So far as prices are concerned, the "Good old days" weren't nearly so good as many believe. Take a commodity which practically every American family buys and consumes every day-meat. Like everything else, it costs more than it did 10 or 20 or some other given number of years ago.

And last year, believe it or not, the percentage of disposable income so spent was the smallest in modern history.

Most of the accidents which ended with a death occurred in the outlying districts, but says Rupp, there is no defin· ite pattern, making any cor· rective measures difficult to ·put into effect. The 'hours of 3 to 7 p.m. are the worst for driving, due probrubly to the greater percentage of people traveling the highways at H1at time. Biggest day for

Although generally recogniz· cd as a revolutionary war general and first president of lhc United States, Washington's first love was the farm he called Mount Vernon. There he was one of the first in the nation to practice continuous planting, crop rotation, fertilization, and other soil conservation and improvement methods. IL was more than a century after Washington's death before general use was made of many of the sound agriculture practices that he advocated.

Orange Marmalade Glamorizes Ordinary Pudding By Dorothy Maddox Here's a new-fashioned way to make a better and quicker bread pudding than grandmother ever bummed a tune over. What's so good ab.out it is that it's made,,wilh either sweet or bitter orange marmalade as the main sweetener. It's easy to make, and doesn't require any extra shopping if you have bought and kept a few tumblers of either sweet or bit· ter marmalade on your pantry shelves. The other ingredients, such as day-old br<'ad, eggs and milk, etc., are always with you. Topped with a frothy cloud of sweetened meringue, this pudding is handsome enough anil

special enough even for a party. Oran·ge Marmalade Bread Pudding (Makes 6·8 Servings) Three eggs, separated; 4 cups milk, scalded; 2 table· spoons butter or margarine; 213 cup orange marmalade, sweet or bitter; 1h cup sugar; 'h teaspoon vanilla flavoring; 5 slices day-old bread, cul in l·'inch squan•s; 14 cup sugar. In a large bowl, beat 3 egg yo.lies and 1 egg white. Reserve remaining 2 egg whites for mel'ingwi. Gradually stir in milk, blending well. Then stir in butter, % cup of the orange mar· malade, 1/;, cup sugar, salt, vanilla and bread; mix lightly but thoroughly. Pour mixture into a buttered, B~ -quart baking dish. Set bak· ing dish in a pan of hot water. (The waler should come within 1 inch of the top of baking dish). Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees F.) 45 to 50 min-

u Les, or until a knife jnserted near one side of the pudding comes out clean. Remove baking dish from the oven. Turn oven regulator to hot 425 ·degrees F. Spread top of pudding with the remaining % cup of orange marmalade. To make the meringue: In a bowl, whip two egg whites un· ti! they form soft peaks.. Add % cup sugar, a tablespoon at a time, whipping afler each addition until the mixture is glossy and forms sti.ff peaks. Spoon the meringue over the pudding in a circle or oval shape. Put ba>king dish in the pan of hot water and bake ffbout 5 minutes or until the meringue is lightly browned. Decorate meringue with additional orange marma'lade. Serve warm.

By the Staff of the Health Sciences Division Ulllversity of Washington School teachers are foster parents for nine months of the year. They have a great re· spons~bility in safe-guarding the health of the ·school child. They can do a good job in this field only when the real parent sends a healthy child to school. It Is the responsibility of the real parent to have the child examlr>ed regularly by a competent physician. Such a physical examinayon does not take too long. It does require that the child strip ofif all clothing so that the examiner can see the child as a phys'ical unit. Posture, legs, feet, bone and body develop· ment and nutrition are as im· portan t as heart and lungs, ton· sils and teeth. Tonsils should come out only when the family physician recommends it. Authorities still do not believe· it good procedure to remove tonsils in the presence of a poliomyelitis outbreak in lhe community. August and September are the months when polio is most prevalent in this state. Immuniza fion against diphtheria, smallpox and tetanus arc recommended protections for everyone. The family physician

Clover Creek School To Mark 100 Years Of Educating, March 4

should include them, if needed, or the boosters for them, as a part of his program for pro· tecting the health of the child. Many schools still maintain immunization programs annually. It is better if the child is protected 'before going to school, however. Teeth are important functioning parts of the human body. Many parents will not bother filling the first or baby teeth when they show cavities. This is a mistake. The child should make regular visits to the dentist. Too often the necessary. visit is put off and holes in te.eth be· come larger and larger. Parents, teachers, a!lc\I com· munity are joined in promoting a healthy environment for the school. child. Doctors, dentists and nurses are a team ready to help in the prevention of disease, or the cure of it should it occur. Given ample food, in reasona•ble balance, the normal child will put it to the best use of his body. To keep that body a strong healthy one is everybody's business.

The Man· Behind The Scene

Hayes Alan Jenkins of Akron, Ohio walked off with the world figure skating title in Oslo, Nor· way last week after several days of tough competition. The 19 year old college stu· den't put 011 a dazzling display of free style skating on the final day of the meet to win the title by a wide margin. This is the second straight year that Jenkins has overshadowed the best skaters in the world. To add to the laurels of the U.S. skating team was Tacoma's Jimmy Grogan who captured second place honors. This was Jimmy's second year in a row to eome home with the second best prize, last year tralling Jenkins by approxi· matcly the same margin in the point system. In the women's division, Tenley Albright of Boston suffer· ed a foal heartbreak in the final event when she slipped and fell. This fall cost the 18-year old blonde the women's title. She had been leading the WO· men's division from the open· ing day and was almost a cinch to cop the big trophy until the fall. She finished in the runner. up spot.
