These recipes call for such For lunch or supper you might like to couple frankfurters with one of the new frozen vegetable combinations, green lima beans with tomatoes and seasonings. foods as precooked rice; canned vegetables, fruits, fish and meat; and bottled salad dressing. But there are also a good many calling for fresh foods that may be prepared quickly. The recipe categories include the" customary range, from appetizers to desserts, and there's advice on "outdoor or plug-in- anywhere cooking." Along the' way, Mrs. Langseth-Chrisensen adds a good deal of comment out of the Aus- trian background of her growr ing-up years and her later long years of experience in this country.

Seams to Me Pointers on Applying Zippers By PATRICIA SCOTT Since knife-pleated skirts are so popular in the fall and winter, here are some pointers on how to apply zippers on them. The zipper in a knife-pleated skirt is inserted in the seam that joins the two ends of the pleated fabric and the seam must be prepared with this in mind. It may be placed at center back or on the left side of the skirt. Figure A: To secure the pleats at top of skirt, baste across pleats, leaving 3 pleats free at each end. Working on the right side of skirt, open out the end pleat on each side. Bring the first pleat on one side over the other side, as illustrated, so that underfolds are matched and pleats have a continuous appearance. Pin this pleat, as in diagram, all the way down. On the inside, baste together all the way down the underfolds you have matched. Stitch seam along basted line from bottom skirt to where zipper will start, and leave the opening basted. Press out creases in seam allowance; press seam open with tip of iron, so as not to disturb pleats; trim seam allowances to one inch. Figure Bs Set skirt on machine with bulk of fabric to the left, allowing a single seam allowance to extend as illustrated, Place zipper on, face down, full width of zipper teeth on seam allowance and edge of teeth right against the basted line. Stitch, using regular presser foot, and edge of foot ' against teeth. As you stitch, check to see if zipper teeth are in correct position by lifting zipper over 2 or 3 inches. Figure Os Change to your zipper foot. Turn zipper right side up, folding seam allowance close to zipper teeth. Top• stitch along fold the full length of zipper tape,; as illustrated. • Figure D!
