Beat egg whites and cream of tartar till stiff but not dry.

Sift together remaining 1/2 cup sugar, flour, cocoa, and salt; fold into egg yolks till blended ; stir in vanilla.

Carefully fold yolk mixture into egg-white mixture.

Line bottom and sides of 1 5 1/2x10 1/2x1-inch jelly-roll pan with waxed paper; grease paper lightly.

Spread batter evenly in pan.

Bake in slow oven (325°) 25 minutes, or till cake springs back when lightly touched.

Cool 5 minutes; turn out onto towel sprinkled with sifted confectioners' sugar.

Peel off waxed paper quickly but carefully so you won't tear cake.

Roll cake with towel, jelly-roll fashion.

When cake is cool, unroll.

Stir ice cream just to soften; gently spread on cake.

Roll up as jelly roll.
