Alaskan Hospitality Center Here When visitors from the smallfer states arrive in Fairbanks this summer they • will learn first hand the meaning of'"northern hospitality." • •• Members of the-Kittie Hensley Welcome Center are working on plans to renovate the Hensley cabin at the Centennial site so that it will look like an early day Alaskan home. The furnishings will be typical of the gold mining days. Hospitality volunteers willgreetvis- itors and give them information about women's organizations in the ciiy. The cabin will provide a place where the people at the Centennial can rest and relax. At the cabin only authentic Alaskan products will be sold. The Kittie Hensley committee met this week to set a timetable of activities to have the cabin ready for the .May opening of the site. Mrs. Isabelle Richards, exec• utive director, said that there will be a training program for the volunteers who will greet visitors at the cabin. All women interested in giving a day or two of their time should contact Mrs. Richards. There are 15 local organizations working together on the project including: Zonta, Fairbanks Woman's Club, Hamilton Acres Woman's Club, Library Association, PEO Chapter B, College Woman's Club, Weaver's Guild, Rebekah, Pioneer Auxiliary No. 8, Soroptimists, Emblem Club, Delta Kappa Gamma, Fairbanks Home Economics Association, Homemakers Council and PEO Chapter F. The next committee meeting is Feb. 15 at the home of Mrs. Lydia Fohn-Hansen. Home Furnishing Bridal Market The focal point of the winter home furnishings market in Dallas is aimed at newlyweds and the home fashions they live with — or would like to live with. Aids for the retailer, to help him better understand and serve the vast so-called "bridal" market, are being of-. fered during this week-long semi-annual market at the Dallas Market Center. The center of attraction in the Trade Mart courtyard all week will be the "house" that Modern Bride, Lorene Allison Associates and theDallas Market Center built as visual-evidence of the kind of furnishings many newlyweds prefer. The featured rooms are all made up of popular-price furniture. Colors are black and white and strong, and styling is colonial and contemporary. The "Kroehler" room features that manufacturer's "in group" — a modern package for the young marrieds. HOME BUSINESS — With a little bit of money and a lot of imagination Mrs. Mary Layne, 517 Eighth Ave., has turned her living room into a shop where she sells special imports such as knit suits from Italy and beaded sweaters from-Hong Kong. (News-Miner Staff Photo) Mrs. Layne Earns Money At Home With Open Shop (EDITOR'S NOTE: This story is the first in a series about Fairbanks women who have businesses in their home. These ladies help add to the family income and can still be home with their children.) By JO ANNE WOLD Mary Layne doesn't go travel- ing to Hong Kong, Trinidad, Paris, Amsterdam andRomelike some people. But she does the next best thing. She orders little treasures from all over the world and sells them at her import shop in her home at 517 Eighth Ave. Mary openedfor business about two- years ago and has the ex- Who Is the Real Anastasia? Study Reveals Effects Of Working Mothers on Family Child and family-life experts have completed a study of working mothers and their children. Some persons believe the increasing number of wives and mothers working outside the home causes problem children, divorce, and other social difficulties. But according to one study, children whose mothers work perform as well at school as those children whose mothers do not work. These childr'en had no morephy- *ical symptoms from emotional distress than children whose mq- thers remained at home. These children had no more physical symptoms from emotional distress than children whose mothers remained at home. In other instances adolescents whose mothers worked were round to be better adjusted socially than those whose mothers i were full-time homemakers. Dr. Mary Kievit, family living consultant at Rutgers University, says most research findings indicate that a mother's working outside is generally not the cause of problems. Other conditions in the family may have more influence, such as the age and number of children, the availability of care for children, and acceptance or rejection of employment by family members. According to Dr. Kievit, such findings