PARKLAND POST NO. 228 AMERICAN LEGION Meetings every second and fourth l'riday at 8:00 p.m. in the Sunshine Hall Now is the time for all good mci1 to come to the aid of the Post. The Jll'W year brings with it the outlook of 12. months filled with things to do. And from the looks of things it will be 12 full months. Got to start thinking of Boys' State and who will represent Parkland this year. This worthy endeavor must certainly receive all of the attention it drser\'es. This takes a little planning on our part. The baseball team should also receive a sizeable portion of our attention, even now; lots of prdiminaTy work to do. The whole Fourth District watched our tca111 last year and expect great things from us this year. There's a job for everyone in the program for 194-9. Just a couple were listed above-we can always welcome a job that will enrich the treasury!

Even h;, Un._ u·idef space of time you may not see the dim figure in the road ahead of you until it is too late. It's the early hours of darkness, especially in the Fall and Winter when traffic is still heavy, that produce the heaviest fatalities in driver-pedestrian accidents.

A-safe driver reduces his average speed at night. He looks away from glaring lights, watching the edge of the road on .his side. He never "overdrives" his lights and can stop at any time within his headlight range. He is especially careful at intersection~ and is on 'the watch for unlighted veh;cles, and motorists changing tires at the side of the road.

Recipe of the Week ~I How's about lining up some new treats for after-turkey relief!' Something entirely different but wonderfully good, of course. For example, have you ever had Anchovy Baked Fish? Gourmets enjoy it at the finest restaurants-and you can, too, right at your own dinner table. There's no tricky preparation involved -it's downright simpk to make. Herc's the recipe-and bet you'll have to rqwat it often once you've served it.

Pedestrians, for your own safety, walk to the left facing trafflc, carry something white. Be extra cautious at night. Never forg~t, the life you save may be your own.

ANCHOVY BAKED FISH !-lb. fish (dressed) garinc, melted tablespoon anchovy paste % cup bread crumbs 2 lablespoons butter or marSprcad fish lightly with anchovy paste. Combine melted butter and cru1nbs. Roll fish in buttered bread crumbs and place in greased baking dish. Bake in hot oven (+o0° F.) 15 to 20 minutes.
