Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, September 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Herald Family The Homemaker By LINDA WHITSON District Home Economist (in training) What better way to recognize Albertas' Agricultural Bounty than by using delicious Alberta's vegetables. Now that fall is here, perhaps we should take time out to look at some of the different vegetables that are now in season. Both summer and winter squash are native to the Americans. They were originally found in Northern Argentina, near the Ardes, and from there were carried to other parts of the world. Summer squash includes varieties that are used in their immature form. The skin is usually tender and edible, flesh is soft and sometimes spongy, and seeds are tender and edible. Winter squash includes varieties that are used in their mature form. The skin is usually hard, and inedible, flesh is firm and drier than summer squash. The seeds are well developed and inedible. When you buy squash, be sure to check that the skin is free from soft spots or damage. Summer varieties include scallop, vegetable marrow and zucchini. They must be stored in the refrigerator and used within one week. Winter varieties include the acorn or pepper squash buttercup, butternut and hub- bard squash. They must be stored in a cool dry place or at room temperature. Storage time varies from one week if kept at room temperature to several months if kept cool. Preparation can take a variety of forms. Squash can be split in half or quarters, sprinkled with salt and butter and baked in a low to moderate oven. Another method is to peel the squash and boil in a minimum amount of water or steam until tender and then serve mashed with butter. Broiling, pan frying and pressure cooking are also alternates for cooking squash. Or perhaps if you want a really exciting, different dish you can try some of the following recipes. BEEF STUFFED SQUASH 3 medium acorn squash 'A cup water Vz cup chopped onion Vz cup diced celery 2 tablespoons butter 1 pound minced beef 1 cup bread crumbs 1 teaspoon salt teaspoon pepper Vz teaspoon oregano 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce Vj cup chopped raisins Cut squash in half and remove seeds.

Card for old folks Ann Landers OTTAWA Standard identification cards may be available for Canada's old age pensioners by the end of the year. Reports indicate the scheme could be passed by the Commons within two months although some officials cau- tion it's unlikely to happen that soon. The cards would serve as handy identification documents for men and women in the senior citizen category so they could readily take advantage of special reduced prices and other op- portunities being offered to people over 65 by various levels of government, as well as by banks and other private organizations or agencies. The cards would also qualify senior citizens for reduced fares or free travel on municipal or provincial public transit systems where the special benefits are already available. Once the plan wins final en- dorsement from the health and welfare department, it's expected to move speedily- through treasury board and the cabinet. The only probable snag is a revival of the cries of "police state" which were first raised in 1957 when the Diefenbaker government attempted to in- troduce a uniform numbering system for all Canadians. Health and Welfare Minister Marc Lalonde has been meeting with provincial health ministers during a sw- ing across the country this week and it's believed the ID card plan may be one of the points under discussion. British Columbia already operates a senior citizen identification program and issues cards to anyone over 65. A similar scheme is under ac- tive consideration by the On- tario government and could be adopted soon, if Parliament doesn't come out with a Canada-wide program first. The federal program would differ from the one in B.C. in that only those who qualify for old age security benefits by meeting residency re- quirements would eet the cards. Dear Ann Landers: My hus- band and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in two months, if I can stick around that long. The problem is his gambling. I feel like a widow. He is either out play- ing cards, betting the horses, at a hockey game, or it's foot- ball, or baseball anything where he can lay down a bet. We have no life together because his only interest is gambling and I hate it. We are snowed under with bills. I'm afraid to answer the telephone or the doorbell. It's "cash only" at the grocer's now. also the drugstore and the dry cleaners where we used to have charge accounts. It's humiliating not to have any credit. My husband didn't gamble when we were first married. It started about four years ago when he won at the track and then he picked up on a world championship fight. Now gambling is his whole life and I'm a nervous wreck because of it. My doctor says I have every right to divorce him. What is your advice? Odds Against Me Dear Friend: Apparently you haven't heard of Gamblers Anonymous. They have done a remarkable job of rehabilitating compulsive gamblers who had been hook- ed for years. At present G.A. has 250 chapters in the U.S. and Canada and around the world. Look in your phone book under Gamblers Anonymous. If they are not listed, write to the National Headquarters for literature. G.A. has helped many families through cor- respondence. The address is: P.O. Box 17173. Los Angeles. California 90017. For wives whose husbands won't go there is Gam-Anon, which I heartily recommend. Dear Ann Landers: My gripe: Parents. Kids and Goodnight Kisses. Our friends have three lovely children. The mother insists that the kids kiss everyone in the room "goodnight" before they go to bed. H make? no difference if they arc seeing the people for the first time. Everybody has Jo gel slobbered on. One kid doesn't care much for kissing and it's always a hassle to get him Jo do it. The other two use it as a stalling technique. Will you please share your Ibougfiis fm this subject? Against Free-Form Oscula- tion Dear Against: 1 think it's sweet when children kiss their parents goodnight, and anyone else they feel like kissing. But to hassle the little darlings to kiss strangers (or even relatives) if they don't feel like it isn't a good idea. As for those overtime smoochers who are trying to stay up later, they should be told. "One kiss only and off to bed." Period.

Phone 328-1241 Royal Purple leader strives to encourage "Service is the rent we pay for the space we occupy on this earth." As part of her motto this year as Supreme Honored Royal Lady of the Royal Pur- ple of Canada, Lillian French is visiting as many lodges as possible, bringing messages, help and inspiration to all. Mrs. French, who started her intinerary on Sept. 5, plans to visit 65 lodges by Dec. 5. "I will be doing most of my travelling in Alberta and B.C. where there are 180 lodges out of the total of 307 across Canada. For instance, there are only 83 lodges from Manitoba to Newfoundland and 112 in Alberta alone." The Order is the women's auxiliary to the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, but has its own charter, con- stitution and ritual. Money for the Purple Cross Fund is raised by various means in different cities and towns. In Lethbridge, members raise some of their money by helping at the week- ly Elks bingo, hold annual fall and spring teas and raffles. She said that the first Satur- day in May is designated for Purple Cross and Deaf Detec- tion. On this day, each lodge is responsible to raise money for the fund. Another special day is Royal Purple Day, which lands on the first Wednesday in June. Each lodge, as a whole, does an act of charity many towards senior LILLIAN FRENCH citizens, hospital patients and blind people. She arrived in Lethbridge Sept. 16 and will leave Tuesday. During' her stay here, she has visited lodges in Picture Butte, Barons, Granum, Fort Macleod, Milk River, Lethbridge and will be in Taber, Tuesday evening. Mrs. French of Hanna has been a member of the Order for 36 years and was installed as the supreme head of the Order at the national conven- tion in Saskatoon on July 31. The main objective of the Order of the Royal Purple is the Elks Purple Cross Fund. Deaf Detection and Develop- ment Program. In an interview at the Holi- day Inn this week, Mrs. French said the Purple Cross Fund is unique in respect to other national charities as it names no specific disease or illness. "It provides assistance to any child in Canada up to 18 years, regardless of race, creed, color or religion who may need medical attention, glasses, hearing aids or other necessities which are not available through any other source." The Elks Deaf Detection and Development Program has been designed for the earliest possible detection of hearing impairment in the Canadian child. She noted that last year the Ladies of the Royal Purple contributed over to this fund. Mrs. French's term as Supreme Honored Royal Lady will terminate July 1975 at the annual convention which will be held in Sault Ste. Marie. "But. I will be presiding over the convention which also marks the diamond an- niversary of the Order." The first convention was held in Vancouver in 1915. Her personal aim during her term is to visit as many lodges as possible or as she said, "as long as my health permits." She hopes to visit every lodge in Alberta.
