Make New Year's Black-Eye Peas Potent With Luck You may discount this folklore, but who is going to risk his luck in 1961 without eating generous helpings of black-eye peas on New Year's Day? Some folks say that for every black-eye pea you eat on New Year's Day, you can expect to earn a dollar to match it during the coming year. At this rate, even if you ate a dozen helpings, you could count on makjig only about a thousand dollars next year, for there are less than a hundred peas in a tablespoonful. When this tale started during the hard times that followed the Civil War, you were a mighty "lucky" man if yon could make a thousand dollars a year! To make your black-eye peas as potent as possible with luck, be sure to cook them with hog jowl. What flavor that imparts— if not luck.

Don't take your hat off on an elevator — takes up less room on your head than in your hand. Hat- ipping is more or less a custom of the past, says the magazine. :t's still good manners for a brief encounter, to greet someone or when a passer -by is accidentally jogged, but not absolutely necessary. The rule ol "ladies first" holds in regard to escalators. Let her step on first, then follow. The theory here is that you provida a bulwark to the leeward if she trips. Whether you're piloting two or 20 women down main street, your position is toward the outside, next to the curbstone. This custom dates from hqrse and buggy days when full-skirted ladiei might be splashed by passing carriage, says the magazine. Out Of Season A strawberry dessert in midwinter is a cinch when you serve strawberry cream. Dissolve one bounce package of lemon-flavored gelatin in 1 cup of hot water.
