BS and RH will find their fu
ture electric bills for service
rendered on and after July 1
reflecting the repeal of the six
per cent State Sales Tax.
“Current bills will include
the sales tax only for service

said PP&L’s Lancaster Division
vice president, Brent S. Shunk.
The removal of the sales tax

form code leaves the applica
tion of the sales tax to all other
electric service unchanged.

How To Dress Up Potatoes
You can dress up potatoes by having them wear their “jackets”
to dinner. But there are so many other ways to adorn this versatile
vegetable that you could serve potatoes every day
for months and never have the same dish twice.
As a kitchen staple, potatoes are a classic
They’re easy to store simply keep them in a
dark and cool, but not cold place. And it’s easy to
stretch them to feed more people.
Mashed potatoes are a perfect starting-off
point for your imagination. Here are some simple
ways to dress them up.
Mix crunchy peanut butter into hot mashed
potatoes just before serving.
Combine mashed potatoes with mashed tur- *
nips and top with butter. f '
Make golden potatoes by combining finely
shredded carrots and shredded Cheddar cheese to XHOMAS
mashed potatoes.
Serve seasoned mashed pota
toes over split frankfurters
Stir drained sliced canned
mushrooms into mashed pota

here, cold potato salad is a great
favorite, and lends itself to many
variations. Every homemaker
seems to have a special recipe
for it.
When you’re grilling outside,
wrap some potatoes in foil and
roast them on the coals while
your meat is cooking.

Keeping Ice Cream At Its Best
You can keep ice cream at top
quality in your home freezer
for some time. But your freezer

When you buy ice cream at the
supermarket, put the package

groceries rather than do other
Put the ice cream in your
freezer or freezer section of a
refrigerator. To prevent partial
thawing and the icy or sandy
textural changes that some
times occur in ice cream, the
temperature of your freezer must
be zero degrees or lower. If the
ice cream is soft when you take
it from the freezer, the tempera
ture isn’t cold enough. You may
need to change the setting to a
colder temperature or perhaps
your freezer needs defrosted to
maintain the proper tempera
Most quality defects of ice
cream arise from improper hand
ling. But if you store it zero de
grees or lower, you can satisfac

weks or months without flavor
or tevtural change
When you’re ready to serve
the ice cream, a warm scoop may
make dipping easier. Or perhaps
letting the ice cream “warm” up
to about 10 degrees will make it
easier to serve. But when you’re
finished serving, place the re
