HAYS DAILY NKWS I'AGK 7 December 21, 1976 December 21, 1976 J>A<JK fi HAYS DAILY NEWS Some Food Prices Higher MANHATTAN, Kan. - The Kansas Farm Bureau says shoppers can expect to pay more for Christmas turkeys this week, some beef cuts and eggs. The bureau's shoppers guide says 18 to 20-pound turkeys are selling at a statewide average price of 47 cents a povmd, nine cents higher than a month ago. The guide says although there is a plentiful supply of most traditional Christmas foods, some stores arc running low on pecans and candied cherries. Of the 35 food items checked al 15 supermarkets across the stale this week, the guide says 18 cost more than a week ago, eight decreased in price and nine items remained the same. T-bone steak and round steak led the increase in beef prices, climbing 5 cents to $1.84 and $1.09 a pound. Beef arm roast was up 3 cents while ground beef cost 2 cents more a pound this week. The guide, however, says beef blade roast and sirloin steak had moderate price decreases this week. In pork prices, center-cut chops jumped 12 cents to a statewide average of $1.39 a pound while cured whole ham climbed 5 cents to $1.19 a pound. Pork steak edged up 4 cents a pound this week. Pork sirloin roast and store-brand bacon, however, each fell 3 cents a pound. Whole fryers and cut-up fryers remained the same this week at 46 and 55 cents a pound. Grade A extra large eggs cost 2 cents more this week at 99 cents a dozen. Two per cent milk fell 3 cents a gallon this week and whole milk dropped a penny. The guide says a pound of butter increased four cents to $1.44 a pound. The guide says a 10-pound bag of red potatoes fell 7 cents this week to a statewide average of $1.04 while the same amount of white potatoes increased 3 cents. A one-pound can of national brand coffee cost 3 cents more this week and a store brand can fell 2 cents. The guide says head lettuce went up 3 cents a pound this week and tomatoes edged up 2 cents.

(UPI Photo) Meter Readers Are Starting To Bite Back PHILADELPHIA (UPI) John Keene can't do anything about the' roosters, geese or bulls he encounters on his job, but now at least he can do something about the dogs. In his seven years as a meter reader for the Philadelphia Electric Co., Keene has been bitten by dogs more times than he can remember. "But only one time they broke the skin," he said. A new device, aptly called, "dog chaser," is keeping dogs away from Keene and his 250 coworkers when they scale a fence, walk through backyards and .enter basements to read electric meters. The "dog chaser" is a small plastic box, a couple inches longer than a cigarette pack, that emits a high frequency sound wave — inaudible to most humans but it suije repels dogs, who suffer no permanent damage. Since he began using me box a few months ago, Keene, who owns a German shepherd, said he has been bitten only once, "I was thumbing through the book (which explains where the customer's meter is located) when the dog came out," he said. "He moved so fast thdt I didn't have time to push tbe button." Another time the device, which retails for about $45, saved him from being bitten. "I was in back of the house reading a meter," Keene said. "If they're going to bite you they come right at you. He was coming right at me. I pressed the button a second, he hesitated, then I pressed it again and he went back." There are only about 100 "dog chasers" available to PE's meter readers, so* the readers check their schedule daily for any "bad dogs" on their route. Anytime a meter reader encounters a "bad dog" he adds it to the customer's file so the next meter reader is prepared. Keene, who operates in suburban Buc^s and Montgomery counties, has been attacked by a monkey, has had to "back away from a goose and had a rooster jump on my leg and he was pecking on my leg." He even once had to go through a field of grazing bulls in Cornwells Heights to get to a turnpike billboard to read the meter. "I took a wide path around them," he said. "After all, I grew up in Philadelphia and I don't know anything about cows." But even with the special device, some dogs jusl can't be stopped: "One time a dog came at me and I pushed the button but he kept coming," Keene said. "I jumped over the fence. Then the customer came out of the house and told me the dog was deaf." Beer Can Tops Plains Yule Tree PLAINS, C,a. (UPI) Plains has n real Christmas tree Monday — with glittering ornaments, multi-colored lights, a Pnbsl beer can al the top and not a plastic needle in sight. The 15-foot cedar, set in concrete in front of Hilly Carter's gasoline station, was trimmed Sunday with a crowd of tourists looking on. But the Georgia Bureau of Investigation still is seeking the culprits who pulled down the controversial plastic tree which Billy and his friends considered an eyesore In a park on Main Street.
