The soft, sunny days of late May
and early June tempt even the most
conscientious to turn their backs on
work, and, since "the only way to
get rid of a temptation is to yield to
it," a picnic is the answer t
One reason for the nation-wide
popularity of picnics is thit they’re
easy on the lady
of the house . . .
sliced tomatoes
and green onions
for salad . . .
corn -on - the -
cob, if a vegeta
ble is wanted
(“roasting ears”
may be cooked in
hot coals, allowing 20 minutes to a
half hour for the best flavor) . . .
taste-tempting cheeseburgers . . .
lemonade, milk or coffee, or all
three . . . and dessert—it’s as
simple as thatl
No dishes to wash afterward . . .
no table linen for the laundry bag
... in fact, it’s almost a case of
**no work and all play!"
For that ’’something hot." which is
a picnic "must,” I suggest plump,
juicy cheeseburgers. If you’re pic
nicking in the woods, your array of
’burgers probably won't look like
the above picture, but they’ll no
doubt taste the same. If you are
entertaining the family or guests at
a "back yard” supper, you can serve
a large tray of cheeseburgers with
assorted relishes, shoe-string pota
toes, and tall glasses of milk or iced
tea—they’ll love the combination!
'Cheeseburgers With Piquant Sauce.
2 pounds ground beef
Vi cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
Dash pepper
Vi pound American cheese
Vi pound butter
8 buttered buns
Mix ground beef with milk, salt
and pepper. Form 8 patties of meat
about 3 inches in diameter. Cut 8
slices of cheese slightly smaller than
size of meat patties. Melt butter in
skillet and fry patties slowly for
about 10 to 15 minutes, turning sev
eral times during the cooking pe
riod. Place on buttered toasted
buns, spread with piquant sauce and
top with a slice of cheese. (If pre
pared indoors, place under broiler
flame until cheese begins to melt).
Serves 8.
Piquant Sauce.
% cup chili sauce
V« cup pickle relish
1 tablespoon prepared mustard, or
1 tablespoon horseradish
Mix all ingredients together well.
If a more highly seasoned sauce is
preferred, a teaspoon of Worcester
shire sauce may be added.
Or you may want to try fried eggs
and hamburger, sandwich style.
Cook hamburgers, set aside to keep
hot. Fry eggs in same skillet, and
serve eggs atop the hamburgers.
When hamburgers are included
in the picnic menu, form the pat
ties of ground meat, mixed with
minced onion and seasoning, be
fore you leave home. Place be
tween waxed paper, and they’re
ready to tcook when the fire is
Hash goes upstage when it is
used as a bun filler. Scoop out
rolls, (leftover or fresh) butter
insides and pile full of savory
cooked hash. Brush top with
melted butter or gravy and bake
IS minutes in moderate oven.
Ideal for out-of-door suppers.
To "dress-up” your picnic bill
of-fare, there are colorful oilcloth
and/or paper tablecloths and nap
kins. You can find them designed
to carry out nearly any theme
i you so desire. And, as an added
tip, in case you're planning to
spread an oilcloth covering on
the ground, attach it to a pair of
old curtain rollers. They’ll pre
vent even the strongest wind from
blowing it away!
Good news for picnic lovers
are the new "lunch” kits. In them
you'll find two one-quart vacuum
bottles, plus a metal lunch box.
The bottles carry their own cups,
nested within their screw tops.
The nicest thing, however, is the
leg which converts the inside lid
into a table.

marshmallows, then place them on
the chocolate candy that is on one
graham cracker. Put the second
graham cracker on top and it is
ready to eat. The marshmallows
should be hot and soft.

While your picnic group may be
addicted to frankfurters in their own
sweet, natural style, you might like
to try a new trick. Split the large
frankfurters down their middles,
spread with rich, brown prepared
mustard. All with chopped sweet
pickle and turn them over to the
“cooking department” to broil.
They’ll prove ever so popular!
Here's a good one to cook in a
kettle: put in one potato for each
person, and cover with water. When
potatoes are almost tender, add
frankfurters (enough for everybody)
and heat thoroughly. With buttered
buns, ketchup, and perhaps some
fresh fruit for dessert, you have a
simple and extremely tasty picnic

If It’s Ice cream you’re planning
for dessert, I’d suggest you use an
ice cream freez

do the grinding

boiler. Add sweetened condensed
milk and stir over boiling water for
five minutes until mixture thickens.

