MARY DUCKHAM rode Jemadina, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Martinell, in the Half-Arab show held in Monroe in June. The grey mare, shown for the first time this year, took third place in English class. A rider of Arabian show horses is Mary Duckham, Shelton ttigh School senior. Seven years ago, while she was studying English equitation at Green Acres under Joelle Dawson, Miss Duckham was recommended to Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Martinell who were in need of a rider to school and show their Arabians. Aakadina, a purebred mare, was her first charge. "q did everything except feed her," says Mary. "1 rode her, groomed her, even cleaned her stall." The mare was shown throughout Washington, winning at several shows. It was then decided to use her as a brood mare and she now but rarely enters the show ring. Mary's next mount was a gelding, Sha-Red. shown many times in the state She also rode. during the same period. Robu-Baha. traveling through Washington. Idaho andOregon. and to the Canadian National Shows Red was sold and Robu developed an aihnent thai has at least temporarily halted his career. Mary Duckham is now riding Jemadina. the four-year-old grey daughter of Aakadina. "She was trained for English in Vantage, Washington.'"

I had returned home from work one evening to find this treasure delivered and installed, nty old El Funlo relegaled to a far corner of my huge old-fashioned kitchen. My delight had known no bounds as 1 tested burner after burner.Like well-trained horses each and every one of thent changed gaits instantly and smoothly upon cue in a manner bat h gentle and spirited. I had then turned my eager attention to the oven. Nothing. I poked and prodded; still nothing, I bowed three times in the general direction of Mecca: still no action. I delivered upon its reluctant door a resounding kick and gained only a throbbing toe. To the homemaker with delusions of grandeur, the situation might have presented a problent: but 1, skilled in the little makeshifts that add the spice to life, silnl~lY tnoved the two stoves side by side. On lhe first mt)rning of her visit, my sister wanted cinnamon toast. My sister is not the sort to make her cinnamon to:~st in the toaster. ! did not mind at all tire moving of the good-burnered stove out into the middle of the room. nor the subsequent shoving of the good-ovened stove into position to be plugged into the outlet: but I was just a mite annoyed when she changed her mind and decided to have a fried as a border along paths or drives, in beds or borders. Plants hug the ground, can be sheared in nfid-season to keep t hem compact and get more bloom but still look well without shearing. Individual flowers are tiny but clusters of them are more noticeable. During summer evenings their delightful scent floats on the breeze. Most gardeners know only the white-flowered alyssums. But there also are newer varieties with pink, lavender, lilac or purple flowers, just as easy to grow from seeds as those with white blooms. Add to the list of flowers that may be dried for winter bouquets as well as used fresh in summer the African paint brush. Bloom colors are golden or scarlet and flower form is like an upside-down paint brush. Do you know that moon flowers are going to be the rage in gardens? egg.

Consarn It Noodles "Way back in 1906 we lived on a ranch about 15 miles from town. The cows would sometimes go dry and the hens had seasons when they lied instead of laying. When they did reach their laying season, we made noodles at our house. No way to save the eggs, except by using them up in noodles. We dried them, placed them in paper sacks, sealed them with paraffin, then suspended them with ~trings from a rafter in the attic. Mama really used her noodle and we had noodles the year 'round. Noodles in soup, in casseroles, noodles with meat, with cheese and tomatoes, with vegetables ...just any way one would use spaghetti or macaroni. All went well until Mama came to the table one evening bearing a noodle-apple pudding. Noodles had been cooked, then a cup or so of grated apples, sugar, cinnamon and cream added and the whole baked. Papa tasted it, and said, 'Consarn it noodles again!" We called our noodles from that time, 'Consarn it noodles." Sometimes in the puddings she used honey for sweetening. To make the noodles, use 3 cups sifted flour. Add 3 slightly beaten eggs, tsp. salt and knead dough well. If the flour is real dry, and the eggs small, add about 3 tbsp. lukewarm water. Roll dough out paper thin, in long strips and allow to dry before using."

I admire The guest who takes Within her stride Unlucky breaks, M y city sister visited mc during my vacation, and I tnust say that she bore up remarkably well under the strain of my primitive inconveniences. She remembered from her last year's sojourn my somewhat unpredictable plumbing. The pipes, gorged with rust, have a decidedly disconcerting habit. They may, at any time, go suddenly berserk in the midst of an otherwise flawless performance to spew forth violently a veritable geyser of brilliant, orange-hued mud which strikes with unbelievable force against the sink surface to splatter, drench and discolor the hapless bystander. I cannot with accuracy compnle the actual pounds of' pressure behind this deluge, but suffice it to say that ! have playfnlly christened my kitchen f:lucet "'Old Faithless". !, through years of coping with the little idiosyncrasies of my doddering domicile, have become, to say the least, adept in the avoidance of the a|l-too-ofte'n crippling consequences of these minor annoyances. At the time of nay sister's initial experience with the kitchen faucet, ! was drawing water for a friendly pot of tea when the plumbing did its thing. My spontaneous reaction was according to custom, and l leaped straight backward, suddenly and yigorously. It was my poor sister's misfortune to be standing directly behind me and she was, of course, quite terribly trampled.

The problem was corrected before her next appearance. Jemadina now performs in Western and in Arabian costume classes in addition to English.Mrs. Martinell fashioned two costnmes, including an ornate bridle and an Arabian style costume saddle made from a rebuilt cavalry saddle. The mare was winner at the Arab Fiesta held in Centralia. "'I hope to start her in side-saddle next year," Mary Duckham states, "and she will be returned to Vantage for training in pleasure-driving to a buggy." Mary is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Duckham of Shelton, and although most of her free time is spent with horses, she enjoys water skiing and she is learning to golf. She is a member of Washington State Horsemen, the American Horse Show Association and the Arabian Horse Association of Washington. She plans, tentatively, to become a dental assistant. A young bay stallion, a son of Aakadina, is now being trained in Vantage and will be shown by Mary Duckham in the spring. "1 am fortunate," she says, "'to have this opportunity. My parents have helped me a lot in the purchase of equipment and with transportation." Mary I)uckhana grows fond of each horse she shows, but her favorite is still Aakadina, with whonr she began her show-ring experience. "I'11 continue to ride just as long as 1 can," she declares, "and 1 hope to own a purebred Arab some day."
