The Oriental cuisine for the International Luncheon
sponsored by the Florence J. Scott Study Club recently
featured a delicious meat and vegetable medley boiled
in chicken broth in a fascinating utensil called a "Hot
Pot." The Hot Pot, similar to a fondue pot, is heated by
coals dropped down inside it. Very popular in Korea
and Japan, the utensil may be used to cook just about
anything. The committee who prepared the Oriental
food prepared shrimp, chicken, beef strips, pork,
broccoli, mushrooms, and onions. The delicious result
was served over steamed white rice, very popular in
the Oriental countries and served with each meal as
potatoes are in many parts of our country. To top this
off, they served french fried strawberries and a tart
and tingly cranberry punch.

This week is being observed as Soil Stewardship
Week, dedicated to the preservation of our earth and
its resources. The theme "When We Care" is reflected
in this beautiful poem, "Consider Why You Care."
"Why do you care about the place where you live? -
"Why do you care about the place where you live? Why
lend a hand when you've something to give? It's the
sense of belonging; a matter of heart, It's the con-
science within you that says: 'do your part!' Why do
you care whether your child grows strong, Or learns
the difference between right and wrong? It's the deep
inner feeling we sometimes call love That was born
within you and comes from Above. Why do you care
about a neighbor's sorrow, Or join in working for a
brighter tomorrow? It's the spirit of grace; your God-
given soul; It's the love without which no man is whole.
Why do you care about the Commandments and
peace? Why strive to add beauty and see kindness
increase? It's part of the need to hold your head high;
To give life more meaning as time goes by. Why care
about freedom and justice for all? Why so quick to
defend when liberty calls'1 It's the devotion we owe to
the land that we cherish; It's the American way we've
sworn shall not perish. Why care about wildlife, tall
trees and good soil? Why worry about water that
pollution can spoil? It's the force deep within you that
says you should try To better the earth as you look to
the sky. What's in it for me?' Is the selfish man's test
And answers himself: 'I couldn't care less!' No, we're
not yet all brothers, sad to say, But your care can help,
if you decide it that way. Consider why you care.
Consider it well."
