"This kitchen," explains Mrs. Gaber, "was built around the needs of our family. We do a lot of entertaining in our home, both family and friends. And I have spent over 20 years planning just the type of kitchen that would be best suited to the way we lire." The walls and cabinets of the kitchen are of. knotty pine, with ewnler &nd baeksniash o* oatmeal yellow tile trimmed in a shade of blue that matches Mrs. Caber's onion-patterned Meissen china. Occasional insets of figured Dutch tile are set in the backsplash. The floor covering is blue Vinyl tile, that reduces upkeep to a minimum. One side of the room is devoted to counter space with cabinets above, extending the full 20 feet of the room, ana continuing along tie end wail for several feet until it joins the refrigerator. The counter top and cabinets below are divided into different work areas, each space-engineered for the materials and utensils that are used for that particular job. The cleaning or sink area has a dishwasher, with a pine cabinet front, which was ordered especially to conform with the rest of the cabinets. The double sink is in blue, and 1 immediately above, a recessed double glass and toothbrush dispenser which is used here for soap, sponges, brushes, etc. In addition to the garbage disposal!, the underneath cabinet has an automatic pop-up garbage container. The next cabinet doors conceal metal drawer units which are used for vegetable storage and detergents. The doors have metal louvers for ventilation. The cooking area has eight built- in surface units, with pull-out drawers, both shallow and deep, for storage of cooking utensils. The units, as well as all other electrical appliances used, are a General Electric product An object of much beauty, as well as being very practical, is the antique spoon holder on the wall spece above the cooking -units. The holder is of onion-patterned Meissen, with cooking spoons and ladela of the same pattern. There is also a wooden salt box, and a china coffee mill of a Dutch pattern. The next 42 inches of counter top consist of a full size butcher's iblock, and on this is kept the meat slice-. Underneath cabinets are metal lined, and used for bread and sugars.

N T K\V YORK— UP —Give chicken the same care in the picnic basket that you'd give other perishable foods. This all-time favorite for outdoor meals deserves refrigeration, right up to sen-ing time when possible. Experts advise that ihe chicken be fried early in the day or the night before, to give it ample time to chill completely in the refrigerator. Leave under refrigeration until ready to go to the picnic grounds; insulate the package -well and plan, to serve ivithin four hours. Prepare chicken with less than the normal amount of watching, by "frying" ^n the oven. Dip the cut-up pieces in seasoned flour (add paprika to the flour, if you want a golden color). Melt Vt. pound of butter in a shallow baking- pan in a hot oven (400 degrees). P,eniove the pan, and put the floured pieces in it, turning them to coat them with the fat Bake skin side down in «. single layer in the hot oven for 30 minutes. Turn, and bake another 30 minutes, or until tender. Jewelry Gets Muscles Of Stainless Steel NEW YOR.K —UP— Costume jewelry is getting "muscles." Xow you can buy jewelry whose wearing strength is increased with stainless steel wiring instead of the traditional silk o r nylon thread. New York designer Judith McCann. uses the fine steel wire — 12 wires make one string— for both necklaces and earrings. She said the steel wire has a dual advantage. Necklaces won't break even with long years of wear. And the malleable steel improves the drape of the necklaces. Keyed To Fashion Shoes for spring come in colors that not only match handbags and gloves but are also keyed to the leading fashions and colors in dresses, suits and coats. butcher's block is a built in can opener, which is removable for cleaning. The last area is the baking; area. A paper dispenser is recessed just above counter level, which holds the three papers—foil, wax and absorbent This area has a built-in flour sifter, and an upper cabinet is divided into sections for baking dLshes. The bottom cabinet houses the electric mixer, attached to a shelf which, swings up to counter height and locks securely. The corner cabinet in this section has three revolving shelves for spices and other ingredients. The long counter ends by the refrigerator, which is a small size commercial box, fifty-seven inches wide, with double doors and plenty of storage space. All the cabinets above the counter are used for storage of dishes, utensile and supplies that are necessary for that particular area. In the (fining area. Mrs. Gabcr has a round table with captain's chairs, grouped under an unusaal handpainted chimney lamp with prisms. In this alcove, one wall is devoted to cabinet and counter epace, that continue* back around to the door of the utility room. China and crystal are kept in the upper cabinets, and underneath are long drawers for linens, place mats, etc. There are also especially designerf racks for storage of large trays and platters. The utility room opens directly off the kitchen, and is used for baking, freezing and laundry. A large cabinet unit holds aupplies for freezing, and some of the larger roasting utensils. Two ovens are ibuilt in the wall next to the unit On the other side of the ovens is the laundry equipment, a washer and drj'er, with cabinets above for laundry supplies. On the opposite side of the room, is a deep pantry for storing supplies, an upright deep freezer, and a large water heater. Mrs.'Gaber has planned the perfect kitchen for herself, because it is designed to fit her family's needs and way of life. It will be an inspiration to all who visit it, in. helping them to achieve their perfect kitchen, for their way of life. Luncheon Given By Mrs. Opryshek ilrs.

Secret pal gifts were exchanged. Hostesses included Mrs. K. W. Opryshek and Mrs. Dave Oliver. Next meeting- will be in the home of Mrs. G. W. Laughiin, 510 East Republic. Storage Of Linens Should Be Well Planned AMES, Ia.—<UV-The time needed for care and repair of household linens can be reduced if storage of these items is carefully planned. Iowa State College suggests rolling small articles such as doilies, dresser scarves and table mats on tubes to prevent creases and to utilize deep, narrow shelf space. To provide extra storage space In closets where the shelves are placed far apart, half shelves can be easily fastened along the sides or at the back of the closet and will not interfere with the visibility of the linens on the deeper shelves. Pillow cases, napkins, dishtowels and potholders will fit easily on the narrower shelve*, about eight inches deep, and are easy to set, take out and replace. Additional space in drawers which are unnecessarily <3ccp can be used by adding a liftout drawer. If glider strips are mounted In the interior of deep drawers, tray drawers, not over four inches deep, will fit inside and provide more room.

The Dabncy-Goodwin chapter was awarded first prize for the second year for being toe most outstanding chapter with under 40 membership in the district. Mrs. J. N. Grissett discussed the transportation, problems in Civil Defense. In case Of a real atom bomb attack with its subsequent fallout, Mrs. Grissett said, the best safety measure would be to remove the whole population as far from the danger zone as possible. Civil Defense officials would be informed of the direction and speed that fallout was being swept by the wind, so all transportation would be directed as far away from danger as possible. The Baytown vicil defense will hold an evacuation of the schools sometime In April and volunteers are needed to evacuate the children. Without fully organized plans for transportation, there can be no adequate evacuation nor would civil defense authorities learn how fast traffic can move in tiine of disaster. . . ' ' Mrs. Grissett pointed out that each car offered may be the moans of saving many lives. Each volunteer will be used according to her capabilities, Even Inexperienced people can do a tremendous job. "This work is a personal duty as well as a civic one for while we help remove other children from danger, other mothers arc doing the same for our children," she said, "We live in a very vulnerable location, which necessitates a more thorough knowledge of and training for any position we are asked to fill. Self reliance in the time of crises, the ability and desire to help others who are in danger, the conyquering of panic and hysteria are the ends to be sought as we strenthen our individual and collective defences and prepares for the tests that the future may hold," Mrs. Grissct concluded.
