Miscellany M. 8. J • We doubt very much if the girls now need any tips on the subject of flirting. In honor of Valentine's Day, however, for what it may be worth, here is a short course on flirting from February Seventeen magazine: Show you appreciate a boy's ability to take care of you by such simple acts as taking his arm, permitting him to open doors or put on y o u r coat Give careful attention to his conversation. Don't go in for such corny maneuvers as straightening his tie or feeling his muscles, but do tell him you like his ties or the way he drives a car. And be smart enough not to try out your techniques on other males present. But flirting has pitfalls. If you want to captivate a boy, don't try to capture him like a trophy. The male animal runs from girls who chase, so the skilled flirt makes a boy think he's doing all the work. She doesn't besiege him with phone calls, repeatedly ask him to parties, stalk him on his daily rounds. It looks very much as if Mrs. H. F. Duvall's grandson, Steve Duvall, is following in the footsteps of his father, Denver Region Construction and Maintenance Engineer, C. L. Duvall, Denver, Colo. Steve entered the recent Soap Box Derby in Denver under the banner of Jamaica Chevron Service Station, and advanced up to the consolation finals. His soap boxer was a real engineering feat. Steve made the whole thing down to the intricate burglar alarm system to prevent sabotage. A story and picture of Steve appeared in a company publica tion. The Harold Shombers, 808 Tremont St., have returned from a winter vacation at Monterey, Mexico, where they visited many of the early Indian and Spanish historical points of interest. They made their sight-seeing trips from Monterey. They were accompanied by their son-in-law and daughter, Lt. and Mrs. James Rodenberg, San Antonio, Tex. The Shombers report that the winter storm reached even to this land of sunshine which made it possible for them to see the multi-colored blankets and large shawls in actual use. Mr. Shomber says if any person here doubt that it is indeed a blessing to live in the United States, they should visit some of the small towns and villages across the border and see the poverty and privations that exist there. Club Marks Birthdays Mrs. Myrtle Graham presided at yesterday's meeting of the Senior Club No. 1, which opened with a patriotic ritual and singing with Mrs. Margaret Williams at the piano. Rev.

Serving were Mrs. Josie Hall, Mrs. Smart, Mrs. Graham and Mrs. Brady. WSCS Circle Has Meeting Mrs. Harold Aston was in charge of the program for Elizabeth WSCS circle of First Methodist Church Thursday evening. She chose the title, "Love," dividing it into four parts, the young child and his parents, love of friends and teachers, courti ship and marriage, and love of community and the world around us. Others assisting her in developing the theme were Mrs. Allen Unruh, Mrs Clarence Higdon and Mrs. Melvin Dixon. Mrs. Dixon, devotional leader, told the Bible story of Ruth. Mrs. Olin Wollen presided, opening the meeting with a poem. The hostess, Mrs. Glenn Bieglow, was assisted by Mrs. Gene Miller. Mrs. David Towner was a guest.

As we go into our 12th year as operators of the North American Hotel and Coffee Shop, we wish to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support.

