· If inflation has put a bite into your food budget there's a simple remedy: Start canning and freezing your own food. By "putting up" vegetables and fruits that are cheap and plentiful now, you can save as much as half what you normally spend in the winter on such items. How do you do it? A new book, entitled Home Canning Freezing, by Jacqueline Heriteau, tells you everything you need to know about the subject --whether ifs freezing eggs or canning cauliflower. Both first-timers and old hands at putting up food will find the book packed with practical information. Clearly illustrated directions guide you step-by-step through the canning and freezing processes. Handy reference lists specify what equipment you need; how much produce to buy to make the quantities you want; what method of canning or freezing is best for your favorite meats, vegetables and fruits; and how long you can store particular foods on your pantry shelves or in your freezer. Did you know, for example, that an unfrosted cake can be kept in your freezer for six months without deteriorating, but cottage cheese can be kept frozen for only about one month? Along with practical tips like these, the book offers more than 90 tantalizing recipes. Think of how good cinnamon pears will taste on Thanksgiving, or how excited your friends will be when you give them a Christmas gift of homemade zucchini or rhubarb preserves? PARADE is offering Home Canning Freezing to readers at a special price of $1.50 plus 25 cents mailing charges. Thaf s the first of many budget-stretching benefits you'll enjoy with this valuable book.

Gradison of Ohio and instructor /noon Rhee bow to each other. against the popular Young was that he was too old. The word was spread that by the end of his term, Young would be 83 and may not be vigorous enough to effectively serve the needs of North Dakota. But mysteriously, photos began to appear around the state showing Young in karate stances--kicking, punching, jumping--and North-Dakotans decided that Young, indeed, was still young enough for them. The question reverberates through the great Capitol complex: Who is the champ? Some say it is the deep-chested, tousle-haired Burdick. Others contend that at 67, Burdick is not the torpedo he once was. The question may be answered by the bout between Burdick and Stevens on Sept. 14, and by other matches between Congressional Odd Jobs on the same card. Daily training Burdick and Stevens--pitting size, strength and experience againsfspeed, agility and youth--are both training daily for the September showdown. Burdick is running every day and says . he will lose 20 pounds by fight time. Ted Stevens will get ready for Burdick by spending the August Senate recess taking private karate lessons. He puts on a convincing show of bravado, yet confesses: "My wife says I'm crazy to get in the ring with Burdick." There are some who claim that the uncrowned King of the Congress is neither Burdick nor Stevens, but Congressman Dick Ichord. Ichord is already a three-board man, one who can br^ak a stack of three boards with one kick. At age 49, he is feared for his sidekick (the stomp that goes out to the side). It was he who once stunned Burdick with a karate punch to the head. There is talk of matching Ichord against the victor of Burdick vs. Stevens. The 94th Congress, it may be said, has not produced much legislation, but it is generating a lot of excitement As Burdick told us, "Karate is one of the best things we do on the Hill." CONTINUED litter the floor of the Senate gym during practice. Remembering that Congressmen are past masters of sham combat in the legislative chambers, we asked whether the karate matches were on the level. Do they really go at each other? "You bet we do," responded Senator Stevens. "We've surprised more than one observer." And a junior member who understandably prefers anonymity told us: "Where else would you get the chance to take a good hard crack at a party leader or ranking member?" Padding and conditioning notwithstanding, there are occasional injuries. Congressman Wolff fractured his wrist delivering a clenched-fist blow. For some time he went around the corridors of Congress with his hand in a cast, wryly complaining: "There's too much political arm-twisting going on around here." And according to a usually reliable source, the redoubtable Burdick aimed high but hit low, landing a most distressing groin kick. Here the veil of Senatorial secrecy has been drawn about the'incident; our investigators have been unable to crack the identity of the victim but have been told that his smile is exceeding thin. The benefits More typical, however, are stories of the benefits attributed to Congressional karate. Congressman Bevill. feels that his karate conditioning averted serious injury and perhaps death, when he was in the Alabama bus accident that recently befell a Congressional delegation. Bevill was sitting up front, and a steel rod plunged into his stomach right below the chest cavity. His karate-, toughened stomach muscles contained the rod, and he escaped without injury. Seventy-seven-year old Milton Young, who in 1974 was reelected to a fifth term by a narrow margin, may owe his Senate seat to his training sessions. The most telling campaign argument 14
