We're talking about brunch. Webster calls it "a meal serving as both breakfast and lunch," its use colloquial. With our interest in short cuts and efficiency, where else but in this country would brunch be so cherished? Some food snobs have fore- sworn the use of this word, but in spite of these would - be tastemakers, the word — and the meal — are here to stay. Brunch describes perfectly the way Americans like to have their first meal on Sundays. What may be offered at brunch? NOT the foods served at a large and heavy mid-day Sunday dinner — not roast meat, with the exception of ham. If baked ham is served, its partner may be spoon bread or hominy grits. Do not add a green or yellow vegetable with, again, the exception of tomatoes. Fried tomatoes, accompanied by bacon and eggs, have been a Southern specialty for years; they're excellent with baked ham at brunch and may be served baked or broiled instead of fried. Eggs, in almost any form, are of course a mainstay for brunch. So is fish — creamed finnan bad- die or smoked cod, grilled trout or kippers, or golden - brown fillets. Cereal may or may not be offered after a first course of fruit or fruit juice. But a special bread is almost a "must," especially if there are guests. For a new hot bread for this meal, you might like to try these muffins made with a new product — packaged toasted coconut. Coconut Muffins 2 cups sifted flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt % cup sugar 1 - 1-3 cups packaged moist toasted coconut 1 egg 1 cup milk Vt c u p butter or margarine, melted Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Stir in coconut. Beat egg until thick and pale colored; add milk and beat to combine; add to sifted dry ingredients %vith melted butter. Stir just enough to moisten dry ingredients, do not beat out lumps. Fill greased muffin pans about two - thirds full. Bake in a hot (425 degrees) oven 20 to 25 minutes or until cake tested inserted in center comes out clean. Remove at once and serve piping hot. Makes 12 large muffins. Ann Landers Wait Until the Timber Flies DEAR ANN: Last year we moved to this exclusive Northern California suburb, were accepted immediately and invited to join The Club. This has been helpful to my husband's business. 'One couple seems especially fond of us. Perhaps I'm imagining things but the woman (who is beautiful) always maneuvers around so she can sit next to my husband in the theater, the car, and at parties. He doesn't seem to mind one bit. In the meantime, she tells me r e p e a tedly that her husband (who is a great pincher) thinks i I'm devastating. ?Last night she Basked me if I > thought HE was • attractive. I said Ann Landers. "Of course," and tried to change the subject. She then suggested we four fly to Mexico for a few days and half- jokingly added, "Ray and I have been married 11 years and we think it's time for a change." I've heard of couples switching A Lovelier You mates but I never believed it actually happened. My husband says I'm cracked — that she meant no such thing. He thinks the trip would be fun. What should I do? GAMES IN BURLINGAME DEAR GAMES: If this couple has a switchman's picnic in mind you'll get the pitch eventually, right there in good old Burlingame. So I don't think it matters much whether you go to Mexico. Your husband may be one of those obtuse types who needs a building to fall on his head, so wait quietly until the timber flies—and then let him handle it. * * * * DEAR ANN: My wife's aunt, a retired school teacher, made her home with us for 10 years. We loved her and never considered her a burden. She helped with the housework and the children until she became too ill two years ago. She paid no room or board (we wouldn't hear of it) but she did pay her own medical bills. Last week Aunt Liz passed Figures Are Blimpier By MARY SUE MILLER Many lovelies are wiggling into a dress size that they once slipped into. One of their number, trying on new clothes, was heard to say to the saleswoman, "They must be making dresses smaller. A size 14 always fits me perfectly, but those you've brought me are too tight." Well there's news for the lady and her counterparts. Sizing is not skimpier; figures are blimp- ier! Over a lazy summer, weight creeps up unnoticed and then all of a sudden you are in a higher sizo bracket. Happily, you can cut buck in about a month if you take four stops. The first of course is a sensible diet. The others are spot exercise, improved posture and proper corsetry. By itself, each step offers a figure bonus. But only all four, in combination, achieve perfection sizing. Let's see why: —A diet adjusts weight, but its effects on proportions are limited. Weight could be normal and hips outsized. —Spot exercise distributes weight and firms muscles so that they are enabled to gird poundage. —Other than grace, the purpose of good posture is that it holds the body in natural balance. Poor carriage develops all sorts of imbalances, and that is what accounts for many of the bulgy spots. —Proper corsetry both assists posture and the molding of flesh. By "proper" Is meant unstretch- ed garments. We proceed from there? to corsetry that refines, but never restricts. Diet and Like It! Reduce without starving!

