Plan the Out-door Heal aft for A Formal Dinner—Hew Devices Add Real Comfort to Event. Ay JtMA BLANSHARD, NBA Service Write*. BROWN CITY, Mich., June 6.—The a picnic! That ia the real answer to that alluring call of the open road which sounds on the first hot day and^keeps 'resounding to all of us who must carry on at business or at home during the summer months. Since Adam and Eve really staked picnics, It Is no wonder the whole hu- 1 man race loves them. But since the human race has be-j come what Adam and Eve would prob- | ably regard as "soft," it no longer satisfies us to have just a bite in the ! open and call it a picnic. | We want satisfying food, hot food. We do not want to wait all day or all night for it and we want it served so we do not get all messed up eating it. We want a view to look at when eating. We do not want to be bothered clearing up for hours afterwards. To get maximum results in satisfaction, plan your picnic with the same care you would a formal dinner and your food must be appetizing, satisfying and sufficient. First, know exactly how many you are going to serve and provide plates, cups and so on for that number. Second, know exactly what you are going to serve, and time it so that your coffee is piping hot just when you serve the main course. Third, arrange your guests so that your picnic does not become a subway rush. There always are a Couple or three friends present who will help you serve your meal. Seat the rest and pass things. It is much easier and everyone enjoys being waited on. If you have pldnlc blood in your veins or if you feel you are about to become addicted to them, by all means invest In a picnic hamper. These come in durable wicker, have scientific planning so that they stow away the cutlery, the non-breakable cups, plates, napkins and cloth, and most of the food in an orderly and admirable manner. They come in all sizes, from those for just one couple to those which carry food for a dozen or more. If grandmother goes along on the picnic, or if you have a friend or two who are afraid of ants, and won't sit on the ground, you can get a collapsible steamer chair or a seat with back and arms that takes up scant space in the car and brings infinite comfort and peace to the lucky person to whom it is allotted. If you do not have a hamper, then get a large market basket and pack it scientifically. Paper napkins and cloth come in modernistic gay designs, with napkins large enough to be of service. There are sturdy paper plates and cups which do not leak or collapse the minute they got hot drinks in them. You can even get paste board forks and spoons and there is no denying that it ia with a certain sense of relief that you gather them .all together after the feast and burn them up. No dishes to wash I For a picnic you need either substantial sandwiches or a substantial salad with rolls or bread and butter. Remember that zestful appetite which inevitably attends a picnic. If you crave a, festive picnic, you can have delicately browned fried chicken transported to the site in wide-mouthed thermos bottles to be nerved there piping hot, or steaming Virginia ham cut hot and brought to serve hot. With chicken or ham you might serve tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise sandwiches, In rolls. Take your tomatoes and lettuce all washed, sliced and ready to pop into the rolls you have already cut and butter- story of a man who wandered from his cd.

When he was only 25 years old Murray, who could pronounce just three words, "Yes," "No," and "Dave," his uncle's name, because of throat paralysis, wandered into a swamp near his home and never returned. The countryside was diligently searched for the speechless youth and. his disappearance was widely advertised, but no word was ever heard of him. How long he lived in the swamp is not known, but one day he appeared at a farm and made gestures Indicating he was hnugry. The kind-hearted farmer took pity on Him and fed him, but was unable to learn his identity because Murray never had learned to write. Eventually he was taken to the county poor farm and there, only a short distance from home and friends, Murray spent most of his life among strangers, the victim of his affliction. Edward Murray, his nephew who your mind on exactly what you will was anly seven years old when Murray serve, planning exactly in what order disappeared and who vowed he would and exactly how you will serve it and having everything ready. And by all means, do not forget the necessary canopeners, corkscrews, knives, forks, napkins and other picnic equipment. Last and really very important, plan where your picnic is to be, be sure it have a fine view, and permits a fire.
