"Our Santa has become a rival

The editorial was written by
the Review's edltor-lnchlef, the
Rev. John Sinnott Martin.
It describes Santa as "a foolish

or at least are willing to give
him back the place he deserves
on his birthday" to leave Santa
to those who Tiave nothing
"Sana the saint has been lost

that Santa was a source of more
pleasure to the grown-ups than

By GAYNOR MADDOX
NEA Staff Writer
With pork prices dropping be
cause of a plentiful supply, look
for special recipes to add to the
Christmas season celebration.
Roast crown of pork, from the
new "Rector's Naughty '90s Cook,
book," is a bountiful affair. It's
one of 400 recipes in the book col
lected from celebrities of that
fabulous era of Lillian Russell,
Diamond Jim Brady, Anna Held
and Jim Corbett.
Crown of Pork
Have a 4-pound loin of pork
trimmed and formed into a
crown, being sure that each chop
bone is covered with larding pork.
Also secure paper frills for each
Fill crown with a delicious rice
stuffing made as follows: to 2
cups plain boiled rice add Vt cup
finely minced green pepper, 1
finely mined pimiento, a slight
grating of onion and i teaspoon
sage. Mix well and moisten with
3 tablespoons melted butter.
Put crown in roasting pan, fill
cavity with prepared rice, cover
with a piece of buttered paper
and sear in hot oven (450 degrees
F.) 20 minutes. Reduce heat to
moderate (350 degrees F.) until
crown is cooked, about 2V4 to 3
hours, basting from time to time.
