Jlortfjtoest SECTION D FAYETTEVIUE, ARKANSAS, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1974 It's THAT Time Agin, In. Indian summer has been With us through mid-jpctflber and, as usual, it is one'rof'the nicest times of the year. The Folk Festival occurred at Eureka Springs over-Ibis weekend, and the annual War Eagle Arts and Crafts show was an event of the previous weekend. Both always attract throngs, regardless of weather;.-but this year things could ·'hardly ·Hav'er · been nicer. . - . ; I don't know .whether it was generally anno'nhce'd'at'the War Eagle Fair, but* Lester 'and Blanche Elliott, around whose War Eagle Farms the event has always revolved, have their home and 250-acre ranch up'for sale. The price tag, I understand is $390,000, which may seem high, but , ; hpw many century and a'h'alf old'country mansions are there hard by a sparkling Ozark stream and a rustic old iron bridge?: , One must-' wonder what'll happen if a buyer is found who hates a r t s and crafts. The chances trjat, someone will buy the ranch.'l'a" good- bit- of whose value is wrapped up in its antique charm, and not appreciate the roots from which the arts and crafts, fair has sprung however, are remote. THIS IS NOT only the arts and crafts season here in the Ozarks, I am reminded by my turnip-pickin' friend Herb Lewis, but also fall turnip eatin* time. There is a particular quality of farm-fresh fall-produce' vortie fall recipe for newcomers can quite match.- Fall apples are. sumptious; pork chops never more toothsome, and of course, there are those late- planted fall turnips. Such being the case, I am prompted to re-print an old favorite fall recipe for newcomers, to the Ozarks and oldtimers, who may have 'gotten out of the habit of settin' down to a Halloween Holds Hint Of Danger Thursday night will be the night'-many-children in Fayette ville have been looking forward to for weeks -- a night of fun, games and t r i c k s or treat, unhappily, some will be injured. Each year several children are injured during Halloween trick or treat rounds when they dart into streets from between parked cars, trip over flowinj costumes or get burned by candle-lighted jack-o-lanterns. In order for every child to have a fun-filled, enjoyable outing Halloween, city police rave issued some instructions :o help keep the kiddies safe. First of all, s a i d Assistant Chief Glen Riggins, talk over plans with your children, Be certain he understands rules and limitations for his activities and be sure he\is dressec safely. Safety in dress Include: carrying a flashlight or lantern to help'make .the child visible a n d - l e t him see Where'he is going. Reflective patches o paint on costumes increase: visibility after dark. MAKEUP SAFER -Makeup, Riggins' said, i much safer than a mask which may obscure vision, especially on small ' "" ~ collecting __ small enough - so they won't slock the child's vision or cause lim to trip. Shoes are important; Regularly worn shoes arc preferable:.... to high heels or "costume" shoes. .. Parents, Riggins said, should inow what route older children will be following, what companions the jChild. .will have .and what type'. Qf "supervision is available. Children in 'each group should ideally be of the same age group and small clusters of .three or four children arc safest.' Smaller children should be accompanied by an adult or responsible older child. Children should be encouraged to call only at the homes of friends and neighbors and should never enter any house. - . .' LEAVE LIGHTS ON children.

