READER COMMENT Dear Sirs: I see that you Intend to reprint some of Grace Sigsbee's columns ... I was very pleased to read this. I enjoyed all of Grace's columns and clipped many of her recipes, but the one that was my favorite was about cleaning out the closet. I took it to club and read it at roll call. The ladles liked it so much that one asked to use it at another club. Well, that was the last I ever saw of that column, so if you can find this one for me I will be most grateful. Mrs. Martha Albrecht 812 Main St. Rockwell City, Iowa - o - Editor's Note - We will be looking for the "Closet" column, and it will be reprinted as soon as we come to it in the files.
