if all that you saw had been fat, it would

ONE THING WHICH taking up a
notch in my belt has shown me has been
the ingenious engineering which went,
into the process of making a belt.
Had you ever noticed how a blt

Had you noticed that by the time it gets
to cutting you in the middle on onie
notch to the , point where it is
uncomfortable sitting down, that it
feels comfortable on the next notch,
after it has been let out? Still the belt
holds up your britches, but the holes are
just far enough apart to accommodate
an expanding girth at the proper rate
and still give ample support for your
I noticed that one day the belt wasd
doing an adequate job of holding up my
pants. I put the same tug as usual on the
end of the belt and it slid right into the
old familiar hole. The very next day,
with the same tug, it went one hole
beyond the usual hole. Lo and behold,
without any thought on the matter or
any forcing on my part, the belt 'just
closed in another notch and there I was.
FOR THE PAST few weeks I had
just about given up on the weight loss

myself to distraction. I thought I was a
prime candidate for anexoria nervosa,
but the scales showed only 10 pounds
lost, in three months time. I was just
about to, give it up and leave all that
muscle right where it was. If I couldn't
lose it starving myself as I had been, it

about your encouragement!
I am now convinced thenotches in a
belt are engineered to give hope to
those who are losing weight by. being
taken up on the day the one trying to
lose weight is ready to give it up. Belt
notches are engineered so they will be
just far enough apart to keepyour hope
alive and spur you on for the next three
months of doing without, just so you canl
be rewarded with someone saying,
-"aren't you losing weight?" or so your
belt will suddenly go in one extra notch
when you fasten it up some morning.

TIPS & TECHNIQUES
Food size, shape and composition can make important differ-
ences in cooking time and, cooking evenness of the food. Bone-
less cuts of meat cook moa . evenly than meats containing bones.
Similar t6 conventional cooking, the meat next to the bone in
dense foods will take longer to cook. In less dense, bony foods
such as chicken legs, the bony areas will cook faster than more
dense areas. Shield bony areas with strips of aluminum foil to
Caution: Refer to owners manual for your microwave oven
regarding, the use of 'aluminum foil.

each Cobbler an American Classic
Peach cobbler, like peach buckle, peach fool or pandowdie
have been created by cooks with a lot of creativity, and a sense
of humor, too. The fact that they're still enjoyed today is a tri-
bute to their goodness. This peach cobbler is a classic version -
from the makers of Karo corn syrup.
2 pounds peaches, peeled, 1/ teaspoon ground nutmeg
sliced (about 4 cups) . 1, cup Karo light corn syrup
1 tablespoon corn starch Biscuit Topping (recipe
1 tablespoon corn starch follows)
Place peaches in 1'2-quart casserole dish. In small bowl stir to-
gether corn starch and nutmeg. Gradually stir in corn syrup until
smooth. Pour over peaches; toss to coat'evenly. Bake in 400�F
oven 20 minutes.. Drop Biscuit Topping by spoonfuls onto hot
fruit mixture. Bake 25 to 30 minutes longer or until golden
brown. Makes �8 servings'
Biscuit Topping: In bowl stir together 1 cup unsifted flour, 1
teaspoon baking powder and 's teaspoon salt. With pastry-blender
or 2 knives cut in 2 tablespoons corn oil margarine until coarse
crumbs form. In bowl stir togethertogether cup milk, 2 tablespoons
Karo light corn syrup and teaspoon grated lemon rind. Stir
into flour mixture just until blended.

Mr. Settlemire and his wife
Violet started harvesting this
blueberry plot the last of June,
and a month later they had
harvested over 2000 lbs. of
berries from! this plot. These
yields areastronomical for 3�/2
to 4 year old plants. According
to our Extension research
data at the University of
Florida, a good yield for three
year old plants will usually be
between 2/ to 5 Ibs. compared
to yields ranging anywhere
from 16 tp 26 lbs. per plant in
Mr. Settleszire's research
plot. Mr. Settlemire contri-
butes his high yields to good
soil, large volumes of water
(natural rainfall and irriga-
tion), and proper pruning.
As information for. those
who would like to grow
blueberries: Blueberries are
most productive on soils with
low pH, preferably 4.2 to 5.2'
acid-type flatwood soils are
normally well suited for blue-
berries. The presence of na
tive blueberry plants. is a
definite indication of good.
blueberry land. Plants on soils,
with a high pH normally make
poor growth. Those grown in:'
areas where large amounts of'
wood or logs have been burned:
also make poor growth, since
the basic minerals in the ash'.
raise the soil pH above
optimum levels. Deep sands

Six rabbiteye cultivars are
recommended for planting in
our area. These are: Blue-
gem, Tifblue, Woodard, Brite-
blue, Delite and -Southland.
The, harvest season for rabbit-
eye cultivars is from late May
Most blueberry cultivars
are . self-upfruitful. Thus at
least two cultivars must be
planted together for good
pollination. Alternating culti-
vars by either single or double
rows is recommended.
The most satisfactory spa-
cing between rows is largely
determined by equipment
used in cultivation. The re-
commended spacing is 6 by 12
Before planting, the soil
should be well cultivated by
plowing, through disking or
rototilling to a depth of at least
six inches. Plants should be
set on beds normally about
eight to 14 inches high if the
soil is poorly drained. Bare-
root plants should be trans-
planted during the winter, and
care must be taken to prevent
drying of the fibrous roots

Kids Need Inununizations for School
Florida law requires that all
children entering school for
the first time- any school and
all grades- must be im-
munized and have proof of a -
physical examination by a
physician in the previous 12
months. The required immu-
nizations include: Polio, Mea-
sles, Mumps, Rubella, Dip-
theria; Tetanus and Pertussis.
Immunizations are import-
ant. They protect your child
against diseases that can have,
a devastating effect on them.
While it may seem that no one
has these diseases any more,
some are actually on the rise.
In the first six months of 1983,
138 cases of measles were
reported in Florida; 218 cases
were reported in 1982.
According to Henry Janow-
ski, Director of the Immuniza-
tion Program, Florida has the
second highest number of
measles cases of any state in
the country this year.
"The best way to protect
children is to be sure that
every child is immunized,"
said Janowski. '
Last year, 97.1 percent of
Florida children entering kin-
dergarten and first grade
were in compliance with the
Since Florida law states that
all children must have proof of
immunization, this year heal-
th officials will not only be
looking at kindergarten, and
first grade, they will be taking
a critical look at immuniza-
tion records in all grade
Most children receive their
immunizations as infants.
However, some shots may
have been forgotten or records
may have. been misplaced. By
planning now, you can avoid
the last minute rush.
Immunizations and physical
exams are available through
your local county health unit
or private physician.. As the
school year approaches, how-
ever, lines at the health units
get long and doctors' sche-
dules may be booked. There
may not be time to obtain a
copy of a misplaced shot
So begin planning now. As
you make your preparations
for your children to attend
school, be sure that they have
all the required immuniza-
tions. Make that first day of
school a relaxed and happy on.
Most important, don't leave
your child unprotected.
