Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Way 25, 1972 _ 29 A slice of Elizabethan England in its heyday "Merrie England" is alive and By CHARLES OI.EY London Observer Service "MerriG England" Is alive and well in southern California. 11 has been harasses by po- lice, invadc-cl by pol-smoking hippies and persecuted by loc- al bigwigs waving court or- ders in iLs 10-year life. But this spring the Renaissance Plea- sure Faire has come home to resounding financial success. And Lhat, in these United States, wins respect. The Faire is a starllingly au- thentic and charming re-cre- ation of a slice of Elizalrethan England in its heyday, and for tens of thousands nl Califor- mans it has become one of the big "Happenings" of the year. There is a hunger for the past in California, a stale filled with rootless immigrants from ev- ery part of the globe, crowded inlo densely populated metro- politan areas, and this "Spring- tymc Festival lo dszzle myndc .ind tills the gap. Only in southern California could an event like this be con- ceived, and then draw some people daily from all over the southwest. It is held in still unspoilt mountains that climb ahove the Pacific at Malibu, far from the madding, smog-choked crowns of Los An- geles, and the 10-lane super- i highways. From a distance, nestling among spreading oaks, yon see the waving banners i and fops of many-colored tenl- pavilions; the smells of cooked meals, herbs and fresh bread are carried on the breeze. Fantastically dressed miini- mers and jugglers with painted faces meet you at the draw- bridge over the stream; min- strels wilh flutes and guitars sing madrigals by Orlando Gib- bons, a stream of peasants and genlry walk through a meadow; young hawkers sit on bales of hay selling flowers. And when someone asks a girl what she does in real life the reply is: "My lady, tliis is real life." Some 200 booths and stalls, each with its own emblem on a banner (these were intended to tell the unlettered peasant what was on are crammed with "jewelrie and lustres, wood-c a r v i n g and pottery. Advantages of first-class restaurant Freighter crews well fed o MONTREAL (CP) De- spite their somewhat deceiv- ing exteriors, freighters that tie up in Montreal harbor offer many advantages en- joyed by any first-class res- an added inter- national flavor. In a city noted for its spe- cialty cuisine, few establish- ments can offer a daily menu of the scope available to the crew of a freighter, chosen from a cornucopia of foods purchased ic the ports they visit on round-the-world routes. A sample fare can include Norwegian smoked salmon, fruit and vegetables from Las Palmas and West Africa, Ger- Charity fund's reserves low TORONTO (CP) The chair- man of Toronto's United Appeal board says the charity fund's reserves are low and contribu- tions below target. "One more year like last year and we will have no reserves said Lou Rector. He added that "1972 is absolutely crucial to us Last year's campaign fell short of its target of he said. Reserve funds have been used to main- tain the budgets of the 78 partic- ipating health, welfare and rec- reation services. "Our reserves now are down by to only Mr. Rector said. "In addition we are receiving a lower interest rale on some of our in- vestments and many collections that should have been received have still to arrive.'' This year's campaign will run from Sept. 26 to Nov. 3. man cheese, freshly baked bread and rolls, Ghanian fufu with peanut mutton soup and the German er c h m a r r e n with apricot sauce. "It's very hard to lose weight on this says Karl Muller, chief officer aboard the German freighter Saarland, a vessel offering potato pancakes, dumplings, red cabbage, breads, smoked and pickled fishes and assorted European cheeses. When passengers are aboard, assorted hors d'oeuvres are added. SALMON' EXPENSIVE Paradoxically, seafood can be in short supply, says Capt. Alfred Kuptz. "Smoked salmon costs nearly five times in Germany what it does he says. "The fish is purchased here, frozen, carried back to Ham- burg and may be taken tlirough German customs as part of the person allowance." On special days at sea, Capt. Kuptz says the crew can enjoy venison. Tlie meat is marinated for 36 hours in buttermilk and spices and larded with bacon. It's then baked with water and more spices to which is added a pan gravy of sour cream and red wine and served wilh potato croquettes, red cabbage, wild chanterel muslirooms, tiny tart cranber- ries and a red burgundy. Also attesting to the new gourmet world aboard freight- ers is the 51-man crew of the Sakumo Lagoon of the Gham'an-ovrned Black Star Line, one of the first ocean- going vessels to visit the Port of Montreal this spring. Kofi Badu, the chief stew- ard responsible for planning the menu, says basic provi- sions and Ghanian food are put aboard in Tema, the ship's home port. Fresh fruit and vegetables were purchased in Las Pal- mas. Wine and Dutcli beer, a crew favorite, were added in Rotterdam. "Ghanians don't go in for luxuiy says Captain John Jones, downplaying the ship's vast meal selection, which offered potage Windsor, oxtail jardiniere, mutton curry, navarin of lamb, fried herring with mustard sauce and fruit flan. The galley is staffed by a chief cook with Ghanian hotel experience, assisted by a sec- ond cook responsible for bak- ing bread and a galley boy. While in port, steaming ket- tles held pea soup and fufu, an African vegetable from the yam family, while mutton simmered on the range. Steaks sizzled on a counter- lop Hibachi giving the galley an over-all appearance of a small modern restaurant kitchen. While possessing limited passenger facilities, freighters nonetheless offer good accom- modation to the fortunate few adventurous enough lo travel by freighter.
