Florida Orange Juice Travels
Whether the lunchbox is bound for school, factory or office, It’s
a good idea to include Florida orange jaice. Working men and
women ta well as children need the energy and vitamin C the
tasty juice provides. Put enough in the thermos container for a
mid-morning pickup as well as a lunchtime treat.
From every five pounds of Florida juice oranges you'll get at
least one quart of flavorful juice, thanks to their thin skins. Protect
your family’s health by serving orange juice daily.

Who Uses Lean Beef
Now is the time of lean beef, the grass-fed, more economical beef
that comes right from the range. Lean beef makes wonderful dishes
when braised or simmered. Meat Pie is typical of this culinary
school. The longer cooking characteristic of beef pie brings out all
the rich flavor and juiciness of the lean beef. And remember, it
contains the same high quality complete protein, B vitamins and
essential minerals as costlier cuts,
114 pounds lean beef (boned 2 tablespoons chopped celery
chuck, round, flank or rump) leaves
2 teaspoons salt 2 sprigs parsley
14 teaspoon pepper 12 small white onions, peeled
3 tablespoons flour 3 medium carrots, scraped
1 tablespoon bacon drippings and quartered
3 cups water ‘Biscuit topping
Have beef cut in 1-inch pieces. Blend together 1 teaspoon of the
salt, pepper and flour; roll pieces of meat in blended mixture.
Brown meat in bacon drippings. Add water, chopped celery, parsley

2 hours until meat is almost tender. Add onions and carrots. Cover
and cook until vegetables are tender, altout 20 minutes. To thicken
mixture; blend 1 tablespoon flour with 14 cup cold water. Add a
small amount of the hot liquid, then quickly stir into the meat
mixture. Turn into casserole. Cover with biscuit topping.
YIELD: 6 servings.
114 cups sifted all purpose flour 14 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder 4 tablespoons lard
14 cup milk
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into bowl. Cut in lard until
well mixed. Add milk, stirring quickly until a soft bnll is formed.
Turn on a lightly floured board and knead gently to shape into
smooth ball; roll lightly to 14 inch thickness and cut with star

Trainer Shows Students How to Avert Car Crashes
Whether an impending highway
crash turns into another disaster or
a near miss may depend on a driver's
behind-the-wheel prowess the instant
after the emergency develops.
In this split-second interval, many
drivers act instinctively—and often
what they do is wrong. Some panic,
let go of the wheel. Still others
freeze, do nothing.
While thousands of youths are
taught to drive in the nation’s high
schools, they get precious little in
struction in meeting highway emer
Limited surveys of driver educa
tion programs show that trained
drivers have far fewer accidents than
those with no training. Good as this
record is, many safety educators—
like Dr. Herbert I. Stack of the Cen
ter for Safety Education at New
York University—believe it would
be even better if drivers were taught
what to do in highway emergencies.
Staging crash situations with real
cars to give student drivers practice
in meeting emergencies on the high
way would give any driver educa
tion instructor nightmares. Obvi
ously, such a program was out of
Now, however, many student driv
ers are receiving this vital training,
thanks to a revolutionary classroom
training device called the /Etna
Drivotraincr, which is being used
in an increasing number of high
schools throughout the country.
No Risk In Drivotrainer
But with the Drivotrainer, special
movies that show a driver’s eye
view of the road ahead bring the
highways into the classroom where
beginning drivers—without risk to
themselves or others—can learn how
to avert a crash.
In the Drivotrainer, which was
developed by the Aetna Casualty and
Surety Company, students take their
hchind-the-whcel training in small
model cars which they learn to
'drive'* on highways shown on a

huge movie screen the same as they
would appear through the windshield
of a real car.
While the Drivotrainer course cov
ers everything from basic skills like
steering and shifting to more com
plex techniques like parallel parking
and making U and Y turns, one of
the 19 special training films is de
voted wholly to emergency training.
In this part of the course, students
experience a nerve-tingling series of
potential accident situations on the
Drivotrainer's movie highways and
are drilled in the behind the-wheel
maneuvers that will avoid a crash.
By doing what cannot be done
with conventional training methods,
the Drivotrainer will help future
motorists to do spontaneously the
thing that will avert an accident
when they’re on real highways.
First used in the New York City
schools, the Drivotrainer has since
been introduced in Los Angeles. Oak
