Such year round staples as potatoes, car rots, onions, and celery are moving back toward their nor mal prices. Prices and quality lave changed little since sum mer for lomatoes, peaches cantaloupes, and watermelons New-crop apples and sweet po atoes are available at early ieason prices.

From local commercial field and home gardens, availabl all -vegetables include summer nd winter squashes, field peas, omatoes, green peppers, egg- lants, corn, and okra. CANNED FOOD PRICES It ever there was a time that tome preservation of available /cgetables could help on gro- ,ery bills, that time is surely low. Most canned fruits and vegetables are almost certain to cost more than they did last 'ear. In this case, prices of .'resh vegetables are likely to e pushed upward by processed "ood, even if the fresh product s fairly plentiful. Not all fami- ies can produce or process many of their vegetables, bul ;hose who can invest any heir own time in any part o! ;heir food supply stand to make substantial savings by so doing For homemakers who own home freezers or pressure can ners, preservation of home grown okra is a sure way to save money on winter meals Even those who do not have home-grown okra may be able to buy il at prices low enough to justify home preservation. VALUE OF OKRA Fresh okra provides four half cup servings of boiled okra t a pound, though the yield i lower for fried okra. Fresh okra competes price-wise with frozei okra when the price per poun is at or below 53 cents. A bushe of fresh okra (30 pounds) shouli yield about 30 pints of frozei Births ·IIIIIIHIIIIIM^ elected are: S e n t - 6 ' ArkttttsaH Sli now and Mrs. Nail will als erve another year as directors i !

(AP) -Mayor Jack Trigg of Texarkana said that in view of a ruling in Little Rock this week he would ask the city Board of Directors to reconsider the residency requirement for city em- ployes. City employes now are required to live within five miles of city hall /and that is one of the things that led to picketing of city hall by firemen. Judge Warren Wood of Pulaski County Circuit Court null- filed a rule adopted by the Little Rock Civil Service Commission which said any policeman or fireman with the rank of captain or higher had to be a resident of the city. Trigg said City Manager Ron Copeland of Texarkana believed that the city's residency requirement was too restrictive. The firemen, who also want recognition of their union and more money, have asked for permission to live as far as 15 miles from city hall. The picketing began two weeks ago.

CHOOSING OKRA High-quality okra is easier to cognize than to find. Because ra stays fresh for only a few ays after culling, it often pass- its peak of quality before even reaches the produce iunter. The natural color of esh okra ranges from pale to ark green. However, the dark reen of fresh okra is easy to islinguish from the darkened bs of wilted pods. The surface ! tender pods may be smooth : groved. Pod length may vary om one to twelve inches, de- ending on variety; but, mosl arieties of okra are tough by he lime pods are si xlo eight nches long. Okra that is purchased shoulc e refrigerated and used soon fter purchase. Okra that i rcshly picked from the garden eeps original quality in the re rigerator, sealed in plastic ags, for three to four days. FREEZING OKRA When done properly, homi reezing of okra is relative!) oolproof. When done improper y, freezing okra is messy rustrating, and disappointing 'o make quick work of freezin; high-quality product, wasl kra pods in clear water. Sepa ate small and large pods am handle the eizes separttel; _ve stem ends on okraaloni with at least V4 inch of stem. Bring [our to six quarts p water to a rolling boil and ft i sink or large dishpan wit :old water. Place about a quar of okra in a basket or cheese jloth bag and lower into rapidl boiling water. As soon as wate returns to a boil, start timing minu.tes; boil, large pods fou minutes. As soon as timing i completed, lift the containe rom the boiling water an dump heated okra into cold wa er. Place a second quart of okr into the basket and lower into boiling water, thus startin .he process over again.

Small els may he packaged in meal- f.eii hatches in moisture-vapor sislant packages for later use boiled okra. Larger pods ay be sliced lor frying. To make quick work of slicing 'aincd okra before il is frozen, ut off stem ends of large pods ilh 'a sharp knife. Stack eight ten pods on a cutting board ith all stem ends in the same rcclion. Make clean slashes ·osswise through the slack of ods. For frying, sliced okra may e coaled with seasoned flour · meal before it is frozen or ust before it is cooked. Those who prefer to add the coating icfore the okra is frozen might borrow an idea from commercial freezers. Commercially 'ro/cn cut okra is quick frozen in individual pieces before it is coated for frying. With home- frce/ing equipment, it isn't possible to freeze large amounts of okra in individual pieces, but small amounts can be spread out on wax paper-lined cookie sheet and frozen in individual pieces. Once the pieces of okra are frozen individually they can be dropped without coating. If individually frozen pieces are handled quickly and returned to the freezer immediately, they separate easily for frying-.
