Eighteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Former White House Chef Gives Inside Story on Menus NEW YORK (UP) — The man who until .six months ago was chief cook at the White House says President Eisenhower never became ill from any of his dishes. But he said one of his beef stews j once upset the First Lady. Czech-born Francois Rysavy, a veteran of 30 years in hotel and private kitchens here and abroad, for 2'c years supervised the preparation of all White House meals. He retired in June of this year— as it happened, just a few days before President Eisenhower had a headlined run-in with blueberry pie. The upset caused a "sympathy pain" on Wall Street and the stock market dropped sharply. "I was vastly relieved that I was not the chef," said Rysavy, in a book, "White House Chef," published today. "I can safely say," he added, "that the President had never suffered a stomach reversal on my account." He hurriedly pointed out that the 3isenhower ileitis attack "happened after a dinner at a Washington hotel." • Rysavy is chock full of information on li.kes and dislikes of the first family. He discovered, the hard way, that Mamie is anti- onion. President Eisenhower's knack with a beef stew ir pretty well publicized, so the chef decided one evening to serve the Hungarian version, goulash. Plenty of onions, of course. Next day, he said, the head butler showed up at the kitchen door to comment: "You must have used onions in the stew last, night ... the First Lady had trouble sleeping." "i served stew many times again," said Rysavy, "but never with onions." The chef refers to the President as a steak man ("it is his favorite meat"), and said "like many another hunband, he is not salad crazy." But Mrs. Ike is a salad fancier and often takes a fruit and cottage cheese combination for lunch. She has a "passion" for any food •with mint flavor. The chef said the family prefers simple American type fare, except on state occasions when the menu usually takes on a continental flavor. 26 at 6 p.m. at the home of Mrs. Glen Ward. .Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Matthews of Balna Park, 'California, were nests last week of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Jones of Logansport and Mrs. Clara Braly, Jeanne Marie Quinn was honored on her eighth birthday at a party at her home recently with entertaining rooms decorated, in a pink and blue motif, featuring large balloons suspended 'from the ceiling.
