C.) epicure who Is willing to THE! - etartllngly new trails and then, can have a won-- . derful time on a gastronomic trip around the world. Dining In the homes of fcngland and Western Europe, the American attend-ing a feast would find the chief dish a reminder of home. Turkey, duck or goose makes the most popular roast In England, while plum , pudding this time with a generously flavored brandy sauce usually tops off ''the meal during cool seasons. ' I ' ' In France aud Spain our American explorer of the world's tables would again encounter the turkey but there he would . find the capon and the pheasant sharing Its popularity. Meth-ods ot preparation and side dishes, however, would tell him tAmtstakably that he was getting..farther afield." Truffles, chestnuts and olives are Im-portant Ingredients of the dressing ot fowls In these Latin countries. In France snails might be numbered among the viands that supplement the piece de resistance; and In Spain the meal, 'starting, say, with almond soup, would be sure to Include among the secondary dishes . a aopa, rice cooked In olive oil, with tomatoes and other vegetables and "perhaps bits of meat ; T " " ", ".' In northern ".Africa, whatever the date of the feast. It would be sure to have as Its central dish cous-cou- This consists of wheat prepared like fine grains of rice, steamed with lamb or mutton, and vegetables If the lat-ter are obtainable. It Is served In a large, almost hemispherical, basket-dis-h so closely woven that It holds water. About this container the diners sit, taking their food with their fin-gers. Olives, dates, and flgs help to complete the, meal j and on occasion there may be a dish of ' locusts "grasshoppers" prepared with wheat The legs, wings and heads are re-moved before the creature are cooked. r Among the Zulus of southern Africa whole oxen or bullocks are "roasted at feast time; and In central Africa the feast of feasts la roasted ele-phant's foot '''. .' - i V.; In Persia' as , throughout" all the Near and Central East mutton holds first place. There the accepted epi-curean trick Is to cook the meat In pomegranate juice. Rice Is cooked In grease, and the, two' combined form the famous plluu. With the pilau Is served the thin, crisp, t paperlike bread of Persia--, , - ' Raw Meat In Tibet , , If one's culinary Investigations ex-tend to backward Tibet he finds a strange combination of a barbarism'' which shows Itself In the ealjng of raw meat the ."higher" and "gamier'' the' bolter and an Ingenuity that hns holds an Important place on the menu. Seaweed, cooked In oil and aerved with allces of, red pepper; and klra-she-a kind of sauerkraut ere fa-vorite side dishes. The guests eat their portions from little Individual tables. '.. i I;.-Ho- They Eat In Japan, In Japan, too, guests at feasts eat from low, small, separate tables, their dishes being served usually, In the kitchen. An exceptional feast Is like-ly to be marked by the appearance of the piece de resistance usually fish whole before the guests. - A favorite food for this sort of treatment is a big baked red snapper. It Is placed on a table of It own in the center of a circle of the guest table, and portion are served froin It by a sery ant 'I' ',. ..'.. ' ... t , , The little tables t. et ., a Japanese feast are packed with a varied array of individual dishes. The guest prob-ably will find, clear chicken soup,-th-e Inevitable covered dish of rice, a slab Of raw fish, roast bird, shrimp frit-ters, fruit and various pickled greens. He may find, too, the most character-istic of all Japanese edibles, pickled chrysanthemum petals. For dessert be will have rice cakes and sweetened bean paste, a stiff, jelly-lik- e substance, not unlike Turkish paste. At Japanese Inn the traveler Is told that "Bombay duck" can be bad at a reasonable price. The hungry customer visions a, fat fowl but the waiter brings in pieces of smoked fish about two inches long and as thick as a dime. The menu also Includes pickled seaweed, seaweed jelly, and chutney which resembles pickled cit-ron, but Is almost as hot as Mexican chile. More raw than cooked fish Is eaten by Japanese. Haw