For weeks the Ford Camp has claimed the president had 1,135 votes while Reagan s managers have said the former California governor was certain of 1,140 votes on the first ballot for the presidential nomination.

The Roll Call votes tonight occurring just 24 hours before the presidential balloting will be taken As a Clear sign of which Man will leave Kansas City As the Republican nominee for president.

Reagan backers Call it the a right to know Quot Rule. The Ford Camp describes it As Reagan s attempt to Force the president to endure an uproar similar to that which Reagan encountered when he named sen. Richard s. Schweiker As his Choice for the vice presidential nomination. Ford s backers called the Reagan proposal the a misery loves company Rule.

Are they Ever going to do anything about Branch Street because it is so bump. Thank you. Mrs. . A the assistant director of the Public works department.

Unfortunately Many dog owners think the first symptoms Are just a cold and Don t take the dog to a vet but unless treatment is begun in the Early stages the Chance of recovery is very slim that s Why an immunization program is so important for the dog As there is no permanent shot for Protection. And More Beans q. I did some Canning recently the first that i have done and i used the cold pack method of Canning. I Learned later that the jars were supposed to have been sterilized before beginning the Canning process but since they were new i merely washed them in soapy hot water rinsed them real Good packed the Beans in the jars filled the Jar with cold water with the Salt and i did boil them for three hours. They sealed nicely and Are very pretty. My question is i am so afraid of botulism is there any danger because i did not sterilize the jars beforehand i boiled the lids As i was told to do on the Container they came in but the jars i did not sterilize. Until i hear some word from experienced canners i am really afraid to eat them. I would also like some tips on freezing Corn and am afraid i have done that wrong too. I boiled that just a few minutes and put in ice and dried the ears. I put them in bags and sealed tightly and they look real pretty but i am afraid of that. A Little tip this time of year on Canning would certainly be helpful to me. Thank you. Anon. A sterilizing the jars is recommended by canners As an extra precaution but not doing so does no to pose nearly As much risk As your method of processing a i did boil them for three hours the botulinum bacteria can Only be killed at 240 degrees. You can boil something a til doomsday and the highest temperature will Only reach 212 degrees. It s the pressure in the pressure canners that boosts the temperature to the degree necessary. This is the word from the experienced canners the Home economics Extension agents who also stick by the saying a when in doubt throw it their Home freezing Booklet gives these times for boiling ears of Corn for freezing Small ears 11/4 inches or less in diameter 7 minutes medium ears 11/4-11/2 inches in diameter 9 minutes larger ears la minutes. Perhaps the Best Little tip is to get their Canning and freezing books.
