Mrs. Graham presided at the meeting which opened with a >atriotic ritual and gave a read- ng, "The Story of the Christmas guest." Mrs. Margaret Williams ilayed the piano accompaniment 'or group singing. Other members also took part in the program. Assisting in serving were Mrs. fenry Smart, who also baked a cake, Mrs. Josie Hull and Mrs. A. J. Brady. CUBAN FAVORITE - Mrs. Franklin Sheldon, 115 E. 9th, a former resident of Cuba, holds a chicken casserole popular with cooks of that,country. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith) Long, Slow Cooking Blends Flavors In This Casserole "Chicken Paellas (or Casserole) is a common dish in Cuba," says Mrs. Franklin Sheldon. "Good beef is hard to get but chickens are available on the market and are a good buy." The Sheldon family lived in Cuba when her late husband was in business there. Mrs. Sheldon recalls that in Cuba her maid or cook always made the dish and after coming here she had to experiment a little to do it as she liked it. She pointed out quickly that she was neither rich nor lazy. Haying household help in Cuba is the accepted way for business families to live as help is easy to get at very reasonable wages. The dish was one of the entrees served at the recent Grace Episcopal tasting tea. Mrs. Sheldon cautions that there is one secret to the preparation of the casserole: never let the rice get cooked to the mushy stage. The recipe serves 12. Chicken Casserole 1 stick butter 1 small onion ft small green pepper, chopped fine 1 can whole tomatoes 1 can tomato paste 2 c. water Saute onion and green pepper in butter. Add tomatoes and tomato paste and the water. Cut up one large chicken or two smaller ones and start cooking in the mixture. Add V4 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1 tbsp. salt, pepper to taste, and V* tsp. paprika. Cover and simmer until the chicken is tender and take the chicken out of the liquid. Add 2 c. rice to the liquid, add 1 A c. dry (white) sauterne wine and 1 tbsp. lemon juice. When the rice begins to cook add 1 c. stuffed olives. Add more water if necessary, but in small amounts. When the rice is almost cooked and still has some moisture in it, put into a casserole with the chicken and bake at 350 degrees until the rice is tender. Garnish at the last with tiny green peas and sliced hard- boiled eggs. The casserole may be prepared ahead, refrigerated, and baked just before serving but in this case leave the rice still very firm. Serve with French bread and a green mixed salad. Mrs. Sheldon says that families who are particulary fond of fish may use the same recipe except for substituting 1 Ib. of a white meat fish, 2 Ib. lobsters and 2 Ib. shrimp. For the fish dish add chopped fresh parsley. A favorite salad ingredient which Mrs. Sheldon used in Cuba was the avocado, which grew large like melons. An avocado half filled with crab meat, mayonnaise, spices and olive oil, Miscellany M. S. ' J Versatility is a key word in all areas of living today. It's sometimes difficult to determine what kind of store one is shopping in when there are foods, medications, books, plants and what-have-you available. In the same manner, an organization keyed to a certain activity does not necessarily confine programs to that area. The Ottawa Garden Club has expanded p r o- g r a m s to in elude showings of slides, not always of gardens, and, at Lois the last meeting had a speaker on the subject of safety from The State Highway Department. He told that highway safety measures scheduled to be introduced in the 1963 legislature are, briefly: 1. Periodical eye examinations for all drivers. 2. A behind • the • wheel driver training course for all persons 18 and under. 3. Addition of 100 state highway patrolmen to the Kansas Highway Patrol in the next two years. Packaging for household necessities, goods and cosmetics are becoming more attractive than formerly. Actually, though, beau tiful "packaging" is not really new. Mary Jane Forest, home economist, points out that "Ancient Greek vases, acclaimed by art experts and prized by museums, were used as containers — the packages — for olive oil. Merchants vied with each other to produce the most beautiful vases.' "It's pretty cold when the "juice" to an electric yard light freezes up," said one young Ottawa business man when the thermometer registered 5 below zero. Actually, the cold affected a photo cell or some such gadget. When the temperature rose, the light came on. The cold also affected some fluorescent business signs. A few evenings ago while walk ing on an errand on the west side of Main street, north of 10th, we nominated Miss Grace Metz, retired teacher, as householder with the cleanest walk. She had previously kept the wide walk shoveled free of snow and was, at that time, sweeping off the latest flurry of powdery snow. Nice contrast to molt walks. or with combinations of pineapple, mangoes, grapefruit and oranges, was almost a luncheon in itself. Another popular entree at the tasting tea was tiny meat balls in garlic - tomato sauce. .The recipe belongs to Mrs. Jack Bennett who is sharing it with Her aid readers. It is intended that the meat balls be served sepa rately from the sauce which is used as a dip. However, if preferred, the sauce may be served over the meat balls. Meat Balls With Garlic, Tomato Sauce 2 Ib. round steak, ground twice to make fine % c. dry red wine Vi c. chopped onions 2 garlic cloves, minced 2 eggs, b'ghtly beaten Vi c. butter 1 tsp. salt fresh ground pepper Combine all ingredients except butter. Shape meat mixture into bite-size balls. Saute in butter until brown. Garlic-Tomato Sauce 2 garlic cloves V* c. tomato juice 1 A c. cooking oil *A c. red wine vinegar Va c. beef bouillon Vi c. finely chopped green pepper 2 tbsp. finely chopped onion Vi tsp. cumin seed l /4 tsp. crushed chili pepper dash Tobasco sauce cayenne pepper 1 tsp. salt Crush garlic with salt. Combim with other ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and sim mer for 15 minutes, stirring oc casionally. Yields about 2 c.

