is definitely on the way out, and
our thoughts naturally turn to light

settings. For Easter brings out your
loveliest white cloths or pastel yel

inexpensive but effective center
piece. Or, for something more dra

•Leg of Lamb Roast.
The paper thin covering or "fell”
on your leg of lamb does not affect
the flavoring of the cut and need not
be removed until just before serv
ing. In fact, when left on, it keeps
the roast in better shape, cooks more
quickly and keeps the juices well
within the meat.
Mix V4 teaspoon salt, V« teaspoon
pepper, 1 tablespoon dry mustard.
3 tablespoons flour with tfe cup cold
water. Spread this over the leg of
lamb. Roast uncovered in a mod
erately slow (325-degree) oven 30 to
35 minutes to the pound. Spread
with currant jelly the last 20 min
utes. Baste m%at every 15 minutes.
Use canned halves of apricots
or stewed halves, well chilled. Place
a nugget of mint Jelly in the center
and serve around the leg of lamb
A touch of red is a hard color to
resist especially if it's in a crispy,
zestful salad as this one:
•Cranberry Apple Salad.
1 package lemon gelatin
1 enp boiling water
M of a pound can of cranberry
1 teaspoon lemon Juice
Dissolve the gelatin in boiling wa

The Easter dinner 1 planned for
you is economical but doubly so
because you can make good use
of the leftovers.
Cut the remainder of the roast
off the bone, grind it with a fine
grinder, H onion, the potatoes and
green peas. Place in a buttered
dish, bake until heated. During
the last seven minutes of baking
break eggs whole on top of lamb
mixture and serve as soon as
eggs have cooked.
If you have just a little of the
cranberry apple salad left, cut it
into small cubes and serve as a
relish. For salad, use leftover
apricots from the roast garnish
and fill the center with cream
cheese and nuts and serve in let
tuce cups with your favorite
If you have a few leftover green
peas from dinner toss them to
gether with a few carrots, shred
ded for a change. You can cream
these, or mix them with a few
bits of crumbled bacon. For va

boiled onions with the leftover
peas to make enough for a vege
Rolls though leftover go over
well even the next day. You can
slice, toast and butter them. If
you like them whole, simply put
in a covered casserole with a few
drops of water and allow a few
minutes to heat through.

Crusty, fragrant honey rolls are
a gracious addition to your Easter

such as this are minus sugar and
only a small amount of fat and one

Roosevelt's Attitude on
‘Unified Command' . ..
Sea Otters for Light

(Bell Syndicate—WNU Service.)
WASHINGTON. — The President
takes seriously the fact that under
the Constitution he is commander-in
chief of the army and navy. It may
be for that reason that he does not
take kindly to the notion of a de
partment of national defense, to
include army, navy and air force,
as advocated by Senator Bennett
Champ Clark of Missouri and oth
The President’s theory is that
there is a '‘unified command” al
ready, which is
ly he is fairly
well satisfied with
that, and consid
ers the insertion
of another execu
tive between the
tions and himself
just the addition
of that much un
zation, with no re
tages to be had for the U. S.
There is much to be said for his 1
position. But there is also some- !
thing to be said against it, though
there is nothing new on either side
of the argument.
The sharpest objection lies in our
own form of government. Conceiv
ably a man might make a fine Presi
dent in all other respects, but not
be a military genius. It is not
fashionable to belittle Abraham Lin
coln, or even to hint that he was
not the essence of perfection in ev
ery respect. However, the fact re
mains that as commander-in-chief of
the armed forces of the Union he
blundered around for practically
the first three years of the war, try
ing one general after another until
in Grant, Sherman and Sheridan he
found the right prescription.
President: Military Strategist
But the President of the United
States is elected tor a fixed term.
Nothing can be done no matter how
inept he may prove himself as a di
rector of military strategy. In
deed, it is most unlikely that his
ABILITY as a strategist would be
the issue even when he goes to the
country, at the end of a four-year
term, in the midst of a war.
Thus when Abraham Lincoln faced
George B. McClellan in the 1864
election the main issue was not that
McClellan, as a soldier, would make
a better war President than Lin
coln, as would have been a logical
enough campaign talking-point, but
whether the war should be continued
The Pacifists of that day wanted
to stop the war and have peace.
As they proposed that McClellan, if
elected, should make peace, natur
ally they did not bother much to
stress his qualifications as a mili
tary leader for continuing the war.
On the President’s side in the
present controversy, it is unthink
able to have a war President who
would not have the right to appoint
whom he pleased as head of the
“unified command" should there be
one, just as he has the right and
power now to name the secretaries
of war and the navy and the gen
erals and admirals who shall direct
the high strategy. So the President
would not be divested of responsi
Realizing which, the President
prefers to operate without the added
office of Unified Command.
Small Ships Would Release
Larger Ones for War Work
Information as to what has hap
pened to the Sea Otter is an experi
ence as human as a man’s liking to
wear old clothes, or a woman want
ing a new hat. It is the same type
of thing which leads a city man,
who has kept a few chickens in his
back yard, to quit his job and start
trying to make his living with a
Here was a very good idea for
small craft, to supply a crying
need for coastwise and short
distance water transportation,
and which would Release regular
ships now in that sort of service
for more important war work.
So the naval designers get hold
of it, and immediately begin to
improve it. They saw how' they
could make the sea otters big
ger, make them carry more.
They began to think about using
them in the transatlantic war
supplies ferry service.
As a result the idea, very good for
; its original purposes, has gotten no- !
; where. Naturally, with the enlarge-1
ment of the proposed ships, they I
drew more water. That made them, |
as the President pointed out, un
available for the sort of ports for j
which they had originally been de
signed. Also, with the added notion
of their crossing the Atlantic, or
making similar long voyages, came
the question of danger if sufficient
supplies of gasoline were taken.
So we have no sea otters 1
