SWECT PLANTING TILL MIDDLE OF MAY Gardem* Who Waits Uitti Mid-May td Set Out To fttato Plants and Most Beans Is Smart. That pre-snow March warm Weather cast its spell of temptation over some Iowa gardeners Who -couldn't resist slipping seed of Sweet corn and other warm- loving vegetables into the ground. Even some experienced gardeners succumbed to the weather's charms and planted sweet corn the first of April. Mid-May Gardening: The gardener who's waiting for early May to plant his sweet corn knows the ground won't be sufficiently warm until then. So his watch word is to be patient un- HI May M spite of balfh? weather. Mot much gained by setting out tomato, plants before nUd*May. Ana hot much is gained toy plant* ing most beans until that time or later. Some Gardens Too Wet Although plenty of gardens hav been planted, there are still lot of low, poorly-drained garden that have been too wet to work So there are plento of crops to be planted now without worrying about the warm season crops Peas and potatoes should go in before any others. Every effor should be made to get these in at the earliest possible moment Then follow with carrots, beets kohlrabi, lettuce, radishes, onions parsnips, salsify and chard. It's advisable to stagger lettuce and radish plantings to have enough of these crops -for table use over a long period of time. That plant- ng system helps avoid surpluses and waste which result from hav- ng too much ready at ohce.

Thursday, Friday Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Death Entire News Reel Devoted to the Subject. for the Family Saturday Fat Salvage Quota ^ Increased Over 100 Million Pound* 1945 The situation with respect to U. S. supplies of fats and oils, especially inedible fats for industrial purposes, is extremely serious and is causing great concern to the government and to the thousands of manufacturers whose processes require industrial fats. The only prospect of reasonably mmediate relief is a tremendous ncrease in the salvaging of used household fats and through the recovery of killing fats and dead stock. At a meeting in Washington on January 26 the various interested government agencies agreed on a quota for .1945 of 322 million Ibs of fat salvage. This is 100 million pounds more than was recovered in 1944 and represents a truly frigtening task. A major portion of this tremendous increase must come from the smaller cities and towns and from the farms of America. This is a very large potential volume in the smaller communities and on the farms. There is evidence that almost everyone in the United States knows all about the Government's Fat Salvage Campaign but that many homemakers in smaller cities and in rural areas have felt that they weren't expected to participate. Nothing could be farther from the truth. So the housewife of Kossuth, rural and town, is asked to extend every effort toward saving every pound of waste fat toward this war effort the coming year. She gets paid for this fat, not much, 'tis true, but along with this she also gets two reel stamps for every pound she turns in. r ^"^ '^IpifW^ pg|.
