Report to the Housewife
This week saw many of the Na
tion's children's trudging back to
school which, likewise, means
mothers are back in the business of
packing lunch boxes.
As every mother knows a good
school lunch is of the greatest im
portance; children grow stronger
and learn faster when they have a
well-prepared, well-balanced, appe
tizing meal at noon. It’s a job, I
know, to be thinking up something
different all the time because you
have to keep in mind not only what
little Johnny likes to eat but also
what Johnny should eat. Don’t
neglect to tuck in some fresh fruit
along with his milk, sandwiches
and crisp vegetable. Apples, pears,
oranges and peaches are all easy
for a small child to manage.
The summer Ram bos (good for
eating as well as cooking', California
Bartlett pears, West Virginia
peaches. California Valencias and
a variety of grapes are the best
fruits of the moment, especially for
putting in lunch boxes. California
grapefruit is coming in, not good
for hand eating but fine for break
fast or to put in salads.
The second crop of tomatoes are
on the market, the quality is very
good. The hot weather didn’t do as
much damage as was at first feared.
The green stuff—all the salad greens
and cooking greens—didn’t fare as
well, however. The supply of these
vegetables is very short right now
and probably will continue so until
cooler weather. You’ll still find
there are quite a few watermelons
to be had. They are a good bit.
smaller than the ones we were get -
ting earlier fh the season, but the
quality is just as good.
The first of the new crop of
Maryland sweet potatoes made their
appearance this past week, one ship- !
ment of cauliflower arrived, other!
vegetables in good supply include
lima beans, celery, corn, cucumbers,!
eggplant, onions, peppers, squash
end white potatoes.
The meat items to watch for this
week end will be frying chickens,
chuck roasts, beef liver, cooked hard
shell crabs, crab meat and, of course,
with the “R” months here again,
oysters are once more on your list
of sea foods.
Here's an interesting tip from!
the Fishery Council you might like !
to file away for further use: How;
to serve oysters on the half shell j
without having to open them or
have them opened for you. It’s
beautifully simple. Get a dozen
oysters in the shell at your favorite
fish market. Have the dealer open
them. Take the shells along with
you. Clean the shells and add them
to your stock of dishes. Then when
you want oysters again, buy a small!
container of shucked oyster meats
and serve them on the half shell in
the “oyster" dishes.

Imagine what life would be like in
the United States of America with
out modern packaging and refriger
ation? To get a faint idea, take
a look at butter. We like it fresh
and delicately flavored, but, in India
where they call it “ghi,” it isn't but
ter as we know it, it's butter boiled.
Among the nomadic tribes of Asia
the butter comes in curds. Lacking
refrigeration these tribes process
their butter into curds, leave them
in the sun to dry so that they get a
substance hard as leather that keeps
indefinitely. ... To whip evapor

licked up The Star and read your
omments concerning telephone so
lciting. I was a little surprised
Ince, of the few such calls I have
poeiveri T have found that the Der
sons making the calls were on the 1
whole more courteous and took con
siderably less time than the sales
persons who came to my door. Hence,
my first thought was that of the
two methods I would prefer the
telephone soliciting.
My pet telephone peeve, however,
Is that of being interrupted when
feeding children or in the midst of
any one of my numerous daily tasks
to answer the telephone and find
the person calling has dialed the
wrong number. This happens far
too often not to be harassing in our
case—sometimes two or three times
a day, and often as late as midnight.
A little more care in dialing num
bers would eliminate so much of
this, and I do think we could prac
tice being a little more careful in ;
this respect.

I use an extension cord and set the
washer on a towel in an upholstered
chair or on the couoh. This solution
depends on room arrangement of
course, but will not harm the furni
ture in any way. The towel protects
the furniture and the vibration is
absorbed through the upholstery.
Have only highest praise for this
make of small washer. Although
more expensive than some other
small types on the market, it is well
worth the extra money in the long
run due to its more efficient wash
ing and drying action.

