Twelve young Filipinos In the United States for study and work held a traditional pig.roasting cookout Sunday at the Edward Woodsum home near Centrop. oils. The event followed their International celebration Saturday night at the University of Kansas. The four young women In the group are nurses in Research Hospital and K. U.

Present for the occasion was Jim Milliken, Williamsburg, who ALMOST READY Frequent basting of the outside of the roasting pig with lard helps to make a crunchy brown crust. Rubber Pads Lift Chair Dear Heloise: Our little boy reached the stage where he was old enough to eat at the table with us...but his highchair was too high, and a regular chair wasnH high enough. We bought four old-fashioned door bumpers (used to keep doors from banging against the walls), the sort with a hard rubber pad on the end, and screwed one of these in the bottom of each leg of a dining room chair. The bumpers raised the chair about three inches which is the perfect height for him. When he no longer needs this "high chair," we can remove the bumpers from the legs of it, and no harm will have been done to the chair. Sandra Dear Heloise: When we are going to have a party, I rub a little cologne on and mail them. When the little sample packages arrive, I open them carefully, remove the contents and re.seal the packages...and give them to the children to play store with. Besides having such fun with them, they are learning brand names so they can go to the corner grocery store for me and have no trouble locating the brand I have asked for. Helen K. Dear Heloise: When your rubber or nylon garden hose develops several leaks, dont throw it out...just make some more holes in it and you have a sprinkling hose for watering the lawn. Joe Dear Heloise: Having children who are in too much of a hurry (or too lazy!) to rub soap on their hands to get all the dirt off, 1 bought several small plastic bottles of mild liquid detergent and placed them in the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room. One squirt, in* stant suds and clean hands. I buy one large bottle to refill the small ones. The labels on the plastic bottles can be removed and replaced with decals. Rose Jusick Dear Heloise: Whenever I bake stuffed pep. ers, I place them in my muffin pan. The peppers will keep their shape much better and not fall over as they sometimes do in a regular baking pan. Hazel M. Dear Heloise: I'm a teenager and an avid tennis player. However, you couldn't count the number often, nis balls I lost between sets! ft was getting expensive, so I found another use for the plas. tic netting bags that some onions and potatoes are sold in. I tied a knot in one end of this netting (both ends are open) and turned it inside out. I put my tennis balls in it and tied a knot in the other end. D.G. spent five months In the Philip* pines as an International Youth Exchange student. He recalled attending similar cookouts during his stay In the Islands, where they are held following weddings or for fiestas. Jim arranged for buying of the pig, brought it to the Woodsum home, killed and dressed it. A dowel was substituted for the usual bamboo pole to hold the pig above the bed of coals, and briquets for the regular cocoanut charcoal. The pig was stuffed with several apples. Poured in. side was a sauce made of vine* gar, soy sauce, minced garlic, bay leaves, pepper and salt. Two empty bottles were also placed inside to help maintain heat. The young people said that a 40-to 50-lb. pig will serve about 50 people. Often, particularly in the cities, people buy the roasted pig and have it brought to the home. In the country, people usu. ally roast the pig out-of-doors. The gravy or sauce to serve with the roast pork Is seasoned with the pork liver. A dilute solution of vinegar and water is poured over the liver after it is sliced thin and broiled. The liquid is then strained and thick, ened with crackers, rolled fine, and seasoned with a big of sugar, and onions and garlic minced very fine, all cooked until thick. Traditionally, the roast pork would be accompanied by sweet potatoes, some kind of fruit, per. haps bananas or pineapple and perhaps cocoanut candy. For the Sunday meal, the girls prepared a chicken dish, Arroz con Caldo (Rice With Soup), made by mincing cooked chicken, sea. soning it with minced garlic, salt, pepper and a dash of gin. ger, then adding rice. They also served a Chop Suey which showed the Chinese influ. ence in their country. It con. tained several kinds of vege. tables and was thickened with a sauce containing soy sauce. The girls told of a native dish, Stuffed Chicken, which has been very popular here. The preparation requires some skill for it involves removing the bones and meat from a large baked chicken, leaving the skin in. tact except for a slit along the breast. The ends of the drum, sticks are also left on to give the stuffed chicken a natural appearance. After the meat is removed from the bones, it is mixed with 1 Ib. ground beef, 2 links or rolls of pepperoni (sausage), a package of frozen green peas, half a box of raisins and 2 or 3 beaten eggs. Part of the mixture is placed in. side the chicken and from 4 to 6 hard cooked eggs arranged around it. The remainder of the meat mixture is then added and the opening sewed with strong cord. The drumsticks are tied together to preserve the proper shape of the chicken. The chicken is covered with foil and baked 2 or 3 hours at 250 degrees. It is cut in slices and served hot. our light bulbs before turning on the lights. The heat from the bulb makes the cologne give off a wonder, ful scent which will last for hours. "Petunia" Dear Heloise: For those of you who have a bulge after you put on your girdle... This bulge can be eliminated U one pulls the girdle to the knees, lies down on the bed and pulls it the rest of the way on. This is simple to do and lets the stomach stay in place instead of pushing it up. Pat Snow Dear Helllse: After reading the advertise, ments, I cut out the coupons that offer samples, fill them in ATTENTION S.WLLflV £0.1 3 Rooms Fashion Furniture only $ 389 No Money Down-$5 Weekly FIESTA COOKOUT - Mrs. Edward Woodsum, at back, in white blouse and jeans, came up with some aluminum foil when the pig being roasted by a group of Filipino guests, began cooking too fast on the outside.
