Farming in Finney By: KENNETH FROMM County Agricultural Agent The subject of civil defense is one that has received considerably less emphasis during the past few months. The hot-and- cold nature of our existence today does not make the need for preparedness any less real from month to month, however. Last winter a number 'of farm homes were equipped with fallout-shelters. With all tlie building going on in town as well as in the country, a fallout shelter could be put into a new home with a minimum of cost. We have a large supply of bulletins which contain plans and bills of material for fallout shelters in our office. They are free for-the asking. Why don't you investigate how such a facility might fit your home. These extra rooms can provide a place for storage, a darkroom, a playroom for the children, or it can be put to other uses, A few of- these bulletins have been on display in our bulletin rack where they can be picked up at any time you come by the courthouse. Incidentally, We have a number of other bulletins on display whiah you may find of interest. They include "Trends in Hog Prices", "Farm and City Real Estate Taxes", "Facts About Fallout", "Crop Varieties f o r Kansas" and many others. The guessing contest in connection with the Finney County Money Maker Milo Tour last week turned out to be both interesting and informative. ..Those big, well filled, milo heads that people have been guessing up to one pound in weight turned out to be real fool- ers. The idea was to guess the weight of five milo heads to the nearest ounce. The .average' weight guessed was in the neighborhood of 30 ounces, or almost two pounds, with a number of people guessing considerably ! more. | The total of the five head samp- | les from ten fields weighed out at i 193 ounces or 19.3 ounces for five heads on the average for both irrigated and dryland milo. That makes the average milo head j weight right at V* pound. This isn't all grain either. This includes all of the head plus about one inch of stalk. It was very gratifying to see the interest that the various farmers and businessmen on the tour took in this contest as well as other informational aspects of the tour. We had a good one this year. We are looking for an even bigger and better one in 1963. Water costs are one of the major costs in irrigation farming — but not the greatest, usually. For irrigated corn, water costs ! represent about 12 per cent of the total production costs. Land costs represent about 15-18 per cent and fertilizer costs 16-20 per cent of the total annual costs. Since irrigators have made commitments for some of the major cost items before the irrigation season begins, it is essential that adequate water be applied timely. We are at the peak water usage of plants, so don't neglect I your irrigation program and j strive for maximum efficiency I in your watering system. WE HAVE MOVED TO 901 E.

(AP)—Only rubble remains of ar a unition assembly building which was demolished when a woman panicked and tossed a smoking simulated bomb onto a production line. Th e bomb touched off all 500 of the bombs in the plant in a chain reaction of explosions that shattered the building and had it flaming from end to end in a matter of minutes. About 35 women employes moved swiftly and calmly out of the building seconds before it blazed up. They escaped injury, but three of them were treated at a hospital for shock. Damage was estimated at $40,000. The building, about 100 feet long by 30 feet wide, was located aibout 100 yards from the rest of the plant. Simulated bon.,s are the type used by the armed forces for training and, individually, are are considered safe at a distance of 75 feet. Cora R. Blackwell Former Kearny Agent Named Two Kansas county home economics agents, Cora Blackwell, Minneapolis, and Mrs. Alice Olen, Liberal, will receive distinguished service recognition October 26 during the Natonai Home Demonstration Agents Assn. meeting in Chicago. ' The honor, sponsored by the association, goes to members who have been home economics Extension workers for 10 years or more and are on a county Extension staff at the time of the award. A committee from the state association recommends agents to the national organization. Miss Blackwell was Kearny County home economics agent for 12 years before joining the Ottawa County Extension staff in February, 1962. She entered the Kansas Extension Service in 1948 and worked in Clay, Rawlins and De- eatur counties before going to Kearny County. A graduate of Fort Hays Kansas State College, Miss Blackwell has attended Kansas State University and Colorado State University. She taught'and was home economist with Farm Home and Farm Security before becoming an Extension agent. Mrs. Olen, Seward County home •aigent since 1956, previously taught and was a member of the staff. She graduated from Oklahoma State and has a graduate degree from Iowa State University. Wheat Vote Totals Announced Approval by farmers of marketing quotas for the 1963 crop of wheat means that growers in commercial wheat- producing areas will grow and market next year's crop under a marketing quota program, Gilbert W. Eg- b e r t, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation state committee, said today. Final results of the August 30 referendum in the 39-state commercial wheat-producing area show that 68.4 per cent of the 247,508 farmers voting favor marketing quotas on the 1963 wheat crop. Quotas must be approved, by at least two-thirds of the grow- J- : ••"-• • •'••• '•'•'•'. :•'; '.; ; ; : '.*i-: ;.::,.• • '•'• ' .

With so much interest in the now products that are available to the consumer I wanted to spend a little time and discuss with you some of these products and taking advantage of sales.

Do you ever wish for a different salad dressing for that oh- so-tartness? Then use this recipe. Mix one can frozen orange juice concentrate with one cup 7alad oil.

As you shop for cereals you have a choice of nearly 100 different kinds made from wheat, oats or corn. In comparing the cereals, check the weight of the contents on the label instead of considering the size of the box. Based on 1 ounce per serving for the ready prepared cereals, you can compare the costs of different kinds. The label also gives you some idea of the food value of the cereal. A turkey with a ready-fco-cook weight of 12 pounds will give about 5Vi pounds of ready-to- serve meat. The usual, allowance of one-half pound of ready-to-cook turkey per person provides 3 to 4 ounces of cooked meat per peison. A large turkey is usually the best when practical because they sell for less per pound than smaller birds and there is more edible meat per pound of Yeady- to-cook weight on the larger ones. Watch for items in your grocery store that are being featured at special prices. With planning you can make good use of them. Mcny homemakerg beb'eve that "specials or features" advertised each week are foods of inferior quality. This is not true. The specially priced items are being sold at near cost price to attract you and other shoppers into the store. Of course you probably buy other things once you are inside. Often the processor, wholesaler and retailer pass savings on to you as they clear stock to get ready for another processing season. This is especially true of canned fruits and vegetables when there is a large carryover supply. -Whether buying or wiling, use T olofiram Want Ads!
