Mrs. Baian Brings Od Armenian Methods-of Cooking toTTs Artistic Hands Needed ' for Preparation of Foods By Judith Fawcett Mrs. Artin Balian, 1215 Walton Ave., brought some of the old methods of cooking with her when she came to the United States in 1928. Some of the methods used in her Armenian cooking are difficult to explain, she says, and top. Makes two 3-laycr doughs.

Mrs. Balian's son and two daughters also take part in church activities and are all •ctiv* in the choir. Charles, 30, is a chemist for Tee-Pak and Co., in Chicago, working in research and development. Ht is talented as a pianist and li choirmaster for the Association of Armenian Church Choirs of America. Margaret, 22, is corresponding secretary of the AACCA. Pat, 16, is a junior at William Horlick High School. Her brother comes from Chicago every weekend, she says, to sing in the church choir. Although Mrs. Balian was too young to remember the First World War, relatives and friends have told her many things about activities during 1914-15. Her father was a priest, apparently very talented in music, Mrs. Balian says. His education was both Turkish and Armenian. As war became a reality, the family started moving. They spent some time in Damascus, Syria, then returned to Turkey. In Constantinople (Istanbul) • pickpocket stole their money. During the time they spent in Turkey the family was divided and some members moved to the United States. Mrs. Balian later lived In should be about 40 layers. Add Lebanon, then moved to Egypt nuts twice — first after about where a niece and nephew still 15 layers and again after 30th live. Egypt was'the last coun- " try she lived in before coming to Racine where her brother and sister resided. "I haven't really done much," she says. "I just got married and had all." While her mother fried Boreg, Pat explained that "it seems like you're eating a lot of air, but it just melts in your mouth. At least my mother's does."

At right, she fries Boreg, a cheese dish served primarily for special guests or during a holiday season. The Armenian recipes, brought to this country by Mrs. Balian in 1928, require much use of the hands—both in mixing and forming the Trim, Tailored Lines fo Express New Look in College Wardrobe —Journ«l-TlmM Photos dough. A stick is often used but results are better when the dough Is spread as thin as waxed papcr—wlth the hands. Besides keeping busy in the kitchen, Mrs. Balian Is active in church affairs and serves as chairman of the Ladies Auxiliary at St. Mesrob Armenian Apostolic Church. Her three children sing In the church choir. What is the new look in col- pear in party dresses and lege wardrobes? It starts with trimmed in velvet or lace! the silhouette and embraces the finish of a cuff or the width of r1'"'„,"° IT" '••"Ply »«ted. ..k. on . p.,m. from St. Louis, city of young fashion. The new look is tailored, trim and, even, dapper. Frequently it pivots around a "snatch" from the boys. Typical is the rise in the popularity of vests. They're back as an important accessory to the costume, designers say, whether worn over one of the popular shirtwaist dresses, or one of the many separates that extend the usefulness of co-ordinated sportswear. Details The shirt collar with four-in- hand tie; the boys' coat — straight and unbelted with oversize pockets; the pull-over top as big and bulky as a man's sweat shirt; leather used in coats and as trimming; the mating of western pants with sissy shirts — all these are details that give the college wardrobe a new look. These are the kind of clothes that look undated and that will take four years on campus in stride. St. Louis designers Interpret this look of tailored trimness in many fabrics — from beautiful Herbert Meyer cottons with the look of silk to blends of orlon and wool that melt in the hand, they are so soft to the touch! There are tweeds of every type on and these tweeds are used not only for coats and suits, but ap- of elegance through touches of fur in trimming, all-over embroidery on wool, and the beauty of color on quality fabrics in familiar weaves. Ablaze with color that rlvaKs the beauty of autumn's leaves, these new clothes need little added to make them an expression of your special and individual fashion credo.

Dress Features Buffon-On Scarf Have scarf, can travel! One of the interesting fashion ideas among designers is the tailored dress with button- on scarf in the fabric of the dress. Whether in a cotton knit — or in one of the colorful tweeds, the idea suggests the "do-it-your-own-way" that the modern young woman likes in her clothes. Without the scarf, the round neckline is a pretty foil for handkerchief scarf or necklace. Salad is summer's darling, so crisp, so cool, so delicately tinted with its fruits and veg- etabie.? fresh from bin or garden. These delicious things yield refreshment for the spirit as well as for the body, and they somehow make the heat of a summer's day drone less at our doorstep. If salad has a shortcoming, it is (hat It is sometimes a little "light," not quite filling enough to satisfy at a meal. What to serve to fill that empty corner? We think you'll find Banana Quick Bread a delicious accompaniment to salads. It is a moist, stay-fresh, quick bread with all the fragrance and comfort of a home-baked product. The fresh banana to make this bread Is mashed to permeate every least and last crumb with real banana flavor. There is a delicate complement in matching this delicately - flavored bread to salads — a Tightness that you'll like. Best of all, Banana Quick Bread keeps, in refrigerator or freezer, to serve more than once with salads. Toast it, too, for a special treat.

In young fash- Ion there are many versions of the little black crepe dress — pretty trans -season dresse.s that bridge the months tn Christmas. One designer uses bands of .satin at the neckline and waistline to emphasize the contrast in texture. Others carry lace trimming or gleaming bead touches. New among the fashions in black is the theatre suit n rayon faille — or the faille costume with jacket worn over a sheath dress. glossy, 300 strokes by hand or 2 minutes at medium speed on electric mixer.
