THE KITCHEN By Camille Hoivland Woman's Page Editor \ State Attorney General Louis J. Lefkowitz keeps the news media well supplied with accounts of his legal ac- tivities. ^ A release dated Sept. 13 tells of his charge against a Canadian steamship company that it put out deceptive ad- vertising. \The attorney general said the line (Canadian Pacific Steamships, Ltd. of New York City) had falsely claimed in advertisements that the price of a Caribbean Cruise included private accommodations for each passenger, that the cruise included ports of call which were not actually scheduled and failed to indicate that individual customers were required to pay ad- ditional charges,\ the report stated. Talking with the wife of another in- nkeeper this past weekend, we learned that you have to be careful in taking a cruise. She said, \We went on one ship that advertised 'no tipping.' They said tips were included in the price of the cruise. However, when you bought a drink, or whatever, they still expected to be tipped.\ She said she would never go on a cruise again if the tip was advertised as \included.\ Well, that's a problem I haven't yet encountered. Maybe some day.... tDear Abby By A bigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: My husband never liked my first name so when we started dating he'd call me \Sweet Stuff.\ After we were married he started calling me \Mamma.\ Now, 10 years later, he doesn't call me anything. Whe'n we are out in company he refers to me as \Her\ and \She. When he wants to get my attention he says, \Hey you.\ If I say, \Who?\-he says, \You!\ Our friends have begun to notice it, and this bothers me. Even a dog has a name. Any suggestions? \HEY YOU\ IN BIRMINGHAM DEAR \HEY\: If you've gone from \Sweet Stuff\ to \Hey You\ in 10 years, your stock has slipped to a precarious low. Let him know that you're bothered, and would like a little consideration. And tell him if he doesn't like your real name, to go back to \Sweet Stuff.\ DEAR ABBY: Someone wrote in to say that whenever they invited a guest preacher to give the sermon at their church they allowed him exactly one hour, after which there was an automatic ringing of chimes. And if the preacher wasn't finished, the chimes would drown out his voice, so he finished whether he like it or not. And you remarked, \I'll wager that the church had a full house every Sunday!\ Abby, we are Seventh Day Baptist Christians and our sabbath is on Saturday—not Sunday. So in the future please show some respect for our sab- bath, too. OFFENDED IN ALABAMA DEAR OFFENDED: No offense in- tended to you or to others whose sabbath is on Saturday. But my correspondent specified a particular church in Brook, Ind., and their sabbath is on Sunday. DEAR ABBY: I am 15 and my boy friend is 16. Before we started going together (just a few months ago) Burton went steady with a girl named Jenny for three years. He broke up with Jenny because he liked me more. Last weekend I went to the family cabin with Burton and his parents. I had a very nice time except that Burton's parents kept calling me Jenny. It got very embarrassing, but I didn't feel like correcting them, so I just let it go. I guess it didn't bother Burton, or he didn't feel like correcting them either, because he didn't say anything. What should have been done in a case like that? NOT JENNY DEAR NOT: Since Burton didn't set his parents straight, you should have. (Respectfully, of course.) DEAR ABBY: You devoted a whole column to vasectomies, but there wasn't one mention of the fact that this operation CAN be reversed.. It is not always possible, but according to my doctor, 80 -percent success has been reported. Six years ago, after the birth of our second child, I had a vasectomy because my wife and I felt that two children were all we could afford to raise properly. Our younger child died in infancy and we wanted another so my doctor performed a \reverse\ operation on me and now we are looking forward to becoming parents again. Please print this for those who think if a man once has a vasectomy he can never again father a child. BEEN THRU IT DEAR BEEN: Thanks for writing. Many others have written to say they have been thru it, too. ...audi beyond . PAGE 4 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16,1971 THE JOURNAL Book Publishers Gear Up for Fall Rush By MILES A.

