IN TIME of war, the word “pacifist” may be used rather indiscriminately. A pacifist, in the strict sense of the word, is a peacemaker, but until the war is over, there will probably be a moratorium on peacemaking. As generally used, the word implies a conscientious objection to war and violence as a method of settling international disputes, and when so defined, pacifists pose many difficult questions to a government engaged in war.By CLARIS EDWIN SILCOX12 min
NOT EVERYONE has either the time or the money for elaborate, monumental dishes. Or the taste for them; who wants a table, or the food on it, dressed up within an inch of its life!