We sincerely believe that we need a hotel in Ottawa and your support has kept it here. Fern & Bruce Allison SIMPLE PREPARATION — Mrs. Carl D. Bobbish prepares appetizers by rolling thinly sliced ham slices about canned artichoke hearts. They are hearty enough for a light lunch. She garnishes the plate with parsley and strips of pimento. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith) For An Unusual Delicacy Serve Artichoke Hearts Several friends of Mrs. Carl D. Bobbish, 1137 S. Mulberry, give her credit for introducing them to the food delicacy, artichoke hearts. Are you acquainted with this vegetable? Actually, the dictionary classifies it not as a vegetable but as an herb somewhat resembling a thistle. The edible part of the plant is the heart of the flower fiead after the outer layers are peeled away. You can buy these, cook them, and shuck out the heart, but it is much simpler just to buy the canned artichoke hearts. "They are good just as they come from the can," says Mrs. Bobbish. "One can serve them with toothpicks to hold them. They have a slightly tart flavor from citric acid. You might want to set a dish of mayonnaise seasoned with prepared horseradish nearby for a dip." Mrs. Bobbish says she took a bowl of them to a church supper and garnished them with tomato and set a bowl of mayonnaise beside them for a sauce. For a nice salad set them on lettuce leaves along with wedges of hard- boiled egg and tomatoes. THey also make a nice addition to casserole dishes. Mrs. Bobbish says that one friend liked them so well she went out and bought up all her favorite brand and she found none available on her next shopping trip. A church supper was a proving place for Mrs. Bobbish's next recipe. Friends had liked the dish and after the supper she had several requests for it. The dish is somewhat like a souffle and, although it is good cold, it will not look as attractive. The sauce recipe came from a popular res- tuarant in Detroit, Mich. Don't let the name of this dish scare you. Spinach Loaf 2 boxes chopped frozen spinach 3 tbsp. butter 3 tbsp. flour Vt c. chopped onion 1 c. rich milk 1 pkg. G. Washington broth 3 eggs 1 c. grated cheese Cook and thoroughly drain spinach. Make a cream sauce of the butter, flour, milk and G. Washington broth. Add spinach and onion to boiling cream sauce. When these ingredients are hot, reduce the heat and stir in the beaten egg yolks. Cook and stir for one minute longer to permit the yolks to thicken. Add cheese. Whip egg whites until stiff and fold them into the spinach mixture. Pour into a greased container, set container in a pan of very hot water and bake at 325 degrees. Baking time is somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour. The sauce is whipped cream flavored with prepared horseradish and a little sugar. Serve it in a separate bowl. Mrs. Bobbish says she hesitates to include the G. Washington broth in the recipe as she finds it hard to get in this area. Somewhat like bouillon, it has a less pronounced flavor, and is listed in a number of recipes which Mrs. Bobbish gets from her mother, in the East. Mrs. Bobbish says the next dish was formerly the standard Saturday night supper in her household before the family included three small children. It is excellent either as an appetizer or as a main dish. It is especially good served with fresh asparagus spears. Shrimp On Toast l l /2 lb. shrimp in shells olive oil 1 stick butter 1 clove garlic juice of 1 lemon Vs tsp. basil very finely chopped parsley % c. vermouth salt freshly ground pepper Shell and clean the uncooked shrimp. Melt butter and crush clove of garlic into it. Cook for several minutes over lowest possible heat. Add-lemon juice, basil and parsley. Keep hot. Coat largest available skillet very generously with olive oil and heat over medium flame. When olive oil is hot, add shrimp and cook until they turn pink. Stir the shrimp frequently to prevent sticking and promote even cooking. Sprinkle generously with salt, Accent and freshly ground pepper. When the shrimp appear nearly done, add vermouth to butter sauce and cook for one minute. Pour sauce over shrimp and sim- mer five minutes more. Serve on toast. Something different in the way of snacks is in store if you try the next recipe. Mrs.. Bobbish says that when one couple was having a group of friends in to play cards, the man of the house called for this recipe. He said if his wife didn't get around to prepare it, he would. Spiced Pcans Cook almost to the soft ball stage: 1 c. sugar 1-3 c. water V-2 tsp. cinnamon dash allspice Add Vt lb. of pecans and remove from fire immediately. Stir until dry. Separate nuts and cool on waxed paper. Mrs. Bobbish says of the next recipe that it is an especially good way of preparing eggs for those people who often find their eggs get cold before they can finish eating them. Baked Eggs Grease heavy individual bak ing dishes with butter. Break two raw eggs into each dish. Break Hints From Heloise THE OTTAWA HERALD 9 Saturday, February 2, 1963 •* Cream Of Tartar Cleans Aluminum By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: Would you please tell me how lo clean my silver-type aluminum tumblers? I have rubbed them with soap [>ads until my fingernails are absolutely gone, tried all kinds of aluminum cleaners and the inside of the tumblers are the biggest mess you've ever seen. These are not " new but are a good quality and we love them, especially for cold drinks. The inside of them is' all dark and the outside doesn't look any better. Walter Merphy Dear Walter: Helois* I borrowed six aluminum silver- type glasses from one of my neighbors. Hers — and you believe it — looked worse than the description you gave me of yours. I, too, tried soap pads and scouring powders, But I found I also lost not only manicures but about three fingernails! Here is my very simple answer to your problem: Fill a very large pot — preferably aluminum — with hot water. (Later we will tell you why we are asking you to use aluminum.) We dumped two heaping tablespoons of cream-of-tartar into the water after it started boiling. Then we put in our aluminum goblets. Ours were hammered on the outside and had a rough texture. We let these boil until the a slice of sharp cheese onto top of eggs. Add 2 tbsp. of milk or cream. Sprinkle with salt, Accent, and freshly ground pepper. Add basil if desired. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Ladies' Shoes RE-STYLED We'll bring your old shoes up-to-date by replacing heels. CITY SHOE SHOP aluminum turned clean and all of the dark spots left. We kept the water at a rolling boil all of the time. This took about 30 minutes but I imagine the length of time would depend on how much "build-up" you had on your own aluminum goblets. If you cannot get all of your goblets in the pot at once, put in as many as you can and then take your tongs and remove them as each becomes clean, set them in your sink, and add the others. After this operation we found it shined the goblets if we took a thoroughly dampened soap pad and went over them gently. Rinse with hot water and dry. We now have the cleanest looking goblets in town. Before we dumped tlus water out — we took all of the woman's little aluminum pans and put them in this big container and let them boil also. Result? Shiny pans, and all the discoloration was gone. We also buffed this gently with a soap-filled pad. Now, here is really the reason we asked you to use a big aluminum pot: It got the pot clean at the same time! Don't waste energy by doing one thing at a time when you can kill two birds with the same stone. By the way, I have never seen anybody kill two birds with one stone. Have you? Dear Heloisc: I have two children. One is two years old and the other is nine months. Many families are in this same category. I have learned that if I put all of the little pants and diapers in the bottom drawer of the children's chest, I can ask my two- year-old to please go get mommy a diaper or a pair of pants—which* ever is the case—and this saves me time and steps! The two-year- old is very proud to be helping mommy. Mother Dear Heloisc: I use worn-out socks — especially the novelty knits and cushioned sole variety — for small scrub jobs. Then. . . I just throw the socks away. No messy rag or sponge to clean. If a little bandage will stop the tears of a three-year-old, isn't it worth the cost? I have found that even if the child's injury does not show, it stops his cries! Minnesota "Sweeter than Words" Russell S/over's Valentine CANDIES 318 S.
