Thanking you. C. S. N, I'm so sorry my answer has been dotained a week. I assure you it was unavoidable. 1 am glad you have ask ed for this recipe of atutled peppers. It Is one I value most highly for an ! extra nice dish, especially adapted to j take the place of meat. It Is worth the time and money: STUFFED PEPPERS: Twelve med ium sized sweet peppers; pound ground round steak (hamburger un seasoned will do); *4 pound salt pork (free from rind and lean) ground; 2 handful, well soaked stale bread, squeezed dry; H cup well soaked rice; aalt; 1 egg; 1 medium sized onion. To stuff—Mince onion .very fine ln< chopping bowl, add meat, bread pre viously soaked In cold water and squeezed dry (take wet bread in two hands and squeeze Into ball), the well soaked rice, salt and egg, mix thor oughly and stuff peppers. To prepare peppers—Cut off top. take out seeds and white velnlng (scissors are excellent to use), put peppers and cut off top In a weak brine for one or two hours before stuffing to remove the bity, hot taste. When peppers are stuffed, set up in deep cooking dish, small end down, cover with cooked, strained tomato Juice and simmer slowly 1^ hours. Serve with the tomato sauoe. When I have fresh tomatoes, I stir them and rub through oolande.r, but a can of tomatoes will do nicely. I find the addition of canned tomato soup to the strained tomato juice gives a very fine flavor to the tomato sauce. STUFFED SUMMER SQUASH—I would like to add this recipe. It is the season when vegetables abound and we are urged to use them at this time, as they are perishable—try this: The squash, when young and tender, may be oookad without paring. Remove the stem and blossom end, put the squash In a coarse cheese cloth bag, and par boil In boiling salt water, for 10 min utes. In the meantime, make a stuf fing, using half a cup minced boiled tongue or ham. Peel and out up two small onions Into dice shaped pieces, put them Into sauce pan with enough cold salted water to cover. As soon as water bolls, rlnBe In cold water and dry with a cloth. Melt 2 tablespoons (level) butter In frying pan—add on ions and fry gently, taking care not to let them get too brown, salt and pep per, mix with 1 cup fresh bread crumbs and a cup of minced boiled ham or tongue, add a little cream and mix welL Take seeds out of parboiled squash and enough pulp to make good sized cavity, brush the Inside with butter, a. dash of salt, then fill the cavity with prepared stuffing, plaoe In baking pan—pour a oup stock around the in FLGIN SIX "THE CAR OF THE HOUR * Breaks Another Record The Elgin Six has just established a new record of 67^a hours between Chicago and Miami, Fla., a strenuous trip of 1,626 car-racking, stamina-testing miles. Thirteen hours of this time was driven in a heavy rainstorm that made the roads slippery and dangerous, and in some places bo deep and heavy with mud that the average car could not negotiate them at alL The route included the Bteep, rocky mountain grades of Kentucky and Tennessee, the heavy sands of Georgia and the slimy, treacherous swamp roads of Florida. The Elgin Six has made perfect scores and won highest economy honors in some of the most gruell ing endurance and economy runs of the past year. Many other remarkable Elgin performances have firmly established the Elgin Six as a Mechanical Mas terpiece and a champion for long-sustained speed, en durance and economy. And, as for style and beauty, no other car selling under $1,250 has the fashionable center cowl and the V"-type radiator of the high-priced European models. Its beautiful yacht line design sets the Elgin Six aside from the monotonous designs of common cars and gives it distinction on country roads or city streets. Elgin Motor Car Corporation, Chicago, U.
