Place r» I Everyone knows that after electricity Is turned on It works almost without attention—quietly, dependably, and comfortably. But not everyone realizes that if electricity is used with a time- clock it will even turn itself on or off automatically. This additional feature is especially valuable on the farm. Modern all- cldctrlc stoves are now equipped with a time-clock. A story told by an In- 1 diana farmwife illustrates how cooking If may be done in the modern way with a both temperature and time control. The \jmily was to attend a reunion the next day. She prepared the beans and put them in the oven in the • evening. At 2 o'clock while the family was asleep, the heat turned on automatically. At 7 o'clock it turned off. The oven kept them hot until after 9 when they Were taken out and then driven 60 miles to the reunion. The dinner was still piping hot upon arrival. The farm woman who has such an arrangement on her electric range is entirely free to go to town during the day and her dinner will be cooked perfectly when she returns in the evening. The farmer himself has uses for the • time-clock on the farm. During the p winter, it has become a prevailing ^ custom among many poultry farmers •> to light the chicken houses in the morning and at night in order to in> t crease winter egg production. With f,the time-clock, this is all taken care .xjf, and the farmer does not have to break into his sleep at four o'clock in the morning to snap the switch. At night the lights turn off automatically ht 9 or 9:30 or at whatever time ,the clock is set, chalking up one more tally for the versatility of electric powel- in making the farm a more liv- ejfrlc place. Roosevelt Kitchen All-Electric One Present White House Kitchen Far Cry From Washington's Day JReal Estate Not ice. i ALL OWNERS of residences, build-c Ing lots, or farms, for rent, sale, 'or trade are courteously requested to phone 826 and give descriptions and particulars of property to— Foster & Bordeni 123 W. Division St. * Licensed Real Estate Brokers I The movement toward a kitchen to keep women young reached a new high recently when Mrs. Franklin t>. Roosevelt escorted a group of newspaper women through the shiny new all-electric White House kitchen, just installed in the First House of the Land. While this particular electrified kitchen is oh a huge 1 scale, ready to serve not only the presidential family but scores of official guests and the large White House staff, every item can be individually duplicated in sizes suitable for families of two and up. Such models of efficiency in the culinary art have been within the reach of city women for several years; the rural electrification movement, now spreading across the country, is bringing them within range of the farm wife. The White House all-electric kitchen with its automatic heat controls, its meat grinder, its food mixers, its toasters, warming ovens, soup tanks, and swift dumb-waiters, is a far cry from the primitive kitchen over which Martha Washington presided at Mount Vernon. Many a modern housewife has examined the restored kitchen of the first First-Lady and returned home well satisfied, with her lot. For them, the beauty of the old plantation is dimmed a little by the thought of the hardships which once were a part of the simplest household tasks. The huge fireplace, with the built-in oven, covers one whole wall, its yawning mouth eternally hungry for logs. Iron spits of assorted lengths, long and short stemmed gourds, formidable iron pots are reminders of the Iron Age of cooking. Mount Vernon's kitchen is far from the house and connected by a covered outdoor walk. Kitchen smells in the dining room were thus rare, but so were piping hot dishes. In the White House a swift electric dumb-waiter whisks the food from the kitchen to the State dining room in no time at all. And electric fans blow what few cooking ordors remain in the gleaming kitchen far away in another direction. Electricity has virtually eliminated dirt and smell and smoke and heat. The porcelain walls, avery-green-and- cream, the deep green linoleum floor and the countless drudgery-saving appliances can retain their original lustre and freshness for years to come. If a modern housewife were to inspect the White House kitchen she probably would go home determined to match its convenience and comfort at the.earliest opportunity. The Indian sauvastika has branches which turn from right to left and which is regarded as an unlucky em- slem.' Electric Project Wilt Dedi Which AH Hempstead Co. at Spring Hill Wednesday Electric Brooder Aids Chicken Man Alutomatic Temperature Control Causes Chicken to Feather Better Here Are the Reasons Desirable features of an electric brooder arc listed below: 1. Temperature control is automatic, f 2. Causes chicks to feather better. 3. Particularly well adapted to late spring brooding when temperature control by other methods is often quite difficult. 4. Practically eliminates fire hazards. 5. Decreases labor and care. 6. Does not use up the oxygen as when fuel is burned. 