                         -----CRUMB BASE-----
    2 1/2  cups          Quaker Oats -- uncooked
                         (quick or old-fashioned)
      2/3  cup           Brown sugar -- firmly packed
      1/2  cup           Butter or margarine -- melted
                         -----STRAWBERRY FILLING-----
    1 1/2  pints         Fresh strawberries
    2      tablespoons   Unflavored gelatine
      1/2  cup           COLD water
    1      cup           Granulated sugar
    1      tablespoon    Lemon juice
    3      drops         Red food coloring
    2                    Egg whites
    1      cup           Whipping cream -- whipped
 
 For base, combine oats, sugar and butter, mixing until crumbly.  Place in a
  shallow baking pan.  Heat in preheated moderate oven (350 F.) about 10
  minutes, stirring occasionally.  Set aside 1/2 cup of crumb mixture for
  topping.  Firmly press remaining mixture into an ungreased 13 x 9-inch
  baking pan.  Chill.
 
  For filling, crush 1/2 pint of the strawberries.  Slice remaining
  strawberries; set aside.  Soften gelatine in cold water. Combine softened
  gelatine, crushed strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and food coloring in
  saucepan.  Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until gelatine and
  sugar are dissolved.  Cool to room temperature.
 
  Place crushed strawberry mixture and egg whites in large mixing bowl.
 Beat at high speed on electric mixer until mixture is thick and mounds when
  dropped from a spoon.  Fold in whipped cream and sliced strawberries.
 Spread evenly over crumb base.  Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
 Chill several hours or until set.  Cut in pieces; garnish with strawberry
  halves.
