Chill off for better work. A little

i home economics specialists. Egg
whites whip better if they are at
room temperature. The various in
gredients in cake ? butter, sugar, milk,
egfgs ? blend better if they are the
temperature of the kitchen, therefore,
therefore, should be taken out of the
refrigerator an hour or so before mix
ing to take off the chill. Dried fruits
and dry beans "soak up" faster in hot
water. ' Hot water is better for rins
ing rice, both before and after cook
ing. It carries off loose starch .and
separates tlie grains of cooked rice
better, ^besides keeping the rice hot
In making mashed^ potatoes use hot
milk because it softens lumps, adds
to lightness, and keeps the potatoes
In sprinkling clothes lot ironing,
warm water penetrates and spreads
through fabrics faster than cold water.
Placing the sprinkled and rolled -up
clothes near a warm stove or radior
(not hot) for a short time also helps
get the ironing ready in a hurry.

SO YOU THINK IT'S COID HERE
IF YOU THINK you've had reason to complain of the cold, take a look at
Pvt Charles Preston, Nicholasville, Ky., as he cleans the snow from his
machine gun mounted on his jeep somewhere in Belgium, That metal
gets so cold you can't touch it with your haiut without serious conse
quences. This is an official Signal Corps Radiotelephoto. ( International )
preserve the leather, have the oil
slightly warm and the shoes at room
temperature. The leather will ab
sorb the oil faster. Set a bottle of
furniture polish in warm water a
few minutes before using. Warm
polish penetrates the pores of the
wood faster. Wax goes on floors and
other surfaces more easily a n d
smoothly if it is not too cold.
For yatering nouse plants, plant
scientists advise tepid water instead
of cold. Cold water may shock the
plant, damage the roots and retard
the growth. In greenhouses watering
is done with slightly warm water for
Washing machines, electric mixers,
or other, household motors kept in a
cold place should be brought into .*
warm room a few hours before using.
Otherwise the oil or grease may be to#
stiff to lubricate properly.
A relatively large amount of milk
can be consumed here in the rapidly
expanding industrial South after the
war, if there are fair prices to pro
ducer, distributor, and consumer,