7. On the average decreases mortality. Electric hovers, as a source of heat for brooding chicks, are no longer a novelty on farms and their use is increasing as electric lines are extended to farms throughout the state. Convenience and the saving of time and labor effected by the electric brooder are partly responsible for this sphead. according to Truman E. Hienton, of the Department of Agricultural Engineering of Purdue University. "Economy of operation has also played a part in the increased use of electric brooders," Mr. Hienton said. ' Mr. Hienton pointed out that in a teries o{ 66 tests conducted in Indiana from 1929 to 1935 the electric consumption by brooders per chick raised varied from less than one-fourth to more than one kilowatt hour, due to differences in mortality, numbers of chicks brooded, the skill of the operator, the season of brooding, and the length of the. brooding period. The average consumption by the GO flocks was .449 of a kilowatt hour per chick raised. Of the G6, flocks, 37 used less than half a kilowatt per chick, and 53, or 80 par cent, used less than % of a kilowatt. Of the eight using more than one kilowatt hour par chick raised, the mortality .in four of them exceeded 50 per cent and was 32 per cent.in a fifth. This high mortality rate was caused by pullorum disease. As an example of how the skill of the operator may influence the amount of current used, Mr. Heinton cited records on six electric brooders, op- era ted by the samf manjat'th* *i season of the 'year and l<Mr aj)j! imately ecjUal periods. The fttit the brooders averaged 23? Mid™ hours each, the next yes* 185, and da ing the third year the curreri i sumption was only 117^-less than of the first yeah Congratulations Hope Municipal Plant attd its 1 ^ new subscribers.

HOPE AUTO COMPANY "Your Ford Dealer" Radio One of First Items in Demand 2y 2 of 6% Million Farm Homes Now Have Receiving Sets The radio, bringing the world to the farm, is among the first electrical installations demanded by farm families as they get central station electricity for the first time. The radio is a comparatively new invention. Had man learned to use the ether waves long ago the history of the world might have been quite different, ( ^Had Columbus, in 1492, been able to "flash-back" the news of his discov- sry of a new continent, Spain would have sprung to action at the dramatic announcement. Had such a tiling been possible, Spain might still be Queen of the Seas and the most powerful nation on earth. There might nevei :iave been an United States of America. Instead, however, unharnessec radio ether played merrily around and through Columbus and his tiny fleet and no one was the wiser. It took months, even years, for the news of the great discovery to seep through Europe. By the time it became generally spread about, it had acquired mythical qualities. No doubt, hearers shook their heads and murmured, "Interesting, i£ true," or "So what?" in their own peculiar language and went on about their business. There was no Graham MacNamee to describe the beauty of the mountains and plains of the new country, the cclorful ceremonies of the fantastic natives, the untold wealth of the new world, nor the vagaries of its climate. Only a few courageous adventurers went off to confirm the few distorted reports and explore for themselves; and so, the settling of the new world was accomplished in a slow and spotty fashion. How different things are today. How rapidly news travels, thanks to Edison, Heinrich Hertz DeForrest, Marconi and other illustrious scientists. , As uf January 1935, there were 60 = RCA Radio Tubes ~ Evercady Batteries = = Expert Repair Work = 383 208 So. Elm" radio stations broadcasting National Farm and Home hour while 623 transmitters presented weather forecasts, and 14G stations cooperated with the Department of Agriculture in broadcasting market news. In 37 states, 221 stations supply radio time for the State Extension Service and the Department of; Agriculture, and the remaining 11 states have commercial stations on which the Department of Agriculture broadcasts frequently. Agricultural colleges operate 19 transmitters and 13 of them use commercial facilities. Of the 6,800,000 farms in the United States, about two and one-half million have radio receivers, a very large proportion of them of the battery- operated types. The modern radio is a greatly improved instrument. It can be directly connected to a 110-volt circuit. Us operating expanse is low. The energy consumed by a radio is small equivalent to that used by an ordinary electric light bulb of from 50 to 100 watts capacity. Tests made in various farm homes give 8 kwh as the average energy consumed a month. This means a cost at 40 cents a month at a 5 cent kwh rate. Certainly this is a small price to pay for the valuable information and the endless entertainment which a radio brings to the farm family. The new radio eliminates fussin" over wet or dry batteries and fre quent decreases in colume becaus of run-down equopment. ll:e prices of radios now on Uit market vary widely. They range fron $10 to $20 for box receivers and fron 520 up to much higher figures for receivers installed in floor cabinets. Cheaper radios have shorter lives und poorer tone qualities. For tht tinest reception and long-time satisfaction it is better to purchase a fairlj higher priced radio. The average price of all radios sold in the United States last year was $50.

