hams are usually better quality
than the boiled. Both are high
In price.
Picnic hams are hams from the
lower part of the shoulder. They
■ell for less than ham but also
contain less edible meat of a poor
er quality. Picnics are sold re
gula and shankless.
Bostons are sold bone in or
boneless; fresh, cured or smoked.
Of all pork cuts, Bostons has the
moat lean (84%). They usually
sell for as much as ham and lins,
if not more. One pound serves
four people.
Loin roasts and chops are usu
ally sold fresh. It is one of the
■» -—~■ ■ —
most desirable cuts (67% lean,
and sells for a high price. Chops
and roast from the porterhouse
section are first; the ribs second;
the sirloin third and the should
ers last in desirability. Loin
roasts are chops serve three to
four people per pound.
Canadian bacon is heavy loin
boned and the large muscle is rol
led, cured ad smoked. It is ex
pensive but there is no waste
One pound serves 4 to 6 peo*
pie.
Spareribs and neck bones are
not cured but cooked fresh. Often
they bring a higher price than
their nutritive value justifies. One
pound serves one to two people
only.
Fat cuts of pork are bacon,
jowls, clear plate and fat back.
They are desirable for flavoring
other foods. They are cured and
smoked or salted and dried.
Sausage can be of many varie
ties depending a lot on who
makes it. It should contain 75%
ing used during the war for com
bat planes. The system makes
the airport as much a “pilot’s
paradise" by night as by day.
THINGS TO COME — House
wives can save elbow grease with
a push-button wax-spraying dis
penser which puts a luster on a
household of furniture in a few
minutes time. You simply spray
it on and wipe it off; no rubbing,
no polishing . . . Dreaming of a
white Christmas? Even without
the weather man you can insure
at least a semblance of one with
the “Frosty Fir" Christmas tree,
a snowy w'hite fire-resistant pro
duct. No artificial tree, it’s a
real fir, trimmed with white plas
i tic and rayon fibers. Chemically
treated, it also retards wilting
and needle-dropping . . . Charge
it. That’s all that necessary with
a new hearing-aid battery. It’s
said to be the first rechargeable
unit ever made that’s small en
ough for such aids. . . A newl de
veloped cupboard door comes
complete with a built-in interior
ventilating arrangement designed
to prevent warping. The ventila
tion keeps the door’s inside sec
tions dry, maintains a constant
temperature for all parts.
PLATTER CHATTER — A year
and a half long battle in the1
phonograph record field will pro- j
bably wind up along about year’s
end as a result of a recent turn
table triple player by RCA, one of
the industry’s “big three” (the
other two: Columbia and Decea).
For 18 months the industry has'
been running around in circles
trying to work out a way to end
the tug-of-war betwee Columbia’s
33 spins a minute platter and
RCA’s 45-rpm system. Now RCA
has announced it will manufac
ture a new three-speed phono
graph that wiii not only play both
33 and 45 rpm records but can
handle the fast-whirling 78-rpm
discs as well. Independent re
cord-changer companies have, of
course, been selling such three
way machines for months, but
this move seems to mean thel
Victor is yielding. The 33’s have
far outsold the 45’s. Victor **
pi els its new record player to hit
the market by early spring. i

lean and 25% fat pork. The Fe
deral law for fillers permits 3Vi%
soya, cereal and-or dry milk sol
ids to give body, adherence and
also extend the protein. Sausage
is sold in bulk or casing; is smok
ed or fresh. The casings are na
tural or artificial.
Pork liver is more tender than
beef and resembles calf liver
when cooked with bacon or on
ions. Pork liver sells for one
third the price of calf and one
half the price of beef liver. It
contains foor times as much iron
as calf liver and three times as
much iron as beef liver. One
pound serves four people.
Remember, cook pork thorough
ly at a low temperature. There
should be no pink or red tinge in
cooked pork.
Behind The Scenes
In American Business
by Reynolds Knight
NEW YORK, December 14 —
A Merry Christmas for retailers?
Most of them say “yes," if not too
emphatically. They’re hopeful
enough, but don’t want to in
dulge in wishful thinking, after
a disappointing fall season.
There’s little real gloom, however,
and the majority look for a mid
December buying spree that will
help jack up overall sales for the
year to something close to 1948
marks. Meanwhile, those who
are fretting about prospects for
the new year have little cause for
worry, according to a current Dun
and Bradstreet survey. Prospects
of 1950’s first quarter are definite
ly on the bright side, said most
business men queried in the
study. Forty five per cent of the
executives look for a sales volume
better than 1949’s first quarter;
29 per cent expect no change, and
only 26 per cent anticipate lower
volume.
PILOT’S ’PARADISE — The
king-size landing strip recently
completed at Howard Hughes’
Culver City aircraft plant in Cal
ifornia is a flyer’s dream field.
Its runway, believed to be the
world’s longest in any private
port, stretches nearly two miles
—long enough to permit a take
off, short flight and landing all in
the same direction and with the
strip “under you’’ all the way, an
important advantage in test hop
flights- To facilitate testing of
various aviation development pro
jects which Hughes has under
way for the government, the mil
lionaire flyer-industrialist has ad
apted for the field a type of light
