR WAITING: Even though your mother insists that •he chose this "religion" of her own free will, she obviously w*s influenced by some kind of mind-control such as hypnotism or brainwashing. The fact that your mother paid $5,000 to become a "saint" and now claims powers to cure, curse and kill is clear evidence that she is a very sick woman. You need a lawyer and a psychiatrist who will work together in an effort to get your mother deprogrammed and reitored to normalcy. Don't give upl DEAR ABBY: Some weeks ago you ran a letter from a lady who claimed flatly that everyone in the world knows the Swiss to be closer with a centime, tighter with a token, if you please, than any other people. That statement has rankled me ever since. As one whose ancestors wore the tartans and kilts, I take umbrage at her claim, for the whole world knows that the canny Scots are the most penurious people in the world. As a matter of fact, 'tis common ken here in bonnie Arizona that the Grand Canyon was dug in a fortnight when my maternal great-great-grandfather, Pedro Gonzales MrLeod (Pronounced McCloud), dropped a nickel, and it rolled down a gopher hole.

October Runf est Deadline Nears Registration is continuing for the Women's October Runf est, a "fun run" for Galveston County women being sponsored by the College of the Mainland physical education department on Oct. 7. This is believed to be the first women's run offered in the County and all area women are invited. The entry fee is $3, which includes the cost of the tee shirts awarded all who finish the run. Registration deadline is this Sunday. Forms or additional information is available from the COM physical education department at 938-1211 ext. 422. The runfest will feature a 10,000 meter (6.2 mile) and 5,000 meter (3.1 mile) run. Certificates will be awarded the first 10 finishers in each of five age categories ranging from 14 years up. The emphasis, however, is not so much on winning but on finishing. Beverly Benson, volunteer coordinator of the run, says the main purpose is to give women an opportunity to run and to acquaint newcomers with the benefits of regular running, jogging or walking. If dad can x sip his scotch; why can't junior puff his pot? For starters. Scotch is legal. Pot isn't. Is that fair? Well, a case can be made for legalizing marijuana, and in many states.both attitudes and penalties have softened in recent years. Proponents of pot point out that we let adults decide for themselves whether or not to use many substances that may be harmful. For example, there is considerable evidence that alcohol and tobacco can be harmful, but they are not illegal. On the other side, many doctors and researchers are not sure of the long-term effects of smoking marijuana. One thing is sure-marijuana is a hallucinogen that distorts perception of time and space, so it doesn't mix with driving. But then neither does alcohol. What do you think?
