Bli,LINGS COUNTY PIONEER W,A00 SPIDOMETER? (Mr. G. J., Bismarck) I'm wondering if a reader can help me out on this question. Is there a way to tell if a speed- ometer has been turned back on a car? DISHWASHER. Mrs-. H. S., Bismarck) For the lady who requested information about electric dish- washers, I can't imagine anyone not liking her machine. I can assure you that this appliance is worth having. I would rather do without any other piece of elec- trical equipment and keep my dishwasher. I would investigate several dif- ferent brands before choosing and also experiment with var- ious detergents. I urge you to go ahead with this purchase as I'm sure you'll never regret it. CAKE MIX USE? /Mrs. A. F. Mandan) My family will consume quant- ities of cookies, but doesn't care much for cakes. As a result, I find myself with quite a few packages of prepared cake mixes. Has any reader eperimented with adding more flour or less liquid so as to use the mix for cookies? AVOCADO? Mrs. E. N. Bismarck) I have an avocado pit in water. The root is six inches long and the stem about the same length. Should it be planted in soil now? How large a pot is need- ed? Thank you. pRESIDENTS POEM (Mrs. J. S., Bismarck) Here is the poem requested by Mrs. D. H., Bismarck. OUR PRESIDENTS IVh.!t stands the lofty Washington Th'tt noble, great, immortal one The elder Adams next we see, :knd Jefferson comes number three, Then Madison is fnurth you know Tbe fifth one on the list, MonrOe; The sixth, then Adams comes again And Jackson, seventh in the truln Van Buren, eighth upon the line, And ttarrison counts number nine And tenth is Tyler in his turn And Polk, the eleventh as we learn The twelfth is Taylor in rotation, The thirteenth Filmore, in succes- sion ; The fourteenth, Pierce has been selected, Buchanan, fifteenth, is elected Sixteenth, Lincoln rules the nation, lohnson, seventeenth, fills the sta- tion As the eighteenth, Grant, two terms serves, Ninteenth Hayes, our honor pre- serves; Twentieth, Garfield, becomes our head; Twenty-first, Artht, succeeds the dead Then Cleveland next was elected Twenty-third, Harrison's elected T,'enty-fourth, Cleveland is re- called; rwenty-fifth, McKinley, twice in- stalled; Twenty-sixth, Roosevelt, strenumls, firm Taft, twenty-seventh, serves his term; Twenty-eighth Wilson, held the place; Harding yields to death's embrace Coolidge follows in his stead.

Now, of course, a line for our new president will have to be added. WILTED SALADS (Mrs. H. J. R., Bismarck) I suggest for a good crisp salad to always store your lettuce in large canisters made of soft plastic (these products are the ones for sale at home parties-- not in stores). Use Thousand Is- land Salad dressing. The plastic products are won- derful for preserving all kinds of foods. (Readers' Trading Post oper- ates as an exchange of ideas be- tween readers.

M., Mandan, who asked where to get Borden's "Memo" to be used in the Better Home and Gardens liquid diet formula, I discovered hat the White Drug Store in Bismarck handles this product Editor's note: The recipe for the Better Homes and Gardens home-made diet formula is as follows: . cup Hemo, 2 cups instant nonfat dry milk (if pack- age suggests 3 tablespoons non- fat dry milk to 1 cup water, use only 1  cups nonfat dry milk in preparing liquid diet) 4 table- spoons salad oil, 1 quart ice- cold water. With spoon, thoroughly com- bine the Hemo, the nonfat dry milk and the salad oil. Pour the ice-cold water in a mixing bowl; sprinkle dry mixture on surface of water. Stir to blend or whip with electric or rotary ,beater until frothy. Keep chilled. Makes 1 qt. Each day's diet is 1 qt. liquid diet plus 1 small orange. SOAP BUBBLES? (Mrs. S. W. Bismarck) Can any of you RTP friends supply me with the recipe for liquid green soap used in child- ren's bubble rings or ppes? Sin- cerest appreciation for army help you can give me. LEARNING PRESIDENTS ........ (Mrs. J. V., Bismarck) To Mrs. D., Bismarck. who requested a poem for re- membering presidents here is something I learned years ago which is not a poem, .but a he]pful means for listing presi- dents by using the first letter o each word to correspond with the first letter of the president's name. "We are just making money (for Washington, Adams, Mrs. Freeman Olmstead (left) and Mrs. John R. McKone beam happily after learning of their husbands' release. Capt, Freeman B. Olnmtead Lt. John R.

Jefferson, Madison and Monroe) at just valuation. Here Tom, please take five pennies but leave Jane, good honest girl, a clean hundred cents. Most re- spectfully to Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower and Ken- nedy." TURKEY STUFFING? E. M.. Mandan) The Ladies Home Journal a few months ago had a recipe for turkey stuffing calling for smoked oysters and ham. I tried it and liked it very much but mislaid the recipe. Could any reader supply me with it? RUG IEELP Mrs F. C., Bismarck) Perhaps I can be of some help to Mrs. M. G., Mandan, who was having trouble keeping her braided rugs flat. It is a good idea to work on two card tables. Work with the wrong sides of the braids up, sewing from right to left. One stitch through the edge of the rug, then one through the edge of the braid, and so on. In that way the thread is not exposed to wear. After a few braids have been sewed around, tack a piece of board the length of the center on the side you have up. This keeps your work straight. Some lace the braids together, but I prefer to use strong cotton but- tons and carpet thread and take half inch stitches into the mater- ial. I also use short threads-- not more than a half a yard-- at a time, in case of ripping, and it is also easier on one's arms. When going around the ends of your rugs, push the ,braids back, giving them ease, and being care- ful not to pull your thread too tight. With the finished part on tke table, one can keep it patted down so the edges will not start curling. (Readers' Trading Post operates as an exchange of ideas between readers.
