Preheat oven to 350. Cream shortening and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs amd beat thoroughly. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, and soda together. Add alternately with milk to creamed mixture. Fold in dates and nuts. Pour into greased, shallow pans. Bake in 350 oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Cut into bars when still warm and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
