Most cartons of ice cream in the supermarket do not A UTTIE UARY BIG MEN -TOPAY f^V ONLY UTTLE BABIES , 861M list the contents. What is the best ice cream to buy? K.H., Signal Hill. W h e n b u y i n g ice cream, you generally get what you pay for. The more expensive the ice cream, the better its quality. Ice cream ingredients are regulated by federal and state standards and generally consist of milk -.. . (al, milk solids such as . nonfat dry milk, sweeteners, such as cane and beet · .sugar, honey or corn syrup, egg yolk solids to improve .. the whipping ability, stabilizers, such as gelatin, and · emulsitiers to give a creamier (cxjure, extend the amount and help the ice cream keep its shape when it starts to melt. Less expensive ice cream will have more stabilizers and emulsiliers and as few of the natural ingredients as the law allows, said a spokesman for the . Dairy Council of California in San Francisco. Inexpensive ice cream melts into a frothy mound. A belter .quality product melts down lo liquid cream. A key to quality also is found In the flavor labeling. Peach ice cream is flavored with fresh peaches. Peach flavored .ice cream contains all natural flavors, but it may be a mixture of peaches and nectarines. Peach ice cream .-with artificial flavor added is flavored mostly with peaches, but with some artificial flavor tossed in. And . artificially flavored Ice cream contains no fresh peaches at all.

Al the end of Dccem- . ber 1975 there was a story in the paper saying ford · Motor Co. had been asked to recall some Capris because there was a safely hazard in a defective windshield- · ·wiper assembly. I have never received a recall notice. but the other day in the rain my windshield wiper flew . off. When I look it in tor repair 1 was (old it would cost ·me $37. Do I have to pay for Ihe repair of a factory defect? E.B., Lakewood. Yes. Although (he U.S. Department of Transportation asked F o r d Motor Co. lo recall Capris with defective windshield wipers, Ford refused to do so. The company claimed no injuries or accidents had been caused by the defect and (hat it was not significant enough to warrant vehicle recall. No vehicles ever were recalled, and owners have had to repair the windshield wipers at their own expense. In the dark I am 13 years old and my brother is 11.

In checking the various parks recently, a city electrical crew found Ihe coin slots clogged with "wire, slugs, plastic play money, keys, chewing gum, foreign money and ice cream bar slicks," '. she added. Anyone who discovers a broken melcr should notify the recrealion leader at the park or the Recreation Department's sports o f f i c e al 432-5931. Miss Blackmon said the city is trying (o respond promptly to all such complaints and fix any malfunctioning court lights as soon as possible.
