Beauty shop owner Vickie Egerton said the smell of smoke drew her to Apartment 107 at Eudowood Towers in Towson yesterday. But when she banged on the door, the man inside shooed her away without opening the door. "`Lady, get away from here,'" Egerton recalled the man saying. "`I have a fire in here. Get away.'" Egerton, whose Generations Family Salon is down the hallway from the apartment, said she called the building's office manager and returned to the apartment with an employee. By then, black soot was seeping around the door's edges as she and the employee banged on the door again.

Elizabeth A. Egerton, a former society reporter and homemaker, died April 23 at Roland Park Place, where she had lived for 22 years. She was 99. "She was just two months shy of turning 100 years old and said she didn't want to be a hundred, so in recent weeks she just stopped eating and drinking," said a nephew, Morton Millard Foster Jr. of the Woodbrook section of Baltimore County. She was born Elizabeth Adams Foster in Baltimore and raised on Harvest Road in Roland Park. She was a 1926 graduate of Roland Park Country School and two years later married Francis E. Pegram, a Baltimore attorney who died in 1954.

Scarlett O'Hara doubtless ate her share of chicken and dumplings.The classic dish, which could stretch one precious chicken to two meals, saw many Southerners though harsh economic times.From the big house of antebellum plantations to the sharecropper's cabin, the dish was especially valued after calamities such as the Civil War and the Depression. Those events leveled lofty and low."Nobody had money during those times," says John Egerton, author of "Southern Food: At Home, On the Road, In History" (Knopf, 1987)

AH, WE AMERICANS! So proud of our heritage of freedom. So brazen in our belief that we have the monopoly on protecting individual rights and liberties. So clueless we don't support complex films that challenge us to confront racism and slavery. The last judgment is one made by Douglas Egerton, a history professor at Le Moyne College, a tiny liberal arts Jesuit institution in Syracuse, N.Y. Egerton felt "The Patriot," the movie about the Revolutionary War starring Mel Gibson, "ignores race and slavery at every turn," in his words.

Between the election of Franklin Roosevelt in November 1932 and the Supreme Court's Brown vs. Board of Education decision in May 1954, writes John Egerton, "the South left Yesterday and entered Tomorrow."But "tomorrow" should have come sooner, and Mr. Egerton, a Southern writer who came of age during that period of transition, says that the "conditions [were favorable] for substantive social change" in the years immediately after World War II. "It appears to have been the last time -- perhaps the only time -- when the South might have moved boldly and decisively to heal itself, to fix its own social wagon voluntarily."

I crave fried chicken. In summer the best kind of fried chicken is cold fried chicken, the kind pulled from a picnic basket. In hot months this kind of fried chicken is more appealing than the kind that you eat right after it is pulled from a sizzling skillet.The skillet, of course, is a key to success. It should be big, dark and storied. The best fried-chicken skillet is one that has a tale that goes with it. Such a skillet might be described as "that old skillet, the one Grandma used to threaten us with."
