BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Conducted by COME DESSERT8 (Mrs. C. C Mandan) For the lady who asked for dessert recipes calling for cof- fee here are two favorites given to me by friends. Coffee tarts: prepare six bak- ed tart shells. Combine 1 cup cream or evaporated milk, 6 tablespoons sifted all-purpose flour, 2/3 cup sugar, teaspoon salt. Stir until smooth. Add to 2 cups hot, strong coffee. Cook and stir the mixture over low heat until it thickens, about 20 minutes. Poor part of it over 2 beaten eggs. Return this to pan. stir and cook it for 2 or 3 minutes over low heat to permit the eggs to thicken slightly. Add 2 table- spoons butter. Cool, then add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Fill the tart shells. Chill them. Serve with whipped cream. Coffee chiffon pie: Bake a 9 inch pie shell or make a crumb crust. Filling: soak 1 tablespoon gelatin in Y4 cup cold water. Dissolve it in 1 cups strong boiling coffee. Add 1/3 cup sugar, cup milk Cook and stir over a low heat until hot. Do not boil. In a separate dish, beat 3 egg yolks, ~/4 cup sugar. Pour part of the hot mixture over them. Return it to the pan and cook and stir for 2 minutes over low heat. Do not boil. Cool ingredients until they are thick. Add teaspoon vanilla. Whip ingredients with a wire whip until they are fluffy. Fold into gelatin mixture 3 stiffly beaten egg whites and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Pour into the pie shell. Chill, GIN~READ I)OUGHNI~ BALLS? (Mrs. N. P Bismarck) Will someone please send in a recipe for gingerbread dough- nut balls? $ S FOAM RUBBER MATTRESS (Mrs. J. H Bismarck) For the reader wishing infor- mation on foam rubber mattress- es: We bought a top quality very firm foam rubber mattress two years ago. It has remained very firm and comfortable, but I would not buy another. I feel that the additional cost over a conven- tional mattress of comparable quality is not compensated for by any important advantage. SALLY OREMLAND It has the disadvantage of not holding thick blankets in place securely over the sleeper, because it is a much thinnner mattress than the conventional type and doesn't have the weight to grip the blanket edge firmly. Also when one tucks thick blankets under the mattress in making the bed, a clumsy uneven ap- pearance results because of the lack of weight in the mattress. Some advantages are that it is a very light mattress to handle for vacuuming, never needs turn- ing, and, except when heavy blankets are tucked under, it presents a very neat surface which never needs '~plumping up.'" HOME DYING? (Mrs. C. S Mandan) I would like to dye a bedspread in my washing machine, but am not sure how to get the color dark enough. (It is now a faded pink; I would like it to be a deep rose). Also, how does one get all the color out of the mach- ine so it won't run on clothing washed afterward? FOOD HINTS (J. L Bismarck) Here are some food hints rd like to share with readers. Currant jelly added to red cab- bage that is being cooked, gives it a wonderful flavor and adds good color. Add strips of onion, green pep- per and ham to a plain omelet and you have the filling for a western sandwich. Brown the veketables and meat slightly be- fore adding to the eggs. A good trick with very thin steaks with little fat is to dip them into French dressing or salad oil before broiling or pan frying. Mince some parsley and green onions and add to eggs you are scrambling. Fresh flavor! BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS? My son will be celebrating his seventh birthday soon. I won- der if any readers could supply me with ideas for a menu differ- ent from the usual cake and ice cream and for unusual games the children would enjoy.

ALMOST EVERYBODY HAS LIFE INSURANCE North Dakota families owned 487,000 life insurance policies providing $L218,000,000 of pro- tection at the start of this year, a new high record, the Institute of Life Insurance reports. This compares with $1,0/8,000,- (X)0 owned in this state the year before and $530,000,000 at the start of 1950. The ten-year rise in this state was 139 percent. "The past few years have seen the greatest addition to the bul- wark of U. S. family financial protection through life insurance in all our history," Holgar J. Johnson, Institute president com- mented. "In just five years we have seen over $200,000,000,00G of life insurance added, an amount equal to the total in force in the U. S. at any time up to 1948. What is more, a large part of today's life insurance is set up under planned family pro- grams, with much of it arranged for income payment." Of the total life insurance owned January 1 in North Da- kota, $932,000,000 was in 304,000 ordinary life policies. Purchases of new insurance of this type in this state amounted to $143,000,000 in 1959, exclusive of credit life insurance. An additional $2,000,000 of life insurance protection was owned at the start of the year in this state in 8,000 industrial policies, the type generally bought at the door in small units. Another $196,000,000 was in group life insurance in this state, under 78,000 individual certifi- cates. In addition, there was $88,000,- 000 of credit life insurance, un- der 97,000 individual policies and certificates in this state. For the nation as a whole, life insurance ownership was at a record $542,128,000,000 on Janu- ary -, under 274,987,000 policies, an average of about five policies per family. The aggregate own- ed was $46,192,000,000 more than a year before and two and one- half times the amount owned at the start of 1950. This brought per family ownership for the U. S. to $9,500. The average per- insured family is $11,900. In this state the per family ownership was $6,400. Connecticut and Delaware led the nation in family ownership of life insurance at the start of the year, each with $13,500 per family. Next in order were New Jersey, with $12,700 per family and Hawaii with $12,100 per family.

Regionally, the Middle Atlan- tic States report the greatest ag- gregate of life insurance in force, with the Eas* North Central States next. As fol ncrease in ownership over the past decade, percentagewise, the Pacific States led, with the Mountain States next. {D RECORD NUMBER COVERED BY HEALTH INSURANCE The number oz person m North Dakota with health insurance reached a new high of 446,00~ at the end of 1959, the Health In- surance Institute reported today. This was an increase of nine per cent over the 1958 year-end total. The report was based on the 14th annual Health Insurance Council survey of health insur- ance coverage in the U. S which revealed that nearly 128 million Americans, or 72 per cent of the total civilian population, were protected by health insurance as of December 31, 1959. One hour of farm labor pro- duces 4 times as much food and other crops as it did in 1919-21. The average North Dakota farmer in 1959 had a net income from farming operations of $3,- 371, compared with $4,224 in 1958, USDA reports. /4z/CE.R~ A@E YOU TAK/ /e ME. ? ~V~ANWHIL/~ . F. U.
