TJiUilSDAY, NoViJMBEil '4, 103? I Pllli IS sit m f _ PIT! Has No Age Limit In •Its lEnleitainmcnl Appeal •BV BETTV CUOCKlill With November already IMC way ?ruuud- the corner, it's 'high time we -began considering November birthdays. Ami. .because November slid Thanksgiving: are always soj closely associated with (lie Pilgrims and tilings icavly.'Amcrlcan, we like to-give our entertaining an old- fasiiioued atmosphere of simplicity and warm sincere hospitality. So I'm ctioosing an Old Time Candy Pull for tills November' birthday • paHy. That makes it the kind of party that lias no nge limit to its appeal. Or course the candy pull is the main entertainment feature. If it's a small group they, may enjoy making the candy or at least silting riround in tli L . kitchen while it's being made. Then they can return to tile living room for old-fashioned Barnes while the candy is cooling. The candy pulling will be much niore fun for tiie—and (lie older groups—if they are di- •vidcd into couples. Here is one way of matching partners that is in keeping with the old time party. Give'the men the 1 names of. different fowls or cuts of meat^-and the women names of different sauces .or dressings inevitably associated with those meats—such as Roast .Turkey — Cranberry Sauce, Roast Goose—Baked Apples, wild Duck and Grape Jelly, Beef Steak nncl Onions, Leg of .Lamb and 'Mint Sauce, Hani and .Horseradish Sauce, etc. The hostess should read the list of affinities to M. sure that each man has founcMiis-right sauce, When this is settled, usher them into the kitchen-where each couple is given a piece.-of candy:to pull— and don't forget to provide a bit of butter to .put on their fingers. And let each couple have tlieir own v candy to cut into pieces and wrap in .waxed paper and do with as they please. Be sure to provide the waxed paper and scissors beforehand. Here are two old time games to fill in will) while the candy is cooling or after the pulling. i My Grandmother's Pantry: Seat the group in a circle. Have someone start the game by saying: "In my grandmother's pantry is currant jam." The next person says, "In my-' grandmother's pantry are currant jam and cucumber • pickle" and so on. each person adding one morc-aiticlc- to those already •men-, lioned. When any one fails to repeat the list correctly, lie drops out of the game, which may be continued until only one remains, or the list becomes too long. Train of Thought: one plnyer chooses a word, He says the word to the person on his right who, in turn, will say the first word broughlsto his mind by the first player's word, and so on around to the last person. "For instance, the first player says "car," the second "speeding." the third "policeman," Ihc fourth rticke*,-/' flien '•'•Jiii),". "mice," "cheese," etc. There 'arc no limits to the possibilities of this game. An old-time -spell-down— ir if there is someone who can play the accompaniments for such old lime songs as "Aunt Dinah's Quilting Early"—"Working- On -the Hail- road," etc.,—a singing school of fun. Of course, there will be considerable tasting of.the candy during the pulling—so loo-hearty or too sweet refreshments would not be welcome. So I'm suggesting a Cinnamon Cake with Orange Icing for the Birthday Cake. Certainly it will Have candles! Big red polished apples and coffee or cccoa will complete the lunch. Here arc the recipes for the cinnamon Cake with Orange Icing and Butter Taffy: 1-2 cup shortening 1 1-4 cups sugar 2 eggs l-.B cup milk. 2 cups all-purpose flour or 2 1-4 cups cake fiour 1-2 Isp. salt 2 tsp. cinnamon 1-4 tsp. cloves 1-4 tsp. nutmeg 3 Isp. baking powder Cream shortening, add sugar gradually and cream together thoroughly.
