Freeze A Little At A Time For Best Results As you prepare to freeze produce from your garden, plan to froze small amounts of food at a time. Judy Matlick, Ex- tension Agent Home Economics, recommends that you freeze no more than one- fifteenth of the capacity of your freezer at a time to avoid prolonging the freezing period. This means no more than 20 pounds of food frozen at once in a 10 cubic foot freezer, and 40 pounds of food in a 20 cubic foot freezer. Food will freeze faster in small quantities. Its quality will be better, and your freezer will not have to work as hard. lan Smith predicts Rhode- sian pact near. Alcohol Related Road Fatalities Down Slightly On State Roads CHARLESTON -- Alcohol- related highway fatalities on state roads are down slightly for the first five months of 1978 as compared to the previous year, according to figures released by Governor Rockefeller. During the first five months of 1978, 43 percent of those adults killed in auto accidents were under the influence of alcohol. The overall percentage for 1977 was 46 percent. "While a slight improvement has been noted, the results still are not good. Persons who plan to drive should think before they drink," the Governor said. Rockefeller said increased highway patrols and better enforcement of the laws are presently aimed at reducing road fatalities. "Overall, we need increased Avoodo \\; awareness by drivers, law en- forcement authorities, the courts and citizens of the state," said Rockefeller. Of the 102 adult pedestrians and drivers killed in traffic accidents during the first five months of 1978, 84 (82 percent) were subject to examination to determine the level of alcohol present in the blood at the time of the accident. Of the 84, 56 percent were not under the in- fluence of alcohol, 1 percent was in the relative state and the remaining 43 percent were considered under the influence. For the same period in 1977, of the 120 adult pedestrians and drivers killed in traffic ac- cidents, 92 (73 percent) were subject to testing. Of the 92, 49 percent were not under the in- fluence, 2 percent were in the relative state and the remaining 49 percent were considered under the influence.

MANY STYLES and COLORS ON SALE Grandparents To Be Honored September 10 For grandparents who've always wanted "their day", but never had it, your fondest fan- tasies are about to come true. A resolution, calling upon the President of the United States to proclai the first Sunday after Labor Day "National Grand- parents Day", has been passed by the Congress and forwarded to the President for his action. Senator Jennings Randolph, who sponsored the original resolution two years ago, called the action a "Ioug-delayed and deserved result." And the Senator paid special tribute to Marian McQuade, of Oak Hill, who initiated a campaign to honor gtrandparents. Randolph first introduced a resolution in the Senate during the 94th Congress. It passed the Senate, but the House failed to act. On May 16, 1977, the resolution was approved unanimously by the Senate. In the most recent house ac- tion, the vote favoring the resolution was 362 to 8. Grandparents everywhere are asking who were the eight house members who voted against "grandparents day" and wondering what their particular "hang ups" on the issue m:ght be. If proclaimed, this year's observance will fall on Sap- tember 10.
