MARY MORTON i Menu Hint I LUNCHEON Cream of Spinach Soup Crackers Baked Apples Whole Wheat Bread and Butter Milk DINNER Finnan Haddic Corn Pudding Slewed Tomatoes Coleslaw Lemon Pie CoCfce I think a good cream soup is an excellent luncheon dish, whether there are children in the family or not. It is excellent for them, and also for the woman who eats her luncheon alone and too often eats leftovers and nothing else, and often unappetizing or none too nourishing leftovers besides. Soup takes only a moment to make and may be concocted largely of leftover vegetables like spinach, corn, beans, peas, etc., combined with a thin cream sauce.

Federal Quality—You Can Taste Today's Recipes CREAM OF SPINACH SOUP— One cup cooked spinach, one tablespoon butter, one tablespoon flour, one pint milk, salt and pepper. Melt butter, add flour and mix smooth, gradually add milk, stirring constantly until smooth and at boiling point. Add spinach, chopped fine, or put through wire strainer, season, let come to boil and serve. Soup stock may be used in place of the cream sauce. FINNAN HADDIE-r-Cut fish in pieces the size you wish for serving. Cover them with cold water and set on to boil; let boil gently for 10 minutes. Make white sauce of one tabpespoon flour and one tablespoon butter rubbed together, and a cup of hot water, boil, season with salt and paprika. Take fish from boiling water, remove all dark heavy skin, place on platter and pour white • sauce around it. Garnish platter with parsley. Kind of Popper A closed and covered utensil— such as a skillet or heavy aluminum sauce pan—is best for popping corn. -The handiest popper on the market today is an aluminum sauce pan with aunique type agitator. With it no turning of cranks or shaking is required—just a quarter turn of a cool agitator handle keeps the kernels frisking round and prevents scorching. Leaves for Minneapolis.

DR. GARRY C. MYERS, PH. D. Child Psychologist PARENTS WHO can't find their Bible and want to read, or have read, to the family, the story of the First Christmas, can do so by reading this column today. I quote from the King James' Version. Luke 2:1-20. "And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. . . . "And all went to be taxed, every one unto his own city. "And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judca. unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) Went With Mary. "To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. "And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. . "And she brought forth her first-born son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger: because there was no room for them in the inn. "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. They Were Afraid. "And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. "And the angel said unto them. Fear not: for. behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. "For unto you is born this day in the city nf David a Saviour, which is Christ, the Lord. The Sien. "And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. "And suddenly there was with the ange] a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, goodwill toward men. ' "And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another. Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. Lying 1 in a Manper. "And they came with haste, and found Mary'and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. "And when they had seen it they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. "And all they that heard it wondered at- those things which were told them by the shepherds. "But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. "And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the thing:; that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them." Faculty Is Entertained. RUDD—The faculty was entertained Tuesday evening at the home of Supt. and Mrs. I. W. Edie. Five hundred was played. -High prize went to Miss Madge Waterhouse, low prizes to Miss Bernice Bobinhouse and Darwin Maurer, and men's high to Clarence Tesch. MRS. H. L. BOOTHROYD ! HOSTESS FOR HER SON Mrs. H. L. Boothroyd entertained a group of boys at a birthday party at her :-..ome, 38 Twentieth street southeast, honoring her son, Herbert Junior, who was celebrating his eighth birthday. Contests were conducted with prizes going to Roger Ward, Bobby Overturf and Donald Payne. The refreshments and favors car- i ried out the Christmas colors. Gifts were presented to the honorce. Correct Way for Ironing Is Described Ames Home Equipment Head Tells How to Make Task Easier. <VMES — "Ironing day rolls along more smoothly if the clothes are organized beforehand," says Dr. Louise J. Feet, head of the household equipment department at Iowa State college. If towels, napkins, handkerchiefs, pillow cases and similar garments are grouped together, those clothes which need not be sprinkled may be separated and folded at will, she suggests. If clothes are taken down while they still contain enough moisture for ironing they need not stand long, but if they have become dry. sprinkle them with warm water— it distributes more quickly than cold. Ordinarily clothes which have stood overnight iron much more easily. "Clothes should be sprinkled evenly with just enough water to take out the wrinkles," Dr. Peet states. Linens require more moisture than cottons, and fussy garments that take longer to iron, need more than simple ones. Clothes ironed by machine need to be less moist than those ironed by hand. "Arrange your equipment in the most convenient position, stand in a good light, stand on a rubber mat if the floor is too hard, and work in a cool, well ventilated place. Always remember to iron with the thread whenever possible: it prevents stretching. Iron each part dry, paying particular attention to the sesms, for moisture left in the material puckers it. Don't race the iron madly back and forth over the material; slow easy strokes' are less tiring and accomplishes just as much, for the material must be dried out anyway." ANDERSON-ESTEBOE RAKE—Miss Hazel Marie Esteboe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Esteboe and Ralph Clifford Anderson, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Anderson of Saint Cloud, Minn., were married Wednesday at the parsonage in Elmore, Minn., by the Rev. Mr. Gjerde. Madeline Esteboe, sister of the bride, and Harold Anderson, brother of the bridegroom, were the attendants. A reception was held for the immediate relatives and friends at the home of the bride after the ceremony. The bnfle was a senior in the Rake high school. The couple will leave after the holidays for Saint Cloud, Minn. D. K.
