Five Great Tragedies
A man struck a match to see if a
gasoline tank was empty. It wasn't.
A man speeded up to see if he
could beat the train to the crossing.
Another petted a strange dog to
see if it would bite. It did!
Another touched a transmission
wire to see if it was charged. It was!
Finally, a man cut his Sunday
School and Worship services to see
if he could make more money. He
did...and lost his soul and his
Friends, you are the loser when
you miss corporate, regular Wor-

HOW TO GET
THE MOST OCT OF
Don't buy a bigger unit than you
need. One cubic foot will hold 35-40
pounds of meat or 40 pint cartons.
Put the same types of food in the
same section of the freezer so they
will be easier to locate.
2 Buy a model with a light that warns
of a blown fuse or power failure. If
• the power goes off, avoid opening
the door as much as possible.
3 A few pieces of charcoal in the
freezer will absorb unpleasant
• odors and keep the interior smell-
ing sweet and fresh.
6 Several vegetables such as lettuce,
celery, cucumbers, carrots and
• tomatoes lose crispness when
frozen. Unless these are to be cooked, it's
best not to freeze them.
Freeze foods in small packages
because the smaller they are the
§ faster they will freeze and thaw.
Use freezer to capacity. A well-filled
unit operates more efficiently. Pill
milk cartons with water to take up
space not needed for vegetables or meat.
