I ! _ JBSTABUSHED 1865 VOL. 101 NO. 25 j aigona Upper Jlmm* LAMBS A rare event occurred at the Jerald Nelson farm south of EDITOR'S NOTE - This column of Woman's World is a reprint from the May 24, 1950 issue of the Algona Upper Des Moines. - o - AFTER MANY FALSE STARTS, spring has finally arrived. At least it seems so as I write this. Even yet, we could have a few snow flurries,.but it has been warm enough to infect me with a mild case of spring fever. What a climate we live in! One day we put sunsuits on the children and the next, we drag out their winter coats. But few people complain that our weather is monotonous. When the warm weather does come it's a great temptation to let indoor work slide and go sit in the sun. At our house, even the minimum of housework seems to take a lot of time. But I hang the wash and respond more often to the baby's almost constant demand to go "bye-bye" in her stroller. She doesn't care if we only take a tour of our own yard, just so she is out- of-doors. - o - MY FRIEND, OPHELIA, the kitchen cynic, excuses her spring laziness by saying, "It is impossible to throughly enjoy loafing, unless you have a lot of other things that you really should be doing". IN CHILDREN, SPRING FEVER TAKES the form of wanderlust. After a frantic search in which we enlisted Daddy's aid, we found our three-year-old and her pal, Inez Jane Hudson, at the high school playing on the slide. At bedtime I asked her if she had anything she wanted to add to her prayers. She bowed her head and said, "I'm sorry I had so much fun at the high school. And, God, I'm trying not to do it again." A lefthanded prayer, if I ever heard one. THEN THERE IS THE ONE case of my five-year-old nephew. He followed his heroes, the paper boys, downtown. He returned, a bit worse for wear with the report that the big boys had said that he couldn't jump off a high step. Well, Tommy is not one to doubt that he is fully as tough as any kid twice his age. He said, "I sure showed them I could jump off that step." And he did show them, but a badly sprained ankle put a crimp in his activities for several days afterward. - o - WE HAD OUR FIRST RHUBARB PIE the other day, and that's one sure sign of Spring. This week's recipe is for Rhubarb Cream pie, but we also enjoy the plain variety. Blend one cup sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, 1 teasp. grated orange peel and 1 tablespoon butter. Add 2 eggs; beat until smooth; pour over 3 cups cut rhubarb in a 9 inch pastry lined pie pan. Top with lattice crust. Bake in 450 degree oven for ten minutes and then turn down the heat to 350 degrees for 30 minutes. - o - I HAD A SIMILAR PIE RECIPE DURING the sugar shortage that substituted honey for sugar. The honey gave it an entirely different flavor. .. I have lost that recipe so if any of you have such a recipe, I would appreciate your sending it to Grace in care of the UDM. - o - GRATED ORANGE PEEL GOES WELL in any rhubarb dish whether it is plain pie, rhubarb upside-down cake or just stewed rhubarb. And wasn't rhubarb supposed to be a good spring tonic in the old days? - o - SPEAKING OF THE OLD DAYS, are there still quite a few people who plant their gardens by the signs of the moon? I have a friend who does this and though a lot of people call her superstitious, it is true that she always has a good garden even when her neighbors do not. She is practical enough to mix a lot of hard work with her unscientific methods and that may have a little to do with it. Another of her sayings is that on a rainy morning, if the water hangs in little drops on the clothesline, it will clear up enough sometime during the day for you to dry your clothes. MOST OF US CLAIM WE ARE NOT supersitious, but we all practice a few of them. Like knocking on wood when tilings are going smoothly; enclosing a new penny with a gift knife, so that a friendship may not be cut, and traditional "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue' 1 as brides. What is your pet supersitition? I'd like to hear about it, even if you don't have much faith in it. JEAN MINER COULDN'T HAVE HAD spring fever last week. She planned, prepared and served the most wonderful dinner to 50 women, Beta Sigma Phi's and their mothers! Her mother, Mrs. E. S. Kinsey, helped her during the afternoon, but other than that it was practically a one-gal project. The menu included tomato juice and crackers, chicken loaf with mushroom sauce (you'll get this recipe later), creamed new potatoes and peas, homemade rolls, jam and a big relish plate, one item of which was Jean's own homemade sweet pickles. There was lots of hot coffee and ice cream pie for dessert. It was all delicious, and the hot dishes were served hot in spite of the lack of cooking facilities at the State Park shelter house. If Jean decides to give up her job at a local insurance agency, she can certainly make a fine living catering. GRACE Seneca Man Will Visit Norway For Six Weeks will make a more extensive tour of European countries. Ricky and Debbie Johannesen will stay with an aunt, Mrs. Edna Johannesen, until their mother and brother return home. - o Mr. and Mrs, Clarence Osborn and David spent the Easter weekend at the home of Mrs. Osborn's sister and family, the Arnold Kueckers, Minneapolis.
