Neivbury Old Boys To Hold Reunion The Newbury Old Boys Reunion will take the form of a St. Patricks Party, and will be staged in the C. H. Smith Auditorium on the evening of March 14, it is announced today. All former re.JJents of Newbury are cordially invited to attend, and those wishing reservations are asked to call Mrs. F, M. Western, 4-372L Fresh Ho id to Make Children Like Vegetables If They Refuse to Eat Them, Let Them Go Hungry (tditor Not: The corn syrup recpies promised for this week will be all the better for the delav of another week or mavbe two for I am using nothing but corn syrup for sweetening, and the top notch cakes and desserts we are getting are a revelation of what can be done with this nutritious sweet. Recpies using corn syrup instead of sugar definitely are coming so watih for them). 1 NOTE from an anxious mother asks me to give her ways of serving vegetables that will make her children like them. Including my own two, the precious little tyrants should be sent to bed without their suppers! and next day served the same vegetables alone, first, before they receive any other food. This is tough treatment but children require it It works like a charm though, and Mothers. I am willing to wager you won't hear a word about vegetables for the rest of your child-feedings days. (Although if you have a die-hard like my little Marianne was. I dont know the answers, for when she was 13 months old one morning I found her with a cheekful of spinach having held it there all night!) When she started to like spinach. I don t know, but now she eats it by the pound so she can fight Peter. Children must eat a large variety of vegetables and the "faster their prejudices are removed the healthier they will be. What I could not endure from my two was the complaining attitude, in England every square inch of grass plot and window box is used for vegetable growing of one kind or another purely that they may survive and our pampered pets are quibbling about liking them. Your attitude should be "Like them and eat them willmgly or leave the table and have them cold for breakfast Don t I sound mean? Yes but if you borrow my technique over the years you will have done your children a great kindness. - Cream Soups With Vegetables First I have to mention again the one sure-fire method of providing vegetables for the children and that is in the good old soup pot which contains aU your vegetable water plus many celery trimmings and leftover daily vegetables If you cant manage enough additions to give it good flavor boil it with a 5-eent beef bone occasionally If you are canny you can include in cream soups almost as much spinach or peas or tomatoes, etc , as you would give the children in a serving of them alone. Children like soup and if they get their vegetables in it your worries are half over. The only drawback is that it fills them too soon and they haven't enough room for the other foods that are essential for balanced nutrition. When I serve cream soups I reserve the milk until the end of the meal If they still want it after tljeir dessert is eaten it is all to the good. ? Baked Potatoes 1 In school the children are being taught that they need chewy food like the skin of baked potatoes, raw-carrots and celery, peanuts, skm of apples, etc , and it is not so hard to persuade them to eat these things now. But for those who object to the skin of baked potato I have two good suggestions. For plain baked potato be sure to oil the skin well before baking bacon dripping is very good, or if butter is used, do not apply it until about five minutes before removing potatoes from oven. The fat softens the skm and makes it quite attractive. My next suggestion is new new to me, I should say. is 1 11 ) Baked Sliced Potatoes $ Wash medium sized potatoes very well and slice them lengthwise in 8 inch slices, and arrange m layer in baking dish sprinkling with salt and pepper and dots of bacon drippings or butter between layers When you have enough done for your family pour in just enough boiling water to cover bottom of dish, to prevent burning. Watch it and add water if necessary, but let cook away at the end. This gives a FTench fried effect, breaks up the skin a good deal be sure not to pare them and for adults for a variation, sprinkle them with cheese. It is one of the nicest ways of serving potatoes I know. For the reader enquiring about Vitamin B here is an ideal food and method of retaining it. Potato skms contain Vitamin B. Spinach With Beets $ One resourceful mother I know discovered that her daughter who Is finicky about vegetables, would eat both spinach and beets if mixed together but neither of them separately. Now she is using the canned products, mixing one can of spin ach with one can of beets, and draining the liquid into her soup pot. The combined vegetables are heated in top of double boiler and flavored butter and salt and pepper and a few drops of lemon juice (or vinegar for adults) or a cup thick cream sauce 3 Tomato Cakes This is an old-fashioned dish I can't remember hearmg of It since I was at heme as a child as kids we loved it. One cup canned The Bride Learns to Cook February Is a Month of Cherry Pies EASIEST way to insure a cherry pie with flaky under crust and juicy filling is to cook the filling first, then pour it into the crust and bake the two together only until the crust is golden brown. Top the pie with a regular crust with vents for the escape of steam or with a lattice crust made with strips of the pie dough. Combine three and one-half tablespoons of cornstarch, one-fourth teaspoon of salt, one cup of sugar and two-thirds cup of juice from canned cnerries. Place over moderate heat and cook, stirring constantly. unul the mixture is thickened and clear. Remove from the heat, add one tablespoon of butter and blend Then fold in two cups of canned, well-drained cherries. (Do not stir again). Set aside to cool while making pie dough. Roll pie dough one-eighth inch thick, fit into an eight-inch pie plate and trim so that one half inch of dough extends beyond the rim of the plate Fill witn the cherry mixture, place strips of dough in a lattice on top. trim off the ends and fold double m an upstanding rim around the edge of the plate with the overlapping margin of the undercrust. with the fingertips Bake in a 425-degree oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. tomatoes, 2 eggs, 12 soda crackers, rolled very finely, salt and pepper to taste, bacon drippings or other fat for frying or baking Season tomatoes and mash with half the crackers crumbs, add eggs and beat smooth Add remaining crumbs and shape into small flat cakes. For childien these should be baked and served in place of meat or other protein dish. For adults they could be baked or fried in deep fat or shallow fat when they are quite delicious. A cheap item for an interesting vegetable plate. 4- Delicate Mashed Parsnips j a Wash, pare and boil sliced parsnips m just enough salt water to cover, until tender enough to mash easily. In a separate dish boil 2 whole patatoes ifor 3 medium parsnips) and when they are tender add them to the parsnips, with 4 cup top milk and 2 tablespoons butter and mash very well, adding salt and pepper to taste. Some children might eat them more readily if more milk were added. Scalloped Carrots ? These may be baked in individual dishes for children to make them more attractive, but are much easier done In a large casserole. Shred cleaned carrots into buttered casserole, and pour over barely enough milk to cover. Add salt and pepper and dots of butter, cover tightly, and bake at 350 degrees F. until carrots are tender, and most of the milk has been taken up. If any readers have good vegetable ideas for children we would be glad to hear from them.

