This job as had so many applications from eager volunteers that we were hard-pressed to choose the winner. However, you may be able to qualify as a doorbell pusher for the Cancer Drive, The Red Cross, The Children's Home Society, The March of Dimes, Th« Concert Association, The Home for Sick Cats or the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Angle Worms although there are many applications for these jobs also. Choosing our workers has become almost as much of a problem as the huge amount of contributions. They come in so rapidly we can hardly take them to the bank fast enough. Sincerely, 'Charities Incorporated. Dear Mr and Mrs Sigsbee: We are not sending you our Form X-67890543 this year. After thinking it over, we decided that because you have quite a few places to put your money and because you are such nice people, you will not have to pay any income tax this year. If you have any objections to this arrangement, please let us know at your earliest convenience. With love and kisses.

Santa Claus? y * * * Dear Parents: Would you like your child to receive better grades at school? Would you like him to have the priceless advantage of a whole new world at his finger tips? You cannot do this by purchasing our twenty volume set of the Juvenile World of Knowledge. If your kid is stupid to begin with he can read our books for the rest of his life and still be a slob. It'll only Tel his parents into hock for il98.99, $50.99 of which is hidden carrying charge. It figures out to 22c per day for eighteen months so think how much the kid could do with that money if he's interested in betting on the horses. Anyway, he can go down to the Public Librarv and read the very same books for free. Yours advisedly, World of Knowledge Publishing Co. I did receive some real mail this week and it was most welcome. Father and I had a letter from Jim Bishop in St. Louis and Mrs Gladys Barker sent such a good, "gab fest by mail," from Cedar Rapids. There were her usual good recipes and food ideas plus some interesting facts on the history of the use of mustard and vanilla. (Not together, of course.) February is Eat More Pork month in Kossuth county so I'm going to try to go. along with the project with a recipe for each week's specialty. This week its ham, with special prices on the 10-12 Ib. size at your retailers. Ham is wonderful eating, but if you buy one that large, the average family is sure to have leftovers — a desirable situation with ham. So here's a couple of ideas, both received during the recipe contest. The first is for Ham Casserole and it came from Mrs Donna Lichty of Elmhurt, 111. 1% cups noodles 2 tablsp. butter 2 tablsp. flour 1 cup milk 1 cup cut up American cheese 1 tsp. salt 2 tablsp. catsup 1 tablsp. horseradish 2 cups cut up ham 1 cup cooked peas 1 tablsp. butter zine ran out two or three months ago, but we didn't bother to send you notice of its expiration. We thought you'd know the time was up if we didn't send you the magazine. There isn't much of in- :erest coming up in the next few ssues so you won't miss any- hing by not renewing but if you nsist, we guess we can accept Cook the noodles, make white sauce of the 2 tablsp. butter, flour and milk. Add noodles to white sauce, add other ingredients and mix. Pour in baking dish and sprinkle with bread crumbs, Bake» for '%" hour 'iri""350 degree 'oven * » * The other recipe is for a good, hearty chowder just fine for cold weather. It uses the bone and the last scraps of ham. It comes • from Mrs Edna Teeter of Algona. Ham shank or picnic bone FEBRUARY SPECIAL UNBREAKABLE TUMBLERS 1 chopped onion 1 stalk celery l'/j quart cold water 1 quart diced potatoes 3 tablsp. chopped parsley .3 tablsp. flour 3 tablsp. butter Salt and pepper 1 quart milk Place ham bone, onion, celery and water in kettle. Cover and bring slowly to a boil. Simmer for about 1 hour. Remove bone, trim off meat, dice and add to stock. Add potatoes and half the parsley. Boil slowly until potatoes are tender. Make the white sauce out of the flour, butter, salt, pepper and milk add it to the stock and add additional seasoning to taste.
