This year. May has also brought unusual ups and downs in the total food picture. MKAT SUPPLY Beef. pork. and broiler supplies have increased enough to be large rthan a year ago. Turkey sunplies, normally lou in the s p r i n g and summer, arc the largest on record for thi month. Milk production, though below last May's level is above hat of other recent months. Farm prices for meat and loultry dropped several weeks ign. Lower prices are being )aid to producers for C 1 a s s I roducts move through markct- ng channels, some are absorbed by higher processing, wholesaling, and retailing costs. Others actually do reach consumers. Bccaus'e of several instances in which lower farm costs are reaching retail counters, grocery prices are again chang- ng from week to week. The result is a more normal price relationship within each lood group than we've seen in almost a year. PROTEINS PRICE Fluid milk prices may not change with the seasonal peak in milk supply. Some drop in price is expected, however, tor cheese, butter, and non-fat dry milk. N'ot only are meat prices looking like the ones we saw 15 to 18 months ago. a normal cost relationship is returning among moderate cost and more he less expensive cuts of beet and pork.

Now the supply is tiore in line with demand, steak and pork chop prices are dropping; but the big news is n the 79-to 89-cent ground beef, varied lower prices for ham, and correspondingly moderate prices for beef pot roasts and fresh pork shoulder roasts. The bony cuts of beef that were once considered economical lor stews are still exensive by com- arison to pot roasts. Also easing back in the direction or normalcy is the price of prepaed sausages, fesh pok sausage, and bacon- Such prepared sausages as frank- expensive cuts of read When meat simply fell meat he'ow demand, consumers attemptec to hold the budget line by using Arkansas the same products that were once sold as "all meat frankfurters" or "all meat bologna." When the present price of bologna is compared with former prices of all meat bologna, the difference is not as great as it seems when present bologna prices are compared to previous prices for the product that formerly carried that name.

New Valencia oranges are in m o s t produce counters now at a lower price than that for popular navel oranges, Valen- cias are juice oranges, but they compete more favorably with navel oranges for dessert and salad use than do other juice oranges. Surely, for Arkansas natives, the big excitement in fresh produce is a second week of Arkansas strawberries. The surprise of the week, in some stores, is the display of early Arkansas peaches. While fresh strawberries are available most all year, homegrown berries increase interest their use. Appearance of Arkansas berries differs from that of varieties from other areas, but quality signs are similar for all varieties. The finest flavored berries are clean, bright, and glossy. If they are to be served immediately, it is important that.they have an overall red color, though bright, glossy berries Beta Sigma Phi Chapter Presents Scholarships monies tailed iresident May 14.

Big berries have much eye appeal and take less time io prepare than little onixs. However, small ones of the same quality taste just as good large ones and may give higher yield. Berries w i t h dull surfaces, soft spots, or decay give low yields and are usually off-flavored. BUY CAREFULLY IT's a good rute to buy no more berries than you can use within a day or two and see that they aren't spilled or mashed in your grocery bag. When you get the berries home, carefully pour them into shallow pans or trays. Remove any that arc spoiled. If they have reached the desired slate ot ripeness, store them unwashed in the refrigerator a tightly covered container. If some need further ripening, spread those out at room temperature until they are red all over; then refrigerate. Just lief ore using, wash berries gently and quickly in a bowl of cold water or under running water. When berries stand in water, they lose color and flavor. Tf you're preparing several quarts for preserving, perforated boxes may be held under running water. This flushes away particles of dirt.
