OW TO MAKE DESSERTS
WHEN SUGAR IS SCARCE
If you are wise you will not use
your last bit of sugar, trusting to get
more when the present supply is
gone, but will avoid the possibility of
totally sugarless days by making your
small supply go as far as possible.
This is the advice of home-economics
specialists in the United States De
partment of Agriculture.
Turn to your war-conservation cook
books and refresh your memory on
ways to use the sugar substitutes.
You will find many recipes for cakes,
but most of them were built to save
wheat as well as agar. We have this
cause for rejoicing at least: Though
must cut down our use of sugar. We
still have wheat for cake making and
our old stand-bys in time of sugar
stringency-molasses, corn sirup, and
honey-a---re still procurable.
The cakes made with sirup are not
just like those made with sugar. In
most cases they are less sweet. They
do fill an emergency need for cake,
however. The following recipes use
*-,.but little sugar.
1-4 cup fat, 3 tablespoons sugar,
(brown or white.) 2 eggs, 1 cup corn
sirup, 2 squares melted chocolate.
1-2 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla,

baking powder, 1-4 teaspoon salt.
Cream the fat and sugar, add the
egg yolks, sirup, and molted chocolate,
and beat well. Sift the dry ingredie
nts together and add alternately with
the milk. Add vanilla and fold in the
stiffly beaten whites. Bake in loaf
of or layers in a moderate oven.
For frosting-cook one-half cup
corn sirup until it forms a long thread
when dropped from a spoon. Pour
over the stiffly beaten whites of two
eggs and beat until thick enough to

BACON SALE CLOSES
Charleston, Nov. 30.-Announce
ment was made at the army retail
store offices today that orders had
been received withdrawing bacon
from sale, although no explanation
for these orders was given. Bacon has
proved one of the most popular ar
ticles handled by the food store,
which serves this state and North
Carolina as well as Charleston, and
considerable interest is attached to
the stopping of its sale. Only 10
(lays yet remain for parcel post or
ders, no more being filled, for a time,
after December 10. Sales in this ter
ritory by the government stores since
September 25 have passed the $400,

$500,000 by Christmas, in spite of the
curtailment of parcel post business

"I had been through a very severe
