Bishop, in Korea. Bob's looking forward to the day when he can sink his teeth in home cooking again. Sergeant Bishop Asks Photo Of Mom Cooling Favorite Dish A Binghamton woman has a definite stake in the Korean war a Swiss steak, that is. And it's all because Swiss steak the way Mrs. Preston H. Lippert of 5 Robinson Street prepares it is one of the favorite foods of her son fgt. Kooert L. Bishop, who is serving with the ? 1st Marine Division Division in Korea. Sergeant Bish op really has j nothing against military cooks. They do a very passable job but, he comments in a letter to The Sunday Bress: "No matter how the bellyrobbers (cooks) fix up the chow (out of i, JH" I I SGT. BISHOP it'll never beat home tin cans) cooking." Thus it was, when he heard about The Sunday Press' offer to fill picture requests for GIs serving serving overseas, that his thoughts turned to the Robinson Street kitchen back home and visions of his mother standing at the stove preparing one of his favorite dishes. "Would like very much to see I picture of my. Mom cooking a Swiss steak in our kitchen," he Nrote. "When I get home, I'm ore going to spend a lot of time (here and eat a lot of Swiss steaks, too." PIE THROWN IN Notified of her son's request. Mrs. Lippert made immediate arrangements arrangements for' the picture and had the steak turned to a tee and ready for the platter when the photographer arrived. Just for good measure she had "thrown in" an apple pie, which was sitting sitting on the stove. It was good, too ask the photographer! We hope it looks good to you, Bob. We also hope the day isn't far awav when you'll be parked in that kitchen again so that you not only can see, but also sample the delicacies. Just so you can get a better look at the steak you requested we're sending the original photo to you by airmail.
