THE SUNDAY STAR, Washington, D. C. srxnAT. JAtrCABT is, ISM [Readers' Clearing. Housej HELP WITH WASHER (Mrs. E. C. P.. Arlington) For Mrs. J. A. K.: I had an Identical problem (even to the soap allergy) this fall with a machine that Is four years old that had worked perfectly for three and one-half years. After one occasion when the ma chine "walked” several feet, I • practically had a complex about the whole thing and would sit on the cellar stairs, not daring to leave it while it spun. I finally discovered that although the machine was ; level and I was not overload ing it, It was agitating during the beginning of the spin cycle. It didn’t do this every time, but frequently. This caused the clothes to tangle and the ma chine to get off balance. On phoning the company from which we got the ma chine, I learned that this could be caused by a defective trans mission (in my machine this is guaranteed for five years.) I had a hard time convinc ing the repairman that it was defective, as on several occa sions when he came out it worked perfectly, only to re sume its bad habits after the man had left. After many calls, however, he agreed to re place the transmission and I have had no further trouble. So I suggest you watch your machine go through the cycle and if it agitates during the spin cycle, get in touch with the company. ** * * TIP FOR BRIDES ' (A. H. K., Washington) Here’s a hint tor brides. When vegetables bum, resist the temptation to throw water on them as that makes the entire pan full taste burned. Instead, dump tne vegetables into another pan. discard the burned ones and those partly burned. What is left will be quite edible. (fitiuLci j mSilO5 F STREET.

D.: Replying to your request for Information on living conditions in the Canal Zone, although I was there a long time ago (1927-8) I found them very satisfacto ry. My husband was an Army colonel so we lived on an Army post on the Atlantic aide. Shopping was very good in Colon and Christobal and the climate was warm but comfortable due to the breezes from the ocean. If you are with either the Army or Navy you can buy from the service commissaries at a much lower price than you would be able to get at the city stores. The climate is delightful except for three months of the rainy sea son, at which time when it rains it really pours. The schools were good. One thing I must tell you—when shopping at the city stores (in Colon and Cristobal, if you are on that side) don’t ever pay the asking price, nor do the store people expect you to. You dicker and offer them less and they always come down. The natives will respect you more if they see they cannot take ad vantage of you. You can get almost any of the every day foods dowq there. This is espe cially true If your husband is with one of the branches of the service and you can use the commissaries, which sell at cost price to service people. CHRISTMAS COOKIES? (Mrs. J. H. D., FaUs Church) About 4 years agq I cliDped • recipe from RCH entitled “Christmas Cookies.” It was rather long, giving directions for decorating, etc., and the sender mentioned it was the best cookie recipe she had ever found. It was for me, too, and I used it on every occa sion when I had a large batch of cookies to make, always with excellent results, until I lost the recipe. Then my im- * provisation did not turn out so well. I would be most grate ful If gome one could fill in the missing amounts of the Ingredients. The recipe calls for % pound butter, Ya pound margarine, 6 cups flour, 6 teaspoons baking powder, and amounts of eggs, salt, cinnamon and vanilla. These are what I want. The cookies are glazed, after cutting, with an egg white saved from one of the eggs called fsr, then decorated. They have a superior flavor, much better than the usual sugar cookies, and always re ceived high praise from adults as well as children. ** * * PAINT AWNINGS? (B. P.. Falls Church) This spring we will be con fronted with the task of paint ing our canvas awnings.
