Men who love to mess around in the kitchen are not usually the meat, bread and potato type cook. They RO all out for exotic dishe? and dirtying \ip every poV, pan and paddle in their path . They take it seriously and want everybody out of their way. They'll pay $10 for cook books and then change up the recipe so the author himself wouldn't recognize it. They'll go to faraway places to find an herb that Rives a dish that certain flavor oomph which classes them in the gourmet bracket. Cooking, as painting, is nn art. An amateur's skill has first got to be challenged and when you can begin to substitute a seasoning that lies heavy on your stomach for one that practically "lulls you to sleep, then you have ceased lo be an amateur and have mastered the cooking art. No recipe Is so sacred that it can't be altered or improved upon because taste Is a personal thing and the author of a $10 cook book can make mistakes. Sturdy main dishes are n must on a man's menu, whether he's pUnning R stag dinner or his wife's canasta luncheon club and it was throughout the Oh's and Ah'i of the Town nnd Country CanasL* Club that I found out Guy Driver Is the Chef behind those out-of-thla-world dishes his wife, "Toadies," serves her club. Visits the Best Guy is a frequent visitor to An- tolne'a and Arnnuld'R In New Orleans and goes behind the censes in their kitchen, where angels fear to tread, but not Guy. When he wants to find out the ingredients and technique in a certain dish, he maneuvers around until he geta behind those swinging doors and comes out waving the recipe In mid-air. He brings it home, takes a little of this out of It and adds a little of that until he has perfected it, acordin gto hi.i way of thinking, which i« definitely an improvement. Duncan Hines has nothing on Osceola's Guy Driver when it comes to patronizing only the best eating places, not that Guy is a big cater, he couldn't be and be the size that he is, but when Guy took up the cooking hobby, he >jKnt all but for the unusual. His favorites are French dishes.

The Driver clan can thank J. D. largest family of klnfolks in Mississippi County. You can walk one block in Osceola and will meet a Driver. J. D. Driver's parents were Abram and Sallie (DeMosa) Driver, this county's early settlers, coming here In 1834. Figure In History From that year to the present Guy Driver . . . Splitting lobster (alls In an art , . . He will tell you quickly he does-' n't like conglomerations and the dishes he serves must hnvn un eye appeal. A famous eating place would never serve their customer a dish that wasn't appealing to the eye. "A simple dish Is glorified by adding a sprig of parsley or a bright red cherry," Guy said. "It's hard tor a fellow to «at something for the first time but If it's dressed up in the familiar sprig of parsley, he beiilns to feel right iit home with what he is about to encounter." Guy likes brandies nnd liquers for flavoring certain dishes but added that they must be used sparingly or else your euliimry masterpiece turns into n bar room special.

We had to have aome grown person light our little firecrackers, Ihe kind that sold tor a nickel a package, each connected to a string or fuse. You know the kind I mean. They were considered dangerous and were known to put out eyes. And Roman candles have a habit of backfiring and leaving burned scars. There are no fool-proof fireworks.
