drama about the Salem witch trials in 17th
century Massachusetts, will be presented

Director Hal Floyd said the play was
originally written as a socially relevant
commentary on the McCarthy communist
"witch hunts" of the early 1950s. "It has,
however, withstood the test of time, so "
that even without its immediate social rel
evance it remains one of Miller's finest
dramatic plays," Floyd said.
The events dipictcd in The Crucible are
based on actual fact and real people who

With the Holiday Season just around the
corner you may want to put a slow or
crockery cooker on the gift list for yourself
or someone else. Slow cooking appliances
are available in sizes suitable for two to
three people or a large family.
Slow cooking appliances are based on
methods of low temperatures and fairly
long cooking time. This allows an entire
meal's ingredients to be placed in the slow
cooker in the morning, cook all day, and
be finished by dinner time. Temperatures
are high enough to prevent bacterial
A slow cooker saves preparation time
since food cooks without a need for care
ful watching. Money. can be saved since less
tender (generally less expensive) cuts of
meat can be used.
The cooking liquid preserves and flavor,
which are usually lost when cooking liquids
from vegetables are discarded.
Many cookers have heating coils on the
sides to insure even heating of foods and
prevent scorching on the bottom. Cookers
must be filled at least one-half full so the
coils can heat the food to proper temer
ature. Lifting the cooker's lid lowers the
temperature and lengthens cooking time.
Most slow cookers include a cook book
describing particular appliance features,
suggested cooking time and recipes.
As well as being a time and money
saver, the slow cooker can be used for serv
ing, hot lunch, soups, cheese fondues and
other holiday party foods.
This recipe is for beef roast prepared in
a slow cooker. These directions are for a
pot with three temperature settings;
modify cooking times as the directions for
your appliance indicate. Substitute other
vegetables as desired and experiment with
amounts of flavoring. Long cooking
periods strengthen flavors of some spices
and herbs. Alter the recipe's size according
the slow-cooking device's size.
