Call 348-4848 By Connie Shearer Everyone can dine "out," out of doors, that is, and right in your own living room. All you need are glowing, growing things. Nothing can make a table more inviting than a floral centerpiece. But it doesn't have to be an arrangement of cut flowers. Of course, cut flowers are always nice, and, in season, may even be color · coordinated with the china and room decor. BUT WHAT about potted plants as centerpieces. Their color coordinates with any color scheme and nature is always a welcome feast for the eyes. A potted African violet plant set in a plastic-lined strawberry basket or use four baskets filled with the plants (for a gallon of African violets?) placed around a large lilac candle. This can be especially effective if the violets are blooming. Philodendron in a low brass planter can give a look of luxury to a table setting and you can just place a candle in the planter to keep from using a candleholder. * * * IF YOU want to use a potted green plant, but Bibb stucuuier place, "The ftoecbes," near Hbtoo. Miss Bibb'graduated from West Virginia University efA- lege of law, with a doctor of jtuisprudeoce degree. She is a member of the West Virginia Bar.

FAST, LOW COST AUTO LOANS Revised Beef Grades Could Help TENNESSEE AT ROANE MEMBER FDIC By Sidney Margolius Consumer Expert for Sunday Gazette-Mail The U.S. 'Department of Ag- /riculture could help consumers and in fact the entire na' tion by changing its present method of grading beef as it is 'now considering doing. i The present top grades, called U.S. Prime and Choice, put a premium on the amount ; of fat streaks called marbling. ; The fat makes the meat juicy · and also to some extent more tender, expecially when /cooked rare. · But the practice of awarding a higher grade to meat ; with a thicker covering of fat .' and marbling throughout the ·lean, encourages additional feeding of cattle. The extra feeding starts a chain of ev- · : !ents which much of the public ''. -no longer wants or can afford. * * ·* THE ADDITIONAL feed ; ^used to fatten cattle intensi- · .fies the present grain shor- ; tage, and raises the price of beef to you. Too, while this .' costlier fat beef may be juicier, it also is higher in calor- Mes and cholesterol, if that is a problem. Choice grade beef is actually 25 per cent fat. ; Ironically, "Choice" beef does not even have as high- quality nutrition as does the cheaper "Good" grade. Thus. . "Good" beef, which often costs 5 to 10 cents a pound less when you can find it, has 6 per cent more protein, and more iron and B v i t a m i n s than Choice beef. These are expensive nutrients, and iron, especially, is often in short supply in the diets of women and young peo- '. p!e. (The Prime grade is even fattier than Choice, but is sold mostly to expensive restaurants.) The present practice of grain-feeding livestock to get them into the Choice and Prime grades adds to pollution problems. Over 25 million cattle are finish-fed each year How Can I? Q. How can I freshen the air inside my refrigerator? A. One effective method is to take a small ball of cotton, dip it teto vanilla, and place this · a swcer in the refrigerator. · Q. What can I do about white marts on furniture tops caused by heat or liquids? A. Try nUtag some petro- fem jeiy M tfce stain »r ihgiM"* tore nvgfll* on concentrated feedlots, says A.F. Bartsch, director of the National Environmental Research Center in Oregon. Each cow or steer generates as much sewage as 10 to 16 humans, with resultant heavy pollution of streams in many western states. * * * ONE ARGUMENT against revising present grades is that feed-lot operators will be affected financially. Some already are in trouble because the public has reduced meat use (by about 7 per cent since 1972) because of recent high prices. Some of the investors in cattle feeding are, however, well- to-do people looking for the special tax loopholes the government grants to agricultural businesses.'Actual working farmers may need assistance to adjust to a grading system which awards a premium to leanness rather than fat. * * * SOME USDA officials and retailers have expressed concern that housewives' buying habits may need to change if beef grades are changed.. Presently, they argue when a shopper sees Choice beef she knows how it will cook, how it How To Buy will taste and whether or not it fits her needs. There is some evidence, however that should encourage these officials to stop worrying, and go ahead.with the current suggestions to revise the grades. Usually when asked to identify different grades consumers picked the Good or even Standard as the higher grades. Apparently the leaner lower grades looked better to the people being questioned. ::. * * * EVEN IN taste tests conducted by the USDA itself, consumers usually could not distinguish between the grades, although they might have if the meat was cooked rare, the testers believed. About 60 per cent of beef sold, at retail nowadays is Choice grade. You may not always be able, to find Good or Standard grade in stores. Sometimes stores do sell the lower grades under such names as "budget'.' or "Economy" beef. In a few areas such as Chicago and · Dade County, Florida, where stores are required by law to show the o f f i c i a l retail grades, beef is available in some stores under the Good or Standard names. Where available, such grades find good consumer acceptance. Even if the lower grades cost just a little less, they're a better value for many cooking purposes. This Sunday our doors will be open.
