!About People, Places Almonds Give Fish New--Angle! |'''4 IIPM^ Mrs. Homer Worden, left, arid her cousin from Germany, Miss Christine Franck. (Register-Mail photo by Dale Humphrey.) When Miss Christine Franck, Zweibrucken, Germany, applied for a passport and visa) to visit relatives in the United States, the government official wanted to know how long she would be staying. When she replied six months, he said no one could have that many relatives, and only made her visa good for two months. Well, Miss Franck has proved him wrong. She has been here since March, and in May had to extend the visa, since there were many relatives yet to visit. She arrived in Galesburg Friday to visit her cousin, Mrs. Homer Worden, and Mr. Worden, 364 Day St. Miss Franck was the guest of honor at a dinner Sunday at the country hoime of Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Pence, Mrs. Warden's brother. Guests were present from Westminister, Calif., Burlington, Iowa, and Ship- penberg, Penn. After her flight over from Germany on a 747, Missi Franck plans to go back via ship — all those souvenirs she has bought just won't fit in one suitcase. The first thing she purchased was authentic, genuine American blue jeans ~ something she has always wanted and which aren't available in Germany. She also loves the Indian turquoise' jewelry set in either silver or copper which she bought near Salt Lake City. In Zweibrucken, Miss Franck was a pediatrician's assistant — which involved taking x-rays, doing lab work, and even changing a diaper when the occasion called for it. She studied English for six years in school — and is thrilled to be able to practice it for her first visit to America. Prefers American Cooking • Many of her relatives, afraid! that she was homesick, have 1 taken her to German restaurants, but she much prefers the American style of cooking, especially buffets and smorgasbords. What Miss Franck hasn't found too enjoyable is the weather —• she isn't used to our sultry Midwestern summers. Everyone in Germany wants a suntan, she said, but has to vacation in Spain or Italy for one. So, she hopes to acquire a gorgeous tan while she is here, even if the heat is unbearable. GALESBURG, ILL., WED., JUNE 20, 1973 Armed Forces Service Club Meets Monday Mrs. Everett Rees presided when the Armed Forces Service Club met Monday evening at the Eagles Clubroom. She lannounced ilhat a backyard and bake sale was pjannedl for, July 12 at the home of Mrs. Carl Carlson, 547 Rio St. Prizes were awarded Mrs. Estella Walker, Mrs. Paul' Carlson, Mrs. George Kennedy and Mrs. Rees. Mrs. Ethel Taylor and Mrs. Rees served refreshments and honored those having birthdays from January through June. PAGE 13 By JEAN BARNES Once in a great while a collection is found that outshines the usual accumulation of related objects. The collection assembled by Mrs. R. R. Melton, Marion, Kan., is not made up of antiques or collectibles. But her "treasures" are as much a part of family tradition as the quilt top or the crewel embroidery from past generations. It should be easy for her to go back to Germany with a tan, because her last stop in October will be Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara, Mexico. Miss Franck was surprised at the speed limits here. Ini Germany there are none at all, and she relates that her father likes to travel 140 mph in his German Ford. What she has liked very much about America as the friendliness of everyone. And she has found a state which reminds her of her native land — Washington. With all the trees and the climate, it resembles Zwei­ brucken, located near Alsace Lorraine. While in Indianapolis, Miss Franck attended a wedding, which she enjoyed, but couldn't help comparing it to German weddings. There, weddings are comprised of several parties, beginning Friday evening and ending with a big dance Saturday evening. They also have a custom in Germany called Polterabend! — which means that relatives and friends throw dishes at the door to wish- the newly-:, weds good luck. It sounds like fun for everyone except the bridegroom — he has to clean up the mess, and just when he thinks he has it all cleaned up, surprise, another barrage of dishes comes flying. Miss Franck left Galesburg this morning for Wichita, Kan., then she will return to Idaho Falls where she has been staying with another cousin and his family, Fred Mueller. July and August she will tour San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Jackson Hole, Wyo., Glacier Park, and Canada. She said Florida and New England may have to wait for her next visit, because she doesn't have any relatives in those areas. Wonder if that government official will be amazed to hear that. —Alice Brockmani '6 Mrs. Larry J.

Other officers elected at the June meeting were John Goltermann, first vice president; Fred Rathgeber, second vice president; Charles Linn, treasurer; James Butler, past president; Mrs. Stephen Contro, Gift Shop Committee, and Mrs. J.

The Art Center is here to stay because of all of you who have worked so hard and been so loyal, let's all take that next step and have another successful year."

Fish Amandine STEIN'S For A NAME PIN ^PYour Name Engraved On A • Metal Pin in Assarted $120 Colors FROM I A Leo Stein & Sons, Inc. V JEWELRY DEPT. m K. MAIN ST. - Dowulowu Galesburg Plus Engraving One homemaker devised her pie crust design for six sons, all of whom played baseball. Mrs. Melton collects pie 1 crust designs. Her hobby started nearly two decades ago and encompasses about 300 designs, each as distinctive as a signature. Remember the steam vents cut into your mother's pie top? Chances are she used her creative abilities by cutting the vents in a pretty design. "Many women mark their pie crusts exactly as their mothers marked theirs," Mrs. Melton said. Thus, pie top designs become almost family traditions. This unusual collection started and grew with the help of the U.S. mail. Mrs. Mellon prepared postal cards which she sends to friends, ac- readured quaintances and well-known personalities. With the card is a letter, explaining her hobby and requesting a draw* ing of the design to add to her collection. Wife of a Marion, Kan., physician and mother of three grown children, Mrs. Melton has preserved a tiny bit of Americana by combining her ingenuity and imagination with her interests as a homemaker. It isn't unusual then that her second hobby would be pie baking—but with a difference. Her pie tops are works of art—painted with food coloring with a water color brush before baking. If it's a cherry pie the top will be colorful with a sprig of green leaves and clusters of cherries. Shamrocks pattern her St. Patrick's Day pie and red hearts pattern her Valentine's Day offering. Her pies are well-known in the smaty community and are to be found at church suppers, club meetings and bake sales. She also likes to bake for friends and shut-ins. Mrs. Melton cuts the steam vents in her pie tops with special cutters she has shaped (Continued From Page 14) When your favorite fisherman comes in with the big catch, surprise him with Fish Amandine — a simple, yet sophisticated main dish which will win praise from your family. The fish's delightful flavor evolves from a medley of spices and herbs, all-purpose seasoning, turmeric, savory and mace. A new potato dish, Creole Potato Puff, goes great with Fish Amandine. Custard-like, it's different enough to grace a company buffet table, simple enough to set before the family at mealtime.
