Engagement Told result from it -- are beginning to be pleasantly reminiscent of the past. Instead of a new price record's being set each week as the result of real or claimed short supplies, there's a refreshing return to price ups and downs. Prices for sausage products are drifting downward toward last year's levels, while being ignored by many shop pers who have learned to do without them. Though no one expects very low prices for any livestock product, there's a surpris eeac-h week in the form of some cut of beef or some type of poultry that costs less, instead of more, than it did the sense, room-temperature storage does not increase ripeness. Nowever, when 1 room temperatures, do become less develop a mellow texture. When a pineapple has , week or month before. In produce counters. means peak supplies of apples and May pine- strawberries and reduced supplies of apples and citrus fruits. However, the large fall crop of citrus fruits, supplemented by recently harvested Valencia oranges, is keeping prices in line with those o f winter. Representative wholesale prices of a few year- r ' m d vegetables -- cabbage, celery, carrots and lettuce -have been running below those of a year ago. according to the United Fruit and Vegetable Association Monthly Supply Letter. STORAGE APPLES Time was when few apples were available at this time of year, and those that were available didn't look so good. Present storage methods not only keep apples cool for several months after harvest, the composition of the air the cold storage area is controlled. By redjcing the amount of oxygen in the air and inc r e a s i n g carbon dioxide, ripening is virtually suspended. This is why that apples bought in May can be as crisp ir texture and as fresh in appearance as when they were har vested last fall. One problem however, seems to appear more often in the apple bin now than reached the desired "stage of mellowness, store it in the refrigerator, sealed in a plastic refrigerator container to keep it from drying out and sharing its odor with other foods. To prepare fresh for serving, twist out the top, cut the fruit in half lengthwise, then cut into several Remove core, then cut into Another way unpeeled pineapple then peel each eyes and core.

By measure, that's five cups of. cooked chunks or six to chunks _ _ desserts, or for home freezing. At this week's special prices, fresh pineapple costs less than canned pineapple. The canned product has the advantages of consistent year-round quality and minimum preparation time On the other hand, fresh pine apple offers a special treat that s not usually so available or economical.

Come See Us Receives Award crisp, and, otherwise perfect in appearance may have a bitter flavor. For this reason, it's a good idea to buy one or two from a new supply and try them before buying a l a r g e number. The cold storage apple supply is a record one for this time of year, but apparently no one is in a hurry to sell. Despite cold storage supplies, at leasl one-fourth larger than those of a year ago, wholesale prices have been running about a dollar per carton above those of last spring. PEAK PERIOD PINEAPPLE Fresh pineapple is available several months of each year but May is the peak supply month and the time that price is lowest, fresh pineapple from Arkansas, grocery stores is not likely to have the flavor of fresh pineapple picked from tree in Hawaii or Mexici Nevertheless, fresh pineapple p u r c h a s e d from Arkansas ry stores can be a treat chosen, stored, and prepared with care. U n i v e r s i t y of Hawaii marketing specialists suggest the "thump test" as the surest way to tell whether a pineapple is ripe; but most of us could thump a counter full of pineapples into pulp without recognizing the dull sound that's supposed to mean ripeness. Aroma and appearance are more reliable tests for the once- a-year pineapple purchaser. A ripe pineapple has a delightfully pronounced fragrance. The eyes of fresh, ripe pineapple are flat and glossy with a tendency 112 for honoring bridesmaids luncheon Miss Janet Hildbold, grocery if it's who will become the bride of Richard P.

(#5 of a series.) The interstate system of super-highways (4-lane freeways) initiated and begun during my administration, is now virtually complete. Only a small section West of Little Rock, including a fourth bridge ever the Arkansas River, is incomplete. I Now additions will be made to this' super-highway system, and the people want a', voice in the selection of the routes to be added. To fail to extend the system to those areas not npw served would be discriminatory. Additions to this system should include the following routes. From Missouri Southward through North Central Arkansas, connecting with the present system near Little Rock and through South Central Arkansas into Louisiana. The Western route from SW Missouri through Bent on and Washington Counties, where they are literally strangling on traffic, connecting with the interstate system at Ft. Smith, thence South to the interstate near Texarkana. Extension of a four-lane highway from Little Rock Jro Pine Bluff, thence SE into Louisiana with a leg across the Greenville bridge te connect with the interstate in Mississippi. The Little Rock to Pine Bluff section should have priority for completion in Arkansas. ' Extension of the 4-lan'e highway from Little Rock NE to Searcy, Newport, Walnut Ridge, Pocahontas and Corning to connect with the interstate in Missouri. An East-West 4-lane highway in South Arkansas generally along the route of Highway 82. The connections of this route are already being 4-laned in Texas and Mississippi. Thus, this East-West route will become a bottle-neck in Arkansas if it is not 4-laned in the state. An East-West route in North Arkansas from the Washington-Benton County area via Harrison to connect with the interstate in Eastern Arkansas. Too ambitious? Not at all, in view of the fact that bridges and portions of the already completed interstate system can be used for the new routes as at Ft. Smith and Little Rock. Other highways and roads must be upgraded, and new hard-surfaced roads. must be built in rural areas. We must continue to build hard-surfaced country roads until every town and settlement, and every school district in Arkansas, are served by a system of hard-surfaced roads. Construction can now go forward by two agencies of government. The State Highway Department must continue its program of construction of hard-surfaced country roads. The counties can now begin an accelerated program of hard-surfacing county roads, under the old federal aid program, and the new state aid program. I pledge to continue these road and highway programs, and improve and accelerate them whenever possible." ·· r r Faubus Ror Us. For Governor. For All. H« will do something about the state we're in.
