Limit of 20,000 Feet for Such Trans
actions Is Placed by Price
Fixing Committee.
Retail sales of lumher, in amounts
smaller than 20,000 feet, may be made
by sawmills under an extended inter
pretation of price regulations made
yesterday at Washington and commun
icated to H. B. Van Duzer, chairman
of the fir production board.
. By the recent price announcement
fears were aroused that mills accus
tomed to doing some retail business or
maintain distributing yards, as
many mills do, would have to drop
this business or sell at wholesale prices.
In reality such was the effect of the
regulation promulgated by heads of
the lumber section of the War Indus
tries Board.
The change in the -original rule was
telegraphed to Mr. Van Duzer by
Charles Edgar, acting director of lum
her for the War Industries Board, as
"Price fixing committee has modi
fled ruling as to retail sales from mill
yards. Mills allowed to charge reason
able advance for retail services In
amounts less than car lots, of approxi
mately 20,000 feet."

alty for Failure.
Persons who drop glass on the streets
of Portland and fail to remove it will

penalty for failure to remove broken
glass from the streets or sidewalks.
For several months there has been
general complaint that milkmen and
grocery delivery clerks fail to pick up
broken glass caused by dropping of
bottles. Following the passage of the
ordinance Mayor Baker announced that
it will be strictly enforced.

MRS. E. B.
JUDGE that you want wheatless

Sour Cream Cookies One cup thick
sour cream, cup sugar, cup syrup
(or cup honey In place of the sugar
and syrup), one egg yolk, one teaspoon
salt. 3 teaspoon soda, hi teaspoon nut
meg or vanilla extract or one teaspoon
grated orange or lemon rind as may be
preferred. Beat the cream tbut not
enough to turn to butter) with a Dover
egg beater. Beat in all the other in
gredients but the soda: then mix in
"flour to roll." using instead of wheat
flour a mixture of equal parts of barley
and corn flour, or oat flour and corn
flour as may be most convenient. The
amount of flour will vary quite a little.
Be careful potato get the mixture too
stiff, but Just firm enouah to handle
when chilled. Adding too much flour is
what makes hard rookies instead of
crisp cookies. Add the soda with the
Considerable skill In rolling Is re
quired and both time and trouble may
be saved by either putting the mixture
on a greased pan in flattened Palis or
by teaspoonful as drop cookies or by
making the dough into a roll (handling
very lightly with) floured hands and
cutting 4-inch slices off the roll. These
placed cut side up will spread a little
and give shapes that are not perfectly
regular, but the method saves time and
the cookies taste Just as good. They
are a little less sweet than -pre-war"
cookies, but if well made are very light,
crlsn and delicate. The tops may be
decorated by chopped or halved nuts if
Ice Cream. Three cups milk, one cup
thin cream or 1H cups whipped cream,
two eggs, V cup sugar, H cup corn
syruD or honey. M. teaspoon salt, one
tablespoon vanilla.
Beat the egg yolks with sugar and
syrup or honey. Scald the milk in a
double boiler, pour it on the first mix- J
ture. return to the pan and cook a few I
minutes, stirring all the time. Remove
from the fire, let cool, add the cream
and flavoring. Place in the freeser and
freexe to a mush. When half frozen
add the egg yolks beaten stiff with the
salt and finish freezing. Pack and let
stand to ripen.
For a plainer cream use oniy one
egg, or substitute rich milk for part
of the cream.
For a very plain cream one quart
rich milk mixed with one egg yolk and
the swetening and flavoring may be
made lukewarm and mixed with one
Junket tablet dissolved in one table
spoon water. Turn at once into the
freezer and let coagulate before freez
ing. Then freeze in the usual way.
This very plain Ice cream seems less
plain if colored and flavored with car
amel and vanilla or with mapleine and
is easily made.
A small amount of ice cream can be
easily frozen in a large baking powder
can set in a lard pall full of ice and
salt. This is a useful plan for an in
valid or "Just for two," as it takes
very little ice. Beat up the mixture
once or twice while freezing. It may
well be set in the flreless cooker while
freezing in order to save ice and keep
it in good condition until serving time.
