Patchett has contended Iowa Data contracts apparently pro- vide for "all accumulated data in printed form only to be sur- rendered (o the county" at the end of the contract. The law provides "any elec- tion or registration data or] records which may be in the possession" of the company arc to remain the property of the county. Zegel has insisted it appears the "legislature copied the law out of our contract." MOSTLY For MEN Dyersville Residents Protest Freeway Plan AMES More than 100 resi dents between Dyersville and Farley have signed a petition presented to the Iowa highway commission objecting to two al- ternates for location of the new freeway 520. The citizens opposed both the north alternate, which parallels the present highway 20 approxi- mately three fourths of a mile to the south, and the so-called south alternate which is located a short distance further south. The north alternate would be o c a t e d approximately one fourth of a mile south of Dyers- ville while the south alternate would be located about one mile south of Dyersville. Both alternates have a com- mon alignment at a point about one and a half miles west of Farley. The highway commission is also studying a third alternate which involves adding of two lanes to the present highway 20. FOR A Sunday night supper or other informal oc- casion, it's nice to have dishes which can be prepared before guests arrive and need only short-term baking in the oven before putting on a buffet. Two such dishes we served to a bridge group are corn and oyster bake and baked spiced fruit. They were pre- pared to accompany baked ham and relishes. The ham was cooked well in advance of the meal and kept just warm. I chose a canned ham because of conve- nience, placing in a baking dish with.fat side up and coat- ing with a preparation of equal parts cup) of honey and beer and 1 tablespoon yellow mustard. Bake to 2 hours at 350 degrees, basting with the mixture. Corn-Oyster Bake The corn and oyster bake may be put together a couple of hours before you want. to serve. Drain thoroughly 1 pint oysters. Combine 2 cans (16- ounce) yellow creamstyle corn, 1 beaten egg, 1 teaspoon salt, V- teaspoon pepper, 1 t a b 1 e s p o on Worcestershire sauce, Vt teaspoon prepared mustard. Add drained oysters and mix. Pour into a well-buttered 2- quart casserole and dot with 2 tablespoons butter. When ready to bake, cover top with '.i cup fine bread crumbs and put into a 350-degree oven 45 minutes. Fruit Dish The fruit dish is prepared this way. Drain No. 2 cans of pineapple chunks, pear halves, and Queen Anne sweet cherries. Use juice for an- other purpose. Now drain a No. 2Vj can of sliced peaches and reserve the juice separa- tely. Put peach juice in a sauce pan, add 3 whole cloves and a stick of cinnamon. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until juice has absorbed spice flavors. Allow to cool, discarding cin- nanion and cloves. Prepare 1% cups bread cubes (crouton size) and but- ter them in a skillet. In a deep heat-proof casserole mix fruits and bread cubes. Mix spicy peach juice with Vi cup tawny port wine. Pour over and bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Do you have a favorite sup- per dish or a question about food? Write Chuck Flynn, in care of The Gazette, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52406.
