Salads Star at Summer Meals IliBfiSllSSilfiilliSlIi miniiJlliiill 111 ;HlilllllllliIli!i!ll!IIIIil(llffi!l! Heather Van Ness, left, Shelly Jacobs, and Pattie Pecharich are learning from their teacher, Julie Coombs, that warming up the muscles with exercises is vital before strenuous dancing to prevent injury. •IIH'! 1H fiiiinJJufffliBBtafflluMltttllU iliiHiil' i llli nflmwHlati By ALICE BROCKMAN (Staff Writer) Ballet dancing takes the nerve to create, not necessarily talent. It takes hard work and discipline, but the end result for Julie Coombs is that she has been called a "beautiful dancer." Mrs. Coombs, who will be a junior at Knox College this fall, received 10 years of ballet training in Chicago from master dance teachers, and is now translating her knowledge to her students, both children and adults, who have been taking dance instruction from her this summer on the campus. The Dance Workshop also includes lessons in Modern and Jazz Ballet. enna< Mrs. Coombs derives great joy from dancing, and she hopes that her students will, also. But for her early training, it was filled with "horrifying" experiences, because she was taught by a stern taskmaster, Edna McRae, who is now master dance teacher at the Joffrey Ballet in New York. Miss McRae* threw Mrs. Coombs out of class one day when she was about seven or so because she hadn't mastered a step. She went home and practiced it until she perfected it. Then the following week, she was so proficient, she was asked to demonstrate it. However, fearing that she Woman's Today. would fail in front of the class, she feigned illness. Fortunately for Mrs. Coombs, she later studied with Eric Braun, who had danced with the American Ballet. He revived her love of dancing, but when she was 18 she had ankle problems and was afraid that her dancing career might be over. An operation corrected the problem. As a sophomore at Knox last year, many people became interested in her teaching a ballet class, which she did for ~ college credit. She feels that rewards are tremendous for these students because the physical exercise of the dancing "cleans out their mind," since it is difficult to concentrate on anything else but the steps. Afterwards, the students reported they could study better. Practice, Practice For the children, who are always impatient, they just want to be ballerinas, but Mrs. Coombs tries to install in them just how much hard work is involved .tot. They ance to learn is to express emotion, and to act out the character Hey play, or no one will understand what they represent. It's fun for the children to imitate a squirrel's stroll or a raccoon's ramble, but it isn't as easy as it sounds, especially if you're plieing and releve- ing along with it. One of the most important things that students have to learn, whether they're children or adults, is that dancing is not just acrobatic, it's also interpretative, Mrs. Coombs ehphasizes. Mrs. Coombs, who resides with her husband Jeffrey near Abingdon, is teaching the children classical bar work which includes learning the French terms for all the steps, and the musical times. Children have the ability, she said, to learn much faster than adults and they are not as inhibited in trying to learn the steps as adults. They can also imitate more easily and are have to memorl^ the> ste ^V "S 00 * 1 at I**" 1 * at tne total and practice, practice, prac- ' figure of their teacher. GALESBURG, ILL., Ceremony Read At Corpus Christi Church Nuptial Mass for the wedding of Miss Paula Jean Bradford, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene L. Bradford, 1831 E. Main St., and Kenneth W. Mason, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph E. Mason, 940 N. Broad St., was solemnized Saturday at 2 p.m. at Corpus Christi Church rather than at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church. Celebrant of the Mass and reading the double ring, cere- 'mony for the couple was Rev. James Rickey, Immaculate Heart of Mary Church. Those given serving honors at the reception included Mrs. Frank Rogers, the bride's sister, and the bride's nieces, Miss Teresa Tracy and Miss Karen Tracy, all of Cameron, The newlyweds will live at 204 Vernon St., Newljano, La„ after Aug. 6. Couple Plans An Open House Mr. and Mrs. John Nemeth, Artoada, Colo., will be guests of honor at an open house Sunr day at the home of Mrs. Nemeth's aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Chauncey Kenney, 1271 Parkview Circle. Friends and relatives are invited to attend between the tours of 4 and 8 p.m. Mr. and Mrs. Nemeth and their four children are visiting with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Maliin, Lake Bracken. tice. Her class has written a ballet which they will perform for their parents Friday in recital. It's about little animals in the forest who meet each other, then have a celebration. Mrs. Coombs says that children are romanticists and have created a lovely story, but the hardest part for them Plan Open House Mr. and Mrs. Donald Sedgwick, 857 E. Knox St., will observe their 40tb wedding anniversary at an open house Sunday at the Faith United Methodist Church. Friends and relatives are invited to call from 2 to 5 p. m. at the church. The couple was married Oct. 23, 1933 in Chicago. Hosts for the event will be their four sons and three daughters-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Gary Sedgwick of LaMore, Calif., Mr. and Mrs. Jon Sedgwick of Rock Island, Mr. and Mrs. Ted Sedgwick of Galesburg and Walter Sedgwick of Atlanta, Ga., all of whom will be present for the event, as will their four grandsons. Mr. Sedgwick is a Burlington Northern foreman at the rail yard. But one of their main problems is trying to put the steps together with the music. In fact, most ballet schools require musical training along with the dance instruction. Mrs. Coombs herself learned to play a little piano, • but basically she doesn't know a great deal about classical music. She feels in a way this helps her to be less inhibited with her dancing, because instead of selecting music that fits 'the stereotype of what she is trying to dance, she only chooses what she likes. Now she is in the process of choreographing a ballet with a friend for Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. The original ballet was about a maiden being sacrificed to springtime. Her version represents a war between the red and black ants. It would be for a ballet troupe of 200, dressed in red or black costumes, against an all-white stage. Ballet dancers have to learn to overcome shyness because it does involve quite a bit of self-expression. Mrs. Coombs wants them to be proud, almost arrogant, and not hide behind their hands. She emphasizes, though, that dancers should dance just to please themselves. Classic Whiteg This season's fashion favorite is classic' white. Whether it comes in the tennis-style dress or layered white on white with tank top slacks and jacket, the look is sure to be an eye-catcher.

Fresh Cantaloupe with Fruit Filling is a salad spectacular in red, white and blue. Begin by removing a slice from one end of the melon so the seeds can be removed, leaving the melon intact.
