MERRY CHRISTMAS To All! The Friendship and Patronage you have afforded us are worthy of our sincere and most hearty thanks. Western Union Telegraph Co. ED. F. SWEETSER, Manager I I BIRUM-OLSON CO. BUICK SALES AND SERVICE C-HRISTfllflS There's no time like Christmas time to wish all of our friends— Good Cheer, Good Health and Peace. "May the Yuletide •*> season and the days to follow glow with an abundance of good things" ... is our wish to one and all. dL ot Harry Tamres Maurice Kitsis CASSEROLE MEAL IS AMONG SUGGESTIONS Christmas thoughts, along with suggestions for holiday eating, are in the food column this week. Three of a kind, a fruit cup to begin a meal, a good main dish casserole and a supper salad are the recipes which Mrs. Reeves provides for her readers this week. How thankful everyone should be, always, but especially on Christmas for health, friends and family. Now don't start numerating and feel sorry for yourself but look around and you will / find the world is made up of the same kind of people. Some are rich and cantankerous; some are not well and are whiners; some are poor and despondent. Let me give you a Christmas present which a nice old Mormon woman gave me when I was feeling sorry for myself and telling her my troubles, j She said, "Honey, no back was ever made that is not strong enough for the load it has to bear." If we could just pick up the other fellows load we might be glad it was not ours. This Christmas I am proud great grandmother so the world is full of sunshine. If we could apportion all the good things of life wouldn't it be fine. We can't do that but we can share what we have. If you know of any one who will be all alone this Christmas make a place for him or her with vour group and see how you will be rewarded by their joy and thankfulness. The food was to be the topic. That's important too, but do you know that through all the years we have talked about foods there has been a doubt in my mind as to any one changing a single thing on their Christmas dinner menu. As a family we always had "this, that or the other." Thats fine so this is just a few suggestions for those who need a bit of help. Lets start with something which may be used as a fruit cup to be served at the beginning of the meal or for a delicious dessert. Three-Qf-a-Kind Take 3 of each of the following: 3 oranges 3 egg whites 3 bananas 3 cups water 3 lemons 3 cups sugar Squeeze juice from oranges and lemons. Mash bananas, put all through a strainer. Add water and sugar, stirring constantly. When put in refrigerator tray and when half frozen, add stiffly beaten egg whites. Replace in tray and freeze as desired. A Good Casserole Main Dish (6 or 8 Servings) 1 package fine noodles 1 can tuna (2 if desired) 1 small can pimiento 1 small can mushrooms 1 No. 2 can peas Salt and pepper as needed li pint thick white sauce corn flakes for topping. Cook noodles until tender, drain. Mix 7 ingredients together. Place in a greased casserole top with cornflakes and bake £ hour in moderate oven. An old fashioned salad inexpensive and easily made: Vegetable Nut Salad Six sweet-sour pickles, 6 hard cooked eggs, 1 can drained canned peas. Mix all together, add mayonnaise as needed. For a hearty salad to serve 8: Supper Salad 1 package plain gelatin 2 cups water 3 cups cubed cooked or canned corn beef 6 tablespoons mayonnaise boiled dressing 4 hard cooked eggs 2 cups shredded cabbage 1 cup grated carrot Tangy French dressing as liked. Prepare gelatin and chill until syrupy. Put corned beef through food grinder. Add mayonnaise or .boiled dressing. Chop eggs, add. Fold men* mixture into vegetables and add dressing. May you all have the kind of a Christmas you like. or Paraplegics Get Date With Miss America Minneapolis, (U.R) — Albert Gasthner and Lawrence Swauson had a date Thursday with Bebe Shopp—Miss America of 1948— while a choral group from the Minnesota School of Business serenaded them. Gasthner and Swanson are paraplegics, meaning they suffer from a form of paralysis that confines them to bed almost perpetually. Gasthner, 29, is a war veteran from Dickinson, N. Dak. He was wounded in the Italian campaign and is confined . at the veterans hosiptal here. Swanson, from Excelsior, Minn., is a civilian patient. Friends decided that the most cheerful sight for the 2 invalids would be to see downtown Minneapolis with all its Christmas decorations. Ralph Elliott, a businessman who aids paraplegics, arranged for a special car equipped to give them a clear view of the city, invited the choral group to entertain 1 them with carols, and set them up for the "date" with Miss Shopp. Christmas in Old Mexico a Gay Event Mexico City, (U.R)—There'll be no white Christmas this year in Mexico. But there'll be a gay one. It never has snowed on Christmas in. the history of the city, and no one expects snow for this one. But children and grown-ups here celebrate just as gaily, and Santa wears the same old red and white suit with the same long whiskers. Christmas actually is-here already. Traditional "posadas" have begun with singing and dancing and eating. Children press noses against toy shop windows and Santa Glaus—who here is plain San Nicolas—is grinning back from dozens of store windows. One American store has a big mechanical laughing Santa in its biggest display window. The laughing Santa stops traffic day and night. The posada, traditional Spanish festival, literally means "inn." The fiesta represents the efforts of Joseph and Mary to find shelter in the inn at Bethlehem. Although modern posadas have assumed a 20th century character" as big parties for the sole purpose of drinking and dancing, the traditional posadas, based on a thousand years of custom, are still observed by many families. Two groups of men and women start from house to house, singing the old posada song, "Venimos a pedir posada en nombre del cielo" {"We come to ask lodging in the name of heaven"). The men represent Joseph, the women Mary. When they reach the actual "po- sada," a welcoming committee inside sings the traditional responses and admits them. Youth Steals Car From Auto Thief Des Moines, (U.R)—Police planned to file auto theft charges Thurs- day against Edward G. Martin, 19, who said he stole a car that had been stolen first by someone else. Martin said he took the car Tuesday on a street here. It was stolen from the owner, R. T. Duncan, at Monroe, Monday. Martin said he hadn't been out of the city for a-month. Officers are now searching for the man who stole the car first. We extend to you and yours the joys and good wishes of the season, and may the coming year be full of happiness.
