Also, two drops of vanilla added to pie crust dough made with lard will take away any lard flavor. - o Keep shirt sleeves from tangling with other wash in your washer by buttoning them to buttons on front of shirt. - o - Cut out rounds of bread with doughnut cutter; spread with softened butter and sprinkle generously with shredded cheese. Place atop casserole. Overlap rings to trim. - o • An apricot honey topping is a refreshing and appetizing way to glamorize a plain cake.

WHAT'S COOKIN' With the graduation festivities coming up soon, most Mothers are busy planning receptions for their children.

Marie Duff on Finalist In Another Cooking Contest Wife wants her name on insurance policy By Abigail Van Bur«n 1C IWI kr Cklttw TrikuM-N. Y. NIM Swi*,, IK.) DEAR ABBY: I am writing this, doubting that I'll ever mail it. It's been on my mind for 18 years. Before my husband and I were married, he was married briefly to a raving beauty. They had one daughter. There were a lot of hard feelings, and he didn't see his daughter until she was 10 years old. She's a grown woman now. My complaint: My husband has a large insurance policy The beneficiary is his daughter. For the first 15 years of our married life, the beneficiary was his first wife, then he changed it. This just eats me up. We have a family of our own, Abby. What about them? And what about me? When I mention this to my husband, he says, "Don't worry you'll be taken care of." I know better. We don't own a business, or a house, or even a car. I have tried to be big about it, but I can't. If I were to make a scene and force him to change the beneficiary, he'd do it only because I forced him to. So what would I gain except the money? SAVANNAH DEAR SAVANNAH! What do you mean if you forced him to change the beneficiary all you would gain is "money"? That mwey is the difference between your being left a widow without a dime or one whose husband has left her and her family provided for. If I were you, I would make a scene! You're entitled to it. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been happily An Algona woman, Mrs. John J. Dutton, has added another cooking prize to her long list of kitchen achievements. She has won the honor of representing Iowa in the 23rd annual National Chicken Cooking contest to be held June 5 at Ocean city, Md. "Marie" will prepare her recipe for "Chicken Doll-up" in competition with finalists from 49 other states and the District of Columbia for the top prize of $10,000. Her recipe was selected through a detailed judging procedure from more than 15,000 entries. The annual contest is. sponsored by the Delmarva Poultry Industry Assn. in conjunction with the National Broiler Council. Regardless of the cook-off results, each of the finalists will receive $100 and a state winners trophy as well as the expense- paid trip to Ocean city. Besides the top prize of $10,000, there are $10,900 in runnersup prizes. Mrs. Dutton entered the contest once before - and won, of course. That was back in 1955 but she was unable to compete that year because Mr. and Mrs. Dutton's oldest son, George and his wife, were coming home from Japan at the same time. Mrs. Dutton's cooking prowess won a fine electric stove about four years ago in a Pillsbury bake-off at Los Angeles, Calif., with her dessert recipe of Peach Dancy. She also won a stove in 1954 1 with her Cheezy Fiesta Squares (hot biscuits) in a pills- bury bake-off at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, and she has won other prizes with her recipes. Here's Mrs. Dutton's recipe which could win her $10,000: CHICKEN DOLL-UP 1 broiler-fryer chicken,, cut in serving pieces 1 teaspoon salt 1/8 tsp. pepper 1/3 cup flour 1/2 tsp. marjoram 1 egg 2 T. water 1 cup cruncy nut-like cereal nuggets 1/4 cup corn oil 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup married for over a year now and we love each other very much. We have a good relationship with our in-laws considering we are both only children and live in the same town with both sets of parents. My problem is a bad habit my mother in law has. She is always talking about what my husband did when he was a baby, the cute things he said, the toys he had, and even the cute clothes he had. I realize that those childhood memories are precious to her, but she bores me and everyone else to death with that kind of talk. I don't want to hurt her feelings by asking her to cut it out, so maybe if you print this letter she-will see it and it will wt hom «- CHILDHOOD BLUES DEAR BLUES: If ihe doesn't see this, or if she sees tt and tt doesn't hit home, don't worry. Your problems will solve themselves as BOOB as YOU have a baby. Then she'll bore everybody with talk of her grandchild! DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for five months and the only problem we have is with our landlady. She lives downstairs and says she has to have a key to our apartment in case it rains while we are gone and she has to close our windows. Or if she smells a gas leak or smoke from our apartment. Well, we have proof that she comes in and snoops around in our drawers and closets. She never rings the bell or knocks. She just lets herself in with her own key. Several times she scared me half to death because I didn't even know she was in my apartment until I turned around and saw her. Our door key fits our mailbox, so now she brings me my mail, saying she wants to save me the trouble of getting H myself. Abby, I prefer to get my own mail! Once she let herself in and opened our bedroom door when my husband and I were IN bed. Can you believe it? What do you advise us to do? NO PRIVACY DEAR NO: Have a chain lock put on your door M that she can't eater while you are Inside. That will uuure privacy. Chance the lock M yow door aod don't give her a key.
