4- Algeria Upp«r D«* Mofnes Tuesday, March 7, 1950 QKUMlld \N0tU If no one at your house has had the flu, measles, mumps or any of the other diseases prevalent hereabouts, you are lucky. At our house we have all been ill with the exception of Father, and we are expecting him to succmub at any moment. Temperatures and inspection for measles rash has become a part of our morning routine. Nothing further having developed, after a week of illness, we conclude that we have all had the old-fashioned flu. When Mama has to battle the flu herself and still tend the sick kiddies, it amounts to an epidemic. * « * I am grateful to Mrs. C. B. Muriagh who sent me that recipe for buckwheat pancakes thai I was so anxious to get. It is noi nearly so complicated as I feared and I will try it as soon as something besides canned soup appeals to my family. Then I'll pass it on to you. • • • Mrs. Murtagh also says, "I wonder if any woman living in Al- gpna has discovered a method of ridding her house of box elder bugs. They seem to like old houses best. I had swarms of them all fall and up until Christmas. Even now I can gather up a dozen or so any morning. They may not be harmful, but surely they are not clean in their habits and are very annoying." Mrs. Muriagh wrote to ihe extension service at Ames for their literature on controlling household pests but the information didn't seem to tell us what to do after the bugs nave arrived. They did say that the little pests appear in cycles of abundance and scarcity. Their first recommendation is to remove all box elder trees in the vicinity of the house as these bugs do live primarily on these trees. Mrs. Murtagh says, "A box elder tree is not a beautiful tree—but has been planted quite frequently, I think, because it is a fast-growing tree. Perhaps there are a few that could be cut down and not missed too much. I know some people used a spray on the foundation of their house in the fall when the bugs first began to accumulate. I would like to know what it was, and if it was successful." * * » If anyone has any ideas on ihe box elder bug problem, please send them in. I thought with the corning of winter they would disappear, but I know from experience that they are still around. Maybe we girls will have to organize a posse and cut down the box. elder trees around town. So if you see a bunch of us, armed with hatchets, we aren't playing Carrie Nation, .we are only trying to eliminate one of our more annoying household pests. At the Allen Buchanans ihe sons, Bucky. 4, and Greg, 2, were preparing for a visit to their grandparents. Bucky, oldest and wisest, told Greg that you could ask Granpa for anything you want and Grandpa would give it to them. Greg said he thought he would ask for toys, but Bucky said he was going to ask for string beans! That's the Buchanan brothers' favorite treat. Sometimes the kiddies' favorite foods are surprisingly simple. At our house, it's poached eggs on toast, and I try not to overdo it because they are so easy to fix when Mama and Dad are eating out. » * w This week's recipe is another one for your Lenten meals. It is for Cheese Fondue. This was a favorite when I used to go to Mrs. Leota Halpin's when her children were all home. I don't know if it is her exact recipe but it's the one I use now. It calls for 1 cup mtlk, scalded, 1 cup sofe bread crumbs, V4 cup grated American cheese, 2 tablespoons melted butter, Vz teaspoon salt, Vs teasp. pepper, 3 egg yolks and 3 stiff- beaten egg whites. Combine milk, crumbs, cheese, butter, and seasonings. Stir in unbeaten egg yolks. Carefully fold in egg whites. Pour into greased baking dish. Bake in pan of hot water in moderate oven, 350 degrees, until firm, about 30 to 45 minutes. * * * Another cheese .dish I have always wanted to try is a souffle. But I am always hindered by the warning in the recipes that the dish must be served immediately or it will fall. It semms everv time I plan something that should be eaten right away, Daddy is delayed or some interruption spoils my plans. Maybe I should get the family to the table anu m mt them wait for the food, rather than have the food wait for them. But I am going to try a Baked Alaska—you know, ice cream and cake covered with meringue and baked in a hot oven. It has always sounded lik» a very glamorous dessert and I have a recipe that claims it is very easy to do. I have my We Want to Know You ... .... Yes we assumed ownership and management of the cafe formerly owned by Mr. and Mrs. John H. Foth just recently. ....

You are no sooner in it, than you are itching to get out." — GRACE Farewell Party For LuVerne Folk LuVerne — The congregation of St. John's Lutheran church and their pastor, the Rev.
