A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE THE LOGANSPORT PHAROS-TRIBUNE A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE Flavor Problems Stump Scientists questions discussed at the convention here of the flavor, of course. But what is flavor? Do strawberries taste the same to everyone? Those were among the many fascinating recent American Council of Independent Laboratories. The problem of flavor and how to preserve it is the direct concern of a young New Yorker. Murray Berdick, a Ph.D. working for Evans Research and Development Corp. The matter of flavor has been a puzzler to scientists for a long time. They know it's a combination of chemical materials — the flavor of strawberries is made up of some 40 different chemicals. TULSA, Okla.—(UP)— Why dojning ,and last of all is dehydrat- most people like strawberries? The " used method O f preserving food, radiation, is a big question mark. "Some foods keep their flavor when preserved by radiation, others lose their flavor quickly," he said. "Perhaps a way will be found to keep the flavor uniform through radiation." Family Has Snake Problem in House WILLIAMSVILLE, When the family of N. Y. — Edmund M. Wuenst, Jr. bought an old house here last year it didn'.t figure on having any unwelcome occupants. Such as snakes. The Wuensts ' didn't think too much of tiie matter when they | lome j n Stockton, Calif. some iu aiuereiu cnemicais. *""*-" WL me Jt ian.v.i -^.^^ v »~j These chemicals, Berdick said,' found a three-foot snake^ shortly are translated into flavor through taste and smell. But people tastes vary greatly, and it is not known for sure if everybody reacts to taste in the same way. The U. S. Department of Agriculture is now conducting experiments with strawberry flavor and the American Coffee Institute is doing the same thing with coffece. "We don't know how to recreate the flavor of'strawberries, using the exact same chemicals that nature does, because, even though •we know which chemicals are present we don't know in what quantities," said Berdick. Artificial strawberry flavor isn't quite the real thing, though it may seem so, Berdick added. • The biggest problem is how to preserve the flavor while preserving the food. Sometimes food can be kept safely for long periods of time, but the flavor won't stay put. "Freezing is the best known means of preserving flavor," Berdick says. "That's second only to the fresh Item. Next comes car;- after moving in. But things got worse this year. They found three more in the basement—anc got rid of them. But when one was discovered in the. kitchen at. breakfast time one day, Mrs. Wuenst decided she kneeded help. But all she got was sympathy. She telephoned the.Ambert police department, which referred her to the Buffalo Zoo. "The zoo," said a dejected Mrs. ^ Wuenst, "said it couldn't sendj anybody out—but would be glad to see the snakes if we bought them in." Prisoners Buy Toys For Orphans FOLSOM, Calif. - (UP) — The spirit of Christmas invaded the grim walls of California's maximum security penal institution — Folsom prison. Inmates of the prison hoarded their money, a commodity that is hard to come by inside the walls, to make it a Merry Christmas for kids at a nearby orphanage. The convicts used the money to buy toys — not necessities which would be bought anyway—for some 50 children living in a non-sectarian, non-denominational orphan co; also for stamps to maintain .heir ties with the outside world. But most of the convicts, all at least two-time losers, dug deep into their modest stores to pay for the kids' Christmas. "Gifts for those who get no gifts" was the slogan used for the drive. Th:'s year, the paper said, donations were not limited to money, Hobby workers also contributed articles to the cause. The prisoners, many of them graduates of orphanages, said they hoped their project would keep some of the kids now in the Stockton home from completing the cycle to Folsom.

A Long Ride PROVO, Utah. — College student Douglas Hardy, 19, supplementing a light diet with sugar lumps, pedaled, his bicycle 750 miles from Sterling, Alberta, Canada, to Provo averaging 100 miles a day except for a one-day delay because of a blizzard at Helena, Mont. "It was a wonderful trip, but I don't think I'll do it again," hi. said. THE ACCENT SHOP and JEANNE'S BEAUTY SHOP 104-106 3rd St. According to the inmates' newspaper, The Folsom Observer, the Yuletide project began quietly last year and worked so well that it was made an annual event. The Christmas party was the prisoners' own idea, devised by the inmates' advisory council. Almost $1,000 was collected last year from convicts who earned the money at two, four and six cents an hour in the prison shops, or received it as gifts from friends. The Observer emphasized that money is not a useless thing to the prisoners. They need it for tobac- I hope that Santa's Pack is gift-full of Holiday Joy lor all my friends. Ulysses S.
