Most of us like to get mail. . Even if its just an advertising circular or a bill, it's better than having the postman pass us up altogether. The best kind of mail, to Grace's notion is a long newsy letter from a friend, or a business-like looking envelope containing some sort of refund. Having received very few of either of these lately, I'm making up my own mail. These are unlikely letters which I have never received nor do I ever really expect to. But I can dream, can't • « • Dear Madame: In regard to the recent bank statement on your account, we are sorry to say that we made, a slight error of $322.61. In reconciling your check stubs with our statement, you were entirely right in your figures and the mistake was entirely ours. Your account now stands at $322.61 instead of being overdrawn $325.72 as you thought. If by any chance you should some time be actually overdrawn, please do not worry about it. We may get around to notifying you about it within four or five weeks. Affectionately, The State Bank. * * * Dear Grace: Thank you .for letting us see KOSSUTH COUNTY EAT MORE PORK Is Your "Best Buy" Featured This Week At All Meat Counters In Kossuth County your article entitled, "The Care and Feeding of Husbands." Although many factors enter into our choice of manuscripts we find this one exactly suits our needs. We are enclosing our check in the amount of $500 and ask that if you have any other work in progress, you let us see it first. Cordially, The Saturday Evening Post. * * * Dear Mrs Sigsbee: This is to notify you that you have just been awarded the title of Mrs America. The deciding factor in choosing you was the tailored suit, topcoat and evening dress which you sewed yourself although we were also much impressed by the way you drive a car. The prize in the Mrs America contest is a trip around the world for the whole family, a $100,000 savings bond and a ten year contract with Parametro Pictures. We beg that you will accept this title together with the prizes. Anxiously, The Mrs America Contest Committee. * * • Dear Friend: We regret exceedingly our having to turn down your application to be First Ward Chairman for all the charity drives during the years 1956 to 1970. This job has 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, The 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, The Collector of Internal Revenue. * * » Dear Subscriber: Your subscription to this magazine ran out two or three months ago, but we didn't bother to send you notice of its expiration.

Santa Claus? * * * Deaf 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 get his parents into hock for $198.99, $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. • • • . 1 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 1 /2 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 cookeoT peas 1 tablsp. butter 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 l k hour in 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 1 chopped onion 1 stalk celery 1 l i 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 on" 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. Garnish with the remaining parsley and serve with toasted croutons. —GRACE Whittemore News Mr and Mrs Herman Zumach, Mrs Adelia Meyer and Mrs Aurelia Leininger, and Mr and Mrs Otto Ruhnke of here, Mr and Mrs Arthur.
