taffeta frocks for summer wear, but
it took a clever designer to originate
this model with its unusual design in

Crisp, green salads should play an
important part in planning the early
spring menus, as not only are they
appetizing and wholesome, but they
may also be utilized Nas the main
course for the evening dinner (when
preceded by a good soup and follow
ed with a hearty dessert) thereby
effecting a material saving in the
butcher's bill. .
Mayonnaise Dressing One heap
ing teaspoon flour, one teaspoon
mustard, one teaspoon salt, four
tablespoons sugar; mix all together
and into it beat one egg. Then beat
in two-thirds cup sweet mill: or
Boil two-thirds cup vinegar, turn
it slowly, beating all the time,over
above mixture, then return it to
Rouble boiler and cook until thick
as cream. Take from stove, beat in
two tablespoons butter or as much
more as you can afford. This makes
one pint of dressing.
Springtime Fruit Salad Mix
equal parts of peeled chopped rad
ishes, dicedcelery and pineapple cut
into cubes. "" To each cupful and a
half of the combined ingredients add
one diced banana and the drained
yellow pulp of two oranges. Moist
en with half a cupful of boiled dress
ing (made without mustard) to which
has been added, two tablespoonfuls
of stiffly whipped cream. Serve in
individual portions on lettuce leaves
and garnish with halved Maraschino
cherries. A fruit salad may com
bine the salad and dessert course.
Sardine and Shrimp Salad Take
equal parts of shrimp and sardines,
marinate separately in a little tar
ragon vinegar. Line salad bowl
with lettuce and fill with alternat
ing layers of cold asparagus tips,
sardines cut in dice, thinly sliced
cucumbers and tomatoes, then one
of shrimp divided in sections' if de
sired. Serve with French dressing.
When Washing Dishes Never
place the handles of any riveted
knife in the water, or the blade will
become loosened. Use a quart meas
ure or other pitcher and fill with hot
water and a pinch of washing-powder.
First clean the blade with a
cork and cleanser, then stand it up
right in the pitcher; wash, after the
other dishes are finished, in clear

I Chopping Hint When chopping
dates, citron, or raisins for cake or
other pastry, mix in with the ingre
dients a portion of the Hour which
is to be used in the baking. This
prevents the fruit from sticking to
the chopper. It is an especially com
mendable precaution to take when
making fruit cake.
An Improved Metal Polish To
keep the metal of pipes, faucets, and
other brass or lacquer ware bright
and shining, cleanse it thoroughly
with the usual metal polish and then
paint the polished surface with a
coating of banana oil which may be
obtained at any hardware store. The
oil seems to act as a preservation on
the polish and triples its endurance.
