FAYETTEVIUE, ARKANSAS, SUNDAY, JUIY 2T, 1974 To Life In Arkansas ·si A River Boat Adds A New Dimension s Time To Celebrate The Garden Right about now those Northwest Arkarisans who went · to the trouble to plant a garden last. spring are getting a definitive 'answer as to how the venture .panned out. A persistent dry.s'pell this early summer has tended to stall the, less well-prepared patches. But for the most part one can now make an accurate estimate of one's gardening operations for the -summer, of. -74.' Even 'those who didnt have time, space or gumption for the task can 1 presently, take advantage of the growing season by selecting from the wealth of fresh vegetables at markets in the area. Tomatoes are at · a peak. And if you haven't tried the "Traveler," a variety developed at the University here, you ought .to do so. They are variously available, with one dependable source -located near Lancaster's Plants, on Old Wire Road, north. As was 'the" case last year,' freezers are in short supply in the area, -and -not-all- models are available. There is considerable demand being, reported too, for canning jars, lids, etc. A recent business report foresees a shortage of tin cans for commercial processing this year and next, and if that is true, the home canner will find her (his?) efforts twice valuable; This winter and next spring. For those interestd in good buys -- corn, cabbage, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, peppers and green beans are a l l well in season and plentiful. Melons are in. now, too. BY FAUNE CONNER If -it's always been your yen o lake a leis.urely cruise on big boat but you haven't had he time, or Ihe money, for uch a luxury Irip, dream no nore! In Arkansas you can do ust that on the Arkansas Explorer. The Arkansas. Explorer is a jnique overnight passenger ship hat recently began plowing the waters of the Arkansas River ,wice weekly from the Greater Jttle Rock area to Lake Dardanelle and back. For a f a r e hat includes passage, berth, and meals, passengers can take a three day, 200 mile round trif and enjoy some of the mo si )eau,tiful scenery in Arkansas -scenery that can't be seen from the road. The Explorer, with flags wav irfg, sails from her home dock in North Little Rock Tuesday at 2 p.m. and returns at 2 p.m. on Thursday. She follows the same departure time on Friday. and arrival time on Sunday. rVhile she is in her home dock Sunday nighl, Monday, Monday night and Thursday night, she is used for group charters such as dinner cruises, sales meetings, seminars and conventions. Owners of the Explorer are Jack Trotter of Little Rock and Capt. Gary D. Davis' of Alligator, Miss., who purchased the boat May. 1973, in Warren; R.I. If two men ever loved boats and the river, these two do. Trotter, 51, a native of Pine Bluff, has been studying Hhe- rivers of the state all his life He was formerly in the advertising business, but after a heart attack forced him to sel his agency, he went into rivei related businesses instead- In 1970, he bought. a paddle vheel charier and excursion loat, the Border Star, which now operates in Knoxville, Tcnn. at the headwaters of the Tennessee River. In 1972, he opened the unusual River Museum at 111 East Third Street ti downtown Little Rock. And, when he finally met Captain Davis aboard the steamboat Delia Queen, Trotter met his match. Davis, 49, hails originally from Greenville, Miss, and has had an exciting career on the r i v e r. He went lo w o r k for the U.S. Corps of Engineers in 1947 on a towboat, learned how lo pilot and graduated up to larger ves sels. In his trme off, he took additional piloling Irips, such as the Delta Queen, and resigned his long tenure with the Corps last year when he and Troltei formed (.heir partnership.

Eggplants, for instance, are one of the easiest and most .delectable of fresh, locally!' grown" vegetable, and one o f : the'vmOs't 'versatile for the enterprising-chef. Eggplants take lo casseroles, pasta dishes, sauleing, and even pickling and as cold appetizer dishes. The acorn squash is another . delight, though less flexible in its usage. Demand is so low in these parts, however that supply is usually short and. the price high. Sadly, eggplants also have a way of being wilted when you want .one, having languished loo long at the mart. I have a couple of recipes for eggplant and squash t h a t Hie adventurous might try. The eggplant dish is passed along by Mrs. James .Gallman, who combines trj^vbest parts of a couple of recipe.s for-her: EGGPLANT .CASSEROLE LINDA Select fresh, not'too large ve- a n d getables. · · ' . . · , Slice and soak.in salted .water 30 min.

