The texture of cookies is not affected enough by syrup in place of sugar so that it Is perfectly all right to use it. Use V* cup honey or corn syrup in place of each cup of sugar, and add 2 tablespoons of flour to each cup called for in recipe. Fruits may be sweetened with jams and jellies or honey. Add sweetening last with a pinch of salt to make the most of it. Prepared pudding and gelatin mixes may be used with unbaked sweet cooky crusts to save sugar I in making pies. Thicken left-over fruit syrup I from canned fruit with cornstarch and use as sauce for puddings. Make use of dried and fresh fruits for their natural sugar con tent. Substitute fresh fruits in sea son and custards for cakes and pastries as often as possible. ■ ——- Lynn Chambers' Point-Saving Menus Lamb Steaks with Mustard Sauce Creamed Potatoes Brussels Sprouts Pear Salad Cinnamon Rolls Jelly Rice Pudding Beverage | Add flavoring.

As I re member, my words were: "One of the most fascinating books I've ever read. As American ns Boston baked beans. Charac- ' ters sturdy as ' # • Plymouth rock. »aßSi.,'. Mrs. Pierson, fm . American moth- } f • s?* er, could, if she ! had the stuff to •- *"* .rfj do it with, lick ' '"b* j Hitler single- ' /V' handed, as she's ■■ licked wealth and poverty and Louise Kandall brought up five Pierson children. There's a woman I'd fly thousands of miles to meet." She reminded me of it when she got here for the filming of her book. Essence of America Mrs. Pierson, whoso life story, "Roughly Speaking," was recently c. mpletcd by Warners, with Roz Russell in the autobiographical role, is a person that you, too, have met, whether you know it or not. She's America. Born rich, pampered by a father (vho dressed like and faintly be lieved he might be King Edward (even to the beard, which he bril liantined), Louise was dumped out on a coldly realistic world at the age of 10, flat broke. Returning from his funeral, her mother called her two daughters to gether in the sunroom. "The trouble is." she said, "your father indorsed notes." There didn't seem any use in sit ting around bawling, so before long Louise was going great guns as a secretary (sl2 a week), when she met her first husband-to-be, Rodney —"six feet two, tailored by Brooks, and had won six Latin prizes at Yale." Rodney was making 5G6.66 a month in a bank, so the two went to live in an $lB a month flat, where she had four children in four years. When Rodney really got into the chips the family moved to Ossining, where Louise plunged into every thing from politics to the little thea ter. Tragedy struck in the form of infantile paralysis, temporarily laying low all four children. Louise Jr.. never did fully recover. Rodney decided one day he'd had enough. "I'm moving to the Yale club," he declared. So without too much ado she got a divorce, another job, another hus band, and in due time another bahy. Husband No. 2, Harold Pierson, fought with the Canadians in the last war. Kindred Spirits He was ns nuts ns she. "I've always had a weakness for big men with black hair and blue eyes," says Louise. "Besides, ha was romantic, charming, irresponsi ble, generous." He was also rich, owning the vast Pierson green houses and nurseries near Tarry town. Three years later they were broke. Harold got a WPA job in the New York City parks department, which led to the superintendency of land scape construction at the world's fair. She had always wanted to write letters to newspapers, heckling edi torial writers. One of these missives she aimed at Arthur Krock, political editor of the New York Times. Amused, he showed it to his friend Max Schuster, who promptly sent Louise a check and told her to start writing a book. At first, she tells me, she thought it was a gag, but when the check didn't bounce she realized she was stucf:. The result was "Roughly Speaking." She said it was the hardest work Bhe ever did. and she's worked hard 1 at everything from scrubbing floors j to running a 37-foot boat. The book was an overnight smash (I threw at least five of my hats in the air), and three studios began bidding. Warners wired her: "Will you ac- I ccpt $35,000 for 'Roughly Speaking' I and a contract at S3OO a week, with expenses paid both ways?" An swered Louise: "Three hundred a week not enough—need new tooth brush." Replied Warners: "How about SSOO, then?" To which Lou ise wired: "Okay. That will pay for toothbrush and new hair-do, too." Louise Randall Pierson seems to be a feature at Warners. That first contract was torn up and a much fancier one rigged up. She and Har old bought a place at Santa Monica. If you've read the book, "Rough ly Speaking," I don't have to urge ! you to see the picture. If you ' haven't, I envy you the treat in stor» for you. • • • Look Out, New York Lee Shubert is on his way here to complete arrangements for "Sweet (surrender," a musical which is about the battle between Monterey and Los Angeles years ago. It will feature Leo Carrillo. The lyrics kid the pants off everything in Los An geles. That alone will cause it to run in San Francisco a year.
