MYF youth grouv will be Christmas Be a good host The following suggestions for party hosts can help insure a sociable but sober holiday party, says a Texas A&M University Agricultural Extension Sex- vice health education specialist. Serve food while the guests are drinking, not after. Food slows down the rate at which alcohol is absorbed into the blood stream, and slows the rate at which people drink. Make sure non-alcoholic drinks are as easily available and at- tractively served as alcoholic drinks. Monitor a self-serve bar or have a responsible person serve as bartender. Pace the drinks by serving at regular, reasonable intervals. Don't serve doubles, or push drinks on the guest who says "no thanks". Close the bar before the end of the party and serve a substantial snack. Don't let a guest who has over-indulged drive home.

Some months they're higher, depending on how much electricity you use. But for most of us there aren't any highs and lows in our monthly income. It's pretty much the same from month to month. So, balancing the monthly budget be a problem. Well, Texas Power and Light Company has an answer. It's the Average Billing Plan. And each month after you join, you'll pay an average of your monthly electric bills over the past twelve months. No more ups and downs. Of course, you're still paying for all the electricity you use. But with average bill- ing, your electric bills will be about the same each month. So budgeting will be that much easier. If you want to know more about our Average Billing Plan, call your local TP&L office today. for a returned check will be $10.00. date of proposed rate structure change is December 31, 19e 3.
