Doable Trouble
“The trouble with you is the same
as with another patient of mine,”
said the doctor. “He worried and
got nervous dyspepsia. He was
worrying himself to death about his
tailor’s bill. Now he is cured."
“But how did you cure him?”
asked the patient.
“Told him to stop worrying, and
he’s done so,” replied the doctor.
"I know,” was the doleful answer.
“I know he has. But I’m his tailor.”

PUMPKIN PIES FOR HALLOWEEN
See Recipe* Below.
When Witches and
Goblins Roam
What night is better suited to in
formal entertaining than all Hal
low’s Eve? Candlelight, leering
Jack-o-lantems, and crepe paper
decorations in orange and black cre
ate an eerie atmosphere for an eve
ning of hilarious fun.
No one “dresses”—or, if they do,
they dress in grotesque costumes
which only add to the festivity.
Entertainment is simple, and easy
to provide. Old fortune telling
B games and bob-
A A bing for apples
are always
fun, and a trip
through a “cham
hjf ber of horrors” is
If as much a part
If of Halloween as
are good things
to eat.
For variety, and a lull in the ex
citement of wilder entertainment,
you might try a “paper and pencil
game”—a pri?e to be given to the
guest who can list the greatest
number of superstitions, or answer
the greatest number of questions in
a “Cat Questionnaire” (for exam
ple), “What cat is an ancient bury
ing place?” (catacomb) and “What
cat is a plant of the mint family?”
(catnip).
Food for a Halloween gathering
is simple and substantial—baked
beans with brown bread, cabbage
slaw, and coffee; doughnuts with
mulled cider, or pumpkin pies a
la mode. You’ll find among the fol
lowing suggestions some that are
old and some that are new.

1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons hot water
6 small tart shells

Sausage Roll-Em-Ups.
4 small pork sausages
4 long slices bread
Prepared mustard
Melted butter

browned. Spread bread with pre
pared mustard. Wrap the sausages
in the bread and fasten with a tooth
pick. Brush with melted butter—

a hot oven (400 degrees) until brown.

ley.
Taffy Apples.
2 cups granulated sugar
% cup light corn syrup
Vt cup water
Red liquid coloring (few drops)
12 red apples
12 skewers
Few drops oil of peppermint, cinna
mon or cloves
Wash apples thoroughly and dry
them. Insert skewer in blossom
end. Put sugar,
com syrup and
water into a Jav'/VH
saucepan aid 'yX \
cook, stirring un- \ /K
til the sugar is
dissolved. Con- WCi
tinue cooking
without stirring
until the temperature 300 degrees F.
is reached—crack stage.
Wash crystals away from side of
saucepan as mixture cooks. Cook
slowly during latter part of period
so that syrup will not darken. Re
move from flame and set saucepan
into boiling water. Note: A double
boiler may be used for this. Add
coloring and flavoring and stir just
enough to mix well.
Holding apple by skewer, plunge
it into hot syrup. Draw it out quick
ly and twirl it until the syrup runs
down to the stick and spreads
smoothly over the apple. Stand
skewer in a small glass or cake
rack so that apple will not touch
anything while cooling.
Apples should be made the day
they are to be used because moist
ure from apple will soften candy
and make it sticky. Dipping must
be done rapidly or syrup will be
come too stiff for coating.
The football season is in full
swing! One of these chilly Sat
urdays it would be a grand treat
to let the youngsters bring “the
gang” home from the game for
a football supper.

Desired Extra Bathroom
Need Take Little Space
Few houses are being built to
day without two bathrooms, or at
least a bathroom and extra lava
tory. In the modernization of an
old house, consideration should be
given to this feature.
Plumbing authorities have found
that the essential fixtures of a bath
room can be installed in a floor
space which measures five feet one
way and six feet the other. Space
at the unused end of the hallway
often may be converted into an ex
tra bathroom, and in some cases
an oversized bedroom may be con
verted into a guest suite by parti
tioning it and including a bathroom.

Buckram and Tacks
To Stiffen Valance
By RUTH WYETH SPEARS
r\EAR MRS. SPEARS: A
friend gave me a copy of
your Book 3 and I can’t tell you
what a transformation is taking
place in my home because of it.
For a long time I have wanted liv
ing room curtains with smoothly
fitted valances stiffened with
buckram. Could you give me step
by-step directions for making
them?”
A four-inch valance shelf; buck
ram and thumbtacks are the only
“extras” needed. 1: Cut the buck
ram the exact size of the finished
valance—no seam allowances. The
chintz for the valance and the fac
ing material are cut larger as in
dicated. 2: Outline the scallops
by drawing around the buckram.
3: Stitch the chintz and facing
with right sides together. Steps
4,5, and 6: Trim the scallops;
clip between them; then turn
and press. 7: Insert the buck
ram; fitting it smoothly into the
scallops. Turn in and stitch the
top; allowing % inch to extend
above the buckram. 8: Tack this
soft edge to the shelf.
NOTE: If you have had Mrs.
Spears’ books 1 and 2, you will
want No. 3. It is full of new ideas
for homemakers, and step by step
directions for making important
pieces of furniture. Also newest
styles and methods of making slip
covers and curtains. Original de
signs for rag rugs; gifts and ba
zaar items. Send 10 cents in coin
with name and address to Mrs.
Spears, 210 S. Desplaines St., Chi
cago, 111.
