ffi& THE MORNING AVALANCHE ByJvlargaret Turner /VFTER having cooked break. A*-fast and sent her husband to work and son to school on time the other day, a friend told us she happened to pass by a mirror 'and after a glance, groaned: "I wonder if I am as old as I look this morning or if I look as old as I am!" : * * * HAS POPLAR TREES A READER telephones she has •**six large poplar trees she : would like to give away, as they are sapping the strength from her flowers and shrubs. If you would like to have them call her at 7825 sometime during the morning. » * * OPEN FORUM rr\HE Consumers group of the •*• American Association of University Women is sponsoring an open forum Monday night in room 102 of the Tech home economics building. Miss Ellen Kleppe will discuss "Meat Substitutes and Meat Extenders." All Lubbock women who are interested are invited to attend, It was announced. It's generally agreed that women can do much to help in the emergency if they use ingenuity •m planning and cooking their meals. You may be baffled when you think of the customary dishes you may have to learn to do without. A forum such as is scheduled for Monday night is planned with these problems in mind. The group is anxious for town women to attend. * • * LOST A FIVER WHEN Mrs. Robin Clack, teach"'• er of Ropseville. was here for the teachers conference Friday she lost a five dollar bill. ^Vhen she got out of her car the . bill blew out of her lap and in front of two men who picked it up. Mrs. Clack did not realize she had lost the bill at the time but her husband saw the men pick the bill up. She hopes that {he men who thought the bills were money from heaven will read of It here and return the money to her. * * * BETTER TAKE CARE "CWMILIES fortunate enough to -L own electric washing machines had better take good care of them, for production of war equipment has curtailed the supply of new washers. Mrs. Bernice Claytor, extension service specialist, offers suggestions on making the machine last longer and serve more efficientlv. Here are some of them: Keep the washing machine clean. Rinse and drain it well, wipe out any lint and dry the machine inside and out. To" keep the inside frame from rusting, if It Is made of steel or iron, rub it occasionally -with a little oil. If the machine is put in the open, cover it to provide extra protection. It Is especially necessary to take care of the rubber rolls in the wringer now that rubber is scarce, Mrs. Claytor warns. She cautions against stalling or strain- Ing the wringer by putting too much clothing through at one time. Never use harsh scouring powder on any part of the machine especially the inside, is her final ~ord. New fuel and oil restrictions are expected to lay up 82.000 new motor vehicles in New South Wales.

Dial 2-99SO Lubbock, Texas, Saturday, Morc'h 21, 1942 4343 For The Avalanche-Journal Lubbock Housewives Wi Use Ingenuity In Substituti & —— ^»^ / at Recipes From First War Being Used As a part of her program in National Defense, the housewife o£ Lubbock is making a collection of the eggless, butterless, milkless and sugarless cake receipes from World War No. 1, and more than that, she's using her own inge- IM . nuity for subs'.ituting ingredients to that she does have for those that are needed in the war program. As an aid for her cooking, the following recipes have been sent out from the home demonstration office in Lubbock. There are advantages and disadvantages in using substitutes when making cakes. Cake standards will be changed somewhat because syrups have a tendency to make cakes heavier than sugar, but they stay moist longer which is an advantage. Spice cakes, and gingerbread will take the place of the plain layer cakes served in the past. Corn syrup is half as sweet as sugar. When using it in beverages, puddings, custards, and sauces in place of sugar, the other liquid must be reduced one-fourth. Substitute measure for measure in standard muffin, plain cakes, and drop cookies recipes and reduce the liquid one-third. Honey has the same sweetness as sugar, so use cup for cup. For cakes rising medium thick honey for all the sugar in the receipe, reduce the liquid one-half. If using one-half sugar and one-half honey, reduce the liquid one- fourth. The following recipes are substituting syrup and honey in place of sugar.
