By NADINE ALLISON SOCIETY EDITOR i Good meals should be well icockcd. attractive to the eye, suited to the family pocketbook and one that will not keep the homemaker in the kitchen all day. They also should be well balanced as to food value, in order to keep the family fit. * It is by no means a simple matter to keep all these things Tn mind when preparing meals day after day, week after week. It is so easy to get into a cut. by preparing ^almost the Same dishes each week. It • is a good idea to try new recipes. If your family does nol like a particular one. . . just throw the recipe into the waste basket. . . tell your family you won't use that one again and |ook for a different version. It is surprising how many good Elishes you learn to make by -just trying something different. * At this time of year hot breads goes so well on a cold day. The aroma will fill the household and really ?.dd to' ©nes appetite. Here is a good Jpne to try. RAISIN CASSEROLE BREAD ." 4U to 4% cups unsifted flour, i. One-half cup sugar. " 1 teaspoon salt. „ 2 packages active dry yeast. " 1 cup milk . One half cup. water. - One -half stick margarine. I 1 egg (at roorn temperature) * 1 cup seedless raisins. In a large bowl thoroughly mix one and one-half cups flour, sugar, salt and undissol­ ved yeast. * Combine milk, water and margarine in sausepan. Heat over low heat until liquids are warm. (Margarine does need to melt). Gradually ; add dry ingredients and beat two minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, Scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1 cup flour, or enough flour to make a thick batter. Beat at high speed two' minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir l'n enough additional flour to make a stiff batter.

Remove from casseroles | and cool on wire rack, i -o- -c- -o- ' | Tests show that it costs less - to open a refrigerator door a j few times for longer periods that it does to open it often for shorter periods. . . Before discarding that old pincushion, tear it apart. You'll be surprised at the needles inside. . . Store split brown paper bags in a handy place in the kitchen. They're handy when you want to drain the grease from fat- friend foods. Before discarding an old garment remove the snaps, immediately fasten them together over a sheet of ordinary writing paper, and place them in your sewing basket. Then, when you need snaps to sew on a new garment, you will have them at your fingertips. -o- -o- -o- Coleslaw makes a fine accompaniment dish for 'many a meal.

Abigail Van Buren Old Bachelor Looks For A Bride 1009 JAIM'68 M.f. 49 6ffHWWM! $ 5 M RACK Go-Ordinated Separate Dresses and Blouses 40% OFF All Shoes 30 % OFF New Spring Merchandise Arriving Daily Jo ELLAS WEST SHOES One Door West of Post Office SPORTSWEAR DEAR ABBY: Time has passed too fast. I am an old bachelor (now 70) but I'm in good health, have a nice home, automobile, and my hobby is raisin roses. Sometimes I get a little lonesome for femal companionship (not sex, I'm all thru with that) r-nd I'm wondering if maybe I shouldn't marry one of those eld widows who has been after me. I know I'm not perfect, but there always seems to be something wrong with the women I meet. Either they are looking for a meal ticket or they talk too much. What do you think! CONSIDERING DEAR CONSIDERING : W h y not? But be sure you g»il a quiet woman who's not looking for a meal ticket, wants only male companionship, and is also "thru with sex," or you'll have a bigger problem than loneliness. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I recently had a lovely dinner party in our home. One of the couples asked us in advance if they could leave a little early because they'd left their child r.t thome ill. Naturally we said yes. Well, almost immediately after the dinner this couple put on their coats and made the round of all the guests saying good night. Needless to say. they broke up the party as others started leaving right after they did. My 'husband said he didn't see anything wrong with their saying goodnight to everyone, that if they just sneaked off it would have shown worse manners. I think he is wrong and told him so. What do you think? ELSIE DEAR ELSIE: I think guests who depart "early" should do so as inconspicuously as possible. (I also' think your husband wp.s probably glad to call it a night and get to bed himself.) DEAR ABBY: I think your definition of "KARMA" needs to be clarified. It is not merely the clam acceptance of one's "destiny." It is the belief that whatever good or evil a person docs during his present life time will be returned measure for measure in some future life. To make it more simple, "As ye sow, so shall ye reap." Sincerely, A BELIEVER CONFIDENTIAL TO "TO CLEVELAND": Your husband could be going thru the male counterpart of "change of life." A man who has worked hard for 27 years, and has been a good husband and father, is not likely to go off the deep end permanently. Almost every mnn after 50 become? a little worried about growing old, and losing his appeal. His ego needs a boost, and there is always that predatory female around, ready to flatter him and make him f<»el "young" again. He falls like a ton of teakwood; then the big thrill wears off and he comes trotting home to mama, feeling a little ashamed, but with a nice warm glow inside, knowing there is life in the old boy yet. The smart wife doesn't put on an academy award scene. She swallows her pride, accepts a little "blame" for not being as affectionate and reassuring as she might have been. And above all, she never mentions it again an she tells NO ONE. If the woman above is you, and the man is your husband, follow this advice, and your man will spend the rest of his life knocking himself out trying to make it up to you. Everybody has a problem.
