A distinctly new message is carried in certain prints for daytime wear In that their motifs are in a single color and so placed as to give an impression as being entirely detached from eacl, other--a leaf here, a single blossom there or if conventional, triangles. squares, dots and the like spaced far apart. For this type black or navy As every woman knows, there's nothing in the costume realm to equal a frock of any print when it comes to toning up the complexion, adding a new sparkle to the eye and impart- lng in general that much-coveted look of being young. In fact in the pi- quant, colorful patterned prints which have been fashion's idol year in and year out, the fair sex sems to have discovered the very fountain of youth• And so the lure of prints abides with us, and this season the world of fashion seems to have grown moe print-conscious than ever. In the new collections, no matter how tempera- mental one may be, there's a print for every mood. They run the whole gamut of emotions. That up-and-going spirit which ex- Ists during the practical busy hours of the day is reflected in sprightly tail- ored-looking prints whose tiny pat- terns on dark backgrounds are Just the thing to wear about town, in the office, the schoolroom and for travel. For sports, the new plaids, stripes and checks are frankly bizarre and flam- boyant. Comes eventide, when milady dines and dances the hours away in 'ravishing, filmy flowery chiffons whose flowing draperies sway to the strains of sweet music under glamor- on white, or vice versa, achieve the startling contrast which Is so out- standing on the present style program. In the picture to the right Sue Carol, who as a Radio Pictures featured play- er, Is winning fame and fortune be* cause of the winsomeness of her viva- cious youth, shows what a college girl will wear for afternoon. It is a flow- ered chiffon in pastel shades with a blue background. To the left, Betty Compson, also a Radio Pictures star player, poses in a flowered chiffon afternoon dress in pastel shades on a yellow background. ((, 1931. VCestern Newspaper Union.) ! Mer'ngue Adds Much l : to Dessert In some ways a cream pie is easier to make than a custard pie. The shell is baked first, the filling is made in the double boiler, and then a meringue is spread over the top and nicely browned. For "company" purposes a dessert with a meringue seems a lit- tle more attractive than Just plain pie. The bureau of home economics of the United States Department of Agricul- ture furnishes the recipe. I pint milk or thin 2 eggs cream 2 tbs, butter if 4 tbs. flour milk is used % cup sugar  tsp. vanilla tsp. salt Pastry Heat the milk or cream in a double boiler. Mix the flour, sugar, and salt thoroughly. Pour some of the hot liquid into this, mix well, and return to the double boiler. Stir until thick- ened, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Beat well. Pour some of this mixture into tile beaten egg yolks, and add to tile rest of the mixture with the but- ter and vanilla. Pour into a baked pie crust and let stand for a few minutes. In the meantime make a meringue from the beaten egg whites four tablespoonfuls sugar and a few grains of salt and a drop or two of vanilla. Spread over the pie filling to the edge of the crust and bake in a very moderate oven (325 degrees Fahrenheit) for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. To make a banana cream pie, add sliced bananas to the custard mixture after it is cooked, cover with the meringue and bake in the usual way. !:::::::..:::::::::::::::::::::.::::::::::::::::::::;::::::..::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::.::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::i {!

"A housewife with limited budget should be enabled, under the terms of the McNary-Mapes amendment to the food and drugs act, to buy a substand- ard product within the reach of her pocketbook which will carry the nutri- tive if not the esthetic value of standard canned foods--provided she reads intelligently the labeling re* quired by the amendment to appear on the product," said Dr. P.

Probably no single article of food can be utilized by the housewife in a greater number of dishes than eggs. Eggs preserved in waterglass can be used with good results for all pur- poses in cooking and for the table. When such eggs are to be boiled, a small hole should be made with a pin in the shell at the large end, before putting them in the water. This is done to allow the air in the egg to excape when the egg is heated, and so prevent cracking. Only very fresh eggs, preferably from one to three days old, should be preserved. If possible the eggs should be infertile. Under no circumstances should badly soiled eggs be used. Dirty eggs will spoii, and if they are washed the protective coating which prevents spoiling is removed• Cracked eggs should never be put down in waterglass. Even minute cracks may cause spoilage and contamination of the other eggs in the Jar. It is a wise precaution to examine every egg by candling it before using. Usually a few eggs are put down In waterglass at a time, whenever they are not needed for immediate con- sumption. A five-gallon Crock, there- fore, is a good size to use for the pur- pose. It should be set wherever it is to be kept before any eggs are put in, as it would be difficult to move it without endangering the eggs, later on. A five-gallon jar will be large enough to hold 15 dozen eggs and still permit at least two inches of tim waterglass solution to stand over the tops of the eggs. The United States Department of Agriculture gives the following direc- tions for tlle preparation of the crock and the preserving solution: First clean the crock tlmroughty. Scald It and allow it to dry. Heat a quantity of water to the boiling point and allow it to cool. When it is cool, measure out nine gallons of water, and add one quart of sodium silicate, or waterglass, which can be bought in most drug stores. Mix well. Eggs may now be put into the solution whenever there are any extra ones. l(Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.)--WNU Service. i If you have chickens it is quite prob- able that more eggs will be laid dur- Ing the spring and early summer than the family can use. Some of these surplus eggs can be saved by putting !them down in waterglass, so fis to have more available for the winter months when the hens do not lay so ell. Fresh eggs properly preserved Putting Eggs Down in Watergla 8olution. may be kept in good condition for cooking purposes for elght to twelve months. Eggs are an Importunt addition to the diet at all times. For growing children they are so important that nutrition specialists recommend an egg every day or every other day for children over two years of age. For younger children the egg yolk only is recommended. The white part of the egg is aimost at pure watery solution of certain pro- teins of high value for body building and maintenance. The yolk of the egg is rich in preteP.s, fat, and corn, pounds of phosphorus and iron in forms especially adapted for eonyer- •lon into body tissue. The yolk also furnishes some calcium, ncede6 for stand 24 hours, turning several times.

Put the squares on small wooden skewers, us- ing five or six pieces, alternating the veal and pork.

"When the President, on July 8, 1930, signed the McNary-Maes amend- ment to the food and drugs act, the food and drug administration was as- signed a task of tremendous magni- tude," said Doctor Dunbar. "The ad- ministration recoghized the merits of this legislation, however, and was will- ing to assume the added burden of enforcing it. The administration be- lieved that the measure offered a ma- teriaIly increased protection to the American consumer of canned foods and likewise offered a protection to canners against the damaging com- petition of low-grade products. This initial conviction of the administra- tion has not changed. "Th.e amendment Is remarkable as a pi.ce of legislation for two reasons," I sald Doctor Dunbar. "It is the first step taken by congress in .the direction of granting the secretary of agricul- ture formal authority to make and promulgate Iegal standards for food products. Second, it is an outstanding example of a vdluntary imposition, by a great industry upon itself, of addi- tional and drastic legislative require- ments, The amendment was enacted solely through the initiative and effort of the canning industry. "I am afraid," declared the speak- er, "that 1 cannot accord the canning industry a philanthropic or wholly un- , selfish interest in the welfare of the American consumer a the only mo- tive for seeking this legislation. On the contrary, the canning industry recognized in a farsighted way the need for Just such IegisIation if the industry itself is to prosper. That recognition grew from the apprecia- , tion of the fact that t;he consumer's best interests are paralIet with those I of the business.
