The program was n- der the direction of Miss Helen O'Brien, teacher of dramatic art at the school, and was of more than usu- al merit, dna attracted a large atten- dance of parents and friends of the pupils. The programs is as follows: 1. The Rag DaWs Christmas Eve. CHARACTERS Rag DollGeraldine Breaux; Ted- dy Bear---Jackie O'Brien; Gobo Jack crn receps such as: Pecan Pralines. Stir constantly while cooking, two cupfuls of white sugar, half a cupful of brown sugar, one cupful of thin cream or top mill.:; add a large tea spoonful of butter when the boiling is high and loose, and a pinch of salt whe!n it is low and tight. Test till the sirup makes a soft ball when. a little is dropped in co!d watera ball barely workable be- tween the fingers, softer than for taffy, not even a firm soft 'ball. Then the panful is placed in a dish of cold water and chilled. When our finger plunged to the bottom finds practically no heat; we add a teaspoonful of vanilla and beat, it till light, fluffy, dry. Just after it ceases to be dark and siruplike, and gains the consistency of thick whipped cream, in go the nut meats, two cupfuls of pecan, goodies, at least followed by enough beating to make the .pralines stiff. They are shoved off the spoon in cones or mounds; or else tanen into the hands and molded into patties, with more nut meats pressed in on top. Cream .._Coconut Squares. This candy must be stirred "every minute while ,cooking. One flake of scorche,i milk ruins the whole flavor. We boil one and a half cupfuls of white sugar with half a cupful of white corn sirup and half a cupful of sweet milk, with never .any let-up to the stirring. When it foams up high, a small teaspoonful of butter goes in. Then it all cooks to a work- able finn-ball stage, the same as for Butterscotch Caramels, a ,ball that clicks a little .against the testing cup. The panful is chilled for two min- utes in a dish of .cold water, half a cupful or more of shredded coconut is added, and the same amount of hicko:y-nut or black walnut goodies, with half a teaspoonful of vanilla. It is beaten while still hot-- it beats thick swiftly, and must be scooped onto the buttered platter and cut at once. in the box---Joe Hopkins; Tin Sol- diersJ. C. Beck, R. Adkins, L. Gas- per, J.

Slgle Suggeations NEW YORK.--The woman is negligert who isn;t interesting her- self in a holiday negligee. The hell. day season .always. means tremen- ,dously good values in this field, ranging from tailored cotton pajamas to the most glamorous of hostess gowns. For the less formal type, very tailored designs are shown, in double satins and velvc':. As a matter of fact satin is figuring extensively in all branches of lingeriegowns and paj.mas that are !:and faggote,] at- tracted much attention in a recen lingerie display. For warmth and lightness, there are Tunning little rabbit robes with their washability heavily featured. Old-fashioned crocheted bed jack- ets are in tinsely Christmas win- dows and also in crepe. Over the Garden Wall When you .gather in your supply of greens from the woods, remem- ber to spare the tree and use good judgment in selecting and cutting, especially in the case of laurel and the rarer plants. Don't cut reckless. .ly, but select small twigs from here and there, as if in your own loved garden.. For wreaths and ropes of ever 'greens, various kinds and shades are bestshort twigs of hemlock, spruce and fir mingled with cedar and juniper. Trim your wreaths and garlands with clusters of bright and shining berries, bitter sweet an( holly, twigs of bar-berry or white snowberry and bayberry. A growing plant for a bright spot of color, such as a pink blossoming begonia, is always charming at Christmas. Your garden, too, although in its winter garb, will offer a wealth of material for holiday decorations. Be sure to cut some ivy, for its trailing grace will be just the thing inter- twined with the other greens. If you  want the leaves especially glossy, a drop of oil rubbed over the surface will give an extremely happy effect. Honeysuclde vines are green all wint- er and even modest privet is often used when other greens are scarce. Poppy pods, bright red rose haws and strawflowers are excellent for trimming, and make rich and lively color accents. After you have gathered a goodly supply of material keep your treas- ures in a cool place until the evening you have set aside for the Christmas decorating party. Have lots of cord and string, .good, sharp cutting shears and some fine wire 'all conveniently at hand. Start with the front door and make it as charming and festive .as possi- ble, for the doorway must say "Merry Christmas" to friends and passers- by before you can. say it ourself.
