) THE KITCHEN WAY By Camille Howland Woman's Page Editor Want to be alarmed? Then listen to what the American Public Health . Association says about 50.8 per cent of the poultry which is government- Inspected. The report shows that up to 50.8 per cent of government-inspected poultry contains salmonella germs. Salmonella germs are transmitted through meat and cause food poisoning. Hog cholera and fowl typhoid are associated with salmonella. The health association says it wants to sue the agriculture department because its • seal \U. S. Inpsected for Wholesomeness\ doesn't cover everything. \What does (he health group want to substitute? \Caution. Improper handling and inadequate cooking of this product may- be hazardous to your health. Despite careful government inspection, some disease-producing organisms may be present- Consult your local health department for information on the safe handling and preparation of this product.\ That certainly ought to be a big help! The housewife who would stop to read that composition would most likely already be aware of the dangers of undercooking poultry and pork. But if she weren't tip on all that, and if she didn't realize that she should wash after handling raw meat and wash her cutting board after cutting raw meat, then why not just advise her of those things on the label? Certainly, it would take up no more space and be far more practical than suggesting she call the health department. Can't you picture calling the local health department and asking, \I have bought a capon and would like to know how to safely prepare it?\ A voice answers, in disbelief, \How's that? A capon? A chicken? You're asking how to cook it? You've got to be kidding!\ \No. It says on the wrapper to call the local health department for information on the safe handling and preparation of this product. Now, what's the scoop? Is there something they're not telling me? Just how dangerous is this chicken?\ \Well I don't know. Maybe you're right. Maybe there's \a disease spreading. Better not use it. I'd suggest throwing it out. In the meantime I'll call Albany—no better call Washington. Oh, heavens. We've got an epidemic going and I wasn't even told about it...\ Anyway, it's good to see that our tax dollars are keeping constructive thinkers busy. Otherwise we might be deprived of colorful labels. By Abigail Van Buren DEAR ABBY: I am married to the kind of man who can never be faithful to just one woman. I have left him several times because of this, but I always took him back because of the children. Tell me, Abby, is a woman a fool to stay married to aman for the sake of her children? MEADOWDALE MOTHER DEAR MOTHER: A man's faith- fulness (or the absence of it) is only a part of his' total behavior. What kind of man is he otherwise? What kind of husband is he? What kind of father has he been? Has he been discreet? Do the children love and respect him? How much have his extra curricular affairs affected your family life? Many a woman has stayed married to a man for the sake of her children when she should have left him for the same reason. DEAR ABBY: My husband grew up fatherless during the depression. Now, at age 50, his net worth is around the half-million dpUar mark. He is a professor with tenure, and has an ex- cellent retirement and insurance program. Yet he buys second-hand clothes, day-old bread and refuses to spend any money on a decent car, vactaions or travel. The reason? He wants to be sure he has enough money for his old age. What could be the matter with him? HIS WIFE DEAR WIFE: Lots of things. It's not uncommon for a man who has known hunger in his youth to be overly con- servative, but your husband has gone off the deep end. Since he probably won't spend the money for one, give him a gift certificate which will entitle him to a free physical checkup. What's your problem? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest. Write to ABBY, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal 90069. For a personal reply enclose stamped, addressed envelope. ADVANCE-NEWS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1971 PAGE 5 Liberated Leg Still Super Star By HELEN HENNESSY NEA Women's Editor NEW YORK—(NEA)—The liberated leg is holding superstar status in the fall and holiday parade. \Newest options for step- ping up the eye-catching im- pact of leg fashions include arresting colors like hot red, gaucho green, red onion and wineberry,\ said Betty Cur- ry, fashion director of a lead- ing textile house. \Panty hose with colors that are contrasting to those in the costume and shoes looks newest.\ Potent new scene stealers are the Come-Ons, a series of elegant patterned panty hose that extend the design right up to the waist band to insure a flattering view no matter how liberated legs may be. These versatile styles are effective worn with, the high slit ankle- length costumes, the classic swirls of pleats or ruffles at ' knee level or with warm pants, warm skirts, culottes and shorter cuts. \One of the elegant charmers in the series is the Dandy, featuring contrasting stripes, a terrific foil for whirly skirts and for all the nostalgic interpretations of the '40s, '30s and '20S, tabbed \civilized fashions.\' A sophisticated flatterer on the panty hose scene is Stained Glass, interpreting lacy geometries of antique lace—a perfect partner for evening skirts with waist- high slits. Crown Diamonds is the most irresistible romantic pattern—a delicately etched diamond pattern topped with tiny crowns that's smashing when co-starred with the re- vival of the \chubby\ coat.

