Spoon cake is something special Apricot spoon cake is Southern specialty for all regional tastes. Tips for young jobseekers Landers DEAR ANN: You be the judge. Our son insists that ne not 'be denied the right to "be himself" — his father says, "You must learn to compromise if you're going to live in the real world." Who is might? John walked the streets for three colid weeks looking for a job. He is 20, has decided not to go back to college (says it's a waste of time) and is a quiet boy with strong principles. John and his father have always seen things from a different point of view. I am sure John is not as radical as his father thinks he is, nor is his father as conservative as John seems to believe. Tonight a friend of ours called to let us know that Johft had been in to see him about a job. Our friend told John that since he would be meeting the public he would have to trim his hair somewhat and get rid of his beard. John promptly let him know that he did not want the job if it meant submerging his personality and be something he wasn't. A full-blown argument followed between father and son and, as Is the case with most arguments, no one convinced anyone of anything. We would appreciate It if you would let us know how you feel about this. Could John have accepted the boss' terms without selling out the Establishment?" — FOR AND AGAINST DEAR F AND A: When a young man goes looking for a job he should accept the fact that he is not going to make the rules or call the signals. The burden of proof is on him — not the employer. An employer who does not want a young man with long hair and a beard will'not look favorably on a fellow who says "take it or leave it." I realize there are laws against .discrimination, but there are no laws against refusing to hire an applicant with a negative personality — and this is why John and others like him lose out. DEAR ANN: Our daughter is marrying a boy we do not know very well. His family lives in another city. The mother of the groom sent us the guest list yesterday. We were surprised to see the name of a young cousin who is an epileptic. We don't want to spoil the wedding by exposing our guests to the unpleasant experience of witnessing a fit. What can we do except tell the woman we don't want to take the chance - ON THE SPOT DEAR ON: Almost all epileptics respond to drugs which control seizures. (Please don't say "fits".) The cousin should be invited. To exclude him would be an unspeakable act of cruelty. DEAR ANN: Recently a column of yours created quite an argument. I refer to the one where you said It was in poor taste to print on an 8jr AIEEN CLAIRE NEA Food Editor Those dessert lovers who never have tasted a traditional plantation spoon cake are in for a special treat. Spoon cakes have a bottom layer of pudding and a fruit topping. Try one with apricot halves and almonds that rise to the top during baking. This Is good hot or cold and many will insist on a lemon-flavored whipped cream as a topper served while the Apricot spoon Cake is still warm.

Frankly, I think when people ask for your opinion you have the right to tell them what you think. And now here's another question along the same line: I received a wedding invitation last week and to it was attached a little card that said, "The bride is doing their apartment in Italian Provincial. This might be helpful to know." Do you consider such a message to be in good taste? Yes or no.-JUST ASKING. DEAR JUST: No, I do not. Is an upcoming wedding driving you bananas?

The ice does not come oit easily any more. I have rsad how to re-treat these trays but do not remember what the procedure was. -LYNNE DEAR POLLY - My Pet Peeve is with the manufac- turers of sewing notions. Hooks and eyes come on cards with one third eyes, one third metal bar loop and }ust one third hooks, Since the hooks and eyes are interchangeable, to say nothing of many people preferring to make their own thread loops, their proportionate number jf hooks is all wrong. I suggest they change to one-sixth loops, one-sixth eyes and two- thirds hooks. — M.H. DEAR POLLY - To keep your napkin from slipping off your lap onto the floor while dining in a restaurant keep a large pin stuck in the lining of your purse.