emphasize the need for a family to carefully assess its particular situation when deciding whether the mother should take an outside job. SCHOLARSHIPS — Miss Katie Egowa, left, and Miss Lani Roberts, standing, both University of Alaska students, discuss their college plans with Mrs. Duncan Plowman, president of the College Woman's Club. Miss Roberts was presented with a $300 scholarship from the College Woman's Club and Miss Egowa received $100. Katie will do her practice teaching in Anchorage this semester. Miss Roberts is a sophomore majoring in music education. (News-Miner Staff Photo) It all began on a cold February day in 1920. A young woman . who had attempted suicide was rescued from a canal in the city of Berlin. The story that woman told her rescuers that day triggered a controversy that remains unsettled to this day. The woman said that she was Russian. She said that two years earlier — on July 17, 1913, to be precise — Bolshevik revolutionaries in Moscow who had overthrown Czar Nicholas II had attempted to murder the entire Russian imperial family. The Bolsheviks — according to her story—had succeeded in doing away with the czar, his wife, his son and three of his daughters. But, she added, the czar's youngest daughter, with the aid of persons loyal to the imperial family, had managed to survive the massacre and escape. That. woman claimed to be the czar's daughter—Grand Duchess Anastasia. It was the way she told her story — the minute details she included — that convinced many that she was indeed Anastasia. But she failed to convince everyone and soon she was labeled' a ., fraud. Among those who refuted the woman's story was Princess Barbara, the German Duchess of Mecklenberg and a grand niece of the last czarina of Russia. She was to come into the forefront of the controversy in the early 1930's when a German court ruled that she was heiress to the property of the Russian imperial family. In 1933 the woman who claimed to be Anastasia went to court to appeal. She was trying to be named the rightful heiress of the 'imperial family. Aiding her, in this — the first of many such legal battles she was to have through the years, was the German Prince Friedrich Ernst who, by the way, is the uncle of Princess Barbara. The war and its aftermath in Germany delayed a decision on the case. And it was not until 1957 that a German court ruled against the woman who claimed to be Anastasia and who was now known as Mrs. Anna Anderson. With Prince Friedrich, who calls her "your imperial majesty," still helping her, Mrs. Anderson appealed to a higher German court. This too ended in defeat in 1961. Still determined, Mrs. Anderson and Prince .Friedrich went to a still higher court —the superior court of Hamburg, which is scheduled to deliver a verdict on this latest appeal next Tuesday. However, a decision could be postponed by a proposal that more testimony be heard. Rumors have it that the reason for this rather involved legal entanglement is that a czarist fortune is deposited with the Bank of England. The winner in the case —Princess Barbara or Mrs. Anderson — would be entitled to any such fortune which may exist. However, both the woman who says she's Anastasia and Princess Barbara have discounted the rumors and say they doubt that a fortune exists. As Mrs. Anderson's lawyer put it: "For her, principles are foremost." The center of attraction in the controversy will not be on hand in Hamburg on Tuesday to hear any verdict the German superior court may hand down. Throughout the current litigation Mrs. Anderson has remained in seclusion in her Black Forest home. At age 66, she is said to be in relatively good health after ailing for many years. Her living expenses and court fees are covered by the royalties she receives from a book she wrote and two 'movies based on her story, as well as by contributions from supporters. Whichever way that Hamburg court decides, next Tuesday whether in favor of Mrs. Anderson or against her, theAnastasia story will be far from ended. This mystery which has intrigued the public and split European royalty for over 46 years, is likely to continue to do so for some years to come. For the losing party is expected to make a final appeal to the West German supreme court. Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Friday, January 20, 1967—5 Button, Button, Who's Got The Winter Carnival Button?

