More on the cat food casserole controversy By Abigail Van Buren ic. 1974 by Chicago Tribunt-N. Y. Ntws Synd., Inc. DEAR ABBY: A reader wrote confessing that she had served her family a casserole containing tuna cat food. (They didn't know what was in it, but found it so "delicious" they asked her to make it again.) Her question: "Is there something in cat food that will harm humans?" Your reply: "I didn't pussyfoot around. I went right to the leading cat food manufacturer, and^he word from them is: "Don't serve cat food to humans." Abby, you copped out with your answer. I would like to know why pet food shouldn't be served to humans. Does it contain something that is indeed harmful to humans or not? Are the conditions under?which it is canned sufficiently sanitary for animals, but not for humans? Please give a straight answer to my questions. STEADY READER DEAR READER: In defense of my first reply, n spokesman for n very large pet food company very cagily declined to commit himself, hence my admittedly inadequate answer. However, your letter (and many others) prompted me to take another stab at it, so I called the Food and Drug Administration, and after speaking with a Daniel Clink, I knew this time I was barking up the right tree. ABBY: "Is pet food safe for humans? Yes or no?" CLINK: "It's safe for humans—but not recommended." ABBY: "Here we go again. WHY is it not recommended for humans?" '* $ CLINK: "Because pet foot is nutritionally balanced for animals —not humans —and the nutritional requirements for each are vastly different." ABBY: "All right, but it's highly unlikely that a human would confine his diet exclusively to pet food, so if someone wanted to fill his stomach, an occasional Alpo meatloaf wouldn't kill him, would it?" CLINK: "Certainly not. But there's another reason why pet food is not recommended for humans. You see, most pet foods contain certajn parts of animals that humans wouldn't care to eat —for psychological reasons. Like the lungs, intestines, spleens, stomachs, and " ABBY: "Thanks, I think I get the idea. How about the regulations with regard to sanitation?" CLINK: "Oh, pet food manufacturers are required to meet very high standards with regard to those conditions. And the government inspectors make sure these standards are met." So now, dear readers, you know as much as I do about why pet food is safe for humans but not recommended. DEAR ABBY: Now this can be told. Ever since that letter appeared in your column about the woman who made a casserole with cat food tuna, I've been wanting to confess to my family that they have eaten quite a lot of cat food without knowing it. The first time it was an accident. We have two cats, and I absentmindedly used the cat tuna in a tuna fish salad I was making for my family. They all remarked on how good it was, and nobody got sick, so I've continued to use it whenever my budget is tight. PENNY PINCHER Everyone has a problem. What's yours?

Tips for the honieinah DRYING GOURDS Pick gourds after maturity and before frost bites them, cut ^ourd stems with clippers, leaving about two inches of stern attached. Clean and dry the gourds; then spread out to dry for two or three weeks After drying, they may be waxed for a dull finish or a clear coat of shellac applied for a shiny surface. NATURAL DRYING Many berried branches grasses, grains, reeds and sedges, burrs, cones, fruits, nuts, seed pods and spurs just dry naturally. Some of the leaves like eucalyptus and lemon or salal, with their lovely soft green color need no treatment. Arrange and then allow them to dry simply by not replacing water.

The news dribbled in about 4:45 — 15 minutes after Lisa, Rachel and Josh usually arrive home. A neighbor whose daughter rides the bus with our children called. "Isn't Lisa home yet?" Then the camp director: "Mrs. Koch, the bus has been in an accident, two blocks from your house. But nobody was hurt." "Are you sure? Nobody was injured?" "I just spoke to the police office." "Don't try to keep anything from me, Mr. H., tell me the truth." "Nobody was hurt, Mrs. Koch. But they took the children to the hospital, just for a check up." Lew, who had picked up the extension, slammed down the phone. Before I could say good-bye to the camp director, I heard rubber burn outside the house and Lew was off to the nearest hospital. He found the emergency room filled with lollipop-licking campers, Joshua and Lisa among them. But no Rachel. "Rachel Koch," said the nurse. "Oh, she's in X ray." Lew, always calm in an emergency, turned white as a sheet. (Last year, when Lew appeared at the hospital admitting desk to check on his brother's broken leg, he was in such a visible state of agitation, the orderly rushed over with a wheel chair — for him.) Rachel returned from X ray with a jaunty walk, but began holding her right hip as soon as she saw Daddy. (We don't refer to her as Sarah Bernhardt around here for nothing.) X ray report was clear. We brought the bunch home, with Rachel alternating between moans and requests for an ice cream cone. Not trusting to emergency-room diagnoses, we called our pediatrician, who still makes house calls. Meantime, Rachel ale three grilled-cheese sandwiches, one bowl of alphabet soup and a banana — the first sandwich consumed lying down, the second sitting up, the third skipping from kitchen to dining room. The pediatrician checked her, found not a mark, and wondered why emergency rooms take unnecessary X rays. The examination ended with Rachel offering to do a cartwheel tor the pediatrician. Now that the danger was over. Lew and I began to fall apart. My mother called as we were hugging each other and crying. She noted, as soon as 1 relatecf the accident scare, that she had always worried about that long bus trip to camp. It's not exactly what I wanted to hear right then, but it did make me stop and think Wasn't there anything that could be done to make school buses safer for the thousands of children who ride them daily'' We have begun to investigate sta'.e and federal regulations and will soon have a full report on what parents and the community can do to avoid the fright, and worse, the tatalities of school bus transportation. L'ntil then, please join us in a prayer of thanksgiving ( <»j»> i if; It I i I '*• I 1 f M !•> .1 ml Jo.innr Kwi_h swiss and lace with burgundy streamers.

REHEARSAL DINNER Prior to the Bolton-Burke wedding, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Wayne Burke hosted a rehearsal dinner honoring the members of the wedding party. The dinner was at Jett's Restaurant in Prescolt. Places were laid for twnety-seven. The couple chose this time to present gifts to their attendants. Bulky Bottom Don't wear chunky, heavy shoes or sandals with a short lightweight skirt.
