FIRESTONE FAMILY LIVING
SUMMERTIME IN DIXIE
Friendly sun, good soil and proper care advanced employees'
garden crops to harvest and others to approaching maturity by late
June. This corn, of "elephant-ear" height, is on the South York
road place of Edgar Bruca, Twisting. His sons, Richard (left), and

Take These Safety Measures
Before Leaving On Vacation
Last year, one employee fam
ily was well down the road to
ward a vacation trip when some
one remembered that in their
helter-skelter to be off, they had
left the iron plugged in—and
resting on the ironing pad be
sides! A long-distance telephone
call to a neighbor righted the
situation in time, and the vaca
tioners were on their way.
To avoid getting vacation time
off on the wrong foot, here is a
suggested list of points to check
off before embarking on your

For A Summertime Cooler
Try Floating Sundaes
Floating sundaes are the
answer to a variety of cool sum
mer desserts. Each one may start
with the same idea—an easy and
inexpensive pineapple sherbet
which you can easily prepare
and chill in your refrigerator.
Over this sherbet goes a com
bination of chilled fruit nectar,
canned fruit juice and tangy
ginger ale. Your whim or prefer
ence will determine the variety
you choose to prepare.
Some Firestone homemakers
have suggested peach, apricot or
loganberry nectar blended with
cranberry, orange, orange-grape-
fruit or pineapple juice. Any
twosome from among these will
harmonize well in a floating
Ons cup each of juice, nectar
and ginger ale makes enough
liquid for about six sundaes.
Serve them in tall glasses—two
scoops of sherbet in each with
the ginger ale mixture poured
over the top.

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Sanitation Is Best
To Fight Bacteria

Sanitation of the most precious
kind is the only effective wea

Parks. For example, if you eat
food in the raw state, scrub it
thoroughly. An added precau
tion: If food is eaten raw, see
that it is fresh.
Food cooked hours in advance
of the time it is to be eaten
should be refrigerated in the
meantime. If not this, recook it
just before eating, the plant
physician advises. He adds:

For Picnic Fun
Now that picnic time is here
again, this reminder from the
plant travel information service
will help you to more enjoyable
outings this summer:
In North Carolina national
forests there are 51 improved
free public recreation areas in
cluding roadside facilities. Along
the state’s highways there are
23 roadside parks and more than
400 roadside picnic tables—all
available to the traveling public.
To keep within the budget
these days you have to let the
rest of the world go by.
