MONDAY, bcv.t/vibeR 9, lyoj HE. ISCVJI J i L .K- i i u * »J ,1. ViiiyUUiN, iLUlKOtb FOR LADIES ONLY . . . — iy SALLY — MRS. CYRIL ROTH OF ST. CHARLES, ILL., dropped a long overdue line in which she told me off for by-passing thai community when I spent my October vacation in Wisconsin . . (Now how about thai . . The fact of the matter is this . . .I've never been in Wisconsin in all my life.) So. since she is a constant subscriber to The Register-News . . . And, she tells me, a faithful reader of this column, then, in return for my bawling out, I'll send one back to her—like this . . . Check up on your old copies, Lucybelle, and you'll find that my vacation was Rpent in NILES, MICHIGAN . . . (And, by anyone's road map, that is a "MIGHTY FURR-AWAY PIECE" from St. Charles.) Speaking of her letter, not all of it was on the cheerful, chiding side ... As a matter of fact, she tells mo that Cyril is a surgical patient in Delnor Hospital in SI. Charles . . . .(This is to let him know that the word is heing spread among his old pinochle playing buddies .... And, could be, he'll bo getting some of those humorous cards which arc designed for just such occasions.) m m m Since this is the season of requested recipes—especially those for candy—I'm planning to include as many as possible in this column from now until after Christmas. MRS. WAYNE WEBB OF ROUTE TWO, DAHLGREN, has written requesting a recipe for peanut butter fudge . . . And. I was all set to give her a recipe from a cook book I've had for many years. . . . However, in Vridav's mail, I received a letter from MRS. GRACE HARRIS with a much easier method lor making this delicious candy ... So, I'm going to share her method with Mrs. Webb and, perhaps, other interested readers . . . Here is how she does it She takes one cup peanut butler —any style—one cup syrup, one and one-fourth cup dry non fat milk: and one and one-fourth cup sifted confectioner's sugar .... Directions .... Blend the peanut butter and syrup until smooth —using a lnrge bowl . . . now add the other ingredients . . . .mix with a spoon until solid—then, using the hands, knead the mixture .... now turn onto a board and continue kneading until the mixture is smooth and well Mended ... . Now, either with the hands or with a rolling pin, press the mixture until it is about one- fourth inch thick .... cut into squares and top each one with nut meats if desired .... Also, may be added to the syrup mixture. Note to Mrs. Webb. . . . When you say you've wasted a lot of sugar trying to make candy, believe me, kiddo. you're really reviewing the history of my candy-making attempts . . . Over the years, I've tried dozeas of candy recipes and, nine times out of ten, I wound up with SWEET GRAVY . . . And, it wasn't too easy to eat—even with a spoon .... So, I do hope you'll find this method will bring the results for which you've been hoping .... (I also hope you'll drop a line and let me know how you make out.) if desired, one-half cup cocoa from you. Mrs. Harris also answered my request for the chow mcin candy recipe--and so did MRS. JOHN H. WILLMORE OF INA . . . . Mrs. Harris prepares the candy this way . . . She takes one package chocolate chips and two packages butterscotch chips and melt them in top of double boiler . . . She then adds one can chow roein noodles and one cup peanuts . After blending the mixture, she drops it, by spoon, onto waxed paper and chills. Mrs. Willmore fixes the candy this way . . . She takes two packages chocolate chips and two packages of butterscotch chips- each in the six-ounce size . . . When melted over hot water, she removes from the heat and adds two three-ounce cans of chow mcin noodles and one-half cup peanuts or cashew nuts After blending well, she drops the mixture, by spoon, onto waxed paper and chilis. Note to both Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Willmore .... Well, t must say that I'm mighty happy about receiving these and the other recipes for this unusual candy Incidentally, I neglected to say that it was NORA COON who first asked about it .... So, next time I meet her, I'll make a point of asking which one—or, perhaps, how many, of the recipes she has tried . . . Meanwhile, I know she joins me in expressing appreciation to each and every one of you helpful gals. (As I've said before, I didn't know candy could be created with such an unusual blend of ingredients .... And, as I've said before, I'd really like to know just who dreams up such tasty concoctions in the first place . . . And, while I'm wondering, perhaps YOU might drop a line and tell me when you first heard about it.... Or where and when you first had a sample of it. . . . Or, could be YOU are the gal who actually originated it . . . So, how about letting me hear SOCIALLY YOURS ... 1 - By SALLY Mrs. Maude Piercy, who spent the past week visiting in the home of her sister, Mrs. Mcrriman, has relumed to her home in Centralia. • * • Mrs. Robert Gamble is visiting in the home of her sister, Mrs. Thomas S.

DEAR ABBY . . . Right - But Wrong! Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: Well, my husband opened Ins big mouth again, and now half the neighborhood isn't speaking to us. The school is nine blocks from here. Our kids walk. A neighbor couldn't, get. her car started, so she ran over here all excited (my husband was eating his breakfast) and said if HE didn't drive a carload of kids to school, they'd all he late. Then my husband gave her a lecture on "how it would do them all good to walk, and the school was only nine blocks away, and that she and the other mothers in our neighborhood were spoiling the kids rotten by chaufforing them a distance that could be walked in 15 minutes, blah, blah, blah." Well, that's not what, she came over for, so t told him to shut his mouth and I drove the kids to school in our pick-up truck. My husband said I should have taken his side. Who was wrong?

WE THE WOMEN Gain Worth-WhUe Kespeet By RUTH MI I, LETT The generally accepted picture of women's organizations is a source of amusement to most men. And because women don't, want to seem ridiculous to their husbands, they often refuse to take on real and worthwhile projects outside the home. The fact is that most husbands are tnuchingly proud of [ and you'll see respect replace their wives if they take on; amused tolerance on 5 'onr bus- activities which will benefit ! band's face when you tell him their children or community. ] what you are doing.
