And, when a guy asked me recently: "How'd you like to attend a turtle feed1" I thought he was planning a trip to the zoo . . . Somehow, I'd never thought of turtle as the main course on a menu . . . Turtles always impressed me as: A reptile that races hares . . . A pest that steals your fish bait . . . A brand of wax . . . But sure enough, these men eagerly seated themselves it a table and said "Bring A ) I on the turtle" ' I fk 1 I I sat there feeling a little like the guy I J JJ J waiting his last meal on death row . . . paas But the feeling disappeared when the platters of brown, crusty turtle appeared. It looked and tasted delicious . . . The light and dark pieces had a flavor akin to that of chicken . . . A saee once nointed out that Americans miss a lot of good eating because they're so finicky . . . Orlv a few hardy souls (such as Dr. Eugene Garbee, president of Upper Iowa College! are willing to experiment with native foods . . . Dr. Garbee has published a book of wild game recipes that Includes such delicacies as Iowa corn-fed coon, roast beaver, squirrel and are you ready? sparrow pot pie . . . Not having sampled all of Dr. Garbee'i recipes, I can recommend turtle. Several places tn the Waterloo area sell It. dressed and ready for the itovt . . . In case you're interested, an expert cook tells me you prepare it this way ... (Aprons on, uh-one, uh-two . . .) Shake the turtle pieces in a sack containing flour mixed with salt and pepper (a dash of paprika adds zest) . . . Fry it in butter and oil, or shortening (butter is recommended). While the burner is on "high" turn the turtle in the butter to coat, it with that rich, brown crust . . . Then, like chicken, let it simmer until done. An hour usually does it . . . So folks, skip those beef and taters tonight. Try something different ... Come out of your shell ... and have a little turtle . . . A Case of Skepticism? The Rev.

The renovation Includes three blocks at the southern end of Main St. in the downtown area and four blocks at the north end of Main St. plus adjacent areas.
