Philip Norman, in an article in the November Reader's Digest, condensed from Harper's. "The housewife may expect a: battle royal of nutritionists and plant breeders, of dehydrators canners and quick freezers, of locker-ptant operators and air transport carriers," the authors say. Already many signs of the coming flood are evident, they point out, citing new findings in :vitamin research, soil chemistry Car Owners Should :and food processing as contribut- ing to greater and more nutritive crops of everything from tomatoes Prepare Car For to wh00t.

Algeo of the Washington State Patrol warned today. "This is more important this year than ever before, because traffic engineers and saiety ex- perts say this will be the worst auto accident winter in history," Chief Al.g'eo added. "Your life may depend on how well your vehicle's safety equipment works - or on how well the other fellow's works" The reason for the prediction that this winter may set a new high in traffic accidents, Chief Algeo pointed out, is that the end- ing of gasoline rationing 'means more cars on the road, most of them about eight years old, and more miles to be traveled per car In addition, motorists, accus toned 'during the war to a compul- sory 35 miles an hour speed limit, may have become careless and prone to misjudge the distance within 'which they can stop their ,.ars traveling at higher apeeds, particularly on slippery pave- ments. Not only that, he said, but motorists have grown increasingly weary of war born restraints, and now that the restraints are lifted, are inclined, perhaps unconscious- ly, to take greater chances, just by way of celebration. "Even in normal years; Chief Algeo Said "winter is always the peak season for accidents. Studies of previous years snow that in wintertime, the traffic accident death rate increases from 24 to 53 per cent in 36 sn0w-belt states. This is due in part to inadequate traction on slippery pavements, and to reduced visibility, both le- cause of weather conditions and because there are more hours of darkness in winter than in sun,- mer." The answer to the winter safety problem, Chief Algeo said, lies in the best possible road maintenance education of motorists to take practical precautions, and proper car maintenance. He urged all city and county highway dpartmen4 to repair snow removal machines and endeavor to line up scarce labor for winter maintenance. He called upon all truck fleet operators and individual car own- ers to take immediate ste@s to put their cars in the safest possible eonditibn for winter. This, he said Messrs. Rorty and Norman state that through technical advances in this field "we have learned how to process elzery food in the veg- etable and animal kindom." With- in two years the quick-freezing industry expects to sell over a miRion freezing cabinets, they add plus 15,000 refrigeration locker @lants by 1950; _ While the authors concede thai the dehydration industry has not solved its basic problem, the reten- tion of both vitamins and flavor, they point out that it is investipg large sums in research and has al- ready solved, in the laboratory, the probln o retaining vitamin. C in dehydrated foods. A new source of protein cited by the Digest article is sunflower sed, which ".contains 52 per cent of protein, all of it available for ............ I as against 40 per wh'ch they term " our cheapest complete protein," the authors say: "it takes months to grow the best vegetable proteins; it takes years to grow beef. But it takes only hours to grow yeast. Nor does the tasbe offer serious difficttFcies. Experiments at the Brooklyn Navy Yard roved that adding food yeast to such dishes as goulash, curries, meat loaf, and stew sub- stantially, increased thee workers' daily intake of vitamins and pro- teins - without their knowing any- thing about it." Air transport of fresh produce, enabling ripe strawberries picked in Texas on Monday afternoon to reach Chicago homes on Tuesday morning, is another : development in "the prospect of a postwar flood of food good enough to af- ford the American housewife sat- isfaction."

On ,behalf of the crew, Earl MacKe, his orchard foreman, resented him with a fine pen and pencil set and his assistant shed manager, Mrs. Stanley Slade, was presented a lovely piece of Roseville pottery ,by Mrs. Tom Hartford for the group. During the evening R. C. Mon- roe sprang a surprise on his 82 year old mother by introducing her to the crowd. #211 her sons were presen t and the group rose to honor her.

"A motorist whose car is in shape has the safety battle half won," he said. .. Motorigts themselves, he said, can help reduce accidents by keep- ing their cars under control at all time when pavements are slippery with ice or covered with snow. Use of anti-skid chains in sUppery weather, he said, permits a motor- ist to stop his car in alf the dis- tar/ce that would otherwise be re- quired, and goad defrosters and lights provide visibility. The main causes of winter accidents, re- search shows, are the added haz- tards of skidding and impaired visibility. wer admitted to sanitoriums dur- PAPPY SAYS ..... ing the months of Jiy, August " Just after one of our worst and September.
