(From Mrs. C. A. R.. Silver Spring.)
To Mrs. H. M. V.. Arlington: I
have the same problem you have
in my family. One of us cannot
eat baking powder or soda. Here
are a few of the recipes that I use.
Cake shortened with oil: Three
eggs, Vi teaspoon salt, Va cup
boiling water, 1 cup sugar, 1 Vi
cups sifted pastry flour, Vi cup
cooking oil, grated yellow rind of
1 lemon. Break the eggs into an
earthenware mixing bowl and set
the bowl in a pan of hot water.
Add the salt to the eggs and beat
the eggs with a rotary egg beater
till they become light and stiff.
Beat the boiling water into the
eggs and beat again until stiff.
Gradually beat in the sugar, add
ing it a little at a time, and beat
ing well between thq additions of
sugar, and until the batter is stiff
and light and nearly fills a l'/i
quart bowl. Beat in the lemon
rind and the oil.
Now comes the most particu
lar part of the making of the
cake—the lolding in of the flour.
It is easy, if care is not taken,
to work out all the air that has
been beaten into the batter, and
the air is what is depended upon
to make the cake light. A flat
'wire whip is the best utensil to
use in folding in the flour. Sift
a little of the flour over the top
of the stiffly beaten batter. Fold
it in by dipping the whip edge
wise down at the side of the bowl
and lifting it up flatwise through
the center. When this flour is
partly folded in, sift on more flour
and fold it in the same way. Con
tinue folding flour in until all the
flour has been used, but do hot
fold a stroke more than is neces
sary to get the flour completely
blended with the batter.
Pour at once into a cake tin
which has a piece of oiled paper
fitted into the bottom. Do not
oil the sides of the tin. Bake
in a moderate oven till a broom
straw run into the cake comes
out clean. When the cake is taken
from the oven, turn it upside
down to cool in the tin. placing
something under the edge of the
tin so that air can circulate un
der it. Then if the cake falls.
It will fall upward and be lighter.
When the cake is cool, it can be
removed from the tin by umning
a knife around the sides of the
By baking this batter in three
cake tins it can be used for a
layer cake. It will not be neces
sary to flt oiled paper to the
bottom of the tins. Instead, oil
the tins, then sprinkle them with
flour. This batter may also be
baked in the form of cup cakes,
oiling the tins and sprinkling
them with flour to prevent the
cake from sticking to them.
This cake is really easy to make.
My family loves it.
Two-egg eake: This is nice for
strawberry shortcake. Two eggs,
V4 teaspoon salt. Vi cup boiling
water, % cup sugar. 1 Va cups sift
ed pastry flour. Grated yellow
part of the rind of 1 lemon. Fol
low mixing instructions above.
Hoe Cake: One cup.cornmeal,
1 tablespoon pastry flour, 1 cup
boiling water, y4 cup oil, 1 tea
spoon salt, 1 egg.
Mix meal, flour and salt. Pour
boiling hot water over meal. Mix
well. Let mixture cool while
measuring the oil and separating
the egg and beating the whites.
Mix into the meal the oil and egg
yolk. Fold in stiffly beaten egg
white. Drop by spoonfuls on an
oiled baking pan, and bake in a
hot oven about 20 minutes. These
are very delicious.
Hot Cakes: Three-fourths cup
fine zwieback crumbs, or thor
oughly dried bread crumbs, 3
tablespoons flour or Ms cup buck
wheat flour, Yt teaspoon salt, 1 Yi
cups milk (use powdered milk for
this if you wish), 1 egg.
Mix the crumbs, flour and salt.
Heat the milk, not to boiling, but.
somewhat hotter than the hand
can bear—about 145 degrees P.
Pour enough of the hot milk over
the crumbs to make a rather stiff
pour batter. Separate the white
from the yolk of the egg, stir the
yolk into the crumb mixture. Beat
the white stiff and fold it into
the mixture last. Cook on a hot,
slightly oiled griddle till browned
on one side, then turn and brown
the other side.
If you would care to write the
Review and Herald Publishing
Association. Washington 12, D. C.,
I am sure they could supply you
with any number of cookbooks
giving recipes without baking
powder or soda as Seventh-Day
Adventists do not believe in using
any more of these than they can
help. The book I like best, by
George E. Comforth. is “Good
Pood—How to Prepare It." This
book also contains any number
of recipes which supply one with
protein, but which do not con
tain meat. These are simple and
very delicious, and especially
Here is a little thought from the
Bible that has helped me so much.
“He is silently planning for thee
in love, for it matters to Him
about you.” I found this pinned
up in my daughter’s room the
other day.

