Weight watchers can now nibble on peanuts from which more than half the calories have been removed since the first low - calorie peanuts are now being introduced in stores following the adoption of a process that "squeezes" the peanuts, then restores them to normal size and shape. Right jnow is a good time to serve peanuts to your family while they are in pfentiful supply at lower- than-usual prices. Good values may be found on turkeys and chicken hens. Prices on frying chickens are not quite as low as they were last year, but are good values none-the-less. Even though egg prices are higher this year than usual, they are considered another good protein choice. Large size eggs are the most economical. Beef prices remain higher than a year ago due to the overall meat supply decline and you'll likely see fewer specials on beef steaks and roasts this week. Ground meat is higher due. in part, to low supplies of cows on the live market. You can save money on ground beef if you can use or store two or three pound packages. Cured pork items, ham and bacon prices are Rosalyn <j ow -n a bit partly because of consumer resistance. Produce counters look a bit like spring with such items as i asparagus.

The children think of her not as guardian of the books, but as another helpful teacher. For the librarian is a teacher first and then a librarian. A school librarian should be a certified librarian or be working toward certification. She should also have a broad general education and a bachelors degree . Her duties are many. She must help the students in the library of course; encouraging them in reading for self-enrichment — to expand their interest beyond the classroom. She also selects books; catalogues, arranges and repairs them. At the request of teachers she se- elects collections of books for temporary classroom use. She such coordinates as charts, visual slides aids, and movies. Teachers may need reference materials for specific lessons.

NASA Represent!ve Presents Public Relations Story To B&PW By MARTHA. ANN HEMPHILL Mrs. Mary Beeman, educational representative from the Manned Spacecraft Center, put the frosting on the tax bill when she spoke to Baytown Business and Professional Women Tuesday night. As a member of the public relations team of over 60 civil service employes, Mrs. Beeman speaks to dinner organizations, educational groups and clubs about where their tax dollars are going in the peaceful exploration of space. She traced the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs of manned space adventures as well as listing the unmanned programs such as communications satellites TelStar and Sin- con, weather satellites and power sources. Some of the benefits for men, medicine and industry were noted by the speaker. "It amounts to only 50 cents a week per taxpayer," Mrs. Beeman said, "and that is less than is spent on tobacco or cosmetics." Her job is to get the message to the public through 20 public information centers scattered throughout the U.S. The five branches at NASA headquarters in dear Lake include the news branch which disperses information to reporters. stages news television clips, conferences, photos and stories and maintains the press centers during space flights. The second branch is the educational department which answers about 8,000 pieces of mail cial subjects, work with the Houston School system on science programs and provide two men in a "space mobile" to travel throughout the area presenting talks, lectures and demonstrations. The protocol section plans and escorts tours through MSC from Brownie Scouts to the recent tour made by England's Prince Phillip. They also coordinate conferences. Sunday open houses for the public, and exhibits which travel all over the U.S. An audio visual department maintains film libraries of stills and motion pictures. The historical department compiles chronology and history of the entire process which was begun as recently as 1958. The public relations department reached over 800,000 persons, personally during the month of February, the speaker emphasized, "and that month had only 28 days!!" "W e have a responsibility to the public ana press and the hectic job of working under the glare of the lights," Mrs. Beeman said. "NASA is open to the world; to give the public and press what it wants," she noted. "After all, that's why we are there. You are paying the bills," she closed- After a question and answer session. Mrs. Robbie Burch, public relations committee member of the B&PW presented the speaker a gift. Mrs. Grant Horton was general chairman for the meeting with Miss Odena Childers, co- ohairman.