Just before removing from the fire add 1 dissolved oxo cube and teaspoon salt, cup finely chopped cooked leftover meat of any kind. Mix well and pour into mould and let stand to chill overnight to make it at its best. Slice and fry in hot dripping or in deep fat, to a golden brown. Serve piping hot. This is delicious served alone or with maple syrup. Thanks, Mrs. Scane, the four excellent recipes you sent will find a place on the page in the next week or two. I think this bacon substitute is a dandy and wish more Canadian cooks practised using j cornmeal mush like the folks in the South do. It is most economical, s easy to handle and a welcome change from potatoes. One merely needs ! to make twice too much porridge for breakfast, and pour the leftover j into a bowl or mould to chill, so It will slice firmly. j We shall be glad to hear from you at any time. !

Turn upside down on platter and serve hot. Miss Moore, you spoke of saving all your sweet leftovers in a glass jar and making it all into a pie once in a while.

My weight used to be 136 I would like to go on a diet. Would you please advise me on a proper diet and how to go about it? Is white bread fattening9 Please tell me the proper foods to 'eat. M G. ANSWER: Yes, white bread is fattening. I have mailed you a copy of our slimming diet Write again if you need further help with it. QUESTION- Im writing to see if you could help me plan some meals for my husband who has just had his teeth out. Would vou please send a copy of the Lima Bean Casserole Dish with Poik Chops? Thanking you for your help. MRS. MACDONALD. ANSWER As a general rule a dentist will tell a patient whose teeth are just removed to eat a soft diet such as one would serve an invalid or similar to the diet of a baby of 18 months This includes fine four-hour-cooked cereals, soft poached or soft cooked eggs in the snell, pureed vegetables (buy these in five-ounce cans put up for infant feeding for convenience), cream soups, pureed fruits (canned the same as the pureed vegetables), whole milk, and you might add to this such dishes as milk toast, well-cooked cornstarch puddings, junkets, custards, orange juice and bananas. If your husband had to live on that for a week his diet would not become monotonous and his nutrition would be perfect. Be sure you include the pureed vegetables and fruits and orange or tomato juice and bananas and he will not get indigestion.

But that Is only the beginnin Practical courses should be institute 1 so that the graduates of uruversitici will be able to fill the technical pox, tions so necessary for the ne i armv I have seen newspaper accounts c the fact that universities are a-r.ouneing courses in aeronautical ar. automobile mechanics. This is th spectacular part and is not enough Every college graduate today shon -have some training in such useL trades as carpentry, plumbing, stenog-graphy. typewriting, electrical tm chamcs, photography, metal workm-etc. Everybody thinks he is a carpei. ter, but that doesn't make him on--as we found in the emergency wne : the camp buildings had to be put up TRAINING IN COLLEGE In the army are needed hospit. 1 crderlie and they might as well t framed during the college years l first aid. the principles of surgicr-asepsis, bed making, taking tempera tures. pulse and respiration accuratel-. bed pan drill and elementary anatom and physiology. This applies to the female side c' the universities that are co-educa tional. We hear there is a shortage o! nursing material. Two hours a day for the coeds from ages 18 to 20 could be well spent in the same routine as tha. for the male hospital orderlies. Wi,li such training our girl graduates coul.i do 80 percent of the work of the trained nurse and do it quite effectively. In fact there Is no reason why such stnctly practical courses should no be continued as a regular part of th-university curriculum. The time' ahead are going to be stnctly practical for some decades. It will hardlv suffice for the universities to turn out only a group who are owlishly headed for PhD.s and teaching jobs, or are trained only in doctrinaire discussions of social science or protozoology.
