THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1939. MURPHY WILL ENFORCE LAW Attorney General To Take Over Responsibility Under Hatch Bill. WASHINGTON, Aug. 4.—Attorney-Gen. Murphy Thursday accepted responsibility for enforcement ol the new law curbing political activities of most Federal em- ployes. He told his press conference that a citizen was entitled to complain to the Justice Department against alleged violations of the statute, just as he might report infractions of other Federal laws. Murphy expressed the opinion tbat enforcement of the measure "does lie with the Department of Justice." A reporter observed that in Pittsburgh a Federal District Attorney and Assistant District Attorney were campaigning for office in the Democratic primaries in September. "If' these men continue to campaign, the public will get the idea the law does not take," the newsman added. "The law is only 24 hours old," Murhpy replied. "That question concerns me very much, not alone because these public officials and the public as well ought to know if they come under the law. It can very well be said to the Attorney General that he has a personal responsibility. I'm prepared to meet that and will do it promptly." Murphy pronounced the law a good one, and' said he would welcome a test of its constitutionality. ' ' When President Roosevelt signed the measure yesterday, he asked the Attorney General to see that "the civil rights of every government employe may be- duly protected and that the element of fear may be removed." While he discussed the new law with reporters, a proposal to restrict political activity of state employes paid in part by Federal funds won approval of the Senate Civil Service "Committee. Senator Neely (D-WVa author of the measure, said he had no hope that Congress would act on it at this session, but predicted it would become law before he 1940 campaign got into full swing. Mr. Roosevelt suggested such legislation to Congress yesterday when K£ signed the bill by Senator Hatch (D-NM) against political activities of Federal Jobholders.

Potomac St. Phone 1133 Caskey's Three New Loaves NOW AT YOUR GROCERS LIGHT FOOD is what we crave in the good old summertime declares Dorothy Greig I N some ways summer meals are more difficult to plan and prepare than those of -winter. Families have a way of balking at the hearty meat-and-potato-and-vegetable standbys they enjoy in cool weather. "I don't feel hungry", they'll say. "Let's just have a bite of something light." , Well, there are ways of meeting that situation so that the members of the family will think they are getting a "light bite" but you will know they are eating the necessary foods that are good for them. Individual Ham Molds make an inviting dish for a hot day. For instance, you can start a meal with a light but nourishing hot soup, such as vegetable, chicken.or tomato. Out of a can, of course, which saves you work. That takes care of the one hot dish we should have at every meal to help keep us fit. This can. be followed up with per- haps'a meat loaf, sliced and served cold instead of hot as in winter. Vegetables appear raw in salads and as relishes instead of cooked and hot Fruits, fruit shortcakes, frappes. mousses and ice cream (made in your refrigerator) may be substituted for winter's pies, puddings and cakes. Popular at our house is a jellied ham and cream cheese mold. It looks light arid delicate yet actually is substantial and nourishing. It is made like this: Ham Mold, New Orleans Style 1 package cream cheese 1 can condensed chicken gumbo soup 2 teaspoons gelatin, soaked in 2 tablespoons water 1 cup ground ham 4-5 tablespoons salad dressing or mayonnaise Sprinkle the 2 teaspoons of gelatin in the 2 tablespoons of water and let stand 5 minutes. Put the cream cheese in a saucepan and add % of the can of chicken gumbo soup, just as it comes from the can. Heat until the cheese and soup are well mixed. Add the remaining soup and then dissolve the soaked gelatin in the hot mixture. Cool and then add ham and salad dressing or mayonnaise. Pour into molds • and chill in the refrigerator until firm. Makes 6-7 individual molds. And here's a chicken shortcake we like a lot, too: Chicken and Mushroom Shortcake 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup Vz cup milk 1 egg yolk 1 cup chicken, cut into about Vz inch squares • Empty the cream of mushroom • soup into a saucepan, mix well, then add the milk and heat. Beat the egg yolk and pour some of the hot sauce over it. Then add it to the rest of the cream of mushroom sauce, together with the cut chicken. Dough for Shortcake: 2 cups flour y 2 teaspoon salt 3 teaspoons baking powder 4 tablespoons butter % cup. (approximately) milk Sift the flour, measure, add salt and baking powder and sift again. Cut the shortening into the flour, then add the milk by mixing in a small amount at a time until a stiff dough is formed. Roll out the dough and cut into individual shortcake biscuits about 2% inches in diameter. Place on buttered baking sheets and bake in hot (450° F.) oven for 15-20 minutes. * Split the baked shortcake, butter while hot. and put one spoonful "Creamed Chicken and Mushroom" over the bottom half of the biscuit. Replace the top and put one spoonful of mixture over the top. Serve* 5-6. Plum Sauce 2/3 cup granulated sugar 2 tablespoons flour 1 cup water or plum juice 1/2 cup seeded plums 1 tablespoon butter 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract 1/8 teaspoon salt Blend the sugar and flour. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for three minutes. Stir constantly. Serve hot, on top of the cobbler. Egg whites usually beat up into greater volume if they are at room temperature.

Chilled and Jellied Soups E VERY summer more and more of us decide that we like chilled soups and jellied soups very much indeed. And they are delicious, served spicily seasoned and accompanied by cheese straws or crackers. In planning a meal, however, that includes a chilled or jellied soup, it is wise to have the following course a hot one—for we all need, a little hot food at every meal. Modern jellied soups are simplicity itself, for many canned soups actually Jell in the can in the refrigerator. For instance, condensed consomme^, condensed consomme Madrilene and condensed consomme Printanler left in the refrigerator will jell in about four hours. When mealtime arrives you just open them and serve In cups with a wedge of lemon on the side. Then there are the chilled liquid soups. Creme Vichyssoise is perhaps the most popular of these, probably because it is nothing but a chilled version of that old family favorite, potato soup. Creme Vichyssoise 2 tablespoons butter l*,i cups leeks, sliced '.£ cup onions, sliced 1 quart potatoes, sliced 1 pint water 2 cans condensed chicken soup 1 pint cream 1 pint milk 2 1 /- teaspoons salt Vs teaspoon pepper Cook the onions and leeks in the melted butter until soft, but not brown. Then add the sliced potatoes and water and cook for 20-30 minutes. Heat the chicken soup and add to the potatoes and leeks and continue cooking for about 10 minutes. Force through a fine sieve. Season with salt and pepper. Heat milk and cream and add to the puree. If the mixture is not real smooth put through a fine sieve again. Makes about two quarts of soup. Serve chilled. Ten minutes before serving mix chopped mint leaves into the chilled soup. Delicious! Watercress or parsley chopped fine are two other choices as garnishes for this soup Sugar Plum Cobbler 2 cups seeded plums 2/3 cup granulated sugar 2 tablespoons flour 1/S teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind 1 cup water or plum juice 2 tablespoon butter Mix the plums with the sugar, flour and salt.

Cut out five circles and arrange on top of the plums. Prick each circle several times with a fork. Bake SO minutes in a moderate oven. Serve warm or cold. Beets Somerset 3 cups diced cooked beets 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 1/4 teaspoon celery salt 1 tablespoon horseradish 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/S teaspoon paprika 1 tablespoon vinegar 1/3 cup thick sour creani Mix the ingredients.
