the commission, headed by Julian

has announced the Wage Commission
primarily was to place the state er.i

that schedules for different classes
of employes would be uniform
throughout the departments. Some
increases may be made and some em
ployes may be dropped as unneccs

She also stressed the North Carol! aa

THE average housewife is prac
tically running a domestic
"three ring circus." Beside
the social duties which take her
out of her home, she is pretty sure
to have either business or club in
terests as well. Also she must not
neglect her family-meals.
The pantry shelves well-stocked
with ready-to-serve foods have
proved the solution of this busy,
modern woman's problem. As all
modern canneries know the secret
of preserving the vitamins during
the canning process, these foods are
just as nourishing as Ihe fresh o-ics
and many ac (uire a nev,- atvl del

The economy tics in the fact that

Tlie Versatile Pineapisie
PINEAPPLE has indeed been
well named the most versatile
fruit that we have. In des
serts it is unrivaled and as a salad
with cheese it is as delicious as it is
good to look at Its widespread
popularity dates from the perfec
tion 01 tne canning process, for it
is the canned product that is in
greatest demand. Fresh pineapple
is somewhat tasteless and is usually
mil 01 tougn noers.
Canned pineapple is packed in
two ways tor the convenience of
tne bouMwtfo in slices for salads
and desserts that require firm
fruits, and shredded for ice cream,
sherbets... fruit drinks, puddings,
pies and other fancy desserts.
Recently the world hss been de
veloping a taste for saute pineapple
and you will now find it served in
this form with meat dishes. To
saute pineapple place slices of it in
a frying pap of hot butter and
brown it slowly on both sides.
For a quick dessert nothing is
more delicious or easier to make
than shredded pineapple mixed with
marshmallows cut in small pieces
and bound together with whipped
cream. , If you like, a sprinkling
ot coconut can be added on top.
Crushed pineapple makes a deli
cious sandwich filling if mixed with
cream cheese. It also adds flavor
to ice cream when poured on like

For the Children's Parly
RafTmhaienia Must He
Wholesome As Well Aa
PARTIES are one of the joys of
childhood. They will linirer
in the memory, long after
other early incidents are forgotten.
Therefore every mother should see
to it that her little boys and girls
have birthday celebrations that are
Of course, games and other
features of the entertainment play
a Digf part in every children s party.
But, after all, it is "the eats" that
count most with the little folks.
The mother should take pains to
serve inc son 01 nungs mat most
children like best, yet always with
an eye to their wholcsomeness.
Many a party is shadowed by a
cnua s illness atterward, from eat
ing too many rich, indigestible mixtures.
A simple menu will be just as
satisfactory to the little guests, and
at the same time make the whole
affair easier for the mother. Re
freshments should be selected that
do not require elaborate prepara
tions beforehand. Of course, the
birthday cake should be made cithcr
the afternoon before, or the morn
ing of the party.
Here is a good, standard recipe
for the birthday cake: i cup
evaporated milk, diluted with 28
cup water; 1 cup butter; 2 cups
sifted sugar; JH cups flour; 8
whites of eggs beaten stiff; 4 tea
spoon! baking powder; 1 teaspoon
vanilla; yi teaspoon almond ex
tract Cream the 'butter and add
the sifted sugar, a little at a time,
beating to a fluffy cream. ' Add; the
diluted milk and 3 cups of flour,
alternately, a little at a time, until
half of each is used. Fold in half
the egg whites; then tht rest of
the flour and milk. Fold isu thc
remaining egg whites, and add to
tne batter the bakinir-oowder thor-
oughly mixed with. the remainimr
quarter cup pi flour.,,; Add the flsv-j
onnff- ! JP,k IB with
paper. This will make one large
birthday cake or two smaller ones.

the syrup threads when

Pour gradually over the
beaten white, of eggs, stir
ring constantly until the
frosting is of the right consistency
to sorcad. Add the flavoring and
spread on the cake.
Probably ice cream will be served
with the cake, but for a first course
pineapple salad with whipped cream
wirjld undoubtedly please the little
folks. It is so simple a matter to
open a few cans of pineapple and
arrange the slices neatly on separ
ate plates, surrounding each plate
with maraschino cherries, and put
ting a fluffy mound of whipped
cream in the center. Evaporated
milk may be used to make tke
whipped cream, preparing it thus:
scald the. contents uf a can in a
double boilet 7or five minutes, then
set on ice to cool. SttV it constant
ly while boiling and also while cool
ing, so as to prevent a crust from
forming on it. When cool, it may
be whipped like ordinary cream.
With the pineapple salad, wafers
or thin bread and butter sand
wiches may be served. A: basket
