"Th'- Federal law provides children with priceless commodity — time to go to school," was the word from Homer E. Krog, Regional Director of the U.S. Labor Department's Wage and Hour and Public Contracts Divisions, the agency which enforces the Act. The child-labor provisions protect lota) youngsters and children of migratory workers alike, Krog pointed out. There is only ti exception to the rule"prohibiting children under 16 from working in agrifutturt* during school hours of the district where the child lives while working. That exception is for the farmer's child working on his parents' farm. Krog said that children may lawfully work on farms before and alter school hours, and on weekends and other days when there is no school, "The farmer can easily make sure of the age of any young worker if he asks for an age certificate. A certificate showing the young person is old enough for the job serves as proof of age for purposes of the Act," Krog said. These certificates generally can be obtained from local school officials. The child labor provisions apply to Tanners who engage in interstate commerce, or ship produce in interstate commerce or to dealers in the same State who then ship the produce in interstate commerce. Regional Director Krog said persons who want mort: information about the application of the Act to children working on farms should get in touch with the Wage-Hour Regional Office, Federal Office Building, Kansas City, Missouri, or the Field Office at 413 Federal Office Building, Des Moines D, Iowa.

A huge entry of saddle, fine h a r ness, pleasure, Roadster, Quarter and Stock horses will compete in the sixteen different horse show programs throughout the exposition. Exposition officials point out the addition of two new classes, me for the Quarter horse and the Jther an increase in the number )f classes open for competition n the Roadster division. Over 15% of the Roadster horses have wen trained as harness race wst-9. which ailds immeasurably to the color of these classes. The big horses will also be back.

Her mother looked through the open door of her room and laughed tit the confusion of clothes, books and other things. "It's a good tiling school doesn't start for a week", she said, "It'll take you that long to find the door in your mow, much less anything in the room." Uut Carol wasn't in n laughing mood. "Mother.

Your Corn is Money WHEN YOU SPEND CORN FOOLISHLY, ia i» the name as spending money foolishly! Your corn U worth about $1.10 at the local elevator, and when you spend TWO bushels of corn when you should be spending one, it is a waste of money. For example, you can spend $13.20 of your "corn bank" to put 100 Ibs. gain on a hog. Or you can spend $6.05 from your "corn bank" and $2.25 on our double balanced HOG PRO TONE SUPPLEMENT to put 100 »bs. gain on a hog. YOU THEN SPEND YOUR CORN wisely and save yourself $4.90 in your "corn bank". YOUD CORN IS MONEY! SPEND IT WISELY!!

Fertilizer is one of the«^productive investments, University of Illinois farm economists point out. So it can be profitable for a farmer to borrow .money and buy the needed plant food on a sound plan when he knows what his land requires to produce top yields and what the results can be. The farmer needs to have all the facts and figures before he goes to a banker or lender for a loan, these economists point out, Michigan economists tell about the case of one farmer who greatly increased his profits over a three-year period by using credit to buy fertilizer. During the first year, this farmer spent an average of only $2 per acre for fertilizer on 250 acres or a total of $500 for the farm. Soil tests showed this was not enough. The next year the farmer doubled his use of plant food. Then the third year he borrowed $2,000 to buy fertilizer. This Investment quickly paid for itself and gave him some profitable- extra returns per acre. Farmers should, of course, be cautious about using credit, the Michigan men point out. These specialists advise three safeguards: 1—Don't overestimate your future income; 2— Don't underestimate your expenses; 3—Make sure you allow enough leeway for poor cv.>u yields and low prices. from helping me with my homework. Nest year I'll be taking sieumetry, anil if it's anything like algebra was, I'll simply go rserk. First Dad would act as if I was stupid if I couldn't solve three equations with four unknowns in my head, and then he'd rttivvt acting as iC h«'d have to teach me that one from one leaves zero. Honestly, it was awful!" Carol's worry was one that many children have. We adults often become impatient with our children's dificulties in learning things that seem utterly simple to us. Adolescent children sound and look so much like grownups in so many ways, and they spend so much time trying to convince us that they are grown up, that we sometimes lose sight of the fact that we have had much greater and broader experience than Iney have. We, too, had once to learti what seems so Jinple to us, and we often for- I'.et how hat-it and painful the learning experience may have been for us. Sometimes our impatience stems from other causes. For some parents, there is mingled prides and tbivat us their children come closer anil closer to their own wol of skill and knowledge, Some parents are made uneasy by Die dwindling of their superiority over their children's ability. Others become impatient with tin? eieat «aps between their hiUlren's capacity in some areas -like arithmetic—and their lack 11' .skill or judgment in others. We must remember that the adolescent really isn't entirely grown up, and it is unfair of us to ex- peet liim always to act as if he were, THE EMBLEM OF DEPENDABILITY "You can pay ntox* -* but you can'* buy Mfd. by Bell-Brand
