Grand Prize Will Be
Awarded At Early
Session; Meats to
Be Last Subject
With steadily increasing interest
shewn as The Brownsville Herald
cooking school draws to a close, a
record attendance was expected for
1 riday afternoon, the last session,
which was scheduled to open at 1:30
p. m. because of the football game
Mrs. Myra Oliver Dougan had select
ed meats as her subject for the last
class. The grand award for the
w**k, a Universal in-a-drawer gas
range, given by the Rio (irande Val
'•F g*s company, was also to be
• warded at this time.
About 425 women. the largest
crowd yet in attendance, were pres
ent Thursday afternoon for Mrs.
I Dougan’* class in cake making, “the
millinery of cooking.” as she calls
it. She took up the two types of
standard eake«. the butter rakes, in
cluding the white cake, and the vel
low- cup rake, and the sponge cake,
and gave basic recipes for each,
from which the innumerable varia
tion known to cake-makers every
where. From these she made sev
eral different kinds of fancy cake
on the stage as illustrations, and
suggested novelties, as the un«;de
down cake and the volcano dessert.

For her white cake, Mrs. Pougan
used the following recipe 3 cups
flour, sifted, 7-8 cup frisco, 2 cups
sugar. 3 level teaspoons baking
powder, 1-4 teaspoon salt, the whites
ef 5 eggs, 1 1-2 cups sweet milk,
and 1 teaspoon flavoring, blended,
1-2 orange and 1-2 lemon. In mix
:ng her cake, she explained and dem
onstrated the proper way to meas
ure the flour and other ingredients,
and the best method of mixing. A
clever method of measuring solid
shortening was shown. Mrs. Pougan
filling a measuring cup half full of
water, then filling with frisco to ob
tain an even 1-2 cun of the fat. She
also advised her audience to use
about 1-8 cup less of the vegetable
fats than of the measurements of
butter called for by a recipe, and to
add 1-4 teaspoon salt to each cup.
The reason for dry cakes. Mrs. Pou

recommended an oven tempera
ture of about 250 degrees. Instead of
the usual 300 for baking rakes, be
cause of the high heatinv quality of
leca! gns. With the white cake she
made a delicious upside-down cake,
by pouring the hatter on top of a
layer of hrown sugar, nuts, sliced
pineapple and cherries, and haking.
Thik results in a very rich, yet eas
ily made dessert.

Mr*. Dougan made a large angel
food rake for decorating, using the
following recipe: 1 1-2 cup egg
whites, 1 1-2 cup sugar (granulated 1. I

nuts, chopped fine, after the fruit*
had been carefully drained, and iced
it on the outside with a marshmal

pastry tube. This she calls a filled
angel food, and is an original recipe.
W hilc decorating the cakes, she
made a pretty novelty suitable for
an announcement party, cutling two
hearts from a plain sheet of the
white cake, icing them with the
marshmallow, and decorating dainl-i

mixed them with enough of the

Many Awards Made
To keep angel food cake from
sticking to the plate, Mrs. Dougan
advised sprinkling the dish with a
little confectioner’s sugar. She also
warned her hearers never to wa-n

and told a questioner that such a
pan should never be greased.

Justice Jenning* Bailey in District of
Columbia supreme court took under
advisement today a defense motion
in the perjury trial of Robert W.
Stewart, of the Indiana Standard Oil |
company, that he direct a verdict’of
not guilty.
Arguing the motion, defense coun
sel contended the government bad
failed to support its charge that
Stewart had falsely sworn before a
senate committee that he had no
knowledge of the hond transactions
of the Continental Trading company,
involved in the Teapot Dome oil case. I
As the last witne*s. Senator Nye.
of North Dakota, testified the oil .
man had sworn to the senate public
lands committee last February that
“he had never received personally”
any of the bonds of the Continental
(Trading company.

‘Naughty Marietta’
Charms Audience;
Musical Numbers
"Naughty Marietta.” Victor Her
bert’s opera comique. presented at
the Capitol theater here Thursday
matinee and evening, was crammed
to overflowing with beautiful mel
odies sung by excellent voices and
played by an orchestra that seemed
inspired with the spirit of the late
"Master of Melody.”
Nothing, in fact.•was lacking in
this presentation which was by far
the finest ever to appear this far
south on the mainland of the United
States and those persons who failed
to attend either of the two shows
missed a rare treat in entertainment.
The play is being presented in the
municipal auditorium in Harlingen
Although the matinee played to a
scattered ragged house, the night
show had an audience that practic
ally filled the theater and responded
with whole hearted applause after
each special musical number or dance.
To attempt to pick an outstanding
star from among the leads would be
as difficult as attempting to find the
proverbial needle in the haystack.
From the leads to the most minor
parts, the play was well rounded and
presented a finish unknown to the
usual run of road attractions.
The highest flaunted words of
praise beggar a description of the
"slave dance” as presented by Eliza
beth Arens and Vaughn Atkinson.
These two young people have reached
the peak in the dancing field. Miss
Arens is the personification of grace
while her partner is past master of
the art of muscular control.
In reviewing the musical numbers
presented, there were at least four
that will remain long in the memory
of those attending. Thev were not

Marietta DAltena (Era Briggs)
and “I’m Falling in Love with Some
one.” Capt. Dick Warrington, (Fer
dinand Zcgel), were the four lilting
numbers that reached out across the
footlights to find a permanent place
in the memories of music lovers who
attended the light opera.
The singing and acting of the four
leads which included Era Briggs as
"Marietta." Ferdinand Zegel as “(’apt.

Missing Since Nov. 3
In Blizzard On
‘Barren Lands'
PRINCE ALBERT, Sask., Nov. 16.
—{£**—■ A party of seven men, miss
ing since November 3 when they left
for Fort Churchill for the terminus
of the Hudson Bay Railway Line, are I
believed to have perished in a bliz
xard which swept the "barren lands"
of Northern Manitoba shortly after
they started their 100 mile journey.
Word cf the blizzard was brought
here by A. Johnstone who with a
party of eleven left Fort Churchill
November 2, arriving at the railroad
terminus November 5.
Johnstone said he and his party
took the most frequented trail, the
one along the Deer river, and then
counted themselves luck to arrive
safe, as they were without shelter
tents and had little food. The other
party was no better equipped and
Johnstone believed they could not
have survived this long.
An unsuccessful search by men in
airplanes and Indian guides with dog
teams has been carried on for the
men since November 5.
