Store Foods Carefully MANHATTAN — Proper Storage temperatures affect storage of home canned and frozen food quality, too. frozen foods is important to Although nutritive losses protect their quality. But occur slowly, the rate of loss many new homes aren't increases at above-zero designed to provide the right degree temperatures, the kind of storage for canned specialist notes. Beside foods, says Grace Lang, ex- nutrition, the food also loses tension foods preservation color, texture and flavor more coordinator at Kansas State rapidly at higher temp- University, eratures. For example, at 10 Although proper canning degrees, the quality loss in two protects food from spoilage, months is as great as the changes in the color and losses for a year at zero nutritive content can occur degrees, over time. These changes occur more rapidly at higher temperatures. The nutrients most easily damaged are Vitamin C and thiamine (Vitamin Bl). For example, canned tomatoes, peas, green beans and juices may lose as much as 25 percent of their Vitamin C if stored at 75 to 89 degrees for a year.

This can be checked with a freezer thermometer. Also, don't open the freezer any more than you need to, she adds. This causes the inside temperature to fluctuate, speeding quality loss.

Store canned foods in an area that has cool temperatures all year, she recommends. The location should be dark and dry also, moisture can corrode jar lids, allowing a chance for spoilage. Also, heat and light can damage the sealing compound on lids. • Which areas are best in homes not equipped with an old-fashioned fruit cellar? You might use cupboards and closets on the home's outside walls, the specialist suggests. These usually remain cooler during the healing season. Sometimes outer basement walls can be used. If you can enclose a basement corner which has two outside walls, that's best. To enclose it, use an insulated partition or construction-grade plastic film. That will keep the canned goods at near ideal condition, Lang says. Avoid any area near the furnace or closets which have heat ducts in their walls, she continues. If you can't find a good storage place for canned food, cut the loss in quality by using the food within a shorter period of time. Under any conditions, it's best to use, canned foods within a year. The same is true for frozen food. Most frozen fruits and vegetables should be used within 8 to 12 months. Calendar of Social Events WKIINESDAY MASONS—7 p.m.. special meeling. Work in first degree.

I am in good health and so is my wife. She is 63 a wonderful person, fine housekeeper, cook, and she did a beautiful job of rearing five children. The problem, sex. On my 63rd birthday she did me the grand "favor" of sleeping wilh me. She then announced thai from now on I'd belter forget aboul sex because, as she put il, "it's obscene for a couple of old fools like us lo carry on like newly weds." I don't feel like an old fool. Although I'm not the man I was 35 years ago, I slill have a lot of pep and am far from dead sexually. Will you put something in your column aboul this subject? I'm sure I'm not the only person in the world wilh this problem and all loo little has been written about il. Thanks, Ann. — MAN ALIVE AT 65 DEAR MAN ALIVE: I could say a great deal about the joys and healthiness of a good sex life that continues through the golden years, but you, and others who share the problem of a negative spouse (sometimes it's the husband), need more than the limitation this space allows. Please spend $1.95 on "Love and Sex After Sixty" by Roberl N. Butler and Myrna Lewis (publisher, Harper & Row). It's a paperback thai tells it like it is and will go a long way toward educating senior citizens in an area where so many need guidance and reassurance. I recommend this book as the best I've ever seen on the subject. * * * DEAR ANN: What's so awful about kissing wilh your eyes open? I'll admit it's a lot more romantic when the eyes are closed, but sometimes my girl and I open our eyes in the middle of a kiss and we both gel a big kick out of it. Also, how does "Looking a Lot in Lansing" know when he has his eyes open if she isn't looking herself? The Eyes Have it In Waynesboro DEAR WAYNE: Several readers wrote to say they keep DRESS SALE WINTER DRESSED REDUCED THIS WEEK ONLY SAVE I heir eyes open when they kiss "to see if someone is coming." 01 hers said closed eyes mean you are fanlisizing aboul someone else. I slill say people who kiss wilh I heir eyes open must gel a little crosseyed. I always close mine. * * * DEAR ANN: I'm a 15-year- old girl with a big problem. It's me. I'm always doing something dumb that could ruin me forever. Same old story: I didn't think of the consequences ahead of lime. My family is trying to build a business for me lo run in the future. I'm O.K. for a while, then I'll do or say something really nutly that could blow it for good. I don't mean lo be slupid or careless, Ann, it just comes naturally. Do you have any ideas thai might help? — GOOFY GLORIA DEAR GLORIA: Fifteen is pretty young to expect lu do everything perfect. 1 think you are being too hard on yourself. A problem recognized is a problem half solved. Analyze where you go wrong. Learn from your mistakes. Stop and 'hink before you act or speak. Sometimes five or six seconds can make a whale of a difference. Try it and you'll see what I mean. Deadline for Sociel Calendar items is B:30 a.m. for same-day publication.
