The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD January 9, 1974 Actors undisciplined as theatre changes LOS ANGELES (AP) Ann Blyth hasn't always played good little girl at 16 there was her movie role in Mildred Pierce as a sexy charmer who led to the murder of her mother's hus- band. That role in the late one of the 30 or so movies she something to the imagination, instead of spell- ing it out as they do now." It is one reason she seldom sees a script nowadays she could accept. "I haven't yet played in anything I'd be ashamed to let my children see and I'm not about to change. Three of her five children are teen-agers; two are in college. Looking far younger than her work years might sug- gest, big-eyed and reddish- haired, Miss Blyth is happiest talking about her 20-year marriage to Dr. James McNulty, the children and the. theatre that has been a part of her life since she began sing- ing at 5 on radio. STILL ACTIVE Although most people now think of her as retired, she has been active in theatre, supper clubs and television for the last 10 years. In her opinion the theatre has changed because the players have. 'There is a whole new breed of You cannot blame them as much as their parents or others who influenced them during their formative yean.- The attitude was let than do as they like, good or bad, so now they have the ability but they don't know how to channel ii. If everything were to cease for them, they wouldn't have anything to fall back on." Discipline is important for anyone, she said, but actors really need it. Whether her own children choose acting careers is up to them; mean- while they have been pro- vided with a foundation of love and discipline which will help them in whatever they do. WORK FOR GOALS "Our children have a sense of responsibility and they work for special things they want whether it is new skis or something else." Discipline has made them accept her work in stride, too. They think of her as "mommy who also works." "I took the girls to Mil- waukee to watch me perform in South Pacific and Maureen, 18, observed, 'Gosh, you really do work hard.' They show no desire to be involved although Kathleen, 16, is especially talented." The older girls make their own clothes and have worked DO YOU HAVE THAT Overstuffed FEELING AFTER THE HOLIDAYS?

I would much rather have youngsters explode so I know what they are thinking than to have them keep it all bottled up." She feels religion is impor- tant because youngsters need that kind of direction, but she and her husband are prepared if they decide to give it they won't push them or they might drive them in the oppo- site direction. Recently they rushed home from a football game to hear Kathleen sing and play at her first guitar mass. IMPORTANT TO CHILD "Some parents miss the op- portunity. If a young person wants a parent to accompany him to a religious service, no matter what the faith, a par- ent should go. Another week might be just too late. They might become absorbed in un- fortunate substitutes." Miss Blyth and her husband are engaged in many chari- table enterprises involving children. The principal one right now is the right-to-life hot line. "Jim and other doctors are offering their services to women who will have their babies rather than abort them. There is no longer a stigma about unwed mothers and many people are keeping their babies, but the abortion rate is horrendous and some young women have died. Shoes need proper fit OTTAWA (CP) As many youngsters spend all their waking hours in running shoes, proper fit is essential to growing feet, reminds the Consumers' Association of Canada. The Association ad- vises parents that the correct width of a shoe must be en- sured when purchasing footwear for children Antique cookbook collection covers nearly two centuries By PHYLLIS HANBS Christian Science Monitor CHICAGO, III The American cuisine is the result of a kinetic people, always on the move, stantly changing, and tremendously inventive, according to Louis Szathmary, chef-owner of The Bakery, a Chicago restaurant, and author of "The Chef's Secret Cook Book." "What I feel is the beginning of American food, is the spadework, which was already done by the pre-Columbian Indian, his methods of planting and cooking corn, beans, squash, and the other foods native to North he said. "It's not so much a matter of foods brought here by the immigrants of other countries. It is the result of people who have been moving since the first New Englanders gave up their farms and expanded more and more into the West. As they moved they took their cooking utensils with them, they developed new methods that were more convenient. Through in- novations in transportation and refrigeration, raw foods became available all over the United States, all year round. "Constant movement and mobility, that most characteristic American trait, is in evidence in all my early American he said. VOLUMES Mr. Szathmary's collec- tion of books about foods contains volumes, many in foreign languages. Over are cookbooks printed in the United States, and of these volumes, he has chosen 27 to be reproduced in a series called "Cookery Amer- American cuisine 19th century bakery from antique cookbook icana." "The way people have cooked, the utensils they used, and the way they have preserved their foods are key elements in telling the story of the social and cultural development of a he said. "I call my series an American history, without bullets. "I have carefully chosen from my antique cookbook collection not necessari- ly the ones that are the oldest and rarest, but those that are most significant to give a cross section of American cooking cover- ing nearly two centuries in time." Probably no other source gives such a concise and entertaining glimpse of domestic life, manners, customs, and socio- economic conditions of the Midwest in the 1870's and 1880's as in the first pages of the Kansas Home Cook Book, one of the books Mr. Szathmary has reprinted in the series. ON THE GO When it was first publish- ed in 1884, Kansas City was still technically, if not geographically, part