Coffee house proprietors real ized that coffee drinking was a serious business, and therefore insisted that the green coffee beans were roasted and ground fresh daily. Proprietors also well knew their clientele and fixed the brews to suit the individual tastes. The customers had many preferences, from small cups to large ones or Russian-style, in a glass. Cof fee was served .with varying, amounts of milk, with whipped1 cream, and also black. Customers called for their coffee by color indicating "a white one" a "brown one," "black", "white with whipped cream" or "black with whipped cream." The latter is still known in the United States as "Viennese Coffee." Summer or Winter the cof fee houses were filled with and sea green cement on steel mesh, encrusted with small, polished stones and pebbles that came from the riverbed of the Hudson River, near Peekskill. For 20 years, Epifanio Nicosia has been making these original ornaments and examples of his work are found In elaborate gardens of estates on Long Island as well as up-State. In an adjoining yard, at the corner of Hubbard St. and Avenue Y. the first three ornaments Mr. Nicosia made 20 years ago are standing, durable as ever. These are a five-foot windmill, an Oriental pagoda and a garden vase on a pedestal. The vase was his first creation. Mr. Nicosia said that the idea for the vase studded with "lucky" stones and colored stones came to him in a dream. He had been a boss bricklayer and was injured on the construction of a large building. While recuperating at home ha "dreamed" about making thel Margaret Mara mmmmmmmm flower vase. Thus, Mr. Nicosia started on his business venture which has supported him and his family for the past two decades. Some of his pieces have sold for $1,000. Probably the handsomest pieces are the garden table and a set of five curved benches. men sipping afternoon coffeejThe pedestal table is five feet in before wending their way diameter, the ton polished like homeward for the evening meal.

DAVIS Society Editor Off to an early start on Summer parties were the teen-agers on the North Shore of Long Island. Mr. and Mrs. Frederick E. Rieger of 61 Pierrepont St., who are at their Summer home in Belle Terre, Port Jefferson for the season entertained recently at a' buffet supper in their garden. The event was in honor of the 16th birthday of their eldest son, Frederick E. Rieger Jr. It also was the first time that the teen-age "crowd" used the new sitting room the Riegers had decorated for their three boys, Fred, Tom and Chris. The ceiling of the room is of straw and was ordered by Mrs. Rieger and young Fred when they were In Haiti last Winter. The furniture was also .'bought in Haiti and the rug was made in Puerto Rico. The decorations and ornaments that Fred picked up on this trip are also used to adorn the room. Elinor Goldston, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Iago Goldston of Orange St. has been their house guest. Also visiting Mrs. Rieger was her mother, Mrs. Thomas O. Muller and Mrs. Anton Wunnen-berg. Also having opened their Summer homes in Belle Terre are Mr. and Mrs. J. Read Smith, 1 Mr. and Mrs. Anthony J. McAllister, Mr. and Mrs. James P. McAllister, Mr. and Mrs. Adrian Etzel, Mr. and Mrs. John W. Knapp and Mr. nd Mrs. Emile Heymann and their families.

It seems 1 just couldn't get organized; but since the problem has come into the open I have (through necessity) found a way to keep the house nice and the dishes clean. We have agreed to try to save our marriage hpcause of the children; but as Clyde works 11 to 1! hours daily during the week, I can't ask him to do my work, too.

C I don't believe you are as much to blame for the rift as you think, or as Clyde insists. Rather I infer that the sad state 'of affairs is at least as much his fault as yours. It is my Impression that your slack performance in the role of household slavery, chained to a child tending routine, has been dup to lack of incentive to make a good showing which means, in other words, that Clyde has been neglecting you and the children! Your references to his long hours of work, plus the fact that you've hardly been off the premises for years, indicate that hp is taking little interest in family life during the time of greatest tedium namely, when children are small. Should Re Helpmate You cannot win him hack without his ro- oeration; find if he wishes to save the marriage for the children's sake, he's certainly got to work cordially with you to repair mistakes. This is the hpst antidote to his assumption of heavy grievance a self-justifying excuse for negligence, in my opinion. In all probability, his sudden complaints against you are a byproduct of recent infatuation with somebody else a woman co-worker, or crony acquirer! in the envi'-ors where he loafs after hours, when unfairly avoiding the stresses of home life.
