Hot Holiday
Cheer Given .
By Toddies
By RICHARD SALO
Since the century old celebra-
tion of Saturnalia, Yuletide drinks
have added to the friendship and
conviviality of this festive occas-
sion.
Cold weather around Christmas-
time has naturally made the var-
ious hot drinks a particular fa-
vorite of holiday partygoers.
.Basic equipment for the enjoy-
ment of these hot drinks is a
proper serving container. Tradi-
tionally this has been the thick
handled pottery Tom and Jerry
mugs.
Seek Convenience
For convenience sake, the best
place to perform your holiday bar-
tending is on the kitchen stove.
Here you can assure yourself of
adequate work space and materials
-the ever necessary hot Water is
also very close at hand.
A staple of all holiday get-to-
gethers is the Tom and Jerry. To
prepare enough for eight friends,
beat together two eggs until they
become stiff, then gradually add
4A cup of sugar. Continue the
eating and add two ounces of
dark rum, 1 teaspoon of ground
cinnamon and % teaspoon of
ground cloves.
4 Spoon this batter into the mugs
and add two ounces of hot bourbon
to each mug. Fill the mug with
hot milk.
Heat Mugs
It will help if you heat the mugs
in warm water first to make sure
they don't absorb the heat of the
drink.
Simple but effective for your
{ holiday enjoyment is the hot
toddy. Basic ingredients are two
ounces of hot water, two ounces
of hot whiskey of your choice and
a teaspoon of sugar. All of this
is mixed together and served,
piping hot.
Always remember when heating
any liquor that the alcohol evapor-
ates. The most advisable policy is
to heat it in a double boiler and
only bring the liquid up to thei
boiling point but not boiling.
Raise Temperature.
Mulled wine offers a rapid
means of ridding the body of the-
chills. The basis of this drink is aE
fifth of Burgundy or Claret whichs
is allowed to simmer. in a sauce-
pan.
Into the hot wine is added one
cup of water, 1/ cup of sugar, a
sliced lemon, a sliced orange, all-
spice, cloves and cinnamon. After
all this has simmered for ten min-
utes, pour into glasses, place a
slice of orange and lemon in each1
glass and serve.
No matter how you compound
it, a hot holiday drink will do
much to enhance the Christmas
Season.

Holidays Time for Gay,
Individual Clothes Ideas

Ann Arbor's Citizens Help
Santa in Answering Letters

Ever wonder what happens to
the letters kids all over the world
send to Santa Claus at Christmas
time?
Perhaps a lot of people think
that most of them end up in the
dead letter office. In Ann Arbor,
however, this is not the case.
According to the Ann Arbor
Postmaster, Oswald J. Koch, many
of the several hundred Santa Claus
letters received every year actually
reach Santa! Rather, they reach
his helpers.

These "Santa helpers" are kind-
hearted folks who, remembering
the suspenseful pre-Christmas days
they once spent, find their holiday
joy in getting these letters from
the postoffice, reading them and
answering the requests; either with
a small gift or, if the request is a
little ambitious, a letter.
The Postmaster says quite a
large percentage of these Santa
letters are asked for and answered
every year by these generous
people.

MEN'S NIGHT - Ann Arbor merchants open their shops to
strictly male customers for one night before the Crristmas holiday.
This gives the male the opportunity to shop by himself for his lady
friend. One store hired models to most effectively demonstrate the
latest in gifts for the ladies.

By NANCY VERMULLEN
Count them off-starting right
now until suddenly it's New Year's1
morning-these are the d:, when
fun seems to come your way, and
when dressing for fun is fun!
If ever you're going to be gay
and individual in your dressing,
the holiday season is the time.
Why not try the new idea of
trousers and skirt? Wear narrow,
black corduroy pants attached to
a matching floor-length "apron"
skirt, and you're guaranteed of
being a. hostess with "eye-appeal."
Holiday Newcomers
The Blouse Beautiful is back,
in shape-keeping fabrics made
with Orlon. Two luxurious new-
comers to the holidays: Lace of
100% Orlon acrylic fiber and crepe
of 80% Orlon and 20% wool. An
extra boon to busy party-goers is
their quick washability, almost-as-
quick dryability.
Two new silhouettes on the
threshold of the holiday's most
important settings are the Tendril
sheath and Corolla dress. The
Tendril sheath flatters the figure
in slender, supple line, from its
deeply V'd neckline to its small
train.
The Corolla dress is skirted in
furled-under puffs, much like a
flower held upside down. Being
shown in silk, the furled skirt rises
to mid-calf in front, billowing air-

ily before it swoops to the heels in
back.,
Costume jewelry is adding festive
glitter to many outfits this sea-
son. A large bowknot pin boasting
false black diamonds will add the
needed touch of glamour to "the
little black dress." Endless - or
almost so - chains of sparkling
jet beads are being wrapped in
many a decolletage for evening
loveliness.
Gay Materials
As new as the tunes they'll dance
to are this season's party shoes.
Materials are gay, with silks in
brush-stroking shades promising
an old-fashioned elegance. Heels
are tapered; wider where they
meet the sole and then gently
curved like little spools or, in their
higher version, like eighteenth-
century court slippers.
Another easy lesson in party go-
ing is the pull-over dress, which
takes its shape from a sweater's
lean and lazy fit, its elegance from
the way you wear it. It's being
shown in wool knitted up on fine
needles for a boat-necked pullover,
a thinly ribbed skirt. No waist till
you walk, then you see it.
Resort Fashions
If you're one of the lucky ones
heading south on a holiday this
winter, don't miss the new resort
fashions. The color news in resort-
wear is fresh marigold, and style
highlights are culottes for evening,
low-backed swimsuits and beach
shirts of silk.
