Oneonto Star Mon., Nov. 11, 1957 Man's Recipe ]Banana Muffins TEXAS STLYE -- Dress manufacturer Justin McCarty of Dallas okays a coordinated sweater and skirt combining bulky knit with plaid wool In college colors cornel and red. DALLAS DRAMA -- Designer Jody Van Amburgh who works for Ike and Julie Clark, checks the white linen colar of a slim dark cotton dress with red velvet ascot, for fall wear. Free and Easy Look Is a /\/\ ar y HaWOfth's Mai Natural forTexas Designers DALLAS IB -- That free-and- easy look of fall fashions all over the world is right up the cold-plated alley of Texas designers, teg noted for the casual ease of their styles. Though most people think of oil wells when they think of Texas, the young and vigorous fashion Industry grow! as big as most other things In the Lone Star State, with buyers from all over the country converging regularly on the Dallas market for that particular kind of breezy fashions that Texas does best. Among veterans of the Texas fashion market are manufacturers Justin McCarty and Ike dark. Both McCarty and Clark ·re typically Texan, in both fashion preferences and general outlook on life. They rum out clothes mat the active, fun-loving women of their own state like to wear, and somehow these seem to be the kind of things that appeal to women hi similar tastei from Maine to California. "Women want to be comfortable in their clothes and they want to look smart -- Just a Etep ahead of the neighbors," says tall, wtute-haired McCarty. "When we keep this In mind, we can't pi wrong. "This fall all kinds of new fabrics are Important -- blends of silk and cotton, dacron, orlon, nylon and all the rest -- but they have to feel good and look beautiful. Suit Jackets are shorter and looser, skirts give the girls room to walk, and the old standbys of shirt dresses, classic suits and three-piece costumes are still the favorites of many women who know wtat's wtat in fashion." Stocky, dark, mustached Ike dark, who likes to wear ten- gallon hats, has been turning out Texas fashions for many years, and recently has added a junior line, which he has named after his daughter. Julie. He likes the easy, middy-and- skirt look of the 1930s this fall, with unaccented waistline and relaxed air, and he chooses vivid colon and new. light-weight fabrics to lend his own special Texas touch. There are plenty of discreet prays and browns among his suit collection, but when he comes to the junior "Julie" dreses, Clark lets color run rirrt. With an rye toward the campus, he makes "rush week" drrsrs. "date" dresses a-id versatile spectator and clasroom outfits. Designer for Clark's junior line Is another Texan, Jody Van Amburs. while the regular miss- rs 1 clothes are designed by Frcn- Mary Sparaco (Elftee Photo) Miss Sparaco Is Engaged Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Sparacn.

Right Sox Important Man's Item Two places where a well- timed sock is Important are the squared ring and the sartorial circle. Prizefight fans, from the Marquis of Queensberry to Floyd Patterson, could give you an authoritative report on the sock that counts in the squared ring. For advice on the socks that count In the better sartorial circles, the American Institute of Men 1 ! and Boys' Wear hai come up with some expert advice. You can't go wrong on the timing of your locks, lays the institute. If you break out in some of the new locks de-r signed for Fall and Winter of 1957 right now. But In making your selections, keep In mind that three key factors are Involved: Color, design and the type of yarn. Color runt riot In tports socks thii season. Big. bold a r g y I e diamonds, splashy stripei and the new ipllt patterns with different colors fore and aft are among eye- catching socks for country and sports occasions. In bulky knits, they are perfectly in tune with the new bulky knit sweaters that are more evident this season than ever. You can even find tocki and sweater! In matched leti. Quite naturally, tock! for business and dress-up wear strike a more conservative note, but restraint doesn't mean drabness. Everyday io c k t should properly blend, In a quiet way, with the whole ensemble. Colors generally should run as dark or darker than the mils that go with them --never lighter. Pattern!, too, should be neat for business wear. There are hundreds of different minlaturci to choose from-or you can safely go for lolid colors In ribbed knits. Incidentally, there'i a quiet trend toward argylci for business wear, too--not the loud sports variety, of course, but colorful and trim with their single panel on a subdued color background. Conservativism ii the rule when it come! to dress-up affairi. To be on the safe tide, match your formal evening attire with the most formal of all men'i hose-black silk or nylon in full length styles, either self-supporting or garter-hung. As for colon here, midnight blue is fine, especially with a mldnlftht blue fnrmal suit, but nothing lighter. Another look at leisure socks indicates some brand- new yarn blends that are sure to be widely seen and worn thii season--for Instance, alpaca. Ordinarily used in sweaters, alpaca is now being combined with wool or itretch nylon in some of the handsomest hose of the year. Many more blends are in evidence, as are rugged- looking S h e t l a n d types- Brushed cottons with a "wool" look are campus favorites. Here are a few hosiery tips for the notebook: Key your sock colon to either lull nr tie. Never wear holf-lengthi with formal outfits. If you wear s n u c - f i t t l n c bulky k n i t socki w i t h loaferi or illp-rm ihnrj. you'll never have tocki illrtlng down under your heel*. And If It mmei to a choice between your hn«e ttajrlns up and looking nest or illdlnK rinwn and giving the reverie I m p r r n l n n , buy a pair nf gurteri. Remember, ctreiilng right meant chtcktnt your appm- snce from bead to to*. Dear Mary Haworth: I am J2 and have been married three years. My husband. 