for keeping a white lattice folding

Here is a plea—if you are lucky
enough to have a pet or pets, make
sure they have plenty of fresh, clean
water available. They can’t ask for
it and thirst is torture this weather.
(f rom Mrs. m. d., wasnmgiun./
To Mrs. W. H. C. My ingenious
husband devised a completely sat
isfactory arrangement in our bath
tub for our small washer. He started
with an old breadboard which he
placed across the tub. It wedged
down a few inches from the top.
That gave him his idea. He pro
ceeded to make a trough affair
which wedges down about two or
three inches into the tub. He tacked
a synthetic rubber material about
a quarter of an inch thick to the
slanting ends where it fits into the
tub, which makes it completely
stationary. It has sides which keeps
the machine in place. To finish it
off, I have a piece of the rubber
material for the machine to set on
which helps to absorb vibration.
Any water spilled seeps through to
the tub. It is indeed an answer to
my laundry needs and fun to use.
You will find very little vibration
if you will stop the machine and
rearrange your clothes for better
One word of caution. My machine
leaked grease at the bottom. The
repair man said it was merely over
flow from being tipped and may
occur several times. So I find it
advisable to place a newspaper di
rectly under it at all times.
(From Mrs. R. C. E., Arlington.)
In reply to Mrs. W. H. C., Wash
ington I have heard others remark
on the vibration of their small spin
ner type washer and have been able
to suggest something that may help
you, too. First of all, when you put
the clothes in to spin be very care
ful not to overload the basket (one
sheet, or two bathtowels, or two
wash dresses is an ample load at
this stage*. Then arrange the gar
ments evenly distributing the weight
equally on all sides of the basket.
I have found it helpful, too, not to
pack the clothes down in the basket
but fluff them up to allow some air
spaces. My mother uses a large
spinner machine of another make
and found all these suggestions very
important in keeping her machine
steady while whirling, and I’ve
found them equally helpful in using
on a table in the utility room.
I have nothing but praise for th
cleaning ability and convenience o
my washer and hope these few sug
gestions may be of help to you.
I certainly enjoy the RCH am
find it helpful and entertaining.
(From Mrs. R. F. R., Washington.)
This is in answer to Mrs. W. H. C
regarding her small spinner-typ
washing machine. I, too, own thi
type of machine and had the sam
difficulties as she had; as to wher
to place the machine while in us
and how to overcome the excessiv
vibrations while spin-drying. I hav
e owned my machine since Januar;
* and have spent much of this tim
1 finding a place to put it during th
* washing process. I tried and
‘ guess you have also, setting th
s machine on practically every piec
s of furiture in the house and to n
■ avail. I explained my predicamen
s to my husband and he came up wit!
1 a wonderful solution.
^ First, purchase in any departmen
1 store, a fill drain hose attachmem
? Instructions for the operation o
this attachment are on the packagi
. Secondly, attach the long hose c
» the attachment to the drain hos
of the washer. This may be done i:
p a few moments by means of a hous
u coupling, which may be had for
few cents in any hardware ston
p i If your faucet is not of the threat
I type, it wm De necessary to aiso
purchase an adapter. This Is avail
able at the department store. With
the attachment, which I have sug
gested, it is possible to fill and drain
the washer while it sits on the floor,
even while spinning. The total cost
of this apparatus will cost you about
$3, including the coupling and
I suggest you turn the job of pur
chasing and installing of this ap
paratus over to your husband. I be
lieve this job requires a man’s me
chanical ability.
To alleviate vibrations while spin
ning the clothes dry: Now that the
machine has been placed on the
floor while it is operating, this will
decrease the vibrations some. The
main cause for the machine not re
maining still, is the uneven distribu
tion of clothes in washer. If you
will look inside of the washer you
will find the agitator is divided into
three parts. Make sure that about
the same weight of clothes is in each
section of the inner tub. This will
create an even balance on all sides
when the spinner is in motion.
If you have any further questions
to ask you may call me at Dupont

In regard to F. H.’s inquiry about
geraniums, I used to grow a lot of
them. I started slips in soil (not

spoon ammonia to a quart of water.
Use plain water the rest of the
time. They bloomed from the last

(From Mrs. M. B. B., Riva, Md.)
To J. S„ Washington. To remove
musty odor, leave your beds un
made as long as possible on sunny
days. Put bed pillows, chair and
sofa pillows out In the sun. You
must have some sun on porch or
steps or yard.
If not, then have trees and bushes
cut away.
I live at the beach and the first
summer the musty odor was terrible.
W« had several large tall trees re

odor at all this season.