(From, Mrs. D. C. T., Arlington.)
There are two second-hand book
stores on the west side of Ninth
street N.W. where old magazines
may be purchased. They are be
tween Eye street and New York
avenue. I am sure you will And
the March issue of House Beauti
ful there, or they will get it for
(From L. M. R„ Washington.)
Suggest that M. F. M., Wash
ington, get in touch with Miss L.
H„ Washington, whose offer to
supply periodicals including the
Reader’s Digest, appeared in the
same issue.
Also suggest that Miss L. H. get
in touch with the medical librarian
at St. Elizabeths Hospital to And
out if they can use the Reader’s
Digests offered.
Please, Mrs. N. L. O., Riverdale,
as a fellow librarian, qualify your
suggestion to E. L. N. re the dispo
sition of periodicals. I know Gal
iinger has need of Life, since 1949,
for use of patients. The Special
Libraries Association has as one
of its projects, such a cause. How
ever. as good intentioned as Mrs.
N. L. O. i;, may I suggest that
she call the librarian before tak
ing periodicals to any place?
Sometimes they do not need them,
other times, much as they need
them, they do not have the per
sonnel to accession them and a
library can’t get periodicals and
books unless they do something
with them. Librarians who may
refuse a gift are not ungrateful,
but probably too short handed or
else, their collection does not war
rant the gift concerned.

Please tell me the comparative
merits of a wooden case and a
plastic case to keep sterling Aat
ware from tarnishing. The plastic
case is supposed to be much better
i From R. L. K., Hyattsville.)
A neighbor from back home,
who is a French war bride, is re
turning to France for a visit this
August. She came here on an
Army transport ship and has no
experience in traveling on a com
mercial passenger liner. She
would like to know something
about what clothes she will need
for shipboard wear. Will formal
clothes be necessary and if so will
one evening gown be sufficient?
Can an electric traveling iron be
used on board ship or does the
type of current make this Impos
sible? Any other information will
be gratefully received and I will
forward clippings to her. She is
traveling tourist class on the Be
De France.
Te Mrs. J. R. M., Hyattsvllle:
When my boy was a year old we
went to a hotel in the mountains
where cribs were not available,
and I solved the problem by mak
ing a harness (like the leather
ones used to keep babies from
tumbling out of carriages) out of
a double thickness of grosgrain
ribbon. Through each side of the
harness I slipped a long piece of
wide grosgrain ribbon, and this I
tied to the side supports of the
adult bed he used. I left the side
ribbons long enough to give him
plenty of freedom, but short
enough to prevent his reaching
the edge of the bed at either side.
I’m sorry this answer is so late,
but I mislaid the clipping with
your request.
To Mrs. F. B. G., Arlington:
You could probably dye your ma
terial satisfactorily, but have you
considered the risk involved in
using home-dyed slip covers. Per
spiration. drips from glasses of
iced drinks, or other spilled liquids
may carry the dye through to
your good upholstery. It may be
safer to use your material else
where. A friend of mine made
beautiful summer draperies with
unbleached muslin, dyed bottle
green and wine red. The dyeing
was done in an automatic washing

(From Mrs. R. C. C., Arlington.)
To Mrs. R. H. W., Arlington:
Just use a string or narrow tape
and fasten it from the wood
frame of windows and doors, using
thumb tacks, and then hang the
pennants on the line, pinning the
little tabs over the line. You can
hang any number of pennants this
way, not marring the walls, and
it is a simple matter to remove
the whole line should you want
to do so at any time.

Kosher Green Tomatoes: One
peck small green tomatoes, 1 large
bunch dill. Vt pound garlic, 2 green
peppers, 2 hot red peppers, *4
pound whole mixed spices, salt.
Wash tomatoes and dill and fill
a 1-quart Jar with the tomatoes.
Place jars in a row and to each
add 1 round tablespoon salt, 1
tablespoon mixed whole spices, 2
small cloves, garlic, pieces of
pepper and flowers of dill. Pour
cold water over the tomatoes full
to overflowing and seal tightly.
They will keep indefinitely. Cu
cumbers may be done the same
way, using a little less salt.

Our budget allows $60 per
month for groceries for our fam
ily of two adults and four small
children, plus $18 for milk. I
have greatly appreciated the com
ments of other readers on stretch
ing the food budget. Hearty soups
are very popular with us, particu
larly the following potato soup:
Ham broth or bits of ham, or bits
of bacon, 2 large onions and 4
large potatoes. Dice vegetables
and cover all ingredients with
enough water to cover. Cook until
very tender, add milk, seasonings
and serve.

For Mrs. B. L. E., Washington:
Have you seen the little gilt boxes
in the 10-cent store? They ars
25 cents. Buy small safety pins.
Put all but two of the pins inside
the box. With china cement,
fasten two of the pins to the top
outside the lid. Total cojst, 35
cents. Collar buttons could be
used instead of the safety pins or
common pins.

Miss M. Y. P., Bumpass, can
probably get a plant of citronellis
from the Herb Cottage, Washing
ton Cathedral. I have seen it
there often.
Can any #one tell me where I
can get a child’s book called "The
Up and Down and In and Out
Bookt’ My son had one some
thing like 20 years ago, but some
one borrowed it, with the usual
result, and now I want it for
his little daughter.
