This was entertainment of professional quality and the audience found It delightful. The featured speaker for the meeting, Mrs. Gordon Sprlng- mier, was introduced by Mrs. Joseph Booohiardl, the program chairman. Mrs. Sprlngmier chose to review a book by Phyllis Mo- Ginley entitled, "Sixpence In Her Shoe." This book in priase and defense of the domestie profession the author eaUs "a kind of autobiography." She claims that as a housewUs and mother, the domestie is her first pro fession, writing her second. Housewifery is the oldest profession, she states; compared to it all others are upstarts, and she unashamedly confesses she is a nest builder by instinct and inclination. A good education, she feels, is no hindrance to housework; ratlier, it supplements a womem's talents as a housewife. With good humor and much wit, the author outUnes the skills and virtues, patience and effort, demanded in the practice of her "first" profession. Since the nest must be filled, a family is necessary. Thus the writer takes up the question, "Are children people?" Mrs. Springmier had her audience smiling and nodding in agreement as she summarized the author's amusing discussion of this question. At the conclusion of Mrs. Springmier's most entertaining review, Harold Hathaway, principal, announced attendance awards to Miss Alberta Johnson's first grade class and Mrs. Brown's sbrth grade. TTie assembly adjourned to enjoy cake and oof- fee served from a table beautifully decorated ki autumn colors and centered with an overflowing hom-of-plenty.

Also MRS. H. W. HANNA will be the main speaker when the Mt. Vernon Art Guild meets Monday evening, November 21, in the Community Center. She is shown with a portrait she painted while she was visiting in India. She oalls it "Cha-Cha". The theme of her discussion will be "Creative Gifts For Giving." The Salad Bowl By SALLY By Emily Brownfleld The basis of Mrs. Hannah's talk is that, as she says, there are so many things we have that can be made into gifts." She will display ample examples of what she means. Among those that she plans to bring will be a huge chess set made by her son using pieces of tools and machine parts which he painted with matte black when assembled. Another item will be book ends made of clay that hai-- dens in the air. Li one case, a clay model was made of the head of a heifer that was raised for a 4-H project by one of the children. Mrs. Hannah will also show ways to make still life pictures using mementos associated with a favorite person. Sketches, doodles, colored slides can be all worked into individualized gifts that cannot be purchased in the store. Bowie, as she is known to most people, feels tiiat tiie artist should be the best gift giver because the artist can adapt the gift to the person receiving it. In her words, "I've been doing this all my life. When I knit I adjust the pattern to allow for the special needs of the individual like extra length or width which can not be obtained in a purchased garment." She also likes to use various kits like those found in the popular women's magazines for the waU hanging in her home depicting Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" or the needlework clock that actually tells time on her kitchen wall. These are examples of painting in doth, thread and yam. It has been a life long interest in art that has kept Hannah busy with crafts. She grew up in Northern Illinois in the town of De Pue and attended the University of Illinois, At one time she had her own pottem shop in which the accent was on original pieces, making molds of them,,and experimenting with many types of glazes. "Later she lived for some time in India and by having help with the housework, she had her first chance to write and paint. Fi'iends volunteered to sit for portraits. Having live models, she found, made quite a differ­ ence in her progress, and soon she had a fine reputation for her portraits. After moving to Texico and becoming a member of the Art Guild, she entered one of her favorites, "Cha-Cha," (Hindu for Uncle) in the Fall Art Show last yeax-. At that time she entered one of her craft projects which attracted favorable attention. It was a glass mosaic of El Greco's "Holy Trinity." Besides her own works in painting and crafts, Mrs, Hannah has collected art pieces from various places such as Bangkok, Thailand; Vienna, Austria; England and India. She also has a strong interest in gem stones and has had many made into special pieces while she was in foreign countries. This summer she has found time to branch out into landscape and still life painting with helpful suggestions from the capable artists, Eulah Nance Morgan and Ethel Mylius. It is Uie constant interest in art and crafts that keeps the energetic Mrs, Hannah alert to new applications of artistic abilities. Since I've always had trouble trying to make good slaw, I was happy to receive a telephone call from Mrs, Bobble Artis of 1005 