On Monday evening the three PEO Sisterhood chapters held a joint meeting and presented their annual Founder's Day program. The unusual presentation was given by Mrs. Joseph Gallagher, Mrs. John Hessin, Miss Agnes Sunnell, and Mrs. Richard Scott who were dressed in costumes of the last century. Accompanying the script reading was background music of the period. Ladies met in the new Community Center of the FirstPres- byterian Church. Carol Channi Kissed by LBJ ing Capsule Book Review Readers who enjoy Agnes SIign Turnbull books— and those who are reading one of her stories for the first time— will, enjoy "The Wedding Bargain" (published by Houghton Mifflin Company. S4.95). It's a warm, charming story, with characters that seem very real, and a plot which weaves its own spell. elusive line of Luigi Boffi knits from Italy, beaded blouses and sweaters from Hong Kong, jewelry from Holland and handmade slippers from India. One three-piece suitfrom Italy is of a gold thread material that is simply elegant. The material is the richest gold color I have ever seen and the material is soft, not stiff. In most cases Mary orders directly from the manufacturer in the foreign country. She can place orders directly to Hong Kong for specially made items such as beaded evening dresses and beaded shoes and purses. Mrs. Layne's husband, Shields, handles orders for men's suits in Hong Kong. HUSBAND'S IDEA "The idea for the shop was Shields'," Mary said. But once they started getting catalogs and the packages arrived from overseas, Mary became more and more interested. You can see her touch everywhere in the shop — she has a sense of beauty in fabrics, colors, details. The merchandise is on display- in the Laynes' living room. There are many, many boxes filled with beautiful knit suits from Italy in a rainbow of colors. Tucked here and there on little shelves and in cupboards are other import items such as candied roses from Paris, curry and chutney from India, grape leaves from Greece, and a coffee, sugar and butter blend that comes from Trinidad in the West Indies. HIGH HOPES "We have lots of high hopes for our shop," Mary said "but right now we are doing the best we. can with what we have." In addition to the import shop, Mary does sewing and alterations to help supplementthe family income. Mrs. Layne teaches a Camp Fire Girl troop and when she has any spare time she likes to bake apple pies. Mary and her husband have lived in Fairbanks 11 years. They have two daughters. By FRANCES LEWINE WASHINGTON (AP) - Carol Channing got a kiss from President Johnson, her show "Hello Dolly" got a birthday cake and the White House social season got off to a rollicking start Tuesday night. There were cheers and hurrahs from the audience for a 30- minute performance of excerpts from the hit musical which provided Johnson with his 1964 campaign song "Hello Lyndon." There were so many raves that Miss Channing told the President "Isn't it lovely. You don't have any critics here." Good News: Eat Potato Every j Day for Vitamins Contrary to the opinion many people have about the potato, it isn't the potato, but what you put on it that makes it fattening. Potatoes are high in iron, "B" ' vitamins and vitamin "C", and many nutritionists say you should have one serving of them every day. To preserve their food value you should bake, boil or steam them in their jackets. The skin will come off easily to let you serve them any way you like. You should prepare potatoes just before mealtime, cook them covered in a small amount of boiling water, just until they are done, .and serve them immediately. Do not soak potatoes beforeyou cook them. Don't cook them in too much water, either, or overcook them or let them stand a long time before they are eaten. All of these things decrease their food value. For today's dinner menu you might serve baked potatoes, baked veal loaf, stewed tomatoes and a salad of mixed greens. For dessert, have apricot pie or apricot ship. Here's a potato-storing tip: keep potatoes in a cool, dark place with high humidity—an unheated basement or a small room insulated from heat would be the best type of place. Seasoning Mixture You can save time in seasoning food, and do it more satisfactorily too, by preparing a mixture of six parts salt and one part pepper, which can be kept on hand in a special shaker. Many other such cooking shortcuts and hints are contained in my new paper- bavk household manual. "We don't huh?", the President replied. "Operation Big Daddy," Miss Channing called it, as she brought a touring tro'up of 25 to give the President his first chance to see the long-running musical. The cast played the White House between Stops at Greensboro, N.C., and Dayton, Ohio where it is due today. . The show provided the after dinner entertainment at a black tie dinner the Johnsons gave in honor of Vice President Hubert H, Humphrey, Chief Justice Earl Warren and House Speaker John W. McCormack. As the show came to a close, Miss Channing, in her red-sequined and bejeweled satin gown with a huge red feathered hat on her tangerine-colored hair, waved and blew kisses to the 190 guests, including New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller and theatrical personalities Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, Joan Crawford, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. t and Marge and Gower Champion. Then the White House staff wheeled up a six-tiered rose decorated cake with four candles to mark the start of the show's fourth year. The off-stage show stopper was the President dancing with Miss Channing to the tune of "Hello Dolly." He ducked under the star's huge feathered hat to dance check-to-cheek with her. Their performance — it was the President's one and only dance — swept the others to the sidelines to watch. HOBBIES FOR WINTER FUN & ENTERTAINMENT!
