For filling, sift sugar and flour together and add rhubarb. Cook slowly until mixture thickens, stirring constantly. Stir in egg yolk and cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and add orange juice, rind and butter. Cool and pour into baked pastry shell. Meringue: beat egg whites until frothy. Add sugar by the tablespoon, beating until stiff. Add vanilla.
