The ugly pile of junk rested several feet from an open manhole alongside the southbound lane of Route 130 in Collingswood. The collection, expunged yesterday from a clogged 18-inch drainage pipe running under the state road, contained roadside and household refuse. There were muddy strips of old carpeting, a large truck's rubber tire flap, a hubcap, railroad ties, a piece of tarpaulin, a shock absorber, a barbecue grill and a rubber shoe sole. Workers last week also discovered six to eight sandbags that a former Woodlynne councilman contends were left over from a sewer construction project undertaken by the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority in the early 1980s.

MUSIC WAS a big part of the life of Rose M. Sims. She sang it and she danced it. She was a teenage dancer on "American Bandstand" before Dick Clark showed up. Over the years, she won numerous dance contests, especially for her expertise at the bop. As a singer, her range covered gospel, R&B, jazz and the blues. She mostly sang at home, where her two daughters were her best audience. "We loved it when she sang," said daughter Robin Sims. Rose Sims, a Bayada home-health-care aide for 25 years, a champion cook on the barbecue grill, an active churchwoman and a devoted mother and grandmother, died Sept.

Today I would like to share with you my personal technique for dealing with the Greenhouse Effect. The Greenhouse Effect is, of course, the most recent alarming worldwide homicidal trend discovered by those busy beavers, the scientists. They have found that Earth is slowly being turned into a vast greenhouse, so that by the year 2010 - unless something is done - the entire human race will be crushed beneath a humongous tomato. Or something along those lines. I must confess I haven't been following the Greenhouse Effect all that closely.

HEAVENLY GOOD TIME If you're feeling an uncommon desire to kick up your heels and throw caution to the wind, it's in the stars. From now till Friday, the planets Jupiter, Venus and Mars will be clustered tightly together in a way that happens only every 120 years or so. "This triple conjunction is called 'Let's have a party,' because Mars and Venus represent your basic urge to merge," says Santa Fe astrologer Alan Oken. TREE OF DEATH There's a fungus among us that can kill, and it turns out to come from a common type of eucalyptus tree.

A barbecue is a barbeque is a Bar-B-Q - whether it's in Fairmount Park, on a fire escape or in a sprawling suburban back yard. But barbecue utensils are something else again. Even if you've moved up from hotdogs and hamburgers to soft-shell crabs and boned leg of lamb, one key to a good barbecue is having the proper equipment, fuel and fire. Hardware stores and cookware shops are graduating from the basic barbecuing tools (long-handled fork, spatula and basting brush)

Yo, Chefs! I am a crab lover: hardshell, softshell, no shell, male, female. I have made several dishes with crab and would like to try more. Can you help me find one? Marcia Sheppard Philadelphia Dear Marcia, Here's a wonderful recipe for grilled softshell crabs in a sage barbecue sauce, from chef Zachary Conover of Philadelphia Fish & Co. He serves the dish in great quantities during softshell season. Do not be afraid of cleaning softshell crabs. It is actually very easy.

Following is a list of small pleasures: Getting up on a morning you have an interesting but not very hard job to do. Watering the lawn. Turning off the television set and sitting there in silence, reading, after realizing there's nothing on any channel that you want to watch. Licking a stamp and mailing a letter. Buying a quart of oil at a supermarket and saving money by putting it in the car yourself. Going to bed tired after having done a lot of physical work.

Iowa raises more pigs than any other state in the nation, some 16 to 17 million annually. That's between 25 and 30 percent of the total number of hogs produced in America. Iowa is also the home of the National Pork Producers Council which has had its home offices in Des Moines since its beginning in 1954. It is little wonder that Iowa butchers know what they're doing when it comes to cutting pork. I watched a couple of them at work doing a pork cutting demonstration "Iowa Style" at a recent American Association of Meat Processors' convention in Des Moines.
