, COU Meet John Dorn, Corky's husband. Here is a man with many irons in many fires. Born in South Bend, Wa., he attended school and lived for years in Portland, Ore. Enlisting in the U S Navy when he was 17 years old, for two and a half years he served in the South Pacific as a landing craft coxswain. He utilized the G I bill to study dancing with Arthur Murray in Portland, Los Angeles and San Francisco. After 1000 hours of schooling he became a teacher with dancing classes in both Portland and Los Angeles. In three more yeats he was training dance instructors, traveling from studio to studio to bring teachers up to date on new steps and new dances. He has been employed by the Fred Astaire studios and by Veloz and Yolanda. He managed the Palais Royal in Portland for Ed Chenney, broadway star. "I learned a lot from him," John Dorn declares. "He was a terrific tap dancer, and developed fabulous routines." Dorn has been employed as advertising man and shop worker on in Hood Canal Woman's Club bserves 44th Anniversary With a window-view background of the lake and the blue-and-white Olympics, Lake Cushman Resort was the setting for the birthday dinner May 19 when members of the Hood Canal Federated Woman's Club celebrated their 44th anniversary. Presiding was Mrs. Claud Dugger, who has completed two years as president of the club. Hostesses were Skokomish and Union members, Mrs. Dugger, Mrs. Theodore Richert, Mrs. Nina Miller and Mrs. George Snuffin. Tables were decorated with red rhododendrons. Honored guests, who were presented with corsages, included charter members, past presidents and Mrs. Norman B. Anderson of Seattle, immediate past president of the Washington Federation of Women's Clubs. Two charter members; Mrs. J. C. McKiel and Mrs. Herbert Boeck of Hoodsport, and several past presidents were among the twenty-one guests attending the banquet. Invocation was by Mrs. Harold E. Drake; Welcome, Mrs. Nina Miller and response, Mrs. Rosie Smith, all past presidents. Other program highlights were contributed by Mrs. Nina Miller and Mrs. Charles T. Wright. Mrs. Miller, who has been school librarian since the Hood Canal District School opened, told of the continued expansion of the library and its service to students. A colorful history of the beginnings and development of participation and work by members and their husbands. An incident that impressed her listeners as evidence of an early Woman's Liberation mood dealt with a cement-pouring job that had been overlooked when large equipment was on the premises. Mrs. Wright planned to do this work with the aid of a man, who brought mixer and wheelbarrow. Helen Wright, who had done much of the carpentry in the clubhouse construction, advised him that she was his helper. Declaring that he couldn't do the job alone and that he also couldn't "work with a woman", the man declined the employment. He underestimated the power of a determined woman. Mrs. Wright was back at the building site the next day with the equipment she thought necessary and, single-handed, finished the cement pouring despite a crushing injury to her hand. Mrs. Anderson commented on the outstanding work done by the Hood Canal club, which has won many state awards for its departmental work and community achievements. After-dinner entertainment included state convention and conservation workshop slides shown by Mrs. Dugger. Hoodsport contribution was the singing of a parody on "Dearie, Do You Remember?" by Mrs. Bert Tweed and Mrs. Harold Drake. the clubhouse building project A skit called, "An Ecological Linda Auseth Gladys Cox Scholarship Recipients Announced Scholarship chairman Furn Cramer at the May 10 spring luncheon of the Mason General Hospital Auxiliary held in Evergreen Inn, Olympia, announced the winners of the four nursing scholarships annually awarded.

What's the difference between a cleansing cream and a cleansing lotion? A. A cleansing cream generally allows your skin to retain more of its natural oils. It is therefore recommended for normal or dry skin. A cleansing lotion may have a tendency to strip natural oils from the skin. It is therefore recommended for oily skin. CLEANSING VS. WASHING Q. Is there any difference between cleansing cream and washing cream? A. Yes. Cleansing cream is an emollient product which loosens makeup so that it can be tissued off. Washing creams also loosen makeup, but they are meant to be rinsed off -- not tissued off. Less emollient than cleansing creams, washing creams are, however, not drying to the skin. They can therefore be used by women who find that soap is too drying.

