Fhom: soo CLEANERS i Emergency Meal Tests Ingenuity of Clever Cook By ANN KINGSLEY However much we may plan ahead, and smoothly as our household schedule runs ordinarily, there will 'arise those puzzling situations, such as the arrival of unexpected guests when we have only the remnants of last night's roast, or times when we have to prepare a quick meal for the family. Perhaps it is good for us to be put on our mettle now and then, to find out just what we can accomplish with little on hand, or a short time to work. It quickens our wits and makes us feel cocky when we manage to perform a little kitchen magic. It is good to have a few of these quick and fancy recipes on hand. It might not be a bad idea to try them out before the emergency arises, after the principle of the fire-drill. A meat pi«J is one answer to the problem of making a small amount of left-over meat serve more portions than you thought it would If you have the vegetables ready cooked, or choose ones which are cooked in a hurry, this is also one of those quick dishes for the hurry- up meal. Meat Pie. 1 cup diced cooked meat 4 tablespoons lard 3 tablespoons chopped onion '.3 cup diced cooked carrots 2 tablespoons chopped green pepper ',i cup diced celery 4 tablespoons flour 2 cups milk or meat stock Slowly brown the onion, pepper, celery and meat in hot lard. Add flour gradually, stirring constantly, until brown. Add remaining ingredients. Heat thoroughly. Pour into .shallow, well-oiled baking dish. Cover with biscuits or 'a border of mashed potatoes. Bake in a hot oven (450 degrees F.) until biscuits are done or mashed potatoes are browned. A tasty dish, fit for a most special guest, may be made of leftover lamb. Souffle of Lamb. ! 3 /i cups cold lamb, minced 2 egg yolks 2 egg whites 1-il cups milk 1 tablespoon flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon butter Pepper Beat the egg yolks, add milk, :hickened with flour, smooth into the butter, and season with salt and r. Cook until slightly thick- :ned. Cool. Add meat and stiffly beaten egg whites. Pour into a casserole, pla.ce. casserole in. a. shallow containing 1 inch of hot water. 3ake for 30 minutes or until the ouffle is firm in center. Another left-over dish which may be given a party flavor is Veal a la ing. Veal a la King. Cut left-over cold roast -veal into mall dice. Make a medium sauce by ombining flour with melted butter, radually adding milk or veal stock and cookiug slowly until thickened, ieason with salt and pepper, finely diced green pepper and pimiento and laprika. Mushrooms which have oeen fried in butter, diced celery, cooked peas or other left-over vegetables may be added, if desired. Cook slowly until the meat and vegetables are heated through. Serve in toasted bread baskets, patty shells or on toast points. Decorate with parsley and strips of pimiento and green pepper. Top with a cube of currant jelly. But suppose there isn't any leftover meat to help you out when a 1:3 sty or unexpected meal must be prepared. To be ready for any situation, the canny housewife keeps certain supplies on hand, in refrigerator or on the "emergency shelf" of the pantry. The ready prepared meats, dried beef, various kinds of sausages, etc., are a veritable "first- tiid" kit in a kitchen emergency. Probably there is nothing .which helps out more, however, than to have a supply of bacon ready at hand. That versatile stand-by can be- used as the main dish for any meal of the day and can be used to give flavor and distinction to other foods you may have. And it is always so easily and quickly prepared. Here is a quick dish in which bacon plays its part. Grilled Plate With Scrambled Eggs. 3 tomatoes, peeled 4 eggs, scrambled 6 slices toast, buttered, cut in TWO PIECE COSTUME GLOBE-GAZETTE PEERLESS 19 CENT PATTERN 160 Fifth Avenue, New York City By DIANA DAY Attractive Costume May Be Either Separate Blouse and Skirt or Two Piece Frock; Easy to Make.

Y., (.-PI--Milady was advised Tuesday to take up her broom, mop and dustpan militantly as major beauty aids. "The broom is o. homely tiling, but it hides many a beauty secret," declared Miss Dorothy H. Bateman, women's physical instructor at Cornell university. "If properly wielded, it will sweep into the dustpan everything but the good looks of its mistress." It is just an old wives' tale, said Miss Bateman. that these implements of the cottage and flat leave the "hausfrau" looking at a third strike in her contest for allure with her office-working sister. Easier 1o Keep Fit. "There is no excuse for such an cica," asserted Miss Bateman. "If she works properly the housewife s ahead of the office worker anytime. It's easier for her to keep fit. "Take heavy lifting for instance. The wrong way gives you the backache. The right way shoos off the middle age spread.' It replaces'the spare tire' with strong) slender lips." How to Do It. "How should it be done? Well, irst, when you stoop keep one foot ahead of the other. Then, when you 'ise, keep the back straight and use ,he thigh and hip muscles. Don't collapse at the waist-line and make .he back muscles do all the work. Tor stair-climbing use the hip muscles, too, and keep the hips themselves well under the torso. "In sweeping let the trunk twist rom the hips. Tasks which require overhead reaching', like dusting and hanging curtains, are fine stretching exercises if not done too suddenly. All such chores if properly done, give the hausfrau good posture, better health, improved appearance, more poise and a happier disposition."

Some years ago, there was considerable difference of opinion regarding the use of bran. So to discover the actual facts of the case, the Kellogg Company asked for a series of laboratory tests at leading universities. Experimental studies on a group of healthy women showed that the continued use of bran was thoroughly satisfactory. Unlike cathartics, it did not lose its effect. Other independent tests on men indicated that, with certain people, the "bulk" in bran was more effective than that found in fruits and vegetables. Laboratory analysis proved that Kellogg's ALL-BRAN supplied vitamin B and iron as well as plenty of hulk. This "bulk" in ALL-BRAN is gentle in action. It absorbs a great deal of moisture, and cleanses the intestinal tract. ALL-BRAN corrects constipation due to insufficient "bulk." It is the natural way--far better than using pills and tablets. Serve as a cereal -or use in cooking. Sold by all grocers. Made by Kellogg in Battle Creek.
