I to the menus National cooking championship 331 Madison ave., new York 10017. 36 by Carlo Wolter there were still patches of Snow on the ground when i returned from new York and the Winter clean up work which i had hoped to escape had t even begun. In fact i was left alone with the greatest part of it when Charles was recalled by the forestry department for Spring conservation planting of red Pine seedlings in open Fields and on tree Bare slopes. Because of constant stooping he came Home evenings Bent like a sapling. But we would t have exchanged the calluses growing on our hands for the most exciting evening in the City. Nor could anything have replaced the fascinating experience of lady s motherhood. Lady had grown into a Glossy furred Silky feathered Beauty. She was Strong and healthy and we Felt that nothing could go wrong. One afternoon in May she retreated quietly to the tent it it Vered platform Charles had built for her in a Corner of the garage and by night our livestock had increased by seven one Pound Irish setters. Two hours later there were eight. Nothing happened during the next four hours. Eight was the score we thought. A guess that s All Quot i said to Charles a lady can have some warm milk now. She s lady drank hastily whining softly As she emptied the bowl. Then sweeping her Brood into a Corner with erne Brush of her Paw she settled Down to have another Pup. But the Puppy did t move. She nosed it and pushed it like a cat playing with a mouse. The Puppy however remained lifeless. A that one is dead Quot i said regretfully a a lets take it however As my hand reached for it we were privileged to witness How a dumb animal copes with the intricacies of birth. Guide Hook of Liechtenstein new York a de scrip be photo guide and map of the principality of Liechtenstein printed in three languages English German and French is available by writing to the Swiss National tourist office to West 49th St.,new York City or 661 Market Street san Francisco.

A fewer Man Days were lost As a result of work stoppages in new England during 1964 than in any year since the close of world War n. Wendell d. Macdonald regional director of the us. Department of labor s Bureau of labor statistics announced today that there were 273 strikes involving 63,930 workers and accounting for a loss of 700,000 Man Days Over the 12-month period. In Vermont there were 11 work stoppages involving 1,210 workers and 63,700 Idle Man Days. The excise slash by Jean Kassick lady moved the Puppy quickly to one Side. Then her front Paw shot out and tossed the Little body against the Wall. It was just like a doctor slapping a Newborn baby for the minute old Puppy cried loudly and darted for erne of his Mother s nipples. We knew nothing about raising dogs. As in gardening and Canning we consulted books on the subject. The books said puppies should be weaned at six weeks. But we weaned them at five. Maybe it was instinct. Because three Days before the weaning was completed lady suddenly grew ill and died. All that afternoon and night we watched helplessly As she slipped away despite a veterinarian s persistent efforts. We missed her terribly and the bewildered pups looked for their Mother everywhere. Luckily the new diet of Oatmeal pablum chopped beef diluted canned milk and eggs agreed with them. The pups dabbled about on unsteady legs falling Over each other. Playfully they grabbed a Long ear belonging to a brother or a sister and pulled it like a rubber band. They were comical As clowns. And they thrived. As they grew bigger they also grew harder to manage became More mischievous and eased the pain in our hearts for lady with their never ending antics. I la never forget the morning Charles let them in the House for the first time and 36 soft padded feet tumbled up the attic stairs and nine mahogany coloured pups bounced on my bed like Tennis balls licked my face pulled Down the covers bit my toes and snuggled up in my arms. And in time we became More and More attached to them. As a result we refused Many a Sale because the offered Home seemed unsatisfactory and i shed big tears whenever a Little setter departed with a new owner. We sold them All but one. Green Mountain lady was the image of her Mother. So we kept her. Butcher boy however resented her and growled whenever she came near him. But Little lady did t mind. She fraternize with the cats instead knowing that Butcher boy would fall for her sooner or later. Continued next week Eva starts to raise funds for Welcome Center Montpelier a statewide fund drive was organized this week to help raise Money to build a Vermont Welcome and information Center on the interstate Highway near Brattleboro. chairmen Are former state sen. James l. Oakes of Brattleboro and town rep. Lawrence e. Franklin of Guilford. Oakes said the project is spearheaded by the greater Vermont association and that division chairmen of the fund drive will set a goal and target Date at a meeting on Rutland july 7. No division chairman is listed for the Bennington area. The first place so that did no to count. I had been thinking of a Black Cadillac with Pink Interior myself but that darn tax held me Back every time. Actually the Only two that Ever bothered me particularly were the ones on handbags and on cosmetics. If they had labelled them As a taxes to raise Money to support the government Quot i might not have noticed. After All one does get conditioned to taxes in this Day and age does no tone but when they went and labelled them As a luxury Quot taxes that hit me right in the female solar plexus. A of i ask you what is so luxurious about a handbag where is a woman supposed to carry her stuff the women a ready to Wear Industry has never been kindly disposed toward pockets. Some years they put them All Over blouses jackets skirts Coats and Slacks but when you get them Home you discover they Are All fake. Other years they make them a mandatory fashion note but they Are either so Small that they would make an ant feel Claustrophobic or they Are positioned with the unerring judgment of an inebriated Grasshopper a up on a shoulder or Down around the hem. In All cases the Page of a fashion Magazine showing a dress with pockets will be followed by another Page warning women not to put anything in their pockets lest they either spoil the line automated . Bigger buying Power super duper Market depot Street Bennington it. Of the garment or make unsightly bulges. What can really make you mad is when some a Friend Quot says you should take the stuff out of your pockets because its making an unsightly bulge a and you Don t have anything in the pockets to begin with they be never considered taxing men s trousers pockets and that s the same thing As a woman s purse. Well almost. A Csc and cosmetics. A luxury they had to be kidding. If we women had gotten together we probably could have repealed that erne years ago. A legislative sit in of a few Hundred women All without makeup would have probably convinced the solons of the absolute necessity of cosmetics. After All its not for ourselves that we smear that gook on our faces it s for the rest of the world that has to look at us. On the occasions that i have forgotten my lipstick i have had to fight off the offers of do goobers who insisted that they should Call an ambulance or at least a doctor and that certainly i should not be allowed out in Public in my weakened condition. When people just look at you and then walk off shaking their Heads it does make you wonder. A a a a i have no idea what actually makes the Economy run in this country of ours but of the president thinks that saving me a dime on my lipstick will help i m All for it.
