1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted shortening
3 cups diced fresh rhubarb
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon butter

2 tablespoons flour
3 eggs seperated
1/2 cup orange juice
2 cups diced fresh rhubarb
1/4 cup raisins
1 9 inch pie shell unbaked
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup sugar
1 dash cinnamon

Stir in the rhubarb and raisins, and pour into the pie shell.
Bake at 375 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes. Cover the edges of pastry with foil after first 30 minutes to prevent over browning.
Combine 3 egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar. Beat until soft peaks form, then gradually add 1/3 cup of sugar and the cinnamon, beating until stiff peaks.
Spread meringue over warm pie, sealing edges well. Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes til golden brown. Cool
