Markets Featuring Pork Cuts, Preview to the Coming Year WEEKLY POOD REVIEW By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Various cuts of pork wilt be featured in many supermarkets and neighborhood grocery stores this weekend as a preview of 1959. Bacon receives the special treatment in a good number of stores, while other pork bargains will be offered in shoulder roasts, picnic hams and pork loins. Pork prices are expected to decrease next y'ear and appear lower already. Expectations of pork bargains are based on a fall pig crop well above last year, ' which should mean substantially increased hog marketings next spring. A few stores will offer special prices on beef roasts and steaks. Scattered offerings of leg of lamb Uncle Sam Can't Stay Out of Red By FRANK CORMfER WASHINGTON UP) — Spending has a way of happening, whether you like it or not. Ask Uncle Sam. His budget is deeper in the red than ever before in peacetime. Yet even as he plans to economize, experts tell him he's spending more than his budget indicates. For the third time since last summer, government economists have increased their estimates of future federal outlays for goods and services. These are the estimates that give an advance clue to the government's contribution to national output. The fact that they have again been raised indicates federal spending will continue to add zip to the business recovery for at least the next six months. Outlook Clouded Beyond next July the outlook is clouded because it will be several weeks before President Eisenhower sends Congress his new budget for the 1960 fiscal year that begins July 1. A lot depends too on what Congress does to that budget. The odds are, however, that federal spending will remain a significant prop under the economy throughout 1959. In the current fiscal year, the government is spending roughly 80 billion dollars. This compares with about 72 billions in the last bookkeeping year. For Goods, Services About two-thirds of this spending is for goods and services- missiles, trucks, office machines, buildings, pay for federal em- ployes, etc. Money spent in this fashin moves directly into the economy. Six months ago, government economists estimated that federal purchases of goods and services would reach an annual rate of 55 billion dollars by next June. Now they say it probably will be closer to 56'i billions by June. Even if Congress and the administration hold the line on spending in fiscal I960, a mere continuation of the projected April-June level would produce an average of 56Vi billion dollars for calendar 1959. A Big Boost That would mean an increase of about 3',-> billion dollars over the 1958 average — enough to be a significant plus factor in the 1959 economy. With a $12,200,000,000 deficit fore- fast for the current fiscal year, the new Congress will hear plenty of talk about economy in government. As in 1958, however, the administration and Congress may discover that spending tends to happen faster than expected. and frying chickens also are on tap. Butter prices shaded a penny or so higher in a few sections this week, but egg prices again are down two to six cents a dozen over a wide area. It's largely a seasonal swing. Potatoes again head the bargain list of fresh vegetables. Other outstanding buys are mushrooms, endive, escarole, turnips, beets, carrots and radishes. Good buys are available in 1 e 11 u c e, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, yellow onions, sweet potatoes, cabbage, spinach and sweet corn. Green squash, tomatoes, peppers and broccoli are a fair buy, produce men say. Oranges and grapefruit are on the bargain list. Good fruit buys also include northwest pears, California grapes, Florida limes and coconuts from the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Hunter, 5, Causes Extensive Search ONANCOCK, Va.

Wants Beach Party for Horses i During the American Revolution the name "cowboy" was given to some American Tories •who stole from the colonists. Mo one knows when the term rwas first applied to men whose work was tending cattle. It lias, however, become the pop- ttlar name for men who take care of cattle, particularly on western ranches. v C Encyclopedia Brltanntca LIONEL TRAIN SALE All New • SETS 50% OFF DEAN WHITE HE 3-3649 200 iourhwood Road By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Mary Simpson, known as the Elsa Maxwell of the pet world, has an odd professional ambition. She wants to throw a beach party for horses. "A beach is an ideal place for such a party," she explained. "Horses love the surf, but most of them rarely get to visit a beach." Throwing parties for animals is now a career for this pretty, blue- eyed blonde. Miss Simpson, an employe of the Hess Bros, department store in Allentown, Pa., is the world's only pet party consultant — at least as far as she knows. But Mary, a college graduate who majored in Far Eastern history, doesn't think of her job as odd. She has loved animals all her life, enjoys catering to them. "People have been throwing parties for their pets for some time," she said, "but it has been on a rather haphazard basis." ' Miss Simpson likes to go over the animal guest list in advance- lust as a professional Washington social hostess might. "Animals don't differ much from human beings at a party," she observed. "They catch the air of excitement. They have their showoffs and their wallflowers. You have to be sure the guests will get along. "So far I haven't supervised a party where we mixed canaries, parakeets and cats and dogs. But we've had a number of cat and dog mixed parties that come off very well." ite games, Mary said, are "bone scramble" and "hide the meatball." What should you give a pet as a birthday party present? "The best present for a bird is another bird," said Miss Simpson. "The best way to surprise a cat or dog is to get it another toy like the very first one it ever had. It will remember—and be pleased. "You can also get it a copy of some object it likes around the lauiuc uujcuu H imes arouna me The fact a dog chases a cat house but has been forbidden to outside the home has no bearing on how they will get along at a party. After they get to know each other, they behave very well. Cats and monkeys also get along well at parties." she said. Jealousy arises only when the play with — such as a slipper, lady's hat, rubber, or braided rug. But it is essential that you first use the object yourself, so that the pet will associate it with you. Otherwise he won't care for it." guest pet of honor gets all the' CONTEST ELECTION presents-or when two dogs wantj WATERLOO, Iowa W - Mel A. to show off at the same tune. | Bond, Waterloo Democ , at> g a ; d 'As at a children's party- cau-; Wednesday he planned to contest noned Miss Simpson, "it ,s m^the Nov. 4 election in which he portant that all the guests receive; lost to Bernard R.
