The Grower's Art Raspberries Don't Bear First Year by FRED CLAUSEN Telegraph Garden Columnist Dear Mr. Clausen: I read in your column how to trim black raspberries. FUED. I put out some jred raspberries ,last fall. The new plants came up this spring but did not have berries. I would like to know .when and how to take care of them. Also wh en do you trim them? Do I cut the tops off of new plants now or in the spring?—Mrs. E. B. Dorsey. Answer: Neither red nor black raspberries produce berries the first season after planting. They have to grow new shoots first to bear the following year. Red raspberries produce new shoots all around the plant. Those in the row are left for bearing, and those outside the row are used for transplanting. The tallest shoots are usually trimmed back, armpit high, in spring. Cut old canes out soon after bearing. Dear Mr. Clausen: I have two rose bushes that have not bloomed for the past two years. They are side by side, planted on the south side of the house. They are climbing roses and very healthy bushes. I have to keep pruning them often, as they grow fast and are in the way. (They're four years old.) Can you explain why they don't have any buds on them? I've even fed them with "rose food" in the spring to see if that would help them. — Mrs. Home Notes Recipes from Austria and Italy Editor's Note: Elaine Wendler, Madison County Home Adviser, who recently toured Europe, brought back recipes from various countries. This column includes those from Austria and Italy. by ELAINE WENDLER County Home Adviser Austrian cooking means many sweets and' tortes, and we would like to share the famous SACHERTORTE with you. This the most famous gateau of Vienna, which in a way is rather strange, because it- differs so much from any of the other typical Viennese cakes, which are mostly very rich and creamy. You may have heard one of the many stories concerning the SACHERTORTE, and how and why it was first created. There are quite a number in existence, and of course everyone claims that his or her story is the only true version. To this list we add another, which goes like this: The famous Prince Metternich, who was one of the leading statesmen of the Vienna Congress, once said to Mr. Sacher, who was the founder of the well- known hotel, "Why don't you make a plainer and more masculine gateau? All those rich creamy creations are only for sweet-tooth women." So Mr. Sacher made up the recipe for the following cake, and a very successful creation it proved to be: Suchcrtorto 5 ozs. butter (10 tablespoons) 5 OXK. sugar (10 tablespoons) 5 ozs. chocolate 8 egg yolks 10 egg whites 4 ozs. flour (1 cup) 2 ozs, apricot Jam (2 tablespoons) Covering (frosting) 6 ozs, sugar (1 cup) 6 ozs. finest plain chocolate Beat the butter until quite fluffy, melt the chocolate in the oven, add this together with the sugar to the creamed butter. Add the egg yolks one after the pther. Whisk the egg whites sttf/ly, fold in the flour and mix thjs carefully with the llrst mixture. gutter u cake tin, flour lightly, flll in with theimteture and bate itewly to a medium oven tjjp I 1 *) IWlttpii* When baked, take out, put on a wire tray and then turn at once onto another one; it is essential that this cake cools in the same position in which it was baked. When cool, cut top flat so that it can stand on this side, as the bottom part is used for covering, and must be quite smooth. Warm the apricot jam slightly, spread over the cake and cover with the chocolate icing. Chocolate Icing: Bring the sugar to the boil with slightly less than : /2 cup of water, cook until it forms a thin thread at the end of an inserted wooden spoon, add" the melted chocolate, mix well, there must be no lumps. Keep stirring until mixture is thick enough to pour over the cake. Leave to set and serve whipped cream in a bowl separately with the cake. Italy So much for Austria and all their excellent pastries. The next country on the list is Italy. For the past two thousand years more foreigners have been exploring Italy than any other European country. Why? For one thing, there's the natural splendor of this sun-flooded peninsular, flanked by the Mediterranean and the Adriatic and stretching 700 miles from the Alps and flow- erbordered lakes of the north to the cobalt seas and golden beaches of Sicily. Italian women are famous for their beauty, a reputation that has been recently inflated al• most to the bursting point by stars of the Italian cinema. In the Venezi region you will find those dazzling girls with reddish gold hair and the warm luminous skin that goes so perfectly with it, that rich coloring known as Titian-red in honor of the great Venetian artist who captured it so often on canvas. You drive on the right side of the road; that's the rule, even if the Italians show a proclivity for preferring the middle, Italian cooking means spaghetti, olive oil, etc., however let us share the recipe for RISI E BISI (a traditional Venetian soup served with rice and peas that once graced the table at all official banquets under the ancient Republic of Venice.) 3 Ibs. peas weighed before shelling. 1 Ib. rice 2% to 3 pints hot meat stock 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon lard 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsely 2 spring onions Shell and wash peas. Heat oil, butter and lard in heavy pan, add finely chopped onions and parsely and cook gently. Add peas and allow to cook long enough to absorb fat. Add enough meat stock to cover and allow to bubble before adding rice. Add % additional stock and cook gently without stirring for 25-30 minutes until rice is cooked. At end of cooking stir in a further tablespoon of butter and 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan and, when serving, hand a dish of grated Parmesan so that more may be added if wished, Add more stock if the dish becomes too dry. Ralph Vahle, Godfrey. Answer: Climbing roses should bear some the second season after planting, and more and more after that. I suggest you dig them up and discard them. Life is too short to have something like that to worry about. Then plant two other roses in a more favorable spot. And good luck to you. Dear Mr. Clausen: I have a walnut tree which bears well, but often, after hulling, walnuts open at the seams and meat dries out. This did not happen until last four of five years. Would you suggest anything? Also it seems the wasps either sting or suck juice out of our grapes and they rot and dry out, Have you any suggestions on this?—Morris Mayford, Alton. Answer: Hulled nuts of any kind should be kept in a cool place to prevent drying out. Try keeping them in moist (not wet) sand. Perhaps you had a different storage place some years ago. Grapes should be sprayed 3-4 times a season to prevent rot and shriveling. Too late this year. I know we did not have to do this years ago and neither did we have to spray apples. (Them were the good old days.) Dear Fred: How can I eliminate field clover from my yard?—L. A. C., Alton. Answer: If by field clover you mean red clover you should not have many plants and I suggest you dig them out by hand. If you mean white clover they can undoubtedly be controlled by chemical sprays, although I have never tried it. White clover comes and goes in cycles. When it goes there are bare, unsightly spots in your lawn for awhile. Send your questions on gardening to Fred Clausen in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph.