baby octo-puses are particularly popular. "Jani anese Llmburger" Is not a cheese but a Japanese pickled dalkon, or long, white- - rndlsh. Traveling still farther eastward on his circumnavigation of the food world, our explorer would still have to pnss through the Pacific Islands before completing ,. his journey. Ta-hiti may be taken as typical of thl. region. There . preparation for a feast means klll'np the fatted pig. The animal Is usual! roasted whole with yams and native jjlantalns. Coco-.n-sauce and coconut milk complete the feost, which Is served on a, huge banana leaf spread on the floor. The guests squat about this green "board" eating with their fingers, ; Mexico Relies on Corn. . When Mexico Is reached, the trav-eler finds that corn or maize Is the staff of life. But to the American used to his substantial and slznble lonf it Is likely to appear a some-what frnll prop. Most of the Mexican corn Is not milled Into meal or flour. It Is, laboriously crushed with small stone rollers by hand. In millions of evolved: concentrated emergency ra tlous. A Tibetan, feast might consist of yak meat, strong tea mixed with rancid butter, and parched barley meal moistened with the greasy tea. Kvaporated and dried yak's milk soaked In tea would constitute the Tibetan "dessert course." In India no Important repast would be complete without quantities of rice and curry. It Is In Java, however, tfiat rice is raised to Its. highest status as a food. If he who goes exploring among the foods of the world is a connoisseur he may well pause In Java, devoting days and weeks to ex-ploring the variations the nuances, one might almost say of that Dutch-Java-food . masterpiece, .'the rijst ; tafel (rice table). . - RJce Is boiled to flaky ' whiteness and spread evenly on platters, each of which is to serve as an Individual dish. Fut this rice, good as It Is In Itself, and later because of Its bor-rowed savors. Is as yet only the foun-dation of the dish, the "table" as the Dutch have IU On It are placed lit-tle heaps of choice tid bits limited In variety only by the genius and Imag-ination of the chef and his master's' pocket book. '.',-..- I . Fenstlng Is something of an Insti-tution among, well-to-d- o Koreans. Once or twice a year the wealthy rice landlords go to. Seoul, the capital, and invite small armies of friends and ac-quaintances to dine with them that their prestige may be heightened In the eyes of their world. Half a dozen or more meats may be served at such a feast beef, mutton, venison, fowls, fish and oysters. Rice, of course. kitchens end dooryards. The crushed grain Is then moistened Into a stiff paste and cooked on a griddle Into what the average visitor from north of ' the Ulo Grande would term a "tough, flabby pancake." These are tortillas, the most generally used ar-ticles of food In Mexico. They are cooked In the home. In restaurants, over brawlers In the market place, ot taken cold by laborers In their lunch packets. Nor are they unknown on the tables of the prosperous. Wher-ever food appears In Mexico the tor-tilla stands well to the fore. Not only does the tortilla look un-appetizing to the outsider; It is sure to prove, unappetizing If he follows his first Impulse and treats It like a pancake, for It Is tough and rather tasteless. But. treated as bread, the tortilla will moke a much better Im-pression. The proper trick Is to" roll It tightly so that It will be manage-able and retain Its heat. It then be-comes a brend stick whose splraled end will melt a bit of butter and fur-- , nlsh a really delectable bite. , Corn contributes to another Impor-tant Mexican dish, the tnmale. The raw corn paste. Is flattened out as though tortillas were to be made. On the paste is spread a thin layer ot minced meat and pepper pods. The two layers are then folded np so that the meat and pepper forms .an Inner core with a sort of capsule of corn paste about It Each piece Is then wrapped in a corn shuck made pliable by soaking In water. Numbers ? of these are placed In a tin vessel and cooked by steam, then served plplnf hot both with fire and pepper. n n MOTOR QUIZ Uuw Mauy Clin You Answer? Q.