Woman Wins Top Honors In Chartered Accountants Field TORONTO (AP) - Rayanne Niven says a feminist banner appears to come .with what she's doing, but she doesn't really want to run out and march with it. Miss Niven. 22, has won the intermediate medal of the In- stitute of Chartered Account- ants of Ontario. With one year left to go before she is a CA, she has topped a field of several hundred students. A spokesman for the institute says he believes it is the first time a girl has taken top hon- ors. He says there are about 8,500 chartered accountants in Ontario, about 85 of them wom- en. Miss Niven is from Niagara- on-the-Lake, Ont. She gradu- ated from the University of Wa- terloo with a bachelor of mathe- matics degree, in computer sci- ence. She says her decision to be- come a CA was made quickly after talking it over with people in the field. - \I can't really say that people tried to discourage me, although they said it might be difficult. It's been a man's field for a long time, like the legal profession.\ She says what she is doing while she studies with Deloitte, Haskihs and Sells is basically auditing. \People are surprised, when they meet me, that's the initial reaction.\ She says the surprise soon fades, but the surprise, com- ments and questions have made her conscious of feminism. \The banner kind of comes with it. But for women I know who are entering professions, it's a job and we're going to do the best we can. I think thafs the only way to be accepted. I don't think marching can help. \Someone my age has diffi- culty evaluating the situation. We seem to be in the last half of the transition: I don't think things are perfect, but I think the worst is over.\ Miss Niven says she wants to keep working whether she mar- ries or not. \By the time you put in four years in university and three years more study, you've in- vested a lot of time.\ Arabian Robes Sold In Hadassah Hospital \It \BIAN DRESS-Fatimah Mahmdtid.an Arabian woman from East Jerusalem struck up a friendship with Mrs. Selrria Mala- mud who works at the Hadassah Gift Shop at the Hadassah- Hebrew University Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Put him to swim in a large glass bowl of water encircled with blue, white and orange flowers and you have, a Winning centerpiece for a table. That's what happened to 18- year-old Peggy Fitzgerald, of Kansas City, Mo., one of three top winners in this year's an- nual \Best Dressed Tables\ contest. The contestants attend- ing the finals in New York were regional winners in their own states. Peggy was sure the goldfish pulled it off and she was plan- ning to give him new aquatic delights: before going back home she would deposit him in the goldfish pond a t Rockefeller Center, she said. \I really matched the gold- fish to the orange linen nap- kins,'' she said happily. \My table is really 'now and then' a mix of old and new. The tradi- tional look is the blue and white china and the English gadroon silver. But the blue denim ta- blecloth and napkins are really now.\ Peggy's room at home is fur- nished in the 'now and then' theme, too, she says, with an old secretary, modern posters and some glassware she has made. \I don't go for super-mod things, although I like the un-. cluttered look. I think most col- or schemes shown for young people are a little wild, I visit a lot of houses with my father who is in the real estate busi- ness and I can't imagine how some people live with some of the far-out things in their homes.\ Her $500 winning check will go to the Mercy Hospital in Kansas — all winners prizes in the Gorham-sponsofed event are earmarked for a favorite charity - but she will be able to keep the two silver prizes awarded by Redbook and Amer- ican Home magazines. There were other youth-ori- ented tables. The winning table, \My Husband Got a Raise,\ appropriately in honor of the bread winner had an enormous centerpiece, a basket filled with breads ^- everything from bread sticks to long loaves. It was set on an amber and brown cloth. \Checkmates for Life,\ an^ other winner featured a table- cloth of black and white felt squares with little white chess- men at each place, and a cem iterpiece of red carnations and twisted red candles set into sil- ver candlesticks. It was sug- gested for a newlyweds party. -.: Another centerpiece was a patriotic one with an inverted Uncle Sam hat filled with white flowers, blue bows and red bumble bees. Little drummers surrounded the hat. A Honolulu entrant showed her \His and Herbs\ table, a fascinating array of little clay pots filled with herbs and flow- ers put in a small milk can. There was also a table swathed in green and white plaid, and another in brown bur- lap. There were yellow