Her will was probated a few days ago. We never knew she had anything. It was a surprise to find she had a tidy sum in municipal bonds and Liberty Bonds from World War I which she inherited from her father. She left everything to us. This morning the telephone began to ring. My wife's sister and brother feel that since Aunt Liz was off her rocket toward the end it is up to us to share the money with them even though the will does not read that way. We are not aquisitive people and there is no great fortune involved here, but we want to do the right thing. What is it? SUDDENLY SOLVENT DEAR SUDDENLY: If Aunt Liz had wanted them to share in the inheritance she would have provided for them. I see no reason for you to feel guilty about enjoying the money—all of it. * * * * DEAR ANN: The letter from the staff who complained about the boss bringing the three kids to the office when his wife went out of town to visit her family made me mad. Instead of grumbling and faulting the kids why didn't the girls in the office use a little imagination and keep those youngsters busy? They could have played a game called "Do Me A Favor." The kids would have loved sorting papers, cutting out things, looking for cer- f tain kinds of pictures in magazines. Even a box of crayons and something to color would have kept them busy for hours. Too many adults are not imaginative enough to occupy children's inquisitive minds and keep their hands busy. Then they blame the kids for being restless and destructive and call them "savages." If the crew in that office isn't bright enough to figure out how to keep three lively youngsters occupied I feel sorry for their boss. RELIEVED DEAR RELIEVED: Thanks for an excellent letter and an ideal solution. (Where were you when I needed you?) Are your parents too, strict? You can benefit from the experience of thousands of teenagers if you write for ANN LANDER'S booklet, How To Live With Your Parents," enclosing with your request 20c in coin and a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. £> Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Speaking of Your Health by LESTER L. COLEMAN, M.D. Baby Teeth Need Care Too "It really doesn't matter, they're only her baby teeth," is an erroneous attitude, often responsible for many dental problems in later years. Such conditions as changes of the bite, pain in jaw joints, premature loss of adult teeth, and unnecessary extractions have been traced to the neglect of the baby teeth. When a baby tooth is lost, the neighboring teeth tend to drift away from their normal position. As these teeth shift in location, biting surfaces become altered, and the jaw balance is disturbed. Simple Device In order to prevent the drift of teeth, Dr. Joseph J. Schachter of Canada has created a simple device which maintains the most favorable position of the teeth on each side of the, "vacant space". This new space maintainer has been successfully tried for the past two years, and already has the scientific sanction of the American Dental Association. This inexpensive appliance is painlessly introduced in a single office visit. There is no drilling, no need for impressions or complicated soldering. The steel band which is the basis of the device can be made by dentists in general practice without complicated instruments. Does The Job The new space maintainer keeps the teeth adjacent to the empty space stable and unshift- ing until the permanent tooth grows into the space that is waiting to receive it. Preventive dentistry for the preservation of the teeth is the ultimate objective of dental programs. This device is a valuable addition to this concept of preventive medicine.

Its delicate lining is vulnerable to injury from poisons and irritants that are accidentally swallowed. It is affected, too, by tumors and infections that interfere with its normal function. In 1955, a surgical innovation was made by Dr. Henry J. Heimlich who fashioned a tube of tissues from a patient's own stomach and used it to replace the diseased esophagus. Preparatory planning for this intricate surgery seemed endless, with r.very possible source of failure anticipated. A Success The operation worked, and was successful! Now this delicate surgery is being expanded and is used when the severe narrowing of the esophagus prevents the swallowing of food. This operation is not routinely performed. It is carefully selected for highly specialized cases. Dr. Heimlich's operation is a unique contribution to surgical advancement. THE FORCE OF FEAR Fear seems to be everywhere. To paraphrase Emerson, fear is a circle whose circumference is everywhere and whose center is nowhere. Fear does not "stand up to be counted". Because it is hidden, it is not charted in the statistics of the disease of man, even though it ranks as one of man's greatest demoralizers. Discuss your fears with your advisors. Face fear frankly. These columns are designed to relieve your fears about health through a better understanding of your mind and body. All the hopeful new advances in medicine reported -here are known to doctors everywhere. Your individual medical problems sliould be handled by your own doctor. He knows you best. Soroptimists Plan Extra Monthly Meeti?ig Plans were made 'Thursday night by the Soroptimist Club for an extra monthly meeting to be held for make-up purposes.
