Kunstfest begins Monday' H A R R I S B U R G - Old Economy Village, one of the most unique of the many historic properties administered by The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, is getting primed for the June 13 opening of its Second Annual "Kunstfest," or two-day Crafts Festival. For seven hours (11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) on both Saturday, June 13 and Sunday, June H, the restored buildings, the gardens and streets of Old Economy Village - located along the Ohio River in Ambridge, Beaver County, 26 miles northwest of Pittsburgh -- will be the scene of continuous craft demonstrations by expert practitioners of 19th Century skills, plus a host of other special features. The latter will include band concerts in the gardens; concerts of original music from the celebrated musical archives of the long-defunct Harmony Society; p e r- formances by barber shop quartets in the old Barber Shop of the Village, and the availability of a wide range of food speciaties, prepared and served on the spot. Inaugurated last year by the Harmonie Associates, Inc., a . nonprofit group of private citizens organized to assist the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the continued development of Old Economy Village, t h e "Kunstfest" attracted nearly 7,000 people.- Many more are expected this year, and adequate preparations have been made to handle the indicated increase . in attendance during the two days of "Kunstfest." Altogether, more than, 30 craftsmen will be on the grounds and in the buildings, d e m o nstrating everything from cabinetmaking to the arts of flower preservation and china painting; from the home manufacture of woolen garments (all the way from live angora goats, source of the raw material, to the final weaving process); to the "street" operations of the blacksmiths, t i n s m i t h s , potters, candlemakers and soapmakers. Among the artisans demon-, strating their skills will be' a number of craftsmen from the mountains of West ' V i r g i n i a , including one who specializes in the age-old art of fabricating wooden toys for children. In the days (late 1820's until the 1860's) when Old Economy Village - last home of the p i e tistic. German-oriented communal organization known as the Harmony Society' -was in its heyday, and a most significant factor in the cultural as well as commercial development o f W e s t e r n Pennsylvania, these crafts were commonplace. At that time, almost everything individuals or a community used was purchased, or grown, in the raw material · state, then fabricated into the necessities of life. The Harmonists were experts at all of this, and left an indelible- mark on both the cultural and economic history of Pennsylvania. It is the purpose of the "Kunstfest" to bring about a better understanding of how these people lived, why they lived the way they did, and -- in the final analysis - to make life as it was, some 150 years ago in America, a "living thing" again, among the buildings and gardens in which that life was lived, originally.

Spritzer is cooler By WILLIAM CLIFFORD Warm weather brings lazy days of casual living, more time spent out of doors, simpler eating and drinking. In place of hot meals in the dining room you instinc- irely turn tr c.jld picnic foods a n ' . informal cookouts. You want cold drinks too. In thL seascn you need wine you can feel completely relaxed with, wines that take ice and that mix well in any company. A most popular light summer wine drink is the one sometimes culled a spritzer,, which is white wine and soda water. Try it made with Christian Brothers Rhine Wine. Just pour the wine over ice cubes half \vay up in a tall glass, then fill to the lop with soda. You can also combine red wine and soda on ice. In fact a French wine merchant I know advises this as one of the best ways to use leftover \v; . Use Christian Brothers Claret or Burgundy, both available in economical gallon jugs. Another good use for Claret, and one of the prettiest of n i l drinks, is the traditional Claret Lemonade. Half f i l l a tall glass with lemonade and an ice cube or two. Now hold the glass at an angle and pour the wine carefully down the inside until it fills up. If you pour slowly and steadily, the wine will float on top. Drink through a straw, ' moving it up and down to taste the tart wine and sweeter lemonade alternately. Or stir together, after admiring the colors, to make a very superior wine- pink lemonade. O n e o f t h e m o s t sophisticated iippetizcr drinks in French restaurants these days is the Kir, a glass of white wine with a little cassis (which is black currant liqueur). Make it with well- chilled Christian ' Brothers Cbablis, Or DM.- cassis with drv vermouth on ico, called j Vf-rmmill) ca.