£lub soda pancakes are light treats Wednesday, November 18,1961 — The Salina Journal Page 17 flair HeloiM: Would you please repeat your recipe for pancakes made tftth club soda as soon as possible. My friends think I'm kidding when I Ufll them how good they are, so I prom- iW to give the recipe to all of them bpf of course I couldn't find it. I should have memorized it! Please hurry, as I!d like to have some more of the pancakes too. — Marion Bristol Sur& can't blame you for that, 'cause once you've tasted those mouth-watering goodies, they're hard to give up. To please your tastebuds and to keep you on good terms with your friends, here's how to make those lighter than air treats: JJse two cups of a good biscuit mix, one egg, one-half cup oil, and one and one-third cups club soda. ^Jix'well; pour onto a hot griddle for pancakes or into your waffle iron for delicious waffles. Since this batter is of an effervescent nature,' you can't store it, so cook all of once and then freeze the pancakes or waffles. Some morning when you oversleep, jujt pop them into the toaster for a hurry-up, yet special breakfast! — Hugs, Heloise ; * * -fr Pear Heloiie: Use newspapers to dry your newly-washed windows... You will save money and, a bonus, the windows will have a beautiful shine. £- Eileen Ray ; ' * if -tt Dear Heloise: As an organic garden- erj I save such things as egg shells, coffee, grounds, peelings, etc., in a small: plastic pail which is emptied whenever needed. However, sometimes, as when the pail included onion peels, there was an unpleasant odor. One day, after washing the pail, I put a fiandf ul of cat litter pellets in the bottom, replacing them with fresh ones each time the pail was emptied and washed. fto'opre offensive odor. — Mrs. Lo- refto Reid ? . * * -tt Dear Helolse: With Christmas around the corner, if you are stumped again as to what to give someone on yoUr list who is in a nursing home, here are a few suggestions: Fresh flowers will brighten their day; .soft candy is nice, but please check with the nursing home staff to •ee if the resident's diet permits it. Hair pins and nets almost always are needed; nylons or socks are constantly in demand. Colorful blankets and lap robes are groat for the cold days and nights. Pretty nightgowns or handsome nightshirts with open backs and ties are always, convenient for the nurses of the bed-ridden patient. Hand lotion, sham- pod and body powder can always be used; But, the best gift of all? Yourself! - G.S. r * * * Dear Heloiae: Your hint, "Don't handle it twice" has saved me countless amounts of time and energy and steps too. Really helps me get things done. — Mrs. Cles Allison * it * Daar Heloife: When cooking something, such as pudding, that may scorch, use a pancake turner instead of a spoon to stir with. It covers a bigger area. — Mrs. David Mortiz Beaded ornaments feature of class The Saline County Extension Service will sponsor a beaded Christmas tree ornament class on Nov. 19 from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. and from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in Room 109 of Government Center.

Pickrell, Pomona Park, Fla. heloise II hints from heloise Dear Heloise: I have often read letters asking you to repeat hints. Thank goodness, I'm not the only one who forgets where the hint was put. So, will you please repeat the recipe for a Hot Chocolate mix? I know it was powdered milk, cocoa, and powdered sugar, but I don't remember the amounts to use. — T.T. In that case, grab a pencil and a piece of paper and jot this down as I'm happy to give you the recipe again. You other folks might want to do the same thing, 'cause a cup of this brew is hard to beat, especially on nights when those blustery winter winds start to blow. Mix together two cups of powdered milk, one-fourth cup cocoa, one cup powdered sugar and a dash of salt. You can use a sugar substitute, if desired. For a richer mix, add one-third cup powdered non-dairy creamer and/or a tablespoon or two of malted milk powder to the above mixture. To use, put about four tablespoons of the mix (use more or less to suit taste) into a cup of boiling water. Add a dash of whipped topping or vanilla ice cream, if desired. In a jiff, you'll have a delicious drink that will make you forget all about those cold winds outside. Wish we could have a cup together! — Hugs, Heloise •fr 6 -tf Dear Heloise: When shopping with my nine-month old baby, I take toys which can be tied with yarn onto the shopping cart or stroller. Keeps baby cleaner and Mom doesn't have to constantly retrieve toys from the floor. — Esther Witsman <tr -tr -tt Dear Heloiae: I'd like to share a hint I've tried and am very pleased with. I have a king size bed. The velvet headboard had faded so badly it was ugly. After deciding I had little to lose, other than recovering the whole thing, I purchased two packages of fabric dye. I mixed them in a plastic bucket and with a sponge, and wearing rubber gloves, proceeded to dye the headboard. I placed the headboard flat on two garbage cans outside under the shade of a tree. It turned out just beautiful, prettier than I ever imagined. I let it dry completely in a shady spot outside, then brushed up the pile. - Cecile Speidel It's worth a try to salvage most anything.
