Wednesday, November 12, 1980-Page 7 Authentic Mexican Cuisine for Hotline Dinner By ELEANOR PHILLIPS Alice Cordtz, formerly of Geyserville and now a Cloverdale resident, has had firsthand experience with Mexican cuisine. Knowing her experience and fondness for all things Mexican, the women of Good Shepherd Church, Cloverdale and members of the Youth Consultation Service, have called on her expertise as they prepare for the Youth Hotline Mexican Dinner to be served Friday, November 14, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Veterans' Memorial Building, Cloverdale. A native Californian, Cordz's "savvy" comes nal uraily. She was born in San Diego, grew up having Mexican and Indian friends and as a young married woman, lived in Cuer- navaca, Mexico. She married Bill Cordtz, now a leacher at Geyserville schools, and also a native San Diegan, in 1948. Their children Desda, Rob and David were 12, 10, and 8 years old when the family moved to Rancho Tetela, a suburb which lay at the foot of the volcano Popocatepetl, about 50 miles south of" Mexico City. "I knew how to make tortillas when I was a child," she says, "but I learned the real Mexican Alice Cordtz of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church prepares tortillas for he enchiladas pollos to I be served at the Mexican Dinner benefitting'the Youth Hotline on Friday, November 14, from I to 7:30 pm. in the Veterans' Memorial Building, Clovcrdale.

There, Cordtz continues, she shopped in the local markets, learned about the native fruits and vegetables and the com- binations of color, taste and shape that are peculiarly Mexican.

His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward. Vandals or soldiers or both, looted the properties of Ellery, Clymer, Hall, Walton, Cwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton. At the Battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis, had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. The owner quietly urged General George Washington to open fire, which was done. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt. Francis I.,ewis had his home and properties destroyecl. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died Within a few months. John Hart was driven fl'om his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 chilren fled for their lives. His fields and his grist mill were laid waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home after the war to find his wife dead, his children vanished. A few weeks later he died from exhaustion and a broken heart. Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates. Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution. These were not wild eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. There were soft- spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more. Standing tall, straight, and unwavering, they pledged: "For the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of the Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor." They gave us an in- dependent America. Can we keep it?
