pinky finger. Or better yet, he
might even wipe the dishes for
In the meantime, here’s a
cookie recipe to try out on the

Mrs. Dorothy Curran, of O’Neill,
wins our subscription prize.
I wrote your column several
years ago and won a 3-months’
subscription to The Frontier. I
am going to try again as we en
joy the paper so much.
This is the first winter I have
been able to spend at home for
the past 5 years as I taught
school. Does it ever seem good!
But my husband says sometimes
he thinks I spent more time at
home then. I guess he wouldn’t
be an average man if he didn’t
have smething to say when a
woman spends a day at club
Several hints I have found ve
ry useful are:
Take your dull scissors and
sharpen them by cutting through
a piece of sandpaper once or
Popcorn is very delicious
popped in your pressure cook
er, leaving the vent open.
Meat loaf will not stick to the
bottom of the pan if several
strips of bacon are placed in the
bottom before placing the meat
Here is also a recipe for a—
Four cups white sugar, 2 cups
whole milk, Vi pound butter.
Cook the ingredients to soft ball
stage. Remove from heat. Then
add two 6-ounce packages of
chocolate chips, 24 diced marsh
mallows or 1 cup marshmallow
creme, 1 cup nut meats, and 1
teaspoon vanilla. Remove from
heat before adding latter ingre
dients. Stir until chips and marsh
mallows are dissolved. This is a
large recipe and is very delicious.
Am sending along a favorite
piece of verse. This poem was
originally written for a boy, so I
tried to revise it as we have 2
LITTLE GIRL THINGS
My house is quite untidy, I really
Most folks would say the place
is in an awful mess.
Paper dolls and color books, clut
ter up the plfice.
But all are very priceless, when
viewing a happy little face:
Some long dresses, high-heeled
slippers, a pretty doll or two.
All go to make up the life of
These are the things that clutter
up my hours, but I don’t
For all too soon these small
girl things she will have left
And then the house will be so
neat, with things all put a
f way, •
So let me live in and enjoy, a
cluttered house today.

"Until we rebuilt

Phone Service Is"
president of the Rosedale
Rural Telephone Co. near
North Platte, Nebr.
“Before we rebuilt our lines, our phone service was al
most worthless,” said Mr. McKain. “Even so, we had
quite a time getting some of our stockholders in the no
tion of rebuilding. — Now service is so good, those same
people say they would gladly have paid twice what they
did for it.”
These North Platte ranchers did all the work under
the supervision of a Northwestern Bell construction man.
Their company serves 25 customers on three two-wire
circuits. Other improvements include “lift the receiver”
service and divided code ringing in which each family
hears fewer rings for others on the line. Five new cus
tomers are now being served by the company.
“We surely like our school
phone,” says Miss Esther
Fablinger, teacher at District
82 rural school — one of the
Rosedale Company’s new
“It gives the parents and
me peace of mind to know
we can get in touch with
each other quickly."
Northwestern Bell helped the Rosedale company as it has
helped over 900 other farm telephone companies in the
last two years by engineering their plant, lending tools
and supervising construction. If you receive switching
service from us and are interested in improving your
service, stop in and talk it over with our Manager. He’ll
be glad to help you.
