The Goodness Of Lamb
Many cooks are just discovering the versa
tility of' fine-flavored lamb. They are experi
menting beyond the mint jelly and curry sauce

fruit sauce or tangy barbecue glaze, appetizers
of ground lamb in tart shells reach the most
elegant dinner parlies, and creamed lamb
cubes in patty shells appear on luncheon
menus.
Lamb is hearty for family suppers, too.
Creamed casseroles, stews, creoles, shepherd’s
pies and curries have savory, family-appealing
flavor

lamb plus the cuts to be used for each

Some people are trying to make the November 7th ballot question just that by saying,
“We iavor creating a Lancaster County Health Department but, we don’t want it under
Law 315 because the County won’t have complete and full control”.
THE THINKING VOTER WILL ASK HIMSELF THESE
QUESTIONS:
Who Says A Lancaster County
Health Department Will Be

WHO SAYS PUBLIC HEALTH IS A POLITICAL ISSUE?
1. Is it better to continue to have no local delivery of public health services or to
vote “YES” now and create a department that can be effective and sensitive to
County needs rather than statewide needs?
2. Is it better to have checks and balances between governmental units (County
and State) or to depend entirely on only one in a matter as vital to all of us as
our health?
3. When the State transfers its health powers to the County, pays half of the
County costs, but under the State law continues to be responsible to see that this
County has public health protection, isn’t it reasonable for them to have the op
portunity to approve the QUALIFICATIONS of the Medical Director and his
staff?
(The State has no authority (1) to direct or require selection of any indivi
dual (2) over the manner or amount of compensation of any employee or
(3) direct or require removal of any individual)
4. What ironclad guarantee can any government make that it will always appro
priate “adequate” funds? Oui own County couldn’t guarantee its appropriations
either because the Voteranakes the final decisions.
5. Isn’tithe proof of the pudding in the-eating? BUCKS COUNTY, after 12 years of
operating its County Health Department, says “Rather than exercising a serious
control over local programs, we have found the State Department of Health con
stantly promoting County take-over *of all State Health programs”. i
