Shrimp and rice ate at the heart of it. Shrimp, of course, are all lean and low-calorie (about 150 to the 4VV-ounce can), but they contribute the high quality protein needed to hold back hunger between meals. In modett quantities, rice adds only its wallop of fuel and energy. As the saying goes, it is not the starch that fattens but what is spooned over it. And a trick way of cooking the rice give* the whole salad a very satisfying but deceptively rich flavor. This is a pretty salad—all shrimp-pink and greens—with a slightly Oriental look, particu larly when vegetables are cut on the slant. It servet four but for one person single servings may be spaced by adding rice and fresh ingredients to the shrimp mixture as needed.

Enchanting, bell-shaped clusters of florets wave in the gentle breeze and spread the sweet-scented es sence of Spring while also in fusing a garden with a bright mantle of color. Unfolding along stalks 10 to 18 inches high, hyacinths are truly a spell-bound combina tion of delicate charm and stunning . beauty. They are available in all their traditional shades of blue ahd in delicate pink, pure white and rich purple. In addition, Dutch hybridizers have perfected vivid varieties in orange, soft yellow and deep crimson. Hyacinths look perfectly na tural in small clusters of five or six and they can be used just as well to achievf symmetrical patterns in formal gardens. Curving drifts of Hyacinths winding along stone walls, picket fences or hedges create wondrous effects as do bunch es at the base of a shrub border, beside entrances and bordering driveways. They are also remarkable for their capacity to blend with other flowers in the garden, especially Species Tulips, mini ature daffodils and minor bulbs such as Grape Hyacinth (Mus cari), Scilla and Crocus. They are also excellent planted in borders with Pansies, Violas and Porget-Me-Nots. Patterns and color combina tions possible with hyacinths are limited only by the imagi nation. But remember that the simpler the grouping the more effective it will be. For instance, red, blue or purple hyacinths will contrast beautifully with clumps of cream-colored Daffodils. White varieties strikingly set off a bed of early red tulips. For a stun ning floral interplanting, hya cinths can be blended with low-growing Spedea Tulips which are remarkable for their large, brilliant bloasoms. Hya cinths are truly adaptable. In fact, it's a good idea to plant them around light-leafed treea, i wmiu WmA I JF V jd ifflp jo M-' jm PSMU -m Have shrimp and beans chilled in the can. Drain both, reserving the bean liquid.

As with all Dutch bulbs, hyacinths should be planted in the Fall, in well-drained soil, six inches deep and six inches apart, before the first hard freese.

The msgic spell of the hya cinth goes back to ancient times. The psrent of the pre sent hyacinth grew wild in a number of sreas of the Eastern Mediterrsnesn and was not brought into Hollsnd until 1570. Not long sfter, it became part of the Dutch bulb craze of the seventeenth century, along with the Tulip. From about 50 varieties of fered for sale in the early part of the eighteenth century, the number rose to almost 2,000 in a short period of time. By the end of the century, the hya cinth had become the flower of faahion, championed by the style-setter of the period, Ma dame de Pompadour of the French court. And today still, Mother Na ture's magic wand goes right on , with its enchanting work. QUESTIONS ANSWERS Q - I plan to enter collage under the Q. L 810, and carry 16 semester hours.

Then in Spring it grows up, just like Mommy said. I wonder if a bee will ever come a10ng..." Bulb* are so simple to plant they're almost literally child'* play. Planting crocus, tulips and daffodils is simple work, and your child can be your garden partner. The joy your child gets from gardening will become a delightful memory you can share with him. The very process of bulb gardening, the long period of germination, the structure of the bulb, all are educational fodder in teaching children about life processes. And, when your child plants tulips, for instance, he will become interested in the history of the tulip, and their ihternational aspects, too. Caring for a garden is a character-builder, for your child will learn tenderness and respect for growing things. He will leam patience in watching them grow, thoughtfulness in caring for his own plants ... even hi* capacities for love will increase as he loves his garden and watches over it. And he will be developing a hobby he can enjoy all through his life, for gardening paradoxically ap peals to the very old as well as to the very young.

Buy him small-sized tools, made especially for children. Gay little watering cans with fanciful motifs on them, minia ture wheelbarrows, tiny rakes and hoae ... perhaps, too, a gardening apron with wonder ful pockets for bulbs (and big enough for stones and sticks, too, of course). 3.

You are giving him a fine new way of life. I —Gordea Tine !■ North Coroliio — Mrs. Dollle Strickland wrltea from Route 1, Erwln, N. C.: "What causes pecans to fall from the trees at this aeas on of the year? I have two large trees In my yard and all of the pecans are falling off. They turn dark before they fall and I haven't had any to mature In several years." From Mrs. Strickland's description, I am sure that the premature dropping of the nuts ia caused by scab - a fungus disease which causes mllliona of dollars in losses eadh year. I expect, too, that mildew, another fungus, Is a contributing cause. On the nuts, leaves and shoots, the fungus causes pre mature defoliation and mum mified nuts. Severely infected nuts may drop, prematurely, or they may remain attached to the shoots for an Indefinite period of time. Once the infection is estab lished It persists and the only method of control Is to adopt a spray schedule which re quires expensive equipment, and is only practical for use in large commercial pecan groves. A young fellow came by my office this morning who had been In the service. Someone had asked him about the difference between a Mus cadine grape and a Scupper- him to VA benefits for which he is \ eligible.
