Mrs. Lombard Finds Entertaining Enjoyable In a day of instant every- things and a "Let's take them out to dinner" - attitude, Mrs. Bruce Lombard still likes the graciougness and comfortable feeling of entertaining her friends at home. "I think you get to know people better when you have them in your own home, and it's more enjoyable," she explained. Although new to Carroll — they moved here from Denison in September, when her husband became director of special education for Carroll County — she said, "You don't really feel new in Carroll for long. It's a nice town and the people are very friendly." Newcomers Club is a good way to get started in meeting people, she added. Their heme, en North Adams, is geared to making their guests feel at home. The living room, attractive in blues, greens and yellows, is decorated in what Lois Lombard calls "my eclectic style." It features comfortable love seats before a fireplace, tall brass candle holders from Thailand, and Victorian chairs from the Salvation Army, carefully re-finished and reupholstered by Mrs. Lombard. "I like the little extra things that add to a house, and make it your own," she commented. Among the little extras that give their home its warmth and personality, are oil paintings by Lois. When their children, Todd 7, and Kara 5, were younger, she took oil painting lessons. "It was a hobby, and Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, Nov. 23, 1970 will be again in the future," she said. Painting is fun; you have to experiment, but there's really no wrong thing; it just depends on what you like and appreciate." Dr. Lombard has contributed to their home's decor too, with metal sculpture. When entertaining in their home, Lois Lombard likes to try new and interesting recipes for her guests, to make the meal special. "I guess you could say I like gourmet cooking," she said. Her husband encourages her cooking experiments. She's discovered that "you can have something really elegant without much extra efort." Of course, like any artist, her cooking masterpieces are not always successes. But as she said, "you can probably fail with the easy things, too." One of her near disasters involved some salmon steaks, baked in cream. She left the kitchen for a few to many minutes, and when she returned, had curdled cream. Like a true trooper, she salvaged the juices from the steaks, and used them in a new cream sauce. Her guests were pleased. Lois also likes to create her own recipes from what she has in the house. Mrs. Lombard is interested in working with older people, especialy residents of nursing homes. Lois, who's a registered nurse, organized a teen volun­ teer group, call the Gingham Girls, for a nursing home in Denison. She became really involved in this aranged for church come to the home, and instituted a craft afternoon for the residents of the home. "Working with older people is so rewarding; they appreciate | everything you do for them," she explained. Lois Lombard is getting ready for the holidays, although for her that doesn't mean planning a traditional meal. "I don't really have regular holiday stand-bys. I'll be experimenting, with new recipes again this year." The closest thing to a stand-by recipe is her recipe for Turkey-Sausage Casserole, made with leftover holdiay turkey. Another recipe she likes to serve at the holidays, especially for dinner parties, is her hot Crab Dip. Chocolate Ambrosia is an easy to make dessert, and Dr. Lombard's favorite. —Staff Photo Mrs. Bruce Lombard with Kara and Todd. Turkey-Sausage Casserole Combine the following, and cook for 15 minutes: 2 envelopes dehydrated chicken noodle soup 1 cup instant rice 5 cups boling water Add the above mixture to the following which has been browned: 1 pound sausage 2 cups chopped celery 1 medium onion, chopped Add 2 cups cut up cooked turkey Over The Back Fence While the turkey takes the spotlight at Thanksgiving, wonderful accompaniments can make it "the best Thanksgiving meal ever." Whatever comes to the table with such a noble bird should be equally grand. Since its inception, Thanksgiving has been celebrated by a groaning board and a long, leisurely meal. In fact, the first Thanksgiving feast lasted for three days. Governor William Bradford of Massachusetts decreed a feast of thanks in gratitude for an abundant harvest. THANKSGIVING CARDS HALLMARK CARDS & GIFTS Westgate Mall Carroll By SHARON HEISEL The savory smells penetrated the forest . . . and as every schoolchild knows, Massasoit and ninety friendly Indian braves dropped in to join the feast. The party went on and on; the eating interrupted by Psalm singing, exhibitions of military drill by Captain Miles Standish, sports and a demonstration of war dances by the Indians. Thanksgiving meals are steeped in tradition, but lucky for today's housewife, market shelves are stocked with convenience foods to help make preparations for the big feast a bit easier. A flavorful new stuffing for the noble bird is built around perpared stuffing mix, personalized with a few seasoning tricks. Orange Stuffing V-i cup butter or margarine 1 cup chopped celery 2 small onions, minced 1 6-ounce can orange juice concentrate, thawed, but undiluted 2 packages (8-ounces each) prepared stuffing mix 2 tbsp. parsley flakes Melt butter in large skillet.

There is talk, around the rotunda, of the Legislature being called upon to increase salaries of state employees by $8-to-$9 million annually. State employees received their last general pay increase, about five per cent, in July of 1969. Apparently the Jacobs Study, a report prepared by a Chicago firm, will be the starting point in building a new salary base. Already approved by the merit system council, this report calls for salary adjustments ranging from five to 18 per cent. Six months ago when the report was presented to the state executive council it was estimated that it would take approximately S5 million to implement. Since 1969 salaries were used for comparative purposes in preparing the report, there is some thought of adding a cost of living increase, maybe five per cent, to the recommendations and then using this as the basis for a salary recommendation to the Legislature. Former Gov. Norman Erbe, now a regional head of the Department of Transportation in Seattle, is recuperating from a mishap he had several weeks ago. Friends say he stepped into an unlighted elevator and fell 15 feet smashing his foot. of a minority group be appointed to the merit employment council when the next vacancy occurs. The committee, which has just concluded a series of hearings, is also suggesting that the Legislature establish a state compliance officer who would be responsible for carrying out the executive order issued by Gov. Ray on equal opportunity employment in state government. This compliance officer would also be responsible for informing minority groups and state agencies of federal and local programs available for training minority persons, informing minority groups of opportunities in state government, determining availability of public and private funds, and seeking compliance of state agencies with the Iowa civil rights act of 1965.
