F. W. Buddy Poppy Sa Clears Funds for Welfare e V. F. W. Buddy Poppy day was success, according to Elmer Zeigler, poppy chairman of San Juan-Marne post. Sale of the poppies was promoted by the auxiliary with Mrs. James Edgington, chairman, who reported that about 10,000 were sold and cash receipts of more than $1,200, the largest Buddy Poppy day in'San Juan-Marne post's history"As commander and in behalf of San Juan-Marne post," said Victor Ostby, "I want' to thank the generous citizens of this community for their splendid support and co-operation in the successful promotion of this year's Buddy Poppy day. I especially want to thank the many Girl Scouts who so willingly aided the auxiliary in the sale of poppies. These Girl Scouts did a good job and added another convincing proof of the worthiness of their organization." Buddy Poppies are made by disabled veterans in the many government hospitals, so every poppy sold is a direct contribution to some needy veteran. All money above the cost of the poppies goes into post and auxiliary welfare funds to be used solely in aiding needy veterans and hospital patients. MRS.

I Ways to Serve Peas Green peas, top favorites among quick-frozen vegetables, are de- icious sewed time after time 'plain boiled — cooked the short Erects New Motel ime given in package directions n the specified small amount of idively boiling, lightly salted water— drained, if necessary, seasoned with butter, and pepper, if desired. They are garden-fresh in flavor at any time of year. But if your family likes variety, you can serve quick-frozen peas :n an almost infinite number of ways. Sprinkle them with mace, after adding melted butter, just as you are taking them to the table. Add a little very finely-minced mint just before serving. Or add finely-minced onion, about a tablespoon, when you cook them. Remember that if there is any liquid left in the sauce pan after cooking vegetables it should be used for sauces or soups, as it contains valuable nutrients. But there won't be much left if you cook according to quick- frozen carton directions. Some people like peas served with a little hot milk. Have the milk steaming hot and pour it over the peas when you dish them up. Add butter, pepper and, if needed, additional salt. A couple of tablespoons of chopped crisply cooked bacon or minced boiled ham add flavor, interest. French chefs have a trick of cooking peas with lettuce that produces a most delicate flavor. And peas make a wonderful luncheon mainstay if they are turned into a casserole, covered with a thin white sauce, sprinkled with buttered crumbs, placed in a pan of hot water and baked in a 450 degrees oven for about twenty minutes. Place 1 box quicic-rrozen green peas, thawed, in saucepan. Add 4 tablespoons butter and J teaspoon salt. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon minced onion, cover with lettuce leaves, and top with large sprig of parsley. Cover and cook gently 15 minutes, or until peas are tender. Remove parsley. Makes 4 servings.
