BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Resulting from Conducted by SALLY OREMLAND POTATO RECIPES (J. M Mandan) For the lady who wanted dif- ferent potato recipes, here is one of our favorites. Potato Balls: mashed potatoes (left from dinner), 12 squares of good melting cheese (cut this in about to V4 inch squares), 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water, 1 cup corn flakes, crush- ed fine. deep fat for frying. Place a tablespoon of the mashed pota- toes in palm of left hand and flatten. Then put 1 square of cheese on potato and form ball. These can be made in the morning and put in the refriger- ator. When ready to cook, dip potato ball in beaten egg and roll in finely crushed corn flakes and drop in hot deep fat. Fry quickly so they will hold shape. Drain on paper towel and keep hot in warm oven until ready to serve. You'd better make two for each person--they alv~ays come back for seconds. (Mrs. C. H Bismarck) For Mrs. G. O. who wanted potato recipes, here are two we are especially fond of. Lorain Potatoes: butter a bak- ing dish. Peel and slice potatoes, add a little minced onion, salt and pepper and dot with butter. Bake with cover until tender. No water is needed for the po- tatoes cook in their own steam. Spiced potatoes: peel and dice potatoes, using fewer than for regular boiled potatoes. Place in saucepan. Add water just to cover and add onion sliced or cut fine, diced or chopped celery, 3 or 4 peppercorns, a small piece of bay leaf and salt and 2 table- spoons butter. Simmer until ten- der. Add water if necessary to keep from boiling dry. This is an old recipe used in our family from great-grandmother down. . * , DAFFODILS? (Mrs. R. B Bismarck) I recently saw an item some- where that said daffodils do not grow well in North Dakota. As a newcomer to the state, I won- der if some gardener could ver- ify this for me? ,* , SCISSORS HINT (Mrs. W. S Bismarck) When scissors are dull, run the blades across the neck of a small bottle in the same position as though you were attempting to cut the neck off the bottle. ANTIQUE GOLD FINISH (E. C Mandan) I would like advice on how to put an antique gold finish on a ready made unfinished wood picture frame---to be used later for a mirror. Thank you. ,* . NUT BREAD? (Mrs. J. V Bismarck) I have tried several different recipes for nut bread but they all seem to be a little gluey when baked. Would some one please share a tested recipe with me? If there is a special trick to baking nut bread, I would cen- tainly appreciate knowing it.

DON q Fund Shortage A cutback in investigation work for the Garrison diver- sion program has started, follow- ing a reduction in funds allocat- ed by Congress for the study. G. A. Freeman. Bismarck, pro- jeers manager for the Bureau of Reclamation in North Dakota, said his staff of about 70 will be reduced by 16 between now and Jan. 15. Freeman said jobs in other bureau projects around the re- gion have been offered most of those l~eing dropped because of the cutback.
