Here's the way to make Spanish
omelet Four eggs, four table
spoons hot water, one-half teaspoon
salt, one-eighth teaspoon pepper,
three tablespoons butter, two table
spoons chopped onion, two cups
canned tomatoes, one tablespoon
chopped pepper, one-eighth tea
spoon salt, one teaspoon capers if
you like them. Beat eggs slightly,
add hot water, salt and pepper.
Melt one tablespoon butter in ome
let pan, when sizzling add egg mix
ture, and cook slowly until brown
on the under side, add tomato sauce
turn and serve. For the tomato
sauce, melt two tablespoons of but
ter, add onion and cook until a
golden yellow; add tomato, pepper
and salt and boil five minutes; add
Made with Carrots.
Carrot marmalade is considered
by many equal to orange marma
lade, and it is not difficult to make.
Put two lemons, which have been
scrubbed, into the scales, and add
enough carrots to weigh a pound
and a quarter. Then grate the car
rots and cook them until tender,
and cut the lemons in bits and cook
in a double boiler for fifteen min
utes. Drain the carrots and meas
ure the carrots and lemons com
bined. Add an equal amount of
granulated sugar, and boil carefully
until thick which will be only a
few minutes. Put in jars as you
would orange marmalade.
One quart milk (heated), one cup
raisins, one cup sugar, two cups
cooked rice, three eggs. Cinnamon
and salt to taste. Add butter size of
an egg. Place in buttered pudding
dish and bake for one hour.
One cup cold boiled rice, pressed
through a vegetable sieve. Add two
tablespoons flour, a beaten egg and
salt, nutmeg and cayenne pepper to
taste. Roll into small balls and
cook in boiling, salted water until
they are hardened on the outside.
Rice balls may be served in soup
or with a meat stew.
Allow one cup of sauce, one cup
cracker crumbs moistened in one-
fourth cup butter, for two cups of
meat or fish or any of the mix
tures you may use. Line a deep
baking dish with one-fourth of the
crumbs, add a layer of mixture, a
layer of sauce, one-fourth of
crumbs, another layer of each and
cover with the remaining half of
the crumbs. Bake till crumbs are
brown. Oysters may be used alone,
with their juice and the crumbs.
Weight four pounds of rhubarb
(after the leaves and waste have
been removed), cut up in short
pieces, and cover with same weight
sugar. Leave till next day. Chop
finely one-half pound of candied
peel, and mix this and three tea
spoons of ground ginger with the
rhubarb. Bring to the boil, and
cook until a nice red color proba
bly about one hour. Put in jars or
glasses in the usual way.
COOK PLAN HEARD
AT FARMER MEET
(Continued from First Page.)
dition, little future can be seen for
a better wheat price. It is essential
that the farmers cooperate and do
something for themselves. These
are some of the highlights of his
Mr. Smith asked that farmer or
ganizations of the county take ac
tion on the plan, and let Mr. Cook
and others know of their wishes re
Mr. Smouse and Mr. Hill both
told of the successful operation of
their local wheat marketing units
last year, stressing the benefits re
ceived by members and non-mem
bers. The cooperatives have offered
a price every day of the year, have
never been out of the market, and
have never refused to buy all the
wheat the farmer has had to offer,
they said. Members have had the
advantage of two percent cheaper
money than non-members, and this
year will get a better price on sacks
through the buying power the as
sociation has been able to exert
Mr. Hill said that the reserve fund
of the Pendleton local, created
when it was organized, is intact and
will probably be turned back to the
members after the stockholders'
meeting in the near future, and
that the unit showed a profit on its
operations for the year.
Mr. Hill recently returned from
Portland and Salem where he had
been active with a committee from
the Eastern Oregon Wheat league
and North Pacific Grain Growers
in attempting to get a reduction in
grading discounts. The deductions
from the farmers' wheat check that
have been in effect, set when wheat
Bold for $2.00 a bushel, are consid
ered out of line now that wheat is
selling for 46 cents. The state mar
keting agent and other men con
nected with the grain trade have
recognized the justice of the com
mittee's demands and it is probable
that the concessions asked for will
be granted, Mr. Hill said.

