PAGE 2 CARIBOO SHOPPER NOVEMBER 12, 1970 2 MILES SOUTH TRAILER SALES LTD. WILLIAMS LAKE, B.C. ON HIGHWAY 97 She wears boots while cooking... Jean White cooks with her boots on. Western boots, that is. Jean White is the home economist for Nabob Foods, one of Western Canada's largest food manufacturers. It may be poetic licence to say she cooks with her boots on --butitdes- cribes the busy, busy time she has in testing and serving up recipes for scrumptious menus with a Western flavor. This fall marks the second anniversary for theHomeSer- vices Department of Nabob Foods. It is also the anniversary of the birth of Jean White as nom de plume for the home economist charged with the responsibility of keeping in touch with consumers — not only in the matter of producing unusual recipes, but in answering queries of all kinds. Adults suffering from allergies write to Jean White for special diets and curious children ask how you get peanut butter in the jar. The current Jean White is Jan Peskett, a graduate home ""nnnmist and dietitian. She heads a group of specialists who assist the company's marketing team in home testing everything from the type of package planned for a new product to a recipe for baked coffee doughnuts. The wide range of consumer requests make it necessary for Jean White to keep contact with educational programs and developments in home economics. She feels the HomeServices Department should be able to supply the answers to most queries. She says, "We hope the Western Consumer feels that she is important to our Company and that we are concerned about her. We need her reactions toourproducts at all times. Even if it means wearing boots 24 hours a day." Nice gal, warm home unbeatable One day, while discussing the value of charm, George Bernard Shaw remarked, "If a woman is charming, she. needs nothing else; if she isn't, nothing else will help her". The same thing can be said of your home. If it is comfortable, it doesn't need expensive furnishings; if it isn't, nothing can help it. The most important feature with regard to comfort is its heating system. According to the Canadian Hy- dronics Council, unless a home is equipped with a balanced heating system which maintains uniform temperatures within each room it will be either underheated and drafty, or overheated and stuffy. The house should be warm even when the thermostat is satisfied, the Council points out, adding that in a Fluid Comfort (modern hot water) heated home, baseboard heating panels are installed all around the house, setting up a barrier against cold air and drafts. The finest combination, obviously, is a charming woman in a comfortable house. And how!! All wrapped up for winter is ireckle-faced Carol Newsham of Quesnel. Carol, like hundreds of young Cariboo women, anticipates an enjoyable season of winter sports. This month's Cariboo Shopper includes a special section on wintertime's fastest- growing sport--snowmobiling. IWinter apparel courtesy Willlis-Harper's Top of the Towr •Fashion floor.

Then protect it with a bright cover—also well tied down. Check trailer-hitch and lights before leaving. Make sure all equipment is securely fastened to the trailer. ^£ Travel with extreme caution in unknown areas. Watch ahead for barbwire fences, especially in areas of poor visibility. Again, we suggest following marked trails which have been provided for your convenience. A trailblazer symbol, which denotes snowmobile trails, appears above right. If you are traveling with a companion, it is always added safety insurance to have one person watch for traffic while the other person crosses with the snowmobile. Come to a complete stop before crossing any street or highway. Cross only at a 90 degree angle to the roadway, and remember that traffic always has the right of way. Some provinces may require a drivers license or have regulated on ;the age of an operator who can legally cross the roadway. Again, we suggest thorough knowledge of local regulations. Store The Boatr — Tune The Snowmobile! The arrival of Fall, traditionally, brings on .a feeling of nostalgia for the warm summer days left behind—and a flurry of activity to prepare for the rigors of winter. Now for many families, however, there's a happy change: Winters may be as rigorous as ever, but for snowmobiling families the arrival of snow heralds a whole new season of pleasure. Now it's merely "Store the boat—and tune-up the snowmobile!" Like boating, snowmobiling is an ideal family recreation, requiring no special athletic or mechanical skills. Similarly ideal, this booming winter recreation gives families—especially those in large cities—a fun reason to get out into, the fresh air of the countryside and experience a refreshing new contact with nature. Most important perhaps, what otherwise might be a dreary season of "hibernation" is transformed into a bright season of envigorating trips thru the snowy countryside, impromptu races, skijoring, snow- polo and other exciting winter sports. For these million families the usual nostalgia of Fall is replaced by the happy anticipation of a new season of fun— via a well-tuned snowmobile! •** ". Eldorado Resort open house planned The Eldorado Resort on Bouchie Lake now carries two lines of snow mobiles as well as the Skipper All Terrain Vehicle, and Chrysler outboard motors and boats. As soon as the snow comes to the Cariboo; Cliff, Thelma and Ken F alio on, managers of the Resort will host an open house at Eldorado to demonstrate and display the newest models of Sno-Jet and Star craft Snowmobiles. Coffee and donuts will be served and descriptive brochures will be available. The time and date of the open house will be announced at a later date, so watch for- it in the Observer as it will be enjoyable to young and old. The 1971 Sno Jet on display at the resort is one of the many models from which you can choose, depending whether or not you are a racing enthusiast or want to take the family out for a cross country ride through some of the Cariboo, which is idealy suited for snowmobiling with its forests, river valleys, back roads and farm land. You name it and Sno Jet's new Super-Jet widetrack has got it in spades. Broad 18 1/2" track lays down almost 1200 square inches of nylon- steel-reinforced heavy-duty rubber for super-stability, traction and flotation! There's no snow or terrain that the 396cc-27 hp or the 634cc-35 hp can't master. Stretch work or play hours into the night with powerful dual headlights, standard. And heavy duty dual brakes come with the 634cc. Again, all the Sno Jet goodies: 5" deep foam seats, rear storage, non-glare cowl console- plus the great Sno Jet "Namedropper track".Quiet muffler and speedometer standard. Where else can you get all this and a wide- track, too? The switch is on to Sno Jet '71 at Eldorado Resort, Bouchie Lake. Is* ..
