Page 6 Garden City Telegram Tue§day, November 9, 1977 Sweet Potatoes Traditional With Turkey Sweet potatoes and winter squash are traditional go- alongs with the holiday turkey or ham, probably because in days gone by they could be taken from the home garden and stored for the long winter. They also happen to be delicious eating when imaginatively spiced. Spiced Sweet Potato Casserole and Spiced Stuffed Acorn Squash recipes are given below, just in time for holiday dinners. Both of these sweet yellow vegetables are spiced with the so-called "sweet spices" — allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon. Or, depending on preference, cloves, ginger, or mace may be used instead. And if you can't make up your mind, remember that apple pie spice and pumpkin pie spice are blends of some of these esteemed spices. These same spices can be used effectively with carrots, parsnips, red cabbage or sweet-sour red beets. If green vegetables are your "dish" you may want to herb them. Basil, marjoram, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, savory and thyme give subtle aroma to many vegetables and there, too, you Socialite LAPM Garden City Covert No. 4, Ladies Auxiliary Patriarchs Militant had its regular meeting November 25 in I.O.O.F.

Erma Bombeck's AT WIT'S END Gone The Complete Cycle I was standing on the curb the other day when my husband yelled from,,behind the wheel of the car y "Getta'.i" 1 yelled back, "Where do you want me to sit?" He retorted,' "Your usual place." I had to stand there and smile. That was a ridiculous thing to say to a woman who has changed seats in a car every time the gears shift. When we dated, I sat so close to the driver, he looked like he was driving alone. The longer we dated, the more I gravitated toward the passenger side. After we were married, I was all the way over to the door...with the exception of when my mother-in-law rode with us and I was relegated to the back seat. After the first two children were born, I sat with my body draped over the back seat so I could lurch and swat. When a third child came along, I sacrificed my front \Xmricano JEWELRY BOXES (Musical b Regular) window seat and sat between the other two in the back to (a) accomodale everyone with a window seat and (b) to keep them from killing one another. After car pools became a way of life, I slid over to the driver's spot behind the steering wheel, a position I held until my knees locked. I remained there until the children began to drive. Then I moved back to the passenger side where I sat constricted in fear with my right foot on an imaginary brake and both hands on the door handle. When the children left and we began to see grown-ups once again, I was relegated to the back seat with the other woman where it was'assumed we would have more to talk about than the man I married. Some women tell me it isn't over yet. There's the period when you get grandchildren and they ride up front and you sit in the back with the porta- potty and the playpen, and when your daughter gets older, you end up in the back seat with her again. "Are you going to stand there all day or are you going to get into the car?" yelled my husband impatiently. I crawled-over the dog (who insists on sitting by the window where he can hang his tongue out of the no-draft and squeezed in close to my husband. "We've gone complete cycle," I whispered. He hadn't the foggiest notion what I was talking about. ANNOUNCES Noon Luncheon Buffet ALL THE PIZZA AND SALAD YOU CAN EAT... BEVERAGE EXTRA BUFFET OPEN MONDAY THRU FRIDAY, 11:00 A.M.'TIL 2:00 P.M.

Am I square? Am I out of line lo complain? I refer to what goes on in the school corridors between classes. Couples making out like crazy - soul- kissing, touching, rubbing, right in front of everybody. A simple goodbye kiss when leaving for separate classes I can take, but couples fondling and swapping tonsils as if they weren't going to see each other for five years, I can't handle. Today I saw a scene in the lunchroom that made me sick. Would you believe a couple had crawled under the table and were going at it hot and heavy? They had their clothes on but you wouldn't have known it. Your opinion is wanted. - GROSSED OUT DEAR G: If what you report is accurate I suggest you take your complaints to the principal. Such behavior is offensive and the spectators shouldn't have to put up with it. * * * DEAR ANN: I hope my stupidity about taxes will help someone else. Here's what happened: I wailed last year until zero, hour to file my lax return. A friend told me about a man who does taxes. I rushed over 10 him with my W-2, picked up my return on April 15, signed 11 and mailed il, I assumed it wasn't necessary to check it over because the man knew a loi about taxes and I didn't know anylhing. A few months later I received a large refund almost everything that was withheld from my pay. In July I received a letter from the IRS wanting lo see my receipts and cancelled checks. When I gol out my copy of my return I nearly passed out. There were many phony deductions, one of which was inieresl on a home. (I live with my parents.) There were large "church contributions." (I don't belong to a church. I go:wilh my parents on special, occasions.")Ttried to call the man who did my taxes and was told his phone had been disconnected. Fortunately, the IRS auditor believed me when I said I didn't realize my return was full of lies, but he said I was responsible because I had signed it. Ann, I had lo go out and borrow the money to pay back (he refund, plus interest. Why doesn't someone warn LIVE EVERY NITE GRAIN BIN "POLITE FORCE" 9:00 to 1:00 people about crooks who do taxes for people and then disappear? — YOUNG TAXPAYER DEAR Y.T.: YOU reminded Ihem - and in a most effective way. I hope somebody listens. * * * DEAR ANN: Recently a woman wrote that her blood pressure jumped 50 points because her ex refused to pay child support. My blood pressure jumped 50 points because I am paying support money to a woman who walked out on me for a man old enough to be her father. I don't have one .word to say about the way my kids are being brought up and it's killing me. The laws must be changed so a respectable father can gel his children when the mother is a tramp and proves it by her behavior. How tan a woman leach decent morals when she has none herself. I'm broke paying legal bills and can't go back into court again till I have money. In the meantime, I gel sick when I think of what is happening to my kids. - ME AND LOTS.OF OTHERS.
