WORK FOR HOUSEKEEPERS

MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA December 22, (AP)

Approval of a housekeepers’ aid project by the Works Administration will mean aid in housecleaning to more than 75 shut-ins and other persons unable to care for their homes here. Employees of the project will clean house, cook, attend to children and handle other duties which unfortunate families are not able to perform for themselves.

Beaten eggs and cake baking

A cookbook from 1827 states that “eggs are most expeditiously beaten with rocks.”

Another, of 1916, states that “if you can hold your hand in the hottest part of the oven for a quarter of an hour, the temperature will be correct” for cake baking.
