P4.<=O. Tev. (UP)—El Paso valley farmers believe there is little likelihood of the nation adopting alfalfa as a health salad. Hopes for n new market for one of the principal crops of the valley soared when Dr. Victor Helser. author of "An American Doctor's Odyssey," said people should cat alfalfa salad for health. "t have returned from Africa where they are eating alfalfa salad," the nulhorlly on public health said, "it Is delicious and rich In inorganic salts. The body never has enough of these salts. Alfalfa furnishes them." Enthusiastic El Paso gourmets went to fields and fjiUhereu large bunches' of green alfalfa and announced an alfalfa salad luncheon. Prominent citizens assembled at a downtown cafe to watch Chef Andy aeys supervise preparation of the salad. A crowd formed and many necks were craned as the luncheon progressed. A heaping pint* of alfalfa a la Helser was placed before C. R. MorrlU, chairman of the board of county development. He shoved In a large mouthful and chewed vigorously. "They say It makes you feel young," he said. He kept chewing. "Is that tree, doctor?" "It not only has Inorganic salts but alfalfa Is rich In vitamins." said Dr. Felix P. Miller, a luncheon guest. Dr. Miller ate with zest. He used vinegar sparingly, preferring thc natural flavor of the green liay. "Mashed up and put through a colander, this might be all right," Dr. Miller finally reported. "Why not can It?" inquired Dr. Robert B, Homan. "Yes, why not?" said Warren Mlthoff, who ale one bite of the ffrecn stuff, then turned to the eggs on thc plate. George Wood, a valley farmer, eallng a steak at thc next table, stared In amazement. "I will deliver alfalfa free lo anyone who wants to eat It," he said. In deference to the spirit of the occasion, hungry guests nibbled at their salads for 30 minutes. Then Chef Beys called for an unannounced but regular lunch. The salad course was officially called "successful"; unofficially. It was pronounced awful, Two Killed In Indiana Mine Blast PRINCETON.
