If y&i are holding the catriera, where are you? BY ROLF ULVESTAM (Subbing for Boyle) STOCKHOLM (AP) - Sweden has two first-class tourist traps: the blondes and the smorgasbord. The girls may upset your heart and the smorgasbord your stomach. If you have not grown up with raw herring, pickled pig's feet, smoked reindeer and highly potent braennvin perhaps you better leave smorgasbord out at least. If you have a well-lined stomach and purse this is the best time of the year to have a go at it. As the days grow darker and the cold bites his skin, the Swede tends to seek comfort atthe smorgasbord. In restaurants and inns all over the country the Swedes are studying what comes to be known as the Christmas table. Other countries have counterparts to the smorgasboard — Russia's "zakuski," France's "hors d'oeuvres varies," Denmark's "kolde bord" — but none of these can match the Swedish speciality. The smorgasbord traces its origin to the aquavit buffet which was served in the 18th century as an introduction to a festive meal. It was set on a separate table and taken standing before the guests were seated for the meal proper. Today's genuine smorgasbord consists of an iced section,' a cold section and a hot section. You start off with the "iced realm" where the herring is sovereign. Here you'll find raw herring, salt herring, Baltic herring, curred pickled herring, fillets with sour cream, etc. Then you proceed to smoked or boiled salmon and eel, anchovies, sardines, shrimps and a few colorful egg dishes. Next come meat dishes like boiled ham, liver paste, sliced beef, pickled pig's feet, roasted spareribs. Small warm dishes then loom on the horizon — meat balls, fried Vienna sausages, omlets. If you still feel like it you may round off with a sweet or some fruit salad, cheese and coffee. The prevailing theory is to take aquavit with herring and boiled potatoes at the beginning of the meal. You drink it straight in a grand gulp after uttering the magic word skaal—a toast to good health. Swedes have a way of sorting out smorgasbord beginners from smorgasbord veterans. A trainee rushes to the table and : happily overloads his plate. A veteran pays several visits and puts only a few carefully selected delicacies on his plate each time. Critics campaigning for healthier eating habits contend that smorgasbord is a dying institution in the Swedish culinary world. Swedish travelers pick up new food habits. A growing number of immigrants bring their own cuisines. Traditionalists respond that the smor- the small society gasbord is flourishing as ever. All restaurants and hotels worthy of their names serve smorgasbord every Sunday all year. And people flock around it as they have done for 200 years. Prices vary, but you can iget an average table for less than $4 at most places. Add to that the price of a couple of aquavits and some beer, and a taxi ride home, and you end up somewhere between $10 and $20. by Brickman HOW WoiJLP YoU Lll^To W(ZiT& ^AteTWlN^ THAT'LL LAST Ffcrfevfej?? ^ I PIP.

Tips for Parents: After the teen-ager has been driving the family car, be sure to adjust the rear-view mirror, change the radio station and head for the nearest filling station. "Mike's Mike," Breda News. It would seem like a good idea to take a moratorium from our every day living at least every season, to escape the worries and upsets of the world we live in. Then we could thoroughly enjoy every season — the leaves in the fall, the soft, white snow of winter, the fresh green of spring, and the warmth andexpansiveness of summer. This would make our minds restful. "Reflections in the Mirror," Clear Lake Mirror - Reporter. RIP KIRBY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Tuesday, Dec. 28, the 362nd day of 1971.
