Nimc Ambulance! for Wives.

phanages, libraries and any number

" named by husbands after their wives
In Omaha there is the Wattles Me
morial parish house, the Millard Me
morial organ at the First Presbyte
rian church and in Council Bluffs the
lennie Edmunson Memorial hospi
tal. Other splendid memorials ' have
been founded in honor of women who
have passed away.
Now we are apt to have monuments
actively doing service for the living
women. It is becoming popular
wherever Red Cross ambulances are
ilonated by wealthy men to name
these ministering agents after the
wives of the donors. For instance,
from Chicago there have been sent
-imbulances bearing the name of Mme.
Cyrus McCormick, Mrs. Lawrence
Armour, Grace Mary Meeker and
Soon" we may be hearing that an
ambulance bearing the name of Mrs.
Charles T. Kountze, who has been so
untiring tn per devotion to the Red
Cross, has gone on its errand of
mercy to the battlefield or there may
he one bearing the name of Mrs.
. Ward Burgess, Mrs. Gould Died or
other women whose husbands are ac
tive in the local Red Cross chanter.
A $12,000 ambulance would certainly
be a token of esteem in the eyes of
any woman, some rich young Croe
sua might even seek to find favor in
the eyea of his beloved by giving an
ambulance in her name. Whether any
ambulances will go from Omaha don'
on to the battle front is, of course,
atill a question, but no doubt at least
one or two will be sent in addition
" to the one which our local Red Cross
chapter has been requested to furnish,
It is not at all improbable that if
any . others are sent they will bear
the names of prominent Omaha

nouncement made today by Mri.

her daughter, Irene, one of the "Coad
twins," to Dr. T. E. Dailey. Wedding

Frozen Dessert I.
With the hot dayt of May come
thoughts of cold desserts for dinner;
and at the top of the list of cold des
serts in the American household is
the frown delicacy, ice cream, .ice, or
frozen pudding. The making of ice
cream is a task requiring considerable
labor if the housewife has no one but
herself to carry out all the ttept;,but
I know one busy mother who con'
sidert ice cream the easiest dessert
to make, because her M-year-old son
assumes all the responsibility of the
freezing. There is no doubt that the
home made product is cheaper, than
the bought one, always discounting
the labor factor.
The value of simple ice ceam in
the diet is much thf same as the value
of milk or cream; and their value is
ranked very high. The only possible
objection to frozen' desserts in the
diet are the dangers of taking cold
food into the digestive tract, chilling
it, and interfering with its work. This
objection may be overcome by form
ing the habit ot eating frozen loou
slowly.. Even the most conservative
of authorities on the feeding of chil
dren recommend ice cream in the
diet after the fifth year; and the use
of a very simple ice cream very oc
casionally even before the fifth year.
A second possible objection to rich
ice cream it the same that would be
made to the eating of very rich pud
dingsthey may interfere with diges
tion. This objection, of course, is not
true of the plainer frozen mixtures.
Women who are well informed on
style matters already know, that high
shoes are to be worn during the sum
mer for all occasions and white is to
be the predominating feature.
In this display of white boots, women
- who crave the distinction
in fashion will find the favored new
styles here in smart white

Readers are cordially invited to
ask Mist Gross any questions
about household economy upon
which ahe may possibly give help,
iul advice; they are also invited to
give suggestions from their expe
rience that may be helpful to
others meeting the same problems.
Cook books differ in their classifi
cation of the innumerable recipes for
frozen desserts. Two or three main
kinds are generally recognized. The
ice creams include all recipes, having
a cream or custard basis. If the cus-
ard is rich with egg yolks, the cream
is French ice cream; if the custard
is lest rich, the product is American
ice cream; and if a straight cream
basis is used, we have Philadelphia
ice cream. The ices are frozen fruit
sirups; the sherbets, fruit sirupt plus
beaten egg white, or with a partial
milk basis. A mousse is flavored
whipped cream frozen without any
turning; and a parfait is similar to a
mousse except tnat it is coppea wun
whipped cream and served in a spe
cial tall, slender glass.
Directions For Freezing.
" Choose an ice cream freezer of
standard make. The most satisfac
tory consist of a metal container with
in a wooden bucket. There are pat
ented freezers on the market which
presumably freeze creams without
any turning; but from experience, and
testimony of others who have tried
them, they are not perfectly satisfac
tory. Set the freezer in a dishpan, ad
just the parts, and see that the handle
will turn. Four mixture into metal
container, put on cover and adjust
handle finally. Then, and not before,
pack with ice and salt The ice
should be crushed to the size of a
walnut, for large pieces of ice inter
fere with the turning of the appara
tus and retard the freezing, for they-
melt alowly. The easiest method of
crushing ice it to place it in a gunny
sack on a cement floor and pound
it with a wooden ice mallet The salt
should be used in the proportion of
one part salt to three parti ice for
everything but mousses and parfaits,
for which a one to two proportion it
better. It is worth while to measure
the ice and 'salt with bowls, for these
proportions have been proved by
After the freezer is packed, turn the
handle slowly and steadily until the
mixture seems to be frozen. From
fifteen to twenty minutes is usually
required. If a freezer is only part
tull the ice and salt packing need not
extend much above the level of the
contents. A freezer should never be
filled more than three-fourths full as
the contents expand in freezing.
After the cream is frozen, remove
dasher and crank, and cork up hole
in the top of the can. Drain off
brine from around can, and repack
with ice and salt to cover the top
of the can. Cover with newspapers
and carpet or gunny tacks, and allow
to stand about two hourt. Be very
careful in removing cover of can, to
wipe off all salt and ice water.
Recipet for Icet and Sherbett.
Below are given recipes for some
standard ices aad sherbets. It is well
to remember, however, that any ice
becomes a sherbet if stiffly beaten egg
white it added when the ice is nearly
frozen. Allow one egg white to
one quart of frozen mixture. Any
woman can invent innumerable ices
and use up whatever fruit juice she
may have on hand. Any truit, ex
cept the very acid ojies, such as
cherry, require tome lemon juice, and
anv mixture to be frozen should be
more highly flavored and sweetened
that! if it were to be served unfrozen.
Thereason is that the cold seems to
dull our taste so that we require more
flavor to be satisfied.
