Turtle Neck The experts at a homemaking Institute have designed versatile turtle-neck ponchos.Iful A poncho for an adult takes two large bath towels and one hand towel. One for a child takes two hand towels and a washcloth. Wliether you use striped or solid towels, lay the two In front of you one over the other, horizontally. For medium heavy material, use a heavy duty mercerized 40 to 60 cotton thread. Sewing teachers recommend a size 16 needle for the machine and a size 10 machine stitch setting for straight sewing. Stitching by their families." Talent One of the housewives said, "I think college is a waste of money If children are forced to go. Maybe they have a wonder- talent for working with BUENOS AIRES— im —Sylvia Kersehbaum, an attractive 17-year-old who likes swimming^ dancing and singing, is one of South America's brightest piano prospects. Maestros here rank Sylvia among the best piano talents of her generation. She started her musical studies when she was 6 and at 9 made her first public appearance at the piano. "At that time, I wrote my own compositions," she says, and I was terribly excited when I heard one of them performed on the radio for the first tlnie." Highest Honors Sylvia graduated from the Argentine National Conserva- torlum with a first prize (highest honors) when she was only 14. From then on she has been winning nearly every music competition In Buenos Aires. Last year Sylvia reached a high spot in her still young career when she was Invited to play at the world famous Colon Theater. Such famous pianists as Jose Iturbi, ,Leon ard Bernstein and Bachauss have played at the Colon, con sidered the finest concert hall in South America.- Acclaimed by Critics Sylvia performed so well last year that she was given a contract from the Colon for the Buenos Aires musical season which has recently started. Her initial performance this year — Beethoven's First Piano Concerto, accompanied by the Buenos Aires City Philharmonic Orchestra—was favorably received by the critics. One critic observed that her interpretation of Beethoven was "filled .with vigor and sonority with absolute technical musicality." Another said that she performed "as a lion showing its claws." Strenuous Work Sylvia says playing piano concerts is strenuous work and a performer must keep herself In top physical condition. That she does by swimming and taking dancing and singing lessons. Sylvia comes from a musical family. Her father, a professional photographer who Immigrated here many yeari ago from Germany, plays the violin and her lister, a year younger, is already a concert pianist herself.
