Chancei are the real eauie of her tufbulent behavior IB « simple ease of nerves, Turkish soprano Leyla Oencer declares: "Opera is one of ttte ntoit satisfying but most difficult profesilons in the world, It's ini- possible not to be nervous in this profession." The raven-haired prlma donna, who's winding up her third singing tour of the United States, says that a opera star is always worried whether she will be liked by the audience and music critics. She explains that this uncertainty always makes a star extremely tense. "Every perform-- ance is just like taking an important examination," she declares. It's this constant pressure that Mme. Oencer blames for the tantrums that often shower a singer like Maria Callas with more publicity than her artistic talents, The tempestuous Brooklyn-born diva made headlines recently when she was fired by both the Metropoll* an and La Scala operas. An example of the extreme presides that an opera star must undergo occurred when the Turkish .oprano was once called on to replace Miss Callas who had can celed an appearance in San, Francisco. Mme. Gencer explains that she had never performed in thnt particular opera and had to learn SOPRANO LEYLA OENCER the entire score in a week. The Turkish singer admits that she is nervous every time she walks on stage. She explains that before each performance she tries to soothe her nerves by drinking plenty ol hot tea or coffee. But while on stage, she says, that she must con stantly remind herself to remain calm. Mme. Gencer admits that occasionally her tenseness reaches the breaking point. But the resulting explosions are always tim- KEEP THEM BUSY — You can accomplish more during the holidays if you keep the youngsters busy.

In one month she lost three pay checks worth a small tot- tune. Baffled friends say that she reacted to the loss with the nonchalance of a millionaire who accidentally drops a nickel into e storm sewer. But Mme. OUneef Calmly explains, "There are touch more important things to worry about than money.", Friends find this attitude even more amazing since her husband is a Turkish bank manager. Mme. Gencer credits her husband with much of her singing success. She explains that he's the one who urged her to become an opera star in the first place. And he did it after they were married. "I have & very nice husband," she says. "He's exceptional." Mme. Gencer studied voice at the Istanbul Conservatory from 1946 to 1949, making her debut in Ankara in 1950. Since then she has sung her way across nearly a dozen nations, proving that — nerves or not — she has the ability to hold audiences in the palm of her hand.

It is applied with a wooden spoon or spatula, or fingered on. It will remain white and fresh for a good number of weeks, so the mail box may be made long before Junior or Sis' Christmas cards come rolling in. A pencil holder may be made out of a frozen juice can. These are decorated with tempera-detergent paint, made by adding one teaspoon of soap or detergent to two or three teaspoons of paint. This recipe is the answer to making the paint stick to shiny, waxed or metal surfaces. The little pencil holder may be painted in a green or 'sky blue background. Little fir trees may be daubed on with thick, pale green and white paint in the tempera- detergent mixture. Use a stiff brush. By VIVIAN BROWN Christmas plans require organization in the household. The first thing to do is to figure out ways to keep the youngsters busy so that they aren't underfoot during this season of frayed nerves and dwindling cash reserves.

A bowl of soap suds, opaque paint, and old boxes and juice cans can keep a young crew of potential noise makers on the silent beam for a good spell. Large cereal or soap boxes, for instance, may be pressed into service as Christmas card holders. When finished you'll have Santa Claus going do^n a cardboard chimney. First there is the paper work. A crayoned area of bricks is made on paper and then pasted over the cereal box that should be in a chimney shape. The top of the box should be removed of course. Santa's face may be drawn on another piece of paper and put on a piece of cardboard and pasted at the top of the "chimney." Santa Claus Christmas seals are good for that.
