Old Grocery Store Ads Prices From 1957 In Corpus Christi, Texas

"Sue Bostock" (2019-10-08)


Obviously the recipes on the other side of this food section containing the grocery store ads would have been the "why" and "how" of it ending up in that box. None of the recipes looked that appealing to me but the prices of the food grabbed my attention. My how things have changed! Many of these collected newspaper clippings and recipes originated with my maternal grandmother and then additions were made by my mother and even some of the recipes that I had given to my mother were in that same box. There is no doubt as to which person gathered this particular newspaper clipping. Our family had not yet moved to Texas from Wisconsin until the year 1960. My grandparents for many years however had vacationed in Texas. Annually reserved for them in McAllen at the Royal Palms Motel was cabin number 39 where they met other friends from scattered states all across America who also chose that same winter vacation spot. When leaving McAllen they had passed through Corpus Christi while starting their homeward bound journey in 1957 and picked up a newspaper from that city which is located on the Gulf of Mexico. That night they "watched Groucho and Dragnet" on television and planned to leave the next morning for Galveston, Texas. Look at These Prices! CACKLE FRESH DOZEN for 39 cents. PURE CANE 5 pounds for 49 cents. 3 pound tins were 79 cents. 2 pounds for 43 cents. 1/2 GALLON was 69 cents. HALF GALLONS were 39 cents. 4 pounds cost 45 cents. RiverBrand 12 ounce package was 11 cents. FRESH FROZEN TREESWEET BRAND - 6 oz., 2 cans for 25 cents. 3 packages for 25 cents.



When choosing a college or university most people start their research by looking at college rankings. One of the most popular is done by U.S. News and World Report and it is often considered a bible in the college application process. While U.S. News and World Report has several rankings including the best engineering and business programs, it does not have a ranking for undergraduate chemistry programs. Other rankings exist for chemistry programs like that of the National Research Council (NRC) or Science Watch, which ranks programs based on their published scholarly articles. Bear in mind that these rankings are for graduate study of chemistry, which is a completely different experience from undergraduate study and therefore with a completely different set of requirements. Since there is so much confusing information out there how do we figure out the top chemistry college? One of the most popular and widely respected rankings for chemistry programs is done by the National Research Council, which ranks all research doctoral programs in the U.S.



Some may argue that the best chemistry graduate programs will also have the best chemistry undergraduate programs. While this ranking gives you the best schools with the best research teams in the country (albeit 15 years old), it is not a good measure of a successful undergraduate chemistry program. This is largely because undergraduate and graduate students typically have different needs. The best chemistry graduate programs are usually at large research universities, with many undergraduate students, where it is possible for an individual undergraduate student to feel lost. The graduate programs on the other hand are usually smaller and the students get personal attention. Therefore, it is more prudent that as an undergraduate you attend a smaller school or a school with a much smaller program. Another popular, although more controversial, ranking of chemistry programs is done by Dr. Jack Gourman, who publishes the Gourman Report, a ranking of undergraduate programs.



Here is the 1993 ranking of undergraduate chemistry programs in the sixth edition of the Gourman Report. While the Gourman Report is popular among high school seniors and their college counselors, it has been criticized for its many shortfalls, including the fact that Dr. Gourman does not disclose his method for arriving at his results. The published reports are difficult to come by and are quite expensive. The original reports are not available on the web. The best approach to deciding the best chemistry program for you, which in itself is a very personal process, is to use all of these rankings as guides but not as a set of rules to follow. There are still many intangibles that you need to pay attention to that all add up to a successful undergraduate experience. Things like whether you feel at home and a sense of community at a particular school. What kind of support outside of the classroom will you get? Will you be nurtured and will your research be encouraged? Will you get to build personal one-on-one mentoring relationships with faculty? Another ranking that will help in this regard is the U.S. News and World Report rankings of the best schools for undergraduate research. At these schools students work on their own research or creative projects while being mentored by a faculty member. The result is often a scholarly paper or public presentation of their research. Here is the 2010 ranking showing the top 10 schools in this category. If you care so much about chemistry, chances are that you will want to go beyond the bachelor’s degree. There is no better way to demonstrate to graduate school admissions committees that you are ready for research than doing your own undergraduate research. Another list worthy of consideration is that of top chemistry colleges profiled in former New York Times education editor Loren Pope’s famous book Colleges that Change Lives.
