Dr. E. Francis Warren, of Harvard U., believes he will be able to "shoot down" the heaviest clouds and fog by his new invention demonstrated recently at Bolling Field, Wash., by Army fliers.

Virginia style ham. [...] did Mrs. Mark Bristol. [...]ze when she baked Virginia style. a couple of hams for friends a few years ago that would eventually develop into a lucrative business for her. The flavor of the hams so intrigued the friends that they passed the word on to others and as a result Mrs. Bristol now bakes thousands of hams every year in her kitchen on fashionable Massachusetts Avenue and ship them to all parts of the world. Even the Duke of Windsor is now one of her best customers. It takes Mrs. Bristol four days to prepare a ham according to her specially formulate recipe. It is first soaked and simmered for days and then while baking, it is sprinkled with cloves, pineapple and basted with sherry, brandy or applejack. The hams are originally obtained from a special farm in Virginia where they have been smoked in the real Dixie manner. Mrs. Bristol frequently inspects the ham while is it in the simmering process.

Hams now aged in 6 to 10 weeks. College Park, Md. Oct. 27. No longer is it necessary to age ham a year or so to obtain that sharp, pungent, cheesy flavor in the lean meat, so characteristic of southern style ham. Speeding up nature, the Maryland Experiment Station, University of Maryland, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, has developed a process by which it is possible to produce some of these characterisitc flavors in hams in relatively short time--6 to 10 weeks--by holding them at temperatures from 107 F to 125 F in specially constructed incubator. 1. The first step in the process is the thorough curing of the hams, three days being allowed for each pound of ham being cured. Mr. F.D. Carroll, of the Maryland Experiment Station, is shown with a few of the hams after they have been cured
