BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER ! :ii~i ELECTION RESULTS CONNOT BE VOIDED In an opinion to Idean N. Locken, Nelson County State's' Attorney, the Attorney General has ruled that a governing body cannot declare an election void and throw out the re- sults. The question arose when a few irregularities were reported in a bond issue election in the McVille Community Special School District No. 46 in Nelson County. The bond issue passed and so did the pro- position to increase the debt limit. Later six alleged irregularities cropped up, involving four ballots voted on the steps of the polling phce and two taken to the home of bedfast resident. Atty. Gen. Les- lie R. Burgum ruled that the fouJ ballots voted on the steps of the polling place were valid and should be counted, however the other two Were not valid and should be void When the irregularities became known, the board of education of the district resolved to rescind the results of the election. It is the opinion of this office tha~ the board of education does not have the ~uthority to rescind the election by resolution, Burgum said. He add- ed that if this could be done, then the will of the voters could be de- feated from time to time by the governing body that was not in ~ympathy with the wishes of the voters. -[~, CLEANING ALUMINUM (Mrs. D. C. S Mandan) In answer to Mrs. S. K. of Man- dan's problem of cleaning aluminu,n, my suggestion is: rhubarb. By cook- ing rhubarb in your aluminum pots and pans, you will be able to enjoy delicious rhubarb sauce and also see your utensils come out looking bright and shinier than ever before. Rhubarb sauce: cut stalks into ~" lengths and measure into measur- ing cup. Put half as much suga: as you have rhubarb. Add water to cover. Place over medium heat and cook till soft ana done. It should be watched closely, adding more w,~ter if needed. T would sugges~ ~ut~ing a cover over the mixture for ~bout five minutes so the steam circulates to every spot on your pan and cover. CLOUDY TEA? (Mrs. E. T Bismarck) I enjoy serving iced tea in the summer, but I have difficulty with the tea clouding up every time I make it. Could someone give me a clue on how to prepare clear iced tea? DILL PICKLES CMrs. S. M Mandan) Here m a recipe for dill pickles in answer to a request in the Trading Post. Dill pickles: 35 to 40 small to medi- um cucumbers, 2 tablespoons mixed spices, V4 pound dill, 2 cups Wash and dry cucumbers. Put a lay- er of dill and half of the spices in a stone jar. Add the cucumbers. Put remaining spices and dill on top of the cucumbers. Boil salt, water and vinegar for two minutes. Cool to room temperature and pour over cucumbers. Cover with a plate .weighed down to hold the cucum- bers under the brine, t?~emove scum each day. The pickles are ready for canning when they are crisp, uni- form in color and well-flavored with dill. This requires approximately from two to four weeks. Pack cured pickles in hot jars, cover with hot brine and seal at once. You can strain the brine in which pickles are cured and boil for five minutes, or make fresh brine. Kosher dill pickles: add one small clove garlic, 1 bayleaf, teaspoon mustard seed, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 piece red pepper and b~ cup vine- gar to 1~ cups strained brine. Boil two minutes and pour over plain dill pickles after they are packed in hot jars. STICKING SKILLETS {Mrs. J. B Bismarck) ~For the lady who }s havlng trouble with her frying pan sticking: We solved our problem by using soap instead of detergents -- detergents seem to clean thoroughly but they do cause skillets to stick. Also, we never wash the pan we use for fry- ing bacon, just clean out with paper towels. The same goes for omelet pans. I keep one skillet that I use for things like gravy or sauces and this is the only one I wash. I've read that French chefs do it this way and it works fine but you need several l pans. SW~,ET POTATO DISH? (Mrs. A. B Mandan) My husband visited in another ctiy recently and had occasion to eat a dish which he thinks was made of sweet potatoes and pineapple. He thought it was delicious and I would like to make one like it if any read- er could supply a recipe. MORE STICKING SKILLETS (Mrs. J. S Bismarck) Someone recently asked how to prevent eggs and the like from stick- ing to skillets. This trick was taught me by my mother. First, wash and rinse the skillet throughly and dry by placing over low fire on the range. If scouring pads are used, the skillet must be thoroughly washed and rinsed after scoumng as the pads seem to add to the sticking. BERRy RECIPES? (Mrs. A. W Mandan) Would some oflhe readers be kind enouh to send in some.~recipes for desserts using berries - raspberries blackberries ,blueberrles and straw- berries? Any and all kinds would be appreciated - gelatine, ,baked ~uddings, pies, shortcakes, berry cobblers, berry rolls, desserts wRh 'Math Can Be Fascinat ing' -- Students Agree irn "Is he right?" University of Illinois Prof. Harlan G. H. Bertram (right) asks the class of Third, Fourth and Fifth graders who recently par- ticipated in a Mathematics Workshop at Mary college, Annunciation Priory. Bertram had just asked Prof. David A. Page (left) to solve a fraction problem using colored wooden sticks. Bismarck public a~d parochial school teachers who observed the sessions noted that within a matter of a few hours the youngsters were manipulating fractions with as much pleasure and accomplishment as ever a baby fondled wooden bleeks.

Students were encouraged to make intelligent guesses, eliminate false statements and zero-in on the right answer through imaginative sleuthing. Central theme of the University of Illinois Arithmetic Project is that the study of mathematics should be ~ fascinating adventure for children. "Frequently pupils should be encouraged to make their own mathematical'discoveries," Page ssys.

The project is concerned with students of ordinary ability as well as with gifted students. whipped cream, etc or using raw fruit. ZIPPER HINT (Mrs. L.

Just the sight of the Ice *s a big help in it- self. When they finished playing with it, I set the fan behind the ice to blow cold air. Since cold suppers are the order of the day, try some experiments with jellied desserts such as grated carrots and crushed pineapple with the apple flavor, or fruit cocktail with lime, canned pears with cherry and so on. A big meat loaf can be chilled and sliced for ~ndwiches for two or three days.
