Increased Supply Makes Potatoes A Good Buy By MESCAL JOHNSTON Lower potato prices make big news in some food ads this week, a result of increased supplies. While a return to 1972 fresh potato prices should not be expected this summer, substantial price reductions are possible by October, when more will be known about fall harvest. White the summer potato crop is bigger than last year's short crop, it's not much larger than that of a normal year; and there's a big demand for processing potatoes to replenish low-storage holdings.

Births Easy Does It For Carefree Summer Here's guide to By VIVIAN BROWN house watcher's carefree summer with an easy-does-it routine that aims to keep chores from inching up on you. Good economy too. For example, when it looks like rain, pull in the chaise and chair cushions, and perhaps they'll last another season. They'll be dry, too, if you want to sit on them after a storm. Keep your swimming pool clean and give its vital parts a checkup You don't want it to black out for your big shindig. Fixing a small crack or tear might save a large gash in the checkbook. Repair wooden outdoor furniture as you go along and save yourself a late-season junk heap. Bolt pieces ; that may tend to separate as chairs j3.n.d chaises are tossed about. U|e wood filler if holes become enlarged. Keep your lawn mower out of the rain and clean it each time for unclogged performance, new battery can cost $35.) (A Small tears in awnings should be patched quickly with tape before you have a big rip that requires an expensive repair patch or a new awning. Flowers are your outdoor decorations. A straggly garden is worse than no garden at al. If you are lazy, keep the garden small and cut some flowers occasionally for the house. Vegetable seeds will provide food only if you provide care They'll require watering, weed ing and hovering. Plant only what you can use fresh, can ned, pickled or frozen. Planting more than you can handle may result in a poor crop all around. Make sure you.'ll be ahout when the crop comes in. Otherwise plant a post-vacation garden. CLEAN GRILL : Clean the barbecue grill after every use. In addition to ani- THE LIGHT mals licking it, there is the controversial charcoal cooking issue. Men have a theory that all the goo burns off. but you don t want to start off with globs of Â·grease stuck to it. If it is in bad shape, soak it in ammonia, soap and water for several lours, then rub a wire brush over it. Burn it for a while before putting anything on it. Keep tr'acfi of garden tools. A hoe or rake hidden in the tall grass can cause accidents when one end is stepped on. And there is the economy factor -tools lett for long periods can rust. They can also ruin lawn mowers that are pushed upon them. The family picnic area is a favorite place to find pieces of broken glass, can tops, bottle caps and the like that can cause injury. Any bottle lying in^grass should be picked up carefully. It could be broken underneath, causing a bad hand cut that might need emergency room treatment at the local hospital. Ladders kept handily in the lackyard ban be. helpful to a jrowler who discovers -you are iway for the day. It is j worth he effort to put a ladder where it isn't too convenient for the unwelcome visitor. REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER Mr. and Mrs. John Whitele of Westville, a daughter, Ju! 29.

Fall harvest from large plant- jgs of peas and beans should ring lower prices for dry cans and peas. In the mean- me, it's a good idea to buy ry beans and peas only seded, as prices should d Â·om now until fall. MELONS IN SEASON July is the peak 'month for watermelons, but price usually emains low into September. his year's supply is smaller lan usual, but prices have een about the same as they vere last year. Apparently, melon supply is sufficient for emand. After all, the fresh- market demand has no compe- ition from processors. Though Â·nelons may be frozen; for spe- ialty uses, the product is , not ikely to be in great demand; While its flavor and texture are the only recommendations vatermelon needs, .it's worth its cost for vitamins A and C. A wo-pound piece of watermelon provides most of the vitamin needed in a day by an adult and more than half his daily need for vitamin A. The same two-pound serving of melon provides about 120 calories, a ittle more than a potato. The crisp sweetness of cool watermelon has always made it an ideal no-cook dessert. Now, with Ihe need to conserve energy by keeping summer cooking at a minimum, the cut-and-eat .advantage of melon is even more valued. By the pound, watermelon costs least from displays of whole unchilled melons. For one or two people, however, cut melons may be a better choice, even at a higher cost.
