BACDtt ftVNDAT BmiLITIN laly t9, 198§ See. S. P«ffe 8 ^Young Mother Has Eyes on Met ATLANTA—An Atlanta housewife has traveled the equivalent of twice around the world—and had three babies— during the past four years on the road to a singing career. About once every six weeks Mrs. Eric H. Heuermann Jr. makes a 1,700-mile round trip by plane or train to pursue her music studies for five days in New York under Ludwig Fabrl. Mrs. Heuermann (pronounced Hoy-er-man), who uses her maiden name, Patricia Calhoun when she sings on stage, says her goal is to perform with the Metropolitan Opera or "with some other big company. I feel I should do something with my voice," she adds, "after all the work I've put into it Lullabies "I've taken time out from my studies to have my children," the 25-year-old soprano says. "I've had lots of experi- -ence in singing lullabies." She made two appearances in New York last fall with the American Symphony Orchestra, and reports modestly that they were very successful. Now she is rehearsing for the leading roles in two operas to be produced later this year by the Long Island Opera Company in New York — MImi in "La Boheme" and Nedda in "Pagliacci." Mrs. Heuermann admits it is hard for her to leave her husband, a salesman, and their children when she goes to New York to study. "It's worse on me than it is on them," she says. Her mother, her husband and his parents look after the children, and • maid stays wHh the youngsters during the day. Pelletler Protege When she was 16 Mrs. Heuermann auditioned for Wilfred Pelletler, former conductor of the Metropolitan Opera, and became his protege. After graduation from high school she entered the Curtis Instit- tute of Music at Philadelphia, a scholarship school which en­ rolls only a small number of carefully selected students. Mrs. Heuermann had not quite finished school when she decided to get married in 1954. "I was supposed to go to Milan, Italy, to study," she says, "but my husband couldn't get a job there, so we came to Atlanta. I was able to complete my studies here and go back to Curtis for my exams so that I could graduate." In the meantime, Lee was born. Commuting "For a while," Mrs. Heuermann says, "I commuted be­ tween Atlanta and Philadelphia to continue studying with my teachers there. Then I started going to New York where I was coached by Mr. Pelletler. "After several years he sug gested that I study with Lud wig Fabrl—and that's what I'm doing now." "It's hard to combine rearing a family and studying voice," she says. "I'm trying not to neglect either of them, and my husband Is a wonderful help. He's not very musical himself, but he is in favor of my studies." Treaf Beachwear fo Gentle Sudsing A trim figure, chic swim togs, a sunny day and waves lapping the shore paint the perfect summer picture. But gals, if you want that picture to remain lovely for the entire season, consider soapsuds as your greatest ally. By treating your beachwear with loving care, you'll maintain its fresh color, fit and durability. Salt water and sand can have a devastating effect - on your swimsult If it isn't washed with warm soap or detergent suds after every wearing. Even chlorinated, pool water and the mineral-bearing fresh water of lakes can ruin the fabric of your bathing suit. And grains of sand can cut the fibers if they aren't washed out. Most beach clothes are made from washable material. You can even get fabric beach shoes that can be scrubbed clean with a sudsy brush. Your beach bag needs cleanliness care, too. It will get dirty and dull on the outside from being tugged around in the sand or on the lakeshore. And the picnic leftovers and damp bathing suits soil the inside and often leave unpleasant odors. If your beach bag is a straw one, it will probably have a plastic lining, and that can be sponged off so that it will be always fresh and clean. Daylight Hours Best for 'Orange' Make-Up Hot orange shades of cosmetics may turn you Into a charmer during the day when natural light complements the color. However, it is best to switch to a new hue for night wear since lights add yellow tones to the face. OPEN MON. & FRI. 8 30 A A M. to H P M.