23-call him Bob--has been all I ever would want in a man. However, five months ago a mutual friend told me that he had seen Bob with a girl of considerable wealth in our community, at luncheon dates, movies and the theater. At first I could hardly believe it; until one day I saw them together when I was shopping In town. Bob seems very proud of this association and certainly doesn't try to hide it. Two weeks ago he came to me and asked for a divorce. Since we have no children he feels there should be no problem about a settlement. OVERWHELMED I love my husband and don't want a divorce; but as the girl Is beautiful, wealthy and younger than Bob, I feel that I can't put up a good fight. I am fo overwhelmed that I can't make up my mind whether to let him go, or try to induce him to break off this relationship. t am completely bewildered, unable to think Intelligently. Do you think It would be wise, as I am still young, to try to forget him and start over again? My family favors this course. They've always got along well with Boh. but haven't held him In very high esteem. Bob Is lots of fun and always cheerful, and I had supposed always-contented. I would like to try to win him back, if I thought there was a chance; otherwise I suppose I should just let him go. What do you think my chances areT-D. G. WIFE IN STRONG POSITION Dear D. G.: Inasmuch as you are Bob's wife, and you love him. and he is all that you ever would want in a spouw. I certainly think you are in a position to operate from strength, in resisting the other woman's efforts to steal him. You have a very limited, superficial concept of the qualities that constitute a real relationship between man and wife, when you imagine that the girl's youth. wealth and beauty eclipse anything that you may have to offer. In the way nf personal merit and feminine appeal. Indeed, your sense of values Is very tinsel, If you assume slck-heartedly. that the girl lurpasses you, automatically, on the score of lovability, because ihe hai wealth and youth and beauty. These at- Joyce Edna Payne To Be Bride In July Mr. and Mn. Georte Payne, 37 Monroe Avenue, have announced the engagement of their daughter, Joyce Edna, to Harold Richard Anderson, ton nf Mr. and Mrt. Basil Anderson, 10 Telford Avenue. Miss Joyce Payne graduated from Oneonta Hitn School and li at present a senior at Gordon College In Beverly Farms, Ma«s. Mr. Anderson graduated from Oneonta High School, New York School nf Retailing, and received a bachelor degree In Dullness Administration from Syracuse Unlver- illy.

A July wedding It planned. tributes, though pleasing in themselves, are qualities for which she can't claim any credit, really. They are incidentals or acci'denti of life, when possessed by untried youth. Dearness Vs. Stranieness Only when wealth Is self- created, begot as a return on one's personal usefulness or contributiveness to society; and only when beauty is a mature flowering, a by-product of living loveliness of character; and only when youth Is (as some poet hai said) "a quality of mind," a buoyant imperishable freshness of spirit--only then do these qualities have soul-deep significance; testifying to the Innate dearness, the rarity, of the person endowed with them. What you and Bob thould realize is that you are you-and there never will be another you. Just as there never will be another person Identical with him. And the fact that he chose you to be hii wile, when he was quite old enough to know his mind-and that you two married for love, I take It--Is profoundly indicative that you are affinities, in the depths of your respective needs and longings. As for what the other girl means to Bob--if he were a student of Scriptures, specifically of Proverbs, he would better understand, and would recognize the slippery path he li taking. The author (or authors) of Proverbi neatly epitomize! the temptren in terms of her chief attraction, namely, her "itrangeness." The fact that she is new, a novelty, a change from the familiar. I'roverbt Speak On This Subject In counselling men to latch on to wisdom as the principal thing In making life worthwhile. Proverbs reminds that wisdom and understanding keep a man "from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words"--who "with her much fair speech" and "the flattery of her lips" enslaves the foolish man. He goeth after her straightway, as an ox to slaughter, or a fool to the correction of the stocks--says the ancient. Proverbs tells unwary males: "Let not thine heart decline to her ways; go not astray in her paths . . . her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of (spiritual) death." So, I think you're entitled to Hand on the sacred ground of marriage, in doing your utmost, lovingly, to save your man from that.--M.H. L. Van DeBoe Do you remember the heavyweight iron gem pan« that Grandmother used when she made her wonderful hot-hearted, crisp crusted graham, bran or commeal gems? Wonder what'i the essential difference betwem a gem and a muffin. I'll remember to ask Horace Winkel- whiffer. my friend and gardening rival over on Woodpecker Ridge in Hilltown. Horace ii a splendid citizen, and he is ore of those persons who always knows the answer to everything. Occasionally it does get a bit tiring. I'm a muffin man. I like muffins hot from the oven when fresh baked, and I especially like them hot and crisp for breakfast, reheated in the oven. I am planning to do quite a bit with various flavored muffins In the months ahead. If you enjoy banana flavor, I hope you will try this. Use one and a half tablespoons butter or margarine, three tablespoons white sugar, two tablespoons brown sugar, one banana, one egg beaten, one cup Dour, one teaspoon baking powder, one fourth teaspoon soda, one eighth teaspoon salt, three tablespoons milk. Cream butter and sugars, add banana sliced paper thin, and cream again. Add egg and mix all. Sift the flour, baking powder, soda and salt together. Add alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with flour. Rake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, or until done. One average size banana gives a flavor I like, but you may prefer either more or less of the fruit flavor.
