OUR NEIGHBORS By SALLY MEREDITH So much chatter has come my way this week, I hardly know where to begin. Seems a lot of people were born in October. At least, there’ve been quite a few birthday cele brations in the past week or two. My husband was among them, celebrating his —th birthday last Saturday—A two-day celebration marked the birthday of Miss Amelia Mona Benjamin, who was 12 years old on Saturday, October 12. Starting Saturday with a birthday luncheon and a treat at the local movie emporium (en joyed by Amelia and three of her friends—Mary Lewis, Patsy Lane and Barbara Runyon), the cele bration ended Sunday, with a birthday dinner. Congratulations, Amelia!—Also to be congratulated is Miss Dolores Julian, of 1-G Northway, who became 17 years old last Saturday. She celebrated with a thoroughly enjoyed party, at which 25 guests were present. Included were four Greenbelters: Miss Lorraine Mullin, Miss Joan McNamara, Jimmy White and George Davidson. Dolores re ceived a lot of lovely gifts, but the question is—who swiped one of them? By the way, I hear that one of the guests—a new comer to Greenbelt—has managed to set aflutter many feminine hearts at Greenbelt High. We hope he recovers the class pin he lost Saturday night. (Did someone take that, too?) After three weeks in Racine, Wis., Mrs. Arthur L. Rysticken, 7 Woodland Way, returned to Greenbelt last Friday.—Mrs. Ed win Eisenbaugh and son “Tinker,” 39-G Ridge Road, are back in town after their week’s vacation in New York City.— Peggy Zorach says she’s very glad to be back in Greenbelt. We’re glad, too, Peg gy!—Ben Perelzweig spent last week end in New York, leaving the Missus to “bach” it. Mrs. Mary Jane Kinzer is stili on the sick list. We hope that by the time you read this she will be lots better.-—Also under the weather i 8 James Bobbitt, 4-B Crescent.

By the way— watch for a new feature starting with the next issue, a weekly book review by Reba Harris. Sounds in teresting. There’s really a hep jive-cat at 38 Crescent. You should hear him give with “Daddy.” One of his listeners was so appreciative lie read a poem in the singer’s praise. Miss Flanagan Teaches Spout Leadership Attention is being called to the Girl Scout leaders’ training course being given by Miss Regina Flanagan for the next four Tues days at 3:15 p. m., in the social room of the school. Several Girl Scouts have volunteered their services in caring for small chil dren of mothers who would like to attend the course. There is no charge or obligation connected with the course, and Miss Flan- Tn expects that a large group women will take advantage of this opportunity. “More leaders are needed for Greenbelt if all of the girls who would like to be Scouts are to have this chance,” she told a Cooperator reporter. Girl Scouts are given training in citizenship, homemaking ex peience, out-of-door adventure and a chance to help others, as well as good times in their after school hobbies. Speaking of space, there is no wasted room when supplies are shipped to the Army. For example, the Quartermaster Corps reduces freight space 60 per cent when shipping meat. The secret—which is really no secret at all—consists or removing the bone and pack ing the meat in 50-pound units for shipment, thus accounting for the great savings in space and height. All souffles must have the eggs well beaten and folded into the mixture at the last minute. They may be prepared ahead of time, up to the point of adding the beaten egg whites. They must be cooked slowly in a moderate oven with the baking pan set in a pan of boiling water. "f* Dr. Mary Richardson Honored at Tea Honoring Dr. Mary Richardson approximately 150 of her friends, women members of the Health Association, gathered in the social room Tuesday evening, October 21. Dr. Mary, as she is affection ately called by those who know her and admire her work here, wore an orchid corsage, presented to her by the hostesses. She was assisted in the receiving line by Mesdames Delpha McCarl, Ruby Creggar, Jane Kincheloe, Helen Chasanow, Anne Hull, Katherine Arnfess and Betsy Woodman. The long, formal tea table was tastefully decorated in yellow and white, with tall yellow candles adding to the charm and gracious hospitality of the evening. Bou quets of yellow and white chrys anthemums graced the table window ledges, and the piano. I emptmg trays of attractively spread crackers, fancy cookies and cup cakes and yellow and white mints served with the steaming tea called most of the guests back more than once to the festive table. Among those pouring tea were Mrs. Charles Mrs. Comly B. Richie, Mrs. ■William Stewart and Mrs. Sherrod East. They were assisted by Mes dames Helen Johnson, Jessie Letkeman, Anne Miller, Dorothy Custer, Dorothy Fleisher and Peggy Zorach. A great deal of pleasure was added to the evening with a group of songs by Mrs. Anne Miller, who played her own accompani- LOYALTY <o yom CO-OP * LOYALTY * YOURSELF SHOP YOUR OWN STORES FIRST T'" CLAMOROUS MORE MEAT PER DOLLAR f|^ :i /,Nylons on Faunce and Brooke || m.

Five hundred and fifty more homes are to be constructed for civilian defense workers in Wash ington including 200 family dwelling units for Navy Yard workers. Joe King—CßS. Already, one large food concern is experimenting in selling dried eggs in a small consumer package. If dried eggs should take hold in this country after the war, they .would increase the market for eggs, especially among low-income families, and also help iron out the big ups and downs in egg prices in different seasons of the year.
