Miscellany t. M. S. Study sessions and regular group meetings of most Ottawa churches have very appropriately focused on exploration of the dimensions of prayer during this Lenten season. Women of Grace Episcopal Church were fortunate to have jRev. Mother •Ruth, superior o' the Comma nity of t h e Holy Spirit, a religious order for women, to :onduct a school of prayer. John Hoppe son of Rev. and Mrs. Leopold Hoppe, plans to work again during the summer at the New York headquarters of the order as he did last summer. There is grass cutting and other chores at the headquarters just as at other places. We learned that the Department of Kansas, VFW Auxiliary, contributed $100 to Courage Cottages for Korean refugees. The cottages THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, March 23, STARTING THE PARTY - Mrs. Terry Vogler holds a triple-deck tray of appetizers as Mrs. Ralph Shaffer ladles punch into a cup which Mrs. Duane Hall holds. This first course of a progressive dinner by Omega Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi, was served recently at Mrs. Jim Dykstra's home. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith) Serve These Before Dinner Has your club ever given a progressive dinner. It is a good way to give several members an opportunity to have the members in their home on the same evening. Furthermore, it spreads out the work — and fun — of preparing the courses. Omega Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi sorority entertained rushees at a progressive dinner recently. Two of the members who pre- pared appetizers are working girls which influenced their choices of recipes. The first course was served at Mrs. Jim Dykstra's home. Mrs. Terry Vogler had prepared three kinds of appetizers ahead of time. At the last minute she arranged them on a three-tier tray ready to serve. One was simply made —just tiny bacon-wrapped sausages. The recipes for the other two follow. These little meat balls are tasty and have enough substance to give you "something to go on." Miniature Meat Balls 1 Ib. hamburger 1 c. bread crumbs • 1 egg 1 clove garlic 1 A tsp. salt dash pepper Mix all ingredients together and Hints From Heloise Can Make Mittens From Old Sweater orm into bite-size meat balls, fry until brown. Put toothpick n each for easy handling. Stack well on a tray or plate. Green pepper Pie makes very pretty little squares that you will not be able to identify. So easy o make, too. Green Pepper Pie 1 4-oz can green chiles 4 eggs 1 c. shredded sharp cheese Open can of green chiles and line pie tin with them. Cover with he shredded cheese. Top with he eggs which have been beaten stiff. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 :o 35 minutes. Cut into tiny squares. Mrs. Duane Hall had assembled ingredients for the punch and By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: Neighbor, unless you're very different from the rest of us, you have various old sweaters stored. They are too good to throw away and yet too worn to wear. So they just remain unused. Let me tell you how I put them to work. Good warm mittens for t h e brisk days can be made from these. Cut each mitten one inch larger than the child's hand and sew a French seam all around it. Finish the top Helois* with overcasting stitches. Then cut a band % inch wide and long enough to fit the child's wrist. Sew the band to the mitten and fasten with snaps. Mother Hey, Gals: You don't have to have a little one to use this. Don't throw away those old sweaters. This woman gave us a bright idea. Make a great big mitten out of these old cast-off sweaters. Make it to fit your hand, or better yet, if you can make it fit your husband's, you will save lots more energy. If you will make it 4 thick- nesses (and most sweaters have this much material) it will make the most terrific dusting cloth you have ever had in your life. If you can get two mittens out of one sweater, which is what we did, it's even better yet. Use one for polishing your furniture. Use the other for cleaning Venetian blinds! Here's how I made mine: I laid my hand down on the sweater as if I were shaking hands with somebody (4 fingers together, thumb out). You can take a piece of chalk, a drawing pencil, or even a crayon and draw around your hand. With your scissors, cut one inch larger around the line you have just drawn. Cut it off at the wrist bone. This makes a short mitten. Place this pattern over other parts of the sweater, Remember, you can cut open a sleeve and get another pattern or two. Cut as many patterns as you can from the sweater. Place 4 thicknesses together, putting the chalked pattern on the top. Stitch this on your sewing machine, not once but three times, using a small stitch. Do not put your hand in the middle layer of mittens. Leave three thicknesses of the material on the palm side of the hand when inserting it in the mitten. This way you protect the top of your hand from scratches when cleaning Venetian blinds yet you have three thicknesses of this beautiful absorbant material to polish furniture and collect the dust! Ladies, I can't tell you how good this idea really is. I figure that since we are not going to wear these cleaning mittens to a church social or to a bridge party there is no need to bind the wrist. It is a waste of time and who is going to see you when you dust? These mittens can be washed and used over and over again. Let me give you one more tip. Do not bother turning the mitten inside out to hide the seam when you wear it. It only makes more bulk inside of the mitten and that extra little inch around it will also gather more dust. If you doubt this, make one and see! Here is another thought that just struck us like lightning! Why not make mittens out of old blankets that are ragged and torn? Or an old chenille bath mat? Or those old ragged bath towels and hand towels? Whal else do you happen to have in the house? Ladies, we have to live and this is not only one way to save money, but it's going to save you energy. You don't have to buy it. Make it yourself and try it! Love you, Heloise Letter of Laughter: Dear Heloise: Here is a hint for new mothers have found that the best way to get a good "bubble" up aft er feeding the baby is to forget to put a clean diaper on your shoulder before patting her on the back.

The $100 gift buys the wood for door and window frames, homemade cement tile for the roof and the window glass for one cottage. Twenty of these cottages have been purchased by the National VFW Auxiliary. To the Koreans the cottage is a palace after living in tents or mud huts for years A sizeable project of the local VFW Auxiliary was a $50 donation to cancer funds. Of this amount, $20 was set aside for local use. The remaining $30 went to the National VFW Auxiliary fund. Brown paper sacks are such a convenience to carry all sorts of things in but they can be easily mixed if one isn't careful. One local woman employed in an Ottawa store had her mind on other things when she stashed a couple of them away one morning this week. When she took her lunch sack out of the store refrigerator she found the pair of shoes which was supposed to be in the sack under the counter. MR. AND MRS. ERWIN L.
