These No Routine Recipes *1 like cooking very much," •ay* Mrs. Joe Stephenson, 819 S. Hickory, "but tire of the unimaginative, routine sort of meals— •o I experiment with new recipes.'' This cook says she likes to browse through food sections of magazines and is always clipping new recipes. She can't resist cook books and has just acquired two new'ones, for her birthday and Christmas. Mrs. Stephenson says she usually tries the recipes out on her family, and finds her husband very easy to cook for, her children sometimes more critical. However, everyone is required to taste a dish and often is pleasantly surprised. The daughters, Peg, 14, and Gris, 10, assist with many of the family meals and are learning to use seasonings and gaining other experience. If they take over cook- Big a meal, they are required to wash up afterward. Mrs. Stephenson does not believe in last minute shopping but likes to buy food well in advance of meal preparation. She considers this an important part of meal preparation. Pork is a best buy at many seasons of the year and contains many valuable food properties. However, the taste of the following dish would be enough to recommend it to any cook. It was one of the gourmet foods served at the Grace Episcopal tasting tea. Sweet-Sour Pork \ l /i Ib. lean pork shoulder, cut in 2xVa inch strips 2% c. small pineapple chunks V4 c. brown sugar 2 tbsp. cornstarch Vt c. vinegar 2 to 8 tbsp. soy sauce % tsp. salt. 1 small green pepper, cut in thin strips % c. thinly sliced onion 1 can sliced water chestnuts 2 tsp. chopped candied ginger Brown pork in small amount hot fat. Add Vt, c. water; cover and simmer (do not boil) until tender, about 1 hour. Drain pineapple, reserving syrup. Combine sugar and cornstarch; add pineapple syrup, vinegar, soy sauce and salt. Add to pork; cook and stir until sauce thickens. Add pineapple, green pepper, onion, water chestnuts and candied ginger. Cook two or three minutes. Serve over hot fluffy rice or Chinese noodles and pass extra soy sauce. Makes 7 servings. For a company meal, Mrs. Stephenson often serves the Sweet- Sour Pork with hot rolls and the following green salad. The. flavors of the foods complement each other. German Spinach Salad 1 Ib. small, fresh spinach leaves % c. mayonnaise % c. sour cream 6 anchovies, minced iy* tbsp. chopped green onion Club Forecast Monday ZIOZAO CLUB, MM.

Mother used to wrap her woolens, etc. in newspaper. She never had to worry about finding them with holes caused moths. Rinse your crystal glassware in a vinegar solution. Drip dry and they will sparkle. Rubber should never come in contac with silver. Never put a rubber Helots* band around any silverware or you will get a permanent stain.

Hedrick 2-1111 How can a person tell when he is in love? When George kisses me I feel no emotion. I can't truthfully say I miss him although he has been gone since August. I enjoy his letters but they don't thrill me. Maybe I am not capable of deep emotion. Some of my girl friends tell me they get all rubber-kneed and goose-bumps when their boy friends are near. This has never happened to me. A few fellows at work would like to date me but I feel this would not be fair to George. I need some of your solid advice.—UNDECIDED Dear Un: Perhaps you'll never be able to get rubber-kneed or goose-bumps over any man, but to decide this at 19 would be a big mistake. Going steady with a fellow in the service is also a big mistake. You should date others, and George should, too. Your lukewarm attitude and indecision does not add up to the great love of the 20th century. Dear Ann Landers: So you don't approve of wife-spanking? Well, if you knew all the facts in my case you'd sing a different tune. I married an 18-year-old spoiled brat. She never did a thing at home and didn't see why she had to change her ways simply because she got married. She never cooked a meal from the beginning. Everything was frozen, canned or prepared in the delicatessen. The house was always a mess. She read cheap magazines all day and went to the movies four afternoons a week. I bought her a washer- dryer for the clothes but she couldn't learn how to operate it so I had to do the laundry on Sunday. When she took the dentist's money and got her hair dyed, I turned her over my knee and spanked her like the child she was. Since then, things have sure been different around our house. The little girl is all grown up now. Children should be spanekd—re- gardless of age.—HUSBAND OF A TAMED SHREW Dear Husband: 1 have no good conduct medals for men who marry children and "grow them up" with spankings. You both have my sympathy. and family members are not much help to them in shopping for a dress, for they won't come right out and say if they think the garment is, or is not, becoming to the shopper. For this reason, one Ottawa woman will really miss Mrs. Art h u r Brink, who retired a week ago froir Edmiston's. Mrs. Brink considered it one of her nicest compliments when this woman said to her. "Whatever will I do? I always depended on you to tell me what you really thought about the becomingness of a dress I was considering buying." It seems that women begin to be clothes conscious and suffer pangs of doubt about junior high school age. We heard several mothers of girls that age discussing the changes since their girlhood. Lois Many Attend Senior Club A good attendance was present for the Senior Club meeting Friday afternoon at Youth Center with Mrs. Myrtle Graham presiding. Opening numbers were the song, "America," and the flag salute, by the group. For devotions Mrs. Flora Sherman gave, "My Lesson," By Billy Graham followed by a prayer. Several members gave readings and discussed problems of community and country. Refreshments were served by Mrs. Margaret Williams and Mrs. Madge Marcell. girl may wear the same dress or skirt two days in the same week — but not on two consecutive days. Also, she is particular about her sweaters. She sometimes precipitates a family crisis when she comes down for school in the morning in her brother's sweater rather than the lovely one which she got for Christmas. Sometimes a mother's only con solation during this period in her daughter's life is that the next day will bring some different crisis It may be better, more likely worse, but at least different. Some of the mothers recallec that during their girlhood days i was the cystom to wear a dress to school for a week, carefully changing to an "everyday" dress upon arriving home from school It was necessary before the ad vent of synthetic fabrics and au tomatic washers.

Gretchen )car Hciorsc: I have been annoyed countless mes by having to discard one ubber glove because I have worn hole in the other glove. It always seems to be the same hand lat wears out first. Matching id seem impossible until. . . . One day, quite by accident, I emedied the problem by turn- ng the glove with the hole in it nside out when removing it. When I tried to put it on later thought I had two gloves for he same hand. I then discovered what had happened and re ilized that in the future I could ust turn the "left'over" glove in- ide out and match it with anther "left-over" one and have a new pair!
