98, Pasadena, Texas, 77502. Etiquette Customs May be Centuries Old By JOY STILLEY AP Newsfeatures Writer NEW YORK (AP) Once upon a time knights in armor opened their visors when meeting someone, to determine if they were confronted by friend or enemy. From this stems today's custom of tipping the hat. In medieval days a man walking or riding on the right had the advantage of being able to unsheath his sword quickly with his right hand. The position of deference is still to the right of the host or hostess.

"Although their practical purpose has vanished, many such etiquette traditions continue today," says Esther B. Aresty, whose new book, "The Best Behavior," traces the course of good manners from antiquity to the present. Some customs that have lived their usefulness, however, have been abandoned, such as the prohibition against cutting salad with a knife. This originated, Mrs. Aresty explains, before the advent of silver or stainless steel blades, when acid in the salad dressing would discolor knives then in use.

But other regulations laid down centuries ago remain valid to this day, notes the author, who researched hundreds of rare old courtesy and etiquette books. The earliest was "Instructions," written about 4,000 years ago by the Egyptian Ptah- hotep. "Deference to elders was preached in this ancient papyrus scroll and is one of the oldest rules of civilized mankind," she points out. "Another ancient courtesy rule is the practice of breaking bread, rather than biting into a whole slice, apparently because it was customary to collect table leavings for the poor. This was even called for in the Talmud." Earlier books were general, stressing courtesy and human Calendar of Events TODAY 7 p.m., Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps, Community Building, practice session.

Kenneth Washburn of 82 Seneca has been the recipient of a "treasured" recipe, both sent to her by two of her sons, both in the United Stales Navy. Do you remember the famous Chocolate Sauerkraut cake recipe which Mrs. Washburn received from her son, William? When he sent his mother the recipe, he warned her not to reveal its contents until after her guests had tasted the marvelous cake. The recipe was given to him by a California family with whom he had had dinner. Now, Mrs.

Wahsubrn has received a recipe for a famed Buttermilk Pie, a recipe that had been a family "secret" and the "secret" was kept from a United States President. John Washburn, stationed at the Pensacola Naval Air Station, wrote his mother: "A world famous recipe for Buttermilk Pie, Which had been kept secret for at least 27 years has now been released by a Social Notebook Masier Chief Petty Officer. "The holder of the longtime family recipe is Master Chief, Steward Harry T. mess treasurer of the Bachelor Officer Quarters at the naval Station. "The recipe came from his mother in 1941 when he joined the Navy.

In fact the pie is so tasty that a President of the United Stales asked for the recipe and was denied. "Mr. Hightower was President Harry Truman's personal cook, when he made a cruise on the Battleship Missouri in 1947. During the cruise to Rio de Janeiro, Mr. Hightower made the Buttermilk Pie.

The President was so impressed by it that he sent his aide down to the Galley for the recipe. "But Mr. Hightower didn't believe he could give it to him, since it was a family secret. "Why did he release it now? He said that he'll be retiring from the Navy in June and believed that because so many VIPs have been served and enjoyed the pie, it was time for everyone to be able to enjoy it." relationships rather than specific rules, Mrs. Aresty says.

At the beginning of the 19th century, etiquette books, w.hile they contained some elements of the courtesy books, became" volumes of regulations. However, Mrs. Aresty thinks that conforming to such regula- tiohs is not the basis oi good manners. "You can put the forks on the right side and the knives on the left side of the may confuse your guests but all you've done is violate a regulation. But if you sit at the table with curlers in your hair and don't give your guests a chance to talk, then you're guilty of bad manners.

"Anything that offends is bad manners and you can define 1 good manners in just three words: consideration for oth- are what separates the herds from the leaders, the savages from the civilized." While admitting that today's" fast-paced life necessitates more informality, she contends that elimination of the niceties, in the area of man-woman relationships, is a "shattering loss." "It's a great pleasure to be a woman and have a man look after you," declares the author, who confesses "I'm not a women's lib gal. Women are emasculating men in this country and women's lib is delivering the coup de grace." The trim, well-groomed authority on manners of the past is particularly outspoken in her criticisms of children's manners of the present. Noting that manners were taught in school around the turn of the century, she adds that it would be a good idea for schools to reintroduce such a program. "You must teach manners; they're not instinctive. The public school system must become surrogate parents in many ways because children are growing up without parental supervision" says Mrs.

Aresty, the mother of a grown son and daughter. "In this country etiquette writers have always complained about the behavior of she goes on, "The tantrum is an American phenomenon. In Europe you rarely see the squalling cutups that are commonplace here." In other ways, too, European and American manners differ, Mrs, Aresty says, though the distinction is blurring with the prevalence of international travel. "There was a long tradition in America of not being fancy and not copying European ways," she comments. "Although the fork came into use in England in the late 17th century, in America most people shoveled food into their mouths with knives right into the 19th century.

Well past the Civil war, readers were still being advised not to put the knife into the mouth when eating." Men were the arbiters of manners in Europe, since they had plenty of leisure and social life centered around their needs. Thus they wrote the earlier etiquette volumes: but in America women became the custodians of manners and here they wrote the books. The rules of etiquette change constantly, Mrs. Aresty points out, and what is accepted at one period can be considered wrong at another time.

Dear Heloise: We not only needed a new coffee table in our living room, but my husband also wanted one of those tables that has a chessboard painted on it to go with a set of ceramic chessmen that he owns. As we were saving for our vacation and were short on money, we went to one of those used furniture places and bought an old coffee table, sanded it until the top had a smooth finish, and then covered it (the legs, too) with a good- grained pattern of adhesivebacked plastic. Then we cut two-inch squares in a blending plain color and spaced them on top so that the wood grain pattern showed between each plaia square until the correct number for playing chess or checkers was completed.

Two bright contrasting colors could also be used for the board. We love our table. It not only does double-duty, but was so inexpensive. J. Gallegos Looks like the smart "King" and "Queen" will easily have any opponents checkmated.
