«i^»MH3w.'W»v^ Hints From Heloise Cakes Baked T /"i' xf -'in ' STV 9 In Loifee Lan ran By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: ; For 40 yews I lined my cake pans with double thicknesses of brown paper. Recently I have used aluminum foil for lining and find it better. The paper-lined cakes usually had a burnt crust but I have yet to find one burned that was lined with foil. As most of my children are married I find that regular cake pans are too large so I save one-pound coffee. cans and bake my cakes in*r/v these, After, Diking and cooking I wash and i reline the tins) with fresh foil and p u t the'lids on andj they keep beautiful 1 y until ready to use 1 f o r baking •gain. A. Ceccawese Ladies! I just took six one- pound coffee cans and a box of ready prepared cake mix (add- big one-fourth cup of salad oil) and baked the cutest cakes you've ever seen. And here's another idea I came across after being too tired to ice them today. . . I removed the cakes from four of the coffee cans and stacked them — one on top of the other — with a piece of foil between Helois. each — and taped the lid back on the coffee can! I then put them in my deep freeze. This not only ?avs foil but keeps the frost off my homemade cake, takes up less room in my deep freeze, and I can spot exactly what it is because I labeled on the top "chocolate cake" with a felt marker. When icing these cakes if you are one who has a very sweet tooth you can take a knife and cut each layer cross-wise again. Thus removing one, two, or even three layers of cake and ice be- between each layer. Here's something else I found put: never remove just two layers of tius cake when icing one cake, Why not ice two at the same time and put it back in the deep freeze? Then the next time you want cake all you have to do is remove the cake, let it thaw and eat. Most icing recipes call for enough batter to ice an entire cake. Therefore half recipes — so I find — are hard to make. Love, Heloise Dear Heloise: Like many parents with smal children we have two television sets. One for the children's room and one for the living room. The old TV set works fine bu with its brown plastic case i made • drab ornament. We hi on the idea of covering It with adhesive paper, The nice part about it is; when you tire of the design it can easily be peeled off and a new design applied, One design I saw on this type >aper recently, had little chit Iron's characters on a white mckground. This would be adorable for a sma.ll child's room. Mrs. Gerald Corcoran Dear Heloise: I clean my kid gloves with an art eraser. It will work on any color or any combination of coir ors without harm- Mrs. 0. Kelly Dear Heloise: When I wash baby hats ami bonnets made of nylon, from in fant size on up, I put them on appropriate size canisters to dry They are easy to shape and dry quickly. Gloria Goldsmith Dear Heloise: When sewing on a button always put a straight pin across the top of it then sew the button on. Remove the pin before winding the thread between the material and the back of the button. This amount of ease in the thread will keep the material from puckering and pulling' For coat buttons and heavier items, I use a skewer or a matchstick.

THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, April 6, INI ' Ann Landers Maybe Her Co Attracts Milkmaid Dear Ann Landers: I have been elected by our neighborhood coffee-breakers to write you this letter. A woman who lives on our street is really a lovely person. She is in her early 30's, attractive and the mother of four children. Every day around lunch time the milkman stops at her house and stays anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. His truck is parked right in her d r i v e- way all this time. Those of us who know her are sure this woman has high moral standards and is a faithful wife, but we are afraid the less-trusting neighbors may get the wrong impression. Shall we talk to her and risk losing her friendship? Or shall we keep our snoots out of it and let her ruin her reputation and hurt her family?—THE LOYAL- ETTES Dear Loyalettcs: Keep your snoots out of it. It may be that the milkman is a family friend and it may be that this woman makes the best coffee in the neighborhood. Dear Ann Landers: As one of your publishers I must disagree with one of your editors. I refer ,1 to the letter signed C.W,, objected to boys helping thejr mothers in the kitchen, fn« ei> tor said kitchn work is for females. As you so aptly put it, Ann, work knows no gender today. We have four boys in our family and it is clearly understood that they have to help with the "female" work because they cause so much of it. Our boys have never objected to helping. They just grew up knowing it was expected of them. They are not mama's boys, nor do they show any signs that they will turn out to be "yes men" to women. Instead they are all- around kids who will be able to pitch in and help in any emergency. You may print this as evidence that the members of the fourth estate are divided on this vital point in boy-raising—R. G. K. FIT FOR A QUEEN — Mrs. James McCrea, hostess, and Mrs. Leland Gillilapd prepare to serve Crown Jewel Dessert to their sorority group and guests.

