She Cooks Hearty Family Breakfast Nutritionists of today who express grave concern over the growing tendency of Americans to omit breakfast have nothing to worry about in connection with the Wayne Reichard family, one mile south of Homewood. The whole family, including father, mother, teenagers Alfred and Jean, and 4-year-old Dale, all eat a hearty breakfast. In fact, Jean 15, a Williamsburg High School student, not only eats breakfast, she usually cooks it. "I feel safe in saying that, in the past year, Jean cooked at least 300 of the 365 breakfasts for the family," says Jean's mother, and added, "She wouldn't put that many on her 4-H report, though, because she thought no one would believe it." This fzW. however, because Jean helps with the morning chores which include milking 40 cows, "she more often cooks the evening meal and only "lends a hand" with the breakfast. To show how it was all done, Jean recently prepared the breakfast from scratch, first calling her father at the barn by means of the inter-corn system to find out when he would be ready to eat. On the farm, there is no eating one at a time. The family gits down together, has grace, then 'puts away' a hearty meal which will provide energy until midday. First, Jean prepared frozen orange juice, then put link sau- sapes to cook in an electric skillet kept on the work table beside the electric stove. She then mixed biscuits from scratch and put them into the preheated oven to bake. While they baked, she took up the sausages and kept them hot on a platter. "How do you like your eggs?" the young cook inquired as she broke them into the electric skillet. "Cooking them for our family takes some watching since they all like different degrees ol 'doneness', and I try to suit everyone." As the eggs finished cooking •he prepared a kettle of oatmeal Her mother made the coffee since time was growing •hort, using instant coffee in this case although she says she prefers 'perked' coffee. Everything was finished about the time the piping hot bisuits came out o the oven. "That was the hardest thing to learn," says Jean, "the getting every thing done at the same time and keeping up with severa kinds of food cooking at once." "I told her at first that tha would come with experience, 1 laid her mother, "and it has. always turned the girls loose t learn as they wished and it ha paid off." She referred to Jean' two married sisters as well a the teen-age cook. The crowning touch of the mea was a jar of wild strawberrj jam made from berries picked o the farm, which received a hig rating from judges at fairs. Th jam was part of her food preser Miscellany By L.M.S. Did you know that you can pre erve some of the beautiful foli- ige available at this time of year with glycerine? The best part of t is that the leaves so treated can be kept from year to year and used in arrangements of Iried materials or with fresh lowers.

Heigele had the thrill of seeing their only granddaughter, Sherrill (Mrs. Herbert) Taylor, of Granada Hills, Calif., on the Truth and Consequences program F r i- day morning. Shortly before the program they received a letter from her advising that she would appear. Introduced on the program, also, as a surprise for her, was her husband who was flown from Fairbanks, Alsaka, where he is stationed with the U.S. Army. The couple's son, 5-month- old Michael Allen, was not on the program, but announcement was made that the father would soon see him for the first time. The couple and baby son will drive the family car to Port Angeles, Wash., to visit her mother, Mrs. George Schoenfeldt, and Mr. Taylor will drive the car from there to Fairbanks. His wife will be taken to Seattle, Wash., by her mother. There she will take a plane to travel to Fairbanks on the other half of her husband's ticket. Friends of Mrs. W. C. Harding will not be surprised to learn of a recent honor which came her way. She was one of 10 women who recently were honored for 10 years of service at a meeting of American Cancer Society in Wichita. wait to grow up and their foolish mothers are aiding and abetting them. And rushing the process inevitably breeds trouble. Putting Flat Flora in a brassiere advances her fantasy. She is playing at being grown up and her mother is part of the game. What she will want to do next is anybody's guess. Dear Ann Landers: I am sick at heart and need someone to tell me if I am wrong so I can apologize. My sister came to visit the fam ily. She lives 2,000 miles away and none of us had seen her for six years. She stayed with a niece who has a lovely, largi home. Several parties were given in my sister's honor and I was no invited to a single one. She wa here for ten days and I did no get to see her. When I heard she ide a complete answer when I ;et only fragments of the story. Dear Ann Landers: Frequently visited in the home of a friend who has a large Persian cat. I lon't happen to care for cats but whenever I go over there out of a roomful of people the cat picks me to sit on. Last evening the cat became ascinated with my shoes. He began to take a few swipes at my shoelaces. I said "Scat," but the icstess ignored my signs of displeasure. So did the cat. When I glanced down I saw that both my stockings were in shreds. The on,y comment from the hostess was "I hope they weren't expensive." Well, she should know you can't buy a pair of decent nylons for less than $1.15. Do you think the hostess should have offered to replace my stockings?— FUMING Dear Fuming: A good hostess pays for damage inflicted on guests by her minor children and pets. Dunkin.
