It is the special touch by you that adds pleasure to every gift you
?<ve. Everyone likes the new, the unusual and it is the exciting
oods packed in their visible glass containers that make the perfect
Christmas gifts. Select foods that will intrigue the receiver. For
instance, bottles of exotic salad dressings, almond stuffed olives,
capers, rolled anchovies, and a jar of artichoke hearts are a few
ideas to arrange in a gift basket for the man who specializes in
salads. For the snack server, there are exciting cocktail tid-bits,
and unusual spreads, packed in sparkling glass containers. And for
a favorite aunt, jars of honey and jellies make handsome displays
when tied with a bright Christmas-colored ribbon.

Pomanders For Christmas Gifts
- jk .. ■■ mm m
Squeeze your Florida oranges every day for delicious vitamin-C
rich juice but save a few for pomanders — they’re fine Christmas
gifts that you can make yourself. Even in the days of ‘‘good Queen
Bess" pomanders were “efficacious in keeping away musty scents”
from closets and linen shelves. Make them now for their fragrance
is best a few weeks after they are made.
Select thin-skinned oranges (easiest to stick cloves into), or
grapefruit for bigger pomanders, and follow these directions. If
you prefer, you can make your own scents from different spice
1 Florida oranges Powdered orris root
Whole cloves Ground cinnamon
Select firm oranges for making pomanders. With fork tines,
make rows of holes in the skin. Stick whole cloves into the holes
until the rind is completely covered. Roll orange in a mixture of
equal parts of orris root and ground cinnamon. Pat in as much of
the powdered mixture as will adhere to the orange. Wrap the
pomander in tissue paper or other soft paper for several weeks.
Remove the paper, shake off any loose powder, and the pomander
is ready for use in drawers or on linen shelves.
To hang in a closet, crochet a loose circular cradle, or aimply tie
the pomander with a piece of ribbon, ending in a loop.

Now It's Jazz On Scarves
_ _ - -
HOT tunes, cool rhythms, tweet keyboard, all the instrument* of the
orchestra, and all the tongs in record albums have been captured
by scarf designer Vera on a series of mid-winter fashion accessories.
Shown on the wail, is Keyboard; next to it. Orchestra; half-hidden by
the pretty jazz fan, is Record Album.
She is wearing an Orchestra herself. Scarves are silk, hand-screen
printed; six color choices in each; all have hand-rolled hems. Smallest,
not shown is Jazz Concert, a little 18-inch beauty to add to a blouse or
dress. Fun to wear. The newest idea is Wear Your Hobby, don't leave*
It at home. fNS

Trim Yourself at Christmas!
A festive eggnog bowl is as traditionally Christmas as trimming
the tree. You’ll be even gayer knowing that you can enjoy both —
and without the high-calorie penalty you’ve paid in the past for
eggnog nips — by following the low-calorie recipe below for your
Christmas bowl. Non-fat milk and saccharin’s tasty sweetness
without calories will help you trim your figure while you trim
They are economical, too. Saccharin, you know, is 400 times
sweeter than sugar — goes much farther so it costs much less in
giving you sweetness without a single calorie.
Let stand in a bowl or 1 12 saccharin tablets (14 grain)