' WINTER CAR CARE ROUTINEOUTLINED Autos in Storage and in Service Need Attention. To assure automobile owners of maximum automobile comfort and ettl-- r ciency during the coming cold months service experts have prepared a list of suggestions which cover the essential points of car preparation. Where a motor car Is not to be used during the winter, the experts advise storing It In a dry, evenly heated and not too light place. The car should be waahed and dried, all oil and water drained off, wheels Jacked up to lift weight from tires, the tires partly de-flated, and unpalnted metal parts coated with heavy oil or vaseline to prevent rust or corrosion. Oil Should be Added. To prevent rusting of rings and cylinder walls the spark plutcs should bo removed and one gill of engine oil poured Into each cylinder. Then dis-tribute the oil by turning the engine over a number of times and replace the plugs.. Where It Is Intended to keep the car In commission changes In operating conditions call for attention to certain Important details. It Is Important that cars be In good operating condi-tion to overcome the rigors Imposed ' by cold weather. Whenever possible owners are urged to use the facilities of service stations. For those who prefer to condition their own cars these suggestions should be followed: Remove all accumulated sludge from the oil pan and refill with oil of good quality, frequent oil changes during the winter, with proper adjust-ment of the ernnkense ventilator, will safeguard oil circulation. Lubricate the chassis completely. Change oil In the transmission and differential. In-spect and clean the generator and re-place any worn parts. ' Check the bat-tery and recharge the electrical sys-tem if necessary. Clean Starting Motor. Remove and clean the starting mo-tor and replace worn parts Clean connecting cable terminals of elec-trical system and grease those at the battery, generator, starting motor and starting switch. Clenn and adjust distributor and spark plug points. In-spect cables and replace If necessary. Reset timing. Clean gasoline and vacuum tanks, gas lines and carburetor. Adjust car-buretor to proper winter mixture. Tighten water hose connections or replace worn hose If necessary. Pour In antl-freez- e mixture. If alcohol Is used check specific gravity weekly to prevent freezing of the mixture. Align wheels to prevent tire wear. Tighten body bolts and spring clips.

However, when It. la all said and done, ; these digestive excursions , merely prove"- - the amazing flexibility of the human system to food adjust-ment And while from a nws stand ' point such studies are Interesting, they are likely to result In more harm than good. , The reason for this Is thnt there are so many fanatically minded people who. are eager to trj anything new If It relates to the food question and particularly It It Is con nected wllh the reducing Iden.

Well, the answer to all these questions Is emphatically, yea But In spite of It the outstanding and disturbing fact remains that for the great uumtier of citizens who have attained fifty years. Increased longev Ity has no application whatsoever. Resting In a sense of false security, hundreds of thousands of, adults who have reached the onehnlf century turn In life are dying at the aame rate of years ago, and sad to say are In creaslngly dying. This Is happening because they are confident tluiw the modern conditions of life have auto-matically added two decades to fhelr expectancy and consequently do little to help themselves. They have an Idea that "fleorge," In the form ot tiealth departments and regulations, had made life Just that much safer and longer for them. A great Idea but a totally erroneous one.

Annual Automobile Cost Is Estimated at $418 An average of $203 was spent by each motorist In the United States during 1028 In the operation and maintenance of his car, according to figures compiled by the American Mo-torists association. Of this sum $101, or 84 per cent wns exended for fuel and lubricants, this being the largest item In the motorist's annual opera tion and maintenance bill. ' - The $2!)8 figure does not take Into account depreciation. The average life of a passenger ' automobile, ac-cording to computation" of the federal government Is approximately seven years. During 1028 the average retail price of passenger cars In the United States whs $875, which, bused on a seven.vear life expectancy, would mean an average depreciation of $125 per year. From this figure, plus the average maintenance of $293, It will be seen that the general overage cost of oper-ation, plus depreciation, was $418 per year, or approximately $1.14 per day. The comparable figure for 1027 show that the average cost of operation, plus depreciation, was $305 for that year, or $1 per day- - $ AUTO FACTS eeeoeeeeee'eee More than 87 per cent of the farm-ers in Garfield county, Okla own pas-senger automobiles. . a Many Paris policemen are linguists, but the American traffic cop can say enough In one language.
