Mar) l.ovejo)and Diane I|equette Please Dad with a thrifty money- saving beef dish In these inflationary times, money-saving tips are always helpful, especially when plan- ning for a special occas- ion like Father's Day. One inexpensive and sure to please Dad idea is a beef barbecue. Cooking outdoors can be an excellent way to stretch th~ food bud- get. Combined with a few money-saving tips from the Beef Industry Council of the Meat Board, a backyard cookout can be the ideal way to show Dad you care-- and save a dollar or two at the same time. Planning your menu before you shop. Begin by making your meat choice from advertised beef specials and then build the rest of your menu. Once the menu is complete, then make a shopping list. When selecting a beef cut, think "cost pen" ser- ving," The amounts of +fat and bone a cut con- tains help dclcrmine the number of 3 to 3 V2 oz. servings of cooked beef it will provide. Travelers: Don't bug us Bullc County Agricultural ('orn- missioner Joe E. Bandy said he is joining his fellow commissioners throughou! California in urging all travelers "Don't Bug Us" while oil vacal ion. June has bccn declared "Don't Bug Us" mouth by the California I)cparlmcnl of t-god and Agricul- ture because it is tile traditional month of travel or planilirlg fol trips, Bandy said. Everybody likcs to bring back' souvenirs, bul they should bc careful they dQ IiOt bring back ne~('~r" pests at tile same lime, 13andy said. This is very easy to do, since some~ pests are notorious hitchhikers'and+ seem to climb aboard just about'+ anything heading our way. Bandy pointed OUl Gypsy Moth, l)ulch Elm l)iscase, Oriental Fruit t:ly, Japanese Bcetlc, and Mediter- ranean Fruit Fly are among tile xnosl destructive pests to come to California recently as hitchhikers. l.efl Oil their own, these pests could cause a greal deal of damage in most California cities and some arc capable of wiping o(u large agricultural areas, Bandy sail. California's sub-tropical en- vironment is ideal for these pests, which invariably arrive here and find it free of its nalttral enemies, which hold populalious in check in other areas, according to Bandy. Hitchhiking pests generally land in the cities first and most of tile lime lhey find plenly of food to sustain lhenl. +; Bandy said the commissioners and the Califlmfia Department c,f Food and Agricuhure are deter- mined to keep Ihe state free from new pests and are appealing to,the vacationing public to helFi. This is the most dangerous lime of lhe year whex mosl of our peg- pie take their vacations, Bandy said. Those who travel out of stall" arc utged to lake extreme care in b,'inging back souvenirs. + Bandy lisled Ihese five general rules for people to fl~llow: --Avoid transporting any plan!~ or animals from another area lalthough most house planls mov- ed from one home 1o another, and nol for connnercial sale, a,e pcr- mitred entry]. --Avoid transporling most fiuils, including citrus and cherries into Ihe state, as well as castern apples and peaches. --Because of Ilie danger of Ir;.Itls- v porting l)utch Elm disease and oak wilt disease into California, avoid moving ehn and oak wood. --Watch oul for outdoor furni- ture and other outdoor parapher- nalia because they may carry egg,, of the gypsy moth.

Music Circus opens Mond in Sacto with '4 Girls 4' The opening show of the 30th anniversary season of the Sacra- mento Music Circus is the highly praised "4 Girls 4," starring Rosemary Clooney, Rose Marie, Helen O'Connel, and Margaret Whiting. These four blondes have met with applauding reviews pro- viding a delightful evening of musical memories. Based on nos- talgia but keeping its feet firmly planted in the present, it has been reviewed as "Nostalgia with oomph?" On September 6th, 1977 the Beverly Hills Donhenly Plaza Theater witnessed a happening. Four girls got up and sang. That doesn't Sound particularly earth- shattering with some of the things that take place today in the enter- tainment field, like Dino D'e Laurentis blowing up the Bistro in a towering inferno amongst a hur- ricane with a large ape serving martinis, all for fun. But a happen- ing it was. Because these were four very special girls with four very unique gifts" exploding on ,stage with the big band sound of Frankie Ortega. The evening generated such excitement and warmth that the show was soon moved to the H0ntington Hartford 'Theater, where singularly and together they mesmerized sell-out audiences for Plants summer color As summer nears and the burst of spring bloom has faded, it is evi- dent that your garden needs a color transfusion. The logical answer should come to you in the form of bedding plants - those workhorses of the garden. Set them out now and they will be ready to carry the burden of color in a few short weeks. Some will even start show- ins their blooms almost from the start. May is still a good month to plant marigolds - both the dwarf and giants. Use the dwarfs to edge a walk, the taller ones to back a border. Zinnias should be planted in a sunny bed - the sunnier the better. Here is oneannual that most gardeners prefer in mixed colors and y,u will probably agree. The California Association of Nursery- men also suggests: Asters in rows for cutting or in beds for display; petunias in beds of all one or mixed colors or in planter boxes, hanging baskets and good old clay pots where their trailing habits can be used to ad- vantage; annual phlox with their showy flower clusters that are bright and pastel in color and the dwarf phlox is excellent used as an edging; snapdragons and stocks planted in beds of a single color or mixed are very inviting. Before transplanting any of these beauties from the nursery flats to }'our garden, take time to prepare the soil you are to plant them in. Turn the soil to a depth of at least 12 inches andwork in some compost and fertilizer. Then water the bed thoroughly so that the young plants won't go into dry soil.. After planting care should in- clude cultivating to keep weeds down [a good mulching will help with this problem], frequent water- ins [nluiching will also "help cola- serve moisture in the soil], and feed your plants every month or six weeks. If the plants need staking, take care of tiffs need too. Lastly, you will be blooms ahead if, when the plants are six to eight inches high, you pinch out the terminal bud growth and force side bran- thing with its subsequent increase in bloom. When the flowers come, keep them picked before they go to seed, a'nd you will have a summer festival of color for sure.

" York Magazine," "Newsweek," and "People," the major talk shows all sing praises to these singers now everybody wants to the fun from New York to With each of the girls some of what they do special segments just for them, Rosemary Clooney doing "1 derly" and others that everyone, inc.luding the unflappable Bing Crosby, "C'mon to her house." Marie takes the stage and comedy and song that has her the popular personality been over the years. Helen nel singing "Tangerine" as "Green Eyes" makes the fall in love with this pretty over again. Margaret sends the crowds "That Old Magic" and "My Ideal" "Guihy," the last two cours, e were hits for father, Richard Whiting.
