Well, save these tags from 'ear to year and in four to ive years your little girl can lave Â· an unusual bracelet. Just get a jeweler to hook he tags together and add a simple clasp. My father had saved dog tags Tom the early nineteen hundreds and they made a special piece of jewelry that I treasure more than pearls. And what a memento to have :o wear when your dear doggie lias gone to slumberland! Martha Lostrom Martha, I'll have to admit [ think it's great.

My dad solved the problem this way: He took the swimming poo and put it in our empty san nox. (It is the kind with woode seats on the sides.) Our poo just happened to fit the san box perfectly and with the poo in the box, we had seats o the side.

Though prices never r'op enough to suit buyers, beef rices are lower than they were ast spring. Actually, beef pri es have had two high points i the past 12 months: August irough mid-September of 1972 nd February through March ol his year. Retail b e e f prices re lower now than they were the August-September price jeriod of last year and lower lan they were in March of iian they were in March of this ear. This situation is a rever al of both a recent trend and n established one. For any hing to cost less now than i did a year ago is unusual. Fo beef. Other families still prefer ban in the previous spring is lardly believable. BUY FOR FREEZER? Should I buy beef for my 'reezer Â· is a question seldom isked in summer, since October o April is normally the low- jrice period of the year. Whe- iher beef price will drop further his fall is anybody's guess, and ots of people are making a try at it. Those who have already decided to buy beef for their freezers within the next few weeks are faced with re-evaluation of their quantity bee! buying method. SIDE OR CUTS Buying cuts, when price snt available quality are accept able, is the method many fa mi lies prefer for buying freeze! beef. Other families still pr'ef: to buy beef by the side or quar ter, but families sometime think that they save more than they do. Buying beef by the side or price, quarter is an advantage to ~ iome families because its wide ange of cuts provides a challenge to the cook and ariety to the menu. A side of eef provides constant quality so long as it lasts, which is good when the quality is superior. Possibly, the major reason for buying a side or quarter of beef is "serving steaks that cost less than a dollar per pound." This really isn't true, but it's one way to serve steak part of the time without facing its true retail Legion Auxiliary Holds Meeting Mrs. Esste Padgett, presi- !ent, conducted the American Legion Auxiliary meeting t H e veek, which opened with prayer y Mrs. Jessie Patterson. Colors were advanced by Mrs. Nora Bee Lingelbach and Mrs. Bill Carroll and the pledge of allegiance and preamble vere repeated in unison. Mrs. Mabel Maddox announced that game night will be Aug. 20. :offee hour on Aug. 22, and birthday parties, all at the VA Hospital, w e r e to be held Wednesday, T h u r s d a y a n d Friday or this week. 'Mrs. Lingelbach reported on the state convention recently held where she was elected delegate to the national convention. It w a s announced that the first district meeting will be held Sept. 1 at Huntsville and the tourade will take place Oct. 24. 25 and 26. Buying, cuts .is an easy way ;o buy and store meats in the freezer. A few cuts bought on a weekly shopping trip can be safely wrapped and frozen in the home freezer. Some homemakers simply do not use all cuts from a side of beef, making cuts a better choice for them. Even more,important, a side could be a total loss for anyone who could not arrange to have the large quantity of m e a l qui9k-frozen before placing it into'a home freezer. When you buy a side or quarter of beef, you get the same proportion of cuts your retailer gets with variations from one carcass to another. The avenge yield for each 100 pounds o side or carcass is 27 pounds of bone and fat waste. 2' pounds of hamburger and stew meat, and 49 pounds of steak and roasts. From each 10f pounds of hindquarter, thi average yield is 31 pounds o bone and fat waste', 28. pound of broiling steaks. 27 pounds'o r u m p roast and r o u n d , steak and 14 pounds of lean trim. A average yield from each 1C pounds of forequarter is 2 pounds of waste, 35 pounds o hamburger and stew meat, i pounds of chuck, and 12 pound of rib roast. Present retail prices lor cu: n one group of Little Roc stores equal 93 cents per poun for a side of carcass. (Th figure is 4 cents below the sam one used in this column la March and 2 cents below th one of March, 1373.) Presei retail-cut prices equal $1.07 pi pound for hindquarter and cents for forequarter. The big difference in prese beef prices and those of la March results from sumin demand for steaks. Prese tail-cut prices for rs (which contain the broiling: eaks) are 9 cents above the- arch estimate. Present pricÂ«' T pound of retail cuts from' forequarter (rib or chuck : i its) is 14 cents per pound: ilow the average for these; its in March. The summer' crease in steak prices, which;; ways happens, is one reason;'- eople think retail beef priceÂ» : ave not dropped. A T I O N FOR k R E P A R / FREEZING Beef cuts, purchased a ' t a time from the retail cou'n- r. may be labeled, sealed in plastic bag, and frozen in an rdinary home freezer. Quar4 ers or sides must be cut, pack- ged. labeled, and quick-frozen efore the large amount of neat is placed in the home reezer. The cost .of cutting? ackaging, and quick-freezing aries. This cost may be in- luded in the advertised price. f beef sides and quarters or nay be added after meat is' lurchaseci. '*" ; -Â·'Â·Â· Freezer locker plants 'and. grocers have standard cutting nethods. They will vary these methods at the request of quan- ity purchasers, making steaks he thickness and roasts the' izc and shape that each purchaser desires. Many freezer ocker plants convert ground beef into patties at no extra charge. If this is not done at he locker plant, it's worth the time it takes to do this yourself. 1 RENTALS iSAUES FÂ«yÂ«ttevlllÂ« Dra f E.