Smartly-Styled Knitted Clothes
Ideal for Town, Country Wear
KNITTED fashions may ‘‘steal the
show” this season, according to
reports from style headquarters.
The enthusiastic demand for knit
ted things has gone beyond what
even the most optimistic dealers an
ticipated. Not for many seasons has
there been such a tremendous vogue
for handknits and for machine knits
that look like handknits.
The wonders that are being per
formed in simulating, through knit
ted technique, tweeds and patterned
woolens seem almost unbelievable
until one sees the 1941 knitted ap
In modern displays one comes
across such stunning machine-knit
models as are pictured in the ac
companying illustration. The town
suit shown to the left is a tailor knit
of navy wool combined with a nubby
white yarn. The horizontal stripes
are cleverly worked through the
long-torso fitted jacket. The navy
skirt of nubby wool knit is simple in
line—a wonderful light machine-knit
fabric that gives body for good tai
loring. White gloves and shirt and
bright red straw hat make it crisp
looking for town.
The casual dress to the right, a
clever simulated handknit in crayon
beige, is one of the reasons for the
new enthusiasm for knitted clothes.
Fashioned on simple line, its yoke,
sleeves and skirt introduce interest
ing texture in ribbed effect. The
bodice is closely knit and it is
trimmed with metal buttons and
Hound’s tooth check in sage green
and white and tricot cord, both ma
chine knitted of lightweight wool,
make a wonderful casual suit for
the country, as shown centered in
the group. The softly tailored one
button jacket with deep revers has
narrow yellow zephyr knit piping
as its only trimming. This is a
woolknit that won’t sag or stretch,
the perfect costume for casual coun
try wear.
There is fine opportunity in the
knitted realm to mix and match
skirts and jackets. While most of
the newer knit skirts have the pleat
ed look there are also skirts with
stylish gored flares. In jacket styles
one finds endless variety. Wrist
length tailored jackets, often with
small notched collars, novelty gold
buttons and four patch pockets, are
One very stylish jacket is the
shorter-than-wrist-length type, with
slight easy blousing above a belted
waistline. Stripes are often favored
in jackets worn with plain skirts.
In dresses a popular choice is wool
chenille that looks as if it is hand
knitted. Also a favorite is a collar
less line plaid wool knit model with
round neck, and buttons down to the
Jacket sweaters are very impor
tant. They are interesting because
of their novelty and variety. The
cable stitch cardigan, which comes
well down over the hips is a favorite
Novel trims in endless variety add
zest to the jacket mode. One of the
interesting decorative touches is
narrow fringe made of the yarn of
which the jacket is knitted. Enthu
siasm for things knitted is reflected
in a revived vogue for swim suits
that are fashioned most intriguingly,
a favorite model being striped and
styled along princess lines. Red and
white is the most popular color com

Underbrim Flowers
Here’s how flowers are being worn
on the underbrims of the new large
summer hats. Those pictured are
bright yellow. Milliners every
where will tell you that there’s noth
ing smarter than a touch of yellow
on your chapeau. The biggest flow
er news of all is that it is very
smart to pin natural flowers on your
hat. Lots of girls have put roses
and even orchids, real ones, on their
hats. The hat above is black felt,
tied on with a black tulle bow.
Fresh mimosa sprays are on the
underbrim. The suit worn is black

Nylon Dresses
Nylon dresses are making their
debut in the better-dress sections of
leading stores. Daytime styles in
clude afternoon types in navy with
cape shoulders and finely pleated
skirts. A model in black has an
all-over shirred jacket.
Evening styles, including dinner
and more formal gowns, have crisp
full skirts.
Tissue-Like Crinkle Sheers
ToPredominate inSummer
The major trend is “sheers for
summer.” There is a sheer char
acter about most of the new sum
mer fabrics. Perhaps this trend is
most notable in the new tissue-like
crinkle sheers. These come in dark
as well as light flowery prints and
therefore are practical, being wash
able and ever so good looking.
Cloque organdies in delicately
flowered prints, marquisettes, tissue
voiles, processed so as to be non
wrinkable, are all on the flrst-in
fashion fabric list.
The topic-making conversation
throughout style centers at the pres
ent moment is black sheers for sum
mer. Best-dressed women are
voicing widespread favor for cos
tumes done in black sheer. Per
haps this is a natural reaction to the
wild color extravaganza that has
taken the world of fashion by storm.
But whatever the reason, the fact
remains that thin dresses and suits
for summer are being given an
earlier-than-usual promotion. Black
sheers are referred to as "siren
black," “black magic."
Hats of black shirred net, some
huge of brim, will be worn this sum
mer. Milliners are also turning out
handsome large hats made of ex
quisite black lace. The vogue for
black sheer is even extending to
Roses, Strawberries Vie
For Popularity in Prints
Roses and strawberries are con
testants in the summer fashion
picture. When you go “print” shop
ping, keep your thoughts centered
on roses and strawberries. It is an
open question as to which is leading
in the print mode
The rose theme appears in every
conceivable form from tiny sweet
heart roses to huge American Beau
The same may be said of straw
berries. The very newest prints
play up the strawberry in realistic

Diner Turned the Tables
On Conniving Couple
Upon receiving his bill, the diner
added it up and found that he had
been overcharged $1.
“How come?” he asked, looking
sharply at the waitress.
“Well, you see, sir,” she replied,
“the cashier bet me half a dollar
that you wouldn’t see it and I bet
him you would. Just a friendly
little wager.”
With a smile the customer wrote
something on the back of the bill,
folded it, and said: “Take that
to the cashier.”
She did so, and on opening it the
two were startled to read: “I’ll
bet $5 I shall not be here when
you get back.”
And he wasn’t.
