Today's Kecipes Creamed Eggs on Toast--Hard boil the necessary number of egg and let cool. Take off shells and cu in pieces. Make a cream sauce and put the diced eggs in and heat. Poui over toast. To make it prettier, sep crate the yolks from the whites o. the hard boiled eggs, and cream ttii whites only. Poor over toast ani sprinkle with the crumbled yolks. Use Hot Water. Melt butter over hot water. But ter burns easily and changes in col or and flavor over direct heat. A large cup or small saucepan which fits into the top of the tea kettle is handy for this purpose. Maple Syrup Frosting One cup granulated sugar, one cup maple syrup, one-eighth teaspoon cream of tartar, two egg whites. Stir the sugar, syrup and cream of tartar over a moderate fire till melted, cover (to prevent the formation of crystals on the edge of the pan) and boil for five minutes. Test at this point for the hard ball stage, which takes from five to eight minutes. Or cook to 242 de- Tees. In testing:, always remove the pan from direct heat. Pour slowly over the egg whites, stiffly beaten, and beat till cold and thick, a matter of five minutes. Parents Should Not Interrupt Their Children By GARRY C. MYERS, I'M. D. Child Training Expert It was Saturday, nearly lunch time. My 13 year old boy had slept all morning ami had just come down the stairs. Laughingly he was telling how he had planned to do everything backwards. "I had my slippers at the head of the stairs ready to come down in them backwards. Just as I was ready to get into them Rags (the Scotty) grabbed--" "You look terrible!" his mother broke in. Well, he did--shirt tail ut, hair tousscled, face unwashed. But the lad was vexed: and so 'as 1.1 even half rebuked the moth- r after the boy returned upstairs. _ater he came to lunch, where he merely grunted when spoken t o. Vhen asked why he acted so he ran'kly referred to the interruption nd then classed it as a habit, re- ailing several like offenses in most f which I was the sole transgres- or. Apologized to Him. His mother apologized to him; so did I. Also I volunteered that he might feel free to fine and collect i nickel from me for each future jimilar offense of mine. And my wife almost beat me to it with the same proposition. Less than five minutes had passed before he collected his first nickel --and it was from me; not from his mother; she has more self-control. The boy immediately brightened up and became almost hilarious for aours afterwards. He will probably collect more nickels from me unless he should relax his vigilance. , I very much dislike to make this ) confession, but I do so hoping other parents may try the nickel stunt. Try Self Discipline. Now you know very well that this boy's parents are now trying to exercise more self-discipline in respect to interrupting their children. A3 for the latter, they have profited and improved in courtesy. I remember having lost several other nickels in my family. For example, my daughter, when about 10, had acquired serious dawdling habits on school mornings. At last I volunteered never to say "hurry" agam to her, and proposed the fine for me. She collected very soon. But I should add that she also faced a penalty for leaving home for school a single minute late.

Emergency Table "In order to serve about 16 people in a small apartment, 1 have found it practical to use card tables in the living room. Attach four card tables to each other in a straight line, joining them by screen door hooks about two inches long at each side of the tables. This makes a sturdy table whicli won't shake or collapse." This useful hint is given by a clever housewife who entertains frequently.

Make it a rule to turn off the current when you leave it, no matter how briefly. 20 Ton Disc for 200 Inch Telescope Safe at Its Destination PASADENA. C"I. ».T)--The 20 ton disc for the Ml.
