If di- rections are followed carefully, you will come out with a dandy batch of soap plus a full mea- sure of satisfaction such as one seldom gets in these days of "prefabricated" almost every- thing. Use fat from beef. lamb or pork Strain through a very fine strainer or ordinary one lined with several thicknesses of cheesecloth. Add twice as much water as fat and V2 teaspoon bak- ing soda to each 2 cups of fat. Boil for about 10 minutes. Skim off froth collected on the top; set aside overnight outside or in a cold place to harden (im- purities will separate out into the water. Discard the water). Melt the hardened fat and then allow to cool to lukewarm. While the fat is cooling, dis- solve I can lye in 3 pints cold water, using an enamel or iron pot and stir with a wooden spoon or smooth stick. The lye will heat the water quite hot. When the water and lye solu- tion is partly cold, add Vz cup borax and '/4 cup household arn- monm and V4 cup bleach and 2 table spoons sugar. Etir until dis- solved. Cooling is important! When both the fat and the solution are cooled to lukewarm add 11 cups of fat to the solution and stir steadily for 20 minutes. It will be a tan color and quite thick. Pour into molds ( paper milk cartons cut lengthwise make good ones} and allow to stand for a day or more m moderate room temperature before cutting. Allow to "ripen'" several weeks before using. POTATO RECIPES? (Mrs. G, O Bismarck) My husband is quite a meat and potatoes man. Could some readers send in recipes to spruce up the spuds? I get so tired of the same old thing every meal. MORE WII~ATIJESS CAK~ (Mrs. B. G Mandan) About the wheatless cake: a few years ago I was visiting in Denver and was taken to a coffee party where a very un- usual and delicious cake was served. I complimented the host- ess and was told she used mash ed banana instead of flour--in SALLY OREMLAND the same proportion. I have not tried it, but the lady could make up a small cake and see how it tastes. It was my impression that any favorite recipe would be suitable; the cake I tasted had an orange icing. * * * CRACKED EGG (Mrs. A. D Glen Ullin) Someone recently gave direc- tionstions for boiling a cracked eg~" which required about five different operations. I'd scramble mine first! However, there's an easy way to boil a cracked egg; wrap it in waxed paper, twist- ing the ends of the paper. Just be sure the egg is thoroughly covered by the waxed paper and it can be boiled just as if it were whole. FARMJ~RS DOING MORE PENCIL WORK IN 1960 Farmers in Nbrth Dakofa are. pt~tting in more time on pencil work in managing their oper- ations than ever before. At least ,the extension service people at NDAC are convinced Lhis is so after roeeting with more than 39,000 farm folks this year where management prob- lems were the main topics dis- CUSse~d. "~'he resort for this shift to nitre careful planning of farm- ing enterprises .and closer figur- ing around the edges is simple-- its hard to make a satisfactory farm income without exerting a lot of good business judgement. Bjorne Naaden, farm manage- ment economist of the Exten- sion Service, believes farm op- erators in the state have become aware that the successful farmer is the one who puts his capital and labor resources to work on the crop and livestock enter- pa-ise~ that can 'give him the greatest return. Fitting livestock to the farm unit, deciding on crops to grow, managing i~.come from the farm, confrolling weeds, keepiRg farm business records, profitable use of fSrtilizer and other manage- ment topics were discussed by farmers and extension workers at local meetings. Naaden considers the keeping of adeq, uate; farm reet~rds as one activity that can make the Job of planning and deciding farm operations easier and more pro- fitable.
