By MARY FLYNN MOUNT KISCO- Twelve days of Christmas? In the George Kron home on Mill­ wood Road, it's been 12 years of Christmas. It actually started in 1950, when Mrs. Kron decided to take a course in ceramics at Horace Greeley High School Probably, the idea originated when, as a lit­ tle girl, she watched her aunt paint china. From her decision to take the classes have come hundreds of ceramic figures, vases, bowls, trays, and novelties, especially Christmas articles. This year, for the second time, Mrs. Kron's work will be sold at the Christ­ mas Fair of the Presbyterian Church, to be held on Dec. 3. \We've been working for the fair since January,\ Mrs. Kron said, and her studio shows it. Basement Studio Down in a cozy basement room its walls lined with an infinite number of paint jars, are lovely pottery works. Over in one cor­ ner stands a kiln where Mrs. Kron fires her works. Occasionally a young son or a very old dog wanders in to keep her company as she bends over her molds and her glazes. One son is a senior at Penn State, the other a high school student. Both boys \like\ the pottery, but neither does much with it. Their main duties down in the base­ ment are helping their mother with the heavy jars of liquid pot­ tery, called \slip and with the equally heavy molds in which the figures are dried. Mrs. Kron started working in clay, but abandoned it soon after for the pottery wheel. \I got tired of the wheel, because you could only make round things,\ she smiled, \so I started on molds.\ With sponges, brushes, all types of glazes, and a basement full of assorted materials, Mrs. Kron forms some truly beautiful piec­ es. There are tall, slim Madon­ nas in many types of finish—one a simulated wood that leaves a finish looking like a carved sta­ tue, another a white mat finish that resembles porcelain, the third a glossy white glaze. Angels singing, reindeer pranc­ ing along with sleds, holly-shap­ ed candy dishes, Santa Claus mugs, all ring the studio. Some are finished, some glazed but un- fired, others not yet glazed. ! Teaches at Swiss Home Mrs. Kron just hasn't the time to do it all at once. She teaches one day a week at the Swiss Home and until last year gave handicraft lessons to members of Mount Kisco's Senior Group. When she returns to her studio after a morning at the Swiss Home, she is usually laden with glazed articles ready for the kiln, so the oven is really overwork­ ed. Still, she has managed to turn out a great deal of work. Prob­ ably the loveliest and most am­ bitious is a 16-piece set, antique- finish creche set that will be sold at the fair. There are pure white diet? Some say Borden's Ready Diet tastes so great you can't believe you're dieting. Lets you feel great, too. A 4-pack contains a good balance of es­ sential daily nutrients. 225 calories per can. Ask your doc­ tor. Vanilla, Chocolate, and Coffee flavors. and painted creches that are also charming, but the antiqued set is really a jewel. In her spare time, Mrs. Kron has turned to porcelain molding. While the pottery is expensive, the porcelain runs into even more money. The \slip\ when harden­ ed, can be reliquified with water. Once the liquid porcelain, which costs more to begin with, hard­ ens, it can never be use,d again. The porcelain is exquisite. It is trickier to work with but so delicate in color and texture it is wel lworth the extra effort. China Painting, Too Besides all this, Mrs. Kron has just started hand painting china. Her aunt has given her china which the former never had the chance to paint before her eye­ sight began to fail, and the paint­ ing-firing, painting-firing, activi­ ties necessary for that intricate art have started in the basement studio. Mrs. Kron has a perfec­ tion of a plate on which she's been working in tones of violet, but since it's her first plate, it's taking quite some time. Mrs. Kron really has a pat­ tern of work before her as far as china painting is concerned. Her older son recently became engaged and has asked her to paint a dinner set for his future home. Between the porcelain and the fair, the Kron kiln is really get­ ting a workout. Stir in taking les­ sons whenever they are given, attending ceramic fairs, teaching at the Swiss Home, and painting china, and you've got one very busy artist. Egypt's Great Pyramid and Sphinx have stood guard over the Nile River for 45 centuries. Thou­ sands of slaves labored beneath the broiling sun, hewing and rais­ ing stone blocks of 15 tons for King Khufu's towering tomb. A few years later artisans carved the lionlike figure of King Khafre from an outcropping of rock. Shadows cast by the sun and the pattern of wind-blown snow can' reveal prehistoric burial mounds and roads when an area is photographed from the air.

Mrs. James Sachs showed slides of the 1962 flower show. Members met Nov. 4 at the home of Mrs. de Blonay, garden therapy chairman, to make Thanksgiving tray favors tor pa­ tients at Northern Westchester Hospital. The Kitchen Cabinet Mrs. Begenau Makes Leftovers Fun Naomi Circle Plans Meeting MOUNT KISCO- Members of the Naomi Circle of the Womans' Society of Christ­ ian Service will meet in theShome of Mrs. Earl E. Hege, Langland Drive next Tuesday, at 8 p.m. Dessert and coffee will precede the meeting. Devotions will be led by the hostess.

Last month members viewed slides and mementoes of Korea shown by Mrs. Richard Mansfield who had been in Korea and Ja­ pan as a member of the Nurse's Corps of the U.S. Army.

By PEGGY RICE KATONAH— Mrs. Vernon Begenau of Qr- chard Lane is a woman of many interests and a noted cook as well. Professionally, Mrs. Begenau has been a social worker. She holds a bachelor's degree from Syracuse, and a certificate as a qualified social worker from the New York School of Social Ser­ vice which is now a part of Col­ umbia University. At one time she was employed by the Town of Cortlandt as a social worker and more recently she worked as a medical social worker at Grass­ lands. She is not presently work­ ing in her field because of family responsibilities, but she more than keeps busy with her many volunteer activities. A charter member of the Mount Kisco Area branch of the Amer­ ican Association of University Women, she is now coehairman of this year's annual weekend for the Secretariat of the United Na­ tions, which will be held locally in the spring. Mrs. Regenau has been an ac­ tive adult in Girl Scouting since she and her physician husband moved to Katonah in 1947. She is currently a troop consultant. One day a week she is captain at the Katonah Thrift Shop, oper­ ated by the Woman's Civic Club. She also says that she loves to golf and spends a lot of time at it. It's a wonder that Mrs. Bege­ nau has any time to cook.

So, round and round and round she grows un­ til... you guessed it... it's time for another crash diet. What a silly game. It's hard on your clothes, your health, your state of mind, and your friends. I know, because I once went through that same crazy cycle. You see, if you lose weight quickly, it is very easy to put it on again quicklyiThe thing to do is find a way to balance your calories.. .to con­ trol your weight without feeling as if you are on a constant diet. And I've found a good way! Several times a week, usually at lunchtime, I substitute Borden's Ready Diet for my meal. The calories are measured, 225 in each single-serving can, and it[contains a good balance of essential daily nutrients. So you feel satisfied instead of starved. But the best part is that Ready Diet really tastes good. Not at all medicinal. Now I enjoy normal meals with my family most of the time, but if I've overdone it a little, I drink Borden's Ready Diet for lunch the next day. We can't all be naturally slim, darn it!
