ALEJANDER GEORGE AP Feature Service Writer Pot-luck suppers featuring old fashioned, homespun foods will give you a party that probably will get down to fundamentals—lots of good, cheerful, friendly conversation and possibly n song fcst early in the evening. They don't take a lot of planning and if your time is allocated to no many activities that you haven't much to spare, you'll find it comparatively easy to fit such a party into your schedule. The cost, too, is surprisingly low for a table that sparkles with brilliant relishes—pickled beets, jellied grapefruit, salad and cranberry sauce—and fancy-looking dishes to tempt jaded palates. Savory Beef Pot Pie: If more convenient, start the day before and finish it at dinner time. Cut 3 pounds of any economy beef cut (chuck, neck, flank) into inch cubes. Sprinkle with flour, brown quickly in 1-3 cup chopped suet, bacon fat or lard. Add 1 teaspoon salt, 1-3 tesapoon pepper, ',!> teaspoon celery salt, 1 crushed bay leaf, 3 tablespoons finely chopped onions, 3 cups water. Cover tighlly, simmer 2 hours. Mix 2 cups each cooked diced carrots and small lima beans, >••• cup diced cooked celery, 2 tablespoons minced parsley, 1 teaspoon salt. Add to meat, cook slowly 10 minutes. Pour into 2 buttered baking dishes. Cover with "doubhnuts" or rounds cut from rich buscuit dough. Bake 30 minutes in moderately hot oven (375). This will serve 8 or 9 guests. Fruit Snow Pudding: Soak 2 tablespoons granulated gelatin in 1-3 cup orange or pineapple juice for ID minutes. Add 1 cup boiling water, stir until gelatin dissolves. Mix in cup sugar, 1-3 cup lemon juice,'2-3 cup orange juice, '/•> teaspoon salt. Chill until thick and syrupy. Beat until frothy. Lightly fold in 4 beaten egg whites with 3 tablespoons sugar added. Beat until peaks form. Pour into mold lined with orange sections. Chill. Unmold, cover and surround with chilled custard sauce lemon and vanilla flavored with a little toasted cocoanut, or sweetened whipped cream or a thick orange-pineapple sauce. Hamburgers on Toasted Rusks spread with butter, horseradish and chili sauce are easy to do and inexpensive. Blend 1 pound ground beef, '/a pound each ground veal and pork or smoked ham, I'/a teaspoons salt, 1-3 teaspoon pepper, Vi teaspoon poultry seasoning, 2 tablespoons each finely chopped onions, celery and parlsey or green pepper, 1 egg beaten, and 2 tablespoons cream. Shape into half- inch cakes. Brown quickly in a small amount of fat. Cover and cook 10 minutes. To broil hamburgers, brush with molted butler, broil unlil brown, turn to the other sides, brush with more butter and brown. Reduce heat, cook 7 minutes.

Dairy Products to Aid Program Warns Against Selling Products, Denying Self for large amounts of dairy products to be consumed as well as produced on IJempstead County farms, Miss Mary Claude Fletcher, county home demonstration agent, stated yesterday. With the present high prices of dairy products, Miss Fletcher pointed out, there may be a tendency for some farm families to sell too much milk and not keep enough for home use. In view of this situation, the importance of milk and dairy products in the diet is being reemphasized in the home demonstration program this year, Miss Fletcher said. Dairy products are rich in all the essentials of an adequate diet—calories, proteins, minerals, and vitamins—and deserve particular attention at this time when it is more important than ever that I £ CKUt; '' """ ""'"• " e "7 , Jon " so " OI iL t,»=Uh nf » wr vnnp h» hrr,,, D h. in Prescott.

Pointing out that one reason for lack of consumption of milk on farms J3 the quality of the milk, Paul Carruth of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture stated that since milk with undesirable bacteria, feed odors, and bad flavor is unpalatable, extreme care should be taken to iee that all milk produced is of utensils to see if they arc rusty or have broken seams; <3> obtain and use proper type of stainer, particularly the recommended single service cotton pad strainer. The type of utensils used, however, Carrulh stated, is not as important as good quality so it can be consumed i the care. The following suggestions PA the farm and the surplus sold. | make the cleaning of milk utensils The type of milk utensils used and | easier: (1) Rinse in cold water to re- their care can do much to improve the | move excess milk and fat; (2) wash quality of milk produced, the Exten- ! with scrub brush (not a rag) in hot iion dairyman stated, in urging farm water with alkaline washing power families to adopt the following pro- 'not soapj; (3) rinse in boiling water r*»im *.-. irrtnmlm ihf, rt1l--i\it\r f t f m!