Park avenue with a recipe which, she teUs me, was created by her husband. . . And, here is how he does it. . . First, a large head of cabbage is shredded and two large onions are peeled and cut into thin rings. . . A layer of the cabbage is placed in a bowl and covered with onion rings—and this process is repeated until all of both ingredients are used. . . Then, three- fourths cup sugar is sprinkled over the mixture. . . . Finally, in a pan, one cup of vinegar is mixed with one tablespoon sugar, one teaspooa prepared mustard, one and one-half teaspoon salt, and one teaspoon celery salt . . Bring the mixture to a rolling boil and add one cup salad oil. . . while hot, pour over the cabbage and onion slices, weight down with a plate and, when cool, put in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours. That, gals, is how slaw is prepared at the Artis home—and I do appreciate finding out just how it's done. . . The truth of the m^ti;er is this: I have yet to make what could be termed tasty slaw—that has long been evident by the way it is not eaten when I prepare it. . . However, I think folks will quit shying away from it when I fix it "the Artis way." -0- -0- -0- It had never occured to me that French toast could be prepared in the oven. . . Not until I received an unsigned recipe telling me how it. can be accomplished. . . The directions read like this: In a shallow bowl, put two eggs, one-half cup milk, one-fourth teaspoon salt, and one fourth cup cooking oil. . . Blend until the mixture is smooth. Quickly dip eight slices of bread —one at a time—in the mixture and place the slices in a well greased shallow baking dish. At center of each slice, put a dab of oleo, put into the oven —which has been preheated to 500 degrees—and bake about ten minutes—or longer for a deeper brown. Well, now, why couldn't have thought of that. (For the same reason I don't think of a lot of other excellent short cuts to preparing special treats such as this.) Incidentally, the sender of that recipe also suggests that the French toast is especially ap­ pealing when served with link sausage. . . And, she has her Own method for preparing it, too. . . Fh^t, she puts a half cup hot water in a large skillet.. puts the sausage in and quickly brings it to a boil. . . lets it boil for about five minutes. . drains it, and puts it into another skillet which is well heated and contains about a tablespoon of cooking oil. . . The sausage will quickly brown, will be juicy and tender, and ready when the toast comes out of the oven. (I'm glad this column is being written right after I've had lunch otherwise I fear my drooling would gravely interfere with my typing. . . AJs it is, I can promise myself that next Sunday morning's breakfast will Include both the toast and the sausage and that gives me something « • «r DEAR ABBY Here's What Makes A Good Marriage Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: You are pretty good at getting right to the heart of things in very few word Can you tell me why there is 60 much divorce today? H.H.T. DEAR H.H.T.: Most divorces result from the illusion that a "perfect" marriage is achievable, and anytiiing less is a failure. Consequentiy, when each discovers the inevitable human imperfections in the other, he becomes disillusioned, resentful, and frustrated. Then two otherwise normal, intelligent people who, at one time "loved" each other enough to marry, become part-time strangers and sometime enemies. Married couples should realize that a successful marriage is like a successful business partnership. It cannot succeed without mutual trust, confidence, and respect. And the sooner the "partners" get down to the business of making the best of the most challenging relationship In ell human experience — mai-- riage — the sooner we can turn our divorce courts into bowling alleys. And I'm all for it. DEAR ABBY: When being introduced to a pei-son, is it proper to say, "I've heard a lot about you?" HAL DEAR HAL: It aU depends on what you've heard. DEAR ABBY: My husband has one habit which worries me to death. He keeps a cigar or pipe acted business in Mt. Vernon yesterday.

Called Georgia Crackling bread, it was sent to me by Regna Kuykendall. To prepare it, mix one and one half cups commeal witit two tablespoons flour, three level teaspoons baking powder, and one-half teaspoon salt. . . add one well beaten egg, one and one-fourths cup milk, and one and one-half cups cracklings (pork skins fried very crisp), bake for about twenty minutes in oven preheated to 400 degree (I say tiiat is enough to make any gal start gazing wistfully over the tree tops in the general direction of Georgia where, down through the years, cooks have been favorably known for their original recipes. . . But, being unable to take' off, the next best thing to do is head for the kitchen and start rustling up the ingredients for bread that is second to none—I know, because I've eaten it. . .
