Only one major index group — transportation — has declined in the past year. That drop was due largely to lower prices for autos !#*ru ¥&s* By POLLY O'CONNELI, Mrs. Richard L. Snyder com bines a job and homemaking will time to entertain occasionally. She finds horseradish meat balls served with a hot marmal adc-soy dip n favorite dish for a small group. Her recipe for Scotch shortbread is timely a the delicious cookies may be de corated with holly leaves am other Christmas designs. Mrs. Snyder is an employee o! the legal department of Dow Chemical Company. Her husban is in production control at the same company. They have two sons, Rick, 15, and Tim, five years-old. Mrs. Bertha Parker, Mrs. Snyder's mother, lives with the family in a spacious home at 928 Magnolia In Lake Jackson. The lovely Christmas decorations thai adorn the home were creations ol Mrs. Snyder in past years. Although she has taken part in several fields of art, she has post poned her interests in that direction until her sons are grown Her only projects at present are for causes such as tho reccn First Methodist Holiday Homes tour when she made decorations for the parsonage. Mrs. Snyder (Gerry) taught ceramics at one time, and used to take an active part in various clubs and civic organizat ions. She now declines such time-consuming endeavors as she keeps her nights free for her family. Vacations are a family affair. During the past summer the Sny- dcrs took a trip to the Santa Fe area of New Mexico; exploring abandoned gold mines, taking their station. wagon up trails meant for Jeeps, and living in a cabin. Surveying the tastefully decorated family room of her home, Gerry says, "I believe the boys would trade this house for a log cabin any day!" As for her sons, they are already agitating for a return trip to New Mexico next summer. For holiday entertaining, a green net Christmas tree is a favorite centerpiece with the Snyders. Another unique touch i s the Santa' with his pack, placed on the logs of the family room fireplace. Although the Snyders usually confine their entertaining to small groups, they were hosts for a buffet dinner for choir members o! Lake Jackson First Methodist Church where Richard (Dick) is choir president. Among the dishes Gerry pre pared for the event was the recipe that follows. 1IOKSEIIAD1SH MEATBALLS % cup water 2 egg yolks or 1 whole egg V* cup packaged bread crumbs 2 tablespoons prepared horse. radish 1 cup \vat4r chestnuts, finely chopped ' , 1 pound chuck, ground Preheat oven to 3!iO -; degrees.
