FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE NINE American Slang Easier to Learn Than Proper English, Says Korean Ji Duk Zyung of Korea, guest speaker at the Soroptimist Club's luncheon meeting Thursday in Mineral Springs Hotel, told of his experiences as a college student in this country. The speaker, a student at Southern Illinois University here since 1960, says he loves the United States, and that "it is easier to read and understand slang than real English." Mr. Zyung said he was impressed with the American army in Korea, and this influenced his decision to study in this country. HP was a member of the Korean infantry. He said that the feeling against the Communists In South Korea is even stronger than in the United States. In comparing conditions in the United States and Korea, the speaker said there are possibly more cars in Alton than in all of South Korea; that he earns as much as a janitor as his father, a Korean attorney; that Ihoro is a similar difference, in living costs; and that the rich people in Korea live in the cities, while the country people arc poor and uneducated. The Korean religion was formerly Buddist. the speaker said, but there are now more Christians than members of other religions. Thr Soroptimists will have a makeup meeting at noon on Sept. 26; and the next business session will be in hotel on Oct. 3.

Although the fit of stretched-out styles skims the waist, there is not enough slack to conceal a middle-riddle. You have to solve the problem WORD-A-DAY By BACH if you want to wear the fashion.

Women Buy Status,, Not Warmth (AP Newsfeatures) Ninety per cent of the American women who buy fur coats do so for psychological satisfactions, not necessities. They don't care whether coats are warm or long wearing. They buy the ones that make them feel good, that fit into the psychological picture. That is what Louis Cheskin, told members of the Associated Fur Industries in Chicago. Cheskin is a well known author and director of a marketing and motivation research institute. He claims that 85 per cent of American middle class consumers buy what the community accepts and what is status, and only 12 to 15 per cent buy what they want. "It is characteristic of an affluent society, such as ours today," he says, to pay for originality, creativity, unusualness." Cheskin urged furriers to keep furs a status symbol, reminding them they must compete with boats, swimming pools, and sports cars for the status dollar.

Use medium-sized potatoes, pare them, and count on the spuds needing an hour and a half if the meat is being roasted in a slow (325 degrees) oven. Baste the potatoes with the good meat drippings and turn them at least once so they'll brown evenly. Meat to be used for swiss steak usually needs to be pounded. If there's no meat mallet in the house, use the edge of a heavy saucer. After you turn cookie-bar dough into the pan, be sure to spread It evenly. Use a small spatula for this.