The Old Post'Office building in Fayetteville can .be preserved if the present Urban Renewal plan is changed to permit Ihe disposition of the property at a fair market value as determined by the Fayetle- ville Housing Authority based on independent appraisals. This is the position of the Little Rock area office ot Housing and Urban Develop- -merit (HUD) as presented in a position paper forwarded this week to the Cily Manager Don Grimes of Fayetleyille. The paper reminds the city that' the Fayetteville program needs to progress and slates hat future redevelopment must icccssarily wait for resolution of this, question, which hopefully wiirc'ome aVmeeling scheduled "or 7 p.m. Monday at Central Fire Station.

"The Fayetteville Housing Authority bought the Old Post Office property because it was slated for acquisition as part of Ihe plan from Ihe slart and that plan also staled the building would be demolished a n d a pedestrian mall developed," Cockrill wrote. ' ' T h e Housing Authority acquired the Old Post Office property from the Downtown Fayetteville Unlimited at a cost of $235,400 in June 1972. The value of the property was determined by two independent appraisals selected by Ihe Fayetteville Housing Authority. DEMOLITION APPROVED "The dapoled and approved olan calls for the demolition of :hc Old Post Office building and redevelopment of the ground .as an open space pedestrian mall and plaza. This redevelopment will be deeded to the city for maintenance and operation." The HUD comparable standards adoptei by HUD. CASH REQUIRED - "Regardless of the possibl historic or architectural signif cance that might be attache to the Old Post Office building,! it .can only ,be disposed of at fair market, value," the paper said.' · , · - , - . -- - ; · The HUD ^office -noted- that plan changes of a major nature, such as this, are complicated by the need for such changes to conform to the overall Urban Renewal plan, which is based on local judgment combined w i t h professional planning expertise. A major plan change at;this t i m e is complicated, by redevelopment that has already taken place based on the existing plan. ! . The .statement also. noted there is some degree .of flexibility and judgment permitted to the Little Rock area office. ".Wo intend to exercise" this in order to adjust our thinkini to the v Ihinkmg. of the : loca c i t i 7 e n r y of Fayetteville,'.' Cockrill said. "We have stated in the past, and again restate, lhat our ' office consider any change gladlj in .the existing .Urban. Renewal. Plan that .is adopted by the Fayette yille Housing Authority am approved by the City Board b Directors. The chances of our .con currence in such a proposal art good if there are no aclditipna funds required, no major', ex 'pansion of the project'and the changes proposed are withiri the overall intent of Ihe, program As of this date, ho amcndmen to Ihe present plan -has- beei submitted to our office."

The major market indicators emerged from a week of erratic and listless trading with generally narrow gains. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials inched up .71 to 787.94; Standard Poor's 500- slock index rose .39 lo 83.54, and the broadly based New York Stock Exchange composite was up .38 to 43.74.

Allen said the operation is getlin goff lo a rather slow start because of the lack of storage space for the abandoned cars, the counly currently is using one 10 acre site near Lincoln, but more sites are needed in other parts of the county before the program can be fully utilized, Allen said. The program will remain basically in the western part' of the counly until other sites cSn be localed. Those wilh tracts of land of 10 acres or more who would like lo temporarily donate the land to the county for use as a collection site are urged to conlacl Allen at 443-4164.

Allen poinlcd out that the ounty is not going into the salvage business. It will not strip he cars lo sell parts but only laul them to the site and allow a private contractor to crush he bodies and haul them to 'ulsa for shredding. : The crew will pick .up. cars at any locution in the county, except within the city limits of Fayetleville or Springdale. VEHICLES SOLD Allen said the county government hopes to receive belwcen 57 and $10 per car from Ihe :ontraclor, Clifton- Gabbard, in order to recover the cost of the operation. Gabbard will thei .ake Ihe cars to Tulsa and sel :hem. The program has been in the planning stages for about six months Allen said. Gabbard appeared, before the P l a n n i n g Board in March to describe the method by which the county could get rid of the cars littering the landscape. Gabbard .assured the hoard that he, would not need, to burn the "c'tfrs, 'as'- must in Ihe business do. In Ihis way, he pointed out, there would be no violation of counly or state clean air codes. Gabbard told the board that o Tulsa. GRANT RECEIVED Recently, Ihe Soil Conserva .ion Service gave the county a ;rant of £1,000 to slart Ihe pro ,*ram. It is believed, Allen sate .hat once Ihe program is full' underway, it will pay for itself. When new sites are found, h said, the county will add an other crew to help handle Ih load.
