Potato Soup Cold Gets Fancy M. VlChyssoise — a fancy name for potato soup. Conlravy to the practice of serving most soups hot, we have come to expect yichyssois to be cold, a! though there is no reason it cannot be offered hot. Under the French title, it has become so popular that certain restaurants serve it as the first course even in cold weather. It is found most refreshing on a hot summer day. Apparently vichyssoise is an American invention although the title is French. No one seems to know who served It originally nor, why it was given this title. The only recipe in a French cook book that is labeled "vlchy" is one for carrots. Apparently these were popular at n famous Spa in Vichy, France, but we look in vain Tor the soup that in this country we like so well. VICIIYSSOISB 6 leeks % cup butter, 2 cups thinly sliced potatoes 4 cups chicken stock Salt Pepper 1 cup heavy cream Remove stem ends and green tops of leeJks, leaving about 2 Inches above the white portion, and slice. Melt butter in saucepan, add leeks, and saute 5 minutes. Add potatoes .and chicken stock, and cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender. Force leeks, potatoes, and liquid through a seive, and combine with cream. Season to taste with salt: and pepper. Reheat if to be served hot, and serve garnished with minced parsley. If to be served cold, chill. Yield: 6 servings. Variation The leeks may be replaced by the same number of scallions. (© 1963, General Features Corp.)

Main Dish Potato Salad Not Cold One By EDITH M. DAKBER While salads are traditionally served crisp and cool, we make an exception when it comes to a main dish potato salad. Often we, serve this as an accompaniment to cold meat perhaps from Sunday's roast. A criticism that is sometimes heard in regard to its appearance is not unusual unless care is taken to add a note of color by combining the potatoes with a more colorful vegetable. This may be furnished by cooked green beans cut into half-inch pieces. The salad may be seasoned with minced or thinly sliced red or white onions. Preferably a hot dressing is poured over the vegetables which should be thoroughly mixed with it. HOT POTATO SALAD 4 medium potatoes % pound bacon 2 cups cooked green beans 1 medium onion chopped Salt Garlic salt Hot dressing (see below) Cool, peel and chop, potatoes, look bacon slowly until crisp, drain and reserve fat.

(© 1963, General Features Corp.) August Is Month of Vegetables By EDITH M. BAKBKK August is sometimes called the "lush" month as vegetables and fruits are so plentiful that they may be competing, with each other. We will take advantage of our favorites, among which will certainly be corn on the cob and tomatoes. While the latter are almost always to be found in the market, it is in August what we can buy them in quantities without hurting our pocket books, and usually by the basket rather than by the pound. Among fruits we will find: cantaloupes and certain berries featured in the market. Neither should be allowed to become overripe before they are refrigerated. (© 1963, General Features Corp.) FREE!

The Brissac carries a wild splash of color welded on her bow, the reproduction of an abstract design by French artist Renald Arnold. The artist was commissioned to produce something signifying movement of flight. His design, executed in seven bright colors, is to give the feeling of seagulls in flight. Brissac's deck crew has a full- time job keeping the artpiece shining. Be alert today, alive tomorrow. Fresh As Spring! Pint ALL FLAVORS ICECREAM HALF GAL. 69 Special Frit?
