Add 4 cups warm water to solid shortening, salt and molasses. Add rye flour and white flour. Dough should be a bit stiff, but sticky. Let rise 1 hour.
Knead on floured board. Cut into four quarters; knead several times. Form each quarter into a loaf. Place in greased pans and let rise to top of greased bread pans.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-55 minutes. Brush tops with margarine while hot.
