Herds of performing elephants are only a small part of the features of the famous Sells Bros. 3 ring Circus which will exhibit here on Monday, July 9 at the new U. I. U. baseball field with two full and complete performances at 2:30 and 8 p. m: Although it is always a thrill when Sells Bros, magnificent elephant .herds taku .over all thrw rings, few people know much about these mammoth mastodons. Indian elephants are used for circus performances because they are much more intelligent then the Asiatic variety. Circus performing elephants are always fe- m:ile elephants, although they are referred to as "circus bulls". An elephant can do on four hours sleep and then is ready for work during the next twenty hours, and contrary to popular belief many of them relish the taste of tabacco. An elephants food for one day consists of 12T, pounds of hay, 45 to 75 gallons of water, bran, oats, ten pounds of salt, and often fruit or a juicy watermelon as desert. Today, 1'ig Blanche, matriarch of the .Sells Bros, herds is tlu> (argent circus elephant in I'Xislt'iici 1 , rising to n height of eleven feel and two indies at the shoulder and weighing over seven tons.

'Freeze-driecP foods May soon be served During the past week the Fayette Cardinals won two games and dropped one in the "Registerland" Conference. On June 14 Jim Timmerman stopped Strawberry Point on a no-hitter, 13-0, on the Pointer diamond. Jim didn't allow a man to reach third base as he walked only three and eight Pointers went down via the strike out route. During the game the Cards banged out 10 hits. Ron Timmerman had a triple and a single: Jim Timmerman had a bases loaded triple; Don Timmerman a triple and two singles; Ken Butters a single; Ron Maxson had two singles; and Larry Williams a single.

A new processing method, called "freeze-drying," will make this possible, says Phyllis Olson, Iowa State university extension nutritionist. In freeze-drying, the food is first frozen and then dried in a vacuum that sucks away the moisture as vapor. This leaves the food lightweight and porous - somewhat like a dry cellulose sponge - but retains the orginal flavor, vitamins and bulk. t At present, freeze-dried foods are being tested for military feeding. Twenty-one quick serve meals have been developed, including roast beef slices, meat loaf, roast pork, pot roast and ground meat. These rehydrate quickly in cold or warm water, regaining their normal weight, flavor and texture. Boiling water makes the meat toUgh, just as too high leinjxraturcs do in conventional meat cookery. Pre- fried meat and fish rehydrale in only 10 seconds. Besides being convenient to use and store at home, freeze-dried foods will save shipping costs because they are lightweight and need no refrigeration. Many items already used in dry soup mixes are processed the freeze-dry way - cubes of chicken, meats, and mushrooms. Freeze- dried shrimp are now in use in restaurants and hospitals and will be available for home use someday. Heavy cigarette smoking may contribute to or speed development of coronary heart disease of its complications, says a report by the American Heart Association.

Low-level flights by jet fighter bombers over this area at irregular intervals are part of a new training program for pilots of a Peoria, 111., unit of the U. S. Air Force. The pilots are practicing low- level, circuitous approaches to an air-to-ground firing range near Volk Field, Wise. Federal Aviation Agency and the U. S. Air Force approved the course flown by the pilots, designed to by-pass as far as possible heavily built-up areas and centers of flying activity. Aircraft flying the course are F-84F "Thundestreak" jets from the 109th Tactical Fighter Squadron, a recalled Air National Guard unit based at Greater Peoria airport. Flights are conducted between 500 and 1,500 feet above the ground and at speeds less than 350 miles of sonic booms, according to Major Arthur J. Schertz, squadron commander. The course is used only when weather conditions allow more than 3,000 (oot ceilings and five mile visibility, he said.
