Sukiyaki Beef Salad for when girls gather By DOROTHY YEGLIN Rttlittr'f Pood miter Women's luncheons — like women — have come a long way. Gone are the days when a midday party was almost certain to revolve around creamed chicken, a casserole, or salad of seafood or chicken. Now many a hostess is more likely to go gourmet when the girls gather. The trend is to dishes of distinction to suit today's more sophisticated tastes. Yet the creation need not call for any more fussing than time-worn favorites. In this globe-trotting era foreign fare often may be the inspiration for a luncheon, and Sukiyaki Beef Salad is one good example. Borrowing an idea from that popular Japanese meat and vegetable entree, this combination features cooked beef strips and a variety of vegetables tossed with a ginger and soy dressing. For extra flavor, meat is marinated in mayonnaise- based dressing prior to serving time. Spinach, water chestnuts, green onions and SUKIYAKI BEEF SALAD 4 cops julienne strips of cooked beef (very narrow strips 2 to 3 inches long) 2 tablespoons brown sugar ¥4 teaspoon ginger % cup mayonnaise % cup soy sauce 1 tablespoon vinegar bean sprouts add flavor and texture interest. To keep the Japanese tradition of sukiyaki, arrange the ingredients attractively on a serving tray or in a large bowl and toss the salad after it comes to the table. You can plan ahead for this dish when purchasing and preparing a,beef roast for dinner the day before. The julienne strips may be cut from any popular cooked roast such as rump, rib, top or chuck eye. Just select a large enough cut of meat to provide a leftover portion; wrap securely in one large piece and refrigerate promptly. As a luncheon starter, guests can sip tomato juice served with celery stick stirrers and a variety of crackers. Since the salad is almost a complete meal in itself, the main course need be supplemented only with rolls — crusty ones will add contrast. Fill sherbet dishes with melon balls. Almond cookies and hot tea will carry out the theme. 1 tablespoon snipped parsley 2 cups torn spinach 16-ounce can bean sprouts, drained 8-ounce can water chestnuts, drained and sliced Vz cup sliced green onions Buttered croutons, if desired COYOTES:A GROWING LA, PROBLEM By ROBERT MEYERS © mi witMwton Post LOS ANGELES, CALIF. 'The coyote jumped right over he six-foot-high fence and came into our patio. It was broad daylight," Nita Rosenfeld ecalled. Her experience is becoming increasingly common in he Los Angeles area, as coyotes roam suburban streets alone or in packs. Pets Vanish A number of homeowners tell stories of the coyotes' mournful cry ("like a baby crying," says author Jeanie Kasindorf), and of cats and small dogs that disappear. "We have lost three cats to coyotes recently," says journalist Sally Davis, who ives in the semi-rural area of of life that Place beef strips in shallow bowl. Combine brown sugar, ginger, mayonnaise, soy sauce and vinegar. Blend well. Stir in parsley. Fold half of dressing into beef strips and refrigerate —Hiounjnfiore. At serving time groupf remaining ingredients around marinated meat in large bowl or on tray. Toss and serve with remaining dressing. Makes 6 servings.

