The University of Arkansa Board of Trustees cited Mrs Harris with an unusual appre ciation resolution on May 17 fo her dedicated service an loyalty to the institution. OVERWHELMED 'I was overwhelmed! I:kee wondering, 'Why me? Wn would they do this tor me? she said. The citation presenle by Dr. Oxford answers he question. It reads, in part: "WHEREAS, Mrs. Harris ha has been responsible for the variety of ground beef types available in most meat coun- ers. On any day of any week. t isn't unusual to find as many as' five different types of ground eef in the. meat counter of a arge supermarket. In addition, most frozen f o o d counters provide a selection of fresh or cooked patties made of ground beef or ground-beef mixtures.

Retailers who sell (round beef with a higher percentage of fat than standards permit are subject to heavy penalties. Ground beef may contain only frosh or frozen beef from any age animal. Pork or ground animal organs must not be mixed with meat that is labeled hamburger or ground beef. No cereal may be added .unless the product is given a different ame. To meet the demand for lean ground beef at a lower price than must be charged for ground round steak or ground chuck, some stores prepare a mixed with meat from older beef a n i m a l s t h a t are not tender enough for roasts and steaks.

This product may be labeled lean ground beef and is actually an upgraded version of hamburger. There is no basis on which consumers can judge fat con tent except by noting the cooked yield of a pound of ground lean (or chuck, sirloin or round) by comparison to I pound of regular ground beer or hamburger. A pound of fresh hamburger should yield 11 to 12 ounces o patties when cooked to the medium done stage. If pattie: are cooked to the well-dom stage, yield is lower.
