The women serve a daily average of 230 rolls is Mrs. Mabel Matlock, manager and cook for the Williams- pupils. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith) burg hot lunch program. Mrs. Don McMillan, head cook, stirs Pupils Like Hot Lunches At School One group of Franklin County mothers has no worry about planning and preparing nourishing lunches for school children of families represented. Neither do these mothers have to worry about their children getting proper foods. The children in question attend Williamsburg schools and participate in the hot lunch program which has been in operation for 15 years. The program is self-supporting except for the purchase of large equipment and costs each pupil only 25 cents for lunch. The faculty members each pay 30 cents. Mrs. Mabel Matlock is manager and cook, and Mrs. Don McMillan is head cook. Part time assistants are Mrs. H. N. Trabert and Mrs. Herbert Johnson. F. E. Young, custodian, also lends a hand. "We serve an average of 230 lunches each day," says Mrs. Matlock. "Menus are planned under government supervision. For type A lunch, we must serve at least two or three ounces of protein food, one-half pint of milk, a portion of bread, three-fourths cup of vegetable or fruit combination, there must be a vitamin C food, at least two teaspoonsful of butter, and at least twice weekly a vitamin A food." Mrs. Matlock plans her menus about a month ahead and can flip the pages in her Kansas school lunch menu planning book to tell you what is planned for any certain day. A part of Mrs. Matlock's work is figuring the cost of every meal, and the labor cost. She reports there is very little waste. One favorite with the children is chili, according to Mrs. Matlock. She says it is not the most popular with adults, however. She plans to have some of the ground meat kept out separate for those who cannot eat the chili with beans. She serves this meat with some other vegetable for these persons. Faculty members express great appreciation for the cooks' accommodation to their diet problems. One favorite food is hot dog roll-ups. With these they may serve baked potatoes, creamed peas, carrot and celery sticks, cake with fruit sauce, and milk. Hot Dog Roll-Ups Preboil wieners and provide strictly fresh bread which is buttered with mustard butter, softened and spread on the bread. Add a slice of cheese on top of the bread and a wiener on top of that. Roll the bread cornerwise and fasten with a toothpick. Brush lightly with metled butter and broil. To make the mustard butter, add Vz c. prepared mustard to 3 c. butter and cream together. "It is surprising sometimes what children seem to like best," says the veteran cook. "Surprising as it may seem, the children's favorite salad is cole slaw. I do not know why since I fix it very much like anyone else and a number of mothers say their children are not fond of it at home. The children always like some kind of dessert. The cooks serve canned beef, one of the government commodi ties which they get, as barbecued beef. They slice the meat as it comes from the can and spoon a mild barbecue sauce over it. Here is the recipe to make about two gallons of the sauce. Barbecue Sauce 1 No. 10 can tomato paste 10 onions, ground 1-3 quart mustard 1 serving spoon chili powder 1 tbsp. celery salt 4 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce 1 tsp. pepper 1V4 lb. brown sugar 3 c. vinegar Mix and simmer together. Mrs. Matlock reports that the government foods they get in unlimited quantities are lard, pea beans, peanut butter, flour cornmeal, whole wheat flour, butter, rice and powdered milk. They will receive limited amounts of canned peas, cheese, green beans, apricots, cherries, peaches, cranberries, tomatoes. There will be some turkey, chicken and possibly ground beef. A simple dessert called Crazy Cake is a great favorite with the children, the cooks report. In large quantities, they prepare it in assembly line fashion with one woman mixing the dry ingredients and another adding the liquids. The recipe here is a home size one which you can mix right in the pan in which you plan to bake it. Crazy Cake 1 c, sugar IVa c. flour 4 tbsp. cocoa 1 tsp. soda Mix well. Sift or stir with wire whip. Add: 1 tsp. vanilla-1 tbsp. vinegar 1-3 c. salad oil (if melted butter, add VB more) Pour 1 c. cold water over the mixture and mix with wire whip. 40«9 J§ STARTS VZ4 TOMORROW BOX OFFICE OPENS 1:30 P.M.

