When serving fish'fresh or canned---don t forget the little "dress up" touchessprigs of parsley, slices of hard-boiled. eggs, and lemon quartersthey add so much to the appear- ance, making every day foods seem sort, of special. All good cooks know lemons and fish go together--lemon juice br;ngs out all the flavor of the fish. Rub lemon iuice over fish to be baked, broiled or fried. Again--nd thls is a trick worth know- ing--spHnkle a bit of lemon juice on canned salmon or tuna before creaming or scalloping; it adds much to the flavor.

Letters can do that to me! This writer says she enjoys our column--finds it both practlcl -and insplrational--end looks for it the first thing when the paper comes. She said the poem 'Tm Going To' which ap- peared in this column recently, had made her get busy and write an even dozen letters that she had owed for over a year; and she continued, "would you believe it, I have al- ready had responses from eight of the twelve." Isn't it inter- esting to know that one liffle poem has brought so much hap pinessl To know this column is helping others, makes me hap- piest of all! &,  , WAYS TO MAKE PIN MONEY ANECDOTES ODDS 'N ENDS ANOTHER WASTED HOUR Today I spent an hour, Using a hammer and shears; Trying to find if it be true That only the walls have ears.
