Colorful Fruit Desserts
We may like meat and vegetables
prepared the same way day after
aay, dui mere s
at least one type
of food in which
we like plenty of
variety. Yes, des
serts, of course!
Now that the war is over and we
can go back to many of our fa
vorite foods, with rationing permit
ting, we'll still have to hold of? on
desserts that still take it easy on the
sugar canister.
My advice to you, in this matter
of desserts, is to concentrate on
fruits, both fresh and canned. They
contain sweetening and will not re
quire too much extra sugar. Then,
too, there are lots of time-saving
tricks you can apply to dessert mak
ings, like chilling them or using
biscuit mixture.
Select several of these desserts
and do try them on your family.
Serve them and be proud:

Sugar-Shy Gingerbread
With sugar scarce, are you at wit's end to know what to have for
dessert? Then you’ll love this Sugar-Shy Gingerbread that takes only
% cup of sugar and % cup of molasses to sweeten a large loaf. Its
spicy goodness and moist, tender crumb make it grand eating just as
it comes from the pan.
Here are 4 different ways to dress it up, according to the ingredients
available. Serve it wdth custard sauce, stewed fruit, or sandwich style
with cream cheese and a little grated orange rind for the filling. For
extra-special occasions, top it with ice cream. And if your women’s
club or church has a supper on the calendar, make an extra pan to
take along.

On dress-up evenings in most
towns there is considerable bed
room muttering from the distaff
side about the quality of harness
that goes underneath the feminine
finery seen by the outside world
Has been ever since the War Pro
duction Board decided rubber, cot
ton and steel strips could be put t»
somewhat more rugged combat ust
than they would get in foundation
garments- So naturally there was
matronly hope that Army releases
of large amounts of cotton and rub
ber would enable manufacturers to
correct matters- Feminine anticip;-*
tion was further whetted by a wide
ly publicized WPB statement to ths
effect that twoway stretch girdles
would be back by November.
The trouble with OPA pricing in
this reconversion period is literally
the same fault founid in wartime
corhetry—no stretch.
In practically every field, apparel
automobiles, foods, gadgets, building \
materials, that fact shows again and
again- All production costs are up,
especially labor costs, and the OPA
partially recognizes this. Yet man
ufacturers are not being permitted
to make those price adjustments j
necessary to profitable business and
the sort of volume production w-hich
makes jogs.
Until the government forces OPA
to adc! the sort of elasticity that is
needed obth in feminine fashions and
the national economy, reconversion is
likely to be slow
There is not much logis in deny
ing people things they did without
while victory was in the making.
Why stave off the prosperity that
comes when there is a demand for
goods, a willingness to make them,
money to buy them, and a great
need for the jobs those factors ere'
Then came disappointment. The
Corset and Brassiere Ass. of Am
erica openly declared that no such
supplies wuold be available in any
thing like volume qcantities. Dis-1
appointment could be traced back to
that perennial disappointment, the
OPA- Foundation makers said,
“While manufacturers are now freed
from regulations which formerly re
stricted the buying of materials, they
are not freed from price regulations
which determine the types of garm
ents they may produce-”
