Is thai true and if so, why? A.: In general, that is true. The only exception is so-ca!led "freshhams," which have been neither smoked nor cured. They more closely resemble fresh pork and, if properly wrapped, may be stored in the freezer up lo eight months. There are two main reasons for not freezing most hams and other cured meats such as bacon or cor.ied beef. In the first place, highly-salted meats tend to become rancid rather quickly. And secondly, freezing lends to adversely affect both the flavor and texture of cured meats. But situations do arise in which it becomes impossible to use up a piece of ham before it would spoil under ordinary refrigeration. In these cases, the ham may be frozen but should be used within a month. Incidentally, freezing processed meats, such as luncheon meats and frankfurters, way also break the emulsion in these products, causing them to ''weep." Q.: t »ou)d like lo know whether more nutrients are retained when vegetables are cooked in a pressure cooker than when they are cooked by boiling. A.: In general, if properly used, pressure cooking is the method that favors maximum added to an experimental diet being used to feed rats. At that time, it was thought that the zinc appeared to accelerate the rate of healing of burns arid excised wounds. Later, it was reported that oral zinc supplements were effective in healing surgical incisions following the removal of pilonidal cyits in a group of otherwise hea'thy young men. This study was not well- controlled, however, and served to provoke considerable controversy. As might be expected, animal studies since have shown that any beneficial effects of zinc on the rate of tissue regeneration occur only if zinc deficiency was present in the first place. Similar effects have been observed in man. This observation is important because it shows that wound healing does not proceed at an optimal rate unless an individual has adequate b'.ood levels of zinc. But rather than take zone supplements for insurance (in /act, zinc is tone at high levels), it's far wiser to eat a varied diet, ir/duding plenty of fresh and lightly processed foods. Communists took power, the Soviet Union is still campaigning to convince its people that religion Is useless superstition. The campaign is going "successfully," government propagandists say, but there is no complete box score to back the claim up. There are only scattered official assertions, such as one-in l»3 that only 2 per cent of young Soviet citizens believe in God and another this year that at most £0,000 of the country's more than two rail- lion Jews actively practice their faith. Current atheist literature in the Soviet Union, in fact, admits the campaign is still far from over. Just last year, Leningrad officials were alarmed to discover that only 61 per cent of schoolchildren surveyed had a "positive attitude" toward atheism. The rest, the survey found, couldn't give convincing reasons why a person should be an atheist and therefore could not be considered fully .inoculated against religion. The most common Western estimates are that the Soviet Union's 25S million people still include at least 30 million Russian Orthodox believers, 4 million practicing Roman Catholics, a million Baptists and 25 million Moslems. The Soviet atheism campaign ' has a long and checkered history. A few enthusiasts started bulldozing churches immediately afler the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, but the state put a stop to that because it was causing resentment among the population and the buildings could be used for purposes other than religion. The Communist party waged a strong propaganda campaign against religion from 19S to 1M3, when dictator Joseph Stalin cut the effort off because he needed the support of churchmen in Die war against the Germans. The campaign was revived to an extent after the war and again in the late- 1950s, when then Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev believed the country was on the brink of successfully molding the "new Soviet man." 13-year-old youth rescued ST. PAUL. Minn.

Ascorbic acid retention is greater in broccoli and Brussels sprouts cooked in boiling water. Moreover, these vegetables and other members of the cabbage and onion families contain volatile sulfur compounds that are driver, ofi Kten the vegetables are cooked ir. an uncovered pan. When cooked in a covered pan, these sulfur compounds remain in UK water and can adversely affect both the color and the flavor of cooked vegetables. Also many vegetables prepared in a pressure cooker are quite susceptible to color change. This is because chlorophyll, the pigment responsible for the bright green color, is easily destroyed by heat. Since the temperature inside a pressure cooker is higher, vegetables can change fro:n bright green to alive drab if cooked as little as one minute beyond the just-done stage. Prepare your vegetables in ways that your family will enjoy. But for maximum m'.'jitional benefits, it's best to use as little water as possible, keep the vegetables in larg« pieces and cook them only until barely done, regardless of the method you choose. ft: Recently, I was in a health food store where the saleswoman told me that oral zinc supplements are helpful la sealing bums and cuts.

The central press talks little about it, Communist leaders leave atheism out of their speeches and the weallgrvane theoretical Journal Kommunlst hasn't had a major article on atheism for & year. Some speculation in Moscow links the low visibility of the atheist movement to the large amount of Western attention that claims of religious injustices here have received. Other suggestions are that the Soviets are satisfied that religion is no longer a "mass problem" - despite the lines that form at churches at Easter and Christmas. Meanwhile, the Soviet Union's devout believers — "the unconvertible," propagandists of atheism say - claim pressure on them is as strong as ever. They report difficulties getting religious materials, pressure to merge congregations and close churches and harassment of believers who try to pass religion on to their children - despite the Soviet Union's constitutional guarantee of freedom of religion. "There is no religious literature and you can't even try to get it," says one young woman who is an active Baptist. "And the Russian Orthodox, their missal comes out every year in such small quantities that there'sbarelyenoughforonein each church."
