SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - The soup was both crunchy and creamy. Milk and cheese made it rich, creamy and smooth. Then comes wild rice and the garnish of crumbled bacon, which made it delightfully crunchy. "I absolutely love wild rice," said Loretta Homan as she stirred a pot of wild rice for soup in her Shepherds-town home. Wild rice is the official grain of Minnesota, where Homan found her wild rice soup recipe. According to Minnesota's official state Web site, wild rice is really an aquatic grass and is not related to common rice, the softer variety most people are used to. Grains of wild rice resemble long, brown pine needles.

Since the usual poultry abattoirs were closed, it was early Christmas morning before Stoddard found someone to kill and dress the bird. Washington County's night clubs and taverns expect a record business for the arrival of 1950, because many parts of Maryland will have a midnight curfew on liquor sales Saturday.

Their four children - daughters Georgina and Francesca and sons Carlo and Victor - were born in Toronto.
