Adjustments Needed ; For Lespedeza And Soybean Crops Keitli J. Bilbrey. county agent, urged every combine owner lo place his machine in first-class operating condition before he begins to harvest his lespcdeza or soybeans, In n statement made public today. , Combines that are now set for harvesting small grains, he said, will require Horn two to five hours to Wake the adjustments necessary for harvesting soybeans." On most corn- bines the small pulley on the cylinder shaft must be exchanged wllh the larger pulley on the countershaft In order to cut the cylinder speed enough for harvesting soybeans. Two or three makes of combines operating In Arkansas, the county ngent said, are equipped with a feed oY shelling plate which the crop must pass over ns It starts under the cylinder. When adjusting the? clearance between cylinder and the concaves in the grates, the combine owner should also ad Just, tho clearance between the cylinder and . feed or shelling plate.. Combines equipped with rubber- faced cylinder bars and feed 01' shelling plates should be checked closely for wear. These bars should be replaced with-the rubber faced bars wear off, leaving metal corners exposed to the crop passing under the cylinder. Tlie shelling plate can be reversed, thus getting double service from the rulibor cover on the plate. On some machines there is n difference in the limits of adjustments of the plate after it has been reversed. • Soybeans for oil, Ihe county agent pointed o.ut, arc sold on grade, with dirt, weed seed, sticks, and stems counting against the grade. Proper adjusfment of the combine, he snid, will eliminate most, of these. Also, improper adjustment of the combine rhny'account'for the loss of a largo number ot bonns. Heavy seed losses, he said, may result from the use of dull sickles, guards being out of line, Improper adjustment of the reel. Improper adjustment of the air blast, shoe sieve closed too close, tail' board rafeed too high, and irregular cylinder speed, ^Eyery combine owner, the county agent said, should have an operator's instruction manual for his par-' titular make nnd model of combine, and the manual, he added, should be available to the combine operator, . at'nil-, times.- NS-PEA!

Cotton Surplus Remedy Sought Washington NEW YORK, C:t. 13 I OP) — Dixie's while elephant, the cotton surplus, will come to the forefront, in Washington next week as discussions get under way on what, to do ivKh this enormous surplus. Next Monday and Tuesday the Cotton Advisory Committee, which is Ihe standing body named by the Secretary of Agriculture, will"confer with Commodity Credit Corporation officials on the government's proposed cxirort subsidy and crop purchase programs. Trade quarters frankly admit the conferees will have a tough nut to crack. Among ruirations likely to arise may include what steps should be taken to avoid ehnmes of "dumping" United States cotton on foreign markets, which - in lurn mfelit complicate International trade anil diplomatic relations with countries such as Brazil. Brazil has cotton for sale now at 1C cents a pound in comparison with the U. S. •Government purchase price ol nearly 22 cents a pound, and in all likelihood will be competing for business In the same world'markets.

CHICAGO, Oct. 13 (UP)— The journal of the American Medical Association says the addition of vitamins and minerals, other than Vitamin D, to ml!k does not serve a,public health need. On the other hand, by raising production costs, it can result in decreased consumption by those in the lower economic levels who need milk most., • A report of the council on foods and nutrition of the medical association, printed in the journal, says the council Kas approved the fortification of milk with vitamin D, but questioned whether "It Is in the interest of' public health to fortify milk with vitamin A, thiamine, .ribcflavin, nlachln, iron and iodine." Addition of vitamin D to milk is encouraged because vitamin 0 is not present in important amounts in a customary diet unless fish oils are. included, but addition of the other materials "does not serve a public health need sufficiently to warrant council acceptance of the fortified product," -Cereals arc much more Important as a vehicle for added thiamine than is milk and a diet containing meat, eggs, fresh vegetables and whole grain or enriched flour amply supplies the iron requirement. The council pointed out that in where iodine is deficient It nsuallj is added to table salt ana "it seems unwise to sanction the ndditUm to iodine to more than one food.'

Pickles and relishes do not store up great food value, she'ad- mitted, but their spicy tang nnd crlspncss offer.n way to bring .changes : when winter'meals seem dull. Green tomatoes can be made into dill pickles successfully, and they also make good sweet sliced pickles, relish, and canned brined pickles! They arc best pickled within 24 hours after gathering. The tomatoes should be ns near the same size as possible so the curing will >e eVen throughout. Good pickles, she explained; are rm, clear, and even in color iroughont, with no cloudy or white lots, and Imvc a tart, pungent fla- or. To obtain such a product, it is nporlant that the right ingrerii- its be nscd nnd be measured ac- irately. A good, clear, standard incgar, from four to six per cent cetlc acid, free from sediment, is tst for pickling. Utensils of enamel ware, aluml- um, or stainless steel should be scd to heat the acid pickling liquid fiss Colcnran warned against using copper kettle—as grandmother riiil —to make pickles bright green, tm- css the copper is bright nnd shiny or the ncld will rcnct with tlie tarnish on the metal and form a poisonous salts. Acid or salt vith zinc and forms a substance qirnlly harmful. Pickles should be packed in glass- op jars and sealed airtight. She warned against the use of metal ids that allow the pickles to touch :he metal. there is no cool moist storage room In the cellar lo keep white potatoes during the winter, they will keep in a barrel bxiried In the back 5'ard.

Spring Twine ; In Upholstery With the curtailment in the manufacture of furniture nnd the dissatisfaction among consumer's with thill which Is being manufactured, keeping upholstered furniture In tt good state of repair is essential, says Miss Cora Lee Coleman, county home demonstration agent. Explaining that springs in upholstered furniture often get loose find sage because the spring twine holding them in position has brok- lonsc. she states that it is not difficult,, even for nn amateur, ; to retie these springs. Her directions for relying the springs in n chair are as follows: ; l?emove the cushion, turn the clinir upside clown, and remove the cnmbrlc covering, or "dust catcher/' Then, remove the tacks holding the Inside arm and inside back covering in place and then remove thci-tncjts holding the covering on the sent in Place. ; Turn the chair in an upright position and remove tlie covering over the springs of the sent. Remove nny padding on the springs and last, the burlap covering over the springs. Notice very carefully the manner in which the springs were tied together, and retie thorn After tlie springs are relied into position, cover them with the burlap. If the burlap which Is on the springs is badly worn, replace it •Aitli new. Replace the padding and then the seat covering and tack it into position. Pull the Inside arm and back' coverings in place, and complete the repair Job by tacking ! the cambric covering under the ' bottom.