Then put fruit by spoonfuls on top of the batter, leaving spaces between. Bake at 375 degrees. The batter comes to the top leaving a fruit sauce in the bottom. Faculty members are enthusiastic about the program. "The children do better work and are less restless, fatigued and headachy when they have good hot lunches," several report. "The women do much more than just cook meals," says another faculty member. "They have a pleasant word for each child or teacher who files past the serving window." Another teacher told that the cooks have bouquets of flowers on the tables. She says politeness is stressed and it all adds up to nicer meals. Some of the lower grades sit at tables with their teachers and have grace before the meal. Mrs. Matlock says it works well to have girls assist. One takes the lunch count, another two serve the mid-morning milk to the first four grades and two brush up the floor after the meal. They get their meals furnished for their services. This year the school added a 21 cubic foot freezer. Other large equipment includes a 12-foot freezer, three refrigerators, a family size gas range and a 10-burner range with two large ovens. Mrs. Matlock says she has al so added a big 20-inch cast iron skillet with two handles, fine for frying fish or preparing hashed brown potatoes. Also purchased were a heavy duty can opener and more silverware. "We ask that every child take some of each food served," says Mrs. Matlock. "If a child particularly does not like a certain food, he may say, 'a small portion, please, and we cut down the serving. We have found that, in most cases, the children eat the food we give them."

High time, in fact, to start that holiday gift planning if you haven't already. Plans are underway for the annual Christmas party for the patients at Osawatomie State Hospital, according to the superintendent, Dr. George Zubowicz, and volunteer service director, Rosalie Bowker. If you wish to share in the an nual Christmas gifts project you may send or bring your gifts to t h e volunteer services building Each year gifts are re- c e i v e d, sort- LOIS ed and wrapped for some 500 patients who must remain in the hospital and might not otherwise be remembered. Many clubs last year selected a gift for a ward that could be enjoyed by all. These included subscriptions to a TV guide and other magazines, Viewmaster sets and slides, popcorn poppers, coffee pots, parakeets, fish, electric razors, etc. Individual gifts might include wearing apparel and accessories, cosmetic items, sewing and handwork aids, books, magazines, stationery and miscellaneous items, Ottawa had its own gathering of Japanese last Saturday eve ning at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Ray Jennings. It is fortunate that the Jennings family had a cou pie of Japanese girl houseguests while Rev. Seicho Azabu, Buddhist priest from Tokyo, Japan, was in town. The priest stopped off to see the J. P, Haggards and Gail Nitcher with whom he has corresponded. Ray Jennings greeted his caller in Japanese and continued to talk in that language during the visit. He taught for nearly 10 years in the Baptist university in Yokohama, Japan. The houseguests were Setsuko Pujiwara and her sister, Kieko Fujiwara. Setsuko attended Wil liam Jewell College and finished nurses' training. She left Tuesday by plane to return to Yokohama. Her sister just came from there to attend Bolding School of Dress Design, Kansas City. She has been teaching dress design in Japan. The other girls, who came in for the evening, are O.U. students, Michi Shirayama, a senior; and Junkq Nakajima, a special student, who came to Ottawa last month. Grandparents are always thrilled to hear about the doings of the little folks, particularly when they live at a distance. The Guy '• Briscoes heard about a cute remark of one of the wee ones of the Bill Millers who moved to California from Ottawa. Hearing his mother talk about going to • "shower" for a good friend, he asked, "Why do you all have to help Jody take a bath?" In his limited experience, a shower could mean only one thing. Achievement Day Set Logan Smith will be speaker for Franklin County HDU Achievement Day to be held in First Methodist Church Tuesday. He will talk on the history and use of china. Exhibits will be in place by 11:15 a.m. A potluck luncheon will be held at 12 noon. Another program feature will be a short style review by members who have participated in pattern alternation workshops. PENN Club Forecast Monday EXEMPLAR CHAPTER.
