Recipe Entries for Contest Vary From Soap to Nuts "Take one 'possum, skin and remove musk glands ..." "Add one can lye . . ." Naturally, these aren't from the same recipe. They represent two extremes found in the entries to the Telegraph-sponsored recipe contest. People have submitted recipes for everything from 'possum with sassafrass to home made soap. The Telegraph recipe contest, which opened June 20 and closes Saturday, has attracted to dale male practitioners of the culinary, art. Either that or the men are afraid to compete with the women. It looks like the backyard barbecuer's association is going to default without even a token fight. With only 26 recipes in the category of outdoor cookery, where we would think the men would have a field day, it looks like a pretty sad showing for the males. Many women have sent in more than 26 recipes by themselves. come up with some new recipes. We have received recipes ranging from soap to nuts; from 'possum to pig's feet. Anybody got any new ideas? a.m. One of the hampering factors in the repair of the sewer break, i immediately south of East Fourth street in Central, was the flow of scalding hot water from St. Joseph's Hospital laundry. A Sunday night was picked for replacing the broken line both because the hospital laundry would be idle and all other flow through the sewer would be at an absolute minimum, said Fiola.

There are a few fish dishes, but there still is a lack of recipes for the preparation of domestic fish. Esoteric bluegill recipes, anyone? From the preponderance of cake and cookie recipes, itj seems that there are a lot of| people around here catering to the proverbial "sweet tooth." j All in all, it looks like the cakes and cookies and the women are, numerically at least, jamming the field. Seems like the men are going to sit around and let this happen with little more than a small whimper of protest. There is still time to enter the contest.

BIRDS OFFER SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT A couple of birds are taking summer life out of the doldrums In the Agnes street and Hillcrest avenue area these days. In one case the residents would like to wring the neck of a strutting bantam, rooster who has been calling reveille and in the other case the Agnes street people have been feeding cracked corn to "pretty bird." Pretty bird is apparently a golden pheasant — something that the people up that way, especially the John Hunter family, haye decided the bird is. It came out of a thicket off the 2000 block of Agnes thii month from goodness knows where. He lince hat been malt, ing a three-times-a-day call at the Hunter home for cracked com. When he doesn't show at the back door, Bin.' Hunter goes to the edge of the ravine and calls, "Pretty bird." He comes ••running. However, he hain't made an appearance in the pait two days, He may have gone on, looking for greener najturei but be dooan't know that cracked com doesn't grow on traei, or •talks, for that matter. , The bantam, on the other hand, better not get close to the (Mop]* M HUlomt, Hi* crowing stop at Tulsa, Okla., and Amar- Grover Teems of East Alton, illo, Tex., where Presbyterian and Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Meis- churches will put them up for j enheimer, of Alton, cousins, the night. The young people are also attended, in the senior high group of the church. 3 CHARGES MADE AGAINST MOTORIST ,2 CAR MISHAPS OF j SAME KIND OCCUR i Two mishaps involving automobiles being rammed from the Three changes were placed I rear were reported over the against a motorist following a j weekend, police said, mishap on E. Broadway which! The first mishap occurred on was preceded by lane-hopping by the driver, police reported Sunday. Jerry E. Wendle, 3006 Wata- lee Ave., was booked by officers on counts of driving while intoxicated, accident, and traffic violation. Patrolman Clyde T. Angel saw the series of lane hopping which began in the 2300 block of E. Broadway about 7:30 p.m. Sunday. He trailed the car to Boz/a street and Washington avenue where the driver was apprehended. In cutting in the final time, police said, Wendle's machine Milton road near Rodgers ave< nue, Saturday, 8:45 p.m. Drivers involved were Peter B. Stuart, 3713 Berkeley Ave., and Lawrence McKenzie, 1628 Rodgers. Stuart said he was sitting in his automobile when the other machine struck his oar from the rear. The other accident occurred in the 3500 block of E. Broadway, 9 p.m., Saturday, police reported. Drivers were listed as Jack Baldrldge, Rt. 2, Godfrey, and William F. Dilley, 3800 Seminary Rd.

There has been a little bit of confusion on one recipe, -the one for soap. We are still trying to figure out just which of the cate gories it fits into. So far; no luck. I suppose that we could ! conjecture that it is cooked in an iron pot outside, and thus I could insert it into the outdoor 'cookery classification, but that seems to be stretching a point. Contributors to the contest vary in age, sex, and locality. We have received recipes from as far away as western Missouri. We have received a recipe from a 9-year-old girl. We have received very few recipes from men, but a few amateur chefs of the a>rea have sent in their bid for fame in the form of an outdoor culinary experiment in taste sensations.
