Joiirneys to Pleasure ... Adventures in Caribbean Fooc By Frances Koltun One of the Caribbean's most delightfuPexperiences is the sweet or hot or fragrant food that comes from the mingling of native and colonial traditions— as evocative as the sound of the steel drums. The same traveler who searches out the best rillettes in the French chateau country, or eats octopus by the waterfront of a Sicilian town, neglects the wonderful and unusual food specialties on the Caribbean islands. At dinner, pass up the steak and potatoes at your large hotel for something more adventurous—or, while your husband is. on the golf course (his tastes may be more conservative than yours), scout up a real island lunch. You may come back with some fine new pages for your recipe book—and some original, successful dishes for parties and parties to come. If you're planning a trip to one of the islands this winter, here, then are some gastronomic delights to look for, sometimes on your hotel menu, most times in tiny restaurants. Exotic Foods In Puerto Rico, where Spanish colonial architecture A typical Caribbean buffet luncheon as served at a Jamaica hotel. Africans, East Indians, and Chinese, all of whom have something to contribute to the island's gastronomy.

While you're on the sunny Casual Sweater Appropriate for Parties NEW YORK—(NEA)—Not all parties call for ruffles and elaborate hairdos. A party at the home of a friend more often calls for a simple wool dress or a soft, pretty sweater and matching skirt in white. Aside from being toasty warm, the new sweaters offer real dazzle. One hooded cardigan has a detachable hood! of lace with the lace repeated on the sweater in appliques.; Angora is back in fashion favor. The white angora sweater is the nearest thing to the softness of a snowfall. And in this day of co-ordinates, it's easy to blend or match a skirt to a sweater, j Such sweaters aren't con-j fined, of course, to such evenings. With the lace hood removed, the cardigan can; go places daytimes, too. The dazzling clip or earrings you'd wear at night can be' replaced next day by tailored gold. The classic cardigan set is, this winter, anything but classic in styling. A straight, chic little jacket tops a sleeve-^ less sweater. Together, they make a great team. And the will not have even one convulsion. But should your child experience such an attack, call your doctor at once and co-operate with him as soon as he can take over. Keep calm during the at­ tack and afterward. A convulsion is not a disease, it is an outward sign of a disturbance in the brain waves. (A sudden high fever is a common cause.) As children grow older and the brain matures.

Oberst and Fletcher D. Slater. Children do not die or suffocate in seizures. Most children, they state, you could have a fine Span-;t'ny ish paella, which includesjeggs practically everything edible;; chicken, fish, lobster, shrimp, clams, and assorted vegetables. Jamaica's fiery soups are a meal unto themselves, and after one trip you'll never be able to serve Mr. Lipton's gentle noodle soup without extensive embellishment. Pep­ perpot soup, as explosive as it sounds, combines beef, salt pork, and spinach with a number of vegetables and spices. Pumpkin soup eviscerates the usual jack o' lantern, adds to it onions, chicken broth, and whipped cream; red pea soup comes from kidney beans seasoned with salt pork or a ham bone.