Soups Have Come a Long Way By AILEEN CLAIRE NEA Food Editor A favorite of all ages and in all income brackets, soup's ancestry is not exactly dis- tinguished. It came from \ sopping, \s a popular dining habit of Medieval days. To. enjoy the broth meat was stewed in, the ladies and gentlemen dunked or sopped bread into the gravy. From this came the French soupe and then \potage.\ A unique venture in restaurants, La Potagerie in Manhattan spe- cializes in soups created by chef Jacques Pepin. For chilly days Pepin offers a Mock Bouillabaisse and a 4%-hour Lentil Soup.

POLLY'S POINT BBS How to Give 'Old Look- To Refinished Furniture By POLLY CRAMER DEAR POLLY - Clara wanted to know how to remove the shine from the furniture she refinished so it Will have an old look. The following has been most helpful to me: I wait a day after the final coat of varnish is applied (Polly's note-WVarnish must'be thoroughly dry arid my experience has shown that more than a day is usually required) and' then rub the finish with powdered pumice or oil or water. (Polly's note^Crude oil is usually recom- mended when an oil is used.) if a satin finish is desired, •rub with powdered rotteiistone rnixed with either pil_ or water. Both methods have giveii me good results .^-SYBIL DEAR POLLY - To give her newly varnished furniture an old look, Clara could rub it with Very, very fine steel wool, then wax and buff it. I find it important to apply several coats of dull^fipisli varnish and use the steel wool between each of them. Be sure each coat is per- fectly dry before using the steel wool. This adds even more to the desired patina.-'GINNY DEAR POLLY — I wantto tell Clara that a professional painter used the ^following method on my varnished woodwork and it was most satisfactory. Dip a piece of fine steel wool in linseed oil and rub lightly to remove the shine and have a satin finish. Thanks to everyone for the many helpful hints in the column.^-L. B.

MADDOX Nutty Prospects For 1971 Holidays By GAYNOR MADBOX What would the festive Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner be without the holi- day bowl full of nuts? What are the nutty pros- pects for the 1971 holiday season? Very good, experts say. Almonds will be down a shade in production, but not enough to trouble en- thusiasts. California is the main source. According to J. S. Miller, assistant chief of specialty crops of the U.S. Depart- ' ment of Agriculture's Con- sumer Marketing Service, -there are large' acreages l of newly planted almond trees in the deserts of southern California, which have re- cently been irrigated by wa- ter brought down through the new aqueduct from the north. Anyone who can buy \ a piot of land in the recently irrigated area plants almond trees. There's going to be a huge new crop in four or five years. \The almond people are particularly - sharp about merchandising their crops, both present and future ones. They spend lots of money on promotion in our country and in Europe and Japan,\ Mil- ler says. \The Japanese are begin- ning to like American foods. So the California Almond Ex- change is certainly helping them change their • taste^as far as American almonds are concerned.\ The walnut crop will be bigger than last year. Prices Will hot be lower, however. The growers hope for an in- crease in consumption. Cali- fornia is also the main grow- ing area for the English Wal- nuts. \The walnut growers don't seem quite so determined as the almond producers. They are also .playing the Euro- pean and Japanese markets, but they don't seem to push so hard. This might be be- cause they have not got the same amount of money as the almond group,\ Miller says. \Perhaps the public isn't quite so eager to eat wal- nuts as they are to crunch almonds. Incidentally, black walnuts, as opp.qs.ed to Eng- lish walnuts,..- .are. grown mainly in Kentucky\and Ten- nessee. They have hard shells, are stronger in flavor, stain the fingers black and are a small crop.\ The pecan crop will also be much larger than last year. They ..are grown all across the. south, but Geor- gia is the largest producer. . There are two types of pe. carisr the improved 'paper shell' arid the \smaller pecan with a hard shell which is used widely in confections and baking by commercial firms, Miller explains. The filbert crop from Ore' gon will also be particularly large this season, \But fil- berts are not so well khoWn as the other nuts. They are not well promoted, but the growers are beginning to see the light. Competition,\ says Miller, \is getting stiff.' \Everyone is interested in more and better nuts, but they must be told about (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) 'Boys Will Be Boys ' By AILEEN SNODDY Boys' rooms take a turn away from chronic disaster sites with new concepts in furniture.
