And here's a couple of cook- ing tips from The Homemaker, Miss Barbara Stuart of Vulcan: "Why is it NOT advisable to add baking soda lo intensify the color of green vegetables as they cook, or lo soften dried vegetables as they soak?

Hard water which is alkaline can cause the cabbage to change from red to blue. The acid neu- tralizes the alkalinity.

When Eatonb first opened their doors we were writing our fifth annual report. The famous T. Eaton Company goes way back to 1869. We go back a bit further to 1864. This was even before the nation's founding fathers had got together at Charlottetown. it was early spring, March 18th. The place was London, Ontario. On that day 25 pioneer businessmen climbed the steps to the room above MacFie's Store and founded the company that is now Canada Trust. Our first office was just behind that store. Now of course, both MacFie's Store and our first office are gone.- But'the original idea born at that meeting still lives on in our present company philosophy; "To bring the maximum amount of energy and in- telligence to bear on the project in order to most effectively serve the client." It can't die. It just keeps getting better, For the more we grow, the more service we are able to provide. This is why we're now one of Canada's largest trust companies, with more branches coast to coast than anyone else. if you have a financial need of any kind, no matter how complex or small, we can likely service that need for you. We're as close as your phone... or visit any of our offices. Anytime. CANADA TRUST HURON ERIE Lethbridge Calgary Edmonton Medicine Hat t Red Deer women's lib candidates. !Z7all0a.ra.
