Pork Chops, French Style
A famous French “peasant” dish combines pork chops, chestnuts and red cabbage. It is the spe cialty of a little restaurant near Dijon, where it served with a carafe of red wine and a basket of crisp French bread. Trim 6 thick loin chops, wipe them, dip them in beatep egg and brown them in a couple of table spoons of butter. Allow five min utes per side, then reduce the heat, cover the pan and cook for 20 minutes longer. Set chops in a warm place, and into the fat ;in the pan stir 2 tablespoons of | flour. Season with salt and pep per, and moisten with a cup of stock or bouillon. Simmer for 10 minutes. Combine 2 dozen parboiled, peeled chestnuts with one large red cabbage, shredded. Boil to gether for 15 minutes and drain. Put the chops in the middle of a platter, surround with cabbage and chestnuts. Add a teaspoon of lemon juice and some minced parsley to the sauce, strain, heat through, and serve with the chops. Mew panel-back zip-coat boasts couturier lines!

Second Fioor. 69.95 | On Being a Nuisance By Angelo Patri There are some children who seem to have been bom with a crossgrained disposition. Physical ly well, they are mentally awry. Everything is wrong so far as they see and feel it. Given their way, they are pleasant for the moment, but the next they are complaining that they never have any fun, that nobody ever does anything for them, that Brother or Sister gets everything. Ellen Marie behaved that way. She got good marks in school for everything but behavior. The teacher remarked that she was sulky, selfish and unco-operative. After that there was little else to say. The prolonged struggle to help her broke down her mother’s health, and the doctors said a va cation from home and family was imperative. Granny took over in her place. Soon after this happened (it was during school vacation), Granny planned a picnic for the children—Ellen Marie, her brother and sister and a friend. Everybody was happy and gay, even Ellen Marie. When it was time to get into the car, Ellen insisted that she sit beside Granny, alone, and that the others pile into the back seat. They said no and Granny said no and Ellen Marie began to howl loudly and declare that she never had any fun. Everybody else could have fun, but nobody seemed to care what happened to her, and she would sit in the front seat, alone, or she would stay home. Gooa, said Granny. Stay home and enjoy your nasty dis position,” and drove off with never a backward look. The children looked grave, but Granny chuckled and said, “Now you just forget all about her. She has spoiled your good times long enough. She has made your mother ill. What she needs is a dose of her own medi cine. She’s all right. Mary will see that she gets something to eat. We’re off for a good day’s fun.” When the party returned that evening, Ellen Marie was sulky, but nobody seemed to care. They talked and laughed about their day and planned for tomorrow. “We’ll get in all the fun we can now when we have the chance ” said Granny. “When school opens we’ll all have to stay close to the job. Tomorrow we’ll take lunch with us and visit the old mine vil lage. It’ll be fun to poke about down there, and the ride is lovely, all the way by the river. We'll stop by for a swim before lunch.” Next morning Ellen Marie was up, ready and waiting. And she sat in the back seat between her brother and sister without com plaint.

He will be on hand in the millinery department of a leading F street fashion store during the day-long informal modeling of his new collection. Tall or small, it doesn't matter. What matters is that you wear the hat most becoming to you. The hat that makes sense for your fall costumes. Our three hats pictured are from Mr. Northridge's fall collection. Left: A tall and small at the same time black coq calot. The veil, drawn closely over the face, finishes in folds under the chin. One of the small for mal hats Mr. Northridge likes to make. Right: Dark green moleskin is cfeverly manipulated into a cloche with the new, high, square, draped crown. It is drama tically trimmed with a huge sunburst studded with pearls. The moleskin muff and hat accents are favored by Mr. Northridge for suit accessor ization. Drop center: The white hats with jeweled trim are Northridge suggestions for wear with furs and cock tail clothes. The new side slanting silhouette is em phasized here by the brim slash. The deep-crowned felt cloche is banded and edged with pearls and rhine stones. In his collection will be many midseason offerings. These include forward pill boxes, wider brim spreads and a hint of spring as sug gested in several of his new pastel felt hats with flower trims.

