Mrs. David [Mavis] Hoyt, Humboldt We. will try something new for this week's Independent Homemaker. Our subject is Mrs. David Hoyt of Humboldt. She is the former Mavis Wells of Webster City. Dr< Hoyt is a Doctor of Chiropractic, practicing in Humboldt and Mavis works part-time in his office. She is •a registered nurse. Mavis' family includes two daughters and a son. Ginny, 18, is a home ec major at NIACC, Mason City. Candy, 16, is a junior at Humboldt High School and Steven, 13, is in the seventh grade at Humboldt Junior High. Mavis is an involved mother and homemaker. Besides working for her husband, she also is associate matron of Eastern Star, has served as program chairman for Congregational Women's Fellowship and is a member of Circle Four. She also likes to play bridge and knit, but she has a special interest in sports, especially wrestling, as well as all school activities. Our special interest in Mavis this week is that of a Weight Watcher. Four months ago she joined the local group. Mrs. Hoyt said she was getting to the place where she hated to shop for clothes and had gone the fad diet, diet pills and starvation routes. To be truthful she said, she had little faith in the new group but decided to attend a meeting four months ago. That was almost 50 pounds ago for Mavis. Today she is among the organization's most ardent supporters. The local chapter was organized in Humboldt in July, 1973, and to date membership numbers in the 40's. Unlike many organizations of this type, the help received does riot just include a pat on the back or a scolding at weekly meetings. It offers concrete help with meal planning and menus. The international organizatoin, working with a staff of dedicated nutritionists and doctors, has devised a diet that contains all the nutritional requirements, yet doesn't leave the dieter hungry. To the ordinary layman, the only difference in the •Weight Watcher's eating is that there are no fried foods, 'no sugar, and the potential weight loser must never, never skip a meal. The foods list is divided into 14 categories. You may figure out your own meal plan or follow a ready-made plan. How much weight do you think you could lose eating a daily menu that goes like this? Breakfast: Vz grapefruit, one egg, one piece pf toast with one teaspoon margarine and 8 ounces of skim milk. Noon: 4 ounces of meat or fish, lettuce salad and dressing, one piece whole wheat bread, Vz cup pineapple, and coffee. Evening: 6 ounces of meat or fish; beets, carrots or peas; and tomatoes. Plus you would still have a fruit choice left and 8 ounces of milk. Weight Watchers don't know the meaning of the word hungry. Diet pop is permitted and there are any number of dessert recipes available. Sounds like alot of food doesn't it? The secret is in eating correct foods with a variety that meets nutritional requirements. According to Mrs. Hoyt, the hardest part is attending the first meeting. From then on, it's downhill all the way. For those who are willing to follow the eating plan, weight losses can be surprising. It is one thing to read articles on before and after. But it is another to sit in a group of people you know and hear about weight losses by those attending. One of the terms commonly heard is the word legal. This is in reference to the foods allowed by the group. If you eat what you are supposed to and only that, you are legal. If not you are eating illegally. And believe it or not, the illegal list of food is not long. Most measuring is done by weight and 4 and 6 ounces of meat is more than you might imagine. There is only room for a few recipes here, but the suggestions and possibilities are almost endless. If there is nothing that suits your taste here, Weight Watchers has romelhing you will like.

When cold weather blows across the northern states we serve, the demand for natural gas zooms. And we want enough on hand to meet the demand. That means we store it in the summer, so you can use it in the winter. One way is to store it underground, but that technique requires a special porous rock which can absorb the natural gas. And that kind of rock isn't everywhere we'd like it to be. So now we've got another way. We liquefy it. That's right. We turn natural gas into a liquid by lowering the temperature down to 260° below zero. Then we can store it in tanks. When the temperature drops and demand goes up, we reconvert the liquid gas to its natural form and pipe it to your home. Of course we have to have special facilities to liquefy the gas, store it, and then vaporize it again. So we're building a liquefied natural gas storage facility near Duluth, Minnesota, on the northern end of our transmission system. It will store two billion cubic feet of natural gas. We expect it to be in service before the 1975-76 heating season. It's just another thing Northern Natural Gas Company is doing to keep that quiet, efficient blue flame burning at your house. So you can continue to have the advantages of natural gas for home heating and water heating, home cooling, clothes drying, and cooking. Northern Natural Gas Company The pipeline serving natural gas to your local gas company We promise to keep it burning.
