DECEMBER 28 1933 MASON CITY GLOBE GAZETTE SEVEN THOUSANDS OF COOKIE RECIPES IN WEEK'S TABLE TALK Birds Will Benefit by Yule Trees Supervisor of Game for Iowa Asks Christmas Trees be Saved. "Don't throw away or burn your Christmas trees," is the plea of William Schuenke, supervisor of game for Iowa. "When their usefulness for instilling holiday spirit is done, place them upright in the yard and tie food to their branches, bits of suet, or place bread crumbs beneath so that the snow will not cover it," states Schuenke. "Or better still, organize a group to gather up as many trees as possible and take them to quail or pheasant territory and construct shelters where the birds may have protection from the winter winds and snow. Have the city authorities of your city issue an order that all Christmas trees are to be saved for this purpose. Solicit the aid of the Boy Scouts and sportsmen's groups and keep the shelter supplied with food throughout the winter season." "We think of ourselves at the hoi. iday season," explains Schuenke, "and much money is spent for food but we should give some thought to our feathered friends. For the good they do and for the joy they bring into bur lives we should give them every consideration during the winter when food for the birds is scarce and covered with snow." "Make your Christmas tree do double duty this year and make the birds happy as well as yourself." Sick Football Star Carried to Hospital From Burning Home SHENANDOAH, Dec. 28. (JP-George Claypool, local footbal! star who has been ill since Thanksgiving day, was carried from his burning home to a local hospital today. Firemen extinguished the blaze which caused only slight damage. Our guess is that the world will be rebuilt by men who can change typewriter ribbons without having a conference.--Kessinger's Review.

I should say not--and neither will you when you embark on more of these intriguing sweets. Commence on one, and you are tempted to try another and another. The rules are clear and easy, and the products so delicious, that bake as hard as you will, it will be hard to keep ahead of the family's sampling, so that there will be a. few left for gift boxes. And if you want to know how to entertain a feminine callei', lead her to your kitchen, dress her in a big clean apron, and start out ou cookies, each of you making a different recipe. The mixing and tast- ings are sweet to share, and when the labors are all done, put on the coffee pot. The refreshments are ready, and the call will have been an enormous success. I've chosen three cookies again as "best"--though that is not a true statement, when there are so many "best" among- all the recipes which follow. By the way, in judging the recipes, neat clear directions always count favorably, as well as accurate level measurements, and some indication as to cooking temperature. When the amount of flour is left for guessing, the recipe can never get first honors. A real spicy cookie, which is something like English ginger bread, quite hard, without .soda or eggs, is the following: Sptco Cootcie. Vi cup butter; 1 tsp. ginger; 2 tsp. allspice; 1 tsp. mixed anise and coriander seed; 1 cup warm molasses; 34 cups pastry flour; 2 tbsp. finely chipped candied cherries; 2 tbsp. finely chopped citron; 2 tbsp. finely chopped currants; grated rind of 1 lemon; % cup finely chopped nut meats. Mix together butter, ginger, allspice, anise and coriander seed, grated rind of lemon aud add warm molasses and stir until butter is melted. Add flour to make a soft dough (it may take a little more or less than amount given). Let stand 20 minutes. Work the cherries, citron, currants and nut meats into mixture, then toss onto a floured board and pat out to one inch thickness. Cut out with small cutter and bake in moderate oven 20 to 25 minutes. When cold ice with boiled frosting. Place on top of each cookie a piece of candied fruit or nut.-Lillian Finch. The second cookie is a softer one, rich and delicious. 1'ccsin Sticks.
