CLAUS TO THIEVES
This is the month to spread
holiday cheer and good will to
man. But don’t let the bustle and
the joy of Christmas lull you into
thinking that thieves are on
An unlocked car full of packages
on the seats of floor, for example,
is an open invitation to roving
thieves. I would like to offer these
suggestions to help insure that
your gifts will fall into the hands of
the people you choose for them:
—Always lock your door even if
you'll only be away from the car
•for a few minutes.
—Be sure all windows are
—When you leave the car, put
packages in the trunk and be sure
it is locked. Don't tempt thieves by
putting your parcels on display
inside the car.
—Assuming that personal
belongings - and Christmas gifts
fall mto this category - are stolen
from your car, your loss may be
covered if you carry a personal
property floater insurance policy
or if you have a homeowners

—Keep in mind that thefts of
personal property from a" motor
vehicle or trailer - other than a
public conveyance such as a bus or
a taxicab - may be covered only if
the thief forces the vehicle open
while all the doors, windows and
other openings m the car are
closed and locked.

degrees Fahrenheit - to prevent
bacteria growth. To pul it as
'simply as possible, if you aren’t
going to serve a food within an
hour aftf r cooking, refrigerate it.
Wash your hands with soap and
water before handling any foods.
After you handle raw meat, fish,
poultry or eggs, wash your hands,
utensils and flat surfaces with soap
and hot water before working with
other foods. Remove stubborn
bacteria from a cutting board by
scrubbing it with soap, rinsing it in
hot water and then applying a
solution of 1 teaspoon chlonne
bleach to 1 quart of water.
Roasting a turkey tor Christ
mas'/ Cook it completely to an
internal temperature ot 170 to 175
degrees Fahrenheit. Never par
tially cook a turkey with the idea ot
finishing the cooking later. Bac
teria can survive in partially
cooked poultry and "staph’’
bacteria may produce toxins.
Remember to cook the turkey
stuffing thoroughly, too. ft you
plan to stuff the turkey, do it just
before you put the turkey into the
oven. Better yet, cook the stuffing
separately, basting occasionally
with the turkey juices.
Cool leftovers quickly and put
them in the refrigerator. Don’t
hold any broth or gravy tor more
than a day or two. To serve again,
reheat and boil tor several minutes
before serving - then serve hot.