Plowing progress exhibit set Two centuries of progress in plowing will be demonstrated a the Living History Farms northwest 1 of Des Moines Frida' in connection with the 197 state plowing contests. The demonstration will trace th evolution of plowing from oxen through the largest tractors in use today. The plowing contest begin at 10 a.m. coyotes are out at night, and that cats might be eaten if they're out, too." A variety of factors are behind Southern California's awareness of coyotes in its in* labited areas. There has been less rain this year than last, J.S. meteorologists here say, which might be bringing coyotes out of their hillside lairs to drink from suburban swimming pools. "I don't remember coyotes coming down out of the hills as much at any time in the 20 rears I've lived here," Mrs. Rosenfeld says. Hillside Homes Another reason is the popu- arity of hillside living. Because the Southern California hills are coyotes' natural habitat, city of* icials express no surprise at he current coyote boom. "Coyotes are a natural resource of this area," says Robert I. Rush, general manager of he Los Angeles City Animal Regulation Department. They're protected from hunt- ng, trapping, poisoning or any other kind of harm. They eat rodents, mice, snakes and small game. Their only natural enemy is the automobile." Estimates of the Southern California coyote population run nto thousands. Coyotes are also found throughout North Amerca, as far north as Alaska, and as far south as Central Amerca. The western and southwestern coyotes usually average between 40 and 60 pounds and measure about three feet high and 4 feet long. They have a tawny coat and large ears. 'Incredibly Adaptable" "The coyote is incredibly adaptable," says Michale Crotty, curator of mammals at the Los Angeles City Zoo. "Man has been trying for years to exterminate them, and hasn't. Coyotes can live Off either meat or plants. They can travel alone, in small families, or large packs. When they mate, they do so for life, but will mate again if the partner is killed." The Animal Regulation Department, Rush says, investigates all complaints against coyotes, but takes action "only if an animal is a genuine nuisance." In the past few years, Rush says his department has heli- coptered "30 or 40" coyotes to the nearby Angeles National Forest, "but some of them trot riglit on back." Domestic Dogs Although a number of subur ban homeowners complain about coyotes harming their pets and overturning trash cans,.Rush says large numbers of wild-running domestic dogs are often at fault. Rush admits that coyotes are often responsible for the dis appearance of small pets. But he adds emphatically that no coyote has ever been known to harm a human. In an effort to lure Coyotes away from swimming pools Los Angeles City opened a three-foot-wide coyote watering hole off Sunset Boulevard in the Pacific Palisades area. A number of coyotes have . appeared there. Rush says another watering hole will open soon in Hollywood Hills. Rural Areas In the rural grazing areas of Los Angeles County, coyotes are regarded with less toler ance. They are seen as a gen uine menace to livestock, especially sheep and poultry. Lo; Angeles County Agriculture Commissioner Paul Engler says various coyote abatement programs have been tried, including a specially designec padded trap. "But we catch as many dogs as coyotes," he says. A controversial aversion treatment program may soon begin.in the county. The program involves lacing lamb meat with lithium chloride. The substance is odorless, colorless not environmentally harmful and induces no effects in coy otes other than vomiting. P.T.BInbo IM GOAJ*Jr\ HAVE ID T£U- BRDMO RATS! I CfWT THIS LENIENCY ON COUP LEADERS ANGERS GREEKS ATHENS, GREECE (AP) The Greek government announced Monday it would take steps to commute the death sentences meted out to former dictator George Papadopoulos and two other leaders of the 1967 coup to life imprisonment once all legal appeals are completed. The reduction of sentences was considered a foregone conclusion and reaction was swift and angry. To forestall street demonstrations against the move, police were placed on full alert in Athens. George Mavros, leader of the main opposition party, the Cener Union-New Forces, said the government's decision com- irises "outright intervention in ;he cause of justice." Other politicians demanded the government's resignation and early elections. "I was certain Popadopoulos and his friends wouldn't be executed despite the death sen- ;ences, but I was flabbergasted by the government's moves so soon after the court came out with the verdict," a Greek housewife said. Will Take Steps An official statement follow- ng a full cabinet session said egal steps would be taken through the justice minister to commute the sentences im- )osed on Papadopoulos, Sty- ianos Patakos and Nicholas Uakarezos. The three men were found guilty Saturday of high treason and insurrection and sentenced to death by firing squad. The statement said that the government "suggests" that the death sentences be commuted. Although the government did not clarify to whom it was making its suggestion, only President Constantino Tsatsos had the constitutional authority to reduce the sentences. The offical statement following the cabinet meeting presided over by Premier Constantine Caramanlis said: "The cabinet decided unanimously to initiate through the minister of justice the legal procedure and to suggest the commuting of the three imposed death sentences to life imprisonment once the court decision becomes irrevocable." The three men also were stripped of their military rank and retirement pay. Papadopulos and Makarezos were brigadiers and Patakos was a major general when they retired. "Political Responsibility" The government had announced within two hours of the verdict Saturday that it would convene Monday to consider the sentences, saying "a sense of political responsibility must prevail." Papadopoulos and the others can appeal to the Supreme Court within five days from Saturday. But they can do so only on grounds of irregularities in trial procedures and ask the Supreme Court to grant them a retrial. If the Supreme Court were to reject such a contention, their only remaining recourse would be for them to apply to the Council of Pardons to have the death sentence commuted. But t h e government's decision would make this step unnecessary for them and in a sense save their pride. The final decision then would rest on the Greek president. An official statement described the government's commutation position as "legally and rationally founded." It said CHICAGO, ILL. (AP) Teachers in 10 Illinois school districts were on strike late Monday, affecting the scheduled first week of classes for more than 30,000 pupils. Negotiating sessions continued in several Other districts despite strike votes taken during the day by teachers. Teacher Pickets After bargaining talks broke down with local boards, teachers set up pickets Monday at Johnston City, Piasa Southwestern, Urbaha, Mattoon, Depue, Spring Valley, Kankakee and Belvidere. A strike at Hills* soro continued, and teachers at Bloom Township in the Chicago suburbs set up picket lines outside an evening school board meeting, saying they also would picket the district's two high schools Tuesday. In Depue, a school board meeting late Monday was discontinued when some 300 residents attempted to get in and state police were summoned. Woody Lee, president of the Illinois Education Association which represents teachers in nine of the affected districts, said salary proposals in the struck districts have failed to keep pace with the cost of living. He said currently 289 local IEA associations are without contracts and termed 56 of these on the "critical list." This Week In most of the districts, teachers-were scheduled to report to work today with classes scheduled to begin later this week. In Sycamore, teachers voted to strike Wednesday, when it was the government's constitutional duty to take a stand on the death sentences immediately and said Caramanlis did not act under pressure or obligation. It said that when Caramanlis was summoned to power last year by the collapsing junta, he undertook no commitments toward the outgoing rulers. Illinois schools start, but teachers strike many school is scheduled to start, unless their contract demands were met. Negotiations with the school board, however, were not completely cut off. A elm* ilar Situation also was reported in Harlem, where negotiations continued despite a strike vote. Chicago Strike School officials in Urbana told parents to send their children to school for the start of classes today, despite the strike by 270 teachers in that city. Supervisory personel will staff the classrooms for the district's 6,200 students, they indicated. Meanwhile, negotiations con* tinued in Chicago to avert a possible strike in the state's largest school district. The Chicago teachers are demanding limitatiwis on class size, the retention of more than 1,500 teaching positions cut in the proposed school budget and an unspecified salary increase. They have threatened to take a strike vote Sept. 2 if an acceptable contract agreement is not reached by Aug. 31. Fire damage set at $1,000 A fire that caused about $1,000 in damage at the home of Robert Brayton at 220 Virginia St. Monday was apparently caused by children playing with matches, firemen said."

The fire, which started in an upstairs bedroom, was put out about 15 minutes after firemen received the alarm. Suspend deputy in jail escape NEVADA, IA.

(AP) _ About 1,000 private pension plans, more than had been et- pected, have reported that they are unable to pay benefits guaranteed to thousands of retired persons, the Pension Ben* efit Guaranty Corp. said Monday. An additional 2,000 pension plans have been suspended since July 1, 1974, but.are solvent and able to make all required payments of benefits to retirees, the corporation said. For the 1,000 funds which are short of funds, the federal government must pick up the tab under the 1974 Employe Retirement Income Security Act. Bank official shot during holdup ST. LOUIS, MO.
