Here is a recipe sent to us by a School Marm who married an
engine man. She is Mrs. Olive E. Schultz of Rio, Wisconsin.
1 cup quick cooking oatmeal
1 cup boiling water
2 eggs, well beaten
1 cup brown sugar
Scant cup white sugar
one-third cup dates, cut finely
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon soda
Pour the boiling water over the oatmeal and cool to lukewarm.
Cream the shortening. Add the sugar gradually, then the beaten
eggs. Combine with the oatmeal and add the remaining dry
ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees.
This makes a large loaf cake. (There will be plenty for Elmer,
Easy Oatmeal doing
Mix 1 cups brown sugar (packed firmly), cup top milk, 2
tablespoons butter. Bring to a boil and boil three minutes stirring
constantly. Remove from heat, add vanilla and beat until creamy,
add a little cream if necessary.
We were presented one of the nicest pieces of creative work
lately. It was expressed in a little different manner than most of
us can do. A song entitled ‘The Thrill of Those Steam Engine
Threshing Days’. This cleverly worded story is in music form,
the words are by Ethel L. Bomberger of Sargent, Nebraska, and the
music by Beulah E. Peterson of Omaha, Nebraska. Mrs. Bomberger has
dedicated it to her husband, Warren R. Bomberger. The famous Case
painting graces the cover. You will find the advertisement of the
song in this issue of the ALBUM.
You folks attending Mt. Pleasant Reunion will have the pleasure
of meeting two of our co-workers who make the ALBUM possible. Mr.
and Mrs. Ralph Robb, who work side by side in their printing plant
printing a weekly newspaper and the ALBUM, will be at the Mt.
Pleasant Reunion on Friday and Saturday.
After getting my ‘Cherubs’ started on their third year
in school I expect to take off with the Robbs. Hope to see you all.
I’m looking forward to it as it will be my first visit to Mt.
Pleasant. Elmer says it is wonderful.
