That may sound "plum" fool-- ish, but, with or without allitj- eration, plum eating is wonderfully pleasant and refreshing. And, the Agricultural Market^ ing Service points out, the na 1 - tion's plum crop this year is 24 percent larger than average. Plums have eye appeal, too. From the pale gold and green glow of the Green Gages and Wic'ksohs'to the crimson Santa Rosas, the 'blood-red Duartes, ihe dusky purple Italian Prunes and Presidents, they form * range of brilliance. There's a.great difference in taste, too, among the varieties--anywhere from quite tart to quite sweet; from very juicy to very meaty. All are good eating. . They'll perk up any meal. Include them in a fresh fruit salad, with peaches, bananas, watermelon and cantaloup. Or frame a mound of cottage cheese with a ring of plum halves for a cool luncheon salad. Or, cook a batch for a colorful compote or a delightful cold fruit soup, adding cherries, peaches, and some lemon for sharper, color and flavor. Sweet plums are delicious with ice cream or whipped cream in a parfait dessert, and equally good with cake and whipped cream in a shortcake. For breakfast tomorrow, have sliced plums with your favorite cold cereal. Or, enjoy a dish of plums in milk or cream, with just a little sugaradded. Any way you serve them, plums are sure to please the most critical palate.

In many Instances, neckbands on the Continental model shirts are higher, but there are many that utilize the popular low sloping neckband as well.