Youth’s State of Confusion By Josephint Lowmon Few of us would be able to say just what we think life is all about, nor would we be willing to commit ourselves exactly about what we want from life. Unfor tunately, many persons find them selves as bewildered at middle age as they were in early youth. Yet it seems to me that youth is a time of confusion. Young folks are apt to be caught in the trap of trying to be like every one else their age. "of belonging.” They are caught in the rat run of con stant activity and dashing about so that their talents lie dormant and there isn’t any time left for self discovery or spiritual growth. There is no time for yearning to ward the far horizons, for build ing reserve strength or weighing values. Having a gang and lots of friends is most desirable but some how, today our boys and girls,! or our young men and women,! have been catapulted into a society which is far beyond their years, perhaps five years ahead of normal development and nor mal experience. Adults have failed to provide youngsters with spirit ual Impetus. I have before me a letter from a young woman which seems to me to be quite poignant. She says: * "Recently when writing for older people you said, ‘Slow up. Enjoy life. In the headlong race, sometimes not only life but often the meaning of life, is lost! “That is what I want to know. What is the meaning of life? What is its purpose? What should a teen age girl expect from It? I am serious. Somewhere along the way during my 18 years I have lost piy sense of values. Honestly I do not know what I want from life or how to go about getting it.” If I were to show this letter to the average 14-year-old girl she would probably say, "That gal is in an awful fix.” I do not agree. I think this young lady is in a wonderful fix. I think her letter shows intelligence, sensi tiveness of the best sort, and understanding. While too much introspection may not be good for youth, every human being must have some of it unless he or she is to become a bored, frustrated person. After all, life is the same the world over but what we want from it is a highly individual matter. _ ADVERTISEMENT. Renter market cm ... witkfbtftoker TRULY A BIRD of distinc tion is the turkey, almost as much of a symbol of America as the eagle—for certainly the turkey is the “bird royal” when it copies to the table. And this, the season of the turkey, brings good news for Washingtonians. Hie turkey crop is expected to be the second largest on record this year, and turkeys have been selling well ever since late sum mer. Last year, prices were the highest ever on turkeys, and growers did not .overlook the high prices the birds brought. BUT this year finds a differ ent story. Because of those prices, everybody and h i s brother raised turkeys, hence they are very plentiful and very reasonable this season. SATURDAY, at Center Market City, we found a 20 pound bird for $12.28 — that gives you some Idea of what to expect. • • • * CENTER MARKET CITY has long been Washington head quarters for the turkey. And this reputation has been justly deserved, for much care and thought is given to producing the best turkeys possible for the tables of the Capital. Most of the turkey supply comes from the Shenandoah Valley, but other regions also send us turkeys. Mbst popular turkey for the small family is the Beltsvllle White, developed nearby at Beltsvllle, Md., under the super vision of the Department of Agriculture. A 6-pound hen in this variety makes a good meal for a small family. For some reason or other, the most popular sizes seem to be either the 6 or the 12-pound size for most of the year, but of course the larger sizes are more in demand around Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s. • • * • NATURALLY, hens are more in demand than toms, and the price is often lower on toms, but as most everyone knows, a good roast tom turkey is mighty fine eating. CONTRARY to what yon might think, more turkeys are sold at Center Market City for Christmas than for Thanks giving. Christmas seems to be the “home day” when people entertain at home, while Thanksgiving sees more people eating out and attending foot ball games, etc. The biggest single turkey days occur a few days before Christmas. The big poultry stands at' the Market sell thousands of turkeys during this season and one stand sold over 2,000 on Christmas Eve last year. This is in addition to the regular holiday fare of chicken, ducks, geese and rabbits. So you see what a big business the turkey business is here. The small Beltsville Whites that we told you about are nicest for small families. The hens run from 5V4 to 9 pounds on the average, and the toms run from 11 to 14 pounds. The big double-breasted bronse turkeys (those delicious turkeys with so much white meat) are big favorites for holidays. The hens run from 9 Yz to 15 pounds, and the toms from 1814 to 30 pounds. A 30-pound turkey these days is, of course, for a feast. • • • • IT’S TURKEY TIME at Cen ter Market from now through New Year’s, and you’ll find wonderful quality and marvel ous prices at CENTER MARKET CITY 5th lr K N.W.
