Here's Help With Canning All of us associate certain foods with summer such as; watermelon, sweet corn, tomatoes and peaches, Today's transportation methods have made the summer season longer but there is still that time when these foods are home grown and most plentiful. For this area now*s the time! This is also the time when many homemakers are canning and or freezing many of these plenti ful foods for later use. Your Cooperative Extension office has several excellent bulletins on canning and freezing fruits and vegetables as well as bulletins giving instructions for jams, jellies and pickles. You may have any of these by requesting them by phone 539-3631 or by writing Rella Bowers, County Extension Agent, Home Economic, Courthouse Harrison, Michigan.

READ IT NEXT WEEK InThe Sentinel Here's a pecular twist ! Dwellers in the ancient desert country of Africa coming to Michigan to learn how to control sand?

Club Members View Prize Beef On The 'Hook' By George MacQueen Clare Co. Extension Director Several 4-H and FFA beef club members received a liberal education last Thursday during a visit at the Clare Packing Company in Clare. The group was interested primarily in viewing their steer carcasses that were sold at the auction during the county fair. While they went into the cold storage room where the carcasses were hanging and went down the line looking at the rib eye and marbeling of the meat, lots of comment was raised. Several ladies who were present at this meeting commented that this is very worth while information and can help the homemaker visualize the beef carcass as she shops at the butcher's counter. Of course there were a few moments of reminising and regret in seeing the projects steer suspended and all ready to go to the consumer. Nick Jabour manager of the Clare Packing Company had each carcass that the Packing Company had slaughtered identified with the member's name and place position in the steer show. Conformation is a very important feature of the carcass as it hangs from the hoof. Another catagory is maturity as well as marbeling. The summary of the picture presented by these three features results in the final grade. The government grader pointed out many things that can be shown by a carcass. The condition of the bone and cartilage between the vertibrae and the back, tells a great deal concerning the age of the animal. The amount of marbeling or distribution of fat tissues in the red meat tissues gives indication as to the feeding program. Marbeling also affects the tenderness of the meat.

A large collection of letters are in The University of Michigan Historical Collections. Douglas remembered the cold mornings of his childhood when he dressed beside the big base burner: "Ours, as 1 recall, was a wood burner. It stood in the dining room. "We'd part with our coverings up stairs, and reluctantly grab our clothes and dash down the stairs to huddle close to the fire. "Odors floating in from the kitchen rivaled the cold in speeding up the dressing process. "I remember the pancakes for breakfast. Buckwheat usually, 'set' the night before with the crock well wrapped. "They were not the toy dainties of today but dinner plate size, duly drenched with home-made butter (cut fresh from the old gray crock) floated in syrup, then folded, turn over style. "No one had heard of calories in that day so the arithmetical statistics of eating which ruins the table conversation of nowdays did not enter into the feast. And feast those breakfasts were with steak, or ham and eggs, and fried potatoes to follow. How did our tummies hold it all! Well, we were young and they did!"
