How to Serve
CANNED pears are an appe-
tizing product, and all you
have to dy is to open the can
and cat thorn. But there are lots
of otlier things that you can do
with thain iti a culinary way. You
can nieringtts them, for instance,
• ir serve thuiii in salads, or cock-
mils. or cobblers, You can make
!>ie3 of tlmm. or use tliein in pud-
dings, or make fritiors of them, or
bake them. In fact, there are
dozens of ways of serving this
particularly delicious fruit. Here's
one of them.
Mcrinffucd Pears: Drain six
canned pear halves (about two-
thirds of the contents of a No. 2
can), and lay them in a baking
dish about two inches apart. Fiil
i c.yitiea wit.ii one tablespoon brown
nttgar and one tablespoon butter.
Beat three whites until stiff,
ad<l one-half cup confectioner's
•sugar slowly, and continue beat-
ing. Add one teaspoon almond
extract, and cover pears com-
pletely with this meringue. Bake
in a slow—300 degree—oven for
fifteen minutes, or until a deli-
cate brewn. Serve hot or cold.
This serves six and costs only
about twenty cents.
A Fine Fruit Salad
And here's a way to combirre
pears and apricots in a fine fruit
salad you will find it hard to
Chill eight canned pear halves
and sixteen canned apricot halves,
and drain thoroughly. In the
center a nest of lettuce place a
pear half and flank it with an
apricot on each side. Mash three
packages cream cheese, soften
with a little cream and whip with
a fork until fluffy. Drop a spoon-
ful of this in the center of each
piece of fruit, and top with a bit ,
of stiff currant jelly. Serve with j
cream* mayonnaise or French '
dressing. Serves eight.*

The Commissioner Erred.
From Dallas News:
Commissioner Kenesaw M. Lan-
dis' intervention in the final
game of ihe World Series at De-
triet becomes a conspicuous in-
stance of the misguided use of
authority and sets a precedent
which will have disagreeable re-
percussion in the future of the
national pastime. Even had the
commissioner removed player
Vied wick from the game in the
interests of safety and to prevent
riot, as the Associated Press as-
Hurried that he did, his action
would have beeu in error and
contrary both to law and cus-
tom in Baseball The burden of
supplying police protection is on
the home club. If Detroit was
unable to assure the physical
safety of Med wick in left field af-
ter the collision with Owen at
third base, the game should have
been forfeited to St. Louis.
By ordering Med wick out of
the game the commissioner
weakly bowed to mob rule. . .
He has given the -'wolves" in
Detroit's left field bleachers and
in every other baseball park of
the u a me carte blanche to force
out of the lineup any unfortu-
nate pluyer within reach of their
pop bottles. His action con-
trasts weakly indeed with Ban
.Johnson handling the attack on
Billy Evans in St. Louis and
with Harry Pullian's sending
Hank O'Day back to the Polo
Grounds to umpire in the face of
the threatening mob. . .
We. have a full line of guns und
ammunition. Prices right.