Calendar Monday: 2:30 The Josephine Seaggs Circle of The First Biiptiu Chvuxh will Plant Trees, Add to Income Woodlands Planted Now Mean Future Incomes An acre of trees planted now will produce the paper, bags, corrugated paper containers, cartons and wooden boxes, crates and cases to ship food and feed for the next war just as the seedlings in the woodlands of the twenties are doing today. Plant trees today for the food and feed parkages tomorrow. According to Oliver L. Adams, co- mcet with Mrs. Wilburn Willis. ! unty a 8 cnt - farmers may secure 1000 seedlings enough to plant one acre for ?2.05. The farm program allows three dollars for planting one acre of trees and makes available §15.00 for each farm that cannot be received for any other farm practice. Idle acres planted during February will build up a farm morest for your home in the future. Among the species of trees available from the Arkansas Forestry Commission from the new nursery in Nevada county are Loblolly pine, short leaf pine, black walnut, calalpa and black locust. For the best success trees should be ordered during the next two weeks and set during February. The Ann Bagby Circle of The First Baptist Church will meet with Mrs. Roy Loomis. The Dorthery Garrott Circle of The First Baptist Church will meet with Mrs. Clarence Powell. The Missionary Society of the First Presbyterian Church will meet with Mrs. W. C. Reeves. come from any reactionary conspiracy on the part of capital and management but from prograssivo union leadership itself. The idea is simply this: Labor politicans today are making a big play for an increasing share of management. They base their plea on the contention that labor has just as big an interest and a lot more direct knowledge on how any given plant should be run than the mere stockholders of that company who simply shove in their evcess money with the hope that it will pay dividends. If that is the case, then labor has a responsibility to proat vethtoyh sponsibility to prove that it can contribute something to management. Labor must therefore put an end to any of its own pratices which are economic wastes, which tend to curtain production, which increase costs unnecessarily, which are mad management. Labor leadership, in other words, has assu.med the responsibility of proving to management thai labor can contribute as much about management as management itself. This is no mere battle of theory. Labor leaders won't talk about is much outside of labor circles, but within the unions themselves there is a difinite conflict between the younger, smarter, more progressive element and old-time organizers. These vctran local union officials still stick to policies of limiting the number of apprentices trained in any given trade, keeping the number of women in an industry at an absolute minimum because women can be hired at lower pay than men and therefore tend to keep the wage scales low opposing training - within - industry programs which lend to up-grade skilled em- ployes and teach those skills to less skilled workers who thus become competitors for jobs, obstructing the introduction of tccnological advcnccs like pre-fabricatecl housing which at first tend to be labor-saving, maintaining "make-work" practices which require the duplication of unproductive work, and so on. Co-()peniticin Plans Tried Doparlmont of Labor recently made a sludy of the growth of this movement for union-management co-operation, now one of labor's principal objectives in speeding conversion of goods to war production. The idea- gained considerable headway during the Collidge boom, but most of the early experiments were ended by the depression of 1929-33, when competition for jobs was every wage earner's principal worry. In some of the experiments, the idea of labor-management co-operation is carried to the extent of having union funds loaned to a company for expansion, the .sponsoring of sales and advertising campaigns to promote the company's business, joint lobbying for legislation favorable to an industry, and co-operation to prevtn bankruptcy of the employer and resulting loss of jobs for the employes. Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was one of the pioneers in this labor- management co-operation policy. In 1923 in one shop, B. & O. set up a system of shop committees to eliminate wasteful production. The experiment worked, and the idea was extended to the whloe system. The The Springfield, Mas., division of Wcstinghousc Electric adopted a similiar program iin 1937. A die casting plant in Poltslown, Pa., has a production research program, jointly financed by management and labor. Steel Wokers Organizing Committee since 1937 has offered a plan of co- optration with management in plants where the union is recognized, but few establishments have accepted it. Hosiery, millinery and clothing industries have probably advcnccd this idea of labor-management co-operation the farthest, culminating with the agreement of a year ago in which the International Ladies' Garment Workers' union and the New York City dress industry set up a program to increase efficiency and sales. Cashing In Mayor La Guardia's recent suggestion that all of labor's over-lime earnings and all of industry's profits be paid for in defense savings stamps and war bonds has been weighed in the balance and found wanting. It was a good enough suggestion as one device for preventing inflation by holding back money which might otherwise be spent on civilian goods, and fro providing enforced savings which might be spent beneficially during thi post-war recovery period. But the idea has to be abandoned for one very practical reason. As the stamps anc bonds are now issued they are convertible into cash 60 days after issuance.
