By LOUGLUBZINSKI LIFE Staff Writer Following the call of the legendary Johnny Appleseed, it's time to head out' to the apple orchard to buy that crisp, juicy, fleshy fruit that the cool autumn weather ripens. It's apple season! "This next two weeks is going to be It's epp/e season Saturday activities climax week -*« ~-K*l I With a calendar of activities ranging from the football game to the all-campus mixer, Saturday promises to meet its role as the climax of an already busy Homecoming Week. According to Gary Ford, Homecoming Committee chairman, the only real disappointment has been the cancellation of the noonday roast, "Not one sponsor from the Mt; Pleasant area could be found to help Us with the roast," Ford said. The Homecoming football game against Eastern Illinois begins at 1:30 p.m.' and will- feature performances by the Marching Chips as well" as the CMU cheerleaders and pompon squad. Miss CMU and her court .will-be presented ^^iialf. time'by President William Boyd, who Will address the. crowd. Post - game activities include open houses arid coffee hours at many sororities and fraternities as well as in the residence* halls* Alumni will also get together for a'coffee "hour, at the. student bazaar planned in Finch after the game. Saturday evening offers two dances for. those interested. A semi-formal AWS Ball will be presented in the University Center Ballroom from 9-13 p.m. Tickets are $3 a couple, and. can be purchased «at,thfeB;C?^T4*k:e*t;»0fliee.» At the same time, a mixer is scheduled in Finch Fieldhouse. "Mobius" will provide the music and there is no charge. Throughout Saturday, both the carnival and bazaar will be open, Ford concluded. the peak of our winter apple season," says Ed Mcintosh, owner of the Mcintosh Apple Farm on west M-'20in Mt. Pleasant, "The selection of varieties will never be better." Mcintosh has the only apple orchard in the Mt. Pleasant area, and admits that apples are big business this time of year. By the end of the season, around the second week in November, he expects to haveharvested more than i0f 000 bushels of apples. Nationally, more than 150 million bushels will be picked, stored and sold. At the Mcintosh Farm, , six of - the major 14 apple varieties are harvested. "The climate, which is so unpredictable in the area, severely limits the varieties we can grow. By the same token, the changeable conditions have scared off all competitors," says Mcintosh. The varieties he grows,, include red delicious, golden delicious, Mdntosh(no relation, the owner says), Jonathan, Cortland and the Northern Spy.- ' Of these, the Mcintosh, the Jonathan and the Northern Spy are the most versatile apples. They can be used for fresh- eating, for* pies and for cooking, making them ail-purpose apples; ' , Apples for all times The Northern Spy is one of the older varieties of apples which remained popular as new, versatile strains of apples develop. It is the heaviest apple by volume and characterized by its oval shape. The Jonathan apple is a smaller variety. Splendid for eating, it is the best type to use for that fall treat—candied apples. t The Mcintosh is similar in appearance to the Cortland apple, but is much better eating. It is the lightest apple by volume of the group. Delicious apples, both red and golden are the crunchiest eating apples oh the market. This golden variety has been used in pies and found very- satisfactory. The Delicious are easily recognized by their elongated shape. The Cortland apple is preferred for cooking. It is highly resistant to browning, therefore making it ideal for* salads. It is characterized bys a heavy red color and waxy skin. Paper saves wear, tear When housewives go apple buying locally they will find them packaged in paper bags at the Mcintosh farms. Retail stores use plastic bags. "We have found that bagging the apples ourselves saves a lot of wear and tear .on them," says Mcintosh. Packaging sizes sr& of three basic volumes: pounds, bushels and pecks. There are three medium-sized apples of a pound, about 40 to a peck and about 150 in a bushel. In selecting ,apples, Mcintosh says, we always look for firm, crisp, well-colored apples. - One of the best guides to apple quality is the color. It should be bright and sparkly. And ground color(green area on red apples) should be greenish yellow, he added. Apples have fine keeping qualities, "If we can get the apples off the tree and into our coolers within 24 hours, they will keep for seven or eight months/' says Mcintosh., "The crucial point is not letting the apples get warm once they have been picked. We keep our refrigerators set at 33 degrees, which is, the ideal temperature." Greenish yellow is host He cautions that apples should be handled . carefully when consumers buy them, be-' cause the fruit, is undergoing a temperature change. Before storing, apples should be sorted and any with bruises or bro«- ken skin should be separated and used immediately, , Mcintosh advises keeping apples in plastic bags in the refrigerator. Bags with perforated holes keep the apples from shrinking. However, storing the iipples near the freezer is bad, for it's too cold and causes freezing, resulting in rapid deterioration. Not too many people put much faith in the old adage that "an apple a day keeps the doctor. away," but Mcintosh says a study by the Michigan State Agricultural Center has proven the medicinal values of apples, in case studies, the test group eating apples regularly were shown to be less susceptible to stomach disorder*. The same test group; showed a,. decrease in tooth decay. After that study, the apple has been called "Nature's Toothbrush" says Mcintosh, "At least by some of usi" Homecoming weekend calendar FRIDAY, OCT. 22 - "Psychedelic Friday' All Day - Carnival—South end-Lot 20 * 4 p.m. - Homecoming Alumni Coffee Hour and Registration at University Center, 4 p.m. - Homecoming Student Bazaar—Finch Gym.- 5 p.m.-Midnight - Homecom;ng Student Bazaar—Finch Gym. * 6:30 p.m. - Snake Dance—Begins at Southeast Quad. 7*ahd"9:iE> p.m;- Sigma BextarChi cartoon Festival. 5a cents, 128 Pearce. - ,—-•"■ 7:30 p.m. - Pep Rally Begins. ,.-;■'' 8 p.m. - Alumni Coffee Hour -- University Center. ^ 8:30 p.m. - Lighting'bf the Lambda Chi Alpha Homecoming Bonfire—BehimTfootball field.
