SALMON WEEK GLORIFIES
EVER YD A Y FOODS! j
Canned salmon has been an un
obtrusive staple for years—con
tent to do its excellent service for
family dinners quietly whenever
called from its place on the pan
; try shelf. But now, this familiar
sea-food emerges as a real celeb
rity in its owr. right. It even has
a “Week" all it* own—for Febru
ary 28 to Marci. 7 this year, is
, Salmon Week, and many a cook
and budding chef will be turning
to some interesting new salmon
1 dishea to enliven everyday menus,
1 and increase their own reputations.
The official Salmon Week dish
—far from being a haughty and
1 expensive affair — is one of the
simplest and least expensive of all
main dishes. It is particularly de
lightful for service during the
Lenten season, when most meal
planners are including fish main
dishes in several menus each week.
The Salmon Week dish is a cas- 1
serole which should come to the
table piping hot. Delicious enough
to appeal to the most particular
family appetites, it is planned to
please the strictest family budget.
Although Salmon Week serves
to introduce the salmon-macaroni i
casserole to American tables, it is
fully capable of Bpeaking for it
self and of playing many a re
peat engagement during the
montha to come.
One package elbow macaroni cooked
in salted water until tender. Skin, bon*

salmon. Mix with 1 teaspoon nr.lt. 1

problems for readers of this: pa

Dost Miss Watters: I am a young
married man and until recently I
and my wife iiavo been very happy.
Lately m.y moth*r-inriaw*3 bus
band died and she has moved in
with us. She has made life very
disagreeable for us since she has
been here. It. is hand for me to
put her out a:; she ha i no where
to go and yet I feel that if she
stays she will wreck both of our
lives- What wvrnld you suggest?—
Anawer—You should be just »s
considerate of your wife's mother
as you would be of your own. Al
though it is often concluded that
in-laws are problems when it be
comes necessary to live with them,
yet it wouid not be very human
to throw them out when there is no
place for them to go. You pwrhspe
will find yourself in a similar po
sition some day. Try again to win
tlui friendship and confidence of
your in-law and if you do you will
find hor a help instead of a hi -
Yet, n mother-in-law who in
vades the sanctity of a young
couple’s home should refrain
from undue interference into
the family affairs. Women who
has been active, and still ha o
many youthful years ahead,
must be occupied with some
thing to keep them busy. As a
means toward this end, why not
endeavor to get her interested
in some form of club and social
activity. Then, she will'not have
so much time to bother about
the manner in which your house
hold is run.
Detr Miss Watters: — A few
years ago I went with a fellow
whom I loved very much and I
thought at the time that he was
also very much in love with me.
He jilted me and for two ye rs I
knew nothing of his w-hereabouts.
Recently J met him at a party, he
was there and so was I. New Miss
Watters, this boy has begged me
since having seen me again to
start going with him again as he
says he still loves me and can ex
pluin why he never wrote me and
left as he did- He seems changed
and different and says he has nev
er loved anyone but me and never
will. Shall I trust him again?—
Answer—His actions have been
questionable to say the leat. Don’t
take him too seriously on the
strength of what he says. Although
there is apparently no harm in go
ing to parties with him if you are
both in the habit of going to them
Dear Miss Watters:....I met a
boy recently, who I like very much,
ho says he likes me, and tells nn
he is sincere but I am afraid his
expresion completely gives hi;,:.
r Should I bt lieve what he
tells mo or should J forgot him?
I have had so many disappoint
ments until 1 am almost afraid to
believe or trust anyone any more-,
it seems- What shall I do?—I? M
Answer—Of course you cannot
.«• Yo:vt to believe everything c.'iy
body te Us you- fcu- h a trusting
: utjp. would n.'t take long to cre
pto a series of disillusions- I,eain
Hony-thin*’ about the character and
habits of the boys whom you asso
ciate with before taking any of
thorn too seriously.
Dear Mins Watters—I am writ
ing you for some advice. My prob
lem Li this: I am very much in
love with a boy, but he is insanely
jealous of me. He even gets angry
if I talk to another boy. As I have
said Irfifore, l am very m|uch in love
with him and he is with me, ami
is continually begging me to mar
ry him- What shall I do? Shall I
marry this fellow, knowing he is
jealous or shall I try to give him
up? It will be very hard as I love
him so mnich- —Doubtful
Answer -My dear young lady:
My advice tc you is to forget
about this boy entirely- A jealous
person makes life vpry miserable,
not only for you, but for himself,
and for others- Jf this boy is in
sanely jealous, a you say, it is bet
ter you know it now and avoid
trouble, than to marry him and
make your home life for you and
your family miserable- You may
be very much in love with him
row, but time heals all things and
it would be far better to lot time
heal a broken heert than to have
pm unpleasant situation existing
during the rest of your life.
