Whole Family in Jaycees' Activities By Mary Lee Hagert Serving as president of the Carroll Jaycee Ettes is just one of Mrs. Doyle Beeber's many activities. Besides taking care of her family, she has many hobbies. "I have to take time to relax," she said with a laugh. Her term as president of the club is almost over. During the past year she initiated many new projects. The Jaycee Ette Baby Contest last year was her idea. About 100 babies participated, she said. She was also the investigator of the "Mock Toll Road" the club sponsored for the benefit of New Hope Village. Other activities she began included a "Foolish Dinner," for both the Jaycees and the Jaycee Ettes. Her husband is currently president of the Carroll Jaycees. Mrs. Beeber has donated a large amount of time to both clubs. "I imagine that if you added up the hours I spend on the clubs in one week, they would total an entire day," she said. The Beebers moved to Carroll three and a half years ago. About six months later. Mrs. Beeber decided to join the Jaycee Ettes. "Since we were new in town, I felt the Jaycee Ettes would be a good way to get to know some people here," she said.

She feels joining the club has helped her in many ways. "When I joined three years ago, it would have been ! impossible for me to speak in I front of a crowd," she ! reflected. The club is involved in many different community activities, she said. "When you do things in a group and are having to meet people, it helps you gain confidence." she said.

Mrs. Beeber competed in the Jaycee Ette "speak-up" contest on the regional level Sunday at Guthrie Center. "I'm kind of sorry to see the year ending, but it's nice to let someone else take the responsibility," she said in reference to the end of her term as president.

Merits in Cooking in Single-Pot By Tom Hoge (Associated Press Writer) The catchall cookpot has been a favorite for ages, since the days when desert nomads simmered the results of the day's hunt over a brushwood fire while they swapped tall tales. One-pot cookery not only saves time and effort,- it also saves money as housewives are finding in these days of ever escalating food costs. When I was a kid my mother called it stew and usually threw in leftovers of the week. But today the one-pot dish has acquired a lot of fancy names, from the French specialty called navarin, which usually means a delectable concoction of mutton, onions, turnips and potatoes, to the classic ratatouille that turns a batch of vegetables into a culinary symphony, and the bouillabaisse, the pungent fish stew of the Mediterranean. The casserole is a popular method of one-pot cooking which involves baking food slowly in a heavy dish with a tight-fitting lid like the famed coq au vin or spicy Creole of beef. As most cooks know, the cheaper cuts of meat are preferable to the choicer ones when they stew them because they retain their flavor and texture better than the more tender cuts. Coq au vin, for instance, was traditionally made with a rooster in the old days and it usually took several hours of simmering in wine to make it edible. An even longer session over the stove was needed to cook beef ragout back when our forefathers had to make do with the stringy Texas longhorns that were butchered after they had been herded over miles of trailways. Today meat is generally Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, April 5, 1976 more tender and it is just as well, since most housewives have other interests in addition to cooking and wanting meals that do not require too much watching — meals that can be frozen and served again if there are leftovers. Casseroles and the like are ideal if you are entertaining. They can be cooked ahead of time, put in the refrigerator and then reheated while you are serving cocktails. Here is an example of one-pot cooking, known as Creole beef casserole. 2 tablespoons corn oil '£ cup chopped green pepper Vi onion chopped 1 pound ground round of beef (or chuck) 1 can (1 pound 3 ounces) tomatoes '/•> cup dark corn syrup 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1 bay leaf 2 tablespoons corn starch 3 cups cooked rice 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese Heat oil in skillet over medium heat.

Arrange alternate layers of rice, meat mixture and shredded cheese in large baking dish. Bake in 350-degree oven for half hour. Serves 6. Good with a robust red Burgundy.

Yields 6 portions. "It is called sellery and you eat it without cooking." That was how one Juliana Smith described celery in a letter to a cousin almost 200 years ago. She was writing about a holiday dinner, mentioning especially the vegetables and "one which I do not believe you have yet seen. Uncle Simeon had imported the Seede from England just before the War began and only this Year was there enough for table use. Today, half the fresh celery eaten in this country during winter and spring months is grown in the sunny fields of Florida, November-into-June. It continues to be popular as a fresh nibble-food; however, hundreds of uses for "sellery" have been discovered during the last two centuries. A "stalk" of celery refers to the whole plant, and a whole medium stalk of celery yields about five cups when sliced. "Rib" is the correct term for a single stem of the plant. * * + An interesting hot dish featuring celery is this: Celery in Orange • Sauce 2 stalks Florida celery 2 chicken bouillon cubes Eight Aliens Are Arrested KELLOGG, Iowa (AP) — Eight persons without immigration documents were picked up about one mile west of here on 1-80 Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
