MANY WRITE, ASK BUTTER SHIPMENT It may be' cold in Kossuth county, with plenty of snow—but we have plenty of butter. It may be sophisticated to live in New York and not Kossuth— but we have plenty of butter. It may be warm in California and Florida and you can go swimming—but Kossuth has Dlenty of butter. All of which is one way of say- ng that the "folks 'back home" are being asked to ship butter to iistant points to such an extent hat this strange business has be* come a major bit of commerce. Even local grocers report that ,hcy are getting letters irom former customers now vacationing or living elsewhere, asking them 'or a few pounds of butter. Most of the calls for help come from California. Meanwhile, the dairy market- ng association states that ' the jutter famine now evident in some sections may not be reliev- d until spring. Price regulations have" made it more profitable to sell raw cream nan to make butter, market men contend, and the demand for :ream iri ice cream pfoduets has seen unprecedented. Army sales of "surplus" butter have also been halted. In the meantime, Kossuth folks are not feeling any great butter shortage.

The result was mighty disappointing. Only half of our young men planned to do so, and only one-tenth of our young women. Why don't they want to come back? Well, all you have to do in a lot or cases is to compare the places where they have been living for the past four years with the home they leit. Despite the cracks matlc about military housing, these young men and women lor the most part have enjoyed the advantages of modern, well-planned living quarters with central heating ana hot and cold running water. They can't help contrasting such a place with the inconvenient, cold, poorly ventilated farm home they left. The farm house has been described as the farmer's No. 1 problem today, and a lot of people nave been working to help him solve it. Miss Ruby M. Loper, Assistant Extension Agricultural Engineer at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, has a good circular (No. 714) on farm house planning. Here are a fow of her recom-' mendations: J. The farm house should face the entrance drive, not the highway past the farmstead. (And on my own, I'd. like to point out that a turn-around eliminates a lot of trouble getting out of the yard.) 2. The kitchen windows should command a view of the entrance drive, the barns, and lots. 3. The kitchen should be large enough to permit eating Space in one end or corner. 4. The rear entry should be arranged so that traffic may enter the rear door and pass into other parts of the house or into the basement without going into the kitchen. (Again, I'd like to mention that -, often theTShiftrofgiof-an old;>parti^ tion, or" ; puttihg in a new one .'to 1 ' make a hall through the house, will keep traffic out of the kitchen.) 5. Weather protection over both the rear and front entrances is dc- sira'ble. ' - , 6. A first floor work room or ubility room Will remove many of the messy tasks from the kitchen. (And what a dandy place to put the 'home freezer.) • 7. The men should have some place to wash, other than at the kitchen sink. ~ 8. A shower in the basement for the men to use when they come in from 'the fields lessens work for the housewife and adds to the comfort of the men. . " 9. A screened porch which may serve as a dining room, a place to rest, sew, or iron in the summer is particularly advantageous in the midwest. 10. A farm office, accessible from the rear door and the rest of the house, is good. 11.-A well ventilated closet for > work clothes, located near the rear door, is desirable, 12. One bedroom on the ground floor is essential. 13. Stairs to the second floor should be located so traffic need not pass thru the living room. 14. All bed rooms should have closets. 15. Bedding and linen storage space is essential. 16. .Bathroom space should be provided, even though complete plumbing is .not installed at tha time the house is built. Such •& rfrbm may serve as a sewing room, a playroom, or a child's bedroom until fixtures can be added. Miss Loper concludes with this paragraph; "Conveniently arranged, well built farm homes can oon^ tribute much to the comfort, health, happiness, and m.ental. well-being of the families who Uye f in them, In the past, too many of? V them have'been copied from town;. houses, or, like Topsy, have 'jujtV growed'. CarefuJ planning will re>.
