THE EVENING SUN. BALTIMORE, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20. 1957 PAGE 23 0K 'fm U4vv- Ah J W-.,'-7 s a . ' if6i 't.- ;.' ! .r2i2; a It THE WONDER OF IT ALL One thousand nine hundred and fifty-seven years ago, the world received its greatest jrift m-hen the baby Jesus vas born to Mary beneath the . atar of Bethlehem. The miracle of the world's greatest moment, the Nativity, is depicted here with ceramic figurine (center picture above). An impressive scene such as thia in every American home would manifest in the hearts of the very young the real meaning of Christmas. Children will receive the most fabulous toys for Christ mas this year perhaps the greatest material items since the tradition of gift-giving was established. And, not in the least of these this year will be replicas of the scientific miracles of man. For years youngsters have visualized space-borne trips. And, although still not realized, even- tual space travel is not too far fetched today. Sputnik I, the 185-pound man-made satellite launched into an orbit around the earth 2Va months ago and which is still on its constant global journey miles above the earth's surface, took toymakers by surprise. But, they are catching up and the principles of sputnik may be witnessed in the new space toys pictured here which are now available in many toy departments. But what pleases little boys oftimes leaves their small sisters unimpressed. Cuddy animals-no matter their size such as the oversized ones (at left) or novelty styled and packaged toileteries (right) are their preferences. Sometimes a young miss of a more mechanical mind, may take a temporary fancy to the streamlined electric train Santa brought to brother. Or again, she might appreciate even more the present that will last long after the last holiday decorations is taken down a pet parakeet shown here preening itself, appropriately, in the reflection of a Christmas tree ball. And, what of the pre-lollipop set? All the joys they'll know at future Christmases will begin when, for the first time, they meet the grand old man himself Santa Claus if only in a life-size cardboard cutout, shown top right. MR.

By Eleanor Arnett Nash ft" I it, I Mrs. Nash HUNDREDS of thousands of words have been written about her husband, Major Alexander De Seversky, one of the greatest authorities on aviation. But my interest was in her, an outstanding modern woman. This interest redoubled when I discovered that one- of 1 her m o a.t prized flying trophies was won in our city some years ago. Flying then was truly a great adven ture. One expected the unexpected. And sometimes one took advantage of it. She and her husband were flying to Wash ington. Below them they sighted Baltimore and noticed that an air meet was going on. She signaled she was going down. When she landed she entered a spot landing contest, the only woman and twenty-two men. I asked her what a spot land ing was and she said casually, Oh, you go up to two thousand feet, cut your motor and make a dead stick landing as close to the spot as you can," , As casually, she made the closest landing and walked off with the trophy. "Were the men cross?" I Isked. "After all, a woman " , "They were wonderful," she said. "Almost as pleased as I was. A woman flyer, in those days, was something different." The De Seversky apartment in New York is something dif ferent, too. You probably saw it on "Person To Person." But what you didn't see is the view they have of Central Park, looking north, from, the seventeenth floor. They would select a high Modern Woman floor the eagle in them, I sup- Fruitcake Tricks You can add a holiday touch to your Christmas cooking, yet quicken the work of preparing those dishes. Waxed paper and a pastry brush are all that's necessary for some fruitcake tricks. To glaze fruitcakes, boil equal amounts of corn syrup and water for one minute, then spread the hot syrup on the tops with a pastry brush. For easy removal of cakes from pans, line them with silicone parchment paper or double thicknesses of waxed paper. Cut strips to fit lengthwise ana crosswise in the pans, allow -inch to extend above all sides. You can decorate a plain Jane cake or fruitcake with Brazil nut "winter daisies" for a gay holiday trim. First, cover unshelled Brazils with cold water; boil three minutes, then drain. Let the nuts stand in cold water one minute; drain, crack and shell. Next, cover the Brazlli with cold water and simmer two or three minutes; drain. Cut paper- tnm, lengthwise slices with a vegetable parer to form "petals." Place the petals around cherry halves to form pretty CbrUtmai Cower for the cake. pose. She if quite lovely and, in spite of her prowess, very fem inine. Her hair is honey colored and so was the silk-woven house coat that she wore. She is very outgoing, as easy to talk to as an old friend, and as interesting as only those who really know their stuff can be. AT one point she chuckled. "To speak of back seat drivers," she said. Thenhe told me of going up in her new fast plane, she in front and he back of her, with no dual controls. The motor conked over the hangar. She took the plane down, under high tension wires, "and all the time he was working on imaginary controls." She told me so much more of adventures she had had, all in the casual manner most of us use in outlining a trip down town. All around her was the gleam of silver, trophies won by her and the many' won by her husband. Her impertinent min iature French poodle begged for attention, its tiny paws grey against the honey of her skirt. LIKED her, this daring, yet unassuming modern woman. I liked her very much and I hope to see her again. The Family Friend Housekeeping Advict For Working Wifa Questioji I am Irantie with trying to keep house for my hus band and holding down a job at the same time. The doctor has told me that I must do less, or quit work. We need the money. How con I do less? Mas. M.G., Cincinnati, Ohio. Answer No one needs to tell you how rough this double life can be; even your doctor Knows it. Getting through an overcrowded schedule can be done but It requires some plan and Tree Lighting Pointers Told Outdoor lighting of Christmas decorations lengthens their en joyment through the evening hours, but before you position a single spotlight, check your electrical equipment. Outdoor wiring must have waterproof connections and durable bulbs. For floodlights, 130-watt PAR-38 bulbs are the easiest to use. For strings, choose C-9V6 or small C-lVi bulbs. Be sure all electrical equip ment has the UL seal for safety. If you reuse old lights, first check for any broken sockets, frayed wires or loose connec tions.
