DIXON EVENING TELEGRAPH Wednesday, July 23,1969 I have written about the fame of Durgin-Park as one of the most famous beaneries. While this gusty, 135- year-old restaurant has done much to maintain the tradition of Boston baked beans, it also has made great contributions to the art of pastry making. Two of the choice creations are old-fashioned apple pie and apple pan dowdy. For the apple pie make two crusts in your favorite way for a 9-inch pie pan. Line the pan with one of the crusts. Peel and slice fine 6 to 9 apples, the number depending upon size. Fill the pie pan half full of the sliced apples. Atop the apples put cup of sugar, a generous sprinkling of nutmeg and of cinnamon (1 teaspoon of each all told). Add the rest of the apples to fill the pie pan round full. Again top with cup of sugar, the sprinklings of nutmeg and cinnamon and 2 tablespoons butter cut into small pieces. Pour over 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice. Cover with the top crust and cut two small vents. Glaze the crust by brushing lightly with milk, sprinkle with sugar. Put into a preheated 400-degree overn for 30 minutes until top crust browns nicely then reduce heat to 325 and cook for another 25 to 20 minutes. Hard to Beat Served with an aged longhorn cheddar cheese, this is hard to beat. Ample for 8 guests. The pan dowdy is made in a larger and deeper pan. Double your favorite crust recipe and prepare the pan as for the pie. need 4 times the quantity of apples and increase the other ingredients as follows: 2 cups of sugar, 2 teaspoons nutmeg, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice. Additional ingredients will be Vi teaspoon of salt on each layer of apples and 14 cup molasses (instead of the butter) poured over all before placing the top crust. Glaze the crust as indicated above and sprinkle with sugar. Bake as for the pie.

Over 1,000 Attend Manor Dedication AMBOY More than 1,000 persons visited the new Mapleside Manor during dedication and open house Sunday afternoon. In the brief dedication ceremony, Dr. David Shapiro, state representative from the 35th district, said that the advances in space program were a challenge for development in other areas to keep pace and that he thought the opening of the new home, with so many modern innovations, was definitely in keeping with this trend. Mayor Stacy Flaherty cut the ribbon to officially open the new home. Tours were conducted and refreshments were served in the dining room. The Doctor Says By W. G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. No scientific development in recent years has aroused as much controversy as the Pill. Since it is estimated that about eight million women of childbearing age, or about one in six, are taking the Pill, it has undoubtedly filled a real need and, until something better becomes available, it will continue to be used. At present, it consists of a synthetic female hormone plus progestin, a compound that resembles a hormone secreted during pregnancy. As a result, the user is in a physiological state that simulates pregnancy and may suffer some of the side effects of pregnancy, such as nausea, fullness of the breasts and an increased retention of water in the tissues. Adverse effects attributed to prolonged use of the Pill have included clotting in the blood vessels of the legs, thinning of the hair, nervous irritability, depression, headache, liver spots on the face (chloasma or the mask of pregnancy), a sensitivity to sunlight disease and elevated blood pressure, to name a few. The proportion of women taking the Pill who develop any of these conditions is very low and, in many cases, a direct casual relationship to the drug cannot be established. But the seriousness of some of these complications warrants close medical supervision. One study shows that serious clotting problems occur chiefly 'r women whose blood is type A. In any case, a woman who is taking the Pill should have a periodic checkup and should report to her physician promptly if any unusual symptoms occur. Women who have breast or uterine clotting in the veins, migraine or diabetes should not take the Pill but should use some other method of contraception. Since the Pill remains the most effective contraceptive yet devised, the danger must be weighed against those of becoming pregnant, which may also cause clotting, kidney damage, high blood pressure an headaches. Improved formulation of the drugs used is the constant aim of the manufacturers. Perhaps the most promising new development is a ring pessary im- pregnate with medroxyprogester- I one to be placed in the vagina I five days after the onset of a menstrual period, kept in place 21 days, then discarded. If this proves to be effective, it will rightly or wrongly attributed to eliminate all the hazards now the Pill. OTTIE IARY John Dietrich, Mrs. George Trupe and Leroy Trupe, all of Ephrata, were recent guests of Mrs. John Thomas. Mrs. George Lenox, Cathy Miller, Gary Lenox and Mrs. Thomas visited in Pennsylvania and Morristown, N.J., last week. While there, Mrs. Thomas went to an Antique Flea Market and purchased a plate with a picture of the old YMCA, administration building of the old college and the city hall of Dixon on the plate. Truck License Deadline Is Set July 31 SPRINGFIELD Truck and other second division motor vehicle registration for the 19691970 fiscal year is currently about 700.000 of on estimated total of 965,000, with the extended deadline or July 31 a little more than a week away, Secretary of State Paul Powell announced today. Because this year marks the change from a calendar year to a fiscal year system for registering second division vehicles, many truck owners, especially individual owners, are unfamiliar with the new procedure, and as a courtesy to them, the original deadline of midnight, July 15, was extended to midnight, July 31, Powell said.
