NAME ADDRESS (Leth.) How To Control A Runaway Car It's the rush hour and the traffic on the expressway is heavy and moving at a fast, steady pace. You take your foot off the accelerator as your car approaches the exit lane crowded with vehicles, but your car does not slow down. In- stead you speed forward the gas pedal of your car is stuck. What do you do? It couldn't happen to me, you say, my car is in perfect con- dition and besides that it just doesn't happen. "Well, it does warns K. E. Behtell, Secretary of the Allstate Insurance Company of Canada. "It happens every year to experienced and inexpe- rienced drivers in all models, makes and years of cars. And because they didn't know how to bring their car under con- trol many of these drivers were killed or injured or killed and injured ohters." TURN OFF IGNITION If and when it happens to you turn off the car's igni- tion and begin braking to a safe stop. Leave your car in gear, in both manual and automatic transmission cars, to take ad- vantage of the braking help available from the engine. "Keeping your car in gear is important for two other rea- Bethell points out. "First, time which may be important in some situations, would be lost by the act of shifting into neutral. Secondly, if the transmission were shift- ed 'into neutral, the engine would 'race' and 'roar' which would only add to the confu- sion of the possible near-panic1 condition."

FREEZING VEGETABLES Tj1 R 0 Z E N vegetables can taste and look like fresh ones if well-proven methods are followed explicitly. There are numerous varieties of vege- tables w h 1 c h differ consider- ably in quality after freezing. Buy or grow only those rec- ommended. Experimental cen- tres have been testing hun- dreds of varieties to find out the ones that are the most sat- isfactory and y.'hieh will give us a high quality frozen prod- uct. Vegetables deteriorate rapid- ly after being picked so the faster they are frozen, the bet- ter. If something unforeseen should happen to come up be- fore you can g2t your product frozen, keep it in your refriger- ator at a temperature of 34 to 40 degrees F. They should also be harvested at the proper time. Overmature vegetables become tough and immature ones lack flavor and are soft. Pick when they are tender and just right for table use. Blanching of vegetables kill enzymes and also gives them deeper, more attractive color To blanch, have a large pan enough to hold one gallon water for each one pound o vegetables. Place them in wire basket, a cheesecloth ba. or a colander and after the wa ter comes to a full boil, lowe the container into the water When the water returns to th boil the second time starl counting the recommendec blanch time. When the time is up put immediately into ice wa ter. (Freeze water in clean, 4 ounce tins beforehand ant place these containers in th cooling water. Ice cubes may also be Do not leave vegetables longer than neces sary in the water. When cool let water drain off and placi vegetables on a clean, large terry towel to remove any ex cess moisture.

Embellish metal curves and curlicues with a coat of cooling turquoise or lime or a splash of shim- mering yellowl walls. If this is not possible stagger them to allow free cir culation of air. Always choos the best moisture and vapor proof packages such as plasti bags, rectangular top or en opening folding wax cartons etc. Do not freeze more than yo need. Generally speaking, fro- zen foods should be used u; within six to twelve months. 1 vegetables should thaw out, do not refreeze them Cook in as little water as pos sible and in the shortest tim possible, according to the time table you are using. Seed catalogues usually rec ommend varieties that are ex cellent for freezing. Keep this in mind for next year.

What are the dif- ferent kinds of lime thai one could nut on a garden. Ans. There is hydratec Urns, which is fairly concen- trated, and is formed from burned lime and water and is quite fast acting and is a fluffy white powder. It is more ex- pensive than ground limestone and the end result is the same. Ground Limestone or agricul- tural lime is greyish and gritty and finely ground lime rock. This is the one used most. It s slower to work than hydrated lime. Dolomitic Lime is com- posed of 20 to 30 per cent mag- nesium and 30 to 50 per cent calcium. This is used, some- imes in preference over ground limestone as it con- ains magnesium. Plaster's me is too coarse to use. Ex- cessive liming causes chlorosis yellowing of the NOTE: No liming of gardens is needed from Edmonton, south ami east, and also in Calgary and Lethbridge and surround- ing area, as these areas al- eady suffer from excessive ime. Unless your soil has been ested and shows you need it, o not lime. Any questions should be sent vith self-addressed, stamped nvelope to Mrs. I. Young 620 Centre B St. N.W.
