Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 9, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa A Bunny Bigger Than She Intrigued by a bunny that is bigger than she is, Brigit Hughes, 2Vi, of Allentown, Pa., offers the life-size rabbit a friendly lick of her lollipop. The bunny is part of the Easter display at Hess' department store here. By Robert I). Carey MONTICELLO, Ark. (UPI) — Good news: The First Annual Arkansas State Tobacco Spitting contest is open to anyone who can compete without getting sick. “Anybody can enter,” said Mrs. Carol Dawson, who is in charge of the event. “We’re not discriminating.” “Women will be allowed to spit, cheek by jowl, with the men and may the best spitter prevail.” The great tobacco spitting contest will be held April 23, right there on the square in downtown Monticello. Prizes are three engraved spittoons. Rules are simple. There are two categories — distance and accuracy. “Actually there’ll be three because we have three spittoons,” said Mrs. Dawson, but nobody has thought of what it will be yet. Maybe it will be for the best all-around spitter. Friendliest spitter is also being considered. The rules are simple: Each contestant will be given one package of chewing tobacco and when ready will be allowed three spits from a designated line. Spitter who cross the line with their feet, although net with their chin, will be disqualified. The spit must be the size of a half-dollar when it hits to qualify as legal. Spitoffs will be held to de- event of a tie in either catego-termine the winner in the ry. VISIT The Office of Dr. C. R.

I have had 27 children. I was married the first time when I was 14. I had three by my first husband and 24 by I this one and it seems that thei more children I have, the less interest my husband has in me. I wrote to you a year ago and you told me to get my husband to go to the priest with me. I knew hb’d never go and I was right. He hasn’t set foot inside a Catholic church except for our childrens’ christenings and weddings. The priest told me to pray to God that my husband would see the light and fall in love with me again, but I know that is never going to happen. He’s a good man in many ways. He has never raised his hand against me. He has worked steady and doesn’t owe anybody a dime, but he is not nearly as loving as he used to be. And I miss that. Can you help me? Could it be because he was born and raised in Mexico and I was born and raised in Texas? TEXARKANA DEAR TEXARKANA: Maybe. Most Mexican-born men have tile old world Spanish attitude about women—they .should be seen and not heard, should always have a baby in their arms and another on the way, stay home and never complain. * * * DEAR ABBY: I am being held prisoner against my will in the Oklahoma State penitentiary in McAlester.

By Jeanne Lesem NEW YORK (UPI) - Supermarkets on the Lower East side of Manhattan sell pigs ears, feet and tails, meatless beef bones and pork skin from which the fat has been removed almost entirely. A restaurant on the fashionable Upper East side suggests that its patrons take home ready-cooked duck and goose gizzards — for their pets. Somewhere between 14 th and 75th streets, people have forgotten how overcrowded countries and the poor everywhere learned long ago to use even the skin, bones and innards of meat and fowl to enrich diets that are heavily dependent on vegetable protein. Ifs not being suggested that everyone — or anyone — start eating pig ears, although they are a common ingredient in some really delicious West Indian stews. But ethnic and national dishes in general represent an appetizing way of stretching food budgets during this period of record high prices. Macaroni products are an obvious example. Americans usually prepare them with meat or seafood sauces and, occasionally, with cheese. But in Italy they’re just as likely to be served with vegetable sauces instead — zucchini, cauliflower, lentils or broccoli, for instance. One Italian lenten sauce uses two kinds of nuts (a good alternate source of protein), some raisins and grated cheese (more good protein). Dried beans are another good example. A French Cassoulet is unsweetened baked beans to which you add as much or as little meat or fowl as your budget and conscience permit. Preserved goose is a traditional ingredient, b u t pieces of duck, chicken, left over smoked or fresh ham or even pork skin and-or sausages could be used instead. Peanuts belong in the dried bean class because they’re actually legumes instead of nuts. We treat them largely as snack food but African cooks use them as a protein-ex-tender in stews and pound them into paste for rich sauces to make meat go farther. As for gizzards, they may be pet food here, but by Chinese standards they’re delicacies to be reserved for honored guests. Of course, the cook trims away gristle before slicing and stirfrying. Pea soup is one of the Netherlands’ national dishes, thick and rich enough to make an entire meal. There are as many different recipes for it as there are Dutch families, some of whom use pigs feet to enrich the soup. But it’s not uncommon to find half a pound of ham or frankfurters as the only meat ingredient. In the Middle East, chick peas, lentils and other dried legumes are widely used in salads and stews that contain little or no meat. Rice and corn meal also are international budget stretchers. Paella is a Spanish casserole that uses rice with bits of meat, fowl and-or seafood. America’s Jambalaya, Spanish Rice and Hoppin’ John are variations on that theme, with the latter two generally meatless. Tamales and tamale pie make a little ground or chopped meat or poultry into many servings with a corn meal crust or coating. In Italy, the same basic grain product is used for Gnocchi, or dumplings, and Polenta, or corn meal mush. Both usually contain grated cheese or are served with it. < * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * # * * # * * * * * * * * * * Female Streaker Tells of Naked Interrogation DENVER (UPI) - “Mary” I didn't give her real name to officers when arrested for in-I decent exposure during a streak * with two male friends. Nor did she give her real name to the judge who fined her $100. But “Mary” did give her story to the Denver news media. She claimed she and her friends were interrogated naked for 30 minutes in a brightly lit room while a heavy stream of officers walked by. Finally, she & said, a policeman gave her a newspaper because her red bandanna “didn’t help much.” Police Chief Art Dill Sunday defended officers who refused the teenagers permission to return to their car for clothes after a pre-dawn streak last month near downtown Denver. “Mary” said tihey decided to streak after smoking marijuana. Dill said the patrolmen “had no way of knowing whose car it really was. If they had gone into that car themselves, it might have been an unlawful entry.” Dill said the girl and her companions stood naked in a room next to one where suspected drunk drivers were given sobriety tests. He said t h e “parade” of patrolmen the girl complained about merely were j walking through halls of depart-jment headquarters on normal 'business. “They took us right in the front door (of headquarters),” the 19-year-old girl said, “and down the hall. It seemed like every cop in the place came down on us. “One of the guys that arrested us had me by the arm and I another cop came down the hall, looked at me and asked. Wow. where did you pick that up?’ ” The girl, who said she was ad- ^ vised by her attorney not to! J give her real name, said the ar-! ^ resting officers wouldn’t let Kirlin’s is an Easter Wonderland of Candy and treats for children and grown ups too!
