THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 28, 1952. Homegrown Produce Nearing Peak on Wholesale Markets From now through the next two weeks the homegrown produce offered on the local wholesale market will probably be at its peak in variety and quality. The prices should be lower than at any time. Anyone interested in canning or freezing foods for winter use can hardly go wrong buying them. Among the best buys available now we find: apples, green beans, shelled lima beans, endive, miscellaneous greens and spinach, gre8i peppers, summer squash, and bunched turnips. Green peppers and summer squash are es- Stevenson Gets Back in Line With 'Dealers' By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (JB—Gov. Stevenson, reminded by President Truman to watch his steps, is trying to .waltz Gen. Eisenhower into a corner. When photographers were turning him around to get a good shot of him during his visit here a few weeks ago, Stevenson quipped: haven't been in so much trouble since I was in dancing school." At least his political dancing seemed a little rusty for he stepped smack on Truman's toes. And, like a man with bunions, Truman showed he didn't like it. This is what had happened: Over a week ago, in a letter to an editor, Stevenson said he would if elected, clean up the "mess" in Washington. Asked about this at his news conference last Thursday, Truman snapped he knew of no mess. Then, asked If he felt he was a target, Truman said the Democratic party had to run on the record of the Roosevelt-Truman administrations— that's all it could run on. Jolted by this reminder to watch where he was going, Stevenson hastened to soothe the President's feelings the next day by saying: "Of course, I approve and applaud the vast accomplishments for the public good under Democratic leadership." Meanwhile, Eisenhower publicly approved some of the social legis lation placed on the books under the Democratic New Deal - Fair Deal administrations of the pasl 20 years. This gave Stevenson an opportunity to needle Eisenhower with a crack about being a "me, tooer. Still, one of the oddities of this campaign is that the New Dea! and the Fair Deal—at least under those names—have hardly figured in thli campaign although they were issuei in previous tial races. But late Wednesday, at a Democratic rally in New Jersey, Steven son showed that in a week's time he had polished up on his poll tical dancing;. He came out with lavish praise of Democratic doings for the past 20 years. Stevenson tried to make this speech do double duty. It could serve to reassure Truman Democrats about him. And it was a wide open taunt to Eisenhower to show whether he was a "me tooer." But Stevenson, like Eisenhower still hasn't offered any specifi program of his own. Until thej do, the public will have to keej on groping in the dark. ecially good buys as they are sel- ng slow at little more than the ost of the containers. The truck eceipts of Arkansas, Oklahoma ind Texas watermelons are still airly heavy, and their price are [expensive. Although the cheap peach supply i the market is rather light, lere are still many peaches avail- ble as most are moving direct o retail outlets. Bartlett pears are ill selling at moderate prices The first California Red Delicious pples were sold on the market his week, and while they are pro- bly very appealing, they are sell- ng at luxury prices. Locally grown tomatoes, along nth shipped in tomatoes, were a ttle cheaper but remained at moderate prices. Head lettuce rom Colorado and California is in moderate supply and selling at moderate prices. Another good salad ingredient s endive. It is selling on the mar- et now at below the cost of pro- ucing it, and should be regarded s a good bargain. This endive is plant with narrow, fine-divided urly leaves that slightly resemble andelion leaves. It is used raw s a salad, or cooked as greens ts slightly bitter flavor adds in- erst to a mixed salad. A sprig ol ndive works well as a garnish or assorted dishes. In cooked form t is prepared like spinach, anc s also tasty braised. Crispness, freshness, and tend- rness are essential factors o: uality. Wilted plants especially lose on which leaves are brown re undesirable as are plants with ough, coarse leaves. Such leaves will be excessively bitter. Tender- ess can be determined by break- ng or twisting a leaf. Locally jrown endive is unbleached, anc s leaves are green and curly. Deay may show up if leaves are rown. Like most greens, endive s rich in Vitamin A and in iron t also contains sizable portions of ther nutrients.—Furnished by F Turtle, Federal Food Reporter English Minister Isn't Whistling EPSOM, Eng. ttl — This racin; town's sprightly Methodist ministe now in Iowa, assured his flock today the slickness of American chicks has been overrated. The Rev. R. L. J.

"But that just did not happen, honestly think the women in'Lon don are just as attractivel dressed." Kaye said he also was surprise to find the children of the Corn Belt looking "pallid and unhealthy compared with their ruddy-face English • cousins.
