Five years ago she left formal channels in the education establishment, lier aim: To accomplish outside the establishment necessary change but faster. She buys and sells companies, mostly in the education field. Last March, for example, when Kids magazine was on the verge of bankruptcy, Dr. Brown bought it.

Nothing makes a kid read on like seeing his or her name in print. For females inching their way to the top, the graduate of Mount Holyoke college has more than the executive woman newsletter on the fire, Through a series of regional dinners she hopes to establish a network of women executives who can —■ and will — do business with one another. “The aim is to establish a « nucleus within the female business community which has strength and unity — and within which women can freely trade business, financial help, sales leads and contacts," Dr. Brown said.

The prediction was made at a seminar here by Aaron M. Altschul, a Georgetown university professor of community medicine and international health. The meeting was sponsored by Miles Laboratories, Elkhart, Ind. Altschul and Dr Walter A. Compton, chairman and chief executive officer, said these vegetable protein substitutes are beneficial to both health and pocketbook. They beef up the protein content of meat but are free ♦rom fat and cholesterol. Children who cannot tolerate milk have been raised entirely on soy products with no difference noted between them (iron who cannot tolerate milk based products. Altschul said. According to Dr. Compton, one acre of land that can provide 500 |M)unds of soybeans for consumption as vegetable protein can yield at best only 50 pounds of animal protein. Selling Well With the meat industry predicting price increases for beef and pork during the rein a i n d e r of the winter, cheaper substitutes already are selling well. Patties mixes — ground beef containing hydrated, or reconstituted, textured vegetable protein — are available in many supermarkets and independent groceries where they are said to outsell pure ground beef by impressive percentages. Textured vegetable protein mixes for combination dishes such as chili, meat loaf and spaghetti sauce are in regional distribution. One pouch of a soy product added as the label directs to one pound of ground meat, makes 2.1 ounces or one ounce less than 14 pounds. The soy extender’s protein content is 53 percent, which is higher than that of the meat it re-places. The manufacturer says it should be handled like ground meat alone, once the mixture is prepared It can be refrigerated safely for a day, or cooked and frozen to be reheated later. Here are two recipes using new textured soy protein products. Apple sauce meat loaf made with beef pattie mix containing hydrated textured vegetable protein makes 12 servings, enough for one hot meal and cold sandwiches for a second one. Meat Loaf In n large bowl, mix 3 eggs, slightly beaten, with I cup finely chopped onion. I tablespoon of salt, \a teaspoon of pepper, 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce and I cups of apple sauce. Add I cups of pattie mix and combine lightly but well. Shape into a loaf, mounding the top. in a greased 9-Bv-6-inch loaf pan. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven I to 14 hours, until loaf is done and top is browned. Cool IO minutes before removing from pan and slicing. Chili Apio Chili apio containing I pound of ground beef, I 1 65-ounce pouch of textured soy protein and kidney beans makes 8 protein-rich servings. Mix the pouch of soy product with % cup of water as label directs. Then mix it with beef as label directs. Brown the meat-soy mixture in a lightly oiled large pot or Dutch oven. Add 14 teaspoons of salt, 4 teaspoon each of ground popper and chili powder and 4 cup of chopped onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender. Add 2 (15-ounce) cans of tomato juice, 4 cup each of chopped celery and chopped green pepper, 2 (1-pound) cans of red kidney beans, drained, and a dash or two of hot pepper sauce. Simmer uncovered about 14 hours. Makes 8 cups. By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: I fell in love with a guy I’M call Moorhead All he loved was his car. He lost his job and I finished making his car payments. I also pajd some other hills for him and even paid back some money trowed. My friends told me I was crazy, but I was stubborn and i wouldn’t listen Moorhead got a job and now1 that he is working he is going with another girl and people say he is going to marry her. I feel like a fool but what can I do? How can I get my money back without my parents knowing'' I don’t want to go to court and I don’t have any kind of written “ID U." from this guy. A FOOL DEAR FOOL:    Unless you have something in writing, you can’t prove that Motorhead owes you anything. Call it the '"tuition" you paid for your education and try to learn from it. Sorry. ♦ * * DEAR ABBY: I have lived here for 30 years and my husband is a respected member of the community, so I am unable to explain why I should have this problem. I first noticed it in the depart-j merit store where I shop regularly. The minute I enter, a (buzzer goes off, and the store detectives appear and start watching me. Also, I notice the salespeople look at me suspiciously, so I don’t dare even handle any merchandise. I went to the dime store and noticed the same thing happened there, so I called the manager and asked him why I ; was being watched. He very I sarcastically said I wasn’t, but if I had a clear conscience I had nothing to worry about. I left immediately without buying what I had come for. I now get the same feeling when I go the supermarket. I’ve never stolen anything, but peo-I pie keep watching me as though1 I were a thief Should I bring suit against these people who are harassing me? I now order everything on the telephone because walking! into a store is so humiliating. INNOCENT; DEAR INNOCENT; Ifs entire-ly possible that you are not being harassed, but that your imagination is working overtime. If you haven’t discussed this with your doctor, you should. An imagined harassment is as damaging as a real one. 3ft YEARS AGO William Allen White, 75, known as the “Sage of Emporia," died H HARDWICK Th* Finest Nam* in Kitchen RANGES See our largest selection of gas or electric models. tilt ll* • • 'n .*10" Chalet * Cook •( now . . .