Mountain Cattle Die by Mysterious Poison RAYMOND, Calif. -<#)_ An unknown plant poison is believed by authorities to be the cause of numerous deaths among cattle in the mountain ranges near this town. A number of poisonous plants grow in the region but as a rule instinct guides cattle away from them. The appearance of the alligator is imilar to that of the lizard, and it was a natural mistake for the early Span- ards to classify the alligator as a LONDON.— (JP) —Tow-headed Jack Hawkins, typical English boy, returns to school this fall with the chances 1,000-to-l against his getting to the ton in life. Jack (that's as good a name as any) probably doesn't know that, but those are the odds against him given by Professor John Hilton of Cambridge who says attainment of the "reservec stalls of life" in England is an almos exclusive privilege of public schoo graduates. And Jack, son of a lower middle class English family, doesn't go to public school. For England's public schools are not public at all, but high-tuition private institutions attended by few but young aristocrats. Figures Tell Jack's Fate Backing up his odds against Jack Professor Hilton says public school men in "reserved stalls" include 52 of 56 bishops, 19 of 24 deans, 122 of 156 county court judges and recorders, 152 of 210 civil servants paid more than $5,000 annually and 20 of 21 cabinet ministers. To get to the top. he tells Jack: "You must have been at the right school and be entitled through life to wear he right school tie." Others take the view, however, that there are more public school boys in high places than others because the public school boyi just naturally were smarter than the others. It also is pointed out that boys like Jack, in rare instances, can go through public schools on free scohalrsihps. State Supports Some Schools But in England where money comes o the masses in smaller lots and is spent more carefully than in the Unit- id States, Jack's father would have to lave an income of more than $3,000 annually before he could send his iion- cholarship sons to public schools. Jack's father doesn't. supported schools and the smaller private schools where costs are considerably less than in the "public" schools. By far the majority of boys like Jack are shunted off into state schools which prepare them for mechanical and clerical jobs, either profesisonal or semi-professional in character, Or May Quit School Others are apprenticed to manufacturers or craftsmen, and there always is available the full-time, part-time and night vocational schools. 'Jack is at cross roads. By this time he has been in school nine years, and the educational system of examinations has determined his degree of intelligence. If he follows the majority he soon will quit school and go to work at what ever cffers. Although the compulsory school age is 5 to 14, many leave earlier with permission. Knows U. S. Through Movies England's traditional middle course in foreign relations is reflected in the average Jack's outlook on other countries. He regards the world with a comparatively unbiased eye. By training, however, he would sooner take up a career at home or in some British colony than in a foreign country, and he probably will live and die in England or on land over which the Union Jack waves. Jack gets his ideas of the United States from the movies and the penny press. He sees that country as a land of cowbolys, Indians, gangsters, G- nien, beautiful women and millionaires.