The Chef Says—
A L. .U IUa ! a# ahiaa^ UiiWav w 'i f Va /iaIiJ arnAMitii*
A very nice little book for the
gourmet has just reached my desk,
"The Lejon Cook Book,” which con
tains a number of excellent recipes
in which wines are used in cooking.
With very good American wines
appearing in ever Increasing quan
tities, many cooks like to experiment
with their use in dishes—a custom
traditional in the finest European
cooking. It is said that the cooking
removes the alcoholic content of the
wine, brandy or what have you,
leaving only the delicate and inter
esting flavor.
There is one recipe In the book
that made me positively homesick
for Joseph's, famed Paris restaurant,
where Joseph himself prepares spe
cial dishes right in the middle of;
the small dining room, watched by
fascinated eyes. This may not be
exactly like Joseph’s "lobster flam
bee” but it is mighty close.
Get lobster tails for this—no use
wasting your money on the expen
sive claw type.
Cook the tails in a large pot
of freshly boiling, well-salted water:
of sweet butter, with cold asparagus
vinaigrette on separate plates.
Although we do get apples all the
year around, somehow September
always seems the beginning of the
apple season to me. I suppose this
rather muzzy idea stems from those
long ago days when raiding Grand
pa's orchard was one of my chief
joys in life—especially when the
russets ripened.
Anyhow, to get down to things,
let's celebrate the advent of Sep
tember with a recipe for Dutch
Apple Cake.
Mix and sift 2 cups flour with 3
teaspoons baking powder and >4
teaspoon salt. Work in 3 table
spoons butter and add about % cup
of milk and a well-beaten egg. Mix
quickly. Spread the dough In a
shallow baking pan.
Have ready, cored, peeled and
quartered about 4 nice Arm apples.
The quarters should be drizzled
with lemon Juice to keep them
white. Now, mix a cup of sour
cream with 2 tablespoons sugar,
cinnamon and ginger to taste and
dip the apple quarters quickly into
this. Arrange the quarters in
___AW. J._U
lor 10 to 15 minutes, depending on
the size. Remove them from the
kettle and let them cool until easy
to handle. Then cut them in slices
about an eighth of an inch thick.
Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a pan
andjtdd 3 or 4 scallions or & couple
of small onions, minced fine, if you
can’t get the scallions. Saute these
until transparent and then blend in
ft tablespoon of curry powder. When
all is mixed thoroughly, add a cup
of cream—and keep stirring con
stantly. Do not let the mixture
boil. Just let the cream heat
through and then set aside.
In another pan, melt just enough
butter to heat the pieces of lobster ■
meat. Put in the lobster meat and
when good and hot, pour over it 3
ounces of brandy. Take the pan from
the fire and light the brandy with
a match. Flame for about 30 seconds.
Arrange the pieces of lobster meat
on a hot platter and pour the sauce
from the other pan over them. Be
sure the sauce is still good and hot.
At Joseph’s this would be served
with crusty French bread and curls

in firmly. Sprinkle with a little
more sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Bake in a hot oven for about 30
minutes and then serve hot with
And instead of the usual apple
sauce with pork or fried apple
rings with sausage from breakfast,
try these glazed broiled apples:
Try and get apples the same size,
without blemishes. Wash them, core
them and then peel them only half
way down from the top. Put them
close together in a shallow pan and
fill the core cavities with sugar,
cinnamon and a whiff of cloves.
Pill the pan with cold water to
within half of the depth of the ap
ples. Bake for an hour in the broil
ing oven, slowly, about 4 inches be
low' the flame. When almost soft,
start basting with the pan liquid,
until the apples are lightly brown,
with a glossy covering. Serve hot
arranged around the pork roast.
Recipe Roundup
When meat prices are high, we
are forced to turn to the less ex
pensive and more unusual meats
available. And we also turn to those
thrifty Old World nations who knew ;
how to make the best of every scrap •
that came to their cooking pot.
Take, for example, ROAST LAMB :
Buy four shanks of lamb and :
wash them well. Let them stand in :
fresh water for 15 or 20 minutes. !
Then take them out and dry them '
carefully. Put them in a roasting
pan and add two quartered to
m a toes, one teaspoon salt and a
bit of cayenne. Cook for half an
hour in a medium overv, then turn
the meat over and cook 30 minutes
Chuck in two potatoes, cut in
pieces, and roast with the lamb;
shanks for another 30 minute*.;
Then turn the works over again
and cook half an hour longer. (To-!
tal cooking time two hours.)
Serve with juices from the pan
as gravy. Pried eggplant is won
derful with this.
To my mind, one of the most sat- (

use potatoes that have been baked
>nly partially—not boiled. (You will l
have peeled them before baking, of t

with a chopping knife.
Put them in a pan with salt, pep
>er and a nice lump of butter. Then
idd one-half cup cream for every
wo potatoes in the pot and let
ill cook slowly over a verjrlow flame
rntil the potatoes have absorbed
ilmost every bit of the cream. Sea
on with more salt and fresh black
