Joe is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Glen Horner. your attention are r e c i p e s to tempt the appetite and advertisements for drugs to reduce the appetite. Claims for reducing schemes and food supplements challenge information in food columns. Turn on a television set. You hear the din of commercials selling vitamin capsules, cure- alls, low calorie drinks. All claim to give one health and vitality — to keep you slim, trim, and forever young. Food fadists and health promoters are having a field day. People in the United States spend more than $500 million a year on unnecessary or false- |ly represented vitamin products and so-called health foods. Where do you turn for truth and guidance? What foods are good for you and why? Just what is a balanced diet? USDA human nutritionists already have supplied many of the answers. Since 1894, biochemists and nutritionsts have been seeking, finding and reporting scientific knowledge about nutrition to the American people. Variety and Moderation Science's answer to the diet peddlers is simple. The best way to keep healthy is to — Eat a variety of well-chosen foods every day. Eat moderately. Too many Americans are eating and drinking too many calories for desirable weight and good health. i All the nutrients your body needs are amply supplied in a variety of foods at your supermarket. All the known food elements, vitamins, and minerals are there — the four basic food groups that can bring health, | vitality, and well-being. Nutritionists say you need foods from the vegetable - fruit group — the meat group — the milk group — and the bread- cereal group every day to assure a balanced diet. To help you make a wise selection of foods, they prepared the widely distributed USDA leaflet, "Food for Fitness: A Daily Food Guide." It presents sion Ofice. Actually, the body needs only certain amounts of the essen- ial nutrients for proper func- ioning. Any excess, with the exception of fat soluble vitamins A and D, is not utilized. Money spent for high-potency vitamins and supplements is of:en wasted. The overall nutritonal status of a person determines to a arge extent his susceptibility ;o certain diseases. No one food can be considered a cure or :reatment for such diseases. Your physician is the only re- lable source of advice for proper treatment.

Knits With Fashion Know-How We Will Be Open | Christmas Eve & I I Christmas Day | I The Drummer Boy I I S. HWY. 61 - BLYTHEVILLE | By HELEN HENNESSY NBA Women's Editor NEW YORK — (NBA) — The woman, and tiie sophisticated suburbanite will find a wealth of fashion variety in updated shirts, new-looking separate skirls to wear with them, in casual knits, sweaters dresses or sweater skirts. The new sportswear looks demand the advantages of manmade fibers, particularly Orion, for knits that have comfort, shape-retention and good performance built in and and Dacron in an endless variety of washable, wrinkle-resistant fabrics for the rejuvenated shirts and separates. Ban-Lon garments also run the gamut in sportwear fashion, from kicky minidrcsses to tights and tops and wild at-home clothes. Here is a list of some of the new sportswear looks: SWEATER DRESSES. Kicky little knit shifts with the look of the sweater that grew into a dress. . BODY SHIRT. The big news in shirts is the fitted-shirt look or body shirt. Often this has a long-pointed collar, wide French cuffs or is side-closed with a fencer color. KNIT SHIRT. Taking a cue from the casual comfort of the woven body shirt is the knit shirt. It has shirt collar and sleeves and button front. SKIRTS. New are the kilts, dirndls and pleated wrap skirts and pants skirts (with the pants completely disguised), panel front skirts and skirts with side cluster pleats. THE LOW - DOWN sweater. The new sweater look is the long, long pullover, sometimes belted, sometimes not. DIVIDED SKIRTS. The pant dress and pants skirt, some with separate matching tops or tunic jumpers, are very important for fashions with an eye to action. CRAZY COLOR contrasts. There's much color mixing in stripes and geometries, usually in neon brights of pimento, purple, rust, gold and electric blue. THE HARDWARE STORY. The industrial zipper, the galosh or snapper closing, brass buttons, chain belts are not just functional but important parts of the fall style message. A Merry Christmas at Home!

Cover the base with tinted clay, moistening to smooth the surface as you put the clay on. Also cover the can lid with the clay.

Bring this to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil the mixture approximately 1 minute or until the mixture resembles moist mashed potatoes. Transfer mixture to a plat* and cover with a damp. clotli. Let it stand until cool enough to knead, then roll it out and cut with cookie cutters or bottle caps or mold freehand to desired shapes or apply it to a container to cover. This pieces of the clay harden overnight but thicker pieces take longer. To hasten the hard-' ening, place the clay on a wire rack in a warm (350-degree) turned-off oven. When dry, paint the clay ol> ject with empora or tempora or water colors. Finish it by dip- Ding the pieces into clear shellac, spraying, it with clear plastic or brushing it with clear nail polish.