By AILEEN SNODDY NEW YORK (NEA) — The do-it-yourself crane continues to stir dreams of decorating glory and women of all ages. Especially popular now is the revival of handcrafting. Men, women and children embroider, hook rugs, weave fabric or rugs or wall hangings, sew or crochet. Behind the current interest In working with one's hands, according to Judy Collings, director oi style for a home fashions group, is "the dissatisfaction with impersonal objects. People are interested in having and making on e-of-a-k i n d possessions." The desire may well be there but for some individuals the lack of ability is discouraging. '' F o r I u n a t e 1 y for the hammer-my-thum.b person who cannot sew, stitch or wield a brush without disastrous results," Miss Collings points out, "simulated crafts items are on the market and they do not cost a fortune. They can make a room come alive with a seemingly personal touch." A classic example is the use of many "stitchery" techniques in a traditional room that could come, out of Colonial Williamsburg. One . such room which she likes to call one that reflects "handcrafted look without work" has a contemporized flamestitch used on the screen and window cantonniere. She explains this comes from the simple embroidery originally known as "point d'Hungrie," Florentine or Bargetlo work. Early examples of flame stitching have been found dating to the third and fourth centuries and this art reached its peak in 14th - century England. Combined with this, Revival oi handcrafting Handcrafting in the form of needlepoint, embroidery and rug weaving or hooking proves satisfying for millions. The handcrafted-look revolves around multiple patterns and for those who do. not want to take the time to make their own, it is possible to get readymade versions down to the last stitch. Combining patterns is important. Miss Collings says as she continues to describe one room setting, is handworked crewel on a wing chair. Accessories may be gay yarns in a basket and a hand worked embroidered pillow. A handmade import floral rug that looks like needle • point may be purchased along with other "hand - crafted look" items or done by hand by the really ambitious. Framed primitives for example, in the classic fruit basket design also may be bought to fit into today's readymade handcrafted room.

LAMB—I read an article by you on tips to combat stomach acid. It seemed to fit my condition perfectly. I've had X rays taken and received a report of only a "pre-ulcer condition." Many of my friends with ulcers drink a little milk or cream and seem to get relief. In my case it seems to make the pain in my stomach worse. I've tried to follow an ulcer diet, but I don't get any relief. Do you have any suggestions for me? DEAR READER - I'm always suspicious when a patient tells me that he has been on a bland diet or the type of diet that is normally given for ulcer patients and his condition is actually made worse. Not infrequently, these are the people who have trouble with milk tolerance. They cannot digest the milk sugar. When this happens, the milk sugar stays in the digestive tract and acts somewhat like a chemical laxative, causing gas, distention, sometimes diarrhea and irritates the digestive tract in general. The best way to find out if this is the case is merely to stop using all dairy products long enough to find out if this is true. If so, the cure then is no*, the usual ulcer treatment, but staying away from all milk products and anything containing milk. Such individuals will still need the calcium found in milk. I recommend that these people try to find a soybean milk replacement that has been fortified with the same amount of calcium By Dr. Lawrence E. Lamb that's normally present i n milk. If you can't find it in your grocery store, it can usually be found in healui food stores. The other problem which can be confused with ordinary ulcer pain is the low blooi sugar problem. Individuals whose blood sugar drops sharply often have ulcer symptoms. The reason is that the same mechanism that causes excess insulin to be poured out from the pancreas that causes the low blood sugar also stimulates the stomach 10 pour out acid pepsin juice. Milk, with its milk sugar, and some other products that people might eat on an ulcer diet actually aggravate the low blood sugar problem. These individuals are often best treated by avoiding sweets, milk, sweet drinks of any sort, including particularly hot, sweetened coffee, and directing their dietary program toward vegetables, cereals, meats and beans. They should avoid foods with lots of sugar such as fruits, sweets, baked products, including pies, . cakes and any sweet rolls. In both instances the best way I know to find out if this is the problem is to test yourself along the lines just suggested. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph, For • copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on blood sugar, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Blood Sugar" booklet. Cooking cues Just for a change, use raisin bread when you aw making peanut-butter sandwiches for your youngsters.

NO, not as long as there are still survivors even remotely connected with the past. One imperishable bit in the human make-up is the desire to think back to the way things used to be; and almost without exception most people seem to think that conditions were always better than the way they are now, A hundred years from now, 1972 ways — as highly technical as we think they are — will appear simple when compared with the 'life style of 2072. Does 'gradual' love lack romance? DON'T believe it, although unexpected love does seem to have an edge with the romantics who favor a love that suddenly "comes out of the blue" Yet a love that gradually develops between a man and a woman can be just as romantic, even if it lacks the "pyrotechnics" of flamii(ig sudden love. Gradual love, too, can be more lasting. Since it isn't "urgent," it doesn't impel a couple to declare their love until they are s|ire it is the real thing. Is kids' behavior polarized, too? N0|, bu< many parents and adultp have certainly done their utmost to make it seem that whatever children do is either extremely good or extremely bad. Accustomed to hearng "That's a good boy" or 'J0h, my gosh, what did you get into now?", the average child is almost inhibited in his behavior. Another thing, parental p o 1, a r i ? i n g of children's behavior begins so early, a chik|t hardly knows what it is Uf act like and enjoy being a kid. O lira Klntf Features Syndicate, Inc.)