Fwguspii—Wood Hiver £4» tt.V MAttV StJfc MtLLteH A recent survey shows that 25,000,000 Americans are overweight. Why? Too much food, that's why. Studies also show that many overweight people have tried to reduce and failed. You know it! Dieting is our most popular topic of conversation. Let's face the fat with facts. Why do we overeat? Why can't we cut down for long? Nutritionists believe that eating patterns developed in childhood are part of the picture. If you were overfed as a child, your appetite may not take "no" for an answer now. In the opinion of psychologists, some overeating is a form of compensation for worry, frustration or boredom. Food, in such cases, becomes a kind of tranquilizer. All experts are agreed that if a woman would pinpoint the underlying reason for her compulsion to overeat, she would take a giant step toward overcoming it. The next move is an approved diet, not a get- thin-quick job. Other than trimming, the main purpose of a diet is to re-educate the appetite so that it comes to enjoy less food. The project requires the kind of food and time that no faddy regimen can supply. In fact the fad diet accounts for the majority of reducing failures. Procrastination — "I'll diet tomorrow" — is of course the frontline enemy of weightcon- trol. Only begin today and you will lose ten pounds in a month, if you follow any one of the LOVELIER YOU diets. Meantime you learn the secret of staying slim, healthy and good lookin'. Diet And Like It!

We have a two-year-old son. The problem trantrums — (n o t the boy's, jbut his'father's. If Woo d r o w can't find what Jhe is looking for ^ he pulls every- -ibing out of the rawer and leaves it on the floor. Several Ann Landers, months ago he broke his toe kicking the furniture. This spring he sprained his wrist punching a dent in the car because it was out of gas. Last week when Woodrow got hold of a shirt with a loose button he tore the collar off and left the shirt in the refrigerator so I wouldn't miss it. VVoodrow left for work this morning without speaking because I washed a theater stub in his shirt pocket. I don't know how to deal with his temper. Can you suggest something? MOLLY DEAll MOLLY: Deal with him as you would any child who has tantrums. Take all sharp objects out of his hands and ignore him. Woodrow needs professional help but if you suggested it he'd probably have another tantrum. * # * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I read where the woman from Atlanta who was named "Secretary of the Year," said a good secretary limits her personal calls to necessities and emergencies. She put it this way: "Remember, when you are in the office your time belongs to your employer." I've been working here for three months. I, too, believe a secretary's time belongs to • her employer, but what can I do when an older .woman wastes at least two hours of my day? She babbles incessantly, gossiping • and airing her family troubles, reporting in detail doings of her bridge club, droning on and on until I could scream, I don't want to tattle to the office manager yet this bore reduces my productivity about 25%. What can I do? FRUSS-TRAYTED DEAR FRUSS: Have a ready phrase and rehearse it aloud so you can say it easily. Here's a sample: "Please save it for later. I'm terribly behind right now." Then continue to work.

The possessive in-laws live out of the state. They are hurt if we don't send our children to them for one month every summer. They send the kids gifts galore and phone long distance every week just to talk to them. Frankly they overdo it. My parents are just the opposite. They live nearby, but we don't see much of them. They have never offered to sit with the kids or even taken them out for an ice cream cone. I want our children to like both sets of grandparents the same. We hate for them to be "bought" on the one hand and ignored on the other. What do you suggest? DOUBLE 0 DEAR O: You are not going to change either set of grandparents so don't try. " And you can forget about getting the children to like both sets of grandparents "the same." All people react to the treatment they receive and coaching from the sidelines is a waste of breath. * * * * Are your parents too strict?
