CHEESE MAKES GOOD MAIN
DISH, SAYS CAROLINE COE
The "cheese appetite" is usually at
its sharpest in summer the cheese
flavor seems to appeal to the palate
fagged by heavy winter diet, so either
as a substitute for meat or as a side
dish cheese should have a place on
the table these days.
There's plenty of nutrition in
cheese a larger percentage of fat
than there is in an expensive beef
steak, and the price of cheese is never
high enough to worry any one. With
vegetables and juicy fruits to offset
its fatty substance it makes a very
good "main dish" for dinner.
Cut 1 pound of cheese into small
pieces and put into saucepan with y2
cup of sweet cream, 1 tablespoonful
of French mustard, 1 saltspoon of
salt and 1 teaspoon of butter. Melt
slowly over slow fire. Turn over
toasted bread and serve at once.

just been officially so designated by
the International Dancing Masters'
ass'n in their convention in San

dance devotees in the United States.
Frank H. Norman of Montreal,
Can., former head of the Dancing
Masters' ass'n, is the creator of the
new national dance, and ne gives the
following description of it:
"The Balboa is a dance designed
to combine the old idea of straight
dancing with the modern idea of new
steps. It harmonizes the best of the
Did and the new in a combination of
the one-step with the two-step.
"It starts with a one-step with an
arch turn, followed by maxixe two
step and eight waltz steps."
In breaking Into the arch turn from
the one-step, the couple takes four
steps backward, the man leading with
his left foot Then the man steps
back with the right foot and makes a
slow half turn, the girl taking three
short running steps around him as
he does so.
In the maxixe two-step, which fol
lows the arch turn, tae couple as
sumes regular dance -position, except
that they half turn forward. They
then move forward, using the old
fashioned two-step, accentuated by
pointing the heels (the man's left
heel and the girl's right) and sway
ing sideways from the waist with
It's new, it's pretty, it has swing
to it; it's not vulgar, it's easy to learn,
it's fun to dance it's the Balboa,
the new national dance.
