HOLIDA Y COOKER Y CALLS FOR IDEAS Jeanette Beyer Comes to Aid of Christmas Burdened Housewife With Interesting Culinary Suggestions. Who is Mrs. Santa Glaus and what does she do with her time? Jeanette Buyer thinks she Is a very busy woman--perhaps every woman before Christmas, and the Table Talk this week ts filled with culinary suggestions which may lighten Mrs. Santa Glaus' problems, Jeanette Beyer, Globe-Gazette food expert, will be glad to hear your ideas for a kitcheu- ivard Christmas. WOMAN LEADS REPEAL MEET {Questions concerning culinary problems addressed In care of the tiaper will be answered In this column.) Helping Mrs. Santa Glaus. "Bring us out a table and spread it with a cloth Bring us out mouldy cheese and some of your Christmas loaf For it's Christmas time, when we travel far and near; May God bless you and send you a happy New Year." No one, as far as I know, has ever drawn ua a picture of Mrs. Santa Claus. There old Mr. Santa is, chuckling from every magazine cover, winking from every page of the newspaper, patting our children's hands and crying "Merry Christmas" in every shop and toy- laad. Not, of course, that I am not t'ond of the old .-rentleman and vtould have it any otter way, for I'm glad to see him oftener than often. Yet I do think his wife should come in for part of the applause. During these weeks before Christmas that Santa has to be away from the North Pole to spread Christmas cheer over us, who would take care of all those exciting and important last minute preparations if it wasn't for Mrs. Santa Claus? How would the popcorn balls get popped and rolled, the taffy apples taffied? If all the toes of the Christmas stockings are to have oranges and nuts in them, someone will have lots of work to do and who else could It probably be than Santa's wife? Though no one seems to know what she looks like, her spirit must be as fat and jolly with as cherry a nose as that of her 'Hustrious husband.
