7" Opinions The myth of neutrality ality is a nice sounding phrase which is often an anti-God viewpoint when it comes of the role of religion in politics. Even Such a viewpoint ha been shown to be unten- still widely held and believed. is something valued as the position of such as the American Civil Liber- and the American Bar Association.

Donald Wildman of the National Federation of Decency for "a lifetime of disservice" to the Bill of Rights. The American Bar Asssociation recently went on record supporting the continued legalization of abor- tion on demand and even went further supporting Free- dom of Choice Act (FOCA). The bill is touted as simply a codification of Roe vs. Wade but in reality is much more. It would effectively restrain the Congress and state legislatures from imposing any meaningful restrictions on abortion including parental and spousal consent and waiting periods. The organization is a major factor in the derailing of Judge Bork's nomina- tion as a Supereme Court justice and was a behind the scenes player in the drama which attempted to scuttle the nomination of Judge Thomas. Both organizations would have us believe they are strong supporters of "The American Way" and support the idea of neutrality in moral issues. Once more neu- trality is shown to be nothing more than a buzz word which really means let's get rid of the God-honoring morality upon which this nation was built.

If the frost holds off a few more days, it appears we will have a good crop of sweet potatoes. Because they are so late, I suspect we will let them grow until frost with the hope we can cut the tops off before sunrise. I understand cutting off the tops be fore daybreak will keep the frost created poison from spreading to the desirable pans of the plants. With more than 100 plants, we will have to be fast workers. I was a skeptic when Grandfather talked about his summer and winter blood, but as I grow older, I am coming to understand what he meant. With my summer blood, if the bedroom temperature reaches 76 degrees, I want a fan. At 78 degrees, I absolutely must havea fan. With the arrival of fall, i believe I have had a blood transfu- sion. At 74 degrees, I am most c.c fortable with a light cover. At 73 degrees, I want a heavier cover. It was 70 degrees in the bedroom Tuesday morning and I wanted lots of cover. At 69 degrees it will be next to freezing and I want a pile of blankets. At 68 degrees, I stop adding blankels and turn on the electric blankeL If it takes me that many blankets to keep warm inside a heated house, I never want to experience a winter night in a teepee. i !

By Phyllis Schoenholz With the cool temperatures it is time to begin enjoying home- made soups and stews, whether we make them ourselves, or enjoy the products of local churches or organizations at their soup suppers. At home or away we need to properly cool down those hatches of soup or stews. Improper cooling and storing large quantities of foods is the number one factor for causing foodborne illness in the United States according to a Consumer Food Safety Update. The following table gives you an idea howlong it would take to properly cool down a 16-inch pot of beef stew from 140 de- grees to below 45 degrees in the refrigerator. Stew Depth: 3 inches, time to reach 45 degrees, 2 hours; 4 inches, 3.6 hours; 5 inches, 5 hours; 7 inches, II hours; 10 inches, 22.5 hours. The thicker the consistency of the food and the larger the size of the container, the longer it will take to cool down. When storing foods for your family or orgamzation it is a good idea to divide it into smaller containers and cool immediately. New potato can take the heat By Doris Stanley The hot, dreaded dog days of summer aren't a threat to the new- est potato on the potato dhipping scene, It's called CoastayChip. Heat stress canreduce the qual- ity of Atlantic, the "most popelar variety now used for potato chips in the Northeast," says Kathleen G. Haynes, aU.S. Department of Agriculture plant geneticist. Sun- baked summer days cause plant tissue in the potato to die and turn brown. As a result, "brown splotches can appear on the chips," she explains. But, Costal Chip survivesthe heat. So, it makes crisp, light- colored potato chips and lots of them, says Haynes. "We named this new variety Coastal Chip because of its spe- cial ability to adapt to the heat stress areas of the East Coast," says Haynes of USDA's Agricul- tural Research Service. "We're hoping this new po- tato will fill the market gap that can occur when growers have problems with Atlantic,*' she said. Another advantage of the new potato is it retains its chipping quality longer than Atlantic after being harvested. Coastal Chip yields about the same as Atlantic. Haynes, located at the ARS VegetableLaboratory, Beltsville, Md., says the new potato is toler- ant to Verticillium wilt and re- sists potato virus A and race A of the golden nematode. All are threats to farmers' potato crops. i Cathonc Church Services St. Joseph's Church Superior. Neb. Fath Frank MachovN Rectory Phone 402-879-3735 m- 00he'ul Chu00+ h om M  :..
