Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Fairbanks, Alaska, Monday, March 12,1973-7 Notesfor Newcomers By ELLEN AYOTTE District Home Economist How To Change Ingredients So met imes living out o f town and not near a store or neighbor can present a problem; especially when you pain to bake or cook something and you don't have all the ingredients required. However, if you have an ample supply of staples in your kitchen cupboards you need not put your cookbook away but you can substitute another ingredient and still prepare your favorite dish. The following are some examples: Use canned milk in place of the cream in such things as sauces, baked goods or candies. If you're considering agelatin type salad and whipped creamisone of the ingredientshereevaporated milk will also work. To whip it, chill well and add a bit of lemon juice. Non-fat dry milk can also be whipped, but doesn't stand up so well. For non-fat dry milk to be whipped first chill both the bowl and the beaters. Use 'A cup milk crystals and 'A cup Ice water and beat 3 to 4 minutes until soft peaks are formed. Then add 2 tablespoons lemon juice and beat until stiff; add '/ cup sugar. Ever run out of flour?Thendon'tplanamajorbaking project. But if you need just a bit of thickening--substitute com starch or quick cooking tapioca. Of if you only have all purpose flour and your recipe calls for cake flour; use 2 tablespoons less per cup of the all purpose flour. For a cup of com syrup, you can substitute a cup of sugar plus '/i cup of water. For an ounce of chocolate, you can substitute three tablespoons of cocoa plus a tablespoon of fat. And for a teaspoonfu] of baking powder, you can substitute 'A teaspoon of soda plus a half teaspoon of cream of tartar. If you have no cream of tartar, add Vi tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to the liquid in the recipe. So have an ample supply of staplesonhand and you will always be able to make your favorite recipe. Producer calls film poetry set to music Edited by KAREN WINEGARDEN MARILYN CH1NN AND RANDYSTOWELL Couple to say vows April 8 is the date set for the wedding of Marilyn Joyce Chinn and E. Randy Stowell. Miss Chinn is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Ronald Chinn, 2.7 Is Fun Poetry set to music and Alaska's magnificent scenery is how Dan Quick describes "A Time for Every Season" Lodestar Productions' first film about the 49th slate. A n d , Q u i c k says, others, including a man who works on Jacques Cousteau films are saying the same. "A Time for Every Season" h a s b e e n s h o w n throughout south central Alaska to more than 12,000 Alaskans. "This film is unlike any Alaskan film" producer Quick staled, "most of our showings in Alaska have been sell out crowds." More than 400 were turned away from 4-H contest winners selected the last Anchorage showings. Quick, one of eight Lodestar partners, says the film was in the planning stages for several years. A documentary with poetic overtones, the film tells the story of a man and a boy who explore the wilderness of the Kenai Penisula. It takes the viewer t h r o u g h a year of seasons, b e g i n n i n g and ending with winter, with the pair's wilderness experiences s a n d w i c h e d in between. The Soldotna filmmaker said the production is an actuality f i l m because t h e y o u t h , 12-year-old Jeff Bridgewater, had never been in the wilderness before, "It is quite remarkable to watch him change." Jeff had never cast for fish before, and Quick said he insisted upon haling (he first lure thrown into the water on film. The same went for the first time Jeff pulled a rifle trigger. The two-hour movie also has no animal killing scenes, nor d o e s i t p o r t r a y t h e "moose-behind-e very-bush", attitude. And unlike many Alaskan films which take viewers from Point Barrow to Ketcflikan in a couple' of hours, "A Time for Every- Season" concentrates on just one* area, the Fox River-Kadiemak Bay area of the Kenai Peninsula'.' Quick scored, edited and put- together the film In Lodestar's, studio in Soldotna. T h e t e c h n i e i a n w h o c o o r d i n a t e d sound for the' Jacques Cousteau films mixed the sound for the Alaskan film. "A Time for Every Season"wili be shown in Fairbanks at the Hering Auditorium Wednesday the 14th through Saturday the' 17th at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. each night, with a 3 p.m. matinee on' Saturday.

Hints from . . . HELOISE Men in Service MINI-SHORT COURSE-Lyn Huhs, is shown with Bill Scarbough, the instructor for a mini-course in ivory carving sponsored by the Tanana Valley District Extension Homemakers and the Cooperative Extension Service. Navy Petty Officer Third Class Raymond A. Hollinrake, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jim F. Hollinrakeof 41 Mile Richardson Highway has returned to his homeport in San Diego after a Western Pacific deployment aboard the repair ship USS Jason. Dear Heloise: When storing packages of frozen food, I use the ten-pound bags from potatoes and onions which are made of large mesh and have a drawstring in the top for closing. I soak the bag in warm water to wash and remove paper strip. These are great for large frozen fowl, hams or large packages of meat, or any large frozen package of food. Through the mesh, you can see the name on the package of food. The coarse mesh prevents slipping and sliding and is easy to lift from the freezer and to carry by the drawstring. If you have ever tried to carry several packages of frozen food -- having packages slip and slideoff, and freezing your arm, then you will surely welcome this idea. The potato bags are handy on picnics, too, for a fisherman to keep canned beverages cold. Place the cans in the bag and fasten them in the water. Alice Robertson Dear Heloise: I used to have trouble making the new eight-cent stamps stick to the envelope if I licked them a shade too much, as the glue is very thin. I found out that licking the envelope instead of the stamp, you will have no trouble making it stick. Thelma Cheathem Dear Ileloise: Yesterday, I had a real catastrophe! Dropped an open tube of lipstick on a brand new dress, pale blue and white no less! Our school secretary (I'm a teacher) saved my day with this hint. Liquid cold water wash, used mostly for wool, applied full strength, will remove even the most stubborn grease spots. Would you believe that those lipstick smears came out as . though they had never been there? Fantastic! Shelby Shelton . LETTER OF LAUGHTER Dear Heloise: Your "Letter of Laughter" squibs appeal to me, so here's one from me: I eat my peas with honey I've done it all my life It makes the peas taste funny . But it keeps them on my knife! Mrs. Maurine Wright " * * * Dear Heloise: My daughter-in-law gave me a lovely but different gift for my birthday. She bought a pair of printed sheets and pillowcases, plus an extra twin-sized sheet, out of . which she made a matching nightgown for me -- personalized with her own label -"Fashions by Karen." I am so pleased with the gift and the idea that I thought maybe she had come up with something "Heloise" might like to hear about, KloC. * * * Indeed, 1 am glad to hear about this darling idea. You're a .. lucky lady to have such a sweet daughter-in-law! Heloise " Dear Heloise: I recently discovered that instead of using a brush for basting food on a spit, it works much better to use a plastic squeeze bottle filled with basting sauce.
