Sal soda concentrated, the washing soda cleaning compound, has been a housecleaning' standby sinco before Grandma's day—which explains the Institute's interest in housecleaninc safety practices. Here, based on the Institute's statistics, is an ambulance driver's eye- view of the housecleaning carnage in the United States during an average year: Thirty-two thousand are killed, 130,000 are permanently injured and 4,750,000 are sufficiently injured to require a doctor's attention. Falls, alone, kill 16,000. Homemade, or bootleg cleaning compounds kill about G.OOO more through poisoning, explosions and fire. These national death and injury statistics are culled from police reports and other public records. The figures have remained roughly the same for the past five years, Prize Winning Recipes FRANKFURTER SOUP By Mrs Margaret Fraser, Cylinder Cook in salted water until tender: 2 cups sliced carrots 2 cups chopped potatoes Cook in sauce for 5 minutes: !4 cup butter '/a cup chopped onion Add vegetables and: 4 cups hot milk 1 teaspoon salt V4 teaspoon pepper 3 frankfurters sliced Heat to boiling point, serve hoi GOLDEN DAIRY SOUP (Serves 4) By Mrs John J.
