CLAREMONT, CALIF.
Carol Lee Ackley is an old-fashioned girl in a new-fashioned way. This Carol, just 19, of Claremont, Calif., is a sophomore this year at Chaffey College, Ontario, a nearby town, 15 minutes by car. A popular co-ed, a belonger, a doer, but more - she is a capable little homemaker, mistress of the eight room house she and Daddy call home. Carol does the cooking* She plans the menus. She does the marketing, the weekly washing. There is a once-a-week maid for the heavy cleaning. "I'll keep house for you/* Carol consoled her father after her mother's death over a year ago. "We'll keep house together Harold J, Ackley, advertising manager of Sunkist Growers Products, told his young daughter. And that's just how it's done. Carol continued with college; it was her freshman year. She kept on with her numerous outside activities. The two working together, father and daughter, made home a meeting place for young friends and the older, as it always had been. Carol enjoys sports. She plays a good game of tennis* She likes volley ball, adores water skiing. In the winter she skis on Mt. Baldy, 20 minutes away. Freshman year in college, Carol was chosen football varsity princess as well as basketball queen. She was elected to the Panther Women, an honorary organization. Pertly charming, this co-ed is five feet, two inches, weighs 110 pounds, eyes blue with green glints. Her blonde hair, turning darker, is tied high in a fat pony tail. The summer morning 1 visited the Ackley kitchen, Carol was just back from a shopping expedition in the local supermarket." It's a twice-a-week job. She was hop, skip and jump to get the groceries out of sight before my arrival. "You beat me/' she said. "I had to wait at the meat counter." ''Such a little girl,'1 I said, how can you do all these things? Equipment she answered. "We have everything push-button' "When did you learn cooking?" I've never quite learned, but I started as long ago as the seventh grade and Mother always let me bake. When she was sick I cooked and she directed, so I learned her dishes, the things Daddy likes. She taught me to plan menus and market so groceries and dinners somehow came out even. Yet I'm no wonder cook Carol repeated. "A few things I do extra. Daddy likes my veal cutlets, the macaroni and cheese, the tuna-fish casserole. I make Mother's wonderful lemon ice-box pudding. And for picnics I take along savory lemon pats for the hamburgers. I pretend the recipe is very secret but it isn't and I'll tell you how it's done. We like this butter at home and have it often on our broiled steaks. "And Mother's sand tarts - that's a recipe you should have. Trimmed with frosting they look like a million. "I keep a lot of frozen, precooked dishes stocked in the freezer," Carol said, lifting the lid to give me a peek,I noted individual pot pies, frozen pre baked bread and desserts. Carol showed me around the lovely house, designed and built by Millard Sheets, the artist. It's a reproduction of a Monterey Colonial home. Two bedrooms upstairs and two on the first floor with living room, kitchen, dining room, den and a guest house adjoining. There is a walled-in garden off an open terrace and beyond a thriving kitchen garden of vegetables. Up in her room Carol showed me her treasures - two hand-woven blankets, hand-woven place mats, she had made. We saw her clothes, ready for college, purchased in New York where she had gone with Daddy. Downstairs in the kitchen Carol pointed out the new magnetic bulletin board where she keeps her lists of grocery needs. Here she has rnemos written to herself of jobs to be done. Her recipe file is within handy reach of the work table. She showed me a growing shelf of cookbooks - seven, I counted. She keeps a radio in the kitchen because she likes to work to music. She loves to buy premium-stamp items and already has a mixing bowl and refrigerator jars in aqua-colored oven-proof glass. "For my hope chest' she said. "I thought you were going to be a teacher, Carol, majoring in education/' She laughed, "But really, I'm engaged, didn't you know? We are going to be married and soon! We might live in the guest house, Daddy says so. Then I'll have two men to keep happily fed. She died of cutaneouse "T" cell lymphoma on 11 January 2008 at the age of 70 in Covina, Los Angles , California.4610 cutaneouse "T" cell lymphoma, a disease of the skin and lymphatic system
