f T by Margaret Latrobe Those pies “just like Mother used to make”— were they really good or did they seem so because we had got used to the way she made them? And anyway we were alwaj s hungry so it w'ouldn’t have made any Terence There were some exceptional cooks among those mothers whose sons now remind the little woman that she does okay on LATROBE strudel but can’t touch the homemade soup like Mother used to make I'm inclined to think though that many a flabby pie crust and countless scorched items were idealized by children who learned to like whatever Mom fetched from her cookstove Cynics will tell you that young boys will be deprhed the pleasure of taunting future wies with mamma’s cooking It’ll be “Couldn’t we buy the same brand of frozen food that Mamipa used to buy?” Or— “Hey dear this cake mix isn’t the one we had at home!” I’m here to testify that there's individuality right in that store-boughten package and that where one super-fluffy cake emerged in the good olden times hundreds are being turned out this instant by little ladies who’d never make it otherwise I think fine cooking is like fine gardening There are them as can and them as never could the best day they ever saw My observation is that where one may be almost supernatural-ly gifted with a batch of dough she can’t cook meat any way but awful That where one lady has nimble fingers with watercress do-dads on sandwiches good solid mashed potatos leave her hysterical Where one female plants orchards picks peaches and can't wait to get them plopped into mason jars — preserves jelly conserve marmalade — another equally bright woman would sooner scrub floors than do battle with toast-toppings If certain quick-witted and kindly industrialists have made it easy for us to take up the slack in our cooking talents by providing mixes for dough-doubt-fuls — I say hurray It's a help If they assist us to better cuisines by doing for us those things which don’t come natcherlly or any other way — loud huzzahs from this quarter We may be rearing a generation of kids who will say “The old girl made a fine souffle — but couldn’t do apple pies for sour apples Didn’t put any sugar in ’em you know!” At least they got fed like it or lump it j Mrs Tuttle Hostess Today To Bridge Club Mrs A H Tuttle entertained members pf her bridge club Wednesday vvivm she was hostess at her home 703 South Terrace for a 1 o’clock dessert-bridge Members attending the courtesy included Mrs Flynn Ball Firs Maurice Bebb Mrs E A Edmondson Mrs George Leopold Mrs E B Maytubby Mrs George Shimoon Mrs Claude Sledd Sr and Miss Gertrude Davis SPECIAL PURCHASE D of WOMEN’S SHOES Famous Nationally Advertised Brands DRESS CASUALS FLATS WEDGES All Colors but not In Every Style Styles that can be worn now and into Spring SALE STARTS THURSDAY 9 AM SHARP For The Convenience Of The Working Personnel 417 WEST Heart Pizza Romantic AP Newsfeatures How about a pizza pie party for Valentine's Day?