of the West if not the Wild West. The nation was on the go, rolling westward and moving upward. Families were upgrading -and advancing faster than ever before, and because the country was on the- move, one of the most im- portant questions was "how to treat unexpected company." Mr. Szathmary's choice of antique cookbooks includes the best from women's church groups, clubs, and early societies. A YMCA cookbook of 1925 mentions such new things as the gas oven, then beginning to appear in Northwestern farm com- munities. The new electric refrigerator was the sub- ject for a cookbook in 1928, and in 1894 when America was looking for a better way of life a large silver manufacturer thought it worthwhile to publish a lovely book with some 100 recipes on chafing-dish cooking. "Fifty Years of Prairie Cooking" includes some famous old books such as "The Priscilla Cookbook" of 1954, a Dorcas Society Cookbook, 1939, a Patriotic Food Show collection, of recipes and dtmonitn- tions of 1911, and a 1903 book of "choice recipes of the ladies of Des Moines, Iowa." INDIAN DISHES "Choctaw Indian Dishes" published in Tuskahoma, 1955, and "The Indian Cookbook" by the Indian Women's Club of Tulsa are interesting cookbooks and are included in the volume of Southwestern Cookery along with early cookbooks by the Dallas Junior League and the Colfax Country Club Women. "Actually, many of these hundreds of recipes can be easily used Mr. Szathmary said. "But for those who are not so adven- turous I have updated three in each volume. This is part of the fun of ex- periencing the flavor of old-fashioned foods while at the same time getting a glimpse into the life-style of other times." Mr. Szathmary has a degree in psychology from the University of Budapest, has written several religious books, and has taught in New England where he lived for several years. He has spent most of his life working with food, and this fall he will complete a book of his own on American cooking which will have 40 pages of pic- tures, 40 pages of text, and 40 pages of recipes. It will be very heavily based on this series, he said. Now in 15 volumes, the Cookery Americana series has 27 titles (Arno Press, New York, and isxa fine collection for peo- ple who like old cookbooks and Americana, and who don't have the time to hunt or the money to invest in antique volumes.

Originally Were 39.95 to x By AILEEN PAUL Christian Science Monitor American quiltmaking was one of the earliest recycling ventures in the United States. When the quilts brought over by the early colonists needed repair, the patching was frequently done with bits of fabric from discarded clothes or other quilts beyond repair. The results were the original patchwork quilts. The European quilting tradition was continued by American women although materials, cotton, wool, and silk, were scarce. As the patchwork pattern started to dominate their homes, women began to make new quilts with irregular and unusual shapes, stitching patches together without the use of background material. Color and gaiety were important in houses that had the barest of furnishings, and the patchwork quilts supplied that. The success of a recent Patchwork and Appliqued Quilts ex- hibit at Barnegat, on the New Jersey shore, points up the rising interest in this early craft. Among the 80 quilts exhibited was a wide range of patterns and fabrics from the earliest "Star made by Elizabeth Paul Forman in 1841 and exhibited by Margaret Godley Conrad, to the latest "Just made by Amy Kaplan of Harvey Cedars this year. The unusual exhibit was sponsored by the Barnegat Historical Society. NO AWARDS No awards were given, nor did it seem necessary to its sponsors or those attending, for each quilt was obviously an ex- pression of the individual maker's creativity and ingenuity. Pioneer women carried their quilt patterns along as they journeyed west. Only names were changed, as shown by a brown and beige patterned quilt, called "Ship's Wheel" in the East and "Prairie Star" in the West. It was made in 1885 by Mary Anna Spraque of Manahawkin and exhibited by Gladys A. Cox. The album or friendship quilts were of special was presented to the Historical Society of Barnegat by the fami- ly of the late Martha Carter Cranmer. Many names written on the blocks of the quilt are those of the old Quaker families of Barnegat. One signature, that of John and Charlotte Tilton, shows the date of 1849. Another album quilt was a "money making" quilt. On this striking dark quilt, signatures were autographed in rose, gold, shades of blue, and many other colors. It was made in 1903 by the residents of Manahawkin as a fund-raising enterprise, and was exhibited in this collection by Edna Hazelton. MEMORIES The names of some quilts evoke historical memories: Steps to the Capitol, Little Giant, Union Star, Missouri Puzzle, Kansas Trouble, Delectable Mountains, Flying Geese, Bears Paw, and Pine Tree. A quilting demonstration, which drew everyone's careful attention, was conducted by Elmeda Bennett of Manahawkin, who said she made her first quilt when she was newly married, about 18, and figured that she had made at least several hundred 47 in the last four years alone. Could you make such quilts today? Of course you could. Magazines frequently carry articles on quilting and there are excellent books on the subject. A current and popular one is the "Mountain Artisans Quilt- ing Book" by Alfred Allan Lewis (MacMillan, European and American quiltmaking are included with specific instruc- tions and patterns for many familiar ones such as a "Crazy "Tree of Life and an "Old Maid's Puzzle Quilt." The Mountain Artisans a West Virginia co-operative have been helped by distinguished designers, and their work can be found in many fashionable stores across the country. As a result, several chapters of the book describe other ways to use quilted materials which may, or may not, be of interest. e o o X MEN'S CASUAL JACKETS Corduroys, Plaids, Wool Motions, Parkas, and many, many Originally Were 17.95 to '60 PRICE BOYS' JACKETS COATS Clwoso from ski jacksts, parkas and otN casual stytos.