Hanging Bask( scout at the age of 11 years, and remained active in scouting until entering the service. When he took up residence in Hoodsport, he soon found himself a Scoutmaster. "There had been no troop in Hoodsport for seven years," Dorn explained. "A bunch of us fellows got together and organized a group. Only one of the men has a son in the troop - we just wanted to get something going for the kids, and we find now that the adults have as much, or more, fun than the boys." The same eight men who were instrumental in the forming of the troop are also volunteer firemen. By some strange coincidence, John's assistant scoutmaster is Mick Simmons, Fire Chief, for whom John Dorn serves as assistant fire chief. Dorn recently accepted employment as a salesman with the Green Tree Realty in Lilliwaup, and while he attends Real Estate School, Mick Simmons will take over the scout troop. "Work with the Scouts has been very rewarding," Dorn states. "Last summer we sent two boys to Camp Thunderbird for leader training. They were considered ineligible because of their tenderfoot status, but were allowed to remain. Dorn's scouts, Ken Connelly and Brad Aitken, scored 100% on a rugged survival hike and at the end of the week-long period were top scorers with ratings of either 'excellent' or 'good' in every catagory. 'Tm darned proud of my boys," says Dorn, who is constantly petitioned by the girls in his dancing class who desperately beseech him to organize a girl scout troop. ''I wish it could be cooking except broiling. "In it one can cook anything that can be cooked on the kitchen range -- casseroles, stews, Spanish rice, Chop Suey, Chili; bread, cakes and pies can be baked in it; but most of all it is famous for the baking of the famous "Bean Hole Beans". "First, dig a hole about two and a half to three feet wide and just as deep. The selected site should be sandy, or in mineral soil rather than in peat or root-filled soil where underground fire might spread. "For best results, line the hole with rocks to hold the heat. If rocks are not used, the hole may be made approximately two feet wide by two feet deep. "'Over the hole build a big fire, preferably of hardwood, stoking it constantly for several hours and allowing the hot coals to drop into the opening. "White beans, pea beans or kidney beans which have been washed and sorted, soaked overnight and drained should half-fill the Dutch oven. Cover with fresh cold water, add a teaspoon of baking soda and simmer beans until the skins crack when blown upon, and bean fragrance is noticeable. "If overnight soaking is impractical, cover beans with water and bring to boil; pour off water and bring to boil once more in fresh water; drain and add water a third time. Cook about 40 minutes, or until they reach the skin-cracking stage. "Remove beans temporarily to another container and on the bottom of the Dutch oven place a layer of sliced salt pork or bacon. Add an inch and a half of beans followed by another layer of pork, adding a slice of onion with each layer. Alternate layers of of a generous length of wire around the handle, leaving a large loop in the other end. Some people place leaves on the lid as a barrier to dirt, and some enclose the oven in a wet burlap bag. "Lower the container into the hole in such a way that no hot coals touch the bottom or sides Cover the lid with hot coals, the rim around the edge holding them in place. Fill in the hole with earth, taking care not to displace the covering coals. Tamp sod over the top to create a tight seal, leaving the wire handle to protrude. "In six hours, or maybe eight, dig out the oven, lifting carefully with the wire loop. Remove soil from lid, and you're ready to enjoy Bean Hole Beans like the North Woodsmen have made them for many years." Bean Hole Beans 1 or 2 lbs. beans, according to size of Dutch oven. White beans, pea beans or red kidney beans may be used. 1 to 1 lbs. salt pork or bacon. to 1 Tbsp. salt Pepper to taste to 3A C. Dark molasses 1 Tbsp. brown sugar, or slightly more 1 Tbsp. powdered mustard, or a little more 2 medium to large onions, sliced. Pre-cook washed and sorted beans that have been soaked over night. In Dutch oven arrange alternate layers of pork and beans, beginning and ending with meat, and including a slice or two of onion and a sprinkling of sugar with each layer. Top with remaining ingredients and bake in prepared bean hole. Made to Measure-. Any Size Lined or Unlined MR. AND MRS.
