MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 25 H 1937 ELEVEN SOIGNE ENTERTAINING SUGGESTED BY JEANETTE BEYER WRITER OF TABLE TALKS TO RUN COOKING SCHOOL Jeanette Beyer Coming to Mason City for Annual Classes in Cookery April 6-9, Now that the end of Lent is within hailing distance, the homemaker thinks oE post-Easter entertaining. Jeanette Beyer who will be in Mason City in person from April 6 to 9 to conduct the Globe- Gazette cooking school suggests in her Table Talk this week that we become "soigne" in our entertainment and offers a few menus to assist us in the task. v J U N t T T T , WIFE PRESERVERS Do you ever make home-made cream puffs? Try filling the shell with ice crenm instead of with custard or whipped cream. "Soigne" Is the Word. Company is so wonderfully good for the soul, we ought to indulge in our friends oftener. When you know that guests are coming, haven't you found that all the hard tasks change to easy ones in anticipation of the pleasant time that is just ahead? A successful party might take place in n dusty living room, or a wonderful dinner be served on a dirty table cloth, but it's hard to imagine. There was time when being in a "frousel" was socially acceptable on the grounds of art or temperament. Now, due perhaps to Mrs. Simpson, but probably to our own improved tastesj we wish to be "soigne." I used to think this interesting word meant "silky" or "smooth," but my French dictionary defines it as "well-finished, trim or neat," which is really just as good. As smooth,- as elegant, as trim Presenting the Foremost Fashions, Quality, Variety and Value -- Tomorrow! 2 or 3-Piece . . ·'. Tailored or Fur-Trimmed! Ideal for Easter wear--stunning- sAvagger suits . . . many with gorgeous fur trimmings--cute jigger models in bright colors --marvelous man-tailored types in smart Spring patterns--suits that are superlative in styling, quality and tailoring! as a swan is an ideal which is hard to achieve, particularly when it can't stop with oneself. For one's children, one's house, even one's dinners should be soigne. You and I have friends who seem to have reached this goal, and how cleverly, how smoothly they manage the home institution. It you're lucky enough to be invited for supper or dinner, take notes: The Well-Finished Dinner. I don't know whether I can describe a soigne dinner, but it is Quickly recognized, once you gev the idea. No one seems in any fluster, or any hurry, yet food is served promptly. The hostess may excuse herself from the company, but she isn't gone long, and she is quite able to handle her share o£ the conversation. If the hostess is also waitress she chooses a type of service where the guests can do part of She serving themselves, and unnecessary courses or side dishes are left off the menu. Of course the food is delicious and attractive, but the most important thing about it is that it fits together like a perfect picture, without a single jarring note. As a guest, yoxi say to yourself, "Now 1 must remember this wonderful combination." Do you love menus? Here is a peep into my menu book of meals t h a t have worked beautifully. Some are simple and some more difficult, but all soigne. Anna's Dinner. Roast Chicken with Dressing Baked Sweet Potatoes in Jackets Chicken Gravy .

"The policy which appears most rational in practice is to provide extra work for the bright, in line with their intellectual interests. This is called enrichment of school work. At the same time it has been found a good plan to combine this enrichment with a moderate degree o£ rapid progress through school. The longer bright children are studied, the more clearly does it appear t h a t they have far too little to do at school." --o-Plan Parly Monday.

Pickles, Celery and Carrots DK. GARRY C. MYERS, Ph. D. · Child Psychologist. Many questions come to me about bright children. Although I should know a great deal about the subject, I do not know nearly so much about bright children as does Dr. Leta Hollingsworth, of Columbia university. Indeed, nobody else in the world has studied so many bright children, so long and so thoroughly as she has. She has been kind enough to : answer some of these questions for me. I regret that her answers cannot be made in full. You can find much more by her on the subject from her articles and books, especially her book, "Gifted Children." Q. How early can brightness be noticed? A. "By the time babies are 12 to 18 months old the brightest among them can be found by one who knows just how to go about it, it such n person can have three or four hours to devote to the observation of each child. One of the most significant signs ot brightness in a baby is early use of words,, both in u n d e r s t a n d i n g and speaking . . . Bright children even walk a little earlier, as a rule." Arc. They Nervous? Q. Are the bright nervous? A. "By all tests so far applied, bright children prove to be less nervous, as a group, than children generally are." Q. Are the bright children inclined to be puny? A. "Investigations have repeatedly shown that very bright children are very likely to be tall arid heavy . . . Comparisons of health have proved that a hundred bright children will have a better average of health than a hundred children taken at random, though I there will be some sickly individuals in both groups." Q.- Are the very bright children born in poverty?" A. "Very bright children arc usually born to parents in better than average circumstances." Continues Bright. Q. Do the bright "go backward" as they grow older? A. "Tlie bright child continues to be bright. The bright infant becomes the bright adult, and. does not become a dullard (though he may fail to achieve much either o d u e s a\j s "IF THEY ROLL, THEY'RE RIGHTT * 11 and $21 Muffin brims matador tilt . . with s p i r i t , bravado, that'll at a . hats with add a flattering accent your ensemble. to Sizes 21Vi to 2i Inches Bright Models in New Spring Lengths!

O£ course most puddings are batters before they're boiled or steamed. But this one swells up a lot, and I think there's some nutmeg about it, and is it eaten with cream and sugar? Anyway, it is old-fashioned and something very good, and the recipe greatly desired. Who can help? · -- o -Have Skatinf Tarty.
