TIPS And Tjj" SUGGESTIONS Farmers Warned Of Swine Enteritis Farmers were warned today that swine enteritis ranks as one of the major causes of hog losses from the time when pigs are weaned until they are ready for market. So said the American Founda tion for Animal Health, which added that the disease may easily occur after pigs are shifted to a heavy diet, particularly corn. Veterinary medical authorities said that in most outbreaks of enteritis there is an inflammation of the colon and cecum — the blind pouch at the head of the large intestine. The inflammation often is fatal. General symptoms for which farmers should be alert include bloody scours, a gaunt appearance, and loss of considerable weight. The Foundation said that a veterinarian should be called at the first sign of such symptoms, so as to set up prompt measures to hold down losses. All hogs in the herd should be checked for signs of the disease and the healthy ones separated from th sick ones. The healthy animals also should be kept under close watch, to detect further cases which might develop. ing to dressmaking in a junior farm exposition now scheduled for this year's Iowa State Fair here, Aug. 23-Sept. 1.

There's a new way to raw pack corn. It's surer, safer mathod that was recently developed by the United States Department of Agriculture, according to Merle R. Bo vis, Fayette County Extension Home Economist. When you can cream style corn, use pint jars only. Pack corn to 1 inch from the top. Don't press down or shake. Add teaspoon of salt to each jar. Fill to the top with boiling water. Adjust the lids. Process at 10 pounds of pressure for 95 minutes. Use the same method for whole kernel corn, but process pints 55 minutes and (marts 85 minutes. Freezing peaches this summer? Here's how to keep the fruit from darkening in air: Slice peaches directly into the cold sirup which which was prepared and cooled ahead of time. To make the sirup, dissolve 3 cups of sugar in 4 cups .if water. This makes about 5-M> cups of sirup. You'll need 2/3 cup of sirup for each pint continer of peaches, says Merle R. Bovis, Fayette County Extension Home Economist. To help peaches keep their natural color and flavor while m the freezer, add powdered ascorbic acid. Use V4 teaspoon of ascorbic acid to each 4 cups of sirup. It is sold at drug >;.>:-.•< and some freezer-locker The question is so often asked. How can I perk up my limp pet- ticcvai and dress?" Until just re- cs :-.:';>. laundry starch was your .-:-.;> way of perking up limp fab: :cs Hut now you'll find several different fabric finishes on grocery store shelves, says Merle R. Bovis. Fayette County Extension Home Economist. Three of these finishes—ordinary laundry starch plastic starch, and CMC (short for carboxymethyl cellulose)— were recently compared in tests. Researchers found that each finish gives some protection against wear. It's harder to apply CMC than other finishes, but it's the most helpful in removing dirt. However, you may not be able to find CMC in your local stores. White garments—such as cotton shirts—become whiter with each wash when garments are finished with starch, plastic or CMC. Clothes with no finish or with plastic finish iron easily. You may find "no finish" clothes more comfortable to wear, but you may feel that finishes improve the looks of clothes. Iris may be divided and replanted soon for best flowering next season, says Horticulturist Charles Sherwood of Iowa State College. After you dig up old plants, separate rhizome (underground stem) clumps into "fans" of one or two shoots. Cut out rotted or infected parts. Trim leaves to half length. Plants disease- free rhizomes for crown rot, Sherwood says. Details of this disease treatment are available at your county extension office. Your own truck is your "best bet" for moving livestock to and from shows and fairs. Veterinarian John Herrick, Iowa State College, says you'll use only clean, disinfected trucks if you want to keep your show animals healthy. At the fair, Herrick advises, feed the same ration the animal was accustomed to at home. Keep your animals cool. Use an electric fan on hot days. When you get home, quarantine your show animals away from the rest of the herd where you can watch them for 30 days. Show contacts could have niud<- them disease carriers. • • • • The United States Department of Agriculture reports the fatal- accident rate has been increasing on farms in the United States. SUMMER FRUSTRATION THiS WEEK -In Washington ISsmTl With Clinton Davidson President Eisenhower added fuel to the already hot farm program controversy by hta decision to continue with Ezra Taft Benson as his Secretary of Agriculture. The Secretary has both strong supporters and sharp critics because of his insistence on lowerinp price supports and reduction of farmer dependence on government programs. Congressional and farm critics have denounced him bitterly because farm prices and Income have declined steadily in recent years. They contend that hla program has failed and, If continued, would wreck agriculture. President Elsenhower has continued to be one of Benson's itaunchest supporters. Benson went to tht White House not long ago with an ofTer to resign, but Mr. Elsenhower talked him out of it. The decision to keep Benson means that farm and congressional groups will be divided into two hostile camps when farm legislation Ls taken up by Congress next year. A long bitter fight Is probable. The Secretary, backed by the iKiwerful Farm Bureau, and a minority of Farm Bloc congressmen, will seek modifications In Diesent farm laws. The main objective will be to get legislation iieiinltling lower price supports. Farmer cooperatives and the National Orange, backed by a majority of Farm Bloc congressmen, will seek a major overhauling of present programs, with primary emphasis on commodity programs, including two-price plans and marketing agreements. Benson wlli have the big advantage of the President back of him. He has reason to expect that Mr. Eisenhower would veto any program not in line with his thinking. That happened In 1956, when a high price support bill was vetoed. Mr. Elsenhower gave Secretary Benson added backing when he sent the nomination ot Dr. Donald Paarlberg to the Senate to be \3slstant Secretary of Agriculture. Dr. Paarlberg, a former college professor, has been chief economic advisor to Benson since early 1953. Dr. Paarlberg drew fire from critics of Benson's farm program when, in a speech, he told farmers 'hat parity was a "dream world" they should never expect to see igaln. Farm income has declined by 20% during four years of Benson'.' 'arm program admlnKtra'ion. He contends that this was una void- \ble because of huge surpluses ^ullt up under the previous Administration. Critics, on the other hand -.harge him with following a policy if lower supports that resulted In 'ower prices. They say his only proposal Is that Congress give him uithorlty to put into effect still lower price supports next year. About all you can be certain of Us that Benson will occupy one of the hottest spots In Washington during thp n'-xt 12 months.
