C. ^ By Ann* Gooda , Apples are so plentiful this year we'll be eating them around the clock. Starting off at breakfast with a tart baked apple and cream or ending dinner with a sweet variety. Strawberry jam and chopped nuts make an ideal filling. Then bake in a sugar syrup made of H cup water, % cup sugar and 3 tablespoons vitaminized margarine. Serve with the remaining syrup., * * * A stitch i.i time — in other words before you wash —prevents rips and holes from becoming larger. Except in socks and sfckings. Mend them after washing. ' - * . * * V_ You can expect a caller some time next April. The census taker is coming around. It's not only humans he's counting. He'll ask you whether you nave a kitchen sink, a television set and the number of hogs and turkeys you own. That is all of vital interest to the Government. * * * For your winter project why not make a knitted rug? It's ideal pick up work. First, convert discarded dresses, underwear and stockings with all purpose dye to shades that harmonize with your color scheme. Then cut % inch strips and knit into four or five inch square blocks. Sew the squares together with the knit rows of one running •cross and the adjoining ones up ana down. * * * Did you know that by adding a handful of the new detergent to the bath water you'll be minus a ring around the tub afterwards? Try it when you bathe Buster tonight. * * * Coffee prices are on the up-grade. Main reason is that world demand is running ahead of supply. New trees are being planted in Brazil but it takes five years for them to mature.

His plans were interrupted, and he worked two years between his freshman and sophomore years, in a drug store, where he stored up rich experiences in his daily contacts with people. "I like people, all kinds," he said, and which it is easy to believe. To Honduras Next followed a year in Honduras in Central America as timekeeper on a banana plantation, for the United Fruit Company. His friends applied to -him the title of "Banana Cowboy". The story got around when he returned to the states that he had thumbed a ride with Lindburgh who was at that time on a goodwill tour around South America. Actually, Mai says, lie came back on a freighter. Mai was rather eager to return to the states and to see Miss Annie Way, an anaesthetist X-ray technician at the Worcester Memorial hospital in Worcester. He had met her on a blind date, spent the next three years trying to get her to say "Yes." When he went to Honduras, the boys kidded him by saying, "She won't wait. She'll write a few letters and then forget." But the letters kept coming, and Mai resumed his campaign of the heart at closer range. Finally she did any yesi, and they were married June 22, 1929. After his Central American experience he went to work for the American Telephone Company and spent five yean? cable testing. His work took him from town to .town, and included 1 a year at St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, on a special assignment. His work experiences have been both interesting and varied. For a time he worked at odd jobs and for more han a year, during the Depression he operated a studio on a concession basis in chain stores in New York City, and in Wooster, Mass. Following that he accepted a job driving a truck for two months, but stayed on it for ten years. He became interested in traffic work and transportation problems and decided to study traffic management, and the next venture was a course in the sub-, ject from the LaS.alle Extension University. During that time the trucking industry. caSme under the jurisdiction of the Interstate Commerce Commission. Promotions ' In Dece'miber 1943. Mai Wilson came to work in the traffic division of the Naugatuck Synthetic Plant of the U. S. Rubber Co.. where he was a driver on one 01 the electric trucks. He is now supervisor of traffic at the plant, and a member of the New Haven Traffic Club. In sug-geisting to him his part in the development of the Community Club, Mai quickly said, "I greatly admired Joe DeLuca and all the others who helped, and I a<m happy to be a part" "Many of the Glenridge residents have became a solid part of the borough, like great oalcs whose roots reach far into the earth." Then he pointed with pride to the fact that the West Side Community Club, of which he is now President, has a list of 100 volunteer blood doners. Any person in the area who needs a replacement may notify the secretary of the club and the hospital and the blood will be at once replaced.