Socialettes Ottawa Branch, American Association of University women will meet at the Manul Art Center, Q,y., at 7; 30 p.m. Monday for a short business session before going to the Easter play. A fitting conclusion to the recent Beta Sigm.3 Phi progressive dinner was the Crown Jewel Dessert served at the home of Mrs. James McCrea. It was made by Mrs. Leland Gillilant} A good feature of this dessert is that it is prepared ahead of time. Crown Jewel Dessert On the day before serving the dessert prepare 3 pkg of any flavor gelatin. Mrs. Cilliland used different ones which were colorful. Dissolve each package of gelatin, separately, in 1 c. hot water. Pour in separate pans to the depth of one-half inch and refrigerate. At least 6 hours before using: Dissolve 1 pkg lemon jello in 1 c. hot pineapple juice, add V% o. sugar, mix together and chill until syrupy. Line a spring-form pan with vanilla wafers known as lady finger cookies, standing them upright around the edge. Whip 2 c. cream until it mounds firmly. Add to the lemon jello mixture. Set aside while preparing jello cubes, Cut the firm jello into small squares with a knife dipped in hot water. Blend gently with whipped cream mixture. Put into pan and refrigerate. Mrs. Gilliland has several other recipes in the dessert line which she calls "quickies," always a consideration since she tegches in Hawthorne School. Of the first one she says, "This is Bud's favorite. (Bud is her husband.) It is a rich, dark, moist chocolate cake and a time-saver since it uses cocoa instead ol melted chocolate." Mrs Gilliland says this is the one her husband means when he gives an invita* tion to some one to "come on over and we'll have a soggy chocolate cake." Rich Cocoa Cake Sift together in bowl: 1% c. flour 1-3 c. cocoa 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. sodq 1 1-3 c. sugar Add: l /2 c, shortening 1 c. sour cream 1 tsp. vanilla 3 eggs (unbeaten) Sift dry ingredients into mixer bowl. Add liquid ingredients and shortening and mix two minutes. Add unbeaten eggs, scraping side of bowl. Beat about two minutes while preparing 13 x 9 cake pan. Grease pan and dust with flour. Bake cake at 350 degrees about 30 minutes. Since cake calls for some kind of icjng you mpy want to try Mrs. Gilliland's favorite, She says it takes no cooking, yet hasn't a "powdered sygar" taste. It is a pliable frosting but Stands up well enough for swirling or as a Magic Cream Frosting 3 c. sifted confectioners sugar 3 tbsp. milk % tsp. salt Vi c. Crisco % tsp. white vanilla Blend together in mixer bowl half the sugar, the vanilla, salt and Crisco. Beat thoroughly, adding part of the milk if necessary. Alternate remaining milk and confectioners sugar, gradually increasing mixer speed, mix until desired consistency is reached, adding more milk if necessary. Leland and Robyn are the cookie eaters at our house, as only a 6-year-old and 12-year-old can be," says their mother. "Their The Baby Has Been Named The daughter born today to Lt. and Mrs. G.

Another favorite in the Gilliand household is an "oldie", Miscellanv L. M. S. A problem in one part of the country is very liable to be 1 common to other parti- of the country, also. While in Los Angeles recently, called by the death of a relative, Nell Barnaby found an article in the Los Angeles Times which pointed a problem which exists in Ottawa as well as there. The first paragraph: "A critical shortage of library books in Los Angeles schools is taxing p u b 1 i c libraries which are neither designed nor staff ed to school ed ices, emon pie, wist. but with a different provide centers e r v- school li- Lois Lemon Surprise Pie Mix in saucepan: 1% c. sugar 1-8 c. cornstarch Slowly stir in: 1% c. water Stir constantly over moderate leat until mixture thickens, then ml for 1 minute after boiling point is reached.

A paragraph farther on in the story stated that the board of education would meet with city library officials to discuss their mutual problem — Jack of funds for books and overcrowding of public libraries by students. Miss Barnaby reports that it is the policy of the local library to co-operate as much as possible in supplying books needed by pupils for Assignments. She admits that it poses a problem, however, when several large classes ask for the same material at the same time. Not only are the li- barians unable to meet all the requests, but they spend a disproportionate amount of time attempting to fill the requests. It is a policy of tho board to buy books to please varied tastes rather than to select books large- y for one segment qt the local population. The problem is one which public libraries are experiencing all over the country and which schoo] boards are attempting to help correct by incrtasing school Ji^ braries. Dear R.G.K.: I'm not sure I enjoy being caught in the crossfire between an editor and a publisher yet, but I appreciate your support of my point of view. Thank you for writing. Your Problem Girl, Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: My fiance and I are going to be married in June. It will be a formal wedding and my parents are going to a great deal of expense to make it elegant and perfect in every detail. My fiance is giving me a Ijt- tie trouble on the guest list. While he was in college he worked summers on a truck. He became friendly with^three roughneck truck drivers who are not his social equals. (This is an under* statement.) My fiance insists that we invite, these three characters to our wedding. I can't seem to talk him out of it. It's not that I am ashamed of them, Ann, it's just that I'm afraid they would be uncomfortable. They surely do not own formal evening clothes and I'd hate to put them to the expense of buying anything. Since the bride's parents pay or the wedding I feel he should ot make too many demands. 'lease settle this.—FLY IN THE SOUP Dear Fly: Even though the ride's parents pay for the wed- ing the bride and groom have 0 live together after the guests o home and it helps if they are n speaking terams. Invite the truck drivers and on't worry about the expense of ie evening clothes. They'll robably rent — like many of pur fancier guests. P.S., They'll robably behave better, too. Confidential to Forgive and Forget: No. Forgive and remember. Are you tempted to smoke be- ause the crowd does? If so, end for Ann Landers' booklet, 'Teenage Smokftfe,-" enclosing with your request 10 cents in coin and a long, s£tf-addressed, lamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to iclp you with your problems. Send them to her in care of his newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
