I say Good Grief! When a host of music lovers went (o our magnificent civic center hear Victor Nledtwleckt play what coaid have been a beautltnl con- cert, we were amazed to rind Ihe Instrument provided city In Its "elaborate andltorlnm ,'was' a wprii-out, wheezing clunker 'from- prohibition days. Witniworld famous artists coming (o perform .with 'our Philharmonic, how can we possibly stand the embarrass we have a really good. Sleinway or Baldwin grand? Or at least one of the better Japanese models? I! would last for decades. And know from experience that artists will play-on a good piano even when It.Is not when It's that or cancel the contract. Something must be done! Can you help? .A. "II really is a good says Civic Center Manager John Chancy. "It was performed on by Robert Porlney's sister, ;Arlene, who is a.well-known rising piano virtuoso and she said our piano was It's been completely reconditioned with new hammers, felts' and keys and Is as good a nlhe'foot grand as there is in town olher than Baldwin or Sleinway and adequate for most artists, Chancy thinks. He says performers have this option of using the hoiisc piano or having a piano of their choice delivered. Of. course, Ihe art- ist.pays Ihe rental. In view ol the fact that a new Steinway would inn bclwecn and and the piano Isn't used very much, Chaney doesn't see how such a purchase could be Justified.' Q. My ulster real cM. She's'a Bhut-ln hot ran still piece qnltis.'Sht lives hi California and asked me to help her find booklets or magazines that have mostly quilt patterns. Could yon help her? A. McCall's recently came out with ifjuilt pattern book that's sold at most hews', 'stands. carries a line of quilt pat- tern books called "Aunt Martha's." And Linda Daniels', -who does as'much quilting as anyone in-town, suggests the city library or McMurry library as an excellent source o( patterns. You might look through the card catalog, find, Ihe one's you wanl, then send .your sister the names. Maybe she lias a friend who could check out these books from a California library. Q. Where did Ft. Phantom gels Its name? A. Mrs. Ima.Gotten Jennings arid Dr. Uupert Richardson concocted a slory they believe will hold water. Many years ago soldiers were searching for a fort to pro- tect what few settlers were out here from the Indians. In the search they came upon a hill. Going up the hill it looked like a hill but when they go (o the top they found It flattened out. On the hill looking to the west, they saw a mirage. They didn't know what it was so they called it ghost. At first they named the fort, Ghost Town, but later decided, that was too common and changed it to Ft. Phantom. Q. In May 1972 my daughter and I were honored the Abilene Woman's dun filrl of the 'served turkey halls and boy were they delicious. As I remember they were about Ihe size of tennis balls, com- posed o( tnitey slices and something else hot I don't remember what. I'd love (o nave (hat recipe for tie bolt- Pays. A It wasn't turkey you ale, it was breast of capon Monte Carlo, otherwise known as gourmet chicken breast and there is no recipe. But Mrs. Henry Hich- ter, who manages the Woman's Club, will pass along a little secret. She buys them in boxes of 30 from Swift Compa- ny All you-have to do is roll them in.flour and bake in a buttered pan in the oven. Or dip them in batter and deep fry. Right before serving, pour healed, undiluted mushroom soup over the whole thing. Now if this isn't easy gourmet cooking, we don't know what is.
