Many Cut Back the Frills to Eat Well By Gaynor Maddox (NEA Writer) The higher cost of food is causing many husbands to stop and ponder. Can they continue to demand their favorite foods despite inflation? Or will they compromise by eating well and sacrificing other frills? Here are the attitudes of several married men. No Times Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, June 27, 1974 5 sales and use every food coupon available." Another husband lives in a fashionable Connecticut suburb. His house is on Long Island Sound. He is always optimistic, church-going, very much the family man. He is also part owner of a large wives were present when we publicity agency. And his interviewed them. favorite food is shrimp. An Italian handyman, 30, "1 love steak, too. But only with take-home pay of around $130 a week, a wife who does not work and a three-year-old daughter, likes best to eat a large hero sandwich and a cup of coffee for lunch — but at a lunch counter. Next he likes scallops. Both are costly, he admits. So he does not buy new shoes often, gets his suits and shirts at the thrift shops and eats lots and lots of spaghetti dishes at home. A newly married man, 28, a candidate for his doctor of philosophy degree and working part time, and his young wife, working full time — their combined incomes now are around $17,500 — admits somewhat blushingly that roast beef and Maine Lobster are his favorites. But he has catholic food tastes — likes almost everything that is good. "Right now lobster is definitely off my list. But we do get roast beef occasionally. Big event! We go in for chicken, salads once a day, and several cans of beer for me. But here's where we save — a little less beer each day, instead of the delicate Boston lettuce we now use iceberg — it lasts longer without wilting. Chicken is less costly than beef. We are careful to buy what is offered on weekly in restaurants where they get better meat than our local butchers do. I love chicken, too, and country ribs. Barbecue them myself every weekend — winter and summer. "We are avid fishermen and .during the summer, fish for many of our meals. That cuts down food bills. Also, I like the casseroles my wife concocts. And the wok dishes — Chinese and Japanese ideas are much cheaper. And my wife experiments with new recipes all the time. She often combines chopped beef with hydrated textured vegetable protein (soy beans). It is a good way to cut costs of a dish by about one quarter. I also like it." We asked advice from the head butcher at a well-known meat market in New York where only the best meat is sold and at high prices. He cautioned against buying veal, lamb, and then beef. All are high, in that order. "For myself," he says, "I always want a thick steak and good scotch. I can afford them. Otherwise, I suppose I would have to ask my wife for chicken, smoked or fresh ham and a loin of pork. Not pork chops, too expensive." In Joint Flight — First soviet cosmonauts selected for the joint U.S.-U.S.S.R. space mission are flight engineer Valery Kubasov, left, and commander Alexei A. Lenov. The two have joined the "prime" flight crew of the Apollo-Soyuz test project mission now in preparation at Houston's Johnson Space Center.

Federal The Iowa Bookshelf THE INNER GAME OF TENNIS. By W. Timothy Gallwey. (Random House, $6.95) This is a fascinating book which can change your tennis game and your life. The tennis pro author claims that the constant "thinking" activity of the ego-mind, which he calls Self 1, interferes with the doing processes of the unconscious mind, the doer, which he calls Self 2. Only when the mind is quiet and non-judgmental can there be harmony between the two; and only then is peak performance possible. He equates this kind of performance with the "peak experience" described by the pioneer humanistic psychologist, Abraham Maslow: when a person feels "at one" with the here and now experience, non-striving, fully functioning, non-needing, non-wishing, integrated. Drawing also upon Zen and Yoga techniques, Gallwey urges the player to concentrate on the seams of the ball — a far cry from the usual admonition "keep your eye on the ball" — and explains that quitting the mind means less thinking, calculating, judging, worrying, fearing, hoping, trying, regretting. All these emotion-charged thought inhibit the natural function of the computer-type action of the body which will place the ball properly over the net when directed to do so with the proper "remembered" and minimal muscle-use. There is much more to this fascinating doctrine and this reviewer is on her way to try trusting Self 2 on the court. — Marv Ann Riley DIRTY BUSINESS — THE CORPORATE-POLITICAL MONEY-POWER GAME. By Ovid Demaris. (Harpers) The conventional thesis that big business interests greedily exploit the rest of us, largely through subversion of governmental processes, is given further support by the author of The Green Felt Jungle and Captive City. Reviewing in detail the major scandals from Teapot Dome through the multiple troubles of the Nixon Ad m Inistration this ex-newspaper reporter scathirigly explores the many routes of Dusiness-government hanky-panky: contract letting, tax concessions, subsidies, campaign contributions, regulatory abuses, etc., etc. Mr. Demaris indulges in much over-simplification, sweeping generality, and sarcastic invective; but there is substantial fire in all the smoke. The bulk of his research has beejn in old newspapers and periodicals which accounts for the illusion of having read a prolonged patchwork of feature stories.
