The three popular flavors,
white, yellow and devil’s food,
come “twin packaged” for the
first time in cake mix history.
The mix is evenly divided into
two airtight packages, each
equivalent to one layer of an

a cake mix tailored to meet the
needs of a small family.
The package contains an
other bonus . . . pan liners to
save you the trouble of cut

are outlined for both an 8 and
9 inch size cake pan.
With this new style pack

or devil’s food, using packs
from different packages.

Crusty brown slices of fried

something more to go with it,
how about fried apple rings?

a bit dry? Do this: Tear the
cake into bite-sized pieces.
Prepare a package of choco

1 cup whipped cream aftd V 2
cup chopped walnuts. Arrange
alternate layers of the cake
bits and the chocolate nut
mixture in a bowl. Chill several
hours or overnight before serv

powder may be added to the
flour-salt-pepper mixture in
which chicken is rolled before
frying. The flavor is delicious

fill muffin-pan cups with batter
for muffins or cup cakes is to
use your gravy ladle. It does a
neat job and one scoopful is
usually enough to fill the cup

luncheon salad is this com

South Africa Subject Reception
Os Luncheon Address For Q ueen
The modern trend away
from the land is alluring to
the Bantu women of South
Africa—often with tragic con
sequences, Mrs. John E. Hollo
way told the Washington Club
But there have been some
who have made the “giant
stride” from primitive bar
barism to civilization, she said.
Wife of the Ambassador of
the Union of South Africa,
Mrs. Holloway spoke at an
international luncheon at the
club’s headquarters at 15 Du
pont circle.
Mrs. Holloway detailed tri
bal customs in the native ter
ritories of her homeland and
described the Bantu woman
“as barbaric yet gentle, ar
tistic within the confines of
her surroundings.”
In the tribes, she pointed
out, there are certain moral
codes which are strictly ob
served. But, when the detri
bilised native woman goes to
the cities she feels free to
break any inconvenient rules,
the speaker added.
Like country people all over
the world who are newly ar
rived in the odty, the Bantu
women are "bewildered, dazzled
and. with their background
removed, have none of the old
decencies to cling to,” she said.
"There is enough work for her
—in factories, in domestic
service, but alas she has sud
denly acquired freedom, and
she does not know how to use
it,” Mrs. Holloway added.
However, the detribilised
Bantu woman sends her chil
dren to school regularly, Mrs.
Holloway reported. The na

“At Durban we have the
most modern medical school
for them,” Mrs. Holloway said.
“The girls are trained as hos
pital nurses throughout the -
country. And let me add that
of all people who can cope
with the witch-doctor’s evil,
the doctors and nurses have
the best chance. The mission
aries have small influence
against him.”
Yesterday’s program was ar
ranged by the club’s Interna
tional Luncheons Committee
headed by Mrs. Waverly W.
A South African theme was
carried out in the decorations,
with a large flag of the Union
of South Africa hanging from
the balcony while smaller
flags were placed on the
speaker’s table. Gladioli, which
are native to South Africa,
and a figurine of a Bantu
woman, loaned by the Em
bassy, formed the centerpiece.

club president, introduced Mrs.
Holloway to members and
their guests during a recep

Modern Marriage
Husbands Are
Where You
Find Them
By Dr. Paul Popenoe
Hundreds of girls ask me
where they can go to meet
marriageable men, and most
of them seem to think all they
need is to be set down among
such men, and they will soon
be heading for the marriage
license bureau. It's not so
simple as that. But before I
analyze the situation, let me
give an extract from Betty’s
letter. Living on the Atlantic
Coast, she is considering a
move to Alaska.
“Do you think it would be
worthwhile?” she inquires. I
hear there are very few wom
en and plenty of men up there.
I am a stenographer, and I
am sure I could get a job.
I don’t hesitate to tell you
that my main purpose in life
is to marry. What about Alas
I have known a number of
women who went to Alaska and
found husbands: and I have
known a much larger number
who found husbands right at
home. Moreover, I don’t know
how many women went to
Alaska and came back unmar
ried. The army has just sent
my youngest son to Fairbanks
—l’ll ask him for a report
which I’ll pass on to the read
ers of this column in due time.
Girls who have been up there
tell me no girl should move
there unless she is mature,
thoroughly able to look out for
herself, and has many inner
It would be an interesting
experience and a valuable edu
cation in many ways; but if it
is merely a matter of finding
a husband, I don’t think you
need to go that far. One of my
colleagues at the American In
stitute of Family Relations,
Dr. Mary Jane Hungerford,
has prepared a bulletin,
“Where To Meet Men.” I
don’t know of any brief state
ment as valuable as this, and
I’ll be glad to send a copy
with the compliments of this
newspaper to any reader who
encloses a stamped, self-ad
dressed envelope with the re
Meanwhile, let’s ask whether
that is all you need. A girl in
your position should first of
all ask what she has to offer
in marriage. Why should any
man want to marry her?
With a clear understanding
Red Cross Chapter
Marks Founders 7 Day
Observance of Founders’ Day
of the D. C. Chapter of the
American Red Cross will take
place tomorrow. It will be the
occasion for two events mark
ing the 50th anniversary of the
chapter and will be designated
as Mabel Boardman Day since
it was the late Mabel Board
man who spearheaded forma
tion of the unit in her home at
1801 P street N.W., on March
25, 1905, and became an inter
national figure in Red Cross.
First on the day’s schedule
will be a luncheon of all area
campaign divisions in the Hall
of Flags at the United States
Chamber of Commerce when
members of the Boardman
family will be guests of honor.
In the afternoon, ceremonies
will be held at District Red
Cross Chapter headquarters,
2025 E street N.W., which will
include the unveiling of a bust
of Miss Boardman. executed
by famed New, York sculptor,
Herbert Haseltine.
In attendance at both the
noon and afternoon ceremonies
will be members of Miss Board
man’s family including her sis
ter, Mrs. Murray Crane and
her daughter, Miss Louise
Crane of New York City. Dan
iel W. Bell, D. C. Chapter
chairman and Mrs. Crane Vill
be principal participants in the
unveiling ceremony, A eulogy
to Miss Boardman will be de
livered by Joseph C. Grew,
former Ambassador to Japan,
and cochairman of the an
niversary committee with John
Clifford Folger, who is honor -
of her own worth, she should
ask herself what kind of a
man she is entitled to expect;
and whether she is able to rec
ognize the kind of man who
would be interested in what
she represents. Thousands of
girls remain unmarried be
cause they don’t recognize a
good husband when they see
Finally, if she can meet those
tests, she should ask herself
whether she knows what to do
with the right man when she
meets him. Additional thou
sands of girls meet good "pros
pects.” recognize them as such,
but drive them away by their
own tactics. They are too ag
gressive or too' timid or too
adolescent or too unreasonable
to get any farther.
All this doesn't sound as
romantic as the idea of going
to Alaska, being recognized at
first sight by some Prince
Charming, and being swept off
your feet into matrimony. But
it’s nearer the truth!
Irk ye $
ary president of the D. C.
chapter and who will preside.
Mrs. Arthur Larson, wife of
the Undersecretary of Labor
will act the “voice” in reading
from a text formerly read by
Miss Boardman herself.
These double-barreled events
will mark the second in a series
commemorating the chapter’s
half-century of service in the
Nation’s Capital.
Keynote speaker at the noon
meeting will be Jennings Ran
dolph. A special reading of an
official statement made by
Miss Boardman in 1931 will be
delivered by Mrs. Larson.

of $250 has been allocated by
