Need the bread and butter pickle recipe from either the Ball or Kerr canning recipe books. Hep me!

My mom's bread and butter pickle recipe came from a 1970s edition of either the Ball Blue Book or the Kerr canning book, but she can't find the books (or the recipe). My library doesn't have the books, either.
The recipe was very simple -- vinegar, sugar, onions, mustard seeds and maybe turmeric. No weird stuff, like a lot of the recipes I'm finding online. (And the recipe on Ball/Kerr's own site now calls for "Ball® Simple Creations® Bread & Butter Pickle Mix." That ain't happening.)
This is the version I grew up with, so I'd like to use it.
Any help? I've got 5 lbs of cukes that need to go into jars tomorrow.