Tribute to Mrs. Bauman

last Tuesday evening honoring the
memory of its late departed presi
dent, Mrs. J. D. Bauman. The trib

fully portrayed Mrs. Bauman's ster

Some of you may have read a poem
by Kobert Browning. "Pippa Passes."
Pippa was a sweet and innocent girl,
sinking with the joy of life as she pass
ed down the street of her village. In
different houses as she passed by, va
rious people were affected by her sing
ing in different ways. A sick man was
cheered; a thief about to rob his bene
factor, desisted: a desperate woman
about to commit suicide thought better
of it. All these things Pippa accom
plished unknowing, by just being herself.
So it is with our companion who has
been called from us. She was always
preeminently herself. She never made
any pretense of being something she
was not; therein lying her great charm.
a native modesty and nobility of charac
ter whicn not only never said anything
ill of another, but never even thought
it. She never sought the easy task.
When our Auxiliary had in hand an
undertaking which necessitated work in
the kitchen, there you would always
find her unobstrusive, helpful, sweet.
Once when someone remonstrated with
ner for doing so much, she replied, "We
must always have our Mary s and Martha's."
At Christmas time the hostesses had
planned a simple paper tree for decora
tion, but when they arrived they found
tne table all set ana a Deautituily dec
orated little evergreen tree for a cen
terpiece. Little thoughtful attentions
such as this were characteristic of her.
It was at this meeting that moat of us
first learned of her illness, which she
had long suspected and had bravely
kept to herself, which in its subsequent
development took her from this world.
From the nature of the malady we
could not wish her extended suffering,
yet we could not wish her to leave us.
To stare Death in the face and see
him approaching nearer and nearer; to
leave her loved ones bereft after thev
had depended so closely upon her for so
many years : to leave just when life had
become relatively easy and full of in
teresting activities, was in itself no
easy thing to do. But frail little body
that she was, and racked with pain, she
bore it stoicly; and though her heart
must nave lamented for the sake of her
loved ones, she remained calm. We
know she gained strength from her re
ligious faith, and she could truly de
serve the praise: "Well done, thou
good and faithful servant."
One of our charter members, diving
farthest away of any, yet she never for
years missed a meeting of the Auxil
iary, but once when for some reason no
one could bring her to town. Her
faithfulness, her modesty and sweet
agreeableness impressed me When I
became the second president of the
Auxiliary I appointd her Chaplain. She
told me afterwards it was the first pub
lic work of any kind she had ever at
tempted, but she did it with such ex
cellence and sincerity that we were all
charmed. The next year I appointed
her to the station of Electa in the East
ern Star. Her rendition of the work has
never been surpassed in our chapter.
A year ago I had the honor of nomin
ating her for president of the Legion
Auxiliary. I had no fear of her not be
ing able to fill the post well. My only
iear was mat we mignt not do our part
and cause her distress and worry. I
am glad to be able to sav that I believe
this 'last year everyone of us has done
nis snare In making her year as our
president a succesesful and happy one.
Like PioDa she made no attemnt tn in.
fluence us, but we could not associate
with her and not be the better for that
association. May we remember and
take closely to our hearts, her sweet
unselfishness, her cheerfulness, her abil
ity to see good in and excuse the de
fects of her companions, and not least,
her intense loyalty to the American Le
gion Auxiliary. If we can hold fast to
mese tnings we snail De a living me
morial to her that will be the greatest
tribute we can pay."

which will be worn on Poppy Dav.
May 30, in honor of the World War
dead, were received at Auxiliary
headquarters here. The little red
paper flowers, packed in neat boxes,
came from the U. S. Veterans' hos

made by disabled veterans under
auxiliary direction. They must be
counted and the little white sticker
bearing the words "Made' by patient

attached, then they must be ar
ranged for distribution to the vol

on the streets May 27 to 30.
The poppies are paper replicas of
the wild European poppies which
bloomed on the battle fields of
France and Belgium during the
World War. It was this flower,
growing between the rows of wood
en crosses above fresh battle graves
which inspired the famous poem,
In Flanders Fields," by Col. John
McCrea. Since the war the flower
has become recognized throughout
the world as the symbol of war sacrifice.
