I don't mind this too much when I haven't seen the shows previously anyway, but I do think it's a little sneaky of the producers t& capitalize once more on shows for which they have already received money. In other words, re-runs are against my principles, but I'll do it anyhow. * * - * / . . THIS MORNING i WOKE UP REALIZING it was column had sort of an idea about what to write on and I have a brand new ribbon in my typewriter. But Pop got up, went down to,the! garden, came back loaded with tomatoes and announced^ "With the ones wo havo out on the. back porch, there's a full bushel of tomatoes. They ore ripe now, this is my day off, and if you want uny help in canning them it will have to be today." I seldom let anything interfere with my column writing, but that was art ultimatum. So, I'm resorting to a re-run. Naturally, it's on tomatoes —the one that appeared last tomato season. » i » * A TOMATO IS ONE OF MOTHER, NATURE'S finest achievements. It's called a vegetable mostly, but it's,really a fruit. It's round, luscious, smooth-skinned and firmljr packed; They are rriuch better when raised in their natural environment rather than under artificial hot-house conditions, and they are chock-ful of vitamins. Just looking at a tomato gives you a lift for they sure brighten up the place with their fresh vivid color. The younger they are, the better they tnste, but you don't want to pick them when they are still green. •Sometimes, when you squeeze them, they hit you in the eye. • • * , * • * • ••.'.'• THERE IS ANOTHER KIND OF TOMATO—a pretty girl. She's called by a vegetable name, but she^s really a person. She is also •ound, luscious, smooth-skinned and" firmly packed. She's better,' oo, when she looks natural without resorting to artificial aids ind although most people like this kind of tomato a little on the jreen side, they seldom like them over-ripe. Looking at this kind of tomato gives some people a lift and there are people who con- ider them best when very fresh. As with the other, sort of tomato, ou can get hit in the eye .if you try to squeeze them. * * ' * : FATHER LIKES BOTH KINDS OF TOMATOES. I firmly'ap- jrove of his fondness for the vegetable kind, but I frown upon any yen he^might show toward the girl-type. It's probably narrow minded of me, but, I like to protect my own interests. Tomatoes may grow on vines, but good husbands don't. When you have -gone o all the trouble of acquiring one, you ought to be real careful 0 preserve him. * * * MANY OF THE TECHNIQUES IN THE care and training of msbands are the very same ones you use in rearing children. If they show a particularly strong trail that might become undesirable you have to channel it so that it goes in the right direction. Thus, long ago, when I found out that my husband likes tomatoes; : decided I would see to it that he had all of them that he wanted. :Ie can admire them, pat them, squeeze them and pinch them. Just so it's the vegetable kind of tomato. • * * * . THE PRACTICING OF THIS THEORY STARTED the summer we were engaged. I was more of a tomato myself in those days than 1 am now, and it really wasn't so much of a job to get the young man 1 I'd picked out to put a ring on the business finger of my left hand. However, he had a tendency to coast along with the status quo and he wasn't in nearly so much of a hurry to start housekeeping as I was. So, one night when he said he sure did like tomato juice, I suggested we make some. , • * , * * EVERY NIGHT AFTER WORK, we'd go down in the basement of my folk's house with a bunch of tomatoes. Pa would, court this tomato and we together would quart the other kind. First he'd squeeze me a little and I'd squeeze him. Then we'd both squeeze tomato juice.

So we got married so that we could drink up all the tomato juice. * * * EVERY YEAR SINCE THAT TIME, Pop has helped me can tomatoes. We are a lot speedier at the job now than we were then because we don't take so much time out for kissing. The fruits of our labor don't last so far into the winter as they did n the old days, for now we have two little tomatoes to help us drink up the juice. Plus a young son who is getting a little nterested in tomatoes himself. * * * FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS, we haven't had to buy .our :omatoes. Pop raises them in our garden. One year he bought a dozen and a half of the most expensive hybrid kind of plants. eTc" built special little racks for each plant so that their tender young leaves wouldn't droop on the ground. He talked to them in much the same way I did when I fed my babies pablum and ic practically begged them to grow. If the weather man didn't i come through with rain, he dragged the hose down there to sprinkle them. We had tomatoes, alright, but not the way we do now. * * * SINCE THAT TIME, we've bought just any old kind of tomato plants and they have practically taken over the garden. The only thing that outdoes them is the cucumbers. Even the weeds have been choked out by the tomatoes! ( * * * TOMATOES ARE ON OUR TABLE, SLICED, twice a day. At times when I'm in too much of a hurry in the morning, I've grabbed a tomato to eat along with my 'breakfast coffee. We've given quite a few to friends and it's lovely to have some to share, and we've cannned and canned tomatoes. * * * BILL HAS GOTTEN INTO THE act when Pop and I can tomatoes. Evenings, Sundays and holidays, we set up an assembly line. I wash and cut, Bill squishes the juicer and Pop bottles and cleans up afterward. This is a phenomena in itself, for the only dishes he has ever done around our house is when we can tomatoes. The next morning, I check the jars to see if they are sealed, I take them down to the basement for storage, and I look around to see Pop. He's just been down to the garden and he has brought one more peach box full of tomatoes! * * * MARRIAGE COUNSELORS RECOMMEND for a successful wedlock, that a husband and wife share interests and hobbies. At our house, I can't get very excited about Pop's fishing and he doesn't go for my writing hobby. I don't like watching baseball games on television and he doesn't care for dramatic plays. I don't like the Wednesday night fights and poetry fails to send 'my husband. But we do have one interest in common, aside from the care and feeding of our three youngsters. It is tomatoes! * * * APPLES ARE ANOTHER PRODUCT plentiful right now, They are fine for pies and sauce, and they are wonderful in special desserts, This week's recipe is for Apple Roly Poly Dessert and it came from Mrs George Eden, Bancroft. 6 Cups peeled diced apples 1M- cups water 1 1 & cups sugar 1/3 cup red cinnamon candies 2 cups baking powder biscuit mix ¥4 cup sugar l /i cup melted shortening 1 egg Milk to make 2/3 cup with egg. . Combine water, sugar and candies and simmer 5 minutes. Combine the biscuit mix with sugar and add milk, egg and shortening. Put on board and knead lightly, then roll to 12 x 12 inch square. Butter lightly and add 3 cups of the apples. Put rest of apples in a 9 x'9 x 2 inch pan, add Vz of the<'water, sugar, and candy mixture. Roll biscuit mixture with apples on it like jelly roll and cut in 1 Va inch slices. Place on top of apples etc. in pan and bake in 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. Pour reserved syrup over top of dessert and bake 15 minutes longer until lightly browned on top. May be served plain or with inilk or cream. —GRACE.

HAVE YOU HEARD? CULLEN'S HAVE The Prestige Line... JUNGERS OIL HOME HEATERS NO OTHER HEATERS OFFER SUCH HEATING PERFECTION SEE I Tubular Flue Construction Only Jungers heaters have this feature. The multiple flues increase h'&a't liberating metal to nearly four times the amount found in ordinary heaters. Only Jungers can use Tubular flue construction because there never is any soot accumulation restricting the flow of heat through the flues. Bluefire Bu.rners ' Burn like gas — No Smoke, No Soot, No Odor — absolutely clean at all times. Operate on 25% to 40% less fuel. Jungers burners coupled with Jungers Flue construction give unexcelled efficient heating. Single Wall Construction 1 Only single wall construction allows an unrestricted flow of radiant heat which is so desirable and comforting. This makes Jungers a truly "Dual Action" heater.