Walk softly and put your mind and ears to the job. 11 ' This is the approach fifth graders at Bates School were given Thursday before leaving the .new Nature Study Center at Lake Fayetteville. Their job was to explore the 3 0 0 acres woodland and of lakeshore, fields at the upper end of the lake. After the field study the students, all members of Mrs. Ray i Round About Town! table loaded with Mountain cookin'. Southern I AM INDEBTED to Mrs. Martha L. Collins of Winslow for the following classic turnip recipe. To quote from Mrs. Collins. "When we came to make our home in the Boston Mountains of the Ozarks, some 17 years ago, we w e r e strongly attracted to the; wonderful personality · of-'-.the"y late . Isabel France, the-writer. Shortly-after we went to call on her in her home in Winfrey Valley. She showed us about their place including the amazing and beautiful Shepard Spring which bubbled up in their side yard. This spring,-'as well :as. their home is now inundated by "the waters of Lake Shepard Spring: When we were ready to depart, she presented us with some turnips from her garden with this Tecipe for preparing the " 'Pare and slice the turnips in a cooking kettle,-'Coyer with a smuch water as you wish to have with with salt, about a tablespoon of sugar, and the leftover drlpr pings from your breakfast bacon. Add a small.piece of hot pepper. Boil onlil, the turnips are tender and ready to eat. Remove the pepper. If your family begins to tire of them this way, then slice them the opposite direction for awhile." "When the fall turnip season comes around each year," writes Mrs. Collins, "we fix turnips 'Hill' style and eat them with wonderful relish and enjoyment for they always remind us of the wonderful -- Isabel France." -Those residents wishing to participate.. i n . providing treats for small tricksters should leave their porch light burning, Riggins said.'This tells the child his visit will probably be welcome and he can see where he is going and avoid pitfalls. Vandalism often mars Halloween as children, especially older ones, are prone to get carried away on that night, Riggins said. In order to help combat vandalism the Jayce'e Safety Patrol and the Fayetteville Auxiliary Police force ..will oin r e g u l a r policemen in jatroling the city. Riggins said the Jaycees and auxiliary police will patrol residential and business areas watching for acts of vandalism or potential vandalism. "We want the children to have fun", Riggins said, "but we want them to come home safely." . B y DORRIS HENDRICKSON - , TIMES Staff Writer On Nov. 5 Fayetteville residents, like those across the nation, will go to the polls to select those people who w i l l have a large say in the quality of our lites for at least the next two years. The federal, state and county office holders are important to each individual, but perhaps those office holders with whom local people will most frequently come into contact are the seven persons'-who will next January, comprise the Fayetteville Board of Directors. They will, in large, decide the direction Fayetteville will lake. There has been complaints in DeOrdio Name*' the years since gressed to tlie the city city pro- manager form of government that some segments of -the city have a larger portion of representation on the board than do some other segments. For that reason, among others, a new system has been devised which calls for four qf the directors to represent specific wards in which they live and for the other three to run at-large. IN THIS WAY, even if the three at-large candidates should happen to live in the same ward, only four of-the directors could be from the same area. Under the old system, in which all candidates ran at large, al' even directors could have lived n the same block, For those who are concerned bout equal representation for 'ayelteville citizens, now is the !me to make the final decision n whicli seven of the 20 candi- atcs for the Board of Direc- ors will get your vote. There are candidates with many backgrounds and pro- essions. They range in age rom barely 30 to the retirement years. There are those vbo have hired professionals to conduct their campaigns, those vho have 'gone door-lo-door seeking support, and those who have done little in'the way of campaigning. A SURVEY of the professior if the 20 candidates shows there are four potential hoard .mem hers affiliated with the University of Arkansas (John Todd 'aul Noland, -Miller Ford and Phillip Taylor), five are em ployed in business, industry and public services (Ernest" Lancas er, Mrs. Marion Orton, Pa 1 Watkins, 'Raymond Mitchell an- "P o t Likker" to sop up your cornbread.

DeOrdio, director of the Counseling Center at the University of,Arkansas, will serve as a member of the faculty for a series of seminars the American Association for Higher Education is conducting this year on'faculty evaluation a.nd development.

Morrow, son of Mr and Mrs. Ivan E. Morrow o' Route 4, Fayetteville, a recen doctoral graduate of the Uni versily of Tennessee, Knoxville has been appointed livestock specialist for the University o Missouri's five-county Ozark foothills Extension area. He is a graduate of Siloam Springs public schools, Arkan sas Polytechnic College and thi University of Arkansas. Mrs. lave Christine Bailey); three privately-owned busi nesses (Frank Sharp-food, Mor ·is Collier Jr., - pharmacy an l a c k Moncrief-photography) hrce who are retired (Mayo: Russell .Purdy and Mr. and Airs. T. C. Carlson) and fiv vho are in one way or anolhei connected with real estate anc development (Jim-Lindsey-, A Hughes, Marion Johnson, Gu Ostmeyer and Loris Stanton). The latter category provide the most likelihood for person with similar interests to contro the board. Should all five men connectC' with real estate and jdevelop ment be named to the boar at one time, it might be'difficul for them -- despite their un questioned good intentions -- t conduct the city's business -especially; in the planning zoning and subdivision regu latiori areas -- without som consideration of their ow needs. The city has attempted t draft regulations and orclii ances which permit its order] growth and expansion. That is as it should be. Tha is the way it should remain.