cloths and pink cloths and organdy over colorful liners. One attrac- tive bridesmaids\ table had a centerpiece of pink roses and baby's breath intertwined with white porcelain doves on a pink- beribboned silver tray. Among the unusual tables was one of black mirrored tiles set on black satin with black candlesticks in silver. Red and black napkins and red cart- nations completed the theme. Graham Greene Recounts His Early Experiences THERE'S GOLD IN THAT FISH—Peggy Fitzgerald, 18. won a table setting prize in the annual Best Dressed Table contest with her goldfish in a bowl centerpiece. A SORT OF LIFE. By Graham Greene. Simon & Schuster. $6.95. Greene — the veteran novel- ist whose most recent work was the popular '.'Travels With My Aunt\ — now is in his 67th year, and offers here the first part of his autobiography, covering three decades. It tells of his boyhood as the son of a headmaster at a school for boys, with reminiscences of his games, books and toys,-his shyness, his hatred of chil^ dren's parties, his ineptitude in sports and his early im- pressions of his relatives. It proceeds then to a theme so many English writers have related, the miseries of prep school life. By the time he was 16 he suffered a breakdown which led to six months of psy- choanalysis. Entering Oxford'at 18, he had become so \bored\ within a year, that he tried his hand at Russian roulette on several oc- casions. Meanwhile, he was moonstruck over a governess and had started writing his first two novels, which never were published. After Oxford came his ap- prenticeship as a journalist in Nottingham and on the Times of London. But shortly his third novel was published with fair success for a beginner, and he left the Times under a pub- lisher's contract to write three more novels in three years — all of which were failures. There are flashes of observa- tion here that show how some of his early experiences were adapted later into materials for his successful books that fol- lowed. But still to come is a full account of his real career as a -^writer. Miles A. Smith Associated Press Novel of Rich Family With Tangled Lives Community-hippie Conflict THE SOUNDS OF HOME. By Ilka Chase. Dou- bleday. S5.95. Miss Chase has written a tan- gled story about a large family of considerable wealth, and the various problems which their off- spring get into. The plot is keyed to the 35th wedding anniversary of Harrison and Bonnie Claibourne. JThey have three children, and Bonnie has one son and three grand- children by her first marriage. The second generation Clai- bournes include Michael, a ho- mosexual; Stephen, married to a woman 10 years his elder; and Annie, whose second marriage was to Simon Petrie, who is old enough to be her father. Petrie's marriage to Annie was his fourth; he has five chil- dren, including one adopted son. The Claibournes and the Pet- ries are a tribe with .plenty of grandchildren, stepchildren, half- brothers-, step-in-laws and vari- ous other relationships. The tribe also has its prob- • lems. Petrie's adopted son Ran- dy is a mental case who gets his half-brother Daniel, a hippie, into trouble. Stephen's wife Al- exis is in love with her brother,, who lives in Africa, and Stephen falls in love with Alexis' teenage daughter Brenda. It's all too complicated to be interesting and the writing is dull. Miles A. Smith Associated Press DEER RUN. By Ed- ward Connolly. Scribners. $5.95; • When young people with long hair, beads, odd costumes and a general contempt for con- vention establish a commune in the backwoods of Vermont, where the natives are strict- minded and suspicions of change, the result is almost in- evitable — a mounting conflict that ends in sharp violence. That is what happens in this novel. Josh had been wounded in Vietnam, had been sickened by war and had deliberately pro- • voked the army into giving him an unfavorable discharge. Re- membering a spot in remote Vermont that he had seen as a boy, he sought a haven there. By chance he found a friend — old Ritter, an independent cuss, bitter over the failure of his orchards, who was some- thing of a pariah in the commu- nity. Ritter rented an old moun- tain farm to Josh, and the com- mune began operating; it final- ly numbered 11 young people and a baby. Meanwhile Josh had fallen in love with one of the girls in the group. The local people were out- raged at finding \hippies\ in their midst. The proprietor of the nearest general store re- fused to sell them supplies; the police harrassed them_; the lo- cal youths started brawls with them. Not all the members of the commune turned the other cheek, and the violence esca- lated. In the end the commune was destroyed. Miles A. Smith Associated Press