--.sis. Federal guidelines hailed: milestone in women's rights ·A \ - WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Labor Department has issued guidelines designed to prohibit discrimination against women on jobs under federal contract, a move described by H female spokesman as "a most appropriate milestone of women's progress." Elizabeth Duncan Koontz, director of the Labor Department's women's bureau, made the remark Tuesday while announcing the guidelines at the White House. The rules ban sexual bias in jobs, wages, hours, seniority and retirement. They result from a presidential task force review of women's rights and responsibilities submitted to the Nixon administration six months go. At the same time, the American Association of University Women Tuesday released a study in which 84 per'cent-of the women and 77 per cent of the,men who responded to a questionnaire said that women were discriminated against in the business world. The questionnaire was published in the AAUW's journal last January. Of the organization's 170,000 ' members, about 7,000 -- including nearly 3,000 men -- responded to the opinionnaire. Without specific guidelines to go .by, Mrs. Koonta said, there was a gray area and confusion about sex discrimination in such jobs. She said the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which investigates. women's rights on jobs, has a backlog of some 600 complaints of -sex discrimination. A presidential directive against sex discrimination on government work contracts has been on the books since 1965. But not until now have exact guidelines been set publicly. The guidelines prohibit advertising in newspaper columns headed male or female unless sex is a legitimate occupational qualification. . They prohibit any distinction between married or unmarried persons and the denying of employment to. women with young children unless the same policy exists for men. Seniority based solely on sex also is banned, as are retirement requirements for women that differ from those for males. Les' Boris Vivants will hold first gastronomic event Stitching o detail counts Les Bons Vivants. after weeks of considering, planning and observing, will hold their first gourmet dinner Monday at theTowne House, Media. They ars a society of men with a common interest in good wine and food. What more appropriate location for more original gastronomic celebration than the Wine Cellar of the Towne House? They'll meet at 6:30 p.m. for a cocktail reception and be seated to a dinner comprised of at least five courses, at 8 p.m. Dress is black lie. Menus will be printed in French. Service is white glove. The 15 members of the society share an interest in the preparation and serving of gastronomic delights. They enjoy sharing their pleasure "in the company of those with lik- interests." Most metropolitan centers have similar groups. Members have visited some to compare fine points and seek erudition. It's unusual for a small community such as Media to foster such a society. Among objectives of Les Bons Vivants are to broaden their knowledge of good wine a n d food; e n c o u r a g e improvement of cuisine and service in restaurants of out- area; promote and enjoy good fellowship t h r o u g h the anticipation of a memorable dinner and the enjoyment of one: make and research recipes, to create gourmet dinners. The gentlemen say further they wish to experiment with foods and to p e r f e c t specialities; become knowledgeable about international cuisine, regional specialities and traditional classics; have the pleasure to know they arc- able to prepare gourmet foods and the confidence of this knowledge when dining in fine restaurants. What they arc looking forward to Monday, however, is gratification that comes from appreciative dinner companions at a sumptuous repast. Straiiord park T o p - s t i tc h t n g is an important fashion detail found on' patterns for home sewing fashions. If you do it pwpetly, this detail can acid m'.r-rest to a garment. Ace.irate stitching and spacing is m^essary for a professional look. You can top - stitch .with regular sewing tin-cad, silk buttonhole twist, or several strands of embroiotry floss. Use regular thread when sewing two or more rows spaced next to each other. Buttonhole. t w i s t o r embroidery,. with their lustrous appeaiame. make top-stitching nure prominent. However, it's flifiV.'Uif to find a. thread to mated a fabric in buttonhole- twist o r embroidery floss. Loosening the machine tension and lengthening the stitch is another tcvl'i'iique you can use when doing top- stitching. Remember, for p;xk-ssional- looking sewing oetail on fashions you sew,' top-stitching accurately is important. garden fair The Strafford Park Garden Fair will take place at the park grounds, 582 Upper Gtilph Road, Strafford, from 10 to 4 Saturday.
