I L_ And All Things Nice Make Xmas Merry .?..::!: :" .. :'" Traditional holiday cookies and puddings can still appear in this year's celebrations. Make them sim- pler by using recipes in today's eol- ilmn. Eyes bright and shining, hearts full of the Christmas spirit and won- drous expectation u t ing to disappoint these even this holiday season! There are many foods to please during holiday time and in for- mer years our on- ly worry was to have the time to make all the puddings and cakes we wanted. Now, we have not only the time element to consider, but also the problem of rationed goods, prices, and time, too. For these reasons, today's recipes have been designed to fit all these require- ments. Look them over, homemak- ers, and you'll find they quite fill the bill: Christmas Pudding. (Serves 12) cup sugar cup butter or margarine 1 egg 1 cup molasses 1 cup sour milk 1 teaspoon soda, dissolved in sour milk 3 cups flour teaspoon cinnamon teaspoon cloves bb teaspoon nutmeg 1 cup chopped raisins cup currants or seedless raisins cup ground citron cup candied cherriea 1 teaspoon vanilla Cream sugar and butter or mar- garine. Add egg, slightly beaten. Add spices to flour. Add molasses, milk and flour alternately, a little at a time, blending well. Add fruit and vanilla. Pour into two greased 1-quart pudding molds. Cover and steam for 3 hours. Serve with hard or foamy sauce. If you want to splurge a bit and can afford it, here is an old-fash- ioned, real English plum pudding: English Plum Pudding. (Serves 12) cup sifted cake flour 1 tea#peon salt sA teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon cinnamon teaspoon nutmeg teaspoon mace pound raisins, chopped pound dried currants, chopped pound citron, chopped b pound lemon peel, chopped pound orange peel, chopped pound blanched almonds, chopped b cup fine bread crumbs A cup hot milk pound brown sugar 5 eggs, separated pound suet, chopped IA cup fruit juice (any kind) glass currant jelly Lynn Says The Score Card: Crop esti- mates jumped on white potatoes making more available for civil- Jan use. You are urged to buy them by bushel instead of by the pound. Watch for changes in point and price values. They are an indi- cation of how you can guide your food budget. Figs have gone up in price, grapes down. Prunes and raisins are back on the ration list because there are no longer large stocks of these available. Crabmeat is up in price as are some of the cheeses. Ouide your use of milk care- fully as your dealer is now ra- tioned. This is being tried be- cause it would be difficult to ra- tion milk to the consumer by points. Save every bit of fat that you can and turn it in to your butch- er. A tablespoon a day will help to bring your boy back sooner.

GOD'S GREAT LOVE AND HIS GIFT LESSON TEXT--Matthew 2:1-12. GOLDEN TEXT--For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son. that whosoever believeth in Him 'should not perish, but have everlasting life.--John 3:16. Christmas brings us all back to the Christ-child in Bethlehem, and we are reminded anew of our Lord's coming into the world to be the Re- deemer. For,the babe of Bethle- hem is the Christ of the cross, of the resurrection, and the coming King. "God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son" in what was the world's greatest love gift. But the Word does not stop there. We must do something about God's gift. We read, "That whosoever be- lieveth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3: 16). The story of the coming of the Wise Men to seek the One who had been "born King of the Jews" re- veals several attitudes toward Christ which find their counterpart 'in our day. I. Expectancy (vv. 1, 2). These men of another race were familiar with the Jewish Scriptures and knew that the Messiah was to come. Many others, including the religious leaders of the Jews, had the same information. But these men of the East differed in that they looked for His coming with keen desire and expectancy. One wonders if we have not be- come so familiar with the story of Christmas that we, like the Jews, have a dead knowledge without ex- pectant faith. We need to awaken and look to God for new grace and strength for these days. lI. Fear (vv. 3, 7, 8, 12). Herod was a capable, ruthless, un- godly ruler who feared only that someone would take his power from him. He was so determined that this should not happen, that he killed many members of his own family for whom he otherwise had apparent affection. When he heard that Jesus, who was the real King of the Jews, had been born, he feared, and laid crafty plans to destroy Him. God saw to it that his purpose was not carried out. There are those of our time who fear the coming of Jesus, because they will not have Him to rule over their lives. They love their selfish ways, and their sinful pleasures; and when they face the question of what they will do with Jesus (and face it they must!), they have only fear and hatred in their hearts. III. Indifference (vv. 4-6). When the Wise Men came to Je- rusalem to inquire where the Christ was to be born, they received an immediate answer--in Bethlehem. That was clearly foretold in Micah 5:2. The priests and scribes knew all about it, but their knowledge did not move them to action. They told the Magi where to go, but they did not go themselves. How sad it is to see the indiffer- ence of our day to the claims of Christ. There are many who think that simply because they do not hate the church, or the Bible, or do not fight against it, they are guilt- less. How wrong they are will ap- pear to them if they will read Mat- thew 11:23,,24 and recall that the sin of Capernaum was only indif- ference. Wake