lots of It Is merely habit, but some
habits take a lot of pampering.
But food; well, it's an art to plan
and buy and prepare food so the
whole family, or even the single
individual, will enjoy it.
Take, for instance, thoee vege
tables that the market writer is
continually pointing out. There
are some cooks who don't seem to
realize that right now isn't one
whit too early to buy all kinds of
fresh vegetables with which to
help furnish the table. Sure, plen
ty of them, even If they don't
come from right arounrfSalem.
It'll be the local truck garden
er's outing in a few weeks now,
but meantime, garden centers
from the north and south are do
ing their best to see we folks don't
go vegetable hungry.
Hereinafter Is partially describ

New potatoes and new peas are
still recent enough to be a novelty
to many household tables; in fact,
there must be lots of places where
they have not even been taated
let alone eaten this spring. -But
they are both here in Salem
stores, and the peas, particularly,
are getting better every time a
new shipment arrives from the
California fields. That's not dis
paraging the new spuds; they've
been good from the start, as new
The Irish kings . come two
pounds for '25 cents, and there
abouts now, in striking contrast
to the low price of the old crop.
New peas, too, are commanding a
good price but not too high con
sidering their newness to the mar
ket. How does rhubarb pie, or even
Just good old "pie plant" sauce,
sound? If you nave an aversion
to things hot-housey, as has been
the rhubarb up until a few days
ago, forget it. For now, at eev
eral stores, rhubarb grown out
doors in California may be pur
chased, two pounds for a quarter.

You'll notice, that in contrast

looks small, to say the least. But
don't let that keep you from buy

That's only what one local mer
chant has secured direct from the
fields at Roseburg to offer to the
trade this week. You never saw
cuch solid, perfect heads, either.
The price Is down, too, and even
such splendid heads as these we
say only cost 15 cents each. May
be you can beat that, by looking
about a little while you're making
that Friday or Saturday shopping
tour. We noticed some heads,
though not eo good looking and
to which there would be a little
'waste, for two for 15 cents.
Cabbage, too, is coming in in
better shape all the time, the
heads that will be offered this
week end being small but pretty
solid in the main. This is the new
crop from California; and being
new, it's bound to be the nicest
crisp cabbage you've used for
New carrots, grown in Califor
nia, have been! offered by grocers
for several days. They're those
bunches that look so pale and
small alongside the big orange
colored ones that have dominated
for so many weeka now. The
winter crop is still In fine shape
too, but some buyers just natur
ally prefer those the newest.
The new spring carrots sell three
pounds for 25 cents, considerably
more than the old ones
pounds for 15 cents.
Parsnips, beets, rutabagas and
turnips are all still available In
goodly number and in fine condi
tion, and prices, in the main, at
at four and the remainder comes from
California, shipped in Ice to reach
here in good condition. The spin

Salem is as fresh and fine as any

Green Is White
At six o'clock last evening it
was discovered that the paper
we' had for our Green Section
was white. According to oar
records there should have been
plenty of green paper In the
warehouse to run off today's
issue, but a careful check
proved that the rolls thought
to bo green were white so the
Green Section is white today.
We will have more green paper
here for next week's issue.
Watch for The GREEN.
Once more the readers of
the Green Section, who patron
ize the advertisers will be
privileged to enjoy two mati

question will probably be, "And
what will be the shows?"
The first matinee will be
held Saturday afternoon with
a showing of the picture "Body
and Soul" featuring Lionel
Barrymore and Aileen Prlngle.
This la said to be one of the
most dramatic pictures ever
placed on the screen. Thrill

picture as more than a hundred
