Twenty-five women remained on 24- hour duty, preparing cocoa, coffee and soup, and a thousand civilian workers served three meaus daily. Mrs. P. K.

PERKISQN'S JEWELRY STORE 218 South Walnut mas for their children and men, housewives got busy making blackout rooms, where the celebrations could be held. There was a rush on the meager supply of Christmas trees from the mainland. Yuletide gifts are mostly "sensible"— canned foods and other necessities. Food items were limited to two' apiece, and the housewives were asked to use chicken and Island pork. Amusements are limited to the daytime, before the blackout hours. There are sandbag air raid shelters in front of the theaters, and entertainers donate their talents to service men on leave in the city . Every male family head is held responsible for individual aid raid shelters. Many Weddings But Few Honemoons | There is a rush to the marriage bureau. All weddings are in the daytime, because of the blackout. Honeymoons are few, because many of the bridegrooms are on only three hours' leave. Blackout regulations are very strict. Icebox lights must be unsecrewed, and all; radios and stove lights covered. One 'ingenious • housewife invented phosphorous tiddle-de-winks. Honolulu prepared for a dry Christmas, and all shops closed early. Store windows, criss-crossed with anti- shatter tape, looked like old-fashioned peep shows. Shopping crowds were greatly thinned. Sandbags before stores and other buildings were made from sugar sacks, burlap being at a pdemium. Food Return to Normalcy Family, Budget Will Enjoy Simple Meals By MRS. ALEXANDER GEORGE AP Feature Service Writer Getting the budget back to normalcy is the home-maker's problem following the holiday food spree. The family, too, usually relishes a return to simple meals, featuring such old time favorites as baked beans and brown bread, ham 'rock and cabbage and meat stew with dumplings. Gather up cheese leftovers until you have two-thirds of a cup. Mix into 2 cups of your regular biscuit dough (calling for about 2 cups of flour). These are to "be dumplings for this special stew: mix a cup each of cream of tomato and celery soup, add a cup milk, 1 teaspoon each chopped onions, parsley and Vi teaspoon salt. Pour into a cooking pan with tightly covered lid. Drop portions of the dough on top the soup (boiling gently). Cover and cook over low heat 20 minutes. No peeking or the dumplings might fall. Carefully turn the mixture into a serving dish. Before the hame bone goes into bean soup or is cooked with cabbage, cut off every bit of meat. Mix a cup of ham with 2 cups cooked noodles, 1% cups well seasoned white sauce (regular vegetable variety), chopped onion, parsley and celery for xetra flavor and pour into a buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with buttered crumbs or a little cheese or both. Bake 20 minutes in a moderately hot oven (375). You have enough to serve 3 or 4. This dish is nourishing and takes little preparation. Leftover soup can replace the sauce. MEAT LOAF LENOX: Mix 2 pounds of chopped raw beef— any economy cut as chuck or round — with 2 cups rice flakes (ready-to-serve cereal), 1 tablespoon each chopped onion, par- Commandos Feint Axis British Army Practicing for Drive in Europe By NOLAND NORGAARD AP Feature Service LONDON—Like a boxer who has learned the folly of standing up and trying to slug it out with a stronger foe, Britain's army is practicing a swift left jab. This punch will never deliver n knockout blow. Its task is to divert, to probe out weak spots in the opponent's defense and then stab quickly, keeping him off balance and perhaps making him lift his guard from another vital spot. Its collective name is the Commandos—carefully chosen volunteers who can think rapidly, fight hard with any weapon they find handy, and claro anything. Commando exploits—some real. others perhaps mythical—became legends told in British taverns long before the people generally were supposed to know the force even existed. Nearly a year ago American reporters returning to the United States told of swift night raids along the German-occupied French coast by small British forces which were said to have penetrated as far inland as Amiens on motorcycles. British officials frowned and'said nothing. In March, a riaiding force, with Norwegian sailors cooperating, boldly raided the Lofoten Islands off the Norway coast. While loudspeakers were telling the natives what was going on, troops seized the telegraph station, postof- fice and police station, sank 11- ships, burned fish-oil factories, and carried off more than 200 German soldiers in addition to 300 Norwegians eager to rejoin their refugee government. No word was then said about Commandos In April, an official announcement told of British raiders striking suddenly at night at Bardia, behind the German panzer divisions of General von Rommel which had chased General Wavell's army from Libya and threatened to pour on across Egypt. Scrambling from special landing boats, the raiders crept silently to the town, rubber-soled shoes muffling their steps. Shots and explosions which destroyed an important bridge, four coast defense batteries and supply dumps were the first warnings given the German and Italian garrisons. German armored forces hurried back from the front, relieving pressure on Wavell's troops, but when they reached Bardia, the raiders were gone—all but 60 men who lost their way in the dark. Even then Commandos was still only a vaguely remembered term for raiders who operated against British troops in the Boer war. But the Commando legend was growing. A United States aviator, home from Britain, told of "nightly" forays against the French coast, of silent figures who sstalked. their quarry—German officers—like American Indians and throttled their victims with piano wire lassoes. From French as well as United States sources came a story of raiders surrounding a Le Tourquet dance- hall, intending to grab Reichsmarshal Goering. He was absent, so the story goes, but other German officers present were taken outside and.shot. Other foreign sources heard of the entire German garrison on the little channel island of Sark being wiped out one night, of German soldiers fleeing in panic, leaving behind many dead, when a shower of hand grenades through the windows broke up a concert; of German officers and sentries disappearing mysteriously, of ammunition dumps near the French channel coast exploding mysteriously. Finally in October the War Gl'fice admitted a hand-picked group of troops was being trained in landing quickly from boats and handling virtually every kind of weapon. Soon after it announced the Bardia raid was the work of the Commandos. When, a few weeks later, the Germans claimed to have repelled a large landing expedition, an official statement said the Germans probably referred "to a small British patrol which was landed on the Night of Nov. 23-24 on the coast of Normandy." It added that the only casualty was one man struck in the arm by a ma- I chine gun bullet. • Meanwhile, Admiral of the Fleet! Sir Rogers Keyes, who was removed > from charge of the Commandos only a short time earlier, told Comons part . of the story. His son, Col. Geoffrey ' Keyes, was killed in the Nov. 18 raid on Rommel's camp This force of rough-and-tumble fighting men was recruited in July, 1940, when invasion of Britain appeared a matter of days. They were to bear the shock of the expected assault if the RAF were overwhelmed and invaders swarmed onto the island. The invasion failed to come, but the i Commandos and the military minds who conceived them were not content to wait. So they became an attack force specializing in quick left jabs to the Axis.
