DOUBLE-DUTY CHEST DEAR POLLY—A hope chest for a teenage daughter can serve a double purpose as a seat. Cover foam rubber with material to match room draperies as a pad for the top. Make a gathered or pleated skirt and tnck tape across me top just inside the box to hold the skirt. Make two pillows to match to slnnd up across the back of the scat. I enjoy my hope chest that is fixed like this very much and so do my friends. —A 15-YEAR-OLD. GIKLS—If your hopes hiivn nlready come true, this would Iw n good Idea for getting double use, of un old cedar chest that could hold bedding, toys or out-of-season clothing. —POLLY.

DEAR POLLY--When using n chart for knitting patterned mittens or Avgyle socks, it is often confusing to follow the maze of dots, blank squares, crosses and so on that denote a change of color.

Use bacon fat when you are making cream of corn soup, then garnish with crisp bacon crumbles. Good! Add a suspicion of curry powder to sour cream and use as a topping for bowls of hot cream of tomato soup. Stir creamed salmon as little as possible so the fish will stay in chunks. A liltle cooked chopped spinach leftover? It's delicious added to cheddar cheese soup—homemade or canned. If a sour cream sauce for meat or poultry is too pale, remember you can always add a few drops of brown gravy seasoning. Creamed chipped beef makes a nice changeover on a Sunday brunch menu. Use four ounces of the beef to two cups of medium cream sauce. When recipe says "Coat meat with seasoned flour" and the recipe is for stew, it's safe to use % cup flour, 1 teaspoon salt and *4 teaspoon white pepper lor two pounds of boned meat cut in two-inch pieces. To prepare loin veal chops for stuffing, place the chops on a cutting board. With a sharp knife split in half to the bone to create a "pocket" to hold the stuffing. After the chops are stuffed, toothpicks can be used to hold ends together. Two cups of seasoned mashed potatoes are enough to stuff six to 8 frankfurters. Slit the franks in half lengthwise but not all the way through, then spread open and stuff with the potato. Bake in a hot oven or broil until franks are hot through and potatoes browned.