Anderson recipe, which she got from he mother, Mrs. M. S. Winter, Law rence. Sweet French Dressing H c. sugar 1 tsp. salt % tsp. pepper 1 tbsp.

When washing these types of rugs the water should never be iver 105 degrees. When drying them in the dryer it should be set at the abso- ute lowest pos ible tempera- ure.

CITY SHOE SHOP Hints From Heloise Hot Water Ruins Non-Skid Rugs Helots* baking soda (or a product made especially for soaking diapers) to a gallon of lukewarm water in which I soak my baby's diapers. By adding a few soap chips to the solution (especially the deodorant soap variety) I have found that the odor will disappear almost entirely. This is also a good way to get rid of those small pieces of soap that just clog up our drains. The baby's morning diaper will be the one containing the most ammonia — after he has worn it all night. I give this diaper a quick rinse in hot water before tossing into the pail. Mary Mallard! Letters of Laughter Dear Heloise: Please tell me, do other wives hate housework as much as I do? I'm being cooped up and am minus companionship for long periods of time. If I live to be a million. . . I will never grow to like it — tolerance is the best that I can do. Heloise Fan Dear Fan: Glory be, how I love you. You put it in such simple words . . . We all hate housework! It is boring. It is repetitious. It is disgusting. It is belittling. It is degrading. I hate it too! But we all gotta do it! Look at it this way: It is something that many women do not have. Be grateful for it. I do not tell you how to be grateful because I am not grateful either! I hate it myself! I detest making beds and washing dishes. But I know I have to do it So. . . I do this by telling myself that at least I am getting something distasteful out of the way. At least my beds are made and the dishes are done. According to my letters, 90 per cent of women hate this job. We know, you know it and I know it. So. . . we know as long as we sleep in a bed and eat we still have to make beds and wash dishes. So. . . do it with the thought in your mind that you are build ing character. Use the beat - the - bell method or beat-the-coffee-pot meth od, which means put your coffee pot on or set the timer on your stove for not more than ten minutes — and then try to get those beds made and the dishes washed before the bell goes off or the coffee is ready to drink. I love you always, Heloise P.S. My mother told me when I was a little girl that I was "building character," when 1 had to wash the dishes — I hated it at the time but now I know THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, January V, 1963 Plan Rite For Feb. 2 Mrs. Paul P.

Mr. Arnett, a University of Kansas graduate, is associated with Myron Green restaurant in Topeka. she was preparing me for the future. Dear Heloise: When I am sewing — and doesn't every mother — and we are so stupid as not to take your advice and sew in the kitchen because we have become accustomed to sewing in the bedroom where our sewing machine is and which usually has a carpet.—I have found that I can dampen a vegetab lebrush with water and brush it over all the threads which have become adhered to my carpet and they "get up" in a big ball. Then, I just pick these little balls up quickly and my carpet is clean. I know this is not your answer but it works for me. I am an oldtimer. Cathey Silva.
