Mail to KbsiuTH COUNTY ADVANCE, Algona, Iowa * ' ' ' ' "/WK m my VE//VS" By MARIAN INMAN Recently, I added another cook book to my collection. This one, "How Iowa Cooks" is a gift from my friend Esther Witmer of Tipton, Iowa. This book was compiled by the Tipton Woman's Club and is a collection of recipes from people of Iowa.'• .. ' - ••;_•- , ;.- ? .,.: The cover has a drawing of the cornucopia filled to over-flowing with the harvest of Iowa. To quote from their foreward, "The cornucopia is a symbol of abundance. The cornucopia on the cover of 'How Iowa Cooks' is a symbol of Iowa's abundance of food, for our state is recognized as a lea-' 'der in production. Included in this book;are all-time favorites as well as gay idaas and recipes, all part of Iowa's heri- tafeof food." "Recipes gleaned from many other states and countries, from our immigrant ancestors, our vacation travels, our foreign, students and, our own inventiveness are all represented. There is a miscellany of traditional foods set but in a special section, and this tradition continues to be threaded through the various sections, pointing out specialties of many homes." "Not only does our state grow a variety of foods, but we have many industries based on food processing and these staples appear frequently in the cook book." <• "Iowa, Beautiful Land, with field's of corn, pastures of dairy cattle and stocky beeves, acres of rolling hills covered with grain, stretches from the Mississippi to the Missouri. It is intended that the scope of cookery represented in this book be as broad and diverse as the needs and interests of Iowa." In their preface they go on to say that, so far as they knew, no book had been published which offered the favorite recipes of lowan's from every section of the state. One of the pages shows the map of Iowa with a dot marking each community of Iowa represented in "How Iowa Cooks." "Recipes were received from wives of state and national officials, wives of mayors and county fair secretaries, radio anid TV personalities, women who are prominent in professions and, organizations, and women with no claim to fame. One thing they had in common: all were Iowa homemakers with recipes to share." f ';• .-'.'".• -. ';. '• ' ', ''"'• •''.-•'; " '''-.• ~ Each section is faced with a page which has an appropriate sketch, a gay'verse or a quotation pertinent to that particular phase of cooking. Here are a few to give you a sampling: for appetizers, sandwiches and beverages, a one two three sketch of the three and this verse: If you need a bit Of magic, try these and you'll agree, a meal turns out a party, as easy as — one, two, three. And for breads, biscuits and muffins, or homemade bread, makes a house smell like heaven, puts a crown on your head. ']. For desserts, some, frankly fancy, for party or tea — some, very simple, but — good as can be. As you read on and come to meats and casserole dishes, just add a dash of this or that, to be a real "gourmet," a casserole fit for a king, can happen every day. For salads and their dressings, toss it — dress it — or set it to .jell — if you make a good salad, as a cook — you excel. For the miscellany of traditional foods, the page portrays a delightful grandmother making pie crust with grandchildren: peeking over the table top. And this verse, From many countries to our state, our grandmas brought these dishes; a foreign food gives meals a lift — you'll find these just delicious." For corn, the page shows a sketch of an ear of corn and this caption, IOWA — the corn state, our banners do declare. A vegetable, so versatile, such healthy, hearty fare." Here is an excerpt I enjoyed, "A dinner at home need V with the. formality of an embassy Banquet, but 'it I bVan event to be enjoyed. A child may have traveled only .to his first grade class that day, but a traveler returns with some experience, It should never be "Where did you go?" 'Out.' "What did you do?" 'Nothing.' On one of the closing pages called this and that, they quote, Bits of this — and bits of that. And facts and figures too — complete this book from Iowa, may it be a joy to you, I sincerely hope that I have intrigued you and that you will wish for a copy for yourself. This Tipton Womans Ciub group like all worthy community groups help to better their community in many ways, even to an investment in their new "Rest Home." The cost of the book is $2.50 plus 25 cents mailing charge for each copy, plus 5 cents sales tax in Iowa. Send your order to Tipton Woman's Club, Tipton, Iowa. You will never regret that you invested in this delightful, more than a cookbook. "Take time to serve the vegetables, in a variety of ways; Your family will want seconds. And be lavish in their praise."

There are more than 40 beds of roses, each a different variety, with a total of over 1,000 plants adorning the corner. All of the plants are hybrids which have been purchased by the city from a rose dealer in Wisconsin. New arrivals are planted in the early part of May and fed with bone meal around the roots. The first blooms appear in the middle of June. In addition to the roses, there are six beds of asters, five beds of petunias and one large bed of cannas in the garden. Tulips come up first in the spring, and after they have bloomed, the petunias and asters are planted for the duration of the summer. Caretaker Bill Boldridge sees that the plants are dusted and that the beds are cultivated and the grounds mowed. He said he recently talked to a Californian who was traveling across the country taking pictures of roses for a book which he planned to write. The man photographed a cluster of Fire King roses and spoke very highly to Bill of the Algona rose garden. The garden was started some ten years ago by Francis Bunting who had many varieties of roses at his own home and found many persons coming to look at the fine plants. He asked the city if it would be possible to start a rose garden, and the present location, which was formerly a dumping grounds, was developed by Mr. Bunting. The garden is under the auspices of the Park Commission, which includes the chairman, Chuck Sheakley, Chuck Hinken, and Jim Kolp.
