And while you're about it you might, as well use a nutritious recipe. This one includes wheat germ, a rich source of protein and an exceptionally valuable source of other essential nutrients. We have two other good reasons for strongly recommending this rule. The cookies made from it taste delicious — the grownups at our house enjoyed them as much as our small visitors. And this dough is delightfully manageable. You'll find it quick, easy and satisfying to roll out. Youngsters especially want gingerbread men cut from the dough, and cutters of this sort are widely available. Or you can cut out. your own pattern from cardboard. After baking, the gingerbread men may be sugar frosting.

STORE POISONS SAFELY BV POLLY CRAMER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. DEAR POLLY—My mom is an avid gardener and one of her best tricks is to put rose dust and other powdered insecticides in big old salt and pepper shakers marked "POISON" and she prints the name of the contents on the side. When she is ready to use one, she just shakes the desired amount on the plant. This keeps her hands clean and much safer-A READER. GIRLS—If you have no really big fthaker*. bole* could be. punched in the top ot any big jar with a screw-on top. "POISON" could be written on with red nail polish and paste-on labels used for Ihe brand names. Thin would doubtIf is be more economical as there would be less waste when applying. But be sure to keep all garden and other poison under lock and key. —POLLY.
