Young Cooks Learn Basic Principles In Classroom Girls in 8th grade food classes learn many things which form the foundation for more advanced work. One of the things they leam is how to make white sauce. Because white sauce is the basic ingredient of many fine dishes, every cook should learn to make it well. White sauce is classed as thin, medium or thick. The procedure for making them is the same, but the proportions of ingredients vary. You may want to clip the chart given for proportions and keep in your recipe file. Here is how to make it. White Sauce Melt fat in the top of a double boiler over direct heat. . When fat is melted, add the flour and salt, stirring until fat and flour are blended. Keep heat low and stir constantly, so that the mixture does not burn. Add the milk slowly, stirring to keep the mixture smooth. Cook until the mixture boils and thickens. Replace top of double boiler over hot water to keep warm. One of the foods the girls make using white sauce is Cream of Tomato Soup. The following recipe makes 4 servings. Cream of Tomato Soup 2 c. canned tomatoes 1 slice onion 1 tsp. sugar 2 tbsp. butter or margarine 2 tbsp. flour 1 tsp. salt 2 c. milk Put tomato, sugar and onion in a saucepan. Cover and cook at simmering temperature about 5 minutes. Press through sieve. Return strained tomatoes to the saucepan and keep warm but do not allow to boil. Make white sauce. Just before serving pour strained tomato mixture slowly into the white sauce. Stir while pouring to keep mixture smooth. Serve at once.

Hints From Heloise No Fireplace Mess With Moist Ashes Heloiw By HELOISE CRUSE Hi Folks: While it's on my mind, I'd like to pass on a few ideas about fireplaces: In a wood-burning fireplace most people start the fire with newspapers. In case you don't, it makes no difference. The fireplace will still end up with ashes and debris, and with most fireplaces, it eventually must be removed! These are the days we hate. We did, too, until we learned a little secret recently. Did you know that you could take a c a r d- board box and sit it on your hearth when it comes cleaning time. Then, get out t h a t old shovel . . . Take your sprinkler — this is the gadget you sprinkle clothes with — and gently sprinkle the ashes before pushing the shovel underneath the debris. Now, if you do not have a sprinkler (my husband could not find, it one night, bless his heart), you can take a pan of water, dip your fingers in it, and lightly sprinkle the charred residue just like our grandmothers sprinkled clothes before the fancy sprinkle gadgets even came into existence! Wet only the top of the pile of debris. This will settle the dust particles anl bits of charred paper before picking it up. Let me caution you about one thing: Don't get this too wet as you do not want a mess running out over your hearth. After you have done this once and dipped up one shovel full, you will know exactly how much water to apply to this mess. All you want to do is wet the top. And before I forget, it is really neater if you'd like to open up a newspaper and line the cardboard box with it. Leave the paper sticking up about eight or ten inches on the sides of the box itself. This way you can — after putting the debris into the box- fold the top of the newspaper over and thus eliminate any flying particles when you carry it through the house. I know fireplaces are messy, but aren't they just wonderful? Heloise Dear Heloise: Save children's odd socks! If your child wears P.J.'s with foot- ies attached and walks around the house before going to bed, just put some of these odd socks over the footies. Remove when the child goes to bed — nice clean footies! Stretch socks seem to work best for me. Mrs. M. A. Vlasah Dear Heloise: The best way I have found to preserve rubber gloves is to hang them up sepearately by the cuff clothes pins on a wire hanger, and keep it in my kitchen. My gloves last much longer. Mrs. Harry Bloom Dear Heloise: Here is a hint for keeping extension cords neatly stored. Take the cardboard roller of waxed paper or foil and place the folded cord, in the roller. I cover my rollers with ad icsive - backed paper which can be bought at any dime store in many colors and patterns. No more tangled cords. Dear Heloise: When I wash my blankets I put one cup of sudsy ammonia into my washing machine — no soap — fill the machine up with warm water (not hot), turn off the washer and put in the blan ket. I let this soak about twenty minutes. I then turn on the washer and let it go the rest of the cycle so it will rinse. The blanket comes out clean and soft with no soap film to leave a harsh finish. M.B. Dear Heloise: A paper bag taped to the sewing machine makes it easier to keep threads and bits of material from going on the floor. Much easier than trying to "hit" the wastebasket. Reatha Jackson Dear Heloise: I have found a simple way to empty my vacuum cleaner which does not utilize disposable bags. Instead of emptying the con tents onto a newspaper I place a sack over the open end, turn the vacuum bag over and shake Select Dairy (Home Owned) CH 2-1607 1020 N.

Cedar. the bag while it is inside of the paper sack! Then all one has to do is roll down the top of the sack and throw it away. No mess, no dust in the air, and no dirty hands. (Gals, I tried this, it really works, too, but we've found that it was better to dampen the inside of the bag slightly. This can be done by gently sprinkling it before you put the dirt in. Heloise) One day I was out of paper towels when I was frying bacon. So, as a desperate measure, I drained my bacon on stale pieces of bread and I found it makes no mess whatsoever. The grease does not strike through as the bread is very absorbent. Dorothy Dear Heloise: My family loves fried fish but they don't like the fish odor that seems to last for days. Now I soak the fish in lemon juice for about 20 to 25 minutes, roll in meal, fry in deep fat — no odor. Joan Dear Heloise: We use cornstarch to clean fuzzy stuffed animals. We just rub the cornstarch in on the fuzzy part and let it stand a few minutes and then brush out the cornstarch and the toys are clean once more. We use the cornstarch as it comes out of the box . . . dry. Mrs. S.L.M.