up, careless one, and change your indifference to love and faith, lest you too be eternally lost. IV. JoY (vv. 9, 10). These earnest seekers for the Christ-child were full of joy even before they saw Him. "When they saw the star," and knew that God was indeed leading them, their hearts leaped within them as "they rejoiced with exceeding great joy." Christmas is the time when there should be real joy in our hearts. It is not enough to be "merry" or "happy." In fact, many thousands could not possibly find anything to be happy about this year. Happiness depends on what hap- pens, but joy is the gift of God to His children, which is so deep down in their beings that circumstances cannot change it. We may have real, satisfying Christmas joy. V. Worship (v. 11). When they saw Christ, they wor- shiped. Have" we been as wise as they were? Then they made gifts, showing that their worship had that reality which made them ready to sacrifice for Him. Have we done anything this Christmas to show our joy and gratitude for the redemp- tion we have in Christ? The writer of these lines (which will reach you just before Christ- mas) wants to wish you and yours a very blessed Christmas, and to assure you that he is praying for you that regardless of circumstances the joy of the Lord may fill your soul. Christ has come. He is with us now by faith. He will come again to reign. The Child of Bethlehem's manger is our Great Saviour and Glorious King. Rejoice in Him! FIRST00AID AILr0000i00I00USE Roger B. Wh:ltman--WNU Features. STORAGE IN A BARN Question: Do you think an oil- stove, oil range, rugs and furniture could be stored in a well-cared-for barn without any harm coming to them? Should anything be done be- side covering the things with heavy quilts? Answer: A barn is not the best place in which to store furniture. But if it is the only available place, put the furniture, etc., high off the floor, preferably in the hayloft, if there is one. Wax the wood parts of the furniture, and cover well to protect it from dust. The unpainted parts of the stove and heater should be given a coating of light oil to re- tard rusting. Rugs should be cleaned, well sprinkled with anti- moth preparations and tightly sealed in strong paper. Odor of Dampness Question: Is there any way to get the smell of dampness out of a wooden clapboard house? The odo seems to rise from the cellar, al- though the cellar seems to be per- fectly dry. The house was closed for three months while we were away. There was a slight mildew on the books when we returned; this was wiped off but the odor per- sists. Answer: If the odor comes from the cellar, scrub all the walls, posts and floor with a hot washing-soda solution--about a cupful in a pail of water. Then rinse with clear wa- ter. Ventilate the cellar well, and sprinkle generous quantities of chlor- ide of lime around the edges of the floor. All mildewed books and fur- niture should be given a" thorough airing outdoors in the sun. With your heating plant going, the damp- ness and odor ought to dry up and disappear very soon. It also would help to place several pounds of cal- cium chloride in a wire basket, standing it on a pail to absorb the moisture from the air. VERY DRY HOUSE AIR Question: Would it be beneficial to keep the three upstairs bathtubs full of water to increase the humid- ity in the very dry atmosphere of our house? Answer: Little benefit would be derived by filling the tubs. Water must be hot so that the vapor rising from it could be easily absorbed by the air, or else the water must be broken up by some mechanical force into fine misty particles for easy absorption. at at at Rusty Trunk Question: How can I remove rust from the outside metal of a trunk? Answer: Rub with fine steel wool or sandpaper and either kerosene or a rust-removing liquid tat you can get at an automobile supply store. After cleaning, wipe with benzine to take off all traces of the oil, being very careful of fire. You then can refinish with spar var- nish; or, if you want color, use a quick-drying enamel. at $ at Mending Earthenware Vase Question: What kind o1 cement could I use to mend a large earthen- ware vase used in a garden and subject to all kinds of weather? Answer: An excellent cement is made by mixing equal parts of lith- arge and powdered red lead, then adding glycerin to make a paste. This is slow drying, but dries very hard. at at at Rusty Oil Stoves Question: I have several oil heat- ers that have become quite rusty, but otherwise are usable. What type paint could I use to repaint them. , Answer: First, clean off the rust with steel wool and then wipe off the dust with turpentine. You then can paint the heaters with a black, heat- resisting stovepipe enamel. a $ at Condensation on Windows Question: Every winter I have trouble with condensation on my steel casement windows. Is there any remedy for this condition? Answer: Snug-fitting storm sash is usually a good remedy for con- densation. Frequent ventilation also may help. 8514 Soft Drapery OU'LI never know how much your appearance may be im- proved until you try a dress like this one.

Complaint of Socrates Appears Quite Up-to-Date Here is a complaint about eti- quette that should interest every parent: "The children now love luxury, they have bad manners, contempt for authority, they show disrespect for elders, and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize over their teachers.'* The Greek philosopher Socrates registered the complaint over 2,000 years ago. We parents might as well resign ourselves. 8501 2-10 yrs. Quickly Put On HIS dress is designed so it is easy for little girls to put it --and button it in a jiffy!
