In fresh fruit and vegetable counters, the major change is greater variety of soft f r u i t s and some reduction in melon ~riccs.

After they are ripe, the yshould be refrigerated and used within a few days. POTATO PROBLEMS A major concern of m a n y Arkansas residents is presently in home gardens rather t h a n produce counters. Because of the high cost of potatoes during the past two years, more people t h a n usual have planted potatoes. These who dug potatoes before the heavy rains can keep goorl quality with usual storage methods for 2 to 3 months. Some gardeners are finding t h a t part of their potatoes have decayed in the ground, and they are eager to save at least a part of (heir crop. In normal weather conditions, new-crop potatoes should be to avoid excessive heal. It's a good idea to store them, if possible, in a moist, area at (if) degrees to 75 decrees for a week or two to allow healing of skinned and cracked areas. After h e a l i n g takes place, decay of matured potatoes is not likely to be 1 a problem so long us temperature can be held below 75 degrees, hut losses increase at 80 degrees or above, If decay cannot be prevented, the' second best solution is canning or freezing. Whether they're prepared by home or commercial methods, canned or frozen potatoes often do not have the same flavor and texlure as fresh potatoes. Howev er, the p rocluc t s z re acceptable lo some people at all times. To others, canned or frozen polatoes are preferable to loss of the fresh product. Before giving a lot of time and effort to home preservation, however, it's a good i d e a to put up small batches and serve meal i^em soon. If your family likes VC S C " Ihe product, Ihere should still ! be time to can or freeze new potatoes before they decay. HOME CANNING Home economists at the United States Department of Agriculture recommend canning potatoes cubed or whole. To can cubed potatoes, wash, peel, and cut into Vfc-mcli cubs. To prevent discoloration, dip cubes into a solution of 1 teaspoon of salt to 1 quart of w a t e r. Drain. Drop potatoes into oiling water, b oil for2mintb ue boiling water, boil for 2 minutes and drain. Pack hot potatoes to %-inch of tops of canning jars. Arid ] / 2 teaspoon salt to pints; 1 teaspoon to quarts. Close with self-sealing lids. Pro cess in a pressure canncr at 10 pounds pressure 33 minutes for pints or 40 minutes for quarts. To can whole potatoes, wash 3nd peel potatoes that, are 1 to 2V 2 inches in diameter. Cook in boiling water for 10 minutes n ack, seal, and process ac cording to instruction for cubec )otatoes.

(AP) -Southern Presbyterians are moving toward a revamped declaration of belief that would a f f i r m the continuing validity of Judaism. It may be the first time a Christian denomination ever has officially taken such a stand. In a first step toward authorizing the creed, the governing assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. (Southern), voted Thursday to relay the declaration to local presbyteries for their reactions. The proposed statement will the brought back before the assembly next year for legislative decision-making. At present, the church's basic doctrinal summation is the cen- .uries-old Westminster Confession of 1617. The a f f i r m a t i o n of Judaism would be added to it.
